Waiting on Wednesday - 11

I'm waiting for...

Project Runway
Season 6

Release date: August 20, 2009

I am not a fashion maven or clothes shopping expert. I'm just a jeans and t-shirt kinda gal. However, this clothing designer show, Project Runway, is the one reality tv show that is my guilty pleasure to watch. I'm a fan of this TV series and have been watching since the start. My favorite season to date is Season One with winner Jay McCarroll. I love to watch the fashion pieces that come out of this show. They are so amazing and creative. I also like to see how the designers grow from the experience of sewing and designing under pressure.

Bonus: Heidi Klum and Tim Gunn rock!

Favorite Tim Gunn quote: Make it work.

Here are some Project Runway blogs I like to visit:

My book tie-in:

I'm going to pull out a book from my tbr pile.

Bohemian Manifesto: A Field Guide to Living on the Edge
by Laren Stoverwith
illustrations by Izak

Description from
Bohemianism is a way of life, a state of mind, an atmosphere. It is not a trend, its a timeless movement. It is about living beyond convention. BOHEMIAN MANIFESTO explores and joyfully celebrates the creativity, the originality, and the splendor of a lifestyle and spirit shared by free-thinking, free-living artists, poets, writers, sculptors, musicians, and intellectuals. This is the first book to distill and categorize all the ingredients of Bohemian life. In a witty and engaging style, Laren Stover examines the contents of a Bohemians closet, bathroom, and bookshelf. She explains the allure of absinthe, why it isnt wise to leave a Bohemian unattended in your home--you could return to find nude nymphs painted on your lamp shades--and how to identify what type of Bohemian you might be.

Take a peek at some of the beautiful illustrations at the book site which is what drew me to purchasing the book.

  1. I'm the anti-fashionista, but I love this show! Tim Gunn, however, makes me love this show. The 20th is really soon, I sadly didn't even know when the new season was starting

  2. I enjoy Tim Gunn and the show as well. Thanks for the reminder!

  3. Saw that your living in SF! Well, I am living in Santa Rosa right now and currently working on a novel about a group of high schoolers in SF. Much like Gossip Girl type but probably less sex.I found your blog browsing and I have been finding more and more great blogs dedicated to books and people who love to read. I am an aspiring novelist myself and am trying to expand my blog followers. I am hoping once I am able to do that I might be able to get interviews with authors I like and help promote them. Possibly even do contests! If you're interested in helping me out, please follow me as I will follow you. Sorry if this comes off as shameless self promotion. I hope to read more updates! Thank you so much, Aleece!

  4. I am *slightly* obsessed with Project Runway. And Tim Gunn. I'm disappointed that it's moving from Bravo, and I'm hoping it won't change it, but I'm still psyched. It's been too long.

  5. I really like that guy Christian that won. He's funny. I don't watch it much though. I adore Heidi Klum! She's so funny and cute.
