Dear Diary,

It's day 187 of the shelter-in-place quarantine strategy. I am getting stir-crazy. I miss visiting with my friends and family. My dog is getting tired of my talking. I have read 120 books. I have only seen toilet paper in a store once since this ordeal started. Something has to give...

Just kidding - about the number of books I read. Everything else "feels" accurate. LOL! 😆

Readeropolis is excited to participate in the Life’s A Beach giveaway hop from May 12 through May 26! This giveaway hop is hosted by The Kids Did It ( and The Mommy Island (

I am looking forward to hanging out at backyard barbecues and parties with friends and family and to visiting the library. What are you looking forward to doing when we return to the "new" normal?

Readeropolis is giving away a copy of InStyle Parties: The Complete Guide to Easy, Elegant Entertaining All Year Round by The Editors of InStyle at this giveaway hop stop (US only, 18+ years old, see terms and conditions in giveaway widget).

~~~~~~~~~ Book Description ~~~~~~~~~ 

Want to throw an A-list party without spending heaps of time and money? "In Style: Parties", the complete guide to easy, elegant entertaining, is the one-stop guide to making every event stylish and personal, and it proves once and for all that entertaining at home can be easy, fabulous, and fun. Organized in three sections, the book includes: the basics of party preparation, including what to serve and how to create the perfect atmosphere; complete party guides for every occasion, from dinner parties for 8 to cocktail parties for 30; and a listing of the top resources for food, drink, and decor, from artisanal cheeses and exotic chocolates to flowers and flat wear. The book begins with the basics section, which arms readers with the essentials of party planning. In thorough yet accessible detail, this section provides tips on how to plan a menu, stock a bar, set a table, serve cocktails, and feed a crowd, efficiently and with finesse. Also covered are tips on invitations, decorations, and music, which set the tone for a special occasion. The heart of the book is twenty of the most popular party guides published in "In Style" magazine over the last five years. Playful themes, fresh and simple recipes, sexy drinks, elegant decor, handy timetables, and a non-stuffy approach make it easy to stay on top of all the little details. Readers can follow the guides closely, mix up elements from different guides to suit their unique vision, or simply use them as inspiration. With its elegant illustrations and vibrant images of celebrity-studded evens, colorful drinks, luscious foods, and sophisticated decor, "In Style: Parties" put the fun of parties first.
