If I were to become stranded on an island and I could only bring one item with me, I'd take my phone (that decision would be made easily, with no hesitation). From nail art to online shopping to Kindle books and cat videos, my phone would fulfill all my stranded needs (oh, did I not mention my island has unlimited, high speed wireless internet connection?).
Among some of my favorite sites to visit is HeTexted.com where girls can give and get advice on decoding perplexing guy texts (because everyone who owns a phone has received at least one 'wth' text). The website is essentially a relationship forum that allows for unbiased conversations on dating questions or dilemmas. And if you're like me and you're looking for the spark notes version of the web site, you should probably run to your nearest Barnes and Nobles or Amazon account and check out the "He Texted: The Ultimate Guide to Decoding Guys" book. Authored by Lisa Winning and Carrie Henderson McDermott, the founders of the HeTexed website, this book is an easy and fun read with valuable advice and real-life scenarios that are bound to ring a bell or bring back some what-was-I-thinking memories.
As part of the Her Campus network, I had the wonderful opportunity to attend the HeTexted book launch event at the Nicole Miller boutique in Soho. With its feminine decor and splashes of color, the Nicole Miller boutique was the perfect setting for the HeTexted launch party. The authors were absolutely lovely, the store was lined with awe-inspiring prints, and the hosts were great company (and cupcakes were served, if there was any doubt on how much fun I had). At the end of the evening, HerCampus generously provided gift bags that included a copy of HeTexted. As you can probably already tell, I was inspired to create candy nail art based on the cover, and I spent the weekend reading more than halfway through the book.
Thank you to HeTexted, Her Campus, and Nicole Miller for an absolutely wonderful evening (and if I were to be stranded in the Nicole Miller shop with a copy of HeTexted, I'd accept and resign to my fate of fun prose and bright fashion).
He Texted: The Ultimate Guide to Decoding Guys is currently available to purchase online and in stores at Amazon and Barnes and Nobles.
Stay Pretty, Mackenzie M.
