I have six — count them: SIX — library books due before the end of the month, and I am determined to read them ALL before they are due. Can I do it? Who knows? Am I going to try my darndest? Oh yes! If anyone has any tips for powering through reading (and enjoying it), my DMs on Instagram are open!
This week was insane, just as last week was, but I think I’m getting the hang of this new client and new role I’m taking on it. It’s a challenge, but who doesn’t love a challenge?
this week’s good things: I’m still dog-sitting so cuddles have been in abundance, I was able to get gas after all of Nashville freaked out and mass bought the fuel around me, I have so many good books to read this weekend!
one | a book list
I can’t believe it’s almost beach weather again. I feel like the first half of 2021 flew by. I love this wrap up of the 20 best beach reads for 2021. My picks are Such a Quiet Place by Megan Miranda, The Chosen and the Beautiful by Nghi Vo, and Malibu Rising by Taylor Jenkins Reid.
two | strengthen your friendships
As we begin to start entering into more normal social situations, it can be hard to have a conversation any deeper than “Wow, I can’t believe we’re actually here.” It may sound silly, but I love this breakdown from The Everygirl on how to have deeper conversations. My favorite tip? Start with curiousity.
three | fashion find
I’ve always been a bow girl. I never grew out of the phase, and I especially love it on dainty jewelry. I stumbled upon this necklace on Carly’s blog, and I may just have to snag it for myself.
four | have a laugh
Did you put all of your happiness on the coveted afternoon walk this time last year? Then, this one is for you.
five | currently reading
I did it. I started Booktok and Bookstagram’s most hyped book of the year, From Blood and Ash. Poppy is the Maiden. No one can see her face, no can interact with her, and nothing can happen to her until her Ascension to the gods. Everything is in Poppy’s hands, but she refuses to be a damsel in distress. She wants to fight back against what was taken from her, and nothing will stop her from becoming her own person, even if it means the god’s may find her unworthy. I’m planning to power-read the rest of this on Saturday, and I am stoked.
