    Charlotte Walsh Likes to Win: A Book Review

    Charlotte Walsh Likes to Win. It’s a book title and a powerful statement in one. Charlotte Walsh is on the ride of her life. She’s running for a Senate seat in her home state of Pennslyvania, and she’s running against an old, white, incumbent, male. Nothing about this race is going to be easy for her, but she wants to fix what she believes to be past mistakes. I can relate a lot to Charlotte, and I think a lot of other women can as well. She’s responsible for taking care of everything — her career, her employees, her kids, her spouse, and herself when she has the time. She’s got…

    Catching My Eye | 7.12.19

    Lately, I’ve been feeling like every week is the same. Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday drag by with me checking the hour every hour, and then Thursday and Friday are gone in the blink of an eye. I’ve been really busy lately with moving, but things are slowly coming together. I got my bedspread last night, and despite finding two spiders crawling around in it (EW!), I absolutely love it. This weekend, I’m tackling more organization and decoration in my room and throughout the apartment. If you’ve got any tips, please send them my way! But for now, let’s get into what’s been catching my eye… 1. This insight into Alexandria…

    10 Reading Habits You Shouldn’t Be Ashamed Of

    I believe everyone appreciates books in a different way. I also believe we can all enjoy books in a variety of ways, and that’s okay. There is no one right way to read a book. There is no one right type of book to read. And there is no one in this world that should make you feel guilty about what or how you like to read. Let’s get started with the 10 reading habits you shouldn’t be ashamed of. 1. Reading more than one book at a time. I used to have a friend that would shame me for reading more than one book at a time. It’s something…

    Top 5 Newsletters To Get In Your Inbox

    There’s nothing I love more than reading a good article, and then, sharing it. I probably read more articles online than the average person, but it’s how I take mental breaks rather than surfing social media. I’m not fantastic at finding articles on my own unless they are from my favorite bloggers and websites. Instead of scouring the Internet for hours finding the perfect think-piece, I rely on a few newsletters to enlighten me. Here are my top 5 newsletters to get in your inbox today. Let’s get started! 1. 5 Smart Reads This is one of my favorite additions to my inbox by far. Hitha Palepu is mostly known for her book How…

    Catching My Eye | 7.5.19

    I moved! Yesterday was exhausting, I’m still unpacking, and my life is in absolute shambles, but I moved, and I am so excited! I had been living in the same place since I moved to Nashville, and it was a great place, but I’m excited about this new adventure! I’m living with one of my littles from my sorority, and we are both so thrilled to be living together after talking about it for so long. Other than moving, nothing is really on my brain. I’m looking forward to throwing out things that don’t bring me joy (I know I should have done this before I moved, but we all…

    The Good in Goodbye…

    Before you start panicking, I’m not saying goodbye to blogging! I’m moving this week from the first and only home I’ve had in Nashville, and it’s got me thinking a lot about goodbyes. I’ve never been a fan of goodbyes, and unfortunately, I’ve had to say a lot of them in 2019. Some of them were harder than others, but I’d be lying if I didn’t say all of them were hard and still affecting me in some way or another today. The grief of a goodbye hits us at odd times — when we least expect it and definitely feel like we should be over it — but grief…

    June Reading Wrap Up

    Happy July! June was a crazy busy month for me with social engagements, and July is looking to be a crazy month with moving, but somehow I always make time for reading. I find it helps to commit to reading at least one chapter before I go to bed, and it also helps me sleep better since I’m taking myself away from the computer screen before getting some shut-eye. Let’s get started with my June reading wrap up!

    Catching My Eye | 6.28.19

    I’m not going to lie to all of you — I’ve been really tired lately. I’m not sure if it’s because of everything going on (big events, moving, etc), but I just want to curl up under my comfort and sink into a world of dreams for the rest of the weekend. Despite being the most tired I have been in a long time, this week was still a crazy one. I met up with a new friend on Monday, tackled a bunch of new leadership tasks on Tuesday and Wednesday, got BBQ with my brother and Tori on Thursday, and I’m heading to the Bad on Paper live show…

    Ghosted: A Review

    Sarah doesn’t think she will ever find love again, but then Eddie comes around. Sarah is from California, but she is back in London after her recent divorce for her yearly trip home when she meets the man she knows she could actually spend the rest of her life with. She doesn’t know Eddie for long, just one week, but she knows it’s different than anything she’s ever felt before. Until he ghosts her. Ghosted is about feeling a love that is so real you can’t explain it — it’s a love you can feel in your bones — a love you’re willing to look absolutely crazy to find, but you…
