Pinspiration 1

I used to do Pinspiration posts on here and I loved them. Since I stopped blogging, the site that I used to make them closed and so I had to archive all the posts since the links broke. But I want to start doing it again! Pinspirations are me taking super cute outfits I find on Pinterest and recreating them with actually purchasable items.

I started out with a tough one, but an outfit I would 100% like to wear in real life. You know, if I actually worked in an office and didn't wear workout clothes all day...

Found Here

It was actually really hard to find a button up shirt that worked, so I went full weird...

Here is the shopable look that you can shop here:

Every year, my mom, sister, and I make reading goals on Goodreads for how many books we want to read that year. This year, I made mine 40 and I'm crushing it so far (if I do say so myself). I've been so enjoying some of the books I've read recently so I wanted to share them here. Book nerds, unite!!

Here are a few of my top favorites:

Manhattan Beach was really beautifully written and made me sad to leave the story. Definitely not an upper, but it's a great story and the characters feel real.

Next Level Basic - you can give me shit for loving this one all you want, but it was actually really fun and surprisingly really empowering. Like whatever you like and don't apologize for it!

The Silent Patient - finally a book with a believable twist! The ultimate quick read whose ending you probably won't guess, I sure didn't.

Code Name Lise - it took me a bit to get into this one, but once I did, I couldn't put it down. This woman was so inspirational. I love that the author wrote her truthfully; she was flawed, but insanely brave and kick ass. And also, next time I complain about something, remind me that I've never had all my toenails pried off without SAYING A PEEP.

Daisy Jones & The Six - this book was so well written and the characters so believeable, that I kept wanting to google the band like it wasn't a piece of fiction. I immediately checked out a book by the same author because I loved this one so much.

The Seven Husbands of Evelyn Hugo - same author as the book above and just as good a book. Oh man, I love how she writes people. You want to hug them, slap them, and be them all at once. And borrow their wardrobes...

Maybe You Should Talk to Someone - this book made me cry a couple times and ultimately made me want to try even harder in therapy.

Sleeping Beauties - I have obnoxiously sung the praises of this book to everyone in my family and I don't care! It's so good! Go read it! 

What books are you guys reading right now?
