Holy moly, remember when I used to post The Friday 5 each week? I think this was most of y’all’s favorite post!! And don’t you worry — of course I included gifs!
- Reading: I don’t think anyone believes how often I read. I always, always have a book in my bag, on my bedside table, and honestly sometimes just a couple inside my bed. While I sleep. Been doin’ that since I was a kid — who needs a little spoon when you can curl up to a book? Kidding. I typically read non-fiction, thrillers, or anything to do with marketing, but last fall I dipped into the poetry world. If you are a female and have not checked out either of Rupi Kaur’s books, you are missing out! Her poetry is simply beautiful. It is raw, powerful, and uplifting. She truly has a way with words. Check out Milk and Honey and The Sun and Her Flowers.
- Listening to: I’ve gone through phases of enjoying podcasts, but lately I am really into one in particular: The Skinny Confidential. It’s a male and female’s perspective of all things health, wellness, business, and relationships. It’s educational and hilarious. The couple recently married and their back-and-forth banter is hilarious. I learn something new in every episode.
- Shopping: Well, in case you missed my top Amazon purchases of 2017, you can read that here. Aside from that, I bought this backpack from Lululemon and have been wearing it nonstop. I lug around a lot of crap for work (laptop, camera, lenses, let’s not start on how heavy my makeup bag is — jk), and it kills my shoulder carrying a tote. So I said screw it and got a backpack. It’s a thousand times more comfortable aaaand I can shove my gym clothes in it.
- Working on: I’m going to do a separate post on this, but I’ve started a closed facebook group for all my ladies doing great things. I’ll explain in more detail later, but if you’re someone who wants to join an online community full of passionate chicks, come hang with us HERE! It’s all about empowering, exciting, and engaging one another to reach our goals and be the most successful version of ourselves. I’ve always kicked myself for not listening to my grandmother and joining a sorority in college, so this is about as close as I’m gonna get. Minus the keg parties. Unless anyone wants to… 😉
