First time doing this, but I really liked creating this list! Hopefully, I’ll be doing more of these in the future. This month hasn’t been super eventful with new products, but I’ve been reading more and catching up on somethings on Netflix. I’ve had a rough couple of weeks, and doing different things to distract me from my personal life has definitely helped. Also, I’ll be winding down on working, since I’m going back to school (SO EXCITED!) which means I’ll have more time to try new items and create more cute outfits! Now, let’s get to my favorites for this past month:
Lately, I’ve been listening to very upbeat music, most of them fall under “women empowerment” music, or that’s what I call it at least. That’s probably what I need in my life right now and I’m loving it.
Lizzo (favorite songs include Truth Hurts, Water Me, and Good as Hell)
Betty Who (songs: Mama Say, Human Touch, I Love You Always Forever, and Just Like Me)
Other songs: both Dancing On My Own and Call Your Girlfriend by Robyn, Don’t Want You Back– Bakermat &Kieza, Sexual– NEIKED, and Walls– Wingtip)
This seemed to be my month of books! I read two books and started another. Well… “read”, I use audible and I love it! Never really been much of an actual reader but I love books. Crazy I know. I also much rather read romance than anything else, so yes these are all romances. So audible has been a lifesaver. I use the monthly subscription option, which mine is about $7 a month for one book. So I’ve had a couple credits stored so I could read more!
Wrong by Jana Aston: I loved this book! It was so real, I read it in about two days (or nights..) There were definitely embarrassing parts throughout this book which were like OMG stop. embarrassing. More of a romance for younger women, I don’t think women past 35 would really like it (but I could be wrong). I say this because it does take place in college, with an almost graduate, and her friends. So, it’s in the headspace of a 22-year-old. Also, it’s VERY erotic, just a heads up. There are a lot of sex scenes lol. But onto the summary…
I don’t know how to quite word this summary, to make it quite intriguing as the authors summary is. So this is what the actual one is “I have a history of picking the wrong guy. Gay? Player? Momma’s boy? Check, check and check.
Now I can’t stop fantasizing about one of the customers at the coffee shop I work at between classes. It’s just a harmless crush, right? It’s not like I ever see this guy outside of the coffee shop. It’s not like I’m going to see him while attempting to get birth control at the student clinic. While wearing a paper gown. While sitting on an exam table. Because he’s the doctor. Shoot. Me.
But what if, for once, the man I’ve had the dirtiest, most scandalous fantasies about turned out to be everything but wrong?” (Taken for Goodreads Link here)
Not Quite Dating by Catherine Bybee: On the complete opposite side of romance novels, is Not Quite Dating. I say this because there was only one sex scene, most of this book will make your heart melt into a puddle. I cried a lot. But, it was still not one of those awful sappy romance novels- I’m just a crybaby overall.
“Waitress and single mom Jessica “Jessie” Mann is practical to a fault. Even if she had time to date, which she doesn’t, she’d be determined to provide her son with a more secure upbringing than the one she had—and that would mean a husband with big bucks. When Jack Morrison—a sexy-as-sin, seemingly broke customer with a cowboy hat and a seductive grin—tries to flirt with her, she shoots him down. She doubts a carefree dreamer like Jack can provide the financial stability she needs. Yet with Christmas just weeks away, and Jessie not wanting to spend it alone, the charming Texan is proving hard to resist.
As the heir to the Morrison luxury hotel empire, Jack is used to being fawned over. But Jack needs someone who will fall in love with him—not his wealth. He’s set his sights on Jessie, though her hardened heart just might get in the way…To be sure, he conceals his true identity and offers to help Jessie find the rich husband she seeks. But Jack’s daring charade may rob him of the holiday wish he wants most of all…” (Taken for Goodreads Link here)
Overruled by Emma Chase (started): So far, I’ve been very iffy if I’m even gonna finish this book. But, I do want to know what’ll happen so I will finish it.
(The summary made wasn’t good enough for me, so here’s me trying to word things correctly) But, it starts out with the main character, Stanton, finding out he knocked up his girlfriend while they’re in high school. They have a baby girl, Presley, and his girlfriend tells him to go to college and follow his dreams while she stays with the baby at home. Years later, he’s a lawyer in DC and sleeping with another woman, Sofia, who is also a lawyer. When he gets an invitation to his high school sweethearts wedding. He asks Sofia to help him win back his girl, which means bring her home to the middle of nowhere.
A Crime to Remember I watched this show with my mom and oh my god. We loved it. And went through all 6 seasons pretty quickly. We bought each season from Amazon. If you like crime shows, history, and murder cases, then I highly recommend this show. Set in the 1950s- 70s, each episode is an individual case, from kidnappings to serial killers. It reenacts what happened and how they solved them. Meaning before computers and forensics, which is incredibly interesting to see how they solved cases when they had nothing to start from.
Aggreskuto I feel like anyone who religiously watches Netflix knows about this show. It is a Japanese anime show just FYI, but definitely worth watching, even if you’re not into anime. Created by Sanrio (like hello kitty), Retsuko is a red panda who works for an accounting department. She’s 25, single, and lets her anger out at the karaoke bar singing metal. And that’s pretty much all you need to know.
My favorite outfits I’ve worn this month are:
