1. Three things that don’t really matter:

- I finally hung up our mirror in the bedroom. In fact, it only took 2 months but we are 100% moved in as in I’m not buying/hanging/decorating another damn thing.

- Love this little lace top from Express.

- This photo turned out much blurrier than I thought it was.

  2. I don’t trust any adult woman who claims she’s never used a hair straightener to do a quick iron on her outfit before running out the door.

    Bang Bang - Jessie J (feat. Ariana Grande and Nicki Minaj)

    Tuesday morning jam.

    Currrently jamming out at my desk, embarrassing myself and scaring my coworkers (I have headphones on, no worries). I also dance partied in my car before going into the office. No shame.

    Disclaimer: ever since I finished by MBA about a year ago I’ve been pretty much exclusively reading books that require little to no brain power (aka Young Adult Fantasy) so if you’re wondering why that seems like the theme it’s because it is.

    Sanctum 

    image

    Themes: suicide, depression, sexual abuse, friendship

    Series: Yup and the GD third book isn’t published yet.

    Love story: duh, it’s Young Adult, so yes

    Gist: A young women (who is OMG, not white) literally goes to hell and back to save her best friend who is trapped in a level of hell designed to house those who take their own lives.

    Review: Highly recommend - super refreshing to read about a female lead who is not the typical white China doll that you normally see in Young Adult novels and can also hold her own, is flawed, and cares deeply about the people in her life.

    Shatter Me

    image

    Themes: dystopian, evolution, super powers, sulking until you are rescued

    Series: unfortunately yes

    Love story: like everyone in the book is in love with this girl so yeah

    Gist: A story written with tortured and superfluous descriptions of a young women who has the ability to kill with just one touch and is devastatingly beautiful (which every character mentions at every opportunity). Said girl is imprisoned in an asylum until she’s removed to be used as a military weapon in an army made up of mostly teenage boys for no reason at all. Despite her powers and beauty the main character (who is the only female character is the book) spends most of her time writing emo diary entries in her journal while she waits for male characters to rescue her inexplicably beautiful ass.

    Review: I’d rather swallow a box of razor blades than read another book in this series.

    Under the Never Sky

    image

    Themes: dystopian, virtual reality, radioactivity, evolution, society

    Series: trilogy - all the books are published and they’re all pretty good

    Love story: yup - two kids from two different worlds fall in love and try to save everyone

    Gist: Society pretty much functions in a virtual reality that we experience through a device that sounds suspiciously like Google Glass. A young woman is banished from aforementioned society, for reasons that are not her fault, and is cast out into the unprotected world, which happens to have a radioactive sky and is full of warring tribes, cannibals, and other dangers. She finds a guy, he saves her, they dig each other, they join together to try to save both their worlds.

    Review: Really good poolside read - very little brain power required. I enjoyed the whole series.

    Demons at Deadnight

    image

    Themes: demons, hot guys, prophecy, fairy god-fairies

    Series: yes but only two have been written so far

    Love story: yes

    Gist: There are these six amazingly hot, 6-pack, highly stereotyped teenage guys who are all best friends, go to high-school together, hangout, and hunt and kill demons in their spare time. That is until their world is turned upside down by a stunningly attractive, sarcastic and clumsy teenage gal who happens to have the natural ability to track demons. High jinks ensue and hormones rage.

    Review: Do you like campy TV shows like Buffy the Vampire Slayer or Charmed? If you said yes then you’ll love these books. The entire story is either intentionally campy/hilarious or the mother/daughter duo who writes it are sexually repressed - either way I thought it was a fun read and would like to read more in this series.

  7. I held a 125lb snake on my last business trip. There’s not much else to say.

Edit: as to why - because why not? The snake handler also goaded me, he said I wasn’t strong enough to do it by myself and even had me hold it with another fellow from my party before he let me do it myself. I’m a sucker.

  8. Summer wedding outfit. I curled my hair about 10 minutes before and this is what it looks like now; my hair holds no curl.

  9. Anonymous asked:
    Who has influenced your life the most?

    At this point in my life I would say Mark has influenced me the most. We push each other to do new things and where I am now in my life is directly correlated with decisions we’ve made together. Sharing your life with someone is probably the biggest decision you’ll ever make.

  10. pksailing asked:
    If you could communicate to every person in your generation, what would you say to them?

    Other people’s opinions of you don’t invalidate who you are. Just do you, don’t worry what anyone else has to say about it.
