Hey loves! So today we’re not just going to be beauty babes, we’re going to be BRAINY babes too! Doesn’t sound super sexy, but trust me, it is! In 2018 (and for the rest of forever) we’re trying to be hella well-rounded boss babes, right?? For me, that involves constantly seeking knowledge. Reading is a great way to improve your vocabulary, comprehension skills, and for me it improves creativity through inspiration. Here are a few of my current favorite books- both for the previously mentioned knowledge seeking but also for sheer pleasure! I hope you enjoy xx

Since You’ve Been Gone by Morgan Matson

One of my guilty pleasures in life is reading “teeny-bopper” type books about young love and friendship. Since You’ve Been Gone is one that I found searching endlessly on my old Kindle (RIP, old pal). It’s such a cute book about friendship, independence, and unexpected love. What would you do if your bff, soul sister, and the person you relied on to be your back bone just disappeared? Me, personally? I’d be lost, that’s for sure. See what happens in this really cute yet interesting book by Morgan Matson!

The 5 Love Languages by Gary Chapman

Have you ever done something you thought was extremely thoughtful, but the person you were doing it for didn’t seem to care? I think most of us have experienced this. It could simply be that your “Love Languages” {aka the way in which you personally communicate to someone that you care about them} are different. There’s absolutely nothing wrong with that, but this book will help you understand and identify what your love language is and help to improve your relationships with others by understanding them a little more.

Eat Pretty by Jolene Hart

Being pretty on the outside, starts with being pretty on the inside! I’m so obsessed with this one! I’ve always been a pretty healthy eater since I love my veggies and often stay away from meat. But this book truly breaks down the science behind almost anything and everything that could be in your foods. As with everything else, take it with a grain of salt. Everyone’s body is different so be sure to consult a doctor before making any big nutritional changes.

milk and honey by Rupi Kaur

This one isn’t your typical story book. It’s more of a book filled with poems that are all too relatable. Some will break your heart. Some will give you hope. Basically, this book is filled with some raw, honest truth about what some of us go through and how we feel. Grab a tissue with this one.

You are a Badass by Jen Sincero

Ahh, we’ve reached the last two. These two are special to me. They kick my ass into high gear! No B.S zone. Not only did I read this book, I listened to the audio version of it. You know what that means: Jen Sincero herself telling me that I AM A BADASS. So inspiring! Pick up this read if you want to “live an awesome life”! She also came out with a “You are a Badass at Making Money” which I have not read yet.. soooo brb running to Barnes and Noble to pick it up!

#GirlBoss by Sophia Amoruso

Okay jk I won’t go to Barnes and Noble until I tell you about another bad ass woman, Sophia Amoruso! I feel like I can say confidently that you have at least heard of or seen this book before. She is the definition of a business and life-in-general GLOW UP. In her early adulthood, Amoruso would dumpster dive and steal to get by. In 2016, she sold her brand Nasty Gal for $20 million! Pick up this read to get inspired and learn how Sophia took the internet and women’s vintage fashion by storm!
