I layered a soft chiffon tee over one of my favorite dresses, and belted it in the middle to turn it into a skirt. It was the perfect loose outfit on this annoyingly windy day.
August favorites? Yeah, okay. These are worth mentioning.
FIRST THINGS FIRST. George Watsky’s new album came out in August and has been my workout savior. I don’t know how many times I can mention that I love trying to learn his songs and rap as fast as him, but it’s just so damn fun. “The One” and “Let’s Get High And Watch Planet Earth” are my favorite songs. I can’t wait to see his skinny self in October. Woooo.
NYX Butter Gloss in Eclair. I received this in an Ipsy bag and have been reaching for it every morning for a hint of color. Its buttercream frosting scent turns my lips into two fleshy cupcakes.
I read a lot of YA as inspiration for my own novels. I initially started this one for Go Read A Book, a new book club channel on YouTube. The inner dialogue of the two main characters was insanely accurate to how I felt as a self-conscious 16 year old. Without giving away too much, I enjoyed this unorthodox love story that had an unexpected dark side.
I’ve read quite a few books in the last couple of months, so I’m considering participating in National Novel Writing Month this November to write my own. I completed it last year, and though I don’t think I’ll continue with the book I started, I’m proud of myself for having a living manuscript. So we’ll see.
