Boston, Massachusetts

Boston, Massachusetts

Hello, World!

I’m so excited to share my fall break trip to Boston, Massachusetts with you. For the last two years, my best friend, Holly and I have talked about me visiting her in Boston. Due to our differing schedules, it hadn’t worked yet. This being [potentially] my last year on the east coast, however, I decided to take the plunge and visit during fall break. We were very excited about my visit and Holly had a ton planned for us to do and see. Because I have so many photos, I wanted to break it down by days and explain each day.  Continue reading “Boston, Massachusetts”

November Road by Lou Berney

November Road by Lou Berney

Hello, World.

My first semester of 3L is flying by, but I’ve managed to keep up with Book of the Month picks! Two picks I finished and I enjoyed were Goodbye, Paris and The Silence of the Girls. Due to my schedule, I won’t be doing full reviews of those, but if you want to see my quick thoughts on books I don’t write full reviews for, follow along on Instagram! I usually post a mini-review via Instagram stories. Continue reading “November Road by Lou Berney”

Me You Everything by Catherine Isaac

Me You Everything by Catherine Isaac

Hello, World.

 

I’m here today with a review of my final August TBR book! I realize it’s September, but I had trouble reading this book my last week home in California because I was trying to enjoy time with my family. Still, I finished it last Wednesday, and am so glad I got through it, even if it’s a bit late. Continue reading “Me You Everything by Catherine Isaac”

Gearing up for 3L

Gearing up for 3L

Hello, World.

I start my 3L year of law school tomorrow. As I type that, it feels so weird because I feel like I just started school. Still, at the same time, I also feel like I’ve been in law school for much longer than 2 years. Law school has been a myriad of emotions and experiences, and while I remember many things fondly, I’m excited to enter the final stretch. Continue reading “Gearing up for 3L”

The Summer Wives by Beatriz Williams

The Summer Wives by Beatriz Williams

Hello, World.

My second choice for Book of the Month for July was The Summer Wives by Beatriz Williams. This is also the third book of four for my August to-be-read. I’d heard really great things about this read, and after loving The Lost Vintage, I wanted to read more historical fiction. This book takes place in three different years: 1930, 1951, and 1969. All great years! It also takes place on a small island off the east coast and it felt like the perfect summer read. Continue reading “The Summer Wives by Beatriz Williams”

Glossier Products I’m Loving

Glossier Products I’m Loving

Hello, World.

A goal for myself this year is to try to embrace simplicity. I try to streamline the time I spend on things that aren’t really filling me up and spend more time doing the things that do fill me up. One thing I’m trying to also embrace is my natural self. This means I’m trying to wear less makeup and go for a more “natural” look most days. One method through which I’m implementing this change is by buying more Glossier makeup because the brand’s motto is “skin first, makeup second.” Since moving to Virginia two years ago, my skin has undergone some changes for the worse. My skin is so much drier than it’s ever been and I’m hoping that wearing less makeup most days will help keep my skin moisturized. Continue reading “Glossier Products I’m Loving”

The Late Bloomer’s Club by Louise Miller

The Late Bloomer’s Club by Louise Miller

Hello, World!

I recently got a notification from Goodreads that I met my year-long reading goal, which was to read 12 books. So far this summer, I’ve read nine books. That’s more than I’ve ever read during summer and more than I’ve read for fun in a long time. When I realized Louise Miller had a new book coming out so soon after her first book, I was so excited. I read The City Baker’s Guide to Country Living last December and fell in love with it. I loved Guthrie, Vermont, the cast of characters, and the writing. It felt cozy and warm and happy. Continue reading “The Late Bloomer’s Club by Louise Miller”

Ghosted by Rosie Walsh

Ghosted by Rosie Walsh

Hello, World.

I recently finished my first August book, which was Ghosted by Rosie Walsh. I’d heard really great things about this book, and loved the episode of “No Thanks We’re Booked” where Katie and Mollie interviewed Walsh. I recently joined Book of the Month club, and I’m so excited. I wanted to join for roughly a year and I never thought I’d be able to read enough to justify the subscription, but after reading so much this summer, I want to make reading for fun a bigger part of my daily life. If that means waking up a bit earlier, so be it. I decided to sign up when there was a special where you got a bonus credit, so I got two books for the price of the subscription. I also love that you can skip months (which is partially why I ended up going with this subscription). Anyway, Ghosted was my pick and The Summer Wives was my bonus book.
