    Book Review: You v.s. the World

    Last month I talked about a book giveaway and for the first time, I’m not giving any books away. I’ll need to decide what to do with the books I have collected and the path forward. Am I the only one still reading physical books? Are books no longer cool? Or are the books I am reading no longer considered recent? I did gather some of these books while working on a degree, promising myself to read and share later. A condition I recently learned in known as Tsundoku is some parts of the world, which later prompted a pairing down of said collection. Now that later has arrived, I…

    A New F*cking Book Giveaway

    Tell me I am not the only one with a pile of books next to the bed. I finally manged to unpack the last box of books. Better yet, all of them are on the shelves! The other day I talked to you about my experience with The KonMari Method and what I found works for me-curating chaos. Which is why I feel like this is the right time to officially read Unf*ck Your Habitat: You’re Better Than Your Mess and The Subtle Art of Not Giving a F*ck: A Counterintuitive Approach to Living a Good Life. Two books which by osmosis I have absorbed wisdom and knowledge by occasionally…

    Capturing Paris with the Book Fairies

    When the word came down that our days in Europe was coming to an end, I panicked.  No!  This can’t be happening!  I have so much more to see!  There simply wouldn’t be enough time to see it all.  After stressing about it I decided that just because I was moving, it didn’t mean I would never come back this way again.  I made peace with myself and focused on what I really wanted to see before I left.  On the short list was Paris.  I knew right then I must find someone who loved Paris as much as I did.  I rang for the Book Fairy. “You’re moving?” “Afraid so.”…

    Wandering Unicorn Loot

    I believe in unicorns. Up until the last couple of years I have kept that knowledge as a secret and unicorn sightings were pretty rare.  So you can imagine my surprise this summer when unicorn merchandise started turning up in force.  It started with the Starbucks announcement in April that they were selling a limited edition Unicorn Frappuccino.  I was sad I wouldn’t be able to try it.  My beautiful cousin in California purchased one and messaged me with every sip of her experience.  I sat in anticipation as it started off sweet and then quickly turned sour.  There came a point when enough was enough and we had to…

    Sweet Honey Iced Tea, I went to the gym

    Okay. I have no idea what possessed me to decide that two weeks before we leave for Korea , I should try to go back to the gym.  Probably something to do with trying to establish a good habit so that it will be easier to stick with it.  Or it is because we have once again become a one car family, and that means I found myself near the gym on the military post every morning.  Dropping off my husband and wondering why I didn’t take advantage of the free gym. Yeah. So why not? I will tell you why.  Talking yourself into getting physically fit, while in the…

    March’s Ten Minute *Winks* and Giveaway

    March has been a month where I did surprisingly very little reading in favor of updating my European bucket list! 1.  I think looking up actual dates and considering different ways of traveling, creates an excitement. Possibly a way to escape-in much the way reading a book is an adventure for both the mind and the soul!  Or maybe in the way it romances us, creating an internal build up of anticipation of an experience much like the way we look forward to an interesting date.  Until we board that plane or step in to that home away from home, we have so much to envision and discuss.  There is really…
