10 Books I've Read Recently

I've been going through quite a few audio-books on my commute and have a new found love for Nora Roberts' novels so I've read a ton of her books and have purchased a few more to read. I also must add that I don't purchase books without reading the ratings, so all of my picks came highly recommended and have, at the very least, 3 stars in my personal opinion

5 Books I've Read Recently

The Secrets of my Life by Caitlyn Jenner
I've been on a roll (audio) reading books in different genres. I've said it before but it makes my long commute to and from work a lot more enjoyable. I've never been big into books but audio-books have become my jam.

20 Books I've Read Recently

I'm an Audiobook reader/listener which helps my long commute to and from work to be a little more exciting. I've never been one who can sit down and indulge in a book so this is the perfect way to for me to "read" and I'd never be able to get through this amount of books without my Audible app.

An eye-opening, no-holds-barred memoir about life in the Church of Scientology, now with a new afterword by the author—the outspoken actress and star of the A&E docuseries Leah Remini: Scientology and the Aftermath

Friday Faves

As always I'm relieved it's Friday! I can't even complain that I had a crazy week or anything because it was quite stress-free for a change. I'm just looking forward to a fairly quiet weekend with no big plans or traveling so I can enjoy some downtime at home.

For the Love of Weekends

This week was a good one ~ I got started on some Christmas shopping, checked off a few house-to-do items, and today my coworkers and I are attending an awards luncheon for being nominated as one of the best businesses in the county.

I mentioned recently that I started listening to audiobooks on my commute which has made the drive so much more fulfilling than listening to music or talk radio. I finished The Girl on the Train on Monday and then started Behind Closed Doors. So far so good!

I've been on a major brussels sprouts kick recently and I've made a similar recipe but I love the addition of butternut squash in this Roasted Brussels Sprouts recipe even though I'd probably leave out the cinnamon since I'm not a fan.

My nails have been a train-wreck recently but as we approach some busier weekends with travel, social happenings, and some family fun, I have some gorgeous Fall Essie colors in mind.

Halloween is just around the corner so I shared some cute pet costumes on Wednesday to celebrate the occasion. I'm currently working on doctoring Lola's costume since it arrived too small.

I'm looking forward to catching up on some rest and blogging this weekend since the holidays are almost here and things are going to get BUSY!

I hope you have a fab weekend!

Friday Reflections

Four posts in one week...who am I? I guess that's what a mandatory hurricane curfew and a three-day weekend will do to you. No complaints here since I feel somewhat organized again.

My SIL's wedding is this weekend so that calls for pretty nails and this is the color combo I'm rolling with: Essie's Chinchilly (my favorite), Lady Like and Sugar Daddy.

I just recently found out about the soft as silk LuLaRoe leggings from a coworker so I had to buy a pair, except I cheated and found them for half the price on Amazon. They're from VIV Collection but honestly you can't tell the difference. I'm tempted to buy 10 more pairs!

Another Bath & Body Works haul happened recently because when 50% off 3-wick candles comes around... that's when I stock up. I got my usual fall/pumpkin candles but I also bought some year round scents such as Hello Beautiful.

I finished Amy Schumer's The Girl with the Lower Back Tattoo audiobook earlier this week and since then I've moved onto The Girl on The Train. I know I'm late to the party but I'm late to reading books altogether. So far I'm confused with the story but starting to pick up the pieces. I'm not sure I could sit through physically reading this book but the audio version will do on my commute to and from work.

The new Hello Kitty wine collection is quite adorable and since it's the weekend, why not share? 

Cheers to the weekend!
