Girlboss; a review

Sophia Amoruso became one of my biggest inspirations about 3 years ago when I first read her book #Girlboss. I absolutely loved the book and was so inspired by her lifestyle and rise to power through the internet. The book was filled with life and business tips, gave an extremely real view on life. Now, Netflix has created a series based on the book (and therefor Sophia’s life) and so far I really like it!

The show starts later in Sophia’s life than the book so I feel it might have left out some of her history, but I’m really hoping that in the coming episodes they address her past more. I think Britt Robertson is really great as Sophia and really captures the driven energy I felt when reading the book. I’ve never been to San Francisco but the show shot the city beautifully and shows how much inspiration can be found in one city. I’m only on episode 5 but I’m really excited to keep watching and see Sophia’s life played out in another way.

Here’s a fun review of the show (with no spoilers!)

Buy the book!! It’s totally worth it!!

Xoxo,

Spring scents

Candles are a favorite interior design accessory and over the past few years my collection has grown progressively. The other day I was ready to relax and watch netflix and decided I wanted to light some candles. It was a really nice spring day out, and I realized my candles were much to heavy for the weather. I’ve decided that I need to diversify my candle collection and add some more springy/summery scents.

I saw this candle the other day while browsing through American Eagle. As soon as I smelled it I knew I had to add it to my collection.It’s a little tangy yet sweet at the same.

French Lavender

 

Scent: French Lavender

Where to buy it: Bath and Body works

This is one of my FAVORITE scents from B&B!! I have had this candle multiple times, and  I keep coming back to it. The scent is light and springy, but is also appropriate for winter in my opinion because lavender is such a warm scent.

Eucalyptus mint

 

Scent: Eucalyptus Mint

Where to buy it: Bath and body works

You guessed it, Eucalyptus mint happens to be my other favorite scent from B&B. The mint is balanced out by the eucalyptus creating a really relaxing scent perfect for warmer weather.

Yankee is such a quality brand of candles. The scent is really strong and sweet and I love this little glass container it comes in.
