Winter Reading List – Update

Happy Monday!

I was able to finish off my winter reads pretty early this time around. It probably had a lot to do with colder weather (who doesn’t love snuggling up with a good book in winter?!), shorter books, and more time. Here are my thoughts on each book I’ve recently read. Be on the look out for my next round of books I want to read up!

“I Thought It Was Just Me” – Brene Brown – Brene Brown doesn’t disappoint. She is a true inspiration. Her research on shame is depicted in this book and she truly makes it easy to relate to. Her choice of words and personal stories make it an interesting, yet educational read. I went in to this book not having much of an understanding of shame and leave this book with a good grasp on how to develop shame resilience.

“Jamaica” – Insight Guides – This was a helpful reference guide for my recent Jamaican vacation. I loved that a map was included and that each section of the book went through different areas of the island. It included must-sees, food/drink recommendations, and attraction guides. I even took it on vacation to brush up on while waiting for our plane to take off. It was definitely one of the better guides I had researched.

“Seriously… I’m Kidding” – Ellen Degeneres – If you are looking for a quick and upbeat read, look no further. It took me only a couple of hours within a couple of sittings to finish this book. Ellen is so funny and so light-hearted that it is so easy to pick it up at any time.

Winter Nail Polish Picks

I tend to go for a bold nail. I like color, I like texture, and most of all I just like to have fun with my manicures. Cold weather season is an extra special time for me to break out the dark, sparkly, shiny polish… which I clearly love! Here are my favorite winter nail polish picks from my own personal collection.

OPI – “Lucerne-Tainly Look Marvelous”
Ciate – “Dangerous Affair”
OPI – “Glitzerland”
OPI – “An Affair in Red Square”
Essie – “Aruba Blue”
Red Carpet – “Nominated For…”

Favorite Fall Nail Polish

Here are just a handful of my most favorite polishes for fall from my personal collection! To me, nothing beats a dark and vampy shade on my nails for cooler weather. Enjoy, XOXO.
