‘Get Your Sh*t Together’ | Sarah Knight (2016)
When I first read the title of the book, I was a bit surprised. It’s not often you see self help books that are cursing on the cover. I’m not a fan of self help books, however, the title intrigued me. I picked up the book and read the line that made me buy it. It was, “[...] this is not a traditional self-help book. It's more of a let-me-help-you-help-yourself-help book.” I was sold. The author comes off as charming and realistic, while still being able to help you help yourself.
It’s an easy read, and I can confidently say that reading it and applying the ideas from it to my own life has made a really big, positive impact on my life. The book is available on Amazon, as well as in stores such as Target. If you enjoy it, check out the authors other books, “Calm the F*ck Down,” and “The Life Changing Magic of Not Giving a F*ck.”
‘Someone Great’ (2019)
This is my favorite movie and it’s comforting to watch and it never gets old. The movie is about Jenny, a journalist in her late 20’s who is broken up with by her boyfriend of nine years. The breakup was a product of Jenn getting her dream job, on the other side of the country. The day after the breakup, Jenny calls her best friends, Blair and Erin, who drop what they’re doing to help their bestie through this heartbreak. And that includes going to a big concert and club event called Neon Classic. The trio prepare for the night, scrambling for tickets, drugs, clothes all while dealing with their own problems in their romantic relationships.
I promise you, if you need a movie that you can watch a million times and it never gets old, this is it. It’s romantic and heartbreaking all while being hilarious and realistic. And it’s the perfect movie for a girl’s night in.
‘Red (Taylor’s Version)’ | Taylor Swift (Nov. 12, 2021)
All anyone in my circle can talk about is the release of “Red Taylor’s Version”, by Taylor Swift on Nov. 12. If you’re unaware of the situation, Scooter Braun royally screwed Talor Swift over and made a profit out of her creativity and hard work. Without getting into the entire situation, Swift now has to re-record all of her previous albums. And while the situation is frustrating, fans are standing by Swift and supporting her more than ever.
And all anyone who’s interested in Swift’s music can talk about is this release, happening this Friday, Nov. 12. Especially a 10 minute version of the popular song “All Too Well.” I personally cannot wait to pretend I’m heartbroken, and sing my heart out to this song and I know I’m not alone in that.
The third season of the Netflix original series “You” starring Penn Badgley and Victoria Pedretti was released Oct. 15. SInce it’s release, similar to the main character Joe, fans have become obsessed. Myself included. If you haven't seen the third season, spoilers ahead! The third season shows Joe and Love living their new suburban life with their new baby, Henry. All seems perfect, until both Joe and Love are unfaithful, resulting in murder from both parties.
The show is interesting, and keeps you guessing what is going to happen next. It has sex, violence, romance, and often times the three are intertwined. If you’re looking for a chilling show to watch, check out You on Netflix.
