And I've been soaking up books like I've never done before. Here are my favorite reads so far:
<3 If you have to cry, go outside and Normal gets you Nowhere by Kelly Cutrone - She is amazing, if you want to be empowered, inspired and motivated read it. She's honest, straight forward and just amazing. I'm not exactly great at describing books but Kelly Cutrone is definetely one of my kindred spirits. She really keeps it real, and says it like it is.
<3 Fabulosity by Kimora Lee Simmons - Another power lady, who I admire for her business know how and attitude. She reminds us that we deserve the best, and should get the best of whatever we do. And that its important to be smart about things, including money, and the way you treat others.
<3 I am most definetely enjoying this book right now! It's Think by Lisa Bloom. She really makes me personally feel uneducated and that American culture, people and especially women are really dumbing down. And I completely agree with her, because she gives straight facts, that are evident in everyones surroundings and observations. And this may seem like a "funny" topic but it really brings light to a very serious topic that leads to larger problems. I'm still reading it, but I am in love with her sarcasm and her straight-forwardness. Please read this if you don't want to let America get dumber!
I just realized that all the books I've been reading are written by powerful and successful women. Its just a coincidence really. But it just shows, that maybe we should change up the people we're looking up to. And not just celebrities, but people who actually care to make a difference in the world.
So what's on your reading list?
