Book Review: Girl On The Train

 

sooooo I think I might be the only person who didn’t like this book. Here’s how I saw it.

main girl: drunk and a hot mess, ruining everyone’s lives

mystery girl/couple that main girl sees from train: super boring

main girl’s ex husband and his new fam: I couldn’t get interested bc I was wondering why main girl isn’t in mandatory rehab yet

main girl’s roommate: yo, I felt way bad for this chick. she felt bad for main girl and let her live in her apartment and main girl keeps barfing and peeing everywhere

obviously I stopped halfway and looked up the ending. I’m not even shocked by how it all turned out. I felt like it was trying to hard to be Gone Girl but without me being invested in anything that was happening.

This article goes into the idea of why adding the word “Girl” into a book title adds to the marketing and thrillers that we love.

my review: 2/5 , because I appreciate creativity

average review on goodreads: 3.8/5

Galentine’s Day

Oh Leslie Knope. there is so much to thank you for (waffles, weird compliments, more waffles..) but the best thing you have bequeathed the world is Galentine’s Day. What is Galentine’s Day you ask?

Obvs I’m into this. Waffles seemed a bit messy so we went with spaghetti and meatballs because that’s romantic a la Lady and the Tramp but also something you would never eat on an actual date :) mostly I was super excited about this fancy water.

BEHOLD! IMG_7024

Isn’t it the prettiest water you ever did see?? shout out to pinterest for bringing this into my life! Seriously have never been so proud. My entire life has been leading to lemon + raspberry water

I think Leslie Knope would be proud. We did good girl. And yes I screenshot my friend’s snap haha I forgot to take pictures other than of the water!

Have yall checked out Rachel Antonoff’s line? She’s a genius and once I saw Jamie Lee Curtis/Dean Munsch rocking the uterus sweater I immediately had to purchase this shirt. Uteruses before duderuses!

My favorite part of the night (other than the bomb brownie with fudge and strawberries on top) was us going around the table saying what we loved most about ourselves. Me: Right now I’m diggin’ my hair. Ever since my new haircut things have been falling into place beautifully and I feel like Houston’s humidity has got nothing on me. sassy hair. haha when you have battled with humidity for this long it’s a triumph people! the girls had such sweet things to say and I love that we all had a moment to shine. And of course we rounded out the evening watching a Rachel McAdam’s film, About Time, which honestly has one of the nicest soundtracks.

Happy Galentine’s Day!

So Much Etc

Hiiii it’s been a hot minute

Quick life update:

This yoga challenge has been kicking my butt and I’m so grateful for it #yogaeverydamnday

Last month I accidently (and tragically) washed my favorite sweater (ok not really a sweater but in Texas it is..) instead of dry cleaning it. I looked and looked for it but couldn’t find it on JCrew’s website or in store. until yesterday!! Do yourself a favor and get one! Or three like I did because I’m not ever letting this baby go!

I enjoy spin classes?! No one is more surprised than me. Truly.

I got these beautiful loafers!! Life will never be the same <3
