Book 1: The Power, January 14

January 14, 2018

01. The Power, Naomi Alderman (Jan 14) It’s going to be that kind of year. I can already feel it. I read a review of this book in November, and grabbed it as soon as it hit the shelves in Tokyo in December. I think it may have taken some time to get here, but since […]

Book 13: The Life-Changing Magic of Not Giving a Fuck, November 14

13. The Life-Changing Magic of Not Giving a Fuck, Sarah Knight (November 14) I picked this one up on a whim. I got the Marie Kondo joke immediately from the title and cover, but knew that there have been other books written that are basically following the same principle: you need to give fewer fucks about […]

12. The Ministry of Utmost Happiness, Arundhati Roy (November 11) This is how behind I am: I completely forgot to list the final two books that I read in 2017. And I LOVED this one. I was just so caught up with the trip to the states a few days after I finished this one, that […]

As I said in an earlier post, I’m getting back into wearing makeup after a hiatus – and I wanted to try out something different. I’ve basically run out of all of the colors I used to wear, or they’ve just expired. So I have a chance to replace some things at the moment. I’ve […]

Things from Anastasia Beverly Hills: I am trying them!

November 29, 2017

You know what one of my favorite things about going back to the USA is? Visiting Sephora. Seriously, I love walking into those stores. And I’m not really that into wearing makeup, but those ladies are SO GD HELPFUL all the damn time. I was in the states for 8 days, and I think I […]

Book 11: The Butterfly Effect, October 27

October 27, 2017

11. The Butterfly Effect, Jon Ronson (October 27) It’s Jon Ronson, so of course I had to read it. I’m not sure if this technically counts as a book. I am qualifying it as such because: It’s by Jon Ronson and he writes books It was available on Audible as an Audiobook It was long enough […]
