Book Review: The Life Changing Magic of Tidying Up

I feel I'm a little late to the game for this book. And I also felt that this book would be great for me to read since I am not a cleaning person. (I actually pay someone to clean my house.) What I read was a great experience. Marie Kondo walks you through her method... Continue Reading →

Book Review: The Raven Boys

The Raven Boys is another hyped book, but unlike the last one I read, this one was SO GOOD. Blue is the misfit of her bizarre family. She is the only one who does not have psychic abilities, but she does make others abilities stronger when she is near. This is especially helpful if anyone... Continue Reading →

Book Review: A Walk in the Woods

Book Review: You Need A Budget

I studied business in school and even went through Financial Peace University, but let me tell you one thing - I am terrible with money. In part, I think it's due to the fact that I never owned my own car, didn't have a job til I was in college, and never actually lived completely... Continue Reading →
