Monday Obsessions: Cake and Girl Crushes

Monday Obsessions: Cake and Girl Crushes

Happy Monday, good people!  I hope your weekend was full of excitement!  Mine wasn't...but that's exactly how I planned it.  There's nothing wrong with a little recharge time!  Today I'm only obsessed with two things, but BOY ARE THEY FABULOUS!  This is Valentine's week, so I wish you love and light this week!  Make it a great one!

Obsession #1:  LOTS OF CANDLES, PLENTY OF CAKE by Anna Quindlen.
I came across this book by happenstance and immediately ordered it from my local library (yes, I have a library card....stop judging me).  Since I cracked the spine on this book, I haven't been able to put it down.  Quindlen's writing is not only relatable, but it's as if she put a mirror in front of me and said: "here you are."  Her thoughts on growing older, marriage, friendship and more are so satisfying with a heaping dose of reality.  You will feel like you know her and yourself better with each turn of the page.  Do yourself a favor and pick this up NOW.

Obsession #2:  I have a girl crush.  Yes, I have a girl crush.  On Ashley Graham. She's fabulous in every way that a woman can be fabulous. Model and body activist Graham has been raising the bar in the fashion industry for years now.  She is gracing the March cover of Vogue with other models-of-the-moment and is also releasing her new season of swimwear with Swimsuits for All which is also dope AF.  Below are two photos of her that stopped me in my tracks last week!  I'm a super fan and a super believer in everything that she does and stands for. Obsession is an understatement!
