Books & Bath

...because I'm back!

THE Sex Bomb!!

THE Sex Bomb!!

After a sizable hiatus I've decided to return to blogging. I've been pretty focused on Sawyer lately (which, if you don't already know, is my online magazine), but I missed blogging a lot and decided to get back into it just for fun and to chronicle my outfits. My personal style has remained the same at its core, but I've been experimenting with a lot of different looks lately that I can't wait to write about. I'm going to do OOTDs in one section and everything else in this blog section, so if you want to keep up, make sure you're checking both when you visit the site!

Anyways, onto the post!

I decided to end the week off right with a bath...the last time I was in LUSH I picked up my first ever bath bomb and had been dying to try it out. I got the Sex Bomb, which I figured was a pretty safe place to start because its a store staple. It had jasmine and ylang ylang, which were really subtle once the bomb dissolved. It turned the whole bath bright pink in a matter of minutes and, needless to say, I was definitely in love. 

Since my main issue with baths in general is how quickly boredom sets in, I put one of my new books to use. I recently ordered a few offline: Burton on Burton, It by Alexa Chung, Alexander Hamilton by Ron Chernow (a decision fueled by my love for the musical Hamilton), and a New York coloring book by CJ Hughes.

So far, I'm a few pages deep in It and Burton on Burton. It is definitely more of a fashion-girl book (seeing that its written by THE fashion girl herself), and has a lot of cool pictures and drawings.

Burton on Burton is also pretty great so far- its a collection of Tim's interviews edited together in chronological order, complete with some photos from the sets of his movies and lots of sketches. I'm a huge fan of his work, and the stories are really interesting. 

On a different note, I've been having kind of a Green Day moment ever since I watched Broadway Idiot on Netflix. Broadway Idiot is a documentary about the process of turning Green Day's 2004 hit rock opera album into a hit Broadway show, along with Billie Joe Armstrong's involvement in the show. Ever since then, I've been making my way through their discography on Spotify. They're definitely a classic band, but I've never paid as much attention to their lyrics, which definitely tell stories, especially on the American Idiot and 21st Century Breakdown albums. I put my two favorites from the American Idiot album below for you to listen to!!

Talk to you again soon!!
