Oh wow friends. This has been (to use my friend Mackenzie’s wording) a real rose and a thorn of a week. I’ve been sick AND my phone is broken. Both are long stories and I won’t bore you with whining and my apparent ineptitude at both life and technology. Instead I will share some REALLY GOOD NEWS. Our podcast is finally live in iTunes! I am so excited about this! We are still figuring out how to get it on Spotify and Stitcher all the other stuff (again, technically inept) but it will be there soon.
What’s the podcast about? Books, duh! And life and self care and advice and all that… every other week we will discuss a new (bad but good) YA novel and on the weeks in between we will answer reader questions and give advice! What inspired the podcast is that Becca (one of my best friends + old BaubleBar coworker) and I are both in our thirties and both love love love young adult books so much – as do so many of our friends. So we’re taking our guilty pleasure public (I mean, I’ve been writing about my love of bad books here for a while so it isn’t anything new but you know what I mean). It isn’t jussst about bad books though. We’ll also talk about the good books we’re reading, the smart books we’re reading, and in every episode answer a few questions and also talk about other stuff (favorite instagram accounts, beauty products, all the things).
Our first episode is really just an introduction to us and how/what we like to read. About us, how we met, the best books we read this year, our thoughts on kindle vs. paper books, and so on and so forth. We also announce our first book (which we’ll talk about in next week’s episode). New episodes every Wednesday, I hope you enjoy! (We’ve started an instagram account for the podcast as well as a Facebook group, and would love for you to follow/join/subscribe/etc!)
I do need to just tell you how happy these sunglasses make me. I had been looking for a red pair for entirely too long. I wanted a pair that was opaque, big enough to fit my face (I have a big face and 90% of sunglasses look terrible on me!) , and not too expensive. At $25, these are just perfect. And while I was there I also bought this cozy knit sweater. I layered it over a black tank here but I think it will be fun to experiment layering over dresses (and knotting it) in the summer). pairing it with cutoffs, or even just wearing it over a swimsuit this summer!
