I frequently ask for and love to hear recommendations for books to read. However, I’m not one for the sappy romantic novel, or the famous author who writes 15 of the same style murder mysteries. I like reading and learning and hearing the perspectives of others, inspiring others and encouraging others to do well.
That being said, I’ve read a few books lately that I figured I would pass on to all of you fabulous people – most are geared toward women so bear with me, guys!
Rich Bitch by Nicole Lapin
EVERY GIRL SHOULD READ THIS BOOK IMMEDIATELY. Especially if you’re in your 20’s/30’s and have no idea about anything regarding finance or money. Even if you do, Lapin has an edgy, bitchy way of breaking it down into terms that any real betch can understand. It’s liquid gold. Or solid. Whichever you prefer.
How to Be Parisian Wherever You Are * Love, Style, and Bad Habits by Anne Berest, Audrey Diwan, Caroline de Maigret, and Sophie Mas
I’m currently reading this book for the 4th time fully through (that’s why the cover is so dirty). I constantly reference the quotes and stories and quick (sometimes 1, 2, 3 page) “chapters” for hysterical advice. Makes me feel chic whenever I’m feeling basic. Parisians do it well and you can do it just as well as soon as you start taking yourself less seriously.
Literally mind-blowing. For any of you psychotic OCD “cleaners” out there or for people like myself who are traditionally on the “hot mess express,” this book is for you. I read it in less than 24 hours. It’s quick and gives legit tips to declutter your life and starting with the space you live in. Sounds silly but the perspective is much clearer than most people can relate to.
Front Roe: How to Be the Leading Lady in Your Own Life by Louise Roe
Pretty casual style book giving tips and tricks on how to “get it” and be awesome. Lots of confidence boosters and helpful things to do to get your shit together, fashionably and personally.
Cupcakes & Cashmere At Home by Emily Schuman
One of my favorite bloggers recently debuted her 2nd book giving lifestyle tips, tricks and advice for your home. My favorite part is that she gives ideas for every room or space in the home for both homeowners and renters (me). Great photos and ideas throughout – can be read in an afternoon, but awesome to reference.
