This was an interesting week for me... not gonna lie.
Coming off my 10 day vacay & social media detox it was kinda like a slap in the ass to get back to the gym, strut my tired ass behind the chair in the salon & get back to all the blog work that was piling up waiting for me.
So that's I guess the ugly side of taking ten days off... but you know what... it was sooooo worth it I would do it over again a million times.
You know what helped make my first day back to work a little more exciting... the fact that it was my BIRTHDAY! At first when I came to the daunting reality that this would be the first time that I can remember that my birthday didn't fall in my summer hiatus.... but instead on my first day back... I was less then thrilled. But as it turns out it was the perfect distraction to help me ease back into reality. And PS I still find it so weird how crazy the calendar can be lol.
"THE WHISPER NETWORK"
I was introduced to "The Whisper Network" from who else... Reese Witherspoon duh. What kind of self respecting gay would I be if I wasn't following along with Reese's book club. I read this book on vacay & COULD NOT put it down! It was sooooo good... I promise... if you don't like it I'll be shook.
"WINTER IN PARADISE"
I also read this one on vacay too since I had a little time to read more because I literally could not put down the last one! Lets be honest... would it even be summer if I didn't read an Elin Hilderbrand book? Especially fitting that this was a winter themed one perfect for Christmas in July. I'm not gonna lie... I was super skeptical about this one because it was the first one I read that wasn't based in Nantucket. At this point the location is pretty much the main character in her books. I liked it for sure... didnt LOVE it as much of some of her others... but what can I say... I guess it was a pretty slow week lol.
"BIG LITTLE LIES" FINALE
I guess I'm really feeling Reese Witherspoon this week. It seems like people weren't super hype about how this series ended but I honestly felt such closure & contentment it wasn't even funny. And who couldn't appreciate the superb acting of Nicole Kidman & Meryl Streep in those courtroom scenes?! The season may have been slow but this last hour I could've watched over & over again.
OK so as it's turning out this may be becoming the #fridayfive you all may disagree with the most. I'm pretty sure most of you hate Christmas in July, this season of "Big Little Lies" & literally every single person I've talked to has thought the new "Cats" movie trailer has been creepy & weird. I had the exact opposite reaction. I had actual, literal chills. Maybe it's because I've seen the show so many times that I'm desensitized to the idea of full grown adults dancing around in cat costumes & I think it's normal?! But I know that I for one will def be seeing this movie.
So there are my five things I'm most obsessed with this week... most of which y'all will probably ridicule me over lol.
