This week we’re chatting: Time management and life organization.

Is this blogging related may be your first question, and the answer is partially.  Its more of a life revamp plan I have going on which was set forth by some job related things, but put into overdrive when Hannah showed me her new planner and I HAD TO HAVE IT.  It was pricey, but for reorganizing your life, is there a price point? I don’t think so.  Anyway, as mentioned in a previous post, I am currently OBSESSING over anything Emily Ley makes, and if you follow me on Instagram you can see some of my recent purchases.

Review: Forever, Interrupted by Taylor Jenkins Reid

 Forever, Interrupted
By: Taylor Jenkins Reid

 

Have you ever heard of supernovas? They shine brighter than anything else in the sky and then fade out really quickly, a short burst of extraordinary energy. I like to think you and Ben were like that . . . in that short time, you had more passion than some people have in a lifetime. Elsie Porter is an average twentysomething and yet what happens to her is anything but ordinary. On a rainy New Year’s Day, she heads out to pick up a pizza for one. She isn’t expecting to see anyone else in the shop, much less the adorable and charming Ben Ross. Their chemistry is instant and electric. Ben cannot even wait twenty-four hours before asking to see her again. Within weeks, the two are head over heels in love. By May, they’ve eloped.

Only nine days later, Ben is out riding his bike when he is hit by a truck and killed on impact. Elsie hears the sirens outside her apartment, but by the time she gets downstairs, he has already been whisked off to the emergency room. At the hospital, she must face Susan, the mother-in-law she has never met and who doesn’t even know Elsie exists.
