What I'm Reading: August 2017

New month, new books! I've diverged from my list of 17 books I wanted to read in 2017, but I'm still planning on reading the majority of the books from that list by the end of the year. 

Last Month's Books: 

Into the Wild - John Krakauer
Haven't gotten super far into the book yet, but it is really good. I adore the movie version of the story, and the book is just as good (if not better). 

Mindset The New Psychology of Success - Carol Dweck
This book is so interesting and is a really easy read. It talks about fixed vs growth mindset and how we can use a growth mindset to learn more and set ourselves up for success. I just found it laying around the kitchen, but it has quickly become my beach read.

This Month's Books:

I'm still finishing the books from July, but I also really want to read the Life-Changing Magic of Tidying Up because my mom has a hard copy of the book and I'm only home for a couple more weeks. 

Let me know in the comments what you're reading this month and if you have any book recommendations for me!

What I'm Loving: July 2017

Remember when people used to do favorites videos on youtube, sharing what they enjoyed most during the past month? This is going to be the blog version of that! After you read through this, leave a comment below letting me know what you think and I might make this a monthly (or seasonal) column.

Did you know I have a second blog? I haven't been posting on Sisi Travels for a while (I think the last post was in March), but that's all changing now! If you're a newer reader, let me share a little bit about my travel blog with you.

Summer Skincare Routine

I'm very low maintenance when it comes to my skincare, especially in the summer. It's been a while since I did a skincare post, so I thought that I'd share my daily skincare routine as well as special products I use!

Cheap, Chic, Student Planner for the New School Year

I love the start of a new school year. I love shopping for new stationary, starting new classes, and breaking in a new planner. Last year I bought a planner from Target, and while it was pretty, it didn't work all that well for me. This year, I ordered one from an Etsy store and it is beautiful!
