Are you in the mood for an inspirational story? I know I always am. Especially when it comes to girls making their dreams come true.
Lately, I’ve really been getting into reading. I always have been into reading, but as high school came to a close, I could never find the time for it. I was always busy worrying about something else.
But now, school this semester has ended and I decided that it’s time to start going back into my hobbies, such as writing, painting, and reading. I recently picked up a few books based on some fashion icons and I wanted to review one for you in case you had an interest in checking these out.
The book “#GIRLBOSS” is one of the most inspiring books I’ve ever read. I love the story of Sophia Amoruso and gritty rise she had to success. She has a “go get em” attitide and a powerful spunk about her. Her writing is honest, filled with plain raw facts, a few curse words, and overall a sense of overwhelming inspiration. I relate to Amoruso because I share a common dream as she had when starting her online retail shop Nasty Gal.
The book isn’t in chronicle order of the way things happened for Amoruso. Rather, it is a guideline for new #GIRLBOSSes to follow, with little hints of her own life and personal experiences. She talks about dreams, how to achieve them, and the reality that this life is at our fingertips. This book is truly an amazing read, especially if you ever come around to doubting yourself. In includes adorable fashion sketches with quotes to live by, and it also features some stories of other #GIRLBOESSes who followed their dream. I kind of feel like this book was written for me. I relate so much to the story, to the writing, to the attitude. The most exciting thing about that is I hope it means I’m a #GIRLBOSS too.
I think I will read this book many times in my future to remind myself that my dreams are possible, and the road will be rocky. The best place to start is from the bottom, right??? I hope so.
One day (when I had been dreaming of buying the book but hadn’t made the trip to Books A Million! yet) I went to Netflix and searched it. I have no idea if they just released it and I got super lucky that day, or if it had been there for months. Either way, I was sooooo excited when I found it, and started watching the series before ever getting the book.
Season 1 is available right now, and I have no idea if there will be more season but idea really really really hope so. Whereas the book is inspiring, the show is hilarious. I love the characters, the dialogue, and most absolutely—the style. The looks are to die for cute, and the acting is, well, Netflix y’all already know.
I love the show. The jokes are vulgar, not made for gentle ears, and there are so many twists and turns. I would kill to have a best friendship like Sophia and Annie. So cute. So strong.
If you have the opportunity to check out the show, press play and prepare to laugh. Reading the book and watching the show was a fun experience. I’m definitely glad I picked this book up. If you have big dreams, especially in the fashion business, I consider this a MUST READ.
Thank you so much for reading. Let me know if you want me to write more book reviews as I see a few coming this summer. Have a good one.
