Currently Reading: Next Level Basic by Stassi Schroder

Fans of the iconic Bravo TV show "Vanderpump Rules" will know exactly who Stassi Schroder is. With her snippy one-liners, "I don't know what I did to you, but I'll take a Pinot Grigio," and her flare for the dramatics, Stassi has truly made a name for herself. With the rest of the world, you either love her or hate her, or you hated her at one point and now love her. I think Stassi has really come in her own and I love that she's turned the word "basic" into a positive word. In the beginning chapters of Stassi's book she discusses how it's okay to love things that are categorized as "basic," but the truth is basic just means popular. It wouldn't be deemed as basic if it wasn't something that millions of people love.

What's the book about?
This is part biography part self-help book. Stassi does talk about her life, from the beginning to Vanderpump Rules and after, but it's also about how her experiences shaped her to be who she is today. She also knows that young girls are going to go through some of the same things she did and instead of trying to change who they are, she wants those young girls to embrace who they are. She takes a term that has been deemed as an insult in today's society and turned it into something positive.

Who would enjoy this book?
If you're a fan of Stassi you will for sure enjoy this book. You can hear her voice with each line you read. Or if you're looking for a fun light-hearted read that can identify as a self-help book in a way.

How long is the book?
It's not that long. I got through it in just a couple days. The spacing of the text is quite large and there are a lot of doodles and pictures too. You could easily get through 2-3 chapters a night.

Quotes That Guided Me Through Life

Everyone has their favorite quotes. It's a little motivational perk that can push you to a different mindset. I love posting quotes on my Instagram stories and I get a lot of responses from them too. People sometimes just need a little dose of inspiration and it's nice to know that someone else is going through something too. I think sharing an inspirational quote is very personal and shows people that you're vulnerable.

That being said, I've heard thousands of quotes throughout my life and there are a handful that really stuck with me throughout the years. When I hear these I get this instant fire in my belly or shivers down my spine reminding me.. oh yeah this one resonates with me the most. Maybe they'll resonate with you too. Here are some quotes and tidbits that have truly guided me through life.

What I Spend In A Week

I rarely jump on these posting trends, but when a good one is floating around I want to test it out and see how it goes. The only other time I did this was when I did the Ugly Photoshoot Challenge with my friend Danya a couple years ago. There's this new trend going around called "What I Spend in a Week" and I am so here for this trend. Not only does this show you a crazy insight to how everyones spending habits are different, it in a way keeps you accountable for your own spending. I decided to do this week because I knew I had to go to the grocery store so I thought that be a good thing to factor in, but besides that I didn't change anything else about my typical routine. This is a pretty honest what I spend in a week.

5 Apps You Need To Download
I remember when "apps" were really starting to pop out everywhere. Everyone and everything had an app and let me just say I'm so glad that's over. It was exhausting trying to keep up with which app to use for what. I feel like the main core apps that are out there everyone has, which is great! At least it's not all confusing like it used to be. Just incase you don't have these, I highly suggest you download these 5 apps immediately.

Closet Clean-Out!
Do you ever feel like you just need to refresh things around the house? That is how I was feeling one day when I took everything out of the walk-in closet. The way the closet was organized simply wasn't functional. I needed to change that.

Like I said, the first thing I did was just take everything...and yes, I a mean everything.. out of the closet. I vacuumed the carpet, wiped down the cabinets and re-washed everything. Does this sound obsessive? It is. That's okay. In a post, soon-to-come, you'll see that one of my goals for 2020 is to get rid of half my stuff including clothes. I went cut-throat with my clothes and really decided if this item was something I was ever going to wear again. I made Omar do the same thing and one way I got him to get rid of a lot of stuff was that any money we made from selling our clothes we would use as "Christmas shopping money." Which you can totally shop my Poshmark and Mercari (offering free shipping on Mercari).

Halloween Pop-Up Museum

This was a very pleasant not-so-planned blog post. My friend, Ana, found out that there was this Halloween pop-up museum at Tyson's Galleria for the past couple months so we decided to get tickets before it closed. This was super exciting for us because pop-up museums don't really happen around here often. They're normally in D.C. with long lines or all the way in Maryland. To have one here in the mall just a few minutes from my apartment was rare and we had to take advantage of it.

The American Scream Museum was awesome. It was reasonably price and highlighted a ton of the classic horror films, t.v. shows and other creepy Halloween accents. It also wasn't crowded at all. I don't know if that was because it was the last day or the time of day we got our tickets for, but we got to take our time with each section and get some really good photos. Anyways, the photos speak for themselves and this isn't really a description post so let's get to the good stuff!
