One thing I have become very passionate about is self-growth and investing in myself. Today I wanted to share two awesome books that I would recommend if you want to be intentional with your creativity, growth or leadership.

The first book is, Big Magic: Creative Living Beyond Fear by Elizabeth Gilbert. I even followed up that book with her podcast, where she trades off working with people to meet their creative goals and guests who speak as experts on the subject.
As someone who has always been drawn to create, this book really spoke to me. The emphasis on creating for yourself and the joy it brings you was a lesson I was due to hear.
The other book I just finished up was, John C. Maxwell’s 15 Invaluable Laws of Growth. The idea that we have the capacity to continue to grow, learn and serve our purpose here on earth extends into all aspects of our life. I highly recommend it.
I also recently discovered the joy that is Audible (You can totally try it free for 30 days). Basically it is books on tape for the modern day! Loading the dishwasher, walks, waiting for the kids at soccer practice, etc. have now become these amazing pockets of investment in ME!
I also have a few beauty products I tried and loved and have been telling everyone I know about them!! This new line from Essie is rocking my world. Gel manicures were requiring too much of my time and ruining my nails. I tried the Jamberry stuff, but it wasn’t exactly my jam (no pun intended) and every other product I have tried was chipping the next day….more or less.
My bestest friend and hairdresser swore by this stuff so I picked it up. Application is simple– two coats of color, top coat– and I went chip-free for a week!! Found it on Amazon and Target, but haven’t seen it anywhere else yet.
I also had this build up problem with my hair. I tried some expensive shampoo brands and no luck. I finally found a shampoo/conditioner to solve the build-up problem. It is the DoTerra Shampoo and conditioner, which you can find here and if you want at wholesale, make sure you email/message me.
So there it is…a few great books, an app, nail polish and amazing shampoo and conditioner. Have you read any great books lately? I’m looking for a new one to start. Any favorite beauty products you want to share?
