Why Girls Are Weird

Aflame by Penelope Douglas

From Goodreads: The tables have turned. Now I have the power—and it’s his turn to beg…

Everyone wants to be me.

Maybe it’s the sway of my skirt or the way I flip my hair, but I don’t care. Even though their attention is the last thing I crave, I just can’t stop. I dominate the track, the speed rattles my bones, and the wind and the crowd screams my name.

I’m her. The girl driver. The queen of the race. And I’m surviving—something he thought I’d never do.

They all still talk about him. Did you see Jared Trent on T.V? What did you think of his last race, Tate? When is he coming back to town, Tate?

But I refuse to care too much. Because when Jared does come home, I won’t be here.

Tatum Brandt is gone. I’m someone new.

What I Thought: I couldn't believe when I saw that another book from the Fall Away series was coming out and I knew I had to read it. Tate and Jared had unfinished business and I had to  know if they would get back together.

In true fashion, this book is fun and sexy. All the characters from the previous books are back as well and I was especially excited to find out how Madoc and Fallon were doing (they're my favorite couple).

It was interesting to see how these characters grew up, what they'd become, and what problems they still had. And I also loved how the book tied everything up at the end (while still leaving certain possibilities open).

And I'm a little sad because I feel like I'm losing a group of friends.

What I'm saying is that if you haven't read this series, go get started. And if you have, you need to wrap it up with this final novella.

The Posh'mina Review & Giveaway

 romper: Old Navy // posh'mina: c/o The Posh'mina // sandals: Target (old)
earrings: c/o Diamonds Are Evil // necklace: Groopdealz

I worked for a clothing store a few years back and one of the most interesting things about working there was being taught their formula for a perfect outfit. You need at least 5 items. Those items could be anything. A dress, shoes, a cardigan, a necklace, and earrings. 5 items. Or a cute top, jeans, shoes, a bag, and a headband. 5 items.

There wasn't a whole lot I liked about working there but I did like learning that formula. It helps me when I'm dressing to make sure I'm fully accessorized. I used to be the girl that wore no jewelry, for instance, and my outfits were always a little blah. But the right accessories can help to make an outfit... and accessories are just more fun, right?

Which is why I'm crazy about The Posh'mina, an accessory that turns a scarf into a more wearable item. I love scarves, I haze a zillion of them hanging on the door to my bedroom. But I'm a little boring when it comes to how I wear my scarves. So finding new ways to turn a scarf into something more really makes me excited!

The Posh'mina comes in sleeveless (which is what I'm rocking!), sleeved, patterns, solids, and neck candy. And aside from wearing them in the way they're designed, you can also wear them as a simply scarf too. They're a hybrid Pashmina scarf so you know they're super soft and I have to say that my Hi'biscus Slotted number gets me tons of attention!

And I am so excited because today I am giving away $40 to one lucky reader! Which means pretty soon someone is going to be the owner of a beautiful Posh'mina!

Here's How To Enter

Good luck!

The Secret Keeper by Angela Carling COVER REVEAL

I am so excited to be working with Angela Carling to share the cover of her newest work, The Secret Keeper, as well as a little blurb about what the book is about!

I became a fan of Angela's two summers ago when I read her novel Becoming Brynn. I couldn't help but devour her other novels, Shackled and Unbreakable Love. Angela is so talented and I  have to say I've always felt really honored to get to work with authors that I look up to. As an avid reader it can't get much better than that!

So without further ado, the cover of Angela Carling's newest book as well as a brief intro!

When Seventeen year old Winter Merrill is compelled to make a bargain with the mysterious Secret Keeper, she knew there were rules.  The most important one, the next time you have a secret, you will not be able to tell it….even if you try. What she didn’t know is that her next secret if not told, would destroy her life and the life of Liam, the only boy she ever loved. Can Winter find a way out of the dark bargain that binds her tongue or will her deal with the Secret Keeper bring devastating consequences unimaginable even to her?

Sounds intriguing, right? I can't wait to get my hands on this book, I have a feeling it's going to be amazing!
