 Squeeeee – The Crossroads of Should and Must – Find and Follow Your Passion by Elle Luna is mine!!!

WOW WOW WOW

I am overwhelmed with how much goodness is jam-packed into this book.

This book has been on my radar since I first noticed the glowing reviews popping up on social media. As it sometimes happens in creative circles, I wondered if some of the 5-star, “YOU MUST BUY THIS BOOK NOW”, positive reviews must have all been from the author’s friends and/or influential bloggers who had been sent free copies.

I tentatively added it to my overflowing Amazon cart. Every few days I’d see another reference or Instagram photo about this book and I’d be back at Amazon wanting it to be mine. Usually I’m pretty impulsive when it comes to hitting buy on Amazon.

But I was worried this book sounded too good to be true. I thought for sure it would be filled with fluff, huge fonts and lots of useless graphics.

I was so wrong. It’s amazing. And it’s BEAUTIFUL. I love books for what’s inside first but I also appreciated books that are visually appealing and I even like books that feel good in your hand. Yes, I’m aware I sound like a weirdo.  The covers are thick and the pages are smooth and sumptuous. Hey! These things matter, people.

Between the cover, hand lettering, fonts and art work, this book is super lovely to look through.

Ok, ok. The content. Inspiring. Delightful. Creative. Did I say inspiring? 

Elle Luna is the real deal has filled her book with beautiful advice, inspiring stories and helpful nuggets of wisdom.  This book is part inspiration, part eye-candy, part self-help and part joy-filled ways to find your must.

Maybe you’re one of the lucky ones who can clearly see their life’s path neatly in front of them. However, if you question which road to take then this is the book for you. It’s basically a creative kick in the ass.

I know this book is already changing the way I view the creative choices I have available to me.

As you can see I have now gleefully joined the ranks of the reviewers shouting to GO BUY THIS BOOK NOW. {aaaaannnnd If you click here on my Amazon affiliate link, you can show me some love at the same time for which I will be very appreciative!}

I’m gonna tie one on!

sollybaby wrap

I’m pretty excited about my happy mail yesterday. My new baby wrap from SollyBaby arrived. It’s soooooo beautiful and sooooo soft. It’s hand-dyed and gorgeous. I’m a little skeered to try to tie it on – I have images of me bondaged up like a human pretzel, but according to the ohsohelpfullooking instructions, I am a mere 10 steps away from wearing a newborn like a pro! I have a feeling  photos or a video will be coming, at least for the comic relief I’m sure they will provide. I’m determined not to be lugging a 1,000 lb infant car seat around every day when we’re out and about so this little is going to get “worn”. Can’t wait!!

Disney world shopping

Ahhhh, the shopping….

 

Disney World Shopping

I have no problem admitting I am as bad or worse than my kids when it comes to wanting to hit everysinglegiftshop in the World. I don’t know what they pump into these places (besides the glorious air-conditioning), but Disney does merchandising right. I want to pour over every display, soaking in the colorful characters and then scoop it all up and take it with me. Or better yet, have it sent back to the hotel so it’s waiting for me when I get back! Now’s that service!
