8 Books You Must Read This Fall

As I look at my variety of books I have aligned in a row, with the colorful bindings staring at me, I wish that everyone could experience the same good readings that I did. With the colder season approaching, you most likely will have plans with an oversized hoodie and a couch. You might as well add a compelling story to your lazy plans as well, and I want to share with you my personal favorites.

"The Subtle Art Of Not Giving A F*ck"

This book by Mark Manson was very eye-opening to me, and actually eased a lot of my anxiety after reading it. Throughout this book, he explains what you should actually be caring about in your life, and the things that truly matter. You will feel quite empowered after finishing this book, and I highly recommend this to anyone and everyone who is looking to not give a f*ck.

Nice Is Just A Place In France

Ah yes, a wonderfully written book by The Betches. They continue to amaze me every day on their Instagram account from guy to work-related advice. This book is a how-to on how to win at basically everything. Here is a tiny excerpt from the book to get a better idea of what you're diving into:

"The pregame is the thing of our generation. It's because we don't often drink for pure enjoyment. Instead, we drink to guarantee that we'll be drunk enough for whatever activity follows the pregame. If we didn't, we would need to rely on men to buy all our drinks, and I mean, we already need them to get a house and a baby, why do we need them to get us drunk, too? That's why all independent women pregame."

I also plan on reading their most recent book, "When's Happy Hour?" which is a useful guide on how to act in the workplace.

"Five Ways To Fall"

Now this one by K.A. Tucker is a little different than what I'm used to reading because I'm all about humor than a love story, but this one was good. It's your typical woman catching her husband cheating with another girl, and she eventually finds love in the end. Even though this sounds very cliché, it was a compelling read, and I also liked the book cover because the chick has purple hair.

"The Girl With A Lower Back Tattoo"

Amy Schumer takes her stand-up comedy and puts in on paper from her childhood stories, to early adulthood she tells it all without any censorship. If you are looking for a positive, and HILARIOUS read I highly suggest reading this with a glass (or bottle) of wine

"Chelsea Chelsea Bang Bang"

This book is very similar to Amy Schumer's since they are both amazing stand-up comedians. Chelsea Handler talks about everything you could possibly think of from her personal observations to what she went through personally, but she explains it all in a way to where there is a consistent smile on your face.

"My Fight, Your Fight"

This book is another autobiography type novel, but instead of humor, Ronda Rousey takes you into her life all the way back to her birth to her present self, speaking about how she got involved with MMA, and the obstacles she took. This is another book that gave me a boost of motivation when I needed it.

"She Felt Like Feeling Nothing"

There is a big difference compared with this one and the previous books I mentioned. This book is by r.h. Sin, which is one of my favorite poets. This man creates the shortest poems with the biggest meanings behind them. If you are currently going through some sh*t in your love life and need some empowerment, READ THIS.

"Whiskey Words And A Shovel"

This is just like the previous poetry book by r.h. Sin I mentioned, and he actually wrote this before "She Felt Like Feeling Nothing," but still a good read. Actually, just go ahead and Amazon express ship all of his poetry books, and thank me later.

13 Father's Day Shirts Under $30 To Gift The Dad Wearing The Same Two Every Day In Quarantine

You've been begging him to change it up, and now he won't have a choice.

Let's be honest: most of our dads are wearing the same shirts today that they probably wore while changing our diapers and holding our hands as we learned to walk. Sure, we love them for it. But whether you're quarantined with him wearing the same two shirts on rotation every week, or every time you FaceTime him, you know what he'll be wearing before he answers the phone, he needs to add some new items to his wardrobe rotation.

And you know dads — they'll feel guilted into using practically anything you were to give them. But these shirts are sure-fire ways to get him to switch up his wardrobe, and he'll be more than excited to wear each and every one of them. Plus, most of them are under twenty dollars, so no harm in dropping more than a couple in to your cart and letting Dad have his pick of his favorites.

I Sat Down (Virtually) With Hollis Tuttle To Talk About Coronavirus's Impact On The Wellness Industry

Just because coronavirus has greatly impacted the wellness industry doesn't mean wellness stops.

If you're anything like me, your weekly fitness classes are a huge part of your routine. They keep me fit, healthy, and sane. Honestly, these classes help my mental health stay in tip-top shape just as much as they help my physical health.

Due to the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic, gyms and fitness studios are facing temporary closure. Yes, this means my personal routine is thrown a curveball, but this also means the wellness industry is one of many that is looking at unemployment and hardship. Do I miss my Monday spin class? Of course. But do the wellness professionals whose worlds were flipped upside down have a lot more to overcome than a slight change of routine? Absolutely. Thankfully, if anyone can prove the ultimate flexibility, it's the wellness industry.

My Boyfriend Has Changed Since Quarantine Began, And I Don't Know What To Do

"All he says is 'I love you,' which is great and all but OMG I can't get anything else out of him."

Each week Swoonie B will give her advice on anonymous topics submitted by readers. Want to Ask Swoonie B something related to dating and relationships? Fill out this form here — it's anonymous.

Dear Swoonie B,

My boyfriend and I have been dating for almost a year, which has been the best year of my life (as far as i know). Well we go to different schools and are both very involved in sports and school activities which makes it hard to see each other. During this quarantine it is especially hard. Since we haven't seen each other in over a week things are kind of tense. He won't really talk to me much and I always check in on him to make sure he is doing well and to just see how he is, ya know being a girlfriend. Well apparently that is driving him crazy and I don't understand how. I'm not being controling or clingy, i'm just checking in on him. While this is happening, I also have noticed how he just doesn't really care anymore. I'll leave him paragraphs of sweet love letters to wake up to and I encourage him throughout his day but I just don't get it in return. I love him with all of me and I obviously care about him a lot. Also, I've compared how he talked to me before all of this has happened. He was so sweet and caring, texting me a lot and telling me he loves me and just making sure everything is OK but he doesn't do that anymore. All he says is "I love you," which is great and all but OMG I can't get anything else out of him. He is a little stressed at home with trying to find another job to pay for his car, constantly having to do things for his mom, being responsible for his siblings, and managing school. I know thats a lot but im doing a lot too right now and going through a lot of the same stuff he is but It seems to me he just does not care and i don't know what to do. Please help me or give me some advice on what to say, what not to say, what to do, what not to do. Anything at this point will help. Thank you!

If I had a dollar for every time I heard "these are unprecedented times," I'd be rich. But that's because it's true!

Tower 28

On paper, Amy Liu appears to be one of the most intimidating women in the beauty business. Not only did she launch her beauty marketing career at legendary Smashbox Cosmetics, she went on to lead luxury, high-end brands like Kate Somerville and Josie Maran — just to name a few.

But sitting down to meet Liu for the first time in an underground New York bar over a year ago felt like meeting a friend I'd known since childhood. As she walked into the bar in a chic red dress, it was impossible not to feel her immediate warm presence. When she talks about her history as an entrepreneur (and truly, at heart, she always was one), you don't get the sense that she's selling you anything, though with her impeccable taste, I'd use anything that had her glowing review attached to it.

Sixth grade was the year that you were allowed to participate in a school sport. This was what my friends and I had all been waiting for since we started middle school. I had already made the cheer team with my friends, but I had to wait to start that in the winter since we cheered for basketball. I really wanted to have some sort of activity in the fall, but I did not know what to do. Somehow, I decided to run cross country. Not really sure how I decided on a sport where it was quite literally just running. A few of my friends were doing it as well, so I knew it was going to be fun.

Working Out Every Day During Quarantine Helps Me Feel A Sense Of Control

Physical activity helps my mental health in a world that feels uncertain.

Before the pandemic, I exercised a handful of times a week at best. In quarantine, I've been exercising every single day. I don't want this article to be another spiel about how exercise "changed my life," and all the other cliches that health gurus use to convince others to work out more. Rather, I want to reveal that exercise is a tool that works for me because it boosts my mental health when I feel like the world is spiraling out of control.

To say that 2020 has been a bit of a roller coaster is an extreme understatement. Who knew that this decade was going to start off like THIS!? Not me, not you, and not that sweet old lady who lives down the street. One thing is certain though — while the world may be a mess right now, you can still fuel your body with food that keeps you happy and healthy. Thankfully, as we are all spending more time inside, you can get healthy snacks delivered straight to your front door! Amazon has never been more convenient (and tasty).
