My 8 Highlighted Quotes From 'You Are A Badass' By Jen Sincero

Everyone deserves to read a good motivational book

Bloguettes Book Club

I'm currently half way through reading "You Are a Badass" by Jen Sincero and I have been enjoying it so far! The theme of the book is helping to not doubt yourself and live your best life possible. Each chapter is dedicated to giving suggestions on improving your mindset in certain areas of your life. It also helps with pessimistic thoughts we all have at times. It's a great book to read when in college or even when going through a mid-life crisis!

Highlighting my favorite lines helps me truly grasp the most important things I want to remember from this book.

Nobody who ever accomplished anything big or new or worth raising a celebratory fist in the air did it from their comfort zone. 

(page 65)

Really listen to how you speak and pay attention to what you do, and make a conscious effort to increase your joy in whatever capacity you can. 

(page 57)

The Universe will match whatever vibration you put out. And you can't fool the Universe. 

(page 32)

The money you want already exists; the person you want to meet is already alive; the experience you want to have is available, now; the idea for that brilliant song you want to write is here, now, waiting for you to download the information. 

(page 38)

...there's nothing cooler than watching your entire reality shift into one that is a perfect expression of you. 

(page 47)

Receive compliments gracefully instead of countering with a disclaimer such as, "Oh, this ratty old thing?" Try this instead, "Thank you." Period. 

(page 60)

What other people think about you has nothing to do with you and everything to do with them. 

(page 67)

Once we figure out what our (unique gifts) are, and decide to live our lives putting them to good use, that's when, and only when, the real party begins. 

(page 73)

Jen Sincero's book includes really thought-out quotes that give you the motivation to make your life one you are proud to live. I'm looking forward to finishing the book and you should pick it up and start reading it too, whether you are satisfied with your life or searching to change certain aspects of it. It's a book for everyone.

An Atlanta Weekend

A New Yorker's quick weekend in Atlanta.


On a weekend visit to Atlanta, I had to adjust to people being personable and congenial to me. Although I had lived in the South before, I had to get reacquainted with southern hospitality due to visiting from Brooklyn. Atlanta Uber drivers are very down to earth, offer snacks, and provide great genuine conversations. The opposite is the lay of the land from Brooklyn Uber drivers. The southern hospitality is provided not only from the Uber drivers, but restaurant servers, cashiers, or random people giving suggestions. Brooklyn is a dope and unique place to live, but short on the warmth more often than not.

... in case you needed another excuse to eat empanadas and churros.

20 Traditional Hispanic Recipes To Feast On In Honor Of Hispanic Heritage Month

Like many of my wanderlust-ridden friends and family, I'll travel anywhere for the promise of good food. I once went to Thailand in pursuit of traditional massaman curry and Spain for authentic patatas bravas — neither of which let me down.

What usually ends up being the biggest letdown is coming home to miss the traditional, local cuisine. It may not have quite the same ambiance, but trying to cook authentic dishes at home can increase appreciation for the craft and culture behind them.

10 Reasons Coffee Is The Best In Honor Of National Coffee Day

National Coffee Day is upon us, and what better way to celebrate than to remember why it's so amazing?

10 Reasons Coffee Is The Best In Honor Of National Coffee Day

National Coffee Day falls on September 29, a fact that I don't think I'll ever forget, even though I didn't even know it was a "holiday" until just recently. Maybe that's because my love for coffee is still a recent development, or maybe I just don't keep up enough with the times, but either way, I can't think of any better time to recount why we all probably love it so much.
