If you follow me on Instagram, then you might remember me showcasing my new glasses I recently got from Zenni. I oftentimes find myself so busy these days that I don’t have time to make the several trips needed to get my glasses and prescription updated. If you can relate, then you’ll likely find Zenni as useful and convenient as I did! With most glasses under $50, you really can’t go wrong here, especially when they’re constructed of the same high-quality materials as other leading brands.
Since the frames were so budget-friendly, I decided to get two pairs – I figured having a backup pair would be wise since I already lost my original glasses. Plus, the ordering process was SO EASY. There are a ton of frame options, and I even used their Instagram user-generated selfies to help me pick out which styles I liked. OR you can use their online try-on images.
AND on the topic of glasses, I thought this would be the perfect time to put together a fall reading list. I try to read as much as possible although this gets pretty tricky, but once I get a good book going, it’s hard to put it down. And once daylight savings time ends, I know I’ll want to cozy up on the couch and get lost in a good book. Scroll on to find out what’s on my fall reading list.

I’m often asked for blogging advice, and always wondered whether or not anyone would sum it all up into one book. It’s finally happened. Brittany Hennessy, a former Influencer Partnerships Manager, dives into the essential of building a brand online and making money out of it. In my experience, a lot of the information you find online is either generic or not very relevant. I love how Brittany brings her refreshing perspective to the table. Even though I have been an influencer for years now, I still found the context useful and insightful. If you have any interest in the business of blogging or Instagram, this book is the perfect starting point.
For years, I have heard people rave about this book, and I’m finally picking it up. I love how it gets straight to the point and goes to explain several principles about connecting and engaging with others. Although many of the points may seem obvious, you’ll stop to wonder why you never approached situations in the way the book suggests. If you’re looking to refine your people – or leadership – skills, this book is one to read. It’s easy to follow, the techniques make perfect sense – and they’re totally applicable in everyday life.
Although I love the influencer space, I can’t deny that the comparison game is real. The book is basically a collection of essays by Heather Havrilesky which examines our generation’s obsession with self-improvement, materialism, consumerism, and success. It’s so well-written and thought provoking that you’ll find yourself evaluating how your emotions and behavior play into such things.
Earlier this years, I had the wonderful opportunity of working with rewardStyle to be featured in this book. I really love the concept of interviewing various influencers from around the world. Each and every one of our story is so unique, so personal, and so different that diving into our why makes you realize how big the world really is. And if you want to try your hand at the influencer game, it’s not too late. So, aside from my feature, everything about this book is so inspiring and makes the perfect coffee table topper this season.
Actress Busy Phillips, sums up her journey in this memoir. I love how she pretty much tells it all – the good, the bad, and the disappointments. Her sense of humor and lighthearted tone makes this book so entertaining – and a complete joy to read. Following along feels like having a conversation with a best friend.
I started this one recently, and I haven’t finished it yet. But I am really enjoying the advice on setting achievable goals. I picked this one up because I often find myself caught up in my day-to-day instead of narrowing down my scope of priorities. I’m looking forward to seeing what kind of actionable list steps I can put together for myself!
Another recommendation that I like to pick up and read periodically because each chapter is a a new person’s set of questions and advice – Tribe of Mentors.
I’m always up for a good book, so please share your favorites in the comments! I’d love to add them to my fall reading list!
