Books Worth Reading N°1.

This post is a bit different than what I usually go for.  I love hearing everyones favorite books, so why not show you some of mine!  I read these within the past month and i can honestly say they are so good and i recommend each one. I'm currently reading The Power Of Now but i thought i'd include it anyways. 

Where'd You Go, Bernadette has been popping up everywhere lately.  Its a fun, quick read but at the same time oh so interesting.  The book is told from multiple points of view, which makes it fun to read.  The book revolves around Bernadette, who mysteriously goes missing on her own behalf. Her daughter has to put the pieces together and figure out what made her run away in the first place. This book is absolutely hilarious, which i wasn't expecting but it makes the book 10x better.
The Giver is my absolute favorite among the three. After seeing the trailer for the movie, i wanted to read the book before i watched it. This book is so good i didn't want to put it down. The book takes place in the future where society is separated into different communities. At first Jonas' society seems like the perfect place to live, but throughout the book he learns just how terrible it really is. There are 3 other books in the series, so ill definitely be reading those sometime soon!
The Power Of Now has been on my reading list for a while.  I love spiritual / motivational books so I knew i was going to love this one. I'm only a few pages in but i can tell it's going to be a good read.  I will make an updated post when i finish reading it. 
Have you read any of these books?? What are your thoughts? Also, leave me some book recommendations!

I got really into YouTube last summer but stopped a few months in.  I've been
wanting to get back into it, so I decided to just go for it!  My new video is my summer
beauty essentials which you will find above.  Feel free to check out my channel and 
leave me some video requests!

I was browsing Pinterest a few days ago and I came across this DIY lemon salt scrub 
that looked so lovely. To my surprise it was extremely easy to make, which is always nice, right?  

I love using salt/sugar scrubs especially in the summer time as an exfoliator and since 
this recipe calls for coconut oil, it makes a great moisturizer as well. 

  What you'll need: 
1/4 Cup of coconut oil
1 Cup of sea salt
1 tsp. lemon juice
A small airtight container ( a small mason jar works perfectly) 

** To be honest I sort of guestimated on the measurements. I just added 
them together until i got a damp / sandy like mixture **
First, I poured the salt into a bowl then added in the oil a little at a time.  
I started to mix it together with a spoon, but I ended up just mixing it with
 my hands! It will get a bit messy, but it's so much easier and you also get to exfoliate
 your hands! Bonus! After thats all mixed in, you can squeeze the lemon juice 
into the mixture. 
** Sidenote- If you use this while in the shower, be careful because the shower
 floor will be slippery!! ** 
If any of you try out this recipe, let me know how it works out!

Introducing My Etsy Shop //

So I guess making dreamcatchers is my new thing..?  I recently added a couple new ones
 to my Etsy shop which you can find here.  They're sort of a modern/bohemian take on your 
average dremcatcher. I have a ton hanging in my room and I admit, they're extremely cute.
