About a month ago, I signed up with a Fall swap from Lindsay from Bourbon, Lipstick, and Stilettos I received the cutest package from my partner last week!
My partner was Julia from Grace Makes New.
And here’s what she sent me:
I got some great stuff! Starla loves her new toy. I’ve already put the foxy socks to good use. I also can’t believe I never tried the mint/vanilla EOS before. I always get the mint but never the mixed one. It is sooooo good! I’m obsessed. Julia did a pretty good job shopping for me I’d have to say.
Thank you Julia!

Big Little Lies by liane Moriarty
Between the Lines on Big Little Lies
I think it’s particular to women of all ages. I remember being a teenager and saying my ass was fat, because self-shaming was so prevalent in my high school. Magazines, celebrities, tv, movies, and more show women the ideal image for their body and don’t take into account the many shapes and sizes that women can be healthy and beautiful. I can’t speak for how strong this gets the older you get, but I know from experience that this obsession with looks typically starts at a young age and continues on.
This is a great question that I didn’t even think about when I was reading the book. I can now see how the author took something small and broadened it into something much larger. The author showed many aspects of violence, overt and not, and weaved it into a wonderful story that tackles very important issues.
