November Obsessions

Hello All!

November is definitely a whirlwind month filled with so many different fun activities and lots of great new movies and TV shows dropping just in time for the holidays and colder weather! There are so many things to do in DC as winter approaches, so I’ve compiled some of the things I’m looking forward to attending this month.

I’ve gathered together articles that I’ve found both useful (making friends as an adult, combining relationships and software, and proper thank you note etiquette) and fun (Met Costume Exhibition 2020 announcement and the top hydrating sheet masks) for your enjoy reading. I’m also very impressed with the amount of interesting and diverse movies and TV shows coming out this month. It’s perfect for cuddling up with a blanket and cup of hot cocoa as temperatures drop and you don’t want to leave your home!

Interesting Reads:

Books:

This past month I indulged in a wide variety of books spanning from the “know thyself” variety to murder mysteries to re-imagined Greek epics. I thoroughly enjoyed them all and can’t recommend them enough!

  • Circe – the powerful feminist retelling of the goddess-witch from the Odyssey.
  • Nantucket Counterfeit – a fun murder mystery set on my favorite island!
  • The Rules of Magic – the prequel to Practical Magic, it tells the story of a family of witches cursed to never fall in love.
  • The 5 Love Languages: Singles Edition – this book asks you to take a closer look at your relationships and work towards more healthily engaging with others. I especially found it useful when approaching family dynamics, strengthening friendships, and reaching out to difficult coworkers.
  • Pocket Astrology series: Scorpio – I love a good zodiac read, and this one was delightfully accurate. I also got a copy for my Libra friend for her birthday and she loves it! This is a wonderful gift for your horoscope-obsessed loved ones.
