the sinner, Jessica Biel, into the water, Paula Hawkins, Milk Makeup, Asap Ferg, Diplo Starrah

Read on to find out what’s good in TV, books, and more.

How crazy is it that we’re already into the month of September?! Read on for a recap of my end-of-summer favorites.

I am totally hooked on The Sinner, which is on USA Network and stars Jessica Biel (plus a Jon Snow look-a-like playing her on-screen husband). It’s a psychological thriller that has you asking “Why did she do it?” instead of the usual “Who did it?” as in most crime mysteries. This limited series has only 8 episodes in total (bummer) and I can’t wait to see how it pans out. It’s features some pretty dark, twisted incidents, so be warned!

Also super excited for Broad City to start up again this week– Wednesday, September 13th. YAAAS!

Into the Water Paula Hawkins, My Not So Perfect Life Sophie Kinsella, All The Missing Girls Megan Miranda

The past year or so I’ve really gotten into psychological thrillers and mysteries, both in books and in TV/movies. Megan Miranda’s All the Missing Girls was a cool read because the story is told in reverse; the reader is perpetually going backwards in time, yet the plot is able to build this way. It can be a little tricky to keep the timing straight in your mind as you read, but the way everything comes together is captivating. While I didn’t feel a strong connection to any of the characters, it was a still a great read that kept me engaged and racing to the conclusion.

Similarly, Paula Hawkins’s Into The Water can be difficult to keep up with because of the narration, but was an amazing read. Hawkins, who also wrote The Girl On The Train, writes this story from the perspective of over 10 different characters, without giving any straightforward backstory. But once you’re able to figure out who’s who, you won’t be able to put this book down! Though there were some plot holes I wish Hawkins would have filled in, this book kept me guessing up until the very end.

When I need a break from murder and suspense, I turn to lighthearted chick lit, which I can count on for feel-good, often romantic stories. Sophie Kinsella is one of my favorite authors– her Shopaholic series is one of the all-time greatest, IMO– and she rarely disappoints in the feel-good story department. My (Not So) Perfect Life was a cute, relatable tale about a small town girl trying to “make it” in London, all while dealing with an off-limits crush and the pitfalls of social media. It definitely made me smile while reading, and kept me entertained while laying out at the pool this summer.

A$AP Ferg recently released his album “Still Striving,” and while I think it will be tough for him to ever top “Shabba” in my mind, the songs “Rubber Band Man” (ft. Cam’Ron ♡), “Nasty (Who Dat)” (ft. Migos ♡), and “Plain Jane” are definite #bops.

Other recent songs I’ve been into, in no particular order:

  • Imperfections” – Starrah x Diplo
  • No Limit” – G-Eazy ft. A$AP Rocky and Cardi B → side note: I’m not that into G-Eazy and kind of wish this wasn’t his song, tbh. I’m just here for Rocky and Cardi. ? 
  • Would You Ever” – Skrillex ft. Poo Bear
  • Roll In Peace” – Kodak Black ft. XXXTENTACION
  • Love a Loser” – Cassie ft. G-Eazy
  • Bad Business” – 21 Savage

I’ve been thinking about making monthly playlists, so let me know in a comment below if that’s something you’d be interested in!

I wish I included this product in my Summer Beauty Must-Haves, but I was a little late to the game in trying this cult-favorite. A couple weeks ago I *finally* picked up Milk Makeup’s Lip + Cheek Stick in the hue Perk after hunting for the perfect coral tone blush to work with glowy summer makeup looks. It has now become a staple in my makeup bag!

If you’re apprehensive about switching from powder blush to cream-based blush, I felt the same way. However, my powder blushes just weren’t giving me enough color payoff and I didn’t want to have to add layer after layer on my cheeks to achieve that “naturally flushed” look I’ve been after. In just a few dabs, this stick blush gives my cheeks the perfect pop of color, and is super blendable with either your fingers or a brush.

What are your current favorites in books or entertainment? I’d love any recommendations– leave a comment!
