#MondayMotivation: Mindy Kaling

Today is our #BrillBookClub Twitter chat on the second half of Mindy Kaling’s “Why Not Me?”. In theme, this week’s #MondayMotivation quote is courtesy of  Mindy’s first book, “Is Everyone Hanging Out Without Me?” This quote reminds us that life isn’t always peaches and cream, but a little lip gloss and a change in mentality can make it bearable.

November Top 5

November is here and it may be warm and sunny this week, but it’s definitely time to prepare for the cold because “Winter is Coming”! It’s time to find our coziest sweaters and dig out our winter jackets! And since we’ll be hibernating during the cold, maybe a quick redecorate to make our homes even homier!
