#Girlboss by Sophia Amoruso

*Psst* Click the picture to find a copy

I picked up #Girlboss because I love books about women in the fashion industry. I have quite a few others on my list including Tales From the Back Row, The Glitter Plan, and although not by a woman, Start Something That Matters. You could say that I have a fascination with people who have started brands and those who are ingrained in the industry.

This book is not at all what I expected because I really didn't know what I was getting into. I knew that people were raving about it and that I like so I grabbed a copy! It was great and inspiring and reminded me that something huge can be created out of a small, great idea. I have a full book of fashion ideas that I want to do and when I get discouraged the lessons in this book made me think about accomplishing some of them. I had a hard time relating to Sophia because I never had trouble in school and I am not at all the anarchist or goth-type, but I do understand not feeling fulfilled and often getting restless in my day-to-day life.

I am a creative at heart and I am also a perfectionist, just like she talks about being and the fact that she creates a job for herself that fits her is amazing to me. It's something I have always wanted to do, but the responsible side of me that's worried about bills and insurance always holds me back. I love all the #Girlboss advice and the strong female empowerment threads that run through the whole book. Sophia Amoruso and would be an amazing person to work with!

This book was great to read at the end of the year (I finished it right before I started Blogmas) because it gave me a jump start for the New Year. I would definitely recommend putting this on your January TBR, so that you can get the same inspired feeling that I did! I wrote down a ton of personal and career goals and knowing that I can reference back to #Girlboss is quite a comfort. It's obvious that you can copy someone else's career path, but knowing that another woman followed her own path and built her online empire makes me feel like it's not totally crazy to follow my own path, too!

Love you lots,
