Book: Girl Talk: Unsolicited Advice for Modern Ladies
Author: Christie Young
Publication Date: August 14, 2014
Girl Talk is a charmingly illustrated book featuring light hearted "advice" aimed towards young women who have nothing better to do than stress over text messages and zit cream. I had a bit of a hard time reading through it, but could appreciate some of the humorous anecdotes and the overall message. For a book that relies heavily on it's illustrations, I was surprised by how boring the color palette was - yellow, black and white. Honestly, it's a little cringe worthy to look at if you're over the age of 21. Or maybe 17. It's a cute enough book that I could see it being gifted as part of a care package to someone you don't know that well; but otherwise it's the type of book you'll skim through once and never touch again or take away anything meaningful from unless you aim to become quite self involved. I received this book for review purposes from Blogging for Books; all opinions are my own.

The plain colorful pots were 99 cents at IKEA! and the others were painted terra cotta pots, using Apple Barrel paint.
The plants above in the painted pots: sunflowers, chinese forget me nots, forget me nots, pansies and impatiens. Some of them aren't doing too well, since our deck is a little too shady and I planted way late in the season. :(
The other store bought plants are impatiens and a japanese fern.
The plastic dancing figurines are from dollar tree!
