WWW Wednesdays!

• What are you currently reading?

Game of Thrones: A Storm of Swords - I'm half way through this book but I've been delaying on finishing this book for months now cause I didn't want to end it just yet. Recently, I decided to pick it up again and continue where I left off.

• What did you recently finish reading?

#GirlBoss - This book is amazing. It follows Sophia's journey on how she built Nasty Gal, her own successful business and became a powerful brand in the saturated world of fashion industry. What makes her even more admirable is that she neither have a college degree nor any background in business. Additionally, she gives sound advice and how to's in order to empower women and become the best version of themselves. This isn't only for budding entrepreneurs but it is also perfect for women in their 20s who are building their career and trying find purpose and meaning.
