On My Bedside Table

on my bedside table 2

This month the collection of books on my bedside table ranges from serious to seriously funny; a MUST read for all women, a must have for cooks at all levels and a year in the life of one of my all time favorite TV personalities. Here’s what I’m reading this month, leave a comment letting me know what’s on your list!

Playing Big: Find Your Voice, Your Mission, Your Message by Tara Mohr. I first came across this book when I saw an interview with Kate Northrup {author of Money A Love Story} and after hearing Mohr’s talk passionately  about her dreams for all women to find their mission, their voice and truly play bigger I ran right out and bought this game changing book. In fact I just ordered another copy, as I gave mine away today to a woman I knew would value the message as much as I do. I have a feeling this will be happening many times in the next few years.

“Playing Big provides real, practical tools to help women quiet self-doubt, identify their callings, “unhook” from praise and criticism, unlearn counterproductive good girl habits, and begin taking bold action.”

Mastering the Art of French Cooking (2 Volume Set) by Julia Child. Simone Beck. Anyone remotely interested in learning the subtle, and sometimes not so subtle, techniques used in cooking will find this an invaluable tool in their kitchen. Mine just happens to live on my nightstand. And that is no joke. I frequently quickly grab it before I get up and decide upon a recipe for the day.

Mastering the Art of French Cooking is for both seasoned cooks and beginners who love good food and long to reproduce at home the savory delights of the classic cuisine.” Bon appétit!

Create the Style You Crave on a Budget You Can Afford: The Sweet Spot Guide to Home Decor by Desha Peacock. In this unique and hip home décor style guide, you will find the inspiration to explore your own sense of style, discover the essence of what makes your home feel good to you, and learn how to mix vintage, modern, and thrift store finds to create the eclectic look you crave on a budget you can afford.

No matter your budget or style, you’ll be inspired by stories of everyday women with busy lives and limited budgets who have infused personal values, meaning, and style into making their own “sweet spot” homes.” See more Desha in my interview with her here.

The Andy Cohen Diaries: A Deep Look at a Shallow Year by Andy Cohen. If you follow me on social media at all you know I am a huge BRAVO fan. Sure I watch the Housewives, Top Chef and a few other shows but my main adiction is to Whatch What Happens Live! If it is 11:00pm you know where to find me. Laughing out loud and smiling ear to ear as I watch Andy’s unmistakable boyish passion about the world of pop culture. His first book Most Talkative: Stories from the Front Lines of Pop Culture kept me reading straight through till the end, barely putting it down. I look forward to having the same experience with this book.
