Happy Thursday! This week has absolutely FLOWN by my goodness, it needs to stop, spring break must last FOREVER and then and only then will I be satisfied that that is a long enough break for me, yeah, that'd be nice. But alas, time does fly when you're having fun! And I actually am! I've been scrapbooking, and trying new recipes, enjoying the freedom of not having stacks on stacks on stacks of work to do, which is SO relieving, overall it's been a fantastic week so far :)

When I was putting this outfit together I reminded myself of Sophia Amoruso on the cover of her book #GirlBoss, which I haven't read (actually JUST amazon primed ((is amazon prime a verb now?)) and I'm super excited for it) but I've seen the cover everywhere so I'm familiar with it. And it got me thinking, not only do I need to read the dang book myself, but what a "Girl Boss" actually is. To me it's someone who is independent, strong, and manages all things around them with effortless power, yet is only aggressive where she needs to be, and is always on her game to make everything fair and equal, not seeing others as competition but as a support system helping her better herself in an intelligent positive way and always doing the same for others. I push myself everyday to be this ideal image of a girl boss, someone who is so strong and full of passion for what they do. I also think now, more than ever, it is incredibly important to not only support yourself as a girl boss, but to continue to lift up the fellow girl bosses around you. So I haven't read this book yet, but once I do, I'll be sure to do some sort of write up about it :) BUT in honor of all my beautiful girl bosses out there, here are some quotes from other girl bosses around the world!
