The Gentleman’s Guide to Vice and Virtue

That’s a really long title. This is a really long post. It was going to be a book review but it turned into more of a book report. You’ve been warned.

I recently finished The Gentleman’s Guide to Vice and Virtue by Mackenzi Lee. It’s a YA historical adventure fiction story, but written with modern-style prose which makes it more digestible for today’s average teenager.

Room Makeovers Without Money

I recently read a great article “Minimalism is Just Another Boring Product Wealthy People Can Buy” which raised some great points about how minimalism and nice decor are out of reach for most people, and it got me thinking. The rooms and dorm rooms I’ve decorated over the last five years, could I have done those if it weren’t for my parents’ and my place of financial privilege? Answer: Probably not.
