This Month’s Picks: August 2015

Compiled by: Gabriela Yareliz

Happy September! We survived August. August was personally filled with a lot of changes and constant movement for me. I am excited to know that autumn is just around the corner. I love fall. The other day, I was lounging on my mattress, and when I looked up at the window, it started pouring. City rain. The temperature dropped, and autumn seemed to be whispering it’s coming.

I saw so many interesting articles, trial news and music this month. I tried to gather some of my favorite things, which you may have seen in other posts, and I compiled them here to celebrate August.

Enjoy, and stay inspired!

  1. City rain and the coming of fall. Something soothing about that, despite 90 degree temp today:). And every time I hear Amal speak, I rejoice that–for once–a Hollywood hunk chose a smart woman.
