| BOOK REVIEW | GET THE HELL OVER IT BY SARAH BETH MOORE

Get The Hell Over itGet The Hell Over It
Author : Sarah Beth Moore
Genre : non fiction
Publication : September 1st 2017 by New Leaf Writing

Synopsis : Finally: The Real Way to Claim the Profitable Creative Life You’ve Always Wanted!

Cravings. We all have them. But these days, it’s easier to indulge your sweet tooth than it is to reach
your wildest dreams. At least, it certainly feels that way. And you know the type of dreams we’re talking
about, right? Everything from living where you want and building a career you can pursue around the
world, to accomplishments that stand the weight of time. These dreams go beyond hashtags and high-
resolution photos, and the best part is that they’re well within your reach. In fact, they’ve always have
been waiting for you. But when we’re afraid, it’s hard to pull back that huge curtain of fear and see our
heart’s desires. Don’t worry; you just need help putting it all together.

It’s the first time I’m reading (and reviewing) a non fictional book. And I’m glad Sarah contacted me for reviewing her book because I learned a lot of things while reading it !

You’ve always got this dream, and it kept nagging at you ? But you’re afraid to fail so you never decided to jump into the unknown ? Well, this book is made for you !

Sarah wrote a book in which she distills some precious advice. It’s short because it goes straight to the point. Thanks to her own experience and based on solid sources, she guides the reader on the difficult path of making this creative dream come true.
She separates the fantasy from a dream, and helps the reader to, well, get the hell over his fears.
She shares her tips : space, time, tools, she lets nothing aside !

There’s a even bonus : she finishes her chapters with exercises ! I think it’s really helpful !

To put it in a nutshell, I really enjoyed reading this book ! I learned a lot of things that I’m sure will be a plus for my blog !
I think it’s a precious book for those who want to launch their creative project but have always postponed it because of their fear of failure ! Read it, and get the hell over it !

About the author

Sarah Beth MooreSarah Beth Moore is a professional copywriter, content marketer and writing coach. If there’s one thing she’s learned from running a business and tippety-typing words all day, it’s this: Y’all, it just ain’t as hard as it looks.

Many people come to Sarah because they simply have no idea how to pursue that creative dream without fear, which prompted her eventually to write this book. Because the secret … well, there is no secret other than getting the hell over it. Which is surprisingly hard, but surprisingly possible, given just a few simple mindset shifts and some serious ovary-grabbing.

Sarah is a professional copywriter, content marketer and writing coach. She has a master’s degree in journalism from Northwestern University and has worked as a professional writer for the last seven years. She also possesses a master’s-level teaching degree, so she’s super good at telling other people what’s what. In addition to teaching courses on copywriting and direct marketing, she writes copy for a range of clients.

When she’s not working or teaching other creatives, she can be found reading young adult fantasy, binge-watching science fiction shows/movies/anything, and playing with her two rugrats.

SUMMER / BEACH READS

summer reads

Hello lovelies ! I missed yesterday’s TTT, so I decided to do a post about it anyway ! In Summer, I tend to read more romance books ! So yeah, be prepared !

The Islanders by Katherine Applegate is a series that I really really loved ! It’s about a bunch of teens living on a small island. Their posse, the relationships, the plot, the writing style… everything about this series I absolutely adored !

The Outlander series by Diana Gabaldon. I’ve only read the first two books but I can picture myself reading it wrapped in a comfy blanket, sipping tea or on my balcony, while drinking iced tea !

Archer’s Voice by Mia Sheridan is a wonderful contemporary read but I wouldn’t bring it to the beach with me you know ? I’m not a fan of crying in public hahaha !

Amy & Roger’s Epic Detour by Morgan Matson feels like a summer holiday. It’s about a road trip, and there are playlists ! Yep, definitively holidays !

Anna And The French Kiss and its two companion novels by Stephanie Perkins is the cutest read you could ever find ! Perfect for the Summer !

The After series by Anna Todd is far from being your usual romance read ! And it’s another book I wouldn’t bring to the beach with me ! I was obsessed with this series, I was so hard to put the book down !

It Ends With Us by Colleen Hoover is an eye-opener book ! It’s far from being a light read, but I loved it so much. It can be said for all CoHo’s books though.

The Air He Breathes by Brittainy C. Cherry, another powerful romance ! The perfect summer read !

That’s it ! Have you read any of these books ?

MY DREAM CRATE

my dream crate

Hello lovelies !

A while ago I heard about a project by Loot Crate where you can imagine your own dream box. Loot Crate is a geek and gift subscription box so I thought it would be funny to make a post about my dream crate….

so I thought it would be funny to make a post about my dream crate ! And guys, I have to confess, it’s hard to narrow it to just ONE box. But I had to make a choice, obviously. The box needs to contain a book, of course ! And since there’s this highly anticipated movie that just came out, and that it’s a book adaptation… Here it is !
At this point I think you all have guessed the theme but I’ll say it anyway  : Beauty And The Beast.

First thing first, since I’m a HUGE book lover (as if you’re not aware of this by now hahaha), this box needs to contain a book.

The Beauty And The Beast

This book is a special edition by Harper Collins with amazing illustrations inside. It would totally be a perfect choice for this dream box, right ?!

But it also needs goodies !

Tale As Old As TimeWhat would be a dream box without a candle ?! This is a Meraki Candle inspired by The Beauty And The Beast ! The picture is from her etsy store.
You can find it here. Her shop is full of amazing candles !
I can totally picture myself reading the book, wrapped in a comfy blanket while this candle is burning !

A funko pop is a must in a dream box ! I featured only these three but there are other ones available and all of them are cute and awesome !

tale as old as time bookmark

Alright ! This is the last item !
A wooden bookmark ! Seriously guys look at how pretty it is !

I really need this woodmark in my life haha !

It’s from Ink & Wonder shop !
This is her photo too. Her work is amazing !

That’s it ! My dream box… well my dream box of the moment ! I bet it would be different every month !
