Musical Monday, Aziz Ansari + Modern Romance

Aziz ansari quote
Another Monday is upon us, and I’ve always felt the beginning of the week requires some kind of mantra, theme, words of wisdom; whatever your flavor. So here’s some exciting news- did you know Aziz Ansari (AKA Tom Haverford, Tommy Fresh, the man behind Treat Yo’self Day & DJ Roomba) wrote a book about relationships? Normally I’m not a fan of relationship writing because it’s all very subjective. However- I read an excerpt in a magazine last week, and it was actually, dare I say it, pretty charming.

This quote made me so happy- enough to request that my local library get a copy immediately. The book is called Modern Romance, and it comes out June 16th. Obviously I can’t wait. Will you be reading?

Music monday

In other news, I finally got around to creating a dedicated Musical Monday playlist on Spotify,so please feel free to follow. I’m slowly building up a list of past Musical Monday faves, and will continue to add new songs each week. If you have any suggestions, please let me know- I’m always looking for new music. This week’s song is newer to me. I’ve heard Sylvan Esso in the past, but my friend Tess introduced me to this song a few weeks ago, and it’s been on repeat. Check it out below! And as always, let me know if you have suggestions for new books and music- they’re my two favorite things.
