A girlfriend just went away recently and while giving the airport book store a little browse she happened upon this gem. After getting home she read me an over the top and hilarious passage and I was sold. I couldn’t put it down - I was LAUGHING OUT LOUD.
'Heads in Beds: A Reckless Memoir of Hotels, Hustles, and So-Called Hospitality' by Jacob Tomsky is comedy writing at it’s finest. Having worked in the hospitality industry for more than a decade, Jacob has “Checked you in, checked you out, separated your white panties from the white bed sheets, parked your car, tasted your room-service meals, finished your room service meals, cleaned your toilet, denied you a late checkout, given you a wake-up call, eaten M&Ms out of your minibar, laughed at your jokes, and taken your money. In Heads in Beds he pulls back the curtain to expose the crazy and compelling reality of a multi-billion-dollar industry we think we know.”
I recommend this book to anyone who wants to laugh, because TRUST ME, you will.
I have been researching all sorts of genres of books lately. From sci-fi to self-help and beyond for a little project. Shay and I happened to fall into a little book store in Malibu a couple weekends ago and this certain book caught my eye "Spirit Junkie" by Gabrielle Berstein. I started it last night and am now finished. It was enlightening, uplifting and a true discovery of self. It is for anyone in any sort of walk of life that sometimes just needs a little spiritual and emotional push. By no means am I preaching or saying you need to read this but it never hurt to do a little self-work and self-discovery. After all, we are ALL works in progress…

I just finished reading our most recent Book Review recommendation, ‘Inferno’ by Dan Brown - ugh…what an amazing book…I honestly wish it never ended. Now I am on a serious reading kick and wanted to start another one ASAP. After some research and asking my fellow “bookies” what they recommended, I happened upon 'Lean In: Women, Work and the Will to lead' by Sheryl Sandberg - my mom just finished it and was RAVING about it….I unfortunately was to engrossed in Inferno to care until now…
With women now being 50% of college graduates but men still holding the vast majority of leadership positions in government and industry, Sandberg examines why women’s progress in achieving leadership roles has stalled, explains the root causes, and offers compelling, commonsense solutions that can empower women to achieve their full potential. ‘Lean In’ digs deeper into these issues, combining personal anecdotes, hard data, and compelling research to cut through the layers of ambiguity and bias surrounding the lives and choices of working women.
For all of you future CEOs, Entreprenuers, Students and Intelligent young beauties out there this is a MUST READ! Enjoy it by the pool this weekend or at your favorite beach…and don’t forget to let me know what you think!
Happy Reading my little book worms!
