It's no secret that I'm a big fan and admirer of Reese Witherspoon: entrepreneur, Oscar winning actress, and Emmy award winning producer! Ever since I can remember, I've adored her!

Film and TV Adaptations

There seems to be more and more... and more books being adapted into films or tv shows -- more than usual I should say, over the past few years. It's definitely a "popular" thing to do right now if you're a producer...and books definitely seem like go-to materials for studios lately.

NO SPOILERS AHEAD! :)

I recently finished watching 13 REASONS WHY. I haven't read the book yet, but thanks to my friend Krystal, I have hers to read through (thanks girl!).

I've had a constant dialog and open discussion with friends about Netflix's 13-episode tv adaptation (and every crazy moment that happens in it).....

It's been a couple of weeks since the Big Little Lies finale (if you haven't watched this engrossing series, check out all 7 of the episodes now on HBO)! 

I really enjoyed the performances in this series a lot. I feel like everyone was really well cast & my girl Reese💕✨, Nicole✨, Shailene, Zoe, Alexander, & Laura gave some of their best work in this miniseries.
