If you ever thought that you were the only person to own a closet full of regrettable fashion choices then you are definitely mistaken. Whether it’s a sequined jacket you purchased for the holiday season twenty years ago or a pair of cowboy boots that you only wore once on vacation, there is no judgement. Take a glimpse into the closets of CEOs, fishermen, fashion designers, and even kids as they ask “what was I thinking?”

Estee Lalonde has become one of YouTube's top beauty gurus and instead of a makeup tutorial she delivers Bloom. Capturing the essence of creating content for a living she introduces us to the woman behind the camera and how her lifestyle changes can be beneficial. Usually we often catch her in the fuss of product review videos and fashion look-books, but wrote to encourage us to discover what genuinely makes us happy.

After bottling lighting and infusing it into the Rodeo Drive retail brands of Nasty Gal and #Girlboss, Sophia Amoruso repeats this feat with Nasty Galaxy (Putnam, $37). Comprised, in part, of fashion + interior design, photography, recipes, and profiles on glam punk, riot grrrl, womanist icons (Patti Smith, Tura Santana, Pam Grier, Siouxie Sioux), Nasty Galaxy thrives on free association as Amoruso charts a cosmology of kick-ass. Each of the twelve chapters, appended to a corresponding astrological sign, is heralded by the artwork of an iconic album cover, featuring artists such as Bauhaus, Betty Davis, and David Bowie. This luminous volume, swathed in a hot pink cloth cover, reads like a hypnotic Instragram feed, or an analog version of your favorite Tumblr/Pintrest board. Accordingly, its additional featured lists and assorted quotes pop like memes on the lustrous pages of its square folio, including one attributed to the oft black-clad rocker, Joan Jett—“I Don’t Look Good In Beige.” Immersed in defiant style and self-assuring swagger, Nasty Galaxy will lighten moods and brighten any room.
