Marvelous in my Monday #2

The Whole World: A Novel

Hello everyone! We’ve had such gorgeous hot weather over in Chicago. It’s marvelous. It’s my favorite type of weather, I love warmth and I was outside a lot. I can only handle it a little at a time though but it was marvelous to be able to go outside to the park and read while soaking up some sun rays. Such a wonderful feeling.

I found a pretty interesting book that I’ve been reading recently, “The Whole World” by Emily Winslow. I’ve been sucked in and I can’t stop reading. It’s very interesting, it’s about two American female college students over in Cambridge and a boy. The three get really close, two of them get into a situation that got pretty intimate, however the girl freaked out and got sick right in front of the guy and ran away from him in embarrassment. Then the guy goes missing and no one knows where he is and what happened. There is a lot of complexity and twists and turns, but not too many to make the read exhausting. It’s a great happy medium of suspense and curiosity. I recommend it. I’m only halfway done but so far so good. I’m still anxiously awaiting my turn in line for Fifty Shades of Grey at my library. Ahh!

Then I also received two packages today, which was marvelous because I freaking LOVE getting packages 🙂 It makes me happy. One of the things I got was an all-natural superfood 30 day weight management system called iChoice. I got a good deal on this system on Groupon so I decided to give it a try. I researched the heck out of it and it doesn’t sound harmful. It’s all about getting all the nutrients your body needs. It’s not a weight LOSS program, it’s a weight management program, which sounds better. Plus it’s stimulant-free. I don’t deal well with stimulants (I drink decaf..) so this sounded like a good deal. We’ll see how it goes and how I like it.

June is a huge month for summer festivals in Chicago. I went to my first festival of the year yesterday. It was the Old Town Art Fair and it was fun looking at all of the marvelous art as well as watching the Beatles’ cover band play (and they were SO good! They even looked like The Beatles!) After the fair, my roommate and I went to Big Bowl and I was pleasantly surprised to find that the restaurant is all about being organic, all-natural, and sustainable. I had no idea! Plus they had a delicious $6 seasonal sangria! The seasonal fruit of the day were strawberries.. mmmm!

Oh yeah, make sure you follow me on Instagram if you use one 🙂 @xokammie

Oh and keep the Nimble/QuickieChick giveaway entries coming! The giveaway ends in 3 days!!

  1. This looks like a great little package to have arrived right about now!! I wish it were on my doorstep. I’ve been considering Isagenix.. since you are “in the know” about this sort of thing.. what’s your opinion on that one?? A gal at our gym sells it so I would want to support her. It’s a 30 day cleanse.. eek (can I last that long??) xo Smidge

    • Hey Smidge! I actually haven’t heard of Isagenix before but I’m on their website right now and it seems like they have a HUGE list of different cleanses that they do. Hard to pick one haha. Which one does the girl sell at your gym? My overall opinion of intense cleanses is that I don’t do them. If I restrict myself from eating something I crave, I eventually go into a frenzy and I just binge, sooner or later. But from what I can see on the website, it seems like a legit idea and goal of the company. If you don’t get that reaction from doing something restrictive, then I say you should go for it. It really depends on what the cleanse consists of, exactly. I’d need to know more if I would personally go for it. How restricitive it is. If you decide to do it, I’d love to find out how it goes 🙂

  2. Wow, never heard of that brand and looks like it could be good! Will have to let us all know what you think of the products!

    Glad you joined in! <3

  3. Yay! What a marvellous Monday 😀

    Also, yes! Packages are the best. They have the instant ability to brighten any day of mine. Presents in the mail. Enjoy yours – the system looks interesting! Looking forward to seeing what you think of it!

  4. After reading your review of The Whole World, I added it to my list of “must-reads.” It sounds like a book I’d love! Once I’m finished with summer session, I’ll have lots of time to do *fun* reading. First up, The Hunger Games trilogy (I know, it’s soooo 8 months ago, but when you’re a full time grad student, you fall behind ) 😉

    iChoice sounds like an interesting nutrition program; definitely let us know how it goes!!

    • Yes! I’m now 3/4 of the way done and I still love it haha. I just get so happy when I find books that I genuinely love. Even though I love to read and do it a lot, there are a lot of books that I stop reading after the first 30 pages cause they don’t keep my attention. I guess I’m picky? haha, have you read Fifty Shades of Grey? Everyoneeee and their mother is all about it and I need to get my hands on it already! I haven’t read the Hunger Games either though so you’re not alone. I’m not a huge scifi geek. But let me know how you like it once you’re done, I actually haven’t heard too much about the books, just the movie (which I also haven’t seen lol) Thanks for stopping by 🙂 xo

  5. How did the iChoice 30-day program work out for you? I am thinking of purcchasing it through groupon as well. Thanks!
