Series | Feature Friday!

Dolls, our special guest just announced that she is expecting her first baby and I couldn't be more happy for Whitney and her husband! Whitney's IG brightens my day and we have so much in common, from our love of makeup to our love for a certain rom-com geinus Aven Ellis! One of the first times I commented on Whit's IG was to ask her what she thought of Kayla Paine the villian cause I couldn't wait to tell her that was me :) Anyway enough of me, here's the mommy to be, xo!

I'm 27, Aries, and have been married for 5 years. I met my hubby in college about 10 years ago!!! Also, we are expecting our first child in August!! 
I love reading, playing with makeup, online shopping, and spending time with my husband Austin and my Weimaraner, Lucy.
I have dual bachelor's degrees in English Literature (with a concentration in British Lit) and Spanish. I'm currently a Library Assistant at my local library but have plans to receive my Master's in Library Science in the very near future so I can be an official Librarian. :)

Social Media Links: 


what made you start a blog?  
I wanted an outlet to share my love of books and reading.
p&b-who or what inspires you? 
My family inspires me. I want to inspire a love of reading in those who don’t like to read. I want everyone to see how wonderful and beautiful the world of books is.
favorite author? 
Oh this is a tough one! Currently, I’m obsessed with Colleen Hoover, but I also love Aven Ellis, A.G. Howard, Kate White, and Megan Shepherd.
favorite book or series of all time? 
Man, another tough one! I’ll have to say that The Fault in Our Stars, All the Light We Cannot See, A Man Called Ove, and Between Shades of Gray are my favorites as of now!

p&b-you run a website based on books and reviews-why did you decide to base your blog around this? 
I have always enjoyed reading and if I enjoy a book, I love to talk about it. I also enjoy writing, so WordsWisdomWhitney was born.

what's the best part of running a book blog? 
The best part of running a book blog is the fact that I can get complimentary books from authors or publishers for review! It’s awesome. I also love the joy of connecting with others over books!

now that it's 2017, do you make resolutions? if so, what are they? 
I don’t usually make resolutions at the start of the New Year, but occasionally if I want to set a goal throughout the year I’ll do that. My goals so far are to spend less, use what I have, and read at least a couple books that have been on my TBR for ages.

p&b-must have product? 
Mascara (Maybelline Lash Sensational is my go-to!!) or lip balm/gloss (I love EOS balms and the LancĂ´me Juicy Shakers because they are easy and hydrating.)
fave beauty trend? 
Definitely highlighting!!! I love trying new highlighters. My current fave is using a damp sponge to apply BeccaxJaclynHill Champagne Pop!
best advice you've ever received? 
When I was younger my dad always encouraged learning and the value of education. He told me even if someone were to take away all of your possessions and belongings, they can’t take your education from you. I strive to read and learn something new every day because knowledge is power!

if you could collab with any brand, who would it and what would the collab feature? 
Probably Too Faced because they have the CUTEST    products. I would love to do a warm-toned eyeshadow palette scented with a  coconut/beachy scent!

p&b-if you could switch lives with any celebrity, who would it be? 
Probably Taylor Swift because I love her fashion sense and she just seems so fun!
