BOOK | If you consider yourself a TED talk connoisseur, chances are you've already heard of Brené Brown and her 2010 video "The Power of Vulnerability," among the five most-viewed TED talks in the world. In her latest book RISING STRONG, published in August, Brown invites readers to own their stories of struggle, insecurity and disappointment, recognizing that we can come to embrace our failures if we have the courage to rise again. She shares stories of wisdom from her 13 years as a professor of social work and extensive research into vulnerability, courage, worthiness and shame.

MUSIC | The Paper Kites are an indie-rock-folk band of Australian natives who know how to effortlessly combine harmonic vocals with acoustic guitar, creating the perfect sounds to study or relax to. The Melbourne-based group's second full-length album TWELVEFOUR is named after the theory that the height of an artist's creative process generally takes place between midnight and 4 am. The group spent the majority of their time working on the album in the late hours of the night; you can identify a darker, melancholic thread woven through the lyrics and sound.

INSTAGRAM | If you need any confirmation that the Pacific Northwest is a beautiful place to live in the fall, look out your window. Or just scroll through Instagram. Seriously, get outside. The account @PNWONDERLAND hosts a compilation of images from our corner of the country, highlighting the wonders of the great outdoors. The feed is filled with gorgeous shots of alpine lakes, mountains, trees, the Pacific Ocean and some occasional adventure dogs in between. The photos are just the inspiration you need to plan your next outdoor adventure. ♦
