Hey there!

We're Isabel & Marilyn

We’re sisters with creative hearts and souls who dig deep to bring you valuable and meaningful information to help you shine as the leading lady of your life.

Unlocking travel treasures to inspire your next adventure.

We hope you’re enjoying our recommendations for our weekly selection of Short Reads.

This week, we’re sharing the following:

A micro flash by Sarah Freligh (micro is even shorter than regular flash, and often about 250 words).

One of our all-time favourite flash creative nonfiction by Natalie Lima.

And a poem by one of Marilyn’s mentors, Sandra Beasley.

When we first came across these short pieces, they made us pause, think, and reflect–isn’t that the best? Readings that we connect with?

We hope you connect with these and that you find something in them that resonates with you.

Let us know which is your favourite in the comments below.

We share of love of Lisbon, Chihuahuas, sushi, coffee, binge-worthy tv, movies, being out in nature, the ocean, and our amazing mom.

And of course, we love literature and appreciate a kick-ass lipstick.






We're Isabel and Marilyn, the two sisters behind Letters and Lipstick.
