Just Another Bougie Black Girl Memoir? Bitch is the New Black

6 Jan

Interim Book Review: Bitch is the New Black

Progress  – 89% complete. I wouldn’t normally write a review without completing the book, but I wanted to put down some of my initial thoughts. I’ll follow up with a review of the bookclub meeting that’s scheduled for Sunday.

I’m cheating on my current bookclub with my Best Friend’s Bookclub.  I’m scrambling to finish Bitch is the New Black by Helena Andrews. I’ve been looking for a reason to read this book. It was all the rage and garnered a lot of attention in DC and amongst my bougie crowd. I’m bougie, I’ll admit it.

Now Carrying: I start the year with Michael Kors

5 Jan

A few weeks ago, I didn’t know what was wrong with me. I had purchased a brand new tote bag from one of my favorite Soulcialite friendly sites and I waited nearly two weeks to break it out. Well, let me tell you, I was robbing myself. Because when I finally got around to using the bag, I fell in love with this  Michael Kors Jacquard Tote.

Stylish, Functional Michael Kors Jacquard Tote

I used it to travel back to South Carolina for the holiday and I have to admit that I LOVE how incredibly spacious, not to mention stylish this bag is. Notice the hanging MK symbol in a weighty gold.

This bag was so big and spacious, it carried all of my electronic devices (ipod, camera, cell phone) along with books for the trip without being too bulky.

The bag has also been incredibly stylish with a variety of wardrobes- office wear or casual. It caught the eye of several, including my grocery store check out girl. Take it anywhere. It fits nicely on your shoulder or in your arm crease.

The website where I bought this fabulous new handbag to add to my Collection is accepting new members. If you want one, simply click here.

Happy Shopping!

Reset Your Life: 31 Day Challenge

2 Dec

Today is Day One of @HappyBlackWoman’s #31dayreset. This is a innovative combination of social media and personal challenge. To learn more about the challenge, check this: http://ow.ly/3imwU  

Rosetta Thurman sets the bar again with this social media integration into the field of personal development.

I’ve selected a notebook with the word ‘Create’ on the cover. I will dedicate it to exploring myself through the exercises of this challenge over the month of December.

So what 2010 didn’t go the way I expected it? Tomorrow is a new day and the 2011 is around the corner.

My Personal Mantra for the #31dayreset

“It begins today. I will live in the moment, breathe, pray, and have the kind of faith that involves the action of my feet.”

I was inspired to write this mantra about a year ago and I would like to use this #31dayreset to write some other affirmations.

Follow the #31dayreset hashtag on twitter.

If you’re looking to transform or to be inspired, follow this challenge as a part of my Transitions Diary.
