BOOKS: Americanah By – Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie

| April 21, 2017

My thoughts: I first discovered Chimamanda when Beyonce sampled her speech titled “We Should All Be Feminists” in her 2013 single “Flawless.” Then, of course, I started seeing articles, news clips, videos and more so naturally I grew curious. Chimamanda is EVERYTHING y’all. Strong. Beautiful. Smart and more. Synopsis: A powerful, tender story of race and identity […]

As a person who studies CEO habits for fun, I can’t tell you enough how much the tactics, routines, and habits have enriched my life. There’s something so fascinating about the way successful people think and do things. […]

My thoughts: Memoirs are my favorite and I received this book right on time. My friend Gwen gave it to me during a major transition in my life because she knows how much I love – love stories – or lack thereof. I don’t want to spoil it for you, but trust me when I […]

In addition to founding and operating 3 successful brands, what most people don’t know is that I still have a nine to five (that I love btw). When I tell people this, they are always surprised. One of my friends asked, “when do you sleep?” Another friend commented, “I would’ve never known because you run […]

My thoughts: I have personal ties to this book because 3 years ago I was ring shopping with my ex boyfriend. Yes girl, now my ex. Most recently he invited me out to dinner to catch up and only minutes into the discussion, he dropped a bomb. I learned that my ex man was newly engaged […]

| May 10, 2016

My thoughts: It’s so disappointing how underrated this book is. Her first of many New York Times Best Sellers and one of my greatest inspirations as a writer. I’ve read it at least 3 times and will continue to read it until I can uncover every lesson. Favorite Quote: “I told him my love for […]
