Are you ready to read like never before?
Are you ready for fun reads, thought-provoking discussion questions, AND fun book giveaways? Look no more! Check out my NEW online book club, Reading Between The Wines starting now! I am super excited about this since many of you have asked me to create one, so here it is! Make sure to click on the "Click For Book Club Vibes" tab to your left, and you will then be connected to our new Facebook group! It's simple, just click to join, and keep up with us each month! Jump into June with this month's read, The Hate U Give x Angie Thomas. In this read, sixteen-year-old Starr Carter moves between two worlds: the poor neighborhood where she lives, and the fancy suburban prep school that she attends. Life comes at Starr fast when she witnesses a fatal shooting of her childhood best friend, Khalil at the hands of a police officer. Khalil was unarmed. Will Starr find her voice? Will Khalil's assailant be convicted? Come read with us to find out! This month I want to pose the question, "What are ways that you use your voice to promote social justice?" You are welcome to comment, repost, and mingle amongst each other! Also, it is a great way to meet new readers, engage in intellectual discussion, and read great reads (yes, wine is accepted!)

a few of my picks....
We just wanted to extend a HUGE thank you to all the amazing women that came out to our Melanin & Sunshine event this past weekend! It was a big success, and it was just an honor to mingle with each and every one of you, and it really was amazing to see all beautiful women of all shades come together and enjoy one another's company! We created Melanin & Sunshine as a great way for women of all shades to mingle, network, and share fun ideas over amazing food and mimosas, because who doesn't love a good mimosa? Guess what? We did just that! Cheers to all strong women: May we KNOW them. May we BE them. May we RAISE them! Thank you for believing in our vision, and thank you for sharing your love and light with us!
"Loved this event! Really enjoyed the conversation and the opportunity to mingle with other amazing women!"
"The conversation was on point! I am so ready for the next one!"
"My favorite moment was the questions and discussion time that we were able to share our stories and experiences with each other. I had a blast!"
"I was so thankful to be in a room full of women who could have open discussion and not feel judged!"
"I LOVE seeing a group of women come together of all different ages and generations having great conversations about love, careers, relationships, and day to day aspects of life! It was really dope as a younger woman hearing an older woman's perspective on various views and just feeling open in a judgement-free zone! I can't wait for the next event!"
"I LOVED the fun products! I can't wait to wear these cute buttons!"
"The food was absolutely amazing! I really enjoyed the spicy mixed with sweet options on the menu! The pasta salad was to die for!"
"The BEST event that I have ever been to. It is not often as women that we get a chance to just go to events and take care of us! This event was full of love, safe and open space, and great vibes! I would definitely recommend to a friend!"
