RED.BLK.GRL BOOK UNBOXING (Yes, MY FIRST ONE)

Sunday, August 20, 2017


I'm very excited to announce that I'm a rep for Red.Blk.Grl book subscription. WHOOOO! This is my first time ever being a rep for any subscription, but this is one that is a perfect fit for me. A special thanks to Maria the owner of Red.Blk.Grl. Here's what I received for August:


This month's theme is: GIRL ON THE GO



The first thing I saw was silver tumbler with this month's theme. I've been meaning to buy one of these for the longest time so now I have one.


I'm OBSESSEDD WITH THESE CHIPS. They are a combination of popcorn & rice cakes and I've been trying to find them everywhere. But one of my friends who is the real MVP found where I can buy them. THEY ARE HEALTHY TOO-GMO- Free, Vegan Free....everything. BUY THEM!


Next, there were a pair of sunglasses so you can stay cool and natural lip balm made with vanilla and mint. (No one likes chapped lips. *smh*)


Then came the flash tattoos.


The book I received was Mare's War by Kanita S. David. Here's the Goodreads synopsis: 

Meet Mare, a World War II veteran and a grandmother like no other. She was once a willful teenager who escaped her less than perfect life in the deep South and lied about her age to join the African American Battalion of the Women's Army Corps. Now she is driving her granddaughters—two willful teenagers in their own rite—on a cross-country road trip. The girls are initially skeptical of Mare's flippy wigs and stilletos, but they soon find themselves entranced by the story she has to tell, and readers will be too.

Told in alternating chapters, half of which follow Mare through her experiences as a WAC and half of which follow Mare and her granddaughters on the road in the present day, this novel introduces readers to a larger-than-life character and a fascinating chapter in African American history.

Thank you Maria again!
