Since we just finished celebrating International Women’s Day, why not continue HERstory with some gifts for the superwoman in your life (or maybe for yourself!)?! A few weeks ago I received a box full of goodies that are exactly what I needed but didn’t purchase for myself. My latest
I am an avid reader and I seriously wish I had more time to read for pleasure, but as a mom of 3 active boys, it’s not as often as I would like. Instead, I squeeze it in while I’m waiting for appointments, in the school pick-up line, or before bed! I was pumped to get a selection of books from Harlequin that feature strong female protagonists, tales about love and friendship and other stories of female empowerment.
savage news by jessica yellin
Savage news is authored by former CNN Chief White House correspondent Jessica Yellin and I just finished it. I have a MUCH better understanding of the challenges faced by female broadcasters now and I love how Yellin delivers the message along with a healthy dose of humor and a little romance!
honey bus by Meredith may
I’ve always been fascinated by beekeeping, so I couldn’t wait to crack open this novel! Honey Bus is a creative blend of memoir and the art of beekeeping, weaving a tale of finding home with the help of a tiny bee. This book will show you how much we can really learn about family, community, loyalty, and survival from a colony of bees narrated told through the author’s childhood relationship with her beekeeping grandfather. It’s a great read!
how we disappeared by jing-jing lee
Set in Singapore in 1942, this novel is a very moving story about a young woman who is kidnapped and forced into sexual slavery. The story follows her through her life as the experience continues to haunt her and she finally reveals her secret to her grandson who sets off on a mission to uncover the real story. If you love historical fiction, you will REALLY enjoy this book and its heartbreaking narrative.
Harlequin is currently running a #StrongWomenRead sweepstakes that

I have worn Earth Shoes for years (my favorite pair of short boots are Earth Shoes!) and they have some beautiful shoes available for spring! I have had issues with my feet forever, so I’m very careful with the shoes that I wear day in and day out. I’m on my feet a lot, so heel to toe cushioning and great arch support are a MUST.
Not only are these shoes super comfy but Earth Shoes is also a very socially conscious company and that’s very important to me. For each pair of Earth Shoes purchased, a tree is planted. I am loving the Rosewood clove style I received. They are comfy, casual shoes that are perfect for everyday wear and who doesn’t love a slip-on?
As a woman who has always had issues with her skin, I’m constantly on the lookout for skincare products that are effective AND natural and cruelty-free. As women, hormones can definitely affect how our skin appears on any given day of the month, and Knours is a hormonal skincare line created specifically to help us with this issue! This clean beauty line is EWG Verified™ and cruelty-free.
