I was obsessed with this clutch purse ever since I bought it this month from Amazon. It has a lot of space and is an excellent quality clutch that is also a wristlet. This clutch can also double as a diaper bag clutch if you are a mama like me. I wear mines as a short strap pocketbook on my shoulders while shopping. Idaho Jones - Bailey has affordable options to fit any mom or woman on the go lifestyle. 

The price point for this clutch is $14.00.

Books That I Read this month: 

The title fits the name well. I listened to Kiese's book on Audible. Some moments were so heavy upon my thoughts to hear him talk.  I gave this book and Audible 5 stars. Foward from Amazon - 

In Heavy, Laymon writes eloquently and honestly about growing up a hard-headed black son to a complicated and brilliant black mother in Jackson, Mississippi. From his early experiences of sexual violence to his suspension from college to his trek to New York as a young college professor, Laymon charts his complicated relationship with his mother, grandmother, anorexia, obesity, sex, writing, and ultimately gambling.

By attempting to name secrets and lies he and his mother spent a lifetime avoiding, Laymon asks himself, his mother, his nation, and us to confront the terrifying possibility that few in this nation actually know how to responsibly love, and even fewer want to live under the weight of actually becoming free.

Bridget Jones's Diary meets Americanah in this disarmingly honest, boldly political, and genuinely inclusive novel that will speak to anyone who has gone looking for love and found something very different in its place. 
Queenie Jenkins is a 25-year-old Jamaican British woman living in London, straddling two cultures and slotting neatly into neither. She works at a national newspaper, where she's always forced to compare herself to her white middle-class peers. After a messy break-up from her long-term white boyfriend, Queenie seeks comfort in all the wrong places...including several hazardous men who do an excellent job of occupying brain space and a false position of affirming self-worth. 
As Queenie careens from one questionable decision to another, she finds herself wondering, "What are you doing? Why are you doing it? Who do you want to be?" - all of the questions today's woman must face in a world trying to answer them for her. 
With "fresh and honest" (Jojo Moyes) prose, Queenie is a remarkably relatable exploration of what it means to be a modern woman searching for meaning in today's world. 

I rated this book 3 stars. There were times in this book that I wanted to shake her into reality. This book does also touches on mental health issues. Many black Millenials may be able to take something from reading this book or listening to the Audible.

For the little ones:

Eli loves this book very much. He has been waiting for me to read this book to him almost every night for August. If you would like to learn more about this book and even purchase it, then just simply click here.
