About the Book

A compelling dual-narrated tale from Jennifer Latham that asks the question - how far have we really come with race relations in the last 100 years?

Some bodies won't stay buried.
Some stories need to be told.

When seventeen-year-old Rowan Chase finds a skeleton on her family's property, she has no idea that investigating the brutal century-old murder will lead to a summer of painful discoveries about the past... and the present.

Nearly one hundred years earlier, a misguided violent encounter propels seventeen-year-old Will Tillman into a racial firestorm. In a country rife with violence against blacks and a hometown segregated by Jim Crow, Will must make hard choices on a painful journey towards self discovery and face his inner demons in order to do what's right the night Tulsa burns.

Through intricately interwoven alternating perspectives, Jennifer Latham's lightning-paced page-turner brings the Tulsa race riot of 1921 to blazing life and raises important question about the complex state of US race relations - both yesterday and today.

So anyone who even knows a little bit about me knows that I love a good highlight!  Like I really, really love a highlight.  I love it so much, that pretty much whenever a new highlighter comes out, I pick it up.  Now while I own a lot of different highlighters, I don’t claim to own them all.  But, as with anything, there are exceptions to this rule.  That exception is any of the Glow Kits from Anastasia Beverly Hills because I own every.last.one and I am not sorry about that at all.  I use them all the time and I absolutely live for them.  So let’s take a look at the Anastasia Beverly Hills Glow Kits.

Now I absolutely love a good face mask.  It’s probably the only form of self-care that I actually indulge in on a regular basis.  There is something that is just so relaxing and luxurious about a good face mask.  Face masks are always something I have indulged in, but never any one particular brand.  Well all that changed a few years ago at the One of a Kind Show because that is when I began exploring the world of face masks with Artifact Skin Co.

Anastasia Beverly Hills Summer Mini Lip Gloss Set

 

I am so, so bad.  I’ve literally been sitting on these since sometime last summer.  It’s another case of buy it and forget about it.  But I guess it isn’t as bad as it could be because the Anastasia Beverly Hills Summer Mini Lip Gloss Set ($28 USD) is still available for purchase.  In any case, this Anastasia Beverly Hills Summer Mini Lip Gloss Set is my first forray into the world of Anastasia Beverly Hills Lip products and when I bought it, I certainly hoped that it would live up to the hype.  Long story shot; they do, and they have very quickly earned HG status with me. So let’s take a look at these bad boys.

Yves Saint Laurent | The Street and I Collection Information | Spring 2017

I can’t believe that it’s time to start talking about Spring 2017, at least in terms of beauty that is.  Up first is The Street and I Collection for Spring 2017 from none other than Yves Saint Laurent.  This campaign is fronted by none other than Staz Lindes and the collection itself is young, hip and edgy.  While I am probably not going to pick up the entire collection, I will more than likely pick up a few things.  I love YSL, and their limited edition packaging is always to die for.    Plus, I’m digging all of the orange to be found in the The Street and I Collection!
