Bola’s writing style is lighthearted and her advice is quite accessible and encouraging, helping to develop a vocabulary and mindset for talking about money and financial wellness and navigating our own murky financial waters and come out afloat on the other side.
I find that I’ve come to love to add a bit of extra flavor to my water, and recently decided to gift myself a Mami Wata Fruit Infuser Water Bottle to introduce a little more stylish design into my life.

I take this water bottle everywhere and the latch feature keeps everything intact and secure from spills, allowing me to put it in my purse or bag worry free. I most definitely recommend this product with an assurance that you’ll receive complements and envious smiles based on its sensible and stylish design that looks much more expensive than its actual cost.
I’ve been on the wine train lately and most definitely enjoy the calm that a nice glass of wine can bring to my overall sense of wellness. Especially red wine — Pinot Noir, Red Blends, and certainly my all time fave, Malbec. In settling into my new home, I’m adopting an Olivia Pope, grown-woman, independent-ish spirit, and find that I absolutely love the visual appeal of a good crystal wine glass. I’ve grown particularly fond of the Elixir Glassware Crystal Wine Glasses that offer exceptional clarity and an elegant slender stem that gracefully showcase my choice libation.
These glasses are carefully crafted to direct the wine to the center of the tongue, creating a harmony of fruit, acidity and tannin flavors, resulting in a delightful experience worth savoring alone of with good company. I really love how luxurious this set looks, and the fact that it doesn’t break the bank is a real plus. They offer a spontaneous prompt to invite my girlfriends over for an opportunity to bond over work, relationships, and other matters and things worth sharing, including my Melbec.
