MONDAY MINUTE | DONATE⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ I had an entirely other post planned for today, but this absolutely takes precedent. A lot of us have spent the last week raising our voices, taking a stand, listening to black educators, and just trying to learn. While that's great, it's not concrete. So put your money where your mouth is!⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ If you are able to donate, here are 5 amazing causes that need help NOW. If you're able, sign up for recurring donations. Snowball Fundraising ($20/month vs. $100 now) helps these groups so much more!⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ 01 | @bailproject - "The Bail Project, Inc. is a non-profit organization designed to combat mass incarceration by disrupting the money bail system ‒ one person at a time."⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ 02 | @blackvisionscollective - "Black Visions Collective envisions a world in which ALL Black Lives Matter. We use the guidance and brilliance of our ancestors as well as the teachings of our own experiences to pursue our commitment to dismantling systems of oppression and violence.

MONDAY MINUTE | FAVORITE BEACH READS⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Since today is Memorial Day and (even though you should ALL still be social distancing) the weather is warming up - today I'm sharing my 5 favorite beach reads. Whether you're actually on the beach or just enjoying a cocktail on your patio, these books are the perfect blend of sweetness, fun, and romance.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ 01 | The Devil Wears Prada by @laurenweisberger - I am very vocal about how much I hate this movie. Sure, Meryl is great, but they unnecessarily changed SO much for the PERFECT novel that it ruined it for me. Do yourself a favor and READ THE BOOK.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ 02 | Class Mom by @lauriegelman - I love both Class Mom novels, it's straight up just me. Laugh out loud funny and so much heart.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ 03 | The Happy Ever After Playlist by @authorabbyjimenez - Just read this. It's the most stunning description of love and fate. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ 04 | Party Girl by @msrachelhollis - While I'm not a fan of her as a motivational speaker, I loved this (and the subsequent) novel about a party planner.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ 05 | The Wedding Party by @jasminepics - This is the 3rd book in the series and while I think you should read all of them because they're so much fun, this one was my favorite love story. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ What is your favorite beach read?
