Bravely MisEducated: How I Lost My Voice (The Root Edition) by Teressa Boone

I’ve decided to share my coming-to-age memoir with the world. I want to inspire all people to lift their voices in faith and hope and continue to lift them until we are truly liberated. As I always say, “I will always be the one to tell MY STORY first…”

Bravely MisEducated: How I Lost My Voice (The Root Edition) is the story of Betty, a young brown-skinned girl growing up on the south side of Chicago. Around the age of 5, her parents separated and so ended Betty’s relationship with her father.

Betty and her eight other siblings moved from their private home to public housing projects. They were quickly exposed to poverty, violence, oppression, and inequality. As a result, Betty bravely shares her journey on the miseducation of how she lost her voice.

Bravely MisEducated: How I Lost My Voice (The Root Edition) comes in paperback and ebook form.

Finishing Touch Flawless Women’s Hair Remover

Finishing Touch Flawless Women’s Hair Remover is affordable, discreet, portable, battery-operated, and painless. The most irritating area on my body is the fuzz on my chin. With over $600 in laser hair removal treatment and several sessions just for it to possibly reappear, that wasn’t an option for me.

I was also tired of going to the nail salon paying $10 every two weeks for waxing treatment and constantly telling the stylist, to not wax the other parts of my body hair. After I saw this product on TV one evening, I immediately searched on Amazon to purchase this item. It was a few dollars cheaper than the retail price and I was able to receive it within a couple days using Prime shipping.

Before I purchased this hair remover, it seemed too good to be true, dermatologist approved, and I can take it anywhere with me in case I forget to use it first thing in the morning. My chin is now smooth again, and I no longer have to try to pluck my hair and still leave the sharp roots.

Skin Fade Cream

Skin Fade Cream for all skin types, fades dark spots, even skin tones, and other skin discolorations. After using my portable hair remover, dark spots appeared I began to become discouraged.

A friend a mine suggested I use fade cream because she has used it for over several months to even her skin tone and scars throughout her body. The fade cream helps removes the dark spots on my skin and other areas on my face that was discolored from previous sun exposure. My face is becoming clearer and my confidence has increased.

Firestick with Alexa

Firestick with Alexa all you need is a Wi-Fi connection, no satellite, no cable, and it comes with a remote. You can access and stream thousands of movies, episodes and live sports.

I don’t watch television often but when I do, there are a few shows I generally like to see that I consider therapeutic and relaxing, and most of them are on one to two channels. If I wanted to see the two channels with all the shows I enjoyed, I  would have had to purchase a larger package from the satellite company. That would have been $30 extra dollars a month versus the one-time fee of the Firestick.

Waterless, oil diffuser, aroma, mist humidifier

Waterless, oil diffuser, aroma, mist humidifier has 100% pure essential oils. It helps eliminates dry chapped skin and lips and sinuses.

Braving the Wilderness by Brene Brown

Braving the Wilderness: Reading is one of my favorite ways to meditate and relieve stress. Actually, I listen to the audio reading of this book a few a times a week as it keeps me focused on remaining youthfully.

“Brave the Wilderness of uncertainty, vulnerability, and criticism. What is your true belonging? Having to find the courage to stand alone. Once we belong thoroughly to ourselves and believe thoroughly in ourselves true belongings is ourselves. Be vulnerable. Get comfortable. Be present with people without sacrificing who you are”

Fitness Tracker

I love the LETSCOM Fitness Tracker, also known as ‘my accountability partner’. This watch helps me all-day track my daily activities from my sleep, heart rate, movement and more.

As I walk every day to my car, running errands, school, or even to the bathroom, wearing the Fitness Tracker will track every step to help me convert the calories I burn. After I set my minimum goal of 10,000, the Fitbit will remind me to stay active throughout the day with a vibration to my wrist to encourage me to take a few more steps to help reach my goal.

The battery life lasts up to 3-5 days before you need to charge it and it takes less than an hour for a full charge.

I have sleep insomnia and many times I struggle with telling my physician how many hours of sleep I get because I wake up so often and by the time I’m up for the day I’m exhausted. It’s difficult for my doctor to find the perfect treatment for me if I’m unable to provide specific information to her. By viewing my dashboard within the app, I’m able to tell my doctor the exact time I fell asleep, when I woke up, and how many times I awaken in the middle of the night. This helps me understand my sleep quality and assist my physician on the right treatment to keep me healthy.

I also join fitness challenges with friends through Fitness Tracker and I can sync other fitness tracking apps with mine to help support others who use other fitness brands.
