If you regularly scroll through Instagram, you’ve probably contemplated buying something random. If you spotted a colorful portable blender and thought, “OMG, I need it,” this BlendJet review is for you (you’re welcome).

We still aren’t ready to commit to head-to-toe ~real clothes~, but we’re getting there! Not to mention accessorizing our dressed-down looks to the max to balance the lack of effort.

That’s why this collection just makes so much sense right now. Coach x Champion features tees, hoodies, joggers and of course, some gorgeous handbags, all of which can be worked into a “dressed-down, but still chic” 2021 fashion aesthetic with

11 Fiction Books About Black Joy You Need To Read Now

The last year has been particularly taxing for Black folk. Not only have we been dealing with coronavirus disproportionately impacting our community, we’ve also been reliving racial trauma following the death of George Floyd and subsequent Black Lives Matter protests. Black people have suffered but as 22-year-old inaugural poet Amanda Gorman notes, “even as we hurt, we grew.” As we settle into a new year, ‘joy’ is the word we’re focusing on and that means reading stories which uplift, inspire and make us feel proud of being Black.There are plenty of novels that delve into the effects of systemic and historic racism on people’s lives and which are important for us all to read and learn from – but it’s also imperative to read stories that uplift Black people and show us winning. Ahead is a
