1) Lean In: Women, Work, and the Will to Lead – MY FAVORITE BOOK. I know everyone has an opinion about this book, but mine is that it ROCKS. A lot of language that is now commonplace in our discussions about women’s right in the workplace, I heard for the FIRST time in this book. Sheryl will inspire you to go and LEAD a board meeting, raise your hand more, and have the assurance that even BOSS BABES like her have inner doubts sometimes too.
2) Iron Jawed Angels by HBO Studios by Various – MY FAVORITE MOVIE lol. But really. This is the story of how women ended up getting the vote in 1920… It’s a nail biter! They went through SO much and were true American heroes and yet you won’t ever hear about their toil in history class…. PLUS this movie stars Hilary Swank, Angelica Houston, AND Patrick Dempsey… FAVES! Be prepared to cry tears of joy that you can vote at the end!!
3) Kindle Paperwhite E-reader – White, 6″ High-Resolution Display – THIS is the boss babe kindle. Let’s be real. Sleek, polished, and professional. It’s cute and functional at the same time. Don’t get me wrong, I love a good paperback… But when it comes to VOLUME, you can take 19023847b books on a trip with you instead of 2. And this is a lot lighter in your purse!!! 😉
4) How Washington Actually Works For Dummies – THIS is a good read even if you already feel familiar with DC. It covers allll the basics and will remind you of why you fell in love with the Capitol all over again.
5) NPR Mug – BECAUSE if you’re a true political babe, this is accurate.
6) Essie nailpolish, Russian Roulette – MAKE THAT STATEMENT YO! Political babes have an opinion and you’d better believe they’re gonna voice it. Just like this color, we all up in yo face: bold, brave, and patriotic AF.
7) The Citizen’s Constitution: An Annotated Guide – KNOW YOUR RIGHTS! My dad has been giving us different versions of the constitution for Christmas since I don’t know when… He’s obsessed! But when you actually read it, you will be too. Our founding fathers were kinda visionary…
8) KeepCup Brew Glass Reusable Coffee Cup – Cuz if you’re gonna do all this reading, you’re gonna need some fuel! I love a glass reusable travel mug cuz a) no BPA b) it is better for the environment c) it cute..
9) “Killing it” graphic T crop top – Cuz if you’re playing the game, you’d better me KILLIN’ IT! And who doesn’t love a crop top for Sunday mornings in your sweats 🙂
10) Clear Lens frames – LOOK THE PART! Even if you don’t need glasses 😉 these frames are feminine and oh-so cute BUT they will give you a polished, professional look overall… It’s a win win!
