amazon.com, amazon.com

Promising review: "Absolutely love this dress! My boyfriend loved it too! I wore it a few times on my five-day trip to New Orleans last weekend. Because of where the buttons are, the fact that the chest ties and is, therefore, adjustable — the large fit me perfectly. I’m a curvy, 5’4", 177-180 lb. woman, cup size 38D. Loved not wearing a bra in this! Great material for heat and summer. Love the vibrant red color and can’t wait to wear it again!" —Monica R.

8. An entertaining and inspirational book on how to use your inner powers to battle all the drama, toxins, and general BS you have to deal with on the regular.

Promising review: "Heads up, witches, pagans, and Wiccans alike: THIS BOOK ISN'T INTENDED FOR YOU. Please do not be offended by the contents of this book. In the beginning chapters, the authors explicitly state that this book is not intended for witches. Could it provide some lovely inspiration for spells? Absolutely. Their 'spells' read more like meditations, which makes sense because it is essentially a self-help book formatted through the lens of witchcraft. Could this spark some curiosity and bring about a drive to learn more about witchcraft? Totally. Is this a witchcraft for beginners book? Hell no. It is entertaining and fun. Hell, even for actual witches, if you are in a slump this might be the pick me up you need. But it is definitely not an educational source for witchcraft, and it was never intended to be so. Pick this up if you want to smile. Not if you want to learn about different forms of witchcraft." —Mel H.Get it from Amazon for $10.99+, Barnes & Noble for $10.99+, or a local bookseller through IndieBound here.
