Haute Reading List!

Divanomics by Michelle McKinney Hammond

Sometimes a fashionista has to learn all about money the hard way… trial and error. But with every lesson learned comes an opportunity to grow, at least that’s what I learned reading Michelle McKinney Hammond’s new book, Divanomics.

After her five star lifestyle went south thanks to a bad economy, Hammond, a self proclaimed DIVA (Divine Inspiration for Victorious Attitude), confronted her worst nightmare, a life without designer clothes, expensive meals and high-end luxury goods that turns out were not that essential afterall. Now that the worst is over, Hammonds has responded by going from fabulous and fly to “Fabulously Frugal!”
Divanomics is honest, humorous and helpful for those on a similar course of self-destruction. Hammonds offers tips, practical advice and commonsense money management strategies on how to take control of your finances and your sanity! The book also offers money-saving tips when it comes to fashion, beauty, home décor, entertaining, real estate and so much more.

We can all learn from Hammond’s mistakes and a few of our own. Get your copy of Divanomics today for just $9.35 on

A Walk For Sunshine by Jeff Alt

You may remember Jeff Alt from CNN-Radio, ESPN, the Hallmark Channel and USA Radio Network. He’s also the award-winning author of A Walk For Sunshine. In his new book, he takes us along his 2,160 mile expedition for charity on the Appalachian Trail. His incredible journey is filled with humor, frightening and inspirational stories about his life in the woods for 147 days. Alt’s story has inspired an annual fundraiser, which has raised over $160,000 for Sunshine Home, where his younger brother Aaron, who has cerebral palsy, lives.
Alt’s story about his quest to hike the entire length of the Appalachian Trail is simply amazing. Get your copy of A Walk for Sunshine today for an inspirational journey about following your dreams!
