This week, I want to give a nod to some projects and blogs I think are really worthwhile and deserve more attention. Please click on the links below and check these out!
Brown Girl Magazine
The person who writes the “Dear Seema Aunty” column is a friend of mine, and really insightful. I believe the magazine targets young women of any ethnicity, in the way that the Human Condition makes all struggles relatable to all people.
This is a great online magazine that’s been around for maybe a year or so. I was published in it back in September, a brief personal narrative about my arranged marriage. Here’s the link to that: http://www.pluckmagazine.com/articles/article_jamail_01.php
Victoria Love’s New Album
Yeah, I know, you’ve heard about her on my blog before. There are two main reasons I’m passionate about this project: first, I love the music; second, Victoria Love is my sister. 🙂 Love’s Kickstarter page is up and taking pledges; they start at $1, and she’s offering great rewards. She also needs to raise a lot of money in the next few weeks for the project to be funded. Can she do it? Will it happen?? Ooh, it’s a nail-biter! 😉
Here’s the Kickstarter page: http://kck.st/twBUzl
And here’s the review I wrote of her EP: http://wp.me/p1MOqK-1q
You can hear some of her music on her website: http://www.victorialovemusic.com
Pass it on!
Soap. You Know, the Fancy Kind.
The tag line says it all: “Life’s dirty. Get Soapier.”
These little cakes of cleanliness are well-made and super fragrant, they lather beautifully and look even better next to your sink, and they make excellent gifts. Plus, they’re less expensive than fancy soaps in a boutique for the exact same product.
The website is not flashy and exciting, but the blog is current, and you can Like them on Facebook.
