Written for the modern pregnant Black woman, Oh Sis, You’re Pregnant! is the essential what to expect when you're expecting guide to understanding pregnancy from a millennial Black mom’s point of view.

Interviews, stories, and advice for pregnant women. Written by Black Moms Blog founder, Shanicia Boswell, Oh Sis, You’re Pregnant! tackles hard topics in a way that truly resonate with modern Black moms. With stories from her experiences through pregnancy, labor, and motherhood, and lessons learned as a mother at twenty-two, Oh Sis, You’re Pregnant! focuses on the common knowledge Black pregnant mothers should consider when having their first baby. It also shares topics beneficial to pregnant Black women on their second, third, or fourth born.

Inside you’ll find answers to questions like, how:

  • Do I financially plan for my birth?
  • Can I maintain my relationship and friendships during motherhood?
  • Will I self-advocate for my rights in a world that already views me as less than?

Why Smart People Make Bad Food Choices

Harness the Psychology of Food for a Healthy Lifestyle

“...essential read for those of us trying to understand the mysteries behind the food choices and eating habits of today's consumer.” —Stephen M Ostroff, MD, former deputy commissioner, Foods and Veterinary Medicine, FDA

Author and CEO Jack Bobo is a food psychology expert with over 20 years advising four U. S. Secretaries of State on food and agriculture. He’s here to personally guide you on smarter food choices and improving your quality of life.

Elusive healthy lifestyle. We have access to more nutrition facts and diet plans now than ever before. Consumers have never known more about nutrition and yet, have never been more overweight. For most Americans, maintaining a balanced diet is more difficult than doing their taxes. What are we doing wrong?

Learn to eat better. Jack Bobo reveals how the psychology of food has been invisibly controlling us all along, in the grocery aisles, at restaurants, in front of the refrigerator, and in every other place we make crucial food choices. Behavioral science is changing the way we think about food and showing us how to develop healthy meal plans and deliver more balanced diets.

Apply behavioral science to your diet plan. A balanced diet creates a healthy lifestyle routine and better quality of life. You can move beyond fad diets, pop science, and calls for ever greater willpower. Explore the deeper causes of hidden influences and mental shortcuts our minds use to process information and how they often prevent us from healthy eating habits.

Why Smart People Make Bad Food Choices helps you:

  • Understand the psychology behind hidden influences
  • Make better decisions that lead toward a healthy diet
  • Fear less and enjoy more the food you eat
  • Become a positive force for the diets of those around you

Take Your Skin to the Next Level with This Guide to Korean Skin Care

“This book feels like talking with a trusted friend, one so generous with practical advice and wisdom. I wish our Dermatology textbooks had chapters like these!” —Dr. Erin Tababa-Santos, creator of The Nerdy Derma

#1 New Release in Massage and Skin Ailments

Have you always longed for that fresh, glowing, no-makeup look? With this step-by-step guide to Korean skincare routines, anyone can attain healthy skin. But Skincare for Your Soul takes it one step further―it guides you to a place where skincare is also self-care.

The Korean skin care journey. As much as we’d like, glowing, clear skin doesn’t happen overnight. But there is beauty in the process―not just the results. Author Jude Chao links skincare to self-care culture, giving readers a practical guide to developing an ideal skincare routine and using it to help manage stress, anxiety, and depression. The Korean skincare routine invites us to look at our skincare not only as a way to reduce lines and wrinkles or clear up breakouts, but as a tool for developing our self-care habits.

Steady improvement is the goal. Photoshopped perfection is neither realistic nor a healthy goal. What matters is caring for our mental health and building our self-esteem by intentionally taking time each day to give our skin some love. But it starts with changing how we view skincare and developing a routine that fits our personal needs and goals, and Chao helps you do that.

Dive into Chao’s book on K-beauty and discover:

  • An easy-to-follow, step-by-step guide to skincare
  • A clear breakdown of skincare products (not brands), and pros and cons to help customize your routine
  • How Korean skin care can be a reliable and effective mental health management tool
  • Tips for avoiding common types of exploitative and manipulative beauty marketing

You Can Get Unstuck

“This book is better than vitamins. It is a boost and thunderbolt.” —Sherry Richert Belul, founder of Simply Celebrate and author of Say It Now

When author and podcaster Polly Campbell got tired of her hoodie smelling like pizza and her days being clouded by midlife over-exhaustion, emotional burnout, and boredom, she decided to get off the couch and reclaim her core energy. But could this burned-out, chronically ill, middle-aged mother of a teen rediscover her vitality? Yes. And so can you.

Small Steps, Big Energy. Self-help books for women often encourage you to throw out the life you’re living and create a fresh start. You, Recharged isn’t about that. You don’t have to quit your mundane job, cut out cocktails, or sign-off of social media to recharge. Instead, Polly Campbell’s inspirational book is about adding things in―good habits, practices, fun, people, activities, self-care strategies―that ignite your essential energy.

Discover the small but meaningful ways you can feel happier, healthier, and more alive. When we align with the things that matter to us and allow the “why” to guide us, we are energized. Sure, there are challenges, setbacks, and plenty of things that piss us off, but they don’t have to deplete us. They don’t have to leave us mentally exhausted or take our power. Instead, our energy can be refocused and redirected into things that we value. 

In this personal development book, find:

  • Easy-to-apply, practical strategies to ease stress, boost energy, and improve health and well-being
  • Short chapters, delivered in a relatable, conversational tone, with plenty of humor
  • Hope and inspiration, so you know that you can also create a meaningful, satisfying life no matter how stuck, lost, bored, and physically exhausted you feel

If you were inspired by motivational books and self-help books like Own Your EverydayHow to Stop Feeling Like Sh*t, or The Self-Love Experiment, then you’ll love You, Recharged.
