On Friday I had my most Carrie Bradshaw moment of all times. Sex and the City is one of my favorite movies, and I’ve seen every single episode and the movies a million times. Don’t keep sweaters in my oven like her but I am a writer. Carrie is a writer in love with fashion and love. She has her girl tribe and tramps around the city looking for inspiration on her next article. Duh… that totally sounds like me.
Empathy and Eyebrows: A Survivalist’s Stories on Reviving Your Spirit After Soul-Crushing Sh*tstorms
Between her time as a radio host, television figure, and social media personality, Danni Starr has never been afraid of sharing her opinion. In this book, she takes you on a whirlwind tour of her own life and beyond, with plenty of personal perspective and #BlackGirlMagic to go around.
The book is available for pre-order now and releases on October 16th.
Danni Starr is an empath, national media personality, mental health advocate, and activist. The former Miss Minnesota International 2007 can be heard every morning on 93.9 WKYS and seen weekly on the TLC network as host of TLCme Now. She graduated magna cum laude in May 2008 with a communications degree from St. Catherine’s University in Minneapolis.
When she is not rendezvousing with radio, her first love (don’t tell Prince), and TV, her side-chick, Danni keeps herself busy with social advocacy and activism. She currently serves as an ambassador for the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services’ Office on Women’s Health. Besides being the best mom possible to her two daughters, Danni is all about sharing her #BlackGirlMagic
Backstory: I was first introduced to Danni Starr on Bridezilla in 2011. I then watched her on Marriage Boot-camp in about 2013/2014. From then I began to follow her on social media. I was thrilled to find out she moved to the DC area. Eventually, she and I would meet up at a DistrictMotherhued event. We hit it off instantly as if we were old friends. From there we would continue to run into one another at events and chat and take selfies. When I heard she was coming out with a book I had to interview her.
Our Carrie Bradshaw moment took place at a cute coffee shop downtown in Washington, DC. We sat at the bar along the window and took in the natural light from the sun. It was radiating all over our melanin as we chatted; we could chat all day.
