“We’re Going to Need More Wine”- Gabrielle Union
Page count: 272pg
Gabrielle Union, one of Hollywood’s most brilliant, famous and refreshingly honest actresses bares
her soul and fearlessly shares her levels of insecurity and the difficulties of being a black woman in
the acting industry. She embraces many multi-layered issues in these intimate and thought
provoking essays, giving you glimpses of insight into her soul.
Union uses an astonishing amount of fearlessness to tell incredibly personal and true stories about
power, colour, gender, feminism, and fame. She also tackles a range of experiences, including
bullying, beauty standards, raising her “inherited” (step) children and competition between women.
Throughout, she maintains a balance between funny tales of self-actualisation and the pain and
sadness of experiencing multiple miscarriages and sexual assault. Gabrielle Union uses her voice to
compel us to be ethical and empathetic, and reminds us of the importance of confidence, self-
awareness, and the power of sharing truth, laughter, and support.
If you’ve never seen any of Gabrielle’s work, this book would be the best way to introduce yourself
to her. What a woman. WHAT. A. BOOK!
Delush Natural Sweet Red
While red wine is often an acquired taste, sweet red wines are a way to introduce the health benefits of red wine to those raised on sweeter flavours. The Delush Natural Sweet Red is particularly easy on the palette with packaging that’s equally easy on the eye. The grape is a deep red with caramel, butterscotch and berry undertones.
If you are looking for something that is easier to drink that’s also not as heavy on the pocket as a lot of reds on the market, this variety of red may be just for you.
