About the Event

Dr. Sagashus Levingston (founder of Infamous Mothers, LLC) will be here to talk with us about her new book Covet - the "Disrespectful" Health and Wellness Journal - Volume One. 

Covet invites you to unapologetically bring sass, attitude, and edge to the world of personal reflection. If the cover and title haven’t yet convinced you that this series is untraditional and meant to expand the face and voice of health and wellness, the content will. It is a robust, guided, three-month journal that invites you to check in with your entire self—self-confidence, self-value, goals, habits, and more. Created for women by women. We just scheduled this yesterday, so visit our website tomorrow for details about signing up for the event.
