My honest review of “Whiskey in a Teacup” and the Reese Witherspoon Book tour. One thing I can say about Reese, she’s the definition of whiskey in a teacup.
Whiskey In A Teacup: Attending Reese Witherspoon’s Book Tour
If you live on planet earth, I am sure you have seen Reese Witherspoon in a movie, or two, or maybe all of them. Have you ever wondered if her real persona was like any of her characters? Well, IT IS. She is the epitome of her book title “Whiskey in a Teacup: What Growing Up in the South Taught Me About Life, Love, and Baking Biscuits.” She is what my grandmother would call, a firecracker. She truly does light up a room, and fill it with laughter, positivity and spunk.
Just this weekend she made her way to the good ol’ South, touring several big southern cities, promoting her new book. I was lucky enough to attend this event, that embraced southern hospitality, while also empowering women to take on their dreams.

In spite of that, I like Reese Witherspoon. First, I like how she is down-to-earth. Second, I like how she has really strong family values. But one of the biggest things I like about her, is how she encourages women to be power-driven and leaders, but also to be “WOMEN”.
For this reason, I was very intrigued when I found out she was going on a book tour near me. Ticket’s sold out fast, very fast. The book didn’t even go on sale until one day before the tour started. I was itching to buy it, because I wanted to read it before seeing her, but I waited because a copy of the book was included with everyone’s ticket. [Read more…]
