Of course a great pair of heels will make any women feel confident in herself. Standards in Stilletos is a collection of Jazmin's blog articles and encouraging quotes. The articles promote female empowerment, self-love, respect for ourselves as women, and never allowing yourself to be disrespected. The articles put things in to perspective for women everywhere on how they can build up their self-esteem and happiness. The articles also touch on relationships and how women should refrain from selling themselves a dream by lowering standards or creating standards that are too high. The book illistrates that relationships require hard work, determination, and respect on all levels. In order for women to be able to love, they must find the love for themselves.

Innocent until proven guilty or guilty until proven innocent? D. Corbett Everidge cannot vote, own a firearm, or hold public office: he is a convicted felon. But did he actually commit the crime? In this true-life legal drama, former magistrate D. Corbett Everidge chronicles the events of the summer of 2005 and the ensuing criminal trial that led to a felony conviction and the end of his criminal justice career. He then asks you to assess the evidence and make your own reasonable decision about whether he is, indeed, innocent or guilty as charged. Everidge gives personal insight into his career and background to illustrate that guilt in a complex society is not always a matter of black and white. He also challenges many beliefs regarding the modern criminal justice system in the United States, effectively drawing a line between the theoretical and the actual. Ultimately, Guilty Until Proven Innocent is an intriguing literary criminal trial in which you decide the outcome. Ladies and gentlemen of the jury, what is your verdict?
