Review & Giveaway: The Recessionista by Alexandra Lebenthal

In a tale that is ripped from the headlines, a group of powerful New Yorkers suddenly encounter social upheaval, deception, and scandal. Some will find their way out of disaster while others, after making dangerous choices, dig their own graves. This story of expulsion from a modern-day Garden of Eden captures what happens when lives that were only designed to acquire more suddenly face the prospect of a great deal less.

This book kept me on the edge of my seat. It was hard to put done because
I never knew what to expect. Watch out Sex in the City!



Disclosure: I received this book for free and all thoughts expressed are 100% my own.

Review & Giveaway: She's Gone Country by Jane Porter

Jane Porter has returned with the type of bestselling novel that she writes best, featuring an almost-forty protagonist finding a second chance in life. SHE’S GONE COUNTRY is an entertaining
tale of a modern-day woman, Shey, who has led a charmed life in New
York City, gracing the covers of Vogue, and is now forced to reinvent
herself by moving back to her hometown in Texas after her marriage
falls apart. Shey soon realizes that in order to reinvent herself, she
must let go of an uncertain future and a broken past, and allow for the
possibility of new love in the present.


I was so engrossed in this story that I felt Shey's pain. She's the type of character that finds her way into your heart and you can't help but hope for her happily ever after.

Searching The Web

The other day, I was looking for kids costumes because my son loves to dress up as Buzz Lightyear and different superheroes. When I went to different search engines and each site brought up different links. I've noticed that sometimes it's really easy to find what you're looking for online and other times it's a pain.

You would think that different search engines would access the same websites but they don't. Now I try consulting my friends about which engine they use, so I will have better luck with my searches.

Buzz Lightyear


My son Damien LOVES Buzz Lightyear and today his auntie (my sister) came over with a Buzz Lightyear costume. He LOVED it! He took a nap in it and is still wearing it. He needed to go to the bathroom for 30 minutes but refused to take it off but he finally gave in. I put him on the potty and when he was finished he wanted it right back on. Hopefully the costume can make it to Halloween!

Review: Date Night

IN NEW YORK CITY, A CASE OF MISTAKEN IDENTITY TURNS A BORED MARRIED COUPLE'S ATTEMPT AT A GLAMOROUS AND ROMANTIC EVENING INTO SOMETHING MORE THRILLING AND DANGEROUS.

I went and saw this movie with my sister. I thought it would be funnier than it was but it wasn't a total disappointment. I liked that it showed how life is for a married couple with kids.
