Wedding Wednesday

The ring. One of the exciting parts about the material aspects of being engaged is the ring? Am I right? It’s also one of those things that us ladies tend to be very picky about.  Should the guy surprise us with whatever he picks out, should we go together to look at what we like… READ MORE »

Kindle Select Did Boost My Sales

I have not been a fan of Kindle Select. Not because it’s not a good marketing tool but I’ve just had a bit of an issue personally with being exclusive to Amazon. If you don’t know what Kindle Select is read this post from Jane Friedman’s site. I admit, I sell 3 times more on… READ MORE »

Green Bean Delivery has Sexy Rutabaga!

I know what you’re probably thinking. I’ve lost my mind by thinking that rutabaga is sexy. I mean it’s a vegetable, right? And as far as vegetables go it’s not one of those more popular. I wouldn’t even be talking about rutabaga if it weren’t for Green Bean Delivery sending me a container to try…. READ MORE »

Netflix Junky

I admit that in the last couple years, after discovering instant streaming on Netflix, I have become a bit addicted to watching several years worth of episodes at a time. Not having the week break between episodes can make me lose track of what is really happening and what is in my current show. Ok,… READ MORE »

School Lockers

When I was in middle school I did enjoy a good brown paper bag book cover but I did not have an entire theme for decorating my locker. Either I completely missed the trend or it didn’t exist in the 80’s. I would like to think it didn’t exist. I mean surely I would have… READ MORE »

Why choose soy candles over regular candles?

Recently, they have become increasingly popular with candle-makers because the ingredients to make them are much more accessible, they are less harmful to the environment and the candles themselves burn longer than traditionally-made candles.
