When I finished college years ago it was time to head out on interviews. While I was hoping to get interviews for companies in the suburbs, that didn’t always happen. 90 percent of my interviews were in the city about 50 miles away, which was an hour by train.

Beauty Brite Disclosure

Are you looking for ways to take your mind off of a bad day or to de-stress from a long work week? A great way to relax is by coloring in an adult coloring book. Before you start snickering or rolling your eyes, it’s true! Not only is coloring fun, think back to your days as a kid, it’s a perfect way to relieve stress. Mindware® offers a truly unique adult coloring book that I am currently enjoying along with a wide array of colored pencils.

I started using adult coloring books two years ago when I found out my dad had lung cancer. I needed something to help take my mind off of things, and working on a jigsaw puzzle wasn’t working. I went to Barnes & Noble to walk around and I saw a stand of adult coloring books. I browsed through them and found a few that I really liked. Within a week or two I was obsessed, and it was a great distraction…. [read more]

Letters From Paris: Introspection and Mystery in the City of Love

Letters From Paris by Juliet Blackwell

Beauty Brite Disclosure

When I first saw the book Letters from Paris, I was not incredibly excited. The book’s cover is beautiful, and it is written by bestselling author Juliet Blackwell, but the word ‘Paris’ instantly made me apprehensive. After all, there are many books about Paris that involve a woman’s self-discovery (and romance) whilst visiting the French city; what would make this one different?

After all, romance novels are not usually listed among the world’s most esteemed pieces of literature (even though they can tell us a lot about different cultures’ romantic ideals), and several of them certainly do lack quality writing or unique plot elements. But I love them anyway, whether they’re historical Westerns or simplistic contemporary novels–and I’m certainly not the only one who does–so I was thrilled to receive an Advance Reading Copy of Denise Grover Swank’s new book Only You as a reviewer!… [read more]

In the fall, he will be starting Kindergarten within the school district where we live. These changes are a lot to absorb for such a little guy. I know he’s apprehensive about a new school, different teacher, and unfamiliar classmates.
