Book Review : Working Girl By A.E.Woodward

My Review: When I started reading Working Girl, I said to myself that I was not going to get all caught up and worked up reading this book. I told myself that this time I would remain calm and not have a repeat of the reactions and sentiments that I did last time while reading A. E. Woodward’s other book Kismet. Well let me tell you folks that I failed miserably.

I could not help but get caught up in Pressely’s world. I felt sadness and desperation. I felt anxious but hopeful and the roller coaster of emotions went through me once again. The way A.E. Woodward writes, makes you feel it right to the bone. She doesn’t sugarcoat anything and when you think certain things can’t be possible or you feel hopeful…BAM she throws a curveball or two that you never saw Coming!!!!

Sure you get the feeling of butterflies when you read about Pressley and how she likes this boy named Emerson. You feel even better when Emerson feels something for Pressley too. Everything seems like despite circumstances things can be different that what seems destined to be … But can it really? Is Love enough to change the way you grew up ?

I am thoroughly impressed and mesmerized by A.E.Woodward. She has become one of my favorite authors and whose books I would buy without thinking twice. I know she will deliver the feeling of rainbows and butterflies and skittles while swiftly kicking me in the gut when I least expect it!! If you ever want a book that will reach out and touch you and leave you with quite an impression get A.E. Woodward’s books. Start off With Working Girl and when you feel brave enough pick up Kismet!! Trust me you will never be the same after reading A.E. Woodward’s books!!

Review: Dermagist skin tone correcting system


I am getting older and I hate to say it, but my skin isn’t as youthful looking as it once was. I have gotten sun spots and all kinds of blemishes on my face. My skin tone has become uneven and what person likes having uneven skin tone? I try and keep trying all kind of products to keep my skin looking good but I don’t always get the result I want.
I was given the opportunity to try out some skin care products and I chose the Dermagist skin tone correcting system. I chose the skin correcting system because I wanted to get rid of the blemishes and dark spots on my face. The Dermagist skin tone correcting system is a two-part system that targets spots, discoloration and dull, uneven skin tone. Step one accelerates the process by deeply exfoliating dead, dull skin cells. Step two penetrates to help brighten, and even the tone of the skin.

I tried it out for close to a month and I could see some of the freckles I had fading away. My face seems brighter and my skin tone is more even. Having uneven skin tone bothered me even more than the freckles did. You can call me a little vain if you want, but I want to make sure my face looks as youthful as possible for as long as possible. If you don’t have a skin tone problem but want a younger looking face or are just looking for face products I would check out reviews and see what others have to say about the skin products you are thinking of buying. I know it helped me out to make the decision of what kind of face product I wanted or needed to use on my face. I am quite happy with the results I got from using the Dermagist skin tone correcting system and I am so glad I looked at the reviews before making my decision.

Review: Cleopatra’s choice raw shea butter #adovia

Cleopatra choice

One of my daughters suffers from eczema and every now and then has outbreaks where she cant stop the itching and scratching. I tend to have dry skin and am constantly putting on different kinds of moisturizing lotion to keep my skin soft. Some lotions work better than others but I have to constantly make sure that I am putting some on.

I recently had the opportunity to try out Cleopatra’s choice raw shea butter and when I found out that Raw Shea Butter has been proven to provide natural relief from symptoms of Very Dry Skin, Psoriasis Dryness and Eczema I was all for it . This shea butter is 100% Natural and Organic Pure Shea Butter – Made with Hand Selected Finest Nuts of the Shea Tree in Ghana. The shea butter came in a tub with a resealable lid, which is a great idea since you will have plenty to use. Although it looks thick and waxy ,after putting some in my hand and rubbing it together it became soft and I was able to easily rub it on my arms and legs. I also used some as lip balm and it kept me moisturized all day.

I put some on my daughter the day her eczema was acting up and I didn’t see her scratching like she normally does. I saw her eczema clearing up instead of the usual raw skin she has for days when the cream I put on her doesn’t work. Although my daughter doesn’t like that this shea butter doesn’t have a sweet smell to it, I find it perfect for her because it helps out her skin a lot. I like that I can put a little bit of essential oil and give it a vanilla smell and it is great for me to use all day. This shea butter is great to mix with any scent you want if you don’t like the slightly nutty woodsy scent it naturally has.

I am so glad to have had the opportunity to try out Cleopatra’s choice raw shea butter.

I received one or more of the products mentioned above for free using Regardless, I only recommend products or services I use personally and believe will be good for my readers.

Birthday preparations will be underway

September is here and that means it’s time for me to plan another party. My preteen will officially be a teenager and like all teenagers she wants a party with a DJ and all kinds of friends over. If I lived on the east coast it would be no problem. I could just look up a charleston sc dj and have my choice to pick but unfortunately we live in a small town. As much as I would like to get her a DJ I think she is going to have to settle for some music from the computer or whatever music her older sister has on the ipod.

I would love nothing more than a little party with close family and friends. My daughter of course wants a big huge party. I think we are going to have to find a way to compromise. One thing for sure I know she will not budge is what cake she wants. I would love nothing more than a Bavarian cake or tres leches cake but I know she is probably going to pick a cake that I will find either too sweet or with butter cream which I don’t like. I prefer whipped cream topping on the cake but it wont be my birthday so I am out of luck.
