This time of the year it feels like I never stop running!  Sometimes it is nice to take a bit of time for yourself.  That is why I really like the products I have gotten from ToGoSpa®.  ToGoSpa® is the company we love for creating a luxury at home spa experience with their moisture packed collagen gel pads for your face, eyes and neck. Now they have come out with a BRAND NEW mask- ToGoSpa® presents, Coconut Lips!

The coconut lips by ToGoSpa® are micro-infused with collagen gel masks with hyaluronic acid, vitamins C & E that work to moisturize, plump and re-hydrate thinning lips creating a more full and moisturized appearance.

They are easy to use and help keep your lip looks soft.  If you have dry, chapped lips these are perfect for you!  You just open the packet apply to lips and leave on for 15-20 minutes.  Remove the packets from your lips and discard. Your lips will look kissable!  They are great in the summer or winter. If you want a really refreshing treat – chill them before you use them.  With the coconut aroma you will feel relaxed and transported to the tropics!

I also tried the EYES by ToGoSpa®.  You can soothe, plump and hydrate your under eyes in just one 20 minute treatment.  Last weekend I spent visiting my family in Wisconsin – I had lots of late nights, lots of food and drinks – and along with that some dark circles under my eyes.  Monday when I got home I used my Green Tea EYES – it contains super anti-oxidant green tea to help combat those dark circles.  It kind of tingled and had a nice calming scent.  Same as with the lips – it is a 20 minute treatment.

I loved both the lip and eye treatments from ToGoSpa® and recommend them for you or your friends!  They would be great to put into someone Christmas stocking along with any of the products from ToGoSpa®.  Everyone loves to feel pampered. You can purchase all of the products HERE or even find them at local salons.

trust-my-heartTrust My Heart (Waterfall Press, October 2016)

Grant McAllister arrives in Murphy, North Carolina, with one aim: to sell his inherited property and leave as quickly as possible.

The big-city lawyer has no interest in his late, estranged grandparents or the dilapidated mansion he just acquired. After his high-profile divorce, he should be avoiding perky reporters, too. But Jami Carlisle is honest, funny, and undeniably appealing.

After breaking up with her safe-but-smothering boyfriend, Jami is determined to ace her first big assignment. A story about the McAllister estate is too intriguing to ignore—much like its handsome, commitment-phobic heir. Thanks to her digging, the pieces of Grant’s fraught family history are gradually fitting into place, but also upending all his old beliefs.

The two draw closer as they share their dreams, until misread signals and misunderstandings begin to test their trust. But in the unspoiled beauty of the Smoky Mountains, there’s healing and forgiveness to be found. And for Grant, this unplanned detour may be just what’s needed to finally guide him home…

cpost-405About the Author:

From medical secretary to court reporter to property manager to owner of a special-events decorating company, Carol J. Post’s résumé reads as if she hasn’t yet decided what she wants to be when she grows up. But one thing that has remained constant through the years is her love of writing. She started as a child composing poetry for family and friends, then graduated to articles for religious and children’s publications. Now she pens fun, fast-paced inspirational romance and romantic suspense stories. Her books have been nominated for an RT Reviewers’ Choice Best Book award and selected as an RT Top Pick. When Carol isn’t writing, she enjoys sailing, hiking, camping—almost anything outdoors. She also plays the piano and sings with her music-minister husband. Their two grown daughters and their grandkids live too far away for her liking, so she now pours all her nurturing into taking care of a fat and sassy black cat and a highly spoiled dachshund.

I always like to read books by authors that are new to me.  When I read the synopsis I thought this would be a good book to read.  I found that Trust My heart was a sweet romance. I liked that it was light and fast to read.  The town was well described and made me feel like I wanted to be part of it.  I think this would be a book many people would enjoy.

Do you want to feel good about the way you look?  I do!  That is why I was excited to try Euphorie’s Platinum Infused Lifting & Firming Eye Serum.  I am in my 50’s and when I look in the mirror I was seeing wrinkles and black circles under and around my eyes.

Euphorie’s Platinum Infused Lifting & Firming Eye Serum is a luxurious eye serum  good for lifting and firming the skin around your eyes.  It helps reduce puffiness, the black circles and wrinkles by deeply hydrating and nourishing your skin.  It has vitamins A and C, green tea, aloe vera, collagen and platinum in it.  It helps instantly removes signs of fatigue from your eyes and with extended use will help ease away the wrinkles. The state-of-the-art  anti-aging science to turn back the clock, the innovators behind Euphorie implemented collagen into their products in order to achieve rejuvenated, healthy skin like never before.

Euphorie’s glamorous packaging is just as chic and sophisticated as the inner workings of it’s formula. The cosmetics are presented in dazzling bottles in an array of eye-catching designs, which are symphonic with its luxe theme. The packaging exudes indulgence so much so that it can also serve as a statement vanity piece. Each plush box of Euphorie cosmetics is fashioned with velvet both on the outside and the inseams.

I liked how luxurious the serum feels. It is thick and soaks into my skin.  It is easy to use just put on your finger tips and gentle work into the skin from corner to inner corner of your eye.  I use it morning and  night.

Euphorie’s Platinum Infused Lifting & Firming Eye Serum will be great to use when you have a late night during the holidays.  Euphorie has a whole line of great products that will make you feel and look fantastic.

In Disney Palace Pets Art Studio ($26.99; ISBN: 978-1626865402; 128 pages), you’ll love drawing and painting these 19 adorable Palace Pets adopted by the Disney Princesses. The detailed, 128-page project book will teach you how to illustrate them like a professional, then use the included 3 watercolor paints, 2 paintbrushes, palette, drawing pencil, 7 colored pencils, fine-line marker, kneaded eraser, and sharpener to bring them into full color. Once you’ve mastered the techniques, create beautiful artwork for children’s parties and fun surprises for your loved ones’ lunchboxes, or just draw them to relax and have an adorable piece of art to show off! Ponies, bunnies, birds, and even wildlife pets join the playful puppies and kittens loved by the Disney Princesses. You’ll love them, too! Get started now and let your imagination run wild.

I think it makes drawing easier – when it gives you the step by step instructions.  I am not very good at drawing but with these steps I should be able to do a pretty good job.

img_0892

Then after drawing these cute little animals you can color them with water color or colored pencils.

img_0906

Here is another great kit – it is the in Disney Art Studio ($26.99; ISBN: 978-1626865372, 128 pages) Snow White, Cinderella, the Little Mermaid, Winnie the Pooh, Mickey Mouse, and many more of your favorite characters leap off the page with your drawing and painting skills!

Included in the kit are 3 watercolor paints, 2 paintbrushes, a palette, a drawing pencil, 7 colored pencils, a fine-line marker, a kneaded eraser, a sharpener, and a 128-page project book to bring these characters to life! I like the book that comes with the kit – it has so many helpful hints and tips.

I think this is one of my favorite things this holiday.  It would be great for adults who like to do art journals, doodle and draw. It is also great for someone who is just starting to draw.  If you would like to purchase either the  Disney Art Studio or the Disney Palace Pets Art Studio you can find them at Thunder Bay Press or locally at stores like Target or Walmart.

One of my favorite times of the year is fall.  I find that it is a time where family and friends get together for a cup of coffee or tea and enjoy each other company. Some of my favorite memories are Sundays after Church at my Mom’s.  I come from a big family so it is hard to keep track of everyone – but most Sunday’s you can still find the family getting together.

This is a sponsored post.  All opinions expressed in this post are 100% mine.

It is time to get dinner and you are looking for a place to deliver food but you want to get the best price.  If you live in Chicago you can use Bootler.  Bootler is a search engine for delivery food.  They work with 6 different delivery services allowing users to pick a restaurant and compare prices, availability and delivery time saving their users time and money. They are not the delivery company. They only bring together other delivery companies and then redirect you to their website.

pizza

At my house Friday night is always no cook Friday – so we a lot of times order pizza – this site would be very helpful for us. The nice thing is that it gives you the delivery fee, order minimum and estimated time for delivery. You can also view the menu from Bootler – which would be really helpful to me. One option that looked good to me was Coal Fire Pizza Delivery for our Friday night pizza.

The way Bootler works is – You search and pick out whatever you are in the mood for.  Pick the restaurant you want to have deliver your meal.  Build your order from the restaurant menu. Then you can compare and select the different delivery companies’ prices.  Then you pick the one you want.  Using Bootler you can compare American, Sandwich, Chinese, Mexican and Pizza options.

Right now Bootler is available in Chicago only but it is expected to be available in New York City by the end of the year and more places after that.  It has about 100,000 visitors a month and 2,000 people daily ordering from their services.   Be sure to follow Bootler on Twitter and Facebook for more information and watch for it to be available in the city you live.

Can you believe that the holidays are right around the corner?  I am always looking for gifts to give Rex for his birthday in November and then Christmas in December.  I wanted to find a fragrance that reflects his personality.  I think I have two winners here to help him smelling good. They both smell fresh.

Lacoste Pour Homme ($22.99 at Fragrance.com) – Edgy notes of cinnamon, juniper and plum make Lacoste Pour Homme the ideal fragrance for the sophisticated guy. The wearer is most likely to succeed, but still knows how to have a good time. Its notes consist of cinnamon, apple, juniper, plum, and woods.

Guess Seductive Homme by Guess ($20.99 at Fragrance.com) – This fragrance is intended for a charming, charismatic and magnetic gentleman. It is a crisp fragrance that gives off a woodsy and musky scent—mixed with a hint of black pepper—it’ll make your masculinity go up a solid 10 points.

Not only can you find these at Fragrance.com but they have 100’s of them.  You can find fragrances for everyone on your list all in one place.  I love being able to order online and have it shipped directly to me.

Happy National Pizza Month!!  Rex and I often have pizza on no cook Friday.  When you think of pizza what is one of your favorite places to go?  One place I think of  is California Pizza Kitchen.  They have a good variety of hand tossed pizza’s including one of my favorites the Original BBQ Chicken Pizza.  In addition to the amazing classic pizzas, salads and pastas on their menu, CPK has introduced their New Chapter featuring a fresh modern look to their restaurants, along with their new, upscale items on their menu.  I was invited to visit and check out what was new.  This location is in Happy Valley, Oregon.

The above picture is of the open kitchen were you can see the chefs make your meals.  You see the chairs in the front?  Kids can sit there and watch the chefs toss the pizza dough and if they want they can toss their own dough!

I went with my friend Joanna on Sunday and we had such a great time trying a number of great items.  We had an amazing time – from when we walked in the door and were greeted by Suzanne the general manager until we left. Lindsay our waitress was very helpful and helped us decide what to start with – we ordered a Sangria flight – it had three 3oz pours of the Orchard, Red-Berry and one other Sangria that I don’t recall the name of.  I have tried flights of wine or beer never Sangria.  I loved them all!  I would go in CPK just for the Sangria it was that good. My favorite of the three was the Red-Berry Sangria – it had a couple of fresh blueberries in it. The Sangria changes with the season.

img_0872

Next came the fresh bread with some olive oil dipping sauce.  Look at all the great seasoning in the oil!

img_0871

Here is the Shaved Mushroom and Spinach Flatbread.  It has cremini mushrooms, sauteed spinach, olive oil, Romano and Parmesan cheese on it.  The crust was nice and crispy.

img_0873

Next we had the Avocado Club Egg Rolls – don’t they look great?  They came with two great sauces – house made herb ranch and then a bit spicier ranchito sauce.

img_0876

Here was my meal – Hearth Roasted Halibut – it was roasted on a cedar plank and served on a bed of butternut squash farro, baby kale and grilled asparagus.  I have never had farro and I think the butternut squash farro was my favorite part of the meal although everything was cooked good and tasted great!

img_0875

This was Joanna’s meal – Fire-Grilled Ribeye – doesn’t it look great?  It came with a creamy bleu cheese butter, roasted potatoes and a salad dressed in a lemon garlic dressing.  Look how big both portions were – we both took some home with us!

We were also talked into having a piece of pumpkin cheesecake that we split – it was so good!

During our visit Suzanne checked on us and told us a lot about CPK – they sound like a good company to work for.  They have helped a lot of people by granting wishes through Make-A-Wish program and have other charitable causes that they work with.  Suzanne told us that some of their customers have been coming in for years.  I can see why; the food is good but the people are what make it a really special place.  I can’t wait to go back!
