SOMEONE’S BOUND TO GET
BURNED…
Zoe Westin may be a fire captain’s daughter, but feeding the people in her hometown of Fairview is her
number one priority. Running a soup kitchen is also the perfect way to prove to her dad that helping people doesn’t always mean risking life and limb. But when she’s saddled with a gorgeous firefighter doing community service after yet another daredevil stunt, the kitchen has never been so hot.
Alex Donovan thrives on adrenaline, and stirring a pot of soup doesn’t exactly qualify. He’s not an expert at following the rules either, not even when they come from the stubborn, sexy daughter of the man who’s not only his boss, but his mentor. Determined to show Zoe that not every risk ends in catastrophe, Alex challenges her both in the kitchen and out. One reckless step leads to another, but will falling for each other be a risk worth taking, or will it just get them burned?

A little home improvement can go a
long way…
 
Jesse Oliver was a medic in Afghanistan, but back home in Pine Mountain he’s happy to
switch gears as the Double Shot bar’s new sous chef. When his apartment floods
and his old Army buddy offers the family’s dilapidated lake house as temporary
quarters, Jesse thinks a little remodeling on the creaky duplex sounds like a
fair return favor. That’s before he sets eyes on the gorgeous woman moving into
the other side of the cabin—and discovers she’s his buddy’s kid sister, a.k.a
totally off limits.
 
Kat McMarrin has fought hard for her space, and she’s not too interested in sharing
it. Of course, her job as a physical therapist means she won’t see much of
Jesse, even if he’s a few thin floorboards away—unless she seeks him out. And
with his sculpted body and slow-burn gaze, she might be tempted. Maybe the
fixer-upper projects she has planned for the cabin will keep her mind off him.
Or maybe her instincts to strip the place down will get out of hand…

It can be used with iPod Nano7, iTouch5, iPhone5, iPhone5s, iPhone6, iPhone6 plug,  iPad mini, iPad 4, iPad Air and more!  Plus it works with other smartphones and products.

There are so many different chargers out there to buy it is hard to know which ones work best for you.  So I was glad I got to try theCoosh Mfi-Certified Rapid Dual-USB Port Car Charger with Built-in Lightning Cable and Micro-USB Adapter and it is a charger I would recommend for other to buy. It really is a great product.

It is a high speed charger and automatically stops when the battery is full.  I just plug it in and after a short time my phone is recharged.  I was surprised that it works so well.  I have found many time if I have plans after work I need to charge my phone up a bit. It’s a good product to have in the car.

We occasionally get ants in our apartment. I never know why we don’t leave food out and our kitchen is clean.  Since we have cats I have to be careful what I get to get rid of them.  Recently I received this Rid-Techs Ultrasonic Pest Repeller. It uses ultrasonic technology to get rid of pest.

It’s very easy to use – I just plugged it in and  it sends out low frequency sound waves that people or pets can not hear, but it repels mice, rats, spiders, roaches, mosquitoes and ants.  I have had it plugged in for a month and haven’t noticed any ants and it is spring time – the time we would have in the past gotten them. So I think it is working.  What I like is that there is no harmful chemicals or poisons in the kitchen.  Nothing to clean up the bugs just leave.

1 plug in works for my kitchen and that is the room I have that normally would have a problem. I am sure if you had a large room like a basement or storage shed you would want to use a couple. If you would like to purchase your own Rid-Techs Ultrasonic Pest Repeller you can do so on the link below from Amazon.com.

Stories from Beauville #1
Tigris Eden
Releasing May 19th, 2015

 

Compromise is a word Annabelle Macon knows well. Sacrifices at home, in college and with her career, have all given her the tools to be the person she is. Now it seems she must also make concessions for her long-time love, Jackson Storme.

Six months into their relationship, and he’s already making unrealistic demands. With distance putting that much more of a strain on their relationship, how are the two ever going to manage?

Old insecurities have a way of resurfacing, making Anna feel less than suitable for someone like Jackson. She’s worked hard to get to where she is now. Her life and her work are clashing, making matters worse. Bringing a whole new meaning to work/life balance. But Anna knows that with a little give and take everything will fall into place, regardless of the obstacles that may stand in her way.

Excerpt:

Mom was on the porch watering her plants when we pulled up. She adores Jackson with every bone in her body.

“Ah, my sweet baby girl. Momma’s so glad you’re home.”

She pulls me into her arms, hugging me tightly.

“How’s my Anna?”

Pearl Macon always calls me her baby girl. It is a comfort that makes me feel extra loved.

“I’m good mama, how about you?”

“Oh, you know me. Surviving. You’re Sheriff’s been moping around town. When you’re not around, he’s a surly one. Even tried to give your momma a ticket for speeding.”

I mock gasp and turn to wink at Jackson who is still stuck in a rut. My mother looks over my shoulder and steps out of our hug so she can go to him.

“Get over here and give mama Pearl some lovin’.”

“Ma’am,” Jackson says, pulling her into a hug. It was mechanical. He’s rocked by the whole airport situation and I have no idea how to make it right. I am at a total lost.
“I made some sun tea. Ya’ll come on inside and sit a bit. Then I’ll let you two go and break some walls down.”

“Momma!” I scold. She’s never held back words and feels the need to over share, or in our case, insinuate we only want to have sex.

One of Tigris’ fondest memories, was in the sixth grade, when her teacher read her story, “The Case of The Missing Pepperoni”, out loud to the class. It was then she decided she wanted to be a writer when she grew up. But like all childhood dreams, reality has a way of crashing in and disrupting plans. But her imagination and the voices inside her head never stopped talking. Every dream she could remember was jotted down in her dream journals.
When she’s not writing Tigris marvel’s at life’s gifts. She likes to take pictures of beautiful things. She openly admits that what she may find beautiful another person might not, and she’s perfectly okay with that. She enjoys her music and doesn’t leave home without it. Long pillow conversations with LL about nonsensical things, and hanging out with her boys, when they deem her “cool enough.”
Tigris is a military brat who’s done her fair share of travelling, thanks to her Army father. She’s married to the infamous LL and has three boys. She currently resides in Houston and is actively seeking a book-buddy for the end of the world.

It is so easy to use and the innovative 360° roller head spins at 40x per second with a wide angle mineral surface providing a faster and more effective pedicure than the manual foot scrubbers.

The Pedi.Cure is water-resistant and may be used in the shower. Pedi.Cure comes with an additional replacement roller head and protective cover for long lasting use. Package also includes a cleaning tool to ensure Pedi.Cure will continue to function an an optimal level.

I really like my Pedi.Cure ~ my feet are very ticklish and I hate them being touched. I always love how my feet look after a pedicure but they are hard for me to go in for.  I like that I can do my own feet and they look nice with out having to have them scrapped or filed. The Pedi.Cure is battery operated so I can use it anywhere.

If you want to buy your own Pedi.Cure you can do so on the link below from Amazon.com.  Then you to can have amazing looking feet like me!

It actually is a really nice kit – more than what I had in the last one.

It comes in a nice zipper pouch with all of the following included:

• 24 Stainless Steel Needles of Various Sizes Contained In A Protective Plastic Case

• 12 Spools of Assorted Popular Colors of Thread

• A Pair of Stainless Steel Scissors

• A Seam Ripper with Plastic Cover

• Two Needle Threaders

• Tape Measure

• Straight Pins

• Safety Pins

• Thimble

• Buttons

It has everything you need to do an emergency repair or for a starting sewing kit.  This would be a great gift for someone going to college or moving out on their own.  I think I am going to get another one and put it in my car ~ you never know when you will need a Quick Stitch!

You can order you own Quick Stitch Sewing kit on the link below from Amazon.com.

As a clothing designer or manufacturer, you know that customers care just as much about how your clothing feels as how it looks. That is especially true when it comes to clothing made for kids. Kids hate feeling labels poking them in the back, and if they don’t like the way something feels, they’ll refuse to wear it. When choosing labels for your clothing, you want to pay as much attention to design as you do fit and comfort.

Type of Clothing Labels

There are generally three different types of labels designed for use in clothing. End folded, also known as folded end, labels feature folds on both ends that you can stitch onto clothing. Center fold labels feature a single fold and two ends that you stitch to the item. You can also opt for straight cut labels that have four sides you stitch to a piece of fabric. These labels are best for kids because the labels won’t rub against their skin or poke them in the back.

Choosing a Design

With custom woven labels, you have the chance to design custom labels from the ground up. Not only can you pick the type of label that you want, but you also decide on the type of stitching, the logo used and even the colors that you want. You might opt for multiple colors in your design or a bright satin finish to your labels. Shopping online lets you find and create the perfect labels for your clothing line.

I like to have a glass or two of wine at night and now that summer is coming I was thinking I would need to keep my wine in the fridge in between glasses.  I recently received this Wine Chiller by Bar Brat.  It is a stainless steel rod that you put in the freezer then when you want to either chill your wine or keep it chilled you put it in the bottle.  Now I can bring my wine on the back porch use the Wine Chiller from Bar Brat and keep my wine chilled.

In addition to the Wine Chiller I received a Wine Pourer that has a gravity lid that opens with you pour. It helps prevent drips so no red wine spots on the tablecloth.  Not only is it a pourer, it is a stopper for the bottle and a wine aerator.

The Wine Chiller and the Wine Pourer came in a nice box – perfect for gift giving and I thought about giving the set as a gift to my sister ~ but I thought I could use it so decided to keep it.  Already I have used the Wine Chiller a number of times and I just keep it in the freezer so it is ready when I want to use it.  I have also used the Wine Pourer and love that too.

If you want to purchase the same set as I have you can do so on the link below from Amazon.com.

IMG_1174 I love to use different colored ink when I write and I recently received these Pentel Vicuna Retractable Ballpoint Pens in assorted ink.  I like that they are fine point  and when you write with them it is smooth.  The colors are vivid and it makes what ever you write look better. Here are some of the features:

  • Retractable
  • Ultra-smooth ink flow
  • Unique finger grip
  • Oil-based ink

I also use pencils a lot – I do the schedule at work and the calendar constantly changes. I found that I like using the Pentel Twist-Erase III Mechanical Pencil.  I like that I don’t have to sharpen my pencil all the time.  Here you just twist and more lead comes out.  I have used some mechanical pencil that the lead breaks all the time – not the case with this one. It has a protective tip that is designed not to break the lead.  It is comfortable to hold and easy to control.

IMG_1176This is one of my favorite products it is the Pentel EnerGel Alloy RT Retractable Liquid Gel Pen.  It writes in black ink – and the pen itself is aquamarine in color. I love how it writes. It is nice an smooth and it just flows.  My hand doesn’t get tired from writing it has a nice textured grip.

You can find all of these products at  Shoplet.com along with any of your office needs. It is a great place to find office supplies, cleaning supplies, paper, ink and much more.  You can shop from your desk and have everything delivered to your door.
