The whole situation has only one flaw– Finley’s older brother, Jude. Jude King is cocky, arrogant and irritating. Unfortunately, he’s also completely irresistible.
Eden realizes she’s underestimated the depth of Finley’s problems, and suddenly her dream job turns out to be a lot more than she’d expected. Eden soon finds herself in over her head . . . and her heart. About Tess Oliver

He placed down his pencil and walked across the floor toward me. The crackling energy I’d felt between us the night before when he’d stood over my bed returned now and grew with hot intensity as the space between us disappeared. I was not the only one noticing the sudden charge in the atmosphere between us. He stopped directly in front of me, and even with loud music bouncing off the walls, I could hear the unnaturally fast rhythm of his breathing.
He hesitated a moment and then his hand came up slowly and brushed the hair off my face. His fingertips had only grazed my cheek, but I felt the sensation of his touch through my entire body. He looked back at me as if he’d smoothed his hands over every inch of my skin. The air between us heated and what had started out as a casual session between an artist and his subject had somehow erupted into something completely different.

Epsilon A.R. :: Book Review

Epsilon A. R. 
By:: Zachery Alexander Humphreys

Publisher:: Black Rose Writing
Pages:: 308
Price:: $7.99
Type:: Science Fiction

About the Book::
Hundreds of years into the future mankind has gone under-ground to relocate to Epsilon; a beautiful city run by a strong, secretive government that keeps its citizens in check by subtle manipulation and strict schedules. No one questions the city’s authority and no one is unhappy. ALN-896, an average man who is just trying to live a normal life, begins to have dreams; something strange and rare in Epsilon. In his dreams a man named Harry dies. ALN-896 shrugs this off as if nothing has happened. It was only a dream. The next day, however, he is suddenly arrested and sent to prison for killing Harry. Now inside prison, ALN-896 begins to learn about what the government of Epsilon has been doing and he plans on escaping. Not only from prison, but from Epsilon. This one decision turns him against everything he has ever known and forces him to face against centuries of lies. To escape means to live, but what will it cost?

My Thoughts::
Now, I am all about some science Fiction TV shows. Watching so many that it is just easier for me to DVR them now. But this is a book that has you at a stand still. What would it be like to go to bed at a set time, having a boy/girl friend, no dreaming and a have no mind set at all. That is what this book was like for me. Everyone has 3 letters and 3 numbers in their name. If you did not listen to what others say and follow orders then you went to jail. Jail has its own world to deal with hard conditions that you need to fail. When ALN-896 starts dreaming about a co worker dying he is put in jail for killing him. 

Is Aln-896 responsible for killing his co-work or was he put in jail by wrong full justice? You need to read this book and find out what happens to him and was it all real.

Back in March my future husband took the leap and moved 1600 miles from Tennessee to Arizona. This was a big deal since he never lived outside of Tennessee, so he bough a GSP. This GPS looks awesome and with the ever changing world and roads. It would be good to have a GPS in the car.

With a variety of artist on the album, no two tracks have the same feel to them.

  • Protects with SPF 15 & antioxidants
  • Hydrates with Kokum, Almond, Aloe and Vitamins A, E & C
  • Paraben-Free
  • Compliments your skin tone with a hint of color in 5 perfect-match shades

My Thoughts::
Ever since I was in high school, I have never been a girl that puts on the make up and gets all dolled up every time she goes out of the house. I would look nice and putting on a little eyeliner and lip gloss that was about the extent of it. This being it takes time to put on foundation, power, mascara, lip stick and eyeliner. So I found it easier to just go natural and put the minimal on when going out.

As I start becoming more of a sophisticated woman it helps to look your best and flaw less since I never know when I will meet a potential client or future business endeavors. So when I was approached by IMAN to do a review on the Iman BB Crème, I was excited since I have never used a great BB crème product before.

I received the BB crème from IMAN right before I left for my Hispanicize conference/Event that was being held in Miami, Florida. From the first day that I put on the BB crème, I really loved it for so many different reasons. The shade that I picked was the Sand Medium color tone for my skin. It looked find of light for my skin color but it seemed like the right choose since normally when I choose a color for myself I pick on the this to be the right color and it turns out to be why to dark. So picking a lighter shade worked out for me great, being that I have some spots on the side of my face that are darker then others.

When I rubbed the BB crème over my face it is a light crème that did not leave my hand with a orange tint that I was afraid was going to happen. It also gave my skin an all over even skin color, that was just amazing. Since they time I was in Miami, I was in speaker sessions and having fun with my new friends at night. 

I did not have color coming off on my hands when I touched my face and it blended so will into my skin.  With this BB Crème being the first product that I have tried from IMAN, I can understand why that received these awards. I loved using IMAN and will be coming a loyal costumer now.

Disclosure~  I received the above mentioned complimentary product for the purpose of a written review.  All opinions expressed are 100% my own.  Whether or not you agree, I only recommend products I personally use and feel would be good for my readers.  No monetary compensation was exchanged.  I disclose according to FTC rules and regulations.

Like no Other

A flight Like No other

For years, upon years I have been flying on planes to many different destinations like Florida, Tennessee and Arizona. Ever since I was a little child. Most of the time someone is always traveling with me, weather it is one of my family members or my son. Yet, that is not how it has been lately. With in the last month, most people on the social media connection site think that I am a traveling queen having gone to Nashville, Tennessee last month, to only turn around and drive back to Arizona a few days later. Then now today I am flying into Miami for the Hispanicize #2013 Social Media Event of the year. That will be happening at the Eden Roc in Miami, Florida from April 9 - April 13th. 

I am not sure why but every time I book my flight to leave Phoenix it is always a few hours before my flight takes off. Today I decided to give my self a bigger gap thinking that when I get off I would have a good twelve hours to relax before I have to head off to the airport for my long day of flying to the east coast. My 3:30 pm flight from Phoenix to Atlanta felt like a very long flight, so much so I fell asleep and still watch a movie that I have been wanting to see for months now Parental Guidance with Billy Crystal and Bette Midler. Oh, It was such a funny movie. I missed the beginning but it was still funny. When the plane started to descend and were taxing around the landing strip to are finally stop the to gate. I notice something that I have never noticed before, and I am pretty sure I know the reason why i have not noticed it. It is because whenever I travel it is normally with my mom or son when it is dark outside. So I never notice the airplanes lining up in a straight line and them only ever taking off from one strip. It was such a strange thing for me to see. It reminded me of my son playing with his Matchbox Planes and Cars. The toys all lined up looking so pretty and shinny. 

Their had been so many I would not say strange things that have happened on my flight today but they felt strange to me. Like I the last few flights that I have taking I feel like I am getting motion sickness and it is so strange. I never had this problem when I was a kid and it is not only happening when I am flying in planes. It also happens when I am not driving a car too. If I am driving, I have no problems at all. So I made sure that I brought me some Bobs Sweet Strips soft mint candy's for the plane ride.

Something new that I did today I thought was fun and weird  Was that Atlanta International Airport has a Airport Train. It is like subway train that takes you to each of the letters A - F for your departed Flight. This was something that I really like since so many times you would get off a flight for a connection flight to find that you only have a few minutes to get to your flight and it would be on the other side of the terminal. Now, the other side of the terminal would not be so far, Nor would it take so long.

I just wanted to let everyone know about my weird flight day Yesterday.
