Going Nowhere Blog Tour

Keep your eyes open for an update post, very soon!

Series: Twenty-Something #1
Release date: January 7th 2014
Purchase: Amazon

BOOK DESCRIPTION: Marisol Finnegan has done everything right to ensure that when she graduated college she'd have the kickass life she always wanted. That's what we're told right? A + B = C? Yeah, well sometimes C is being a twenty-four year old virgin moving home with your parents. So not ideal. Before entering this tragically pathetic phase of her life, Marisol stops at a bar for a drink. It's here where her life really changes when she meets her catalyst...Jason Scott. After everything you've ever done has backfired and you no longer trust yourself how are you able to navigate a relationship? How do you even begin to love yourself let alone someone else?

Review: 5/5 Stars
This was absolutely the best book I have read in a REALLY long time.  Being someone who is going through a similar situation, I really related to Marisol. Don't even get me started on Jase. YUUMMMM. He drives a big truck? Enough for me!  The plot was put together perfectly. Even the sex scenes were tasteful, (I've read my fair share of atrocious ones!)

Character Casting:
This is my first time ever doing something like this, but honestly as soon as I read the book, I immediately placed the Jase character as Thomas Rhett. SWOOOOOON.

For Marisol, I chose Katie Holmes.  (Just a shorter version!) She really came across as that not your typical "beautiful," and super quirky.  I've loved Katie Holmes since the Dawson's Creek days are TOTALLY feel like she fit the bill.

ABOUT THE AUTHOR K.M. "Kelsie" Galvin grew up in the South with Yankee parents, which made for a very confusing accent. She loves music, books, blogging (Hola from Page Trotters!), Game of Thrones and coffee. Going Nowhere is her first book. kelsiegalvin.wix.com/kmgalvin | twitter.com/kelsiegalvin | Facebook

Simply Bracelet Review + Giveaway!

I was lucky enough to try out a bracelet by Simply Bracelet!  This one I tried is an Alex & Ani style, it is Gold with a Gold starfish charm.  If you know me, you know I am OBSESSED with this style of bracelet, and now have one in each metal tone! 

This bracelet is a little larger of a size, than the other ones(from other companies) that I own. I like that, because it is more of a bangle style. It is SO easy to slip on and off, but not too big where you worry about it falling off. SO comfy!

Simply Bracelet gives you a few different options. If you want to buy a specific bracelet, you can from the shop on her site.  Her prices are definitely reasonable.

Honeycat Cosmetics Review!

Everyone knows that I am a LUSH junkie, so as far as bodycare, that is what I base everything off of.  I was super excited to get my hands dirty with a different brand, Honeycat Cosmetics!  (It doesn't hurt how everything is Kitty-themed. How. Freaking. Cute!)

The packaging is to die for.  You can tell they really put their hearts into each and every product.
The first product I got to try was the Amenity Kit-ty. This contained a Shampoo, Conditioner, Body Lotion and Shower gel.

The next item I got was the Heme Dream Bath Fizzy.
This smelled AMAZING! Who doesn't love Pomegranate! This was the one product I was most interested about. I LOVED the way this one smelled.  I was aware that this had red body glitter on it, so keep that in mine when purchasing! I wish this one was a little more oily, but like I said, I am also used to Lush's Bath products.

The last item I got to review was the set of Chocolate Bath Melt Treats. AHHHH I'M IN LOVE! These guys are tiny, but they pack a PUNCH.  I really enjoy the scent of these as well. I like to cocktail these with a super scented bath bomb. These are hands down my favorite! I highly recommend these!

Hope you check these purrrrrfect products out!

Soda Stream Review!

I am SO excited about this review! Nick and I have been eyeing one of these for awhile, and totally jumped at the chance to try it out for you guys!
I was SO shocked at everything that we recieved, it was HUGE boxes!
The Soda Stream Source is honestly so much sleeker than I imagined.  We live in a condo, and have lots of appliances (Hello Keurig,) and don't have a ton of counter top space.  The Source is something that can be easily tucked away.

We received the Soda Stream Source-

"What makes a product simply genius? A beautiful design. Simplicity. Convenience. And the fact that every time you use it, you are making the planet a cleaner place to live. Powered by a reusable CO2 canister, the refined mechanics of the all-new SodaStream Source make the entire top surface responsive to touch to quickly transform water into soda. An LED display indicates three levels of fizziness for precise carbonation with every use, while a new snap-lock bottle mechanism makes the Source even easier to use." - Sodastream

We also got a variety of flavors to try! The root beer was mine and hubby's favorite! We also liked the convince of it, we don't drink soda a ton, but it is nice to have it there and ready for whenever you do!

I would have to say that my favorite thing about using the soda stream, is that once your CO2 tank is empty, you can take it to any retailer, and get another one half off when you trade in the old one! Heck yeah! You can find replacements conveniently at like Target, or Bed Bath and Beyond.

I find that this is an excellent thing to add to your kitchen counter whether you drink soda all the time, or just occasionally.  Not a soda drinker? They have water flavors as well!
