Forthcoming Reviews

Drew at Eden Fantasys was nice enough to send me some products to review some months ago. Due to some health problems I wasn't really able "try out" the products in order to give them a fair review. So, coming up soon I'll be posting my review of the Fetish Femme babydoll and the 101 Nights of Grrreat Sex Boardgame. In the meantime head over to Eden Fantasys for all your romantic needs.

I finally broke down and spent the close to $4 on the Yes to Carrots lip balm. Give me a few days to try it out and I'll have a review for that.

My order from Gold Canyon Candles arrived yesterday so I will have something to say about those in the next week or so as I try them all out.

Finally, I have a review on soap rocks coming up as well.

Stay tuned! And I'm back!!!

Free Book Fridays

Check out Free Book Fridays. Every week they give away several books. There is a teen site as well. A few weeks ago I won 1 of 5 signed copies of Sorrow Wood by Ramond Atkins. Look for my review when I finish reading it.

Demeter Home Fragrance Library

I recently won a gift certificate to Demeter Fragrance in a giveaway hosted by
Grocery Price Books. Head on over and check out some of her other giveaways. I used my gift certificate this morning to order the following fragrances: chocolate chip cookies, funeral home, beet root, string bean, and rye bread. I can't wait to get them and start sniffing. I've had funeral home before and I love it. It's a carnationy fragrance. I'm interested to see how the others smell as they are different than your normal perfumes. I love the smell of fresh green beans as I'm cutting off the tops and preparing to cook them. Demeter Fragrance has some normal fragrances such as rose and violet but also some more interesting ones like glue, playdough, paperback books, dirt, crayons, and Hersheys chocolate.

If you'd like to win a fragrance for yourself check out the contest hosted by
Pour Some Sugar on Me. She is giving away a 1 oz cologne spray in one of the following scents: watermelon, Bulgarian rose, fuzzy navel, raspberry jam, gardenia or Kahala coconut.

July Books Log

I only read one book for the month of July, "The Dogs of Babel" by Carolyn Parkhurst, 261 pages. I have to say, it's one of the best books that I have read all year. This brings my year count up to 46, with a total of 11,801 pages to date. I'm way behind on my goal for the year. This year I've been incredibly busier than I thought I would be. Many things have happened and it seems I'm behind on everything.

I'm currently reading "Hyperion" by Dan Simmons, "The Immortal" by Christopher Pike, and "Strangers" by Dean Koontz. All of these are rereads for me. I'm trying to get as many books finished from my bookshelf as possible as we will be taking a trip up north to Bookmans soon.

I also got about half way through "Act like a woman, Think like a man" by Steve Harvey. My mother insisted I read it, but I personally think that most men don't act as depicted in the book. I lost interested and she needed the book back.

In other book news, "The Time Traveler's Wife" has finally been made into a movie. It's one of my favorite books and I'm interested to see how it turns out. I'm not 100% in love with the actors that were chosen for the roles, but we shall see how they do.
