Review: Pileggi on the Square

Review: Pileggi on the Square

Reviews 0

In case you haven’t heard me lamenting about it on Twitter, I have a crazy back problems. So many knots! So, I’m a huge fan of massages and spas. Who isn’t, really?! Last month I saw this amazing deal on Groupon where you could get a Deep Tissue Massage for only $39 (or 3 for $99) at Pileggi on the Square. Obviously, I couldn’t turn it down since usually I spend… Read more »

My Christmas Wishlist ’11

My Christmas Wishlist ’11

Shopping 4

It’s that time of year again! I think the only thing I got off of my wishlist last year was a new Blog Design (which I did again this year), haha. No.1 on my list, actually, is to figure out how to afford moving to WordPress & keeping up with hosting costs, but that’s an ongoing wish. Anyways, hopefully this year I’ll get some more awesome stuff. My list is definitely… Read more »

Torment by Lauren Kate

Torment by Lauren Kate

Young Adult Book Reviews 0 ★★½

I’ll admit, I liked this book better than the first, with its more appealing characters and the personal growth of Luce’s character; but its popularity and appeal to the masses is a mystery to me. While Kate is a good writer, detailing her environment and characters of the book, I found my mind constantly drifting off and losing focus. Nothing really drew me in. I kept waiting for the moment… Read more »

Project BG2, Week 38 – The Teeth, They Are A’Sprouting

Project BG2, Week 38 – The Teeth, They Are A’Sprouting

Project BG2 6

Well, once the second tooth made its debut, suddenly BG2 has got teeth popping up left and right?! The baby is proudly sporting some pearly whites on the left side of her upper gum, although I have yet to see them in person because I’ve been locked away studying for this bain-of-my-existence exam. Anyways, she’s been better lately, not as cranky. I was worried for a minute there when she… Read more »

Every Baby Needs a Blowdryer

Every Baby Needs a Blowdryer

BG2, Parenting 0

BG2 is now 8 months old, no longer considered a newborn (which, I think stops at 6 months) and I have yet to impart any of my “Caring for a newborn” wisdom. Being that it has been 6 years since I had to take care of a baby, I was a bit rusty and pretty much had to learn everything all over again. It came quickly and naturally, of course,… Read more »

Book Review: Legend by Marie Lu

Book Review: Legend by Marie Lu

Young Adult Book Reviews 5 ★★★★★

I do love a good dystopian novel, and let me tell you, I LOVED this book. It truly stands out on its own as unique and original. Marie Lu does an excellent job at developing a world so real and mind-blowing, it makes you wonder if our world could have this same fate. It did take me a few chapters to get into the book, so I thought it would… Read more »

Krispy Kreme is Taking Over Philly!

Promotional 1

In case you didn’t know, I’m a sucker for those drool-worthy glazed perfections that Krispy Kreme is known and loved for. That’s why I’m so happy to know that they are expanding once again, first in on Oxford (Fox Chase), then in Center City, and now they’re hittin’ up the Bensalem area (1729 Street Rd)! The GRAND OPENING will be on Monday, November 21st with the HOT LIGHT turning on… Read more »

Book Review: Shadowlander by Theresa Meyers

Book Review: Shadowlander by Theresa Meyers

Adult Book Reviews 2 ★★★½

I went into this thinking it was a young adult title and boy was I wrong! Not that there was anything wrong with that, because I was pleasantly surprised. I think I’m just so used to reading YA, that as I was going through this novella, I was like “WTH! Is she allowed to write that?!”. Anyways, I really enjoyed the book. At first, it reminded me of A Wicked… Read more »

Project BG2, Week 37 – Ack! My Gums Hurt!

Project BG2 2

Girl, BG2 has been going through it this week! Her first tooth made its appearance not too long ago, and now she’s cutting her second. But, as the first one came without any issues, we aren’t so lucky with this one. BG2 has been extremely fussy lately, barely sleeping and very clingy. You can’t help but feel sad when you look at her! Oh sure, there are moments when she’ll… Read more »
