Where I'm at ...

This is an important lesson to remember when you’re having a bad day, a bad month, or a shitty year. Things will change: you won’t feel this way forever. Sometimes the hardest lessons to learn are the ones your soul needs most. After all, you can’t truly be happy if you’ve never known pain. You can’t feel real joy unless you’ve felt heartache. You can’t know what it’s like to be filled unless you’ve been empty. You can’t have a sense of victory unless you know what it means to fail. You can’t know what it’s like to feel holy until you know what it’s like to feel really fucking evil. And you can’t be birthed again until you’ve died.

Who doesn't LOVE discounts on their fav stuff or better yet FREE SAMPLES of their fav stuff?!?!?!?

I know I do, but I usually don't fall into the hype because most of the freebies or giveaways are tied to giving up info that I would never recommend giving out or signing up to a bunch of SPAM that no one wants.

I took a chance on WOMANFREEBIES.COM aaannnndddd ..... I have not yet been disappointed!! Free food, free samples, discounts at my fav stores ... I've gotten it all, without inputting a credit card or joining some ridiculous {pay-per-month} club ☺The only newsletters I get are from companies that I love anyway, so I don't mind. So, yes I cosign ☺

Book Reviews

Attention all self-publishing authors!

I have decided to review the books of self-published authors, exclusively! As a self-published author myself, I know first hand how hard it is to get an honest review simply because there is no big named publisher backing you. For this reason a great chunk of SP work is lacking when it comes to content, editing, and even style. Or its almost impossible to get the word out about your book because no one wants to be the FIRST to test it out. With a review, readers will have a trustworthy source to base their purchase on.
Self-published books will be accepted by mail for hard/paperback copies, or by email for ebook formats. Please, also send a short bio and pictures of yourself and your book cover to Info@CcDenise.com with the subject heading as BOOK REVIEW INQUIRY. Author's sending by mail will recieve the mailing address once the inquiry is received.

Authors will have the option of providing a book for a GIVEAWAY. This is completely up to the author and may generate a bigger buzz about the book.

The review will include my rating from 0-5 stars and my explanation of the rating. A picture of the author and/or book cover. A short author bio and any links that the author wants to include.
Book Review Legend

★ Minimal to no spelling errors

★ Proper grammar used

★ Ideas flow together

★ Holds reader's attention

★ Book is helpful and/or entertaining

Each element is worth one star. Therefore, a book with 0 stars will need a complete rehaul in my opinion. A book with 3 stars may just need to be properly edited before being distributed and a book with 5 stars is a MUST READ!

Please be advised that all reviews will be completely honest and from my POV. I will never be harsh or rude, however I will not sugar coat anything. As a courtesy, the author will receive my completed review before it goes live on my site.

Spring Anticipation

My flowers are already starting to bloom ...

Can't wait for Spring! My fav season ☺

To three, or not to three ... that is the "real" question.

If you're like me, you haven't missed an episode of The Game since 1/11/11! Although there are some characters and scenarios that I'm currently voting to have written off {{ I strongly dislike the new BritBrat}}, I still love the "real life" issues that are tackled on the show. In fact, there's probably alot to be learned from that lifestyle, whether you have it or not ... here's a bit of what I've got so far.

No one really wants to share their man with another woman {{or man, for that matter}} Before you find yourself in a situation that you can not handle, you'd better think it ALL the way through.

Babies don't keep men ...  But a good man will always put his child first.

Crazy desperation is NOT a good look for anyone ... as cute as she is, she doesn't wear crazy well.
Let him go if he don't want you.

What you do, does affect your kids ... but you are still the parent. Beat your kids & don't let them talk to you any kind of way because what they don't learn at home, someone else {{who doesn't care one bleep about them}} will teach them.
