Stuff I Love!


Just a few of my favorite things!

Books for FUN!
Just LOVE the Fatal Series from Marie Force
She Can series from Melinda Leigh
The Colorado Mountain Series from Kristen Ashley is wonderful
The Stage Dive Series from Kylie Scott is DELICIOUS – but not for the faint of heart 🙂
J.D. Robb’s In Death Series is a favorite of mine

Blogs
The Creative Penn
Joanna blogs about her journey quitting her day job, making a living as a writer full time, and new and interesting things in the self-publishing industry.

Podcasts
The Creative Penn Podcast
Joanna’s podcast is great as well.
The Self-Publishing Podcast – Johnny, Sean and Dave are HILARIOUS, and occasionally profane. OK, more than occasionally. Topics span creativity, collaboration, self-publishing and being awesome.
Mark Dawson’s Self Publishing Formula podcast is fantastic. Informative interviews and a lovely chat off the back end.

My husband and his socks habit…
Star Wars

I am addicted – love this stuff! Nice little burst of energy, plus vitamins!

Amazing tiny LED lights – fantastic for parties! Just pull the tab and fling them about – lovely!

Meteor lights – I hung these from my ceiling for NYE and flooded it w balloons – looked amazing!

Best citrus juicer ever, and we make a LOT of margaritas.

This COSMO robot is ADORBS! It talks back to my kids, and recognizes them, calling them by name!

This bath caddy is fantastic, expands long enough to fit over my tub and has a space for my champagne glass – what more could you ask for?

These LED light strips are great, stick anywhere and are compatible w Siri! We are using them to highlight the stone on the back of our bar.

How cute is this bookend?

We got our boys these Kindle’s, so they can read in bed without the added distraction of a full-on tablet.

I am OBSESSED with shirts with the thumb hole cut outs! This one is super soft.

I am kind of an organizing freak – these made me SO happy when packing for my last trip!

This computer bag from London Fog is great, looks chic but holds a TON, lots of organizy (totally a word) slots and fits in overhead bins.

I don’t know if any of you are aware, or even care, but TONS of the olive oil marked as ‘extra virgin’ isn’t REALLY extra virgin. After researching, we use this one as our every day EVOO, this one as our next step up, for salad dressings, pasta, etc., and this one as our ‘OMG these tomatoes are perfect’ EVOO, or even for dipping bread before dinner.
