And the temperature is….

I woke up late this morning because went to bed late because there is this book I am reading and I can’t seem to put it down….

Anyway, I had all good intentions of doing things today because yesterday I spent reading and relaxing all day. So I finally got myself downstairs and in setting up for breakfast, my hubby calls down and says there is no hot water. Well, not the end of the world. Not as if there is no heat. So the plans I had for today had to go on the back burner and I am now waiting for the service man due this afternoon.

Meantime I checked the weather outside and found it is…..9 degrees? But it feels like… -13 degrees? OK, no way I am venturing out to complete some chores….at least it did not snow and turn to ice…. We can do this, only a few more weeks until spring….

There is laundry to be done and some bathrooms to be cleaned…now where did I put that book I was reading?

Love You Gone

Love You Gone


Love  You Gone by Rona Halsall

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Twists and turns and just when you thought you knew what was happening….it changes again. I got this book through NetGalley for an honest review. The book is coming out on Nov 15, so put it on your list.

Mel comes home to find her husband and two children gone. They left a note “gone for a walk” but then they never return. The police are called and what seems like an innocent scene gone wrong, the more you read the more you find out what you thought was happening isnt so.

You start feeling sorry for the wife until you’re presented with a whole different scenario. Who is the victim here? This is a book you cant put down because you are not really sure how it is going to end.

I Carry My Store with Me

I bet you didnt know you can do that.  Who ever heard of carrying a store with you.  But the amazing part is, I do that.  I have no overhead…great not paying rent and my store can be stored anywhere.  I have my store in my bag, in my car and of course at home.  I bring it with me wherever I go.

I am an Avon Rep and all I need is my computer and brochures. The brochures are my store to give out to customers…everything I sell is in that book….My computer is my order book…and even better when I dont have the computer with me, my phone does the job.

Last week my husband was in the hospital, so I spent my time driving into the city, spending the day with him and then driving home at night.  Exhaustion set in as soon as I got home.  Did this for five days with my order being due on Sunday.  How was I going to get customers while taking care of hubby.

No problem.  Met people in the hospital, introduced them to my “store” – handed out brochures.  Took orders on my phone, gave out my business card.  While in the hospital I texted customers that orders were due on Sunday and they texted me back their orders.  Then I placed orders through the phone……and that is how I got $800 in orders to submit on Sunday night.  40% of that order is mine…..

There is nothing better than just needing your phone or even a pen and paper to work your business…..can you do this?

If I have your interest in becoming an Avon Rep, please contact me at beautyboss2015@gmail.com on how to join my team.  You start off with a Starter Kit and free website…..and then you can take your store with you too!


Book Review: The Flight Attendant

The Flight Attendant by Chris Bohjalian

The Flight Attendant

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Imagining waking up in a hotel next to the man you just slept with – who is also dead. Someone slit his throat. But then imagine that you were also drunk, having been drinking all night with this man, and dont remember what happened or if in fact you were the one who killed him.

This is the life of Cassandra, flight attendant, on her flight to Dubai. And so she runs, away from the man, away from the woman who was with them the day before, but not away from her troubles. They do catch up to you. This begins a series of lies to keep herself out of this disaster, only to dig herself deeper into the maze. This is not only a story of murder, but also addiction and the lengths we go to in order to be one step ahead of the inevitable.

Just when you think Cassandra cant get any worse….she pulls another antic that does not help her. Great read….keeps you sitting on the end of your seat.

It was beautiful….

I have been feeling a bit down lately.  Probably because the winter wont go away….or spring wont come yet.  Been in the house way too much also.  Hubby is not well…his idea of life is eating, watching tv and sleeping.  While I dont blame him – the meds make him tired – and each year seems to be harder for him….I have found that I need to move….so I had finally decided ….
