As we prepare for food, fireworks, and (possibly) friends–here’s a quick cocktail hack to help save time and keep you focused on the quality time amongst your loved ones.

Book Review: Cherry Girl

So Raine Miller surprised her fans and snuck in a book–who does that?!?! Quite impressive. Apparently, no one saw this one coming, including Miller. She said she didn’t intend to write the story of Neil and Elaina, but I for one am so glad she did! (And what a pretty book cover.) Miller is one of my fave authors and the creative mind behind the Blackstone Affair series, which I fell in love with...

And you all–my readers–shall reap the benefits. As part...

My Mammogram Experience

I have been meaning to write about this for a while, but it was difficult when I was in the moment and once it was over, I moved on. However, in honor of breast cancer awareness month, I thought I’d discuss my most recent–as well as past–trials and tribulations with the ta ta’s. For those that don’t know, I’m over 40. 42 to be exact. So, at the behest of my gyn, every year...
