Reading is Fundamental

I love to read. Lately since I have been working on my doctorate, I have not had as much time to engage in leisurely reading.  I do however have a few recommendations that have been life changing for me.

The Four Agreements and the Fifth Agreement


This book was a real game changer for me.  Don Miguel Ruiz, wrote a book that is a true game changer.  This book helped me to see that I only had control of myself not anyone else and what people thought about me was not my concern.  I purchased this book for a lot of my family members because I felt like it was something we could all benefit from.  I reread this book often just as a reminder of how to focus on myself and how this focus is what my life is about.

The Wednesday Witch

This is a children’s book an done that I have loved since childhood.  The book is about a witch who rode a vacuum cleaner instead of a broom.  It was a whimsical and fun read and I have it now as a part of my literary collection.  Did I just say literary collection?  I guess I do have a great deal of books.  It is a great feel good book and I read this book when I need a pick me up or when I just want to relax and escape.

Currently, I am collecting books to read once I finish school.  The first and foremost is the Year of Yes by Shonda Rhimes and #GirlBoss by Sophia Amoruso.  I am looking forward to working on myself and building my businesses.  This will be my Year of Yes!  These are just a few reading suggestions for you.  Tell me some of your favorites in the comments below.

What’s New Wednesday

In our first edition of What’s New Wednesday we present to you GorJus Whips by Jacqueline Elliot.

Gorjus Whips is a healthy natural multipurpose line of products that will enrich and restore your skin.  The hand crafted, responsibly produced body butters and scrubs can be used year round on all skin types.  There are two collections currently for sale the D’Lux 18 collection and the Change 7 collection.

My favorite collection is the Change 7 collection which is inspired by essential oils from the Bible.  This divinely inspired collection of biblical proportions, required the careful study of biblically based essential oils and their uses.  The end result is 7 products that complement the 18 original items.

My favorite scent is from the D’Lux 18 collection and is called Heavenly.  This lightly fragrant, non oily butter is a refreshing change from the harsh and heavy perfumes people often wear.  This scent can be worn alone or balanced with a complementary scent of your choice for a lasting refreshing smell throughout your day.  The non oily nature of the products makes it easy to use and wear throughout the day prevents the mess that heavy oils and lotions often present.


Not only do the products smell good they are beautifully packaged and can be displayed in plain view.  It is evident that a great deal of care and preparation went into the development and the marketing of this great line of skin care products.  For more information about the product line, the creator or for orders please click the link above or you can access their website here:

Trust me you will not be disappointed.
