Absolute love by Erin Everleigh Promo Blog Tour

I've got another Blog tour post for today! This is absolute love by Erin Everleigh. 

Phoebe thought she had her Happily Ever After. She had a beautiful little girl and was married to the man of her dreams.

But the unexpected death of her mother causes Phoebe’s world to come crashing down.

Confronted with the realization that the missing pieces of her past are lost to her forever, she watches herself morph into a person she no longer recognizes. A person she quickly grows to hate.

Barely making it through each day, Phoebe struggles to repress her darkest thoughts. But at night, she is held captive in nightmares from which she cannot escape.

With her marriage dangling by a thread, Phoebe fears a future with Justin may no longer be possible.

Refusing to give up, Justin fights for the life they used to share. But when he stumbles upon what could be the missing piece to Phoebe's past, he is faced with a choice that could cost him everything.

When you feel like all hope is lost, is there a love that can transcend all and revive a broken soul?

The Author:

Canadian born and raised, Erin Everleigh, is the mom of three girls, who always keep her on her toes - twins age 7 and an older sister that is almost 9. She has a self-confessed addiction to reading that her family will certainly corroborate, and you will rarely find her without her kindle at arm’s length constantly feeding this obsession.

After months of writing out chapters on her iPhone, she finally opened up her laptop and decided to take the plunge.

This Heart of Mine by Brenda Novak Book Blast, Excerpt and GIVEAWAY

Hi Everyone! Today, I am part of a book blast for Brenda Novak's book, This Heart of Mine. Make sure to read till the end for the Giveaway! It is open internationally. 

This Heart of Mine
          (Whiskey Creek #8)

Brenda Novak

Release Date: March 31st

First love. Second chance? 

As the daughter of a hoarder, Phoenix Fuller had a tough childhood. So when the handsome, popular Riley Stinson became her boyfriend in high school, she finally felt as though she had something to be proud of. Phoenix was desperate not to lose him—especially once she found out she was pregnant. Yes, she might have acted a bit obsessive when he broke up with her. But she did not run down the girl he started dating next.

Unfortunately, there was no way to prove her innocence. Now, after serving her time in prison, Phoenix has been released. All she wants to do is return to Whiskey Creek and get to know her son. But Jacob's father isn't exactly welcoming.

Riley doesn't trust Phoenix, doesn't want her in Jacob's life. He is, however, ready to find someone to love. And he wants a good mother for his son. He has no idea that he's about to find both!


As soon as they were gone, Riley grabbed Phoenix’s elbow, hanging on even when she tried to avoid the contact, and guided her to his truck. “Let’s get you to a doctor.”
The second Riley mentioned doctor, she wrenched away from him. “No, I―I don’t need a doctor.”
 “He’ll check out that cut, tell us if it needs stitches.”
 “A doctor will cost money. And I…I have other plans for…for my income in the next while.”
What income? He doubted she had any, but he couldn’t say that. “Phoenix…”
“Stop,” she said. “I’ve had worse than this. This is nothing.”
Watching her closely, he could see that she was dizzy. “Do it for Jacob’s peace of mind, then.”
“Please, don’t.”
“Don’t what?”
“I haven’t got the money for a doctor. I’m sure you know that.”
I’ll look after the bill,” he said, but he should’ve known that wouldn’t convince her.
She edged farther away from him. Then she started down the street at a faster clip than he felt she should. “I’m okay,” she called back. “Go take care of Jacob.”
“Damn it, Phoenix.” He hurried after her. “Why do you have to be so stubborn? It won’t cost that much.”
She hadn’t bothered to turn when he spoke, so he’d been talking to her back. “It’s a waste of money,” she told him over one shoulder. “I’m fine, like I said.”
“It’s five miles to your place. You’ll never make it.”
She made no comment.
“Soon you won’t even be able to see where you’re going, what with all that blood.”
Again, she didn’t respond. She’d managed to put a little distance between them and obviously thought she was getting away. But he wasn’t about to let her go. He had no idea whether she’d make it. So he jogged after her and swept her into his arms, which wasn’t hard since she didn’t weigh much.
“Ah!” she cried. He’d startled her. She hadn’t expected that move. He guessed her head hurt, too, and being jarred hadn’t helped.

“We’re doing this my way,” he said, and carried her to his truck.

Fashion: Alberto Sumague Jane Bag in Black

Hi there! 

Today I'll be talking about another item from Alberto Sumague. He was very kind to give me this back in the 10th Megabrands sale [check out my post here]. I've used it several times and I wanted to talk about it. 

This is a pretty small sling or body bag [9"x11x]. It's just a little smaller than the standard size throw pillow as you can see in the back. It also has an adjustable long strap. 

The upper front flap is the main opening for the bag.

The lower front flap opens the small front pocket. If you're the type to use small pockets for your phone, keys, etc. this is where you can place them. I really like the idea of the 2 front flaps. It doesn't just make it look good, but it makes it different from most bags in the market.

I thought I'd show you how cute it is to have both flaps connected to open the small front pocket.

It also has a zipper in the back for your other small items and whatnot.

There is this zipper in the back side of the bag.

Look at the texture of the leather used. I'm definitely very cautious about what texture and material are used for bags. I have a lot of experience with bags where the leather-like material gets peeled off. I also have experience with 'leather' that just snaps off. I don't think the same thing will happen with this though. Their leather looks very durable and it doesn't look like the type that gets peeled off.

I've made sure to use this bag a lot of times before I talked about it. I wanted to make sure it's as good as it seems. I've used it during times when I am out for the most part of the day. I've also experienced using it during rainy days. It has not deteriorated one bit. Honestly, it still looks new to me. I also tried filling it up with random items and hanging it for a day. I wanted to see if it easily breaks when you put a lot of stuff in. It doesn't. It can carry a lot considering its size.

I can honestly say that this is better than a lot of the brands they sell in malls. In the Philippines, several brands found in malls aren't good. They easily break or deteriorate. I know someone who bought a bag that broke the first time she used it [this was back in my OJT/internship days]. I've also experienced buying a bag from Landmark [one of those sale items that seems nice] and it broke when it was mostly filled with just necessities. I think I still have it in my closet. Whenever I see it, it reminds me to buy something of good quality. I shouldn't buy something just because it's cheap.

At ten years old, Hadley Dixon's life changed forever. Since those few tragic weeks, she's tried to keep the past buried, but old bones have a way of rising up. Grown now, Hadley can't hide any longer.
Haunted by a boy who never made it home, a woman who sings in moonlight and dances in flames, and the strange, scarred recluse who watches it all from the shadow of the pines, the time has come for Hadley to pay for her sins.

They say the truth will set you free, but sometimes it extracts a terrible price along the way. Is it a price Hadley's willing to pay?
A darkly moving mystery, with a southern Gothic feel, The Grave Tender is the story of a family where no one is what they seem, the women at the heart of that family, and the extraordinary lengths they're willing to go to protect the ones they love.
