Book Review 2 "City Chic"

Book Review

Author: Nina Willdorf

Title: City Chic The Moderns Girl's Guide to Living Large on Less

Genre: Women & Young Adult Women 

Book 2 is another interesting book I found in the same section as the first book. This book talks about living on your own for the first time and what to do and how to budget your money.

This book is very helpful for the girls moving on there own for the first time, even if your still in your parents home and you have your own room.

A must read book if you would like to manage your money and lifestyle. The tips also have good links for you to check out and I did check them out and I liked them.

I use them before and still do at times. Thrift Shops are my fav.

So if your looking to save money and spend on a budget this is a must read. I give 5 Stars.

Book Review " How to Walk in High Heels"

Book Review 1

Author: Camilla Morton

Title: How to Walk in High Heels

Genre: Women & Young Adult Women


At times I like to find books on self help in this genre. I went to the library the beginning of this month April and found 2 fun books. This book dealt with how to's and not's on dressing and appearances.

It is a very interesting book and has a lot of great tips for us women going on interviews or everyday outings. The tips have to be my favorite, and I would recommend this book to all the women out there that would like to try changing there appearance and have fun with a new fresh look.

It never hurts to try a new fun style sometimes:)  5 Stars from me.

Casual Chit Chat Thursday

Good Morning Everyone,

 It is a half gloomy day but still a warm beauty in a way. I have a couple of books to give a review on that I checked out from the library, I can't remember the last time I went all the time to the library.

I just wish that the public would put there lap tops down and pop into a library you never know what cool  magazine, movie or book to rent out.

I also have a couple of movies I rented and will review all tomorrow's post:) in the meantime enjoying a strawberry banana orange juice smoothie it reminds me of Orange Julius but with out the powder aftertaste.





I just chop up the fruits and toss in and blend.


I can't help it I drank it all :) Have a wonderful day.

Recipe Old El Paso Taco Boats

Steak Taco Boats


I found this recipe over at Betty Crocker's, it is a Philly Cheese Steak Boat. It did not turn out like the recipe. I did it my way and if you would like the real recipe just click above.

Here is what I used: Montreal Steak Grilling Seasoning, Steak, Green Onion, Lettuce, Tomatoes, Shreded Cheese, El Paso Boats, Cilantro.  I forgot the fries.



What I did with mine was take the beef steak cut it in cubes and add the Montreal Steak Grill Seasoning mixing it well, then add it to a hot vegetable oil pan.

You will cook it till it is done fully. I really like the seasoning, although I bought the wrong one, I got hamburger steak grill instead of steak but it still came out real good and tasty.


Here it is when I added all. I have in my little boat is Cilantro, Green Onion, Tomatoes, Shredded Cheese, Lettuce.


This is my version. I just didn't have the right stuff for the real recipe, that will be a next try:) Please let me know if you try this one or make your own as well.

10 Blogging Topic Ideas for your Blog Post

10 Blogging Tip Ideas




We all have that big block when it comes to thinking of what to write of. I have many times to this day get block. So I think  to myself what would people find interesting in reading? I know I have to come up with better post myself and make the reader more interested.

I do hope that these tips help you overcome that block, and please if you have other tips useful please share them in the comment section for other readers to view and try.



Tips to Try:

1. Interview someone that is in the same niche as your blog, and ask them questions on how they got to where they are now. Make the questions very interesting.

2. Who doesn't like Crafts. Try a how to video with step by step instructions on what you find interesting and make sure that your reader will like it as well. Stay in your blog frame.

3.  I always come up to this one when I am checking other blogs in my niche. Tell your reader the Lessons that you learned from posting the first time and not doing it again. With an explanation on what made you learn from the mistake. I still have to do a post on this one from me.  

4. Social media we all like the great tips.  If you have information on media platforms and what to do with them that involves your blog, share them with your reader. They will love it, specially if it will help them with there blog. 

5. Family is the most important one. If you have a family and have great tips on how to budget your shopping, family life and make time for you. Share it as well with other parents out there.

6. Trips even if it is around town. Take a few photos not of  street names to identify exactly
 where your at, but photos of what you know your reader will find interesting, then write a little about that photo and share them, I myself love seeing other bloggers trip photos even if it is the trip to the market.

7. Fashion see what you have in your closet that no one has seen in your photos before and make  fun look book. Include your accessories and fun hairstyles.

8. Cooking & Baking I enjoy seeing other people cook and trying there recipe's. If your have a recipe that you love why not share it along with step by step instructions and photos or a video. Make it interesting that they will want to try it as well. 

9. Everyone at some point looks for that Health and Fitness Tips. Why not share what you know so that the reader will do there own research on that tip and if they find it helpful, they just may come back for more tips on what you may share next.

10. If you can just get out side and Go around your town and see what is so interesting that catches your eye and will grab your reader. See if there are any events, museums, old historic sites, fun concerts, nature walks, so many to name just go out and see what you can blog about.
