Frankincense

What I’m Reading Now

Posted on Updated on

A couple of days ago, I shared with you a giveaway Atria Books was offering to all my readers.  I was rather intrigued by it, so I agreed to post it and share it with all of you.  I’ve heard of gift cards, free books, even free e-readers.  However, I have never heard of perfume samples being given.  These are perfume samples that were created to duplicate the scents described in the book, The Book of Lost Fragrances by M.J. Rose.

I started reading the book last night and was immediately pulled into the story.  While I am only 1/3 of the way in, I am enjoying the mystery, learning about the different scents that Napoleon himself loved, and learning about the Tibetan community.  Yes, this book certainly will keep your interest and flows flawlessly.

The title of this book, while is good, doesn’t describe the intrigue and fascination readers will become immersed in while reading this book.  I love reading watching movies about Coco Chanel, so reading this book made me think of her and her quest to find the right scents for her No. 5 perfume.

I will post my review on this book soon!  In the meantime, enjoy their special gift!

I am reposting the offer for those wanting to pre-order this book.  I am also working with Atria Books to hopefully be able to provide a sample of perfumes giveaway, too!

It’s Great To Be Back & Free Perfume Offer!

Posted on Updated on

It’s great to be back!  I’ve missed blogging, but I am focusing on my recovery.  I had surgery on January 5th and have been in an arm brace 24/7.  I started therapy a few weeks ago, going 3 times a week for 1.5 hrs.  The other days, I do the exercises at home.  Unfortunately, having my shoulder in an arm brace for so long has caused secondary issues with my elbow and wrist.  So, my therapy has become more intense, but I am willing to work hard so that I can one day be pain free and have better range of motion.

As a celebration for my return to blogging, I am sharing a very fun and exciting offer from Atria Books.  If you are like me, then you love freebies!  This is one very exciting and beautiful free gift!
