Taking Time For Yourself + Some Ideas

Wednesday, February 1, 2017

Hey guys! It's been so ridiculously long since I posted on here but I started working full time and I have tons of books to read for my college class that I'm taking. I've had basically no time for anything.

(now disclaimer that this post will probably be a bit jumbled because I just had an anxiety attack and I'm just writing how things come out without any major edits.)

I have learned over the years that time for myself, where I can do things that I want to do instead of have to do, is mandatory. I'm absolutely not one of those people who can just go-go-go and work all the time. I have NO IDEA how people can do that. Even working 9-5 Monday - Friday is honestly a bit much for me. When I don't find time for myself I shut down. Crying, anxiety attacks, etc. It's just not good.

Also my boss sucks and he's the reason for tonight's anxiety attack so there's that.

Mental health is SO important!

So here are some idea's for things to do for yourself:


  1. Read a book (that doesn't HAVE to be read for something)
  2. Take a bubble bath (okay so I've never used a bath bomb but those things look heavenly and I think I need some)
  3. Browse Pinterest
  4. Watch Youtube videos (funny, cute, vlogs, etc. So much to choose from)
  5. Organize something (desk, room, etc)
  6. Go for a walk.
  7. Do some Yoga
  8. Write in a journal
  9. Color (My current favorite coloring book is this one!)
  10. Cook
  11. Bake
  12. Draw
  13. Stretch
  14. Write a letter
  15. Learn about something you're interested in
  16. Take some photos
  17. Play with your pet
  18. Watch a movie
  19. Catch up on or start a new TV show
  20. Paint Your Nails (why not have a home spa day? Bath, nails, facial?)
  21. Take a Nap
  22. Find some new music
  23. Exercise (endorphins are awesome. Plus I know I feel so much better when I am regularly exercising)
  24. Learn a new skill
  25. Lay down and listen to music

So this is all I have off the top of my head right now but I would LOVE for you guys to add some of your own ideas down in the comments!

The Final Book of the Book of Delmar Series is Out!!!

Wednesday, November 9, 2016

You know when you're like totally ready for bed and have your laptop put away and then go "OMG I FORGOT" uh yeah, that's what just happened to me. I should have had this post up hours ago. uhg.

ANYWAYS, The very last book of the Book of Delmar Series by the amazing Heidi Peltier came out TODAY! The book is called Home and I cannot wait to read it.

Look at this sweet cover:


What is the book about? Read on.

Her son has been kidnapped. Her enraged husband blames her and walks out. The sharks are swarming around the island. Bombshells continue to fall on Queen Terra in this explosive final installment of The Book of the Delmar series. She must call upon all of her resources to guide her island and its people through this firestorm, but how can she possibly heal her wounded heart? 

The search for Prince Mako is on, and the question of how to appease the beast remains, as always, unanswerable...or is it? Join the Delmars as they fight to fulfill the terms of their contract to the legendary beast and hopefully, find peace at last.

Doesn't it sound great?! You can purchase a kindle version of the book on Amazon using this link. It's only $2.99 to buy it or if you have kindle unlimited (as I wish I did...) you can read it for free. Such a great deal!


Keep up with Heidi and her work at the following links:

The Delmar Shark Chronicles is Now The Book of the Delmar!

Tuesday, August 16, 2016

Hey guys!
 One of my favorite book series that I have reviewed The Delmar Shark Chronicles is being rereleased TODAY under a new name! The Series is now known as The Book of the Delmar which sounds super cool. Book one is now called The Legend of Shark Island!

Is there a new description to go with the new name? You know it!
The Royal Delmar family is bound by an oath to protect the people and the island of Isola di Squalo.  A legendary beast ensures they do.
Dylan Murphy only came to the Mediterranean to study sharks, but an early-run in with Princess Terra Delmar destroys his plans and entangles him in her family's mystery. A simple swim off the island's coast puts him face to face with a giant shark and changes his destiny.  The return of the beast means trouble for the Delmars. How far will Dylan go to help them?

And you all know how much I love to make you wait for a cover reveal... Click Read More below!
