Coffee Dates From Hell Review

Coffee Dates From Hell is another hilarious book I got to read in paperback so I could share it.His same sense of humor is shown in this book plus it also comes in ebook format if that is what you are looking for. Tilberry does explain in the beginning that there are good relationships that have been formed by meeting a person for the first time at a coffee shop. He continues on that this book is about those dates that are all wrong and turn out to be dates from hell.

We start out with people of past history, which I am pretty sure that there were no coffee shops back in some of those eras as there is today. Here is an example: Abraham Lincoln meeting Mary Todd for the first time back in 1839 for coffee, sitting there awkward and nearly messing up the date with a bad first impression to where it could very well have been their last meeting.

Couple other strange connections that are a mixture of people from the past and modern day coffee dates are: Krystal Martin meets King Henry VIII Jimmy Durante meets Frida Kahlo

Then there is the date from hell with Harold Thompsom meets Susie Logan. Harold finds Susie interesting. He has a lot in common with her. Perhaps more then he realizes. After the date is over, Harold is debating on seeing Susie again. But there are some things that have disturb him about Susie. Like Susie's husky laugh and hairy knuckles.

When reading this book about bad dates, we cannot forget about bad coffee shops. Jim Tilberry describes some coffee shops that had closed down shortly after they had opened up and for some good reasons.

We can all use a good laugh. If you are single or no longer looking, this dating humor book will put you in a good mood. You will be glad that you have it to read. Even if you are part of a couple it is a funny book that you can not put down once you pick it up. He has other books out 10 Great Reasons to Become a Vegetarian. He is very reasonable priced at $4 each on Amazon. I plan on reading his other book ASAP and can not wait to see what he does in the future.

Vitamin C Serum 20% with Free Bonus Review

Sano Naturals Vitamin C Serum Review When it comes to skincare products, I am rather picky as I am allergic to many things .I wanted to give it a chance and Sano Naturals is skincare company that acknowledges that whatever you put on your skin inevitably gets absorbed into your body, which is why they use naturally derived, organic ingredients whenever possible. As for the Vitamin C Serum I tried, it’s one of their best sellers, and 96% naturally derived, and primarily organic. Sano Naturals’ products are produced in the USA in a GMP-certified, wind-energy powered facility, but best of all, with no animal testing, and 100% vegan formulas. The serum comes in a dark colored glass bottle, and has a little dropper attached so it is easily applied. Just squeeze the right amount into your palm, then apply it to your face, neck, and back of hands. It is odorless, colorless, and a bit watery, but that does not cause a problem with the application. Now this serum not only has anti-aging antioxidants, but it helps with hyperpigmentation, melasma, wrinkles, and collagen. I love the bottle because you can reuse it to put other oils in after its empty.The best place to get this is on Amazon as you can get the oil and the cream for under $20. I plan on buying more because for the price it makes perfect gifts for all your friends in a gift basket to pamper themselves with.

Dr Teals Bath Salts

I have been needing epspon salts and thought of the the Epsom salts from Dr. Teal's Therapeutic Solutions. I was very happy to get the chance to try as I have had issues falling asleep and love to soak in the tub.By combining benefits of pure Epsom salt (magnesium sulfate) with essential oils, Dr. Teal's products offer an advantage over just soaking in Epsom salts after a hard workout. I got to try the "Comfort and Calm" "Comfort and Calm:" This is a blend of Epsom salts and chamomile oil. Chamomile oil is an anti-inflammatory and anti-bacterial agent with soothing qualities to relieve tension, which makes it ideal for fighting muscle fatigue or soreness. I like to use this soak before bed after a hectic or particularly stressful day or a strenuous workout. "Relax and Relief:" This soak combines Epsom salts with eucalyptus oil and spearmint oil. These are two of my favorite oils to use around the house for cleaning, since they have a fresh scent as well as anti-fungal and anti-bacterial qualities. Whereas I would describe the chamomile bath as relaxing, I think this one is better coined as 'invigorating.' Both eucalyptus and spearmint also offer relief from colds, nausea, and other ailments. This soak was helpful for me when I was dealing with morning sickness. Dr. Teal's also offers two other types of Epsom salts - lavender and amber vanilla - in addition to foaming baths, milk baths, and foot care products. If you are dealing with an injury, the First Aid line of products might be ideal for you. Dr. Teal's has a fragrance-free U.S.P. Epsom salt for muscle tension, as well as an aromatherapy soak that contains rosemary and mint. The soaking solutions have a variety of other applications besides soaking in the bath for twenty minutes, luxurious as that may be. You can also use the bath salts to exfoliate your skin by mixing it with body wash and massaging it into your skin. I have yet to try that way as yet. There were a few factors about these products that were less than perfect. I thought the scent was a bit overwhelming. However, although the fragrance is strong in the bag, it mellows out quite a bit when you add it to your bath water. If you want a fragrance-free version, the First Aid U.S.P. salts might be a better option. Other than that, this is a high-quality product at an affordable price. Not only did it relieve muscular aches and pains for both myself and my boyfriend, but it also made my skin soft and helped me get some much needed relaxation. I also appreciated that it didn't leave any residue in my bathtub to clean up. I plan on getting the other types soon. The best prices I have found is Walmart $5 for a 3 lb bag.

    Eating out Destiny Mall..Syracuse, NY

      I'm going to compare and contrast the service that have received at Destiny that me and my other half have received the last 3 times have been able to get out. Will be talking about the 3 casual dining places as we would rather save for a better eating experience than fast food.

       TGIF-
    The first time we went there we had coupons for free appetizer coupons. So we got separate checks so we could each use one. We got seated at a booth fast and I told the waitress about needing separate checks and then placed our orders. The food took a long time to get there but what we got was great. Mozzarella sticks and Loaded potato skins. I did get the feeling they took their time making the food and checking on us for that reason even though the free food was from a gift given to me. The second time went there was on my anniversary and we never even got to eat there. Got told there was a wait of 15 mins for an almost empty place unless we sat at the bar which is hard with my height and needing a cane. Complained their response was to offer.. Guess what free appetizer cards. No thanks I had wanted to go there for burgers. Not going there again.

      Pizzeria Uno's -
    The first time we went here was after the TGIF attempt fizzled out. We got seated fairly quick and then when I asked about drink specials got told they only had specials at the bar. We order our drinks and after 10 mins she comes back tells us there needs to be a new keg tapped but did not ask if we had been ready to order then walks away. In this time I see my drink sitting up on the bar and it sits there for about 20 mins before I finally get it. She only took my order after I asked to speak to a manager. I then hear her talk about my hair being funny colored as it is red with purple streaks. We finally get our food and the steak tips burnt on the outside,raw on the inside so I wonder how they cooked them. The pizza was perfection though. I am also used to being offered water if I get a drink with my meal or even asked if I want to order another drink. Second trip was a no starter , had to go to get my stepsons birthday gift and decided to get lunch before we went home. Get there the benches outside are full of bigger families and half the place was empty. Got told there was a wait didn't even get offered to sit at the bar here and when b/f asked about 1 of the good 8 empty tables got told they had been taken?? By ghosts I guess but that put them out of our eating.

      Ruby Tuesdays -
    What can I say? I love them for many reasons. The service was great even though the place was fairly full we got seated with no issues. We got burgers and the salad bar. They are the best priced for burgers in the mall plus only place that has a salad bar. I personally love the little cheese biscuits they give you while you wait for your food , plus the salad bar is great and they keep it very clean. The server was nice and kept checking in and the burgers themselves was beautiful. The only slightly sour note was a few teens that walked in to hang out by their family and fries could have been more crispy. Above all this is our fav place to eat for the service, the price and the food.
