Book Tour: Blood Debt

As the year has come to an end, I give you an end of the year new book for you to read! I feel so lucky to be part of these book tours and show people that reading isn't just for academic purposes, but it also has the power to make you a little happier. 

As always this book tour comes thanks to the girls over at Romantic Maidens Book Tours, so go check them out and find out which other books are about to go on tour! 

Title: Blood Debt
Series: Touched #1
Author: Nancy Straight
Release Date: July 13, 2012
Pages: 293


Her whole life, it had just been the two of them. Before her mother’s last breath, she gave Camille the information she had craved her entire life: the identity of her father. Daring to contact him, Camille was welcomed by an entire family she never knew existed. But nothing comes without a price, as she discovers when her family claims a legendary heritage tracing back to a Centaur touched by Zeus.

As she learns the secrets of her Centaur bloodline, she is drawn into a forbidden love with Drake. Her family acknowledges her life may be the blood debt required to pay for her mother’s transgressions. The same person who once held her mother captive, and forced her into decades of hiding, now controls Camille. Her only chance is to seek a piece of her mother’s past that will win her freedom and the life she desperately desires.

About the Author:

Nancy StraightNancy was born in Sioux City Iowa, left the cold of the Midwest in 1991 and only returns to see family in the summer time. She spent ten years traveling the world as a US Marine and settled in rural SC with her husband and two children.

She enjoys reading all types of Paranormal and Young Adult literature – so long as there is a love story.  She loves Starbucks’ White Mocha Latte and Mountain Dew, (but not together). She has a lead foot so she sets cruise control when she drives, even in 25 MPH zones.   Nancy almost never wins when she plays Angry Birds, but keeps her 8 year old close, so he can clear the hard levels for her.  She grew up on a farm and is opposed to eating fresh chicken (not opposed to meat - just opposed to any meat that was alive a few hours before lunch).  Nancy has written five Young Adult / New Adult novels and can be found nightly on Facebook and Twitter.

Calvin Klein

This post is going to be a little different, I will have a section in Spanish and one in English due to the fact that I have awesome news to my fellow Peruvian (specially the ones living in Lima) friends.

Esto es demasiado nuevo para mi. Creo que es la primera vez que escribo en Español desde que empeze con este blog. Se siente diferente, pero es un sentimiento mas pegado hacia lo bueno e interesante. Hoy les tengo una super noticia a mis amigos y compatriotas Peruanos. Calvin Klein llega a Ripley!

Ellos estan ubicando sus productos en los locales de San Borja (Nuevo Centro Comercial "La Rambla"), Jockey Plaza y Miraflores.

Calvin Klein tiene una tienda en el exclusivo Boulevard del Jockey Plaza, y me parece impresionante que Lima este empezando a ponerse a la altura de las grandes capitales de la moda, empezando por el LIFweek que se hace ya anualmente desde hace dos años y que trae un gran aporte a nuestra sociedad en lo que es cuestion de vestimenta, belleza y grandes tendencias.

Esto me emociona mucho, porque soy Peruana y veo que el país avanza cada dia mas y me hace querer trabajar arduamente para lograr aportar algo, por mas pequeño que parezca, pero de a pocos se puede lograr algo grande.

Wow, writing in spanish is a lot harder than I thought it would be at the moment. I apologize if I've had some grammar mistakes, it's just that my whole life i've been exposed to English and with the globalization issues we have to deal with daily is just easier for me. I don't know why, that's just how I came about.

So Calvin Klein is launching in Ripley and it is huge news! They already have a store in the open boulevard at our big mall and it is so nice to have it more available. I love it, love it, love it!

I hope you enjoy the shopping and go there ASAP!

Social Media-ting

Happy Sunday!

For every word written in one post, people make a connection with what you "say" within the media. And for that reason I just wanted to remind you that you can connect with me via the different social media platforms, like Facebook, Pinterest, Twitter, and most recently, Instagram.

It's a great way to keep in touch with your friends and I feel we are a big happy family <3





Be sure to check those out ! A little reminder is not bad from time to time :)

Spread the season's love!

Today i have some news! I got, finally, my iPhone 5 and i am in love with it. That, was on friday, the rest of the days i have been a little crazy decorating the house and finishing up the christmas shopping! A little late I know, but being busy is just draibubg the energy out of my, i don't know what is up with decemvet that i seen to be busier than ever!

I might seem a little off with posting ñ, and I truly am sorry for it! Every little thing is just making me crazy and getting ready for the holidays and some parties and prepping is just too much for me :( i feel extra tired lately

Buy i really hope to finish up with everything and put up some posts for you guys cuz i miss it! It is an aspect that feels neglected and i just don't like that feeling

Right now i leave you with a picture of my small christmas tree that is in our family room

Hope you are all having fun and enjoyinh getting ready for the holidays!

PS. This was written someday during last week in my iPhone, but for some reason it didn't get posted till today. So the events happen a while ago! 
love you all!

Top knots, messy buns

I feel that they are getting a little too over rated. But who am  I kidding? I just love them, specially for summer time.

I have seen a lot of these being rocked in red carpets, in the streets, by celebs, commoners and even people that might go by like wallflowers (have you seen the movie or read the book? i have not but I want to read the book) 

They can be classy, they can be toned down, they are super high and sometimes just not that much. They are versatile to whatever occasion you need to wear them. And now that Christmas parties are here you can wear them as differently as you wish. 

Here are some of my favorite top knots and messy buns 

Lovely top knot.


cat eye and messy bun


How cute is the puppy?! 

I hope you guys enjoyed this post!

I am seriously the worst at technology. My IT teacher always found me to be a headache for her, I just wasn't the most avid learner and if I know how to use computer is because I had to in order for me not to be left behind! hahaha I hated to learn but it was so necessary.

Now, I am teaching myself how to use this GIMP program which is a sort of photoshop. So far. No advance. I'm just not improving at all. I am a mess I know.

But luckily there is a lot of tutorials over the internet that are soooo helpful, I have been watching a couple and I feel it has been great.

I can't wait to get better with this program and improve my quality of pictures for you too see here! I just can't wait! I have my whole summer to make improvements to the site!

I am happy dancing right now!

Writers Block and a little rambling

Don't you just hate it? I do. And this is one of those days that are just too hectic and hard for me to get some inspiration. 

The passing of good and loving people always get me in that way. Too many people passed away this couple of months that I just can't help but realize that life is too short. But as death comes, life must go on and the people who are already in a better place will want us to continue until the time comes when we are going to be reunited. 

I think writing from the heart is better, right now I was all "what should I write that make people feel better?" but in the end, I write for myself too. This is what is going in right now, my mind is oblivious to any other thing at the moment and I just want to remember the loved ones that are already in eternity. 

This is an ode to them, this is what my heart says to write and this is what makes today a better day. 

These past months have been very hard. Loved ones, dear ones, joyful ones have left us. Pretty suddenly we come to realize how different life is, how hard it gets, how the fun moments are sometimes outweighed by those that make us tear up and cry our eyes out. But we have to know, really know, that no matter where they are, no matter how they left, they are still there. We are all still there. In 
soul and thought. 

As long as we remember those good moments we had spent, that have drawn smiles on our faces, that we have drawn them on others and laughed so hard, those are the moments we can relive. They are not gone, they can't be erased. They haven't left, they are still there. 

“If you have a warm and caring heart, you're loved ones will ensure you never depart. For long after you've turned that final page you'll still be right there on center stage.” 
― Stanley Victor Paskavich

I wrote this a couple of days ago on facebook, I hope you like it.

Very Merry Monday

After weeks of being very little caring of my blog and after a very good weekend rest from finals week, I am back! Vacations are so good, 3 months of doing nothing but enjoying the sun, the beach, writing on here and more!

picture from here

I know it is a little late, most of you have already started gift shopping for the Holidays but I might be posting some last minute gift guides or something. This season is just so nice and fun, plus the decor brings so much joy!

I hope you all have a great start of the week!

lots of love,

Fashionably Forgetful!

First Day of Finals:

Went great! except for the fact that I felt miserable when i got to the first exam and came to the realization that I had forgotten my whole pencil case! yeah...not a great thing....I asked for someone to lend me a pen so i only had a pen. just that. ONE pen, not a corrector nor a highlighter! So what I did as soon as I got out of the exam I went running to the stores outside campus and bought a pen and a corrector! at least the 2 basic tools I needed for my ethics final.

So mission accomplished! I wrote my exam and did not had to ask for a pen again! yeey !

more on my finals adventures later.

count: 2 down 5 remaining!
