Book Review #1:Rachel Hollis

Hey hey guys, I am doing something a little bit different these coming months where I am going to introduce you to my world of reading. Now, I will admit, I have not read a book all the way through since 50 Shades of Grey Part 1 came out but I have always wanted to read interesting works by other writers. The book I am going to review this month is a book written by a great women who loves to help other women get out of their way and see what the potential that they already have. Growing from tragedy and being able to be successful in life with some bumps along the way is real-life for her and she wants you to know-ITs Normal! Introducing a lady I highly respect for her courage and empowerment of other: Rachel Hollis

I read this book from cover to cover and was amazed at the similiarities we have. I thought I was the only one thinking and going through it. For those of you who do not know who Rachel Hollis is, she is a Mom of 3 boys and a 1 girl, wife to Dave Hollis and founder of a lifestyle website TheChicSite.com and Ceo of her own Media company. She has alot of followers online via instagram, facebook, youtube etc. She is a woman who likes to tell it like it is, she encourages, enlightens and works to help others acheive the same sense of confidence she exudes throughout everything she does with the help of God.

I am going to review this book in 4 parts:

  • Why did I pick this book to read?
  • What part of the book, really hit home for me: (ex. made me cry or have a aha moment)?
  • What is one thing I took away from the book that I will change in my life?
  • How would I rate this book out of 5 stars?

Rachel Hollis: Girl, Wash Your Face

  • I picked this book because it came highly recommended online. I was curious as to what washing my face meant so I said this might be a great book just by the title, so I bought it. I never realized when I opened it, I would never be able to put it down. It spoke to me so well. Everything, well almost everything, was so similiar to my life I couldn’t believe that this nice young lady had gone through all that and still managed to be a great women waking up everyday helping people with her wisdom and lending a helping hand.
  • A part in the book that really hit home for me was Chapter 15: I Will Never Get Past This- when she talked about her family. Not being as close as she wanted to be after the tragedy just trying to salvage what was left of her relationships and picking up the peices and moving forward in church and counseling, which is always the best medicine. I cried through the whole chapter.
  • One thing she stressed so much in her book about is being happy with who you are. It doesnt matter what you didnt accomplish or who hurt you in your past, you are responsible for your own happiness. Never let others believe you are never good enough to try new things or pick up where you left off with years ago. Always try to be you and be happy for you not anyone else. I realized that in trying to make others happy all at once, I have made myself unhappy. I have decided to run away from toxic or negative things and let others be unhappy by themselves and take care of me first. Be there after I am taken care of then console others.
  • 5- star rating from me for original content, very personable and uplifting!

Looking forward to reading her other book:

Girl, Stop Apoligizing

   First Celebrity crush….really has changed over the years with all the new actors making their way to television and radio. I didn’t have any celebrity crushes as a child…I know that sounds weird but for some reason no one person gave me that spark. I got older and then that is when I started watching movies and I got my list.

And here it is…..

IMG_20190804_020222[1]

Oohh…lala…My list starts from left to right with Johnny Depp, I fell in love with him in Pirates in the Caribbean.  Next up, Terrence Howard, I fell for his spunk in Best Man.  Mr. Ray Liotta an Irishmen, Italian and gangster in of my favorite movies GoodFellas, he was gorgeous.  Last but not least, Superman himself, Dean Cain, I loved him as Clark/Superman and also in the movie Out of Time with Denzel Washington.

As much as I loved all these guys then, right now I’ve got my eye on only one crush

Robert Downey Jr.

Fell for him while he was doing Iron-man and then he kept going with the Avengers.  

  Next up is Celebrity girl crushes…

Jillian Michaels – I idolize her for her strength and courage.  She represents a women who has proven through it all that women can overcome how they feel about themselves and how the world judges them based on their looks and sexuality.  

Michelle Rodriguez I have admired her since the Fast and Furious.  She is a bad ass on screen and a soft feminine energy off-screen with a caring spirit.

Both ladies are beautiful and sexy in their own unique way.

Sorry, I didn’t have any singer celebrity crushes……the 90’s were a very confusing time..lol.

Well that’s all I got for now….

  Yummy, Yummy….time for my 10 favorite foods!! I don’t know about you but food is just so good especially when it is prepared just the way you like it!! I love food and I wish I can eat some of these things that are on my list but because I have gotten older and systems aren’t working like they used to, I have to minimize or eliminate these foods from my diet.  I hate it. You watch everyone else eat it freely and not get sick but me totally different story.  So, without further ado, I am going to tell you what my dream meal would be if I could have it all at once….here it goes..

  1. Pizza Image result for free stock images of pepperoni pizza      My favorite is Little Cesears Extra-Most Bestest with double pepperoni!!! I don’t eat it a lot now anymore….that pesky heartburn.
  2. Hamburgers Image result for free stock images of hamburgers          My favorite is the BIG MAC from McDonald’s -2 all beef patties, cheese, pickles and special sauce…they also had the triple for a hot minute…OMG…drooling right now…lol.
  3. Ice creamImage result for free stock images of icecream           I love ice cream whether it is hard or soft, flavored or plain, on a cone or in a bowl.  My favorite flavor is butter pecan.
  4. Spaghettinoodle-clipart-spaghetti-bolognese-697605-4654121[1]           I learned how to make spaghetti as my first lesson in cooking by my dad.  We used ground beef back then but now we use ground turkey and add all the peppers and onions to it. When I was learning to make the sauce we used Ragu…needless to say we couldn’t use the other half because I put it in the cabinet instead of fridge..oops my bad.  I don’t fill my plate all the way up like I did as a kid…I think my stomach shrank…lol.  
  5. Fried Chicken food-2202359__340[1]  “Love that chicken from POPEYES”   There is something about chicken and how there are so many ways to make it.  I like it fried, baked, barbecued and even canned. 
  6. Eggs1516313382596288659free-clipart-scrambled-eggs.med[1]                                                                            All I need is a couple pieces of bacon and some toast…lol  I love scrambled eggs and even omelets made with all kinds of ingredients including cheese, mushrooms, choice of meat and peppers.
  7. Macaroni and cheese with baked beans

    This here a meal in itself.  I usually eat the Kraft Mac and cheese with baked beans together and this is so delicious. 

  8. FruitsImage result for free stock images of fruits                                                                            Fruit is a great substitute for anything in sweet snack category.  Most of the fruit I eat in blended into a smoothie which is so good for a quick breakfast or lunch.  My favorite fruits are bananas, pineapples, mango, strawberries and grapes.  I just recently had to cut some fruit from my diet because of hot flashes…which are no joke. 
  9. Polish Boys030_54_990x660[1] The ultimate hot dog on a bun, with polish sausage, french fries, coleslaw, and a grilles special choice of barbecue sauce….mouth is watering again…lol.  I was introduced to these in my hometown of Cleveland, Ohio and when I tell you they make some awesome polish boys…I ain’t lying.  I used to eat 2 in one sitting, now I have to eat one…that pesky heartburn. 
  10. Greens and Potato Salad

        Okay, so, last but not least…yes it is a vegetable.  I love potato salad and collard greens together.  The potato I make from scratch with potatoes, eggs, mustard and paprika.  For some reason, the store bought salad doesn’t do it for me.  

 

  Well, that’s all I got for you on my 10 favorite foods.  I know while you were reading this you went into the kitchen or thought about getting one of these items for dinner to eat.
