I am so grateful for the opportunity to have been approached by one of my favorite bloggers, Ruth Soukup, of Living Well Spending Less, about her first published book, How To Blog For Profit (Without Selling Your Soul). I have been following her blog for a long time and she is truly a great woman. I started following her on her sister site, Saving Well Spending Less, when I was learning all about extreme couponing. Ruth does it all as a wife, mother and business woman and I knew that her book would be worth reading.

Wedding Dreams

A Motivational Photography Book Review

Wedding Dreams The Lovely Photog

I’m always on the search for a good photography book that inspires my next photo shoot. There are plenty of great books like that around and Wedding Dreams A Motivational Photography Book, is a great book for inspiration and quotes.

This book features beautiful, soft images of weddings and with each picture comes a quote. Although the book is short and the images are simple, this book can be used as a reference for personalization of cards, nuptials, or poems.

If you love photography, Wedding Dreams A Motivational Photography Book, is a good start to finding some photography inspiration.

Self Confidence E-Book Review

E Book Review Self Confidence The Lovely Photog

I love reading self help books and I have a pretty good library of different varieties of them. When I had the opportunity to read this E-Book Self Confidence (How To Overcome Shyness, Worry and Boost Your Self Esteem), I was pretty excited because I’ve always had a bit of a struggle with this. I was not disappointed in reading this book. It has a lot of great points and tips to becoming more confident. Some of the tips in the book are pretty straight forward and sometimes obvious, but the author has a way of breaking down every aspect of boosting your confidence, which could benefit most people. I would especially recommend this read to a younger audience, teenage aged to young adult because it’s geared toward someone who has no idea on where to start in being confident without hesitation in life. There are a few grammatical issues in the book, but as an overall review the points in the book are worth the read.

Online Description:

In Self Confidence – How To Overcome Shyness, Worry And Boost Your Self-Esteem you will find out proven steps and strategies you can start applying instantly, in order to build up your confidence as well as your self esteem.

Hugo The Happy Starfish-Book Series Review

Hugo Magic Words Hugo The Secret to Happiness

I was very happy to be approached to review a children’s book series, featuring Hugo The Happy Starfish. I read Hugo- Magic Words and Hugo-The Secret to Happiness.

Both books in this series features a starfish in the sea and teaches children about life lessons and manners.

Online Description:

Through his adventures, Hugo learns many valuable lessons of character, life skills, and ecological alertness – all amid the backdrop of a magical underwater world and mystical islands.

In Hugo, children, parents, and educators will discover a lovable and engaging role model with whom they can identify. Each book offers a themed vocabulary to introduce the Spanish language to the reader. Each book also comes with a number of worksheets which are downloadable at no cost on our website.

I highly recommend this book series for children 5 and up. My daughter was thoroughly excited about the pictures and the different characters in the story, but since she’s only 2 she could not benefit from the books story line. As she gets older, this book will definitely be of help to her 🙂
