Book Blogger Hop 12/9 -12/15



Happy Friday!! here is this weeks question for the hop:

" What is your best guess that you won't be changing the genres you are currently reading?"

I would say there is a 100 percent chance I won't change the genres I read,  but I will always add more to my reading life. Here are some books from one of my favorite genres: Holiday Romance




12 Days- Holiday Aroma Therapy

Aromatherapy is my saving grace. Especially during the Holidays. My go to company is Aura Cacia. What I love abut them is that they are affordable, available at local stores
 ( CVS, Whole Foods, and Sprouts), and many of them come  already blended.
For me aromatherapy starts and ends with Lavender:
Lavender mixes well wil lots of other oils including these:





There are also really great oil blends that you can apply right to your skin or use a carrier material like an unscented body oil or lotion. I also add Rosemary to unscented hand wash for a nice smell.





And for a hoiday state of mind there is Peppermint:


Hope you give these amazing scents a try this season!

My family never participated in the Black  Friday Madness but we always: 
                          Put Up Our Christmas Tree:



Visit The Hallmark Store For a New Ornament


In the past few years I added another post Thanksgiving tradition, I visit Cost Plus World Market for their yearly giveaway:




In the past they have given away limited edition ornaments, the past few years however the have given Downton Abbey Coffee mugs. I'm Excited to see what this years giveaway is.



                                  Seasonal Musts



I also look forward to seeing a version of The Nutcracker during the holidays and maybe even adding another one to my collection:





Movie Marathons



Like during Halloween when I binge on scary movies, I love watching Holiday films as well. The Saturday after Thanksgiving is one of my favorite days to see a few films, as well as Christmas Eve.
