I couldn’t think of a better way to welcome 2012 then getting to plan an unexpected breakfast meet up with a friend and that would be Tina from Bookshipper. This was literally planned at the very last minute ie the night before.
I am so happy that we were able to get together on very short notice and that there was a restaurant open today, New Years Day. Tina introduced me to this great little restaurant awhile ago and its a great little place. You get alot of food for your dollar value. Plus you actually walk away quite full.
Its always nice to get together and hang out with friends especially ones who share your love of books. We talked about the holidays, books, NYC/BEA and of course other things book related and not book related. Its hard to believe that almost this time in 5 months we will be getting ready to head to the big apple again.
No meet up would be complete without an exchange of books (in my case) and magazines (in Tina’s case). Tina graciously passed on the following books to me:
-Pretty Crooked by Elisa Ludwig . This is a debut novel for 2012. Its scheduled to be released March 2012.
-Freshman Year & Other Unnatural Disasters by Meredith Zeitlin. I believe this is also another debut novel for 2012 and its scheduled to be released in March as well.
-Love & Leftovers by Sarah Tregay and this is another 2012 debut novel. This is coming out this month.
They all sound like fantastic books and I am excited to read them.
Tina also gave me a belated little birthday present. I love Yves Rocher products and this is my other obsession next to books that is. I was super excited to get this because they are products I have yet to try and now I am exited to try them.
Inside the package was:
-Almond Nourishing Moisturizer for Dry to very dry skin and I have used it because in the winter time I suffer from very dry skin. I think this is one of my new favorite products. I loved the smell of it and the feel of it. I noticed a difference after a few applications. Something I would definitely buy in a full size.
-Olive Oil shower gel. I have used this almost every other day in the shower and I love it. I will be going to Yves Rocher to get a full size product very soon. It lathered really well and left a nice scent on the body.
-Oriental velvety-skin scrub. I have used this on my hands and feet and I loved the results after a few times of using it. I think this would be something I would get a full size product of.
Thanks so much Tina for the books and the little Yves Rocher goodie bag.
Happy New Year everyone.
