Things My Pets Hate Challenge Day 3

Hey Nerdy Peeps! As you know I love my pets just like they were my children. So, I thought I’d share what they hate with you. Now, I’m going to try to make this funny, so let’s get on with things my pets hate for challenge day three.


Things my pets hate…

They hate pictures. Every time I point the camera at them they rush off, turn away, or look at me like I’m crazy.

When I’m doing anything remotely important, such as writing or reading they can’t stand it. I either get interrupted by “hey, pay attention to me” looks, or in one case my little pup just sits on my book!

My bigger pup absolutely hates thunderstorms. He will either hide in the closet, or in my lap during any sort of storms.

The little guy hates sharing his toys.

If I’m in bed, they hate when I tell them no and to get down.

But most of all they hate when we are gone for any amount of time.


Now, let me tell you two things they love. Naps and cuddles!

Hello New Book and Gorgeous Cover

Hey Nerdy Peeps! This cover is hot! Hello new book and gorgeous cover from the lovely Elle Wardhello new book and gorgeous cover

Book Blurb!

Amelia Fox is a hugely successful romance novelist whose single deepest desire is a good book and a long hot bubble bath. When book sales drop and her publishing deal falls into jeopardy, she agrees to re-invent herself writing erotica. She has absolutely no idea what she’s letting herself in for.

Dillon James is devastatingly handsome, charismatic and a pleasure-seeking playboy who also happens to own Eden, one of London’s most exclusive sex clubs. Proud of whom he is and what he does, nothing scares him – until Amelia Fox comes to his club to research her next book.
As soon as he sets eyes on her, he knows that she doesn’t belong in his world.

Regardless, he wants her in his bed.

Avoiding him isn’t an option and she becomes drawn further into his world, unable to control the overwhelming desire he stirs within. Awakening deep and addicting feelings that she never knew possible.

Knowing he’ll shatter her heart – can she deny herself unknown pleasure, that only he can satisfy.

Weekend Recuperation with Lots of Self Care

Hey Nerdy Peeps! Last week was a doosey, and I wanted to stay in bed all day and do absolutely nothing. Depression was suffocating and anxiety held me down like a rock. Yeah, it was not a pretty week for me or my mind. So, I recuperated with a weekend of self-care.


4 Tips for Self-Care Weekend Recuperation

So, Jessie what exactly did you do? Well, let me tell you.

Tip #1: Take lots of naps.

Naps were a much-needed thing to get my mind back where I needed it to be, and when I woke up this morning I felt great. My mind was back on track and I felt relaxed and ready to conquer the week.

I read a lot and it was the best thing ever! I finished one book and got pretty far on the other one I have been reading. My current read is Instructions for a Second-Hand Heart by Tamsyn Murray, and let me tell you this it is absolutely the best book I have read in a while. Just wait for the review!

Tip #3: I did some painting. 

No joke, I painted four canvases in a matter of a couple of hours and I loved it. It turned out to be very relaxing and took away quite a bit of stress. I’m going to start stocking up on canvases and paints. I can’t wait to see what other things I can paint.

Bad picture, I know! It was the only one I had.
