Fresh - The Perfume Store for Perfume Addicts

Ever since a I was a little girl, I always want to smell good. Who wants to smell bad anyway? I like collecting perfumes, usually when friends and family ask me what can they bring for me coming back from out of the country, I would tell them to bring me a perfume. Any brand and any scent would do but one of my favorite is my cool water for woman I like it because of its light scent and its freshness.

I must admit I am one of those Perfume addicts and as one of those I always consider the following factors when I buy one:

First is the Scent, off course when it is just a gift from a friend or a family I usually do not mind but if I would be buying one for my self I would like it to be something fresh and light. Oceanic, Floral and Fruity or some of my favorite scents

Second is the Brand, yes, as I will add it on my collection I want it to be on a unique brand

Last but sometimes the most important for me is the Price, unfortunately, I am one of those who does not spend much but does not want to settle for an imitation. I do not have that much to spend for my perfume collection, but I do not want to resort to buying a knock-off or a cheap “smells just like the real thing” brand.
I am also one of those look for great deals until I heard about the...

Death, in human form, or Johnny as he calls himself, steals Lyndon's prayers for a proper reunion between the two and instead forces him to face a new and much darker reality.

So why is she alone in Montauk in the middle of December? During the cold, stark days, Julie throws herself into capturing her artistic vision for an upcoming solo show, yielding works of deep passion and instinct; at night, she restlessly taps away at her computer, plagued by uncertainty about the impending trajectories of her life. When a prickly but brilliant composer-musician knocks on her door with an odd request, Julie ushers in a series of events that will bring her in contact with her buried hopes and fears, and force her to make choices she couldn't have fathomed. At once shocking and wise, In Montauk is a now-familiar story turned inside-out by a main character...

Happy New Year 2013 - A New Year's Prayer

Happy New Year 2013

A New Year's Prayer

Lord, this year I want to change,
and I've said that in the past.
but now my prayer is different
'cause I understand at last.

I wanted my own way before,
I ignored your loving plans.
But now I'm putting everything
into your nail-scarred hands.

I promise to obey you
out of gratitude and love.
I won't be giving orders
to my Father up above.

I finally realize the truth
and so I've changed my prayer.
The safest place for me to be
is in your gentle care.

Please be my shepherd, Jesus,
that's all I ask of you.
In good times and in bad this year,
Take my hand and lead me through.


 --Jack Zavada 

I just want to thank the Lord our God for all the blessings that we have received and for all the blessing in disguise. I know it has been hard for some of us but still we have to thank Him for everything and to think that we are still breathing up to this moment. 

I also want to thank everyone from visiting my blog even though I am hiatus for sometime. I would like to say sorry to everyone that I hurt and have done wrong knowing and unknowingly.  Goodbye 2012 and thank you for the good and bad memories...

Welcome 2013, let us all hope and pray for a great year ahead...

Happy New Year !!!


God Bless Us All !!!
