Everyone In LA Is An Asshole - Book Review and Giveaway



Book Overview:

LA is a beast. A city that swallows most with its glamour and glitz.

Not Sarah Fuller though.

Stubborn and relentless, Sarah refuses to be changed by her surroundings. Often, she takes a cynical approach, judging the world around her, though never taking anything too seriously.

Thrown back into the dating arena in her late thirties, Sarah encounters brand new challenges.

Readers will laugh out loud at the adventures and mishaps this sassy protagonist gets herself into. She explores LA life, seeing it through her unique lens.

Hair extensions, goat yoga, socialites and all the strangeness that comes out of LA weave together in this crazy, episodic adventure.

Can you handle the absurdities? 


My Review:

Written by author Sarah Fuller, Everyone In LA Is An Asshole takes a satirical look at how the general population of LA behaves and the stereotypes the city beholds.  Sarah writes about trends and fads she's been roped into, what to do and what not to do when setting up a profile for a date, and co-parenting with an ex.  Sarah makes as much fun of herself as she does everyone else.  She doesn't cross the line with offensiveness, but sometimes teeter-totters on the edge of said line.  I imagine that if I were to meet the author in person, she and I would become fast friends.  She redeems her sarcasm and taunting tone in the end when she describes what makes LA so great.  


Win It!

One person will win a paperback book copy of Everyone In LA Is An Asshole.

A Water Fight Always Goes Good With A Cookout

Erica and Ryli

I swear, I've had more people over to my house in the last three months than I ever have.  I'm totally not complaining; Just have to be on point with keeping the place clean.  Jason and I moved into our first home.  Well, not technically our first.  But the first one that we've purchased together.

Jason's not so sure when he's gonna be hit next!

On one of those occasions, we had a good friend over with her three kids.  The water guns and water hose came out, and it was game on!  

Better watch out for these two!

I believe in a God that hears prayers and answers them. I've witnessed the miraculous gift of answered prayer. And, I want to pray for you. I've started weekly Power of Prayer post every Thursday. We are now on week 183. If you are needing prayer in an area of your life, please leave a comment and I'll commit to pray for your need or request. You can be as general or as specific as you like. Whether it be for healing, salvation, finances, emotions, or another area of life, I'd like to lift it up in prayer.

You used to live in sin, just like the rest of the world, obeying the devil, the commander of the powers in the unseen world. He is the spirit at work in the hearts of those who refuse to obey God.

Good Idea Drinks - Flavored Sparkling Water Review


I'll admit that soda is one of my vices.  I generally drink 32 oz .of it a day.  Although I'm not sure that I'll completely give it up, I have been trying to cut down on the sugary drink.  My husband has given it up all together and has been taking to other beverages to sustain him throughout the day.

I was recently introduced to Good Idea, a beverage company that makes flavored sparkling water.  Good Idea is an alternative to sugary sodas and energy drinks.

back of can

The Swedish Sugar Buster contains sparkling water and is the only mealtime beverage on the US market that contains a significant amount of the essential mineral chromium, proven to make weight loss both healthier and more sustainable and balancing blood sugar levels.

This naturally flavored sparkling water contains a blend of five amino acids and chromium. All natural, completely un-sweetened with zero sugars, zero sweeteners, zero calories. The direct benefits of drinking Good Idea with a meal include avoiding the slump (getting less tired after a meal), avoiding sugar cravings that often appear after eating carb-heavy food.  It actively helps the body handle the sugar spikes following ordinary meals.



Good Idea drinks are available in three flavors:  Lemon Lime, Orange Mango and Dragon Fruit.  I actually like all three flavors, with Orange Mango being my favorite.  I do wish the flavors were a little stronger and more noticeable on my taste buds but, other than that, I've found Good Idea drinks to be a, well, good idea for a refreshing beverage that doesn't cause sugar overload.  Each can is 12 oz. and the bold colors of the packaging are eye-popping.


Which flavor of Good Idea would you like to try?
