I am currently a college student. I have been working on getting my Bachelor’s degree with a Major in English. Lately I have been thinking about changing my major. I have a huge love for Marketing, especially social media marketing. I have always had a knack for it. I think this is because I am one of those few people who uses both sides of their brain equally. I love marketing because it lets me be creative, social, and work with numbers. I love being able to find out how to improve ones social media marketing. There are so many different paths that […]

When Phones Crash…

Posted December 1, 2014 by love2dazzle in Features, Random Thoughts / 0 Comments

Don’t you hate it when your cell phone crashes?! I had some expired netgalley’s on my phone that I still had about a week or two to read before I no longer had access to them. Then the unthinkable happens and my phone crashes. Guess who loses her eARC’s and can’t access them anymore because they are expired? Yes. You guessed right. It was this girl. I was not happy once so over. I feel like throwing the phone and saying “REALLY?!.” I can’t believe that happened. Does anyone have any ideas how to back up their netgalley’s on the cloud.   I try it […]

Postponing a Wedding

Posted November 23, 2014 by love2dazzle in Features, Random Thoughts / 0 Comments

Sometimes in life you have to make decisions that are hard or ones you wish you didn’t have to make. Sometimes the decisions that you make can be difficult but they can turn out alright. My fiance and I recently chose to postpone our wedding. We chose this because we were tired of stressing, tired of trying to figure out how to pay everything, and tired of knowing that there is a deadline to make decisions. My Wedding is being postponed until 2016. We haven’t set a new date yet but I have to say with making this decision I […]

Growing Pains

Posted November 21, 2014 by love2dazzle in Random Thoughts / 0 Comments

I couldn’t come up with a clever title for the post at this point in time so the title will probably get added on later. Right now I am working with the fact that I am trying to plan a wedding. I am trying to find a way to make my blog more enjoyable for readers and continue to do book reviews. When I look at other people’s websites and blogs to see how they keep up with demand and I see that they have several reviews on their websites doing reviews. It isn’t just a one man team like I […]

Wedding Planning Craziness

Posted November 1, 2014 by love2dazzle in Features, Random Thoughts / 0 Comments

I have never planned a wedding before, but I have to say that it is driving me crazy. Everyone wants something different. My fiance wants a big wedding and I want a small one. I feel like we aren’t going to agree on anything. On top of everything I have spent more time trying to plan a wedding and get ideas and I haven’t had a chance to read a book at all. This is very depressing to me!!!!! You would think that trying to plan a day that is all about you would be fun! NO! NO it is […]

Exciting News

Posted October 27, 2014 by love2dazzle in Features, Random Thoughts / 0 Comments

I have some exciting news to share with my followers and fellow bloggers. I am officially engaged. I am planning for a wedding that should be happening next year. What that may mean for my blogging, it means that I will still be active. I am hoping my co-blogger and sister may post more often, but that will be based off of her school schedule. I will definitely still be reading and typing my little fingers away. I will also be doing some wedding planning in between everything. I am very excited and my fiance is very excited. We hope […]

What is Happening?!

Posted October 24, 2014 by love2dazzle in Features, Random Thoughts / 0 Comments

I have read a few books lately that I was less than thrilled about. I was having the hardest time because I really wanted to like these books but I just couldn’t. I was either bored or disappointed in the story. I couldn’t believe how bad these stories seem to be. I feels as if books are being produced just to produce them not because they are of good quality. I want to read books that I enjoy and think they are worthwhile to read. So imagine my disappointment when I spent all of this time on a book that turned out […]

Hey I just wanted to apologize. I am trying to contact people. I just recently moved and so I don’t have internet yet. It was a very fast and unexpected move. If you have reviews that you are waiting for I am trying to get things posted as soon as I can. A lot of my posts can’t be done through my phone. I am trying to contact people who I have tours with to let them know but in case I missed you, I wanted to let you know what is going on. If I miss my date. I apologize. […]

What I want to do in life

What I want to do in life

At the moment my dream is to start my own non-profit organization for missions work in other countries. My main focus is helping children in need when it comes to health, food, clothing, ect. I also want to teach people about God and spread his love to people whom do not have the opportunity to know about his unconditional love. -Ciara Alessandra D’Angeli is in need of an adventure. Tired of her sixteenth-century life in Italy and homesick for her time-traveling cousin, Cat, who visited her for a magical week and dazzled her with tales of the future, Alessandra is […]
