~ Deborah Needleman (Author), Sara Ruffin Costello (Author), Dara Caponigro (Author) This is an absolute must! I love this book and the magazine was fabulous back when it was still being published. As a matter of fact, Domino Magazine was the whole inspiration behind my blog! Gosh! I remember receiving every brand new issue and feeling like it was Christmas twelve times a year!! This book was published shortly before Domino closed its doors and it is well worth the $20.00! Enjoy and treasure every page! I know I do.

MANAGING YOUR CAREER
A great little handbook to help you become better at, well, managing you! I was attracted to the adorable cover art, but once I actually opened it up and read a few pages, I decided those Harvard folks are pretty clever and have a lot of helpful information I have applied to my life professionally and personally!
THE SECRET- book (HARDCOVER)
This book is truly life-changing. It teaches you to attract positivity in your life rather than negativity applying the “Law of Attraction.” I will have to say, it really does work, but it takes a while to get in the habit of not using not! If that makes sense? I read it over and over and each time learn something I didn’t before, but some people prefer the DVD. You take your pick, but try it- it is well worth the while!
A personal favorite that reminds you how important brotherly love is in everyone’s life. At first glance, one might think that this book is a romantic novel, but it is a beautiful work of art by Vanni, utilizing different shapes and patterns of paper and color to create a mood and sense of what the book is not only literally saying, but the way the character is feeling in the book. You will just have to see for yourself.Click on the book below to purchase on Amazon.
