$100.00 Madison Reed Gift Card Giveaway

Ladies, it’s time to give ourselves the gift of beauty. With the holiday season here, looking our best is so important. I know that if my hair is a mess, I don’t feel pretty—especially if my roots are showing.

For the last four years, I have been coloring my hair at home with Madison Reed. Their professional-grade color produces the most even, vibrant looking results without stripping or frying your hair in the process. Finding your ideal shade, from the lightest blond to the darkest black, is easy with Find Your Match. (Their suggestion for me, 6NGV Tuscany Brown, worked perfectly.)


Each color kit contains a protective cap, barrier cream, cleansing wipes, two pairs of gloves, and color enhancing shampoo and conditioner that’s free from sulfates, parabens, and gluten.

The color itself contains nutrients like Argan oil, keratin, and ginseng root to strengthen and protect hair, and doesn’t have any scary stuff like ammonia, resorcinol, PPD, and/or parabens that can cause allergic reactions and sensitivity.

Because I love Madison Reed so much, I want to share it with my readers. Those of you who color will love it and for those who don’t, they offer a full line of hair care products for washing, moisturizing and styling.

One winner will receive a $100.00 Madison Reed gift card. Be sure to enter by 12/30/18. Good luck to all!

Update on 10/28: Congratulations to winner Sharon S.

Ultimate Women’s Fiction Book Giveaway (4 Winners!)

There is no genre of fiction that I enjoy more than “Women’s Lit,” meaning literature that focuses on brave and empowered heroines, especially if these special characters are also Jewish. 

In the past, I have shared my enthusiasm for Susan Sofayov’s books and how much they mean to me. Her latest work, Jerusalem Stone, is the ultimate Women’s novel. Inspired by events and travels that took place in her own life, Susan has shaped them into a fictional story that’s remarkably rich, full, and moving.

Anyone who is at a crossroad in their life will identify with protagonist Julie Wasserman. Having lost her job at Lehman Brothers during the collapse, she is dealt an even worse blow when her brother is killed in a head-on collision. Because they are twins, Jack is not just a sibling, he’s her best friend, and life seems very bleak without him.

Consumed by grief, she moves back to their hometown (Pittsburgh) so she can visit Jack’s grave daily. With 6 free weeks before her new job begins, Julie makes a bold choice to visit Thailand because Jack had dreamed of going there.

A chance meeting on Patong Beach throws her for a loop, when an Israeli named Avi introduces himself with the following line: “Do you know that over two hundred and fifty people each year are killed by falling coconuts?”

Not looking for a romance, Julie is hesitant, but Avi’s good looks and charm win her over. They spend time getting to know each other and enjoy fun tourist adventures together all over Thailand, becoming so close he takes her back to Israel.

Believing that Jack would want her to keep mourning, she is torn between grief and romance. Can Avi—and a higher power—find a way to show her that true love does exist and that she definitely deserves it?

What I enjoy most about Susan’s books is how relatable the characters are. She creates real-acting people going through real-life stuff; it’s not always pretty and it’s never perfect, but it’s always so moving. (Julie reminds me so much of someone I know—in a good way.) Of course, I’m always a sucker for a rocky romance, too, and Julie and Avi are so right for each other, I found myself hurrying through the pages, praying they’d make it work.

Susan has generously offered multiple copies of Jerusalem Stone, so there will be FOUR winners, who will have their choice of a paperback or E-Book. This giveaway will be open until 10/13/18. Good luck to all!
