Say “I Love You” With LoveBook

LoveBookLogo.jpg

This Valentine’s Day, say “I Love You” with a personalized book for that special someone.  LoveBook is one of the greatest universal gifts, and it’s all completely made by you, and put into a high quality book for the lucky recipient.

LoveBook is the only gift that lets you express all the little reasons why you love someone. Those same little reasons that can easily go overlooked.  I had a blast putting together a book for my husband and I LOVE the way it turned out!

Every single person has a different and unique love story.  The LoveBook Book Building System lets you tell that story by listing all those special reasons why you love someone.  The above images are just a few of the pages from my husband’s book…there ended up being roughly 70 pages!  You get to choose your cover from the many that are available and edit the title.  You even get to make the characters!  I can’t believe how much the stick figures look like my husband and I!  After you pick your cover and create your characters you’re ready to start putting together the pages that will become your LoveBook.

Once you place your order, it’s printed by a professional printing plant and shipped off the the lucky person receiving it.  LoveBook ships all over the world so no matter how far, you can still say a special “I love you”

I can’t think of a better time than Valentine’s Day to give a gift of love, made from the heart, and printed out to last forever.  Give the one you love a LoveBook and let them know all the little reasons why you love them.

Ulysses Press is one of the fastest-growing small publisher, reinventing the the relationship between reader, author, and publisher.  Ulysses Press offers a wide variety of books for readers that come from all walks of life.  One look at what Ulysses Press has to offer and it’s easy to see why they’re able to stay on top and just keep growing.

20161122_152911.jpg

I found quite a few books from Ulysses Press that I just couldn’t live without and I was so excited to be able to try out some of my favorites and share them all with you guys!

20161122_151957.jpg

It’s no secret that I LOVE coloring.  Years back before adult coloring books had hit the market I was using kids books and really missed the challenge that they used to be as a little kid.  When adult coloring books hit the market I was instantly in love, and Ulysses Press has some great adult coloring book options.  The 1990’s Coloring Book is FULL of some of my favorite pop-culture icons from the 90’s.  This nostalgia-inducing book is filled with the most memorable movies, TV shows, tunes, fashions, and hilarious moments in pop culture that made the 90’s totally epic.  Calming Dot to Dot is a great way to challenge your brain while watching the image unfold before you.  These aren’t the connect-the-dot pictures from your childhood, these ones are incredible!  These dot to dot pictures help improve concentration, reduce stress, and allows you to imbrace your inner child by doing the simple, engaging task of completing the detailed designs.  Coloring Dream Mandalas is an imagination inspiring coloring book full of beautiful quotes and images.  The beauty of the dream world combined with the intricate designs provide page after page of coloring bliss.  Coloring Ocean Mandalas is another fun coloring book from Wendy Piersall.  The array of nautical-themed images adds beauty to the already beautiful and stunning underwater world.  Designs ranging from whales to mermaids, and turtles to sea horses, dolphins and even jellyfish…this book brings relaxation, focus, and a higher state of mindfulness.  Daily Zen Doodles is a great way to practice quieting your mind.  Every page in this book contains a prompt that you’ll finish with patterns or doodles…wherever your mind takes you.  The prompts are simple offering absolute doodle freedom.

20161122_152028.jpg

Ulysses Press has much more to offer than just coloring books!  My sons really like Can Holding In A Fart Kill You?.  This fun book is packed with 150 tantalizing questions you never thought you needed answered…until now.  You’ll be astonished with the sensational revelations and compelling answers.  I grew up taking quizzes in teenage magazines and I am not ashamed to admit that I couldn’t wait to try out 101 Fun Personality Quizzes.  These pop culture themed quizzes that offer a quirky way to better understand your personality.  you’ll learn if you’re more Elle Woods or culture expert Kourtney Jason.  Grab a pen and flip to any page, you’ll start discovering who you are while having a blast.

From crafting to prepping to cooking and even working out, Ulysses Press has a little something for everyone.

Nuts is the other fun Parragon cookbook that I received.  I love anything and everything nuts, so this was the perfect book to receive.  Packed with protein, essential fats, and fiber, nuts are so much more than a casual snack in fact they are a superfood that you just shouldn’t be without. Use these recipes to discover how you can incorporate nuts into every stage of your day breakfast, lunch, dinner, desserts, and snacks. And with so many nuts to choose from, from walnuts and pecans to pine nuts and Brazil nuts, the combinations really are endless. Once you’ve tried the recipes, they will inevitably find their way into your regular culinary repertoire.

Overnight Oatmeal instantly made it’s way to my #1 favorite go-to breakfast.  Simply combine all of the ingredients the night before, and in the morning you’ve got a great, protein packed breakfast with a nice little crunch and amazing flavor.

HazelnutBananaBread.jpg

Oh, my, goodness!  This Banana, Goji, and Hazelnut Bread is KILLER GOOD!  After trips to 4 local stores, I was unable to find goji berries (fresh or dried) no matter how hard I tried.  I used dried black cherries and they were a great addition to the bread.  Parragon really knows how to whip up some tasty recipes!
