Corey Taylor's Seven Deadly Sins Book Review

This is my first book review on my blog! (better yet it's the first book I've finished in a while) I get bored with most books and hop between chapters and this and that...I think the last book I finished was Steven Adlers Apettite for sex, drugs, and guns n' roses...and that was over the summer! (whoops) So anyways Happy Halloween!!! It's my favorite holiday by far, theres just such a warm feeling I get for fall and halloween, well it's a little depressing it's about 30 mins from being over! BUT back to the review:
 The books full title is The Seven Deadly Sins, Setteling the argue between born bad and damnaged goods (I might be a word or two off, my brothers girlfriend borrowed it, so I'm not looking at it right now.) Long story short I loved the book! I honestly wished it was longer...I realized we have a lot of the same views, but he can explain them a lot better than I could, but I agreed with just about everything he said. What did he say? Well, basically how the seven deadly sins are just, well out dated and in my opinion, it's very true. He broke each one down and explained how the "sin" is not deadly, character flaw? Maybe, but deadly? No. He also explained how there is really no reason to sweat the small stuff no you're not going to hell for not folding the clothes before they wrinkle, ya damn sloth! And like all autobiographies he mixed life stories in with explaining the sins and how he knows them well. I had no clue about his childhood until I read this book, and I have to say...it was the most disturbing part of the book, I had no idea he was abused, neglected, and even sexually assulted. BUT how he says he wouldn't be where he is today if he didn't grow from all of that is truely inspiring, how he excepts everything and copes with everything makes him seem (to me) admirable. I really liked this book and give it...probably a...get your ass to the store and buy it! rating :) So probably 4.5 to 5 (on a 5 point scale!)

Alright loves, get reading, and rocking, with much peace and love,
 Ashley (do I make any sense?) :)

My Rite Aid Covergirl Deal and a Secret CD...

Well, I had a rather GREAT trip to rite aid on Tuesday, I believe and Im'a tell you about it. :) I had 4 $8/2 coupons from covergirl. For face products so I ended up with 6 blushes and 2 concealers and 1 lip gloss. Here's the lowdown with their buy 1 get 1 50% off sale I had a hard time reaching $30 (before coupons) to get my $10 up reward so I ended up buying a lipgloss for about $5.50 for an extra (I did NOT use the face coupon for that, that would be coupon fraud and I don't like to screw companies over who are trying to help people get what they want/need for cheaper than retail) And I bought a Pert shampoo (glam huh?) haha because it was on sale for $3 and you get a $2 up reward back and I had a $1 off coupon to make it technically free! So after coupons and using a $2 up reward I paid $1.18 for ALL of that! And got $12 up rewards back!!! So I'm rolling that with deals starting tommorow that I will let you know about when I get to it lol BUT if you want to take advantage of the deals GO TO http://www.hip2save.com/  go ahead, leave my site and go their NOW PLEASE it's amazing, I promise. No spam no nothing just good deals to be had :) Anywho with my purchases of covergirl products got me 9 codes to redeem for Taylor Swift Merch. From past deals I got a guitar pick set and a braclet, but with this deal I got 90 points! and that goes far with this program, so I paid $1.18 and got: 1 Taylor Swift T-shirt, 1 Taylor Swift Poster, a Taylor Swift Keychain, a VERY cute guitar journal (and I keep journals with lyrics/my thoughts in them so SWEET!) and another Taylor Swift braclet to give to my moms co-workers daughter :) So I got all that stuff on top of the make-up and the up rewards back! And even though I am an avid rock fan, I own every Taylor Swift CD ever made :P lol I seriously do, the special versions, the platinum version (I can hear you laughing so STOP! lol) Now I can't lie that well, yes the special versions and the platinum editions I got at yardsales BUT I liked her before she was a superstar and got all the originals at walmart, full price O_o hahahahaha but I think she's awesome, and love that she does give her fans their moneys worth :)  Do you want to know what CD is the BEST KEPT SECRET AT WAL-MART??? Somewhere in the Stratosphere By Shinedown Their is NOTHING I love more than good rock songs turned into even better acoutic songs and live! Can you say this CD has it all!? I sure as hell can! It's awesome, I can listen to the whole CD on repeat for a whole damn day I swear! And it comes with a DVD of the show! SA-WEET (did I just type that?) yes I did, I love shinedown, I personally think they are one of the best, if not the best newer/ish rock band their is, they are just an awesome rockband. Thats all I can say, except well, BUY IT!!!

 Ah, well much Peace and Love,

I'm A Happy Camper :)

Well, I'm sitting in my cosy new room (the basement) and I've turned it into quite the awesome room! But anyway I'm sitting here listening to one of my fave bands, Saosin (Check them out!!) and ever since my computer crashed I had to fill my ipod back up but for the life of me I could not find my Stabbing Westward CD, which made me a rather sad person :( Well guess what! I FOUND IT! I'm putting it on my ipod right now (It's called Wither, Blister, Burn + Peel) I'm soooooo happy! I can't wait to listen to it!!!!! It's seriously one of my fave CD's you must check it out, I just, omfg I LOVE it. But the downer is, is it's Sunday night and its the beginning of yet ANOTHER busy week.. and I still have math homework to do :(...but at least Thursday is my birthday :D Sweet 16 baby! and I don't have classes on that day! But I have a Dr's appt. Great. haha And tommorrow I'm going to rite aid to score a sweet money maker on Covergirl cosmetics (after classes) , with those lovely $8 of 2 FACE products and they just so happen to have it on sale (buy one get on 50% off) and spend $30 get $10 up rewards (before coupons) , so after coupons it'll be a STEAL! And theirs some other deals on stuff I need, like on mouthwash or something (It's stupid and I forget lol) Have to check my list. Now all I can hope is the shelves are not cleared :(  And on my bday I'm going Sephoria shopping (Uh-Oh) and mall shopping with some sweet coupons from Bath and Body works and such. And Duff Mckagans (from guns n' roses) new book is coming out this week and I have a coupon for that! (15% off) And I'll be scoring all the bday freebies I can :) Seporia ALWAYS has awesome bday gifts for being a beauty club member (or whatever it is on their website) and it's FREE to join! It's a win, win! So this will be a fabulous week for retail theropy (and on the cheap!!!!) :)

 Well, as always, Much peace and love,

P.s haha on a side note while typing the tag label things I just had to laugh, Sephoria + Duff Mckagan + Covergirl + Stabbing Westward. Only me :)
