A Hilarious Read for Anyone Who Has Ever Had a Bad Date: Coffee Dates from Hell by Jim Tibberry


I love a good book that makes me laugh, especially when it can make me laugh over and over. These books can be rare, but when I come across one that really gets me rolling on the floor laughing, you can bet I'll be picking it up time and time again, as well as picking up a copy for all my friends!

I recently came across the lighthearted, gut busting "Coffee Dates from Hell" by Jim Tibberry, and I was instantly in love. 

I knew I would love this book thanks to the catchy title, and who can't relate to a few bad dates? I know they say you shouldn't judge a book by it's cover, but on this book, I totally did. I knew it would be a good read, and it certainly did not disappoint!

As you can imagine from the title of this book, you are probably going to hear some pretty outrageous dating stories. I loved flipping through the short stories and reading some of the hilarious antics of these daters. Some of the truly "insane" people in some of these dating stores were all to familiar, like the 40 year old guy who lives with his parents, and the know-it-all who won't even let you get a word in, because he's too busy telling you how important he is.

While some stories will have you remembering some of those god-awful dates from your past, some are just plain outrageous and will have you roaring with laughter! Take a date with the Big Man himself, JC. (I know it sounds like this could be a story that will have you totally hating the author if you have any kind of religious or spiritual notions about you, but the date is innocent, and had me roaring with laughter, especially the last few paragraphs.) 

I love that the author brings in celebrities from history and gives you a sneak peek into what a date with them might have been like. For example, the date with Harry Houdini. I laughed so hard thinking of possibly how annoying dating a magician could really be if he couldn't step away from it for two seconds on a date to really get to know the person sitting in front of him.


Along with great Coffee Dates from Hell Stories, this fabulous read also contains some hilarious senior citizen dating diaries, which thanks to the short date with the lady who certainly has a bad case of dementia going on, has me hoping I won't be single in my 60s or beyond.

The author also brings in some very sad, but true and super ridiculously funny huge failure attempts and creating a successful coffee shop business. Let's just say from what I read, it's probably best to not bring any animals into your coffee shop business any time soon. I thought pigs, chickens, and monkeys would be so cool to hang out with while drinking your coffee. And I absolutely loved the idea of drinking my coffee with animals, that is until it becomes not so fun, and while you're sitting their enjoying your hot cup of java, you end up getting poo thrown at your head by one of the disgruntled monkeys. True Story! And Yes, that really happened here in the US, and not that long ago! Bet that's got you interested in picking up this book to find out the rest now, doesn't it?!

The author also offers great sane, sound, and totally funny advice for things not to do on a first coffee date, how to get out of a horrible date, and ten things you probably shouldn't wear on your coffee date either.

I absolutely loved reading this book and loved that it gave me such a good laugh. The stories are short so this is a great book to pick up and read through when you need a quick pick-me-up after a long day at work. I particularly love good coffee table books your guests can pick up and thumb through. This is the perfect book for that. The short stories are easy and quick to read through and will have them laughing in no time. If like me, you have a husband who likes to take his time in the bathroom, this is a great book to store in there for some quick, totally laugh-worthy reading too!

Anyone who has ever been on a bad date or two (and who hasn't!) can totally identify with this book. It made me laugh hysterically, remembering some of my own horrible dates (which were not so hilarious at the time but are totally laugh-worthy now) as well as has me hoping that I will not be single and dating any time soon!




If you would like to pick up this wonderful laugh out loud read for yourself, you can shop "Coffee Dates From Hell" by Jim Tibberry, on Amazon for only $9.95 for paperback, or only $3.99 for the ebook! With the holidays coming up, this is a great book for anyone on your list who has dated in the last ten years, or really just anyone who can just appreciate a good laugh.


Happy Reading!

Dr Marder Relief Shampoo and Conditioner Review + GIVEAWAY


Living in a naturally dry climate doesn't help my already dry skin. I have always had super dry skin ever since I can remember, as well as dry hair, dry lips, you name it. I constantly apply lotion and lip balm, but where I struggle the most is with my hair. I've tried lots of moisturizing hair products too but a  lot of them just don't quite cut the bill. Sometimes I will luck out and find a product that leaves my locks looking healthier and shinier, but forget about the scalp! I have struggled for years to find a product that would moisturize my scalp as well and get rid of the itching and flaking for good!

ENTER TO WIN this Shampoo and Conditioner set (a $60 Value) at the bottom of this post! 

While I don't commonly suffer from dandruff, I do get the itchy dry scalp, because it is always so dry. I've tried dandruff shampoos in hopes that they would help moisturize my scalp and relieve the dry, itchiness, but have unfortunately ound that many of them are simply too harsh. And on top of that forget about it making the rest of my hair look good. It usually ends up looking even drier and frizzier than before!

Well that is until I recently came across Dr Marder's line of shampoo and conditioner, dedicated to stopping the dry scalp, the horrible itching, and the even worse, flaking! 


When I got this shampoo and conditioner, I figured I would get the same results I've gotten from previous anti-dandruff shampoos. My scalp might get some relief, but the rest of my hair would end up looking worse than before. After my first wash with my new Dr Marder Shampoo, I was completely shocked. Not only did it give my scalp some much needed relief (and I experienced no flaking and I wore LOTS of black during the last few weeks to really test it out) but my hair actually felt noticeably softer! Much softer than even regular shampoos that are designed for softening hair would do! I would run my fingers through my hair and couldn't believe how much softer it felt in my hands. Not only that, but my hair seemed more manageable the last few weeks and looked a bit heather and shinier too! 




I've been absolutely pleased with the Dr Marder line of hair care for relieving dry, itchy, flaking scalps. The shampoo and conditioner are sulfate and paraben free and safe for all hair types, even those who have extremely dull, unhealthy hair like I do. it also has a nice natural fragrance, unlike a lot of anti-dandruff shampoos on the market. While using this product, you can also expect the prevention of future dandruff outbreaks, as well as new hair growth!

The Dr Marder Scalp Therapy Shampoo and Conditioner uses a soothing botanical complex to really help heal and soothe the scalp. You will also find Hydrocortisone in this hair care line, which is the newest, hot ingredient on the anti-dandruff market, because it works! it addresses the key areas of dandruff to stop the symptoms as well as stop the outbreaks! In fact, Dr Marder's line of hair care is the first to use Hydrocortisone for treating dandruff!

This wonderful shampoo and conditioner set is also safe to use everyday and can also be used on colored and treated hair!




I'm absolutely (beautiful and healthy) head over heels for this amazing line of hair care from Dr Marder Skincare. I'm completely obsessed with the results it gives me as well as how soft it has made my hair. I feel like I'm not only doing my scalp a huge favor by using these amazing products, but my hair is absolutely loving it too!
