Ex-Con Reading (Read by hunky hubs, Sean Murphy)

A few weeks ago, my husband Sean and I filmed this reading of EX-CON. Initially, I was going to read it myself, but I just figured, you guys might enjoy a little eye-candy instead. 😉

To learn more, you can follow me on Facebook, Instagram, or Twitter (@katanacollins)

We Were Here by Daisy Prescott

Hey everyone! Have you heard of Daisy Prescott’s newest release coming out February 22nd? We Were Here is a New Adult stand alone novel taking place in the 90s that’s also a prequel to Geoducks Are for Lovers. Basically it’s gonna transport right back to high school and I can’t wait to sink my teeth into it!

As part of the #wewerehere #inthe90s campaign, I’m supposed to tell you all about my all time favorite 90s song mixed tape choice! This is hard to narrow down. I remember waiting by the radio, ready to hit record on my favorite songs when they were played! That being said, my song of choice is a little later in the nineties–1998. K-Ci & JoJo’s All My Life. I was a sophomore in high school and if a boy wanted to woo me? He could learn this song and sing it to me…because as much as I love mixed tapes, I loved it even more when a guy serenaded me. 😉

We Were Here is currently exclusively available for pre-order on ibooks and will be released on February 22nd! Get your copy now and let me know in the comments your favorite 90s mixed tape song!



Tuesday Tails: Aimee (NJ)

Aimee is praying to the heavens above for someone to see her, fall in love with her, and offer her the forever home she has only ever dreamed of!

Aimee is a gorgeous girl that is approx 5 years old. She has beautiful eyes and a nice lush coat. And her smile lights up a room! She is a sweet girl who loves people, is loyal, and would love to have her own family. She loves to go for walks, probably could even be a great running partner. She enjoys car rides, playing with balls and toys, and running in the yard. She is spayed, microchipped, and has her vaccines. She is looking for a home where she can be the queen of the castle as the only child. But no worries, she’s all you need, as she has enough love and companionship to offer. If interested in giving Aimee what’s she’s always wanted, a family of her own, please email A Ruff Life Rescue in New Jersey at aruffliferescue@gmail.com12122800_454609571392040_4923094541281438588_n10311785_454609578058706_8058684113548330050_n

Style File Friday: Autumn is here!

I love autumn SO much, I can’t even begin to narrow down the clothing ideas and options. It’s chilly enough that you can layer. You can wear cute boots, but it’s also still warm enough that you can get away with heels if you so choose. Although, in my opinion, nothing beats an awesome sweater and a great pair of boots!

I love the warm colors in this outfit. The orange (but it’s not TOO orange or bright for my skin tone) and the earrings that are earthy and compliment the leather boots. LOVE LOVE LOVE! Let’s go pick some pumpkins!b06f2947c332a6ad116f26f4803f9408

Tuesday Tails: Eddie (Maryland)

My name is Eddie. I’m an active and energetic young Yorkie. I get along great with other dogs and I do ok with cats. I’m looking for a home with another young dog to be my playmate. I need a yard with a physical fence where I can play safely. I am almost housebroken.

Tuesday Tails: Olivia and Giselle (Maryland)

Olivia and Giselle are really sweet cats who lost their owner unexpectedly. They are very bonded to one another and are looking for a home together. Olivia (black cat) is an outgoing charmer and the life of the party. She loves people, dogs and other cats. Giselle (brown tabby) is very sweet, but a little more reserved than Olivia. It takes her a little longer to warm up, but once she does, she loves one on one attention from her person. She also gets along with dogs.

Tuesday Tails: Goliath (Arkansas)

Please contact Shawn (tendogtattoo@yahoo.com) for more information about Gentle Giant.

The ladies at the Arkansans for Animals Operation SAVE clinic loved him so much that they wrote ‘A Gentleman and a Scholar’ in the notes on his vet record. He weighed in at 120 lbs at the clinic, but is a bit underweight. His family says that he weighed 150 lbs at one time. Because of his size we are cautious about his placement and do not think that he should go to a home with small children, cats, or dogs. That being said, he acts like a sweet big ole baby whenever we are with him and has lived most of his life with another dog, Daisy Maisy (unrelated by blood).

Goliath is neutered, heartworm negative, and up-to-date on shots. He has a head the size of a basketball. 🙂

To apply for Goliath, please submit an application via Out of the Woods Rescue:


Adoption fee of $150 will help offset vet costs. Transport can be arranged for an additional $175.

Style File Friday: Running Cute

In preparation of my looming half marathon, I thought a fun twist on today’s Style File Friday would be running and workout gear!

One of my favorite things to buy is funny, comfy racerback shirts! These three are probably my next purchases!ac037c2e554775033bc61734933b04dc ac23079145c07a5912704a14cbe9e244 9238b0dd94ec661a8fa46d3cca75b392







But other times, you want an outfit that is more sexy than funny… Here’s one of my favorites. Blue and orange is my favorite color combo and I LOVE Saucony’s shoes. Who says you can’t look sweaty AND sexy??


Tuesday Tails: Blue in Indiana

drpem3xzef3kf.cloudfront-1 drpem3xzef3kf.cloudfront-2 drpem3xzef3kf.cloudfrontHow can you say no to that face???? Meet Blue! He is a young, dachshund/beagle mix, born August 2013. He loves other dogs, loves to cuddle, but still wants to play like a puppy! He is crate trained and potty trained. Because of his beagle nose, Blue does require a fenced yard. One calm little dog who loves his rope toys. 25 pounds of sweet love!

Blue’s wish list: 1)Fenced yard, (not an underground fence), 2)No cats, 3)No tiny children, but would love an older child of his own.

Adoption fee is $175 and includes neuter, shots and microchip. Blue would do best in a home with no cats or small children.

Style File Friday: Boot Weather!

Style File Friday: Boot Weather!!! Okay, well, here in NYC today it’s actually more like BEACH weather than BOOT weather… but I’m preparing! Because I am SO excited for autumn. My absolute FAVORITE season. I’ve already been apple picking and now I have more apples than I know what to do with! Granted, I wouldn’t go apple picking in this outfit, but my God, is it not gorgeous?? Everything about it. I LOVE THIS OUTFIT. The belt, the boots, the dress, her glasses, her makeup, the clutch… just wrap it up and send it over!
