My Favorite Books

Firstly, I don't have all of these books with me, so I hope not having an image of them is okay...

BUT, Let's talk all things books!

I'm not the best with summarizing, as I want to give the whole plot away, or feel like I'm not saying enough..but I'll give a bit of a reason for why I love them so gosh darn much!

The Art of Racing in the Rain by Garth Stein
Aka the book that makes you think about life. This book is told through a dog's perspective. Enzo, the dog, tells the story of his life, including the life of his owner and the things that goes on with his life. I love this book because it goes through troubled times in life and how dogs see things differently, and it also has a theme of what will happen when Enzo dies. He wishes to be a human in his next life because he thinks that being a human is the highest honor. After I read this, I just looked at my dog in a different light and it's just a cool read.  

The Bride Quartet by Nora Roberts
Aka the books that stole my heart. Nora Roberts is by far one of my favorite authors after I was through with this series. It's about a quartet of best friends that have been best friends since they were in diapers. They would always play the game "wedding day", and once they were done with school, Parker, one of the girls, decided to turn that game into a reality and all the girls are partners in a wedding planning business. Each book focuses on the life of a specific girl and you learn their trade and their love life. Mac is the photographer, Emma is the florist, Laurel is the baker, and Parker is the organizer (planner?..still not sure what exactly her job is called). I don't normally reread books, but I have reread this series 5 times already. That says something... 

The Inn Boonsboro Trilogy by Nora Roberts
Aka the series that intrigues me. All Nora Roberts series follow the same layout. They are centered around a close-knit group and each book is about a specific person. This series is about the Montgomery brothers: Beckett, Owen, and Ryder. Their family has a contracting (again could be wrong with exactly what their job is called) business and fix up old buildings in the town and get them running again. Their first project? The hotel that has been around since the Civil War. It was rumored that a ghost haunts the hotel, and no one really believed in it until Beckett saw her himself. He named the ghost Lizzy because of the room she was found in. Not only is there a story line with each of the brothers, but throughout the series, you learn about Lizzy too. Ghosts intrigue me so I was hooked from the start. It's another series that I've read several times. 

The Rescue by Nicholas Sparks
Aka the book that made me cry. I'm not talking about a little tear, but a full on weep. Nicholas Sparks is notorious for his sad romantic stories, but this was the one that finally got to me. It's about a fireman, Taylor, who rescues Denise one stormy night. It's a standard Sparks book in terms of content, but this particular story can melt even the coldest hearts. If you like romance stories, just trust me on this one...


Have you read any of these books? What did you think?

Me oh my am I determined to get my lip products under control. It's basically me decluttering at this point rather than actually using, but these lip products I've had for a while, so I don't feel as bad. Also, to sum up the lip products, unless they stand out to me as not wearing well (fading unevenly, clumping oddly, etc), or the color doesn't suit me, I generally love/make the color work. 
I've also used up quite a few skin care products that I wasn't expecting to finish.
Things I've Used Up:
Joico Color Infuse Red Shampoo: I bloody love this stuff. I claim this is the thing that makes my hair stay red as long as it does. Not only does it have color-lasting powers, but it cleans your hair and actually makes it feel clean. Huge plus in my book. I'm still undecided how long I want to keep my red hair, but if I ever decide to keep it, or go back to red, this is the first thing I'm gonna pick up.
Cetaphil Moisturizing Cream: This was a sample that I foun…

#ProjectPan July 2017

As my stash somehow is larger than ever, despite my makeup ban efforts, I still only buy when I get those Ulta "free gift with any purchase" emails that sucker me in each time. I'm going to promise myself that unless I need a spare necessary product that I'm nearly out of, when I get those emails, I'll stick to racking up my lip balm collection.
What I've used up over the past month: Joico Color Extend Shampoo: At first, I didn't mind this shampoo. But after the glaze on my hair washed out, I started to hate this shampoo. It just doesn't feel like my hair is clean at the roots. Apparently this is a common problem with color friendly shampoo, so I'm not mad about it, but now that it's done, I'm excited to try other shampoos that will make my hair feel like I got it done at the salon after each wash. Living Proof Perfect Hair Day Shampoo (Sample): OH EM GEE. My hair finally felt like my hair again. I see people buy any and all Living Proof prod…

#ProjectPan June 2017

This month has been fairly tame with finishing things. I'm finding that I'm finally reaching the end of some of my powders and foundations. I'm also doing great with decluttering the lip collection. There's also a bit of face things in there, so hopefully a little something for everyone. 
Products I've Used Up: Dermalogica Pre-Cleanse (30 mL): This is truly life changing. Well, not really, but it took off my makeup exceptionally well and I would happily repurchase this again.  Charlotte Tilbury Magic Night Cream (1.5 mL): I liked how it made my skin feel, but if you over do it, it can still feel tacky in the morning, which wasn't fun. I'm gonna stick with my samples of serums and creams for now.  Maybelline Dream Pure BB: I'm not too fussed with foundations, so I got on with this fairly well. It's a light coverage, but with the right brush, it could be a medium coverage. It lasts a good while. My only complaint is that towards the end, it separated a bi…
