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?

Monthly Empties | April 2018

This month I'm trying hard to just let things go, especially if I've had it for a long time. I feel like I went through a lot of skin care, which is typical, but I also feel like I went through my fair share of makeup bits as well! I always feel like I don't use things up, until it's the last week of the month and suddenly I'm running out of everything. Here's the things I've used up over the past month...

Lush Lip Scrub: I am not really a lip scrub person, only because I feel that lip balm is just fine. Plus, I'm super lazy/forgetful with extra steps, so I definitely neglected trying to use this lip scrub. Technically a lot is still there, but it's expired and solid as a rock at this point. I've never used a lip scrub before, but this was nice! It exfoliated and tasted great and that's all I really care about. I probably won't repurchase this as I won't use it enough in time.
L'Oreal True Match Foundation: This was given to me as …

#ProjectPan September 2017

This past month, I've said goodbye to my red hair and reintroduced to the blonde life. I've also been surprised by using up various face products...
Joico Color Infuse Red Conditioner: THIS IS THE SOLE REASON MY HAIR HAD SUCH A NICE COPPERY RED HUE. Sorry for the caps locks but this stuff is the best ever if you have dyed your hair any shade of red. Even though towards the end of the month, the orangey bits shone through in the light, my hair had an overall redness to it that had everyone is awe. I swear it makes the red last longer or at least tone it beautifully. If I ever go red again, this will be the first thing I buy.
Living Proof Perfect Hair Day Conditioner ( .33 oz): I'm obsessed with this conditioner as well. Total splurge if I ever bought the full size but oh my I feel like my hair was thanking me for treating it with this conditioner. I truly had a perfect hair day after using this. My hair felt oh so soft and I couldn't have been happier!
Neutrogena Makeup Re…

#ProjectPan October 2017

Of course as soon as I barely run out of anything last month, this month I'm running out of everything!
Products I've Used Up:

Zoella Beauty Ginger Cream: I got this during my winter vacation in London, where I went on a Superdrug hunt for any Zoella Beauty product I could get my hands on. This lotion is part of the winter collection, and was part of a set. I am not the pickiest with lotions, but I compare all to my holy grail, Bath & Body Works lotions. With this, a little went a long way. It wasn't a thick formula, and yet it was a crazy amount of moisturizing goodness in such a small amount. Super impressed. The scent itself was a bit too sweet at times, but the smell is definitely just like a gingerbread cookie. 

Batiste Original Dry Shampoo: LOVE the original! Probably my holy grail dry shampoo, even better than the Not Your Mother's one. Sucks up all the oil. No white residue. All good things, all good things...
Living Proof Restore Perfecting Spray (0.5 oz): I p…
