Book Review: The Fault In Our Stars by John Green

The author has managed to write a love story on par with the notebook. But this isn’t your typical love story. This isn’t a story full of romance. This is a story of heartbreak, theirs and yours. This is a story of two kids who live everyday to not what society would deem the fullest but what they decide is the fullest. It shouldn’t be any other way. This book lives up to all the hype and I highly recommend it.

Products i've used up recently

Avon Naturals Almond and Milk lotion. I love this scent from Avon. Unfortunately they only had it for a limited time. These are some of the best makeup remover wipes around. I always keep some mints on my desk and these are the best. How can you not love Nivea Creme? The scent is heavenly. This formula is great when you have really dry skin. Jasmine is probably my favorite scents of the OPI lotions. They all are great. I love how light this lotion is. And a winter must have Neutrogena Norwegian formula hand cream. Love It!!!

Oh Karl

Sweatpants are a sign of defeat. You lost control of your life, so you bought some sweatpants. - Karl Lagerfeld

Why I love Audrey

I believe in manicures. I believe in overdressing. I believe in primping at leisure and wearing lipstick. I believe in pink. I believe that laughing is the best calorie burner. I believe in kissing, kissing a lot. I believe in being strong when everything seems to be going wrong. I believe happy girls are the prettiest girls. I believe that tomorrow is another day, and I believe in miracles. -Audrey Hepburn

Quick and easy makeup bag cleanup

Every now and then we need to clean out our makeup bag. This keeps everything organized, helps us rediscover things we hadn't been using and lets us know what new products we need. So here is a quick little checklist. 1. Empty all the contents onto a clean flat surface such as a counter top. You want to use a surface that is easy to clean up just in case something spills. 2. Get rid of anything that is old and expired. Toss broken pencils and lipsticks. If your mascara or liquid eyeliner is more than four months old toss it. 3. Wipe down everything from the bag to all the products with a damp cloth. Let dry. 4. Now it’s time to reassess everything. Are you using everything? Do you really need everything here or can you get rid of something? Is there anything that you need to purchase or restock up on? 5. In an organized fashion, repack everything into the bag. You also might want to consider some of the nice organizing trays that are available. Try to keep like products together so that you can find things fast. If you do this on a regular basis it doesn't take too long. I hope this helped. Ciao

Walmart Haul

OK did a little shopping at Walmart and I thought i'd show you the cool stuff I got. First Is this cute owl mug that I just had to have. It comes with conversation hearts inside.
I bought Suave's everlasting sunshine lotion to go in my bathroom. I love the scent it has and it lasts for a long time. I also love that it's thin but not too thin and also not too thick. Next is the Nivea smooth sensation lotion. Nivea makes the best lotions and cremes ever. They have a wonderful scent to them. I wish they would make a perfume. Next is the Neutrogena naturals fresh cleansing and makeup remover. This line of products just came out and I was dying to give it a try after receiving samples of it at a hotel recently. I'll let you know how it works. Of course you must always have a billion blistex and chapsticks around. This is the blistex medicated lip-balm with SPF 15.I love vampires, so of course I had to have the vampire perfume from body fantasies. It kind of smells like cotton candy. Also it came with a purse spray which is awesome. I also have been meaning to try the strawberry fields tic tacs and I wasn't disappointed. They're pink and raise money for breast cancer research how could you not love them. Next is Cover Girls contouring blush in refined rose, eye-shadow singles in mink and bedazzled biscotti. These are some very neutral colors and staples in my makeup bag. I love that the bedazzled biscotti has some sparkle to it.
I have heard some amazing reviews about the author John Green and this book in particular, the fault in our stars. Can't wait to read it. Let me know if you have read it and what you think.

Book Review: Gone Girl by Gillian Flynn

Wow I am at a loss for words after reading this book. I really liked it but the ending completely blew me away. I didn't see that coming. If you like a really great mystery than this book is for you.

Hello Kitty

Just so you know i love Hello Kitty. I have since I was very little. My favorite store when I was little was the Sanrio Hello Kitty store and its wall of stickers. I could spend hours in there. Well I just found out that McDonald's has Hello Kitty toys for their happy meals and yes this made me happy. I desperately wanted the nerdy Hello Kitty reading a book but they all were cute. So this afternoon I ran (OK drove) down to my nearest Golden Arches and grab a happy meal. Guess which doll I got? Yes the nerdy one. Isn't she cute. Been doing the happy dance ever since.
