NARSvember-HG-Products

Thanks for joining me once again here during NARSvember!  Today I am talking about my All Time Holy Grail Products from NARS.  There are honestly quite a few, but for the purposes of this post, I decided to narrow it down to five.  That’s right, five.  Out of all of the amazing products that NARS offers, I managed to whittle my very long and insane list down to just five.  Believe me, it wasn’t easy!  The struggle is real my friends, the struggle is real!  So let me break down my NARS #HG products my friends.   (more…)

A fast-paced psychological thriller about a horrifically abused girl who has fled her tormentors only to come face-to-face with more danger

Seventeen-year-old Charlotte barely escaped from her abusive parents. Now she’s trying to start a new life, but while she can erase her former identity, she can’t rid herself of the memories. And her troubled history won’t let her ignore the little girl she sees in the park. The girl with the bruises and burn marks.That’s when Charlotte begins to receive the threatening notes left in her apartment—without a trace of entry. As the messages grow more menacing, she doesn’t just need to uncover who is leaving them; she needs to stop whoever it is before anyone else she loves ends up dead. 

 

My Thoughts

I can’t say that I have ever actually given any thought to human trafficking.  Maybe we can chalk it up to what I would consider #firstworldproblems but I’ve never really been concerned about it.  I think I’ve given more though to global warming quite honestly.  The sad thing is that both issues deserve our/my attention.  That’s kind of why I think Cut Me Free by J.R. Johansson was so great, because it highlighted an issue that should concern us all. (more…)

I have finally stepped into the world of Memebox.  I know that Julie has been a huge fan of Memebox for a while now, and normally her recommendation would be enough to get me on board.  Unfortunately, I’ve been burned by pretty much every beauty box subscription service that I have ever tried before.  While Memebox is not a ‘subscription’ service in the traditional sense, I was still kind of hesitant to try them out.  Well that has all changed.  (more…)
