I was very excited to read Bitterblue. I couldn't put it down. But I wasn't satisfied when I finished it. I hoped to see something happen with the navy. I felt the author left room to expand and maybe add another book to it. I hope that the author does expand on it. I enjoy reading in this world. If she does expand on it I can only hope that she adds more action in it like Graceling and Fire had. This book felt more like a mystery/fantasy. Bitterblue mostly just looked into her father's past and did what she could to rectify the wrongs her father did. She struggled with being so confined in the palace; as well as not knowing the people of her kingdom as she would have liked. 
I don't think you need to read the two previous books to understand this book. But reading them would help to know all the characters in Bitterblue. All three books are a quick read. They are all young adult books.
This is all I can think to say about this book. So until I can think of more to write about it. I'll talk to you next time. Laterz! 

Sally Hansen Salon Effects…


I received the Sally Hansen Salon Effects in my spring Voxbox. I have been wanting to try these out for awhile now but couldn't bring myself to spend the $9.99 to try them out. I was very excited when I saw a box of them in my Voxbox. Okay putting them on was a bit of a pain, my hands shake a lot when I do my nails. It also kept me from getting them on smoothly. It took me between 3-5 minutes per nail to get them on. So this product is for someone who has the patience to sit and do them. After I got them all on I put a top coat on them. They are suppose to last up to 10 ten days but mine only last maybe 5 before they started to noticeably chip. On the 7th day I took them off cause they started chipping really bad. They removed easily with nail polish remover. I did like this product but I probably won't purchase again sense its hard for me to get them on smoothly and it takes me so long to apply them. 

This product can be purchased at any store that sells Sally Hansen. You can also find out more about them on their site

I would suggest buying them if you don't shake and you have the patience to sit and do them. Other wise you'll just get frustrated.

Bath & Body Works Fine Fragrance Mist Paris Amour…

I received a Bath and Body works Body Mist is the fragrance Paris Amour. It retails for $14.00. I must say I love this scent. The body mist only lasts for a couple hours before it wears off. I'd really like to get the perfume instead of the body mist because it lasts longer. But till I can get $30.00 I have to wait on getting it. 
This scent is suppose to make you feel like you're strolling down the streets in paris. I've never been there so I can't really compare. It's a sweet scent but not over powering. It won't make you feel like you just inhaled sugar. And I like that. 
I will defiantly be purchasing this product again. I went and purchased the shower gel, body butter, and body scrub after I received the mist. I think is my new favorite scent.

Here's a link to the Bath and Body Works site so you can find this product.
You can also find the fragrance at any Bath and Body Works stores near you. You can also check out their other signature fragrances there as well. There's over 20 different ones to choose from.

Soyjoy Review…


I received a Blueberry Soyjoy in my Spring 2012 influenster/Voxbox the other day. I really like Soyjoy. I've only been eating the strawberry when I get them. This was the first time I tried the blueberry. Strawberry is still my favorite. Not saying the blueberry was bad, it was actually very good. But I'm a strawberry fan more then a blueberry fan. 

Soyjoy bars come in Apple walnut, Banana, Berry, Blueberry, Mango Coconut, Pineapple, and lastly Strawberry. 

Soyjpy bars are made from all natural ingredients. They are vegetarian, gluten-free, and contain 16-17 grams of carbohydrates per bar. Soyjoy is a plant based bar which is prefect for gluten-free diets as well as vegetarians. 

You can purchase the bars at supermarkets that carry the brand. I've found them at all my supermarkets here in my town. But each city could very on where they are sold. But you can also purchase them online from Target,, and Amazon. They can price between $0.99 – $1.29. Pricing very's from place to place. 

If there's anything else you wish to know about Soyjoy you can go to their website

Voxbox/Influenster Spring Box…


Well, I received my spring Voxbox from Influenster today. I must say I'm really excited with this one. I got a Sheer cover duo concealer, Aveeno daily moisturizing body wash, Chapstick lip shield 365, Sally hansen salon effects, Bath and body works fine fragrance mist, Soyjoy bar, and lastly Dr. Sholl's for her- ball of foot pads. I can't wait to try everything. I've been looking for a new concealer so I'm really hoping this one works good for me. I love the smell of the fragrance and had to fight my mom off of it LOL. She loves it too and said we have to go and buy another so she can use it too. I already eat Soyjoy bars, but I haven't tried the blueberry one yet so we'll see if I like it as much a I like the strawberry. I've been wanting to try the Sally Hansen salon effects for awhile now but couldn't bring my self to spend $9.99 on something I wasn't sure about. Well, this will help me decide if I'll end up purchasing them. I always use Chapstick so we'll see if this one is a winner. I also never used the Dr. Sholl's products so we'll see if I like those too (^_^). 

I will post reviews as I test the products, but so far first impressions are good and I'm excited to try them all. 

**disclaimer I received each product complimentary for testing purposes from Influenster. These were not purchased I was chosen to review these products.**  

Okay, it’s been awhile…


Where to start? 

I guess I'll start with books. I just finished reading "Bitterblue" By: Kristin Cashore. I enjoyed it. Though, with the way it ended it makes me wonder if she's going to continue with that world. I feel like it ended with questions unanswered. Well, for me it did. It answered some questions I had about Bitterblue and about Leck but that's it. I dunno I guess I would have liked more. We'll see if the author plans on expanding in that world or not. 
I still got a ton of books to read. Doesn't help that I don't stop buying them, especially getting the $0.99 books on my kindle. I have been trying to read. But I find that I want to wait for books by authors that I already know. There's a few books that I'm planning on getting next month so that's exciting. I still want to do book reviews on youtube. I just gotta start reading again to keep doing them. LOL. That's all I have to say about books for now. If I think of some more I'll post more about them. 

Now for make-up I've gotten a lot of make-up this month. I'm getting a Beauty Army sample box, Birchbox sample box, GDE OTM, and Infuenster sample box. I've already got the Beauty Army and the Birchbox I'm just waiting on the other two now. I also bought some stuff from ELF. Along with a face mask from ULTA. I do want to go back to ULTA for the Dark Shadows NYX pallet but we'll see if we can make it down there sometime to get it. I will be doing reviews on here from my sample box's and maybe some video's haven't decided yet.

Last month was Brandon's and mine one year anniversary. We went out to IHOP for lunch. Then after we went to Trade-a-game. He bought himself 2 games. I gave him his present, which was a Ocarina. For those who don't know what that is its basically the flute Link plays in Zelda. He's been playing it all the time sense I got it for him. I'm happy he likes it. He got me a necklace that was silver with black diamonds. It was a heart with wings. I love it. He says he already know's what he's getting me for my birthday next month. Besides wanting to take me out to lunch or dinner. We'll see what happens. 
Here's a link to the pic of my necklace I posted on facebook.
I don't got a pic of his flute on hand. 

I got an Mp3 player. Sense my other one was pissing me off. So I gave it to Brandon. The one I got has alot less memory then the other one but that's okay it works better! I just gotta get a micro SD card for it and I'll be happy. Been getting music off of Itunes for it. 

Hmm, what else to talk about? I'm not sure so I'll leave it at this for now. Till next time. Laterz!
