April Ipsy Glam Bag Unboxing & Review

Reviews, Unbox Me 4

Continuing with my new found addiction to subscription boxes, I’ve got an April Ipsy box haul for you guys today. In case you didn’t know, Ipsy is an inexpensive “beauty bag” subscription for women that comes once a month and features a lot of interesting beauty products. Since I’ve been meaning to get into more beauty stuff, but I’m on a budget, I thought this was a great way to… Read more »

Book Review: Untamed by Victoria Green & Jinsey Reese

Book Review: Untamed by Victoria Green & Jinsey Reese

Adult Book Reviews 4 ★★★★½

One Line: A very sexy and entertaining NA novella that will leave you wanting so much more. In My Opinion: Add to cart! Untamed is the first of FIVE novellas in this particular series (meant to be a kind of serial romance) and I have to say, even though the wait is torture, I’m becoming a fan of these kinds of reads. The book itself is filled with passionate characters,… Read more »

Book Review: The Secret Diamond Sisters by Michelle Madow

Book Review: The Secret Diamond Sisters by Michelle Madow

Young Adult Book Reviews 1 ★★★

One Line: A decent YA contemporary about teen sisters in Vegas. In My Opinion: Worth a try! I’ve always wanted to try a Madow book so when she offered to let me review her newest series, The Secret Diamond Sisters, I had to give it a try. I have to say, it’s not bad at all. The story revolves around three teen sisters -Peyton, Courtney, and Savannah – who get… Read more »

Book Review: Timestorm by Julie Cross

Book Review: Timestorm by Julie Cross

Young Adult Book Reviews 1 ★★★

One Line: A great ending to a unique and complex story. What I Loved: Cross really sold me on Jackson’s character in this last installment. I already liked him from the beginning, but just seeing him shine through in Timestorm, and being with him as he put all the puzzle pieces together was great. I’m also a major fan of Blake. He plays a key role in this book and… Read more »

As the Bump Grows: Week 21

As the Bump Grows, Pregnancy 0

This fifth month has brought quite a few things with it, good and bad, but we’re hanging in there. It’s also been a little boring, increasing movements aside, but I’m not complaining. There is something that’s come up, but I’m not ready to talk about it yet until I know for sure, so I’ll just ask that you keep me and the Little One in your prayers and thoughts. And… Read more »

Book Review: Search by Alyssa Rose Ivy

Book Review: Search by Alyssa Rose Ivy

New Adult Book Reviews 5 ★★★★

One Line: Every bit as addicting as the first book, I love this series! In My Opinion: Add to cart! Search definitely had a lot of key things happen that I was hoping for. After what happened in Soar, I was dying to get back into this world of Pterons and see how Casey is handling things. Ivy doesn’t disappoint, this book is packed with paranormal action, intrigue, fun moments,… Read more »

Book Review: Fugitive X by Gregg Rosenblum

Book Review: Fugitive X by Gregg Rosenblum

Young Adult Book Reviews 0 ★★½

One Line: Not as exciting as the first, but it was okay. In My Opinion: Worth a try! As much as I liked Revolution 19, with all the excitement, danger, and action, Fugitive X left a lot to be desired. I’m guessing this book is suffering from “second book syndrome” because it just wasn’t as engaging or entertaining as the first one. It’s more of a filler. While I did… Read more »

Brooklyn Baby & Family Expo – My Experience

Brooklyn Baby & Family Expo – My Experience

Pregnancy, Reviews 2

I attended the Brooklyn Baby & Family Expo last weekend to see what was new in the “baby world” and just get a glimpse of what another baby expo was like. Overall, it was a nice experience. I’ll admit, there were only a couple “big name” baby brands there, the majority was small companies, locals even, and I hadn’t heard of most them. The spokespeople there seemed knowledgeable and excited… Read more »

Book Review: Don’t Look Back by Jennifer L. Armentrout

Book Review: Don’t Look Back by Jennifer L. Armentrout

Young Adult Book Reviews 6 ★★★★★

One Line: Suspenseful, engaging, and just all kinds of awesome. I loved it! In My Opinion: Add to cart! I swear, there isn’t any genre this lady can’t write! Don’t Look Back was just as suspenseful and riveting as I was hoping for. As a YA contemporary mystery, it has just the right amount of crazy, drama, and intrigue to keep anyone glued to the pages. I think Jen did… Read more »
