June Favorites(2019 edition)

Hello, My Darlings! How are you all doing? How was your June? For me, it was a very interesting one. Half of the month I felt like I was in the twilight zone, and my friends and family felt the same way. I don’t know what was going on, but I can say it was crazy. In June it was hella hot in Latvia(very unusual), but I still haven’t opened the swimming season (hope to do that in July). But I did try a lot of new things in June(Like making stuffed bell peppers or cutting my brothers hair). Overall it was an okay month. Let’s dive into the Favorites!

FAVORITE BOOK OF THE MONTH

book coverThe Moth and the Flame

(When Rivals Play #2) by B.B. Reid

THE FLAME

Here lies Louchana Valentine. She was a homeless, orphaned virgin.

I never cared what my gravestone would say until I landed in deep with a powerful gangster. Lucky for me, my best friend happens to be ruthless too. I should feel guilty that he’s forced to turn on the man who’s been a father to him. Except I’ve always known that Wren’s soul wasn’t as black as he claimed.

He was good.
He was beautiful.
He was mine.
He just didn’t know it yet.

And with Wren keeping me safe, I’ve got time left to rewrite the end of my story. But if he has his way, virgin is already carved in stone.

THE MOTH

I’ve never known anyone as alluring as Lou. Or as frustrating. Since the night she saved my life and stole my wallet for her troubles, I couldn’t stay away.

She became my onus.
My light.
My…anyway.

With nowhere to run, I’m forced to trust someone I never expected. At least with Lou safe in Blackwood Keep—far away from me—I’ll die with my conscience intact. Because she no longer looks at me with friendship in her eyes. Those iridescent blues shine with a different need entirely, and I’ve never been able to deny her.

The Moth and the Flame returns to the world of Blackwood Keep, rival gangs, and deliciously flawed yet completely addicting characters! This second installment in the When Rivals Play series is a continuation of the events that occurred in The Peer and the Puppet. Content suitable for ages 18+

FAVORITE TV SHOW THIS MONTH

I love Time Traveling Tvshows and movies(Like Doctor who, Travelers)! And this is one of the best shows on time travel I have ever seen. It’s amazing and James Franco did a great job on this! Definitely, recommend.

11.22.63.jpg

Jake Epping (James Franco), a recently divorced English teacher from Lisbon, Maine, is presented with the chance to travel back in time to 1960 by his long-time friend Al Templeton (Chris Cooper). He is persuaded into going in an attempt to prevent the assassination of John F. Kennedy on November 22nd, 1963; however, he becomes attached to the life he makes in the past, which could be the mission’s undoing. He must find a way to secretly gather information about people and events leading up to the assassination while also creating and maintaining a new life to avoid suspicion.

1.GlissKur Purify and Protect Shampoo

I really liked it, the packaging is cute. My hair feels healthy and clean after using. I was a little bit scared it would strip my hair color(I color my hair regularly in darker color then my hair is) but it didn’t do it. It doesn’t have any artificial color or parabens in it and that’s amazing!

Would I Repurchase it ?- Yes, definitely

Was It affordable? -Yes, it was a little under 2 euros.

About the Product: Developed to meet the needs of environmentally damaged hair, the ultra-light PURIFY & PROTECT line of products incorporates MORINGA MAG EXTRACT into the hair and provides a lightweight protective net against harmful external effects.

2.Fito Cosmetic Anti-dandruff Concentrated Shampoo

It made my scalp ichy, maybe I had an allergic reaction, really don’t know but it was awful. Not happy with this Shampoo.

Would I Repurchase it ?- No

Was It affordable?- Yes

About the Product: With juniper oil and sage. Anti Dandruff. For all hair types. Birch tar and decoction of juniper and sage – this is a great old folk recipe to quickly strengthen the hair and prevent dandruff.

3. Dove Deeply Nourishing Body Wash

This is amazing! The best body wash for shaving(no joke). I love the scent and it makes my skin silky without feeling oily . Love it!

Would I Repurchase it ?-Yes

Was It affordable?- Yes, around 2 euros

About the Product: This moisturizing body wash combines NutriumMoisture™ with mild cleansers to help your skin retain its natural moisture, leaving you with softer, smoother skin after just one shower. The caring formula in this Dove body wash helps maintain your skin’s moisture barrier while delivering natural skin nourishment that goes deep into the surface layers of your skin. It creates a rich lather that replenishes your skin’s nutrients while also leaving it feeling cared for and clean.

4.L’Oreal TURQUOISE HAIR DYE COLORISTA

Ohhh…I hate this with a passion. Let me explain, so I bleached my hair (high light style)because I wanted to strip my hair off the dark brown I had at the time. And sections of my hair was light brown. I saw this hair color and decided to try it out for a week or two, and it was perfect because at the time I wanted to make my hair even lighter in the future, so I couldn’t dye my hair with anything permanent. So I did everything as the instruction said, and my hair did had a beautiful turquoise tone, but after touching it my whole hand was turquoise . I thought it was just my mistake and I didn’t wash it out properly.And you know how long it stayed on my hair? For 2 day! After one wash it was out…..Guys I had better results from much cheaper stuff, So disappointing.

Would I Repurchase it ?-No

Was It affordable?– I got it for 6 euros (it was on a discount ), and it isn’t worth that money

About the Product:L’Oréal Paris Colorista Washout Turquoise fades gradually over 1-2 weeks so you can switch and change your hair colour whenever you want.
Based on Chroma-Cream technology in a conditioning hair-mask base, it softly colours your hair while caring at the same time.
Colorista Washout Turquoise washes out gradually, shampoo after shampoo.

Himalaya “Fresh Start Oil Clear Strawberry “Face Wash review

 

Hello, My Darlings! How are you all doing? Hope the summer is going good for you.

Here I will have a little rant, so if you are not interested totally go ahead and scroll down to the review! So the past week I put up a blog post called “May’s Favorites” all was good for a few days(people where liking and I did check it out few times and it was okay), but after that, I opened up to check it out and I see that it’s blank…..and there are just 2 photos no text or anything….and it was not posted ?!All the text just disappeared..I was so disappointed because writing something and putting your time in it and then it just randomly disappearing, without any logical explanation is hard. Have you ever had this kind of a problem? I have come to terms with it now of course and in the future will definitely make copies of any posts I will ever write, just sucks to lose perfectly good post that’s all. Okay, that’s the end of the rant . Thanks for reading and now let’s dive into the review!

Being very truthful packaging was the selling point for me . It’s so summery and cheerful, right?! So seeing that it was just 2 euros in my local grocery store I got it. It’s a plastic semi-transparent tube where you can see the product, and I appreciate it. The only downside the tube started leaking after opening.

Texture and Quality

4/5 stars 

 

4-stars

The beads are small and not a lot of them are in there, and I prefer it that way. It’s not harsh on the skin, doesn’t leaves your skin feeling dry after using. Has a nice light strawberry smell. I do use it for my acne on my back, and it works much better for the body in my opinion(that’s what I saw after 2 weeks of using)

Overall

                                                                            Pros                                                                                     

Great smell

Light Scent

Affordable

Cute packaging

Cons

Microbeads are bad for the environment

 The tube started leaking after opening

To Marry a Morgan (Pathways to Romance Book 1) – Spoiler Free book review!

Hello, my Darlings! How are you? I hope this week started amazingly for you. Today I want to talk to you about a book I got as an ARC recently. I’m a big Historical Fiction fan so it was a perfect fit for me. Let’s dive into it!

About the book

ede0755338e6a4e41de86c09614db4f9_decorative-underline-clipart-clipartfest-drawing-art-_370-370

A secret, an unseen witness, and a misunderstanding threaten to keep apart two people who have loved each other their entire lives. When these barriers to love are finally lifted, can she overcome her own insecurities and finally see the truth? 

Racked with guilt and blaming himself for his brother’s death, Phillip Heartford left his ancestral home five years ago.

After losing the love of her life, the beautiful Allison Morgan is resentful and angry. She has rejected countless suitors, and now, in the middle of her third season, she may be out of options.

Allison’s younger sister Julia is an ugly duckling. At least that is how she sees it. Although a happy marriage seems out of her reach, she hopes to one day live a quiet life as a spinster. If she cannot have her own fairytale ending, she is determined to do anything to help her sister and her dear friend, Phillip, find their happiness.

Little does Julia know that Phillip has always loved her. Unfortunately, he believes that it was this love that caused his brother’s death and destroyed Julia’s chance for happiness. He must now take a bride. Having convinced himself that his brother would want him to protect Julia, Phillip intends to become her brother by marrying Allison.

Returning home to fulfill his duty, will Phillip be able to follow his conscience or will his heart interfere?

To Marry a Morgan can be read as a stand-alone romance, though it is part of a sweet Regency series. It is a childhood-friends and second-chance romance. The books of this series, in chronological order, are:

To Marry a Morgan
The Duke and the Damsel (to be released 6/19/19)
Books three through six to be released in 2019

You can find this book

Amazon/Goodreads

My thoughts 

ede0755338e6a4e41de86c09614db4f9_decorative-underline-clipart-clipartfest-drawing-art-_370-370

The story 4/5

Setting of the book4/5

Main Hero 4/5(I loved Julia, but Phillip was just a little bit meeh)

Smexy Times?– Non, a very clean story

I loved the writing style. The Romance between our main couple was really cute . I enjoyed the “flashbacks” from Phillips and Julia’s childhood. I wanted more of those.   It was a good story and I wanted more of it, I really felt like the story could be longer and still amazing(or maybe I just wanted more of this story). Overall I liked it , can’t wait to read the sequel.

4/5 stars

4-stars
