tenor (2)Hello, my beautiful people! How are you all doing? It’s unusually warm in Latvia right now, like +23C (I’m very shocked by that because last year at this time we had snow lying around and now it’s basically summer). Can you all imagine it’s already May? I really can’t, time is going soooo fast! Today we are talking about my last month’s favourites. Let’s start!

Isana Young Active Clear Washcream 

 for oily skin

Very unexpected this become one of my favourites wash creams ever.  It’s cheap, pretty good cleans the skin from excess oil and has a very good cooling effect.

Clinique 3 Piece Anti-Blemish Solutions 3-Step System Kit

I just love this set! As someone who struggles with acne and oily skin, this is AMAZING! Right now I just use the toner and face cream (with the washcream I talked earlier ). Would definitely recommend to try this if you are struggling with acne.

Wrapped In My Wife

by

Alexa Riley

Emily’s been a wife and a mom as a full-time job. But when her twin boys go to kindergarten she finds herself with too much time on her hands.

The Dracula Dossier

by James Reese

About the book ; Author of the New York Times bestseller The Book of Shadows, James Reese returns with a remarkable feat of literary invention. In The Dracula Dossier, Reese combines real historical figures and events—Bram Stoker, Walt Whitman, Jack the Ripper—with glorious speculation in a tour de force of suspense fiction that races non-stop through Victorian London. Bestselling author Michael Connelly raves about The Dracula Dossier, calling it, “a damn good thriller…that had me mesmerized from chapter one.”

Big Miracle

by Tom Rose

About the book ; Now a major motion picture starring Drew Barrymore, Ted Danson, Kristen Bell, Tim Blake Nelson, John Krasinski, and Vinessa Shaw—an account of the dramatic rescue of three gray whales trapped under the ice in Alaska in 1988.
Set in Cold War–era 1988, Big Miracle tells the real story behind the remarkable, bizarre, and oftentimes uproarious event that mesmerized the world for weeks. On October 7, an Inuit hunter near Barrow, Alaska, found three California Gray whales imprisoned in the Arctic ice. In the past, as was nature’s way, trapped whales always died. Not this time. Tom Rose, who was covering the event for a Japanese TV station, compellingly describes how oil company executives, environmental activists, Inupiat people, small business people, and the U.S. military boldly worked together to rescue the whales. He also tells the stories of some of the more than 150 international journalists who brought the story to the world’s attention. The rescue was followed by millions of people around the world as Ronald Reagan and Mikhail Gorbachev joined the forces of their two nations to help free the whales.

The White Princess (The Plantagenet and Tudor Novels #5) by Philippa Gregory

About the book ;When Henry Tudor picks up the crown of England from the mud of Bosworth field, he knows he must marry the princess of the enemy house—Elizabeth of York—to unify a country divided by war for nearly two decades.But his bride is still in love with his slain enemy, Richard III—and her mother and half of England dream of a missing heir, sent into the unknown by the White Queen. While the new monarchy can win power, it cannot win hearts in an England that plots for the triumphant return of the House of York.Henry’s greatest fear is that somewhere a prince is waiting to invade and reclaim the throne. When a young man who would be king leads his army and invades England, Elizabeth has to choose between the new husband she is coming to love and the boy who claims to be her beloved lost brother: the rose of York come home at last.

Stone Maples

by Lena Eltang

About the book ; A detective story that takes place in a fiction small town in Wales.The mysteries of the witchy pension, the cool breeze of the Irish Bay, the Welsh ancient legends, the love story ranging from passion to hate, a mysterious death, which probably was not at all…It is the book of mind-lace, whose heroes change masks and mix their feet so masterly that discovering the secrets of the past for them is as important as understanding the present meaning.

A New Cookbook (Latvian culinary heritage)

About the book ; This one is a pretty cool little book with old recipes(from 1935)that were originally in one of that time cookbooks…And It’s all written in this old Latvian(and I love it)

She needs a fiancé for Christmas, so I’ll pretend.
Hard not to when a gorgeous virgin walks into your strip club.
She’s thinks this is an escort service, and that I’m for hire.
Man is she in the wrong place.

Blair is everything I’m not.
Loving. Gentle. Family girl.
I’m rude, arrogant, and do what the fu@k I want.
Right now, I want her.
So, I’ll play the good fiancé.
Tell the family all the right things.
Kiss her in all the right ways.
And when we’re alone?
I’ll claim that sweet innocence.
Make her soul mine and her body tremble.
I don’t want it to end.
And I damn sure didn’t expect to feel this way.
After this, she’ll have more than just memories.
I have a special gift in mind.

All Kira Blakely novels include alphas who know what they want and know how to treat a lady. This is a full length standalone steamy Christmas romance novel. No cheating, no cliffhanger, and a guaranteed happily ever after.

The Night Circus

by Erin Morgenstern

This book has such a pretty cover. Random fact about me- I love the Circus. Every year, basically next to my house the Circus would come, put that big tent and had 1/2 shows before going to the next town. That’s why I have a soft spot for anything Circus related. I have heard some mixt things about this book, but still, I’m very interested in reading it.

Fallen (Fallen #1)

This is the first book in Latvian who has the English/American hardcover book bind(the one with the dust cover) that I have ever seen, most books in Latvian are in a bibliotic bind.
