45437704In this captivating new Regency trilogy, bestselling author Ella Quinn picks up where her beloved Worthingtons series left off, as three Lords of London discover true love at last…

Handsome, rakish, incorrigibly flirtatious—Fredrick, Lord Littleton, is notorious. Lady Adeline Wivenly is resolved to keep him at arm’s length during her first Season—until she overhears another woman’s plot to trick him into marriage. Even a rogue is undeserving of such deception, and Adeline feels obliged to warn him—only to find herself perilously attracted…

In the past, Littleton’s charm nearly got him leg-shackled to the wrong woman. Now he’s positive he’s found the right one, for Adeline is everything he wants and needs in a wife. Her sense of justice is so strong she agrees to help him despite her mistrust. But can the ton’s most elusive lord convince the lady he is finally serious about marriage—as long as she will be his bride?

4 stars

Littleton and Adeline’s story was beautifully written, yes it’s started a little bit slower than I would like, but it didn’t ruin the story. I liked the family dynamic we got to see (the matrons were the best). This is a sweeter story than I anticipated. Littleton is very kind and charming, very sweet and considerate. Nothing “rake” about him at all. The whole story we get to see from three points of view- Miss Adelaide,Lord Littleton, and Lord Anglesley. It was a really big surprise for me, but it did give the story another interesting layer. So basically we get a love triangle, but regency style.

If you want something sweet, to read before bed and really be transported to the regency era than this is for you!

If you ask me, he shoulda paid more mind to what she was saying early on. Took him too long to make out that she weren’t the right lid for his pot.”

She had used the word “we.”


I need to find a gentleman to dangle in front of Miss Hanson. He should have a title.”

Nothing like sacrificing your fellow man,” Turley said with feeling.


“He has no desire to marry. Her tone was sharp and bitter. “But he will make a lady think she is his sun, moon, and stars.”

In other words, a rake.


I wonder if she will have to wait to be asked, or if the fact that she is a duchess enables her to propose to the gentleman,” Miss Hanson said.

Lady Bellamny quickly put an end to that speculation. “The only lady allowed to propose to a gentleman is a queen or a princess.”

The Fae Hunter’s Daughter (Whims of Witches #1) by Nissa Leder -Book review

I talked about this book(and many more ) on my new bookstagram account, so if you want to check it out here is the linkaurorasbookcorner

joanna-kosinska-kKfVAvdBsAw-unsplash

When Eden discovers she has magic, she’s thrown into the middle of a supernatural world she never knew existed.

Everything was normal in Eden Brooks’ life until two weeks ago, when in a moment of frustration, she threw a remote across the living room at her twin sister—with her mind. But that’s not all. Somehow, she can make water boil and start a fire without a match.

At first, Eden keeps her newfound abilities a secret. Until she meets Nox at the park near her house. He’s mysterious, witty, and not bad to look at. But more than that, he has magic of his own.

But as Eden gets to know him, she learns his powers aren’t the same as hers and that his motives aren’t as selfless as he pretends. When her dad sees the two of them together, he forbids her from seeing him ever again.

Soon, she learns truths about her father she never thought possible, leading Eden to question everything she knows.

The story– 4/5

Setting of the book– 3/5

Main Hero– We get multiple points of view, so it’s hard to tell anything about it.

Smexy Times?– Non

Overall – 3,5/5 stars

This is the first book I have read from this particular author. My main reason for getting this ebook was the cover😍(and of course the title, who doesn’t love some fea in they’re life). I loved the writing style, the story was interesting and easy to follow. This story is told from multiple points of view, I don’t like books like that, but in this case, it worked, mainly because you could really tell the difference between our heroes. Overall a great easy and fast read, have already gotten the next book and can’t wait to see where this story is going

good

The show on TV was about a bunch of girls competing to win some modeling contract. Two of the contestants were arguing about who deserved to win the show.
Silver’s eyebrow curved. “This is what humans spend their time fighting over?”
Vito sipped his wine. “Wonderful, isn’t it?”

“Lipstick is a tricky thing.” Eden shut Fiona’s door and using the button on the keys, made sure she was locked. “One wrong move of the lips before it’s dry and bad things can happen.”

“My friend seems to have a case of love-at-first-sight,” the girl said. “Which isn’t like him.”

L’Oreal Paris Pure Clay Purity Face Mask – review

If you are new here Hello My name is Anna and I have Oily and Acne-prone skin, so all my opinions are based on my skin and it’s needs.

About the product :

loreal for blogFor the first time, the L’Oréal Paris laboratories have selected three pure clays and combined them with eucalyptus extract, known for its purifying properties. The creamy texture works deep into the pores, leaving skin purified and matte-looking, without drying it out.

Benefits

A powerful blend of 3 pure clays

Montmorillonite – Rich in minerals, a clay recognized for helping to eliminate imperfections.
Ghassoul – A pure clay highly concentrated in minerals renowned to help clarify the complexion.

 Polysorbate 20, Butylene Glycol, Propylene Glycol,
 Oryza Sativa Starch / Rice Starch, Eucalyptus Globulus Leaf Extract,

MY THOUGHTS

To be totally honest I didn’t buy it myself but got it from one of my friends who got it but didn’t like it after the first use(and in Latvia, you can’t exchange cosmetic products or get money back). So because she knows I have an oily skin type and like clay masks, she gave it to me. I have already tried some masks from this range(you can read about it here).

loreal for blog 1-horz

So about the actual mask. It’s very drying like overly drying and tightening, I actually love those kinds of masks because of my oily skin…but even for me at this time of the year when my skin is a little bit dryer this was too much. If you have dry patches or have a dry skin type this is definitely not for you. This mask did help with acne, my face got more cleaner and it was longer matt, but it’s more like once a week face mask not every other day one! But the main thing I didn’t like is, there isn’t a lot of product in it. Like the packaging is pretty heavy, the product in it…there isn’t much of it inside. And it does dry out pretty quickly after opening the jar, so keep that in mind if you get it.

OVERALL

I would recommend for anyone who has oily skin and acne-prone skin.

4 stars

20200309_132420_268Pros

  • glass jar(we are here for the packaging)
  • helps with imperfections
  • My oily skin liked it

Cons  

  • not cheap
  • not travel-friendly
  • not an everyday type of mask

*Latvia is going on Quarantine for 2 weeks, so I got ebooks* – Haul

Hello, My Darlings! How are you all feeling? So in Latvia because of this pandemic, schools and universities are closed until the 14 of April. All events are canceled until April and our borders are closing too. So no coming to Latvia or leaving for some time. The first-day people where panicking, buying toilet paper and buckwheat. It was a mess, but now…I can totally feel the vibe is much more relaxed. But let’s not talk about the bad thing, let’s talk about books! I got some books to read , let’s dive into it.


My Perfect Wife
joanna-kosinska-kKfVAvdBsAw-unsplash
49344568._SY475_I finally have everything I ever wanted. A home with floor-to-ceiling windows, a devoted husband who dazzles everyone he meets, and two angelic children I adore. But as I watch my husband chatting with the girl next door, I wonder if anyone can see the sadness in my pretty pink smile, or hear the scream behind my straight white teeth?

I know I’m crazy to think there’s a hint of desire in his eyes.

I know it’s madness to see a flicker of fear in hers.

I know all this, because I’ve been wrong before.

And if I’m wrong again, he’ll try to take my children away.

The party is my last chance to prove to my husband that I’m on the mend, that I can handle something as simple as a drinks reception without snapping under the pressure. It’s all going perfectly until I see something in the swimming pool that changes everything. But if I can’t trust myself to believe it’s real, who will?

A totally unputdownable page-turner about the darker side of love and what really goes on under the surface of perfect-looking lives. Clever and unexpected, this book will have you gripped from the very first page until the dramatic final twist. Fans of The Wife Between Us and The Mother-in-Law will be hooked.

 
Why I got it : The description sounded very intriguing. I love thrillers and mysteries, and what can be better than domestic suspense? A great book to read on a rainy day.

Why I got it : I love Holly Black’s writing, and this sounded like something I will enjoy. And guys…the cover, I need it as a physical book.Can’t wait to read it and give you my honest thoughts.

The Fae Hunter’s Daughter is the first book in Whims of Witches, a stand-alone series which takes places in the same world, after the events of the Whims of Fae series.

 

Why I got it : Can we all appreciate the covers?! This was a total cover buy for me, I hope those books will be good. Have you read them? Did you like it?

Of Beast and Beauty

(Daughters of Eville #1)

joanna-kosinska-kKfVAvdBsAw-unsplash
Something evil this way comes.
7 Vengeful Sisters
7 Fairytale Kingdoms
7 Daughters of Eville

Everyone dreams of marrying a prince—except for me. I am nothing more than a pawn in my adoptive mother’s diabolical plot against the seven kingdoms.I was the chosen tool, her sharpened blade that would cut the deepest into the heart of the Kingdom of Baist. But like all deadly weapons, my wedding is two-edged sword that could cost me my soul.

For I am Rosalie, one of the adopted daughters of Lady Eville, and it is my duty to enter into a loveless and hate-filled marriage with the narcissistic Crown Prince of Baist. My choices and heart are not my own to give. Yet even in the thick of dire situations, beastly vengeance can give way to beautiful attraction

Of Glass and Glamour

(Daughters of Eville #2)

Born under a hunter’s moon, abandoned as a child, I was raised to be a powerful sorceress—okay, a mediocre sorceress. All right, I’m good at glamour and can make things sparkle, if my spells don’t backfire. It was foretold long ago that I was a child of prophecy that would unite the fae and humans of Candor. The only problem, no one told me, and now the king wants me dead.

For I am Eden, one of the adoptive daughters of Lady Eville, and I have to attend the royal masquerade ball—not to win a prince, but to avenge my parents. Even if it means pretending to be a fairy godmother and wreaking a little havoc.

 

Why I got it : I love retellings and those sounded amazing! I have never heard of this author and can’t wait to read something from someone I haven’t yet discovered.

Magnolia Cove Series By Ella Fields(Short Review)- Spoiler free

Kiss and Break Up
(Magnolia Cove #1)

joanna-kosinska-kKfVAvdBsAw-unsplash

44285993._SY475_Dashiell Thane wasn’t a nice guy.
He was an abrasive, demanding, conniving, intolerable brat.
Yet somehow, we’d been best friends our whole lives.
Until our senior year when I finally decided to dip my toes into the dating pool.

All it took was one kiss for jealousy, lies, and betrayal to sweep in and propel us heart first into dizzying, hostile depths.

You’re not supposed to kiss your best friend.
You’re definitely not supposed to kiss your best friend while you’re dating someone else.
And the absolute worst thing you could do is fall for your best friend.
Unless, of course, you want to ruin everything.

jessica-ruscello-OQSCtabGkSY-unsplash

I was up the whole night to finish this book, so you can say I was invested! I really really liked it…but did I love it? Not really, there were moments I felt where dragging a little bit. But did it make the story less interesting and sweet? No, totally not. I would recommend it if you like angsty romance stories.

3,8/5 stars

 

Forever and Never
(Magnolia Cove #2)

joanna-kosinska-kKfVAvdBsAw-unsplash

43411673._SY475_Lars Bradby was supposed to be my forever.
That was before we found out he would become a father at the tender age of eighteen.

For years, he’d watched me.
For months, he’d wanted me.
For weeks, he’d chased me.

Relentless and infuriating, he turned my stubborn heart into something pliable and weak.
Sly and honest, he worked his way into my life as though he’d always planned to be the focal point of it.

In love and naive, even when our future seemed bleak, I believed in us.
Heartbroken and desperate, I tore my bleeding heart from my chest, wanting only the best for him.

In doing so, our forever wasn’t just interrupted. It was chased away with one irreversible decision after another.
And now, we could no longer see it beneath the heaping piles of debris we’d left in our wake.

jessica-ruscello-OQSCtabGkSY-unsplash

After reading the first one, I decided to read the whole series. This was a very raw and emotional read. Definitely more intense than the first book. A very honest story of love, life and growing up. I loved it, would definitely recommend it.

4/5 stars

 

Hearts and Thorns
(Magnolia Cove #3)

joanna-kosinska-kKfVAvdBsAw-unsplash

44420747._SY475_Jackson Thorn was my best friend and worst enemy, but that didn’t stop me from wanting him.

From first words to high school halls, our childhood years braided a bond that wove in a direction neither of us could predict or outgrow.

Forbidden became a word we ignored.
It wasn’t that we didn’t care.
It was that we cared too much.

We had it all planned out.
We thought we could make it.
We thought we’d been careful.
But all we managed to do was prolong the inevitable.
Our destruction.

Hearts and Thorns is a standalone full length new adult stepbrother romance

jessica-ruscello-OQSCtabGkSY-unsplash

This book blew my mind! I didn’t expect the road it took. I’m really trying not to spoil it, because of how much my mind was blown… just read it! And yes, it does drag a little bit in the middle but the ending…it makes up for it.

4/5 stars

 

What I loved about this book Series

  • Unexpected plot-twists I didn’t see coming
  • Realistic teen romance
  • Has a heavy “Gossip Girl” vibe

Hello, My Darlings! And Hey if you are new here, it’s so nice to see you! Today I want to talk about some goodies I got from Avon.

MY THOUGHTS

It’s the first skincare item I have tried from a Lithuanian brand, and it wasn’t bad. So I paid around 4.99 euros for this 150 ml face wash, not cheap in my opinion. I have tried this product just a few times, so it’s truly a “first impression”. What can I say…it has a creamy consistency, not gel-like but more like a thin moisturizer. It has a very strong pine scent, it’s not overbearing but still not something I would want in my skincare. It didn’t dry out my skin,but my mom who has a dry skin type did say it was too drying for her. I would say this face wash is more for someone who was a combination/normal skin type.

OVERALL

 Pros

  • Made in Lithuania
  • with natural extracts
  • Anti-Age properties
  • doesn’t dry out the skin

Cons  

  • has a strong woodsy scent
  • not cheap

“Truce? Hating Elijah Monroe” by Amelia Kingston – This book Made me Cry……(book review)

joanna-kosinska-kKfVAvdBsAw-unsplash

A small town enemies-to-lovers romantic comedy.

Harper Delaney is a newly certified elementary school teacher with the mountain of student loan debt to prove it. Moving back to her claustrophobically small hometown is about as tempting as two-week-old sushi, but the allure of free rent and a guaranteed summer teaching job are undeniable.

On the hunt for her dream job in San Francisco, Harper just needs to survive the summer without murdering Elijah Monroe. He may have grown into a scorchingly hot fireman, but he’s still her nemesis. Harper gave Elijah her heart when she was sixteen, and never forgave the jerk for not wanting it. Probably for the best, since he’s also her stepbrother.

Elijah still makes Harper’s blood boil and heart race. And he knows it. She’ll wipe that smug smirk off his gorgeous face before leaving town. The only question is if she wants to do it with a kiss or a slap.

And it made me cry, this book made me cry ugly tears in the middle of the night. You know why? Because of the sweet ending…

Why isn’t it longer??? I need more, much more! Give me more!

Overall an amazing book, would recommend.

No matter what I say, the sun will always rise and set on Elijah in his mother’s eyes. He could murder a puppy while setting an elementary school on fire and she’d still sing his praises. That’s what mothers do.


“I don’t know what you’re talking about. I’m a strong, independent woman. Who’s going to go eat a pint of ice cream in your honor.”


I know it’s been too long since I’ve had a date when my first thought at seeing a firetruck pull up outside the school isn’t Oh, no. Where’s the fire? but Oh, yes. Where are the firemen!


“Shut up. He’s always the one who starts it. Don’t take his side.”
“Not taking sides, darling. I’m just saying he’s not the only one with a razor-sharp tongue. You can hold your own.”


Bethany places her hand on her heart and smiles wide. “How fun. Those little ones are sweet, but they must be exhausting. I don’t know how you have the patience.”
“Easy. I’ve lived with Elijah Monroe. There’s no better practice for dealing with immaturity.


“But, it’s at Elijah’s fire station and I really need you to run interference.”
She cocks her head to the side and asks, “Interference?”
“Yeah, in case he starts in with the snide comments and I try to kill him.”
You know my favorite thing about you? Your emotional maturity. I’m so glad you’re state-certified to teach the future of America.”

February Favorites(2020 edition)

Hello, my Darlings. How are you? It’s so nice to see you on my blog. February was a slow month for me, I got sick and did stay in bed for the majority of the month. So, of course, I read a lot of books and watched some old tv shows. But I did have some favorites this month too…so let’s dive into it!

Oriflame “Milk & Honey”Hand and Body cream

This is one of the best creams I have ever used(no joke)! Like it helps moisturize your skin but isn’t greasy. Has a light, but very lovely scent(I’m obsessed). I’m definitely buying more!

Essence Prime+ studio Mattifying +pore minimizing Primer with black clay 

One of my favorite primers ever! This really helps with pore minimizing but doesn’t clog up pores. Would recommend!

Avon True Supreme Nourishing lipsticks in the color Softest Peony

Our weather was colder in February, so I didn’t wear a lot of matt lipsticks. This one was my lifesaver, this is a hydrating but a long-lasting lipstick! Has a beautiful semi-sheer finish. I really like it.

For this one, I have two books. Both made me very emotional, but in a good way.

The first one is The Bromance Book Club (Bromance Book Club #1) by Lyssa Kay Adams

This was my DYRC20 pick for February (here is the full review). All I can say it’s an amazing book, and you need to check it out!

and the second one “Truce? Hating Elijah Monroe” by Amelia Kingston

47885456._UY2048_SS2048_

This made me cry in the best way possible, there will be a review next week. So stay tuned for that!

The family at 1313 Mockingbird Lane is a little… different. Dad Herman looks like Frankenstein’s monster; mom Lily and her dad, Grandpa, are vampires; and son Eddie is a werewolf. Poor Marilyn, their niece, is the odd one out — she’s just a normal girl. And the family doesn’t like to call attention to her unfortunate looks.
