I got it from my friend, it was the wrong color match for her(in Latvia you can’t exchange cosmetic products) and she was like-You are super pale, here you go. And if you know me, I always love to try new products. So…I loved this one. It’s not oily and doesn’t break me out. The color is not the best match( I have Light), but in the summer it’s good.
From Martin Luther’s Wittenberg Theses by Meika Roth-Beka and Klauss Enzikat
This was very interesting. It’s a short story of Martin Luther and his Theses that changed the Christian world. It’s a picture book, but it’s not for children(I would say it’s for ages 12 and up). It would be a good supplement for history lessons.
Sisyphus The Myth
I have watched the first 4 episodes,and my mind was blown. It’s so good!Can’t wait to see were the story will go.
Tak Dong Kyung has been working hard ever since her parents passed away. Her life seemed more stable after working as a web novel editor for 6 years, but then she gets diagnosed with glioblastoma (brain cancer). She blames her unlucky life and wishes to curse everything to disappear, which unintentionally calls Myeol Mang, Doom himself – neither human nor god – to appear. Myeol Mang says that he can grant Dong Kyung’s wishes. As her last hope, she makes a contract with Myeol Mang for a hundred days to live how she wants, risking her everything.
The first 4 episodes were the best Tv experience I had in ages. It was engaging, fun, and the chemistry between our main leads sizzling…but after, it was just going downhill. The writing got sloppy in places, the actors still did a good job, but I wasn’t invested anymore. Like it wasn’t super bad, just my expectation was higher.
THE CHEMISTRY BETWEEN OUR MAIN COUPLE(S)?
The main couple had pretty good chemistry, so that’s amazing. We had a love triangle, but the twist…it was our secondary leads. It was done okay, I wasn’t super excited about it. But the chemistry was okay.
HOW IT ENDS
I expected a Hotel Del Luna kind of ending, but no…It was the opposite. To be honest I don’t know if I liked it, or not. Very mixed feelings.
The Call (Korean: 콜; RR: Kol), also known as Call, is a 2020 South Korean thriller film directed by Lee Chung-hyun, starring Park Shin-hye and Jeon Jong-seo. Based on the 2011 British and Puerto Rican film The Caller, The Call revolves around Seo-yeon (If you are looking for something mind-bending, intriguing, and unexpected then this is for you! It does explore the question-what of you could stop something awful from happening? Is it worth it?) and Young-sook (Jeon Jong-seo), two women from different times who connect through a phone call which interchanges their fates. The film is originally to be released theatrically but cancelled due to COVID-19 pandemic. It was released on Netflix globally on November 27, 2020.
Thanks to Netflix I watched this one and I honestly loved it. Park Shin-Hye did an amazing job, I love her so much(she is such a talented actress). The last movie I watch with her as the main protagonist was #ALIVE(and it was amazing).Also, the actress Jeon Jong-seo who played the girl from “past” was super good in her role. Uhhhh it was great,would recommend it for a evening after work watch. Just keep in mind …there are lots of blood and maybe some missing body parts.
If you are looking for something mind-bending, intriguing, and unexpected then this is for you! It does explore the question –what if you could stop something awful from happening?Would you stop it and Is it worth it?
Italy, 1453. Seventeen-year-old Luca Vero is brilliant, gorgeous—and accused of heresy. Cast out of his religious order for using the new science to question old superstitious beliefs, Luca is recruited into a secret sect: The Order of the Dragon, commissioned by Pope Nicholas V to investigate evil and danger in its many forms, and strange occurrences across Europe, in this year—the end of days.
Isolde is a seventeen-year-old girl shut up in a nunnery so she can’t inherit any of her father’s estate. As the nuns walk in their sleep and see strange visions, Isolde is accused of witchcraft—and Luca is sent to investigate her, but finds himself plotting her escape.
Despite their vows, despite themselves, love grows between Luca and Isolde as they travel across Europe with their faithful companions, Freize and Ishraq. The four young people encounter werewolves, alchemists, witches, and death-dancers as they head toward a real-life historical figure who holds the boundaries of Christendom and the secrets of the Order of the Dragon
The story– 4/5
Setting of the book– 4/5
Smexy Times?– non
OVERALL – 4/5 STARS
This one was a good surprise. The reviews were mixed, so I expected a 3 star read at most…but It was a solid 4! The story was engaging, the writing was phenomenal and you could easily immerse yourself in the story. I liked Luca and Isolde, and the internal battles they had(and everything they ever knew). I expected magic, like actual magic, but it was mostly about what people at that time thought was “magic”.This would be perfect for like 7/8 grader who is learning about the middle ages as a supplement, and I think it was written with that in mind. Overall great book, can’t wait to read the next one.
A male chef (Choi Jin Hyuk) has risen up the ranks to find a job cooking for the country’s top politicians in the South Korean presidential residences, the Blue House.
He is something of a dreamer – but one day finds himself in the body of a young queen from Korea’s past, Kim So Yong (Shin Hye Sun).
Kim So Yong’s husband is the reigning monarch, King Cheol Jong (Kim Jung Hyun). However, he is only king in name – the late King Sunjo’s Queen, Sun Won (Bae Jong Ok), has taken advantage of Cheol Jong’s better nature, and is ruling the realm in his name.
Queen Sun Won’s brother Kim Jwa Guen (Kim Tae Woo) also has designs on power.
However, Kim So Yong soon discovers that King Cheol Jong harbors secrets, and is not as gentle and meek as he seems…
When I watched the first episode…I was like…WHAT?!But after the second and third episodes, I was in love. The plot was very well done, very original. As someone who has seen dozens of kdramas, it’s very hard to surprise me…but this drama surprised me a lot! The acting was AMAZING, Shin Hye Sun did a phenomenal job playing a man stuck in a female body. I loved the costumes, the atmosphere, everything about this drama was great.
THE CHEMISTRY BETWEEN OUR MAIN COUPLE(S)?
The chemistry was thru the roof! I loved the love/hate relationship the king and our young queen had, it was fun to watch. And It was believable, and that’s the most important thing in a drama.
HOW IT ENDS
This is why it’s not a 5-star drama…THE ENDING. It was…mehhh.Like, it just was so average, of course, I understand it’s hard to do something extraordinary with this story in a very conservative country(that is South Korea), but I expected more.

My thoughts :
Packaging is pretty simple, very “classically” Garnie. Easy to open. I would prefer the packaging to be translucent or at least white, but you can’t have it all.
QUALITYAND MY HAIR AFTER USING IT
The quality (from what I can tell)is good. Very thick consistency, has a pleasant scent…but it’s strong, so not everyone will like it. This is perfect for very dry and dry hair, if you have an oily scalp…it’s not for you. As an oily scalp owner, but as someone who has very dry hairs (I dye my hair a LOT), this helped my hair be more healthy. But…it makes your scalp super oily. Overall, I liked it.
Maren Partridge loves working in her family’s dream shop where she can hand-craft any dream imaginable. The shop has only one rule. Dreams cannot be given to a person without their consent. Maren has no problem with this—until her sister, Hallie, has an accident that leaves her in a coma. Maren’s certain she can cure Hallie with a few well-chosen dreams. And when no one is watching, she slips her a flying dream.
But a strange new customer from the shop has been following Maren and knows what she did. Now she’s laid the perfect trap to blackmail Maren into creating custom nightmares for a dark and terrible purpose. As Maren gets drawn further into the sinister scheme, she must make a choice: to protect her family or to protect the town from her family’s magic.
This one was okay…Was it interesting? Yes. Would I read it again? Nope. Magic realism inspired fairytale about family, hope, and dreams. It has strong Lemony Snicket vibes and I loved it. Maren was an interesting main hero, she was a completed one (so not one-dimensional) and that’s amazing. Overall a good book for any middle grader.

MY THOUGHTS :
I have an oily scalp,but dry ends. So seeing this shampoo I knew I needed to try it. So I did! For a month I tried it and here are my thoughts.
Pretty simple pink plastic bottle with a black cap. The bottle is translucent,so that’s nice, you can see how much of the product is still left.
QUALITY AND SCENT
It smells amazing! Such a beautiful scent that stays on your hair for hours after washing. The quality is very good.The shampoo is thick and you don’t need a lot of product too really clean your hair(and that’s good).
MY HAIR AFTER MONTH OF USE
My hair feels strong, but not super healthy. It’s a good shampoo, but it’s not my favorite. It did help my scalp with the excess oil. Will I repurchase it? Yes, but only at a discount.
The Books of the Bible (New Testament) is a revolutionary new presentation of Scripture that strips away centuries of artificial formatting, leaving behind nothing but pure Bible text. The result is a Bible unlike any other available today, but more like the original Scriptures. The Books of the Bible is specially designed to be read from start to finish, as if you were reading a novel. Natural literary breaks have been restored and the books have been rearranged chronologically, rather than by length, leading to a more authentic presentation of the Bible. There is also a helpful introduction to each book that sets the text in context, rather than adding explanation or application. The NIV text is also set in single-column format, rather than in two columns as you usually find in the Bible. This aids reading longer chunks at a time, as you would if you were reading a novel for pleasure.
This edition features colour photos from the LUMO Project films of the four Gospels – Matthew, Mark, Luke and John. The project has been informed by leading world experts’ latest theological, historical and archaeological research on every aspect of life in first-century Palestine. It was shot on location in Morocco, using the very latest 35mm digital film cameras to ensure picture quality of the very highest standard across a number of platforms – cinema, broadcast, BluRay, DVD, and the web. The voice-over script is taken from the NIV Bible but the films have been shot with the intention of overlaying the Bible text in any language. These multi-language Biblical resources are set to transform the way in which people engage, discover and study the life of Jesus through the Gospels.
This was the answer to my prayers. I was praying for the right bible for me and I found this one at a very great discount in my local bookstore. As someone who is pretty new to bible reading, this looked AMAZING(and to be honest it is!)
First of all, it has maps to see how the region looked at the time of Jesus. As well as the “Chronology of the Drama” (that’s basically the whole bible story in chronological order).
It doesn’t have the verses numbered on the actual page, but on the corner, and because of that, it’s easier to read, not too intimidating. I love that, but I know that not everyone will like it. The print size is very good, my eyes don’t hurt after reading and that’s amazing. Overall This is a great bible for a new believer or anyone who is new to reading a bible, It’s easy to read and understand. The photos help to fully immerse in the scriptures.

• Size: 30ml • Top note: Honeysuckle • Middle note: Ylang-ylang • Base note: Milkwood
MY THOUGHTS :
I got the 30 ml bottle, so it’s different from the “big” bottle. It came in a cute cardboard box without the plastic wrap(didn’t like that). It’s made from sturdy glass with a plastic cap. Avon has two types of bottles for their 30 ml fragrances, and I can say this type I’m enjoying much more. It’s easier to bring with you.
QUALITY AND SCENT
This is truly a “little black dress” kind of scent! Like…it’s so universal, perfect for every day and any occasion. It’s not too sweet or too strong and can say many people will like it. Was it my favorite? Not really, but I do like it. The quality is great, and it stays on for 4 h straight on your skin.
I got this scent for under 4 euros and that’s an amazing deal! The quality is great and it would make a cute gift for someone(maybe like a Mother’s day gift). Overall I would totally recommend this perfume.
great for everyday use
you can get 30 ml, 50 m, or 100 ml
Great gift idea
You can’t buy it in a store, just from a representative
