55285911The elves come for two things: war and wives. In both cases, they come for death.

Three-thousand years ago, humans were hunted by powerful races with wild magic until the treaty was formed. Now, for centuries, the elves have taken a young woman from Luella’s village to be their Human Queen.

To be chosen is seen as a mark of death by the townsfolk. A mark nineteen-year-old Luella is grateful to have escaped as a girl. Instead, she’s dedicated her life to studying herbology and becoming the town’s only healer.

That is, until the Elf King unexpectedly arrives… for her.

FAVORITE QUOTES FROM THE BOOK

“Our work is what we do, not who we are.


“Love is choice,”


They don’t care. I’m just a tool to them to make their flowers bloom and fields fertile. I’m a walking bag of manure in their eyes.


“Because for all my life I was told I was waiting for just one woman. But if I spent my years sequestered and alone for nothing, then please let me know. I’d love to know what options I have.”


“You are a moody prince glorified with a thorny-looking, iron crown,”


“You will respect me!” Eldas shouts.“Be someone worthy of respecting first!” I slam the door behind me.


“Your Grace, Her Majesty and…Her Majesty’s wolf.”

I Rewatched “Gossip Girl” and it’s even better then I remember!

Hello, My Darlings! Do you remember Gossip girl?if not then you are probably too young or lived under the rock in 2008 because this was the “Riverdale” of early 2010. And with a remake in the works, this is the time to revisit it.

Blair and Chuck judging you for not watching Gossip Girl

I loved watching all the new episodes on my tv after school, it was such a great mix of mystery, romance, and teen drama. We were all intrigued by who was this Gossip Girl but more with the lives of those rich kids in New York. For a kid in Latvia, it was like discovering a whole new world, and at the same time finding how similar my friend group was to those kids(Like my childhood/early teen years was drama and scheming fueled, so many situations in the show was similar to those we had).To be honest, I don’t think it even needs a remake because of how good it was.

original

At the start of 2020, I wanted to watch something nostalgic, so I binge-watched the whole 6 seasons in the first week and it was even better then I remember. This was exactly what I needed, THIS SHOW WAS SOOOOO FRICKING GOOD. I really don’t want to spoil anything, because I want you all to watch it (that’s why I will try to be very brief). I loved the friendship between Blair and Selena, how they managed to go from frenemies to actual best friends forever.

The relationship between Chuck and Blair was much healthier then I remember. In my mind, it was a little bit more toxic, dysfunctional like “I can’t live without you, but I can’t live with you” kinda thing. And it wasn’t really that, but more like “I love you, but we need to grow up”.Overall the thing I understand from them is I need my own Chuck Bass in my life if you know where to get one leave it down below.

Hello, world! Today I want to talk about something important. If you didn’t know the European Parliament are in the process of voting for article 13, that will change the internet as we know it.

So what is Article 13? (Because I’m very bad at explaining stuff in English  ,here you have some good educational videos )

 

 

What can we do about it? First of all talk about it, bring community awareness about Article 13 and why it’s a problem using the hashtag #SaveYourInternet . Second ,I did find a petition on change.org that you can sign here !

That’s it from me

Sorry about the crappy swatch picture

I still haven’t opened powder and eyeshadows, so I can’t say anything bad or good about them. About products that I have tried, I can say positive things, for now, my favorite of all is the mascara, it gives your lashes very natural look and is not clumpy. I think will do a look with all of the products in the future.
