MY THOUGHTS :

PACKAGING

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.

OVERALL

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.

I watched “I Love Lucy” first season and it was AMAZING!

About the TV-Show

Cbs No GIF by Paramount+ - Find & Share on GIPHYI Love Lucy is an American television sitcom that originally aired on CBS from October 15, 1951, to May 6, 1957, with a total of 180 half-hour episodes spanning six seasons. The show starred Lucille Ball, 171 I Love Lucy Gifs - Gif Abyssher then real-life husband Desi ArnazVivian Vance, and William Frawley. It followed the life of Lucy Ricardo (Ball), a young middle-class housewife in New York City, who either concocted plans with her best friends Ethel and Fred Mertz (Vance and Frawley) to appear alongside her bandleader husband Ricky Ricardo (Arnaz) in his nightclub, or tried numerous schemes to mingle with, or be a part of show business. New trending GIF tagged eating i love lucy… | Trending GifsAfter the series ended in 1957, a modified version continued for three more seasons with 13 one-hour specials; it ran from 1957 to 1960. It was first known as The Lucille Ball-Desi Arnaz Show and later in reruns as The Lucy-Desi Comedy Hour.I Love Lucy became the most-watched show in the United States in four of its six seasons, and it was the first to end its run at the top of the Nielsen ratings (an accomplishment later matched only by The Andy Griffith Show in 1968 and Seinfeld in 1998).

MY THOUGHTS 

Another vintage Tv Show I am putting on my Favorites List! This is such a classic and I haven’t seen it, being that I’m from Europe. So now Thanks to technology I could watch it and It was amazing. I can totally see why it was (and still is) so popular. It’s easy to watch, funny, and has such a lovable cast. My concern with any old ‘classic” is …How racist and sexist it really is? And I can say it wasn’t that bad(just by watching the first season, can’t comment on the others yet). Yes, it has a big emphasis on the “women place” at home and “men’s place” at the workplace. But taking into the account the year and what was “expected” from people and families in particular at that time,I can’t really criticize. So overall I’m very happy with this TV show, it’s perfect for casual watching when you cook or clean. (And my boyfriend’s parrots love the opening)

The Gentleman’s Guide to Vice and Virtue(Montague Siblings #1)by Mackenzi Lee- book review

joanna-kosinska-kKfVAvdBsAw-unsplash
29283884. sy475

Henry “Monty” Montague was born and bred to be a gentleman, but he was never one to be tamed. The finest boarding schools in England and the constant disapproval of his father haven’t been able to curb any of his roguish passions—not for gambling halls, late nights spent with a bottle of spirits, or waking up in the arms of women or men.

But as Monty embarks on his Grand Tour of Europe, his quest for a life filled with pleasure and vice is in danger of coming to an end. Not only does his father expect him to take over the family’s estate upon his return, but Monty is also nursing an impossible crush on his best friend and traveling companion, Percy.

Still it isn’t in Monty’s nature to give up. Even with his younger sister, Felicity, in tow, he vows to make this yearlong escapade one last hedonistic hurrah and flirt with Percy from Paris to Rome. But when one of Monty’s reckless decisions turns their trip abroad into a harrowing manhunt that spans across Europe, it calls into question everything he knows, including his relationship with the boy he adores.

OVERALL – 3/5 STARS

I know I know…everyone has read it like years ago, so I’m a little late to the party. So…What did I think? To be honest, because of the “hype” this book had I expected much more, but…it was just average. The writing style was good, but the plot was lacking. I wanted more of the world-building. But the romance in this book was cute,I liked it. Was it enjoyable? Yes! Will I ever reread it? No!

FAVORITE QUOTES FROM THE BOOK

“Nice to have you along, Felicity.” I clamp the pipe between my teeth and fish about in my pocket for the flint. “Remind me again where we’re permitted to drop you by the side of the road.”

❤

“How is it that we’ve landed the only bear-leader for hire who’s entirely entirely opposed to the true purpose of the Tour?”“Which is . . . remind me.”“Strong spirits and loose women.”“Sounds instead like it’s going to be weak wine with dinner and handling yourself in your bedroom after.”-

❤

“You are the thieves.”“Monty’s the thief,” Felicity says.“No, I am the second thief. Which I think cancels out my thievery.”

❤

They should be throwing gratitude and kindness and cream puffs at us, though I’d settle for just the cream puffs.

You can Find this product here :Aliexpress

My thoughts :

PACKAGING

The mascara came in a beautiful sealed box with all the ingrediant list and information. The actual mascara tube is made from very sturdy plastic.I really like that the parts Lashprimer and Mascara are labeled.

On the box you can find a QR code and scratch number to make sure your product is original . Such a great idea and truly ,mine was original!And of course the “best before” is a good thing too.

QUALITY AND HOW IT APPLIES

The first you put on Primer. I do around 3/4 coats of it on my lashes. It has little fibers in it ,and they do get into your eyes. It’s not the most pleasant experience,but it’s nothing critical.

After it, we get to the mascara. The want looks pretty average, but the way it’s curved…that’s something new. It’s slightly angled, so you can really get into the corners of your eyes.

What can I say about the application…it’s easy but time-consuming. It’s not bam and ready. You truly need like 5 min just for the mascara(and even more if you are using the primer), and in the mornings sometimes it’s not an option. Another not the greatest thing…it’s messy. But, it’s truly waterproof…like you can go swimming with it and it’s still in your eyes! And it tear-proof(I tested it a few times…don”t ask)

PROS  
  • long-lasting
  • Waterproof
  • Affordable
  • Great gift idea
  • Travel friendly
CONS
  • It’s messy

Overall I really like it and liked it!It’s such a great mascara for summer.

Little Cruelties by Liz Nugent- book review

joanna-kosinska-kKfVAvdBsAw-unsplash

50892432This story begins with a funeral. One of three brothers is dead, mourned by his siblings. But which one? And how? And, most importantly: why?

William, Brian, and Luke are each born a year apart in a lower-middle-class Catholic family in 1960s Dublin. William, the eldest, rises to the top of the heap in the film industry as a successful movie producer. Luke, the baby of the family, surprises everyone by morphing into a worldwide pop star. Brian, the compliant middle son, is the eternal adult in the room: the helpful, steady one, the manager of finances and careers.

But none of them is actually quite what he seems. Wounded by childhood, they have betrayed one another in myriad ways, hiding behind little lies that have developed into full-blown treachery. With an unnerving eye for the complexities of families, Nugent delves into the secret life of a deeply troubled household and provides stunning insights into the many forces that shape us from childhood.

jessica-ruscello-OQSCtabGkSY-unsplash

The story– 3/5

Setting of the book– 3/5

Smexy Times?– YES

OVERALL – 3/5 STARS

First of all, the synopsis is super misleading …it’s not a thriller, but a family drama. As a family drama, it was good. Really showed how our childhood and different events in our lives can make us who we are today. Did I like any of the brothers? No! Did I like the parents? No…Maybe that’s one of the reasons I wasn’t overall invested in this story. We got 3 different points of view, from all 3 of the brothers thru the ages. I usually don’t like the multiple points of view, but here it worked. So the plot… was executed pretty well, it was easy to ‘keep track” where you were in the story. I liked the writing style, very fast-paced. Overall a good family drama…but not what I expected, that’s why just 3 stars.

Nine Rules to Break When Romancing a Rake (Love By Numbers #1) by Sarah MacLean -book review

joanna-kosinska-kKfVAvdBsAw-unsplash

6584134A lady does not smoke cheroot. She does not ride astride. She does not fence or attend duels. She does not fire a pistol, and she never gambles at a gentlemen’s club.

Lady Calpurnia Hartwell has always followed the rules, rules that have left her unmarried—and more than a little unsatisfied. And so she’s vowed to break the rules and live the life of pleasure she’s been missing.

But to dance every dance, to steal a midnight kiss—to do those things, Callie will need a willing partner. Someone who knows everything about rule-breaking. Someone like Gabriel St. John, the Marquess of Ralston—charming and devastatingly handsome, his wicked reputation matched only by his sinful smile.

If she’s not careful, she’ll break the most important rule of all—the one that says that pleasure-seekers should never fall hopelessly, desperately in love.

jessica-ruscello-OQSCtabGkSY-unsplash

The story– 4/5

Setting of the book– 3,8/5

Smexy Times?– YES

OVERALL – 3,9/5 STARS

My first historical romance of the year! And it was pretty good...long, but good(and very quotable ) I read it in one sitting. The story was interesting, I liked Callie and Gabriel together (they did have amazing chemistry, so well done). Some parts did feel a little forced, but it didn’t spoil the story. Overall would recommend it if you love historical steamy romance.

FAVORITE QUOTES FROM THE BOOK

”Of course, one might argue that lurking in the darkness isn’t exactly ladylike.”
“Ah. There you have it wrong. I am not lurking in the darkness. I am hiding in it. Quite a different thing, altogether.”

“Dear Lord,” Callie breathed.
“I’ve tried prayer myself,” Benedick said genially. “It doesn’t seem to work with her. I believe she’s made a deal with the Maker.”

The Mystery of Mrs. Christie by Marie Benedict -book review

joanna-kosinska-kKfVAvdBsAw-unsplash

54221749In December 1926, Agatha Christie goes missing. Investigators find her empty car on the edge of a deep, gloomy pond, the only clues some tire tracks nearby and a fur coat left in the car—strange for a frigid night. Her husband and daughter have no knowledge of her whereabouts, and England unleashes an unprecedented manhunt to find the up-and-coming mystery author. Eleven days later, she reappears, just as mysteriously as she disappeared, claiming amnesia and providing no explanations for her time away.

The puzzle of those missing eleven days has persisted. With her trademark exploration into the shadows of history, acclaimed author Marie Benedict brings us into the world of Agatha Christie, imagining why such a brilliant woman would find herself at the center of such a murky story.

 

jessica-ruscello-OQSCtabGkSY-unsplash

I will start first by saying that I love Agatha Christie ,her books are so dear to me(it was a big part of my childhood). So after seeing this title and reading this synopsis I knew this was something I would enjoy…and I truly did. This book highlighted interesting parts about Agatha’s life I didn’t know and the struggles of “perfect wives” that women were supposed to be. The mystery part was very well developed in my opinion,and the switching chapters from “now” to “then” was an intriguing part of the story. It’s told from multiple points of view ( Agatha’s and her Husband), and it did give the book an extra mystery element. Overall I really enjoyed it – 4 stars 🌟

The story– 4/5

The Vine Witch(The Vine Witch #1)by Luanne G. Smith 

joanna-kosinska-kKfVAvdBsAw-unsplash

46015350. sy475 For centuries, the vineyards at Château Renard have depended on the talent of their vine witches, whose spells help create the world-renowned wine of the Chanceaux Valley. Then the skill of divining harvests fell into ruin when sorcière Elena Boureanu was blindsided by a curse. Now, after breaking the spell that confined her to the shallows of a marshland and weakened her magic, Elena is struggling to return to her former life. And the vineyard she was destined to inherit is now in the possession of a handsome stranger.

Vigneron Jean-Paul Martel naively favors science over superstition, and he certainly doesn’t endorse the locals’ belief in witches. But Elena knows a hex when she sees one, and the vineyard is covered in them. To stay on and help the vines recover, she’ll have to hide her true identity, along with her plans for revenge against whoever stole seven winters of her life. And she won’t rest until she can defy the evil powers that are still a threat to herself, Jean-Paul, and the ancient vine-witch legacy in the rolling hills of the Chanceaux Valley.

40604799Life used to be great for Rose: full of friends, a loving mom, and a growing fashion blog.

But when her mother dies in a car crash, Rose is sent away to live with a strange grandmother she hardly knows and forced to attend a new school where mean girls ridicule her at every turn.

The one place Rose finds refuge is in her grandmother’s Tudor-style greenhouse. But one night, she sees a strange light glowing from within it. She climbs a ladder to investigate . . . and finds herself transported back four hundred years to Hatfield Palace, where she becomes servant and confidante of the banished princess Elizabeth, daughter of King Henry VIII. Rose soon discovers something else surprising—a locket with two mysterious images inside it, both of them clues to her own past.

Could her grandmother’s greenhouse portal offer answers to the mysteries of her family . . . and their secrets? And how will she ever unravel them all?

joanna-kosinska-kKfVAvdBsAw-unsplash

18180495Victor and Eli started out as college roommates—brilliant, arrogant, lonely boys who recognized the same sharpness and ambition in each other. In their senior year, a shared research interest in adrenaline, near-death experiences, and seemingly supernatural events reveals an intriguing possibility: that under the right conditions, someone could develop extraordinary abilities. But when their thesis moves from the academic to the experimental, things go horribly wrong.

Ten years later, Victor breaks out of prison, determined to catch up to his old friend (now foe), aided by a young girl whose reserved nature obscures a stunning ability. Meanwhile, Eli is on a mission to eradicate every other super-powered person that he can find—aside from his sidekick, an enigmatic woman with an unbreakable will. Armed with terrible power on both sides, driven by the memory of betrayal and loss, the archnemeses have set a course for revenge—but who will be left alive at the end?

Long ago, Lore Perseous fled that brutal world in the wake of her family’s sadistic murder by a rival line, turning her back on the hunt’s promises of eternal glory. For years she’s pushed away any thought of revenge against the man–now a god–responsible for their deaths.

Yet as the next hunt dawns over New York City, two participants seek out her help: Castor, a childhood friend of Lore believed long dead, and a gravely wounded Athena, among the last of the original gods.

Firsts by Laurie Elizabeth Flynn -book review(and a little RANT)

joanna-kosinska-kKfVAvdBsAw-unsplash

23480844. sy475 Seventeen-year-old Mercedes Ayres has an open-door policy when it comes to her bedroom, but only if the guy fulfills a specific criteria: he has to be a virgin. Mercedes lets the boys get their awkward, fumbling first times over with, and all she asks in return is that they give their girlfriends the perfect first time- the kind Mercedes never had herself.

Keeping what goes on in her bedroom a secret has been easy- so far. Her absentee mother isn’t home nearly enough to know about Mercedes’ extracurricular activities, and her uber-religious best friend, Angela, won’t even say the word “sex” until she gets married. But Mercedes doesn’t bank on Angela’s boyfriend finding out about her services and wanting a turn- or on Zach, who likes her for who she is instead of what she can do in bed.

When Mercedes’ perfect system falls apart, she has to find a way to salvage her reputation and figure out where her heart really belongs in the process. Funny, smart, and true-to-life, FIRSTS is a one-of-a-kind young adult novel about growing up.

4 stars

So basically it’s a story about a girl who is dealing with her trauma, it’s raw and not pretty. She thinks it’s the right thing to do, but in reality, it’s not. The writing was good, the setting was good too. I enjoyed this book, but my problem…is the ending.  The book didn’t keep everyone accountable for the mistakes they made, there was no therapist for Mercedes to deal with her trauma in a healthy way. Just lots of slut-shame. That’s my only complaint.

Rant(kind of)

This is not really about this book, but more about sex in Ya(young adult) books overall. In the last few years, I have seen a lot of sex in Ya, much more than there was before. Sometimes it’s appropriate(to the story), sometimes it’s not. Sometimes it opens up good discussions, and sometimes it’s not. I’m all about sexual liberation, there is nothing wrong about talking sex or having sex if you are a consenting adult. But when we are talking about actual children(yes, in my mind everyone under the age of 18 is a child), how far is too far? How can we open up a discussion, without promoting unhealthy behaviors. Would love to know your opinion about it.

The Wrong Family by Tarryn Fisher- book review

joanna-kosinska-kKfVAvdBsAw-unsplash

49875586Have you ever been wrong about someone?

Juno was wrong about Winnie Crouch.

Before moving in with the Crouch family, Juno thought Winnie and her husband, Nigel, had the perfect marriage, the perfect son—the perfect life. Only now that she’s living in their beautiful house, she sees the cracks in the crumbling facade are too deep to ignore.

Still, she isn’t one to judge. After her grim diagnosis, the retired therapist simply wants a place to live out the rest of her days in peace. But that peace is shattered the day Juno overhears a chilling conversation between Winnie and Nigel…

She shouldn’t get involved.

She really shouldn’t.

But this could be her chance to make a few things right.

Because if you thought Juno didn’t have a secret of her own, then you were wrong about her, too.

I didn’t expect this book to be THAT good!To be honest I did read a lot of mixed  reviews for The Wives,so I didn’t have any expectations ,And my oh my…IT WAS GOOD!Like WOW! My first favorite of the year. This was unexpected, lots of twists and turns…but at the same time not creepy. The ending shocked me,and that’s pretty hard to do. Great book,would recommend if you want something more ‘real’in your thriller.
