Book Club : The Butterfly Garden

img_0248

(Photo via @stateofsp on Instagram) Like last month, I’ve become increasingly interest in the thriller/mystery genre. I think of all the style of books, they’re the easiest to read and have the biggest “pay off” if you will. I love a good twist, and I love solving puzzles, so mysteries let me do both! This month I discovered that with my Amazon Prime membership I also get to read a collection of books for free! The highest rated Prime book […]

Holy-Grail Lotion For Smooth Skin

Winter is coming. And that means dry skin is coming *screams internally*. I literally always struggle to get silky smooth skin on my body. I think it’s because I focus so much on moisturizing my face, that I forget about my poor legs! Well the day came when I realized I had to do something because my skin was so terribly ashy! Charlee and I went and got pedicures, and when they put the oil and lotion on the bottom […]

Title: The Girl On The Train Author: Paula Hawkins # of Pages: 323 Release Date: January 13, 2015 Category: Phycological Thriller, Mystery My Rating: 6/10 Girl on the Train is a classic murder mystery – with a modern twist.

2 Holy-Grail Detox Waters

lemon-water-1-1

It’s a common understanding that detox waters, though looking cute in your clear stylish water bottle, rarely do all that much. In my opinion, the very best detox waters are those that taste so yummy that they stop you from craving sodas, teas, and coffee throughout your day! Plus, the real holy-grail here is drinking lots of water period! So in light of this I wanted to share my two favorite “detox waters” that will now be referred to as […]

In search of girly/pastel hues – Charlee and I decided to have some fun in Nordstrom! Nordstrom is a great place to get clothes from all different brands (did you know they carry J Crew now?!?), but they can also be pricy… We had some time to kill so I figured I’d share the pieces I tried on and what I thought! A.K.A. a dressing room diary 😉 So that’s all I tried on at Nordstrom – I was definitely burning […]

Oh my gosh how awesome are dogs?!?! I had one growing up that I loved to death, even though she didn’t care too much about anyone else *eye roll*. But after she passed I wasn’t too keen on getting another dog – the internet had convinced me cats were where it’s at – and then my cat also didn’t care too much about anyone else *intense eye roll*. Unfortunately, because of Charlee’s allergy we couldn’t keep the cat, and even […]

It’s fall – which means it’s time to embrace the basic b*tch in us all with STARBUCKSSSSS!!! Money Saving Tips Order an Iced Coffee with extra milk instead of an Iced Latte! It’s cheaper AND you can get refills throughout the day!
