Book Review - The Night Raven by Sarah Painter

I was very fortunate to be sent a copy of The Night Raven, book 1 in the Crow Investigations series by Sarah Painter in exchange for an honest review. The Night Raven is an urban fantasy mystery set in contemporary London and is currently available from The Book Depository and Amazon.

Which is why she carved her own life as a private investigatorRead More →

Sample Shoutout - June: Skincare Edition

The later not only gives me migraines, but also makes me really irritable. I think I now know why I’m so sensitive to it, so that’s a plus and a future blog post in itself, however, the movie thing is working. So here’s a run down on what I’ve watched this month and my thoughts on them. (PleaseRead More →

Sharing Saturday: 2016 beauty products

Here are my top 4 recommendations!     Hide it! Concealer Palette by Technic   Thanks to my dermatillomania spot out breaks for me are an even bigger nightmare. It has taken me years to finally find products that work for my skin and work to help hide the signs and scars. This product is not a BIG part of that routine (as you can see from the very used palette!). IRead More →
