Goodreads Review: Waves of Passion by Lori Ann Mitchell

Waves of Passion: Contemporary Romance (Holidays Beach Read Book 3)Waves of Passion: Contemporary Romance by Lori Ann Mitchell
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

This is the perfect guilty pleasure read.
I have read the other Waves books, this is number 3.
First of all, I have to say Sage and Derek are really interesting characters. Sage is older while Derek is in his 20s. I love the twist on the May December relationship.
Mitchell does a great job of revealing the insecurities an older woman would have dating a young and incredibly hot man. Derek is lovable and he has matured over the books.
This story brings the lovers some unexpected changes. They will be separated temporarily as a result and the book reveals whether they can survive this situation as a couple or fall apart.
There were some interesting twists and I found myself reading through it in one sitting.
For a quick racy, enjoyable read, give the Waves series a try!

Planned Coincidence: A Thrilling Suspense Novel (International Mystery & Crime)Planned Coincidence: A Thrilling Suspense Novel by Dana Arama
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

This novel kept me enthralled from beginning to end!
The story begins with Gabi, a vibrant woman who is feeling as if her marriage is going through the motions and a loving mother.
Her family owned an Art Gallery which she has taken over and her husband never celebrates her successes, only reminds her how costly the gallery is.
One day, Gabi makes a choice that she later believes changed her life forever. As we read on, we learn that there is so much Gabi does not know.
This story has everything. Mystery, intrigue, Russuan Mafia and passion.
As Gabi works to rebuild her life with the help of Guy, a young man willing to do anything to protect her, we find that nothing was quite as it seemed.1
I loved every moment of this book but the end left me wanting so much more!
It is my hope that Arama will write a sequel to this. Arama is such a talented author. The characters are so real and the plot twists have been expertly spun.
This novel will not disappoint, it is full of mystery and intrigue.

Goodreads Review: Trouble in Paradise by Lyle Howard

Trouble in ParadiseTrouble in Paradise by Lyle Howard
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I love a good mystery. I love venturing into the world of what if.
I am also very amused by the stories that start with an idea that someone has left a certain aspect of their life behind them and then the universe brings them a scenario where they have to use their knowledge from the past to get through a current situation. I believe that once we have a skill, we can never quite “let it lie” as we move forward in life.
The start of the novel had me hooked, it was so mysterious and left you wanting to know more.
Howard is a very talented author and I thoroughly enjoyed this adventure into “What if”
A mysterious vessel, missing patrons, the plot has so many twists and turns that you simply must read it to the end.

To check it out for yourself,  you can buy it on Amazon http://www.amazon.com/Trouble-Paradise-Thrilling-Supernatural-Mystery-ebook/dp/B0151XPM62/ref=sr_1_sc_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1449447383&sr=8-1-spell&keywords=troublein+paradise+lyl+howard

The Dreadful AlchemistThe Dreadful Alchemist by Charles Z David
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

This book was a whirlwind. While it is not my usual genre, with everything happening in the news these days, this book felt quite real.
The premise is focussed on Ollie, a Swedish man who goes to join the Islamic Stat fanatics. There is so much intrigue, action and double crossing plot twists that you will find yourself immersed from start to finish.
The book is definitely not for the faint of heart or younger readers as it outlines graphic violence and sexual situations but is a thrilling ride for those up to the challenge.
With nuclear warfare that sounds all too plausible in this day and age and complex characters, there is lots in this book to entertain any reader.

Best Bronze Self Tanning Spray Review

Share Button

2015-11-08 21.27.232015-11-08 21.28.27

Hi Friends

As you know, I am a 38 year old Ginger with pale skin and freckles.  Needless to say, I have tried many self tanning products over the years in search of one that would give my skin a natural looking, sun kissed golden glow.  I have found that with my pale skin, every little streak shows if I miss a spot and more often than not I end up looking like an oompa loompa.  Nobody wants that!
When I got the opportunity to review Best Bronze self tanning spray, I was a bit hesitant in fear that I would be disappointed once again.  I did not need to worry!
This self tanner sprays on quite evenly for a nice golden tan.

2015-11-19 15.50.47This is my usually tanslucent leg 24 hours after application under flourescent lighting.  If you look, you can see a golden hue has replaced my usual Casper appearance.
When I first received the package, I was really impressed with how nice it appeared and how lovely it smelled!  It came in the adorable bag you see above with all the lovely goodies inside.
The pre and post tan soaps smell incredible and they do a great job on your skin.  The pre-tan is a great exfoliant to remove any dead skin and leave your body fresh and clean for the spray.
When applying the spray, it is quite simple.  Just spray evenly over the areas you want to look tan and wait about 3 minutes.  Your skin is dry enough to get dressed.  In about 3 hours, you will see your final result.  If it isn’t dark enough, you can apply again in 8 hours.
I found that nothing got stained, clothes or hands and they did include a set of gloves for application.
This was a mess free, safe and natural way to get the tanned look I was hoping for.
I highly recommend this quality tanning system to anyone looking for a reliable self tanner.

Why I love Argan Oil and a Review of ISA Professional’s Argan Oil

Share Button

2015-12-01 19.09.56ISAProfessionalEVAOArganOil3_1024x1024

Hi Friends!

I recently had the opportunity to try out and review ISA Professional’s Argan Oil.  I was thrilled because I had recently discovered Argan Oil and, having worked with ISA Professional before, I knew their products were of good quality.

Before I get into my experiences with this product, let me tell you why I love Argan Oil.

I first started using Argan Oil in my hair.  After a shower, I simply work 2-3 drops of it through my wet hair.

2-3 drops goes a long way….I have a lot of hair

The first thing 2015-12-03 13.01.04I noticed was how nice it felt in my hair, not oily at all.  As my hair dried, it was soft and manageable with very little frizz.  Every curly haired girl understands the excitement of having your hair dry without being frizzy.

As time went on, I found my hair was getting shinier and softer.  I have to admit, I was worried that putting oil in my hair would make it greasy however my worrying was all for nothing.  My hair has never looked or felt healthier.   I have been able to cut down drastically on what products I use when styling.

I next learned that you can use Argan Oil for other things.  Argan Oil is great for your dry flaky skin.  When you rub it into dry hands, your hands feel softer and look better after just a few uses.

Argan Oil is also a great moisturizer for your face.  It helps bring out that youthful glow and it will not leave your skin feeling oily.

You can also rub Argan Oil into your finger nail beds for stronger, healthier nails.

In Morroco, they actually eat Argan Oil by dipping bread into it or using it in couscous.  It is supposed to be very good for your system and lowers your cholesterol.

As you can see, Argan Oil is a very versatile product.  I have used it for my hair, nails and skin for awhile now and I am very happy with the results.

ISA Professional’s EVAO or Extra Virgin Argan Oil is a high quality product.  It is 100% Organic with no additives.  I find it has a very pleasant natural scent and it feels luxurious in my hair and on my skin.  I love that the bottle has a dropper lid for even easier application.  I highly recommend this to anyone looking for healthier hair and skin.

For more information and to purchase EVAO from ISA Professional, you can visit their Amazon product page here or check out their website.

ISA did not disappoint me with this new product.  They continue to deliver high quality, luxurious beauty products that make you feel beautiful.

Secret Clinical Antiperspirant

Stress Sweat!

Everybody gets it, nobody talks about it.

There is nothing worse than that feeling you get when you are in the middle of a big presentation and you feel yourself starting to sweat.  You try to focus on what you need to do but your mind keeps nagging “am I sweating? Oh no I am sweating! Does it show? Don’t raise your arms!  I hope it doesn’t smell.”  You find yourself wishing the floor would just swallow you up.

Recently, I was given the opportunity to review Secret Clinical Antiperspirant Clear Gel for free thanks to Secret and BzzAgent  I was a bit skeptical about how powerful this would be in stressful situations.

I decided to put it to the test on a day where I had a big meeting.  I had to give a presentation in a warm room and then drive home for 3 hours.

I got to my meeting and felt pretty good.  First of all, the antiperspirant went on dry and smelled nice and light.  As my presentation time drew near, my heart started racing but I was not sweating.

I gave my presentation without incident and survived the rest of my meeting.  In the car on the way home, I realized I still felt fresh and sweat free.  Secret Clinical actually lasted all day, over 12 hours without giving up!

Secret Clinical Antiperspirant delivers 4X the protection of a regular antiperspirant and it shows.

Next time I am faced with a stressful situation, I will rest easy knowing I am protected from the dreaded Stress Sweat!

Clumps Be Gone

Share Button

Hi Friends!

I hope you are doing well these days.

I recently had the awesome opportunity to test and review one of COVERGIRL’s new mascaras for free thanks to COVERGIRL and  BZZAgent.

I choose to review Clump Crusher (the green one) because clumps are something that drive me crazy about mascara so I really wanted to put it to the test.  My expectations of mascara are high.  I don’t want clumps and I want the mascara to transform my pale, almost invisible, short lashes into long, full, luscious lashes.

bare lashes2015-09-17 07.36.52

As you can see, I was not kidding when I said I have invisible eye lashes.  The picture on the right shows me with the Clump Crusher mascara applied.  What a difference!

I have not been this excited about a mascara in a very long time!  I have always had to compromise.  Either have no clumps but no length or fullness or have full, long lashes full of clumps.  Clump Crusher delivers everything I need it to!  I love it so much that I went out and bought it for my daughter to try.  She loves it too.

Mascara has always been hard for me to take off and Clump Crusher comes off with simple soap and water, no fussing around.  I have been so happy with it and using it daily that I have yet to try the other formulas in the line but I look forward to doing so.

Spread Love,

M

 

 

 

As you can see, going mascara free is not an option for me!

Boustise Breast-Enhancment Cream

Share Button

2015-09-03 11.04.57Hi Friends.
Recently, I was given the opportunity to review a bust enhancement cream called Boustise.

Ok so I have had two children and I am now closer to 40 than 35…needless to say, elasticity is a bit of a memory.
I have always been happy with my bust size however I have noticed over the years that my breasts do not feel as full as they did when I was 20.
I honestly did not know what to expect from this Breast Enhancement Cream.

My first impression was that I LOVED the packaging.  The bottle is very pretty and was bigger than I expected.
I used this product for over a month before reviewing.
Firstly, the smell of the cream is very pleasant.  The cream is not greasy and absorbs well into my skin.  I did not experience any irritation or rash with use and it had a pleasant tingly feel to it.

Using it is easy, just rub a small amount all over your breasts in the morning and evening.
I was quite surprised to find that after only a week, my breasts felt heavier.
I had recently lost weight and of course I lost it from my bust first so my favourite bra did not quite fit any longer.  (before picture).  After 4 weeks of use, I found that I could once again fill the cups.  I increased by at least a cup size in 4 weeks.
There were some unexpected bonuses.  My skin is not only more elastic, it looks younger.  I had a few stretch marks on the sides and now I can’t even see them.

2015-09-05 10.10.51 2015-10-11 11.51.14

I decided to put this cream further to the test.  I stopped using it completely.  After a week, I noticed a difference once again.  My breasts were less full.  I use it a few times a week to maintain the results I achieved.
I have to say that this cream really does deliver excellent results.  I would recommend this to anyone looking for fuller, larger breasts.

If you would like to purchase Boustise for yourself or learn more about the ingredients, you can visit the product page here: https://www.amazon.ca/gp/product/B008A0SH3E/ref=cm_cr_ryp_prd_ttl_sol_4

I know talking about the lovely things happening to our bodies as we age is not exactly fun however I do feel the need to share good products that really work with you….we are all in this together!

Fire in a Haystack: A Thrilling Novel (Legal Mystery Book Book 1)Fire in a Haystack: A Thrilling Novel by Erez Aharoni
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Erez Aharoni has delivered a fully enthralling mystery.
I found myself hooked from the prologue.
The story centers around Ofer Angel who has not had what one would call an easy life.
We first meet Ofer as he learns his father is dead, supposedly having taken his own life.
Fast forward 10 years later to Ofer who is now an intern at a prestigious law firm. He is tasked with keeping tabs on a witness for a very important case. One of my favourite moments was when Ofer realizes that his charge is someone whose facial hair he vowed to pluck one by one when he saw him at his father’s funeral.
Full of twists and turns, you will find this story hard to put down.
Ofer must race against the clock to find a cure to a disease he has been infected with, learn who is framing him and just plain survive!
This is one thrill ride you will be glad you went on!
