Boots Botanics Ionic Clay Mask #powerofplants

So I tried out this new and amazing face mask that works wonders. Monday night when we were under a peculiar sleet storm in Texas I buckled down and thought why not try some face masks and try to get all this acne to go down! I grabbed my bottle and I quickly applied the green goop. A mistake that I made is I didn't shake the bottle well! You should totally do this because a lot of the liquid came out when I opened the bottle up. Now what I did next is I applied the mask over my whole face generously and a little down my neck. On the bottle it says to wait 10 minutes, but mine wasn't dry. I waited about 15 minutes total and then got up and wiped my face clean. I will say that it did hurt a little bit, but it made my face super tight and totally cleared up all the red, gross bumps on my face! I recommend this to everybody.

A French Girl In New York




This book. What Can I say? I loved this book with all my heart. It had me in tears then had me laughing. Praises to Anna Adams for writing a successful and amazing book. She does such a play on words and hints at abuse to Maude Laurent but doesn't go into to many gruesome details. A women after my own heart. Anywho I loved that even though Maude has been through so much in her short sixteen years that she doesn't let it stop her. She keeps on going and goes after her dreams of being a singer. She doesn't even let Mrs. Ruchet get in her way. The ruche family is horrible and that's why I love when she finds the Baldwin family. They treat her with so much respect and she finally feels loved and like she has a family of her own. ;) I'm not going to spoil the book but the dang ending puts the icing and details on the cake.




I know this is extremely short and all that but it's great to be back. I will try to have two posts up every month. It's not like it used to be, I'm in Highschool now and there's so much homework but I'm trying. (That right there ladies and gentleman is the longest run on and horrible sentence I've ever wrote)

Crimson Frost

CRIMSON FROST

Seventeen-year-old Gypsy girl Gwen Frost has charmed readers with her snarky, self-deprecating voice and unusual powers since TOUCH OF FROST, the book that first opened the doors to Mythos Academy.  With each installment, Jennifer Estep’s RITA nominated series has quickly gained popularity as word continues to spread about this school of myths, magic and warrior whiz kids, where the students are taught and trained to become protectors of humankind when they “grow up.”  In January 2013, Gwen returns with her gift of psychometry in CRIMSON FROST

Gwen should have known that her first official date with Logan Quinn was destined to end in disaster. She was prepared to get into a swordfight, or be ambushed by Reapers. But getting arrested mid-sip at the local coffee hangout? She didn’t see that one coming.  Gwen is accused of purposely helping the Reapers free the evil god Loki from his prison—and the person leading the charge against her is Linus Quinn, Logan’s dad. The worst part is that pretty much everyone at Mythos Academy thinks she’s guilty. If she’s going to get out of this mess alive, she’ll have to do it herself…



                   ~~~~~~~~~~~~~My Review~~~~~~~~~~
Crimson Frost. This book was fantabulous. Okay when I say that it brought my inner mythology nerd out. This book was like Harry Potter and Percy Jackson in one book. Gypsy Girl is such an amazing girl. She thinks aha almost every girl thinks. She doubts herself and just is normal even though she is Nike's champion.. 
I really wished that I would have known this was the second book in the series.. Sadly, I read this one first. I may have read this one first but i'm hunting for the first one.
Logan Quinn sounds like the perfect boyfriend. He loves his gypsy girl so much... He stood up to his dad and he ever does that. Linus Quinn didnt back down but Logan sure tried to persuade.. The problem was Logan's step mom.. Yes the Step mom is an evil viper. 
I give this book a 5/5. 

Hooked


Get Hooked on a Girl Named Fred...
HE said: Fred Oday is a girl? Puh-leeze. Why is a girl taking my best friend’s spot on the boys’ varsity golf team?

SHE said: Can I seriously do this? Can I join the boys’ team? Everyone will hate me—especially Ryan Berenger.

HE said: Coach expects me to partner with Fred on the green? That is crazy bad. Fred’s got to go—especially now that I can’t get her out of my head. So not happening.

SHE said: Ryan can be nice, when he’s not being a jerk. Like the time he carried my golf bag. But the girl from the rez and the spoiled rich boy from the suburbs? So not happening.

But there’s no denying that things are happening as the girl with the killer swing takes on the boy with the killer smile...

My Review: Can I say one word? Amazing. Fred Oday hated Ryan in the beginning.. But even from the beginning you could tell that she fell for him. The best thing in her life was making the golf team. She was set on the golf and she strived for it. She didn't care if she was put on an all boys team.. And she showed them all up. Seth may have hated her, but Fred ended up winning. Seth got ditched by Ryan because he was so jealous of Fred. I'm glad that she got this amazing chance and got to have an amazing High school experience.. I could go on forever, but i want this post to be short and sweet.

My Book Haul


he year is 1990, and in his hometown of Dublin, Ireland, Neil Byrne plays rugby, keeps up with the in-crowd at his school, and is just a regular guy. A guy who's gay. It's a secret he keeps from the wider world as he explores the city at night and struggles to figure out how to reveal his real self--and to whom.
First published in Ireland in 1993 and compared to The Catcher in the Ryeby critics, Tom Lennon's When Loves Comes to Town is told with honesty, humor, and originality.

Life’s sweet when you’re seventeen and in love, right? Clemmie Atkins certainly thinks so! She’s still madly in love with her girlfriend, the hot and super-confident EMO, Hannah Harrison, and her irritating sister, HRBH, will soon be leaving home to go to university.
But just when it seems that life is finally pretty darn cool, a new distraction at school threatens to upset everything, and the return of the enigmatic and sexy J with a startling confession confuses things further...
Clemmie has another 365 days to try to get her life back on track...but will it be enough?


A Shimmer of Angels

Sixteen-year-old Rayna sees angels, and has the medication and weekly therapy sessions to prove it. Now, in remission, Rayna starts fresh at a new school, lands a new job, and desperately tries for normalcy. She ignores signs that she may be slipping into the world she has tried so hard to climb out of. But these days, it’s more than just hallucinations that keep Rayna up at night. Students are dying, and she may be the only one who can stop it. Can she keep her job, her sanity, and her friends from dying at the hands of angels she can't admit to seeing?











A Shimmer of Angels is one of those books that I just couldn't set it down. I was glued to it, but I sadly am going to give it a 4 out of 5. I feel like it could have been a little better. Don't get me wrong, this book was so amazing in so many ways! I'm just saying that like I think the book could have so much more detail. 
  Rayna is so amazing and I wish I was her. She is one of those fictional characters i want to be. She has to gorgeous angels flocking after her and she goes on this amazing adventure with them. Like can this get anymore Paranormal? 
  Lastly, I wish I knew Cam in real life. He is one of those boys that cares about everything. He watched Rayna's little sister while she was in the crazy bin and made sure she was safe. Then he helped her not die. This book is just AHMAZING!! K Loves bye.
