Dr. Sarah Gordon lost her husband and daughter. Now she's about to lose her life.
After losing the two people she loved the most, Sarah Gordon doesn't think life could get worse. But, after a fire in her garage is ruled an arson, she begins to realize someone is after her---and that person wants to see her dead. But first, they want to see her suffer.
Her late husband's best friend, Kyle Andrews, and a recovering alcoholic detective, Bill Larson, are trying to solve the mystery before it's too late, and they're both trying to win her heart, too. Not only does Sarah feel torn between two men, she also feels as though she cannot trust anyone.
With creepy threats that become more and more sinister, Sarah finds herself in constant fear, but even the best home alarm technology won't protect her. Who is doing this, and why are they after her?

For plucky Lillian Avery, America's entry into World War II means a chance to prove herself as a pharmacist in Boston. The challenges of her new job energize her. But society boy Ensign Archer Vandenberg's attentions only annoy--even if he "is" her brother's best friend.
During the darkest days of the war, Arch's destroyer hunts German U-boats in vain as the submarines sink dozens of merchant ships along the East Coast. Still shaken by battles at sea, Arch notices his men also struggle with their nerves--and with drowsiness. Could there be a link to the large prescriptions for sedatives Lillian has filled? The two work together to answer that question, but can Arch ever earn Lillian's trust and affection?
|Somewhat predictable in the romance department but it was hard to pin down who was involved in the drug ring. Twists and turns kept it exciting. At one point I suspected the culpret then I convinced myself he wasn't involved, and went back and forth with several characters during the book. I also liked how lillian realized her strength in the end. Her handicap didn't hold her back. I cant say more or id give it away. I'd give it a 3 star rating out of 5.|

When the weather gets warmer I have less desire to spend hours slaving over a hot stove. I want meals that are fast, easy, and cool. On those hot summer nights, a great way to cool down is with a refreshing salad or veggie dish filled with the best seasonal ingredients. To top off your dish, reach for another cool and delicious choice – refrigerated Litehouse dressing. Cold is where it’s sold.
I recently had a chance to check out this brand of salad dressing: Litehouse. They're very tasty! We buy produce about once a week, and often have fresh salsa or salads, so it's nice to be able to shake things up a bit with some new dressings. I've even made some chicken salad using the poppy seed dressing....mmmm! Litehouse have a wide variety of options: blue cheese, ranch, poppyseed and more!
Chicken Salad Recipe:
* 2 lbs of chicken
* 1-2 cups of mayonaise (or substitute)
* 1-2 cups of Litehouse Poppyseed dressing
* dash of sugar
Boil the chicken in a pot of water until cooked. Drain in strainer and run cold water over chicken to cool it. Once chicken has cooled, shred by hand. In large bowl, mix all ingredients in a bowl and cover with cling wrap. Chill for 2-3 hours in fridge. Then eat and enjoy!!! [I like to dip pita chips into this. Yum!!!]

I've been hearing about and seeing these face masks EVERYWHERE. They're blowing up on social media. All the big beauty gurus on youtube have been talking about/posting about them. There are the black head masks, the purifying masks and the collagen masks. Some are just for the under eye area, just for the nose, or the full face. There are so many varieties.
This is one beauty band wagon I was hesitant to jump on as mud masks have irritated my skin in the past, but these are not mud masks. After trying an under eye collagen mask that I got in one of my beauty boxes, I was itching to try more! Thankfully I had a chance to purchase these 24K premium gold collagen face masks at a discounted rate to try out!
I had a chance to try these, and you can find my review below:

I recently learned about a brand called Ava & Frank. They make a face paint palette that looks like an artist palette. Such clever packaging and design. I'd probably buy this one over others just because of the artsy feel. :)
Anyway, here's a bit about them:
"Our Face and Body Paints are the best in the industry. Sourced, made and packaged with love in the USA. With so many dangerous chemicals in the current providers of kids face paints, we wanted to make a difference and use non-paraben, hypoallergenic, FDA compliant, Vegan paints that are creamy, long lasting and SO MUCH SAFE FUN!"
I recently had a chance to try out this product. They arrive as cakey dry paints, but once you add a few drops of water it's easy to work with and paint with. However if you add too much water the color does not stay on your face, so you have to hit a happy medium. I decided to try my hand at a Cinco De Mayo look, the candy skull. Am I Spanish? No, but it looked like such a fun look to try out. What do you think?
You can find the product here: http://avaandfrank.com
Many thanks for Tomoson for connecting me with this brand, and Ava & Frank for the chance to try this product. All opinions expressed are 100% my own!

Contouring is darkening the parts of your face you want to push into the background, and highlighting the parts you want to bring to the foreground. This helps your face look sculpted.
Baking is letting powder sit on your face, especially the areas you've recently used concealer on, and let it bake into the moisture, leaving a smooth surface when it's done. After about 5 minutes dust off remaining product and voila!
I hope you enjoy!

I recently had a chance to try their hyaluronic acid serum 100% pure. It says to mix two or three drops with your daily moisturizer and then applying in the morning and night, which I've been doing for the past 3 weeks. I have also been using it on my hands and lower arms since they show signs of aging and scarring too, and I've seen the most improvement on my arm. I had a mole removed about 5 months ago and the scar was red and mean-looking, and after using this on my arm for the past few weeks, it's fulled to a muted dusty pink color and is barely noticable. Hooray! Being part Irish, I frequently have things removed leaving ugly scars, so I'm grateful to find something that helps diminish these. I can't wait to try other products by Timeless Skincare!
I even featured this product in my morning moisture routine youtube video, which you can see here:
