Book Worm..."The Hunger Games"

Hunger Games Trilogy by Suzanna Collins:


Let me start by saying WOW…I love this trilogy!!! Suzanna Collins did an amazing job, I felt like I was there in the arena trying to survive along with the others. If you’ve never read the books you must, you must, YOU MUST! The movie premieres March 23rd , hopefully it is as good as the books. Below is the movie trailer, it looks promising. 


The Hunger Games” is part Sci-Fi as far as the inventions/arena, laboratory made creatures, and futuristic time they live in. A bit of a romance triangle between Katniss (main character), her long time best friend Gale, and Peeta, the boy with the bread (you will know what I mean when you read it). More so it’s all about a survival instinct, not only in the “arena” where the games are held, also as the Mockingjay (leader of the rebels).  

“Hunger Games, Book 1”: The hunger games are held annually to remind the 12 districts of the control the Capitol has over the country of Panem. Each district sends 2 tributes, between the ages of 12 and 18, to an arena with the need to survive and fight to the death until only one remains. Katniss has volunteered to go in place of her 12 year old sister and as result faces many torturous obstacles in the arena. The monstrous act of killing another human being is not the only thing Katniss will face in the arena.
There are 24 tributes total…will they become allies or enemies, how will they survive, what other horrors could the Capital throw at them, who will remain standing at the final gong?

I don’t want to say anything about “Catching Fire” (book 2) or “Mockingjay” (book 3) because I’m honestly scared to ruin it. If I say too much you’ll know the ending to book one and so on. For those of you who have this trilogy under your belt, please comment and leave your thoughts/opinions.
Interested? Kindle Price- Between $5 and $8 for each download…I love my Kindle!

E.L.F. Cosmetic Brushes...Fave or Fail?

Admittedly I've been using the same Mary Kay makeup brushes for a while now, along with a few other random brands thrown in. I was just satisfied with my MK brushes because they washed well and have help up for a really long time. But it was definitely time for a whole new set and I had trouble making up my mind on which makeup brushes to try. At first my plan was to snag a few from different companies to see what I liked best, but then E.L.F. Cosmetics had a 50% off sale with free shipping over $35. Naturally I had to give it a shot since I was getting so much bang for my buck. I already knew that I wasn't too fond of their cheaper $1 brushes so I opted for the Studio Line which ranges from $3-$10 and I'd heard great reviews. All together I got 15 brushes (1 didn't make it to the picture) for only $37, definitely a steal! Keep reading to find out if it was worth it. 
















 I am extremely pleased with these E.L.F makeup brushes. The only one that I'm not too fond of woul…

IPSY: December Glam Bag Review

I will be reviewing the products I received in my December Ipsy bag since I've had the chance to test them out for about a month now. If you don't know already here's the spill. Instead of doing an "unboxing" type of post, I review the products over the course of a month and then let you know what I thought and all the product details. If you didn't see my November bag review you can check it out HERE.

   This post is a bit late, but we'll be getting back on track for February.
   Here's what I received in my December Ipsy Bag...



1). December's Glam Bag- Not going to lie, this month's bag was a disappointment for sure; it felt cheap, was flimsy, and the zipper was in a weird spot. I will probably end up giving it to my daughter to keep her play makeup in.

2). NYX Butter Lip Balm in Red Velvet- Retails for $4.00 (this is the full size)
   I'm not a big tinted lip balm fan, I'd rather just wear a lipstick. This is the first NYX balm I…

Gracelynn Rose Designs & GIVEAWAY

Today I'm very excited to introduce everyone to Gracelynn Rose Designs! The owner, Stephanie, is one of my closest and dearest friends that I consider more of a sister. The first time we met it was instant friendship, now we've known each other for 5 years. Even though we're currently thousands of miles apart it's as if we never left.


Stephanie has been designing her own jewelry since 2001 and selling it to customers along with a few stores. Each design is her own, delicately handcrafted, and unique. She did an entire jewelry line based on Twilight (which of course I loved every piece) that was so beautiful AND she sold a line of pearl & crystal bracelets to David's Bridal and those were stunning.

For my birthday Stephanie sent me a pair of earrings in the mail and I fell in love with them and wear them every chance I get. Might I add that they are 1 of a kind, not another pair like them...



It's obvious that my girl is super talented and I'm so proud of h…
