Month: November 2016

Music Monday: Rock N Roll Queen

 

This is one of those movies that I like to put on in the background when I’m curled up with a magazine and tea or trying to fall asleep. It’s clever, it makes me laugh, and it’s full of good music…what’s not to love?

What I’ve read lately (August-October 2016)

I have a terrible confession to make: I’ve barely read anything for the past several months. It’s partly because I was busy with other activities, and it’s partly because I ran into a slew of real stinkers of books that I just couldn’t bear to finish. I suppose it doesn’t help that I finished reading Dark Matter back in July and promptly fell into a semi-book-depression because nothing seemed nearly as good in comparison.

But I digress! I did manage to finish five books over the past three months and DNF’d two others. (I’m still struggling to read several other books as well that are just not progressing at all.) Here’s what I’ve read lately, along with mini-reviews. For longer reviews, hop over to my Goodreads page, and don’t forget to friend me while you’re there!

October 2016 Birchbox: so many cruelty-free goodies!

I know I’m a little late posting this, but I had to share my October 2016 Birchbox! Birchbox is definitely one of those services that has good and bad months, but this month I felt like they really delivered a great box! All of the samples were cruelty-free (yeah!) and there was only one item that got a “meh” from me. Read on for details on my box!
