Stardust (Spenser, #17)Stardust by Robert B. Parker

My rating: 3 of 5 stars

Started reading the first few pages and I thought this does not seem like something I am going to like.
In fact I started reading the book a few years ago and set it down after a few pages and went on to read something else.
Gave it a few chapters and somehow became hooked. Quick light enjoyable read.

The Roadmap to a RichLife: Success with Life, Relationships, and MoneyThe Roadmap to a RichLife: Success with Life, Relationships, and Money by Beau Henderson

My rating: 3 of 5 stars

A quick read. Most books about money and life cover the same sort of information this one was a little different. I thought the book was a good read to motivate and keep you on track to the important things in life. I like the chapter about the realities of hard and easy explaining how discipline pays in the long run. The chapter of Life school is a good section to remember when things do not go your way.
The worksheet sections are a good concept. This book is one to keep and read over and over when discouraged.
I won a copy of the book on goodreads

Scandal at High ChimneysScandal at High Chimneys by John Dickson Carr

My rating: 2 of 5 stars

The mystery part of the story line really is no mystery. But I did enjoy how the author tied everything together in the last chapter. I also found the notes for the curious section of the book very interesting

Cover Her Face (Adam Dalgliesh, #1)Cover Her Face by P.D. James

My rating: 3 of 5 stars

Very classic English style mystery writing style is much like Agatha Christie's. Reminds me of the old black and white mysteries I use to watch on a rainy Saturday afternoon in my youth.

The BEST Eye Serum For Dark Circles & Puffiness - Reduces Wrinkles, Fine Lines, Lifts & Brightens Tired Looking Eyes - With Powerful Vitamin C, Plant product review

Nice product really does brighten up the eye area, the first time I used it was after a day in the sun and it brighten up the eye area a little to much, after my tan faded it was not so drastic. I tried to take a picture of my eye area to show the brightening affect but was unable to do so. I did apply some of the product to my arm area and I think you can see in the top area some of the brightening affect in the picture.

The directions and ingredients are on the pump container and are really hard to see. I had to use a magnifying glass and still had a hard time seeing the instructions. I think a  simple sheet of paper with easy to read instructions would be very helpful. The instructions say to use the product twice a day but I find that once a day is enough for me.

I have used the serum once a day for about a week now and like how it tightens and firms the skin around my eye area and the serum seems to last the whole day. I have very sensitive skin and find the product to be gentle and does help to tighten the eye area skin.

I received a discount on the product in exchange for my honest review

Weezie cowboy ankle boots

Nice looking boot at a good price. I like the nice wide heel style and just enough height for me  and I can still walk comfortably. I bought the khaki color and really like the shade.
I was a little worried about buying man made vegan suede, I have a problem with my feet getting hot in man made fabric surprisingly this has not happened in these boots. I see a lot of people posting about the size fit. I wear a size 8 wide. The boot fits like a regular size 8, so if you have a wide foot the boot will probably to tight for comfort. I would really like to see the company offer a wide option.

The Butterfly RevolutionThe Butterfly Revolution by William Butler

My rating: 3 of 5 stars

The first few chapters really hooked me in. Then the book started to lose its pull. I liked the book but only wish it would have kept my interest like the beginning did.
The book reminds me of animal farm.
I read animal farm in school and then again when I was older. I understood the book much better with age. I think if I would have read The Butterfly revolution in school I would have been able to relate to it better than animal farm and understood the political meaning behind the story line.
