• Most Recommended Fantasy Romance Books (that aren’t SJM)

    Because I am participating in the Summer of Romantasy, I have fallen deep into the YouTube archives, devouring all the fantasy romance content that I can find. I have started a spreadsheet to track how many times each book has been recommended, and these are the Top 5 recommendations. I have not read all of these myself yet, but they are my priority this summer. Number 5: Heavenly Bodies by Imani Erriu Tropes: Reluctant allies, Fated mates, Enemies to lovers, Celestial “I defy the stars.” In a world where no entities exist but the Stars, cruel and merciless gods that watch over the world, Elara has been cursed by fate.…

  • Huda Beauty Blush Filter Liquid Blush

    Huda Beauty Blush Filter Liquid Blush $21 will be available June 7th. Huda is calling this the ultimate liquid blush, and her reel completely sold me on this product. It is described as being lightweight, yet buildable.  Contains finely-milled pearls for the most stunning glow, yet dries down and doesn’t budge. I’m definitely intrigued by that! I hate when a liquid blush remains tacky to provide the glow I want. This blush can be worn solo or applied over makeup… even after powder. It will also smell amazing! Will be available in 5 shades. I have my eye on Strawberry Cream I think. Will you be picking one of these…

  • Summer of Romantasy

    My summer reading plans include all of the romantasy I can possibly get my hands on! There are two main reading challenges I will be participating in and would love for you to join me. I will be sharing a lot of fantasy romance themed content on my bookish platforms: this blog, Tiktok, Instagram and YouTube. If you have any requests, please do let me know. Firstly, Covers with Cassidy is hosting an Every Romantasy Challenge. You can watch her video for all the details plus book recommendations. What drew me to this challenge, aside from loving the genre and Cassidy’s channel, is that it feels like a fun scavenger…

  • Too Faced Chocolate Soleil Melting Bronzing Stick

    NOW AVAILABLE Too Faced Chocolate Soleil Melting Bronzing Stick $47. This easy cream bronzer and sculpting stick gives a natural finish, warmth and dimension to the skin. The formula is lightweight and blendable; it won’t disturb makeup, and is made with skin-loving ingredients such as vitamin E and squalane. We all know the Too Faced Chocolate series smells amazing. I’ve heard these bronzing sticks smell exactly like a Terry’s Chocolate Orange, which completely sold me on the product! I am surprised that Too Faced seems to have come out with this type of product so late compared to other brands considering they’re most known for their bronzer series. What are…

  • Heartless Hunter by Kristen Ciccarelli

    A steamy game of cat and mouse between witch and witch-hunter, played out against a backdrop of opulence, secrets, and bloody history.

  • Milk Makeup KUSH Hydrating Sheer Lip Oil

    NEW Milk Makeup KUSH Hydrating Sheer Lip Oil. This is a sheer, non-sticky lip oil made with hydrating oils that deliver an intense hit of hydration and shine for smoother-, fuller-looking lips. Why is it that every single lip oil release has me 👀? It’s interesting that each shade in this line up also has a different flavour. All of them sound good! I don’t know which I’d choose. I will say, these do feel a bit pricey for me. They’re $36 for 5.5mL. Milk Makeup is a high-end makeup brand sold at Sephora, but this is nearing a luxury price point in my opinion. Lip oils have become my…
