Conquering, Hustling and Making Sh*t Happen


I know it's a bit cliché to make a list of resolutions to start off the New Year but hell, if I can't be cliché on New Year's Eve then when can I? When I started my blog back in August my goalbesides sharing my interest in books and beauty—was to take more chances and put myself out there a bit more. Though to a certain extent that has happened with overcoming my romance reader stigma and just sharing more with readers, I still feel like I'm not pushing myself enough to grow as a person, to take more risks to make myself happier. So let's start off my list of goals for the New Year with a goody...

Brown Sugar & Fig



When I saw the Triple Moisture Body Cream in Brown Sugar & Fig on Bath & Body Work's website a few weeks ago, the scent sounded like something I would absolutely love. I've been on a fig & plum kick lately and thought the addition of brown sugar would make this a seasonally-appropriate scented body cream.

Review & Giveaway | Sinful Rewards 6 by Cynthia Sax


Bee Carter has spent a lifetime creating her good-girl persona. Three harsh words uttered in anger shred this carefully crafted façade, testing her relationships.

Nicolas, her handsome billionaire, is hiding a decades-old secret. Bee's scandal will draw unwanted attention to his dark past, placing the real estate empire he's built and the employees he manages in peril. Hawke, her tattooed bad-boy biker, protects the rich and famous. His high-profile clients won't want their bodyguard to be linked to Chicago's wild woman.

Both men desire her, craving her touch with a white-hot passion, but who will risk everything to stand by her side—her biker or her billionaire?

Monthly Beauty Favorites | November 2014

It's hard to believe that November has already come and gone and that the holiday season is firmly upon us. Now, if you'll remember I began November by deciding to institute a No Spend November beauty spending ban. One would think that would greatly reduce the number of new favorites I came across over the month, but one would be wrong.
