A Must Read: BADGER by C.M. McKenna

Adrian Birch is nobody. 

She once sold her sister’s engagement ring to get numb on Vicodin. Now in recovery, out of work, and burrowed in a dingy Boston apartment, it’s clear sobriety doesn’t make her somebody.

The first time she feels something isn’t when her wrist is broken from a hit-and-run but when the accident is avenged by a local antihero, the Badger. Then Adrian isn’t numb. She’s obsessed.

She scores her next hit of the Badger by faking a suicide attempt on a bridge over the Charles River. After her rescue, she takes what she needs however she can get it — following the hooded vigilante through the streets of Boston, forcing encounters until she knows better than anyone alive that the Badger is trouble. 

He has no remorse. No moral code. He’s nothing but a ball of human impulse racing through the streets on a ten-speed with a paint gun weaponized against petty injustice. But he’s her buzz that kills the numb. Just the latest addiction Adrian can’t seem to quit.

When Boston police put a price on the Badger’s head, her actions spawn a movement she can’t control, and Adrian can’t guess if she’s saving the Badger, the city, or herself.

Deep Cleaning Your Brushes With Sigma

A few months back, my lovely sister-in-law, Mary, gave me the Sigma Spa Brush Cleaning Mat for my birthday. At the time, I had seen their brush cleaning glove and knew about the basic concept but didn't really think it would make that much of a difference in the cleaning process. Although I had meant to try it a few times since receiving it, I kept putting it off because I was either in a rush or it completely slipped my mind. After going wayyyy too long without washing my brushes thoroughly (and seriously breaking out as a result) I decided to give my brushes a bit of a spa day last weekend and cracked out the Sigma Cleaning Mat for its debut. Here's how it went.

Blog Tour Review | DIRTY TALK by Megan Erickson

Brent Payton has a reputation for wanting to have fun, all the time. It’s well-earned after years of ribbing his brothers and flirting with every girl he meets, but he’s more than just a good time, even though nobody takes the time to see it. When a new girl walks into his family’s garage with big thoughtful eyes and legs for days, this mechanic wants something serious for the first time.

Ivy Dawn is done with men, all of them. She and her sister uprooted their lives for them too many times and she’s not willing to do it again. Avoiding the opposite sex at all costs seems easy enough, until the sexy mechanic with the dirty mouth bursts into her life.

Brent can’t resist the one woman who sees past his devil-may-care facade and Ivy finds it harder and harder to deny how happy he makes her. But Ivy has secrets she hasn’t shared and when the truth comes out, she must decide if she’s willing to take one more chance on love or let him go forever.

Monthly Beauty Favorites | August 2015

After taking a couple of weeks off from blogging to take care of some family business, Cris Conquers is back with a typically belated 'Monthly Beauty Favorites' post! I haven't been playing around too much with my makeup but I've found a couple of new products and some old favorites that were really working for me last month. Here's the breakdown.
