Review: the Morgans and the Jewel of Bar-Ran by K.T. Dady

Disclaimer: book provided by author in exchange for an honest review. Sometimes you just crave a middle grade. Something whimsical, something ridiculous, full of adventure, magic and just drift off in another world that doesn’t need you to keep track of some silly politics. Luckily, the author contacted me if I wanted to read her […]

Review: Holika Holika All Kill Oil to Foam Moisture Cleansing Oil

My skin is horrible. I’m not even going to be fake positive about it. I’ve got extremely dry skin (to the point it will bleed in winter), it’s sensitive-ish, I’ve got acne AND acne rosacea. It’s one big party, honestly. I was looking for a new face wash and decided to get this one by […]
