The Mysterious Benedict Society by Trenton Lee Stewart is THE best book I have ever read in my life. Although that’s pretty much a sum of the way I feel about this book, I guess I’ll just have to explain further: A group of four children is gathered to go on a top secret, life threatening mission. Each of these witty characters contribute to the story, making the plot very dynamic. Information is constantly twisting and turning around the plot, and the nonstop adventure makes this a book you just can’t put down. I have just started the sequel, and so far it is proving to be just as great! 10 Stars and 5 thumbs up for this series!

P.S. This book can easily be enjoyed by children and adults alike.


So, if you didn’t figure out the title you should really go back to the 2nd grade. No, just kidding! If you haven’t guessed, this post is going to be about boredom. It’s a good old friend that comes for a visit without calling first… the kind of friend that when you try to block out of your life, ALWAYS butts it’s way back in. Now, I’m not saying a little bit now and then isn’t healthy, but COME ON, when you really don’t do anything besides school, eating, and sleeping, it comes around ALL THE TIME. Now, I already know what I want to do with my life, seriously, but that doesn’t do much use for me when I’m in the 8th grade. So, after I get fed up with the usual – tv and computer – what to do? That’s the problem!  w-o-w…..    well, that’s the end of my mini-rant 🙂

Flowy tanks, zipper details, and lace are all very in this season. That’s why this top from Urban Outfitters is today’s perfect pick.

Gold jewlery has been very popular lately. These golden, tear-drop shaped earrings are very flattering to the face, and look very good on people who are brunettes. The orange and blue give a very calm feeling, and since they are opposite on the color wheel, they are a perfect match. This pair of gorgeous earrings are available at Anthropologie.

These Steve Madden flat sandals are absolutely perfect for this upcoming summer. The wide ankle straps flatter the ankles very well, and the unique color scheme gives any outfit an edgy twist.

:] Have fun being fashionable.

Step by Step: Everyday look for beginners in makeup.

1) Wash Face

2) Moisturize

3) Foundation: A medium coverage, liquid foundation works well applied with fingers. Remember to take it down the neck, so you don’t look like you’re wearing a mask. Follow with a powder.

4) Blush: Coral blushes are great, to give your cheeks a natural glow. Lightly sweep from the apple’s of your cheeks upwards. Be careful not to overdo it.

5) Bronzer: Bronzer is great to make the illusion of higher cheek bones. Gently sweep in the hollows of your cheeks. Drag LIGHTLY towards the corner of your mouth (do not create a line). An easier way to do it is to make a three on either side of the face.

6) Highlight: Apply a very small amount of highlight color under the bridge of the eyebrow, on the very tops of the cheek bones, and the littlest amount in the tear ducts.

7) Eyeliner: Apply pencil as close to the lash line as possible, then smudge with finger.

8) Eyeshadow: For a smokey look (for work or evening): Apply gold eyeshadow on the entire lid (not too much). Then apply a deep purple color on the outer corner, and the outer half under the eye (again, small amount). Then apply a shimmery copper color at the center of the lid.

9) Mascara: This is optional but if used can often make the eyes more defined and pronounced.

10) Lip Gloss: This product works well to bring some shine and color to the face. It also doesn’t have some of the problems that lipstick has of caking or spreading. Subtle colors are excellent for the daytime.

This classy longchamps tote, is perfect for both younger and older women.  The sophisticated leather easily ties into almost any outfit. Another plus, is its capacity. This stylish bag can hold everything one would need in a day.

Option #2: This oh so chic, bag from, is yet another wonderful gift possibility. It is perfect because of its shape, detailing, and color. Both rose detailing, and blush colors are very in this year. The structure of this tote makes it perfect for work, and/or formal events. (warning: do not wear this bag along with pink clothes)

The Amazon Kindle, is the most perfect gift for a book lover. It’s gorgeous screen does not tire the eyes, and it’s sleek design makes it very user-friendly. A book can be downloaded in 60 seconds, from anywhere.
