Autumn Reads and Winter TBR

Hey loves,

Today I am sharing with you all my book obsession: Click the picture above for my video. I should note that how many books i read during a quarter really depends on my mood. I have red up to 15 books in 3 months and as little as one book but i decided this deserves to be blogged about.

Autumn Reads

(Current) The Hate You Give – Angie Thomas

This book is extremely triggering to me because it is so relatable. Simple put Starr witnessed her unarmed friend get shot by the police and the story unfolds from there.

Red Queen – Victoria Aveyard

This is another dystopian type story about a group of people (Silvers) being superior to their counterparts (Reds). They discover that a Red has powers like a silver.

The Daughter of Sherlock Holmes – Leonard Goldberg

This story follows Watson and his song being called to a case where coincidentally Sherlock Holmes’ daughter’s son is a witness. The story unfolds from there.

The Identicals – Elin Hilderbrand

Another twin swap story.

Winter TBR

Cruel Crown – Victoria Aveyard

Furthermore – Taheri Mafi

Turtles All The Way Down – John Green

The Artisan Soul – Erwin McManus

The Light of Paris – Eleanor Brown

In The Midst of Winter – Isabel Allende

Hair Dryer

Gift Ideas for Makeup Junkies

Hey Loves,

As I have been thinking about this list it has been a little complicated. On one hand I could have just compiled a list of all the things I see other youtubers talk about but then I decided that these lists are compiled of things that I may actually want to have so therefore the lists can be short. Personally for me, though I love makeup, I still have certain brands and things that I just love and will always love as gifts. I usually do not get gifts of things I have never tried because trying to return things that someone else bought is always a hassle. For me here are some great quick ideas that would make any makeup junkie love you:

  1. Beauty Blenders (Black One)
  2. House of Lashes (Sephora Holiday Set)
  3. Colourpop Ultra Satins
  4. Anastasia Beverly Hills Prism Palette (Sephora)
  5. Fenty Beauty Foundation (Sephora) (Stunna Lip Pain Comes out 11/23 – HERE)
  6. ColouredRaine Lipsticks
  7. Juvia’s Place

What are some makeup things that you would like to get?
