Finally something to replace my (limited edition) MAC Cream Soda blush.

Creamy, lovely and such a softly gorgeous matte peach.



Commodity Goods Book Eau De Parfum Review


My favorite of the Commodity scents.  It starts with a burst of cucumber then I feel fresh woods, with a little kick of citrus, lavender and vanilla.  Modern, clean and unisex.

Book Review Phenomenal Leigh Ann Henion



Some books are hard to describe.

With the birth of her son, writer Henion begins to feel conflicted and confined.  Not an uncommon reaction for independent women in today's world.  How Henion copes is unusual. She begins to search for the world's most extraordinary wonders and travels to visit them, writing all the while.

What follows is really a spiritual journey with science added in and religion removed.  I really enjoyed Henion's steps along the way.  And each of her trips is described vividly.

My viewpoints are somewhat different but the book still struck me personally.

A very interesting read.

Book Review The Poser by Jacob Rubin



This book is quite a narrative!

Giovanni can mimic anyone and his mother encourages him.  Soon he's a famous performer but working with some less admirable characters and losing touch with himself.  Then he meets a woman he can't mimic.

Yet we all give ourselves away with certain gestures so why won't she?

Giovanni must come iback n touch with many emotional and psychological elements.  So how will the book end?  Can he do it?

While I admit it lags in the middle I really enjoyed this book!
