Where’d you go Bernadette By : Maria Semple

Published June 2, 2015 by Hollys~BookShelf

I came across this book in the clearance section in Books a million. I read the back as we all do and the first couple of pages just to see did it draw me in. It did. haha!

I love Bernadette she is hilarious and quick with the wit. Ok, so the main character is Bee. Bernadette daughter. Bee has done well in school and wants her mom and dad to take her on a trip to Antartica. However, Bernadette doesn’t like people, or crowded areas or being on a boat or most things haha! The closer it gets to the trip Bernadette starts acting a little strange. Then, She disappears! Heres where the mystery begins and unfolds quite well. I really enjoyed it.

I would recommend this as a good summer read : ) if you like a hint of sarcasm and a little mystery this would be the book for you. : )

Ok! Hi guys!

Not too long ago I received my Mom voxbox from influenster to try. My first box and it has been awesome!

One of the highlights for my son was the Quaker oatmeal Raisin cookie that came in it  : ) haha!

He got to the box first so of course I didnt get to try it but, He says its ” GREAT!” : )

I think He liked it because it was fresh and so, now this has been added to our grocery list : )

Ivory bar soap

Published July 10, 2012 by Hollys~BookShelf

Thanks to influenster for sending me Ivory bar soap in my Mom Voxbox.

I have to say I was pleased to see that I liked it. Im not a big fan of bar soap. 

So, I used to deep clean my makeup brushes first. Well, It did such a great job of leaving them smelling very clean and the brush heads soft. I decided to give it a try on myself. I have very naturally oily skin so, this worked amazing. It doesnt dry out my skin it just leaves it clean without leaving and iky residue. Needless to say I have since purchased quite a few more bars. Image
