I want to try to end every month with something positive! Some happy things to start the next month with a smile on my face!
Top 5 posts in July:
This post went up in May 2012 and it is still one of my most visited one almost every month!
A most untraditional love story, this is the celebrated tale of Henry DeTamble, a dashing, adventuresome librarian who involuntary travels through time, and Clare Abshire, an artist whose life takes a natural sequential course. Henry and Clare's passionate affair endures across sea of time and captures them in an impossibly romantic trap that tests the strength of fate and basks in the bonds of love.I should have known with that kind of synopsis that this wasn't a book for me! Henry is dashing, adventuresome and Clare is an artist who has a natural sequenced life. Why can't Clare be the adventuresome character? Why does she have to be the stay at home and worry character? Why does Clare have to be the weak character, why can't she be the hero? Why is Clare only life goal to be with Henry? These are the questions that constantly jumped at me during the whole book.
CLARE: It's a humid sticky hot Sunday afternoon, and Henry, Gomez, and I are at large in Evanston. We spent the morning at Lighthouse Beach, playing in Lake Michigan and roasting ourselves. Gomez wanted to be buried in the sand, so Henry and I obliged. We ate our picnic, and napped. Now we are walking down the shady side of Church Street, licking Orangsicles, groggy with sun. (Page 295)
HENRY: Today was Moving Day. All day it was hot; the movers' shirts stuck to them as they walked up the stairs of our apartment this morning, smiling because they figured a two-bedroom apartment would be no big deal and they'd be done before lunch time. (Page 294)Only two quotes this time, since there wasn't anything that I found amazing about the book. No words stood out to me, I wasn't inspired about anything in the book.
Take your shine to the matte. In your corner: the ultimate, acne fighting, mattifying lotion with max strength 2% salicylic acid. This powerfully natural, botanically effective, oil-free formula keeps shine at bay while it weightlessly hydrates skin. Formulated with Salicylic Acid (naturally derived from Willow Bark Extract), zits are down for the count and you'll see a visibly clearer complexion. Never tight, never oily, skin is smooth, fresh and prepped for your day (or night). Dermatologist Tested. Non-comedogenic.I don't have super shiny skin, but it is too shiny for my liking so I really wanted to try a mattifying lotion. I still want to try a mattifying lotion because the ACNEdote oil control lotion isn't mattifying at all.
