Make September Sensational with Beauty Box 5

20150914_174100Summer is gone & colder temps are on their way, but smile, a new month means a new box from Beauty Box 5. Hard to believe, but this month is already flying by! Thankfully, the postal service has delivered a reason to smile.
Without further ado, let’s jump in.
If you’ve yet to become acquainted with Beauty Box 5, they are my favorite subscription service. For $12 a month, 5 new & new-to-you products are delivered via USPS directly to you. Between the cost of the product & gasoline to drive to the store to shop, you’ll save money & time. You get to try products you may not have heard of, rediscover forgotten favorites, or to try ones you’ve heard of but hadn’t purchased. Whether you love, like, or dislike items in the box, it’s a blast to experience different colors & fragrances. With a $12 price tag, it’s a steal!
20150914_174346September’s Box is fantastic. To start off, we have Elizabeth Mott’s Tints & Sass Lip + Cheek Stain. Lightweight, this stain comes in a tiny tube to deliver a pop of color. I’d have liked to have seen it last a bit longer; however, the initial boldness of it lasts until you eat or drink. It might be the type of cosmetic to keep in your desk drawer for right before a meeting in order to wake up your look. It has a pricey MSRP of $22.99, but if used intermittently, it would last long enough to justify its price.20150914_174359
If a bright eye look is in order, we have Bellepierre’s Shimmer Powder in Snowflake. Glittery is the best adjective to describe it. I was surprised at how long the shimmer actually lasted. It’s definitely bright & I would probably only use it at night or during the holidays. The color itself is very pretty, but I couldn’t justify using it for a daytime look. I do like the size of the container, as it’s small & easily stored. Again, being that it isn’t an everyday wear type of eye color, it’s $19.99 MSRP isn’t all that bad.20150914_174539
20150914_174219In keeping with great eye cosmetics, we have ‘Be a Bombshell’ Cosmetics’ Eye Crayon. The shade in my box was ‘Stonehenge’. I’d describe it as a deep gray. ‘Be a Bombshell’ is a new-to-me company. I have to admit I really liked this one. While I usually stick to really dark shades for my eyes, I like both the look & feel of this crayon. I have to say that it lasted longer than my usually eye shadow crayon, too. I wouldn’t have attempted the shade on my own if it hadn’t been in the box. I’m glad I got to experiment a bit. With its MSRP of $14, it’s only a few dollars more than the brand I’m used to & will be visiting their site soon.20150914_174151
Another new-to-me company was Beautiful Nutrition. Their ‘Lemon Rinse Gentle Clarifying Treatment’ is included in this month’s goodies. The scent is magnificent. It reminded me of my mom using lemon juice on her own hair when we were kids in order to add shine. Well, this rinse is better than plain lemon juice, for sure! Use a capful from your roots to ends after washing. It added a lot of shine to my hair. It has an MSRP of $10 & works wonderfully to cleanse your hair.20150914_174127
20150914_174602 Harvey Prince has produced quite a few fragrances that I’ve been a fan of throughout the years. ‘Sincerely’ is no different. My husband is also a fan of the scent. If you change your scent with the season, you’ll want to sample this one. It’s a mix of freesia, cedarwood, & orange flower delivered to you on a mini roller. It’s affordable MSRP is $21.20150914_174631
There are 3 full-sized products in this month’s box. That’s incredible! I love getting BB5 delivered each month. It always brings a smile to my face. You can find out product info & ordering info by visiting http://www.beautybox5.com. You won’t regret giving them a try!

I received the aforementioned products in exchange for an honest review. All opinions are mine.

Raveled: Anne McAneny

Sixteen years ago, Allison Fennimore’s life was irreparably altered when her father was convicted of 2 murders. High school golden boy, Bobby Kettrick, & local girl, Shelby Anderson, were both found murdered in separate homicide scenes. Artie Fennimore was arrested for both crimes. As a result, their small town turned on Artie’s family making them social pariahs & resulting in Allison being sent to her aunt’s to live.

Now, a grown-up Allison, living far from the town, has received a call from her brother, Kevin. Serving some time in a rehab facility has given Kevin ample opportunity to think about the events from their past. Due to years of substance abuse, Kevin has repressed many of the facts of the cases. Something is gnawing at his memory. Knowing his hands are currently tied, he appeals to Allison to launch her own investigation.

Against her better judgment, Allison goes to stay with their mother who is currently battling the early stages of dementia. Mom isn’t much help as she fades in & out of reality. But, the major players from that fateful night are still in town. Perfect timing for Allison also provides a high school reunion where Bobby’s best friends can be found.

Reliving the worst time in her life won’t be easy & it soon becomes obvious that none of the Fennimores are wanted in Lavitte any more. With the help of a kind-hearted detective, Allison starts the case over from scratch. Was her father really a cold-hearted killer or a scapegoat for something more sinister?

‘Raveled’ is an incredible mystery. Anne McAneny has a gift for taking cases that could be featured in any town’s newspaper & making them into extraordinary novels. As pleased as I was with reading ‘Skewed’, I liked this one even more. There’s just something amazing about a novel that makes you really think about what the outcome will be. With all the intricacies of Artie’s case, it was very difficult to figure out just what was really going on until the end.

Every character was believable & Allison played the perfect heroine. She was fearlessly protective of her family & willing to put herself on the line for them. No doubt many families who’ve had loved ones in prison have gone through similar circumstances. Although she’s a fictional character, Allison can serve as a role model to those families. She stared a judgmental town in the face & stayed strong.

I know it isn’t easy for author’s to utilize past & present scenes to flow seamlessly, but Anne McAneny has nailed that, too. I look forward to more of her works in the future & highly recommend this read with a 5 star rating.

*For sensitive readers: There are some sexual scenes in the novel. Once you begin reading it, you’ll seen that they do fit into the plot & aren’t there as a an afterthought.
