3 Essential Oil Blends That Will Get You In The Mood For Summertime

Summer is coming! I'm so excited! What is Summer to you?

To me, summer is a beautiful time of lazy mornings, late nights, good beer, friends and family, and cookouts. Beach trips, hiking, shopping downtown, playing with dogs in the park, and getting projects done that I don't have time for during the busy school year.

Well not today, girl! I did my hair mask for five minutes.

And the results are off the charts.

Calily's Argan Oil Hair Mask Treatment is a conditioner made from all natural oils and extracts. This product is one I originally got discounted via EDC. I ended up loving it so much I added it to my dash buttons and buy it regularly. It is amazing.

    Ingredients:

    3. damp or dry hair - after washing, use a VERY SMALL amount and work into hair as a leave-in conditioner.

    I've used the treatment in all three of these methods, and I can't tell you which is better. They all work wonders!

    My hair always smells incredible, feels soft and silky and luxurious, and is smooth and shiny.

    Review: The Black Book

    I've read a lot of James Patterson books over the past few years, and this isn't the worst one, but it's definitely not on my list of recommendations for crime thrillers.

    The Black Book by James Patterson
    Genre: Crime Thriller
    ISBN: B06WVJ7V8H
    Pub date: March 27, 2017
    Rating: 3

    What makes a good crime thriller? A confusing crime scene, interesting characters, a complex plot, and unexpected bad guys.

    The Black Book had only one of those: Good characters. Patterson is great at character development and creating vivid dynamic unique characters.

    All the rest has really been lacking lately.

    Out of 9 CDs of the audiobook, I figured it all out by the middle of disk 3.

    So all things considered, if you want a good crime thriller and an exciting court case, try a James Sheehan instead.

    *also, why is there a chick on the front cover?
