Links to Love

Hello Lovelies!
It actually hasn't been that bad of a week, I'm sick of course, but I'm always sick. Work hasn't been too bad either, it's actually been slow in my department. I had one of the top departments Sunday, but since then it has really slowed down.

I'm really excited because my manager goes on vacation next week and once she comes back from vacation she's going to start training me to pierce ears!!! I'm really excited, I already have two volunteers for training.

Here's this week's Links to Love! 

That's all for this week! What links have you been loving?

Book Review: Rachel Lee - Conard County Witness

Hello Lovelies!
Today I will be reviewing 'Conard County Witness' by Rachel Lee, copy received from Netgalley via Harlequin in exchange for an honest review.

'Conard County Witness' is a romantic suspense novel, it is 204 pages long and it took me about four  hours to read. It is available at Amazon (for $3.99), and NOOKBOOK ($3.99).

About The Book

Genre: Romantic Suspense

Length: 204 Pages

Publisher: Harlequin

Release Date: December 1, 2015

Book Synopsis
A killer stalks a wounded warrior and the woman he's vowed to protect.

I found you. The game begins. The note wasn't exactly a threat. But Jess McGregor senses danger.The wounded ex-soldier offers Lacy Devane a place to feel safe after her stint in witness protection. But someone is after her...or is Jess the intended target?

Jess and Lacey are practically strangers. And the powerful attraction stirring between them may feel like a betrayal to Jess's late wife - Lacey's closest friend. But as a big freeze envelops Conard county, the warmth and healing they find in their growing friendship will be put to the ultimate test by a deranged killer.

What did I think?

Like: Everything, duh it's Rachel Lee, I love all her books!
Dislike: Nothing.

Would I recommend it?
I would definitely recommend this book, I loved everything about it and would definitely re-read it.
Everything just flowed together, from the first page to the last, I never got bored.

I think the relationship that formed between Lacey and Jess was very believable, I believe that being friends before going into a relationship can only make it stronger.

The suspense of the story really kept me thinking, not knowing who the hunter was, but reading what he was thinking was kind of creepy. There was one part of his story line that made me uncomfortable, but I can handle it, I know it's just a story.

Overall, I would definitely recommend this book.

Thank you Harlequin via Netgalley for providing me with this book in exchange for an honest review!

Top Ten Tuesday: Books On My Fall TBR List

Hello Lovelies,
Top 10 Tuesdayis a weekly link-up hosted by The Broke and the Bookish.
This Week's Theme: Ten Characters I'd name a child/dog/cat/car/etc. after.

I decided to go off topic this week, I really wanted to do this week's TTT, but I just wasn't feeling the topic. I missed this year's Books On My Fall TBR List, so I figured why not give it a go this week!
Mockingjay by Suzanne Collins
I'm almost done with book #2 and I can't wait to start #3.

Welcome Home, Cowboy by Annie Rains
I received this as an arc through Netgalley forever ago and I really want to get it read so I can review it.

Tough Luck Hero by Maisey Yates
This is another arc that I need to get off my shelf.

Her Holiday Protector by Lenora Worth
One more arc and I'm done, I've been doing really good here lately. I haven't been requesting any new books and I'm working on reading what I have.

Fragile by Nikki Grahame
I found this on Good Reads and I'm really interested in reading it.

Merry Cowboy Christmas by Carolyn Brown
Not gonna lie I'm ready for Halloween to be over so that I can start getting excited for Christmas!

Buried by Elizabeth Goddard
I love a good romantic suspense, this one looks like it could be really good. I've never read anything by this author, so I'll let y'all know if I like her writing.

Surviving The Storm by Heather Woodhaven
Another new author for me, I'm really trying to branch out.

I only managed to come up with 8 books that I really want to read this fall, but I think I have a pretty good list and I'm excited to get going.

What topic did you choose this week?
Leave your links below and I'll check them out!

Links to Love

Hello Lovelies!
It's hard to believe we're already half way through the month of October. Unfortunately I'm getting ready for work, but I do have tomorrow off and it's going to be a crazy day. At 12 I have a baby shower, 3-5 is a birthday party at the park, and at 5 is my uncle's wedding 30 minutes from the park, so it should be a fun afternoon.

I'm kind of nervous, it's been a long time since my family has got together and with all the recent drama it should be an interesting day.

Anyway, here's this week's Links to Love!

That's all for today, wish me luck tomorrow!

5 Must Have Makeup Products Under $10

Hello Lovelies!
This post has been in my draft box since July and I just now noticed. The post was completely finished, I just never posted it, and I don't know why.

So here is my 5 Must Have Makeup Products Under $10!
I've been using this eyeliner for about four years now and I love it, it truly is waterproof and stays on all day. (I love it more than the Urban Decay Perversion Eyeliner, it might not be as black, but it definitely lasts longer and wears better!!!)

I have the color Bella Bronze (Not the one in the picture). This has been my go to eye look for about three months now. 

Maybelline Eye Studio Color Tattoo Eyeshadow $6.99
I have four of these and I love them, the only bad one I've got so far is the Painted Purple shade, all the others are amazing and long wearing.

Maybelline Eye Studio Lasting Drama Gel Eyeliner $9.99
This is the only gel eyeliner I have ever tried and I love it. The brush that comes with it is okay, it's not the best, but it gets the job done.

L'Oreal Paris Infallible 24 Hour Pro-Matte Foundation $12.99
So far, I can honestly say this is my favorite drugstore foundation, but, if I had to choose between it and the Urban Decay Naked Skin Foundation, I would choose Urban Decay. 

What are your must have products under $10?
Let me know below!

Life Update: Demi Lovato, Promotion, Holiday World

Hello Lovelies!
I cannot believe it's already the end of September! So much has happened this month, it started out really good and then of course the bad had to happen and ruin some of my happiness. I'm still really happy and so far, September has been the best month of 2016!
September 6th & 7th
On the 6th, I found out that I had won tickets to see Demi Lovato and Nick Jonas in Nashville, Tennessee at Bridgestone Arena! First of all, Demi is my all time favorite musician, I love her and her music so much. I was freaking out, I decided to take my best friend Morgan with me. I've never drove in a big city like Nashville, so she offered to drive.

I know they were free, but the seats we got were awful. Thankfully my best friend is much crazier than me and she decided we were going to seat hop. We started out being able to see behind the stage and not being able to see the screen. After walking all the way to the other side of the arena we ended up in some really good seats.

Eventually, later on we were joined by some other seat hoppers and they made the concert even better, even if one of them did give me a headache by screaming directly in my ear the whole concert. Our new friends were two very drunk, very gay guys, and I love them and I wish they were my friends!

When Nick Jonas came out on stage, the one standing beside me started screaming at the top of his lungs, "Daddy! That's daddy!" Even though he was hanging all over me, screaming in my ear, and booty bumping all night, it was the best night of my life.

By the end of the night the total line up for the show was Cord Overstreet, Mike Posner, Nick Jonas, and Demi Lovato. Also, Demi performed her duet with Brad Paisley, then Nick came out and they all three sang a song. And then, (yes there's more) Nick Jonas performed with Thomas Rhett, before Demi came out to close the show.

September 9th
As some of you may know I've worked at Walmart as a cashier since June 2015, I've been trying to transfer departments for a while now. On September 9th, I got the good news that I got the position I applied for. On September 17th, I started my new position as a jewelry sales associate.

September 10th
This was the day I got to go to Holiday World, I had only been one other time and it wasn't a good experience, I almost drowned on my first visit. I ended up not going to the water park this time, (I still can't swim), but I still managed to get completely soaked.

My advice if you ever go to Holiday World, make sure you go on the Raging Rapids, it is my favorite ride in the park. I went with my mom and my two little cousins (ages 5 &12) and they loved it too, we ended up riding it 7 times, and they wanted to keep going.

September 13th
This is the day the bad decided to come back into my life. I was going down stairs to get ready for work when I fell. I fell down 10 stairs and I have no idea what happened. I ended up with bruising from my neck to my back, thankfully nothing was broke. But it's been a week and a half and I'm still in a lot of pain. My neck and my hips/butt got most of the impact, my chiropractor says it's going to take time for me to heal.

Overall, it was a pretty good month, I'm gonna do my best to get back on track with blogging starting tomorrow!
How has September treated you? Let me know below!
