July Reviews | I Finished That!
Hello everyone … I finally finished my latest book From Gilmore Girls to Gilmore Girls so I just wanted to give a short review and talk about one of my samples that I got from Mario Badescu … so let’s get to it.
Talking as Fast as I Can: From Gilmore Girls to Gilmore Girls | I started this book in the beginning of June + yes I only read on my commutes to and from work [so it takes a while to finish] and from the beginning it’s a bubbly + engaging + and an informative book about how Lauren Graham [Gilmore Girls + Parenthood] came to be an actress. She talked about her upbringings and the struggle that most young actress face + and well as nudity in rolls and being stuck in a certain character type. Gilmore Girls lasted for 7 seasons and it’s just a beautiful show to me because it addresses so many things. It’s about a single Mom raising her daughter + and figuring out everything else in between [which is really me an my daughter just flipped]. The book goes on to talk about filming and the different stars on the show as well as the reboot that’s currently on Netflix’s + and how it ends on a cliffhanger. I really enjoyed this book and I’ll tell you by the end I got a little choked up … especially because the book ends with the opening song of the show called. “Where You Lead” by Carole King + Toni Stern. The song was re-written by Carole King because the original didn’t fit the theme of the series. I would definitely recommend this book + it’s a great read at any season.
Mario Badescu Bee Pollen Night Cream | I know I raved about the Seaweed Night Cream but this one may be the tie breaker. My skin loves this cream + and with all the MB products it’s absorbs into the skin well + and has a nice light scent. The cream is a little heavier than your average moisturizer but I would expect that in a night cream. It contains Bee Pollen extract and Beeswax to help nourish your skin. This cream is best for anti-aging and dry skin. My skin feels soft and refreshed in the morning and it really has a wonderful glow. This night cream also works well with my other products + and acne medicine. I love this cream + and my full sized one is on the way.
