Just Read

A Stranger in the House (2017) by Shari Lapena

This is the first book I've finished in 2019. It was nice to read it. The first half was a little intense. Gradually it turned quite interesting. And the ending was amazing.

Story: There is little peace for main characters Karen, husband Tom and neighbour Brigid in this story. Karen crashes a car, claims memory loss and is investigated for murder. Karen express worries about someone beeing in their house uninvited. They don't see anyone. And Brigid who's a friend of Karen shows strange and scary behaviour. Brigid has great interest in her neighbours Karen and Tom. She has a place in her house with view to their house. She has glued herself to this spot! I can imagine her sleeping there. Karen thinks Brigid might be useful in the investigation. At a certain point investigators turn their attention to Brigid too.

The most interesting to me was Brigid's behaviour, the expressed worries about someone entering the house of Tom and Brigid without them knowing it and the ending. Something totally new happened  that showed how much things will change for these three. I loved it! And would like to read something similar.

Have you read this book?

One to Try For Relaxation

Organic Lavender aqua oleum Julia Lawless

Lavender has usually not caught my attention. Gradually I've grown found of the scent. One way I like to calm down is by scents. Like with scented candles or like in this case with oils. In the shower I put some drops of this on the floor. The scent fills the room quickly and instantly makes me calm. This is just what I need during weeks. Lavender is known to be something that people can feel calmed by. Another oil favorite I have from this brand is the eucalyptus one. That too has a calming  effect on me. I've found these in the Life shops. I would highly reccomend them if you think scents can be a good way for you to relax.

What scents/products do you find relaxing?

Best Winter Beauty Treat?

Missguided Gloss Boss lip kit. The colors are so pale but not boring at all.

I recently found my new favorite makeup products in this lip kit. I think they look best together for full pigmentation. The finish of these look very pretty! The gloss is intense and the colors fresh in a subtle way. The vinyl shine is interesting. Because these products strongly gives me a feel-good vibe I think they will be some of my most used makeup products for some time.
