Book & Song & Body

"...when you go hard your nay's become yay's..."

Book: Something Borrowed by Emily Giffin (my favorite author). I love love love this book (and the sequel Something Blue) & I am so excited that they have made movie about it which comes out Friday!! I hope it lives up to the book. I read Something Borrowed about 6 years ago and I'm tempted to whip it out and re-read it before I head off to the movie. I highly recommend this entertaining novel full of girlfriend drama, humor, and incredibly relatable situations & emotions.

Song: Fly, Nicki Minaj. This song gives me the same goosebumps as You're A Superstar did when our choreographer at Miss Teen USA 2005 played it as our warm-up for the telecast! This song is awesome, that's really all I have to say.

that is how I know that the time is near
so we become alive in a time of fear..."

Body:  Murad AHA/BHA Exfoliating Cleanser. I really love the Muard products. This facial cleanser is the perfect balance of sudsy soap and exfoliation & it's perfect for my sensitive skin. I have had my tube of it since last summer and it's not even half way gone (a little bit is all you need to get the job done!). Plus, it's part of the "Anti-Aging" line and I love the thought of combating wrinkles before 30. I think this review from the Murad website perfectly sums up my appreciation for the product:
"This cleanser gracefully walks a delicate line. It is an effective exfoliating cleanser, but is gentle at the same time. My favorite thing about it is the way that moisturizers absorb better after using it. This is a product that accomplishes what it promises."
