Weekend Reading 7.24.21

Happy weekend. Last night I stayed in. I finished this book – it was absolutely amazing… such a great YA thriller. I also watched The Last Letter From Your Lover on Netflix…. And I had been really excited about it as I loved the book. It was… fine? I feel bad saying this but I didn’t love it. If you’ve read the book I’d say skip the movie. Also, Shailene Woodley was (in my opinion, and I’ve loved her in other things) just totally wrong for her role? I don’t know – I’d be very curious to hear your thoughts. I don’t have a lot planned this weekend. Thinking of going to the farmer’s market today and maybe the pool this afternoon. Otherwise, lots of catch up on work, some reading, and just relaxing! It’s supposed to be really nice out this weekend.

    GrandeLash is SO good. The only sad thing is that now I’m stuck using it… forever, ha!

    I have Sexy Beasts on my list out of curiosity. I will see if I feel the same way you did. Did you ever watch Love is Blind? We fell in love with Lauren and Cameron.

    I have been using Grande Lash for years! Multiple times a week I have patients or their family members ask about my lashes and I always recommend this! I will say that you do need to use it religiously, every single night, don’t skip. When I originally started using it I wasn’t seeing results and was tempted to throw it in the trash, but it wasn’t cheap so I kept at it. It probably took almost two months to see a difference for me but one morning I put my mascara on and was like dammmmmmmnnnnnn!!! Lashes for days!!!
