Recently I received a book, “Style Eyes”, from a giveaway given by The Mama Report. I’ve always been a little intimidated about the use of eye makeup so I was especially happy to get this particular book. The introduction to the book states that “This is no ordinary makeup guide. Not just full of pretty pictures, this book will help you understand the composition of the eye and eyebrow, teach you why you should choose one specific shade over another based on the look you are trying to achieve and the color and shape of your eyes and eyebrows, and offer simple step-by-step instructions to achieve professional-quality looks for all ages and occasions.” This book accomplishes that and it also offers advice on proper eye care, shaping eyebrows, and even how to make your eyes stand out if you wear eyeglasses. Not only is this book full of relevant information, it contains some beautiful photography by Albert Sanchez. If you are interested in a comprehensive book on eye makeup then I would certainly recommend “Style Eyes” by makeup artist, Taylor Chang-Babaian.
This book review was totally unsolicited and I was not compensated in any way for this review. These are my honest opinions without regard to any compensation.

I have to say I have been a sucker for books from the Romance genre ever since high school when I was introduced to Jane Eyre. Of course these days my readings are less classic and more contemporary. Usually, I read just for entertainment and you’ll always find a stack of Harlequin Romance novels by my bed. I do enjoy mysteries, nonfiction, self help and cookbooks. For this review I read a Young Adult Romance because they seem to be quite popular. My choice was “Arousing Love” by M. H. Strom. Although romance between young teens is not my usual cup of tea, I found this book to be enjoyable and inspiring. It is about a 18 year old boy who meets and falls in love with a 15 year old girl whose family is vacationing near where he lives. The book deals with their age difference and the hard decision to remain celibate despite the feelings that they are experiencing. Another aspect of the story dealt with the fact that the girl was a Christian and the boy was a nonbeliever. This was a large part of the book and I loved how the author handled it. There was only one section that I felt was a little preachy but for the most part it was very balanced. I think young teens would like this book and it could be a very good book for those experiencing first love and the hard decisions they face.
I received a Logitech Alert 750i Master System in a giveaway held by The Frugal Find several months ago. This is a camera security system and although I wanted a security system I can’t say that I was very excited about it. That all changed when I saw this system in action. First let me tell you a little about it. In the package there is a smart camera and the PC software. Then you just install the software, connect to your network and plug in the camera ( using your own outlets and electrical wiring to connect to your network and transmit video). You can watch live video or store video to your PC and review the recorded video later. A relative of mine was having some problems that made it necessary for him to borrow my security system. He mounted the camera to catch activity in his yard. He was able to view this activity on his computer at work, on his smart phone as well as having it recorded on his PC at home. So far he has found out which dog has been killing his chickens and who has been riding a four wheeler through his front yard. I was amazed at the clarity of the video. This is not like one of those fuzzy bank robbery videos you see on TV. Everything about this system is sophisticated and high quality. I ‘m truly excited about the Logitech Alert 750i Master System now. I could’nt be more pleased. Thank you Logitech and The Frugal Find!
