The Pipers Son

One of my favourite authors, Melina Marchetta's latest novel - The Pipers Son is a brilliant read.
Whilst it is not an actual sequel to Saving Francessca, it follows the same characters years later, but this time the story is focused on Tom.
The story is based around Tom's reconnecting with his old friends and family, after a period where he wiped himself out. The ups and downs of complicated friendships and family issues is explored in great detail and I love that this is Australian, so the references are familiar.
A truly brilliant story, emotional and believable. It was so easy to get wrapped up in this story I had to force myself to read only a chapter or two each day, so that I didnt devour the entire book in a matter of hours.
The Pipers Son is one of Melina Marchetta's best novels and is definitely going to be added to my list of fave books.

Pic of the Day - Tropical Dreaming

This is what I am dreaming of today -
a warm tropical getaway, staying in an overwater bungalow.

Sunsilk Longer and Stronger

I've just bought myself some new Sunsilk Longer and Stronger Shampoo and it is lovely.
It lathers really creamily and foamy and smells like that moment when you open a packet of Allens lollies. Most delicious smell.
I havent used it long enough yet to notice a massive difference in the strength of my hair, but, despite not using conditioner, it did make my hair smoother and felt great when I was done.

Hershey's Lipbalm

The latest lipbalm I bought was a little tin of Hershey Chocolate (Lotta Luv) lipgloss.
I've been wanting to try this one for ages, since I saw it in Priceline.

They come in cute little rectangular tins with retro design, and the tin is actually lined with a hard plastic inside, so that once you've used all the gloss, you can reuse tht tin.
The gloss is rich chocolatey in smell, and has a nice sweet flavour too. It is slightly brownish tinted and a bit shimmery. Totally luscious.

The downside: Why cant i stop the cravings for chocolate?

White Wings Chunkies

I have now tried the new White Wings Chunkies.

They are gorgeous home style biscuits with big chunks of flavour.

I really enjoyed the White Choc and Macadamia - they're buttery, almost shortbread like in taste, with chunks of nut and white choc. Lovely.

And the Triple Choc Chunk are also delicious, with a chocolatey biscuit and chunks of white and dark chocolate through them.

YUM !!!

Heres a cute picture of a Polar Bear from Snelvis on DeviantArt. Such a gorgeous shot.

Garnier Pure Active

I've been using a new face scrub, Garnier Pure Active Blackhead Clearing Scrub for a few weeks now and its been excellent.

After using my skin immediately feels deeply cleansed, soft and smooth.
I would say that my skin has definitely cleared up and small blackheads are gone.
Plus I love the smell and feel of the the little beads that exfoliate while I am using it.

I am definitely going to add this one to my list of great beauty stuff.
