A fairy tale: dreams really do come true!

The day an ordinary girl becomes a princess! Dreams really do come true. Never think the impossible in life. What a magical day in the world. Though I am American I have a lot of British blood from all 4 of my grandparents so guess what... I'm going to claim her as my princess, too... so there! :) Not really so don't get mad.

The thing I love most about Kate is her gentle nature and kind spirit...and the fact she is SO down to earth. I think it's amazing she did her own make up for her ROYAL wedding. That says a lot.

Here are some of my favorite pictures from today and a laugh at some of the hats
 {sorry... I can't help myself}.

This is my favorite picture! It captures her beauty, grace, joy and class.

So happy!
She is so beautiful!

Now on to the hats... I just don't get some of these!

The girl on the right wins the award for worst hat for the century! 

Not sure about the hat Vic but the dress and shoes look ravishing on you!

Looks like a bowl.

I couldn't pull it off but I think it's really pretty!

Wills cousin Zara looks amazing from head to toe!

Hey! It's Mr. Bean! I think her hat is cute and love her shoes!

Very Kentucky derby... I like!

The woman on the right looks stunning and her hat is perfect for her.

Careful with that hat... might poke yer eye out!

The late princess Diana's nieces got it right! They look very feminine and beautiful. Adorable hats!

What a magical historic day!

Stack O'Books! Summer reads!

You think someone got a little over zealous at the library? Just looking at it overwhelms me but I can and I will conquer this feat! So, if you are looking for fun, girly books then here is your list. I can't promise they are all good though. 

::::List of books from top to bottom::::

1. Cecelia Ahern "The Book Of Tomorrow"- loved this book to no end. She is quickly becoming one of my favorite authors. I have read all of her books expect maybe two? She also wrote Ps. I love you. I read this book in a day and a half and could not put it down... kept me up until 5am {and I had to be up at 8am}. It was beautifully written and with each page you were left wondering what was going to happen and what was really going on. 

2. Cecelia Ahern "Thanks For The Memories"- like with all her books you get really into the characters. This book was a little drawn out for me and while I liked the ending I was not satisfied with it ending there... I wanted to hear more about what happened. The dynamic between the daughter and father was charming.

3. Kim Addonizio "Little Beauties"- I've gotten to chapter 3 so far and I'm not sure if this book is something I want to finish. I just hasn't really captured my attention. The main character has OCD and her little necrotic idiocracies are kind starting to bug me.  

4. Kenda Wilkinson "Sliding Into Home"- the fact I even got this kinda makes me LOL but then again it's totally me to get this book. I always wish I could be a fly on the wall so reading a biography kinda let's you do so. I've already read two chapters and so far so good!

5.  Meg Cabot "Queen Of Babble"- I haven't read it yet but yes I did judge a book by it's cover because it looked cute. The story sounded kinda cute as well... so we shall see.

6. Suzanne Hansen "You'll Never Nanny In This Town Again (The true adventures of a Hollywood Nanny"- just by reading the inside cover I knew I had to read this. It sounds funny, shocking, cute and it's ALL true. Can't wait to read it!

7. Cecelia Ahern "There's No Place Like Here"-As you can see I can't enough of her reading. She is so unbelievably talented! This book sounds like a page turned... I'm sure I'll be up late reading this like I do with ALL her books.

8. Fiona Gibson "Baby Face (Red Dress Ink)- looked cute, sounded cute and anything that has to do with being a momma and still lusting over fashion, shoes, etc makes me want to read! However from reading reviews on Amazon it doesn't sound very hopeful! :( Actually it sounds very bad but I'll still give it a go.

9. Beth Harbison "Shoe Addicts Anonymous"- Sounds like a cute plot, cute cover (yes, I'm guilty again) and she has had a lot bestsellers so again we will see how it goes. I really want to check out her book "Hope In a Jar". 

So, my little book worms... do you have any good reads for me. By now you know I love girly books and I'm a HUGE sucker for any British/Irish girly novels. Send your recs my way! :) I want to read Brook Burkes new book "The Naked Mom" and Jenny McCarthy's book "Love, Lust and Faking It".

Rodial Glamoxy Snake Serum Overview

Now that I've used this for a couple months I feel I can give you a proper overview on how the Snake Serum performs. Let me start by saying that I really love this product for a number of reasons. It really tightens up the face, plumps fine lines and gives an over brightness to your skin. If you haven't read my other posts about the Snake serum you are probably wondering what is it and how it works. This serum is designed to mimic the effects of the paralyzing snake venom. I must stress that it's not made out of real snake venom.

This contains Syn-ake, a neuropeptide mimics the effects of a Vipers potent venom to freeze facial muscles and reduce the formation of new lines while plumping the skin to reduce the appearance of current wrinkles. Added Ronasphere fades skins perfections and corrects skin tone, while Pomegranate Ellegic Tannin protects the skin from damage cause by environmental pollutants. 

Overall, I think this serum is really great and there has been a positive improvement since starting it. You can apply this morning and night. You will feel the tightening right away {best to wait 2 minutes untouched to soak into your skin} and then apply your favorite moisturizer over this. I do have to note that the tightness you will feel is subtle and will not be bothersome to you whatsoever. Using this you will have powerful antioxidant protection throughout your day. This contains no SPF so make sure you don't forget that!

What first peaked my interest with the Snake Serum is the fact that so many celebrities with skin that I have envied for ages use this! Cheryl Cole, Victoria Beckham, Kate Moss, Katie Holmes, Kate Boswoth. Enough said! They all have amazing skin!

Final results. They recommend using for 28 days to get the full effect.
