Summer is finally here, and I’ve been busy devouring books. I love reading chick lit and quirky novels in the summer sun. Here’s what I’ve been reading lately, and what you should pack for your next pool side vacation or beach chair read.
Wonderfully addictive, I loved the multicultural characters, and the strong female lead focused on her career.
Rhiannon Hunter may have revolutionized romance in the digital world, but in real life she only swipes right on her career—and the occasional hookup. The cynical dating app creator controls her love life with a few key rules. Only there aren’t any rules to govern her attraction to her newest match, former pro-football player Samson Lima. The sexy and seemingly sweet hunk woos her one magical night… and disappears. Rhi thought she’d buried her hurt over Samson ghosting her, until he suddenly surfaces months later, still big, still beautiful—and in league with a business rival. He says he won’t fumble their second chance, but she’s wary. A temporary physical partnership is one thing, but a merger of hearts? Surely that’s too high a risk… Buy it here.
You can never have too many highlighters. Stila has come out with an amazing highlighter palette called “Little White Lies Heavenly Highlighting Palette”. This one is special because on the surface, the colours look very similar. When applied, each shade comes to life, and transforms. The texture is a cream and powder combination.
Another cool thing about the highlighter is the base is actually translucent. What is being picked up by the light, are actually tinted pearl particles. The palette comes with 3 shades, and lasts all day when applied.
This palette is perfect to give you a summer glow.
Caesar cocktail lovers eagerly welcomed the Score on King to Toronto. This new pub hails from the west coast, and are known for their massive, over the top Caesars.

When they aren’t serving brunch, they have an all day menu with nachos, fried chicken, avocado fries, pulled pork mac n’ cheese, sushi sliders and other staples. (more…)
