Eco Tools Duo Eye Brushes from my local market early in the month. I've always been a huge fan of Eco Tools because of their philosophy and because they're products never really let me down. I enjoy that they are super affordable cruelty free brand that truly care about the environment. Everything can be recycled and the materials are super sustainable (:
Pacifica Mascara. I've always wanted to try out Pacifica beauty products because I've always heard really good things about them. I only ever ventured into their makeup wipes and perfumes. Pacifica also is a cruelty free and vegan makeup brand that supports clean waters. I'm only guessing that because it was a mineral mascara it wasn't too harsh on my lashes, which i enjoyed. It was fairly super natural so it didn't look like I had several coats of it on which was also a huge plus for me.
Eleanor by Jason Gurely. It's a literary fiction novel with fantastical elements. I don't know why I've been reading such emotional reads but I'm so glad that this was one of them.
The novel centers around two women named Eleanor both related by a generation apart. When the book first starts it introduces the first Eleanor whose deeply struggling with family life. Years pass and the story is told about the other Eleanor who has to battle with a mother is an alcoholic and family tragedy. Throughout the book, you're pushed into these deep subjects and ache for what these characters are going through. And it's not so much about the central characters but the characters/family around them too. Jason Gurley did a beautiful job of balancing grief/loss,with surreal fantasy. He not only did a amazing job at capturing the strong tones of depression but the effects of what it has to people around you who care. The fantasy elements of the book really tied everything together in such an intricate way that you didn't feel like you were reading something but watching something like The Lovely Bones or The Dreams May Come. I'm so happy I picked up this book and read Jason Gurely because now I feel like I have a standard of what incredible books look and feel like. I couldnt recommend this book enough!
And now to the green babies like look like olives. They're called Kiwi Berries that are native to New Zealand. They're literally just a berry that taste and look like kiwis without the fuzzy skin. You eat them just like you would a blueberry and a blackberry. But I've learned not to eat too much or you get the sourness of eating too much kiwi.
I honestly couldn't have asked for better products to start my spring in.
