Book Review: Ashley's War, The Untold Story of a Team of Women Soldiers on the Special Ops Battlefield by Gayle Tzemach Lemmon

Ashley's War:  The Untold Story of a Team of Women Soldiers on the Special Ops Battlefield by Gayle Tzemach Lemmon is a non-fiction book published in April 2015.  The story follows several women and their quest to become the first women to be in combat along the Green Berets and Army Rangers. This is a book that was selected in my workplace for discussion between women and/or veterans.  The book discussion was broken into three parts much like how the story was broken up.  It garnered great conversations. Some of the things that happened in the book didn't surprise me, such as how physically demanding the tryouts were to be part of the special operations.  It's a demanding job that requires people to be not only physically strong but mentally strong.     What did shock me was that it took the military so long to allow women to fight along men on the battlefield.  Another thing that astonished me were how accepting most of the men in the Army Rangers were of the women fight

Product Review: Pureology Professional Color Care Strength Cure Shampoo

I received Pureology Professional Color Care Strength Cure Shampoo from Influenster.com and Pureology for free in exchange for my honest review. When I received the news that I was receiving this product, I was ecstatic because my hair was over processed and breaking off from having it colored incorrectly and then being corrected.  This Pureology Professional Color Care Strength Cure Shampoo has a light, clean scent. It's very gentle on my hair, and it made my hair feel thicker and stronger. Another plus is that as I washed my hair with it, my hair didn't get tangled. After using this product for a month and a half, my hair looks so much better, and it's nice that my hair actually feels like hair again instead of hay. This is something I would definitely buy if I have issues with my hair being over processed again, and I don't have any complaints. However, the one thing you should be aware of is that this product is a bit pricey, so I don't want you to have sticker

Book Review: Trick or Treat Murder (A Lucy Stone Mystery, #3) by Leslie Meier

Trick or Treat Murder (A Lucy Stone Mystery, #3) by Leslie Meier is set in Tinker's Cove, Maine, and the entire town is preparing a party in a dilapidated mansion to celebrate Halloween. However, everyone is on edge because there has been a rash of fires thought to be the work of an arsonist. The latest one killing a summer resident. Who will be the latest victim? Is anyone else a fan of Halloween like I am? This was the perfect book to put me in the mood for the holiday, and this is a must read if you do like Halloween. It brought back so many memories of my childhood of trick or treating and the Halloween parties that my parents and the rest of the parents in the neighborhood put on for us kids that were similar to the one in Trick or Treat Murder . Having an arsonist setting fires in the book only made it creepier, but not scary. There were quite a few red herrings in the book. With that being said, there were clues to who it really was, and I dismissed those clues much to my c
