About the Book
The crash of a U.S. military research satellite in the remote wilds of Mongolia and China triggers an explosive search for the valuable cargo it holds: a code-black physics project connected to the study of dark energy, the energy connected to the birth of our universe. But the last blurry image from the falling satellite captures a chilling sight: a frightening view of a smoldering eastern seaboard of the United States in utter ruin.
At the Vatican, a mysterious package arrives for the head of Pontifical ancient studies, sent by a colleague who had vanished a decade earlier. It contains two strange artifacts: a skull scrawled with ancient Aramaic and a tome bound in human skin. DNA testing reveals both are from Genghis Khan-the long-dead Mongol king whose lost tomb is rumored to hold the vast treasures and knowledge of a lost ancient empire.
Commander Gray Pierce, and Sigma-joined by a pair of Vatican historians-race to uncover a truth tied to the fall of the Roman Empire, to a mystery bound in the roots of Christianity's origins, and to a weapon hidden for centuries that holds the fate of humanity.
MAKE UP FOR EVER Ultra HD Invisible Cover Stick Foundation in Y505
I confess, I am such a delinquent. I have had this MAKE UP FOR EVER Ultra HD Invisible Cover Stick Foundation since back in September. Way before it could officially be found in stores. Of course as soon as I got it, I started using it because, why not? I mean it’s foundation in a stick form. What’s not to love about that? I was lucky enough to attend an event with MUFE where the new foundation was demonstrated. I’ve got to say, that even though I had to leave early, what little I did get to see of the foundation during the demonstration impressed me. But the key would really be on just how I would like the foundation when I tried it out myself. The short answer is that I love it.
Guerlain Météorites Flocons Enchantés
So here is the thing, I love Holiday Collections. It’s a bit of a task for me each year not to run out and just buy everything under the sun. Instead, I tend to pick and choose what I consider the ‘best’ item from the variety of collections and pick it up. The result is that I end up with a mish mash of holiday goodness and it is made of all kinds of awesome and win. But as much as I love doing this, there is one item I miss out on every year. EVERY.SINGLE.YEAR. That item, is none other than the limited edition Guerlain Météorites that is typically released with the Guerlain holiday collection each year. Then I usually end up pouting about once again missing out on the one item that would round out my holiday collection of win. Well not this year my friends. This year I managed to get my hands on the limited edition Guerlain Météorites Flocons Enchantés , and let me tell you friends, it is glorious.
Atelier Cologne Necessaire Nomade Gift Set
So I have been stalking Atelier Cologne for a long time. I gaze at their different scents on the Sephora.ca website, I stop and try to smell the scents when I’m in-store, and just generally lust after them and try to decide just which of the scents I am going to get. Here’s where I run into a problem. When I’m in Sephora, I have a very hard time smelling and differentiating between anything but the strongest of scents. They are all so close together in-store that more often than not, what I think I’m smelling, I’m really not smelling and when I get it home, I invariably don’t like the scent I bought or it doesn’t smell like it did in-store because in-store I was smelling a mix of different scents all at once. And because I absolutely hate returning anything, once I buy it, I usually end up keeping it, even if I don’t like it. But I resolved to stop doing this earlier in the year. I decided to only buy things I really liked so here is where the Atelier Cologne Necessaire Nomade Gift Set comes in. For a price of $55 CAD, I am able to test out 8 different scents from Collection Azur line from Atelier Cologne without spending a fortune. I consider this a win my friends. Invariably, I am not going to like all of the scents, but when you figure that this set is about $6.87 per 0.14 oz fragrance in this set, it’s not too much of a hit financially if you don’t like one of the scents. So what do I think of the various scents in the Atelier Cologne Necessaire Nomade Gift Set? Well follow me and I’ll let you know.
SleekMakeup Blush by 3 in Pumpkin
I have long been a fan of Sleek MakeUP. How could I not be, what with their vibrant colours and affordable prices. Plus, although their products and colours can and does work on any skin tone, they were originally formulated for WOC! Score! I’ve been buying their stuff for a number of years, and yes, it does get shipped from overseas. It’s actually the only brand I buy that I can’t get in the US or Canada, but I’m okay with that. One of my fave products from Sleek is without a doubt their Blush by 3. I own all but one of them, and even that will be mine soon. In any case I love the Blush by 3, especially when travelling. I can carry a lot of blush around without carrying a bunch of different cases. Instead of carrying three different blushes in individual cases that I have to find room for, I can carry three in one. I call that a win my friends. In any case, allow me to introduce you to Sleek Makeup Blush by 3 in Pumpkin!
