I got sent a lovely dress by eShakti for an honest product review. I have already worked with this company before so I was super happy when I was approached once again.

eShakti is a company that makes sure that clothes look good on you! You have the option of sending your exact measurements to eShakti and the dress, top, jacket, skirt, or pant to be tailored to you body. Not only will they use your exact measurement you can also choose the length of the item. Also…their dresses have pockets.

I chose this cute little black dress with embroiled poppy flowers. Or at least I think they are poppy flowers. Pretty flowers. Once again I was blown away at the quality of the product. The embroiling is so soft i have to continuously remind myself to not run my fingers across it. The actual dress is made of cotton and it is not flimsy cotton either, but strong firm cotton that will survive the washing machine a million times.

The dress is a standard size of M-10, I could have sent over my exact measurements, but I have a pretty standard body and most Ms fit me pretty nicely. eSkati offers standard sizes of 0-36W for those people like me who feel that hey have a standard bodies. But if you have bustier than the standard person this website will be tailored to you.

TeaTime with Mercy

I was given some cute accessories by this Etsy store called TeaTime with Mercy.

Mercy makes handmade collar clips, keychains, chockers, necklaces and phone plugs.

Mercy is Miami based and loves all cute things. Many things in her store can fall under kawaii fashion culture. Especially the Sailormoon charms. Like I said everything is handmade, so she puts all her magical girl magic in her products and frankly it shows. 

My favorite charm so far are these Book Clips, Flower Clips and the Kitty cat clips.

Mercy is also has a few more products in the works. Like mermaid macaroons, victorian and unicorn collar clips, and many more keychains! Cookies, cakes and all the sweets.

You may also contact her if you want a certain item customized a certain way or if you do not see the item listed in the store. Mercy also takes special requests with certain items in order to provide you with the best product possible. She's super flexible and just wants all your dreams to come true~


Crooked Kingdom by Leigh Bardugo | Book Talk

1:00 PM Ally M.G. 0 Comments

"Kaz Brekker and his crew have just pulled off a heist so daring even they didn't think they'd survive. But instead of divvying up a fat reward, they're right back to fighting for their lives. Double-crossed and badly weakened, the crew is low on resources, allies, and hope. As powerful forces from around the world descend on Ketterdam to root out the secrets of the dangerous drug known asjurda parem, old rivals and new enemies emerge to challenge Kaz's cunning and test the team's fragile loyalties. A war will be waged on the city's dark and twisting streets―a battle for revenge and redemption that will decide the fate of the Grisha world."

Crooked Kingdom is the sequel to Six of Crows. And in my opinion...Leigh Bardugo's best work yet. 

From the Grisha world I only truly liked the stories of the six misfits and the impossible heist. Six of Crows is a fantastic story and I recommend everyone to read it. 

Crooked Kingdom is out of this world. After finishing Six of Crows you'd think Crooked Kingdoms would be about what happened in the previous book towards the end...but it's so much more. Bardugo did not make the ending of Six of Crow the main plot of Crooked Kingdoms and it was brilliant. 

This story focus more on Kaz and how devious he is, but also how loyal he is. Him and the rest of the crew work together to clear their name and get their 4 million kruge. Watching how the story slowly unfolded with single threads breaking and revealing more. 

I am not entirely please with the ending, not because it was a bad ending. Someone dies and it hurt my heart deeply. That someone truly deserved to live, and find happiness. 

Wylan's point of views were on point and it made me love the boy more. 

Six of Crows started as an impossible heist, but Crooked Kingdom revealed that it was actually a well thought out plan of revenge that took years to actually set in motion. A revenge that roots to the importance of what hurting family can mean. A plan that will you blow you away as it slowly unfolds and as its back ends are slowly revealed. 

Everyone was a different person and yet still themselves at the end of Crooked Kingdom. That's what I call delicious character development. 

Crooked Kingdom has officially joined my lists of best books of the year.

Rating: 5/5
