EOS Lip Balm Review

So for my first post I decided to do a review of EOS lip balm because of how popular these lip balms are right now.  If you’re considering buying them to try them out, this review will tell you everything they need to know.  I love these lip balms because they are all natural, they smell great, and they have a super cute sphere shape with fun colors and designs.  Each lip balm is usually around $3.29.  There are many different types of EOS lip balms too.  There are normal moisturizing lip balms, lip shimmer, crystal see-through vegan lip balm, and lip balms with SPF 30.  My two favorite lip balms that I have bought from EOS so far are the EOS Organic Lip Balm in the scent Summer Fruit, and the EOS Sheer Pink Lip Shimmer (The black and pink lip balm pictured below.)  It’s definitely my favorite lip gloss!  EOS lip balms go on very smoothly and feel great on your lips.  They also have a sweet flavor too.  I hope this review helps you if you’re trying to decide if you want to try an EOS lip balm!Image result for eos lip balm image

Movie Review: Live Action Beauty and the Beast

Hi everyone!  I just saw the new live action Disney movie ‘Beauty and the Beast’ starring Emma Watson as Belle and Dan Stevens as the Beast/Prince.

I thought the movie was really good, and it might have even been better than the cartoon version.  The movie was pretty similar to the cartoon version but it was different in a few ways:

  • There were a couple of new songs
  • Belle and the Beast discovered how Belle’s mother died
  • The movie showed what the prince’s life was like before he turned into a beast
  • In the live action version, Belle was the inventor instead of her father being the inventor
  • There was a new character: Cadenza, one of the enchanted objects

I  thought it was a great movie, and Emma Watson was perfect for the role of Belle.  I definitely think you should see the movie if you enjoyed the 1991 version!!!

Black Beauty Book Review

If you love horses,  then you’ll love the book Black Beauty.  The author, Anna Sewell, shows people how horrible it is to mistreat horses.  Black Beauty is one of the first novels that was narrated by a horse.  The theme is that it’s wrong to mistreat horses and drink too much alcohol.

“I have now lived in this happy place a whole year.  Joe is the best and kindest of grooms.  My work is easy and pleasant, and I feel my strength and spirits all coming back again.” -Beauty

The quote shows a time when he wasn’t mistreated, and he had a happy life.  In Black Beauty, Anna Sewell uses the time when Rueben Smith ruined Beauty’s knees as an example of how it isn’t good to drink too much alcohol.  Rueben got drunk, and drove Beauty to run hard and travel recklessly.  Rueben lost his life, and Beauty was injured.  Sewell wrote this book to show people how to care for horses properly, without mistreating them. The book helped people realize how horses feel when they’re mistreated.
