Reviewed! Star Girl by Jerry Spinelli


It was one of those random trips at the bookstore when I first encountered Star Girl. Truth to be told, I only got attracted with minimalistic yet intriguing cover. Despite the interesting story, I wasn't keen on buying the book. Save for the few good reviews I read, I remembered it when I saw the last copy from National Bookstore's first Book Binge Bazaar. I got it for almost half of its retail price.

Why Skin Wrinkles

source


Everyone wrinkles eventually as they progress through a normal lifespan. It’s been said that nothing is inevitable except for death and taxes, but wrinkles might well be added to that short list, too. And, naturally, the place where wrinkles are most obvious is right on our face. Heredity does play a role in whether your face will be only lightly touched by wrinkles, or whether you will wind up looking like a relief map of the Badlands. However, heredity is not necessarily the last word as pertains to wrinkles, and many wrinkles can be avoided if you take care of your skin while you are still young.

Beautiful Sunday # 320 - Halfway June

I'm typing this post after a sumptuous father's day dinner with my family. We opted for Filipino-Chinese food and had it delivered in the comforts of our home. I will never get tired of weekends like this. My family is not the hardest to please, even a bag of popcorn and ice cold Coke will do.

The past week was probably the longest unexpected break I had this year. It all started with the two national holidays and the series of class suspensions. I spent the rest of the week working at home. The colder weather has been conducive both for working and sleeping. But as always, sleeping is the easier option. Situations like this make me always dream of working at home. For some reason, I feel more productive and get my working pace on the wee hours of the morning. Maybe because no one distracts me at 1 am, except for a hungry stomach. It's also easier to resist food temptations because food deliveries are not available. (and please don't give an idea where to get food from midnight till dawn)

Other than the colder weather, I can't seem to remember anything significant last week. Save for a few accomplishments, a freelance work and a major report from my day job. I was able to watch Ocean's 8 with my friend A. I enjoyed the film, even if reviews don't seem to agree. I've always been a fan of Sandra Bullock and Anne Hathaway. I was also entertained with the cameo appearances of Katie Holmes, Serena Williams, Kim Kardashian and Anna Wintour.

Here's more from the past week in photos


And I was able to finish my second book for this year :p - I'm far from my usual target of one book every month. These days, much of my spare time is spent sleeping or checking my social media accounts. Halfway 2018, I only managed to finish two books. :p I really wish I could read more.
