Book Review - The Red Siren

The Red Siren by MaryLu Tyndall
To save her sisters from unwanted marriages Faith decides to embark on a dangerous life of pirating. If she amasses enough money her father will let her and her sisters choose their our mates and this is exactly what Faith plans to do. But when Mr Waite is appointed as their guardian while their father is away Faith's views on life, and love, start to change. Will she leave behind her love of the sea to pursue a different love or will her illegal ways catch up to her?

I love all of Ms Tyndall's books and this one is no exception. Full of drama and plot twists it keeps you guessing the plot until the very end!

Quick Tips for Summer Outfits

Tip #1 - Look for a high necked dress with a scooped neckline so that it doesn't feel too much like a turtleneck but it's totally chique. 
Tip #2 - Mint is the colour to wear right now. Pair it with pink and tan for a feminine outfit.
Tip #3 - Add a thin belt to any dress (or outfit for that matter) to create shape. Wear it at the smallest part of your waist for a sliming effect.
Tip #4 - High and low skirts are super popular right now. Find one in a bright hue and pair it with a white tank for an easy summer outfit.
Tip #5 - Bring an outfit together with a matching, light-weight scarf. Perfect for a cool summer day or chilly summer night.
Tip #6 - Want to make your legs look like they go forever? Try a pair of nude heels! And if you go for strappy sandals, less straps is more for a longer legged look.

Tuesday Thoughts

For the Lord will not
    cast off forever,
but, though he cause grief, he will have compassion
     according to the abundance of his steadfast love; 
 for he does not afflict from his heart
    or grieve the children of men.
~ Lamentations 3:31-33

God doesn't want to make us hurt but He does use the hurts to shape us into the people He wants us to become. He has amazing plans for us. Just because what's happening right now doesn't have a happy ending doesn't mean that a happy ending won't come.
