Awhile back I had read this silly term called a ‘book hangover’..I didn’t even get what it meant, and it sounded kind of nerdy to me. I pretty much just brushed it off with a laugh.

That is, until I started and finished The Fixed Trilogyin 48 hours this past weekend. I mean it, I could not put it down. I stayed up way to late Friday and Saturday, and got a ridiculous sunburn from just sitting outside reading all day. But holy moly, was it all worth it.

The set was $0.99 on Amazon for the Kindle, which is pretty much why I bought it to begin with. But within reading the first few pages, I was hooked. And I couldn’t stop at all..I even had dreams about the characters in the books when I finally did get some sleep. I know.

It was hot, and full of angst, love, deceit, lies, passion, manipulation, hate, romance, suspense, games..it was a page turner. I was expecting it to be like 50 Shades of Gray, but just no. I’m a huuuuge fan of that series, and in my opinion, this one blows that one out of the water. The Fixed Trilogy has so much more to it..the storyline is addicting and I just couldn’t get enough.

My original point? A book hangover, I finally totally get it. Although the series finished well, I was sooo bummed that it did end. I just wanted it to keep going and going. Thankfullly, there is a fourth book coming out in July, from the male characters point of view. I’ve already pre-ordered it and plan on re-reading the series right before it gets delivered to my kindle app. love love love.

So yah, you should read it. If you’re on goodreads, here is my Full Review. I can’t say enough great things. I wish that would make that one into a movie.

The muffins, though they’re not the prettiest, they are fantastic! They’re complete perfection when warmed up just slightly right before inhaling one. And they are excellent with your coffee for breakfast, or as a late night snack. Trust me on that one!

They’re made entirely with whole wheat flour, and I tried to keep that as light as I could so we don’t feel tooo guilty! Regardless, they’re light, airy, moist, so full of chocolate, and pretty addicting. We polished them off pretty quickly!

Something I hardly ever do..take my makeup off before I go to bed. I can hear the silent gasps coming from all of you. I know, I know. I have a million excuses, but none of them realllly matter, right?

Everything I read, everywhere, say it’s the biggest faux pas.. but here’s the thing, not to be all snooty, but I’ve never had any issues with my skin. I’ve always been incredibly lucky. I’ve never had acne, or an oily face, or a dry face, or any issues at all. So I kind of got lazy about it.

I know it has more to do than good or bad skin, like age and wrinkles and the future of my face, and aging and all that, buuuut that still doesn’t help my exhaustion before bed.

Honestly, sometimes by the time I’m ready to lay my head down, I have to muster up all the energy just to brush my teeth every night, let alone wash, scrub and moisturize my face. Plus I looooaaathe removing my mascara..what a messy, annoying process.

The sad part of all of this is, that on the nights that I actually do take it all off, they’re few and far between, I actually feel so much better. Even when I wake up, my skin feels like it’s breathing and clean! What a concept, I know.

Apparently it’s not enough motivation to keep removing it all every night though.

I know that makeup has nothing to do with this incredible burger, but I love makeup and clothes. It’s another huge passion of mine, so sometimes I like talking about it. Okay.

This Jerk Turkey Burger is full of flavor, texture, and is pretty healthy! The ground turkey is seasoned with lots of jerk seasoning and some fresh apple to keep it moist. Then the burger is cooked and smeared with a creamy feta, and topped with a crunchy, tangy, mango-apple slaw!

I love the slaw on this burger..it’s complete perfection. I made a second batch and ate it all week as a snack or as a side to another meal. It has so much flavor and crunch!

The combination of all of these things with this jerk burger is over the top! You won’t be disappointed.
