Taco El Gato is by Candy Briones and this is the first book in the series. Taco is a cat who was abandoned and then rescued by dogs. He has a “brother” and the brother isn’t too fond of him, or cats. Taco is chill about this rivalry, but I’m pretty sure something more will happen in later issues. Overall this is a cute comic to start, but I do wish a little more explanation of characters had happened. But I do look forward to reading some more about Taco and his friends/family.

Review/Booktalk: While, I’m a little too young to remember The Twilight Zone on TV, I have watched a few episodes here and there and also am a fan of the Twilight Zone Tower of Terror Ride at the Disney parks, I wasn’t fully expecting the comic to be engaging and yet slightly creepy.
This compliation has multiple stories in it, and each are short and to the point. Which while great for the art of comics, I found myself wishing for a couple of the stories to be longer.
The artwork and lettering were fabulous, and I do hope more of these come out.
So I ask you now, are you here in the present or are you in another dimension known as The Twilight Zone?
Hey long time no blog! I’m participating in the JingleVoxBox from Influenster, and I got some products to try and review for free. One of those products was the Cetaphil moisturizing cream.
While I’m more of a Beekman 1802 lotion girl, this Cetaphil cream didn’t feel greasy and did help some dry spots. I also enjoyed the fact that it was scent free and didn’t bother me.
Overall, I’d recommend it to someone who is looking for something to help with their winter dry skin and I’ll most likely keep using it as a backup lotion as well.
What did I get this time around from Influenster you ask? Well I received Airbrush Legs from Sally Hansen. I know there’s supposed to be lots of pictures, but I received the “light” color to try out. Well I thought the light color was going to be OK for my legs, then I realized how pale my legs are. When I applied the leg make up on, my legs kind of resembled the oompa loompa from Willy Wonka and I’m not posting that🙂
Overall, the product applied smooth, and set out what it was made to do, cover up issues. I did find that even though it was supposed to be easy wash off, it took some scrubbing to get the make up off the next day.
So how did I apply it?
- I squeezed a small amount (less than dime size) into my hand.
- I worked the amount into a small area on my legs.
- I blended to get an even finish.
- Then I repeated for the rest of my legs, until I got an even tone.
While I got this for free, I probably would have chosen the lightest shade they offer for myself to make sure my legs looked more natural. Also it’s great for people who wear clothes that show off their legs, and that is something I just don’t do.
So yes, I give it a recommendation but make sure you know which color works for your skin tone.

The ever famous Uncle Scrooge is back at his money hogging ways in this series of comics. There’s a group of robbers who keep trying to steal his money, and hilariously fail. Donald and the nephews go on wild adventures with their uncle. If you like Disney and you like Uncle Scrooge stories, Pure Viewing Satisfaction will be enjoyable for you. The artwork in Disney comics is always beautiful and detailed. A great children’s comic.

I received this book as an ARC from NetGalley.
In looking through my blog, I saw my old states I’ve visited map. I’ve now added Indiana to that list, and have updated the map accordingly.
So 28/50, I really need to get westward don’t I?
A general housekeeping posts. Please don’t comment on old posts. Seriously. It just makes you look like you are trolling for something. I barely remember what I had for lunch today let alone what I wrote 3 years ago.
Most likely going to add this into my disclaimer or about me page as well.
