The Iron Fey Series

This series was a lot of fun for me! The creation and depiction of the new clan of fey, The Iron Fey, was so inventive and riveting that I couldn't get enough of this series. These books were fun to read and I definitely recommend them! 

The Iron King (The Iron Fey, #1)The Iron King by Julie Kagawa
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

I really enjoyed this book. It kept me entertained from the beginning. I am glad that all the books are out and I have them cause this book ended with a good cliffhanger!

 The Iron Daughter (The Iron Fey, #2)The Iron Daughter by Julie Kagawa
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Really liked this book. I found myself crying through the first 7 chapters or so (may have been do to hormones :)). There was a lot of action in this book but I did find some spots to be a touch slow. Love how it ended and CAN'T wait to see what happens next!

 The Iron Queen (The Iron Fey, #3)The Iron Queen by Julie Kagawa
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

I enjoyed this book but did find a few parts slow. I did find myself getting thorough this series that every time Meghan and Ash did get a moment alone they were always interrupted. I did totally cry towards the end...poor Ash.

 The Iron Knight (Iron Fey, #4)The Iron Knight by Julie Kagawa
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

This had a lot of slow spots and I felt like it was dragged on too much. I did like it though and at first I was not happy about Ariella but it all worked out in the end!

WIWW- Racerback Tank

Cardigan- Target
Racerback tank- Target
White tank- Downeast
Capris- Buckle
Toms- Nordstrom 

I love the style of the racerback tanks. They can be casual and also dressed up and I like to wear a little cardigan over the top of mine. They are comfortable while still being cute! Then there are my Toms, I swear I have worn them most of the summer cause they are comfy and easy to throw on...they have become my "go to" shoes.

Strawberries & Cream Crescents

Strawberry shortcake is my all time favorite dessert! Our family makes Strawberry shortcake a lot in the summer! I found these crescents by chance one day when I was with my daughter. We had stopped at Day's Market, which is a local grocery store in Heber City and there is also one in Orem City. Sydney wanted a doughnut and I looked over and saw these bad boys and had to try one. These are just like having an individual Strawberry shortcake! It was so delicious and I find myself craving them all the time. I am going to try to make these myself at home one of these days and see if I can get it right. 

 So, if you are ever close to a Day's Market you should stop in and try one!
