I was lucky enough to finally get my hands on a copy of The Strain: Book One of The Strain Trilogy by Guillermo Del Toro and Chuck Hogan (my review copy never came for some reason) and I read it in two days flat. It was a great read, the kind you don’t want to end – I cannot wait for Book Two. I finished it right before the meteor shower, which made me a little creeped out – but you’ll understand once you finished.
I was delighted to find how much of New York is covered in the action-packed book – from Spanish Harlem to Ground Zero – The Strain is a tour de force.

I recently bought Sally Hansen Cooling Foot Spray because a long time ago I fell for the sensation of cool tingly feet after trying my best friend’s Kiss My Face peppermint foot cream.
This spray has multi vitamins and Tea Tree Oil and smells delightful. It’s not only refreshing and antiseptic but also repels mosquitos. I’ve taken to spraying it all over my legs, especially on a sweltering day like today (it’s 92 degrees today in NYC) but be warned it might sting a bit if you are freshly shaved.
