On Beauty Q&A: Nails 101

You guys know you can rescue broken eyeshadow by turning it into nail polish? Just dump whatever combination you like into clear nail polish and mix it up. It comes out matte, but gets shiny with a topcoat.

I loved Island of the Blue Dolphin SO MUCH as a kid. I should re-read it.

On Really Good Books About Real Murder

For some reason my favorite true crime is Victorian-era. I'm reading Broadmoor Revealed: Victorian Crime and the Lunatic Asylum at the moment. It's not bad, a little slow and scattered, but a good sampling of stories.

On Really Good Books About Real Murder

@yeah-elle I found the case really interesting, but the book less so. It's like the author never really picked a side to be on, which makes it hard to finish. And she left out all the interesting stuff that happened after.

On Really Good Books About Fake Murder

Yay, new things to read!

I'm so stoked for real murder book recs. True crime is so often really badly written (and also bad to commit, obviously). Although I must give mad love to "The Great Train Robbery" by Michael Crichton, which is mostly about robbery but kind of about murders and is 100% awesome (again, the writing, not the crime-ing).
