Haha that title caught your interest, right? Well I have two reviews for you today: one for a book and one for a bra. Let’s start with the bra!

I was contacted by a representative from Leonisa, which is an undergarment company that I was unfamiliar with. After looking through their site, I decided to try out their Slimming Strapless Push Up Bra, since I was in need of a new strapless bra. The reason I chose this one was because of the thick band on the sides and back of the bra.

My number one pet peeve with strapless bras is that I always seem to be pulling them up throughout the day, readjusting it and keeping it from slipping down. What I loved about this bra is that I never messed with it! The wider band seemed to really help in keeping it up. It also comes with straps that you can add on if you want to.

The one thing I didn’t like about the bra is that for some reason I’d assumed it was padded. Being someone with a smaller chest, I much prefer padded strapless bras and despite the bra being described as “push up” there wasn’t any padding. Otherwise, I really like this bra and recommend checking out their website. They have a lot of different options and are all really reasonably priced, similar or less than Victoria’s Secret, which is where I’d normally shop.


Now on to the book! I have a pile of books in my apartment that I’ve been meaning to get through, and several were lent to me from Chelsey! I picked one at random and was so glad that I did, I really enjoyed it!

Between Shades of Gray by Ruta Sepetys follows the story of fifteen year old Lina, a young Lithuanian girl preparing to go away for art school and enjoying her summer. However, one evening the Soviet secret police came to her home and took her, her brother and mother away on a train, separating them from their father and sending them, after months cramped in a train car, to a prison camp in the middle of Siberia (no joke…).

Lina used the little time and resources she had to continue to draw and write, documenting their experience so that one day their story could be told, as well as in hopes of finding their father.

When I first read the book description I almost put it back, thinking I wasn’t in the mood for a historical book. The thing about this novel, however, is that it doesn’t feel like a historical novel. Yes, I was learning about an entire part of history that I had no knowledge of previously, but it felt like I was just reading this girl’s story. I finished the book in just two days because I just couldn’t put it down, staying up fairly late one evening because I just HAD to know what happened!

As much as it is about history, this novel is really about family, love and human compassion. Not something you’d imagine when the story is centered around a prison camp for innocent women, children and elderly, but it shows how some people can become the best version of themselves when put in the most difficult of situations. I definitely recommend picking up this book!


Do you like historical novels?

Where do you shop for undergarments? Anyone else just always go to Victoria’s Secret?
