Summary

Eco-friendly, homemade beauty recipes from the teen sisterpreneurs™ and founders of the multimillion-dollar company Da Bomb® Bath Fizzers. 
 
Tired of endlessly searching for safe and natural makeup lines free of harsh, chemical-laden ingredients, Caroline and Isabel decided to create their own natural makeup line. Good Clean Beauty includes their thoroughly researched recipes, perfect for those looking for natural and clean alternatives. Using only natural ingredients such as cocoa butter, almond oil, essential oils, and oats, you'll know exactly what you're putting onto your face and body. If you have allergiesor sensitive skin, you'll appreciate and benefit from the non-toxic makeup ingredients. 
 
Divided into five parts—hair, body, makeup, eye shadows, and skin care—each section utilizes common items readily available in the kitchen and bathroom that make luxurious scrubs, effective exfoliators, revitalizing face masks, long-lasting foundation, bright eye shadows, shiny lip glosses, and soothing lotions. Also included are tips and tricks of applying makeup, such as foundation, blush, lipstick, and eye shadow, as well as modifications to each recipe. Each ingredient is presented with a short overview of its natural properties and a full explanation on its use and application so that you can learn the healing and therapeutic properties of the ingredients, such as charcoal, arrowroot powder, and nutmeg. 
 
Whether you're looking for a resource for spa party or sleepover activities, or creative projects for yourself, Good Clean Beauty has it covered. 
 
"A practical, effective, comprehensive, and thoroughly ‘user friendly' instructional guide and manual for women wanting a healthy and eco-friendly approach to their personal hygiene and grooming." ―Midwest Book Review

    A new look is emerging in France’s apartments as well as its imposing chateaux and country manors.

    The opinions expressed are not necessarily those of anyone involved in the production of this book, and are not the views of LibriVox.Dale Ahlquist calls the book a "philosophical travelogue" of Chesterton's journey across Europe to Palestine. "On the road to Cairo one may see twenty groups exactly like that of the Holy Family in the pictures of the Flight into Egypt; with only one difference. The man is riding on the ass."  
     
    "The real mistake of the Muslims is something much more modern in its application than any particular passing persecution of Christians as such. It lay in the very fact that they did think they had a simpler and saner sort of Christianity, as do many modern Christians. They thought it could be made universal merely by being made uninteresting. Now a man preaching what he thinks is a platitude is far more intolerant than a man preaching what he admits is a paradox. It was exactly because it seemed self-evident, to Muslims as to Bolshevists, that their simple creed was suited to everybody, that they wished in that particular sweeping fashion to impose it on everybody."

    For the average cook ready to take on the challenge, The Meat Hook Meat Book is the perfect guide: equal parts cookbook and butchering handbook. Start by cutting up a chicken, and soon you’ll be breaking down an entire pig, creating your own custom burger blends, and throwing a legendary barbecue. 
     
    The Meat Hook Meat Book features more than 60 recipes, plus hundreds of photographs and clever illustrations. With stories that capture the Meat Hook experience, even those who haven’t shopped there will become fans.

    A hunting Osprey is one of the great sights of the natural world, and its fishing prowess is admired and revered around the globe. However, its penchant for taking fish from trout ponds resulted in a drastic decline in the UK with the species wiped out by human persecution and habitat loss. 
     
    Thanks to concerted conservation efforts, it has made an encouraging comeback in recent decades, giving people across the country the chance to see this majestic hunter in action once again. This easy-to-read text explores all aspects of the Osprey's biology and ecology, including a detailed overview of the adaptations that make it such a skilled and proficient hunter. There is also a chapter dedicated to Osprey migration with a summary of the findings of groundbreaking satellite tracking research. Tim Mackrill also explores the relationship between humans and Ospreys, from the days of Shakespeare to the recent rise of Osprey tourism. 
     
    The Spotlight series introduces readers to the lives and behaviour of our favourite animals with eye-catching colour photographs and informative expert text.

    Dispatches Volume One - What Men...

    Laugh-out-loud observations from “America’s foremost humorist” (Chicago Tribune).  What Men Don’t Tell Women: Well, that’s just for starters. Roy Blount Jr. realized that nearly all of his writing involved things people don’t tell people: what Southerners don’t tell Northerners, what the sick don’t want to hear from the well, what no one would ever tell their mother, and what authors rarely admit to their readers. That all changes in this “honest . . . funny” collection of confessional essays about sex, friendship, marriage, male bonding, female patience, and Elvis (The Boston Globe).  One Fell Soup: A deliciously funny stew of reviews, diatribes, investigations, meditations, assorted grumblings, and verse about the absurdities of American life, death, fears, and ambition. Included in these fifty-nine easy pieces: the truth (as Blount sees it) about nudism, cricket-fighting, bowling, macaroni and cheese, black holes and black socks, nuclear holocausts, the CIA, domesticated fowl, pork bellies, God, and more. The whole shebang from “one of the most clever (see sly, witty, cunning, nimble) wordsmiths cavorting in the English language” (Carl Hiaasen).  Camels Are Easy, Comedy’s Hard: Flesh-eating piranha! Synchronized swimming! Rubber chickens! Edith Wharton! Crossword puzzles! All and then some in this giddy compendium of essays, celebrity profiles, silly games, and side trips. Parts sports journalism, literary criticism, travel writing, and aborted novel, tossed with a few poems and a neo-Biblical one-act play, this is an uproarious—and sometimes heartening—anthology of adventures from “one writer who never fails to please” (The Village Voice).
