Five on Friday - November 26, 2021 ~ The Last Legacy Book Review, Decorating for Christmas, Meeting Santa, Joe Fresh x Roxy Earle, and Sephora Birthday Gift

Happy Friday everyone! I hope you all have a good week - we had a fun week, decorated for Christmas, met Santa, and are in full holiday mode!

Welcome back to the Unnamed Sea and the island of Bastian in The Last Legacy by Adrienne Young! This is a standalone novel that is set in the same world as the Fable & Namesake duology - I would certainly recommend those first to help establish what this world is really like (and establish some events that occurred before this novel takes place). I've already reviewed the duology, so make sure you check that out if you are interested in high stakes sea adventures, with gems, and found families! 

But, this one takes places firmly on land of one of the islands - our main character Bryn Roth is summoned back to Bastian on her 18th birthday to take her place amongst her family who is a "mafia-style" family running a fake gem trade, and a ruthless in getting what they want. Bryn is sucked in to their world, but also doesn't just want to be a pawn in their games - she wants to make her own path. There is also a mysterious silversmith working for the family and I enjoy this enemies to lovers slow-burn romance and I just really loved the storyline! I wish this was a *tad* longer or hope we eventually get a follow-up, because I want to see more of these two! 

This books focuses on breaking tradition, defying expectation, making your own fate, and taking back your power! This was a 5 star read for me - I devoured it! 


Real trees came out this past weekend and we decorated for Christmas! We love getting set up for the holidays and decorating the tree! We had so much fun decorating, listening to Christmas music, drinking hot chocolate, and having a fun day! Loved it! 


After we got all decorated for Christmas, we met Santa this week! We use the Calgary Ultimate Santa and they are amazing! Elliott was so excited, he woke up early and was yelling about meeting Santa all day! He asked for a Dr. Zombot and Dr. Zomboss because he is obsessed with Plants vs. Zombies and talked about cookies and The North Pole - it was amazing! 


Joe Fresh came out with a collection with Roxy Earle and they had some really cute stuff - I picked up this Wrap Tie Cardi and it's so pretty! There was also a sequin skirt that I had my eye on, but it was sold out! Very pretty! 


And, my birthday is this month, so I placed an order during the VIB sale, and got my birthday set - I chose the Laneige set because these are all good products and will get used! 

I hope you all have a great weekend!
