It’s all about the next best thriller!

Ive become a bit addicted to thrillers! Nothing too scary, mind you, but since reading both the popular titles, Gone Girl by Gillian Flynn, and The Girl on the Train by Paula Hawkins, my Chick Lit obsession has taken a slight backseat.  And what perfect timing than jetting off to a sun bed somewhere where the sun is shining to get my next thriller fix! Here’s what’s on my current reading list. The

I never thought that I would be the type of person to have a meaningfulness journal! But then, what type of person is that right? I have no idea! I guess I AM that type of person.

My Little Wish Box

At the beginning of the year when I started planning my January posts, I made a decision that not every beauty box would be reviewed on mrsjonasrecommends.com but only THE best beauty boxes that were bringing something to the table. So with the aim to keep January all about wellness, beauty and general positive vibes, I wasn’t expecting to be featuring any for the month of January. But then my

Sunday thoughts contemplating those life goals!

Happy Sunday! As the first week of January comes to a close I was starting to feel a bit conscious that I was totally avoiding writing that obligatory ‘2015 review’ or ‘goals review’ post. So, on my first ‘I have no plans Sunday’ of the year (hopefully with many more to come), I’m feeling wide awake and refreshed – just the perfect time of day to reflect on 2015 and
