    The Shop Around The Corner With The Beauty Library

    One of the reasons I chose the name Probably at the Library is that, to me, it gives a feeling of wanting to learn. A library is a place of empowering yourself with limitless knowledge. Since my early thirties, I have been interested in learning more about clean beauty. When my mom was diagnosed with cancer, I became hyper-aware of what ingredients were going in and on my body. It was while I was making a change to clean beauty that I realized you don’t need to sacrifice results with more natural ingredients. In fact, my skin is happier than it has ever been. One day on Instagram, I stumbled…

    A Lady’s Guide To Mischief And Murder

    It’s no surprise that I’m pretty dedicated to reading historical romance, but I was feeling like I needed to shake things up a bit this summer. What better way to do that than with… a murder! Growing up my mom was a dedicated Murder She Wrote and Masterpiece Mystery fan. I remember laying in bed with the lights out, only able to faintly hear the tv in the living room. The swaying shadows on my bedroom wall from the trees outside, moaning sound effects from the show faintly making their way down the hall, and my very vivid nine-year-old imagination always got the best of me. (Seriously, those howling wind…

    Somehow this summer feels like it is flying by and yet I never have a clue what day it is. Anyone else feeling the same? This week we took a little trip up to Michigan to visit family which is always so much fun. My mom’s garden is looking fantastic and we were even able to grab a few black raspberries before the birds ate them all. It was a busy week here on the blog. I was lucky enough to kick off the blog tour for Paullett Golden’s new novel A Dash of Romance. I also joined the blog tour for Mimi Mathew’s new novella As Fair As A…

    June 2020 Reading Recap

    June is my favorite month of the year. It’s mine and my husband’s birthday month and it’s our anniversary. So much celebrating! Despite still mostly staying at home, it was a great month. I was able to read twelve books this month and for the most part, they were all amazing reads! I noticed an interesting pattern with my reading this month. I had a few new (to me) authors that I started reading. I was so hooked after reading one book from each of them that I binge read quite a few of their other books. Do you ever get on reading kicks like that? This month, I read…
