Mamapop Recommends: Lena's Picks for August

Mprecs_2

Recommended Book - Waiting For Daisy - I'm a sucker for an infertility war story. Gripping and bittersweet, this book follows Peggy Orenstein's six year quest to have a child. "A tale of two continents, three religions, five infertility doctors, an Oscar, and her ultimate success in becoming a mother." 'Tis a quick read, yet a wild ride, and I guarantee you will not be able to put this book down. I may have actually picked it up Saturday morning with every intention of unloading the dishwasher and then, hello dinnertime! Maybe.

TV Show - Dexter - Why am I not hearing more buzz about this fantastically delicious Showtime show? Dexter is a forensic expert for the Miami police department, Homicide division. Oh, and he's also a serial killer. Two things you should know, though: 1) you will feel no remorse for his victims 2) you will probably very likely develop a crush on Dexter. Maybe even staring at the cover of your new DVD set and admiring his hotness before going to bed. Maybe.

Movie - Hairspray - Am I the last person in the universe to see this? I have no idea if this is a stale recommendation since I've been living under a rock lately (Pop Culture Expert indeed!), but this movie is hilarious. Newcomer Nikki Blonsky is adorable and while I was ready to be annoyed by John Travolta playing her mother, he was so hilarious, I was spitting nachos. Also, Michelle Pfeiffer must be dabbling in the black magic because girlfriend does not age.

Rocktastic Other Thing - Benefit's Eye Bright - BUT, hold on to your hats. It isn't just for your eyes! I (accidentally) discovered that this stuff works amazingly for those lines and shadows around your nose. Just feather a few lines around your nose, blend out, and goodbye five years! Am hugging it.
