Marvel fans got a surprise recently as the first Captain America Civil War trailer was released. It debuted on Jimmy Kimmel Live when Robert Downey Jr and Chris Evans appeared together. I apparently couldn’t stay up, try as I might, but I caught it a couple times the next morning. But Marvel wasn’t done at the trailer; they released three posters as well.

As I’m sure you’ve noticed, Fangirls, I love me some Pokemon. They are my children and my friends, and I love both catching and collecting them. Awhile back, the Nintendo representative came to the store that I work at, and was telling me about a new game that was coming out; Yo-Kai Watch. A new Pokemon-esque game for the 3DS, where you find and befriend spirits throughout your little town. I was enamored with the idea, and couldn’t wait for November 6th to come, so I could get my copy.

I don’t think I’m ever not going to be into baths. I love sliding into a nice hot dip and just letting all of my bothers disappear into the water. The other day I was feeling far from my best, so I threw some grocery store bath salts into the tub, and took a soak. I didn’t expect much from the salts, as I’ve become a stuck up jerk when it comes to my baths. But you know what? This was amazing.

True confessions: I am not a Christmas person. Nope, Halloween is my holiday! It’s not that I don’t enjoy ‘the most wonderful time of the year’, there are genuinely some aspects of the holiday season that I love: homemade butter cookies we make with my Great Grandma’s antique cookie press, hot chocolate in front of a fire, decorating a big bushy pine tree, hanging out with my siblings… Making my dog wear adorable sweaters! (Cute dog+cute sweater is like my kryptonite!) But when they start putting Christmas items in stores before October has even begun and airing commercials for Christmas sales it kinda makes me wish I was a necromancer or mad evil scientist so I could unleash the zombie apocalypse the day after Thanksgiving on all the insane ‘Black Friday’ shoppers. I despise how commercial Christmas is, and hordes of holiday shoppers are practically zombies already… Yes, I know, it’s practically Grinchy! (Maybe if I put Santa hats on all the zombies?) If it was left up to me, I’d totally skip the nightmare of holiday shopping and I’d stay home enjoying a big cup of tequila spiked hot cocoa (add a pinch of cayenne for an adult version of Mexican hot chocolate!) and binge watch every Christmas horror movie ever made, starting with that perennial favorite, “Silent Night, Deadly Night.”

Fangirls, everything is Steven Universe, and
nothing everything hurts. This show has taken over many aspects of my life; I talk about it constantly with my boy, I watch it all the time, I read the first volume of the comic, I’ve made food based on it, and now I’ve read a guide for it. I can’t get enough information on the gems, and I just want to soak it all up.

Welcome back, friends! Can you feel it? Can you feel the neon blood pumping through your veins? Is that just me? Hm. Well, either way, we’re back for another recap of my favorite comic based on a cartoon of all time- Jem and the Holograms!

Happy Thanksgiving, Fangirls! Today I’d like to give thanks for my amazing family, phenomenal friends, and rad as heck boyfriend. A little while back, I had the pleasure of meeting said boyfriend’s parents, and I got super freaked out because first impressions are so important, and I can never visit someone empty handed. My go-to for first visit gifts tends to be food, but his mother is gluten free, and he is allergic to everything under the sun! I originally tried making gluten free Pizzelles, but that was a disaster and a half, so I went to Lauren Lopez’s These Treats Don’t Suck. In it, Ms Lopez writes about how she has a princess tummy that doesn’t like gluten or dairy, so I figured it may be a good place to start. I was incredibly right. Lopez had a ton of recipes in there, but most had chocolate or nuts (allergy king would not be able to eat those). Luckily, there is a recipe for Sassy Pumpkin Muffins that was free of nuts, chocolate, and gluten (heck, there’s no dairy either)!
