Intergalactic Bath Bomb from Lush Cosmetics

As we are all aware, bath season is quickly approaching. Luckily enough, we keep the apartment cold enough for baths to be comfortable ALL THE DAYS, so ya girl can take a bath even when it’s Too Hot Out (which apparently is pretty common in MD). I had the immense pleasure of going into Lush with my friend Sam for her first time, and I grabbed myself a new bath bomb that I hadn’t tried yet; Intergalactic.

Attachments by Rainbow Rowell

Fangirls, I’ve read four of Rowell’s books before, and I enjoyed all of them. This book was definitely aimed at an older audience (which is fine by me; I’m not really the Young Adult target audience, even if I enjoy those books). It’s based in 1999, with the worry of Y2K very present. But that’s not the main focus.

Nerds Gotta Eat: Zucchini Bread

Alright Fangirls, lets talk about this super tasty bread. When I last saw Rob’s parents, it was at a dinner specifically so I could meet his maternal grandparents (and uncle). His mother created a magnificent spread of food, and made us some Zucchini Loaf for dessert. Being (possibly) the pickiest eater on the planet, I was not super about the idea of eating anything zucchini because I’m usually not a fan of it. I was assured that this would change my mind, and as skeptical as I was, I tried it. It was incredibly delicious, and I’ve now made it twice on my own (which is also my first time making bread), with a zucchini from Rob’s mother’s garden!

Battling Boy Book One by Paul Pope

First up, can we just appreciate all that alliteration? Okay, thanks. Awhile back, the boy and I went to our friends Marty & Sam’s apartment. There, we had a lovely evening playing Cards Against Humanity and hanging out. Since they know our roommates are leaving soon and we don’t have a ton of stuff, they graciously have us some helpful kitchen items (pie plates, aprons, etc) along with a slew of books. They gave us things that they were planning on donating, so they didn’t take much of a loss because of it. But we grabbed a ton of their stuff because “free books” is my favorite phrase, and I didn’t have my own pie plate. One of the books we got was Battling Boy, and it was the first of the comics from them that we received. I blindly reached into the trunk one night for a book to read, and out it came.

Nerds Gotta Eat: Cinna-Yums

First of all, I need you all to know that I did not come up with this name. It’s a bit too much for me, but so is the name of the book (From Junk Food to Joy Food). But no matter how silly the name is, these little cinnamon roll substitutions were¬†phenomenal and I’m already gearing up to make a second batch (and maybe turn them into tiny muffins this time)!
