When Ashley and I decided to go to LeakyCon’s 10th anniversary, we also decided that we wanted to style each other for one of the days. We had seen tons of videos on Buzzfeed or Safiya Nygaard’s channels, so we tried it out. Let me tell you, Ashley was so much better at this than I was, but we’ll get into that in a bit. Since this was for Leaky, we went to our Hogwarts houses for inspiration.
Ok, I believe that everyone should be allowed to watch whatever the heck they want. But I wanted to share a couple of the channels I have been living for recently. These are all over the place, and some of them are not necessarily for all ages (I’ll be sure to let you know which those are). Here are some suggestions that I find hilarious, informative, or just a good time.
I received this book as a part of my March Unplugged box and took way too long to read it! But now that I’ve read it, I want to recommend it to everyone who is willing to listen; this book is incredible.
Warrior of the Wild is about a young warrior named Rasmira, who is set to become an adult and the leader of her tribe. But when her trial is sabatogged, she is banished and sent to the Wild with an impossible task: killing a god.
While in the Wild, Rasmira meets a couple other folks who have been banished, and they all learn to work better and harder towards their impossible tasks. They become tolerant of each other; teaching and helping each other to get closer to their goals.
This book is incredible. I absolutely loved everything about it, and was screaming it’s praise before i was even halfway done. Warrior of the Wild is beautifully written, Stars a powerful female main character, and is just So Good.
I do have a bit of a complaint. As much as I adored all of this book, I really would have enjoyed having the ending fleshed out more. I understand the ending, but I feel like a little more time could have been put into it. That being said, i still loved every word and paragraph.
This book is just rad. There’s no way to explain it other than that; I love this book. It was easily one of my favorite reads of 2019, and I’m so grateful to Unplugged for it coming into my life!
While I would love to say that I practice self love every day, it’s something I struggle with. But the absolutely incredible Amanda Swiger had an event la couple weeks back, titled Self Love Saturday, and I had the pleasure of attending!
