Fangirl Fashions: Period Panties by Harebrained

Alright friends and Fangirls, we’re going to get personal very quickly today, as we’re diving right into a conversation about periods (maybe “dive” wasn’t the best word choice. Oh well). Periods can suck, because often you’re tired, you’re in pain, and sometimes you end up ruining your favorite undies. It’s the worst; nobody wants to think “oh it’s over” and then find the last remains of your happiness spotting your favorite undies. Nope. So when I was told about Harebrained’s Period Panties (by my friend Colleen, who is hilarious and perfect), I was intrigued. Then I saw the designs, and was delighted.

Something New by Lucy Knisley

Fangirls, Lucy Knisley seems like a damn rad lady. I was introduced to her work by Natalie, who wrote here for a spell. Natalie showed me French Milk, one of Knisley’s old books, about living (and eating) in France. It’s beautiful and poignant. Plus I have instant respect for creators who write and illustrate their own work. Knisley’s book, Something New, is about her relationship with her friend and on-and-off-boyfriend (now husband). It shows their relationship from the beginning through their honeymoon (which they took 5 months after the wedding). It’s a neat story, and a great way to catalogue memories.

Appdicted: Charity Miles

charitymiles1Fangirls, I’m torn up about this app. On one hand, it’s phenomenal. On the other, it doesn’t work super well with indoor movement, and that’s tough. But lets get to the down and dirty of Charity Miles.

5Wits Puzzle Rooms

I live near Albany NY, and we just got a new area in one of our malls called 5Wits. I’d never heard of it before, but when they advertise things called “Drago’s Castle,” “Deep Space,” and “Tomb,” I knew it had to be interesting. And I was not wrong.

A-Force #8-10

I am so so behind on my comic reading. I took a night a while back to start to catch up, and I discovered something: A-Force has ended. Yes, the last three issues we’ll be discussing here are the final three issues for my favorite team. And they take place during the current Civil War run.

Netflix Present: A Series of Unfortunate Events

Alright guys. When this was announced early last year, I lost my mind. The Series of Unfortunate Events holds a similar place in my heart to Harry Potter; it’s an amazing book series that I literally grew up reading. But I was a tiny bit nervous, because the movie treated the source material TERRIBLY. But as I started watching the show Friday after work (Friday the 13th, ace job Netflix), my fears disappeared.

Relic Palette from Lunatick Cosmetic Labs

I have to admit, the big thing that sold me on this brand was definitely the package design. The palettes are coffin shaped, the mirror inside is shaped like a bat, and the box has skeleton hands giving you a heart. It’s all pretty dang amazing. So, I bought myself the Relic palette and got so pumped to see the cute designs in my mailbox.
