Beauty and the Beast

I’ve been on vacation, but I knew I needed to take the time and go see the new Beauty and the Beast film. I grew up with Belle as a personal hero. Heck, I’m the same age as the original cartoon. It’s literally been with me my whole life. When I heard about the new version, all I had was excitement. And I certainly was not disappointed.

Nerds Gotta Drink / Or Not

Fangirls, as I’ve been working to lose weight, I’ve noticed that my interest in drinking has taken a steady delicate. I allow myself a limited number of calories daily, and therefore find it incredibly difficult to justify drinking my calories away.

I am working rather hard to get healthier, and feel better about myself, so I don’t see the need to put all of my hard work to waste by drinking often; I do still have a drink on occasion, but I don’t drink weekly, or even bi-weekly. Also, it had become a struggle to stay creative with NGD articles, as I just wasn’t feeling it a lot of the time. So my solution is to both problems; toss Nerds Gotta Drink.

Now, this won’t be gone forever, and it’s not guaranteed that it will be gone. Since I’m working on keeping the site more casual and comfortable, I’m not going to pressure myself to write about drinks biweekly, only when I make something that’s delicious and worth sharing. Otherwise I feel it’s a waste of both my and your time, and we both deserve better. So I will be writing more often about the tasty meals I make for myself and my family. I think this will be great because I get to work on my love of food photography and my love of trying new foods. Plus you get to see how great healthy food can be! It’s a win-win.

I appreciate your understanding and support of the changes I’m making, and I am very excited to be sharing new, healthier recipes with you from here on out.

On Changing

Fangirls, we have to talk. It’s time for Fangirls Are We to go through some changes. Though a lot of our stuff is going to stay the same, some things are going to disappear (three comic reviews a week seems a little too much, especially since I have issues keeping up on them), and they’re going to be replaced by lifestyle pieces. There will still be pieces on food and drinks, comics, books, and beauty, but there will also be more DIY and journal-like pieces, along with a more relaxed schedule.

My goal is for this site to bring people together, to give myself and other Fangirls worldwide a sense of community, in loving fandom and life. It’s important that I enjoy writing, and I’ve been having trouble enjoying some things for awhile now. I want the site to be good for everyone, and have different facets, but I also want it to grow and change with me, and I move up and on in life.

I appreciate your ever constant support, Fangirls and Fanboys, as FAW has gone through several large changes throughout our years. I strive to keep the site a safe and positive space for nerdy things and everything else. Thank you so much.

On Changes

Fangirls, you’ve probably been noticing a lack of updates from us here at Fangirl Headquarters. I’m working to make sure we’ve got stuff for you, but things are changing. Two of our main writers (Natalie & Kyle) are going back to school, and will be very busy, so they’re leaving.

Though it’s a big bummer to lose these folks, I understand completely; education is so important! So I’m looking to expand the Fangirl Team! I’ve got some amazing writers joining, along with Amanda (who has been killing it as of late). If you’re interested in writing with us, send me an email at fangirlsarewe@gmail.com, and we’ll get you set up!

Basically, I want you all to be in the loop about what’s changing with us. We’re still here, and excited to bring you our thoughts on Fangirling!

Feminerd: Women’s Health

So Fangirls, this week we’re focusing less on social issues for women, and more on some physical ones. No matter how united & non binary we want gender to be, there are health issues associated with your sex* that stick them selves more to one side. Women are more at risk for some illnesses than men, but luckily, we know what they are and can help make it so we never have to battle then.
