I added this book to my Amazon list ages ago and never got around to reading it because there always seemed to be more appealing books to read. But the other day, while ordering a bunch of stuff for my upcoming trip to Ireland, I threw it in the cart just because. Since it’s relatively short and I’ve been waiting for ages to read it, I grabbed that first, and dove right in.
I’m not going to lie to you friends; it’s been so long since I’ve written about clothes that I feel a bit silly right now. But I also feel like I got one of the coolest shirts on the planet the other day, so we’re pushing through!
Fangirls, I struggled with these. Not the cakes themselves, but the frosting. I got incredibly frustrated and was so down on myself, but when I brought them in to work, they were a hit. I’m really glad I pushed through with this, because they were incredibly tasty, and reminiscent of one of my favorite Big Hero 6 characters, Honey Lemon!
Fangirls, if you follow my personal accounts anywhere, you know that I am obsessed with Moana. It’s an absolutely gorgeous movie that features a girl who was chosen by the ocean to grab a demigod and save the world. So when it came out on Tuesday, I was inspired to make some cupcakes that were reminiscent of the movie.
As many of you know, I’m a ridiculous Disney fan. I lose my mind every time I get to go to a park; I worked there and realized a need for Disney everything. One of my absolute favorite attractions is the Haunted Mansion. In the Mansion, you get into a “Doom Buggy” and make your way through a mansion that is packed full of grim, grinning ghosts. So when I heard that Disney Kingdoms was releasing a Haunted Mansion comic, I got incredibly excited. But I kept forgetting about it when I went to a comic shop. Luckily, while visiting New York in November, my mum suggested we say hello to my friends at their comic shop. There, I picked up the trade for train reading, but totally forgot about it until recently. Now that I’ve finished it, and I’m so excited to share it with you.
“You think you own whatever bar you land in. The stool is just some dead thing you can claim! But I know every rum, and gin, and vodka gives you life, is a spirit, has a name.” Fangirls, this week we’re taking it back to the Disney renaissance, with Pocahontas. Pocahontas sings about punting with all of the colors of the wind, but here we’re going to drink the colors of the wind (mostly reds and blues, but it’s good stuff).
Have you Fangirls seen Aristocats? If you haven’t go watch it immediately. It’s a phenomenal movie about how this old woman is leaving her house and fortune to her cats, so her butler drugs them and catnaps them and throws them off a bridge. Luckily, these cats have boxy, so they team up with various other animals to get themselves home. I based this drink off of the drink that the butler, Edgar, makes for the cats, that he calls Creme de la Creme de la Edgar, because it’ll knock you out if you’re not careful.
