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.

NAC Nail Wraps

Fangirls, not only do I refuse to stop purchasing nail products, I honestly don’t think I can stop. I have a drawer full of nail polish (many duplicates), and I continue to buy more. And now that I know about, and kind of understand nail wraps, I keep buying those too. I had my boy (who has Amazon Prime, praise) order me some cute space themed nail wraps from NAC (Nail Art Club Inc), by way of Amazon. I love shopping with Amazon Prime because I get my stuff the next day, which is wonderful since I’m the least patient person on the planet. So I got my cute space nail wraps, and squealed a bunch over how cute they were. Then I got down to business, and applied the little dudes.

Nerds Gotta Eat: Homeworld Gem Cupcakes

Sure, the Crystal Gems will always save the day, but they’d be super bored if it weren’t for the Homeworld Gems making things more difficult, right? I chose my three favorite Homeworld Gems; Jasper, Peridot, and Yellow Diamond and decided there would be nothing better than cupcakes devoted to them. I know Peridot is technically a Crystal Gem now, but whatever. She’s always going to be a troublemaker in my mind, so it’s all good.

(Dis)Nerds Gotta Eat: Merida’s Vegetarian Haggis

“It’s Just a wee sheep stomach!” Nope, not anymore. Hey Fangirls, this week we’ve got something that I’ve been excited to try since I first saw Brave; a vegetarian dish inspired by Haggis. Haggis is typically a dish made in sheep stomach, but for gals like me, that’s even more unappealing than to your average human. Being vegetarian means finding protein in places other than meat, but I know very few people who don’t experiment with food to find new ways to get their main courses other than frozen fake meat burgers. So I found a recipe online for Vegetarian Haggis, and went for it!
