American Gods by Neil Gaiman

I’m not sure if you know this Fangirls, but I love mythology. A lot. It’s my favorite subject of all time. I also have discovered a love for Neil Gaiman and his genius writing. I’m not joking, he is a genius. But more on that later. I just finished his novel American Gods, and let me tell you it’s one of the most fun books I’ve read

Nerd’s Gotta Eat: Harry Potter Muffins

Alright friends, family, and Fangirls.I absolutely adore these muffins, and it’s definitely not just because they’re from a Harry Potter cookbook. Not only are they beyond tasty, the recipe makes a ton (Who needs 2 dozen blueberry muffins? Me.) and it’s a simple recipe to follow. So lets get to it!

Espionage Cosmetics: Laura + Luci Nail Wraps

Fangirls, I love comics. I love reading about them, wearing them, supporting them,seeing them in movie form; any way I can take them in, I like to. Since I have a full time job with a strict dress code and don’t do much on my time off, ripping nerd clothes doesn’t happen as much as I’d like. But recently I found out about Espionage Cosmetics, a cosmetic company focused on all things nerdy. One of their specialties is nail wraps, so I became incredibly excited when I found their Laura + Luci and Baal + Inanna nail wrap sets. I started off by ordering just the Laura + Luci set, because they’re my girls, and it had been awhile since I read the comics, so they stood out to me more (plus the pink/purple/blue suits my wardrobe more).

Nerds Gotta Eat: Fancy Grilled Cheese

Fangirls, this recipe is from the same book as my Waffles, but when I saw it, I immediately thought, wow, that’s the fanciest grilled cheese I’ve ever seen. I’m gunna make it, and so I did! it looks like some Grade A artisanal nonsense, but it is the most delicious grilled cheese I have ever made, and well worth the weird looks for combining ingredients that don’t look like they belong together.

Nerds Gotta Eat: Death Star Waffles with Blueberry Bombs

For the past couple of weeks, I have been eyeing a magazine at work. Time Magazine’s 100 Healthiest Foods and How to Eat Them has been sitting on our  magazine rack, taunting me. I couldn’t justify the $14 price on a magazine, but when I saw the 30 recipes in the back (and the incredibly gorgeous photos throughout) I finally doled out the cash. One of the recipes really called to me; waffles. I had just ordered a Death Star Waffle Iron from ThinkGeek, and felt the only way to celebrate was to make waffles (of course)!
