Kappa Bath Bomb from Lush

As I’m sure many of you are aware, Lush released a TON of products last week; it was their biggest launch ever! There is an incredible selection of new items, and they definitely have reason to celebrate, because it’s the 30th anniversary of Lush inventing the bath bomb! One of the products that came out with this launch is the Kappa, and I wanted it to be my first one that I shared with you, because Kappas have some really neat mythology to them.

Now Listening: Unladylike

I have fallen in love with podcasts recently, Fangirls. They make the work day go by faster, they can be educational, and a lot of them have some pretty strong comedy elements. Recently, while perusing Spotify’s Podcast section, I came upon Unladylike. I just had to give it a listen!

I do have to warn you, this article (and the podcast, of course) feature some triggering information. Proceed with caution.

Daughter of the Sword by Steve Bein

As is the way of the book nerd, I am always looking for something new to read. Obviously, I’m in the middle of A Song of Ice and Fire series (working on book 3 at the moment), but sometimes I need something to break up the big huge series, especially one as large as ASOIAF. So what I like to do is go through a book store, see what sparks my interest, and then write down the title so I can get the sample on my kindle to see if it holds my interest. One recent find did just that.

It’s a whole secret world of comic based pornography that people don’t know about, but that nearly everyone was involved in.
