Something New by Lucy Knisley

Fangirls, Lucy Knisley seems like a damn rad lady. I was introduced to her work by Natalie, who wrote here for a spell. Natalie showed me French Milk, one of Knisley’s old books, about living (and eating) in France. It’s beautiful and poignant. Plus I have instant respect for creators who write and illustrate their own work. Knisley’s book, Something New, is about her relationship with her friend and on-and-off-boyfriend (now husband). It shows their relationship from the beginning through their honeymoon (which they took 5 months after the wedding). It’s a neat story, and a great way to catalogue memories.

Ratchet & Clank Future: A Crack in Time

One of the great things about free time while the boy is at work is playing his video games. He has a pretty solid collection of Ratchet & Clank games, and at his place was the first time I played one of their games; Into the Nexus. This time, I played Ratchet & Clank Future: A Crack in Time. This was another wonderfully crafted story, and I was excited to play through it. Crack in Time follows Ratchet and Clank separately, as Ratchet works to find Clank, and Clank learns about his destiny.

Thinx Period Panties

Fangirls, I never saw myself as buying period panties that I considered “fancy.” Period undies have always been undies that it isn’t a big deal if they get bled on, because even with pads and tampons, it’s a possibility. But at the end of December I said to myself that since I’m trying to do better for myself this year, I may as well try doing something better for the environment too, and I ordered myself a pair of Thinx.

Warm Wishes Nail Lacquer Collection from Ulta Beauty

Though my hands aren’t the first thing you see when you meet me, I always try to make a good impression with them. That has led me to having a passionate love for nail polish. Much like lipstick, nail polish is something I need to not buy anymore, because I have so much of it. I think it’s a small thing that I can control in my daily life, and I need that little bit of control, the way my anxiety is.
