Candelles

Fangirls, I’ve been lusting after Candelles Candles for quite some time now. I have followed their Instagram for 2 years, I think, and every time I’ve gone to make a purchase I’ve either shot myself down because of money or because of my disgustingly large candle collection. But recently, I decided that I should just go for it, and I ordered 2 from the Spring line. I wish I hadn’t used them so intensely in succession, but it was well worth it!

These are the folks responsible for Candelles!

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.
