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!
Friends, I finally sat down and read the trade collection of Henchgirl, Kristen Gudsnuk’s comic. I’ve known Kristen for a couple of years, and am so happy that this fantastic story was picked up by Dark Horse.
Alright Fangirls, this will be brief, but we watched the premier of the new season of Samurai Jack, and I am just so head over heels in love with it, that I’ve got to talk about it.
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.
It happened, Fangirls. They released another book in the Harry Potter series. Like horcruxes, they promised 7, and there ended up being 8. It’s pure magic.
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.
Alright, Fangirls, I’m deep into both bath season and my love of Jasper from Steven Universe. Somewhere in my stupor while in a Lush store, I grabbed this bubble bar exclusively because it’s orange like my favorite big tough cheeto puff. I sure am grateful that I did, because I am in love with this.
