This soap is special. I didn’t think it would be worth it at first, especially since it is floral and I don’t like floral scents, but I’ve been using it for a bit now and I’m so in love, I know I will regret the day I run out.
Happy Thanksgiving, Fangirls! Today I’d like to give thanks for my amazing family, phenomenal friends, and rad as heck boyfriend. A little while back, I had the pleasure of meeting said boyfriend’s parents, and I got super freaked out because first impressions are so important, and I can never visit someone empty handed. My go-to for first visit gifts tends to be food, but his mother is gluten free, and he is allergic to everything under the sun! I originally tried making gluten free Pizzelles, but that was a disaster and a half, so I went to Lauren Lopez’s These Treats Don’t Suck. In it, Ms Lopez writes about how she has a princess tummy that doesn’t like gluten or dairy, so I figured it may be a good place to start. I was incredibly right. Lopez had a ton of recipes in there, but most had chocolate or nuts (allergy king would not be able to eat those). Luckily, there is a recipe for Sassy Pumpkin Muffins that was free of nuts, chocolate, and gluten (heck, there’s no dairy either)!
Fangirls, I’ve lived my life as someone who loves soap and lotion. It’s just how I am. I want my body to smell good not just because of deodorant or perfume; I want my skin to be soft and sweet. Lotions have really helped me with that, especially in the winter.
I’ve gone from, I guess I’ll try bath bombs, to wow this is the only present I ever want to receive for the rest of my life, in about a month. I’m comfortable saying that I have an addiction to bath bombs, and that’s just my life now. I take more than one bath a week, and I’m quite pleased that my skin hasn’t turned into lizard scales because of hot baths and cold weather. This time I tried a bath bomb not from a big company, but from an independent person on Etsy, the Not So Sirius Apothecary.
Fangirls! November is national banana pudding month. So of course, it was only natural to try my hand at the dessert. Banana pudding is misleading in the tastiest of ways. It’s made up of delicious layers of vanilla pudding, sweet whipped cream, bananas, and vanilla wafers. It’s a delightful party of textures & flavors in your mouth, that absolutely deserves it’s one month.
Maybe it’s just the giant coffee geek in me, but when I think of Thor, I can’t help but think of coffee. I’m sure you all know the scene I’m thinking of. “This drink, I like it. Another!” So upon yesterday’s release of the newest Thor comic, I got to thinking about what coffee drink would be truly fit for a God, or Goddess, of Thunder.
Time to drink up, Fangirls! This week I’ve got a slew of recipes for you. Word to the wise, don’t try these all if you have to go to bed early that evening, because the amount of sugar in them is freaking ridiculous.
