While I would love to say that I practice self love every day, it’s something I struggle with. But the absolutely incredible Amanda Swiger had an event la couple weeks back, titled Self Love Saturday, and I had the pleasure of attending!
Quick note: this post contains images of folks that are 18+ in lingerie and undies. If you are not comfortable with that, please do not click the more tab!
I heard about these travelers undies while listening to travel blogs at work one day. Since my mum and I are preparing for a week-long trip to the UK with just our carry-on luggage, I’m looking for as many ways as possible to make my pack lighter (more space=more room for souvenirs). One of the blogs I was listening to brought Ex Officio up; apparently their underwear is some of the best in travel for men and women, so I figured I would try it out!
Fangirls! Remember that phenomenal, women-centric book that Sam Maggs has written that we talked about last week, Wonder Women?! Well it’s such a rad book that the brought the release date up two weeks! Wonder Women will now be released on October 4th, that’s one week from today! And if you weren’t excited enough for it, hold on to your hats.
The absolutely incredible Paulina Ganucheau (Zodiac Starforce & Another Castle) and Jen Bartel (Jem & Girl Gang) have been commissioned by the Quirk books crew to create some stunning wallpapers for giveaway with the book! Everyone that pre-orders Wonder Women will be entered to win a framed print, signed by the artist and Sam Maggs!
If you haven’t preordered Wonder Women yet, I urge you to. It’s an amazing book; well written, incredibly researched, and perfectly put. It’s endorsed by Amy Poehler’s Smart Girls, and is exactly what every woman and girl (and the dudes too) on your holiday shopping list needs.
You can preorder Wonder Women here.

I’ve been on a book frenzy, Fangirls. As you may recall in my review of Sepulchre by Kate Mosse, I mentioned that it was book two in a loosely connected trilogy. Well, I’ve now read book one, Labyrinth, and I’m absolutely in love with it.
Fangirls, I’ve finally had time to sit and read recently. And needing a break from the world of Westeros, I picked up a book I’d bought at a book sale, Sepulchre by Kate Mosse. It blends history with fiction, past with present, supernatural with reality. Right up my alley. And I really liked it.
