This is going to sound really bad, but I love winning awards. Partly because I like the accolades and partly because I like seeing the questions other bloggers ask. The Rules The guidelines for this award are straightforward. Thank the blogger(s) that nominated you in the post and link back to their blog Answer the…

Hello lovely bloggers! I’d like to start having the occasional guest post on my blog, and since you’re all wonderful, intelligent, eloquent people, I thought I’d ask you first. I’m looking for beauty, books, paranormal, travel… basically the same kinds of topics you see on my blog already. Maybe we can trade posts? If you’re…

You know how we all have running group chats with friends, family, coworkers, whatever? One of mine is titled My Gangsters and consists of myself, Becky, Jason, Shauna, and Alisha. Last summer Alisha moved from our home in Western NY to Erie, PA. Yesterday was her birthday, and when Becky found out that she didn’t have…

I’m not even sure where to start with this one. So, I’m a massive Star Wars fan. I love Princess Leia. She’s the only person in the whole damn series who can hit anything with a blaster. I also love Carrie Fisher, even outside of Star Wars. She was a brilliantly funny writer and comedian,…
