February Loot Crate

IMG_20150223_211134_292

When the opportunity presented itself to have a geek/nerd box delivered to my house every month, I JUMPED at the chance. These are so cool, I can’t even.  I’m even scared to open most of this stuff!

The novel in there is Ready Player One, which I will admit I have never heard of but I’m excited to read and I will be reviewing it.

I am undecided on whether or not to give the doll to my kid to draw on or draw on it myself. The robot I will try and I’m not into dice games so if anyone out there wants them, feel free! I love sharing things from the boxes I get. :)

Next time I will get a better picture since I snapped this with my phone for Instagram. I’ll even try to pick it all apart and show you everything in it. They have awesome stuff.

February 2015 Birchbox

I’m not to impressed with the perfume but I am VERY picky about what scents I put on. Chances are they will never send me a perfume I fall madly in love with again because of that. As for the rest, I’m pleased! Lip gloss is my go to lip product (over lipstick) and I am a stickler for having soft, moisturized hands. Blemishes aren’t really a big deal for me (knock on wood it stays that way) so I may give away the cleanser and mask. You never know who can use them. :)

 

Finished Baby Blanket

 Too long ago, my cousin had a baby and seeing as how I crochet very slowly (and used to have people actively hindering me from doing needlework but thankfully, they go hinder someone else now) I still hope the little one can use it now that it’s done. It’s a very simple blanket with a black border; both acrylic yarn so you can wash the dickens out of it. This took a giant skein of pink yarn so this is a pretty decent dent in my stash!

This one is a gift but eventually I’ll be selling these as well. :)

New Needlework!

I’ve been pretty determined about getting rid of my giant yarn stash (it’s frightening, really) and getting to all the projects people have asked me for, so I’ll be posting things for your greedy little eyes to feast on as they’re completed. This is a crochet scarf that I mostly made for shits and giggles. Nobody asked me for it so I’ll probably be selling it if anyone wants it. It took up an entire skein of yarn to I’m happy to say it’s one skein down… Waaaayy too many to go.

 

Happy Birthday and Blessed Imbolc!

Blessed be and happy Candlemas to all my Pagan peeps out there! :D

Today, I am just relaxing, having taken off of work today. If you wanna check out stuff I’m doing or seeing today, check out my Twitter or Instagram.

New Reviews

I’ve been a busy bee over at Otakus and Geeks (ew… That kinda rhymes…), which has now been updated and moved to a new location! YAY! They are here, here, and here if you wanna check them out. :)

And more will be coming soon because publishers seem to be chomping at the bit to have me review their stuff!

That is very fitting for me. ;)

First things first is I actually tried the eyeliner and it went on smooth and fast. Bonus points for them sending me a color I could use daily. I got some gold color once that made me look like I should be going to a carnival or something. I haven’t tried the tea or almonds in there (the tea is behind the almonds all wrapped up and safe so I don’t lose them) but the cup really is my favorite thing this month. it cost extra but it was worth it
