It’s been a while since I’ve mentioned books on my little space but I’ve definitely been reading. I am ridiculously excited to be talking about Throne of Glass! I first read this when it was on FictionPress years ago under the name Queen of Glass and I absolutely fell in love with it. When I went back to re-read it, it had been removed because the author wanted to publish it and I soon after forgot about it and worried about other struggles such as school and work. I then rediscovered it about a year ago, all shiny and published and I must say that it was even better than I remembered it. So let’s talk about it, shall we? Continue reading

My Transitioning Hair Routine: The Summer Lineup

Summer is here at last and if you live anywhere where it is hot and humid, y’all know it’s serious. At the beginning of the month, I thought I could rock with the same products I was using earlier in the year when I was away at school and in a completely different climate. Needless to say, my hair was a hot mess. The natural part of my hair was shrunken and frizzy and the relaxed ends were limp and could not hold a curl worth a damn. So, I switched up the starting lineup and I must say, I am digging it. Continue reading
