This book was such a pleasant surprise! I initially got it because it was featured on Book Perks and it was $1.99. I’m always a sucker for the underdog/bullied storyline. I thought this book was going to be a subpar romance novel (I blame the generic stock image they have for the American cover, I prefer the UK illustrated version) and it ended up being an amazing, deep, bullying-survivor story. There were several times this book had me in tears. It also has great, witty dialogue and the characters are very well developed.
I will admit that it did take me a minute to get into the rhythm and banter of British humor. I’m glad I muddled through because it’s a big part of why this book is so good. Right after this book, I read all of Mhairi McFarlane’s books and she has quickly become one of my favorite authors. I can’t wait for her latest book to come out, Who’s That Girl?, on September 6, 2016.
Hello! Hello! Today we had the pleasure of shooting a video with the lovely Lyanne Manzanilla. Lyanne is also a fellow YouTuber and you should check out her adorable videos at YouTube.com/LyanneManzanilla.
We had a great time following this Pinterest tutorial from I Spy DIY on how to dip dye planters and give them an ombre effect.
Below is a list of items you will need for this project:
Dye tinte (we used the brand Rit, you find this at Michael’s or the grocery store)
We actually found this project to be very easy and fun. We weren’t sure if we were going to end up with a Pinterest fail on our hands. We do you recommend you use longer dipping times than suggested in the tutorial and just pour the whole packet in your 2 cups of hot water.
Hello! Just got back from our October Geek Girl Brunch meetup and I’m still giddy from all the fun we had. We had a fantastic time and was lovely to see so many of the attendees in costumes. Each time we go, we always meet great new people 🙂 This month’s meetup was held at Earls Kitchen + Bar in Dadeland Mall. Below are more pictures of this awesome event.
Elsie and Aurora, thank you again for organizing such a great event. I’m always look forward to the next one <3
p.s. Meli, we missed you! Congrats on your beautiful baby girl, Luna 🙂
