5 Fandom Friday - Guilty pleasures

  This was a really difficult post for me because I don’t really have any guilty pleasures. I don’t feel guilty about what I enjoy any more. Maybe it comes with age, because when I was younger I was very concerned about what people thought and now I’m just like.. pft, not your business :p So how did I manage to come up with this list? I thought of more complex reasons for why I might feel guilty about these, or elements of them. Anita Blake series This is one of my favourite book series, so why is it even on this list? There haveRead More →

5 Fandom Friday - Geeky tattoos

When I first started this prompt I thought I’d have to change to prompt slightly, and then I began to realise that there were no examples of tattoos out there that summed up what I would ever get. So I ended up doing the prompt properly 😀 As a Libra I love art, but I’m also very picky. On top of that I’m very ticklish and one of my conditions means my skin does odd things.

5 Fandom Friday - Womances Redux

So, it turns out that I screwed up this Fandom 5 and as this weeks is a make-up one (aka do one you missed previously) I decided to redo this one. I didn’t realise womance was the equivalent of bromance and therefore pertained to friendship not actual romance. So here are my top 5 female friendships. Eve/Jaime Jaime: “It keeps me toned.” Eve: “So does kickboxing. And it’s a damned sight more practical too. Some guy jumps you in an alley, what are you going to do? Assume the lotus position?” I absolutely love this series of novels by Kelley Armstrong, but the one womanceRead More →

5 Fandom Friday - In my bag

Lipbalm & Lipgloss I hate dry lips and so I always keep some lipbalm and lipgloss in my bag. I love nivea’s lip care range and use several different ones regularly. The current lipglosses I’m using are from Collection 2000.     Notebook I love having a notebook with me so I can write down anything I need to know, or remember. To do lists keep me sane and stop me from over stressing, and I keep a diary for noting down date specific. Notebooks are also great to have handy if you’re a writer or student; ideas for writing or assignments can come atRead More →

5 Fandom Friday - OTPs

  OTP stands for One True Pairing; your favourite pairing in a fandom. Or in my case, one of many. I often ship more than one couple in a fandom, and even more than one partner for a character. I’ve got a full list of my ‘ships over at my website but here are my top five. You should also totally check out the wonderful OTP clique Dearest to show your love for your OTP.   Luke Skywalker & Mara Jade Star Wars Expanded Universe   Luke: “Patience is a virtue.” Mara: “Never had much use for it myself.” Luke: “Yes, I’ve noticed.”   Luke:Read More →
