Star Wars: The Last Jedi – A Spoiler Free Review

Hello there, Time to end my blog haitus. While work is still pretty insane (the last week before the holidays is upcoming), I’m done term one of my Masters program, and I have more time to dedicate to reading (yahoo!) and writing. Of course, Star Wars brings out the writer in me, because I need…

Rogue One: A Star Wars Story — a Short Review

Hey there, I’m a Star Wars fanatic. I’m probably one of the biggest you know. My usernames across the board are ‘Darth Claudia’. I have a Mandalorian symbol tattooed on me (among other Star Wars references scattered about). I own enough Star Wars themed clothing to wear a different outfit every day. My bookshelves are…

Fantastic Beasts & Where to Find Them – a Short Movie Review

Hey there, Movie reviews are not a thing I’m interested in getting into, but Fantastic Beasts totally calls for a spoiler-free review. J.K. Rowling’s world became a big part of my life. I got the first books from my brother for Christmas, along with Harry Potter’s “textbooks” (Quidditch through the ages & Fantastic Beasts) when…

Book Review #8 – Pride & Prejudice Manga Edition

Hey there, I received an advanced copy of this novel. My review is in no way influenced by this. Pride & Prejudice in a manga format was immensely exciting to me! But to adapt Jane Austen’s awesome novel into an edition such as this was an ambitious one. I found the text and dialogue chosen…

Book Review #7 – Six of Crows by Leigh Bardugo

Hey there, I finally finished reading Six of Crows by Leigh Bardugo. It wasn’t a difficult novel to read but it was quite dense, it had a lot of detail, and wasn’t a book you could read in broken one-chapter-at-a-time pieces because there was a lot to keep up with. I didn’t read the Grisha Trilogy prior…

November Ipsy – Review & Comments

Hey there, Last month I ordered my first – and only – Ipsy bag. Right off the bat you may be asking why I stopped my subscription. It was worth the money (it’s very cheap) for the surprise of products and the cute accessory, but I don’t see getting enough use out of it to…

Book Review #2 – The Miniaturist by Jessie Burton

Hey there, It’s time for another book review! I finally finished The Miniaturist by Jessie Burton,  which wasn’t by any means a long book, but just goes to show the difference in time I can dedicate to reading on a weekend versus a weekday. I will not divulge any spoilers in this review, but there will be…

Perfume Samples – Collect, Experiment, Explore, Discover!

Hey there, I love perfume samples! Whenever I’m in a shop that gives you an option of what samples you want to try, I always go for the perfumes. And if there is an opportunity to get a deluxe sample, I’ll find a way to get that, too! Recently, I made a Christmas purchase (don’t…
