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 … Continue reading Rogue One: A Star Wars Story — a Short Review
Hey there, Two weeks to go until Christmas (and also Hanukkah!) and I bet you're still looking for that last little something that's unique and perfect for that hard-to-shop-for person on your list -- am I right!?

I didn't read the Grisha Trilogy prior … Continue reading Book Review #7 – Six of Crows by Leigh Bardugo
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 … Continue reading November Ipsy – Review & Comments
