Safety Before Beauty

I am that weirdo. The one that puts safety, not comfort, before fashion. If a product is not safe, I won't use it.

W and the rest of my guy friends love hearing the satisfying clack clack of hitting the target, the shift of the... Continue Reading →

Voltron: Legendary Defender Season 6

As a lifelong fan of Voltron, I was excited about the reimagining of the series Dreamworks launched with Netflix.

Romance, long lost family, and even reincarnation are a few of the... Continue Reading →
