Mina, Allison, and Jasmine where household names for my husband and I but Leanne hadn’t shown up on our radar. After 2.5 years remodeling Château Enginerd, and stealing ideas from every episode of […]

Five Quick Lessons from Tidying Up With Marie Kondo (Netflix)

The KonMari method became popular early in the 2000s because it gave people a simple five step method to approach decluttering and/or organizing your life.

Book Review: The Fangirl’s Guide to the Galaxy: A Handbook for Geek Girls by Sam Maggs

Quirk Books never disappoints! After approaching their booth in 2017’s ECCC, I have yet to find a geeky subject that they cannot deliver on. Impressed by the witty nerdy references and narration of Geek Wisdom and The Geek’s Guide to Dating, it followed that purchasing this guide book would not only be entertaining but provide […]

In Ice Cold Blood (Oxygen)

Before finding my new guilty pleasure The Wonderland Murders, I had been watching In Ice Cold Blood narrated by SVU’s own Ice-T. As a fan of true crime shows I couldn’t pass up on the opportunity to check out this dark spin on this documentary format and wasn’t impressed with the stand alone episodes. Don’t […]
