Book Review: Archon


Archon (The Books of Raziel #1) by Sabrina Benulis. Archon is book one in a series about Angela Mathers, a troubled young woman who dreams of angels and is apparently unkillable (she knows, she’s tried). The book starts as she’s released from a mental institution and starting out at a new university, West Wood Academy, a priest-run school for blood heads like her (red-headed children with powers). Society sends all such children to one place, because one of them is going to be the prophesied Archon, who will unlock the lost book of the archangel Raziel and have the power […]

Anjolee Jewelry

I was provided a free necklace from Anjolee in exchange for an honest review. Ok, let me start this off by saying that my clothing/jewelry budget does not leave me in any position to be buying diamond jewelry, of any kind. However, I like to window shop as much as the next girl, especially online. And Anjolee jewelry provides an excellent daydreamy window shopping experience. When they approached me about doing a post, I was hesitant, because I wasn’t sure I’d find something that was my style (I mean, the first thing you think of when you think Amanda’s Style […]

New Design: Frangipani


A new design! Here’s the flower that I based it off of: And here’s my design: This is a frangipani flower, though you may also know it as plumeria. I had never encountered it before doing my study abroad in Australia, and then I fell in love with it. It’s still my favorite flower, both for appearance and for scent. This design took me a bit of a different route from my norm, very minimal. But still stylized and bold, so it still fits with my other designs. Right now I only have the customizable listing ready to go, but […]

Book Review: Dark Paradise

Dark Paradise

Dark Paradise (#1) by Angie Sandro. I received a free copy of this book for review from NetGalley. If you’re in the mood for a New Adult murder mystery romance with ghosts and Louisiana swampland ambiance, you might want to give this book a whirl. It’s the story of Mala LaCroix, last in a long line of “witch women” – except she doesn’t believe in any of that nonsense, and wants nothing to do with it. She just wants to get by: working, saving up for her criminal justice classes, crushing on George the deputy, and avoiding her drunken mother. […]

Try the World

A few weeks ago I got wind of a new subscription box that intrigued me. It’s called Try the World, and every two months they send you a box full of gourmet foodie goodies representing a particular city around the world. They call it ‘A Taste of the World in a Box’, and for those of us not rich enough to be jet-setters, this seemed like the next best thing to taking a trip. So I signed up, and awaited my first box, which was all about Paris. This is what I got: It comes with a handy list of […]
