Magic mirror, on the wall—who is the fairest one of all? aka. Crimson talks a bit about Body Type

Hey guys! Here I am again, popping in for one post this month. I know, tragic right? Well, if anyone is even out there wondering (lol)

For today’s post I wanted to write a bit about this month’s OWLS topic:

“Magic mirror, on the wall—who is the fairest one of all?”

When we look in the mirror, what do we see? Do we see ourselves or someone we don’t want to be? For this month’s theme, we will be exploring some of our favorite anime and other pop culture mediums that redefine individual beauty—inside and out. Some topics we may explore are physical appearances, social expectations on gender, and the importance of self-confidence.

Also, as an FYI, this post is not part of the official tour. But if anyone is curious, these were the official stops so if you haven’t checked these out, definately do so! Continue reading

Late to the Game but Better Late Than Never [OWLS June Posts]

I usually post this thing at the beginning of the month but as a few of you might have noticed, I’ve been MIA. But that hasn’t stopped me from going around the wordpress community and checking out my fellow OWLS posts and I think we’ve hit another home run! So far everyone’s posts have been great and you should all check them out if you haven’t already

For this month, here was our topic: Continue reading

OWLS Team (unofficial?) Blog Tour: When A Family Needs to Work Together to Make It Function

Oh dear, that title sounds a bit dreadful and I even changed one of the words so that it wouldn’t sound too bad but not sure it worked…

Why hello there young people of here and there. Welcome to a possibly unofficial OWLS post. I’ve been MIA for a really long time and am not sure if this post even counts for the tour anymore. Either way I thought I’d share it with you all. Unlike my other OWLS posts, I’ve decided to make this one a bit more personal in the sense that I’m letting you all in through my family’s front door  Continue reading

Hey guys! So we are now in May eherm the BEST month of the whole year. I take no arguments over this fact

Why is it the best month ever? Because I get to eat cake three times

I know, it’s amazing isn’t it. It’s the only month I can eat so many cakes and not get the whole ‘you’re eating too much junk’ talk. You see in May my family has 2 birthdays and then Mother’s Day! I’ll be making cheesecake and ordering some other kind of ‘real’ cake for the celebrations (oh snap, that mean’s it’s 6 cakes!!) Continue reading

OWLS on ICE!! Blog Tour

I can’t believe we’re already in February! Next thing you know it’s going to be March, April, May, DECEMBER! Haha

As a recap, we just completed our first OWLS Blog Tour on January 30th and we’re not stopping there just yet. We’ve already got February all lined up with great posts for you all. Great posts featuring a certain ice skating anime, anyone care to guess?

So here’s the story: OWLS had this very democratic election for when the next tour would be and about what. Sneaky me went ahead and put in a ton of YOI ballets without anyone noticing and BAM YOI Blog Tour (but seriously, I’m sure I wasn’t the only one, I see you Arria hehehe)

One of the reasons YOI got such a huge crowd (I feel) is that it treated being gay as secondary and touched on issues of gender identity successfully (subjective here). Neither Victor or Yuri were defined by their sexuality and they were your normal everyday characters with relatable life problems. Because of that (and their over 9000 Cuteness levels), OWLS decided it would be a great series to talk about during February, the supposed month of love and friendship Continue reading

OWLS Blog Tour Has Begun!!

Hey guys!

Remember I mentioned that I was part of this super awesome blogging group that would be blogging about acceptance and love in the community? Yeah, I don’t really remember much either, you see, it all started a few weeks back when I got hit in the head and my memory was wiped clean, Nada in my brain

Luckily, I had this really awesome dream that brought it all back and now that my hands are free to run across a keyboard for things other than typing in numbers into an accounting program, I thought I’d let you all know… Continue reading

OWLS: Free to be ME!

Hey guys ^^

So many of you might have heard about this already (from other members) and I did allude to a community project in my last Blogging Update post, and (well) it’s past December 12th which means I can talk about it some more!

Ever since November 9th there’s been a surge of violence, stress, and fear around the country, and it’s been something unavoidable on social media, the news, and on the streets. Taking all of this into account, an awesome fellow blogger Kausus (OGZ) thought up an idea to show our love and support for the communities undergoing stress over what happened. A bunch of great bloggers were rounded up and here we are now, about to make our debut!
