Comic Books

Back in November I shared what comic books I read and collected. Now, three months later, and there's a few more titles that I've added to this list. Honestly, more and more comic titles being released are drawing me in and giving me kickass females to admire.

Batgirl
"Barbara Gordon is no stranger to dusting herself off when disaster strikes so when a fire destroys everything she owned, she spots the opportunity for a new lease on life—and seizes it! Following the rest of Gotham's young adults to the hip border district of Burnside, Barbara sets about building an all-new Batgirl and discovers all-new threats preying on her peers! It's a re-invention of Batgirl from the boots up, by the incredible creative team of Cameron Stewart (BATMAN INC.), Brenden Fletcher (WEDNESDAY COMICS), and rising star Babs Tarr!"
Batgirl #35 was the issue I started with since it was the beginning of a new arc, a newly re-invented Batgirl (as stated above). I didn't know all the characters when jumping into this comic but after finding out who Dinah was and that most of the other characters were new, I was pretty much set. And can we discuss how amazing the art is?!? I need to meet Babs Tarr at a comic convention and buy a print or two from her.

Gotham Academy
"WELCOME TO GOTHAM ACADEMY! Gotham City’s most prestigious prep school is a very weird place. It’s got a spooky campus, oddball teachers, and rich benefactors always dropping by...like that weirdo Bruce Wayne. But nothing is as strange as the students!"
I kept hearing people on Twitter talking about this series and I knew it was a new series that I could easily jump into so I gave it a go. I fell in love with the first issue. I love that there's so many questions surrounding Olive Silverlock and you're not sure what happened to her and why things changed for her. Her friend Maps is especially adorable with her passion and curiousness with what's happening around the school. It's a very fun read. 


izombie
"Gwen Dylan is a gravedigger in an eco-friendly cemetery--and a zombie detective. Once a month, she has to eat a human brain, and as a result, Gwen's mind is crowded with the dead person's thoughts. And lately, she feels compelled to fulfill their final requests."
One of my best friends recommended this series to me years ago. I knew I wanted to read it but just never got around to it, so when I found the first two trades at the comic book store, I picked them up without hesitation. I've only read the first trade so far and plan on reading the second soon. It's incredibly interesting learning about Gwen, her 'situation', and her different friends. And I'm a huge fan of the art throughout it. Gwen is just gorgeous, even with a slightly overtired, somewhat frazzled look. I'm very excited to start the second trade since the first one ends with some unanswered questions.


The Unbeatable Squirrel Girl
"Wolverine, Deadpool, Doctor Doom, Thanos: There's one hero that's beaten them all, and now she's got her own ongoing series! (Not that she's bragging.) That's right, you asked for it, you got it, it's Squirrel Girl, (she's also starting college this semester!) It's the start of a brand-new series of adventures starring the nuttiest and most upbeat super hero in the world!"
There's only two issues out so far of this series so I'm writing about it very early. But it's just SO cute. The first issues starts with Squirrel Girl aka Doreen Green singing her own theme song while kicking butt. Her personality and positive attitude is especially admirable. Two issues in and I'm a big fan of Squirrel Girl. 

There's a few new comic series that I'm excited to read as well... A-Force, Black Canary, and Jem And The Holograms

New Mom Must-Haves

It's been just over 9 months since Emma entered this world. It's been crazy. So many ups and downs. But I wouldn't trade this experience in for anything. She's amazing. It's definitely a learning experience and I wouldn't have gotten through the last 9 months without the support I've had. My family and friends have been welcome resources to help me in this new chapter of my life.

Emma has been a great baby - she sleeps well, she eats well, she's overall content and happy. We haven't experienced many problems. But that doesn't mean every day has been easy. Some days I don't get the chance to shower between Emma, chores, and just trying to eat; other days, naps are on schedule, feedings run smooth, and I have the opportunity to not only shower, but write up a blog post or bake cookies.

Since it's the time of year when people are out buying gifts, I thought I'd share the top must-haves I've needed over the last 9 months. They would …

My Favourite Baby Must-Haves

Having my first child has been eye-opening. I've learnt so much and made so many mistakes. It becomes a guessing game of what your child needs at times. You want to be 'perfect' but the reality is we're all just winging it and doing the best we can. Sometimes that means spending hours on Google, texting every 'mom' friend you have, or on hold with poison control because your baby licked eczema cream off your finger when you were putting it on her cheeks (or trying to).

With Christmas around the corner, I thought I'd share the top baby items that have saved us over and over again. They would be perfect gift ideas for new parents-to-be or stocking stuffers for infants.

1. Swaddle blankets - even if your child doesn't like to be swaddled these blankets are amazing. They're extra large and made from a breathable cotton. They were perfect for the spring and summer to bring with us on walks. If there was a cool breeze, too much sun, or Emma was upset, hav…

New Beginning

It's a new year which always feels like a new beginning to me; a fresh start. I've never been one to hold myself all that accountable for new year resolutions. I wrote down a few goals I'd like to work on this year, but honestly, the only things that matter to me this year are making memories and doing what makes me happy.

We have some fun plans this year, some set in stone and others that we need to finalize. Emma will be walking this year and she's already proved 2019 to be interesting since she's now crawling and trying to stand up. I can only imagine how many new adventures we'll encounter this year with her.


I've also found new inspiration in my creative life - artists, creators, crafts, fabric. So many things have sparked new motivation in me. I haven't felt that in a while to be honest. It's nice. It's nice to feel these things again which make me want to spend time in my craft room or sit at my laptop and write .

My first step in my newf…
