"Anna Capelle doesn't look like your ordinary teenage girl. In fact, she isn't really an ordinary teenage girl at all. But when Anna is uprooted from her comfortable home in New York City, she must learn to adjust to all things ordinary in the small community town of New Hope. 


Come along with this loveable little Goth girl as she navigates the murky waters of dealing with a new school, trying to make friends, and surviving a rather tense home life. The longer she stays in New Hope, though, the more she realizes that nothing is truly ordinary. 


-A unique coming of age story for those who truly don't feel they fit in."




☃ Happy Winter Holidays, everyone!

5 Ways To Pamper Yourself This Fall

I am so ready for autumn - you have no idea. But I also recognize that this time of year can be stressful for a lot of people. It's the beginning of the school year, it's the end of the fiscal year and time to balance budgets in a lot of companies, illnesses like the flu ramp up again and Seasonal Affective Disorder rears its ugly head.

Those of you who can't fully enjoy the autumn season have my sympathy. This post is for you.

Well, it's for all of us really, but especially for you! 

Here are 5 relaxing ways you can pamper yourself this fall:

1. Start Dry Brushing

Not only is dry brushing great for exfoliating your skin, it also increases blood flow and stimulates the lymphatic system which can boost your immune system and your mood.

2. Paint Your Nails a Fall Color

Put away the creme polishes and the barely there pink and nude shades, autumn is the time to break out the vampy reds, purples, and blacks. Copper is a good choice for those wanting to stay in neutral territ…

❧❧❧❧
4. Summer is a terrible season.

5. Self-tanner looks horrible on most people. 


Disagree with me? Perfect!

Menhera and Yami Kawaii - So Cute I Could Die

Unless you're an avid follower of the more obscure fashion trends to creep out of Harajuku in the last two decades, you probably haven't heard of the fashion subculture movements that are challenging Japan's silent mental illness epidemic and suicide problem.

*Content Warning: Mentions of mental illness, self-harm, suicide, and other potentially triggering ideas. Read at your own risk.


Enter Menhera and Yami Kawaii.

According to the tumblr account fymenhera, menhera (メンヘラ) is a Japanese slang term derived from the English 'mental health' and sparked a whole underground fashion subculture often referred to as yami kawaii (病みかわいい) or "sick cute".

Refinery29 did a piece on this a while back, which you can find here or simply watch the video below:


Japan (and other parts of Asia) have long carried an intense and negative stigma towards mental illness. Those suffering from mental illness or other mental health problems had very little in the way of resources or…
