Magic

I’ve always been enthralled with magic. From a young age I sought it out, looked for it in every book that I had read and in every face that I had known. Captivated by tales of enchantment, I continually searched for stories about monsters, myths, and legends. I’ve always identified with the homely heroine who…

Spring

It’s snowing. . . again. I’ve been watching the modest blizzard from my window for the past few hours as it covers the ground and paints the trees. It’s almost April. I thought we were done with this! I’ve already put my mittens, scarf, and boots away. The reappearance of the white, freezing flurry is…

Do Not Go to the Winchester

I know these past few weeks have been stressful. Sometimes it feels like we’re actually dealing with a zombie apocalypse. Luckily, our friends Simon Pegg and Nick Frost are here to help us laugh and relax. They’ve come up with the perfect plan. See you tomorrow! For more Kim the FanGirl follow the blog on…

The Creator

I am a world builder and a daydreamer. I am a storyteller. I am a writer. I am the designer of a million lovely landscapes. I am the author of a million ambitious scenes. I am the creator of a million imaginary situations, places where my heart and my characters live and breathe.

Rain

It’s been raining on and off for two days, but the warmth and the mist feel like magic. Watching from my window as a downpour bathes the earth seems to wash away my fear. The acute pain of hopelessness floats away. It is a renewal, a rebirth. My mind, which usually swirls swiftly like a…

What Are You Watching?

Two weeks at home, without much to do, means that you can catch up on some films and shows that have been waiting impatiently on your To Be Watched list. Three days in to required and extremely necessary social distancing and I’ve already sorted through three episodes of The Witcher, a much-needed re-watch of Moulin…

A Reminder

The world is a mess right now. DON’T PANIC. I know it may not seem like it, but it’s going to be okay. Instead of freaking out, take a little time, keep yourself occupied. This is a reminder to . . . 1. Take a walk 2. Read everything 3. Listen to music 5. Bake…

Walk

When winter arrives, it seems like there is no end in sight. Snow is piled high and the air is frosty and painfully frigid. Long treks are deemed unwise, so you and your doggo have to be satisfied by short, temporary excursions. Anything more than a brief walk is blocked and discouraged. You play with…

Thanks, Netflix

I found myself in a very common situation recently. I had filled my daily to-do list with achievable tasks. I had psyched myself up for a day of success. I was all ready for a full day of productivity when I decided to stop for a five minute procrastination break before I began. I checked…

Tired

I’m sitting here, at my desk, cursing myself for thinking I could write a post after I got home late from work. I don’t understand why I continue to think that I can make words magically appear, that I can craft and create, that I can write a few sentences down in haste. That’s not…

My Aesthetic

In general terms, I’d probably describe my aesthetic as vintage bohemian. If I were being specific, I’d probably describe my aesthetic as colorful blooms, songbirds and birdcages, elegant patterns, black and white prints, stardust and rainbows, fairies, classic film, and fringe. I’ve always been attracted to an unorthodox mix of vivid hues and nostalgic designs….
