Its the first Friday of the new year, peeps, which means its the first Fan Girl Friday of 2017! WOOOOO! And get ready because I’ve got some awesome finds to kick your year off and help you stick with those resolutions!

 

If you’ve resolved to be more positive, check out these affirmation cards from Paper Source!

Each card has a positive affirmation to help you put that negativity to rest and embrace the new year with a new outlook! Plus, unicorns.

 

Maybe your resolution is to start keeping a diary, but writing a long journal entry every day seems a big daunting. Look no further than the One Line a Day diary!

This memory book has space for one line a day, every day, for five years! Just jot down a daily note: “Dropped my churro on the street today. Five second rule FTW!” or maybe a funny quote you overheard. Plus, when you fill it up, it will be fun to look back over the past five years of memories!

 

Perhaps you’ve resolved to start a new hobby. Might I suggest the Clay Animation Movie Kit?

Yes, I know this is *technically* for kids, but it looks awesome! The kit includes: a movie studio stage, 4 full color backdrops, one white backdrop, phone camera stand, 4 sheets of props, 8 colors of modeling clay, 2 modeling tools, and 18 googly eyes in 3 sizes! Just don’t fall too deep down the rabbit hole like Ben Wyatt.

 

And maybe, you’re one of the folks that said, “Eff resoltuions! I just want to stay at home and chillax.” I’ve got you covered too! You, my friend, need these bath bombs–they are simply out of this world! (Hey-o!)

Each bath bomb has a different fragrance and represents eight of the planets (poor Pluto!) and the sun!

 

Happy fangirling!

This weekend, I hosted my Best Mate’s baby shower. The theme? Doctor Who! When I found out she was having a boy, I automatically knew that would be the theme– I mean, hello–everything’s BLUE!

Knowing the theme, I ordered these silicone molds from Think Geek:

tardis mold

I thought I’d use them for little chocolates or maybe mini cupcakes. Yeeeahhh… I didn’t realize they were bigger than they looked. Must’ve been that timelord technology.

Anywhoo, I thought, “What can I make with these?” Then it hit me: soap!

I looked online or instructions and got to work! First, I gathered my gear:

To begin, I sprayed the molds with alcohol to help the glycerin not to create bubbles.

Then, I melted the glycerin. I placed it in a microwave-safe bowl and heated it up for 30-second intervals, stirring between each interval, until the glycerin was melted thoroughly.

Next, I added the color and essential oils. I chose lavender because its relaxing and I like the smell.

After the soap was blue throughout, I poured the glycerin into the molds and sprayed it with alcohol again, to reduce the bubbles.

I let the soap set overnight and then popped them out in the morning:

This was such a simple and fun little craft! I ended up using the soaps as prizes for the game we played and people really liked them! I think I may go buy a circle mold and make some “fun soap” for my nieces and nephews!

Fan Girl Friday New Background1

 

Happy Friday, everyone! It’s our first FGF of the New Year! Woot, woot! I have scoured the interwebs and found some delightfully dorky treats to get your year started off right!

 

What’s the ONE thing that could make Legos better? I mean, besides making it pain-free to step on one. Why, having a custom-built Lego mini fig of course!

Fan Girl Friday Print Your Face on Legos

Now you can get a Lego figurine with YOUR face on it! Through a company on Etsy called Funky 3D Faces, you can have a custom, 3-D printed Lego head to attach to any Lego figurine you want! That means you could place your head on the new Doctor Who mini fig and walk around inside the TARDIS! A dream come true!

 

While I was walking around Target the other day, I saw a cookbook that I absolutely need!

Fan Girl Friday Nerdy Nummies

Rosanna Pansino—an internet chef!—has released her first book filled with geeky goodies to satisfy anyone’s sweet tooth! Recipes include: robot cake pops, geode candy cupcakes, and much more! The different chapters are: Math and Science, Space, Sci-Fi and Fantasy, Gaming, Tech and Web, and Geeky Treats!

 

One of my goals this year is to pick up a new hobby. I feel like everyone in my family has got a “thing”. My mom crochets, my sister bakes, my other sister sews, and my dad can build anything. Me? I can offer sarcastic comments and movie quotes. Something I think I’d really like is embroidery. Mostly because I saw this on Pinterest and I want to make them all! Luckily, Perpetual Kid has me covered!

Fan Girl Friday Embroidery Kit

How cute is this “paper” embroidery kit?! I think I’d do okay with this since it already has lines on it—ha!

 

 

Y’all, this next one hit me in the feels. Before we found out that Huff the Babe was a boy, we called him “Peanut”. I’m thinking I should ask Huff the Hubs for this as my “push present”:

Fan Girl Friday Peanut Necklace

Isn’t it adorable? This legume lovely is only $12.99 and would be an adorable accessory to any outfit!
