Happy Planner Giveaway

Quick update and a giveaway for a Happy Planner by Me & My Big Ideas.

Hello cupcakes and welcome back. I’m super excited to be running another giveaway on blog. This time it’s for a Happy Planner from Me & My Big Ideas. I’ve been using planners for awhile now, but this is the first time I’ll be using a Happy Planner. I picked mine up about a month ago, and fell in love. It doesn’t begin until July, but I love the layout already. Plus I can customize the cover, which I did and I’m just too excited.

I’m so so happy with the cover I ordered!!

I started to decorate it already, I couldn’t help myself. I have so many stickers I use from my other planners just calling out to be used.

Butterbeer and Fantastic Tales: The Wicked + The Divine

Hello and welcome back. A few weeks back I tweeted about wanting to get into comics and began to start looking into which ones to read. Over and over The Wicked + The Divine by Image Comics kept popping up, and with good reason. If you recall from my last post I mentioned that I begun to read The Wicked + The Divine. The comic began in June of 2014, and is published monthly, so I didn’t feel like I was too far behind.


Let me try to get into why without giving too much away. The comic revolves around the fact that every 90 years twelve mythical figures are reincarnated as young adults with godlike powers, minus the immortality that is. For 2 years they get to live like gods and then they die, so goes the story. We then meet a regular British gal named Laura that gets caught up with the current 12 Pantheon. While first drawn to this lifestyle, she soon starts to realize things aren’t all she expected it to be.


Why I like it, and you will to:

Well besides the main plot of mortal gods that have 2 years to live it up, there’s representation. I’m not just talking about diversity as far as races, but sexuality, and even when it comes to the gods (they don’t just stick to Greek or Roman, there’s also Norse, Celtic, and many more). Honestly this was one of the big things that really drew me in. I love representation and this comic is chock full of it. It’s refreshing to see people from all walks of life in a role of power. I also like that the characters morality vary also from good, to wicked and everything in between.

  
 

Of course there’s more to it but I don’t want to give away too much. I myself have only gotten up to book 5, but I can tell you they have a loyal reader already. I can’t wait to buy the other issues and catch up with the story. Oh and did I mention there’s talks of adapting it into a TV series? If this pans up I’m all for it!

   

So now we get to the fun part. Since I’m hooked on this comic I want to share my love of it with you. I’m giving you the opportunity to win your very own copy of  Vol 1 which is issues 1-5 of The Wicked + The Divine. All you have to do is follow the instructions on how to enter. Contest runs until September 24, 2015 (which just so happens to be my kid’s birthday).

Good Luck!!!

Desiree
