New Teen Wolf and Supernatural necklaces!
One of UnicornEmpire’s bad habits is that she designs things and then doesn’t finish them. Well we finally nagged her into finishing her Teen Wolf moon necklace and Supernatural angel necklace.
The photo of the Teen Wolf moon necklace really doesn’t do it justice. It’s a shiny metallic silver acrylic that I really love.
The Supernatural angel necklace is a deconstructed angel sigil surrounded by wings. The acrylic is a slightly-translucent smokey black acrylic that gives it a ethereal quality that I really like. My personal nickname for this necklace is the fallen angel.
As always, you can find both at UnicornEmpirePrints.
Gwendoline Christie is the actress for Brienne of Tarth in Game of Thrones. She stands at 6 feet 3 inches tall and took swordfighting, horseriding, and stagefighting lessons for her part, as well as gaining 14 pounds of muscle, to accurately portray Brienne. (x)
She was also terrified of cutting her hair because she’d spent her life believing it was one of the only things that would make people see her as feminine despite her height. In an interview with TV Guide she said:
I struggled for a long time with [cutting] my hair, but then I’m grateful for the opportunity to realize that femininity doesn’t have to come from hair or any of those traditional female archetypes of appearance, So, that’s been exciting actually. I can’t speak with any kind of authority whatsoever because I’m just an actor and I only have my opinions, but I do think it’s really refreshing to have a woman depicted on a mainstream TV show that doesn’t obey typical aesthetics of females and the way they have been portrayed in the past. And I’m really excited to be portraying one of those women. And I hope that her popularity signals a greater expansion of people’s views about men and women and that gender types can be more flexible.
I didn’t know I was in love with this woman until I saw this post

“…Take a look, it’s in a book, a Reading Rainbow.”
I loved Reading Rainbow when I was a kid. Mostly because my parents were Trekkies and I thought it was pretty cool that Lt. Commander Geordi La Forge sometimes got his sight back and celebrated his recovery by reading books.
I used to be an avid reader. I’d finish two or three novels a week and when I wasn’t reading, I was writing. Then I started college and instead of novels I was reading text books and writing research papers. By grad school, reading and writing were both chores. They were something that I had to grind through so I could get to something more enjoyable.
I’m not in school anymore and I realized that i still treat reading and writing like chores. I read news articles, blog posts and fanfiction but even then I skim through them as fast as I can, searching for the important bits of information the way I’d search a general article for the information I needed for the next exam.
I miss reading for pleasure. I miss books. Real books that you can hold in your hand and drop on your face when you fall asleep reading them.
So I bought a book last night and I am ridiculously excited about it.
I feel like I would feel a lot less depressed about things if I could just beat this fucking level of candy crush.
