In case you haven't heard. Her Universe has started a publishing division and I am excited!! 

NEW YORK, NY – October 13th, 2015 – Groundbreaking fangirl fashion company, Her Universe, and its founder, Ashley Eckstein, announced Saturday in a special panel at New York Comic Con that the company is expanding its reach by launching a new publishing program under an imprint called Her Universe Press. The imprint will build its readership on the company’s wide audience of fans and provide new and aspiring female writers the chance to see their original work professionally published. Focusing on the sci-fi and fantasy genres, the imprint will publish fiction and non-fiction for all age ranges with an emphasis on the tween, young adult market. Her Universe Press will be seeking to publish female authors who write empowering stories with positive messages and a focus on strong female protagonists. Each book will be marketed and promoted by Her Universe and by Ashley Eckstein personally through social media, events and promotions. Titles by Her Universe Press will be available through major booksellers, such as Barnes and Noble and, as well as on eBooks through Audible and iTunes. The first two books will be released spring/summer 2016.

More stories from females writers in the Sci-Fi and Fantasy genre is what I need! It's not only for me but for Lilli too. She's obsessed with reading and I want to give her everything to read. She started to read Moving Target a Princes Leia Adventure and was really enjoying it. She went back to her mother's and I would let her take the book. She wants more of those kinds of books but with female leads so yup, super excited for Her Universe Press. 

One of the first books to be released was announced and I love the premise of it. I also think it will be something Lilli will love to  read. I just need to get around to ordering it. And while I was on amazon pre order page, I deiced to attempt my hands at an every day cosplay of the young girl on the cover. 

  1. It was hard trying to find a two different shades of green shirt but I really love the sweater I managed to unearth. The price point, not so much. 
  2. Capris are not in season right now but of course you can find almost everything on amazon. 
  3. I didn't know pink flats were something I wanted until I made this outfit. 
  4. For the heart which is on her sweater, I found the glitter heart brooch and for the hair barette, I found one made out of LEGO pieces, both from Etsy. 
  5. I found these really cute pink stud earrings and thought they matched really well with the flats.
  6. Did you guys know emoji jewelry was a thing? I didn't until I decided to search for it. So in honor of the smiley face on the cover, a heart eyes emoji ring
I had fun creating this outfit and I really can't wait to get this book. In case you were curious, here's a description of WeirdEST:

Imagine having superpowers that physically manifest your most embarrassing emotions. 
Veronica McGowan is a typical, unremarkable, average thirteen-year-old. And this is the bane of her existence. Desperate to be an “Est”—cutest, smartest, funniest—Veronica bumbles her way through 8th grade, never truly being herself for fear of rejection. Being a teenager is hard enough without the whole demoralizing world of Pearce Middle School knowing how you really feel. And nothing could be worse than everyone discovering how lame you really are. Or so she thinks….

One night, Veronica plots a way to become cool, wishing something—anything—about her would change, making her an “Est.” The next morning, Veronica wakes up for another woeful day of teenage anonymity, only to make a mortifying discovery—her strongest emotions physically manifest themselves in weird ways!

She belches fire when she’s angry, dark clouds soak her with rain when she’s sad, and she grows a protective turtle shell when she’s frightened. But worst of all, whenever she daydreams about her biggest crush, Veronica is bombarded by giggly, cutesy, floating hearts! Yep. That’s worse than being lame. For once, Veronica longs to be a wallflower. But Veronica’s emotions are on a roller-coaster ride, and her powers are running haywire. 

It looks like Veronica has finally become an “Est.” But who would ever want to be—the weirdest?!

Have a great weekend!!
