About my blog:

  • I started it on September 13, 2015.
  • The name came from my love of glitter and Heir of Fire, the third book in my then-favorite series, Throne of Glass.
  • It’s a combination of books and baking, two of my favorite pastimes. There might also be the occasional lifestyle post.
