Trailer for Suffragette the Movie


I'm really looking forward to this movie. I'm happy to share the trailer and peek at the movie posters.

Of course, I hope we get a film one day about Ida B. Wells and all the women of color who fought in the US-based suffrage movement.

Review: Personalized Cookie Cuttters


I love to bake. Cupcakes, cakes, and some breads are my thing. And come Christmas time it is all about the cookies! Especially cut out cookies that I make using a recipe my mom treasure from a cookbook that she got when she was a little girl. The making of the dough, the rolling out, cutting and then decorating is like a meditation on love. Yes this feminist loves to bake!


That is why I jumped at the chance to test out a personalized cookie cutter from Cookie Cutter Kingdom. I scrolled through all their options and decided on the doxie. Now this is where I found a shortcoming...You are limited to one line with 10 characters. I really wanted a #365FeministSelfie cookie cutter, alas. This is when I thought, hmmm...do I go full out egotistic and get a "Veronica" cookie cutter? Nah...Let's go with Feminista!


As you can see from the photos, the cookies turned out great. I will say that after a few cookies, dough did get stuck in the lettering, so I had to grab a toothpick and clean it out. But it wasn't too complicated. It may also be more an issue of me pushing too hard.

Overall, I really liked my cookie cutter. I'm looking forward to finding lots of excuses to whip up a batch. Feminist bake sales, y'all!

AND...I'm happy to say that I can share with my readers a code for 25% off!

Use "VIVA25" when you order and save 25%

The doxie cookie cutter starts at $5.50 and goes up to $7.00 for the larger cutter. Don't wait too long because the code is good until September 30, 2015. If you get a cookie cutter, post a picture! I want to see what everyone picks out.
