Hello everyone! My name is Allie and I’m starting a blog!

You don't say.

You don’t say.

It’s true, Ellen! (May I call you Ellen?) You see, I’m a scientist at heart, but I am also *gasp* female. And I like some girly, girly things…like bacteria, feminism, and not shaving.

What was that last one?

What was that last one?

Sorry, Ellen. Hang with me.  But for real, I really enjoy me some nail polish, perfume, eye makeup, good beer…but I feel like women are often discouraged from both being feminine and embracing traditionally “masculine” fields. Women in movies, tv shows, and books are portrayed as either beautiful…or smart. Never both (Remember, Hermione was described as “plain” in the books!). So I wanted to make a public space where I can share my love for both science AND girly shit more traditionally “feminine” things. 🙂

Thank you so much for reading, following along, or joining me on my blogging adventure!

Until next time, stay classy!

    Forget the world view of what woman should and should not be doing. Be whatever you can be and be the best you can at it. I have a granddaughter who excels in mathematics and people are always telling her to go into I say reach for the stars.

  2. Love!! I don’t shave my pits, and I run a beauty blog! This is going to sound like a lie but I am a professional trombonist (there are pics with me+bone on my blog I promise). So I get the whole traditionally male field, feminine spark attitude thing. I’m so glad you followed me so that now we can be in this together.
