Gail Has 24 Valentines Crushes?

I love the idea, Gentle Reader, of blogging a bit about my other valentines. Of course, there is the AB and Lilliput, but you know how much I love them. (And they do too, I suspect.)

No, instead I want to tell you my other loves ~ 24 of them, to be precise. The ones that brighten my day in less intimate ways, as it were. These are loves I can share with you, Gentle Reader, in hopes that you find one or two loving, yourself. So here we go!

3 Blogger Crushes

3 Author Crushes

3 Fashion Crushes

3 Food Crushes 

3 Household Crushes

3 App Crushes

3 Business Crushes
3 Beauty Crushes

Special mention goes to...

Any gif showing inter-species affection or a cat beating up a dog/baby. Don't ask me why, I just find it hilarious. Secretly, I am both more corny and more cruel than you would expect. Or not?

Book News:
So Many Books, So Little Time says of Curtsies & Conspiracies, “I adore the madcap world that Gail Carriger has created. A dirigible finishing school, highway men in top hats, vampire professors and mechanimals – I want to be a part of it.”
