Hey Howl Pack

I’m Mae Polzine, a lifestyle and pop culture blogger, who resides in Minnesota with my sassy terrier mix, Pixie Bug. I started this blog to be a place where I could be creative and share things that I love. I stream over on Twitch around three times a week, with some stream highlights and VODs posted on my YouTube Channel. Join our Discord to chat with other pack members. Lastly, I am now offering digital art services for Twitch emotes and sub badges over on my shop page.

Thoughts on A Touch of Darkness (Persephone Saga, Book 1) by Scarlett St. Clair

Thoughts on A Touch of Darkness (Persephone Saga, Book 1) by Scarlett St. Clair

I have been fascinated by Greek mythology since I was in high school. One of the stories that intrigued me was the tale of Hades, the God of the Dead/Underworld, and Persephone, the Goddess of Spring. So, when I learned there was a modern retelling of their story by Scarlett St. Clair called A Touch of Darkness, I wanted to check it out.

Thoughts After Reading of The Crown of Gilded Bones by Jennifer L. Armentrout

Thoughts After Reading of The Crown of Gilded Bones by Jennifer L. Armentrout

The third installment of the Blood and Ash Series by Jennifer L. Armentrout was released called The Crown of Gilded Bones. I read it in a day as I had with the other two books in the series. I could not stop turning the pages in this book. Like the previous books, when I did my review on them, I’m going to be sharing spoilers. I have a lot of thoughts and don’t think I can adequately at this time do a proper review. I will give this book a rating of 4.25 out of 5 stars. In case you want to skip my thoughts to avoid the spoilers. It was good, the worldbuilding was spectacular of how things were handled. And I can’t wait for the next installment.

Recreation of MadeYewLook’s Bloody Mary Makeup Look

Recreation of MadeYewLook’s Bloody Mary Makeup Look

I let Discord choose which MadeYewLook body paint tutorial I should follow/recreate over on Twitch. Bloody Mary won, so this was the final result. The only thing edited in the photos is my eyes as I don’t have pure white contacts. The rest I did using body paint and eyeshadow.

Book Review: Dark Harmony by Laura Thalassa (The Bargainer Series, Book 3)

Book Review: Dark Harmony by Laura Thalassa (The Bargainer Series, Book 3)

Dark Harmony by Laura Thalassa is the final book in the Bargainer Series, though there is a novella called The Emperor of Evening Stars which I do plan on reading after this. I don’t think I’ll write a post about it as I normally don’t when it comes to novellas. But there’s no way I’m not reading it. I want to see things from Desmond’s POV. I don’t know all of what’s going to be in the novella, but Desmond is such a romantic I need to read it at least once. But this post is not about the novella, I’m going to be sharing my thoughts on the final book of the series.

Steampunk Inspired Makeup

Steampunk Inspired Makeup

This month I’m not really streaming as work is kind of hectic, but my goal is even if I don’t stream I’m still going to do the weekly theme. This week’s was Steampunk (which I picked) and I LOVE how this came out. I was going to have a corset that matched for a full body look… but I got the wrong size. So instead, I still have the shoulder piece on but made the leather collar out of body paint to go with the makeup look of cogs, gears, and clock pieces.

Book Review: A Strange Hymn by Laura Thalassa (The Bargainer Series, Book 2)

Book Review: A Strange Hymn by Laura Thalassa (The Bargainer Series, Book 2)

Continuing on with The Bargainer Series by Laura Thalassa is A Strange Hymn. I immediately started this book after finishing Rhapsodic because I needed to know more. Is the Thief of Souls really gone? We know Karnon was the one behind it to some extent but the women didn’t wake up. Also, Callie now has wings, scales, and claws I’m very curious to see what’s going to become of those. Does their appearance unlock more power, or something else? I have so many questions… which is exactly why I dropped straight into A Strange Hymn to find out what happened next.
