When I'm not blogging beauty, I work in the publishing industry to pay my bills. Here are some blogs I've written in my working life. They are all language related and appear on Oxford Dictionaries' Oxford Words Blog (http://blog.oxforddictionaries.com/ or you can view all my articles here: http://blog.oxforddictionaries.com/author/ashley-wagner/)
Just Plutonic? Roman Gods and their relationship to the days of the week

I also like to bop around to music, especially at home. Here are some of my favourites.
Previous projects and websites:
An online shoppe for anime/j-pop related goods that I ran while I was in school and a student. No longer open and running, but was hosted on Geocities until that went defunct, but Reocities has resurrected parts of the site, so you can access some of it, here:
Sakura's Clow Cards
A fan website devoted to Card Captor Sakura, also resurrected on Reocities here: http://www.reocities.com/Tokyo/Dojo/9291/
Mini Fan Site for Hyde (from Japanese Rock group L'Arc~en~ciel)
Gah, this one is kinda embarrassing, but I kinda also like it since it's a part of who I am. This feels like forever ago, and was back in the days when I actually did everything in HTML myself!
