Our Appreciation for Matthew B. Roberts

I think we can all agree that there is one scene in Outlander Season 3 that we are all looking forward to seeing:  the reunion of Jamie and Claire after 20 years of separation.  This memorable scene takes place in Voyager, the third book of the Outlander series.  Many fans remember this moment by the finest of details, as the emotions of pain, loss, hope, love, and devotion could be felt in the beautiful imagery and narrative written by Diana Gabaldon.   Without question, we hope to see this reunion faithfully lifted from the book to the screen.  We could not have been happier when it was announced that Matthew B.

The Fashion Institute of Design and Merchandising Museum Store (FIDM) had an event entitled “A Morning in the Apothecary.”  At the event, there was a guest alchemist that spoke about the general medicinal usage of herbs within 18th century apothecaries.   We couldn’t wait to attend this event and learn more about this topic.  With trivia, giveaways, treats, and Master Raymond’s embroidered jacket being close at hand, we knew this would be an event to remember!

The Getty Center, located in Los Angeles, is a unique destination that was a must see! The architecture of the museum is as unique as the exhibits held inside. Before entering the museum, I first had to explore the Central Garden.  It can be described as a natural, living work of art that incorporates over 500 plant varieties that constantly change with the seasons.  A must see!
