Every year I get asked what I want to do for my birthday and every year, I completely dread that day. I hate the attention, the pressure of having a “great day” and I have never enjoyed being sung to. Usually I go into hiding around this time and thank goodness for Memorial Day because my birthday usually falls over that 3 day period, but this year I decided to really get away from things by spending my bday at Disneyland! With all I have to celebrate, I was feeling incredible grateful to be present, healthy, and I couldn’t wait to just go there and do whatever, eat whatever, and have a good time.
Speaking of good health, I just had my 3 month check up yesterday and I’m happy to say that all is well! I was actually quite nervous going into the appointment (going to the doctors pretty much every 2 weeks for 6 months will do that to you) and I was even dreading that moment I knew I had to step on that scale for my “official” weight! Eek! Well, I’m happy to report I lost about 9 pounds since my last visit (HOORAY!), my blood work was normal, and my oncologist thinks I’m handling my current medication pretty well. I felt such a huge relief that I just wanted to celebrate for the rest of the day by wearing something super upbeat like this Guardians of the Galaxy inspired outfit! :D I know this is one of many check ups in my lifetime, but for me, it was the first step towards the future.
With Game of Thrones season 6 in full swing and last week’s episode having some “tears of joy” worthy moments, it’s only fitting that today’s post be a fun tribute to the show. I’m not going full on medieval or anything, but I found that when I was putting together this outfit, each piece I chose became more and more themed. For example, I love that this high slit tunic reminds me of Brienne of Tarth or that these leggings could belong in the realm of the Three-eyed-raven. And doesn’t this cuff remind you of our favorite Mother of Dragons?? Anyhow, I’m super excited about this season so far and can’t wait to see what happens! Hopefully more good than bad, but then again you never know with this show… And if you’re itching for more Game of Thrones fashion, check out Valentino’s fall show, which almost looks straight out of the show!
With Marvel churning out so many super hero movies these days, I have to admit, it’s been a while since I’ve been this excited to see one. To be honest, I was actually starting to lose interest on the Iron Man, Thor, Avengers, and Captain America fronts. Sad, I know! Hands down, my favorite Marvel movie is still Guardians of the Galaxy, followed by almost anything X-Men (so excited for Age of Apocalypse!!). However, word has been getting around and I’ve been hearing nothing but great things about Captain America: Civil War. Hopefully it lives up to the hype and I can’t wait to see it this weekend! Seeing as I’ve got both sides covered on the fashion front, it’s time to decide – whose side will I be on??
You know what today is… it’s Star Wars Day! Sure, you could celebrate like I am here by wearing your favorite Star Wars item, but with Star Wars practically everywhere these days, you’re bound to find something new to buy or else something fun to do in order to take today to the next level. Lucky for you, I’ve been keeping my eye out for worthy Star Wars events and put a list together just for the occasion. May the 4th be with you! Continue reading
With all that’s happened to me these past 6 months or so, it’s crazy to think about what I was doing just one year ago. I was definitely at a high, having just gotten accepted into the Her Universe Fashion Show and I had just started material shopping for my “She is Groot” dress. Finishing that dress was quite a milestone for me and it’s crazy to think how much has happened since then. This past weekend was coincidentally the deadline to submit designs for the 2016 Her Universe Fashion Show and a lot of people have asked me if I submitted another design. Well, the short answer is no, BUT that doesn’t mean that I won’t be making something fun to wear to the show anyways! This week also marks the release of Her Universe’s new Force Awakens collection, Continue reading
I’ve been in the mood for geeky accessories these days and the timing couldn’t be more perfect with Loot Crate’s last bundle of Level Up goodies. In their “versus” crate was this awesome Batman vs. Superman necklace (I’m just wearing the Batman one here) and it couldn’t go better with this floral Batman cap I picked up from Wondercon. Caps have kind of become a staple to me, especially on the weekends when I can dress super casual, so I’m looking forward to growing my collection! Also, be sure to use my code (after the jump) to save 10% on your own geeky clothing crate!
