Call me old or call me uncool, but I’m completely not in tune with the music scene. I guess at some point in your adult life, you stop listening to new music, start saying stuff like “I can’t believe kids are listening to this stuff” and stick to music you listened to when you were younger. All things considered, I still somehow knew (thanks to social media) that Coachella was happening this past weekend. My friends have told me that Coachella is like the San Diego Comic Con of music – a huge festival, lots of exhibitors, and just like how people make the craziest costumes for SDCC, so is the fashion scene of Coachella.

No matter how many cons I have been to, I still never get tired of roaming the exhibit floor and checking out new booths. Wondercon had some great independent booths and as a huge Disney nerd, I was immediately drawn to Whosits and Whatsits. Yes, they have an awesome store name and yes, they have amazingly cute Disney inspired shirts! Robin Hood was actually one of my favorite Disney cartoons growing up and I have to admit I had a tiny crush on him too (can you have a crush on a fox?). I love the cleverness of this tee, especially the reference to the “oo-de-lally” song, which will now be stuck in my head all day. So if you’re a fan of this type of stuff like I am, be sure to keep an eye on their store as I’m sure they’ll be coming out with even more cool stuff in the future!
If there’s one thing about fashion, it’s that it can be so empowering. I love that wearing something can bring about so many emotions – feeling girly when you’re wearing a tulle skirt, tough as nails when you’re wearing motorcycle boots, or maybe even like a secret agent when you’re representing the Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. I love that this lightweight cardigan brings a mixture of ’50s school uniform flair while representing the team with a sweet logo on the back. I may not look as badass as the real guys, but it definitely makes me feel like I could kick some butt!
I am seriously in love with the Deadpool shirt I got from this month’s Level Up Your Style box – so much so that I’m going to give one away! Giveaway starts today on Instagram so don’t delay! You will receive a size small shirt, but it is pretty loose and could probably fit a medium too. You may also get some extra goodies so everyone wins! Details and rules below. Good luck!

Hopefully by now, most of you have heard of Loot Crate, what I can only describe as a “geeky subscription service”. The gist is that you pay a flat monthly fee and get an awesome box of geeky goodies once a month, which are also cleverly themed and hand selected. Well, they recently started a new subscription service that was right up my alley – a monthly box of geek clothing! Titled “Level Up Your Style“, I was immediately on board to do so and have been super excited every month to see what’s in store. Forget having to scour the internet for cool new stuff because now it just shows up at my door!! This month was their “dead” month and featured great items from The Walking Dead as well as Deadpool (which I have yet to watch :\). However, I immediately giggled when I opened this month’s package to find this adorable shirt filled with chibi Deadpools, Tacos, hot sauce, and did someone say CHIMICHANGA?? This shirt is so amazing that I will be giving one away on Instagram very soon, so keep an eye out!
Ever since I went to the 20th anniversary X-Files panel at SDCC almost three years ago, I was on the edge of my seat waiting for any sort of announcement for a 3rd movie or maybe even some new episodes. Well, those seeking the truth got our wish this year when Chris Carter gave us SIX brand new episodes (the finale being last night), giving us a just a tiny reminder of how awesome this show is. As a fan since the early ’90s, watching it live again brought me back to those late Friday nights where I would intensely watch the show alone, grasping on to every alien and government conspiracy as if I were also an FBI agent. And without the internet back then, Continue reading
Today marks a pretty special day for me as I am officially 3 weeks past my last chemo treatment! To explain the significance of “3 weeks”, my chemo regimen was every 3 weeks and it would usually take just about 3 weeks for my body to heal in between treatments. Which also meant by the time I started to feel a little more normal again, it was time for another treatment. BUT today is different since I have no more chemo!! :D :D :D When I was diagnosed 5 months ago, I couldn’t imagine going through all of this, nor did I think I even had the strength to.
