    My 27th Birthday Wishlist

    Nerdy Birthday Wishlist
    Less than 2 weeks until my 27th birthday?? Whaaa–?? Where has the year – no, YEARS gone?? I can barely wrap my head around the fact that I’m in my “mid-twenties” – it just seems too crazy! When did I become a “grown up?”

    Every year, the calendar indicates I get older, but I certainly don’t FEEL any older. Okay, my metabolism is pretty much shot and yeah, I’ve got a lot of health issues I’m dealing with but mentally I don’t feel older. Just check out the things on my birthday wishlist. ^^

    Nerd Out 1 Year Anniversary Party

    Nerd Out App 1 Year Anniversary

    Sincere apologies to Elle on the supreme lateness of this post! I was invited to cover the Nerd Out 1 Year Anniversary Party, and if my health already putting me behind on posts wasn’t bad enough, I lost this entire post after writing it up. As you can imagine, it was beyond frustrating. You’ve already heard it a couple times now and it will probably be my motto this month as I try to catch up on last month’s posts but….better late than never, right?

    Last month, I attended the wonderfully fun and geeky 1 year anniversary party for Nerd Out at The Perky Nerd in Burbank and what a party it was! Read on for all the nerdy details!

    September Goals + August Recap

    September Monthly Goals
     
    Last month certainly had its ups and downs. but I am super excited for September! Why? Because fall, of course! Fall is my favorite season AND it means my birthday is right around the corner! ^^
     
    Before I recap how I did with my August goals, here’s a quick life update… Sorry it might be a bit of a downer, but I’ll keep it brief.
     
    Despite my best efforts, I’ve gotten quite behind on my blogging. If you keep up with my posts you probably already know, but I’ve been having health issues for the last several months. I had been getting better, but this last month, it took a step backwards and my struggle with chronic pain, nausea, and depression has been getting the better of me. 
     
    I’m currently home in Florida with my family for a few days. I’ve, luckily, been feeling a bit better since I’ve been here and even managed to make it out to the Universal theme parks and go flying with my dad! Today, I’m seeing a neurologist and hoping to hear something good.
     
    As you might’ve guessed, I didn’t too hot on my August goals. It is, by far, been my worst month in terms of goals accomplished.
     
    This month, I only gave myself 5 total September goals because I really want to focus on these 5 things. I really hope all of them will be completed in the next monthly recap. We shall see! But first, let’s see how just how bad August was…

    San Diego Comic Con 2016 Saturday Recap

    SDCC Hall H Line Marvel

    Saturday

    I’m almost done with all my San Diego Comic Con 2016 recaps – yay!! This one I’ve been sort of putting off a bit because I’m still a little sore about it. Day Three aka Saturday was a bittersweet day for my group and I. It was the one day we would all be together, and we all went into the day super excited for a long day of exciting panels within Hall H. However, due to a dire mistake made my line management, our dreams were crushed, and we endured the longest wait of our lives and vowed never to wait for Hall H ever again…okay, that’s a little dramatic, but it was kind of a dramatic day.

    Read on to find out what went down (don’t worry, there’s still a happy ending).

    Ole Henriksen Vox Box Unboxing + Review

    Ole Henriksen VoxBox Review

    Today I am sharing my long overdue unboxing and review of the Ole Henriksen Influenster VoxBox!

    I was super excited when I was found out that I’d be receiving this box as I’ve had my eye on some Ole Henriksen products for a while but have hesitated to purchase any due to not knowing if the products would be worth their high price tag. In my VoxBox, I received three deluxe samples to try out: the Truth Serum Collagen Booster, Sheer Transformation, and Power Bright. Are they worth purchasing? Read on to find out!

    San Diego Comic Con 2016 Friday Recap

    Comic Con 2016 Friday Recap

    Friday

    Today I am finally sharing my San Diego Comic Con 2016 Friday recap! If you haven’t already read my Preview Night or Thursday posts, be sure to check them out to get caught up on my SDCC adventures! Without further adieu, let’s jump right in!

    Having turned in rather early the night before, I was super excited to get a good night’s sleep and wake up nice and early for a full day of amazing panels. As you can see on my con schedule, I had quite a full morning planned with some of my most anticipated panels (Cosplay Makeup, Geek Branding) of the entire convention. Of course, my body just had to go on the fritz that morning. For those new to the blog, I’ve had a lot of health issues over the past several months causing me to quit my law office job, stop attending classes, not drive, and for a period, unable to leave my bed. Praise God that I’m obviously doing much better now and for the most part can go back to a normal life, but I still suffer from daily (worst in the morning) abdominal pain and occasional chest pain and nausea. This particular morning, the abdominal pain was relentless, and I knew no matter how much I really wanted to see those panels or how much I tried to suck it up and bear the pain, there was just no way I was leaving my hotel room anytime soon.

    August Goals + July Recap

     August Goals
     
     What, it’s August already? Of course, it is. I can’t even act surprised that July flew by because that’s how it is every year thanks to San Diego Comic Con. It’s been over a week since it ended and somehow I STILL feel exhausted. -__- July wasn’t a great month for my goals, Comic Con really did take over, and I didn’t get to tend to my blog (or life lol) as much as I’d hope. Here’s hoping I can do a little catching up this month with my August goals.

    San Diego Comic Con 2016 Thursday Recap

    San Diego Comic Con Thursday

    Thursday

    Today I’m sharing my Thursday aka Day One of San Diego Comic Con 2016 recap! After an amazing Preview Night, I was super psyched for the con to officially begin. I had my overly ambitious schedule prepared with first choice and backup panels and couldn’t wait to jump right into the craziness.

    The first panel on my list to check out was in the massive Hall H where the movie studios usually show all of their exclusive footage. This is also where Marvel, Game of Thrones, and The Walking Dead panels take place and, thus, some fans camp out to upwards 40+ hours just to get inside. Luckily, there was no need for that today. It was a pretty low-key schedule for Hall H that day so I was able to walk right into the first panel, DreamWorks. This panel would be one of the few times the majority of my friends (minus my sister) would all be together as we all had very different things we wanted to do and see – which I think is one of the great things about Comic Con – there’s just about something for everyone!

    San Diego Comic Con 2016 Preview Night

    SDCC Preview Night

    SDCC Preview Night

    Sigh. San Diego Comic Con 2016 is officially over and now we wait another 359 days for it all to begin again. This was my tenth consecutive year attending SDCC and while I wouldn’t say it was my “best” year as it certainly had its lows (ahem, Hall H Line – you’ll hear more about that later), it was definitely memorable. 

    Following a (sort of) blogging tradition of mine and to fulfill one of my July Goals, I’ll be recapping each day of the con over the next two weeks (it takes me a while to go through the hundreds of photos I take) starting with Preview Night aka Day Zero of Comic Con.
