    My Top 5 Favorite Films of 2016

    Top 5 Films of 2016 // The Geeky Fashionista

    Today, I’m sharing with you my Top 5 favorite films of 2016. I know everyone is talking about the Oscar nominated films, but despite living in LA where one has access to see pretty much any movie once it’s released, with my busy schedule, I really don’t see very many. I’ll see most of the big franchise ones with friends, but other than those, my film viewing is a bit limited. However, this year had quite a few franchise films and most of them were better than average so no complaints here. 

    Keep reading for my favorite films of 2016!

    February Goals + January Recap

    February Goals // The Geeky Fashionista
     
    Eh, better late than never – right? Without going into too much detail, this past January was rough. That’s an understatement actually, but I’m going to spare you the details as to not depress you. I’m still learning how to deal with everything and not get too overwhelmed. The reason this post is so late is because I decided to take a little break from blogging/social media to take some time for myself so I don’t implode. This included a quick trip to Idaho to get away from the big city for a bit which was quite lovely. 
     
    Ooh I do have a bit of happy, positive news! I’M GOING TO AUSTRALIA IN MARCH!!! I’m so excited!! I’ve always wanted to go and now I get to stay with a good friend there and hopefully relax and have a grand time.
     
    Despite a rocky January, I actually did pretty well with my goals! I actually accomplished all my blog goals (woot woot!) and almost all of my personal goals were partially done in some way! Seeing how I’m already half way into the month writing this post, I’m going to keep this month’s goals light. Read on to see what they are!

    Mystic Messenger Little Tokyo Cosplay Meetup

    Mystic Messenger Cosplay Meetup // The Geeky Fashionista

    If you’ve been following me for the past couple months, I’m sure you’ve seen me mention Mystic Messenger. It easily became my biggest new fandom of 2016. Well, last year, I went to my very first non-convention cosplay meetup. It was a gathering for Mystic Messenger fans to come together, cosplay as their favorite characters, buy merch, and hang out.

    10 Winter Essentials

    10 Winter Essentials // The Geeky Fashionista 

    Having spent most of my life in Florida, I haven’t really experienced a “true” winter complete with snow, ice, cold, and SNOW (did I say that twice?). Still, I always looked forward to “chilly” nights and getting to see my own breath in the air. I loved turning on the heat in the house, bundling up in blankets, and drinking hot beverages. I now live in Los Angeles and while the winters here are not much cooler than Florida, they are at least a lot less humid. This winter, however, I’ve been pretty excited by the unprecedented amount of rain in LA and the drop in temperatures (I’m talking low 40s). There’s still no snow but it’s “cold” enough that it actually feels like winter – at least for LA.

    Today, I’m sharing with you my Top 10 Winter Essentials! Whether you live somewhere with just “chilly” weather or you’re currently snowed in your house, these things should all make your winter a little cozier.

    2017 Golden Globes Best Dressed

    Golden Globes Best Dressed // The Geeky Fashionista

    Awards season is in full swing and you know what that means! It’s time for my annual red carpet Best Dressed lists! We’re starting things off with last Sunday’s Golden Globes ceremony where La La Land received a totally deserved record-breaking 7 wins! Seriously, if you haven’t seen this movie yet…Go. See. It. As for the fashion (because that’s what this post is about), I was really feeling a lot of the looks this year! There were more plunging necklines than I’ve ever seen at one show, but they were done very tastefully and different so it never seemed like we were seeing the same thing over and over again. Other trends we saw were lots of sparkle, metallics, and the color yellow.

    Keep reading to see my top 10 Best Dressed Golden Globes picks!

    Also be sure to check out my red carpet posts from past years.

    January Goals + December Recap

    January Goals and December Recap
     
    Happy New Year, everyone! Hope you all are enjoying 2017! I had a nice, relaxing time back home with my family in Florida for the holidays but now it’s time to jump right back into work!
     
    If you’ve followed my blog for any period of time, you might know that I’ve been dealing with chronic health issues for most of last year. Well, right before I left for the holidays, my doctor gave me an antibiotic to treat a bacterial overgrowth in my intestinal tract and I have been feeling MUCH better! I still had a persistent cold pretty much the entire trip BUT my nausea, migraine, and pain symptoms were MUCH, much lighter and my sleeping habits are almost normal again.
     
    This is all a huge blessing and answer to prayer and even though my health is still not 100%, it’s just so encouraging to finally have some kind of progress! I’m doing my follow-up with my doctor tomorrow and am hoping for more good news! ^^
     
    Overall, 2016 ended pretty well even if I only reached 2 out of my 7 goals – that’s gotta be my worst month yet! >.< My blog was a bit neglected, unfortunately, during a time that is usually the busiest for bloggers as I instead focused on my health, spending time with my family, and thinking about some big possible changes in the new year (if my health recovery pans out). I’ll cover more of this stuff in my 2017 Resolutions post so let’s move on to the topic of this post – this month’s goals and last month’s recap!
