Another late Ipsy post due to personal circumstances – sorry again, guys >.< The theme of this month’s September Ipsy Glam Bag was “Glamazon.” Read on to see what was inside my bag!
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. ^^
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?
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).
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!
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.
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!
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.
