CALITRIPPIN’ DAY 2: Preview Night!

With registration not starting until 3:30 and the Preview Night exhibit hall doors not opening until 6pm, my family and I had a bit of downtime today before all the impending Comic Con craziness.   I decided to record my July Ipsy Bag video on my hotel balcony.

CALITRIPPIN’ DAY 1: Goodbye, NYC! Hello, San Diego!

COMIC CON: Preview Night!

My family and I made it to San Diego safely late yesterday afternoon. After checking into our room at the Mariott, we all went to Ralph’s, the nearby grocery store and stocked up on ramen, fruit, and sandwich ingredients for the next couple of days.
