One of my favorite aspects of attending conventions is getting to see all the various cosplay! Star Wars Celebration Orlando 2017 was no different from any other con with plenty of fun cosplays except, of course, they were all Star Wars focused.

Living in Los Angeles, I don’t normally get to see the drastic change from a cold winter to a warm spring. This particular winter has been a bizarre one though (hello, climate change!) with lots and lots of rain in LA resulting in much colder (and wetter) weather than you’d imagine for our usually year-round sunny city. I have noticed a return to warmer – and dryer – weather recently and hopefully it stays that way. LA people are just not cut out for the cold/rain – luckily I grew up in Florida so it doesn’t bother me.
The change in season brought more than just warmer weather and more sun, it also means a change in in our makeup and wardrobe. It’s time to put away those big winter coats and boots and time to start breaking out floral prints and pastels!

Wow, what a month!! I spent the first half in Australia and the second half working A LOT. Among all the work, however, were some really fun times including St. Patrick’s Day, my sister’s birthday, and Wonder Con! Expect to see some posts this month covering some of those things ^^
These last two months were a bit odd for the blog with so much going on in my personal life, but I’m hoping for a return to the old starting with this right on time Goals/Recap post. Despite a fighting exhaustion and depression this last week, I know God is working in my life and listening and answering my prayers. Things have been a bit overwhelming but it’s so clear that He’s got this, and I just need to let go of all my worrying and stress.
Due to being posted late, I only had two weeks to achieve my last set of goals but you know what? I nailed those goals! Keep reading to see how and to check out my April Goals!
As I mentioned in my Goals post, I spent the first half of this month in Australia! This was my first time visiting the Outback and my first time in several years traveling abroad so it was quite an experience!
Keep reading to see how I spent my first weekend in Sydney!
I’M BACKKKK!!! After nearly 2 relaxing weeks in Australia, I am back in the good ol’ US of A! I know this post is going up late in the month again, but I’ll balance it with just 4 short, hopefully somewhat easy March Goals. But first, let’s see how I did on my February Goals – keep on reading!
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.

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!
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.

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.
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!
I had so much doing the Merry Fictional Blog Challenge, I decided to do another geek centric tag – this time the Review of the Year Blog Tag by Dee from Princess Deia.
