    Star Wars Celebration Orlando: Exhibit Floor Fun

    Star Wars Celebration Orlando // The Geeky Fashionista

    My final day recap of Star Wars Celebration Orlando! Having spent the first two days camping in lines and attending panels, I had not once stepped foot onto the main floor to check out all the cool exhibitors and vendors. I decided for this last day, I would don my Han Solo cosplay (minus holster and blaster) and finally check out out the main floor. I was expecting to go it alone, but there was a pleasant surprise in store for me!

    May Goals + April Recap

     May Goals + April Recap // The Geeky Fashionista

    Wow! April FLEW by!! It’s not surprising considering everything that happened in it! As a result of so much going on though, unfortunately, my blog has suffered a bit, and I’ve fallen super behind in posting (as you can can see from this post going up on the 11th instead of the 1st as usual). I also feel like I’ve all but disappeared from social media.

    May looks to be even more busy personally with some HUGE life changes so I don’t think I’ll be able to catch up this month – although I certainly will try. I’ve beaten myself up a bit about being a bad blogger but I know real life comes first. Please bear with me as I try to balance everything and thank you all for reading!

    Now let’s check out what goals I’ve set for myself!

    Star Wars Celebration Orlando: The Last Jedi

    Star Wars Celebration Orlando // The Geeky Fashionista

    In my last post, I recapped my first day of Star Wars Celebration Orlando. Today, I’ll be continuing on with my second day recap! While yesterday was somewhat of a disappointment due to not making it into the 40th Anniversary Celebration panel, that wasn’t the issue today. Learning our lesson, we easily made it into The Last Jedi panel.

    Keep reading for all the day’s highlights (and one unfortunate low) and don’t forget to catch up on my Day One post!

    Star Wars Celebration Orlando: 40th Anniversary

    Star Wars Celebration Orlando // The Geeky Fashionista

    I was planning to do just one Star Wars Celebration Orlando recap post but because of the sheer number of photos I took, especially on Sunday, I decided to split it up into three posts, one for each day I was there. This post will recap my first day of the convention which I spent pretty much doing one of two things: in panels or waiting in lines to get into those panels (or waiting in line to get a wristband to wait in the line for that panel…yes, that was a thing). 

    Despite all the line waiting though, the panels were amazing and well worth the wait for any Star Wars fan! Keep reading for my experience recap and be sure to check out my cosplay post from the event as well!

    10 Spring Essentials For Beauty & Fashion

    10 Spring Essentials 2017 // The Geeky Fashionista

    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!

    April Goals + March Recap

    April Goals + March Recap // The Geeky Fashionista

    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!

    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!

    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!
