I love how diverse geek fashion has developed for women these past years. We now have so many ways to represent our fandoms and to do so in whatever our unique clothing style might be. Do you like to keep things casual with tank and skater dresses? Check. Do you want something classy and sophisticated with a touch of lace? Check. How about something just subtly geeky? Check. What about something full on geeky and/or could almost be considered cosplay? Check.
It really is a great time to be a geek lady!
Today, I’m going to share with you some of my favorite geek DRESSES. As a little girl, I was lucky to find a fitted women’s geek tee – oh, how I would’ve gone crazy for a pretty geek dress like these!
There were so many wonderful dresses, I decided to do a Part Two to this post which will be up tomorrow.
Yes, I’m doing a Fall Essentials post in November! Some of you might think I’m a bit late for a post like this…shouldn’t I have had it up in September or October the latest? Probably >.<
However, living in Los Angeles, it hasn’t felt anything like fall up until this month. I could’ve faked it earlier with a candle and something pumpkin, but I’ve been longing for that cooler weather that would finally allow me to break out the flannel and scarves! Well, now that that weather has come, I am living in a fall wonderland and I don’t want it to end (and knowing LA, most of our winter will probably feel like fall and I’m okay with that)!
So in the spirit of finally celebrating fall, I rounded up a list of my top 10 fall essentials. All these things either remind me of fall or make fall just that much better!
Can you believe that Halloween was exactly one week ago? I sure can’t! With all the Thanksgiving and Christmas decorations especially out in full force in every store, Halloween feels like a memory. Some may say that a week is too late for a Halloween recap but to them I say boo! (Get it, like a ghost?) Okay, so that was lame, but late or not, I wanted to share my Happy Halloween experience with you all along with some silly photos!
Can this year just chill out for a second? It’s going by wayyy too quickly!! How is it seriously November?? Anyone else sad that October is already over? It’s my favorite month so maybe I’m a bit biased.
November does have plenty of it’s own perks though and it does mean that Christmas is that much closer so I guess I can’t be too heart broken. A few things I’m looking forward to in November: my dad visiting, Doctor Strange, my boyfriend’s birthday, Cyber Monday deals (no Black Friday for me) and, of course, Thanksgiving (and Thanksgiving food!). Yep, it’s going to be a
good great month.
This is a sponsored post, however, all opinions are mine.
As some of you might know from reading my blog or from following me on social media, I’ve been dealing with a variety of health issues including chronic pain for most of this year. Not going to lie, I’ve definitely struggled with depression and my self-image as I’ve gained a lot of weight. Honestly, most days I don’t feel pretty, and I’m usually super overwhelmed from being behind in my plans and goals due to the unpredictability of my health. I’ve found several things help when I’m feeling particularly down such as turning to friends, prayer, watching anime (lol), and every now and then just a good ole day at the spa or salon.
Halloween isn’t until Monday, but many of us (myself included) will be celebrating it over the weekend. Come the actual day, I’ll most likely want to take it easy and celebrate it in a low key way… such as watching some of my favorite Halloween TV episodes while I stuff my face with candy corn. Why not a movie, you ask? I’ve never been big on Halloween movies (besides Nightmare Before Christmas and Disney’s old school Halloweentown) and there’s just something about doing a little marathon of different shows that I enjoy. So without further adieu, read on for my Top 5 Must See Halloween TV Episodes!

Today I’m sharing with you what I wore for my birthday dinner earlier this month! Read on for more details!
For the last three years, Hot Topic and Her Universe have put on an amazing “geek couture” fashion show featuring designs from some incredibly talented aspiring designers. Every year, I want to so badly attend the show and every year something comes up that night preventing me. This year, I FINALLY was able to make it!! Read on to see experience attending the Hot Topic and Her Universe Fashion Show at San Diego Comic Con 2016!
Yay! I’m breaking my string of late Ipsy unboxing posts and posting this just a day after receiving it in the mail – go me! This month’s Halloween “Black Magic” themed bag is too cute! Read on to see what’s inside!

Okay, I know it’s now fall, but when you live in Los Angeles with it’s year round warm/hot weather, it can still feel like summer until November and even then… Just this past weekend the highs were still in the 90s! Crazy, right? I mean, I grew up in Florida so maybe not that crazy to me but still! Give me that sweater weather already! Until then, read on to check out my last “summer” outfit of 2016.
I’m not going to lie, September was a rough month. Fortunately, not due to health reasons. My health was actually doing quite well, strangely enough, despite all the emotional turmoil and distress I was under. Yes, once again, personal circumstances interfered with my blogging. I somehow did even worse this month in reaching my goals even though I cut them down from 10 to only 5 to help me focus. Yes, I’m disappointed, but I also know I did my best for what was going on in my life. As much as I love this blog, real life priorities come first. Luckily, things all worked out and I’m doing fine now.
Anyway…it’s October now and officially fall! My favorite month and favorite season – how can I not be excited!? I already had my birthday that happened on the 2nd which was AMAZING (post coming next week) and have already posted twice (this makes three times) within the first week so this month is off to a great start! I’m hoping the good times, (relatively) good health, and good blogging continues all season long!
I’m sticking with just 5 goals this month. We’ll see how I do and then maybe I’ll bring it back to 10 after that. I feel very optimistic that all these goals are attainable and hoping to see every one crossed off come the beginning of next month! Before I jump into these new goals, however, let’s go over September…it’s not going to be pretty.
