    My 2016 Christmas Wishlist

    My 2016 Christmas Wishlist
    I can’t believe it’s only three weeks until Christmas! I’ve already finished up most of my Christmas shopping which makes me realize I’m probably putting this post up a bit too late to genuinely be useful to anyone (sorry, family!) as they too have probably already finished up most of their shopping…although, to give myself some credit, I actually think this is the earliest in December I’ve posted my Christmas wishlist in the 5+ years I’ve had this blog.

    Yes, I think I’ve made a Christmas Wishlist every year since 2010 and even though I’m at the age now where if I really want something, I can just go out and get it for myself instead of hoping to find it under the tree from Santa (although those days were magical and Santa really did spoil me as a kid), I want to keep this post tradition going and share with you all what my personal wish list items are for Christmas (or otherwise)!

    December Goals & November Recap

    December Goals & November Recap // The Geeky Fashionista

    The last month of 2016 is here and how quickly it came! I honestly can’t believe it’s already December! It really hasn’t hit me yet how fast this year has blown by. Maybe it’s because I’ve been sick and stuck in bed so much that I’m in this little bubble/limbo where if it weren’t for Mystic Messenger (lol), I wouldn’t know sometimes when one day ends and another begins.
     
    That’s a bit of a downer so let me bring it back up with some long-awaited good news regarding my health. On my last test, it looks like the doctors finally (after nearly 9 months) have a lead on a diagnosis and want to discuss treatment options on my next appointment. This has been a true answer to prayer. It’s been so difficult facing daily pain, nausea, and migraines without knowing why. And to finally have a “why” and to hear the word “treatment” is something I and loved ones have been hoping for all year. God is so good always!
     
    I completed 4 out of last month’s 9 goals. Considering how difficult of a month it was and also how close I got to reaching some of them, I am not disappointed in the slightest. This month I’m giving myself 7 goals – keep reading to see what they are!

    Best Geek Dresses – Part One

    Best Geek Dresses // The Geeky Fashionista

    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.

    10 Fall Essentials

    Fall Essentials

    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!

    What I Did For Halloween

    What I Did For Halloween

    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!

    November Goals & October Recap

    November Goals & October Recap

    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.

    Pamper Yourself with Groupon

    Pamper Yourself With Groupon

    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.
