While doing my weekly Target run (who am I kidding, I go about once a day), I stumbled on a treasure trove of Stranger Things merchandise. If you are like me, you are beyond stoked for the new season to premiere this week, so I figured I would share all the goodies with you all here.
All these great styles are also available in plus sizing.
Wanna go shopping? Have fun.
I think I should have earned some sort of geeky fashion blogger badge by managing to not buy one item (although that 11 sweatshirt has really been calling to me since I saw it).
I have such big news and it is so exciting. I AM A DISNEYWORLD ANNUAL PASSHOLDER.
Who knew that this Universal loving soul would go #Disneyside.
Well, I did. Naturally. I think I’ve expressed how crazy my Disney love used to be when I was younger. I even wanted to work for Disney when I was a kid being an animator (I used to draw. A lot.). I chose going to Disney with my closest friends over having a quinces and my 21st birthday was Stitch themed (F growing up, amirite?).
But this right here is like a level up. I was a pass holder for Universal but literally the second I became one, I got pregnant so that was all over. This is the first time I feel like an elite member of a theme park and I am so absolutely excited to take advantage of it. The moment Luna was born I knew I wanted her to be a Disney kid. I grew up on Disney and I can honestly say that it molded me and taught me a lot of great things. The most important: to dream. I love Disney’s message and although I can have my gripes here and there, I am a huge supporter of the Mouse. So the love was reborn when she came into the picture.
And here we are.
Look forward to a lot of fun Disney style posts in the year to come, and a whole lot of magic.
I’m not going to lie. The past few weeks have been real difficult over on the Melificent side of the world. Lets not even touch on all the current events unfolding that have both simultaneously broken my heart and angered me down to my very core. Of course, when I put my situation next to all that, I am eternally grateful to be alive, healthy and surrounded by love. But guys. Sometimes momming ain’t easy. And it takes a village. And, well. Some of us don’t have that village. So it’s been lots of hustling on the job side, while balancing all our to-do’s and being there for little Luna. This mom is exhausted.
I had been complaining that I wasn’t looking very cute lately, as I have been leaning towards more of the mom uniform and less of the fashion blogger. But, this past weekend I decided to blend them both. And what do you know? You really can find comfort and style while running after a toddler. Who knew?
Last weekend was the first time that I attended a Geek Girl Brunch Miami event as a brunchette, and not an officer. Whoa.
It elicited a lot of feels that were constantly contradicting each other: happiness, relief, sadness, regret, etc. Lets face it, it’s not easy to walk away from something you absolutely love, no matter how much you know you need to. Something I can say I feel with 100% certainty is pride. From the outside, this organization may seem very silly and immature, but it is very important. It made a lot of ladies feel like they were accepted for the first time, free of judgement. They could be themselves in a safe environment. And I will always be proud and humbled to know that I was a part of creating that in my city.
With those heavy feels aside, our brunch was 90’s themed, and I decided to go as my number one favorite 90’s geek queen: Daria. Without even knowing, one of my good friends (that I wouldn’t have if it wasn’t for Geek Girl Brunch) ended up dressing up as Jane. Kismet. Who else says leggings like Quinn and immediately imagines their eye popping out of its socket when they are super frustrated like Daria’s dad? Anyone? Just me? Cool.
I survived Hurricane Irma with minimal damage (thank God!), but I still do not have Internet access, or in turn, TV. That means I can’t blog as regularly as I used to and have to travel to a local Starbucks to do so (that goes for work too). I’m also very behind on all things pop culture. But we are safe and no other storms look to be threatening us (peace out, Maria!), so all is good. There are a lot of fun things coming up in the next few months, so I’m excited to be able to share them all with you.
For now, enjoy all the things I have been coveting, but having to refrain from purchasing in lieu of hurricane supplies.
Wizardry + Witchcraft palette; I am more than fully aware that I am behind on the Storybook Cosmetics trend, but I wasn’t sure if their makeup was just a collector’s piece or if they were actually wearable. After watching several reviews on YouTube, I can say that I am beyond impressed with this palette. It’s beautifully pigmented and perfect for the fall. Way to go, triplets!
Weird Mom Club tee; I haven’t gotten excited about a brand in a long time the way I am about the Weird Mom Club. Nicole has perfectly captured what it is like to not be the run of the mill mother in a sea of normality. I often feel like an outcast with my tattoos and general style whenever at a parenting event, but this little shop has made me realize I am not alone. I’m currently obsessed with getting this ringer tee. Are you a weird mom too? Check out Nicole’s awesome products!
Rainbow dress; I’m always on a constant hunt for adorable clothes. Lately, I don’t get much of a chance to wear anything cute (I lament about this often on my IG stories), thus the lack of outfit posts on the blog, but it doesn’t stop me from scouring the net for them. This dress immediately caught my eye as it looks comfy enough to work with my mommy lifestyle, especially paired with a cute pair of sneakers or espadrilles. Score!
Avada Kedavra Satchel; If something was ever on brand, this little satchel sure is! I became completely obsessed with it after seeing CritiqueGeek sporting it on her IG. It also has a matching wallet because BoxLunch clearly hates me and wants all my money. It would be absolutely perfect for my wizarding anniversary trip in November and has instantly flown to the top of my wish list.
