The Bodhi Tree House Grand Opening – Miami

IMG_4872

A couple weeks ago I was fortunate enough to attend the grand opening of a new holistic store in Wynwood, The Bodhi Tree House. It was tucked away in some warehouse space, but I was absolutely blown away when I walked inside. It really looked like you were in a treehouse. It was like something out of a Wes Anderson movie mixed with a little bit of magic. It’s impossible not to feel serene and at peace while in the tree house, and everything they offer is so up my alley.

Crystals and mysticism have become a big part of my life for the past year, and I loved being in such a spiritual healing environment. Naturally, a packed grand opening party doesn’t lend itself to too much calm, but I can’t wait to visit soon and actually shop and look into some of their classes. I also loved that they had a little cafe in the back of the store offering healthy treats. I was able to enjoy crystal-infused water for the first time, which was pretty neat.

What I Wore: Earl Jeans Brunch

IMG_4623

A couple of weeks ago, I got the chance to attend a blogger brunch hosted by the lovely Netty of The Fashionable ESQ. We’ve been friends since high school and although we don’t see each other all the time, we always make it a point to support each other and our endeavors, and I absolutely love that. Plus, we start exactly where we left off every time we spend time together, which is always the hallmark of a true friendship. She is working with Earl Jeans, and they were wonderful enough to send all attendees some great pieces to wear while Love is Blind provided the absolutely delicious eats and tasty cocktails (that I could not enjoy – wah).

Now entering my 7th month of pregnancy, I was thrilled that this embellished top fit, and complemented my new maternity jeans from Old Navy so well. It also felt great to rock a heel (in the form of a wedge) for the day after schlubbing it in sandals for so long. I decided to pair this look with some Doctor Who elements, which tied in perfectly with the dark blue tones. Overall, it felt nice to dress up and spend some girl time with favorites and make some new friends in the process.

Florida Supercon

Last week, I shared my Florida Supercon cosplay with you all, but I want to share everyone else’s amazing cosplay with you all this week. Honestly, I was so happy to see an increase in the quantity (& quality) of cosplay this year at Supercon. I’m proud that my little, at times, judgmental and superficial city is embracing their geek side. Way to go, Miami! {image heavy post}

Last month, Geek Girl Brunch Miami hosted its second brunch and the ladies chose Sherlock as the theme. The Local House in Miami Beach was nice enough to host our event, and we even had a special surprise for all our brunchettes: free mini-manicures with Sherlock-themed nail art! Overall, it was a really great morning and I absolutely love how much our girls get along! If you are in the area, definitely sign up – we have so many fun events planned this summer and we’d love to have you join!

What I Wore: Free Comic Book Day

I know it’s been a couple of weeks since Free Comic Book Day, but I hope all of you were able to participate and have a great time! I’m a little embarrassed to say that our favorite local comic book shop, Tate’s, had such an enormous line for free comics that we opted to just spend money in-store instead! We got some great toys, books and art, and I was even able to leave some Geek Girl Brunch flyers behind! Overall, it was a really great day and such an appropriate time to sport my new Harry Potter polo from 1138 Clothing.

This adorable top is often paired with a custom made house skirt, but my expanding mid-section did not allow me to pick up a matching skirt. All is well though. This keeps me and Luna open to all houses. ;)
