Hatch Miami

IMG_5185

After a long time of contemplating it, I finally took the plunge and decided to participate as a vendor at a local fair. My fellow Geek Girl Brunch Miami officers got accepted as vendors into Hatch Miami, which is a fair targeted at supporting local women in the city. You had to be a woman to be accepted into the event, and when I decided to participate, not only as a Geek Girl Brunch officer, but also as a business owner for Geek Girl Gang, I had no idea how positive the experience would be.

It was so refreshing and inspiring to be around other creatives. And not only creatives, but women. It felt like a big supportive family. I was able to meet some people I had never seen outside of social media, and make some new friendships as well with a lot of talented ladies. It made me more confident about my decision to open the shop back up and feed this creative monster within me. I can’t wait to soldier forward with new ideas and a surer mindset.

Although I’m not sure when the next event will be, I strongly urge you to keep your eyes peeled and attend if you are a South Florida local!

Hello Kitty Cafe Truck: Miami

img_1939
The Hello Kitty Cafe truck made its way to Miami this past weekend and for a split second, I thought I wasn’t going to be able to go! I just registered Luna in daycare (sniff sniff), and they were holding an open house the same day and at the same time I was going to be visiting the truck. I had to adult at that moment and chose having Luna meet her teachers and classmates over kawaii time. But! Luna was in such good spirits after such a long and busy day, that we decided to take our chances and head over there in the early evening. It was such a great decision!

ThinkGeek Opens in Miami

IMG_0512

I was floored when I found out that Miami would be getting a brick and mortar ThinkGeek store. As a total consumer that has no self control, this was both a thrilling and scary concept for me, but I knew I had to be there for the grand opening. It is located in Miami’s Dolphin Mall, which is known by locals for being overpopulated and a general hell hole, so it was absolutely no surprise that grand opening day was crazy. I visited with little Luna in tow, so it was hard for me to really shop. I did a quick lap, which was nearly impossible with a stroller, and snapped some pictures to share with you guys.

Overall, the store is jam packed with goodies! The highlights for me were the Star Wars accessories, giant Pop figure wall (not pictured), and fun geek chic clothing (that Starfleet bodysuit tho). I thought it was so fun that they got a StormTrooper and Kylo to take pictures with fans, and the employees were SO nice. I can’t wait to go back when the hype dies down to shop in peace and really take everything in. Us Miami folk are so lucky to have this in our backyard!

Happy shopping, geeks!

ThinkGeek can be found at The Dolphin Mall, specifically 11401 NW 12th Street, Miami, FL 33172.

What I Wore: Cursed Child

Processed with VSCO with e1 preset

Like every other good little Potterhead, I went to the midnight release party of Harry Potter and the Cursed Child script at my local independent bookstore. As if attending another midnight release party after nearly 9 years wasn’t exciting enough, it also fell on my birthday weekend (since Potter and I share one – humble brag). How amazing is that? I knew I had to wear something really special, so I got this crop top custom made by Jessica of DressicaDresses. You may remember I featured her shop as one of my favorite Supercon vendors. It was absolutely perfect and the evening was even more so! Sure, it was ridiculously hot in the bookstore and the lines at the bar were out of hand (yes, our indie bookstore also has a bar…and a cafe – we even had live music), but it was such a throwback to those good old Potter days of my past and a great way to celebrate another year of living the geek girl lifestyle.

I’ll be reviewing it at length on the blog soon!
