Fandom of the Month Club

Fandom of the Month Club is a completely genius idea! It is a monthly subscription box, but filled with fandom jewelry. The fandom changes monthly giving everyone an opportunity to geek out to their favorites. I follow the creator, Erin (@thegeekycauldron on IG), and when I saw her posts mentioning the service, I knew I had to check it out. Fandom-themed jewelry every month for only $13/month? Where do I sign up?

Obviously I had my reservations. Would the quality be top notch? Will I enjoy the fandom for the next month? Will I actually wear the pieces I receive? Those reservations disappeared in a cloud of smoke the second I received my first box.

Naturally, I was overjoyed when I opened the envelope and saw what fandom was being targeted. Doctor Who? Allons-y! I immediately loved the little themed jewelry sacks (I’m actually using it to store my jewelry for Megacon weekend – great for traveling!), and what it held inside was even better!

5 Fandom Friday: Five Times I Totally Fangirled

I’ve been lucky enough to have a lot fangirl encounters over the past few years, so it was honestly tough to pick just 5 instances. Pro tip: if you want to increase your fangirl moments, just attend San Diego Comic Con. You are sure to make memories for a lifetime.


1. Meeting Gavin Rossdale for the first time.

I honestly can’t believe I’m allowing this terrible picture of me to circulate but I had to use a photo from the actual moment that this happened because it was magical. I’m a huge BUSH fan and have been since I was a teenager in the 90’s. I was pretty sure I was going to marry Gavin Rossdale and went through a brief period of hating Gwen Stefani for taking my place (I have since moved on). Naturally, I would tweet at him once he discovered social media and would squee with delight when he would tweet at me back, but nothing compared to actually meeting him after a show in Orlando. He actually recognized me from all the photos I had been posting on to Twitter (these were the pre-Instagram days) and remembered my name (?!?!) – it was so surreal. He was such a sweetheart and it really was a shame that it rained on us for hours making my styled hair and flawless makeup go to shit for this amazing photo. Despite how awful I may look (& how angry G seems to look), it never fails to make me smile because I remember walking away and actually jumping up and down like a little girl and not being able to wipe that stupid smile off my face for DAYS.

Nerdy Must Haves

Who Leggings; Leggings are a girl’s best friend. Why? They are easy to pack, feel like you are wearing pajamas and come in all sorts of fandoms. What’s not to love? Personally, I’m all about this new pair from TeeFury. Although I’m not the happiest with their sneaker line (dude, lay off the priciness), this new line of leggings is spot on. I wish I would have been able to snag a pair before next weekend’s MegaCon! Boo hoo.

Gryffindor Tee; This is one of the better designed house shirts I’ve seen in awhile. I love the large house animal combined with each house’s characteristics. Naturally, I chose my own house to showcase, but fear not. They come in all houses, shapes and colors (er, maybe). It’s also temporarily on sale so treat yoself while you can!

Potter flats; OK, so there is going to be kind of a theme during this post of must haves. I am completely and utterly obsessed with this beautifully designed flats from Electrique Sole on Etsy. Considering the prices I’ve seen for other custom shoes, they are a steal at $45 and are completely adorable. Again, I wish I could have scooped up a pair for Megacon, but I’m pretty sure I’m going to take advantage and order them for April’s first Geek Girl Brunch!

Hogwarts T-Shirt Dress; Another great Potter find. This shirt dress looks so comfy and the perfect addition to any convention wardrobe. Just pair it with a denim jacket and some cute sneakers and you are good to go. Added plus? You can rock this adorable look for Sunday brunch, running errands or date night! It’s so versatile and subtle. A total score if you ask me.

5 Fandom Friday: One Fandom Item Styled Five Different Ways

This Fandom Friday really spoke to my heart being fashion related! As you all know, I love putting together stylish geeky outfits, so I had fun with this one. It was tough to choose just one fandom item, but I finally settled on the fandom crop top. Sure, you may think that a 30-something-year-old should not be rocking crop tops, but I beg to differ. I think there are many ways to style a crop top in age-appropriate ways and I hope this post illustrates that.

There are a lot of great options out there for geeky crop tops and being convention season, these ideas may spark a little outfit inspiration (or two). Although I have many a crop top, I decided to go with my Marvel one because it’s so bright and fun.

What I Wore: Sunday Adventures

You may think Friday night or Saturday may be the time for adventures, but Sunday is definitely my favorite day.  Monday is lingering right around the corner, which makes it that much more special. You really want to hold on to the freedom, the experiences before another stressful work week begins. And that belief created our Sunday Fundays. We try to go somewhere new every weekend and this time around was The Alchemist in Wilton Manors. It’s such a charming little coffee and sandwich shop that grows their own produce and hand roasts their coffee. It’s also surrounded by other little shops and restaurants in the Eucalyptus Gardens. Overall, a great way to start Spring in South Florida.
