Buzz Bags Review: Sherlocked

IMG_0834

Buzz Bags strikes again with another killer bag from one of my favorite fandoms, BBC’s Sherlock. It comes at a very apropos time as well. For those of you not in the crazed Sherlock fandom know, like myself, the very popular Sherlocked Convention that is held in the UK yearly is making the move to the US. Unfortunately, that’s still too far for me as I have my West Coast visit already planned for next year being SDCC 2017, but it’s pretty excellent for all the US fans.

But I digress! This bag was full of some fun accessories, and possibly my most favorite ever. Living in Miami, going to the beach is {nearly} everyone’s favorite past time. That means anklets are a style staple, and I actually got my first fandom anklet ever! If you follow me on Instagram, then you already saw me post a story squealing over it. I wish I could have added a picture of me wearing it, but it broke after getting stuck in my pants. Sad face! Buzz Bags are so awesome that they are going to send me a replacement anklet though, so hurrah! Crisis averted.

Aside from the adorable Sherlock-themed anklet, we got 2 beautiful necklaces: one sporting the fan favorite line “I am Sherlocked” and the other a key to Apartment 221b. The package was rounded out by two quotable pins and a magnet, and some amazing nail decals that I can’t wait to sport once I find the time to paint my nails again! Overall, it was an awesome little package as per usual. If you are interested in grabbing one of your own, head on over to their site. They have some pretty amazing bags coming up for the rest of the year as well!

Being Geek Chic: Vacation Outfits

No matter where you are going these last few days of summer for a little R&R, there are always ways to incorporate a little geekiness into your outfits. Now, I know I may be weird, but one of my favorite things to do is to plan vacation outfits. I don’t get to do much of that lately since vacationing isn’t as spontaneous or consistent as before, but when I do, it’s like a form of therapy. Plus, it makes it so much easier to get ready in the morning and get to having fun when you already know exactly what you are going to wear!

To show you how easy it is to incorporate your fandoms into your vacation wear, I put together 4 different looks for 4 different destinations.

beach

It’s been so hot down here in Miami lately, that a beach vacation would be at the bottom at my list at the moment. But for those of you up north dying for some sunshine and tropical cocktails (lets face it, I’m always down for those), just pair a geeky one piece with a pair of shorts and a large hat to shade you from those dangerous rays, and you’ll be good to go! I was able to put together this look incorporating geekdom with all three elements – who says you have to stick to just one fandom? Nay, I say!

festival

It’s always been a dream of mine to attend a music festival outside the state, namely: Coachella. I feel like I would probably pass out from heat and feel completely disgusting, but it would be worth it for that incredible line up. I put together this rockin’ outfit for those of you fellow music lovers. I believe the best kind of music is live music, and you’d definitely be able to enjoy it in a fandom tank (special shout out if it ties in with an amazing punk band, like this great Potter/Ramones mashup) and stretchy ripped pants. And, of course, no festival look is complete without a flower crown and big ‘ol shades!

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.
