Anjolee + Date Night

We realized sometime last month that our last date day/night was in the summer! When you are parents, things start to add up and before you know it, months have passed by since you have had a nice time for yourself. It’s so important to keep going out on dates and enjoy your partner even when there is a tiny one around, so the hubs and I try to do so as often as possible. Unfortunately, this time around, life got the best of us.

We decided to head out to celebrate the hubs’ birthday and make our best attempt at being cool. We had tapas at a Brazilian restaurant and then went bar hopping. My favorite bar we stopped at? The Anderson. Although I’m sure it gets slammed and full of hipsters, it was so nice to visit on a Sunday afternoon. I totally appreciated the tropical Miami vibe complete with swinging hammocks and brightly colored walls. The cocktails were also to die for, so that helps.

Nerdy Must Haves

Sailor Moon choker; like every good 90’s kid, I am obsessed with chokers returning to the fashion scene. I have a bunch in my arsenal already, but I haven’t yet added some of the fandom variety. Cue amazing Sailor Moon choker. I love that it’s bright pink and has hardware, making it look a little pastel goth-y. Add the moon wand and we have hit perfection. Snag yours on Amazon for less than $15.

Always tee; if you don’t know about La Barbuda, then let me introduce you. She has such amazing geeky designs that make my heart swell and my wallet weep. Some of my favorites are her tee shirts, like this Always print. But she has stickers, prints and pins a plenty. If you are currently budgeting like I am, I am so terribly sorry for introducing you to this site. But misery loves company, you know.

Cylon raider necklace; Auburg Designs has always been a favorite of mine, and I am currently obsessed with their patina Cylon Raider necklace. I was late on the BattleStar Galactica train, and so sad I was. I even attended a BSG concert during SDCC one year and the entire cast was there mingling. I had only watched a few episodes here and there, but the hubs and friends were obsessed. They were beyond themselves hanging out with cast members, and I was all…erm, ok. How I wish I could rewind time! Anyways, this frakkin’ necklace would make up for it.

Dragon necklace; you have to remember the total lust and excitement all us Game of Thrones fangirls experienced over Dany’s amazing dragon necklace in Season 5. We were all left wanting it immediately after we saw it wrapped around her neck, and the time is now. Seems like we can get something pretty similar over at Art by Aelia. They are referred to as “Dragon Drapers,” and a lot are currently available for preorder. You can even get one custom made! Don’t get too excited, mothers of dragons!

I know I’m not the only one pumped for The Force Awakens – we are only about one month away until the newest Star Wars installment and you can feel the excitement anywhere you go. Stores like Kohl’s, Target and JCPenny are getting ready by ramping up their Star Wars merch, which makes it very hard to go…like, anywhere without spending a fortune. Jewelry line, Love and Madness, is no exception. They have teamed up with Star Wars to bring you all sorts of fun accessories, like necklaces, earrings, rings and hair clips!  Plus, they are officially licensed, so you know you are getting the real deal (they also have partnerships with Disney & The Walking Dead, to name a few). They would make the perfect flair for your premiere outfits – and I’m here to give one lucky reader a chance to win their own! Keep scrolling for more details!

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!
