What I Wore: Brooklyn Hipster

September 19th, 2013 | Posted in Fashion, Personal by Meli

Day two brought us to the hipster-laden Brooklyn. We visited the Brooklyn Flea, Adam Yauch Park and some sweet neighborhood views. Being in the hipster capital of the world, I figured I had to play the part outfit-wise. I thought I did a good job until I noticed that my bright colors totally stuck out like a sore thumb. Damn Brooklyn, I’m too colorful for you.

These streets will make you feel brand new

September 12th, 2013 | Posted in Personal by Meli

I’ll be in New York City over the next few days with girlfriends for much needed me time. I’m also seeing my absolute favorite, Zachary Quinto, on Broadway! Super excited – make sure to follow me on Instagram for all our adventures.

Deck the Halls

November 29th, 2012 | Posted in Home, TV by Meli

I was so relieved to take a break from studying to be able to spend some quality time with the hubs & decorate our house for Christmas this past weekend! I feel like people jumped on the Christmas train way earlier this year – there were houses in my neighborhood decked out for the holidays well before Thanksgiving! What gives? I personally like to take holidays one at a time. What’s the rush, people?!


Have I mentioned how much I love having a faux tree? SO easy and low maintenance! The only thing I do miss is that delicious pine smell that no longer permeates my home. However, that’s nothing a little holiday Febreeze can’t take care of! ;)

Ps; although I find myself unable to sleep as soundly as I used to at night, I’m kind of in love with American Horror Story. I’m pretty sure Zachary Quinto is to blame (ohmyhawt).

Lots of shopping to do this week – picking up final little items for our trip, as well as Halloween costumes! I love October!

Comic Con 2010 Wrap Up: Day 2

July 28th, 2010 | Posted in Geekery, Movies, TV by Meli

So you may be wondering how I fared on Friday after my crazy rockstar night on Thursday. To be quite honest, I don’t know how I made it through the day. In fact, I’m pretty sure I almost hurled while waiting on a street corner for friends. But I strapped on my big girl panties and soldiered on!

First on our to-do list? Another Tron: Legacy press event. We made our way to Flynn’s Arcade after breakfast at The Broken Yolk. That’s right, Flynn’s Arcade. They had transformed what I figure was an abandoned storefront into the legendary arcade that houses the Tron game. They really went all out for this one and had us walk through a dark tunnel where we entered an insane room covered in futuristic strip lighting. To our pleasant surprise, all the actors were just casually hanging out (minus Jeff Bridges). We walked around the room, admiring all the details before Rosy decided to get Michael Sheen’s (Underworld, Frost/Nixon, Twilight) attention and I’m so glad she did. He is quite possibly the most delightful person we met on this trip. He willingly gave us these awesome giant bear hugs (I love hugs) and kisses and was just such a joy to be around. I really just wanted to pack him into my pocket and take him home. So if you are out there, Michael Sheen, let me know if that’s possible.
