Welcome to this year’s Nerdy Gift Guide, Part I! For the first part of this series, I wanted to share something we can all relate to: ugly sweaters! I’ve worn my share of ugly sweaters in the past, but never anything “nerdy”. This year that changes! Here are some of my favorites, ranging from Game of Thrones, to Crunchyroll, to Portal. Hopefully there’s something for everyone:
one | Pikachu Sweater
two | The Christmas Cake Is A Lie
three | Winter Is Coming Sweater
four | Crunchyroll Hime Sweater
five | Super Christmas Bros
six | Star Trek Sweater
seven | Christmasvania Sweater
Will you be attending any ugly sweater parties this year? I personally have my eye on the Crunchyroll sweater…if you have any other sweater ideas, let me know!
Yikes, can you believe we’re already almost through November? I’m slowly transitioning into holiday mode and getting ready for chilly weather. Here’s some things helping me do that:
I love some good liquor packaging, and this Sonoma Brothers Distilling case study is so well done. I love gin in winter, and also think this bottle would make an excellent addition to a bar cart ;)
Love Momiji dolls make a great gift for your friends, or even yourself. I’ve been a fan for a long time and I love the new winter collection.
It wouldn’t be a post this week if I didn’t mention Overwatch’s new hero, Sombra! I’ve only played her a couple of times (she’s really hard for me to get used to) but man her design is cool. Have you played her or the new maps yet? What do you think?
Have a fantastic weekend!
I went to Rhode Island Comic Con last weekend, which is held right in my town. Unfortunately I ended up getting sick, so I only went on Saturday. Luckily I was able to get some photos of Princess Peach! You can really see the gold details – which I showed in detail in my previous peach post.
Also, if you’re interested in a costume breakdown, you can find it HERE!
This costume is by far my favorite that I’ve made, and favorite to wear. What’s your favorite costume that you’ve made? I’d love to see photos!
When we first arrived in Tokyo, the first morning we went right to the busy Shinjuku station, got a coffee, and people watched during rush hour. I was surprised to see that a large majority of women (of all ages!) were wearing these flowy, comfy looking pants that looked like skirts. They were wearing them casually with cotton tees and sneakers, and dressed up with heels and a blouse. So of course, I had to get myself a pair :)
And I wore them a lot! Seen below in Ueno & Odaiba (I did not, actually, hold my pants like this for the entire trip):
I had seen similar pants in stores around me before my trip but ignored them because…surprise? they’re actually pants? I was turned into a believer after seeing so many women rock them in Tokyo, and now I can’t wait to style these different ways.
I also got this amazing cat shirt from Nya Shop, a small boutique shop near the station. I’m in love! I bought the hat in Tokyo, too ^^
I have a feeling I’m going to be wearing this outfit a lot this fall. Do you have a go-to item to wear as the weather cools down?
Whew – I’m back from Tokyo! And missed posting this yesterday…whoops :) I’ve taken some time to wrap my head around being back and getting back into a routine – always weird after a long vacation. And I feel like it’s extra strange that it’s almost Halloween – where did October go?? Obviously Halloween is one of my favorite days (hello costumes)…so here’s a few things this week to get into that spooky spirit:
Bat Balloons Oooh…spooky! I wish I was throwing a Halloween party because these huge bat balloons are amazing!
Overwatch Update This Mercy skin is everything…I don’t normally play her but I’m really hoping she comes in one of my crates. Which Halloween skin is your favorite?
Witch’s Brew Cocktail How fab does this look? It uses both Viniq and dry ice…I really want to try this out. Head over to Pizzazzerie to check out the recipe!
What are you most excited for this Halloween? Will you be hosting or attending any fun parties?
