Unearthed From My Closet: BB-8!!

Earlier in November Jaime and I headed off to Disneyland to run the Doctor Strange 10K during RunDisney Super Heroes Marathon weekend.


I came out swinging with my love for BB-8! We got in on Thursday and I made it BB-8 day! I have a huge love for the droids in Star Wars and she's one of them. Even though it's fall, Southern California was having some crazy weather and it was really hot. I think it was in the 90s that day. So wearing a dress was perfect! Also, I'm glad it was warm because wearing a dress in the cold would of had me crying. I was determined to rock this outfit no matter the weather.






BB-8 dress: Her Universe
BB-8 socks: Loot Crate
BB-8 headband: Bought at the RunDisney Expo during the Star Wars marathon


I also got to visit Chewie and he loved my outfit and I got a hug. I always say this but he gives the best hugs.

SPOOKTACULAR Soul Borrowing 2016!


Sideshow Collectibles borrowed my soul this year!

I bet you're asking "what is this?" let me tell you! Sideshow Collectibles which makes / sells some amazing highly detailed figures for collectors. I own a few of their releases and I also get my Hot Toys figures from them.

Every Halloween they host SPOOKTACULAR for a week. They have a ton of contests, giveaways, free reward points which is pretty much free money, and new releases. The last two SPOOKS I earned enough Reward Points to buy their Sixth Scale Freddy Krueger!!
So now what is Soul Borrowing. Every day or so they would get on Twitter and ask for souls. You of course would go on, reply, use the hashtag, and try to get picked! On the last day of Spooktacular which happened to be Halloween I got my Galactic Scavenger vest and the call for souls popped up and I post a photo of me wearing my vest. Well, I got their attention and when asked if the vest was a Elhoffer Design ( of course) they gave the soul picking to Catherine and she said YES!

My mission was to get photos around my office handing folks things a la Rey handing Luke his lightsaber at the end of The Force Awakens.

So I did!!






My co-workers were great sports about it even though a few of them did not understand the concept at all but they rolled with it. The receptionist keeps asking if I won and I told her I don't officially know yet. I sent off the photos and an e-mail to the official address but the catch is you HAVE to give them all the requested information correct once or you forfeit the prize.

Free is never easy!

The prize is a Hot Toys Rey figure which OMG when I got officially picked and asked if I wanted to give them my soul for the Rey figure I broke and started crying at my desk. I sometimes get very emotional.

Hot Toys figures are not cheap at all. I own a Princess Leia, Han Solo, and Hawkeye ones. I sold a ton of stuff online to afford the payments! (Thank you payment plans!) I think it warranted a good cry for being picked.

I also don't know which Rey figure I am getting. There's her Jakku outfit, the one with BB-8, and they are taking orders for the Rey island outfit which is actually waitlisted!! Ahhhhh.... I'm good with any of them and I'm good with waiting however long to get my prize because I know they must be swamped something fierce will the shipping!

If you haven't checked out Sideshow Collectibles, you should!! If you are a collector and want some highly detailed figures of your favorite fandoms, they got you covered. Also, they are such a great company and wonderful to their customers!!

Do you own anything from them? Have you ever won one of their giveaways / contests?

Unearthed From My Closet: Tea and Hoth!


I am in love with the Battle of Hoth pin up dress from Her Universe. I actually bought it off Zulily back in April of this year. Sometimes Her Universe items end up there and on sale. I couldn't say no when it did show up and bought it. 

Fast forward to a couple weekends ago, my friend decided she wanted to go to Lovejoy's Tea House and be fancy. I knew this was the opportunity to finally wear this dress. Around this time, a BoxLunch pop store opened up near by and they also have a great selection of Her Universe item including the AT-AT cardigan. It was freaking meant to be. 

I am not a fan of cold weather but for some reason love the AT-ATs and the battle of Hoth. Empire Strikes Back is my favorite Star Wars film ever and Hoth is my favorite part. So I wore my dress, my new cardigan, drank tea, and ate a lot of tea sandwiches as we chatted about things. It was great!!

If you are a tea person and ever visit San Francisco, be sure to check out Lovejoy's Tea Room!





AT-AT Cardigan: BoxLunch (Not online)
Battle of Hoth Dress: Her Universe (Site Currently Down)
Darth Vader Darkside Purse: Lougefly
Shoes: Ebay but from Bodyline


Here's a night time photo of the print on the dress. I LOVE IT SO MUCH!!! I did have second thoughts about wearing these tights and shoes but still went with it. Maybe next time I'll pick solid black ones. Like I said above, I hate cold so I need to wear tights. The joys of fashion!

Have a great weekend!!

Small Goals {November 2016}


It's November!! So many things are happening this month! Thanksgiving! My very first 10K! THE PRESIDENTIAL ELECTION!! Tuesday November 8th is going to go down in history for so many reasons, so many.

But while I spend my Tuesday freaking out, I'm here with a review of my October Small Goals and my  new Small Goals for November!!


October Goals:


 Up the running to three days a week - My 10K is this Saturday and I stopped running. This is going to be interesting. 


Trimming the bangs - Trimmed! I even trimmed the ends of my very long and annoying hair. 

 Clean the kitchen - Not only was the kitchen cleaned but we replaced a lot of stuff like the toaster oven!! Of course, the table is a mess because I turned into a crafting table. 

 Book Tokyo Hotel - We mentioned it but it didn't get done! LMAO!!


November Goals:


 VOTE! - Today is Election day in the United States and I'm going to go out there and VOTE!! 

 Set up my 2017 Planner - Oh yes, it's that time!! I'm am planner obsessed and I need to start setting up my 2017 planner. I bought an Erin Condren Life Planner but I'm chopping it up and adding it into my A5 planner.  


 Book Tokyo Hotel - Lets try this again! But we do need to find something for the 3 days are planning to be there. 


 List Five items on Mercari - I've been lowering the prices on the stuff already on there and it's been selling but I need to get more things on there. Five is my goal!


Thanksgiving is in two week-ishs and my birthday is a week after that. I'm totally not ready for my birthday or the holidays. I think it's worse because of this election. I'm terrified guys of what the outcome could be. 


Either way, here's to an AWESOME November no matter the outcome!


Did you create some goals this month? Are you ready for the Holidays?
