The Funday Post

Salutations, my little ponies! I had an idea to start a weekly post featuring links to things I find amusing, fun, and adorable on the web. Thus, The Funday Post! This’ll occur every Sunday, hence the wordplay. Oh, and don’t be surprised if a bunch of quizzes from Buzzfeed (or anything from Buzzfeed for that matter), Play Buzz, and whatnot show up each week because I basically live for those things. I hope you all enjoy!

♥ I still can’t get over Benjamin McKenzie’s and Neil Patrick Harris’ family’s Halloween costumes. Perfection!

♥One of my favorite bloggers, Diana of Our City Lights, was interviewed by the BBC about her love of Hello Kitty!

♥ Amy Poehler’s Reddit AMA is filled with nuggets of gold.

Doge Weather is the best way to look up what the weather’s like in you neck of the woods.

Literary Starbucks = best Tumblr page EVER! Each post is written in the style of a famous author and how they would order a beverage from the infamous coffee joint.

♥ This quiz to see if you know all the words to “A Whole New World” sparked some controversy in the comments because of one specific lyric. That being said, I got 20/20 correct. 🙂

♥ My sister had me watch the Fung Bros’ “18 Types of Asian Girls” video and nearly died from laughter! Some of them were just so spot on. I identified with 6 out of the 18 types: Good Asian Girl, Geek Asian Girl (some of the things with that one weren’t as spot on for me, but still), White Washed Asian Girl (alt/indie rocker), Hipster Asian Girl, Forever Single Asian Girl (I really need to lower my standards, but single life is what I’m about at the moment), and Foodie Asian Girl (you’ve seen my Instagram account, right?).

Which Badass TV Lady Are You? quiz. My result was Leslie Knope from Parks & Recreation. I identify more with Liz Lemon, but I love Leslie and she shares my love for Harry Potter, ponies, and waffles, so I’m content.

Cheers,
Nina

Huckleberry Blues

outfit details – skirt/shirt/belt: Mossimo (buy skirt here) // horse brooch: vintage // straw hat: H&M // backpack: don’t recall, but it’s actually for kids! // shoes: Blowfish // glasses: Derek Cardigan // Duffy Bear keychain: Disneyland (buy here)

Hello kitties!

Summer school started up at the junior college I tutor at, so I’ve been adjusting to waking up at the ass crack of dawn to make sure I get there by 8 am Monday-Thursday. So far my body has taken a liking to passing out as soon as possible once it realizes it’s at home. I forgot how amazing naps are! Except I hate when I doze off well after the sunset because I feel all kinds of discombobulated. Like, “OMG, it’s 8:15! Am I late for work?” Also, where the hell did June come from? Wasn’t it just January? What is happening? How are we at the halfpoint of 2013 already? I haven’t accomplished many the of the goals I set out for myself to achieve this year, but I figure I still have 6 more months to change a few things.

Anywho, let’s talk about my outfit! I wore this last week when I hung out with my bestest friend, Shanice. We went out for a long walk with Rory by a levy, had ice cream, and did some shopping (at Target of course. Where else would we go?). And speaking of Shanice, she’s graduating today! YAAAY!!! Unfortunately I have to work during the ceremony, so I can’t witness her workin’ the cap and gown, but we shall meet up later for ice cream. We love ice cream, okay?

I was in a bit of a Mumford & Sons mood when I threw this outfit together. Not sure if you can tell considering the fact that my backpack has Hello Kitty buttons representing my initials on them. And yes, N.P.H. are my actual initials. That’s not there for Neil Patrick Harris (even though I do love him). When I think of Mumford & Sons, I think of old, rustic, antique items. Not really sure why. So I put this newish-but-old-looking straw hat on my noggin to protect me from the sun, but it was crazy windy that day and kept flying off my head. And my skirt has engineer stripes on them, which says “old timey” and “Mumford & Sons-y” to me. I think my outfit would’ve looked cuter with a pair of brown cowboy boots, but since we were going on a walk I opted for something more practical.

The horse pin I’m wearing on my shirt is a flea market find. I remember digging through a bag full of vintage costume jewelry and had to stop myself from doing a happy dance when I found it. Gotta keep it cool at the flea market, y’know? If a seller can see you like it, they’ll most likely try to get top dollar from you! I don’t remember how much I paid for it, but I recall it was a pretty good deal considering that I got a few other things from the seller too.

Alright, enough blabbering from me. I gotta go get ready for work! I hope you kitties have a lovely weekend ahead of you >^__^<

Cheers,
Nina

PS: Here’s some Mumford & Sons for your listening and viewing pleasure 🙂

Etsy Update!

Sooo… I was supposed to do an update on my Etsy store on Thursday, but it’s Sunday now. Mah bad, y’all.

I’ve been super busy since I just started my new job last Wednesday, but that’s no excuse! But I just added a few new earrings to Once Upon a Smorgasbord last night including some Disney and Hello Kitty ones made out of Squinkies, and a couple Adventure Time ones that I debuted at Sac-Con last week (and were also pictured in my recap of the con too)!

Beauty and the Beast: Belle + Philippe earrings

Adventure Time: Jake the Dog spikey earrings

Cinderella earrings

Hello Kitty earrings

I’m hoping to post more earrings and the rest of my necklaces up by Wednesday, but I’m not making any promises. Either way, I’ll let you all know when I post them!

Cheers,
Nina

Sac-Con Recap

On Sunday I went to my very first convention as a vendor! Sac-Con was a pretty amazing and freakishly scary experience for me. Why freakishly scary though? Oh, well I dunno… maybe because a majority of the items I was selling were my handmade necklaces and earrings from my Etsy store, so I had a personal stake in it, y’know? And it’s absolutely nerve wracking having some people check out your table for a few seconds and move along to the next one, or having people ask how much one of my handmade necklaces or earrings were and be completely appalled by the price. Many of my pieces are one of a kind — I have no intention on making another one exactly like it, and I use ‘spensive genuine Swarovski crystals, thus the reason why a My Little Pony necklace is priced at $35. Despite that, quite a few people swung by my table numerous times, so that was pretty cool!

Overall I found the whole thing to be a good learning experience and a step forward with my jewelry thang. 🙂 Plus I met some pretty awesome people and got tons of compliments on my pieces, SO YAAAY!

The pieces left over from the show will be up on Once Upon a Smorgasbord sometime tomorrow or Thursday. I’ll post an update once they go up. But for now, here are some pictures of my booth and a few cosplayers Tim found! 🙂

Cheers,
Nina

Rainbow Sherbet

Rainbow Sherbet has been my favorite ice cream ever since I can remember. When I was 5, I went to the Philippines and on my first day there, a sorbetes [ice cream] cart strolled by and Auntie Nelly told me to tell the man what flavor I wanted. When I requested Rainbow Sherbet, he looked at me funny and my aunt told him to just give me chocolate. I said, “But I want Rainbow Sherbet.” Aunite Nelly said they don’t have that in the Philippines. My 5-year-old self wondered, “Why don’t they have Rainbow Sherbet? Don’t all ice cream places have 31 flavors?” Spoiled American child!

Though I was deprived of my favorite ice cream, I managed to hang in there. In the Philippines they also serve soda in plastic bags with straws in them. Sounds weird, but I thought it was the coolest thing EVER. I still think it’s pretty awesome. 🙂

Anywho, for today’s outfit I looked to my favorite ice cream flavor and childhood for inspiration. Rainbow Sherbet doesn’t have any purple bits, but purple was my favorite color as a kid. I went through different “favorite color” phases throughout the years, but I have since returned back to my roots.

Purple, purple, purple. Everything must be purple!

outfit details:

  • cardigan/flannel: Target
  • camisole: Kirkland
  • pants: some off brand from TJ Maxx
  • shoes: Avenue
  • necklace: Tarina Tarantino
  • pin: Coach
