Unicorn Crafts

Hey ponies! The Unicorn Crafts giveaway I’m hosting was supposed to end tonight at midnight, but I decided to extend it until this Saturday, the 23rd at midnight PST to give you all a bit more time to enter for a chance to win it. Yaaaay!

Be sure to go –> here <– in order to enter the giveaway. 

Anywho, I want to showcase some of the other cute little trinkets that can be found at Unicorn Crafts as well so you can all get a sense of just how awesome Faheema’s shop is! Though it may be called Unicorn Crafts, there is certainly more to it than just adorable little unicorns — you can also find necklaces, rings, earrings, and pins with narwhals (technically the unicorn of the sea… oops), Totoro, Doctor Who, R2-D2, kawaii looking snacks like bacon, donuts, cookies, avocados, macarons, (etc) with little smiley faces, and many, many, MANY more things!

Besides the necklace I got at AnimeExpo, I also picked up a Game of Thrones pin with House Stark’s sigil of a dire wolf and motto “Winter is coming” for my sister since she’s a huge GoT fan. This was a few weeks before I started watching the show, so now I’m bummed that I didn’t watch it any sooner. * le sigh *

Your teeth are totally throbbing from all the sweetness that is Unicorn Crafts now, aren’t they? Sorry I’m not sorry about that. ☺

Be sure to check out Unicorn Craft’s online shop for more goodies, and,  of course, don’t forget to enter the giveaway!

Cheers,
Nina

Unicorn Crafts Review & Giveaway!

{ Giveaway now closed }

Hey my little ponies!

Last month I got to meet Faheema Chaudhury, the mastermind behind Unicorn Crafts, at AnimeExpo and picked up a couple of things — one being a purple resin necklace with an adorable little unicorn and bright colored sprinkles that I’m wearing in the picture above. I don’t exactly remember how I came across Unicorn Crafts… like, I don’t know if it was through another blogger’s post or a hashtag search on Instagram — all I know is that I fell in love with with all the accessories with cute unicorns and nerdy illustrations (R2D2, Doctor Who, Sailor Moon, macarons with smiley faces, etc) on them, so it was only natural for me to start stalking following Unicorn Crafts on Instagram to keep up with all the kawaiiness. You can’t imagine how excited I was to see that there’d be a Unicorn Crafts booth at AnimeExpo while I was there too! Or maybe you can imagine how excited I was. Who knows?  🙂

It doesn’t really seem like it needs to be said, but I’m completely smitten with my necklace! It combines everything I love: unicorns (duh), sprinkles, and the color purple. Oh, and I can’t forget to mention that it’s all on a super fancy frame. All things that look fancy with a geeky/cute element pretty much have my name written all over it. I kind of feel like this necklace was made just for me — obviously it wasn’t, but still. Faheema illustrated the unicorn herself (all the pieces for Unicorn Crafts feature her original artwork), but what’s so awesome about it is that it’s made from Shrinky Dinks (in case you’re too young to know what that is, it’s this)!

Would you like one too? Well, you’re in luck little ponies because Unicorn Crafts is graciously sponsoring a giveaway for one of you lucky ponies to win the same necklace that I have! HURRAY!!!

Preppy Sith

Sometimes I like to make subtle nods to my geekdom in any outfit I wear, like with an accessory that reminds me of something from Doctor Who or a Disney character. Other times I’m very abrasive about it. Case in point, the Star Wars outfit I threw together when I went to San Francisco with my two best friends last Saturday. I’m usually all for the good guys and underdogs, but when it comes to Star Wars I can’t help but be drawn to the dark side of the force.

I don’t know what that says about me as a person. o_0

I found the Darth Vader pullover in H&M’s mens section a couple years ago. When I saw it, I felt like I couldn’t leave the store unless it came home with me… despite the fact that the money I spent on it should’ve gone to groceries. Speaking of groceries, the Stormtrooper ring I wore with this outfit was found on a cupcake from a grocery store! I seriously only bought the cupcake for the ring. Best $1.99 I ever spent! The collared shirt I’m wearing underneath my pullover was purchased at Marshall’s when I was a freshman in high school. I graduated in 2004, so that shirt is pretty fuggin old. I got my grey pleated skirt on sale at the Gap earlier this year during my local stores’ “Going Out of Business” sale. *cries* Stockton can’t have nice things, EVER! At least we have Dillards — it’s the only store location in California! My Kate Spade typewriter purse was given to me as a graduation present from my mom and dad last year. It is easily the coolest purse I own. And now a little Arpakasso (or Alpakasso) guy dangles from it. Jen bought it for me while we were in Japantown as a super early birthday present (my birthday isn’t until January). Since he’s wearing the German flag colors, I named him Han. 🙂

Our trip to SF was pretty awesome, despite the fact that my outfit shoot totally got interrupted by a mumbling crackhead. No, seriously. She was high and asked Shanice if she was a witch. She said some other things too, but they’re way too inappropriate for my blog! The picture above is the only decent shot that came from the shoot pre crackhead. I suppose it’s for the best — it would’ve looked odd if I smiled while clad in Empire gear, right? But before that nonsense we stopped by Berkeley first for food, because that place is just full of delicious om noms like Top Dog! Then we headed to Japantown where I found a Tokidoki cardigan that had buttons that looked like donuts. DONUT BUTTONS. I damn near died from the kawaiiness of it all. Afterwards we hit up Haight Street so I could sell some DVDs at Amoeba (but I decided to keep them because they only offered me $8 in cash), then we ran into the crazy lady, and ate dessert at Akiba Cafe. They have waitresses that dress up like lolita maids, but there weren’t any when I went. Booo. We ended the day at Stonestown Galleria, which is right across SFSU. When I was a student there I found myself wandering around Stonestown before, inbetween, and after classes. I often went home with an empty stomach and new shirt (or dress, or sweater, or whatever).

And that was my day, and that was my outfit. Hope you all have a great weekend! <3

  • Collared shirt: Express
  • Pullover: H&M
  • Skirt: Gap
