Person of [P]interest

I’ve been to San Francisco/Berkeley A LOT this month; I¬†think I’ve gone a total of five times at least. In fact, I was just there last Sunday for the SF Etsy indie emporium! I would’ve been there again this Sunday, but Shanice and I decided to skip San Francisco Comic-Con since Jason Momoa cancelled his appearance. ūüė¶

On one of my many trips this month (the 20th to be exact), Jen and I headed to Mission: Comics and Arts‘ patch and pin pop-up because we needed¬†wanted more enamel pins in our lives. Unless you’ve been living under a metaphorical rock, you may have noticed enamel pins are all the rage with the kids these days. I’ve been collecting pins on and off since high school ¬†to wear on the lapel of my blazer or cardigan. Part of me is excited that indie artists and companies like TeeFury¬†are coming out with quirky pins in full force, but then there’s the other part that absolutely hates it because how the hell am I supposed to save my money when I want to buy them all? <– First world problems at its finest.

Please make sure you don’t buy enamel pins¬†at places like Zara or Francesca’s though, because they’ve blatantly ripped off so many independent¬†artists. Support small businesses, people!

Anyhow, I had a particularly rough morning before we left for SF that day because – TMI ALERT – Rory got shit on me. Yep. You read that correctly, I shit you not. While we were on our usual morning walk, a couple across the way were riding their bikes with their dog that was off leash, and he wandered over our way. Rory got startled and started flipping out, and when I pulled him back I noticed he had wet poop around his butt, some on his tail, and there was a little droplet on the sidewalk. The dog eventually went away, and I kept on walking, but then I thought, “That can’t be all of it, can it…?” And low and behold, there was a nice splash of Rory’s canine fecal matter¬†on my left shoe, sock, and both sides of my leggings. – insert angry emoji face here – I was NOT having it that morning. When I took a shower I nearly slipped in the tub, and found myself yelling, “NOT TODAY, SATAN” out loud. So you can imagine how amused¬†I was to see¬†Sabretooth Dreams’ “Not Today, Satan”¬†pin at the pop-up. It was an obvious instant purchase.

I also picked up a couple Star Wars pins by Yesterdays (Boba Fett shaped like a boba drink, ha!), Ilana and Abbi from Broad City donned in Dumb & Dumber attire, a mint It’s-It pin (It’s-It is the real San Francisco treat, don’t let Rice-O-Roni fool you), and an actual It’s-It green tea ice cream sandwich that’s not pictured since I devoured it upon purchase. Oh, and I also got to see Gladys from Usagi in Wonderland!¬†Her pin game is so strong.¬†ūüėÄ

Geek Girl Gang

If you want to officially show that you’re part of the coolest gang in the ‘verse, Geek Girl Gang¬†has got you covered!

Geek Girl Gang was founded by fellow geeky blogger/fashionista¬†Meli¬†earlier this year, first starting off with a set of limited edition buttons, and more¬†recently just launched¬†a line of t-shirts! When I first saw the announcement on Instagram, my initial reaction was “MY BODY IS READY.” So when Meli messaged me and asked if I’d like to style one of the tees for my blog, I was beyond thrilled and more than willing ūüėÄ

There are currently three different designs to choose from that are simplistic and hella cute to boot! I love that you can pair them with virtually anything and make it chic, casual, or somewhere in between.¬†The designs¬†are all printed on cozy American Apparel unisex tees, so it’s best to go a size down from what you’d normally wear (Meli told me that’s what her and the models did).¬†I wasn’t too sure at first since I wear a women’s XL or XXL depending on the brand, and usually wear a men’s M or L. I just compared the sizing chart on Geek Girl Gang’s webstore to the measurements of¬†a women’s XXL tee and picked L since it was the closest.¬†When you go on Geek Girl Gang’s¬†webstore, you’ll see the pics of the models say what size they’re wearing and what their bust and waist size is, which you will most likely find very helpful if you don’t make things more complicated than they need to be like myself. Ha! And BTW, the L fits just the way I like it!

The black and gold Geek Girl Gang tee is my favorite of the three — it’s so O.G. Or O.G.G.¬†(Original Geek Girl… ha! Get it? OMG. Okay, I’ll stop). The R in “girl” also has a little heart in it which is such a darling touch! Please excuse the fact that my hair is covering said detail in all my pics.

My standard uniform is always a dress/belt combo or¬†a tee/skirt/belt combo (often with a cardigan or some form of outerwear), so I paired my Geek Girl Gang tee¬†with my Her Universe Star Wars skirt from Disneyland that features a bunch of baddies from the Dark Side, and my Admiral Ackbar locket by Rockets and Rainbows (Jennifer Landa‘s Etsy store) to dress it up a little and play off the gold lettering. Plus it’s Admiral Ackbar! My love for him is indescribable and knows no bounds. And of course, I threw in my¬†beloved bowler hat because I’m obsessed with it.

I think that the simplicity in the design of the tee makes it so easy to incorporate accessories from your¬†favorite fandoms to¬†further show off your Geek Girl Gang cred. I’m excited to come up with¬†different ways to style it and think of other fandom based outfits!

If you’re reading this, you’re obviously part of the gang. So make it super official by picking up a tee!¬†The “Full of Feels” tee is currently on sale for $15 and the black and gold Geek Girl Gang tee¬†is starting to run low in stock, so get on it¬†if ya want it!

Fantastic Pups and Where To Find Them

Today is National Dog Day, and also¬†Women’s Equality Day!

But we’re here to talk about dog stuff because I’m a crazy dog lady¬†dog mama. Obviously. ;P

Rory’s accumulated a few cool items here and there over the past few months, but the two¬†things I’m currently obsessed with are¬†his brand new harness and dog carrier by Yap USA. I’ve been in search of a nice carrier for him since the one I got couple years ago is so bulky and… well, ugly. The main reason I¬†got it was so¬†I could bring him on BART with me whenever I felt¬†like going¬†San Francisco (which wasn’t all that often), and also for family outings. But walking around with it was a nuisance. It felt like I was going around town with a duffle bag.

When I went to SF last month (which you can read about here) we stumbled upon Yap USA in Ghirardelli Square. They had so many cute and stylish things for fur babies; it’s basically Nordstrom for canines! I thought the harness Rory had was fine, but my aunt wanted to get him a new one. So the salesman (who was very¬†helpful and¬†super cute) showed us their “Yap Wrap,” which I thought was weird upon first glance, but then he explained the design and it all made more sense — it’s reversible (Rory’s is plain denim on one side, striped on the other), has¬†sturdy military grade velcro, a d-ring is attached at the bottom rather than top to prevent trachea damage, and there’s a handle down the back in case you need to pull your pup away from something. I feel like I explained this so much better in the vlog I recorded that needs to be redone since it turned out weird. Blugh.

But the carrier! Let’s talk about that, shall we? The carrier I found at Yap USA is the best thing ever. It’s not bulky, it has lots of pockets to place Rory’s treats and a few of my things, and is¬†stylish as f*ck. I’ve already used it numerous times since we got it last month — mainly¬†for Rory, but sometimes just for me. No, seriously. I legit use this thing as a purse. It’s fantastic! When I went to the Mission district and Berkeley with Jen and Rory a couple weeks ago, I just threw Rory’s little bag of food in the main compartment, and my wallet, lipstick, compact mirror, and portable charger in the carrier’s back pocket, and was set for the whole day. It was funny bringing him into Top Dog (one of my favorite food spots in Berkeley) because he kept fidgeting around in it; it made me feel like Newt Scamander in Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them.

If you take a look at their webstore, you won’t see the carrier I got there. However, I do believe that you can call or email the¬†store and place¬†an order. Just ask about the carrier from their Prada collection. In the meantime, have a happy Friday ūüėÄ

Fandom of the Month Club: Game of Thrones Box

Fandom of the Month Club¬†(FOTMC) put out another special limited edition box quite similar to the Severus Snape box¬†I got earlier this year, but this time it’s based on Game of Thrones! Of course I had to order one ūüôā

The pieces all came in a pretty red satin pouch that says, “A Lannister Always Pays His Debts” in gold; it ¬†came with a Tyrion magnet, dragon claw ring, direwolf studs, a direwolf decal (not pictured), a pocket watch necklace featuring Jon Snow, and a steel book marker with a quote by Jojen. Overall I thought the pieces were really nice, but I wish that there was a bit more diversity in which houses/characters were represented. To me, it felt very House Stark and Lannister heavy since a majority of the items were from those houses. Even the postcard had a quote from Cersei on it.

Since FOTMC is geared towards geek girls, it would’ve been cool to see a bigger item that represented House Targaryen, or even something that had to do with House Tyrell or Brienne of Tarth. Ladies f*cking RULED¬†season 6! I would’ve loved to have seen a cuff shaped like a dragon in this box. How cool would that be? COOLER THAN WINTERFELL ON A SUMMER DAY. That’s how cool.

My favorite piece was definitely the Jon Snow pocket watch, despite the fact that it came undone when I first took it out of the box (you can see that in the unboxing video above), but I was able to easily fix it. It says, “My watch has ended” which I thought was pretty punny because it’s on a pocket watch. My watch has endeday? Aaayyy?! Whatever, I like puns. ūüėõ

If you want to purchase a Game of Thrones box for yourself or someone else, they’re still available here.

Tourists for the Day: A San Francisco Adventure

A couple of weeks ago (on Harry Potter’s birthday to be exact ūüėõ ), ¬†my Auntie Nelly¬†randomly suggested that we go to Pier 39 and Fisherman’s Wharf in San Francisco for the day. I’m not¬†sure what prompted the idea, but I was totally down to be a tourist for the day! When my sister and I were little, Auntie Nelly would take us to San Francisco all the time. She’d drive to Pier 39 and we’d spend the day¬†walking around, looking at the shops (my go-to’s were the sea shell shop for abalone rings¬†and the chocolate store for chocolate licorice), going to Chinatown, and then ride¬†the cable car to downtown San Francisco. Ah, memories.

Along with Rory, we also brought our respective besties in tow¬†— it was kind of like a Hernandez-Ladies-Take-Their-Besties-Out day. We didn’t do anything extremely¬†touristy like go to Alcatraz (a.k.a. The Rock), take a boat tour, or whatever else is there expect for maybe eat at Boudin. If you go to that area, please don’t eat there. The Boudin¬†at the mall downtown is fine, but both of the ones located there are just ridiculous.

The last time I went to Pier 39 was about four years ago, but I don’t really recall much of it since I wasn’t there for that long. But bringing Rory this time around, I didn’t realize that people actually brought their pups with them there. Naturally, he¬†had a good time tugging on his leash and yapping anytime another canine passed by or pigeon came too close. Haha! Some butcher (I think that’s what he was…?)¬†put a big lobster in Rory’s face when we passed by a fish market, which would’ve been the perfect “Snapchat moment” as Shanice put it. Even though we had his stroller with us (hell yes, my dog has a stroller), we didn’t really get to bring him into any stores except for a couple of dog ones we came across; one of them being Yap USA which is basically like Nordstrom for dogs. I’ll write about them in a future post because we picked up some cool stuff for Rory there. ūüôā

Anyhow, I took a lot of pictures, so I thought it’d be fun to share them with you all!

Shanice and I have been talking about going back because there are some things we’d like to visit, like the Madame Tussauds was museum (we found a Morgan Freeman wax statue at some random tourist info spot)¬†and Ghirardelli¬†Square. We were there for a hot minute and didn’t even get ice cream or chocolate! Granted, it was pretty nippy out, but still. ūüėõ

All the Loot: My SDCC Haul

Look at my cute lil’ General Hux Huxband Funko Pop figure! Isn’t he the cutest?! He’s one of the many things I picked up at SDCC this year.

So,¬†I finally made a haul video to show off all the awesome stuff I picked up at SDCC. I’ve actually made a few over the last couple years, but never ever got around to actually publishing them. And even though I’ve made a few vlogs already, it’s quite odd because it’s like I’m just talking to myself. And then editing? Uugggh… listening and watching¬†myself¬†talk so much is w-e-i-r-d. WEIRD.

Anywho, you can watch the video down below:

Do you vlog too? Let me know how you get through it! And if you also went to SDCC, I’d love to hear about some of the cool things you picked up too ūüėÄ

The Hall of Faces: Game of Thrones Exhibit

A couple of years ago I got to go to the offsite exhibit that Game of Thrones¬†(GoT) put together for SDCC and it was so cool! They had tons of costumes from the show, a virtual reality simulator that made it feel like you were going up the Wall, a photo op to make it look like you were taking a picture with Drogon, and also one where you get to sit on the Iron Throne. They even had tattoo artists on hand for the first fifty people in line to get a free and super legit GoT¬†tattoo! And everyone also got free t-shirts. I ended up not going last year, but I marked¬†it as one of the top things I wanted to do at SDCC this year. It was really…¬†underwhelming.

My sister, her fiance, and I waited three hours in line to get into the¬†exhibit and all they had were three costumes (Arya, the Waif, and Jaqen,) photo ops with Arya’s sword Needle, the Iron Throne, two display cases of merch being sold at, some sort of crown that shows people Arya wants to kill through Melisandre’s flames, and the Hall¬†of Faces from the Temple of Black and White where you could get your own mug added, along with a souvenir print of the picture you took.

If you take a look at my blog post from the first exhibit I went to, you can see that it was pretty damn exciting.

Before getting thoroughly disappointed, I was super pumped to go because I’ve been fangirling over GoT a lot lately. And my crush on Pedro Pascal (Prince Oberyn Martell) has randomly flourished by tenfold, so I packed this Oberyn inspired outfit specifically for when I went to the GoT exhibit. I got it last year from Gold Bubble Clothing, and knew I had to have it when I saw pictures of it in one of their sneak peek posts on Instagram.

Oberyn was such a cool character — he was passionate, charismatic, full of swagger, and sexy as f*ck. How could I¬†not be attracted to him?! I remember when his character was first introduced I was like, “Ooooh, I like him… he’s totally¬†gonna die.” ūüė¶ #RIPMySweetBB
