ComicCon Outfits

The Internet has definitely made me feel more normal... what I mean is that twitter, facebook, and the blogs that I read have introduced me to a ton of geek girls who wear their geek clothes proudly and have a love of fashion. Personally, I don't have many people in my life who have the same geeky interests, but also a love of skirts, accessories and jewellery. Some of my favourite ladies online are all about geek fashion and inspire me constantly, like Darling Stewie and Super Space Chick!

I try to have an idea of what specific items I want to wear to the comic conventions I attend, especially if it's a new item or handmade. So these are my outfits that I wore for Toronto ComicCon.

Day 1 (photos were taken after each con day at home because the lighting is horrible inside the Toronto Convention Centre, and that is also why there's kitties at my feet)

Kitty punching me in the nose - not mine after this incident (haha I still love him)

And after viewing these photos all I can think is that I desperately need a hair cut... whenever my hair gets to this length it seems so blah to me.

I'm also searching for fabric to make another skirt for my next convention in June!

  2. Adorable out-fits! I like to mix geek with femine looks as well. Star Wars is my first choice ;) I completely feel the same way about my hair right now too! Once it gets past a certian point it weighs me down.

My Favourite Baby Must-Haves

Having my first child has been eye-opening. I've learnt so much and made so many mistakes. It becomes a guessing game of what your child needs at times. You want to be 'perfect' but the reality is we're all just winging it and doing the best we can. Sometimes that means spending hours on Google, texting every 'mom' friend you have, or on hold with poison control because your baby licked eczema cream off your finger when you were putting it on her cheeks (or trying to).

With Christmas around the corner, I thought I'd share the top baby items that have saved us over and over again. They would be perfect gift ideas for new parents-to-be or stocking stuffers for infants.

1. Swaddle blankets - even if your child doesn't like to be swaddled these blankets are amazing. They're extra large and made from a breathable cotton. They were perfect for the spring and summer to bring with us on walks. If there was a cool breeze, too much sun, or Emma was upset, hav…

New Mom Must-Haves

It's been just over 9 months since Emma entered this world. It's been crazy. So many ups and downs. But I wouldn't trade this experience in for anything. She's amazing. It's definitely a learning experience and I wouldn't have gotten through the last 9 months without the support I've had. My family and friends have been welcome resources to help me in this new chapter of my life.

Emma has been a great baby - she sleeps well, she eats well, she's overall content and happy. We haven't experienced many problems. But that doesn't mean every day has been easy. Some days I don't get the chance to shower between Emma, chores, and just trying to eat; other days, naps are on schedule, feedings run smooth, and I have the opportunity to not only shower, but write up a blog post or bake cookies.

Since it's the time of year when people are out buying gifts, I thought I'd share the top must-haves I've needed over the last 9 months. They would …

New Beginning

It's a new year which always feels like a new beginning to me; a fresh start. I've never been one to hold myself all that accountable for new year resolutions. I wrote down a few goals I'd like to work on this year, but honestly, the only things that matter to me this year are making memories and doing what makes me happy.

We have some fun plans this year, some set in stone and others that we need to finalize. Emma will be walking this year and she's already proved 2019 to be interesting since she's now crawling and trying to stand up. I can only imagine how many new adventures we'll encounter this year with her.


I've also found new inspiration in my creative life - artists, creators, crafts, fabric. So many things have sparked new motivation in me. I haven't felt that in a while to be honest. It's nice. It's nice to feel these things again which make me want to spend time in my craft room or sit at my laptop and write .

My first step in my newf…
