My Life in Photos

July is over and it was a very busy but fun month! I celebrated my birthday, I had my Aunt, Uncle, and 3 cousins come stay with us for a few days, I headed back to Hamilton for two weekends, and me and Adam continued to explore Sudbury. 

We've been continuing our Bell Park walks. I went one morning on my own and came across a huge family of Canadian Geese.


We took an evening walk when my Aunt and her family came up to visit and though it was chilly, it was a beautiful evening. The water looked gorgeous.



We also checked out Dynamic Earth when they were up. They had a dinosaur exhibit going on. It was fun but also a little stressful. We did the mining tour and going 65 feet underground and walking through mines was slightly claustrophobic for me....




We also spent a lot of time at Moonlight Beach this month. It has easily become one of my favourite places here. The beach is huge and the water is amazing. I need to spend at least a few more days there in August. 



Surprisingly we on…

ConBravo

This past weekend was ConBravo! in Hamilton. I have never been to it as a vendor or spectator. I was surprised by how busy the show was initially and how many people were in cosplay, though I felt like I didn't know who anyone was dressed as. As the weekend went on, things definitely got quiet in the vendor/artist alley room. Maybe everyone was at the panels or participating in all the fun activities listed on the schedule? I did meet some really awesome and talented people over the weekend though which was great. I plan on spending some paypal money in Etsy shops from the artists I met over the weekend. There's a few artists I'm going to share on my blog in the near future too because they're just too awesome not to.

These are some pictures from the weekend. I was in a semi-dark corner in the room and even though I saw a lot of cosplay as I ventured to the washroom or to explore the other floors, we didn't get many of them down the aisles in Artist Alley. I posted…

Style Inspiration

As I've mentioned in previous posts, I really enjoy Pretty Little Liars. One of my favourite things about the show is seeing what the girls wear. I love all their fashion styles and I always love seeing how Hanna does her hair or what jewelry Aria is wearing. By far though, my favourite character on the show is Hanna Marin. I love her clothes, hair, accessories, and personality. She's cute and has some really funny lines.

Hanna's definitely not afraid of wearing colour and patterns. Her outfits are always really young, modern and hip. I wouldn't necessarily wear a lot of her clothes but I definitely like looking at them. Though, there are a few pieces she's worn that I'd love to have in my own closet. Oh, and I'd love to have all her purses!

To be honest, she also made me want to cut my hair back when I did. I adore her wavy bob and all the cute little ponytail hairstyles she does with it. Of course my hair looks nothing like hers and I can't for the li…

Craftiness

When I haven't been exploring our new city or working on International Geek Girl Pen Pals Club, I've been busy sewing new products for upcoming comic conventions. I have two more this convention season and I'm really excited for both of them.

These are some of my finished products from the last month:

New Pillowcases


Pouches




This is new fabric that I bought recently and I love it!


Pillows


Tote and Hobo Bags



Kitty Kickers


This upcoming weekend is my next comic convention, ConBravo! I've never done it before so it'll be interesting to see what it's like. It's so nice that it's in Hamilton so I don't have to drive far from my parents' house. I'll be sure to take lots of photos over the weekend!



If you're going to ConBravo! this weekend, come find me in Artist Alley!

What I'm Loving Now

I just finished watching the third season of Pretty Little Liars. This show is such a guilty pleasure for me. I honestly don't really know anyone else who watches it. It's just so addicting and this season was no different. As usual, I was hooked within a few episodes. It's the whole not trusting all the characters' innocence that gets to me. I have to keep watching episode after episode to know what's going to happen!

Me and Adam are also re-watching the first season of Archer since he got it on blu-ray. That show is so hilarious and if you haven't watched it, do it! When I initially started the show, I was iffy on it but after a few episodes and getting to know the characters, I loved it. It's such a funny show and I'm picking up even more hilarious lines watching it a second time.

Ok, I know you're all probably so annoyed with my hair talk because I feel like every two months I'm itching for a change. I'm back on a bangs kick. I bla…

Pink Lemonade Love

Summer is here and making itself known! We have been under a heat advisory for three days now and temperatures have been hitting the 40 degree mark with the humidity. I have been drinking so much water, iced tea, and iced coffee. But one thing I've been craving is lemonade, particularly pink lemonade. Grocery shopping is on my to-do list today so I will definitely be picking up ingredients and possibly some frozen concentrated cans of it.

Pink lemonade is one of my favourite cold drinks and it holds memories for me from our honeymoon. We spent our honeymoon in Punta Cana, Dominican Republic and the resort had slushy machines everywhere! They were filled with delicious, non-alcoholic, cold slushy drinks.... there was pina colada, strawberry daiquiri, and pink lemonade! I drank so much of these and now if I have any one of those drinks I instantly think of laying on the beach or wearing a sundress and sitting at one of the bars on the resort when the sun went down.

A pink and …
