5 Fandom Friday: Fandoms I Hold Dear But No One's Ever Heard Of

Happy Friday! I don't know about where you are, but today is a fantastic Friday here. The sun is shining and you almost don't need a jacket because it's kind of warm. It actually feels like Spring is going to show up.

This week's prompt brought on all the nostalgia for me as I went through all the fandoms I've been into. So this is my narrowed down list of not-so-popular fandoms I'm into:

1. Felicity


A lot of people watched this show or at least have heard of it. But I find a lot of people didn't stick with it if they did watch it. I know this because people are surprised when I mention the time travel part of the series. Yep, there was time travel in this show. I still have a soft spot for this show and Keri Russell in particular. I find it a cozy show to watch in Winter and I tend to re-watch it every couple of years.

2. Scrubs and Cougar Town


Both of these shows have the same creator and so, so many similarities - a lot of actors from Scrubs showed up in Cougar Town, if only for a couple of episodes, and the jokes and humour are very similar. Even the made up coffee shop chain in Scrubs is the same one in Cougar Town. I'm a huge fan of the humour in both of these shows and the casts were fantastic in both shows too. They're shows I will rewatch anytime.

3. Cable aka Nathan Summers


Everyone knows who the X-Men are but not necessarily this one specific character in the X-Men universe. I've read his story from the beginning, from child to time-traveling adult, and he's by far my favourite character.

4. Bust-A-Move


I've been playing the Bust-a-move games for years and years. I fell in love with it in middle school because the local movie theatre I went to had a Bust-a-move arcade machine. This led me to asking for the game for the Nintendo 64. To this day I still play the games on my Nintendo DS and will never turn down a Bust-a-move challenge.

5. 10 Things I Hate About You


This movie was everything to me in high school. I can't even count how many times I've seen this movie. The entire cast is amazing and it solidified my love for Julia Stiles, Heath Ledger, Joseph Gordon-Levitt, and Larisa Oleynik. The soundtrack was incredible and it introduced me to the likes of Letters To Cleo and Save Ferris. I will forever fangirl over this movie.

What are some obscure fandoms you're into?

  3. I am a HUGE 10 Things I Hate About You fan. I used to watch it all the time with my mom and my sister. I think my mom had a totally inappropriate crush on Heath Ledger (but really, can you blame her?) I never played a Bust A Move game, but I did play the heck out of Bubble Bobble, which I believe was a predecessor. I even got a Bub (the green dragon) tattoo when I was in Vancouver last.

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 …

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 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…
