Fandom Favourites

As we head into Summer, new television series are announced for Fall, convention exclusives are released, and current television series wrap up with cliffhangers or emotional finales. I find this is the time of year when I fangirl the most, especially as big Blockbuster movies head to the movie theatre too. Here's what I'm fangirling over right now:

1. I'm a huge fan of Kristen Bell and everything she does. Well, I recently watched the trailer for her new television show, The Good Place, and it looks hilarious and adorable and different! I'm excited for this to air.

Watch the trailer here:

2. Adam and I just finished playing through Left 4 Dead 2. So in comparison to the first game, this one was a million times harder (I'm exaggerating just a little). Seriously though, there was one level where we encountered maybe 9 witches. And if you've ever played Left 4 Dead, you know how scary the witches are. The music alone makes me want to curl into a ball under a blanket. It was fun playing that style of game again though, even during the stressful parts.

3. I know I'm not the only one who thinks the most recent season of 2 Broke Girls was a breath of fresh air. The show got a little stale but I've enjoyed the story line this season and the new characters and obstacles they've introduced. I have to say after watching the season finale, I'm pumped for the next season. 

4. Funko announced they were coming out with Harry Potter Mystery Minis and I knew that I would have to have them all. The style of the Mystery Minis are super adorable. I'm predicting I'll be spending most of Fan Expo weekend buying these. 

What fandom things are you loving?

  1. Thank you for sharing about the Good Place, looks awesome and I love Parks and Rec! Totally agree about 2 Broke Girls, I had to stop watching last season cause it was getting ridiculous but I gave the 5th season a chance, and I am glad I did. It is nice to see the characters progressing and sweet and funny instead of bogged down by the same thing over and over:)

  2. Kirstin Bell is bae. So happy to hear I have a new way to enjoy her.

  3. Those Harry Potter minis are so cute! I'll have to find out where to get some, or at least one. Love these fandom favorites! :)

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…
