6 On 6: Septemeber

Hello and welcome back to another 6 on 6 post. If you aren’t familiar with 6 on 6 feel free to read about it here. This link up is bought to you by Emma, so be sure to check her site out. This month’s color is purple.

Here are my 6 purple picks for this month:

 I’m kind of a makeup junkie and am always trying new things. Lately I’ve been all about matte lipsticks, however when I saw this Melted Metal lipstick by Too Faced  in Metallic Jelly I just had to have it. The color is perfect for fall and I love the metallic looking flecks in it.


Some of you that follow me on Twitter Instagram may already know I’m into Animal Crossing. I love everything about it, but I especially love constantly changing my character up. It’s hard to see here but my person is sporting some lavender pigtails.


I love notebooks, journals, all types of writing products. However when it comes to school  I prefer these smaller sized notebooks by Five Star. As I was back to school shopping I came across this cute floral one I had to have. I’m currently using it for both my Chemistry and ASL class but am thinking of buying another and using one for each class.


A few weeks back I decided I wanted to get into some comics. I started to ask for recommendations and read reviews, across the board The Wicked + The Divine by Image Comics came up over and over. It’s about a group of teenagers that have been transformed into Gods, however they are not immortals. I don’t want to get too into here because I have a post all about it coming up this week where I’ll be giving away Vol 1 to one lucky person. Be sure to check back for my review and to enter the giveaway.


Okay so technically my niece isn’t purple, but how could I pass up the opportunity to show her off in this cute purple outfit?Being that I have all boys having a niece is an excuse for me to buy all of the cute girl outfits and hair bows. My kids adore their cousin and I’m sure you’ll be see plenty of all them in upcoming posts.


So while I didn’t take this picture I couldn’t  have a post about purple things without mentioning one of my favorite podcast Welcome to Night Vale. This podcast is about a made up dessert town called Night Vale. It’s posted twice a month and talks about life in Night Vale. Listen along as Ceceil reports all the going ons, like mayor elections, what the Glow Cloud and it’s kid have been up to, the Faceless Old Woman who secretly lives in your home, and the weather. I was hooked from the first time I listened and am excited for the book to come out in October.

These are my 6 on 6 pictures let me know if you participated, I would love to see everyone else’s posts.

What are some of your favorite purple things? 


Till next time

6 on 6: Blue ~ Down The Shore Edition

Hello fabulous folks. So a fellow geek gal Emma over at The Scruffy Little Nerd Herder  came up with a fantastic idea called 6 on 6, check out her post and read all about it. Basically the 6th day of each month we’re to put together 6 photos involving the color for that month. For example August was blue, hence the title and my pictures will have some sort of blue in it. Ideally I would be posting on the 6th and would like to have it be geek related. However work has been bananas so I decided to make his month all about one of my greatest loves, the beach. I love going down the shore (in Jersey it’s always going down the shore even if you’re driving North), and all things nautical, after all I am a Mermaid.

Here are a few pictures from our trip this past Sunday to my favorite beach Spring Lake.

 Relaxing, enjoying the beautiful day.

  My beach umbrella happen to be blue, perfect for the challenge.

  Unfortunately since these were all taken on my phone I couldn’t zoom in but that kite was so pretty, and the color of the sky was perfect.
 After all long but fun day the me. Of my life packing up to head home.

Okay so this is 7 pictures instead of 6, but narrowing it down was so hard. Hope everyone enjoyed this post. It was fun and I look forward to doing again next month. If you want to join in on the fun feel free to do so and let me know so I can read your post.
