Happy Planner Giveaway

Quick update and a giveaway for a Happy Planner by Me & My Big Ideas.

Hello cupcakes and welcome back. I’m super excited to be running another giveaway on blog. This time it’s for a Happy Planner from Me & My Big Ideas. I’ve been using planners for awhile now, but this is the first time I’ll be using a Happy Planner. I picked mine up about a month ago, and fell in love. It doesn’t begin until July, but I love the layout already. Plus I can customize the cover, which I did and I’m just too excited.

I’m so so happy with the cover I ordered!!

I started to decorate it already, I couldn’t help myself. I have so many stickers I use from my other planners just calling out to be used.

Blind Box: Gudetama Cafe

Hello! Today I’m happy to share my  unboxing of the Gudetama Cafe blind boxes. These blind boxes are made by Rement, and are a little different than some of the other blind boxes out there. Unlike the Funko blind boxes, these are more of a set of items. Depending on the line it could be food, household items, school supplies, etc. The Gudetama Cafe ones are all food related, which I’m surer you figured out from the name.

I really enjoyed doing this video and plan on doing more in the future. I like that these are sets of things as oppose to just a figure, because I feel like I can use these to take some cute pictures with my Figmas and Sailor Moon figures. Don’t worry I’m still a fan of the Funko blind boxes, mainly the horror ones, and The Walking Dead line; and I plan on doing unboxing videos of those in the future.

Do you like blind boxes? Which are some of your favorites?

Get Ready with Me

Hello Cupakes. I’ve been MIA for a bit due to school. However I’ve had this “Get Ready With Me’ video sitting, and finally had time to edit and upload. School will be done in two weeks and I plan on working on loads of content. Hopefully I can schedule some stuff before the next semester rolls around. In the meantime I’ll leave you with my video. Hope you guys enjoy it. Check back soon, I’m hoping to host a giveaway before Christmas if time allows it.

 

What kind of videos would you like to see? Suggestions are always welcomed.

NYCC 2015

Hello. It’s been awhile and I’ve been meaning to post, but life has been busy. This semester is really keeping me busy, good thing there’s only 6 weeks left. I wanted to share some pictures and video from our trip to New York Comic Con. Me and my family have been going for about the past 4 years and we really look forward to it.

This year however even though we enjoyed ourselves there were a couple of negatives. One of the biggest let downs was the lack of panels. I thought I was the only one that thought the panels were lacking, but after discussions with others this was one of the main complaints across the board. The other part was how crowded it was. Don’t get me wrong I expect a crowd but this year it was massive. Also it seemed people were a little less friendly this year. Not everyone of course, but more than usual. I’m also disappointed I didn’t get to meet as many of you fabulous people as I wanted to. Time was limited and the crowd made it hard to get around.

We still had a good time and my little guy left on cloud nine after receiving so many compliments on his cheeseburger back pack. He was Steven Universe and had a blast taking pictures with people. Here are a few pictures from the day and a video. E

Anyone else go to NYCC? What were your highlights? Did you encounter any problems? What con will you be attending next?

What’s in My Schoolbag

Hello cupcakes. I’ve always been fascinated by what’s in my bag videos. It’s fun to see what other people carry, and if any of them have some of the dame things I do. So I decided to do a what’s in my schoolbag video since it is back to school times. I hope everyone enjoys it, and if you would like to see a regular what’s in my bag video let me know and I’ll be happy to do so. As always feedback and suggestions are welcome.

Potter Week

Hello cupcakes. Anyone who knows me knows I’m a big Harry Potter fan. I’ve read all the books and seen all the movies several times. I’ve shed tears of joy and sadness. And when we went to the Wizarding World a few years back I was in awe and could barely contain my excitement. Originally I meant for this post to go up yesterday for Harry and J.K.’ birthday (Happy Belated Birthday!!), but as you see that didn’t happen. However here I am ready to share two of my loves combined, Harry potter and Pops!

About 3 weeks ago Funko Pops released a line of Harry potter Pops and you know I had to go snatch them up. I’m still missing two of the currents that are out, Hermonie and Harry holding the sword. There are rumors of a Quidditch Harry being released this month and a Harry with the invisibility cloak in the future. I can’t wait for them all. In the meantime here’s a video I made with all the HP Pops I currently have. Enjoy!!

Potter week has me wanting to reread all the books. I may do so after I’m done with 2 books I’m working on now. If anyone is interested in reading along together let me know.

How did you celebrate Potter Week? What’s your favorite scene from the books/movies?

Thanks for stopping by. Please comment with any suggestions for upcoming videos you would like.

Latina Media Beauty, Hair, and Wellness Expo

Hello Cupcakes.

Today I headed to North Jersey with my friend Katy for the Latina Media: Beauty, Hair and Health Expo. This was the first year for the expo and overall ok. The location was great, right off the main highway, and plenty of parking. Milani cosmetics was there and I enjoyed their exhibit. So many beautiful matte lip colors (which I’m all about right now), but I’ll get into matte lipsticks in a different blog. One thing is for sure the panel I attended was amazing.

The panel was about real Latina beauty and included Massiel “Mankofit” Arias, and Dascha Polanco (Dayanara from OITNB), among others. Even if you’re not a Latina this panel was just full of positivity and self love. I encourage everyone to watch at least of it.  I made a video which is kinda long, but worth watching. Of course I couldn’t record the whole panel or my video would be over a hour long.

All the ladies looked amazing and were just so real and positive. I left there feeling so inspired. I know I’ll be attending next year’s expo and expect it will be bigger and better.
As of right now I don’t have any conventions set except for NYCC in October. If you know of anything coming up in the NJ/NY area let me know. I’m into loads if different things and attend all types of different conventions/expos.
What did you do this weekend? What’s your favorite convention to attend? 

Till next time loves. As always comments are welcomed.
