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.

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

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.

Currently…

Hello cupcakes…:

Wow it’s been a long time!! Life has been busy busy. As you can see or maybe you can’t (I’ve been having issues with my redirect), my blog and URL name have changed from GeekyGlamFit to XoMermaidKisses. I’ve also switched over my IG and Twitter handles to the same. Why? Well because I kinda wanted a fresh start and honestly I just fell in love with the name. With that being said I should be updating on a more regular basis, I hope. In the meantime I’m just going to post some of my currents.
  Reading: Radical Self Love: A Guide to Loving Yourself and Living Your Dream by Gala Darling. I’ve been following Gala’s blog for years now and simply love her. This book is just full of love and positivity. A nice little pick me up and reminder to stay focus. If you want to get your hands on it I suggest you do so quick. If I’m not mistaken this week is the last week it’s going to be sold.
Watching: Well I’ve been watching so many things! So here’s the thing for some reason I’m going through some phase where I start shows and stop halfway and move on to another. Not cause I don’t like them, honesty I don’t know why. So here’s the list of shows I’m watching now.

Oranges is the New Black: I know, I know how can I have not finished it the first weekend it was out?!

Daredevil: I love it, just have to get around to finishing.

Sense 8: This is sorta sci fi I guess. It’s 8 individuals that are somehow linked telepathically. They’re from all parts of the world and all walks of life. It’s pretty interesting and I’m really enjoying it. I do warn you there’s a bit of sexual content which doesn’t bother me, but people tend to mention that a lot when talking about this show.

Between: I only started watching this a few days ago and so far have only seen 3 episodes. Again a sci fi kinda vibe to it. Basically with out going into details is people start dropping dead, no idea why, town is quarantined, and I haven’t gotten too far. Won’t get into too many details but it’s made more interesting by the population that is being affected but this phenomenon.

Doing: What have I not been doing? Oh so much. Attempting to enjoy summer. Spending time with the family, and my adorable little niece who is now 1 month!! Oh and I started Vlogging! Yay! I have 3 videos so far with a new one hopefully coming up this weekend. I’ll also be attending the Latina beauty expo this upcoming weekend so if you’re there and see me say hi. Please comment, share, and subscribe.

I’ve been using the Sony A5000 as my vlogging camera and let me tell you I’m so happy with it. I do have a Canon DSLR but when I don’t feel like carrying that the Sony is perfect. I know there’s a newer model but honestly I’m more than pleased with this one. It has a pop up screen that makes it so convenient. If you’re looking for an everyday carry camera to vlog I suggest you check this one out.


Playing: I’m still hooked on Animal Crossing New Leaf and trying to make my town oh so pretty. If you play send me your friend code so we can visit each other. I also picked up a PS4 along with the new Batman game but have yet to play. The Mr has started and says he really likes it so far. I’ve watched some gameplay and I have to say it looks really good.

Randoms: I’ve been back to doing my makeup more often. I have picked up some products I’m so happy with. I’m not sure yet if I’ll do a post about them, a video, or maybe both. If there’s any products you want to recommend, feel free to put it in the comments. Also I’m always looking for book recommendations, even though I’m so behind on my to read list. Shoot them my way.
What are you into currently? Have any fun plans coming up? I love hearing all the cool things everyone is up to.
