With the announcement of the revamp and release of Pokemon Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire in a few months I thought I would take a journey down Pokemon memory lane.  Click here to view the full list of Pokemon by number on Bulbapedia. As in all things, beauty is in the eye of the beholder. I have a special love for all the original Pokemon and actually don’t have a single Pokemon listed from Gen 2 and only one from Gen 3.

I’m obsessed with Geodes. They are completely unique and stunning in their own individuality and are years upon years in the making.  When I was a child I of coarse had a rock collection and have always been fascinated with geology. As an adult my love for geodes has influenced the way I decorate as well as my jewelry designs.  Here are a few of my favorite geode selections.

EVERYTHING IS AWESOME! Well maybe not everything, but Lego games definitely are! Although I love a wide range of games consisting of anything from World of Warcraft to Tomb Raider; there is nothing like a fun, light-hearted multi-player game. Some of my favorites include Mario games and Super Smash but these days Lego games are my go to for fun nights of game playing. Didn’t you know that all 22 year old girls love to play Lego games while having Mike’s and Oreos.

It’s that time of year again… Nordstrom Anniversary Sale!!!

(If you are looking for the 2015 sale – you can find it here)

Let me just start off by saying, in my humble opinion, this sale never has and probably never will live up to the hype behind it because it’s essentially a well executed marketing tactic to buy items that will eventually go on sale in September. With that being said, I love the anniversary sale not so much for the “finds”, but mainly for the excitement around it. You have to admit, pure marketing genius allowing customer’s who have Nordstrom cards “early access” by letting them go behind the tented off areas a week before it officially starts.

It’s summer time so that means days on end of lounging on the beach sipping tropical drinks, right? Well maybe for you but my summer looks more like Netflix in bed.

So recently I’ve become addicted to Anime. This isn’t so much a “starter guide” in the usual sense as I am by NO means an expert.. so here’s a look at how I’ve delved into this AMAZING genre that I had no idea even existed really. Seriously, where have I been? It completely blows my mind that I hadn’t even seen a single Studio Ghibli film until I was 22 years old. It’s really weird how I’ve gone to multiple cons every year, watched Pokemon and DBZ growing up, have a Tumblr, and have even played games like Final Fantasy.. yet I have NEVER watched an anime film.  Well that has all changed!!! Now I can’t get enough. I’m reading my first Manga, watching several Anime films each week, own a couple AoT (Attack on Titan) shirts, and am now drinking out of a Totoro mug at my home office. I know, I know… this by no means makes me into an Anime Super-Fan… BUT I LOVE IT. Seriously the cuteness of it all. I can’t handle it. If like myself you are completely unfamiliar with Anime but need some advice on where to start, here is where I did.
