I Miss This, Don’t You?

I went to grab a drink with Priscilla tonight and we reminisced how we first met. On Twitter, naturally, before we finally met face to face. We were both bloggers then. Me and my random, ranty, nerdy blog with the food spin-off that was starting to go somewhere. Then I got a job in the produce industry and the blogging stopped. Both the food side and this side. Why is it that when something you love to do as a hobby become your job, it wasn’t quite as fun any more? A quick walk down the memory lane with Priscilla...

6-Month Check Up

The Fail Wailers - Fitzgerald's - Huntington Beach

Hey hey party people! It’s been a while, hasn’t it? Frankly, I haven’t blogged because I’m ashamed of the state of my blog. JUST LOOK AT IT!!! I know it’s been broken for quite sometime now and I have all the intentions to fix it. But I couldn’t bring myself to the computer. Part of that is also literal, as in my office is a total FEMA disaster zone with all the cosplay and arts and crafts stuff everywhere that getting my desk is like a Spartan Race. As a part of my reorganizing, I can’t really put much away...

10 Goals for 2015

OakMonster - Run for A Claus

What an interesting year 2014 has been. 2015 goals are less lofty but more personal. But first, a recap. 2014 Goals Recap: 5 out of 10 + Extra Credit Last year’s list was quite and ambitious one. Let’s start with all the fails, shall we? Fails I did not run 5K under 40 minutes at any of the 5 races I did this year. Nor did I finish reading “S”. I don’t even know where I’ve put the book at this point! I did not learn new phrases in Quenya or Klingon, which, ironically, is the opposite of the only...

Nerdvember: The Final Days

It’s kind of hard to finish off Nerdvember during Thanksgiving AND the last USC football game of the year. But I did try. Day 28: Elf from Rise of the Guardian Inspiration: Christmas tree decoration at the office! I wasn’t going to wear the same ol’ elf hat for that. 😉 Components: The beautiful, handmade shrug from Pandoras Kloset. (Same person that I got my Jayne’s arm warmers from. And no, I cannot afford a full coat.) Red t-shirt. Red leg warmers. #settostunning #Nerdvember Day 28: Elf from Rise of the Guardians. We’re decorating Christmas tree at work today. 🙂...

Nerdvember Day 27: Han Solo

Inspiration: We were going over to our friends’ house for Thanksgiving dinner. Since we don’t have many Nerdvember days left, I really, REALLY want to wear my brand new Gold Bubble Clothing’s Sherlock Holmes dress since I didn’t get to do it last time. The dress looks AWESOME because it’s nice and snug. However, I thought about all the eating we were going to do and then I reconsidered my choice of attire. An A-line dress that does not restrict the belly is a much better choice! Components: Her Universe Han Solo dress I bought from Hot Topic. Star pendant....

Nerdvember Day 26: Firefly

Inspiration: Working half day! I wasn’t going to put too much effort into it. 😉 Components: Jason Palmer’s Firefly t-shirt. Another ThinkGeek vintage Jayne zip up hoodie. There was a fluffy pompom on top of the hood but I lost it years ago. #Nerdvember Day 26: #Firefly. #settostunning Classic @thinkgeek Jayne hoodie + Jason Palmer’s tee. #Browncoats A photo posted by oakley boren (@oakmonster) on Nov 11, 2014 at 7:38am PST Challenges: Wearing geek t-shirt feels a little bit like cheating. LOL Comments from Muggles: Nada banana just as expected....
