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....

Nerdvember Day 25: Iron Man

Inspiration: My hair. I didn’t want to wash it so I started going through the closet for an outfit that I would work with a fauxhawk pony tail. Components: Biker-ish boots. “Powered by Stark” from ThinkGeek. Iron Man fingerless gloves I bought from Geeky Mamas when it was still in Cerritos. However, I think they got it from Nerdifacts. And of course, the fauxhawk pony tail, a tribute to Tony’s awesome hair. #Nerdvember Day 25: Iron Man. #settostunning Gloves from @geekymamas_official #marvel #ironman #starkindustries A photo posted by oakley boren (@oakmonster) on Nov 11, 2014 at 8:17am PST Challenges: I...
