Trust me, I wish more than anything that I was going to be attending San Diego Comic-Con this year. Unfortunately it falls at the same time as a really important family event, so I am going to have to miss it. The only thing that makes this OK for me is that I know Marvel is not going to be doing any panels there. It kind of makes it an OK year for me, as a huge Marvel fan, to miss. Although I know there will be some pretty amazing announcements from DC, Warner Bros, and so much more. But just let me think I won’t be missing anything. Please.
The day is finally here! The one that comic book nerds like me wait for to arrive every year – FREE COMIC BOOK DAY! I always say support your local comic book shop. These are shops that we need in our communities, and I don’t want to see them start disappearing. So please, head out to your local shop, pick up some free comics, and grab some other awesome goodies as well. The employees and owners are spending their time and effort for you today, even spending $5 would be a big help – so don’t just be greedy!
Did you know that February is anime month? My family is big into anime, from Pokemon to Attack on Titan, we love it all! Cowboy Beebop is one of the first television shows I ever binged. That show helped my love for anime grow – and my husband and I passed that love on to our daughters. They might only be 5 and 6, but they enjoy shows like Yo Kai Watch and Pokemon more than most other shows they watch. Not to mention, they collect all of the toys and games.
Valentine’s Day is right around the corner and so it is time to start brain storming about gifts. Candy and flowers seem to be the go-to for just about anyone, but does everyone really like that? For me personally, I am on a diet so candy is a no go, and flowers die too quickly in my mind. I put together some items that would make great gifts for the whole family.
I have been a collector of Funko Pops for a while now. It all started when I got one as a gift – and now I cannot stop. They are so cute and the perfect way to feed all of my different fandoms. From The Walking Dead, to Game of Thrones, to Marvel and Star Wars – there are so many to choose from. Personally, I have always had a problem with unboxing them. I try. And a select few would be opened. Maybe it is the collector in me, but I just couldn’t bring myself to open them up – until now.
As you likely know by now, my family and I are huge Disney fans. Several months ago we discovered a new Disney subscription box – the Pley Disney Princess box. It comes every two months and each box is themed to a Disney Princess. So far we have received Ariel, Rapunzel, and our latest box – Merida. This is something that my girls have been loving – and I think many kids would enjoy it. What a great gift for a Disney Princess fan this holiday season.
TeeBlox is one of my favorite monthly subscription boxes – and I get a lot so that means something. I am a total Marvel Comics and Marvel Cinematic Universe nerd, and TeeBlox appeals to that. Once a month, it arrives at my door with some great Marvel gear for me. Find out why every Marvel fan needs to subscribe.
When I found out about TeeBlox, I was thrilled! I love letting my Geek flag fly by wearing shirts related to my favorite video games, movies, comic books, and more. TeeBlox is a monthly subscription box that will send you an officially licensed T-Shirt in the theme of your choice. They have eight equally amazing themes to choose from (trust me, I have been trying them all!) that are geared towards geeks and gamers. I have literally been stopped walking around the mall, grocery shopping, and even at theme parks to be complimented on them.
Spring is almost here! We all know because we just lost that precious hour. If you have young kids like me, it could prove to be difficult to get yourself back in to the swing of things. I know we are always dragging for at least a week after we set the clocks forward. To help you (and myself) get through this time and to prepare for Spring, I have put together some items that will help you “reset” yourself in many different ways. From tracking money back guarantees, to booking vacations – all of these will help you hit refresh and reset on your life.
