Review – Yummi Joy

One of my favorite places to stop by on my days off from work/streaming is the popular & quirky place known as Toy Joy, here in Austin, TX. A few weeks ago when we made our way to Toy Joy and noticed a sweet new store right next door to them called Yummi Joy.

We heard Yummi Joy was officially open to the public so we decided to make our way there today to check out all the hype!

Life – Mellow December Weekend

It's been getting colder in Austin. The holidays are also coming up so it's nice exploring around Austin and seeing all the Christmas lights going up. It's been a busy work week and I was just ready for the weekend to hurry up! Started off the weekend going to once of my little favorite BBQ joins with my boyfriend. Green Mesquite, on Barton Springs, has always been my favorite location & place to get some BBQ - The atmosphere is always cozy & some nice hot BBQ was great for the cold day.

Pokemon GO: VLOG 1

Pokemon GO has taken over! I remember looking at my news feed and how it was just bombarded with the new Pokemon GO app. I was tired and annoyed of it at first. Then, I noticed a bunch of my friends were having a good time with it. My boyfriend ended up getting the app too and we caught a few Pokemon together. Then I decided to download it myself... I got hooked fast! poke-vlogs-thumb My favorite part about having the app is just actually getting out of my apartment - I use to go running every now and then before Pokemon, but adding the Pokemon GO app does make running a little more fun. It does give me more of a drive to actually go outside. A few friends and I decided to go Pokemon hunting around downtown Austin, TX last night. I'd love to share with you my finds & experience!

My parents and sister came to visit from out of town a few days ago! It was AWESOME having my whole family visiting. My parents never really sight-see when they come to visit so my sister and I decided to show them around the city. wimc-dec01

This flower was actually from my backyard back in my hometown. I took this picture during my Thanksgiving break :) It's so pretty!

Austin Comic Con 2013

I went to Austin Comic Con yesterday :) My friends arrived from out of town the night before and we had a great time catching up that we only got around 4 hours of sleep that night. The weather was horrible - Freezing and rainy, but we were still excited to just get to the con. I overdid it and took so many pictures so I'll just let the pictures speak about my experience!


After the insanely long wait to get inside the con, we were greeted by the first sight of a Tardis! Then a creepy-awesome looking weeping angel appeared!

IGGPPC Street Team & Sweet FCBD loot!

You know... I really need to start checking my mail daily. I have a bad habit about checking it every 2 weeks and once I get to my mailbox it's over stuffed with so much junk - I'm sure the mail man really hates opening my mailbox and seeing I haven't touch it for a few days. Well anyway, I forgot I signed up to help out for the IGGPPC Street team. This is what came for me in the mail! I'm loving the Hello Kitty sticker!! Thank you, IGGPPC! IGGPPC-streetteam If I had checked my mail sooner I would've definitely passed a few of these out at the comic book store today! ... And of course, Happy Free Comic Book Day, everyone! :) I hope you stopped by your local comic book store and snagged some sweet comics. Just a little side note - I just want to say that the employees at Austin Books & Comics are the sweetest people! ♥ Everytime I go there they are always so nice and extremely helpful.
