It’s Game of Thrones Night on HBO Now!

If you have followed me on my blog since last November, you might have noticed I am a Game of Thrones fan. I was never all that into the fantasy genre before, but after I gave into the hype of the TV show phenomenon I was hooked on it. I didn’t have HBO, so I began watching the seasons on …

How to Easily Choose Fonts for Your Blog Graphics

I was always trying to be creative on the computer when I was a kid. As a teen, I sat in my room and made website layouts and played with Adobe Photoshop for hours on end. It was probably more like an obsession than a hobby for awhile. I often would refer to a homemade font style guide in a …

Fantasy Wardrobe Friday: Valentine’s Day Jewelry Gifts

Valentine’s Day is right around the corner (the ads are all over the place). Red, white, and pink hearts are friggin’ everywhere, the symbol of the event…I guess hearts are almost like a logo for Valentine’s Day if you think about it. Though there is also Cupid’s arrow and Cupid himself. Anyway, the heart shape is the most synonymous with …

11 Free Open Source Software Alternatives

Software can be really expensive. If you are a designer, animator, photographer, video editor–the industry standard programs can cost into the thousands of dollars. Understandably, these computer programs are fully loaded with all the bells and whistles, but if someone is just learning or trying to experiment in a certain area of interest, it may be an investment that the …

Fantasy Wardrobe Friday: Super Bowl Cute

This week’s Fantasy Wardrobe Friday is inspired by…you guessed it! The Super Bowl! I thought it would be an interesting challenge for me since I’m not a sports fan and don’t have any jerseys or athletic wear in my closet. Well, I have sneakers…those might count I guess. I wondered how I was going to put together two game day …

Super Bowl Goat Cheese Balls

A number of weeks ago I was watching some mind numbing reality television in the form of Vanderpump Rules (I wasn’t really watching, I was listening), and one of the characters (I mean cast members) was raving about Sur’s goat cheese balls. Wait. What did she say? Goat cheese balls? There is such a thing? Being the cheese enthusiast that …

Fantasy Wardrobe Friday: Sick Days

Please excuse the singular post this week; I got sick…again. It’s so annoying! This is twice in one month I have caught something, and this rarely happens to me. Hopefully, this is the last time I will be ill this season (knock wood). I guess not feeling well inspired this week’s Fantasy Wardrobe Friday. I decided to put together sort …

Fantasy Wardrobe Friday: Downton Abbey Style

  Downton Abbey is a guilty pleasure of mine. Every Sunday night, I am not on my computer from 8-9pm because I am totally devoted to watching the Crawleys and their dramas. I’ve always loved period based movies, television shows, and books. There is so much about past eras that intrigue me, especially the fashion.  It’s so interesting how trends …

The Ins and Outs of Disability Advocacy

Sticking up for one’s rights, or the rights of a specific group of people is an important way to encourage change.  There are many ways society advocates for different things; person to person dialogue, media commentary, writing to the proper representatives, protests, campaigns, lobbying, or–as hopefully only a last resort, a lawsuit. All of these can be done in a peaceful …

Fantasy Wardrobe Friday: From Day to Night

We have a blizzard going on right now, and so I wanted to put a Fantasy Wardrobe Friday post together with an outfit that came across a little more….warm and Spring-like. I also wanted to find an item that could be used in a day to night look. I began looking for the main piece, a dress I ended up finding by …
