Seattle + OOTD #2

September 21st, 2017

My husband and I recently took a short trip to Seattle from the 15th to 18th! We went for a friend’s wedding and stayed a couple extra days to see other friends we haven’t seen in awhile. I’m not the best at keeping in touch, so I was glad they still wanted to meet up, even though we haven’t seen each other in 6 or 7 years.

The Sights

We’ve visited Seattle a couple times before, so we focused more on seeing people than sight-seeing this time around. We did have a bit of time to kill on Friday, so we hung out in Gas Works Park. It’s a park by the lake with a lovely view of the city across the water.

OOTD #1

September 12th, 2017

*gasp!!!* You’re viewing my first ever outfit of the day post. Yes, First. Ever. I’ve never really paid attention to fashion much nor was I ever proud of my fashion sense. I usually went for simple and/or nerdy things – pretty much your stereotypical nerdy shirt + jeans type of person.

Around the time I started working full time, I realized my closet was filled with nerdy shirts, most of which were black… because for some reason, like 90% of nerdy shirts are black. I figured, hey I’m a working adult, I should dress “my age,” right? I worked on replacing most of them with simple tops, ones that are easy to dress up or down.

They were easy things to wear and match, but I was never in love with them. It’s sad that it wasn’t until my early thirties that I realized, screw it, I should just wear things I like. I really like cute things but used to be afraid that they’d be seen as too childish. Now I just don’t care =P The past couple of years, I’ve been replacing my wardrobe with cuter pieces (mostly from Asian brands), and recently, I’ve been trying to support artists I like too. This brings me to my first outfit!

I’ve been following Omocat for a long time and have always loved her art style. An Omocat booth showed up at an Anime convention I went to, and I was so excited to buy my first shirt from them.

This is a short, boxy top from the summer 2017 catalog that is soft and thin. Yet, the fabric isn’t thin enough to be see-through. Perfect for hot summer days! I wore it on Saturday when the weather was actually fairly nice but hot when in the sun.

I’m so unoriginal; I just copy the pose from the shirt.

My Favorite Things: May 2017

May 18th, 2017

It’s kind of funny how inspiration hits when you mean to take a break away from something. I’ve been working on cosplay every day since my last entry and wasn’t planning on blogging again until I was finished. (You can see progress on my Instagram and cosplay blog.) I felt like fitting in an entry though! (And I have more in draft!)

The theme for this “My Favorite Things” is around comics because that’s pretty much the only other hobby I’ve been able to do. Starting with…

Tapas

I’ve been using Tapas (formerly Tapastic) for a while to follow a few comics, but the past month, I’ve really added to my library. It’s a site for webcomic creators to upload their works, and you can subscribe to them. Most are free to read, but there are some premium ones here and there that you have to pay for. If you get the mobile app, you can also tip the creators with coins, which translates to real money for them. I like that there is a way to support the artists you like!

Anyway, I’m really loving some of the series I follow and enjoy exploring the different works on there. If you’re on Tapas, let me know if you have any recommends!
