I found these at a Japanese festival in Mississauga and I could not resist buying them just for the packaging.
They look just like the wands on the show, but are secretly an eyeliner and a lip stick
The lip colour I bought was a soft pink and the eyeliner is a black pencil.
Look how cute they are! There are other pieces of this collection but they are rather hard to find or too expensive in Toronto. I haven’t actually used them yet, so I can’t tell you how the quality is but they’re fun to collect.
I ordered his adorable Samantha Vega x Sailor Moon backpack recently. It’s faux leather, but still looks beautiful. I love the little moon charm and the Luna-like cat ears.
Inside, there is an Artemis and Luna pattern. I love finding things that are both nerdy and fashionable at the same time!
Teddy was our family first puppy, but he’s always been considered my sister’s dog when we moved out of our parent’s house.
When I moved out a few years ago, I really missed the constant companionship of a dog, but I wasn’t really in a financial or mental state to take care of one. My bachelor apartment was too small and I thought it wouldn’t fit into my social and musical life.
When Nash proposed and we moved in together to a bigger space, we spoke about our future and our desires for a little dog. We always thought it would come after the wedding but as soon as I met Bacon, I was in love.
The 6 weeks we’ve been together so far has flown by and he’s already grown from the 4lb tiny doggy he came home as. The first couple of weeks I lacked sleep and was always anxious to get home to him. Now he sleeps much better and I know he does okay by himself at home.
I’ve spent a lot more time offline than I used to. It’s kind of easy to choose between being on my phone/computer and happily paying fetch with Bacon. I’ve also gone on more walks and seen parts of my own neighbourhood I would have never otherwise have visited and neighbours (and their dogs) we’ve never talked to. Together we’ve seen the sun rise and set many times.
When I am online, I find I use the time more efficiently. No more am I browsing around aimlessly. I usually have a specific task I have to do in a short time frame (when Bacon is calm or napping).
I can’t wait until the weather is warmer so we can see more new places and people. Here’s to more adventures in the New Year, which in 2018 is also the Year of the Dog!
Bacon now his own blog over at http://baconthedoggers.com. I didn’t want to bombard this blog with dog posts (though there will be some occasionally) so I gave Bacon his own space. There you’ll find random photos of his adventures, fashion and occasional reviews of the doggy world.
Ever since I went to the Pin & Patch Show, I’ve been really into looking at pin artists online. One of these artists is @reallybigdill who has a lot of adorable Pokémon pin crossovers.
I couldn’t resist this adorable Pikachu Tamagotchi pin. I almost wish it was a real virtual pet!
I grabbed this adorable Gudetama shower cap on eBay for a few dollars. I love buying adorable options for everyday house hold items online.
What are some of your adorable finds?
Yesterday I attended the inaugural Pin & Patch Show. My friends and I arrived more than half an hour before doors but there were already 100 people ahead of us. The event took place at the former storefront for Magic Pony.
There were a lot of vendors and a huge turnout. I grabbed an adorable Pocky pin from Queenie’s Cards and a Gameboy pin from Pete Ellison. I had taken the last one they had (the display) so it was without packaging!
I need some ideas of things to pin that I can regularly show off. I don’t really have a jean jacket and a cork board is not optimal for showing it off. What do you pin?
When I purchased my new camera, I got a bunch of free goodies and one of them was this tiny USB that is a replica of the Canon 5D mark III. It even came in a similar box!
The tiny camera even came with it’s own lens caps and straps.
It looks just like the real thing!
Here is my Sailor Moon Funko to scale.
While I was in Rouyn-Noranda Quebec for FME, the nice people at Abitibi-Témiscamingue Tourism offered us fun activities to do in the area. I couldn’t resist the opportunity to see animals at Refuge Pageau.
On our way there, we made a stop where we climbed up a super high staircase to look at this beautiful view.
It took us over an hour and a half to get to the refuge but it was worth the wait. The refuge is a shelter for wild animals who were injured or orphaned. The employees care for the animals in hope to some day return them to the wild, or provide longterm shelter for those who can’t survive in the big world. The animals were fed with food that supermarkets were going to throw away, some of which still looked perfectly fine (which says a lot about consumerism). Hopefully, more stores catch on and do the same!
We fell in love with a lot of animals but particularly this porcupine named Chewbacca:
My friend Matt had been here before and he reacquainted himself with a coyote named Alex:
Enjoy more photos of animals below:
Yesterday was Teddy’s birthday and I’m kind of sad I didn’t get to spend it with him. My parents set me photos of the little party they had though. I’ll be sure to spoil him this weekend!
I can’t believe it’s been 5 years since we first brought him into our lives. I don’t think anything else could’ve changed our family as positively as this little ball of fluff.
