Last week was one for the books with me! I attempted my first real cosplay, and pulled it all together in under two weeks. Whaattt? Yeah. I was exhausted, feeling gross, but at the end of the week, everything came together beautifully and was SO worth it! For baby’s first con, I decided to go with a doctor Mercy cosplay, because, well, I am wholeheartedly obsessed with that lady. The stress was worth it, and it all pulled together really nicely. So, here’s how it all pulled together!
This week has been one of the most exhausting that I have been able to remember in past weeks. Between school, work, writing, AND going to my first convention, I have been under so much pressure that it’s unreal. I had been to a lower key convention in the past, but this was the first time that I was completing my own cosplay, doing my makeup, contacts, wigs, all that. Low key terrifying. However; I did learn my fair share of lessons from NyanCon 2018, and I wanted to share them!
Fall is officially *here*! I am in LOVE with fall, pumpkin spice, and leaves. If you have an issue with that, oh well! This season is all about being cozy, and spending time outside. Plus, the weather isn’t unbearable and its the perfect time to get outside! What could be more perfect? To me, pretty much nothing. It’s the perfect time of year to wear pastel fall accessories!
I have started to lean into loving more and more pastel colors lately, just because I think they are gorgeous! I love how soft and gentle they are, and easy to style with! You can mix and match, and it still looks adorable. So many options! I tend to lean towards pastel pinks and lavenders, but seriously, any pastel is a go for me.
Self care has been a seriously hot topic recently. It seems that more and more people are starting to see how important it really is, but some people still might be misunderstanding self care. Or, some people might suggest there isn’t enough time in the day for self care. What a terrifying idea! Enter ways to get self care at work.
Happy Mental Health Monday! The best day of the week, hooray! This week, I’ll be sharing all my favorite free coping strategies that I’ve found over YEARS of careful trial and error.
