Moms & Mickey

I got to spend Mother’s Day with my parents in the Happiest Place on Earth! They live in Northern California but try to visit every couple of months, and our favorite way to spend our time together is at Disneyland. Nothing brings out the 31 year old child inside of me like noshing on a churro, getting soaked on Splash Mountain, and strolling down Main Street USA. My pass expired...

#Play4PP

Last International Women’s Day we Play(ed) for Planned Parenthood. Gamers from all across the WORLD banded together to raise funds for PP.

Geek Outfits: Empire Strikes Back to the Gym

I have a confession to make: I haven’t been in the gym regularly since September. Ouch, that is a painful admission. 2016 was all about fitness for me, and I’m sad to say that with the stress of the last few months (I’m looking at you October/Novmber), I’ve fallen off the horse … including the literal horse since I haven’t been horseback riding regularly either. Women’s Star Wars Empire Strikes...

Barnes & Noble: Magical Holiday Ball

Some of my fondest Harry Potter fandom memories involve being dressed in head to toe Hogwarts gear at Barnes & Nobles, eagerly awaiting the stroke of midnight for the release of the latest book. So when I heard that Barnes & Nobles all across the country were throwing something called the Magical Holiday Ball on Friday, I knew I had to go. The event was definitely aimed at younger audiences which...

Hufflepuff Holiday Gift Guide

The holidays are finally upon us, and the season of gift giving has arrived. With the release of Fantastic Beasts and Where To Find Them, Potter-mania has returned and a new hero has been (re)introduced to the Wizarding World: Newt Scamander. Our new hero brings forth the dawning of the age of the Hufflepuff, and those of us loyal, dedicated and patient enough to be considered Puffs are ready to...
