So MARVEL’s The Avengers: Age of Ultron comes out tomorrow in theaters around the country, and being a huge MARVEL fan, our family is pretty excited about it. We’ve seen every movie at least once, own them all and often binge watch them on occasion. We decided to have a very low key, simple family dinner, grab some snacks and just enjoy some movies with my Super Hero Family. But this time was different… Continue Reading
My neck, my back, my Netflix and my snacks! I am currently, and always obsessed with Netflix binges. I love to sit and hit play and just binge out on some rad TV. Life around here would cease to exist if I binged on Netflix all day, but every now and then – mostly at night while I am working on the blog – I can get down with some good shows. I am contastly having people asking me for TV show recommendations, what I like, what I watch, and what I think is worth an 8 hour binger. Here is a list of the top 10 shows I’ve been binging on the past few months.Continue Reading
I am the worst person to watch TV with.
Let me just get that out of the way really quick.
I cannot just sit and watch TV in silence if someone else is in the room. I just can’t. I need to add my two cents, rhetorical questions, and stare at the other people in the room for similar reactions to mine. I even sometimes need a glass of wine to calm me down, because, I admit that I am a bit jumpy and anxious while watching suspenseful and dramatic television shows. My poor husband, I swear. He’s put up with me for so long and he still watches TV with me!Continue Reading
I am a huge fan of movies. Really. And though I don’t get out to the movies as much as I like, I did get my hands on some Oscar Screeners this year and was able to see some of these fantastic movies without having to leave me house! Hooray for connections, right? This year, there were so many amazing films and it was real hard for me to pick between my favorite director, Wes Anderson, and my own hometown hero Chris Kyle (No really, he lived in my tiny town, outside of San Diego for 6 years during his SEALS training here!). How amazing was American Sniper? Let me also just say, WHO KNEW Lada Gaga could sing LIKE THAT!? I was sort of dissapointed she wasn’t covered in bees or something crazy, but she totally nailed it and looked INSANE. Also Jennifer Aniston’s dress was my favorite, hands down, by far. Classy and sexy. For real.
I hope for those of you who watched last night, you got a lot of your predictions right! Mine are below, in case you’re interested. My PREDICTIONS are italic, and the WINNERS are bold. Check out and see how I did compared to your picks! I don’t think I did too shabby, if I say so myself.Continue Reading
My kids are little fashionistas, mostly in part to me and my fervid sense of style, but I can only take full credit on the purchasing of the outfits, not the putting together of them. I try to buy the girls a few statement pieces, and lots of layering separates so they can do what they like. I also try to buy a lot of basics, because eventually all of those clothes in Audrey’s dresser will one day become Abbey’s. Continue Reading

I am a HUGE nerd. Geek. Dork. Whatever you want to call me, let’s have at it. I love me some Doctor Who, and Star Wars and over here at the Blevins house we’re big fans of Marvel. So when Guardians of the Galaxy came out last Tuesday , we rushed to Walmart of pick it up on the BluRay DVD combo pack. That way we can have family movie night on the big screen with the BluRay in the living room, or the kids can watch it on DVD in their room. Me, being the nerd I am, decided that I needed to get all crafty and do some cosplay makeup for the character of Gamora. She’s got green skin, so I decided to greenify myself (again!) for the sake of art.Continue Reading
With the release of Captain America 2 : The Winter Soldier last week (it dropped September 9th!), I got inspired to make some delicious treats for all the geek girls viewing parties that will definitely be happening, because Chris Evans. Actually this cookie bark is SUPER EASY to make and can totally be tweaked to match any event, season, party or theme. I love M&M’s for this bark, because they literally come in every color you would ever imagine. It makes a great party snack option, and even an adorable and fantastic homemade gift for the holidays!Continue Reading
Can I just let you know how excited I have been for the launch of The Sims™ 4? Oh. My. Gosh. I am not really a “gamer” I don’t think I would, or could put myself into the category that my husband and his gaming friends are in, but I can geek myself out on some Sims all day long. My obsession started back when the very first The Sims™ game came out. I installed that first disk, and the rest is history. I am not entirely sure what I love about The Sims™ more, nostalgia or control. Both are pretty nice. Over the years the game has evolved into something so amazing, and with each release the Create A Sim gets better and better. Honestly, Maxis and EA have out done themselves this time.Continue Reading
Can I just say how amazing the Oscars were last night?! The beautiful women! Those handsome men in suits? Way to go Matthew McConaughey and Jared Leto! You guys looked fantastic! I hope you were live tweeting with me, because we had a pretty good time!
Every time I watch the Oscars, it makes me wish I was super fancy! I absolutely loved all the dresses and jewelry! Charlize Theron’s necklace was stunning! Old Hollywood Glamour wins me over, every time. The Etsy shop Gold Adore understands Vintage Glamour better than most. Her store is filled with amazing vintage and antique pieces that will literally make your jaw drop to the floor.
