Custom Nail Art

 Hello! I have an exciting announcement! In the past few years, I got into amateur nail art. Here's a portfolio/gallery of my existing designs (and my instagram):

 For the past year, I've been planning and researching press-on nails. Starting this weekend, March 26 during InvictusCon, I will be opening up commissions for custom press-on gel nails! 

I'm still new to this, but read more info here:

If anyone has questions, please don't hesitate to reach out to me. Also if you received and liked the nails, please feel free to share photos so that I can like and reblog/retweet/share them!

LGBT+ Podcasts, part 1: Recommendations List

NOTE: This post was last updated in May 2021. Since then, a lot of audio dramas have updated or debuted!

Hello all! It's been a while. I'm a few years late compared to when it was trendy, but lately I've been listening to some more fiction & audio drama podcasts. They're an amazing form of media you can consume while multitasking- at work, running an errand, doing homework, tuning out your zoom call, and so on. 
I specifically mention LGBT+ podcasts, though, because although mainstream media is increasing in queer content, fiction podcasts seem to have the largest diversity and quantity in terms of good queer content. For the purposes of my blog, I'm interested in fictional narrative or serial audio dramas with established LGBTQIA+ main characters/couples.
This will be a two-part blog post and this first one is dedicated to an overall best-of ranking list of my personal favorites & some popular recommendations. See part two for reviews on my top 5 audio drama podcasts.

What to Pack for Cons & Travel

Hello everyone! I know it's been a while since you've heard from me, hasn't it?
Now that the summer convention season is coming up, I felt like sharing my useful list of things to pack when going to a convention of any type (or traveling in general). Based off of 10+ years of going to different cons, I feel like this is a system that works for me and may be useful for others as well. So here we go!

Most important:
- Wallet/ID/passport/money
- Tickets/other travel cards/documents
- Prescription medicines/items if you have any
- Jacket/coat with a hood
- Sturdy shoes
- Phone
- Bag/suitcase/luggage
- Toiletries*

REVIEW: GURU Energy Drink and Clover Organic Greek Yogurt - Social Nature

Social Nature is a review website for sampling various organic products. I have been doing a number of reviews for them and likely to do even more. Here are a few of the ones I have done thus far!

Clover Organic Greek Yogurt: 4/5 ★★★★☆
"I tried the peach, strawberry, & plain yogurts. They were light, creamy, smooth to the taste. The peach/strawberry had a tiny sourness, but it wasn't too intrusive in the strawberry one. I highly recommend putting some granola in the plain one because it gives an interesting crunch/texture. I definitely felt refreshed after eating them & definitely look forward to review more."

Guru Organic Energy Drink: 4/5 ★★★★☆
"I got the Lite version & kind of wish I got original instead. On the positive side: it certainly did not have the artificial sugary or metallic lingering taste like red bull or rock star or monster did. It also did keep me energized so thats a plus. However, this version had a light soda taste that was kind of fruity (which I am personally not fond of)."

This is a slight #spon, although I don't have any freebie codes, but feel free to sign up and join in yourself!

Top 10 Played Songs - Fall 2016

A while back, I wrote a list of my top 15 played songs of 2015. Well, that turned out quite well received and a couple people asked me to make another one for 2016. I will now do this seasonally, so here is my list of top 10 played songs of fall season 2016. Fun fact: none of the songs are later than 2013/2014. Yikes.

This time, in alphabetical order:

DGNA "Sad Story" (2013)- And this kicks off Flashback Friday, which is basically this entire list. I constantly adore DGNA because of their vocals and this particular song had been my favorite for a few months.

Evolution of Dance Covers (Summary)


As some of you may know, I've been in various dance/masquerade competitions for a while, and Kpop competitions in particular since 2013. During which time the state of dance covers in general began to flourish and evolve. This will be a considerably more mixed personal post (even more so that fanaccounts and reviews) about this evolution, especially in the American internet. I will also be talking about Jpop and Kpop alongside each other.
