So I am finally taking the plunge and watching Doctor Who for the first time. I am leveling up my nerd status. I am still on the first episode. I must say, no one warned me that this was going to be terrifying. It’s amazing, but pretty terrifying. I can’t wait to see what the series has to offer.

This week has been pretty glorious and I am falling in love with these beautiful Spring days, more and more. I can’t believe we are wrapping up the month of April. 2013, where are you going?! With the end of the week comes the always fabulous, always random, Sprinkles vs Sparkles.

Sprinkles

I feel like this informative video on crystals goes well with my post on gemstones.

♡ I love The Blerd Manifesto.

♡ How adorable are these dresses?

♡ These humanized Princess portraits sort of blew my mind.

♡ I want to make jewelry out of barbie doll heads and my friend told me about this amazing designer.

♡ I love these amazing date ideas.

♡ Such a precious recap of The Blogcademy in LA.

♡ How adorable are these pen cozies?

♡ You have to check out this completely unique and Trekkie wedding.

♡ How adorable is this embroidery?

♡ I don’t know who a lot of these guys are but I LOVED this list and I used to have that poster of Erik Von Detten.

♡ There are far to many reasons to list as to why I adore Uncool Aaron but this was added to the list.

Sparkles

♡ I am part of an amazing project called The-Reimagining. Every other month we all get together for a bi-monthly salon held by Ijeoma. I went to my first one a couple of weeks ago and it was a dream! ♡ I watched this video of Yeah Yeah Yeahs at this year’s Coachella about a million times. ♡ I went to one of the dopest burlesque shows i’ve been to in a long time.  ♡ I bought vintage Ninja Turtle toys from my childhood. ♡ I spent hours being super silly just so I don’t take myself that seriously. ♡ Networked with some brilliant event planners so I can start my own geek-glam event planning myself. ♡ Satan made an appearance on my Instagram. ♡ Had a cupcake/tea party with a close friend. ♡ Tried Moonshine for the first time while listening to the Beatles. ♡ I went to a carnival and ate all of the cotton candy. ♡ Sat in nature with a good friend and remembered how beautiful my surroundings are. ♡ I bought a new David Bowie shirt in which I am in love with. ♡ Ate swedish fish before yoga, like a boss. ♡ I bought and tried powdered peanut butter and loved it. ♡ Went to Shake Shack and didn’t order the entire menu.  ♡ Saw Evil Dead for a second time.

Well I am off to dream about the cupcake tour in which I am going on in Manhattan tomorrow. I am pretty sure it’s going to be as magical as I am imagining it is going to be.

Stay sexy Gotham!

Sprinkles vs Sparkles: Donald Glover is my spirit animal

Friday, March 22nd, 2013

It’s Childish Gambino Friday! I woke up with Mr. Glover on my brain and can’t stop listening to him.

Donald Glover was the better part of my morning. I also woke up feeling like I was hit by a truck. I had one of those moments where I realized something that might be life changing.This was that, I am not where I want to be health wise. No, I didn’t go out drinking last night but I did stay up until 3AM. My sleep patterns are not the healthiest and it’s something I would like to change in my personal life to be a healthier me.

With this in mind, I would like to share my Sprinkles vs Sparkles. Part of being the healthiest you is noticing what makes you happy. It’s also key to take note of what you have personally achieved. In case you’re wondering what the hell Sprinkles and Sparkles have to do with this, I will break it down for you. My weekly sprinkles are things i’ve come across that I loved. My sparkles are my personal happy moments within my life that i’ve done or accomplished within the week. So here we go:

 

Sprinkles

 

♡ This article is basically perfect. A good friend recommended that I read it.

♡ Finding out that Rebel Wilson is possibly in the new Hunger Games film.

♡ Gala is at it again! Here is an amazing post that just went up today. It’s super informative for the blogger babe (or dude)! Check out the other parts of the series as well, and get your blog on.

♡ Can someone please tell Nubby to stop being so stunning? Thanks!

♡ While I am having a mini Blogcademy reunion on my blog right now, you should go and sign up for this.

♡ Nerdy cuteness can be found here.

♡ Lamuelle basically summed up exactly how I feel about the new Justin Timberlake album.  I seriously think it’s impossible not to want sex listening to this album.

It’s going to be dope! ♡ Signed up for some brilliant lectures in Brooklyn that I can not wait to attend. ♡ I played a lot of Mario Kart of Nintendo 64!  OLD SCHOOL! ♡ I went to Fashionista and bought this piece of awesome. ♡ Had an amazing conversation with Jamie from Black Girl Nerds.
