This week’s AMAZE-BALLS prompt?:Β Characters I Want to Dress Up As for Halloween!!!!!!!!!


I’m gonna CHANGE IT!


Characters I Want to Dress Up As for SeaCon & AtlCon!!!!!!!!!!!!



  1. Vivian “Jinx” Lake:Β My SPN fanfic character.Β Check out Vivificated for more information on the character of Vivian.
    (There’s also a cross I’m going to wear whenever I do this cosplay that’s my grandmother’s and I’m actually wearing it now, but I’ll continue to wear it for the cosplay as well, and also continue wearing my animal paw print pendant necklace for the cosplay, so I’ll basically just take off my anti possession pendant necklace and my “Bitch” ring friendship necklace, but I’ll keep the friendship necklace on me in some way, because I LOVE EMILY!!!!!!!!)
  2. Casual Femme Castiel: A casual, easy cosplay female version of the character Castiel from Supernatural.

    (There are bows on the backs of the stockings and a bow pinning the hair back, half up, on the wig. πŸ˜€ )
  3. Young Rowena: A more youthful version of the powerfully witchy mother of the King of Hell.

  4. Dream Charlie: This is Charlie from her “dream-induced state” when she is captured by the djinn and Dean has to enter her dreams to save her.
  5. Dark Charlie: This is Charlie when she separates her good and bad sides in Oz and they both come back to our world and her Dark Side starts wrecking havoc.



Dark Femme Castiel: My version of a Dark Castiel, but obviously female, so a sexified version of Castiel.

Femme Castiel: My REAL version of a Femme Castiel, a REAL put together cosplay, not just a dress from HT. πŸ˜‰


And there you have it! My list of cosplays I would LOVE to do for SeaCon and AtlCon! Stay tuned to see which ones I actually end up doing or if I end up doing completely different ones altogether! πŸ˜‰

Skipping Things I Love Thursday again. I swear I WILL get back into the swing of things soon, I’m just still recovering from my fibro flare due to the cleaning up of my room and it’s totally wiping me out. :/ So here’s another post instead…

I’m obsessed with Catwoman, aka Selina Kyle. This is no secret. I even own her whip.

2015-06-10 15.48.20

But this post isn’t about that. It’s about getting new glasses.

Getting “CAT’S EYE” glasses, in particular! πŸ˜‰ I’ve been whimsically eyeing this pair a friend of mine has been wearing for a while now, and I finally asked her about them, and she told me they were Cat’s Eye style glasses and even told me the site she ordered them from (prescription even, and cheap!), so I went and checked it out…

And fell in love!

Here are the three Cat’s Eye selections I’m “considering”…

Option 1 (my fave and most expensive, of course):


Option 2 (I love this color, because it’s the signature color of Catwoman!):

Option 3 (This is the pair my friend has and is the “Classic Cat’s Eye” glasses, and is cheapest):


I still need to go get an eye exam done so I can know my prescription and also because I need contacts and also so I can know the PD (or pupillary distance) of my eyes for the measuring of the glasses on the website. It’s called Zenni Optical and I’m loving it! ❀ ❀ ❀ ❀ ❀ It comes highly recommended from my friend, who says she’s been using them for five years now and has always had a great experience every time! ❀ ❀ ❀ ❀ ❀

But Kimi says that Cat’s Eye style glasses can make your face look fatter, which is not something I want, so I def want to see if my optometrist has a pair of Cat’s Eye style glasses in store that I can try on to get a feel for what they might look like on me in person, though I can also upload pictures of myself on the Zenni website and have the glasses virtually put on my face to show what would look good on me, but first I have to know my PD, so first I have to go to my optometrist. πŸ˜›

I just feel like since I’ve gained weight and my face has gotten, well, fatter, and my swollen up and puffy, my boxy glasses now make my eyes look smaller and swollen closed, and I don’t like that, because I have really pretty eyes, and I really love to showcase them as much as possible, and I feel like if I’m wearing glasses all the time, I can’t do that. :/ So I’d REALLY love to go back to wearing contacts ALL.THE.TIME.(I mean like, constantly, I never took those shits out, LOLZ!), and having glasses that actually played up my eyes instead of making them look not so good. πŸ˜›

And plus, it’s just really time for new frames. I’ve had these frames for over 6 or 7 years now. I think it’s time to move on. And also, my ex picked them out and I honestly feel like they look like the glasses the girl I hate (that he still hangs out with and who tried to ruin our relationship constantly and who he claims was his “first love” and who he says he still has some kind of feelings for, sorta) wears. So buh-bye frames! I have loved thee, but we must part ways now!

Mandy’s New Groove is taking over, and that INCLUDES new glasses, damn it! πŸ˜‰

Oh! But what say you about these glasses? They are my sister’s and she came out of her room just now wearing them and I was like, “Dude, I LIKE those! How have I not realized this before?!” though they ARE relatively new for her, so it’s not a stretch that I haven’t really thought about them that much, haha! Pictures!



Let me know what you think of all my glasses options! πŸ˜‰ ❀ ❀ ❀

Today Is Brought To You By the Letter “F”

…for “friendship”, “fun”, “food”, “Frozen”, “fingernail polish”, “food coma”, and “fibromyalgia”!

And….”FREAK OUT!!!!”


I had a great day out with Kimi of Kimi Who? today! She is also my real life friend, who I knew BEFORE blogging, so it was great to really get to hangout with her again, since the last time I saw her was at her 30th birthday party.

We went and got lunch (after running a blogging errand she had to do), and I returned her Frozen DVD that I had still from a long time ago and just kept forgetting to give it back to her and even dreamed that I had given it back and actually thought that dream was REAL so thought I HAD given it back until I found the DVD recently and was SHOCKED that I still had it! I also had a fingernail polish of her’s that I was returning.

And she had something for me! She MADE me a fingernail polish to match one I was looking for! I had merely asked her if she Β could “be on the lookout” for a match for the one I was looking at, since I couldn’t find that exact polish anymore, and since she is a nailpolish-aholic (HAHA! πŸ˜‰ ), and she went out of her way to actually concoct one that matched what I was looking for HERSELF! FOR ME! She’s SOOOOOO SWEET! ❀ ❀ ❀ ❀ I LUVVLES HER!!!!! ❀ ❀ ❀ ❀ ❀ ❀

We went to lunch at a local Japanese/sushi restaurant, Fuji Steakhouse, and got sushi. It was DELISH! Go and check out my Instagram for pics from today! ❀ ❀ ❀ ❀ ❀

Afterwards, we took a drive out to look at “her dirt”, as she likes to call it (LOLZ!), which is the lot where she’s building her first house with her boyfriend. And it’s in a REALLY nice neighborhood and the model house for it is REALLY nice and I’m REALLY excited for her, even more so than I was before!! *squee*

Then she came and dropped me off back at my house, and I was just so exhausted and so worn down, from the fibro and from the food coma I could feel trying to overwhelm me, so I just laid down for a nap…and slept for three hours… So no vlogging today, unfortunately. I guess I’m just going to have to do a two-fer this coming week and do one vlog for last week’s episode and another for tonight’s episode.

Speaking of tonight’s episode…





Mmmm….. Jensen…. *drools on self* ❀ ❀ ❀ ❀ ❀ ❀ ❀ ❀ ❀ ❀

Well! I am off to prepare myself for tonight’s epi! Catch ya on the flip side! πŸ˜‰

Epic Success!!

Atlanta 2016

At 8:09 pm, on October 16th, Creation Ent. released the news that they were bringing a Supernatural Con to Atlanta, close to where I live (or closer than any of their other freaking cons!), in October of 2016, and it began…

The plotting, the planning, the list making… LOLZ!

Emily wants to come out to Atlanta for the con and her and I and her husband are going to share a hotel room at the absolutely AMAZING hotel that the Con is being held in, and we’ve already got a DELUXE room reserved, thanks to a really wonderful girl at the hotel who helped me out when I called to ask about making reservations, because I expect rooms to sell out fast for the Con, and the sooner I got on that shit, the better.

We’re putting a deposit down today for the room, so this shit is for realz, yo!


I’m just scared a bit shitless because, well, 2016 seems to be a year I’m going to be doing a lot of traveling… And therefore, having to spend a lot of money… Money I don’t know where is going to come from…

First off, there’s my Seattle trip in March. where I may or may not attend SeaCon (due to attending AltCon later in the year)… I could get a lower cost package for SeaCon, one without autographs, but one that still allows me to attend the concerts of the Con, and I would still want that Jensen photo-op, but I just can’t resist… But it’s still $440, just for THAT stuff. Sigh. And then, I will be attending Sakura Con, which is either a $55-70 ticket, depending on when I buy it. And then we may end up staying in a hotel during Sakura Con, which is another cost. And then there’s still me needing money for just food and activities and souvenirs and stuff like that out there… I can’t expect my friend who is flying me out there to foot my ENTIRE bill, and I WOULDN’T expect that, EVER! She’s doing MORE than enough for me as it is! Sigh. 😦

And then there’s an Always Keep Fighting Group Meet Up that Emily planned (and that I’ve kinda sorta been helping her with) in Lawrence, Kansas (where the Winchester Brothers from Supernatural are from!) for a couple days in August. Accommodations should be relatively cheap (staying in modernized cabins in a local state park), but we have to provide all our own food, plus transport to and from the park, not to mention transport to Kansas itself (which means a plane ticket for me), and then if we have to pay for any little activities we may end up doing or if we choose to buy a commemorative t-shirt or not. Sigh.

And then, there’s AtlCon. I want to get a GOOD package for that one, with a Misha autograph and a Misha photo-op and of course, another Jensen photo-op. Also, there’s the hotel price to think of and plane ticket and food money and souvenir money and transport to the hotel from the airport and vice versa…

I know I need to get a job, but at the same time, there’s not really a whole lot I can do due to my fibro. :/

But if it’s what I gotta do to get to AtlCon, then it’s what I gotta do, because I’m going, come Hell or high water! Emily and I will unite at this SPN Con and be GLORIOUS TOGETHER!!!!!!!!!! I am SO EXCITED, not just for the Con and meeting Jensen and the cast and all of that, but to finally meet HER! And to get to spend time with her! *squee*

AtlCon is going to be AMAZE-BALLS and I CAN’T WAIT FOR IT!!!!! I really hope I can make SeaCon too, as well as the AKF Meet Up, but if not…well, I’ve always got Atlanta to look forward to. πŸ˜€

And don’t forget about my giveaway! Giving away Halloween scrapbooking supplies!!!

Fiffty Shades of Meh

This is my 50th post! Hurrah!!!



I can’t believe I’ve already posted 50 times on here! That seems both crazy and not crazy to me at the same time! Lolz!

But…yeah…I KNOW I promised that TODAY WOULD BE THE DAY that I would vlog about that damn SPN episode but I just…can’t…

I barely have the energy to stay awake to sit here and write this, let alone make a vlog and talk and ramble about something and be all peppy and shit. I just can’t do it today, guys. I’m sorry. 😦 I feel terrible about it, but I will hopefully be able to get around to it tomorrow, or, at the latest maybe, Wednesday and make my Winchester Wednesday this week special by vlogging about last week’s epi. Haha! πŸ˜‰

Cleaning my room just REALLY took it’s toll on me. I am feeling it, man. And I’m also dealing with some other health issues that are a BIT more personal and I WOULD share, but that would probably be TMI for most of you, so I’ll just keep it to myself. LOLZ. So those issues are not helping things in any regard whatsoever. They only add to the craptastic factor.

So I’ve got fibro flaring up on top of other health issues being bitches and it’s just all not good right now. I have absolutely zero energy. I give absolutely zero fucks about the world today. Lolz.

I took a nap though, and feel a bit better, even though it’s after 7:30 now. Haha. Oops. Oh well. *shrugs*

Dinner time and soap opera! And my mom got some (semi) good news today! She doesn’t have to work 12 hour days anymore! She (ONLY) has to work 10 hour days starting tomorrow! *headdesk* At least it’s 2 hours less than before, because that was killing her, and I hate for her to be more stressed than she ABSOLUTELY has to be.

But I just gotta give a shout out (holla!) to Pepi for sharing SUPER AWESOME blog scheduling documents that my mom printed out for me and also for something that she’s alerted me that’s she’s going to be doing for me and I’m so flattered and overwhelmed and grateful and appreciative. She’s a wonderful girl. ❀ ❀ ❀ ❀ I LOVEZ YOU PEPI!!!!!!! ❀ ❀ ❀ ❀ ❀ ❀ ❀

Also have to give another shout out (HOLLA!) to my AKF/SPN friend Ronni, who I sent a card to, and she sent me something in return that I just received today!



I love it all! She’s so awesome! And she’s right! I do have a “bit” of a rebellious streak in me! Hehe! I mean, I AM going to dye my hair pink! πŸ˜‰ And have ideas for tats and other things I want that would make me appear “rebellious” in nature. Haha! Ronni’s just awesome!

Welp, I’m going to go prepare myself to go BACK to sleep, even though I just woke up like an hour and a half ago. HAHA! πŸ˜‰ Good night all!

Celtic Knot Tat, Cleaning, & Tired As Fuck

So…Supernatural Sunday isn’t happening either… My mom isn’t working the weekends anymore, so I don’t have “alone time” in the dining room where my laptop and my “work” space is stationed, so it’s going to have to wait until tomorrow, when both my mother and sister will be at work/school.

So tomorrow will me Supernatural-ly Magical Manic Mandy Monday! πŸ˜‰

And speaking of Supernatural, I’ve decided I want to get an anti possession tattoo that’s a LITTLE different than what the boys have in the show. I want an endless knot instead of a pentagram, because I think my father would be less likely to have a fucking heart attack if I had an endless Celtic knot tatted on me as opposed to “the sign of the devil”. Lol. Let me show you pictures!


(I want the outside ring of this…)


(Encircling the outside ring of this…)


(With this in the middle of the two rings!)

Haven’t decided on if I want it all in black or in different colors or (k)not (ahahahahaha!), but I’ve got plenty of time to decide. πŸ˜‰

I’m a little ashamed of myself, though, because I backed down against my father not only in not getting a pentagram tattoo but also because… I took my anti possession necklace off for when he came over and hid all my hair dying stuff so he wouldn’t see it and flip out… But see, I didn’t do it because I give a flying FUCK what HE thinks about any of it… I did it so my MOTHER doesn’t have to have abused heaped upon her about it and have to endure listening to us scream at each other the whole time he’s here. I did it all because SHE asked me to. I did it out of RESPECT for HER. NOT for HIM.

But my dad told me last night he’s going to try to get me a decent laptop sometime between now and Christmas, but he’s getting my sister one first because I already have this little Chromebook for myself. That’s very generous of him, but I’m afraid of the strings that will come attached to it, the “I bought this/paid for this for you, so you HAVE to LOVE me and DO WHATEVER I SAY AND WANT” shit that he likes to pull with us. Sigh.

And then, he says he had 13 houses to do pest control on today, because he’s an exterminator who owns his own business and he’s really good at what he does, he’s just fucking lazy and doesn’t go to work anymore. Like, today. He mentioned those 13 houses. Then my mom and him go outside, and when they come back inside, my mom announces that they are “going to go riding”, and I’m just like “what the fuck??” because he NEEDS to be working! How the fuck is he supposed to PAY for ANYTHING if he’s not DOING anything? I don’t understand… *headdesk*

And I don’t know what wild bug crawled up my ass, but I TOTALLY felt like doing something productive today in cleaning up my room and putting away all the clothes (basically ALL my clothes) that have been sitting in my suitcase piled up on top of each other and in a mesh hamper EVER SINCE I MOVED BACK IN WITH MY MOM OVER A YEAR AGO. Yeah…it was definitely time to get that shit straightened out. Especially as I want to go through it, find what I can wear, give away what is not fucked up that I can’t, toss out what is fucked up that I can’t, and keep what I REALLY REALLY love that I can’t wear right now in the hopes that one day I’ll be skinny enough to wear them again. Haha! I can dream, right? RIGHT?! πŸ˜‰

Now you can actually WALK THROUGH MY ROOM! And I cleaned off some other stuff too, including my “work” space (aka the dining room table, haha!). I got it all organized and shit. It’s looking pretty sharp, in my opinion. πŸ˜‰ What say you, oh people who live inside of my piece-of-shit Chromebook bought for me by my now-ex-fiance?


Inside of the box are my various colored pens and highlighters and markers and such. In the basket are all my journals and crafts and projects. The pile with the red book on top is my To-Do stuff and where I keep all my precious “lists”. Haha. πŸ˜‰ The blue book underneath all of it is my sketchbook and it’s got my folder with all my tat ideas (that I’ve been able to print out so far) in it as well as my drawings and I tape my string knot creations to the front of the book when I make them (in the process of making an “Oil Slick” hair dying style inspired one right now).

But I think I’ve babbled enough. I’m absolutely WORN THE FUCK OUT from cleaning up my room and my work space and I just had dinner, so I need to rest and chill for the rest of the night. Hope you all have a wonderful rest of your night! See ya tomorrow! πŸ˜‰

Oh! Also! Don’t forget about my giveaway! Giving away Halloween scrapbooking supplies to one lucky reader!

Pink Fetish, Miracle, New Groove

So….yeah…. Today was SUPPOSED to be Supernatural Saturday and I was SUPPOSED to do a vlog about the second episode….but….that’s gonna have to wait until tomorrow…. Lolz! I’m just too tired! My bee! So you’ll get “Supernatural Sunday” instead! πŸ˜‰

Check this, yo!





MANDY’S NEW GROOVE!!!!!!!! ❀ ❀ ❀ ❀ ❀ ❀

My dad is going to be SO PISSED, but ya know what?


So there!


I was going to try and save this for after I got my hair cut, but….I don’t know if I can wait that long….because I REALLY want to do it….like….TONIGHT…. πŸ˜‰

But….that looks like it won’t be happening….because the directions say to use “gloves” but they gave me NO GLOVES TO USE. *headdesk* And I’m totally pretty sure we don’t have any gloves of the kind required with which to dye hair in this house. Sigh. Plus, you have to lighten your hair first, and it says not to do that if your scalp is “broken”, and I KNOW my scalp is “broken” because I’ve been scratching it to the point where it’s been bleeding the past couple days. Sigh. So I’ll just have to lay off the scratching and be gentle when I do, and just hopefully be able to do this at another time SOON. Le sigh. *pouts* πŸ˜₯

I also got this:


I was going to wait to show you guys all of this stuff in an entry I’m putting together entitled: Putting The “Girl” In “Fangirl”, but I am impatient. Lolz. I haven’t painted my nails yet to see if this stuff is any good or not. It’s a gel enamel top coat to put over other polishes (generally other GEL polishes, but I’m going to try putting it over regular polishes that I already have and see if it makes them last longer and keeps me from fucking them up so fast, haha!) and you don’t need and LED lamp to make it cure, it cures in natural light! Yahz!

Whenever I get around to not being so lazy and when my nails stop looking like shit because of breaking in weird ass ways, I’ll paint them and try this out. Lolz! I’m taking Nature’s Bounty Optimal Solutions Extra Strength Hair, Skin & Nails multivitamins now, so hopefully that will help my nails be better. Hopefully.

Welp, let me get this posted and out therez in the interwebz so you can all read it. πŸ˜‰ Because I know you miss me when I don’t post when expected. Admit it. πŸ˜€
