SAN DIEGO COMIC CON WAS LIFE.

So I might have to change my name to SanDiegoMara because I am in love with the weather and how
awesome the atmosphere was. Our hotel room was basically an apartment and overlooked a marina. Again-- the weather was amazing and I was not in a hurry to get back to Houston, Texas. 

 Almost a 60,000 steps were taken to explore the mecca of Comics, Video games, movies and TV shows. Everything from Tokidoki, The Walking Dead, Bates Motel, Avengers,  Xbox live, Bandai, Hello Kitty, American Horror Story... ok this list could go on forever.
Basically walking the exhibit hall was awesome, I got a poster signed by the entire cast of Sharknado 2. I LOVE SYFY MOVIES, so I kind of got it as a joke. Side note--Tara Reid is such a troll she didn't even acknowledge me when she signed my poster and was on the phone... She like scribbled Taskdjakjsasodk and scooted it on over to Vivica Fox. Sharknado 2 premieres on Wednesday July 30th, I'll be live tweeting it.
Check out photos (LOTS OF THEM) from my experience. I didn't photograph EVERYTHING because it was ALOT annnd I was living life in real time, not through a lens. 
ENJOY:

BRB, ITS SAN DIEGO COMIC CON

Its that time again, the biggest Comic Con is going on in San Diego and I will be attending :D
I AM DYING WITH EXCITEMENT.

So what is Comic Con? It started in the 70's as a Comic Convention but has evolved in recent years into a gathering from everything to video games and Movies.

GET JEALOUS BECAUSE I WILL BE SEEING THE WALKING DEAD PANEL IN PERSON.

Many studios will be providing sneak peeks of fall shows or movies coming out so of course I am looking forward for Community, American Horror Story, TWD, Guillermo Del Toro panel, Game of thrones AND MORE.


I wish Spider-man was a bigger deal this year but I am ok with this.


I AM SUCH A NERD BUT I WILL BE BACK WITH FULL DETAILS, STAY TUNED :)
 I will be live tweeting and on Instagram until then:

HOUSTON BRIDAL EXTRAVAGANZA: SOUTH ASIAN BRIDAL

The most unique fashion show at the Bridal Extravaganza was the South Asian show with authentic custom wedding designs. In the picture above, the lady on the left is an actual bride wearing her actual dress. I loved the colors and the culture with these outfits! Everything was so ornate and luxurious.

Anyone want to invite me to a South Asian wedding? Thanks in advance :)

BRIDAL EXPO: HOUSTON BRIDAL FUN

If you recall, I've been all about the Houston Bridal Extravaganza. I'm not getting married anytime soon but give me an excuse to act like a princess and try cake all day and I'm there! My favorite booth in general was the Over The Top booth. They specialize in linens. As a fashion major, I have a small obsession with fabric and textures. I AM OBSESSED with some of the things they do. Keeping them in mind! Lace, sequins, polka dots, stripes-- whatever it is they are awesome and have it.
There were lot's of flowers everywhere that I just wanted to take home with me!
OMG, cake! So many samples. I learned I love almond cake.  I guess its worth mentioning I a posing with a giant Cake dress.Yes, that is cake. 
Who Doesn't love a green wall? NEED.


STAY TUNED, The finale of the Bridal Extravaganza was an AMAZING Asian Bridal show. I DIED.

BRIDAL EXTRAVAGANZA: DAMSEL WHITE LABEL

The summer 2014 Bridal Extravaganza was from June 19th-July 20. Natalie Harris designer of Damsel White Label showed on Saturday and I had the awesome pleasure of seeing her. Natalie Harris is a Houston based designer mixing edge with class, this show was definitely for the modern bride.  Grace Kelly meets Gwen Stefani? Sounds like the perfect pair for inspiration.  I love the mix of prints and colors in this collection. She even sublimates designs to provide details in some of her fabrics. Talk about innovation! She mixes great textures and colors. I love it. 


Be sure to check out more of her designs online: http://www.natalieharrisdesign.com/index.html
