Being the total geek that I am, it comes with a certain amount of fandom window shopping freakouts. I’m assuming if you’re reading this you know what I’m talking about.
That moment when a new product floats across your Instagram, Twitter, email, etc that just makes you drop everything and squeal with joy. I MUST have it! I NEED to have it!
These moments are often, and because of this, I can’t always afford to indulge in these impulses. So instead I add these must-have goodies to a list for when I do have the extra cash and want to reward myself with a pretty nerdy thing.
These are my must-have finds of the week that I’ve either bought or can’t wait to get my hands on. 💕#TakeMyMoney
Studio Ghibli Ponyo Romper by Her Universe
Studio Ghibli ✅Ponyo ✅Cute summery romper ✅
What more really needs to be said? The new Ponyo line from Her Universe is adorable on many levels, but this romper immediately had me gasping from cuteness. It’s a little early yet for summer wear, but this will definitely be added to my wardrobe before Con season kiks off.
Harry Potter – A Journey Through A History of Magic by British Library
I bought a copy of this for my HP obsessed nephews for Christmas and they loved it, convincing me that I need to add it to my library as well. It’s a special release with the British Library who hosted an amazing exhibition that will actually be coming to NYC this October. The book is full of great little snippets and illustrations and perfect for the die-hard Harry Potter fan.
Bob’s Burgers Kuchi Kopi Nightlight by BoxLunch
So, I love Louise Belcher. I’d say it’s a struggle, but I’d be lying.
Last year at SDCC UCC Distributing released an exclusive glow-in-the-dark Kuchi Kopi and I missed them. One of my friends ran by me on the show floor waving one in his arms making me neon green with envy. So when I saw this awesome night light I had all the feels.
Side note: I’m trying to be good and not buy this kind of stuff for myself, but if a link lands in my husband’s inbox near my birthday we’ll just call it fate.
Alice in Wonderland Oven Mitt and Pot Holder Set by Collision Ware
Alice in Wonderland is one of my favorite books and mixing my fandoms/fav literary characters with housewares is always a win. Their potholders! Everyone needs potholders guys! But seriously, Collision Ware is one of my favorited shops on Etsy and a go to for fun gifts for my able baking friends. There are tons of great designs on her site, so do yourself a favor and check them out.
POP! 8-Bit: Stranger Things – Barb – ECCC Exclusive by Funko
Hi. My name is AJ and I’m a Funko addict. But – I mean – who isn’t really?
I’ve been really really good at keeping my Funko Pop! impulse buying pixie demon voices at bay lately. But seriously, this one was a grip the sides of my desk, take a moment and talk it out sort of discoveries. So far I’ve held off on snapping one up, but even as I write this my credit card sits behind me… In my purse… Whispering sweet plasticy Funko nothings across the room.
