At thirty five years old in the heart of the summer, I find myself googling costume ideas. No, not for October 31st. But for August 22-25th in the heart of Toronto. Why you ask? Well it’s one of my favourite times of year again – it’s FAN EXPO Canada. From Pokémon to Nintendo, cosplay to fan art, we’re in for one of the best #FANEXPOcanada years yet and I’m here to tell you why.Continue Reading Read More »
I’ve never been one to follow trends or fall in line. My mom stills tells the story of me in kindergarten being put in time out to think about what I did. When the teacher turned back around from the chalk board, I was back in circle time. When she asked me why I wasn’t in the corner, I promptly replied “You told me to think about what I did.

Sounds like a silly question, doesn’t it? Most days I don’t know what I’m making us for dinner when I get home and after I walk the dog. But that is of course because I don’t have the foresight that I do today in telling you that it is OFFICIALLY 100 days until the launch of Pokémon Sword and Pokémon Shield, which is launching on November 15. To share in the excitement, I thought I’d share some fun facts with you about the launch and why both Julio & I can’t wait to join in on the excitement with you all!Continue Reading Read More »
