JustFab & Betches are giving sassy fashion friends a great valentines gift with their newest collaboration. It’s the fourth time they’ve created a capsule collection for women of all sizes who want style with surprising details.
They have looks for any mood in the season must have color Rose Gold <scream>. I am simply mad over the jacket (yes I’m repeating myself but DAMN it’ cute) and the origami slip on tennis shoes in gray are my new summer neutral to wear on casual weekend outings The satchel has the perfect amount of metallic sheen to go from office to drinks with my friends <sigh> but I just can’t help daydream about the silver tassle loafer they bring me back to my Catholic School Girl days but all we had was Navy, Black & Burgandy! I want to buy these & the olive bag and team them up with a cute modern plaid skirt, white blouse and sweater for a little schoolgirl style!
I’d love to wear the camouflage jacket with a pair of white jeans & t-shirt and those black boots when I’m feeling like a bad ass feminist. The soft with tough would be perfect for a casual day at work, running errands or just protesting injustice! and YES I’d
grab the rose gold satchel cause this is how THIS woman likes to dress!
Betches X JustFab why are you coming for all my money.

Am excited to get my Gamer Chick on with the new Walking Dead: The Telltale Series – A New Frontier game that will be out in time for holidays!
The Walking Dead: The Telltale Series – A New Frontier
Epic Two-Episode Premiere Debuts December 20th
with ‘Ties That Bind’ Part I & Part II
After watching the mid winter finale of the series am already suffering from The Walking Dead withdrawal!
The launch of the new season in the acclaimed series will be a special two-part premiere with 2 episodes on the SAME DAY!
Episode One: ‘Ties That Bind’ Part I & Episode Two: ‘Ties That Bind’ Part II.
We get to play the game as we get to know Javier, his family and Clementine all trying to survive the Zombie scourge plaguing the world. As they explore the Walking Dead Universe they will get to meet new and old characters from Comic Books/TV. One familiar face will be Jesus and a few others that you have to wait to see when the games are released! As they leave the ‘safety’ of their home and see what the ‘New Frontier’ means .. I’m going out on a limb and say ZOMBIES <scream>
The new series will have episodes and the first two will premier digitally worldwide starting Tuesday, December 20th on PC from the Telltale Online Store, Steam and other digital distribution services. Also on Xbox Games Store for Xbox One® and on the PlayStation®Network for PlayStation 4. The episode will be available the same day for compatible iOS devices via the App Store and for compatible Android-based devices via Google Play. Follow for updates on additional release dates and platforms.
Beginning in February, the series will also be available for purchase on a special ‘Season Pass Disc’ for PlayStation 4 and Xbox One consoles, which will include the premiere episodes for the third season, as well as access to all subsequent episodes in the five episode season for download as they become available.
Users can pre-order the season for their favorite platform now by visiting https://telltale.com/series/the-walking-dead-a-new-frontier/#buy. As a special bonus, PlayStation 4 digital preorders also receive a complimentary copy of The Walking Dead: Season Two and The Walking Dead: Michonne; while Steam users receive a discount of 10% for preordering.
When family is all you have left… how far will you go to protect it? Years after society was ripped apart by undead hands, pockets of civilization emerge from the chaos. But at what cost? Can the living be trusted on this new frontier? As Javier, a young man determined to protect his family, you meet a young girl who has experienced her own unimaginable loss. Her name is Clementine, and your fates are bound together in a story where every choice you make could be your last.
The Walking Dead: A New Frontier will act as both a new beginning for players fresh to the series and unfamiliar with Clementine, as well as a continuation for players who have experienced Seasons One and Two. Players new to the series will be able to start a story that is tailored to this new beginning. Players continuing onward from prior seasons will have multiple options for quickly configuring their tailored backstory, or importing past save files from various platforms. Additional information on this feature will be detailed in the coming week.

Not too long ago I had the distinct pleasure of spending my day at two very different, but equally as informing, conventions around the LA area.
Dwelling on all the Designs
I started my day–after spending 20 minutes looking for parking–at the LA Convention Center for the 11th annual Dwell on Design show. While there, I was able to browse around and check out up and coming architecture, furniture, appliances, comforts, and much more, for the modern age.
Interior decorating meets Pinterest with Decorist and ATG stores.com.
I learned a lot about prefab housing from LivingHomes’ new spinoff Plant Prefab, and was even able to tour a few full-scale model houses. I also got to sit in the world’s most comfortable bean-bag chair from LoveSac, and get a massage from $8,000 god of a machine.
Lovely examples from VintageView Wine Racks
From interior decorators that can use your very own Pinterest boards to create your dream home–thanks Decorist– to wine racks specialized to your specifications, I have seen the future of housing, and I’m excited for more.
So after speaking with a few of the vendors and enjoying my second cup of coffee for the day, it was time to head out of DTLA and make my way to Pasadena for the 2nd annual Politicon Convention.
In only it’s second year, Politicon has firmly established itself as what Huffington Post calls “the Coachella of politics”. From Sarah Palin to 10-year old boys the line-up was extremely diverse.
Should we #legalizeit? From right: Mat Ferner, Nicole Boxer, Jordan Carlos, John Ratzenberger, and Hal Sparks.
I had the pleasure of sitting in on a panel about the legalization of weed with a great and lively group of debaters. Matt Ferner, Nicole Boxer, Jordan Carlos, Hal Sparks, and John Ratzenberger were all great at making their respective arguments and respecting one another’s positions.
Me with stand up comedian and recurring Colbert Report character, Jordan Carlos
Next and sadly finally, I enjoyed a hilarious comedy show with the likes of Jay Pharoah
Darrell Hammond, Al Madrigal, and Greg Proops Toure. All were perfect at keeping the audience laughing while still talking about social issues and the political climate of our country–no easy feat!
Me with SNL’s best Kanye and President Obama impersonator, Jay Pharoah.
Eventually I had to say goodbye to my new friends at Politicon and make my way back home. And after 2o minutes of being lost in Pasadena, not able to find my car, I did just that.
Thank you to Cherry LA for letting me tag along on an amazing Sunday!

I adore the Pyrrha line for Game of Thrones. It appeals to my fangirl side with my beloved Starks but also hits my fashionable sweet spot with the tough pieces that would go with stylish tough preppy chic look! I fell in love with the House of Stark but they have items that represent all of the Houses of Westeros.
The sun and rough hewn design of this ring is tough and the depth makes it a visually interesting statement ring that will be timeless.

This is a Geek Gift to be promised over the holiday season since it will not be released until April but it’s one gorgeous gift for any Star Wars or Al Williamson fan. IDW will be releasing the late artist Al Williamson’s Star Wars: The Empire Strikes Back stories in 2016. The collection will include issues #39 – #44 of the monthly Marvel Star Wars Comic, Star Wars #50, #98 and the Star Wars: Return of the Jedi mini series will be included.
The Artist’s Edition will be 160 pages in hardcover (14×21) perfect for display or just for someone’s collection of art books.
“Al loved drawing Star Wars,” said Williamson’s wife, Cori Williamson. “It’s a science fiction swashbuckler, the kind of story that really appealed to his sensibilities. As a lover and collector of classic comic-book and comic strip art, I think he would have been thrilled to see his work presented in this format.”
George Lucas commented after Williamson’s passing in 2010, “I was thrilled to be able to have Al depicting those early extended Star Wars adventures for the comic books and newspapers. In capturing the actors who portrayed the characters, he brought the feeling of the films to the page as few other artists have been able to do.”
You may not know Al William’s name but if you love comic books/graphic novels you’ve seen his work starting back in 1950 with EC Comics. In the 1960s he took Alex Raymond’s classic comic strip creation Flash Gordon to the comic book with his iconic reimagining. He also worked on comic strips that included X-9: Secret Agent Corrigan and the Star Wars newspaper strip. His work earned him an Eisner Award and he was inducted into the Will Eisner Comic-Book Hall of Fame in 2000.
“The collaboration between IDW and Marvel has produced some of the most exceptional collections of reprinted original comic book material ever to be offered,” says Marvel SVP Sales & Marketing DavidGabriel. “Al Williamson’s Star Wars: The Empire Strikes Back Artist’s Edition of the original Marvel Comics film adaptation is a brightly glowing star within the galaxy of immaculate Star Wars content.”

HBO® and Brewery Ommegang to re-release first two beers in popular Game of Thrones® collaboration has the PERFECT gift for the GOT Fan and Ale/Stout Connoisseur!
Brewery Ommegang & HBO show Game of Thrones – Iron Throne Blonde Ale and Take the Black Stout
It’s the rerelease of the first two brews in the collaboration series not seen since King Joffrey’s wicked reign! This is a great addition for anyone who wants to play the Game of Thrones aka who will rule the Seven Kingdom. Brewery Ommegang‘s beer finder will show retail and bar locations by zip code when the beers come to market.
Iron Throne Blonde Ale has a slightly hazy golden amber hue. The head is full and fluffy. The finish is crisp, backed by a touch of spice and hops. The aroma is a bit grassy with a hint of lemon fruitiness from the lemon peel. The taste is lightly malty, rounded by honey malt sweetness. Iron Throne Blonde Ale is 6.5% ABV.
Take the Black Stout is deep black in hue, with a full tan head. Aromas include dark chocolate, caramel malt, earthy hops, and a touch of fruitiness. Tastes include chocolate, dark coffee, and rich malt character. The beer has light, balanced roastiness aroma and taste. The clean hop bitterness converges with a slight woody character and spiciness. The finish offers sweet malt character giving way to spicy, earthy, hop bitterness. Take the Black Stout is 7.0% ABV.
This is a major treat since Iron Throne Blonde Ale was released in 2013 and brewed at only 25% of the volume of the most recent beer the Three-Eyed Raven, which hit stores this spring timed to Season 5 of the show. Bottle shops across the country sold out in days, while bars poured through kegs in hours. Take the Black Stout was brewed at twice the volume of Iron Throne and still sold out quickly. Fans who missed out on both of these popular brews, and those who can’t wait to try them again, will finally have a chance this fall.
“We had no idea what the reaction to a Game of Thrones beer would be when this all started,” said Bill Wetmore, Marketing Director for Brewery Ommegang. “We were blown away by the runaway success of these first two beers and are very excited to give loyal fans another chance to enjoy them.”
If your a secret Santa at work and want a fun gift or stocking stuffer or just have a tshirt nut well you can’t go wrong with a fun tshirt for your geek. You don’t have to go to a convention to find a tshirt that will appeal to any fan. You can find a few fun ones at Kohls, Target (affordable) or Nordtroms (midrange) or try eBay for a original tshirt from back in the day. You can buy a good shirt from about $9.99 and more depending on your price range from Target to Nordstroms and more online. One of my favorite is Somethinggeeky where you can work with them to design items from sweatshirts to skirt if your not a DIYer!! But if you are crafty you can grab fabric paint and jewels to personalize any of the shirts and bedazzle them for the festive party season or just to make the t-shirt your own for year round fun.
A few of my favorites as I obsess over The Force Awakens!
