Hello 2016...  
Part of 2015 was a big pile of crap, until September/October and here's hoping for an awesome 2016.

At the beginning of the year my finances were in the shitter and I was living in a dive place. In September I got an awesome new apartment, I started school after work on my way to completing a Payroll degree which is pretty cool and I have addressed my finance issues and I have a plan to be debt free by next June.

This year was also probably the year of lootcrate and Nerdblock. I discovered these two gems from someone at work. I think I have like 3 subrscriptions going. I love getting these cool gifts and hey if anyone is interested I can start posting pics on what I got each month.

In fandom news I mostly watched nothing on my actual tv. except Doctor Who. Its the only thing I watch live. I really got inot Jessica Jones and Daredevil.

Oh and can we talk about how awesome Star Wars was? I watched it twice in the theatre.

Hopefully anyone still alive on here is doing okay.

Yeah, you should do unboxing reviews! I've been sort of tempted by the Nerdblock & Lootcrate stuff, but I feel like I dislike a lot of the "juggernaut" fandoms that are included. (For example, there are 4 fandoms listed in January's Nerd Block spoilers, and for 2 of them, I'm like, '...ughhhhhhh,' even though I really like the other 2!)

I am super crazy addicted to beauty subscription boxes. I've had 2 subscription boxes for several years -- Graze (snacks) & Julep (mostly nail polish) -- and then this year I decided to treat myself to a new one since I got hired full time.... and then another one... and then another one... and then... I actually just got off the waitlist to join the swaps section over at MySubscriptionAddiction today & have been poking through there like crazy!

I loooooved Jessica Jones!

Some of the nerdblock subscriptions are really hit and miss. The stuff I don't like I just give to my nephews.

I've been debating a beauty subscription mostly cause I'm inept at makeup

Lucky nephews!

Some of the beauty boxes are actually really good if you're a beginner -- there are ones that are super cheap because they typically only send out small-ish samples, so you can try more things & not have to pay full price for a full-size product you may not want! I'd give you some recs, but I'm not sure how the companies are in Canada!

Please post pics of your boxes, they look pretty cool.
I've had one beauty subscription box for almost two years now, and I've just subscribed to a food box. I love that, it's like getting a gift every month (you forget very quickly that you paid to get it! :P)

I love Star Wars too! I watched it once during the holidays, and I'll probably go watch it one more time soon.
