Lunatick ILNP Sephora Haul



How’ve you all been? 

It’s been just ridiculously busy for me. Not surprisingly so you might say but this past few weeks have been much more so. 

I’ve been playing in the mornings as well for 2 hours. It’s not been daily but it’s been almost so. I’d like to keep it in some form or possibly switching a stream or two to the brunching hours, but I’m not sure what the end result will be. I’ve been having weird issues with only certain games not exporting over and it’s been almost a week of trying! I don’t want to have to start recording while I stream, as I don’t think my processor and memory will be enough so if it continues a venue switch may have to happen. I’ll of course keep you posted but it’s business as usual for the Klutzy Gamer Twitch and YouTube. And let’s not forget my weekly streams on Great Geekwads too! 

So beyond the usual gaming routine it’s been a busy couple weeks for behind the scenes stuff like taxes and spring outdoor work. I’m filming and have two videos ready to go up for you on the RaineCaster YouTube. They’re being edited as I learn how to insert and it’s a slow thing since it’s only me working on everything, but I promise they’ll be up sooner than later. 

In all this Parapopulous has been gaining fans! And I’m excitedly seeing it and my Klutzy Gamer growing. I know the shops will as well once the items I’ve been attempting to work on amidst all this get up and the shops get a bit of a tweak. This must begin to feel like lip service but I have been working away at things for them, though admittedly not nearly as fast as I’d want to.

It’s hard to think about much else with all this going on but my family and in particular my dad have been taking a lot of my attention. This will be his last week of chemo and radiation and he is starting to really feel the effects of it. After Monday he’ll have a wait of a few weeks and then surgery at the start of June. It’s perhaps a front he’s giving us all but he’s doing well, all things considered. Though I, and much more so he I’m sure, can’t wait for things to get back to normal. Or as normal as they get for me LOL. 

So lovelies, I’m off to attempt another try of seeing if those two nights will export over, fingers crossed they join all the others that have managed to export with no issues and work on getting one video up on RainCaster. Don’t forget there’ll be a new Parapopolous blog out tomorrow too and as always a livestream tonight! 

au revoir



P.S. Don’t forget there’s a Facebook page for all my projects as well and give ’em a like if you happen to drop in. You can find them through the Raine of Iris hub or the links here. And “May the fourth be with you”! 

Happy almost Friday

Another long week and another week of being slightly behind but LOL what else is new.

So been busy streaming on Twitch  6 nights on gmeraine and 1 on GreatGeekwads. Of course there’s extra streams here and there and then there’s the scheduling and archiving to YouTube that take up extra time but it’s amazing to be able to hang out with my rainestorm. Looking forward to CoD this weekend since its been a while. 

Loving the IRL & behind the scenes channel, though I’m not sure what to do with it sometimes. I think it’s a nice peek behind the scenes and a glimpse into the person behind the shops, streams, podcast and blogs. Count on it being random because it’s just how I am. I hate that I can’t name it because of he changes to YouTube but, we’ll get to their count and be able to do it soon.

Parapopulous has been busy and there’ll be a new blog post tomorrow. I’m liking the more personal post and though I always planned to do that its nice to have my sea legs. I’m not sure what way I’m going to go with the next post so be sure to follow by RSS feed, on WordPress or through bloglovin’. And of course the podcast is available with direct download or iTunes subscription.

The shops are in limbo. I mean they’re up (except Magpie Muddles) but they need some love and updates. And I will be changing my deviantart to RaineofIris at some point. I have soooooo many ideas to get to you and I promise I will sooner rather than later. 

Well, it’s almost stream time so I’d better get going and get set up. I’ll chatter at you again soon.

au revoir



P.S. Yep, that’s a screenshot 🤓

Holy Haul! 

Veering into the very behind the scenes on this blog post. So courtesy of a friend, I got to go on what I consider to be quite the haul on Monday.   

 It was quite the adventure and I was like a fish out of water, high end brands are stuff I see in magazines but not in my closet LOL. Nothing against them but $50 jeans make my heart pound and me sweat. I was definitely in my element as the adventure started with our stop at a Value Village where I picked up a huge bag of goodness for $25!!!  And yes that is a knockoff Dior bag that I’ll put up for grabs once I’ve tried it out a time or two for spring.

From there it was on to the surprise shopping location aka Toronto Premium Outlets. Where I, as a far girl, figured I’d get purses and some jewellery but did far better. (FYI, I’m a size 14-16 and there are no plus size speciality shops currently here.) I got lucky at La Vie En Rose with 4 new bras (two of them under $20) and a buy one get one 50%! And though they aren’t exactly what I’d been looking for, they fit and followed me home along with a fluffy mini poncho.  

So I need jeans. I hate shopping. I have a hard time finding jeans, or clothes in general. I was going to walk by Lucky Brand and I have no words for how glad I am my friend said go see because the two best fitting pair of jeans EVER followed me out. It’s actually one pair in 2 fabric weights and colours but holy wow! They fit amazing and were buy one get one half price and the shopgirls were amazing!  

We were in and out of almost every shop, though I stayed clear of the Body Shop and the Second Cup LOL.  I also got to touch my first Burberry and Kate Spade bags really wanted me to bring them home! I did find a bag at Bentley on for 70% off so yay!!  

And almost as shocking as the high end shopping was the addition to my 2 pairs of shorts with these I found at Walmart. And of course more candles, because candles and coffee are life.  

So that’s my adventure / haul. I did a vlog of it on my rainecaster YouTube that you can watch here

au revoir



P.S. I’m working on links and updates so look forward to another blog post very soon with info on the streams, shops & casts.


So, I come barreling in today with so much exciting news! Though I missed my deadline for a potential spot at a very exclusive juried show, I’m found such a surprise in my inbox yesterday.  

I’m very unexpectedly being featured in a spotlight over on handmadefuzzy tomorrow! How exciting, such an amazing surprise! Do check it out on Friday January 29th 2016 after 6am E over on handmadefuzzy

I’m also excited to be back livestreaming on Twitch after the test run of livestreaming on YouTube. I loved YouTube’s  streaming set (up I’ll always be archiving to them and I’ve started adding exclusive bite sized clips as well) but I missed the perks of Moobot and TwitchAlerts. It’s been great fun getting back into the routine and I’m extatic to say currently I’m at 45 followers on Twitch and 20 subscribers on YouTube and all with no big partner or promoter, just me hopping on and doing my thing. I love it and I’m always so happy to know you like it too! 

I know things haven’t been up to speed or outputting exactly the way I want and there’s still tweaks to make, but I promise you it’s getting there and I’m grateful for your support as I do. I’m also thankful of this little community from all my projects, thank you for being wonderful amazing RaineStorms! 

au revoir



Thursday means …

A new blog post on Parapopulous and of course it’s Tube Thursday tonight at 8pm E for me as the Klutzy Gamer. I livestream every night but Sunday and all except Thursday are on Twitch. And look out for some Valentine news tomorrow! I’ll be back to update you with links in about 24 hours. 

au revoir
