OH EM GEE Surprise Announcement!

What is up!?

Guess what ladies and gents? Today is my birthday! Yep, I turn 22 today and there’s your surprise announcement…


Though it may be my birthday there’s an actual surprise that I’ve been waiting to announce…


The STR Crew and I are extremely proud to announce the Official Simply Taylor Rae Twitch Channel: STRCrew!!!

Why is it called “STRCrew” rather than “Simply Taylor Rae”? Well that’s because I want Kyler and Anthony to make awesome use of our Twitch channel too! We are all super excited to expand Simply Taylor Rae into the gaming world and what better way than to stream on Twitch?

With Twitch we will be able to stream 3DS games and possibly others when they become available to us. So far we will be sure to stream Shiny Hunts on Pokemon ORAS and XY, battles on Super Smash Bros, Mario Party, and others! We may even do some crazy online games like Hammerhead High or something ridiculous like that.

We don’t have a specific date for our premier stream as we are currently in the process of tailoring our computer for streaming. I do hope that we will have the premier sometime at the end of April or the beginning of May. In the mean time we ask that you please help us build up all of the hype for our channel and help us reach at least 500 followers! Our goal is to become partnered with Twitch! Let’s make it happen!!!

With all of that said, THANK YOU ALL SO MUCH for your amazing support of Simply Taylor Rae in the past 2+ years. We hope to continue bringing awesomeness to the internet and to Twitch when the time comes! You guys are freakin’ awesome and we are so thankful for every reader! I hope you all have an amazing weekend and as always…

REMEMBER: It’s still my birthday….HAR HAR.

Recent Purchase: Star Wars x Vans from Journeys

What’s a Happening!?

Oops… I just realized that it’s been a while since my last “Recent Purchase” post. Thought I’ve bought a few items since then…BUT I’m bringing it back with a super cool purchase today. I’ve waited so long to buy these bad boys and, with the help of Anthony, I finally did. Say hello the Star Wars x Vans from Journeys.

recent purchase

Like I said, I’ve waited months and months to buy these babies. So when Anthony and I came across them at a Journeys, up north, he not only persuaded me to buy them he went half with me on a pair and BOOM! Here they are in all of their glory! This pair ran about $60 in store and online  which is how much we paid. A wee bit pricey but, for a Star Wars collector like myself, it felt like a valid investment.

the box

Honestly, these shoes are amazing because they feature my favorite Star Wars character; Darth Vader. They also feature other well-known characters such as Luke Skywalker, Chewbacca, some storm troopers. Even R2-D2 makes a minor appearance on the shoelaces! The soles remain the same as most Vans shoes do, but the insoles have both the Star Wars and the Vans logo printed in sight on them. Overall I am super excited with this purchase and I can’t wait to wear them out and about on the town!

Alrighty, well that’s it for today! I hope you all enjoyed the post and guess what!? That super awesome surprise announcement is coming up TOMORROW! Can you guess what it is? Here at home I’ve gotten all sorts of guesses and none of them have been correct! I can’t wait to tell you all. Anyways, I hope you all have a fantastic week and weekend! Remember to stay safe and as always…
