Nerdy Must Haves

Happy Meal Dress; I am absolutely in love with Bonne Chance dresses, even though I am yet to be able to purchase one. They have cute collars and kawaii designs, so what else do I need in my life? I especially love this quirky one because I often don’t get to eat fun things with all my allergies, so I opt to wear them instead as often as possible.

Potter Umbrella; In Miami, it is almost a necessity (no, no it is) to have an umbrella on hand at any moment. You never know when the sky is going to open up and ruin your day. The fact that I can have a Potter themed umbrella would make toting the enormous thing around worthwhile.

I Believe in Stardust; I am instantly drawn to anything mystical and magical in nature, so of course, I need this adorable pin from Ban.do. I love the simplicity and the pastel colors. I think it would look absolutely fabulous on my growing fandom jacket. Who says magic can’t be a fandom?

Anchorman Pencils; Who doesn’t love Anchorman? Watching this film is seriously one of the few simple pleasures in my life (no, I still have not brought myself to watch the train wreck of a sequel) and I love that some of its signature quotes are immortalized on pencils. This would be so great as swag for a Geek Girl Brunch!

Holiday Gift Guide

Guys. This is it.
The last day of November, which means that Christmas is officially upon us. I am lucky enough to have finished 96% of my shopping and can sit pretty, but I know a lot of you are still on the hunt, trying to find the best gifts for family and friends. If some of those on your list are of the geeky variety, then I’ve got a fun round up for you!

Minted: Holiday Card Reveal

img_2776

As you all probably remember, I teamed up with Minted to host a pretty killer giveaway. We had two lucky winners that snagged gift cards that basically gave them the opportunity to score free holiday cards! I picked up some cards of my own and I cannot wait to share them with you all!

I absolutely love that you can choose between three sizes because I honestly like more petite cards, so the smaller size was definitely my go-to. The quality is fantastic – the cards are sturdy and made of thick card stock. Plus, how can you not love that each design is made by an independent artist? We personally chose the Good All Year design by Amy Payne because it just fits with our lighthearted personalities. Plus, we knew we just wanted Luna in our cards this year (it’s hard enough to get her ready for a shoot, much less the three of us these days), so the more playful vibe worked great with a toddler picture.

What I Wore; Fantastic Beast

img_2648

The magic of the Harry Potter universe means a whole lot to me. I started reading the books when I met my now husband-then boyfriend. I immediately got hooked and Harry and his gang became my best friends while I went away to grad school alone, without knowing a soul in a new city. I have vivid memories of laying on my dorm room bed in the dark, completely transported to the world of Hogwarts. As the kids say, “it’s real to us.” That’s why this new film, Fantastic Beats and Where to Find Them, had big shoes to fill. But I was so pleasantly surprised it did. And I’m pretty sure it filled 15 other shoes as well because it was brilliant. And magical. And made me feel every emotion possible. Can we just all agree on how great it is to have the wizarding world back with us?

With that said, I wore my very first LulaRoe purchase to see the film opening weekend, and I can understand the hype. I purchased a Cassie skirt, which is a form fitted pencil skirt. You guys know I like my ultra-feminine outfits, so this just seemed like it would be the best fit for my style. I paired it with a Gryffindor crop top, my fandom jacket, my new favorite booties + my wand, naturally. I mean, you didn’t think this witch would leave home without it, right? ;)

What I Wore: The Last Unicorn

img_2502

As usual, Geek Girl Brunch days are my favorite days. It provides a creative outlet for my mind, and allows for some very coveted “me” time. Being an officer has been so fulfilling, and I can’t wait to continue planning some killer events with my bestie. With that said, I knew exactly what I was going to go for when we started planning for a Fantastic Beasts-themed brunch. I had gotten this incredible unicorn headpiece as part of a SDCC swag bag from The Fashionably Nerdy party. The minute I saw it, I was obsessed but had never had the opportunity to use it. Achievement: unlocked.

I challenged myself to find the rest of the outfit in my own closet, which turned out to be a cinch. I love my two tulle skirts so that was a given, and paired with my favorite basic crop top and pointy flats, I was ready to channel those dark + mystical unicorn vibes. I had extra fun with my makeup and realized hot pink eyeshadow can be a great every day look (I’m totally serious).

Not going to lie, I may attempt to rock this look on the daily in hopes that I may actually magically transform into a unicorn, so you have been warned.
