Nerdy Must Haves

Unicorn garland; I’m pretty sure NoodleDollNelly is the cutest shop on Etsy. Ever. All their items are sure to make you smile ear to ear, and if they don’t, you may not have a soul. Sorry. One of my favorites of theirs is the unicorn garland. It would make the cutest addition to your little girl’s room, or lets be honest, your own room. You could also use it for photoshoots, parties, team meetings (if you are the best boss ever), etc. You get my drift. Unicorns are multipurpose. Get on my level.

Crybaby Usagi pin; Sure, Usagi is super annoying during her cry baby early years. But it’s what makes her transformation even more satisfying. If you are a little on the emotional side (and boy am I ever after becoming a mom), you will definitely appreciate her sad visage on your denim jacket in the form of this killer pin. Also, check out the rest of elorasaurus‘ shop – it’s full of adorable.

Mother of Wildlings tank; Everyone is hyped for Game of Thrones, and everyone has seen the “Mother of Dragons” tanks, tees, totes, everything. I like this new take on the “mother of” series. Ygritte was the best, and we all still miss her sass and power, so who wouldn’t want to birth a wildling? I used to want a dragons shirt, but this is one is now top of my list.

Happiest Rey on Earth tee; I am a huge fan of BeepBoopBeep Clothing, and this is one of my favorite designs. It actually made me tear up a little when I first saw it! Rey entering The Magic Kingdom with little BB8 in tow! I definitely am going to snag one of these for Luna’s first birthday (she’s going to visit the Mouse!), and I may have us rock a little matchy matchy action – just don’t tell the hubs! ;)

 

ps; Happy May the 4th!!!

 

Geek Girl Gang Launch

geekgirlgangmain

I’ve wanted to start my own business for a very long time now, but I was always scared. In the words of Empire Records’ Lucas, “in the immortal words of The Doors, the time to hesitate is through.” It is time to launch my own product line, and I’m beyond excited. I’m going to take things slow and do them the right way. Geek Girl Gang will offer both pins and tees that cater to the hip geek girl. The kind of girl that enjoys a good cocktail with her latest issue of The Wicked and The Divine. The kind of girl that is not ashamed to shout her love of fandom, while also having her shit together. Basically, the kind of girls I know and love. Powerful, intelligent ladies that get down with geekery. Chances are, if you are reading this blog, you are part of that gang and I want to salute you!

I am launching on Instagram (so follow GeekGirlGang now!) with my inaugural pin set. The set of 4 pins will go for $6 including shipping (to the US, contact me for international rates), and you can comment on the post in order to be invoiced. I am currently working on designing my first tee and hope to have it available before the summer convention season! I’d love all your support by adding the account and spreading the word. I’m really excited to go down this new road, but also a bit terrified.

I’d love any feedback, so share what you think in the comments!

What I Wore: Mother of Dragons

Our most recent Geek Girl Brunch was held at Earls in Dadeland Mall and it was Game of Thrones themed. The season 6 premiere is upon us (so, so excited) and I wanted to pay homage to my favorite character, Daenerys Targaryen. I knew I didn’t want to go full cosplay, but rather casually by emboding her vibe in something more wearable. I found such a perfect dress from Forever 21 – I don’t think I could have done better! What I love the most is that the pale blue maxi is absolutely on trend for upcoming summer days, so I see myself getting a lot of use out of it.
