Holiday Cards by Minted: Giveaway!

I know you may be thinking it is way too early to be scheming about holiday cards, but my friends…the time is nearing. We are only a few weeks away from the big guy in the red suit, and I’m here to be your trusty reminder: book those shoots. Book ‘em because you are going to want to snag some of these beautiful holiday cards from Minted’s 2016 collection.

While searching through, I was not only happy to see so many great designs from independent artists, but also to see so many kinds of families represented in their selections: same sex, kids, childless, and fur babies! It’s refreshing to see a modern perspective on what a “family unit” is these days. With that said, these are some of my favorite designs of the bunch:

I personally like my cards to be modern, understated and inclusive of all my family and friends that may not celebrate the same. I like a simple, positive message and I never say no to a little gold foil sparkle. I’ll be revealing which card I eventually chose, along with our corresponding holiday photoshoot, here on the blog, so make sure you stick around!

And I won’t be the only one revealing gorgeous Minted cards for the holidays. Two of my readers will be winning a $125 gift card to Minted to spend on your own holiday cards! Think of it as Christmas coming a little early. ;)
All you have to do is follow this link!
The giveaway will last one week (ends Halloween) + winners will be chosen shortly after. Good luck everyone!

Life with Luna: Strangeways Studio {+ GIVEAWAY}

I think I have to keep my eyes peeled because someone is trying to steal my job. Namely, little baby Luna is getting way too good at these ootd’s. She’s such a ham, and although she hates getting dressed these days (you would think I was killing her!), she has a blast grinning for the camera. Definitely my daughter. ;)

All of you know that I’m a fan of shopping small whenever I can, and that I adore finding fandom related outfits for the babe. This can be super hard to do, especially if you are trying to remain on budget. This is why I am totally obsessed with StrangeWays Studio. I personally think they have the best selection of fandom onesies out there that won’t break your bank in half. And it doesn’t hurt that the majority of their inventory are for fandoms I absolutely adore. Potter? Parks & Rec? Doctor Who? Yeah, sign me up.

You may remember a much tinier Luna showcasing their stuff on the blog before, and we are just as in love a few months later. I can’t recommend their soft and stretchy onesies enough. Luna is currently sporting their 6-12 month size and I can see her wearing them for a very long time. They hold up to multiple wears and washes very well too, which is important.

Geek Girl Gang Giveaway!

Who wants to win the first Geek Girl Gang pin set?
They sold out in the first week they were released, which was so humbling and amazing for me. I had always wanted to start my own business and product line. I knew I wanted it to reflect my personality and what I wished there was more of out there in terms of fashion/accessories for the modern geek girl. I never thought that something I created would be wanted by other people, and it’s an amazing feeling.

My husband and I are hard at work building a website and getting all the logistics figured out on how to open a small business, while I just finished designing the 2nd pin set. Look out for that set to be released on Instagram before the opening of the site and our first shirts. We are trying to set our sights at officially opening as a legit business in mid-summer, and I hope to do a little South Florida convention tour.

But! In the meantime, here is your chance to win our first set, which includes the four 1″ buttons featured above. It would be the perfect flair for your SDCC outfit this July! All you have to do is:

  • Add GeekGirlGang on Instagram
  • Comment to this post with what you would like a future product release to be on Geek Girl Gang!

A winner will be chosen at random a week from today, Wednesday, the 25th!
Good luck, geek girls!

What I Wore: My Backpacks Got Jets {Sent From Mars Giveaway}

Christmas season is upon us, and for those geeky individuals like ourselves, this holds a little more meaning this year: Star Wars! That’s right. We are mere weeks away from the premiere of The Force Awakens, which is incredible to wrap my head around. I totally remember seeing the first teaser, and feel like that was just yesterday. A lot has happened in a year for me – little did I know while watching that teaser that I would be a mom to an amazing baby girl and collaborating with such an amazing shop as Sent From Mars!

I had been a big fan of Mari’s work before we both were nominated for Geekie Awards, but that’s when our relationship blossomed. Mari is beyond talented and makes the most beautiful fandom-inspired leather clutches that are sure to make your wallets weep. I had such a fun time putting together a Boba Fett-inspired outfit around this one amazing clutch (& was pleased I am starting to fit into some pre-pregnancy clothes), and am even more excited that I can give you guys the opportunity to snag one of your own in time for the premiere!
