A Very Potter Mother’s Day with TeeFury & JordanDene {COUPON CODE INCLUDED}

IMG_8978

Last year was my first Mother’s Day as a mommy, even though little Luna was still in my belly. It was the day we revealed the gender to my close family and I remember it being such a special day. This year, I actually have a little one to hold and love and call my own. What a difference a year makes! I’ve learned so much since then, about so many things – one of which is leggings are a mom’s best friend.

I love these TeeFury leggings because they leave me feeling comfy and geek chic. Although the Potter emoji’s are my favorites, they have a whole lot to choose from so check them out! Not one to leave my little munchkin out of the geek fashion game, Luna is rocking her best Jordan Dene. If you want the perfect comfy geek wear for your little fangirls or boys, definitely look into her Younglings collection!

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!!!

 

Cuddle + Kind: The Little Collection

DSC_1013 copy

Remember when I featured Cuddle + Kind way back before little Luna was born?
Well they have been able to donate over 200,000 meals to children in need since their launch, which is amazing. They are now growing their family by releasing smaller dolls, The Little Collection. These little dolls do a lot of good! All nine of the original, ethically produced, hand-knit dolls will be available in a new 13” size. Each doll is handmade by their team in Peru using premium natural cotton. The best part is, each “little” provides 10 meals to children in need- the same as a regular doll!

I think these are the perfect size for your pint-sized kiddos, much like Luna! They will make great cuddle buddies for your tiny ones, and are absolutely adorable to boot! Get your own here!

Life with Luna: 6 Months

6months

A half birthday. What?

How on earth did my tiny IUGR baby get half way to one year so quickly? A little after her 5 month mark, she started attempting to sit up and now she loves to sit unassisted and look at her world from a different angle. She’s giggly and fun, and adores to watch YouTube (she smiles every time the logo comes up on our TV). She is just starting to show some interest in cartoons (I’ve been watching My Little Pony with her), and shrieks when she is excited about something (the signs of a budding fangirl, for sure). She’s also eating solids and hasn’t rejected one yet (although some icky reactions have caused us to discontinue). I can’t believe all the milestones my little one has reached and find myself getting really nostalgic for those early days. I’ve been looking at pictures of her birth, and wanting the hubs to finish editing the birth video so I can relive that day. It’s not baby fever, because I still have a baby and do not want to get pregnant again anytime soon, so I really don’t know what to call it aside from nostalgia.

Time is moving really fast – the weeks fly by, I barely have time to take the moments in, but I try as hard as I can. I find myself getting really emotional about the passing of time and want to hold on desperately before everything just slips through the cracks. Did this just get overly dramatic?

I guess the feelings I’m trying to describe here are to not take any moments for granted and to really enjoy what you are given when you are given it. I do not know what I did to deserve this amazing little person that has made us a family, but I plan on being thankful for it every day of my life.

Happy half, Luna.

In just 6 months, you have made me an infinitely better person.

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!
