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

IMG_6690 copy

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!

Oh Fandom Maternity Giveaway!

Tee; c/o Oh Fandom Maternity | Jeans; Old Navy | Necklace; Fandomly Designs | Shoes; Jane.com | Polish; Essie’s Licorice| Lipstick; NYX’s Bewitched

So remember how I was always complaining that there was no fandom maternity wear during my pregnancy? Well, now there is! I was contacted by Oh Fandom Maternity to feature one of their awesome maternity tees, but unfortunately, was not able to in time since I was told I would be induced. The tee actually arrived the day after Luna was born, so a flat lay was the next best thing I could show you all!

Cassie decided to start Oh Fandom because she realized the Harry Potter generation was starting to have kids of their own, and wanted to give them the geeky options that they so desired. The company is starting with only Potter designs, but hopes to expand to other fandoms very soon.

I personally love the quality of the tees and think they go great with my favorite pair of maternity skinny jeans from Old Navy. Pair them with some vampy lips and nails, and I think you have the perfect Fall geeky mama look! Now, lucky for you, since I am no longer pregnant (& don’t plan on being pregnant again for a long while – if even), I am giving away this awesome tee in a size small. The giveaway will run for one week, until 11/13/15, where a winner will be chosen at random. All you have to do is follow these 3 easy steps:

1. Follow @melificent on Instagram
2. Follow @oh.fandom.maternity on Instagram
3. Leave a comment on this post with your favorite Harry Potter moment

*US entries only

Firmoo Giveaway!


I’m sure you have spotted my Firmoo glasses in many an outfit post here on the blog (if not, you can see some of them above). I absolutely adore their frames because they offer both traditional and fun options at such affordable prices. Now, I don’t actually need glasses so I use them as purely a fashion accessory, so I can’t comment on them in terms of functionality, but I do love the way they look, their sturdiness and their ability to really help me seal in some geek chic looks.

So would you like to have your own pair from this amazing collection?
Yeah, I thought so.

Entering is so, so easy!

  • Leave a comment on this blog post stating which pair you would choose and why
  • Add me on Instagram & Twitter
  • Giveaway will run for 1 week (from September 23rd-September 30th) & at that point, a winner will be chosen at random

Le Clé Jewelry

Processed with VSCOcam with f2 preset

I am so happy I found out about a company like La Clé (“the key” in French). They are a wonderful little organization based in Washington DC that wants you to focus on the positive. They provide key necklaces in different colors – each one representing something different. You are encouraged to wear your key and really hone in on those sentiments and embrace their meaning. As the color on the key fades, you will have a naked key. If you post a picture of your now naked key on social media (#nakedkey), La Clé will make a donation to the charity of your choice! How absolutely amazing is that???

Although it was hard to choose, I ultimately went with the orange key, which symbolizes unstoppable and focused. As I’ve mentioned several times on my blog lately, I have felt so inspired to go for my dreams and make things happen. They may be baby steps right now, but I have big-time goals and I KNOW I will achieve them. Having this key around my neck will definitely be that daily reminder to continue pushing for what I want out of life. As for the charity I will choose when my key goes naked, La Clé’s donation will have to go to Autism Speaks.


Do you want to continue the positivity train and get your own La Clé necklace? Now is your chance to do just that for FREE! I’m hosting a giveaway to get your own colored key so that you too can embrace the positive in your life while helping someone else’s.  All you have to do is:

  • Leave a comment below with which color key you would get and why

The winner will be picked at random and announced one week from today, September 22nd!  Good luck to everyone!
