My Geeky Valentine

I know a lot of you tout Valentine’s Day as a commercialized and ridiculous holiday. When I was single, I hated it. When I was in relationships, I hated it. It’s only now, as an old lady fart that I have grown to appreciate this holiday about love. Because it’s all around us, people. It doesn’t have to be romantic love – just a day to appreciate all the love surrounding you. Because trust me, every single one of us is circled by amazing people and animals that love us as much as we do them. So take the time out to step back and give thanks to the universe for that because it’s pretty special.

And aside from that, you get to wear pink! And hearts! The 14th really could be worse, amirite? Here’s my round up of pretty amazing geek-centric Valentine’s goodies;

Melificent’s Ultimate Geeky Holiday Gift Guide

The holidays! They are upon us, geek girls. There is no denying it any longer. They are here, and you must brace yourselves. Braving the mall may be something on your list of December to-do’s, but I honestly rather sit at home with no pants and a bottle of wine and knock out my list with efficiency (and a nice buzz). If there are any geek girls on your list (of course there are), I’ve compiled a really fun guide of some of my favorite finds for a variety of different ladies.  Happy gifting!

Ugly Christmas Sweater Round Up

Although I absolutely adore the ugly Christmas sweater trend, I have to admit that I’ve never actually been to or hosted an ugly Christmas sweater party. The closest I came was going to a small get together with friends where we had to wear one, and of course, I made mine Marvel. ;)

Since the rise in popularity of this trend, the geeks have taken over and there are a slew of nerdy sweaters you can choose from for the upcoming holidays. I know I definitely want to wear one Christmas day, even though it will surely be just as steamy and humid as any other unbearable Miami day, but all these options are making it so hard to choose!

Valentines Wish List

I don’t need much more reason to dress girly, so Valentine’s Day just puts me in overdrive. Heart patterns and sweet shades all around cause me to lose a little control. As for the holiday itself? I could do without. I’ve never really been a fan whether I was single or crazy in love. But that doesn’t mean I can’t dress the part! Plus, I heard the hubs is taking me to Michy’s this year. I can handle that. ;)

Here are some of my favorite v-day inspirations;

1. Anika Burke Heart Back Dress; 2. Anika Burke Heart Front Dress; 3. Heart Ring; 4. Ban.do mini hearts; 5. Mini glitter notebook

 

1. Smitten Sweater; 2. Glitter heart clutch; 3. je t’aime necklace; 4. Scalloped wedges; 5. Heart Sleeved Sweater; 6. Cross My Heart bobbi pin
