Sassy Satin Pants

Hi there friends! It has been a while, and I am trying to get things done on the blog which will be up soon over at http://www.glamorousandgeeky.com. I have been wanting to get things changed for a while there, the blog name and such. It was time friends. Time. I made the new years resolution to A. get some shorts(still have not done) and B. To get the blog changed to the new name etc. And I am so excited. SO excited! And while waiting on the new blog to be finished being ported over to the new URL. I am going to write here and just transfer things myself. Because I am an Elvish Wizard like that.

Hehe.

Anyways, going back through my pictures and blog posts of old posts( we are talking since 2009) I have learned something. My mad photo skillz have gotten WAAAAYY better and my writing too. Isn’t awesome, and I saw in my old as hell horrible posts that I found my direction and grew once I found it. Went from a collage site mostly posting things like Gucci and such things I probably wouldn’t own for a long time(I own some Gucci clothes now and DVF and Tibi,by shopping really smart and thanks to sites like The Real Real)

But, yeah. My site started to grow and I started to get comments. When I first started blogging I honest to gawd had no idea what to write about, what to do, how to do it. And no one being supportive AT ALL. It was me, myself, and I. And since my blog has started to gain some momentum, I am starting to get some family behind it and such. This was more to me than just a hobby,

It was a life saver.

I started to take my blog more seriously after I had my little. I was really, really depressed. I have that tendency anyways. We wont go into that right now. But, I had bad post partum. I even blogged about it on Blogher and was told in the comments that it was in my head. ACTUALLY, no. It isn’t, it is a chemical imbalance in the brain caused by hormones and influxes.

I also read PROblogger on my Kindle and learned a lot. And then started to research how to blog better. And so here we are today.  A long cry almost from the start. I then was using my crappy phone and Ipad for blog photos. I had no SAM(my tripod) and no remote, and candy camera app. It was something I am happy I improved upon.Once I got better pictures and really asserted myself I got more sponsors. (i still use a camera phone. But let me be honest, some of the phones are so high tech they can beat out the cheapest DSLR in quality.I still want a Nikon or Cannon DSLR) I named my blog Gofashiondeals for the worst reasons and that is there was no reason. No thought to it. I just did it because I felt pressure to make a name. And I kicked my own butt for it since. Until now.

I made the decision that 2017 I would revamp the blog to be more reflective of me and my weirdness. AKA my personality. I am a GAMER, I am a HUGE Fashionista, I am a MOM, I am a WIFE, I am obsessed with MAKEUP, and I am a big BOOK WORM. I am all of those things and I do it all glamorously. And that is why the new blog is Glamorous and Geeky. Because I am. I am glamorous and geeky. And I am hoping that the site is up soon, because this sucks. MY hubby suggested I blog on this Temp thing here until then because I wont stop complaining about the time. My blog had a lot of content….and uh…yeah. HAHAHA

SO yeah…I am looking forward to this. And I hope you all are too!

Funny fab Friday.

Hi there friends! ! Happy Friday!  Sorry the blog has been sparse,I have been on a clean up the house mode. Or whatever you want to call it. And then yesterday I got an email from Pinterest about my most popular pin. Ready?

//assets.pinterest.com/js/pinit.js

Yes.This pin on my board has been repinned 1126 times. Yeah. This pin of Thranduil from the movie The Hobbit: Battle of the Five Armies has been my number one pin for weeks. Why?
Well this pin, which I pinned from someone else,who got it from tumblr, I put something funny on the caption. “Thranduil. Can not wait for the movie!! And a big thing of popcorn all Paula Deaned up with butter.”
The  comment section erupted with some hilarious insight about “Paula Deaning ” him with butter.
To which when I read that I laughed so hard I choked on air. Yes that is a thing.

My Kingdom of Geek is on of my most popular  boards. The fandoms are strong. So be sure to check it out and geek out with me!

Which speaking of geeking out, um did you know they made a pair of “nerd pants” of Benedict Cumberbatch? Yes, this is a thing. Which leaves me wondering why?

Do we really need pants with his face on them? I am all about nerding it up but, there can be a limit. (Says the girl who has a Loki shirt, the ONE RING pants, and a desire to own every sword from the LOTR movies.) Poor guy.

But these Cumberbitch leggings which are being sold for $80 on Poprageous might be a bit too much.  And I couldn’t stop laughing about this when I read the headline yesterday. I just had to share this.

 

You can get the matching shirt too.  How do you feel about these? Excuse me while I fall over laughing.

Skyrim is my relaxing time

Some people meditate, some exercise, do yoga, or cuddle up with a good book and read. I can do most of those things mentioned. But, what has  really relaxed me lately is Skyrim.

Lydia stop eating and clean!
Lydia stop eating and clean!

This video game with it’s open world, never ending quests,and tons of equipment options,and music score that has it’s own playlist on my Pandora. This game  has become my true mode of relaxation. I run around Skyrim putting buckets on people, slaying dragons, shooting people in the knee, and listening to the music as I go. As well as get mad at Lydia constantly. What bliss!And after a few dragon slayings you have one peaceful evening. Unless you forget to save, die and loose 5 hours of gameplay. We have all been there.

Video games for me,much like a good book, or nice long walk are a nice way to escape. They recharge my mind,help me think, and satisfy my inner nerd.  My way of relaxation may not be the best way for some, but for me it works. After a day of temper tantrums,diapers, never ending chores, and whatever else; it is nice to go to. Some people have Netflix and Supernatural. Me? I have Xbox and Skyrim.

"Stats good on Kajhit?" "I dunno, she goes meow. Like a kitty kitty kitty cat" #facepalm  I chose the cat, I love cats.

Project glass, google’s leap into the future

Project glass

Project glass, Google’s next great thing. Wish the name was better, sounds like a science fair project. However,these little specs are packed full of technological goodies. Google believes tech should work for you, not against you. These glasses can allow you to do all the things on your phone without being face in phone. Google maps, for example, can show you where to go point A to point B as you’re walking. Pretty incredible, right? Yes!  Check out the video below.

That’s nuts am I right? Now google did unveil it’s first video at a conference. This video was taken by someone wearing project glass.
How do you take an image ? Tap the temple and there you go. This will take things to a whole new level on the tech side of things, facebook uploads, and pinterest. You will be able to catch your friends at their goofyest without fumbling for your phone.
This device will have quite an impact. Fashionable Diane Von Furstenberg is showing how to be fashion forward in them. How to wear and with what.
Driving?  There are voice command texts, but how will these fair while driving?
Will Apple try to jump on this kind of idea? Releasing their version of the spec, iGlass,lol. Only time will tell and at around $1500 a pop, just a few will get the chance to try it. Unless you absolutely got to have it.

Chic tech cases and wonderful gifts!

image

Oh what fun it is to shop for that tech savvy lady! Is what my husband must be saying now. Sometimes it is hard to shop for someone who has a lot of different things, tech or not. But, if that lady has an iPad or kindle why not accessorize it for her? She will appreciate it, especially considering how expensive those tech items are. 799.00 for an iPad with all the bells and whistles, for example. You not only want her to keep it safe but you don’t want to hear her talk about how ugly things are. You know me, I am always searching for some classy and chic cases, for either my smart phone or my Asus transformer. Well, ladies and gents, Ce supply store has a gorgeous selection of cases. This company cares about quality and it shows in every piece. The leather cases are beautifully crafted and well thought out. They thought about where cords are placed and that my friends is something I appreciate greatly. Nothing worse than the case not having a hole for the cord it it isn’t a zip up. I have had the privilege of playing around with their iPad cases and I am impressed by them!

The Toblino cases offer a great range of functionality as well as style. These great cases have a unique design that utilizes the auto sleep and wake up by simply opening the case or closing it. These cases have the ability to let you go hands free with the built in stand. Nice right? These cases run $34.95 and are worth it.

You can get her the bundle too, Ce Supply Store has the Isabella Toblino bundle for 49.95.
image

This set gives you the functional and stylish Toblino as well as the extra protection of Isabella . Isabella is a zip up canvas carrying case with leather strap. The neat thing about this case from Ce Supply Store is the fuzzy fleece lining. It just makes you want to put your hands in it. Now, the Isabella case is a universal case and my Asus did fit. Although not as comfortable as I would like it did fit. Great combo gift.
image

Ok, pink lovers this case is for you. The Valencia for iPad 2 is perfect for you, why? Well, let me tell you.
This pink case has the similar styling as the Toblino, but it is thinner.
image

More purse friendly, in my opinion. The other unique detail about this case is the pink ribbon on the corner. Most of us know this is for breast cancer awareness and this leather case shows it with fashionable flare.
image

With the purchase of this case 2 dollars gets donated to City of Hope from now until Dec 31st,2013. What a great gift at $24.95 and a great cause to support.

If you don’t think she will like the leather case or you are buying for a teen, the Trend case is a good option. This adorable case has a top closure and has even a spot for the plug. The pretty plad design is fun and youthful! This case is also made of really soft material! It keeps your iPad safe while being ultra stylish! This case by Ce Supply Store is a great gift.

One thing that I keep hearing about is vegan items. Vegan leathers, vegan shoes, vegan clothes, and vegan house wares. Ce Supply Store offers a vegan case for the kindle and iPad mini.
image

It has a sticky spot to stick your mini tab to and it wont leave a residue. The case just like many of the other cases has the ability to stand up and has a pocket to hold notes and cards.
image

This is perfect for the vegan lover in the family and is beautifully made.

The last case i want to talk about makes a great stocking stuffer and is just all around cool. The plastic case for iPhone 4s comes with 3 silicon inserts that allow you to change out based on whatever you are feeling.
image

So, if you feel it is a blue day put the blue one in. It is a cute bubble design and is not too bulky. Feels good to hold and easy to put on the phone and take off. It does all of this while still protecting your phone. Nimbus is a great case for any iPhone user! For $24.95 go for it!!!

Ce Supply Store is offering free shipping for orders made by Dec 16th, for standard you want to order by Dec 18t, and finally 2nd day shipping order by Dec 20th. Do this and you should get them by Christmas!
