Ok, so I am posting this to apologize and apologize again for my inactivity and the overall inactivity of our blog. Life has a tendency to grab hold of you and not allow for the other things that you do in you spare time. Blogging was one of those things.
On a more revealing note, Kelly and I sort of jumped into the deep end when we first created the blog and we drowned in our own exuberance. We put too much on our shoulders, and even with two of us we couldn’t meet the goals we set for ourselves. That pretty much put the flame out for us. It turned blogging into a chore and we never really intended it to be that way.
But.. We’re back!
We’re excited to get back into the blogging groove, and we’ve set reasonable expectations for ourselves and each other so look forward to seeing a steady flow of posts from now on.
With that being said,
Kelly and I would like to formally welcome Whitney to Geeky ‘n Girly. We recently invited her to write with us, and we feel like she has her own unique angle on the world of being feminine and geeky. So look forward to an introductory post from her in the near future as well as her own section on our About page.
I know I know it’s been forever since there’s been a new post I’ve been recovering from my tonsil/adenoidectomy which has been the roughest surgery of my life but I will do a whole post on that once I’m completely better. I wanted to do this post because once I started to make money of my own and could buy the things I wanted I found it difficult to find geeky merch so I’m just going to list the places I frequent for all that nerdy goodness. It’s not a long or in depth post just a short list.
Thinkgeek is a great site for gifts when it comes to Christmas or birthdays it is my go to. It has everything from cook books, caffeine products for those late night gamers, tee’s and things for your office or house. Whether you’re a zombie or star wars lover it has everything to suit your taste.
2. Hot Topic
I don’t know about you but Hot Topic really irks me for some reason. It’s not what it was when I was younger and I find it odd that there are one direction items for sale there. Not sure why but it bothers me anyway this is where I get most of my anime shirts. You just have to be on the look out for the good ones I’ve seen many meh shirts but I have gotten some pretty awesome Naruto shirts that aren’t of the chibi variety not that there is anything wrong with chibi but sometimes I want badass battle scene shirts. Also they have a good variety of Harry Potter, pokemon and some decent gaming shirts. This isn’t geeky but it’s also where I get most of my band shirts for the older original style like rhcp and things like that.
I have gotten a shirt from etsy but I haven’t bought personally anything geeky from this site but while I’m bored I do like to “window shop” and you can find very unique items and most are handmade. Support small business!
I have bought so many shirts from teefury that I’ve lost count. For the price you can’t beat it and you won’t usually find another person with the same shirt or I haven’t yet anyway. I’ve gotten many Harry Potter, Zelda, Final Fantasy, pokemon and even the goonies shirts. Sometimes it does take awhile to get your shirt but I mean you’ve lived your whole life without is thus far and it’s incredibly cheap for the quality I don’t mind waiting.
These are all I can think of for now but if I think of any more I will add to this post and I hope you found it helpful. 🙂
I found this pretty amusing and thought I would share. Some of the things she says or does are things I’ve done, haha.
Tell me what geeky things you say! Boys are welcome to comment too.
When I saw this picture the title read, “Busty Girl Problem,” but in all reality I know that all ladies with medium+ busts have had this problem! I know I have!
I’m guilty of buying a few shirts that wont button up top. My tip? Leave the damn thing unbuttoned and put a tank top underneath it. Problem Solved!
Like if you’ve had the same troubles and feel free to share past experiences!
