GnG is Retiring?! Pt.1

Hello, hello.

Long time no see! We know, shame on us.

I just wanted to reach out to all of our followers to let everyone know that Geeky ‘n Girly will be retiring here within the next few months. Kelly and I have decided after much thought that we’d like to branch out on our own! So technically, we’re not really leaving the blogosphere! (Don’t be sad! Or mad!)

I have only just recently set up a new blog for myself and I would abso-freaking-lutely love it if everyone who enjoyed Geeky ‘n Girly would continue to follow me on my new blog! It’s called One-Sixth Geek, and is currently hosted via WordPress.com, but will be moving to my own domain sometime this year.

So please, clicky click and subscribe because I would hate to lose touch with some of the nicest coolest people I’ve met in the blogging world!

Much love and see everyone on One-Sixth Geek!

OOTD

Yesterday I went shopping with some friends and I wanted to show you guys my outfit. Britney and I have touched on makeup but not much of fashion which is a big part of being girly. My style is girly with an edge. I love pastels and florals mixed with things like spikes and combat boots 🙂

Now this wasn’t a part of my outfit but I was excited about it and wanted to show you guys my new spike headband from forever 21 that I got while shopping it is about $4.oo and there is also a neon yellow green one available.

And here’s a picture of me and my girl. Now onto the outfit!

My dress is from Charlotte Russe it was on sale and was about $10.00. The dress is way too short to wear on it’s own and I’m right under 5ft and it’s that short on a tall girl it would be a shirt lol. So underneath I wore my american eagle midi shorts they were $24.00 I believe and should still be available. My purse came from Betsey Johnson I bought it from her website it’s originally $88.00 but I got it on sale for 49.98 but is now $59.98 and comes in many beautiful colors. I got the black to go with everything but the mint is very pretty. The bow bracelet is from charming charlies and is $10.00. I got it while I was shopping yesterday and it matched my outfit so I wore it 🙂 The turquoise spike bracelet came from forever 21. I got it last year and it was about $2.00. Thanks for reading.

90’s Fashion Trends

For Flashback Friday, I decided to go back and take a look at the fashion trends of the 90’s. I’ve noticed that we’ve been a little lacking in the “Girly” department of this blog so I wanted to balance it out some.

Image

Some of the specific things I remember were the flat tops, bright neon colors, baggy pants, and grunge look. Here are some of the things I came across and decided to share.

Overalls

Personally, did not wear them but they were really in for some reason. Haha.

Tying Sweaters/Jackets around the Waist

Image

I think we’re all guilty of this one. I just think it was too convenient not too.

Cargo Pants

Image

I loved these pants and still do! They were just too comfortable and too awesome with all their pockets. I have it in the back of my mind to track a pair down and buy them.

Windbreakers

Good geezus, I hated these things. I remember my parents buying me the set with matching jacket and pants. They were so loud and being as shy as I was, it was drawing more attention to me than I ever wanted.

Wearing your Cap Backwards

backwardscaps_173113

This was huge. “Huge” being an understatement. No one wore their cap forward unless you were actually playing baseball or were uncool.

Wallets with Chains

chainwallets_173113

These are still relatively popular, but not as much as they were back in the 90’s. You just weren’t nearly as cool or grunge if you didn’t have a chain hanging out from your wallet.

Reef Sandals

I think everyone and their mom and her mom had a pair of these. They were just too easy and convenient, like most fashion trends in the 90’s. Comfort was key!

Slap Bracelets

slapbracelets_173113

Fashion trend or toy? Both? 🙂 I say both. Kids never had so much fun slapping themselves.

Tagged Up Backpacks

taggedupbackpack_173113

If you mom knew any better, she’d buy you a black backpack. Why? Because everyone always ended up drawing or writing something on them!

These were just of the few I decided to post about, but there just a ton more. 🙂 Did you grow up in the 90’s? Was there something that you distinctly remember that I didn’t post? Do share!

Fairy Tales and Mermaid Scales

Mer 5
Hello everyone it’s Kelly and I’m proud to introduce to you all our first Makeup Monday! Every Monday we will have a new post on beauty whether it be a tutorial or review we will try our hardest to bring you guys something new every Monday.

Today I’m doing a mermaid themed look as we are beginning to dive into summer I thought that it was an appropriate and fun theme. If you would like to see how just keep scrolling if I’ve made anything difficult to understand please feel free to comment below and I would be more than happy to answer any questions. I will also have a product list at the bottom of the post. 🙂

Mer 20
First I’m starting out with just a matte white shade over my entire lid and a pale gold shimmer in the inner corner and the the inner part of the lid stopping halfway in.

Mer18
Now you want to take a pale green and put it on the outer half of the lid meeting the gold shade in the center and using a shader brush you just want to blend them together in the center to get rid of any harsh lines.

Mer16
Take a dark shade of green and using a crease brush the technique I use is dotting it up a little and then sweeping it over pushing into the crease as I’m making this motion and blending it out softening any harsh edges.

Mer13
This is what it should look like after you’ve done that you can add a bit more into the crease if you like just remember to blend it out.

Mer 11
Now I’m taking a pale gold glitter and just patting it all over my lid extending up to my brow bone.

Mer 9
Take a white eyeliner and line your lower water line. I also took a gold liquid liner and put it below the water line near the inner corner and pushed a dark gold glitter shadow on top.

ekfjlskdjkf
Take a black liquid liner and line your upper lash line making the line thinner towards the inner corner and extending a little past.

Mer 1
To create the wing I used a gel liner and brush making the line thick then getting lighter with your hand to make a sharp point going straight across.

mer 2
Right on top of that wing make a flick with your brush and create a second slightly smaller wing.

Mer 3
Now going almost halfway on your lower water line use the gel liner.

gjkfsjgslfd
All that’s left is add the mascara you can use any color you wish but I chose this pretty blue I felt it went well with the green.

Mer 8
I curled my hair just wrapping it around the curler to give it a more beachy look. My headband I made myself if you would like to know how I can post the link to the youtube tutorial to crochet it just ask 🙂 and my dress is Chelsea and Violet from dillards. One thing I forgot to put was I put a peachy shade right on my brow bone to high light. You also want to highlight your face on your cheekbones, chin, cupids bow and nose to give yourself a dewy glow. I hope you enjoyed this any comments or suggestions for future Makeup Monday posts please just comment below.

Bang Twist Tutorial

Another favorite thing of mine is the bang twist! I often have bangs, whether blunt or side-sweep so they do get aggravating at times. This crazy simple twist gets them out of your face and in such a cute way. Not to mention, it’s an easy alternative for those who haven’t figured out how to braid their own hair.

*Ahem* Me.

So here are a few pictures of my bangs twisted, and then I’m going to post the video of the tutorial where I got the idea from. She shows you quite clearly how it’s done, and all the credit goes to BabesinHairland @ Youtube!
