Thanks for Making this Year Unforgettable

We don’t have an official post for today, but wanted to use the opportunity to thank all of you for making this year a great one. When we stared this endeavor, we weren’t quite sure how it would be received, or if there was a place for this kind of blog. But we were confident that someone out there would like what they saw, and are glad to say that there are many of you who do!

And next year is already looking to be full of wonderful geek style. There’s sure to be more jewelry and other subtly geek accessories from The Novo Geek, wonderfully chic and fun new clothing items from Her Universe, and Black Milk has just announced an official license with the Tolkien estate to release new Middle-Earth themed pieces in the new year.


So from the bottom of our hearts, thank you for being a part of our small corner of the web, and we can’t wait to share even more with you next year!

DIY Friday: Decoupaged Decorative Plate


While shoes, wallets, jewelry, etc. are the most common types of items to decoupage, you can pretty much decoupage anything you set your mind to. For this DIY I set my sights on decoupaging a home decor item, a decorative plate charger.

You’ve probably seen them on dinner tables before, but might not have known what they were called. They’re large, purely decorative, plates used to dress up a table for special events, parties, holidays, etc. And they are a perfect way to geek up the dinner table in a subtle but fun way.

Add a Little Geeky Glitz or Shine to any Outfit

One of my favorite way to make my outfits a little more geek chic is including a great piece of jewelry. It could be unstated or the focus of the outfit. While many of these may not be available in time for the holidays, you might be able to snag a piece or two in time to add to your New Years outfit. Or, you could just wear them everyday too!

Hot Topic’s merchandise changes fairly frequently, but they have some fun pieces right now at very reasonable prices.
