Fan Girl Friday!

Fan Girl Friday Stranger Things Banner

 

Happy Friday, y’all! If you’re like me, you’re counting down the days until the season two premiere of Stranger Things on Netflix! To hold us over until October 31st, I’ve found the best nerdy nifties this side of the Upside Down!

Obsessed with waffles like Eleven? Want your home to smell like the golden goodness everyday? Look no further, I’ve got what you need!

El Waffle Candle

This soy candle will fill your home with the sweet scent of syrup, butter, and waffle batter!

Happy Friday, peeps! I realized this week I haven’t done a Fan Girl Friday in TWO WEEKS! I know; bad, blogger! But I’ve found some geeky goodies and nerdy news to help you kick off your V-Day weekend!

 

A few weeks ago, I was out running errands and saw the COOLEST window cling! So when I got home, I immediately searched for it online and found it on Etsy!

Fan Girl Friday Hogwarts Honor Student

Seriously, how cute is this?! I need this for the Mom-mobile. I mean, my kid’s name is Hermione so its perfect, right?

 

And speaking of the magical world of HP, JoAnn’s Fabrics has recently acquired some new Potter prints!

Fan Girl Friday Harry Potter Fabric

AHH! Excuse me while I go spend an unholy amount of Sickles on this fabric…

 

You guys know I’m a HUGE fan of Friends. I quote it at least once a day and I’ve watched the entire series all the way through probably a dozen times. So when I saw this, I got all floopy!

Fan Girl Friday Friends Candle

There’s a Kickstarter campaign to help a candle maker start his business including a line of Friends inspired aromatherapy candles! The “Ross” is called “Pivot! Pivot! Pivot!” (totally fitting). I really hope the “Monica” is called “Monana”.

 

You know when you travel and you consider your favorite destination your second home? That’s how I feel about London. And I think I need to go back for a fourth time, because the one and only Sir Ian McKellen is going to be riding around a double decker!

Fan Girl Friday Sir Ian McKellen hosting bus tours of London

Yep, in celebration of the British Film Institute’s Shakespeare on Film program (which was started by McKellen) Gandalf himself will be serving as a tour guide, showing tourists filming locations from his film Richard III. According to Radio Times, the white wizard said:

“I always thought it might be fun to take a bus tour around the sites of Richard III. You would watch snippets of the film and then arrive at the actual location,” [McKellen] said. “I want to be the tour leader.”

Let’s pack our bags, people!

 

Happy fangirling!

Fan Girl Friday

Happy Friday, peeps! And what an awesome Friday it is. Not only does this kick off an incredible 3-day weekend BUT Sunday is Geek Pride Day! That’s right people, much like Star Wars Day a few weeks ago, GPD is a day to let your fandom flag fly!

 

Need some ways to celebrate? Have no fear, The Huffman Post is here!

 

You can create the geeky ambiance for you and your Player Two with these fantastically fandom fragranced candles from Etsy shop Frostbeard!

"Rolling hills, sunflowers, and hairy feet."

“Rolling hills, sunflowers, and hairy feet.”

They have all kinds: The Shire, Dumbledore’s Office, and even Wibbly Wobbly Timey Wimey!

 

It’s that time of year again, the time when our mailboxes are full of wedding invitations and, oh yes, graduation announcements. Need something for the geeky grad in your life? Think Geek has just the thing!

 

"I want your brrraaaiiiinnnsss! But only if you have a GPA of 3.5 or higher!"

Did you know that Geek Pride Day was originally supposed to pay homage to the release of Star Wars but shares the date with two other fandom holidays—Towel Day (for Hitchhiker fans) and The Glorious 25th of May (for Discworld fans)? Because there was so much geekdom in one day, it morphed into GPD!And to celebrate the origins, JJ Abrams created a contest that could possibly get YOU on the set of the new Star Wars flick while also helping out UNICEF! Seriously!

You’d be doing good and increasing your chances of meeting Han Solo! If chosen, you would shoot a scene for the movie, be Abrams’ VIP guest on the set in London, and even bring a pal with you! Click the link for more!

Fan Girl Friday

Its Friday, Friday, gonna get my geek on on Friday! 

Welp, Valentine’s Day is over and done with (thank goodness) so now we can all bask in the glow of the now dying roses and drown our troubles with a heart-shaped box of Russell Stover’s.

Thankfully, I’m here to turn that frown upside down with some awesomely nerdtastic finds!

 

If you’re desperate to keep the romance alive and burnin’ with your geek, I’ve got just the thing (or things) for you! Check out this aromatic candles from Think Geek!

You smell like a Hobbit, my Precious.

You smell like a Hobbit, my Precious.

The scents come in: Middle Earth, Retro Arcade, Space, and Teen Spirit.  (I’m a little hesitant to recommend the arcade one though. I think it would smell like feet, cotton candy, and teenage angst.)

 

Check out this awesome bed from Tech 4 Globe!

My bed's a little lumpy.

My bed’s a little lumpy.

Here’s the description from the website: This unique bed is made from 120 medium sized sofa balls covered in elastic fabric. The crazy thing about this bed is that you can change its form. It doesn’t have to be horizontal bed all the time. You can pull up the sofa balls to make a small seating arrangement or make new shapes for your relaxation needs. Plus they look kinda cute. (They do, don’t they?)

 

And speaking of beds, look at this bedding from a European company that I can’t pronounce the name of:

"One small step for Mom, one giant nap for kid kind."

“One small step for Mom, one giant nap for kid kind.”

I really don’t think I’d ever get out of bed if I had this bedspread.

 

One of the things I love about the internet is the ability to find people who 1. are obsessed with the same fandoms as me and 2. can draw/paint/design better than me. Case in point: Minion Factory. They’ve “Pixared” the folks from Doctor Who!

Hello, Disney.

“Hello, Disney.”
