Fan Girl Friday!

Star Wars FGF Banner

 

Happy Friday, padawans! Have you seen the The Last Jedi trailer that dropped this week?! NO?!  Don’t worry, I got chu.

 

 

*Cue the feels/goosebumps like crazy*

To celebrate the release of this new trailer (and the fact that Last Jedi tickets are already on sale–totes got mine!) every nerdy nifty on today’s FGF is Star Wars-related! Woot, woot!

I know its getting chilly out, but seriously, I think I need this workout tank from Etsy shop Everyday Unicorns:

Yasssss, queen! I mean, Yasssss, general! 

 

I’m not trying to get all political up in here, but why do I feel like Kylo would totally be sporting this hilarious tee at a Storm Trooper hiring day rally?

Anyone else notice the ADORABLE little feathered/furry creature next to Chewie in the trailer? Apparently, that little thing is a Porg (or maybe Porg is its name, I’m not entirely sure…) and it is cute AF! I have a feeling that little guy is going to be to Star Wars 8 what the niffler was to Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them! Don’t believe me? Check out this “Awwww!”-inducing Porg Funko Bobble Head!

While you’re buying popcorn at the theater waiting for TLJ to start, show your fandom side with this awesome Tauntaun coin purse!

I’m not 100% sure, but I’m fairly certain this one does NOT have a foul odor (inside or out)!

 

Happy fangirling!

Happy Friday, geeklings! We’ve survived another week and I think we deserve to celebrate with some fandom finds I’ve stumbled across this week! 

Fall is officially here so it’s time to dust off those warm jammies because the nights are about to get chilly! But you can stay nice and toasty in this Toothless Kigurumi!

Sadly, Hiccup is not included. 

 

Fall evenings should be spent snuggled up, watching TV, and eating comfort food. And what better way to Netflix and chili than with this Snorlax bean bag chair:

One of my only complaints about fall is how early it gets dark out. But, with these LED earrings from Perpetual Kid, you have a light no matter where you go!

These would be great for runners! Or, ya know, as a book light while reading in bed because running is the worst. 

 

Cooler temps means I can finally wear actual shoes without fear of them swelling up from the heat of an Oklahoma summer’s day. It also means I can don my super fun socks! I may need to add these to my collection:

Ah, Friday. My second favorite “f” word. (What? I was thinking “fries”. What were YOU thinking?!) Enough chit chat, let’s dive right in to the nerdy nifties I’ve found this week!

I really thought Huff the Hubs and I had a pretty nerdy wedding. I mean, our cake toppers were Lego, we had a frickin’ TARDIS, and I walked down the aisle to Storybook Love from The Princess Bride. But this couple? Man, they put us to shame!

Cassie and Lewis Byrom of Manchester, UK totally hit the Snitch out of the pitch with their a-DORK-able Harry Potter-themed nuptials! Just check out these pics!

The bride and groom featured on their very own Wanted posters!

 

harry-potter-themed-wedding-cassie-lewis-byrom-20

The groom’s boutonniere? Yeah, those are pages from Harry Potter!

harry-potter-themed-wedding-cassie-lewis-byrom-26

The cake not only had house crests, but was adorned with a tribute to The Three Brothers and topped with Voldemort and Bellatrix Lego minifigs!

harry-potter-themed-wedding-cassie-lewis-byrom-37

Every guest (130 of them!) were each given a handmade wand! I wish I would’ve been invited to this! For more pics, click here!

 

Keeping with the HP theme, I’ve found an awesome way to not only help you de-stress, but also find out once and for all which Hogwarts house you belong in! Etsy shop ScentD has these amazing surprise bath bombs that reveal your house colors when dropped in the tub!

il_570xN.947117412_6ou5

Each bath bomb also includes a charm–either a lion for Griffyndor, a badger for Hufflepuff, a serpent for Slytherin, or bird for Ravenclaw! You can choose which house you want OR select “random” and be sorted! (They also have a charcoal bath bomb called “Sirius”!)

 

For the Potterhead that needs a magical manicure, NOVAPolish has what you need!

il_570xN.1013071249_6mzk

Seriously, how cute is that polish?! NOVA also has Totoro, Batman, and other themed polishes!

 

Let people know you mean business with this striking silver Lord Voldemort wand necklace from Soft Kitty Clothing:

Just, ya know, don’t go all “Avada Kedavra” on anyone, mmmkay?

Happy Friday, fangirls (and boys)! Since school is starting soon–and the weather will be changing with it–I thought I’d focus on fandoms finds for those fashinista fangirls out there! Luckily, ThinkGeek has teamed up with Her Universe and created a new line of Star Wars-inspired clothes for the chic, girlie geek! And–bonus!–they come in sizes XS-2X!

Just check out these A-DORK-ABLE pieces!

I LURVE this Star Wars emblem flowy tank!

Happy Friday, peeps! We are officially in Christmas countdown mode now that we are in December! Are you excited?! Need help getting into the Christmas spirit? Then I’ve got some nerdy nifties sure to put some jungle in your bells!

Last night, the fam and I watched Charlie Brown Christmas on TV–one of my favorite holiday specials! YouTuber Only Leigh decided to put her own geeky spin on the Christmas classic by making the mash-up, “Merry Christmas, Will Byers!” (a blend of Peanuts and Stranger Things!) Check it out:

 

 

I don’t know about you, but my Black Friday was spent binge-watching Gilmore Girls: A Year in the Life. And while I wanted to slap Rory (and Lorelai) a few times, I still really enjoyed the visit back to Stars Hollow! So much so that I think I need to grab some GG swag, like this adorable tee from I ❤ Apparel!

sportgrey_49bead61-b77c-482f-b0e6-6128518df003_1024x1024

This tee comes in a variety of colors (and you can also get this print on hoodies and mugs)! Plus they have other tees from Stars Hollow hot spots like Al’s Pancake World and, of course, Luke’s Diner!

 

For some folks, the holidays aren’t all stockings and rainbows. For some that aren’t able to make it home, the holidays can be a little sad. But have no fear! HomesickCandles.com can make you feel like you’re back with your family in your home state!

oklahomaboxwithcandle_grande

After a group of friends relocated out of state, they wanted to still feel close to their roots and Homesick Candles was born! Each candle is comprised of scents native to or famous in that state. The description for my home state (Oklahoma) reads: “These scents will take you back to the good ol’ days at home in the Sooner State with hints of pecan, barbecue, cinnamon, and vanilla.” Mmm…smells like home!

 

Anyone else seeing their computer covered in boring, yellow Post-Its? It can make your desk seem very bleak indeed. Why not spruce up the joint with these:

rainbow__06445-1480468645-1280-1280

Rainbow scratch art notes will surely make those reminders like, “Take out the trash!” and “Pick up dry cleaning!” feel like less of a nuisance and more exciting when written on these! You can get 125 notes for $8.99 from Perpetual Kid!

Happy Friday, geeklings! I’ve got some fandom finds that’s sure to tickle your fancy! Let’s dive right in to the geeky gear! 

Y’all, I’m SO excited that Outlander is starting to really explode–mostly because there’s finally Sassenach swag! 

10715396_hi

Seriously, how adorable is Hot Topic’s new Outlander line?! It’s fit for a lady that likes her men red-haired and kilted! Ye kin? 

I’m not a big makeup girl. I mean, I wear the basics but only because I don’t want to scare the villagers when I attempt to leave the house with my two wildlings in tow. But I may need to practice so I can have a legit reason to buy these:

harry-potter-wand-brushes

Oh yes, those are Harry Potter makeup brushes! Each brush is designed to look like a character’s wand (lets just hope they don’t include the Elder Wand!). This will go great with the Butterbeer lip gloss from Shiro Cosmetics! 

Y’all know I love Disney, but this next couple LURVES Disney! Just check out their magical wedding! 

disney-themed-wedding

disney-themed-wedding-4

The groom and bride, Ty and Ashley, got engaged just steps away from Cinderella’s castle and wanted their wedding to be a reflection of their Disney-mania. Ashley wore a gown from Alfred Angelo’s Disney line and their cake toppers were replicas of Carl and Ellie’s chairs from Up! To see more pics, click here! 

I’m fully convinced that no matter who wins the presidential election next month, we are on the verge of a zombie apocalypse. And, thanks to Think Geek, I’ll be prepared! 

jmoi_mini_bugout_box

This mini bug-out box is stocked with 43 products you’ll need when the undead are knocking down your door: panic whistle, first aid kit, cutting blades, fishing gear and much more! 

Happy fangirling! 

Fan Girl Friday!

Fan Girl Friday Background

 

Its official: we’re halfway through January. And, already so much has happened! I couldn’t bring myself to write a blog post yesterday because I was so torn up about the passing of Alan Rickman. Though I bleed the red and gold of Gryffindor House, I think we can all say that, right now, we’re all Slytherins.

The passing of such a great actor and the man we’ve all come to love as he portrayed one of the most misunderstood characters in the HP universe, has really left a hole in so many people’s hearts.

Yesterday, at Harry Potter World in Florida, fans showed their grief in beautiful ways. A large group banded in front of the Hogwarts ride, wands held high.

And inside, a single lily was placed outside of Snape’s potion’s classroom:

Lily left at Snape's Classroom Door

Rest in peace, Alan. We will always remember you.

 

Now, I’d like to switch gears and show you some delightfully dorky deals I’ve found to brighten your mood!

Over at The Geeky Hostess, there’s not only recipes but there’s also one-of-a-kind finds sure to bring a smile to your face! Like this ah-may-zing three-pack of fandom teas!

Geeky-Hostess-Tea-Combo HP Firefly Doctor Who

The 3-pack includes Mechanic’s Blend (Firefly), Doctor’s Blend (Doctor Who), and Lion’s Blend (Gryffindor/Harry Potter)! I’m a part of all three fandoms so this is PERF for me! (Hint, hint, Huff the Hubs!)

 

Huff the Tot hasn’t worn bibs in a loooooong time (though, she–and I–probably should!). But soon, we’ll be adding to our brood and we’ll need to dig those things out of storage. But, I think I may buy a few of these, just to keep those meal time messes humorous:

Travelling Sideshow Bibs

These silly sideshow bibs not only protect the kiddo from messes, but also help you have pictures that will no doubt embarrass them in the future! Its a win-win! Ha!

 

Even though I work from home, I know how it can be working in an office. Some days, you just do NOT want to make small talk with people. And, there’s really no way to let people know this without coming off as a jerk. So let your mug do the talking for you!

Mixed Messages Mug

This mug from Fred Flare comes with re-positionable letters so you can let your coworkers know when you’ve finally had enough coffee to make it through 10 minutes of chit-chat!
