Happy Valentines Day Tag!

14 Feb

58b89-dddd

Happy Valentine’s Day!  I’m sitting here on the couch with my boyfriend and our puppy is sleeping between us while we watch the movie Face Off (great movie, so not romantic but that’s not our style). A few of the ladies over at our Facebook Page Beauty and Fashion Blog Community did this tag and thought I would do it (click here to join, we love new members!)

What is your favorite Valentine’s Day treat?
It’s an every day treat, but I love chocolate. But if I want to get specific, Godiva, especially the birthday cake and chocolate molten lava!

 

Sweethearts or chocolate covered strawberries?
I’m going with strawberries, very chilled with dark chocolate. I’m SO not demanding.

 

What was your favorite Valentine’s Day memory?
Last year, it was my boyfriend and mine first Valentine’s Day living together.  He wanted to cook me dinner that consisted of steak, rolls and some pickled veggies. He is very particular how he does things, when he cuts veggies they are pretty much very equal and size and quantity.  Well the big part was the steaks (mind you he cooks maybe 3 times a year) which had to be seared on the stove top a few minutes on each side and then put in the oven to cook the rest of the time.  He had the pan up on high heat and added olive oil and then threw the steaks on with not patting them dry and the smoke consumed the apartment, and the fire alarm when off. We were watching the sprinklers hoping they wouldn’t go off. So while we were opening doors and trying to open our windows (which will go up and not down that easily…we learned that night) I was standing on a chair fanning the alarm with a towel.  He called the fired department to let them know it was a false alarm just in case. Amazingly the steaks were amazing! We dined that night in a smokey apartment, and I will never forget it.

What movie would you rather watch on Valentine’s Day: “Pretty Woman” or “You’ve Got Mail”?
Honestly, neither.  Right now we are watching Faceoff and we’re going to see Robocop this weekend.  I’m a terrible girl who doesn’t love romantic movies unless it’s Jane Austen.

 

What celeb would you not mind having as your Valentine?
To easy, he’s been my celebrity crush for a very long while now…..Michael Fassbender.  I like to imagine him like this

And this he is going to be like this because of the thoughts I’m thinking…..

images1….Ugh I love a ginger beard

 

 

 

What would you do on your perfect Valentine’s Day date?

I’m happy with what we’re doing now, but I would place us at the beach.

 

Red or pink lips on Valentine’s Day?
Hot pink!

 

What is your ideal Valentine’s Day date outfit?
I am not big on dressing up except for New Years.  I love wearing some cute boots with skinny jeans and a really cute sweater.

 

Homemade or store-bought gifts?
Homemade dinner..but he bought me tickets to see Wicked and will endure it with me in a few months! I haven’t been the last few years it came here, so I’m super excited!

 

Would you wear your hair up or hair down for a date night?
Down, maybe  depending on the outfit.

I’m so glad I got this in before it was over! Happy Sweet day!

Get To Know This Blogger

13 Oct

tumblr_ljb58a0j9Y1qixleeo1_500

I thought it would be fun to do a little get to know this blogger.  I feel like sometimes we write about one thing so much that it only shows on part of our personalities.  I know I do a lot of beauty stuff, but my blogs name is a Little Bit of Girly Geekery.  That title does say a lot about me, but I rarely show it.  I do show a bit more of it over at my other blog The Movie Maven, there I show my passion about movies, movie news, share movie short films and also geek chic fashion. I didn’t want to combine the two since beauty and movies don’t always go hand in hand.  Blogging is fun but I don’t think we get a lot out of WordPress to get to know each other more and bond and make new acquaintances or even close friends. So with that, here is a bit more about myself!

1. I use to be an Art Historian Major but then ended up teaching Middle School Math

Yes I know it’s weird, usually you either use your right or left side of the brain.  I fell in love with Art History but the area I am in I would have to move, and couldn’t at the time, so I had to switch to something more feasible and that was math. I like figuring out problems and did a brief stint in teaching middle school algebra.  What is great is that math is used in a lot of art. A little something called the Golden Rule (In mathematics and the arts, two quantities are in the golden ratio if their ratio is the same as the ratio of their sum to their maximum. It always equal 1.618)  I continued learning on my own with art and found that many of early works use this rule.  You be amazed if you googled this.

2. I’m a book hoarder

beautiful mind 004

All my shelves are packed, we have 4 book shelves in our place and between my book obsession and my boyfriends it is over flowing.  The sad part is that I’m a book hoarder on my kindle.  I currently have over 100 books to read and I keep buying daily, but I also get a lot of them free.  I’ve been a reader since, well  I think I was reading before I entered Kindergarten. I have a terrible taste for either zombie or smut books (stuff like 50 Shades of Grey on that line).  At least I’m still reading!

3. I own tons of retro comic t-shirts

indexI’m currently wearing something like this. Half of my closet, right next to my large collection of dresses and high heels on a shoe rack, is all my comic book t-shirts.  I also have some Disney Princess shirts, Rainbow Brite, and tons of retro concert shirts.

4. My favorite music is Ska and Punk

tumblr_m1bctlMJzb1qe8s06o1_500polls_74_4515_194450_poll_xlarge

Some of my favorite artist is Reel Big Fish, Streetlight Manifesto, Suburban Legands, Dropkick Murphy, Sex Pistols, The Ramones, Operation Ivy. I might be 32, but I will always rock out to this music and go to concerts.  I just am not a pit hospitality person anymore

5. I have a softer side, I love period pieces 

jane_austen_quote

I love Jane Austen and everything about that time.  I love all the movies that are adapted from her, and Charlotte Bronte.  I think it has to do with all the romanticism.  And who doesn’t love head strong women and the clothing.  Also Mr. Darcy, who doesn’t love him?

6. When I have an obsession I have to have those things right now but I procrastinate doing/using them

index

That’s pretty self explanatory.  I’ll want to decorate and buy all the times and they will sit in a bag for a week before I do anything about it. Same with clothes, makeup….so on so on.  I think once I get obsessed and I get my hands on something the thrill and excitement is curbed.

7. I am ninja level in sarcasm 

images

If you get to know me well then you’ll learn that everything I say to you is dripping with sarcasm.  It’s just my nature, it’s how I joke. I always have a snarky comment to make, but it doesn’t mean I’m insulting. It’s really me showing you I like you, honestly<————–no sarcasm there

8. In a previous life  I must have been a buyer

index

I say this because it sounds better than ” Hi, I’m Jenn, I buy to much stuff because I can”. And yes I have justified purchases with, it was on sale.  I save money, but I have a hard time not buying something. I literally have to go online some days and load up a cart just to satisfy my need to shop.  I don’t buy, but this is what I do on occasions. I feel sad about this now about myself.  Maybe I’ll buy myself something to feel better….wait, what??

9. I like to take fancy nature pictures

By no means am I photographer, but I like to think I take some nice nature pictures.  I do this for my own pleasure.

So that’s a little about me, one more tid bit, I ended at 9 because I’m odd and didn’t want to do a 10 things about me 😛  If you want to get to know about me, feel like you like to talk more than we can on here, or just want someone new to chit chat with you can find me on Facebook here .

Girly Things That Make Me Happy: Weekend Edition

12 Sep

images

Confession time: I do not have many girl friends.  How does this happen?  I have found out as I get older the more girl friends you have the catty, back stabbing can happen. True story I’ve had this happen before.  I have some ladies at work that I enjoy going out with occasionally, one that I’m really close to. Other than that I have one really good female best friends, whom I don’t really get to see that much.

This brings me to my weekend edition of what is makes me happy.  I get to spend an evening with my friend shopping!!  We get to do this one a month. This time since fall is just right around the corner we are going boot shopping.  While we’re at the mall we will probably hit up some Ulta and DSW. If you don’t know what DSW is this should give you an idea:

dsw-header

Rows and Rows of Shhhooooooesss….

Or AKA:

part shoe heaven

SHOE HEAVEN!

Little things like that spending some grown up time with out kids are some of the happiest moments.  After the shopping we usually grab some dinner and/or coffee and have a bitch fest.  It’s great therapy.  I won’t say cheap because we all know shopping no one ever comes out the victors except for retailers.  As  I get older I cherish these moments more and more, this little moment out of our hectic lives are important to me.

Do you all have any weekend plans? Or how do you celebrate with your girl friends?
