The Geeky Girl Tag

I love surveys, memes, challenges – anything that asks me to answer things that I haven’t thought up myself. I’ll often repost those ‘ask me…’ graphics on twitter and instagram to see what people come up with. So when I saw this geeky girl tag answered by Kitten at The Howling Wolfheart I had to jump in! The tag is originally by Cassie at ZombieGoddess Beauty and she has also done a Gamer Tag too! 1. What is your must-have tech gadget? Once upon a time I would have said it was my PC, however, after a year of having my tablet it wins thisRead More →

5 Fandom Friday - Fandoms I'm thankful for

Buffy the Vampire Slayer Buffy is easily the fandom I am most thankful for because it saved my life. Many times over. That isn’t me being dramatic. My teenage years were difficult, I was bullied a lot, and started suffering from depression without even realising. It was a dark time, and the many lessons of Buffy not only got me through it but helped me be stronger. Later during an emotionally abusive relationship I picked up the self help book What would Buffy do? and despite the cheesy name it is a very good read. This is still my go to show when I feelRead More →

5 Fandom Friday - Characters I want to dress up as for Halloween

Star Wars – Mara Jade My favourite all time character, so of course she has to be first on this list! Her outfit is very simple to make and I’ve dyed my hair the correct colour in the past so that’s also easy!   Star Wars – Leia Sadly, Mara is no longer actual Star wars canon (yet) so my actual canon choice which most people would recognise is Leia. Particularly this outfit as I have wanted to dress up in this iconic outfit since I was a teenager!   Disney – Belle Despite loving Disney, I don’t feel a big attachment to many ofRead More →

5 Fandom Friday - Geeky tattoos

When I first started this prompt I thought I’d have to change to prompt slightly, and then I began to realise that there were no examples of tattoos out there that summed up what I would ever get. So I ended up doing the prompt properly 😀 As a Libra I love art, but I’m also very picky. On top of that I’m very ticklish and one of my conditions means my skin does odd things. So these are more of a theoretical list of geeky tattoos that I would get.   Phedre’s Marque Kushiel Legacy by Jacqueline Carey [Image credited to NACrnko] If you’veRead More →

Sharing Saturday: my favourite fantasy books

It was World Book Day on Thursday so it seems fitting for this weeks Sharing Saturday to be about books! A while ago Lianne asked for suggestions for fantasy novels and that got me thinking about my favourite ones. So here you go!   Song of the Lioness Quartet – Tamora Pierce This is the first book set in the land of Tortall and is followed by two other quartets, a duology, a prequel trilogy and a short stories anthology. I absolutely love these books even though they are written for a younger audience and I’ve lost count of the times I’ve re-read them. TheRead More →
