Pirates + Princesses

“Seaward ho! Hang the treasure! It’s the glory of the sea that has turned my head.” (Robert Louis Stevenson, Treasure Island) I’m sorry for being M.I.A. for the past week (months?), but I’ve been preparing myself for my sister-in-law’s epic Pirates and Princesses costume themed wedding, which took place this past Friday on National Talk Like a Pirate Day ....more

Hello Fall, My Old Friend

“But then fall comes, kicking summer out on its treacherous ass as it always does one day sometime after the midpoint of September, it stays awhile like an old friend that you have missed. It settles in the way an old friend will settle into your favorite chair and take out his pipe and light it and then fill the afternoon with stories of places he has been and things he has done since last he saw you.” (Stephen King) Over the weekend, North Texas was treated to a sneak preview of fall. The weather on Saturday was wonderfully chilly, sending me into daydreams of boots, leather, and flannel ....more

What to Pack: Fall Weekend Getaway Edition

The drawback of being a fashion blogger in Dallas is that when fall comes around, it seems unthinkable to wear seasonal items in the 90-100 degree heat.

Can’t Talk, Playing Destiny

While the rest of the country’s fashion bloggers were in NYC for Mercedes Benz Fashion Week, I was back in Dallas anxiously awaiting the release of Destiny, Activision and Bungie’s next generation first person shooter with MMORPG elements. My sweet husband drove me to GameStop last night at 10:30pm to pick-up my pre-ordered copy of the game. We waited patiently amidst a sea of anxious gamers (who may or may not have bathed in anticipation for the midnight release) ....more

Black, White, and Read All Over

My husband has been giving me a hard time for not having enough “geek” on the blog as of late. Haven’t had much time to play video games these days– basically waiting for the Destiny release next week and then Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel. My time has been dedicated to building the Dallas Blogger Collective and attending various fashion events ....more

10 Dorm Room Essentials

Today marked the first day back to school for Texas students. It’s been quite a while since I’ve had a “first day of school” — in fact, my 10 year high school reunion is coming up this month. Nevertheless, when Kleenex + Walmart gave me the opportunity to create a post with my top 10 dorm room essentials, I couldn’t help but enjoy the nostalgia of reliving my college days ....more

Introducing: Dallas Blogger Collective

Each friend represents a world in us, a world possibly not born until they arrive, and it is only by this meeting that a new world is born. (Anaïs Nin) Dear Geek Glam readers: I’m sorry that I’ve been slacking off on blog posts as of late. It’s been one crazy/beautiful month, and I haven’t had the chance to sit down and really reflect on it all ....more
