Level Up by Loot Crate February Review & Giveaway!

{GIVEAWAY NOW CLOSED} winners have been contacted. thanks to all who entered!

Holy sh!t biscuits, y’all! Level Up totally killed it with the loot that came in their February fashion subscriptions, which is funny considering that the theme of the month was “Dead.” Haha! #PunsForDays

But seriously, there was so much cool stuff! I was particularly stoked for the women’s Wearable subscription item because I knew Her Universe was designing something with Deadpool and tacos. And you guuuys, the top they came out with is the cutest thing EVER!!!!

Here’s a breakdown of what every subscription came with:

♥ Female Fashion Accessories: Blood Splatter nail wraps by Espionage Cosmetics and a The Walking Dead cherokee rose necklace by Bioworld.

♥ T-Shirt: black and white Silence of the Lambs tee.

♥ Socks: Deadpool and glow-in-the-dark Death Eaters (Harry Potter) socks.

FYI: There are 2 combo subscriptions you can subscribe to – one is the wearable item + socks, and the other is the fashion accessories + t-shirt

To subscribe to one of the many Level Up subscriptions, please go here and use code “LEFANCYGEEK” to save 10%! March’s theme is “Versus” and includes items from Captain America: Civil War and Batman vs. Superman!

Keep on reading to get to the giveaway portion!

I was really excited about the Esiponage Cosmetics nails wraps that came with the Female Fashion Accessories sub. It has a blood splatter design that reminded me of Dexter. And they glow in the mother effin’ dark! That was a total surprise to me as my nails glowed while I watched Zootopia at the theater on Monday. It does say they’re glow-in-the-dark on the package, but I was too excited to put them on my nails to bother reading anything else on it. I put the nail wraps on about a week and a half ago and they’re still on! If you ever get any nail wraps from Espionage, I highly recommend putting a top coat over to help make it last longer.

Even though I’ve never seen Silence of the Lambs or watched Hannibal because scary movies and TV shows aren’t my thing, I really love the shirt and its design is pretty inconspicuous to the unknowing. Except when I wore it to work one day, my co-worker was like, “Oh my God, it’s the death moth!” and I’m like, “the what-what?” * shoulder shrug * And… I don’t watch The Walking Dead either (I tried! it was too stressful!), but I’m loving how simplistic the cherokee rose necklace is. When you open the pendant, there’s a mirror on the inside, and on the back it’s inscribed with a quote that says “This rose started to grow right where the mother’s tears fell.”  Even though I’m not part of the fandom, I am sooooo happy for all you Richonne shippers!!!

Overall, I was super happy with all the items that came with every subscription. But the Deadpool shirt by Her Universe, you guys. You guuuuuys. IT IS GIVING ME SO MUCH LIFE. And the nail wraps go with it perfectly!

Okay, enough jabbering, let’s get onto the important part of the post: THE GIVEAWAY!

Level Up sent me an extra package full of goodies from all of the subscription services they have to offer and one of you lucky ponies can win it! FYI, both the wearable item and t-shirt come in my size (2x) so if you’ve got big booby-8s like me or are willing to tailor the tees, enter away!

Also, five of you will be get a code to get a free subscription for March’s Level Up Female Accessories subscription! This month’s accessory will feature Batman, Superman, and a special guest… I’m assuming it’s Wonder Woman. Who else could it be?!

The giveaway starts today (March 9) and ends next Tuesday, March 16. Winners will be chosen and contacted the morning of the 17th.

Code winners, please make sure you use the code by the 19th because that’s the last day to subscribe to all subscriptions from Loot Crate.

Win a Geeky Tank from Fifth Sun!

— GIVEAWAY NOW CLOSED — 

If you follow Le Fancy Geek regularly, you know how obsessed I am with paring any garment that’s adorned with floral prints with something geeky. It’s my most favorite combination! Well, Fifth Sun has a wide array of cute geeky tanks and tees and a few of them combine flowers with some of my fave characters from Marvel Comics and Star Wars! I feel like they were made just for me!! The folks at Fifth Sun were gracious enough to send me one tank of my choice to review too. I seriously spent an hour and half browsing their web store before I decided to get this tank with Thor’s hammer Mjolnir, or as I like to call it “mew-mew.” I’m itching to get a Star Wars tank or tee in the near future though. I think I was just overwhelmed with their Star Wars selection because they have so many cute ones that it was impossible to settle on just one.

The only thing that I was slightly worried about was how the tank would fit me. I border between XL and XXL in tops (#bigboobproblems), and the largest size they carry in women’s is an XL. That being said, the tank isn’t too snug on me (their tops fit like junior’s sizes), but I tend to tuck my tees and tanks into my skirts and wear cardigans all the time anyway so I have no issues with the way it fits me. And how perfect does it look with my pink pleated skirt and mint cropped cardigan? Hella perfect! That’s how perfect! I wore this outfit to the first Bay Area Geek Girl Brunch meet-up last weekend (sans the crinoline) since it had a Marvel Comics theme. I think the addition of the crinoline underneath my skirt gave my ensemble a geeky retro pin up vibe too, which is a look I’ve been gravitating towards a lot lately.

Overall, I’m pretty much like: This tank. I like it. ANOTHER!

But which one do I choose?!

And now for the part I’m sure you’ve all been waiting for: Fifth Sun is giving two of you lucky ponies the chance to win one tank of your choice! I’ll be picking one winner via Instagram and one from the comments section of this blog post. ☺

To enter for a chance to win a tank from Fifth Sun, you must do the following:

Rules:

  • You must have a public Instagram account to enter via Instagram.
  • You can repost the picture once a day until the last day of the contest (Friday, September 2 @ 11:59 pm).
  • Only leave ONE comment on the blog for entry.
  • The giveaway is open to U.S. residents only.
  • Giveaway starts Friday, August 28 and ends September 4 @ 11:59pm PST.

Good luck, my little ponies! And if you don’t win, don’t worry. Fifth Sun will be giving me a special coupon code for all my readers to use after the giveaway ends next week, so stay tuned for that. ☺

Minnie Mouse x LeSportsac Giveaway!

{ GIVEAWAY NOW CLOSED. Thank you to everyone who entered! }

Hey my little ponies!

I’m all kinds of excited to announce this month’s giveaway: a Minnie Mouse x LeSportsac “Kasey” purse!!!

I actually have a Kasey purse with Fifi Lapin‘s bunny print from a few years ago — I find that it’s ideal if you’re a minimalist and don’t need to cary a whole lot on your person. It’s a lot smaller than the tote I reviewed yesterday, but it’s still very functional, just as cute, annnd it can be yours! Yep, YOURS!!!

Old and new followers are more than welcome to enter, and there are quite a few entry options which all involve following Le Fancy Geek on various social media platforms. But please don’t follow and then unfollow once the giveaway is over, that’s not very nice!

Thank you to LeSportsac for making this giveaway possible! Good luck, ponies! 

Cheers,

Unicorn Crafts

Hey ponies! The Unicorn Crafts giveaway I’m hosting was supposed to end tonight at midnight, but I decided to extend it until this Saturday, the 23rd at midnight PST to give you all a bit more time to enter for a chance to win it. Yaaaay!

Be sure to go –> here <– in order to enter the giveaway. 

Anywho, I want to showcase some of the other cute little trinkets that can be found at Unicorn Crafts as well so you can all get a sense of just how awesome Faheema’s shop is! Though it may be called Unicorn Crafts, there is certainly more to it than just adorable little unicorns — you can also find necklaces, rings, earrings, and pins with narwhals (technically the unicorn of the sea… oops), Totoro, Doctor Who, R2-D2, kawaii looking snacks like bacon, donuts, cookies, avocados, macarons, (etc) with little smiley faces, and many, many, MANY more things!

Besides the necklace I got at AnimeExpo, I also picked up a Game of Thrones pin with House Stark’s sigil of a dire wolf and motto “Winter is coming” for my sister since she’s a huge GoT fan. This was a few weeks before I started watching the show, so now I’m bummed that I didn’t watch it any sooner. * le sigh *

Your teeth are totally throbbing from all the sweetness that is Unicorn Crafts now, aren’t they? Sorry I’m not sorry about that. ☺

Be sure to check out Unicorn Craft’s online shop for more goodies, and,  of course, don’t forget to enter the giveaway!

Cheers,
Nina

Unicorn Crafts Review & Giveaway!

{ Giveaway now closed }

Hey my little ponies!

Last month I got to meet Faheema Chaudhury, the mastermind behind Unicorn Crafts, at AnimeExpo and picked up a couple of things — one being a purple resin necklace with an adorable little unicorn and bright colored sprinkles that I’m wearing in the picture above. I don’t exactly remember how I came across Unicorn Crafts… like, I don’t know if it was through another blogger’s post or a hashtag search on Instagram — all I know is that I fell in love with with all the accessories with cute unicorns and nerdy illustrations (R2D2, Doctor Who, Sailor Moon, macarons with smiley faces, etc) on them, so it was only natural for me to start stalking following Unicorn Crafts on Instagram to keep up with all the kawaiiness. You can’t imagine how excited I was to see that there’d be a Unicorn Crafts booth at AnimeExpo while I was there too! Or maybe you can imagine how excited I was. Who knows?  🙂

It doesn’t really seem like it needs to be said, but I’m completely smitten with my necklace! It combines everything I love: unicorns (duh), sprinkles, and the color purple. Oh, and I can’t forget to mention that it’s all on a super fancy frame. All things that look fancy with a geeky/cute element pretty much have my name written all over it. I kind of feel like this necklace was made just for me — obviously it wasn’t, but still. Faheema illustrated the unicorn herself (all the pieces for Unicorn Crafts feature her original artwork), but what’s so awesome about it is that it’s made from Shrinky Dinks (in case you’re too young to know what that is, it’s this)!

Would you like one too? Well, you’re in luck little ponies because Unicorn Crafts is graciously sponsoring a giveaway for one of you lucky ponies to win the same necklace that I have! HURRAY!!!

Back to School LeSportsac Giveaway #2

GIVEAWAY NOW CLOSED. THANK YOU TO ALL WHO ENTERED! 

Hey my little ponies! <– I’m calling you folks my little ponies now because I like ponies better than kitties. Thank you to all who entered my first Back to School LeSportsac Giveaway! I will be picking a winner SOON — hopefully I can sit down after I get off work today and print out the entries, cut them up, fold them, shuffle them,  pick one out of a hat, and then announce the winner tonight! I’m so sorry to keep those who entered in suspense. I’ll get on it. I promise!

In the meantime, the second and last Back to School LeSportsac giveaway will be for this hella cute Messenger Backpack in their funky “Giddy Up” print!

This backpack is EXTREMELY versatile as it can also be used as a messenger bag! Sling it over your back or over one shoulder — this bag can be used however you want. When I took it out of the box I thought, “Oh, that’s a cute messenger bag.” Then I started playing around with the straps and was like, “HOLY CRAP IT’S A BACKPACK TOO!” I failed to see that LeSportsac had mentioned it in the email they sent me. Derp. It was still a delightful surprise though and it’s roomy to boot which is always important! There are two pockets in the front of the bag when you open it up — perfect for storing things that you need easy access too. There’s also a side pocket which I’d probably put a little compact and chapstick in (because who wants chapped lips at school or anywhere for that matter?), or even a pen. Do you ever find yourself digging for a pen when you suddenly need one? Like when you need to write something down, or if someone asks for a writing utensil to jot a quick note? That little pocket will save you from digging! The larger pocket is great for holding a few books for an English class, an iPad or laptop (best to hold a laptop in if you’re using it as a backpack), notebook, and other essentials. There’s also another zip pocket on the back of the inside of the bag to store other small items. I personally like it best as a messenger bag, but I do love that this bag gives you another option (and one that’s good for your back and shoulders!). 🙂

Like the last giveaway, you’re more than welcome to enter whether you’re in school this semester or not 😀
