Muggle Struggle

I haven’t been feeling very magical lately. And as you may have noticed, my blog game has been super weak because I haven’t written a damn thing since November 2017. YIKES. I even missed my 7-year blogging anniversary back in April! Who knew being an adult with a full-time job would leave one so restless? Hahahahaha… ::sobbing::

But SDCC is just around the corner, and I’m starting to feel very much like Harry Potter going back to Hogwarts! I get to see my sister, and surround myself with my magical geeky friends once more and I. CAN’T. WAIT.

Plus it’ll be nice to be around witches and wizards who will understand and appreciate my geeky themed outfits! I wore this inconspicuous geeky outfit to work last week (and Sunday because I’m an outfit repeater) and no one could tell I incorporated Harry Potter into it with my “Mischief Managed” tank by Jordandené or my cute pins. 😦

Anyhow, I’ve been feeling the urge to get back into blogging as I’ve been reading TONS of comics. Book reviews are something I’ve wanted to incorporate on Le Fancy Geek, and I know I’ve done a few, but comics are pretty much all I’ve been reading lately, and they’ve helped me become a voracious reader once more. I had a reading goal of 30 books for this year and I’ve already surpassed it because of all the graphic novels I’ve read! And I want to talk about some cool ones I’ve come across because I need to geek out about them!! And with SDCC coming up, there are bound to be endless things I’ll want to share on here!!!

I also have some cute geeky outfit photos I’ve posted on my Instagram account, but not on the blog, so I’ll be sharing those soon!

I Myself am Strange and Unusual

jordandene-shirt-of-the-month

Jordandene’s last few Shirt of the Month designs has been making me add things to my must-watch list. First there was last month’s “Make it so” Star Trek: The Next Generation tee, and now this month’s is Lydia Deetz’s iconic quote from Beetlejuice! I honestly can’t even remember the last time I watched Beetlejuice, but I remember it scared the figurative sh!t out of me when I was little. Anything that had to do with ghosts/death was just a no-go for me. I found that as I’ve gotten older I have more of an appreciation for the spooky and macabre, so I’m sure I’d totally enjoy revisiting Beetlejuice. 🙂

I adore this quote though because I relate to it 100%. I’ve always been a bit of an oddball; I’ve been called “weird” countless times when I was a kid because of my sense of humor or because of how I’m overly passionate about the things I’m interested in. But isn’t that what living the geeky life is all about?

If you yourself are strange and unusual and want to show it off it loudly and proudly, be sure trick or treat yo’self to this shirt ASAP because today is the last day to purchase it. Don’t forget to use my special code LEFANCYGEEK25 to save 25% off your order too!

Make It So

jordandene-shirt-of-the-month

Jordandené is a well-known fashion staple for geeks, and they’re definitely one of my favorite places to grab cool geekwear. Their shop is stocked with cozy tees, tanks, sweaters, accessories, and home goods with beautifully scripted quotes from different fandoms — from Star Wars, Harry Potter, Disney, and even Parks & Rec, they’ve got the gamut covered. All of their wearables are unisex too, so everyone can wear them! I love how I can easily get away with repping my fandoms in such a discreet and stylish way whenever I wear anything from them 🙂

With all that said, I’m very pleased and honored to announce that I am one of their brand new ambassadors! * happy dance * 

One [of the many] cool thing[s] Jordandené does is release a special shirt of the month that’s only available for the duration of the month, and for September it’s Captain Picard’s famous one-liner “Make it so” from Stark Trek: The Next Generation. I’ve been meaning to watch TNG for the longest time, so this tank is like extra motivation for me to get on it. But if you’re a Trekkie and love Captain Picard, you’ll want to order this ASAP because it’ll only be available until the end of this week! It comes in red or gray, and you can choose to get it as a tank (like me), t-shirt, or slouchy tee. I’ve let some cool shirt of the months slide by and am full of regret — don’t be like me!
