About Aeryn Lynne
Jewellery that sparkles, and pink lipstick that shines;
tablets and smartphones that keep her online;
brand name jeans that fit and a pair of cute boots with bling;
these are just a few of Aeryn’s favourite things!
Remember that song? It was something Aeryn had repeatedly played on her old record player as much as her parents could handle. And whether or not irony is involved, it very much became the basis of what Geek with Style is today. Aeryn wants to share with you some things that maker her happy, in hopes that it’ll inspire happy thoughts for you too!
Aeryn Lynne is a total Geek in her love for technology, and has been an avid user and supporter of online tech since 1998. She also has a penchant for pretty clothes, and is living the curvy fashion liberation! This Geek with Style writes about her fabulous finds in tech, fashion and beauty, ’cause she couldn’t get enough of show and tell as a kid.
A ‘Jackie of all Trades’, Aeryn has a lot of insight for new and upcoming consumer technologies, particularly for computers/laptops, tablets/netbooks, and smart phones. She has a huge regard for Steve Jobs, the man who turned Geek into Chic, but is by far not Apple’s #1 fan. Some friends will go so far as saying that she is “anti-Apple”, but it’s really more along the lines of “pro-everything else first”.
Aeryn’s other hobby is finding and drooling over fashionable plus-sized/curvy clothes, shoes and accessories. She Elle Oh Vea EEE LOVES fashion, and is a card carrying member of the Fatshion Revolution.
Before Y2K, it seemed like the only tops available for beyond XL girls were white, long sleeved shirts with tiny little rosebuds patterned over the entire canvas, or checkered monstrosities … Ugh. So as Aeryn wound up with mostly patterned shirts and plaid in her closet from lack of choice while growing up, she has since been actively searching for stylish clothing that fit and advocates for proper fashion choices for young/teenage girls with curves.
When not blogging, she’s problem-solving and designing websites for businesses and bloggers alike. Aeryn has become a reputable source for friends, family and twitter followers when they’re looking for answers on how to proceed in their own pursuits for a technological nirvana.
Would you like to contact Aeryn Lynne for an upcoming PR project? Please click here to find out more info and contact information. I welcome all requests, but I’m particularly interested in talking with you about plus-size, full figured fashion, computer/tablet/smart phone technology and apps!

It’s weird. I don’t quite feel the holiday spirit despite getting work done on my Holiday Gift Guide, and seeing everything sparkle and shine online. I love the holidays, and look forward to them all year long, ‘cause despite the cold of the outdoors – there’s this simple warmth of ensuring you spend time with friends and family and just appreciate those relationships with fun evenings and music that everyone knows. I mean, can you easily name that tune from these few words? “Chestnuts roasting over an open fire…” “I...read more
We’re fast approaching the end of another year; a time where its just starting to get much colder after months of beautiful weather. Families are apart more than ever, whether its because of work or school or health; there’s this rise of “keeping busy” and its spilling over days that were traditionally meant for family. Its also become a time where our friends, family, neighbours and generally people everywhere need each others help to be reminded that there is warmth to be found. Whether, its a need for funds, time,...read more
You might have figured out by now that I have a love affair with bags. I’m a complete bag lady. You name it, totes, handbags, computer bags, even luggage, I love collecting them! It’s my thing. So when Heys asked me to review their Nottingham collection, I might have squealed just a little bit! Not only are they a Canadian company, this International powerhouse for comfort and style is from my home town, Toronto! The Heys Tan Doctor’s Handbag that I had picked to review did not disappoint in anyway. Its soft to the...read more
Hey Simpsons geeks! I have a great giveaway for you just in time for the holiday season! The 16th season of “The Simpsons” is coming out on Blu-ray and DVD on December 3rd, and you’ve got a chance to win a copy here! TheHubs is an absolute fan – so much so that his in-laws have taken this fact to heart and love to gift him “The Simpsons” paraphernalia in abundance. Maybe this year I can get them to get him this DVD, because its just what he needs to continue his collection. Have you seen the limited...read more
Not sure if you’re familiar with this conflict, but there is a war on words in a particular sector of the fashion industry. There is this vicious cycle where 14+ women don’t want to utilize the term “plus-size” when they discuss clothing and themselves, and yet are stuck using this term, because other explanatory choices have found their way to offend. Bigger women (and most likely men too) want a term that will give voice to their needs, while still empowering them to look for fashionable items that will make them...read more
Just hear those sleigh bells jingling Ring ting tingling too… No matter what, I can’t get this song out of my head right now! It’s a sign that it’s time! The year is near to an end and the holiday season is upon us to remind each other during the dreary, cold and wet weather that we mean something to each other. It’s time to find those little trinkets that say, “I can’t live life without you in it, here’s a bit of appreciation.”I have a gift guide launching very soon, but until then, I want to give you just a small...read more

Have you heard of the LG G2 smartphone? I’ll admit, I didn’t expect much when I had agreed to review it. I hadn’t heard much about its features, and honestly, how different can smartphones be these days? I’ve quickly come to the conclusion that I was wrong to dismiss it so easily, and am now entirely smitten with this sweet little phone! LG G2 Smartphone I surprised both TheHubs and myself when I made the decision to make this android Jelly Bean (4.2.2) smartphone my main go-to tech for my communication needs,...read more
Wow, Pinterest is really amping up their social activity recently! You may remember the post I did only a week ago on Rich Pins, and why you need to act now if your website’s images are being pinned. And now Pinterest has just rolled out interactive mapping with help of Foursquare and MapBox. What does this mean? Check out my pinterest board, based on my hometown Toronto. Below you’ll see what travel information is added to a pin. The info is a bit basic at the moment, but I can see Pinterest adding a collection of similar pins...read more
As you may have seen on Instagram or Facebook recently, I had the chance to check out Ripley’s Aquarium of Canada during the week it had first opened. I was really excited, ’cause I usually make it a point to check out aquariums in every city I visit, so was stoked the moment I heard Toronto was finally going to have on of its own. The aquarium finally opening its doors to the public couldn’t be timed more perfectly for TheHubs & I as we needed to find something to do to celebrate 15 years of dating each other, lol. ...read more
