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!

I am SO happy that the beauty world is going “nude” in the best way they know how: by faking it! And as part of a sponsored post for Collective Bias®, I’ve accepted a challenge to go nude myself, and I like it! Okay, well luckily not that kind of nude, you know? This kind… Models and movie stars alike are sticking with “less is more” this season, which is an exciting concept. Finally, young women are being encouraged to highlight their best features instead of the extreme colour of the month. ...read more
The BlogHer conference is coming up once again, and this time it’s in Chicago! Last year, I had never been to New York, NY prior to the conference, and had an amazing time touring a bit of the city while getting to know some fabulous bloggers at the conference. And now Chicago, again a city I won’t yet stepped foot into before; TV-land’s home of my heros Mike & Molly (if it had actually filmed there, I would probably be sprucing up my stalking abilities right about now, lol.) Chicago is chock-filled of incredible...read more
So something funny happened in my mail today, and I wanted to share it with you all in a quick, hopefully amusing, six second or less video. Except, up until this point, Android users didn’t have access to the awesome that is Vine. I was all *sad face* and went to Google Play hoping to find an alternative. Imaging my second amazing surprise for the day, when I saw this… Like… YAY!! VINE IS NOW AVAILABLE FOR ANDROID! (Go download it now!) How awesome is this?? I’ve obviously haven’t been able to play with it...read more
June is just around the corner, which hopefully will be full of warm weather and sunlight to get our Vitamin D on! I’ve been exploring JustFab.ca like crazy over the past couple of days and have been inspired to create a lookbook of my favourite pics for the month. prev next Tower of Belem Lookbook Item 1 of 11This sleek and stylish, business inspired...read more
I don’t believe I’ve kept it a secret on how much I enjoy my Netflix account. TheHubs and I are like *this close* to fully cancelling our cable account (except we need to keep a couple international channels on hand for when our family decides to drop by for a week or two,) ’cause when we’re wanting to watch TV together, 9 times out of 10 we’re doing a marathon with one of the TV shows available on Netflix. I’m currently working on The Walking Dead. One of our more memorable marathons that TheHubs and...read more
Don’t Sweat It. Handle It! It’s past midnight, and I’ve had the worst case of writer’s block after the worst case of migraines (yep, plural,) that I’ve ever had the displeasure of experiencing this past week. Like with any career, it just happens sometimes; you get sick and then you get behind in work. No sweat right? Erm, right…. So now I’m playing catch-up against a deadline, and there are funny things happening on YouTube… It’s now past midnight, with mere hours until...read more
Very recently I got a chance to check out what we’ll be looking forward to for Fall 2013 at Addition Elle. I gotta tell you, I can’t wait for fall! I know. Summer hasn’t even stepped at our front door yet, and I’m already looking forward to orange leaves in the trees. But I’m also looking forward to these…. Look how epically wide-calf these boots are! And they’re not black, which is awesome, ’cause that was the only colour choice we were given last year through Addition Elle. What...read more
You know, I have to admit, as much as I’m looking forward to watching The Great Gatsby in theatre, I am even more interested in the 1920s-inspired fashion that will come from it. I’ve seen a bit of celebrity fashion that has well and truly brought the 1920′s back; the most recent being Chris Pine on CONAN. You’d think I’d be able to find a pic, right? Maybe I’ll find it again on Rogers on Demand, ’cause he had a serious suit on. I love Chris Pine. ANYWAY, so there are some fabulously inspired...read more
Have you got everything prepared yet for Mother’s Day this Sunday, May 12th? Your Prepare for Mother’s Day checklist may include reservations made for a brunch, a bottle of her favourite perfume, and/or a lovely bouquet of flowers (or a bouquet of flours, if she LOVES to bake perhaps?), but have you figured out what that finishing touch is? The pièce de résistance? That grande finale to make your mother’s day particularly special this year? To quote a Queen, Let them eat cake! Seriously, what’s a celebration...read more
It’s not my very first WordPress plugin ever made (I’ve made four or five others over the past year,) but I’ve finally reached my goal for adding my first (and hopefully useful) plugin to WordPress.org’s repository, WOOT! A fellow blogger was looking for a way to have Pinterest’s nopin=”nopin” code to work in her blog (to stop family photos from being pinned) and unfortunately WordPress does not recognize that particular code out of box. Everytime it was added to a blog post image, WordPress would...read more
