About Aeryn Lynne
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!

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
Okay, so this event isn’t in Toronto, but Guelph is kinda close! Do you enjoy crafting? I have this huge softspot for Stampin’ Up! crafting, ’cause thanks to joining their ranks as a Demonstrator a few years ago, I made a ton of friendships that will last a lifetime (even though I’m no longer demonstrating today.) Two fabulous demonstrators, Samantha Forrest and Julie Leblanc, are running a day camp on Sunday June 2nd, and if you’re in the need to craft, it will be an amazing day to get your...read more
So April was a crazy month for my family! I have a new niece in the form of a French Mastiff/Chocolate Lab; at 9 weeks old now, she’s all kinds of adorable and a LOT of work! I’ve had to help family move, fix a couple computers and help babysit that new puppy-niece, as well as my human-nephew at different times all over April. So yeah, my blog has been a bit quiet while I’ve been lending a hand. And because of all that work, I’ve been sitting on some fabulous black & white finds this month that I’ve been...read more
I feel like I need to preface this with saying I’m not out to get every store that doesn’t cater to plus-sized fashion. I get that not every fashion institute would feel secure in their design talents to create stunning wear for 14+ figures. I also get that many designers and marketers are more comfortable believing people over 14+ simply don’t exist in the fashion world. Through some email marketing efforts directed at me and my blog today, I was enlightened to la Vie en Rose’s unfortunate choice of wording within...read more
If you haven’t marked it in your calendar yet, Sunday May 12th is Mother’s Day! Do you know what you’ll be getting your mom? Do you have any traditions in place? Each year my sibs and I do something different for our mom. Sometimes we group our funds together for one awesome gift, or we go our separate ways to show her how amazing she is to each of us individually. We haven’t talked about what to do this year, but I think she just might be getting three gifts for 2013 (one from each of us,) along with a...read more
There is one thing that every blogger fears: having an inaccessible blog. You may have heard of the recent brute force attacks on WordPress based blogs, and the steps you can take to help prevent your site from being broken into (ie. don’t have an account with the name Admin for login, create a really strong password based on upper/lowercase letters and numbers, etc.) Just two days ago, the server hosting numerous sites that I’ve built, including Geek with Style, all went down. The best the hosting company could come up with is...read more
When you’re in the mood or flat out needing to pick up a tube of lipstick, a jar of foundation, and/or your next gorgeous pallet of eye shadow, what do you look for in a store that you’re going to make your purchase from? I have a few specific requirements when choosing where to make most of my purchases, and they include: Having a current selection of items I find in magazines, ’cause if I see something “New and Improved” in a mag, chances are I’m going to want to try it! Comparable prices,...read more
