To Get What’s On the Tin, Read It Thoroughly

Hey friends! So I did something rash-ish recently… I needed a change in my life, which usually means I either wind up with a wild looking haircut, a bold dye job, or both. This time, I went with colouring which, 9 times out of ten, usually works in my favour. I love experimenting, and there are some really cool out-of-box colouring systems available on the shelves these days. I’ve been wanting to try an ombre style for-like-ever, and wound up picking up an off the shelf version on one of my last trips to the mall. I know, seriously, I...

Guardians of the Galaxy

Marvel’s GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY, Released this August 2014! Have you seen the trailer yet?

Marvel’s “Guardians of the Galaxy” finds space adventurer Peter Quill the object of a bounty hunt after stealing an orb coveted by a treacherous villain, but when Quill discovers the power it holds, he must find a way to rally the quartet of ragtag rivals hot on his trail to save the universe. Have you seen Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy trailer yet? If not, you can find it below! So… What do you think?  The racoon (Rocket) and tree (Groot) have both thrown me out of comic plot lines so far, though not entirely sure why, as its not...

FORD NAIAS F150 REVEAL 2014

Highlights from My Trip to NAIAS in Detroit with Ford

It seems like 2014 is the year of the automobile for Geek with Style!  I’ve been to a few car-related events already, which all began with an invitation to Detroit, MI for the North American International Auto Show thanks to Ford Canada.  I wasn’t sure what to expect, but it became one of those trips that I’ll remember for a long time coming. I think I wound up with only 8 hours sleep for the few days I spent in Detroit, because we had so much to see and do in so little time! Honestly, I’ve tried writing this post out...

Chapters Runnymede Goodbye

Saying Goodbye to Chapters Runnymede – Hello Shoppers Drug Mart?

October 23rd, 1998 is a special date for me.  A little over fifteen years ago, I made some great friendships that helped me get through my first month of university at YorkU; particularly with this one guy that was 2 years my senior.  We were quick to become friends and decided to try out dating, which is how Pleasantville became more than just a movie for us that Friday night; and subsequently the Runnymede Theatre, which is where we chose to watch the film, will always be a place that we hold dear. That first date night was the start...

We Girls Just Want to Have Holiday Fun

I had the most amazing time with my girlfriends at my home last week!   I was in much need of a Girls’ Night Out, and thanks to Moskato Life’s help, I was able to provide a really fun time for everyone that came over.  It was so enjoyable, we didn’t want the night to end, and were discussing on doing this get-together thing again very soon. I started putting this party together as a way to get into the holiday spirit, as up to this point, I was going through the motions, but not really feeling the joy as...

Holiday Girl's Night Out with Moskato Life

A Girl’s Night of Holiday Glam and Moskato Life

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 wish I knew how, to break this spell…” “I’m dreaming...

Geek with Style - Holiday Gift Guide 2013

Spreading a Little Holiday Cheer to Everyone You Meet

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, gifts, or food, its a time to give back to...

Beautiful Heys Nottingham Handbag

Fabulous Nottingham Bags from Heys

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 touch, I almost want to use...

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 edition 3D...

Dear "Real Women", I'm sorry.

I feel the need to apologize to all “Real Women” out there…

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 shine. Some women have given up the hard fight...

Gift Giving Made Easy with Shoppers Drug Mart

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...

LG G2

5 Tips and Tricks for Your LG G2 Smartphone

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! 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, especially since I had bought my then-current phone just over a...
