ncbd-the-hungover-edition-march-25-2015

Welcome to another edition of #NewComicBookDay on Geek with Style! This would be the "Hungover Edition", 'cause that's how I still feel even today, after Comicon Toronto. It was an absolute blast! Great costumes from a multitude of fandoms, one dude was even dressed as a jar of Nutella, which was definitely a first for me. I cannot wait to share the pics, comics and maybe even … [Read more...]

Top Spring Picks from Addition Elle

Spring to Addition Elle 2015

If today's rain is anything to go by, we're finally into spring! It even felt like it was 1 or 2 degrees above zero at some points throughout the day, so time to get the shorts out! Or at the very least, put those thermals away finally. I'm always excited to find out what Addition Elle has in store, each and every season, though I find spring and fall styles to be my faves. So, … [Read more...]

#NewComicBookDay - Toronto Comicon Edition

A new week, a #NewComicBookDay woot! This week's #PullList is a bit short (or maybe not? maybe?,) but that's okay, 'cause I've got LOTS to talk about with Toronto Comicon coming up, which is less than two weeks from now! Have you got your tickets yet? Did you know kids under 12 are free with adult admission? I'm thinking of bringing KitKat along again for a day, 'cause he loved … [Read more...]

A new set of movies was released on Blu-Ray/DVD at your favourite entertainment store yesterday, including Ben Stiller's Night at the Museum: Secret of the Tomb! I got to watch this with KitKat and Jay a few nights ago, which made for a hilarious night in. If you're not familiar with the Night at the Museum trilogy (really, what rock do you call home??,) Ben Stiller, as Larry … [Read more...]

New Comics Released: Wed Mar 4, 2015, The Blank Cover Edition

comic book releases blank cover edition

A new Wednesday, a #NewComicBookDay WOOT! I learned something awesome about certain comic covers this week! I've been entirely curious over the blank covers that seem to be running a little more rampant these days, at least for the Marvel universe (I'm not sure if DC does the same thing.) For the life of me, I couldn't figure out what exactly blank cover comics were for. I'm … [Read more...]

“Don’t Frown, You’ll Get Wrinkles” and Other Advice I Didn’t Listen To

Ultra Lift Miracle Sleeping Night Cream

Were you ever told that "sage" advice while growing up? Don’t frown, because your face will wrinkle up in a weird way when you’re older. I have a few issues with my eyesight, including a greater sensitivity to sunlight. I always looked angry/frowny-faced while I sat/played/lived in the sunlight, without any sunglasses to speak of. I was already wearing glasses to see properly, … [Read more...]

I Need Spring In My Life And On My Nails (nail art)

Bring the Spring Nail Art

Are your nails blue, because its absolutely freezing outside, instead of some fabulous nail polish colour? I am so very much done with winter, and really need spring to make an appearance, like yesterday (literally, yesterday was way too frigid for my bones.) That's why when #CollectiveBias Social Fabric® made a call for spring-related nail-art, I jumped at the chance to get … [Read more...]

Sushi roll with black chopsticks

A two-day festival at the gorgeous Japanese Canadian Cultural Centre, during the evenings of next Thursday and Friday (March 5th & 6th,) and tickets are going quick! Its not … [Read more...]

Shomi to Begin Airing Amazon’s “Mozart In The Jungle” Today

Mozart In The Jungle S01E01

Apparently I was living under a rock in late January when Shomi Canada announced it's partnership with to showcase a number of AP's original content to Canadians. This is huge news, as the much coveted TV/Movie portion of Amazon Prime ($99/year subscription service) is not available to the Canadian market. Like Netflix, Amazon has gone the route of original programming, and … [Read more...]

New Comics Released: Wed Feb 25, 2015, The Joker Edition

Feb 25, 2015 Comic Releases: Joker Edition

I almost called this one the Spider-Gwen edition, 'cause hello Gwen as a spidey hero.  I'll admit I didn't like Gwen so much in the most recent Spider-Man movie, but she had such a huge impact on Peter Parker/Spider-Man in past comics as being his first love, and ultimately was another loved one that he couldn't save from the bad guys. What could that do to a person's psyche, … [Read more...]

Track Your PR Contacts, Blog Ideas and Facebook Posts with These Tools

I'm doing this new trendy thing; trying to keep everything organized, including my blog work. Yes, there truly is such a concept! I was finding that I wasn't really keeping my blog ideas and upcoming events ordered in such a way that I would actually remember to type up events, that interested me most, on time. For instance, up to this point, my weekly comic related posts were … [Read more...]

The Order: 1886 – Reason enough to buy a PS4 Game Console?

The Order:1886 - Reason enough to buy a PS4 Game Console?

Yep, it's true. I bought a PS4 game through pre-order, without actually having a PS4 console at home to play it. Why? That's an entirely great question. This game had a preview at the FAN Expo in Toronto back in August 2014, and it was love at first sight. It's violent, and I'm not usually a big fan of violence, unless its Supernatural (it drives Jay, aka TheHubs, nuts that I … [Read more...]

Geek with Style: Valentines Beauty Bag

Happy Friday the 13th! I've been reminded of the fact of how lucky today is by stubbing my toe, not once, but thrice. Ow. Enough about oh so sore tootsies though, I've got a beauty bag to share with you! Also? Remember the KISS InstaWave I mentioned on my New Year's Eve Glam post? Well, I managed to take some pics this time to show you just how easy this hair curler really is! … [Read more...]
