Unlock the Pregnancy Badge with Trymester iOS App

Trymester helps Canadians conceive. #TrymesterApp

Quite early this morning, I published a bit of a rant regarding my issues with not being pregnant. Or more to the point, other peoples issues with my not being pregnant.  The thing is, I want to raise a child, the sooner the better, and I have a good chance of that being the case later this year; once my health gets back on the right track after surgery.  There is something to … [Read more...]

My time to have a baby, you say? Just don’t.

Conceiving problems, can't get pregnant, #TTC

At 35 years of age, I'm well acquainted with that ticking clock. It’s loud, and obnoxious, and it makes me do complicated math to figure out if I’d still have the energy to catch a toddler that would undoubtedly run circles around me.  This past weekend, I was told (for what is now officially the millionth time) "It’s time for you to have a child of your own!" This happened … [Read more...]

Keeping Business Casual with Addition Elle’s Michel Studio

michel-studio-business-casual

One of my first blog posts ever on Geek with Style was about Michel Studio (before I changed the site name to "Geek with Style" even.) Four years ago I fell in love with a clothing line that would convey serious business woman, while simultaneously being super comfortable and fun to wear. I came across this line while looking for something to wear at Toronto blog conference, … [Read more...]

Incredibly Ridiculous Facebook App Noises, and How To Get Rid of Them

Facebook and It's Annoying Noise

So yesterday had me standing around a local crafts store (for TWO whole hours,) while the nephew Kit sat in a classroom and had fun making art. For the first half hour, I went around the store and made a wish list of pretty much their entire stock of everything, 'cause this geek loves to get her craft on. But, staring at items I'd love to have, at prices that aren't entirely in … [Read more...]

Sage 50: Keeping Canadian Small Businesses Financially Organized

Psst! I'll let you in on a little secret. Ready for it? Okay, here it is! Professional blogging is not easy. It really isn't.

How to Get The Most of Your Julep Maven Box

How To Get The Most Out of Your Julep Maven Box

I've been getting a lot of email and comments on how to improve Julep Maven Box selections after a few reveals shown on Instagram, particularly when one of my boxes came with dry shampoo.

REVIEW: Marvel’s Secret Wars, Armor Wars #2 (Iron Man)

Marvel's Secret Wars, Battle World: Armor Wars #2

Two issues into a series based in Marvel's Secret Wars: Battle World, and I'm entirely enjoying the story. I'm still attempting to understand the whole Battle World premise itself. If you've been following along in the world of Marvel Comics, what we knew of "our" earth Earth-616 and Earth-1610 couldn't save the whole multiverse from imploding on itself, and we're now left with … [Read more...]
