Friday Faves

I love hair accessories. If you see me, more likely that not,  I’m wearing a headband to hold my hair back or have a clip of some kind adorning my hair. This edition of Friday faves is dedicated to rad hair accessories made by equally rad ladies.

(clockwise) // These glitter heart pins are so cute! You can find them at Make+Do. Or you can try your hand at making your own! The owner of the shop posted a tutorial on her blog. I made a couple and always get complimented when I wear them. Here’s the post if you’re interested in making your own —> D.I.Y. Glitter Heart Pins // I’m half-Sierra Leonean so Ankara and African textiles in general have always been a part of my style. These Ankara braided headbands from QuellyRue are so colorful. Sure to brighten any outfit up! // Gwen, of A Geek and Her Oven, recently added bows to her shop. They’re all darling, but my favorite is Liz. Named after Liz Lemon of 30 Rock.I love the soft blue color and hello?! It’s covered in donuts. DONUTS! Find bows and other geeky accessories at A Geek and Her Shop.

Share your favorite shops to find hair accessories! I’m always searching for new ones.


Geeky Confessions


Mariko of Gamerwife is hosting Geeky Confessions, a link up where you…yep. Spill your geeky confessions. It’s been so much fun reading all of the Geeky Confessions going around. I’m seriously surprised at how many people share my view on Dr. Who. I thought I was alone! Enjoy my Geeky Confessions and then join in the fun if you haven’t already.



I’m not a fan of Dr. Who. I tried to get into it, I really did. All of my friends adore this show so naturally, I thought I would too. NOT! I found it terribly boring and stopped watching after about 3 episodes.



I don’t know how I missed this series as a teen. I was super into vampires around the time Buffy aired (LJ Smith’s Night World series!!!), but never managed to watch Buffy. The entire series is available on Netflix so I’ll tackle it one of these days.




I love gaming on my consoles and PC, but I am also obsessed with mobile games. I get a lot of crap for playing Match 3 games, but I love them. Bejeweled, Frozen Free Fall, and my favorite, Fruit Heroes Saga. I can’t get enough of them and am always stalking the App Store for new match 3s.


Ok, now your turn. If you haven’t yet, share your geeky confessions on your blog and link up with Gamerwife!
