Where Have I Been???

That's the million dollar question isn't it? I wish I could give you a reasonable explanation, but my only real explanation is that I've been lazyyy! Recently, I've been trying to figure out where I want this blog to go and I think I have a pretty good idea. So now I'm working on doing a blog makeover! I'm gonna start with the name. Keep it Geek sounds good, but I've thought of something better: SuperLooks! It just fits so perfectly! The whole point of this blog is show off my superhero style (granted it's mostly marvel and batman, but still) and every look is a "super" look. Even if it's not blatantly obvious that it's based off of a superhero.  I want to show the world that you can dress geeky, and look sophisticated at the same time. Middle school days are over. A basic graphic tee and baggy jeans wont cut it anymore. Plus, there's so much cute geek clothes and accessories out there! And for reasonable prices! I'm making it my mission to show everyone!

I know I have been M.I.A for a while, but that's because I've finally moved into my own apartment! And it took me about two weeks after to get the internet setup. But now everything is sorted out. Let me show you guys what I've done with the place so far. Mind you I don't have any real furniture yet. I'll get that at some point. I have an air mattress and that's good enough for now. It's definitely better than sleeping on a love seat!

So I guess I'll start with the living room. All I have in there right now is my comic shelf and I've started on my "Great Wall". Basically my great wall is a wall full of framed comics. And not just any comics, shiny ones! I love collecting shiny comics and I always said that if I had my own place that I would frame them and hang them on the wall.

Next, I have the kitchen. There's not much to show for it except for my wine bottle collection (if you can't tell, I have a problem with collecting things). Let me add in that I acquired all these over a period of time. I'm in no way and alcoholic. I just like wine bottles. Most of them weren't very good anyway. For some reason I kept getting the bitter ones like Pinot Noir. Moscato was really good, but
I don't think there was enough alcohol in it.
Lastly, I have the bathroom. It's still a work in progress. I'm almost done with it but I need a shower curtain valance and a black bath mat. And yes, it's a batman bathroom. I pay bills, I pay rent, and if I want a batman bathroom, then I"m gonna have a batman bathroom!

And that's my place so far! I don't have any pictures of the bedroom because for one, it's a mess. and two, there's nothing really great in it. I haven't got my posters up yet because I'm still figuring out where furniture is gonna go. But when I figure it out, I'll show you. Until then, remember to keep it geek!

Another New Video!

This week's video is about me showing off my holo-foil comic collection. My initial comic collection is well over 100, so doing a video for all of them would take too much time.

Here's where you can go to keep up with your own comic collection

Shopping Tips!

Shopping Tips

These are some shopping tips that I've acquired in the years of me clothes shopping and I want to share them with you in hopes that you find them useful. Mind you there aren't that many, but I still find it useful

1. Wear your hair in a ponytail or some kind of up-do. If you're going shopping for clothes, my best guess is that you're going to be taking clothes off and putting them back on and that can mess up your hair. Especially when it's down and can get tangled up in everything. Keeping it in a bun or ponytail or whatever keeps the crazy hair to a minimum. So after hours of dressing room time, you still look good!

2. Wear a dress. It will save you a lot of time in the dressing room if you have a dress to just slip on and off. A skirt would be my second option. I guess it depends on what you're shopping for. Like, if it's just general clothes shopping or you're looking for a new shirt, wear a dress. If you're just pants and/or skirt shopping, then wearing a skirt would be fine. In any situation wearing a dress is the best way to go.

3. Wear slip on shoes. Any shoes without a buckle or lace will work. Zippers are fine. Heels? That depends on the person. I mean, if you've got the skills to walk around the mall all day in heels, then go for it! I won't stop you. But for me, I have to wear some sort flat shoe if I know I'm gonna be on my feet for awhile. Ballet flats, regular flats, vans, toms, sandals (not gladiator!), flip-flops,boots, and even kitten heels are all good options. The reason to wear these type of shoes is pretty much the same as the dress. It makes dressing and undressing easier and faster.

I hope these few tips helped! These are things that I do when I know I'm going out clothes shopping. Most of the time I shop online so I don't go out much. But when I do, I'm ready!

New Video!

I have a new video on Youtube up! It's a "What's in my bag" video.

I'm trying to get into the youtubing game. It's not hard, it just takes some time. But it's fun and I
 like making them! I already have a list of videos that I want to make. And I've also thought of some segments to do. Like, one of them is going to be called "Bat Talk" which is basically going to be me in my Batman onesie tell you guys stories and ranting and raving about my life. Most of the other videos I have planned are collection videos (I have a lot of stuff). My goal is to try and post a new video each week So keep on the lookout!

Lots of Loki Love

Go Green

This outfit right here is a classic example of how you can dress geeky but also have a hint of fashion at the same time. If I had the cash, I would totally this whole outfit! Unfortunately, I don't have the funds for a Celine bag. I do have the Loki shirt though. I got from a shop called WeLoveFine. They have all sorts of geeky clothes that look fashionable. And they're not "basic" looking either. What I mean by basic is that they're not just generic t-shirts with logos on them. There was some effort being put into the design of every piece of clothing that they have. Also their prices are pretty reasonable.

When You Don't Like Spidey, But You Enjoy His Color Scheme

Low Key Spider-Man

It's not that I don't like Spider-Man, it's just that I don't like the fact that he's the reason they pushed back Thor 3. Because they want to reboot him(again, For the 100th time), they had to push back making Thor 3 to make room for it. That doesn't sit well with me. Leave Spidey alone he had his chance. Twice. Other movies shouldn't be pushed back because you want to try it again. Now I have to wait longer than usual to get my Thor fix (hint-hint:I'm a huge Thor fan). And I"m not too thrilled about that. But it is what it is. All I can do know is wait.

Hiddles is my Valentine

Valentines with bae

Hiddles is bae. He will always be bae. There will never come a day when he is not. He's the reason why I don't have an actual boyfriend. I've set my standards high. Well, according to modern day men, they're high. I just want to find someone that I have some things in common with and that I'm attracted to. It's hard to find both in a man. It's either one or the other. I know he's out there, I haven't found him yet. So until then I'm gonna keep on loving Tom Hiddleston

No seriously, my love for Hiddles runs deep. peep my tumblr

Panther Pride!


I know this isn't exactly "geeky" but GO PANTHERS! Panthers all day! To be honest, I'm only a fan because I live in Charlotte and the football stadium is right down the street from me. Coming from a small town, I think that's the coolest thing ever!
