    Gifts For Your Geeky Valentine

    I’m not into too many holidays, and Valentine’s Day is certainly one of those I could easily do without – but I have to admit; Valentine’s Day inspires some of my favorite gift ideas! With the handmade market in full swing, it has only gotten better! From the funny, to the creepy, to the downright adorable, even sweet DIY kits – some of these goodies make me wish Valentine’s Day came around more than once a year. Still looking for the perfect gift for your geeky Valentine? {Slacker!} Maybe some of these ideas will help you out. The Season of the Mixtape is upon us! My husband and I are big on playlists nowadays, we have them for every occasion. But there’s something to be said about handing your love a cassette with every Cure song that reminds you of them. If only we could find a radio with cassette playing

    Gaming Angel’s Holiday Guide: Gadgets

    Happy Holidays! Below are our gadget picks for this holiday. Many of us want the same thing or more than one thing on this list because we all love our gadgets! Kindle Fire Price: 199.00 Rating: All Ages Recommended by: Trina The Kindle Fire has amazing specs for a tablet that is only $199. If you can do without a camera, this may be the best tablet for your dollars. The Silk Browser will provide even faster web browsing and while the tablet has a dual core processor, it works faster by storing things on the cloud for easy accessibility. I also like the User Interface on the tablet, something tablets other than Apple’s have not been able to master. iPad Price: Starting at $499. Rating: All Ages Recommended by: Trina How can you not recommend an iPad for anyone that may not have one yet. Yes, a competitor is

    Sanrio Small Gift LA

    To celebrate 50 years of Sanrio, they decided to tour America with their Small Gift Pop Up Shops. I visited their Los Angeles stop but you can still catch the stops in Atlanta and Miami. Find all the information here about the events. If you are unable to make those locations, you can still purchase some of the special anniversary items on the Sanrio website here. There was a sweater at the shop in LA that I really wanted but they ran out in my size. So I was told to watch the Sanrio website because they will be adding exclusive items weekly. Which means there is still a chance I can get my hands on that awesome sweatshirt. The event itself was amazing. Every Hello Kitty fan would have lost it just walking in! It was Sanrio paradise. In the middle of the hanger was a indoor minature golf

    Gamer Wedding 101: Cake Toppers

    Our very own @gamingangel is getting married tomorrow! In honor of her, it’s time for more ways to make your wedding reflect one of your favorite hobbies and subcultures. If you’re brand-new to the whole “wedding planning” thing, you might not know that there are people out there in the world that can do amazing things with pastries. Cakes, more specifically. And if you think you’d be the first person to ask for a video game cake, well, you’d be wrong. To wit, the best Mario cake I’ve ever seen: This is the best way to be sure that gaming has prominent placement. Find a talented cake artist, sit down with them, and work out a plan. However, this isn’t always cost-effective. In fact, I’ll go out on a limb and say that it’s one of the most expensive wedding options you can choose. If you’ve got the cash and
