Friday Favorites: March 8

Friday Fave 3-8
Many times I come across things that I absolutely love or use on a daily basis, but aren’t able to turn into full posts. Maybe they’re not geeky enough, maybe they’re not hostess-y enough, but they are all Geeky Hostess-approved. I’ve decided to start compiling them into Friday Favorites! Take a look–I’m sure you’ll find something you love as well!

Favorite Kickstarter: Job Hunters
Sorry guys, you’ll be hearing about this one for a while from me. But seriously. I’m so excited about possibly creating a second season of this web series. If you’re able to help promote the Kickstarter by tweeting, FBing, reblogging, anything, please do! I’m happy to give interviews or get you any promotional content you may need as well. You can check out the Kickstarter here.

Favorite Beauty Item: Philosophy’s Kiss Me Lip Balm
My lips/skin have been extra dry lately, but as always, my Philosophy Kiss Me Lip Balm has saved the day. I’ve used this stuff for years. It comes in a clear/yellow and a red, but they both go on fairly sheer. It looks great, feels great, and lasts a long time. You can find the red one for $9.49 here.

Favorite Treat: Halfpops
Half-popped popcorn. I should be able to stop right there. This stuff is addicting. It’s a little pricy per bag, but the enjoyment and wonder is worth it. It looks like you can only buy a 12-pack on Amazon, but just do it. You’ll eat them.

Favorite Press: Wired
Wired’s Geek Mom had a great article about my “Geek and Feminine” panel at Emerald City Comicon and included mention of my geeky makeup show, OneUpMakeup. They also mentioned our fave makeup company, Espionage Cosmetics! Check it out!

Favorite Comic: Scott Pilgrim
I’ve known about Scott Pilgrim for a while, and loved the movie, but have just recently got around to reading the graphic novels. Oh man. I was laughing out loud a lot. Just read them. They’re a quick and fun read, and something you’ll love having around to re-read or loan out to friends. And the box set’s only $40 on Amazon!

Favorite Baking Item: GIANT Icing Tips
I’ve been frosting my cupcakes with normal “cupcake decorating” tips for a while, and have been disappointed that they haven’t looked like the ones I see in cupcake shops. I finally found out the secret. Giant pastry tips. These things make cupcakes SO easy to frost and they look exactly like the professional ones. Yay! Here’s a great set to get you started.

What are you obsessing over this week?


  1. Oh, awesome! I’ve been wondering how decorators got their cupcakes to look the way they do.

    I’m currently geeking out over Geek Chic Cosmetics upcoming “Summoners” line, the third season of Lost Girl, and Feminist Frequency’s launch of the “Tropes vs Women in video games” series!

  2. Yes! I’m also psyched about the Tropes vs. Women launch. I haven’t gotten a chance to see the first episode yet, but it’s on my list!

  3. Well, in my opinion, it definitely does not disappoint!
