Friday Favorites: September 6

Friday Faves Sept 6

Summer is over! Con season is over! (Ok, that’s a lie. I know of three more cons coming up in the next month or two.) Job Hunters production is over! (Also a lie. We’ve got a few tiny shoots left over this next month or so.) Time to sit around and relax and bask in all of my free time now that Fall is here! (HA! Why do I even try?)

Things may still be busy, but I think I’m at that point of the year where most summer things are starting to calm down and I can start being consistent with Geeky Hostess goodness again. I’ve got some really fun posts, parties, recipes and more in the works, so stay tuned! Here are my favorites from this past week:

Favorite Jewelry: Royal Star Necklace
I picked up this star necklace from the Sanshee booth at PAX, and I absolutely love it. It looks more expensive than it is, and I wear it on days where I need a bit of invincibility. You can find it online here.

Favorite Web Series: Shut Up and Sit Down
Board game reviews and instructions as they should have always been done: By an enthusiasitc British guy in costume. These are super well done. Watch them all here.

Favorite Song: Ylvis’ The Fox
Make no mistake: This is a goofy video made by a group that is essentially a Norwegian Lonely Island. No one making this thought it would be a serious video. That doesn’t make me love it any less. The tune is catchy and I caught myself singing along the second time I watched it. Enjoy.

Favorite Alcoholic Beverage: Three Olives’ Loopy Vodka
Sometimes, you just want your vodka to taste like Fruit Loops. Yes, that time is often when you’ve just turned 21 and you can handle ridiculously sweet things, but if you’re still a fan of fun-flavored vodkas, you’ve gotta try this one. I have no clue how they made it taste like Fruit Loops or why it’s so good, but they did and it is. Find out more here.

What are some of your favorite new discoveries from this past week?


  1. I have got to buy one of those necklaces! They’re amazing and surprisingly very affordable. Thanks for sharing it.

  2. That gold Mario star is the very definition of geek chic! I love it!
