Stock Up on Mugs with ThinkGeek

ThinkGeek Mugs

ThinkGeek is having a “Hoth Winter Sale” featuring many of their warmest, coziest items. In addition to things I’d highly recommend like a heated blanket and an electric kettle, they’ve got a great selection of mugs starting at $3.49 each. Replace your old, cracked mugs with something a bit cooler or grab something a bit more eye-catching to keep on your desk.  I’m loving the four featured above!

Winter Fashion: Tech Enabled Clothing

WinterTechFashion

Sometimes in the winter you have to leave the comfort of your home.  You have to put down the video games, the book, and your favorite tv series to brave the wilderness that’s full of wind and snow and people. (shudder.)

But if you have tech enabled clothing, you can at least still use your phone or tablet or portable game system while out in public. And look just so-darn-cute while doing it.

My clothing includes:

  • Scottevest trench coat with 18 pockets for your phone, tablet, and a bajillion other things, as well as a Personal Area Network that allows you to guide wires and earphones through your jacket.
  • Touch capacitive gloves that allow you to use electronics while keeping your hands toasty. Mine were purchased last year at Target, but you can find similar ones on Amazon.
  • Earmuffs with headphones built in to keep you dancing and gaming while outside. Mine were a gift, but you can find similar ones on Amazon.
  • Black leggings and Cole Haan booties, because dressing up a little makes me feel better about leaving the house.

What’s your go-to winter outfit? Any other tech-enabled clothing I need to check out?

These photos were taken using the #HTCOne X+ as part of their #TroopOneX campaign. The phone was gifted to me by HTC for purposes of using and reviewing. All opinions (and goofy poses) are my own!

“Baby It’s Cold Outside” Geek-ified

Mr. Geek and I decorated the tree this weekend and put on Christmas music for the first time this year. Although the music Pandora plays is nice, it’s missing the geek flair we all love with our songs. I was incredibly psyched this morning to see that Kirby Krackle and The Doubleclicks teamed up to do a Star Wars-themed cover of one of my favorite Christmas songs “Baby It’s Cold Outside.” It sounds fantastic!

This will be on repeat in between the rest of the Christmas music for sure.

What’s your favorite holiday song?

Cozy Mario Pipe Scarf

…Weird title for an absolutely delightful product.

This homemade scarf would be the perfect thing to spread your geek cred on the cold, blustery days.

Heck, I’d wear it inside while playing Super Mario Bros. Just because I could.

Dear Etsy, if anyone on your site begins to sell these, please let me know. My Christmas shopping will be done.
