YouTube Fantasy Dinner Party

It’s been quite sometime since I’ve given thought to who I would invite to dinner. Ever since the summer, the second half of the year blurred into December. Where did 2016 go?! With the one year anniversary of my establishment of The Lil House of the Nerdy, I thought it was high time to think about who I would ask Santa to invite to my house for a girls’ night in1!

Decorating the Boss Level Master Suite

I received a surprisingly positive response to my big reveal about my design scheme for my master bedroom: The Boss Level. What surprised me was that no one tried talking me out of doing a classy, wrestling-themed bedroom. I showcased the art of Rob Schamberger, which demonstrated that wrestling can be artistic, and it can be displayed without making a room look like it belongs to a seventh grader. Questions started rolling in about providing more concrete designs with the items I do have, so today I’ll focus on how I am starting to stage my room.

Wrestling with Interior Design Inspiration

December 11, will mark the one year anniversary of my biggest adult move to date: purchasing my first house. So much has happened in the last year, especially when it comes to making my first house truly feel like my first home. Some rooms organically came together instantly, but unfortunately others have maintained stark walls. Of all the rooms in my house, I have spent the greater part of a year unable to decide what to do about the Boss Level of the Little House of the Nerdy: The Master Suite. I’ve wrestled with Pinterest in a no-holds barred, fight forever matchup since I moved in last year. I grappled with more design schemes than I cared to count, and then it hit me… like a steel chair to the back of the head…

Star Trek x MAC Makeup Launch Experience

In the spring, Star Trek announced the launch of the commemorative edition makeup line with MAC Cosmetics in honor of its fiftieth anniversary for release during San Diego Comic Con. Since then, I have patiently awaited its arrival in stores like a child waiting for Santa Claus on Christmas Eve. I reeled at the photos from SDCC in July, and last month, I finally made it to the theater to see the third installment, Star Trek Beyond. A friend recommended this event at a mall across town, but I gladly made the trek –if you will– in the name of nerdy fashion!

Virtual Coffee Date at Luke’s Diner

Ah, Adulting. That quintessential requirement that you buck up and do you job, and not do frivolous, fun things like line up in the dark outside a coffee shop for a free 12-ounce coffee for several hours in honor of the original premiere date. I was at work…
