Friday Favorites // 030 ::

  1. Inner Decay has amazing pins and patches. I want one of everything. I especially love the “Decline and Fall” pin (because nerd), and am also really digging “RIP Feelings.”
  2. Growing up, I was Doc Martens obsessed, but was never actually able to afford a pair. While I love the classic black (and velvet, forever), this burgundy leather pair makes my eyes well. I might actually need these. Because let’s be honest, most of the things I feature in Friday Favorites are not things I really need.
  3. I finally finally bought the Pearl massage bar from LUSH. I tried it in person at the store in Portland and was immediately smitten. Argan oil is my favorite beauty ingredient,  and the rose fragrance of this bar is soft and feminine. It’s perfect for an occasional indulgence.
  4. I have not bothered to look for any new Sailor Moon merchandise since Crystal was originally released. Because, well. You know. That road is dangerous. That being said, these socks are everything. Everything. Yes I would wear them with burgundy Doc Martens. There is absolutely no shame in this magical girl heart of mine.
  5. This beautiful crescent moon cuff from Moorea Seal features snowflake obsidian, which has always been on of my favorites.
  6. This weekender bag has my name written all over it. Unfortunately, I do not travel enough to justify that sort of cost. It’s still lovely, though, and a great size!
  7. These limited edition ceramic mugs are a collaboration between artist Bill Crisafi and Sisters of the Black Moon.

If you follow me on various social media outlets (by which I mean pinterest and twitter), you have noticed that I am not particularly shy about my geekiness. I’ve always been “geeky” about many different things, spanning various genres, but I don’t talk much about these things on the blog. By not sharing my geekier side here, I’m leaving out a large part of who I am.  I mean, hell, I lived in a science fiction and fantasy themed dorm suite in college. Our official title was “Science Fiction, Fantasy and Horror in Literature and in Media Today,” but it was basically known as Nerd Kingdom. Because come on.

Hello. My name is Naomi, and I am a nerd. I am also a woman, and a well-rounded and functioning member of society. I can dress on-trend, I can roast a chicken, I can DIY with the best of them, and I can play Skyrim while painting my nails.

This is not at all big “reveal” to anyone who knows me closely enough. My co-workers will probably find it surprising, as will readers who are new to this blog. Hi! And welcome! This is all basically a long-winded way to introduce a new category under which I will occasionally write something about Art History or video games or anime or Star Trek. I’m also excited to write about where my interests happen to crossover, because I’m not the only one

Timothy and his friends attended the opening weekend of King Richard’s Faire on Saturday, and it looks like we’ll all be attending later on in the season. We’ve decided that costumes are mandatory. I wasn’t originally very excited about dressing up, but then I found this dress.


From Dark Knight Armoury

It has a hood. Sold.



With the addition of a belt pouch and bottle (after repainting the snaps in silver), I’m pretty much made. I should be able to easily find a leather belt at Goodwill that I can alter.


I also really like this sterling silver & iolite antler pendant by Black Water Siren, but I’m tempted to save and buy something similar at the Faire to support a semi-local artisan.

It’s been ages since I’ve worked on any sort of costuming. I’m really hoping we’ll be able to go, this year. Have you ever dressed up for an event or convention? Maybe I can make this work for Halloween, as well.

Twin Peaks brooch by Kate Rowland

And, since it’s Valentine’s Day, I thought I’d share one of my favorite pink things with you.

I hope you’re having a lovely, loving day. Treat yourself to a stack of donuts. ♥

(The owls are not what they seem.)

I’d like to make “mail day” a new feature. Want to exchange slow-letters? Leave me a comment so we can get in touch!
