Geek on the High Street is going International!

It’s the 22nd December, the 12 days of Geeking By was supposed to end two days ago and there’s only been 4 days not 12. Yeah.. to say things didn’t go to plan is a total understatement. I am upset to have not been able to deliver what I promised, however, as my wonderful friends have reminded me on Twitter I do need to be kinder to myself and put my health first. I’m really sick at the moment; on top of my normal health conditions I have a chest infection which I’ve had for months. I didn’t realise how serious it was until IRead More →

15 Adorable Geeky Plushies on Etsy!

Each tag and challenge can be used as a blog prompt or alternatively in another format of your choosing whether that be on social media, in aRead More →

The Ultimate Gift Guide for Pagans

Hello and welcome to the Ultimate Gift Guide for Pagans and the second day of the Geeking By 12 Days of Christmas! Spinning out from my Ultimate Gift Guides for Geeks are two new guides this year, this one for Pagans, and another one coming soon for Spoonies (aka people with chronic illnesses). I’m a Pagan and have been since I was about 16 so as with the gift guide for geeks this one has sprung from my own experiences explaining my beliefs to others. I took part in a religions seminar when I was in college and remember vividly being questioned by a baffledRead More →
