It’s Halloween! I’m not really celebrating it this year, except for attempting a Hipster Belle outfit today (and not even a very good Hipster Belle), but that doesn’t really count, does it?

Anyway, to celebrate I’m sharing my favourite Halloween items. Enjoy!

What are you doing this year Halloween?

This is so adorable! I love my collection of geek jewellery and couldn’t help but order this one for myself.

It’s available from etsy store Land of Rapture (I’ve previously blogged about their Assassin’s Creed necklace) for only £9.78! If you’ve never bought anything from Etsy before, they currently are offering £5 off your first Etsy purchase if you sign up now.

You can even customise your necklace and choose exactly which of the following you want:

I’ve chosen the Green Mushroom, the Flower and the Star! I can’t wait till it gets delivered.

There’s a new episode of Doctor Who tonight! I’m so looking forward to it; I loved the dynamic between the Doctor and Clara in the Christmas episode and I really want to see how they handle it further. Plus there’s the whole “what is Clara/Oswin exactly?”, why does she have multiple lives?

So to celebrate the return of the Doctor to our screens I thought I’d share with you guys some cool Doctor Who stuff I found online:

Tardis Ring – $12.50

Doctor-Who-Ring

Wibbly Wobbly Timey Wimey – $19.95

For a while now I’ve had an idea that seems so obvious to me, I couldn’t understand why nobody had done it before. I always have my phone in my bag and so often miss phone calls or texts, because I don’t hear it go off. But what if I could wear a pretty bracelet that could notify me of all that?

I know there have been lately a lot of smart watches, but I honestly think those do too much. I’ve already got a smart phone I’ve invested in; the device on my wrist should simply notify me to check that phone. My own initial idea is a simple leather cuff that vibrates when your phone goes off, but it’s one of those projects that I wasn’t really sure where to start to kick it all off.

Well, it turns out I’m not the only one with that idea. There’s currently a Kickstarter project for just that: the EMBRACE+. It’s a bracelet that connects to your smartphone and notifies you by flashing different colors for different apps and contacts.

The bracelet isn’t exactly as I envisioned it, but it’s definitely the type of bracelet I’m looking for, so I’ve backed the project. They’re currently only at 13% of their target though, so I’m curious to see if they manage to fund it completely. Here’s their Kickstarter video:

What do you think of the smart bracelet idea? Do you think it could work?

Sometimes you have days where you just want to go:

AARGHHH!

For those days we have this lovely necklace from Tatty Devine (£35):

For those days where you want to go “Uurghhh” we have this necklace (£35):

And finally for those days where we just want to go “Grrrr” we have this one (£21):

Now all I need is a “Grr. Argh.” necklace…

I love geeky jewellery. I’ve been slowly building my collection of geeky yet pretty necklaces, but still don’t own any geeky rings or earrings (unless you count an ankh as geeky, which in this case it sort of might be since it comes from my teen obsession with Egyptian mythology and history).

Anyways, this Kickstarter project looks great and shall hopefully find a place in my geeky jewellery collection: Dice Rings! They’re spinner rings where an outer smaller ring spins in a grooved inner ring. I’ve seen these before but never with dice featured on them. So handy!

They are several type of pledges:

  • $5 Immortal Word Smith: a personal quote on their website
  • $15 Lone Adventurer: Any 1 ring, any size or available color.
  • $40 Gambler: 3 rings (rCards, r%, 2r6),  any size or available color.
  • $42 Gamer Lite: Your pick of any 3 rings, any size or available color.
  • $70 Multiclasser: Your pick of any 5 rings, any size or available color.
  • $90 Classic Player: 7 rings (r4, r6, r8, r10, r12, r20 and r%), any size or available color.
  • $130 Game Master: Your pick of any 10 rings, any size or available color.
  • $1000 Hands of Royalty: You will be their hand model. You’ll get every type of ring, but you’ll need to take photos.
  • $5000 Battle-Hardened Comrade: Come and hang out with the founders for an entire weekend.
For shipping outside of US and Canada, there’s a $10 shipping fee. I’m very tempted to do the Gamer Lite pledge. The rings look great and so geeky! I only can’t decide which rings to go for…

What do you think of the Dice Rings? Cool or too geeky?

Wow, this etsy store has tons of cute geeky necklaces and rings! LicketyCut designs an awesome range of laser cut acrylic jewellery, referencing old Nintendo games to newer games, like Portal and Mass Effect. They do tons of different designs and I’ll only be featuring my favourites here, so make sure to check out the actual store!

Retro Batman Symbol Pendants $20 (a single one is $12)

Classic NES Controller $25

Portal’s The Cake Is A Lie $10

Mass Effect Paragon and Renegade Pendants $20 (single one is $12)

Pokemon Necklace $25

Cute, right? They’ve got a lot more designs in their store, including necklaces for DragonAge, Legend of Zelda, World of Warcraft, and more.

I love the Portal necklace I got for my birthday (this one), but you can never have too many geeky necklaces. And this one is super pretty!

The Companion Cube pendant is available in the etsy store The 17th Bit for $39. Cute, right? The store has a couple other Portal inspired jewellery too:

Aperture Science pendant – $39

Companion Cube ring – $49

I need more geek jewellery! I realized that even though I often blog about these awesome geeky necklaces and earrings, I never actually end up getting them. That needs to change!

Here are 5 awesome necklaces I’ve come across, now I need to decide which of these to get (well, which of these to get first, eventually I hope I can just get all of them). Plus it’s my birthday soon…

1. HTML Glass Pendant – $23 on etsy

2. Portal Necklace – $16 on etsy

3. Pacman Ghost Necklace – $18 on etsy

4. BSG Pilot Wings – $32 on Her Universe

5. Caffeine Molecule Necklace – $85 on ThinkGeek

So which one of these should I get? I think my favourite one is the Portal necklace, although the html one comes closely behind that. I also really like the caffeine molecule, but I think there should be cheaper options out there.

Which one is your favourite?

I need more geeky necklaces! Even though I often blog about these amazing geeky jewelry, I don’t splurge enough and buy them for myself. This week I stumbled on some awesome necklaces for book geeks!

Etsy store Bookish Charms makes jewelry and accessories for the bookish, with necklaces featuring quotes from books (although she has now also expanded to TV show quotes). Here are my favourites:

Awesome, right? My favourites are the “Wibbly wobbly, timey wimey” one and the “Winter is Coming” one. Depending on the quote, the necklaces range from $14.50 to $18.50. Take a look at the Bookish Charms Etsy page for more items.
