Today on the blog, I have a very special interview to share with you! There is not many things I love more than seeing women kicking ass in business. One thing I do love more than that though? Chocolate, and basically all desserts. So the fact that Sam Anderson, owner of geek-themed dessert company Cake’s Cove, has both of these things is EXACTLY why I wanted to interview her on the blog. Cakes Cove was founded by Sam in 2013, launching at Fan Expo. She now owns a storefront in Toronto, as well as ships to the U.S and Canada. If you want to hear more about Sam and Cakes Cove, keep reading! Try not to drool when you see the photos of her work, I dare you.

As you may recall, I took the Oscars 2016 best picture lineup VERY seriously. Watched all the movies, made my predictions, and treated awards night like it was my birthday and Christmas wrapped up into one. I’ve always considered myself to be a “movie person” and took great pride in that as a child. However, I have grown old (okay, I’m 20) and dependent on my sitcoms. Sitcoms are easy and I love them, but does watching the same episodes of How I Met Your Mother and The Office add anything to my life? Not so much. So when I took a quiz to see how many of the IMDB top 250 films I had seen and only scored 27, I found my next movie adventure. It won’t happen today, it won’t happen this month, it may not even happen this year, but I am going to watching the remaining 223 films on that list.
To get myself organized, I sat down with a piece of paper and wrote a complete checklist of all 250 films. Then highlighted the ones I own on DVD in pink, and the ones on Netflix in yellow. It was a long and tedious process but the list looks beautiful. It lives beside my TV now. The other great thing about this? Saving money! Focusing on watching these at home may keep me from going out all the time to see the new movies. I don’t have much else to say at this point but I will keep you updated on the process! I’ll be honest, I haven’t even started yet! I’ve been binge watching Daredevil, sue me! Damn Charlie Cox and his beautiful self.
If you are interested in following along, the entire list is here. Keep up with me and my movie-watching adventure on Twitter (@thatgeekonline).
See you next time!
My name is Katie and I am a mug addict. Seriously, I shouldn’t even be writing this post. I shouldn’t be making myself more mugs when I already have a collection of over 30. But alas, here we are. I have no self control, but at least that makes for some kick-ass DIY posts! Today I’m going to show you how I made my own DIY coffee mugs with sharpies. Super easy, super cheap, and they make great gifts! Or you can hoard them for yourself, no judgement here.

If you hadn’t already heard from my 300000 Twitter posts, I spent the past weekend at Toronto ComiCon 2016. It was such an incredible event, and you can hear all about what I did/saw/bought in this video. Combining geek culture and makeup has always been one of my biggest passions with this blog, so I was so excited when Daniella Pluchino (the celebrity makeup artist for Toronto ComiCon 2016), agreed to answer some questions for the blog. She is a total sweetheart, so please go show her some support and check out her website! If you want to hear about Daniella’s career in makeup artistry and some of her tips, keep reading!
