Farewell to The Beautiful Geek

If you’re reading this, it means that I have officially stopped posting to The Beautiful Geek. As of now, the domain name is no longer mine and the web address is soon to be thebeautygeek.wordpress.com again, if it isn’t already by the time you’re viewing this message.

This farewell isn’t all sad though, because I’m also here to announce that I am continuing my blogging adventures on my new site, Live Love Sunshine. I can now also be found under a variation of some kind of Live Love Sunshine (livelovesunshine, live.love.sunshine, etc.) on social media. If you’re following me on Pinterest or Instagram, don’t worry – nothing is going away there, just more posts, more fun, all under a new name (think “Same great product, brand new packaging!”). I have also created a new Facebook Page for my new blog, which you can also follow here.

In my first post is a full explanation of why I made the decision to leave The Beautiful Geek behind.

Please feel free to hop on over and hit the follow button in the sidebar for me! I will be continuing to post about life, beauty, geeky stuff and more.

until we meet again, this is Katie of The Beautiful Geek, signing off. ❤


Liebster Award Nomination – 2015

Hi there my geeks! So here’s an impromptu post this Friday, Thursday (oops, it’s a “Friday” for me, I have tomorrow off 🙂 )  thanks to the lovely Lady Sue over at Lightsabers and Lipsticks. I’m always excited to check out some new blogs. 🙂 So let’s get things started with the rules, shall we?


  1. Link back to the person that nominated you
  2. Answer the questions asked by the nominator
  3. Nominate 11 other bloggers with less than 200 followers
  4. Create 11 questions for your nominees
  5. Notify all nominees on their blogs and/or social media

Lady Sue’s Questions:

1. What are two makeup products you can’t live without? 

Surprisingly enough, that’s not a hard one. It’d definitely be eyeliner and mascara. I feel naked without them! 

2. If you had to eat one thing for the rest of your life, what would it be? 

Now THIS is hard…I love food… but if it boiled down to it, I’d probably have to go with burgers (I’m a sucker for a good juicy cheese burger) 

3. If you could switch places with any character in a book or movie, who would it be? Why? 

I’d have to say Ginny Weasley, simply because she was always my favorite, and I always admired how strong and independent she was.

4. What’s your favorite drink at Starbucks? 

Ok, confession time…I’ve actually never set foot in a Starbucks in my life XD 

5. What is your favorite guilty pleasure tv show? 

My Little Pony….. JUST KIDDING. Honestly I can’t say I have any “guilty pleasure” shows, but I can say that some of my favorites are Law and Order SVU, Supernatural, and Friends

6. If you could drop everything and travel somewhere right now, where would it be? 

Does Hogwarts count? 

7. What would make your perfect pizza? 

Thin and crispy crust, extra sauce, loads of cheese, onions, pepperoni, tomatoes, ham, spinach…oh, and more cheese

8. What fictional character do you want to marry or be best friends with? 

um….I would die if I could marry Dean Winchester… XD

9. Do you have any pets? If not do you want any? 

I actually have 3. Two dogs (Harli and Buddy) and a cat (Pascal) 

10. If you could have one super power what would it be? 

Ohh… tough one. I’d want the power to make portals through space (you could say I love thinking with Portals 😉  ) 

11. What Disney character do you most relate to? 

Definitely Rapunzel. I spent most of my childhood home-schooled, away from other people 90% of the time. My pets were my closest friends, and eventually I finally got out and got to experience the world for myself.

6. What was the first Disney movie you remember ever seeing?

One Lovely Blog Award: Thank You!

One Lovely Blog AwardI am honored and very happy to be nominated by All Things Girl Related for the One Lovely Blog Award. It’s awesome to think that I only started this about two months ago and I was actually nominated for an award…not a huge thing, I know, but I’m still ecstatic ^_^. So, a HUGE thank you to Cas!


Ok so there are five guidelines for accepting this award:

Sort of like a chain letter

1. Link back to the blogger who nominated you.
2. Paste the award image on your blog, anywhere.
3. Tell them seven facts about yourself.
4. Nominate up to 15 other bloggers for this award.
5. Contact the bloggers that you have chosen to let them know that they have been nominated.

To start then 7 facts:

1) I plan on one day owning my own shop where I sell my hand made soaps, candles, and cosmetics(still have to learn to make the cosmetics though hehe).
2) I love love love the Halo games & have this unexplained grudge for those who play Call of Duty.
3) I have a wonderful 3 year old boxer named Harli. She’s kinda runty and has an underbite, but she can always make me feel better no matter what, and I wouldn’t have her any other way.
4) I have a tendency to have strong crushes on characters from my favorite TV shows(not such a good thing when you have a boyfriend… v.v)
5) I love playing piano and taught myself to play and read music(though I’m not very good at playing, and I don’t like reading music). I have figured out how to play a few of the songs from Zelda: Ocarina of Time by ear.
6) I collect snowglobes, specifically ones that mean something to me(and the ones I have so far are all Disney)
7) I met my best friend in kindergarden in Brockton, Mass. on meet the teacher day. We met because I wanted to go to school to have friends. We’ve been besties ever since, even after we both moved to Florida and live far away from one another.
