New Job Sushi & Kirin Beers

Posted on and Tagged , Making Sushi at home with Kirin Beer inspired recipe | Genpink

I participated in an Influencer Activation on behalf of Millennial Central for Kirin. I received product samples to facilitate my review as well as a promotional item to thank me for my participation. My college roomies and I started a tradition the Summer after we graduated that we lovingly called “New Job Sushi.” It began when the first of us to get a “real” job started her first day. The… Read more




{fashion} Colorful Spring Scarves

Posted on Fashion: Colorful Spring Scarves | Genpink

I received a beautiful Spring scarf in last month’s PopSugar Must Have box* that I’ve been wearing non-stop. This made me realize, although I have quite the selection of warm scarves, but I don’t have many light-weight Spring scarves. And so, here’s my virtual wishlist (all of these are under $60).   Floral Scarves: 1. Flower Fields – Forever 21 // 2. Aunt B. Floral Infinity Scarf – ShopLulu // 3.… Read more




Gen Y Gals Spring Break Attire from Peter Som & Kohls

Posted on and Tagged , #PeterSomForKohls | Genpink

I participated in a campaign for Millenial Central Consulting on behalf of Kohl’s. I received a gift card as a thank you for participating. We have officially hit patio weather in Texas! For those of us who are post-college we don’t necessarily get a “Spring Break” in the typical sense of the word. But that doesn’t mean that you can’t take a couple days off work, or even just a… Read more




Day-Date Idea: Picnic & Prosecco

Posted on and Tagged , Day-Date Idea: Picnic & Prosecco | Genpink

This is a sponsored post written by me on behalf of La Marca Prosecco.  It is intended for an audience over 21 years of age. I’m always excited for a new month to start. It’s a great opportunity to reflect on the past month. I am excited for Spring, new opportunities and brighter colors. However, I do feel like 2014 has flown by. I mean, really how is it April… Read more




Geek Girl Office :: Poppin

Posted on Pink & White Geek Girl Office Supplies \ Genpink

I have loved office supplies for as long as I can remember. I was just as content visiting The Container Store as a kid as some of my friends were going to Toys ‘R Us. Today while I was checking my emails, I got a new product alert from one of my favorite office supply sites. Yes, that’s how nerdy I am, I have a favorite office supply source! If… Read more




Fashion: Pink & Polka Dots under $50

Posted on and Tagged OOTD: Pink + Polka Dots | Genpink

April Showers came a bit early to Texas. I am not a rain fan, but I do have two fab rain trench coats. Yesterday I opted for the pink trench paired with one of my fashion staples – polka dots! I don’t think “polka dots” will appear on any “Trends for 2014″ lists, but I don’t want to live in a world were polka dots aren’t “in”. Here’s a quick… Read more




Girls Who Wear Glasses

Posted on Nearly Neutral Fashion Statement with bebe glasses from VSP Direct

This is a sponsored post written by me on behalf of VSP Direct. I remember when I first found out I needed to wear glasses. I was 12, and I was NOT happy about it. Twenty years* later, I now find it ironic that the main reason I didn’t want to wear glasses was because “only nerds wear glasses”. These days I wear my nerd badge AND my glasses with… Read more




5 Gadgets in my Geek Girl Bedtime Routine

Posted on and Tagged 5 Gadgets in my Geek Girl Bedtime Routine - GenPink

This is a sponsored post written by me on behalf of Waterpik. I had a call this week with the team at Trymbl (who just launched the first “try before you buy” beauty shopping experience). The purpose of the call was to chat about beauty products, but they were also intrigued to find out that I call myself a “professional geek girl.” I found that quite amusing as it’s currently the… Read more




Shop for a Cause with Macy’s Heart of Haiti line

Posted on Shop for a Cause with Macy's Heart of Haiti line | Genpink

When we first started the home buying process I knew I wanted to write several home decor, remodeling and other house related posts. I take great pride in how I’ve styled my home. When we have new visitors, I love walking them through and telling them the stories behind the multitudes of photos and other items sitting around. Since we registered at Macy’s, several of the items in our home… Read more
