Data nerds of the world, unite!

Those who know me know that deep down, I am a data nerd. And those who listen to the Spawned podcast know that it’s not so deep down, since I’m always researching studies and quoting statistics and shooting down lame studies about why parents suck/fail/are ruining their children for life, that do not prove causation in the least. So wasn’t I delighted when eagle-eyed listener, tech mom, and presumably fellow data nerd Shannon Austin pinged me about this awesome Data Nerd t-shirt promoted by New Relic. Good news: They’re free! Meh news: You pretty much need to be a CTO, app developer or systems...

Wear your heart emoji on your feet

I’m officially an emoji convert which means I text them, I tweet them (gasp!), and soon thanks to these awesome custom emoji sneakers, I might even be wearing them on my feet. Yes, I’ve added these to my wish list and it’s like I don’t even know who I am anymore, but honestly, I really like them! Michael over at Daily Apparel Customs on Etsy makes each pair by hand, cutting the fabric and applying it very carefully and securely to the signature Nike swoosh.  Related: The coolest emoji gifts If not for you, I know many a tween or teen who would...

Training for a marathon? Why yes. On Netflix.

I will never have the 26. 2 sticker on my car, because let’s be honest here, the only marathon I’ll ever be training for is right on my television. That is why I need this hilarious shirt in my life. I always find myself cracking up at pretty much everything at Look Human. Just ask Liz, who had to endure my loud cackles yesterday as I searched through their site. This one is particularly awesome though, given my penchant for binge watching, and really, I’m pretty sure I’m not alone in that endeavor. Hey, it’s hard work staying up...

The Instagram fashion hashtag t-shirt. Is it ironic? Or a convenient cheat sheet.

We all know by now that a long list of hashtagged words and acronyms means only one thing: Please look at my Instagram photos. Hey, no judgments. We do it too. So how could we not #LOL #LMAO #smile at this Instagram fashion hashtag tee? Or as they call it, #tshirt. Made by Temasek Clothing, the unisex adult tees are the perfect way to share your #lookoftheday. Or, maybe just give you an opportunity to feel superior to family members and strangers in the coffee shop who say, “hey, what’s your shirt mean?’   We’re only sad there aren’t more designs available....

Society6 leggings: Be still my stylish geeky heart.

If you’ve ever been to Society6, then you know it’s a veritable wormhole of super cool art work from artists from all around the world that they whip into really cool gifts, from fun t-shirts to awesome smart phone cases, many of which we’ve featured here. But now they’ve launched leggings and I’m kind of freaking out, to put it lightly. I admit I’m jumping a bit on the bandwagon with this funky leggings trend I’m seeing all over the place, but hey, considering my spring uniform is generally leggings and a tunic or flowy top, adding some extra...

The coolest geeky jewelry for Mother’s Day: 6 ideas for any tech-loving mom

This might be shocking to hear, but some moms just don’t love sentimental jewelry. Insert audible gasp here! I’m actually one of them — or at least the more traditional stuff isn’t quite my speed — and that’s why it makes me so happy when I can find cool geeky jewelry for Mother’s Day that’s cool and stylish and something I’d absolutely wear myself. Actually, I do wear one of these myself. (Hopefully more after May 10, cough cough). Anyway, if you’re shopping for a mom like me (or yourself, hello kindred spirit), I’ve found some extra special geeky jewelry for Mother’s...

Designing and printing your own custom 3D jewelry. Without buying a 3D printer.

Just in time for Mother’s Day, I was absolutely thrilled to discover Zazzy, a new platform that allows you to design 3D jewelry, only they take out all the time-consuming stuff…like downloading sometimes complicated software, figuring out how to use it, and then, you know, actually finding a way to print it. Right now there are basic designs like charms, personalized necklaces, cufflinks and pins; and they’re printed not just in that kind of resin-y plastic, but in metals too, like gold-plated or matte black steel. I especially love the origami necklaces  and a section of 8 bit jewelry, all with...

A USB necklace that doesn’t actually do anything but look fabulous.

It used to be that cool geeky jewelry was pretty hard to find, but now, there are so many options that I’m having a hard time holding onto our credit cards, which is exactly the case with this fun USB necklace that I think will make a tech-savvy mom very happy this Mother’s Day. Hint hint.  I fell in love with Monserat De Lucca when I discovered their sign language alphabet necklaces, and this USB necklace is no exception. And not just because it looks like the Cool Mom Tech logo. Well, okay, maybe, but really, it’s such a clever twist on the typical geeky pendant...

Finding cool geeky jewelry used to be such a rarity for me, but these days, there are so many fun, affordable options (whoo!), like these few I discovered while perusing one of my favorite online shops, ModCloth. Plus they’re all under $15, so they make a great little treat for yourself, or a pick-me-up for your favorite geeky gal.
