Life is Changing!

After neglecting this site forever, things are changing! I am moving all this content back to! My Instagram and Youtube are both changed to Nerdmom’s Life.

I decided that while I love making some content for Youtube, I just don’t have the time to dedicate to an entirely different site. The perfect evidence is that I post to Instagram daily and Youtube some but never make it over here!

I hope those of you who have been patiently waiting will follow me back to Nerdfamily where this type of content will continue under its own category!

Make sure to see what crazy things happen in NerdMom’s Life!

A New Black Panther Trailer!

This is going to be such a great movie and I can’t wait to see it! But after seeing the trailer I have a couple of questions. I qualify this with the fact that I haven’t read much of the Black Panther comics.

1)The suit! I thought that the suit was tied to the ring and was kind of intrinsic. That is why he was Black Panther as soon as his father died and he got the ring in Civil War.
2)Is the suit not only for the king of Wakanda? It seems that other people have suits and mystic powers?

I am sure these will be answered in the first couple minutes of the movie. I am reticent to do to much research in fear of spoiling the movie. Even with these questions I am so looking forward to it coming out next year. Of course, a special treat is that Martin Freeman will be making an appearance.

What are you looking forward to most?

September Target Beauty Box

For those of you who may not know, every month Target sells a beauty box and sometimes they have more than one. This isn’t a subscription but a purchase. You have to go in every month and buy them. They usually range between $7 – $11 and go on sale near the end of the month. Frequently they sell out! For September there were 2 different boxes, Total Hydration, and Your New Basics. Let’s see what was in the boxes and if they are really worth the cost!

Total Hydration Box:

Cost: $7
Included (value):
Pretty Animalz Panda sheet mask ($3.99)
Curls Blueberry Leave-in Conditioner ($2.99)
Palmer’s Cocoa Butter Moisturizing Body Lotion (99 cents)
St. Ives Invigorating Apricot Scrub (61 cents)
Curls Unleashed Curl Defining Creme ($1.06)
Chapstick Hydration in Blood Orange ($2.99)
SheaMoisture Argan Oil & Argan Milk Shampoo and Blowout Creme (foil pack)
Total Value: $12.63


Your New Basics Box:

Cost: $7
Included and value:
Acure Ultra-Hydrating Shampoo ($1.24)
Acure Ultra-Hydrating Conditioner ($1.24)
Simple Micellar Water ($1.99)
up & up Premium Cotton Rounds (5 cents)
Covergirl Total Tease Mascara, Full-Size Product!!! ($7)
Garnier SkinActive Moisture Bomb ($1.77)
Nivea In-Shower Body Lotion ($1.08)
Sensodyne ProNamel ($3.23)

Total Value: $18.60

Final Verdict:

I feel pretty meh about the hydration box. I don’t feel like I wasted money on it but I don’t know that I got a deal either. I think the big winner was the New Basics box. I have wanted to try that mascara and the cost of that is the box. But on the whole, I do enjoy both boxes!

Have you ever gotten a Target beauty box? What is the best item you have ever received?

Iron Fist is Coming!!!

From Marvel

I am so excited that Iron First will be here next month! The new trailer looks so awesome. I think that not only is this series going to be great, but I am excited that it means we are that much closer to The Defenders.

Of course we see that Marvel is bringing in another strong female character with Colleen Wing. I have been so happy on how well balanced all the series truly have been. Another thing that brings me joy is the marshal arts angle of Iron Fist. I have always loved watching marshal arts. With the quality of the fighting in all the other Marvel series that Netflix has done, this one with be phenomenal!!!

What are you most excited about in the coming Iron Fist series?

First Spider-Man Homecoming Trailer

Yes, I was like so many other geeks who kind of groaned when I heard that they were once again going to restart the Spider-Man franchise. But that “Again?” was put away when I heard that Marvel and Kevin Feige were involved. And I got even more excited when Spider-Man made an appearance in Civil War!

So of course I was excited to see the new Spider-Man Homecoming trailer.

I think it looks pretty good. I love that Michael Keaton is The Vulture. I am not really familiar with this baddie but I think it will be awesome. I am also curious how involved Iron Man will be?

What do you think?

Dressember: Fighting Human Trafficking

Decembers 1st's dress!

Decembers 1st’s dress!

I think that we can all agree that human trafficking is horrible! It is one of those unspoken crimes against people all over the world. I know I am not alone when I say that human trafficking grieve’s my heart but I felt powerless to do anything about it. We are powerless no more! To help fight human trafficking I have decided to kick off this site by supporting Dressember.

December 2nd's dress

December 2nd’s dress

What is Dressember? It is a campaign where people like me commit to wearing a dress every day in December and people pledge money! That money goes to helping fight human trafficking by doing things like funding a rescue or helping with after care.

So I will be posting to my Instagram and Facebook what I am wearing every day in December. I will tell you where I got the dresses and any details you all might want to know. I will also post a once a week round up here. I ask that you go over to my fundraising page and consider contributing a little bit of money (or a lot a bit of money;).

Deal? Oh, be prepared to see some of the dresses many times! December is a lot of days;).

Welcome to For the Real Girl!!!


Welcome to For the Real Girl!

I am a complicated girl with a super busy lifestyle. I am a plus sized geeky girl with a million things to do and all that has to be organized. For the Real Girl is focused on 3 areas of my crazy mind: Style, Geek, and Planning!

Why is it called For the Real Girl? Because I am a real girl who is a planner, geeky, and loves style. But because I am a real girl I have to balances all these interests with the rest of my life. So I am not full glam, can’t play video games as often as I would like, and don’t have a perfect life/planner but we can try right?
