Treat Yo Self – March Indie Shopping

It’s time for another round of Treat Yo Self! Since we got our tax return at the beginning of this month, I’m having to REALLY hold back with my indie shopping. I want all the things! Full disclosure: there are some affiliate links below. Purchasing through those links earns me a small commission, which pays for costs here on the blog. Also – that fabulous art in the header is courtesy of the one and only Liana Kangas – check out her awesome art!

I’ve already made one indie order and received it:

New shirts from Jordandene! I’m sure many of you know and love Jordandene’s fantastic line of pop-culture inspired shirts, and I’ve been lusting after them for ages. And now, I finally have some! I snagged myself two new tees – “I Solemnly Swear I Am Up To No Good” and “I Know My Value”.

I absolutely love these shirts. They are so comfortable and soft. Plus I love that they are a more subtle nod to fandoms. Definitely my two new favorite things to wear!

My second purchase this month is a new, quarterly subscription box! It’s called The Bee Box, and it’s aim is to provide a little art and beauty to your life! Supporting other artists, plus cute stuff at my doorstep?! I’M IN!

Each box contains artwork from Kirsten Winkelbauer of Winklebee Illustration. I found her on Instagram recently and adore her work. When I saw that she was launching a new subscription box that would feature art from her, along with other cute things, I knew I had to have it. I signed up for a full year, which averages to $15 a quarter. I love that it’s so affordable! The first box will ship out in June, so there is still plenty of time to sign up. I can’t wait to see what’s in the first one!

And lastly, I’ve been lusting after earrings again this month. I did end up ordering a pair from Favoring Brave last month, and I LOVE them! Here are some pairs I’ve been eyeing for March.


Gold Triforce Acrylic Small Lasercut Geek Earrings, Lightweight Zelda Cosplay Accessory, Link To The Past Comic Con GeekStar Jewelry

Triforce Earrings from Geek Star Costuming! I also somehow don’t own any Zelda themed jewelry, and that’s just not acceptable. I love how shiny these acrylic earrings are!

Supernatural Earring, Supernatural Jewelry, Supernatural, Dean Winchester, Sam Winchester, Fandom Earrings,Geek Earrings,Supernatural fan

I freaking LOVE these Supernatural knife earrings from Pimp Your Geek! Definitely need them in my life.


Midnight Stud Druzy Earrings

These stud earrings from Live Love Boutique are simple but completely gorgeous. I own mostly dangle earrings, so I’d like to add a few new studs to my collection. (Heh. Mind in gutter.)

I’ve actually done a fair amount of real world shopping this month too. (Thanks tax return!) I splurged on some new running sneakers which I completely adore. I say splurged, but there were actually needed. My old pair were about five years old and the sole was detaching from the right shoe. I also got some new jeans and the cutest new dresses which were a total unnecessary splurge that I absolutely don’t regret. TREAT YO SELF!

What are you going to treat yo self to this month?


  • LOVE Jordandene shirts! And those stud earrings are GORGEOUS.

    • Kay

      That shop has SO MANY VARIETIES too. Ugh, so lovely. And I so adore my shirts from Jordandene!

  • gamerwife

    I love the idea of the Bee Box and I also love that it’s quarterly. Definitely much easier on the ol’ pocket book. I also just bought my first Jordandene shirt with some leftover birthday money. I can’t wait for it to arrive!

    • Kay

      I really wish there were more quarterly sub boxes! Not only is it easier financially, but in truth, I really DON’T need more stuff. A box of stuff every single month really adds so many more knick knacks to my already crowded apartment!

  • That Bee Box is adorable xoxo

    • Kay

      RIght?! I can’t wait for the first one!

  • B.

    I saw Jordan at C2E2 and picked up her Kylo tank! Plus I have her Peggy and Steve tanks!

    • Kay

      Ah, so awesome! I feel a bit odd since I bought the Peggy shirt despite the fact that I haven’t watched Agent Carter yet, but I just LOVE the quote. πŸ™‚

  • I need that Solemnly Swear shirt! I keep seeing her shirts on Instagram and want them so badly! That sub box looks wonderful!

    • Kay

      They are SO soft and wonderful! I adore the shirts! Definitely recommend snagging one at some point! πŸ™‚

  • I have those same earrings from Live Love Boutique!!! Hahah they somehow manage to match with EVERYTHING. I think I need another pair πŸ™‚

    • Kay

      Ha, awesome!! I think I remember you blogging about them, but I didn’t realize they were from that exact shop! I love them. And want so many pairs!

  • Well, I now want everything from your list!
    Espeically the knives and T shirts πŸ™‚

    • Kay

      Glad you enjoyed! I may have to get those earrings…they are so much fun!

  • Emma

    The Bee Box is a great idea – I wish more artist’s would jump on that bandwagon!

    • Kay

      Right? It’s such a great idea. But I do imagine it has a tremendous amount of work attached to it. I’m so excited to see what’s in the first box!

  • Love the Supernatural Knife earrings and really need to get one of Jordandene’s Kylo Ren shirts!!

    • Kay

      I can’t recommend the shirts enough…so soft and comfortable!

  • Hey hey, I’m always looking to add new studs to my collection😜 Seriously though, super cute earrings! And I’m so in love with my JordandenΓ© shirts too! They’re like, pajama top soft! So perfect<3

    • Kay

      Bahaha. I swear, my brain is thirteen sometimes. πŸ˜€ Couldn’t agree more about Jordandene shirts!

  • I totally got myself a TARDIS shirt that has been haunting me on FB.

    • Kay

      Ha, nice!! Good for you! πŸ˜€
