A Change In Name

As you can see, the blog has gone through a pretty massive change. What was once Pretty, Nerdy Girl is now With Love, Joey. After heavy consideration and almost 15 years with my beloved username/domain name, I’ve decided that PNG just didn’t represent me anymore and I needed to finally take the plunge away from that. So what will this mean for the content? Honestly, not much. I still love playing video games. I still love making crafts. I still love sharing my outfits. But I  ...

In Control

Today is the official last day with grown out roots and faded red ends. It’ll be a little weird for the next few posts because I took advantage of the great weather to pre-shoot a few outfits, but I find this outfit way too fitting for a day like today. Because today I’m taking  ...

Go(l)bat, Go!

I’ve been watching a ton of Safiya Nygaard on YouTube lately, and her baty witch aesthetic has had me missing having a mostly black wardrobe. I mean, for years my laundry day consisted of 3 loads of black and 1 load of other and I had to invest in special detergent just for darks/blacks  ...
