Geek on the High Street - Harry Potter Fashion

As my instagram followers know I’ve been obsessed with the new Hogwarts Mystery game so when I started seeing Harry Potter bits while searching for Disney last month I knew I’d found this month’s Geek on the High Street theme! Unsurprisingly since it’s a British based Fandom it’s pretty much everywhere these days and as we get closer to the next Fantastic Beast film more and more things are popping up in the shops. So here’s some of my favourite picks! Don’t forget to check out the Harry Potter section of the Geek on the High Street pinterest board to see the rest of theRead More →

This week’s prompt was for retro video games, but sadly, I didn’t really play video games back when they could be considered retro. So I’ve gone back a few years and picked one I could answer; mothers! This one still took a while for me to get into, and I really need to read/watch more stuff that has actual mothers in it. I went through a mental list of most recent books read and every time it was ‘mother dead/MIA’. I also didn’t want to fall back on old favourites that I’ve mentioned before in other ways (Leia, Padme from Star Wars for example).  Read More →

The Geeky Girl Tag

I love surveys, memes, challenges – anything that asks me to answer things that I haven’t thought up myself. I’ll often repost those ‘ask me…’ graphics on twitter and instagram to see what people come up with. So when I saw this geeky girl tag answered by Kitten at The Howling Wolfheart I had to jump in! The tag is originally by Cassie at ZombieGoddess Beauty and she has also done a Gamer Tag too! 1. What is your must-have tech gadget? Once upon a time I would have said it was my PC, however, after a year of having my tablet it wins thisRead More →

5 Fandom Friday - geeky coffee mugs

This weeks prompt is a special one to celebrate the birthday of one of the 5 Fandom Friday creators, Megan at The Nerdy Girlie. Happy birthday Megan! Unfortunately, I had to tweak the prompt a bit as I don’t visit coffee shops much. I wanted to keep with the coffee theme to honour Megan so I’m sharing my favourite geeky coffee mugs! Please note – this post contains affiliate links.   Troll Dress Up Mug I spotted this in a store last year and geeked out about it; Chris was not impressed. I loved trolls when I was a kid and the idea of beingRead More →

Small business and blogger etsy stores

I took a break last weekend as I was still polishing off the new blog theme and features, so this week I wanted to make a special Sharing Saturday. So I decided to get personal. As a part of Holiday Wishes I had offered to fulfil some wishes by promoting their etsy stores. I absolutely love etsy, there is always something for everyone and being an oddball geek I don’t tend to find ‘my style’ in main shops, so etsy is wonderful for finding things that are really me. I also admire people who are able to create, and put their work out there forRead More →
