Favourite Geeky Coffee Mugs

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!

Trolls dress up mug

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 being able to play dress up on my mug? Awesome. ((Image Credits – Amazon.co.uk))






R2-D2 Mug

There are loads of Star Wars themed mugs around, including some cute Funko Pop ones, so I had a hunt and my personal choice is this R2-D2 mug. I love that it is the shape of the droid and that his domed top covers the mug. I’m really accident prone so having a top on my mug is probably a good safety feature 😉 ((Image Credit – Pricerighthome))








Marauders map mug

Marauder’s Map Mug

Colour changing mugs are becoming a thing, and Morphing Mugs has a whole range of them. It’s this Marauder’s Map mug though that remains my favourite because of how the map itself works. The map appears blank until it’s activated and the mug mimics that feature with the temperature change. ((Image Credits – Amazon.co.uk))






naughty nessies mug


Naughty Nessies Mug

I have been in love with the Naughty Nessies range since I found it, and this is my daily go to mug. I love how quirky and cute it is, and reading the ‘Nessies’ always makes me smile. ((Image Credits – Amazon.co.uk))





Little Miss Blogger mug


 Little Miss Blogger

Truffle Shuffle have so many awesome geeky, retro and 80s mugs that it was becoming seriously impossible to pick just one – and then I spotted this Little Miss Blogger mug! Of course it had to go in this list! ((Image Credits – Truffle Shuffle.co.uk))

18 Food & Drink Alternative Advent Calendars for 2016

Sharing Saturday: Alternate Advent Calendars - Food & Drink


I love advent calendars, however, opening little doors just for a tiny bit of chocolate isn’t as appealing as it once was. I’ve been doing online advent calendars (I’ll introduce you to some at the beginning of December when they open!) for several years now, and last year I came across beauty advent calendars! This year I kept an eye out, found several different beauty ones as well as some other alternative advent calendars. So over the next few weeks I’m going to be posting the best ones I can find, starting this week with food and drink calendars!
