So here goes! Day one of my month of #IndieLove and today I’m shouting about an awesome stylishly nerdy brand from Galicia in Spain. But don’t worry, this one-woman store ships worldwide and is stocked in some super cool boutiques including The Family Store in Brighton, which you must check out too! And indie shop, selling indie brands, it’s perfect. Anyway, to the point of Day 1, introducing, if you don’t know them already, La Barbuda!
Read on for a very special discount code for this wonderful shop, time to jazz up your wardrobe with some awesomeness…
I’ve been keeping my eye out for Gudetama merch in the UK ever since I saw the announcement of his creation by Sanrio sometime last year. If you haven’t seen him before he’s from the same peeps who brought us Hello Kitty and is essentially a lazy egg. It’s a bit strange, but I relate to him so therefore he’s a hit with me. As with a lot of Japanese merch it can be difficult to get hold of in Europe or often watered down or copied, so I was very excited to see that UK retailers, Truffle Shuffle had bagged an exclusive range from this strange little fellow.
FINALLY! I have photos and information on the latest Dr. Martens Adventure Time collection, which launched officially yesterday I believe, although the DM website is down so I can’t say for sure. What I really wanted to show you were the blooming photos, I’ve asked the brand direct a few times and not had any help in getting this info and only found it thanks to @inkypics on Instagram tagging me in a post from Blue Banana.
The BMO ones are absolutely perfect, really, really love them and would totally wear these cuties.
As any self-proclaimed nerd will know, it’s the première of the latest instalment of Star Wars TONIGHT! I grew up on these films, remembering watching the original trilogy with my parents on VHS recorded off the TV from sometime in the 80s, complete with vintage advertisements from Woolworths and Fry’s Turkish Delight and stored in a classy faux leather bound book case. At primary school and at high school I got teased for being such a nerd, until it got to a stage that guys thought it was pretty rad that a girl knew so much about Star Wars. Anyway, whether you’re a fan or not there is SO MUCH MERCH about right now and I thought I’d share an edit of some bits that might be a little less obvious.
Party on Garth! Party on Wayne! Wayne’s World is definitely one of my fave films, such a classic! If you didn’t already know, my degree is in Cinema (not that it came in handy ever) and I spend the majority of my spare time watching films and TV with Miz, we are definitely some kind of nerds/geeks or something. And yea, I don’t know what I’m doing in this picture…
If you’re a gaming nerd you’ll probably already know about Insert Coin Clothing and their dedication to making tees and other apparel lines featuring niche (and not so niche) references to some of your favourite video games. If you’re not such a nerd you might like this upcoming collection instead! Hello Kitty x Insert Coin Clothing!
Here’s my second Nerd Block review for you, really liked the November box so kept the subscription running for another month, it’s great value at just under $20 a month and coming from Canada which generally means you get more unusual stuff that in the UK equivalents. I was so tempted to get Loot Crate […]
Girl Geek time again! I know I said I would make this a regular feature and I haven’t come back to it for a while, but when I spotted this new capsule collection from Comme des Garcon, I knew it was time to post again! I don’t think I need to say much except, that […]
