Looking for a gift for a Back to the Future fan? It only seems fitting that we follow Miz’s epic Complete Guide to Time Travel Movies with another time travel, movie related post. If you grew up in the 80s or 90s, the Back to the Future franchise probably gives you all kinds of feels. […]
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.
So it wouldn’t be right for me to be writing these Etsy gift guides without doing one that addresses one of my blog’s main themes, beauty! We all know those big brands you can find on the high street, but there’s also some pretty awesome indie beauty brands knocking about which you may not have seen before. In this guide I’m going to show you my picks of Etsy’s beauty offerings. Click read more if you’d like to find the retailer’s info.
Apparently it’s Christmas soon, so that seems like a good enough reason to create a list of some really, really cool stuff you can get on the awesome Etsy. Since Miz is currently engrossed in Fallout 4 on PS4 and I continue to be powering ahead with Borderlands 2 DLC’s, I thought it’d be fun to pick out some of the best Etsy bits and bobs with a gaming theme. Enjoy!
