#IndieLove Day 1: La Barbuda Patches, Pins, Tees & Totes

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!

Sanrio’s Gudetama Arrives in the UK as Truffle Shuffle Exclusive

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.

Star Wars Merch is Everywhere…

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.

My First MCM Comic Con Winter 2014

I’ve always wanted to go to a ComicCon, every since seeing the adverts for various shows in the back of Empire, Total Film and SFX magazine that I had subscriptions to when I was growing up. In October I finally made it to my first ever Con in the form of MCM ComicCon at Excel […]
