Tried and tested: All the Heroes Mystery Box – Take Two!

Last month I bought a mystery box from All the Heroes (you can find my review here) and was a tad disappointed with their all-DC selection and male-centric imagery (Batman with abs - I ain't gonna be wearing that!). Fortunately, they soon released a 'girly' version, so Luke offered to take all the 'unisex' tees… Continue reading Tried and tested: All the Heroes Mystery Box – Take Two!

Tried and tested: All the Heroes Mystery Box

Earlier this month I shared the awesome All the Heroes Mystery Box which I just couldn't help ordering. My package arrived yesterday and I was excited to see which five random t-shirts I had been sent. I have to admit, I was a bit disappointed as I was hoping for a bit more variety.

New favourite website: Bay 57

It's not often that a sponsored post pops up on my Facebook newsfeed and I click on the link. It's even more rare that I then spend the best part of an hour browsing the entire site, following their social media accounts and pinning pretty much their entire stock. But that's what happened when Bay… Continue reading New favourite website: Bay 57

Judging a book by its cover: Comics and graphic novels

A few weeks ago my lovely baby brother bought me this copy of Death of the Family (Batman: New 52). The cover is amazing and I immediately had to share it online. It got me thinking about other new, special and limited editions of awesome comics. As you probably already know, Batman is my favourite… Continue reading Judging a book by its cover: Comics and graphic novels
