G I F T I D E A - S C R A B B L E L I G H T S

So with Christmas just around the corner, I am sure you are all on the hunt for Christmas Gifts for your friends & family! Well, these Scrabble Lights from IWOOT are a pretty amazing choice! Whether you are giving them as a Christmas gift or just wanting some extra decoration for your abode the Scrabble lights are perfect for anyone who loves unusual, retro or unique decor.

The Scrabble lights come with 60 re-usable stickers so you can write whatever you want (as long as it is within 10 characters or less) Such a great way to give a personilised gift. They are great for any occasion to be honest. You can use them as Birthday bunting or even stick motivational & inspirational words on them (Pinterest style!) and hang them up in your office/workspace!

It took me a little while to decide exactly what I wanted to spell out on the lights but I eventually sent with the word 'fancy' cos, why the hell not! As he really hates cheesy word decor Liam suggested some words of profanity (which is an idea I really liked actually, it's very 'us' hahahah so yeah, that might happen in the future as it would be so funny for someone to walk into your house, it look all normal & stuff then there's just Scrabble Lights with the word 'Fuck' or 'Twat' hanging on the wall hahahah!)

Anyway... the Scrabble Lights themselves are actually really bright (which I love) & they can be plugged into a USB port or you can slot the USB unto the plug head which is included. I personally prefer to use the plug head but the USB wire is such a good idea too!

At the moment the Scrabble Lights are actually just £16.99 on IWOOT for a limited time! (RRP £25) so get your butts on the site quick if you are after some for Christmas gifts!

What would you write on the Scrabble Lights?

H A R R Y P O T T E R - L O N D O N




Harry Potter Studio Tour: London
………………………………………………………………………………………………………………

I have been meaning to write this post up for so long! I have just not had time to do anything blog related (cry me a fucking river) but hey, I'm here now! You may have seen the Harry Potter haul that I uploaded to YouTube if not, you should totally go & watch it, yeah? ;)

As you can see, I took a million photos & I wanted to take a million more but we went before I bought my new camera & my iphone was already struggling to cope with the amount of pictures I was already making it snap hahahah so yeah, not the best quality but who really gives a damn? I'm sure we'll be going back again so I will be mega prepared next time! (':

My favourite bit...it's kind of hard to pick a favourite to be honest! It was all so good! I'm sure my fellow Potterheads will agree! We probably spent most of our time on Platform 9 3/4 with the The Hogwarts Express but that was mainly because it took me literally 6,824,965 attempts to get the perfect shot of me running through the wall! I COULDN'T DO IT OK!? (': Liam did it straight away (he had totally been practicing in Sanisbury's car park with a trolly or something! Hahahahah!) It really did take me about 15 attempts though & eventually I had to just settle with the best of a bad bunch (see above) ha! I will be practicing before we go next time for sure!

Another section of the tour that took my breath away was the room with the model of Hogwarts (first picture) it.was.amazing! That's all I am going to say, you need to actually go to understand the awesomeness! Go & book your tickets now!!!

The butterbeer was surprisingly good! I had heard majorly bad things about it, loads of people on their Warner Brothers Studio Tours vlogs on YouTube reacted to it like they had just downed a bucket of piss but they couldn't be more wrong! It tasted like honey Iron Bru with Marshmallow Fluff on top. Bloody divine it was!

I'll stop rambling now as you all probably want to go & watch my vlog ;) hahahah & look at the WB Studio tour website but feel free to leave your comments down below or drop me a tweet @sugarpea_ There are also a million photos on my Instagram @sugarpea_

Hellooo again! I just wanted to pop this here for you guys to have a watch at your own leisure ;) As you can see, it's an ASOS haul. I haven't uploaded a clothing/accessory haul for a long time so it will be a nice change for those of you who have been on my YouTube recently! Do let me know if you want to see any more videos like this. Oh & also let me know if there are any videos in particular you would like me to film!  

You can see my entire channel here.

Tell me what you think of this video & maybe take a mini second to subscribe to my channel as I have a few more videos planned for sometime very soon :)

Disney Vans: ASOS
………………………………………………………………………………………………………………

OK, so... if you are here it's probably because you already know that I am into Disney & you are probably aware (especially if you follow me on Snapchat) that I wear my Vans to death!

I posted the box on my Instagram & Twitter as I thought it would be fun for you guys to try & guess which ones I picked so I guess this post is the big reveal *oooh the excitement* I bet you couldn't sleep for wondering! ;) Well I have put you out of your misery now so I hope you like them as much as I do!

A couple of months ago, I discovered that Vans were teaming up with Disney to do a range of men's & women's footwear & apparel (see the original post here, it's awesome, go & look)

After seeing the designs, I knew it wouldn't be long before I was strutting around with a pair on my feet, my only issue was that I couldn't choose which ones I wanted to buy! DILEMMA!

I finally caved the other day & decided that I was going to buy myself a pair as a kind of 'well done on getting your new job' gift to myself (ahahahah, like I needed an excuse!) I ummed & aaahhhed over two pairs in particular (Ariel & Jasmine) for an age! In the end I chose the Princess Jasmine ones purely because they are a darker colour so they are easier to keep looking kind of clean & I know I will get more ware out of them.

These particular ones are off ASOS & you can get them in Women's, Men's & kid's sizes!

Are these the ones you thought I would pick? Do you have any of the Disney Vans? Let me know in the comments or you can tweet me @sugarpea_

………………………………………………………………………………………………………………

Hellooo! So I reached out on my Twitter the other week & asked you guys if you would like me to film a Tiger haul (because I didn't know that they were a 'thing') There was a resounding 'yes' vote so I filmed it that day. However, my laptop decided to be a pain & wouldn't let me save the edited version of the video for some reason (I tried at least 8 times over a few days, ugh) I kind of gave up for a while, blah, blah, blah, fast forward a week or two later & it's finally up! Woohoo!

OK so that's the boring ramble out of the way... how cool is Tiger!?! Being from the north, I had never experienced such awesomeness. Come on Tiger, give us some Northern stores please! I actually tweeted that it would be great if they opened up shop in the north & their main account tweeted back & said that they have it in the pipeline sooooo hopefully we wont have to wait too long! Tiger do have a website with their products on but you can't buy direct from there...TORTURE!!!

I show you what I bought in by video (ovbs cos it's a haul, duh) I picked up some really cute stuff. There's a mixture of home wear, stationary & random bits, hahah, just go & watch the video to find out! ;)

You can see my entire channel here.

Anyway, let me know if you liked the video & maybe take a mini second to subscribe to my channel as I have a few more videos planned for sometime very soon :)

Have you ever been to Tiger? Let me know in the comments or you can tweet me @sugarpea_

'Clever girl'

………………………………………………………………………………………………………………

Oh hello there my fellow dinosaur friends. I am a huge dino enthusiast so naturally, when I saw this two piece, my inner dinosaur got all excited *flails around tiny arms like a T-rex*

My love for all things Dinosaur were re-ignited a few weeks ago also when we went to see Jurassic World at the cinema. It.was.brilliant! I promise I'm not just saying that because I am dino obsessed, or Chris Pratt obsessed or something...hahahah! But seriously, it was great. It had the perfect amount of nostalgia, raptor action & Chris Pratt dreamboating...ahem.

Anyways, You might have already seen me post this on my Instagram (stalk me: @sugarpea_ ) last night but I wanted to share it on here too, you know, shout it from the roof tops & all that!

I bought this little two-piece number from Pretty Little Thing. It is part of PLT's current 'Playhouse' collection. You can get both pieces for just £18 (if you are a first time shopper, you can get 15% off your first order by signing up to their newsletter, fab!)

So what are you waiting for? Go & shop (here)

What do you think of this two piece? Would you wear it? Let me know in the comments or you can tweet me @sugarpea_

Breton striped Lace Up Top: Topshop
Boyfriend shorts: Topshop
Chunky sandals: Topshop
………………………………………………………………………………………………………………

Well, hahahah! It was only when I started writing the list of Items above that I realised I am in fact wearing all Topshop, oopsies. Who am I?

Anywhooo... we needed to test some stuff out (lighting/composition etc) in the studio the other day & apart from the fact I can't snap my fingers & make a model appear they are also bloody expensive so I stood in for a 10 minute mini shoot. As you can probably tell, my eyes are full of hay fever hence the squinty eye business in the last shot (':

At least you can see my new favorite top anyway. I tend to only buy basics from Topshop, mainly denim, shirts & jersey tees as everything is still pretty expensive, boo! even though It was £22 I am really glad I bought it. It love a good ol' striped tee & the lace up detail on the front of this one is really neat!

This is pretty much the kind of thing I wear to work on a daily basis when I know I need to be comfortable, ha, I dress for comfort a lot these days (':

What do you think of this outfit? Do you mind me doing the odd outfit/personal post every so often? Let me know in the comments or you can tweet me @sugarpea_

'It's all I ever wanted'

………………………………………………………………………………………………………………

I haven't watched the finale episode yet & wont be until late tonight so no spoilers ^_^ but since I haven't posted any of my drawings for a while, I thought it would be fun to celebrate the end of season 5 Game Of Thrones with a GOT themed digi sketch I did a little while ago.

I have already drawn Arya
Cersei & Daenerys (click the links to see) & Sansa was part of the project I set myself too. I never draw human portraits but I have had fun getting to grips with these ladies faces & I am happy with the outcome of all four.

I love Sansa. She has grown so much as a character over the past 5 seasons & she has been especially good in season 5, she's almost as badass as her sister now! I love it when she has her hair down rather than plonked on her head like a croissant so I drew a slightly earlier version of her, I hope you like it.

Now I just need to get to grips with drawing mens faces. Why are they so much harder to draw?! I was going to try & doodle Stannis but after what he did last week, I can't bring myself to look at him! >.< Maybe I'll have a go at sketching Ramsey or Joffrey? Any suggestions are welcome :) 

What do you think of this digi sketch? Who do you think I should draw next? Let me know in the comments or you can tweet me @sugarpea_

Well, isn't this exciting!
Photos c/o myself, Lima & Chyaz
………………………………………………………………………………………………………………

A few months ago, I met Chyaz at the Preloved bloggers event in Manchester, along with a load of other amazlings (Terri & Lima)

Chyaz got in touch with me a few weeks ago to tell me that she had been working on an exciting, top secret project & asked if I would like to be involved. I was pretty nervous about saying yes but opportunities like this don't come along often so I agreed.

So, on Friday, I spent the afternoon with Chyaz & Lima on the show Talk Manchester. It was live *eeek* & I am so glad I did it. Everything was really relaxed & wen't really smoothly. Even though I got butt cramp in my left cheek hahhahah! (I'm blaming it on the nerves!) Chyaz is such a natural presenter & put both me Lima & I at ease.

We talked about trending topics on twitter that day which included #fridayfeeling, Jack the Ripper, video games, fashion & much more. It was such a mixed bag, it was great.

So if you live in the Manchester area, pop on freeview channel 8 & have a gander at That's Manchester!

I just wanted to say another big thank you to Chyaz again for having us on her new show!

Let me know in the comments if you saw it or if you are planning on tuning in, in the future (or tweet me

'Fire cannot kill a dragon'

………………………………………………………………………………………………………………

So this is a more recent drawing I have done (hence why my new watermark is on there ^_^) As you can see, it's another Game Of Thrones babe.

Now although I think Daenerys is a fabulous character, I do think the show fixates on her a little too much sometimes, you know, just for the sake of having her in the episode but in saying that, I still think she's great & I have really enjoyed her so far in season 5.

Anywhoo, I hope you like my drawing. This one was a little 'harder' than the others as her hair was a little tricky, I had to tone down my scribble lines a lot so that her plaits still showed through hahah, overall though, I'm pretty happy with the outcome!

What do you think of this week's Game Of Thrones themes drawing? Let me know in the comments or you can tweet me @sugarpea_

'When you play the game of thrones, you win or you die. There is no middle ground.'

………………………………………………………………………………………………………………

Sooo, drawing board round two!

Thank you all for the amazing comments about my Arya sketch on twitter, I really wasn't expecting such a vast response :') I will deffo be continuing with this weekly feature now I know you are interested! ^_^

This week is the turn of Cersei Lannister. I's only the second portrait I have ever done *gasps* but I am pretty happy with the outcome to be honest. Like I said on my last DB post (here) I don't like to draw realism because, quite frankly, I'm really crap at it so I take a more painterly approach to my work.

Her lips are a little messed up, more because I am lazy & couldn't be bothered trying to make them better so after about 1482 times of trying, I gave up kept them simple.

Cersei (flippin'eck her name is hard to spell hahahah) is one of my favorite characters, mainly because she thinks she's so clever, when in fact, she's really not & everything she seems to do goes tits up (': She is such a great character to watch & her hair always looks flawless which is a big plus!

So what do you think of this week's portrait? Let me know in the comments or you can tweet me @sugarpea_

'Stick 'em with the pointy end!'

………………………………………………………………………………………………………………

Well this is new!

If you have followed me on Instagram (follow me here if you fancy) for a while, you may already know that I am no stranger to picking up a pen & drawing, mainly flowers & animals & more flowers.

A little while back I drew a series of portraits from Game Of Thrones & never did anything with them so I thought I would share them on here! Lucky you! ;)

I drew Arya Stark because I really love her character (TEAM STARK!) & I love Maisie Williams, she's such a strong female in the show & in real life so I thought it would be pretty fun to have a go at drawing her. ^_^ 

Portraits really aren't my thing, nor is realism, so I took a more basic, painterly approach. I would love to know what you think of this, I will definitely be posting the other characters I have drawn here soon too!

Let me know what you think in the comments, or tweet me! @sugarpea_ :)
