The Magic Market Day in Erskine - review of a local Harry Potter themed market

When an event popped up on facebook for The Magic Market Day just across the river from me at the Erskine Bridge Hotel and Spa I knew that I had to pop along to see it for myself! A magical Harry Potter themed market right on my doorstep?! How could I not? More importantly I knew it was my chance to shine a light on the amazing local stall owners, their talents and the products they had for sale. I was not disappointed by the fantastic range of handmade goods available and I was given permission to take photos of their products in exchange forRead More →

This set is based on one that I came up with for one of Wowhead’s hunter transmog contests. I liked it so much that I’m still wearing the one I created and decided to tidy it up for the hunter set in the class series. It has ended up being an Alliance hunter set, however, as one of the pieces is alliance specific (). I’ve not taken the time to find a horde equivalent but I’m sure you can find one that works; I always go through several possibilities when creating a set before deciding on a final one. My own hunter is wearing andRead More →

Dreadwake of the Ebon Blade Death Knight Transmog Set

When I think of a Death Knight I think blue. It isn’t because of their gleaming frozen eyes, or that one of their specs is frost. It’s because I’m reminded of my favourite expansion, the one that introduced them, Wrath of the Lich King. I’m sure there were plenty of players who got sick of the never-ending icy landscapes of Northrend, but for me I loved the blue, silver and purple shades employed by the art team to create a beautiful place that was juxtaposed by the horrific abominations of the Scourge. Anyway, enough of the poetry. There are plenty of blue hues to chooseRead More →

#LoveYourBacklog Week 2019!

I’ve been trying to do a backlog post and work on my video game backlog for a while now, so when I saw Michelle at A Geek Girl’s Guide post her #LoveYourBacklog post I knew I had to join in! What is #LoveYourBacklog Week? It’s a week long event run by Kim of Later Levels and LightningEllen of Livid Lightning aimed at dispelling the idea of anxiety, fear or apprehension a gamer might get while thinking of their backlog. Every gamer has one, and the idea that there’s this ever growing list of games sitting there can sometimes be a bit daunting – I knowRead More →

It’s been a while since there’s been a Transmog Tuesday and after a few months break it’s back! I think the break did my creative juices a lot of good as this set came together really easily. Other than the last one, I was beginning to struggle with some sets so it seems a break was needed in more ways than one!  I started with the tier 8 heroic robe and was originally using that as my base element. While hunting for a pair of shoulders I came across one of the Warlock legendaries from Legion which shares an appearance with a pvp set. FromRead More →
