Frostfire Storms Transmog Set #TransmogTuesday

We’ve cycled back around to cloth for the class sets and I randomly chose Mage to wok with for this weeks set; Frostfire Storms.I started with the tier 20 shoulders from Tomb of Sargeras, aka the updated Tier 6 design. The shoulders keep the same purple hue as their Tier 6 counterpart along with some new blue elements and an electric storm animation. Continuing with the purple theme I pulled a couple of items from other Mage tiers; and . I chose a simple yet bright belt () to correspond with the design on the chest of the robe and inject some colour into theRead More →

October Monthly Update

Now, how would I describe October? Two things spring to mind; always behind and lergy. The month started off well enough and I had a nice peaceful simple birthday (just what I had in mind) and continued my annual birthday tradition of having some form of illness, usually something flu-like. I’ll let you read on to find out more about how my October went 🙂 I used to do a monthly goals post each month before I swapped to these round up posts this year. The reason for the change was I felt that I was putting a bit too much pressure on myself inRead More →

Lightsworn Paladin of the Val'kyr Transmog Set

So we’re having a Transmog Thursday this week! I had to push through for a deadline and ended up with several bust days afterwards thanks to my ME. As you can probably guess from the set name (set) it’s Paladin time and guess what? It wasn’t based on a set of shoulders! Rejoice! It was a helm this time, namely which I think is just gorgeous. I am not a big helm fan. I find most of them are big, ugly and as I play female characters they cut my hair off too. So it is highly unusual for me to pick a helm likeRead More →

It’s been a little while since the last Geek on the High Street due to holidays and getting back on track, and this month I’m doing something a little bit different! While most months I’ll be sticking to a particular fandom/franchise I am going to be doing some themes as well because I’m going to run out of fandoms and also because being a geek is more than just being a fangirl. I think this quote from Simon Pegg sums it up quite nicely: “Being a geek is all about being honest about what you enjoy and not being afraid to demonstrate that affection. ItRead More →

Amphora Aromatics Student Survival Kit Review

For those that don’t already know I’m currently finishing off a Masters in Information and Library Studies. The appearance and subsequent diagnosis of my ME (you can read all about that over here) threw some of my plans into chaos but thanks to a supportive department and understanding supervisor I was allowed to go on medical leave. But before all that I’d also graduated with two undergraduate degrees; one in Art History from the University of Leeds and one in English Literature from the University of Glasgow. So when an opportunity came about to the check out Amphora Aromatics’ Student Survival Kit I signed upRead More →
