My Lifestyle Lately – January

I thought I’d start this up again as it’s a nice way for you to get to know the person behind the blog and it’s a nice way for me to remember what I’ve been up to.

Lotus Vegetarian Kitchen

Me and the Bloke celebrated new years eve by visiting Lotus a vegetarian restaurant in Withington which is often overlooked due to it’s location. We love it there, the food (which includes the most amazing mock meats) is superb. Then we came home and watched The X Files and Grimm and enjoyed an awesome firework display by a neighbouring family from the comfort of our sofa!

The Bloke cooked us a New Years day meal which was even better than Christmas day’s with Quorn roast, al dente green beans, carrots, broccoli, sprouts, mashed potato, Yorkshire puds, stuffing, roast potatoes and veggie sausages.

You know those thrifty programmes where they tell you to look in your parents or grandparents loft (attic) where you will almost certainly find hidden treasure? Well not exactly anything of value but I did find this vintage rucksack which would be perfect for festivals. Weirdly, no one has a clue how it got there!?

I’ve added to my collection of the weirder kind of Funko Pops and bought Deadpool, The Cheshire Cat and Alien. As you can see Deadpool is the only person looking figure in my little collection.

 I love it when it gets all foggy at night and makes everything under the street lights look all eery.

I was emailed by vegetarian restaurant 1847 offering 50% off, yup half price! So obviously wanting too support Manchester veggie eateries we thought it rude not to book a table.

The Bloke managed to get these cool shots of the beautiful super moon and I (using the same model of camera) managed to take a big fuzzy orange blob which I won’t bother showing you lol

I’ve been trying to drink only gluten free beer lately but my local Coop run out so I bought this Brewdog beer (which isn’t one of their gluten free ones) instead. It’s the most fruity and refreshing beer I’ve ever had. Such a shame it isn’t one of their gluten free offerings.

I’ve discovered an online shop called EMP which apart from stocking some amazing rock chick apparel also do Funko Pop! and other random cool stuff. I’ve been in need of a mug for ages so bought this kawaii version of Deadpool.

So to some up my purse is a bit lighter and my belly is a lot fatter ^_^

5 Fandom Friday – Fave Fictional Foods

5 Fandom Friday – Fave Fictional Foods

Maybe I’m not a big enough geek or maybe it’s my bad memory but this is going to take some research! I’ll start with the obvious and progress to the more obscure.

Honeydukes in HarryPotter

Anything really, especially the Pepper Imps ‘breathe fire for your friends’, better make sure you tie your hair back though!

Tacos in Deadpool

I know, I know tacos aren’t fictional but the account of him liking them is. I’d love to share a taco with him, mainly because I think he’s awesome, not because I like those awkward little things that break up the second you bite them.

Ambrosia

The food of the Greek and Roman Gods is a kind of sweet nectar poured over fruit which sounds wonderful and also gives you immortality by the way. Although on second thoughts maybe this wouldn’t be the best of ideas, I mean you’d get sort of lonely after a century or just plain bored….

Three Course Meal Sweets in Charlie and the Chocolate Factory

You know those days when you feel really bloated from the night before but you’re still hungry? ;o)

 Sharing a curry with Lister from Red Dwarf

He’s pretty fit, he’s lazy, he appreciates a hot curry and quite a few beers. Who better to spend an evening with when you just want to Netflicks and chill – or whatever their version of that is.

Did I miss any obvious one’s out and do you think I cheated a tad? Hehee!

My Geeky Zavvi Wishlist

There are things I should probably get as they fall under the ‘need’ category such as Sketchers trainers with memory foam for my joints and my back, plus new glasses as I’m starting to get mild headaches after long blog posts but these are the wonderful things that I ‘want’ from Zavvi.

Holiday Dancing Groot (available to pre-order)

groot

So adorable!

Batman Hoodie

I would much rather have this logo across my chest rather than GAP or Nike.

Deadpool Vs. Carnage Graphic Novel (%15 off with code MEM15 for 24hrs!)

deadpool

If you are going to be a superhero you might as well be a bad-ass one with a sick sense of humour, I say.

Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D Director Coulson with Lola (available to pre-order)

coulsonMe: (referring to the actor) He has such a kind face.

The Bloke: Like really fatherly.

Me: Er, yeah sure *blushes*

Need For Speed PS4 (pre-order now)

Sometimes I get bored of shooting zombies and soldiers and zombie-soldiers, plus I’m really competitive!

Guardians of the Galaxy ‘Dangerous’ Gamora tee

Guardians of the Galaxy Logo tee

GG

I love how retro this graphic looks, I just wish it were a little faded and crackled.

Batman Dark Knight Returns Graphic Novel Paper Back ( %15 off with code MEM15 for 24 hrs!)

batmanbook

A classic piece of Frank Miller

Tina Belcher from Bob’s Burgers (available to pre-order)

tina

As a kid I had the awkwardness of Tina but the crazy spontaneity of Louise (how I didn’t end up in a plaster cast is beyond me). It’s the look of this one though, that really makes me grin.

Which ones are you lusting after?
