Shop spotlight: Genki Gear

Genki Gear Cupcake of Doom print

Recently, I attended Hyper Japan, the UK's biggest J-culture and anime convention (and it's seriously worth going to, if you've got a pair of comfortable shoes). There was, as you can imagine, plenty to do and to see - and in the way of geek fashion, it was heaven. It's where I fell head over … [Read more...]

Shop of the Week: Bouf

Buying from independent sellers is often a more enjoyable experience than buying from a larger company. The customer service tends to be more tailored to the individual, a little more care goes into the sale and independent sellers are often happy to go the extra mile. It's generally a nicer … [Read more...]

Customised fashion services are not a particularly new innovation. In fact, we mentioned a few a while ago in our round-up of the best ways to customise your life. But there's still room for a few new sites to pop up and give the more established sites a run for their money.

Something a little bit different this week. It's all about collecting money rather than spending it. Last year, I organised my sister's hen do, and spent ages chasing and collecting money from those who were attending.

We may be geeks here at Dork Adore, but that doesn't mean we don't know the importance of a good pair of hair tongs, or indulge in some beauty buying on a regular basis (especially beauty gadgets). We're a bunch of chic geeks, after all. But time is tight. Personally, I don't have the patience … [Read more...]

Shop of the week: Fab UK

Shopping online is fun. Do it in your PJs, do it on the commute to work, and do it when you're drunk (it's like a present to your sober self in a couple of days time). Shopping offline is not fun; you have to wear actual clothes. And deal with people inyourface. And queue for things. And – in … [Read more...]
