Absolutely fabulous!
We were so excited when we spotted our stunning Alice in Wonderland 'Drink Me' necklace in the News of the World's Fabulous magazine this weekend! It was depicted in all its twinkling wonder in a beautiful shot, embedded in a silver glitter shoreline. Gosh, wouldn't it be lovely if this washed up at your toes! This is a true Disney Couture classic and a must have for any Alice in Wonderland collector. We only have limited stocks though, so better dive in quick before they drift away! xoxo

Swedish Vicar in Dodgy T-Shirt Probe...
We had a little chuckle at this - a Stockholm pastor is being probed by the Church for wearing a dodgy men's t shirt.

Apparently, colleagues saw a photo on his facebook profile of the naughty minister wearing a tee with a print of a well known Swedish porn film, and are currently working out what action to take. The photo was taken while he was supervising a children's trip to France.

Maybe he could have sparked less of an outrage by wearing something slightly less risky - he could have even praised the Lord himself with this amazing Jesus T Shirt from Chunk!

What Back to the Future II didn’t predict very well...

Back to the Future II came to our screens in 1989, and brought with it a little taste of what we could hope to see in everyday life on October 21st 2015. OK, so we still have four years to go until 2015, but I’ll forget to blog about this by then!!

Robert Zemekis and team came up with some pretty good predictions of life 25 years in the future... video calling at home, touch screen food ordering at restaurants (our local KFC has this J), video advertising hoardings and personal phones. There was also the odd farfetched prediction, but hey, it’d be nowhere near as ace without a flying Delorean!!

BTTF2 SAYS: Cars would not only fly on skyways, they’d also be powered by household waste

REALITY: The World’s 750,000,000 motor vehicles all still drive on congested roads, burning 1 trillion litres of petrol and diesel each year

BTTF2 SAYS: A “Weather Service” schedules rain at uniform times

REALITY: As this week has shown, the weather is less predictable and more disruptive every year!

BTTF2 SAYS: Marty Jnr uses a phone booth.

REALITY: 90% of children own a mobile phone, and are more likely to own one than own a book!

BTTF2 SAYS: Shoes automatically fasten themselves, clothes electronically shrink to fit your size (and kindly talk to you), and Marty’s jacket even contained its own blow drying facility.

REALITY: Afraid not, it’s just plain old normal clothes still – like our (shameless plug) Back to the Future T Shirts

BTTF2 SAYS: Doc Brown’s USA Today articles include one claiming a record breaking 3 minute mile has been run, one referring to a female president (close one!) and one referring to Queen Diana.

REALITY: The world record mile currently stands at 3:43:12by Moroccan Hicham El Guerrouj. Although Hilary Clinton came close as the first female president of the USA, Barak Obama beat her to it. Even if the people’s princess were alive today, she would never have become queen after her separation from Prince Charles – although by 2015, the chances are that Kate Middleton may inherit the aforementioned title!

BTTF2 SAYS: All lawyers have been abolished


BTTF2 SAYS: Jaws 19 is released in October 2015

REALITY: Unless they release 15 Jaws sequels in the next four years, this one’s pretty unlikely!

BTTF2 SAYS: Mass produced Hoverboards are the latest craze for kids

REALITY: This one might not be as far away as we think – see here. But far from being available in all good toy stores!

BTTF2 SAYS: Pizza Hut (and presumably other foods) come in miniature, dehydrated form, and a microwave like “hydrator” is used to cook and expand the food in under 3 seconds.

REALITY: Still cold pizza delivered in a box, I suppose they now have insulated bags on their mopeds!

BTTF2 SAYS: Fax machines are dotted around the house and, along with video calling (got that one right Universal J), fax machines seem to be the messaging system of choice.

REALITY: The fax boom has come and long gone. Email has grossly surpassed the fax as the written communication method of choice.

Punky Allsorts serves up some delicious treats!
We could hardly contain our excitement when we received the new Punky Allsorts 'Miniatures Collection' here at Truffle Towers! A veritable feast of sweet treats and the nations favourite dinners, thankfully the range has also been extended to include 'Punky for Homme', so the guys don't miss out! The hot and uber stylish Rachel Bilson has been spotted out flashing her delicious 'A La Tart' ring, a mouth wateringly beautiful and intricately hand crafted stunner featuring a plate of patisserie tarts which look good enough to eat (non-edible though I'm afraid)!

If you are partial to a featherweight Flump or one of Bertie's special Liquorice Allsorts, you should definitely check out the gorgeous mock pearl bracelets and necklaces! 
Beans on Toast and Egg on Chips are always a yummy treat (especially served up the morning after a raucous night on the tiles!) and  they can now be enjoyed as a stylish accessory in the form of a ring and quirky sets of cuff links. A real talking point!
So, why not check out the full range, they make awesome Crimbo gifts and even though they have been loving crafted by hand in the UK, are an amazingly great price, so you can treat yourself too and indulge in your fave treats all day long! We do like to spoil you! xoxo
