Have you ever heard of a store called Hot Topic? If not… why the hell not?! Honestly though, if you haven’t.. that’s probably for the best. I apologize in advance, if I give you a new addiction!
First of all, don’t feel too bad if you haven’t heard of Hot Topic. They are American and sadly they haven’t expanded over to the UK (yet?). They are awesomely geeky stores though so if you have a love for Disney, Harry Potter, Doctor Who, Walking Dead, Marvel and DC, gamer gear, band merch… seriously the list is endless… then you will love this shop.
Updated with new stuff, pretty much daily, the site is almost an addiction for a pop culture fan like me. Sadly, the incredibly expensive overseas postage is quite a deterrent from ordering though. The one time I visited America (New York) I actually managed to visit a Hot Topic store and I bought this amazing Gryffindor jacket (coincidentally I’m wearing it as I write this post!).
Anyway the site is awesome and I have a huge wishlist, that pretty much builds every day. From clothes, to Funko Pop figures, from necklaces, to bags – there is SO MUCH stuff I
want would like.
Here are just a few of my picks.
This beautiful Beauty and the Beast, stained glass window, glass. It’s currently selling for $6.38, which is about £4. I have always loved Beauty and the Beast and Belle is by far my favourite princess. I used to have this exact design as my phone case but this glass is just amazing!
It’s always been a tough call for me, between Disney and Harry Potter so its no surprise that next on my list is something Harry Potter. This awesome Expecto Patronum necklace is only $9.38 (approximately £7) and even though its gold, I’d still love it!
I originally had my eye on a Beauty and the Beast dress but its been and gone sadly. I’m not entirely sure what it is about this dress (as I’m not especially into Maleficent, though she is kickass) but it just calls to me. It retails at $25.88 (about £16) and I certainly won’t be buying it until I’ve slimmed down somewhat!
This Doctor Who TARDIS Shower Rack is just my kind of thing. Hand on heart, I wouldn’t actually use it in the shower, probably put it near the door for keys, envelopes etc. but I love it. However at $37.13 (£23) its one of the most expensive things on my wish list.
There are loads more things I’d love, majority are Disney or after that Harry Potter. Honestly if I lived in the US, or if postage overseas were cheaper, I’d probably be flat broke (so I should be grateful for that at least). Hot Topic is such a great store and I’m sure it will have be lusting after their stuff for the rest of my life! If you dare, check it out.
