GOTA-logo-highres-1

By sword, coin, or whisper, have you ever fancied yourself as the most powerful noble in Westeros? Well, you don’t need to start prepping your acting monologue to impress those casting directors, because Zygna, the makers of the hugely popular Facebook game Farmville, have brought Game of Thrones right into your own hands with Ascent.

This sounds too good to be true… what do I do in it?

Based on the hit HBO series and books, in Game of Thrones Ascent players lead the life of a noble during the time of upheaval as portrayed in the books and the series so the game unites both story and strategy. Players claim their birthright by choosing which of the great houses they swear allegiance to, securing their holdings, developing their lands and personal reputation, and assigning sworn swords to quests, all while forging alliances with new friends. GOTAunsullied

How do I get involved?

Well, its easy… but if you’re one of the very few people who don’t have Facebook, now might be the time to sign up! All you need to do is click on this link to start playing.

There is also a BETA version of the game which is also possible for you to play, but we’d recommend sticking with this one. Now lets just hope that the makers think about bringing it out on more than just Facebook eh?! GOTA.palace_gardens

What’s everyone raving about?

Well, when asked, fans say the allure of the game is that it is very close to the original storyline in the books and that they can fully immerse themselves in the world of Westeros where your decision affects the game going forwards.

Game of Thrones Ascent has experienced more than 500,000 installations since launching — many of those players returning to the virtual world of Westeros many times.

So let us know how you get on, and if you feel that the game is worthy of a bag of dragons then let us know.

Happy gaming Snoochers!

Would’t it be amazing if there was a place where all of the worlds comfiest pyjamas went to live and you could just browse between the 1D onesies and sleek silkie numbers. Well, there really is… and its called The Pyjama store!

Snoochie Boochies was lucky enough to be invited to a very special event for the store in the heart of swanky Mayfair. We found bed wear from the extravagant to the affordable, from the slinky to the sophisticated and basically everything for men, women and children.

The Pyjama Store was born in 2010 due to the frustrations of poor online choices for good quality men’s pyjamas and robes it initially housed four brands and within 18 months grew to incorporate women’s wear with five more women’s specialist designers. By 2013, The Pyjama Store had amassed a great selection of cool, younger brands with fresh and exciting new designs including Cyberjammies and by popular request, kid’s jim jams!

So we thought, we’d run through three of our top pickings from The Pyjama store and give you a flavour for what it has to offer:

The Charlie McLeod Nordic Zippy

Prices starting at £79.00

This is where guys become honorary members of 1 Direction who love chilling out in nothing more than a onesie. The superstar of comfort is made of super soft cotton rich fabric which makes you feel like you want to curl up and just take life easy. Throw into the mix our very generous sizing and you could lounge all day.

The soft feeling hood has natural coloured drawcords which match those great zip pullers, the front pouch pocket has an internal phone/mp3 pocket with a small hole so your wires can be fed up the inside of the Zippy, and the cuffs have the all important thumb holes.

After a day on the slopes, work or studying you only need to reach for one item of clothing. The Nordic Zippy with its bright white print, this is the real deal. Perfect for lounging, perfect for our modern life.

The MaybeBlu Collection

Currently on sale starting at £18.00

What there’s more? 

Now this event wasn’t all about Pyjamas, as a special treat the The Dollz team was on hand to do amazing make overs and Game of Thrones hair stylist Timothy David was on hand to give some style advice and add some ‘ju-ju’ to our hair to make us look FABULOUS!

So we thought we’d end on his three words of advice for beautiful fabulous hair…

1) Make sure you have good hair products which are correctly diagnosed by a stylist

2) Always go to a good hair stylist

3) Regular visits to the hair dresser are a must!

Have a great weekend Snoochers and get yourself looking glam for day and night time!

Upgrade to a sleek super sound system with @otoneaudio #tech #gadget #music #audio

 

Screen Shot 2013-09-05 at 08.32.46Need to upgrade your sound system? Then if you’re into the latest gadgets look no further than this bad boy! OTONE Audio is set to invade the speaker dock market with the launch of its very first docking system, SoundShip Micro.

It all sounds seriously space age, this cheeky device is named the SoundShip Micro because of its compact, orbital, space-like design, which also features a unique ‘push and pop’ core that houses all of the devices connectivity ports and also acts as a stand – so its streamlined to perfection with no unsightly wires etc need to be seen.

If you’re also on the move, the SoundShip Micro can be used anywhere thanks to its handy rechargeable lithium ion battery, which provides up to 10 hours of portable playback. The speaker also comes with a handy carry case, giving it license to travel.

I bet you my phone doesn’t work with this…

…well, you’re betting on the wrong card if you think that! One of the things that we love is that connecting to the Soundship (we like that phrase!  – it sounds pretty space age!) couldn’t be easier. The system boasts an array of functionalities, including Micro USB connectivity for Android, Bluetooth and an AUX line in, making it compatible with any device.

Considering it measures just 115x250x45mm in size, the compact portable speaker also provides impressively clean and crisp audio via its two 40mm full-range drivers, packing a punch with a combined audio output of 6 watts.

How much does it cost?

At £99.99 its a pretty good investment for the long term. With optimum sound clarity, and original design its pretty much in demand by anyone who likes a high end spec to not only their lifestyles but also their gadgets too.

The SoundShip Micro is the latest in a line of product launches for the brand, following the successful launch of the Sonora AV-Lance soundbar in May.
