It’s that time of the year when nothing’s really happening and the weather can’t decide what it’s doing. Clearly, the best solution to this is to shop. Here’s what Team Gadgette wants this week.
Don’t ask me why, but I’m having a marble phase this week. This hoodie reminds me of science experiments at school, and while I’m not 100% sure whether I think it’s kickass or ugly, I want it either way.
I’m going to wear it with a blue crystal necklace to remind me of growing Copper Sulphate.
It’s by Boohoo, comes in sizes 6-14 and is £16 at ASOS.
Marble(ish) iPhone 6 case
Wasn’t kidding about the marble thing.
This is a different type of marble, obviously (and it’s not real, unlike the considerably more expensive but very beautiful Native Union Clic cases). Sadly there isn’t one for the Galaxy S7, so I’ll just look at the iPhone one and cry.
£16 from Urban Outfitters, who are total Android haters apparently

Wonder Woman bikini
I have a holiday coming up soon and of course that means I’ve been looking at filling my case with swimwear because when I get access to a pool, I tend to avoid leaving it. So I was pretty excited to see that Hot Topic are selling DC comic bikinis.
You can get Harley Quinn, the Joker, and Batman inspired suits, but my favourite is this Wonder Woman one. The bottoms have the BELT! The top and bottoms are usually $34.50 (£24) each, but since Hot Topic have a sale on just now they’re $24.15 (£17) and I think a discount is a good enough reason to buy. I’d need it anyway considering the $38 shipping, but it’s absolutely worth it.
Knights shot glasses
I’ve been thinking that before Game of Thrones makes its return, I might have to re-watch series 5 and make a drinking game out of it. I can’t really think of a better thing to have for such a momentous event than this Knight’s shot glass set. They’re made from stainless steel and come in a set of 4, so I suppose if I decide to invite other people they can have one too.
$19.99 (£14) from ThinkGeek plus £26 (sob) for economy shipping. TG, when are you coming to the UK?

Peropon Drinking Animal Planter
I’ve been wanting more plants in my house for a while so I’ve been searching for cool pots to put them in. I’ve already got a 3D-printed Bulbasaur but I think these adorable animals might be even better. The animals slurp up the water they need for the plants through their huge tongue. Is it practical? Not really. Is it better than a normal plant pot? Probably not. Do I care? Nope. Look at their vacant little faces!

Gosin Ultrathin Bluetooth Keyboard with Touchpad
So here’s my problem. I have a bunch of computers that live in different parts of my home. I’ve decided that I like my Raspberry Pi being connected to the same monitor I use for the PS4. Instead of sitting at a desk, I like to work on my Pi projects and coding from the comfort of a lazy chair. Obviously that isn’t ideal with a big wired keyboard and a mouse with nowhere to go. I’ve used this Gosir keyboard at a friend’s place and really liked it. Having a built-in trackpad means I can make myself comfy and hack away. It’s usually £70 so it’s a steal right now at 63% off.
