TruffleShuffle Insider: Meet…Andy

Ever wondered who exactly is behind the scenes at TruffleShuffle? Well our TruffleShuffler insider blog series is the perfect place to look. Each month we take a member of the team and interrogate politely ask them a few questions to help uncover who they are, what they do and what stuff they like or don’t like. It’s that simple!.

This time we’re looking into the world of warehouse busy bee Andy to find out just what makes him tick. Take it away!

What do you do here at Truffle Towers?
I work in the warehouse dealing with dispatching all the customer orders, picking and packing and making sure they are ready for collection by Royal Mail.

I also deal with receiving and booking in all stock.

How long have you been at TruffleShuffle?
I think about 6 years but I’m not sure exactly.
.
What do you like most about working here / best thing about your job?
It’s always felt more like friends or family, in previous jobs there’s always been someone I don’t like or get on with, and it’s not like that here.  We regularly have staff nights out, bake offs and other things going on. It’s not boring and it’s not been a job that I didn’t want to get up for.
What is your favourite tee currently on the site?
I’ve been watching a lot of Friends recently so it’s our brand new Men’s Off White Pivot Pivot Friends T-Shirt.
When you’re not at TruffleTowers, what do you like to do?
I like to work out when I can, got to the cinema and sometimes go for a few cocktails or a beer.
Name three things you like….
I like BBQ’s in the summer with a cold beer or some cider, I like to go to gigs and festivals but don’t get to go as much as I used to, I like to watch films and spend time looking up movie news.
.
Name three things you don’t like….
Some of the main things I don’t like are liver, broad beans, and those people who don’t give you space to get off the train before they try and pile on. Makes no sense!
.
What were your favourite three films as a kid?
I had more than three but the one’s I repeatedly watched the most were probably the original Star Wars trilogy, Rocky 4, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles.
.
Who is your idol?
I don’t really have one specific idol, maybe if anyone Bruce Lee.
.
Who is the last band you saw live?
The last band I saw was Mariachi El Bronx, they are American hardcore punk band The Bronx mariachi style side project.
.
If you could go anywhere in the world, where would you go?
I’d like to see more of America, it’s such a big place with so many places to visit. I’d also like to go to China and maybe New Zealand.
.
Which iconic TV/Film car would you most like to own?
Knightrider was my favourite TV show when I was a kid so its got to be the Pontiac trans am.
What music are you listening to at the moment?
Volbeat has pretty much been on repeat since I heard them last year, also found a band called the Bombay royal recently which I love, and I’ve just started listening to the new The Darkness album.
.
If someone wrote a biography about you, what do you think the title should be?
“It was alright”
.
If you won the lottery, what would you do with the money?
The first thing I’d do would be buy a house, then give some to friends and family. After that maybe buy a classic car like a Mustang or something and then I’d probably book a holiday.
.
So there you have it folks! Stay tuned for plenty more staff insights and discover even more names and faces from inside Truffle Towers. See you next time! xoxo

“Oh… My… Gawd!” New Friends T-Shirts Now In!

So no one told you life was gonna be this way. Your job’s a joke, you’re broke, your love life’s D.O.AAAAAAA!

Even just hearing (or reading) these iconic lyrics sends us right back to the mid-90s and early 00’s! Getting to see the gang do their thing at central perk long before ‘banter’ became a thing and just being…well…friends was all you needed to have fun was such a weekend highlight.

Friends really helped to capture and define this era and sooo many of us were just hooked on their weird and wonderful lives. Through all the craziness, highs and lows, we all (if secretly) wanted to be a part of their lives. Hell, if you watched enough of it you probably did feel part of their lives!

To help show off some love for this classic show and all that it gave us, we’ve just snapped up some amazing Friends T-Shirts and vests inspired by our personal hero Joey.

Check em out…

11 Things We All Miss About FRIENDS 11 Years On…

Can you believe it?! Today back in 2004 saw the last ever episode of cult hit show FRIENDS hit our small screens. We’re starting to feel old now!

There was just so much to love about this show, from its quick one liners, amazing physical comedy, totally natural friendship between the cast and the sometimes deep story lines in there. It really had the lot! To help jog some memories and perhaps rekindle some of that old love for these amazing characters and moments, we thought we would pop together some of the very best things about this show that we probably all miss even today.

Sit back and enjoy our 11 Things We All Miss About FRIENDS…

1 – The classic intro.

2 – Ross and Rachel’s will they….won’t they.

3 – The Flashbacks to the oh-so painful past.

4 – “We were on a BREAK!”.

5 – Joey just being Joey.

6 – Joey and Chandlers bromance.

7 – The amazing guest stars.

8 – Phoebe’s weird and wonderful songs

9 – The moments FRIENDS got too real.

10 – Chandlers ermm… jokes.

11 – Tom Selleck’s mighty moustache.

With sooooo much to love about this iconic show, hopefully we’ve inspired you to bust our your DVD collection or to maybe just flick on over to catch some of their re-runs and start feeling some nostalgia love today.

There are still plenty of ways to show off your FRIENDS love though! Thankfully nostalgia is our game and we’ve got some amazing Friends memorabilia ready for you to snap up. Take a peep at some of our faves including Central Perk mugs, Friends T-Shirts and more….
