Katy sported the ring after playing her sell out California Dreams Tour @ The Motorpoint Arena in Sheffield and it turns out it was one of our lovely customers Becky who gave it to her. Yup – Becky was lucky enough to have won a meet and greet with Katie before the show during which she gave Katy the ring who loved it so much, she had actual tears in her eyes!
Even more excitingly, Katy herself then tweeted saying..
Yup, the singer instantly adorned her finger with ring and let the world know how much she loved it via Twitter! Cute or what!
A big thank you to Becky for spreading the TruffleShuffle love to one of our favourite pop princesses – follow her on twitter here!
And you can of course get the exact same ring as loved by Katy here for £16.50! Handmade with love, each individual bean and slice of toast has been expertly crafted to create a truly special piece of jewellery which we know you’ll love just as much as Katy!
Another modern day movie adaption of one of our favourite retro cartoons is headed our way, this time it’s the turn of The Smurfs!
The last film was ‘The Smurfs and the Magic Flute’, which came out in 1976 so this new film has been a long time coming! This time though, instead of the traditional cartoon style which we’re all used to, the characters have been given a modern makeover and are starring as 3D CGI animated models which has come as a bit of a shock to the Smurf fans here at TruffleShuffle! Have a look at the trailer below and see for yourself…
The new movie is due for release in the UK on August the 10th but just came out over in America this last weekend which has given us the chance to see what the critics think before deciding whether or not to shell out on tickets! Having read some of the reviews from bloggers etc though, it seems as though the overwhelming response hasn’t been that great. Reviewers on Rotten Tomatoes have said “If you remember the characters fondly, this theatrical version will do little to enhance that memory…” and “[A] relentlessly witless and cynical children’s movie packed with potty jokes, product plugs and double-entendres along the lines of “What the Smurf?”” , although there is no major praise for the film there are still a few people who think it’s good to see the Smurfs back and they can be quite sweet. General consensus seems to be that this new version lacks the cool and cute charm of the original cartoons and is strictly for kids (not kids at heart, like us!) Damn!
With that in mind, perhaps the coolest thing to come out of this new movie is Katy Perry’s amazing Smurfette dress that she wore to the American premiere. She looked amazing showing off a new blonde hairstyle (no doubt a homage to Smurfette whom she voiced for the new film) and even managed to out Smurf the real deal on the red carpet!
If Katy has inspired any of you guys to add some Smurf magic to your wardrobe, check out some of the great tees we have on the site for a more subtle way of showing your appreciation! My personal favourite has to be the tee that’s accusing Papa Smurf of being a hipster – he’s suddenly gotten a lot cooler in my eyes! There are also some fab Smurfette designs available so you ladies can channel the cartoon cutie and steal Katy’s style!
Back to the movie though, we’re curious as to what you guys think of yet another remake? Will any of you be venturing out to the cinema to catch some Smurfs action? And if there are any long term Smurf fans, what do you think of their radical new makeover? Let us know!
