LEGO Mosaic

Have you ever wondered what you’d look like as LEGO ? If you didn’t know my website before, chances are you’ve probably landed here googling “LEGO Mosaic”. I got my LEGO Mosaic, at Leicester Square Store in London. I thought it would be fun, to share my experience of the LEGO Mosaic.


I headed into the LEGO store and went up stairs. The Mosaic maker is beside the tills. I went to the tills and asked if I could buy the LEGO Mosaic and paid. 


I then went over to the Mosaic Maker. There was no one waiting, so it was nice not feeling rushed or awkward getting my photo. There was a worker watching it. She was really nice and said it takes 3 photos, but she could reset it as many times as I wanted. It’s set the same as a passport machine, except they have a little LEGO figure where the camera is. It looks funny, like the little LEGO man is taking your photo. The first set of photos I done 3 different poses. I didn’t think it looked like “me”. The second set of photos, I was more happier with. The worker offered to reset it again, but I didn’t want to risk it incase I didn’t get as good photo. 


I clicked the photo I liked. It gave me options to filter it. The photo looked different each filter, I clicked on. I opted for the original photo, although am not sure how how LEGO has my face gray and I have a lighter colour forehead ? Haha. Also I have 1 black LEGO on my lip.



It was fun doing the LEGO Mosaic. It’s not something you can do everyday. It costs £99.99 for the LEGO Mosaic. It is expensive for what it is, but I think when it’s something you can’t get somewhere it’s worth the money.

New York City Lego


I bet you never thought I'd be writing about Lego. Last year I met David and I think he's fried of my brain, with his Lego hauls he posts online. Me being Danielle, I like buying things in the name. Am going through a phrase of buying everything in the name of New York. I saw Lego has a New York City Lego set.

As I've just came back from New York, am still in American time zone. I've been so awake at night, since I've got back. To make use of my time being awake at night I bought the New York lego set and sat up late trying to build it.  

Where do I begin ? I was looking through all the bags for ages, struggling to find each piece. That makes sense to why David has posted photos of his Lego, separated into bowls. He's not that daft. Then when I was picking up the Lego, the Lego is tiny pieces. The Lego was flying out my hand and shooting across the room. I think I spent more time searching for Lego that flew out my hands, than I did building it.

I got to the World Trade Center and got the first section no problem. Then it went to plot. The second section, the panels weren't matching with Lego. I took it apart and tried building it back 3 times. It was like building my Ikea desk and drawers all over again, trying to follow the step by step instructions. I always thought Lego was using your imagination, not following instructions. Where is the fun in following instructions ?.

The easiest section was the Flatiron building. All I had to do was layer the same shape of Lego, one on top of another. 

I might have been to the top of the World Trade Center in person, but not in the Lego world. Guys this is my first ever Lego set, so don't be mean to me haha.
