Harry Potter Studio Tour Haul

Hello Witches, Wizards, Muggles & No-Majs. 

I am back to do my Harry Potter Studio Tour Haul for all the magical goodies I picked up during my trip last week. If you have yet to read my post about my experience there then you can do so by click here; Harry Potter Studio Tour.

Before going to the Studio Tour I told myself I was just going to go ahead and buy whatever I fancied… that logic came from having such a crappy time at work lately and thinking I can spend my wages on things that will make me happy to come home to. I actually did really well at reigning myself in and not fangirling too much to buy every little thing.

So let’s see what magical goodies I got shall we?

Harry Potter Studio Tour

Hello Witches, Wizards, Muggles and No-Majs! 

On Tuesday I visited the greatest place on earth… The Harry Potter Studio Tour in Watford and it was phenomenal. It was the second time I have visited the studio tour, the first time was about six years ago and it did not have the Hogwarts Express, Forbidden Forest nor were you able to enter Privet Drive. So although it was my second time, it was more like my first once again.

Firstly getting to the tour was an experience. It took us about four hours to drive down and we had booked on for the 12:30 tour. They say the tour itself lasts three hours but you can stay for as long as it is open, due to having to drive back we left at 5:30 although I could have definitely stayed forever. Because I don’t want to ruin the tour for everybody I will only be including some of the pictures I took that day. However I have recently made a new Harry Potter dedicated Instagram where I will post more.
So go ahead and follow that for more Potter Goodness @swishandflick94.

to kill a kingdom

Title: To Kill a Kingdom by Alexandra Christo
Genre: YA Fantasy
Pages: 342

Synopsis

Princess Lira is siren royalty and the most lethal of them all. With the hearts of seventeen princes in her collection, she is revered across the sea. Until a twist of fate forces her to kill one of her own. To punish her daughter, the Sea Queen transforms Lira into the one thing they loathe most—a human. Robbed of her song, Lira has until the winter solstice to deliver Prince Elian’s heart to the Sea Queen or remain a human forever.

The ocean is the only place Prince Elian calls home, even though he is heir to the most powerful kingdom in the world. Hunting sirens is more than an unsavory hobby—it’s his calling. When he rescues a drowning woman in the ocean, she’s more than what she appears. She promises to help him find the key to destroying all of sirenkind for good—But can he trust her? And just how many deals will Elian have to barter to eliminate mankind’s greatest enemy?

So let’s get nosey…

April Wrap Up & Favourites

Hey Guys!

We are officially in May. It is May 4th tomorrow and let’s all gear up ready for the May the 4th be with you jokes… I’m so over them.
Each time I do a wrap up post, I always comment on how I can’t believe we are a month down and I just have to this time again because I can’t get over how time is going so fast. We are already on the 5th month in the year.

April was a weird month for me. I thought I was getting nothing done in terms of my blog because of deadlines and work but as I looked back to write this post I realized I actually did more than I thought so I guess it wasn’t so bad… I was rather MIA from my blog in April because like I said I had a bunch of deadlines and my next one is coming up soon as well actually. I also had to give a research paper at a conference through my university which was super stressful and scary but I did it! Yaaay. 

Other than that, there’s nothing really new in my life to note to you guys… other than I got glasses! I have been struggling with migraines and headaches ALOT lately so I went to the opticians last week and need to wear glasses for when i’m on the computer, in lectures, reading at a distance sort of thing. It is super weird having them, I’m not used to them yet but they are helping and my headaches and migraines have reduced dramatically since.

                    Lets take a look at my month and then my favourites shall we?…
