My Harry Potter Birthday


I turned 21 in January and had been celebrating far too much for my own good! Harry potter is one of my favourite things, so naturally I made this a running theme for my birthday. I had a Harry potter themed party (I was Dobby) then I visited the Harry Potter studios. This is what I really wanted to talk about. The Harry Potter studios in London was like being trapped in a fantastic dream. It was an extremely chilly, foggy day and driving up towards the studios and seeing the huge signs was just as exciting as Disney Land had been. Walking into the studios was a bit difficult if I’m honest, I am not over exaggerating when I say that I couldn’t breathe properly, haha. (I’m such a silly sausage). As it was January, the Christmas decorations where still up and the place was covered in powdery white snow. Some of the costumes from ‘Fantastic Beasts’ were on display too.

When the tour guide asked if it was anyones birthday, my hand shot up right at the back and I smugly made my way up to the grand door and held onto it tightly (I may have never let go). Here I go.. Push Push Push. A sight for sore eyes greeted us as the door opened. The great hall in all its glory!

Below I will show you a few photos from my trip. Look out for potions class, Umbridge’s office and maybe even some ‘Sherbet lemon!’ (if you catch my drift..).

I, myself am a Hufflepuff. What houses are you guys in?



The Philosopher’s Stone



Harry Potter! This phenomenal series of stories from the wizarding world is truly a nostalgic adventure for me. I watched every film in the cinema and like to walk around wearing my Hogwarts dressing gown on a daily basis but I never seemed to cross paths with the books, which is appalling really. The books were released with a new look this year and flooded the shelves of every supermarket and book shop I entered. This new artwork is definitely different to the one’s I remember seeing in previous years and the bright colours drew me so i had to pick one up. I purchased the first book and read it quite quickly. The story really filled in gaps in the film which I would not have noticed otherwise. It’s so interesting to compare the characters to the actors as well! I feel like the book and film really go hand in hand, making an overall better experience as I can smile during the film as I remember the small details in the book that others won’t know! I am going to continue reading the rest of the series and look forward to completing what my child-self never did.

5/5 Stars – I really enjoyed it!
