I turned 21 in January and hadย 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).ย 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?

Lily-Flame candles: Review

So, this may be a random topic but I confess that I am indeed a candle-holic who can’t be controlled. Candles make a room fill up with happiness and warmth and there are so many to choose from! Lily-Flame candles are beyond the best and are my absoluteย favourite, I would recommend these to anyone who enjoys a scented candle.

I currently own the Lily-Flame ‘Bluebell Forest’ and ‘Heather and honey’ which are both to die for. The scent will fill up a room just by opening the tin and will fill up an entire house when lit. They are said to burn for 35 hours each and are all made in Somerset, UK (yay!)

Okay, so my photos don’t do justice (I apologise) I have used these candles so the beautiful decor has melted away but when these are brand spanking new they look absolutely glorious with pretty colours and shapes. The candles are made by a small and hardworking team of candle makers and have been working hard since 1994! (They are older than me!) A cute little fact ~ Lily-Flame was the first company to produce candles in tins. It’s nice to know this as I have had other candles in tins and loved the idea but they are all copy cats!

Each candle is priced at ยฃ8.95 each and can be bought on their website or in a selection of shops which you can probably find online if you give it a search. I hope you enjoy candles too! see you soon.
