Harry Potter Studio Tour Haul

Following on from my review of the Harry Potter Studio Tour, in this post and video I want to show you the merchandise I bought in relation to it.

Up until now, I only owned the audiobooks, the Ultimate Edition Blu-rays (which replaced earlier DVD version of the films I had), and downloads of the film soundtracks. So this is the first time I’ve really got into buying Harry Potter themed stuff apart from that – with one slight exception that I’ll mention later, but basically I’ve never bought any other merchandise before.

There’s so much to buy in relation to the tour, so I did end up spending quite a bit. But it’s worth it to get some unique and special souvenirs. Some of the items I bought at the attraction on the day, and some I bought later from their online store, because there was no way I could carry everything I wanted home from the tour, and there were a few things I couldn’t find in the gift shop there anyway. So I hope you enjoy seeing all the things that I bought.

Christmas Q&A

MERRY CHRISTMAS!!! 🙂

I hope everyone’s having a wonderful time, with all the fun and food and festivities that Christmas brings!

If you’re working to keep services and utilities running, or you’re volunteering to help out those less fortunate e.g. the disabled, elderly, homeless, etc, then thank you so much for your efforts and commitment, as you don’t get as much gratitude as you deserve for it.

And if you’re not having a nice Christmas for whatever reason, then you have my sympathies, and I hope you’re able to find some support or company to help get you through the day. There are lots of options if you need someone to talk to.

For me, this Christmas is hugely significant, as it’s my first proper one as a resident of London. So I wanted to mark it with a couple of special posts.

Yesterday, therefore, I made an extensive post about my Christmas music collection, following the advent calendar music posts I’ve been making on social media this month.

And now today’s post is a Christmas Q&A , all about how I celebrate and enjoy Christmas, and I’ve also made a video to go with it. Everyone reading this is welcome to answer the questions as well, I tag everyone who wants to do it. So I hope you enjoy reading my festive posts, and finding out about how I celebrate Christmas!

Meeting Fashioneyesta

If you’ve been following me for a while, you’ll know that one of my favourite Youtubers is Fashioneyesta, aka Emily Davison. And this Monday I actually got to meet her and spend the day with her, much to my delight. She’s now posted a wonderful vlog of the day on her FashioneyestaExtra channel, so I wanted to blog about it from my own perspective as well.

Off To The Palace

Summer’s here, the weather’s lovely and bright and hot, and so there’s no reason not to go out every weekend to see what the city has to offer. Especially when there are festivals and events on all the time too, there’s always something happening every week. A case in point is a weekend I spent at Alexandra Palace last month, where they had a couple of things going on. I’ll write more about it below, and link to all the videos I created, but here’s the Palace’s own video of highlights:

The VIP Daily Living Tag

There’s a new Visually Impaired Persons Tag doing the rounds at the moment, initiated by My Blurred World and Life of a Blind Girl, and Fashioneyesta has also responded to it at the time of writing. They’re all superb posts by superb bloggers, so they’re worth checking out. Although I’ve not been tagged myself, I’m going to jump on the bandwagon and join in anyway, as I do think they’re great questions. So hopefully nobody will mind. 🙂
