Harry Potter Studio Tour Tips 2018

After a little wait here I am getting my thoughts on to paper (so to speak) on the fun of the Warner bros studio tour I went to last September (2017) – it’s probably impossible to find words good enough for just HOW great it was to visit as such a big harry potter fan, but it is amazing and I will tell you lots about it!

When we went, the studio had an extra exhibition of the wizarding wardrobes – it often has an added theme so its well worth looking out for them in case something especially suits you. The wizarding wardrobe meant that the place had extra costumes used in the movies in and I found it fascinating!!

Hygge times from March – enjoy the spring

Here is my Hygge times – well some of them – which happened as March unfolded, as we enter April it is spring showers and bursts of sun, make the most of appreciating every season and try to look for what you love about it.

During March one of my absolute favorite things has been my new MUG- an actual mug for my drinks themed to RED NOSE DAY.

Red nose day, for those who don’t know, is a charity fund-raising day which happens every two years in the UK, and it is supported by comedians hence the red nose.

Life with Zozie January 2017

Hi all, so good to catch up with you and I thought today I would do a bit of a ‘my latest’ type post, it feels like a good way to say hello and get you up to date with some of what is running around my head.

January is often not an easy month is it, I LOVE Christmas and as such although start the new year with a fresh start mentality I think it still is not the positive boost to me that November and December is, in fact I love Autumn so much and Winter can sometimes feel not as fun BUT I am determined to embrace every single season and its joys and what I love BEST about winter is the COSY aspect. 

It is the season for warmth (even if its easy to feel a bit chilly) and for hot drinks (same in Summer though!) and for blankets see Crochet Fun HERE and in my case ‘slankets’ … more on that later.

I wanted to tell you what I am up to, reading, craft and more this January .

For starters…

Newt Scamander from Fantastic Beasts as Doctor Who?

I love the Harry Potter Books and as such was keen to read the book of ‘Fantastic Beasts and where to find them’ by J K Rowling.

At Christmas I was lucky enough to be given the book, a lovely deep blue and gold look lettering, hardback, and it is of the screen play so reads in a very unusual way.I had high hopes.

Just finished reading it!  and can really see ‘Newt’ as a Doctor Who…
