THE MAKING OF HARRY POTTER

For the longest time EVER, I have wanted to visit the Harry Potter studios. I am a huge Harry Potter fan and according to Buzzfeed I am, 29% Gryffindor, 28% Ravenclaw, 25% Slytherin and 18% Hufflepuff, although I personally think I identify most with Slytherin as I often do what is necessary. 

There is not much more to say other than I had a truly magical experience and for any Harry Potter enthusiasts out there, a trip to the Warner Bros Studios is a MUST!

PHOTO DIARY | THE LAST TWO WEEKS





If my instagram feed had not made it obvious, the last two weeks have been very eventful. The weekend before last, I was in Edinburgh then I returned to sixth form a few hours after I landed and two days later I was off to Brighton for less than 48 hours for a Geography field trip. Due to the cold weather, I needed to recover from a throat so I took the Friday off from sixth form. Saturday, my sister and I headed to Harry Potter world in Watford followed by shopping at INTU and to finish the weekend we headed up to Hitchin Priory gardens on Sunday to watch the fireworks. I have spent alot of money over the last two weeks and I think my bank account needs a year or two to recover. 

Now all the fun is over, I am back to my sixth form, revision, work, eat, sleep and repeat routine until the Christmas holidays.

48 HOURS IN EDINBURGH







If you follow me on Instagram or Twitter, then you will know that I spent last weekend in Edinburgh. We decided to fly rather than taking a train or driving up as it was only an hour and a half from London Luton Airport. Our flight was at 7am so we headed over to the airport at 5am and dawdled around duty-free to pass time. Conveniently, I ran out of my signature scent, YSL Black Opium, a few days before our trip so I treated myself to a large bottle, the discount was insane.

Our first day in Edinburgh was jam-packed. We visited Edinburgh Castle, Camera Obscura, Princes Street Gardens, Scottish National Museum, The Hard Rock Café, The Dome, St Giles Cathedral, Victoria Street, Scott Monument, Ross Foundation and Greyfriars Graveyard all within 11 hours before heading back to our hotel, The Marriot, to take full advantage of the hotel spa and unwind.

Sunday was our second and last day in Edinburgh. To start the day, we climbed to the top of Calton Hill which was a lot easier than I had anticipated. Despite being breathless by the time we got to the top, it was completely worth it, the view was incredible.

To pass time before our flights home, we took a tour of Edinburgh Dungeon, ate at a quirky café called Southern Cross near the station and wandered around the Fruit Market Gallery before jumping on a tram back to the airport.
