Instagramming In May

So another month has passed and I completed what I set out to do in last months Instagram post! I set myself a little challenge to post one photo everyday for the month and I did it! Yay!! So here is a little catch up of what I have been up to this month!

Some blue skies! Flo enjoying her view - A Revlon 3 for 2 offer! I could not resist them! See the swatches here - I had two lazy cats that morning! Hehe - I got a new bag from River Island! At first I wasn't sure, but now I love it! - Pretty Alice! Love my little black cat! - Monday night pub quiz and we won too!

A cute quote inside my Erin Condren Planner - On the hunt for houses!! No luck yet, but keeping our fingers crossed that something will come up soon! - A drive through the countryside - Flo has such huge whiskers!! Hehe, my pretty girl - A OOTD for you girls! All from Monsoon! - A new Accessorize palette! A review with looks will  be coming soon!

A gloomy and wet day... Alice was not too impressed! - I love my Abercrombie and Fitch Hoodie, so bright for spring/summer! - Playing my 3DS after work. Its onto Professor Layton and the Lost Future now! - Packing for my little trip to London! - Look what Robert and I found! A "Jen" Diet Coke!! We actually found two that weekend, both in England! No Jens in Scotland so far! - We nipped into the Trafford Centre on the way home, for a TGI's no less! Yum!

I Can't Believe...

Hi girls!

I am linking up today with the lovely Robin from The Sunshine Diary! I have been meaning to link up with her for ages and I finally am! Here we go...!

I can't believe... that we are nearly in June!?! How has this happened! We have only got one month to go and 2013 will be half way through! That is just crazy. I don't know what it is; getting older, working all the time, time just seems to fly by so fast nowadays! It sill feels like it should be April! Well at least Scotland is getting some sunny weather!

I can't believe... How hilariously funny The Hangover 3 was. Robert and I went to see it on Friday and we totally could not control our laughter! Haha, you have all got to go and see it!! Oh and here is a little extra bit after some credits, which was probably the funniest part of the film. I really wish they didn't have to end it with the trilogy. They could easily make a fourth film, with what the ending was! 

I can't believe... (sticking with the Hangover theme) that the first two films made $500,000,000 (that's 500 million) each! Those first two films made a billion dollars!! How crazy is that!

I can't believe... how hard it is to find Robert and I a house! There is just so  little at the moment for sale and we want to stay in a good area, so there is little for sale! We are just desperate to get our own place, but I guess patience is key when buying the right house!! Its just so annoying!!

I can't believe... how addicted I am to Youtube at the moment!! Its bad, bad I tell you!

I can't believe... how soon I'm going back down to London! This time next week I'm going to be so excited!! I'm going to a huge concert in Wembley Stadium! Its going to be awesome! I have the hotel all booked and we have worked out a schedule (sort of, hehe) and I am driving my Jenson there and back! There might also be a night out in London involved too! Fun fun!

What can you not believe at the moment? Go say hi to the lovely Robin too!!

30 Day Snap!

Hi girls!!!

Louise from Sprinkle of Glitter has created a little challenge for herself and for her followers to join in too!! Its called the 30 Day Snap and everyday in June she will be posting a photo up on her blog.

For more information, then have a look at her post introducing the challenge here! I think it will be such a fun thing to do and also hard, but I am going to try it. There will be some good photos for sure!! As I said in my post Instagramming In April, I said I was going to post one photo everyday in May, and so far this has been done! So I think after doing this (albeit somewhat easier to do on Instagram) I should be able to do it here on my blog!!

I am also going to be doing any other posts that I want throughout the month, such as any hauls, any exciting adventures (which there will be!) or any other posts I feel like doing! So June is going to be a big month for my blog! Lets see if I can complete the challenge! It starts on Saturday! Let me know if any of you girls are taking part too!!

Harry Potter & Westfield Haul!

Hi girls!

So for any of you who want to see the things I picked up at the Warner Brother Studios, here is what I bought!

Now obviously you have got to get the obligatory Honeydukes sweets! I have yet to  try the Bertie Botts Every Flavour Beans, when I do I will let you know how I get on... Fingers crossed for no snot or sick flavour!! I also got a big lollipop, which is yummy and I of course got a chocolate frog!! By the way the frog inside is huge! Its more like a toad, oh and I got a Rowena Ravenclaw card inside!

My dad had bought me a souvenir guide book when he bought the tickets, so this was nice being able to get one!

This book is awesome!! I have only looked through the first couple of pages, but it has loads of information and images about how they made the films magic!! I highly recommend you get this! Oh and I have finally got my acceptance letter to Hogwarts.... 12 years late I guess, but I have one!! You get loads of extras inside the book too, like the acceptance letter, a Marauder's map, a potions textbook and loads more!! 

I also had to pick up this mug, which has a magic secret! When you put your hot drink in it, little footprints appear around the mug! Quite cool, I will show you once I drink out of it!

Of course I kept my Butterbeer tanker,although I really didn't like Butterbeer at all. The taste was so strange and I didn't like the fizzyness of it. It was a very strange concoction a mixture of Irn Bru and Cream Soda. So yea try it if you dare!!

P.s. I have no idea why a part of my taker is pink, I suspect it is just because my walls are painted pink and it just looks that way for that reason! Hehe.

Look I got a Hogwarts keyring!!! 

I also just had to get a pygmypuff keyring too... Its so cute!!! 

My pygmypuff also got an admirer while I was taking the photos.... I hope she likes her new friend, naughty Alice!!

That was everything I got from Harry Potter, but seriously I could have bought everything!! That shop is totally the best shop ever!! I was going to buy a wand, but then decided against it. What good is it going to be if it doesn't actually do magic? I would keep trying to wave it around and then it would never work and that would make me sad! Hehe. So I will leave you with me wishing that the Sorting hat I tried on would actually start speaking, I think it would make me a Hufflepuff!!

Ok so now onto a few things I picked up at Westfield! I went into River Island and bought two tshirts (obviously, I tell you I'm obsessed!), they are both really casual and made quite long and baggy. I just had to get the New York City one though!! They were both £15.

I took a trip into Gilly Hicks, oh how I love that shop!! I bought a sweet blue tshirt, which is so cute and also loads of new underwear and two new bras, unsure whether you would want to see that, but if you do then let me know!!

What do you think of my purchases? If you have been to the studios, I would love to know what you bought there!!!

The Making Of Harry Potter!

HI girls!

There have been a lot of posts on the studios at Leavesden, but hopefully you won't mind another!! It was honestly one of the best days ever!! I have been a huge Harry Potter fan since I can remember and would read the books constantly and I have to say that the films were epic!! Since the Warner Brother Studios opened, I have been wanting to go so much! I am so glad that my parents got me two tickets to go for my Christmas. My dad said he had not idea why he booked my tickets for May, but it was definitely worth the wait!!

So we got to the studios at 2pm, which was early as our tour was booked for 3pm. I had been told that we should definitely go into the gift shop first to have a look around, so this was exactly what we did! It was the best shop ever!! Any Harry Potter fan would be in heaven! I could have bought everything... Thankfully I remembered that we still had the tour to do half an hour later. After getting the digital guide (which has loads more information about the studios and is basically an Ipod, I highly recommend getting it!!), we asked the lady at the start of the tour if we could go in now even though we are early and she let us go right through!! I won't talk much about the tour as I could just go on and on and on and on about it!!! So here are a lot some photos of the tour!!

Sorry for the photo overload... The tour was amazing and I hope that if you are a Potter fan you will go and visit this someday, because it was just unbelievable! Everything I had wished it would be and so much more!! The gift shop is amazing and of course I bought a few things.... Hehe! Robert and I spent over 4 hours there, it was a great day!!!

Do you love Harry Potter?!
