Off to Hogwarts – School Haul!!!

So, as I’m sure is the case for many of you guys, I’m off to university for the first time this month (which is incredibly scary if you ask me!). As such, today we went on a shop to get some bits in preparation. Mainly cleaning products and bed linens! As I’ve heard that most things you buy/use as a student get ruined we tried to keep everything we bought fairly cheap! I think we did pretty well!
We bought a load of cleaning products from poundworld which I know some people may think it’s really cheap but or the most part it’s branded products and they’re £1 each!!! Can’t really go wrong there can you?
We spent about £15 on stuff for me so I should be set- especially as I will be sharing a bathroom with my fellow housemates 😛

I also managed to get a toasted sandwich maker in Argos for £4.54 and got it insured for an extra 99p which will cover me fir 3 years should I break it/drop it (fairly likely!) I love toasties so this will be good for easy meals 🙂

Primark were doing a deal on back to college bed stuff so we also got a thick duvet for under £8, mattress protector (good knows who’s slept in my dorm before me!), two fitted sheets, two pillowcases and a duvet set! All of this came to less than £25! So I’m pretty set for most stuff!

I’ve already done some kitchen shopping in ikea (genuinely one of my favourite shops, especially their food ;)!) and I got another duvet set there!

Let me know whether you’ve managed to find any bargains and what you’re plans for uni are?

HP Studio Tour

Sorry in advance for the long post and photo dump, but I had lots to talk about!
Hello all!
Yesterday I went, along with my family to the Warner Bros Studio Tour to see the Making of Harry Potter tour!
It was absolutely amazing and the sheer amount of detail included in every prop, set piece and costume was incredibly overwhelming!
I went somewhat dressed for the occasion in my pastel Deathly Hallows t-shirt worn with my mint jeans and studded flats. I would definitely recommend wearing comfortable shoes for the tour as our tour started at 5:30pm and we left about 9:30pm- but the guides said some people can spend up to 7/8 hours going around! There is so much to see!
If you live in the UK, particularly in the South East as I do this is a MUST go to for ANYONE who is a fan of the films or just the franchise in general.
Now I didn’t take all that many photos on my phone- but took about 500 pictures on my camera so I will add some more later!
If there is anything in particular that you want to see from the tour please let me know and I will try and post a picture of it!

Another thing that I’m getting excited about is the Opening Ceremony for the London 2012 Olympics which starts at 9pm tonight!
I saw some clips from the dress rehearsal on the BBC website and it looks amazing! Can’t wait to see what they have in store for us!
So far current rumours include:
– NHS nurses
– British countryside activities
– livestock!
– and of course…RAIN! Because it just wouldn’t be British without some rain(!)

Let me know if you are planning to go to the WB studio tour or what you thought if you’ve been!
Also- what are you most looking forward to in the Olympics?
