Harry Potter Haul: Updated

A few years ago I posted my Harry Potter Haul when Primark was just starting to do Harry Potter merch and I spent a lot of my Student Loan on it (sob, I’m getting so old). Anyway, of course, there is now so much Harry Potter stuff that Primark on Oxford Street has a whole section dedicated and decorated to it.

I was lucky enough to receive a LOT of Harry Potter merch for Christmas. So here is my new and updated Harry Potter haul!

Boggart as Snape Exclusive Funko Pop

Now, I have a confession to make in regards to this. While it was a present from my parents I ordered it because it was an exclusive and came from Australia but it is brilliant! I’m a big Funko collector and this was a perfect present.

Gryffindor Onesie & Knee High Socks 

This onesie is so, so fun! Now I can be a toasty little Gryffindor on the cold nights to come. Also, I’ll be rocking those knee high socks!

Hogwarts School Bag

My Sister got me this beauty. It’s absolutely stunning and you’d never guess that it was from Primark. It’s exactly what I think I’d use at Hogwarts.

Harry Mug & Hogwarts Shopper 

This mug is super cute andd I knew I wanted it as soon as I saw it, thankfully Mum found it first! Also this shopper is so useful it folds up to an absolutely tiny size but you can fit so much in.

Hogwarts Alumni Jumper 

The jumpers that Primark have been doing recently make up a good chunk of my wardrobe. Of course, I wanted this one so that I could seek out my fellow Witches and Wizards!

Hogwarts Notebook

My boyfriends Mum got me this beautiful notebook for Christmas, I’ve seen them a few times but never picked one up. It’s a good size and really great quality, I mean look at that crest!

Hedwig Pillow 

I have wanted this since I saw it on Instagram. It is so cute, incredibly fluffy and despite its shape, really comfortable. Bless my Mum and Nanna for carrying this all the way around London and home for me.

Hogwarts Make Up Bag

My sister is a wonderful human being for finding this for me. It’s also got a second bag within it which is really useful for brushes, which I also got from my sister (she’s trying to teach me how to use makeup).

Funko Plushies

These are SO CUTE. I opened these on Christmas day and squealed, I think they’re newish and I’ve been hunting for Hermione ever since with no luck! So damn cute.

The Prisoner of Azkaban Illustrated Edition 

The boy did good, the boy did very good this year.

Harry Potter – A History of Magic 

I was lucky enough to get tickets to go to the Harry Potter exhibit at the British Library (more info here). It was a wonderful exhibition but I’m SO glad this exists because you just can’t take everything in, now I can relive it!

Fantastic Beasts & Where To Find Them Illustrated Edition 

This came out back in November and was on my Christmas Wish List and it’s a beautiful companion to see another idea of what these creatures look like.

Lupin as Werewolf Limited Edition Pop Vinyl 

I have wanted this for sooooooooo long. This came out as a US exclusive on Hot Topic at first, before a limited quality were also at EMP but I missed them all. So I might have had to buy mine off of eBay, but I couldn’t not have it!

Gryffindor Jumper

This was in my local Primark in the sale for £5. I snatched this up it’s big and cosy as well as showing my house pride. I also got the matching leggings as an extra treat from my Mum!

What catches your eye from this haul or maybe you already have some of these pieces, let me know in the comments below!

Sunday Seven: My Christmas Wishlist

holidays

Can you believe it, we’re already in our first Sunday of December! The big day is only 21 days away and I could not be more excited! Now, my Mum is super organised, she asked me for a Christmas wishlist weeks ago (which meant I had to think fast), the conditions she had were that I wasn’t allowed to ask for any Pop Vinyls or Lush products (I go to the Lush sale on Boxing Day, last year I spent a little more than I planned). So this year I thought I would share with you seven things I popped on this list!

Reach For The Sky Toy Story jumper, Vans. 

I am a HUGE lover of Toy Story, it’s one of my all time favourite films. I saw this jumper in the collab between Disney and Vans and wanted it from that second.

Calvin Klein Underwear

Normally I’m not one for designer products BUT I received a black pair of these for my birthday this year and they are the most comfortable set of underwear I’ve ever owned. Comfort is key when it comes to underwear.

Great British Bake Off 2016 book

This was the first year I really got into Bake Off and I absolutely LOVED it. So, of course, I’ve added this to my list, especially as it’ll be the last one featuring Mary, Mel and Sue, *sob*.

Fantastic Beasts Screen Play 

This was a last minute addition after seeing Fantastic Beasts last week. I am obsessed with Harry Potter anyway, I loved the characters and this is an absolutely beautiful  cover.

Game of Thrones Monopoly 

I love monopoly, I’m loving making my way through the GoT novels so this is just something fun to have! Perfect for Winter 😉

Ron Weasley’s Wand

Of the golden trio I only have Ron’s wand to get. Currently, I have Harry, Hermione and Ginny’s wands so it seemed only right that I finally get Rons. I’m also hoping to add to my collection later with other Wands such as Newt Scamander and co.

In the Dark, in the Woods – Eliza Wass (Also known as The Crasswell Plot) 

This is one of a few books I’ve put on my wishlist, I’ve heard so many good things about this book and it’s known to be quite creepy!

What is on your Christmas wishlist? Leave in the comments below!

Happy Birthday Harry I owe you one!

I should start this post by saying that actually I owe J K Rowling one, as without her Harry would not exist. Like many of my generation I am a Harry Potter fan, although my dedication may be slightly bordering on obsessive. It’s funny because when I was 7 I wasn’t bothered by it, I didn’t understand the hype of all the movies. I think that changed when I picked up one of the books at some point. I fell in love with it, I read them all again and again and then I became obsessed. I have literally boxes and boxes of the Harry Potter stuff I’ve collected over the years. 

I don’t know what it is about those books that made me sit every summer and read each and every one cover to cover. I don’t know how J K Rowling managed to capture not only a few kids but the entire world with a slightly dorky hero, his lanky best friend and a know it all with a big heart. Actually no, as I write that I do know it’s because we could relate to them and growing up as much as I wanted to be a Ginny, I’ve always been and accepted that I am a Hermione and that’s okay. These books shaped me without me even realising and I love them so much they do not move from my parents house (I don’t even take them to uni in case they get damaged) and that feels odd. I was that geeky kid with her nose stuck in a book with a play want at her side trying to make her socks levitate (true story). I would pour over anything Harry Potter I could, went mad at Harry Potter Land USA then almost burst with pride at the Studio Tour.

I could write about Harry Potter and the world Jo created for pages and pages but I won’t.So to Harry and Jo, Happy Birthday and thank you so, so much.
