Harry Potter Studio Tour! London, 24th April 2013

I have grown up with Harry Potter, with each book being released respective of my age and school year at the time. Harry Potter is part of my teen years, and always will be. I am amazed at how HP has blown up over the years, being close to many people and their hearts. J.K. Rowling is amazing and should be so proud of her creation. I don't think anyone can match what she has created, every detail and every story full of courage, hope, love and many inspiring messages. She has created a world that is imaginable. The ultimate escapism comes with Harry Potter, following the life of a young boy going through life and the battles that life throws at him. Yesterday was amazing and definitely a day I would like to relive and visit again and again.

 I went along to the Harry Potter Studio Tour in London on the 24th of April 2013. HP came to life, and everything was so real and "there". All the years of films, waiting for releases  loving the characters became something I could physically see. The love and art that has gone into creating the HP experience is unimaginable  and I kept telling myself how amazed I was that this all came from one lady. I was in awe for the whole tour and trying to capture the moment by taking hundreds of pictures. This is an experience I believe you have to see for your own eyes, whether you are a major fan or just love the films, you'll be amazed at how hard the whole team worked to create the ultimate mystical experience that will blow you away.

 I would love to share some photos with you which I took on the day! I am not going to say too much, because in all honesty it will not capture the true feeling.

If you ever get the chance to visit this magical place, I hope you grab it with both hands!

See you all soon,


Harry Potter Studio Tour!

Just a quick message to say I went to the HP studio Tour in London and was blown away! Anyone else been? I shall update you on it all over the next few weeks!

 Hope everyone is well!

Macadamia Appreciation!

 My poor hair is put through a lot, in all honesty. Not only does it see the bleach every few weeks, but it also has to battle with my never ending hair styling changes where I blow dry, straighten, curl or crimp that hair into submission. This is why it's important for me to take care of my hair once in a while and thank it for still being there after all the long term abuse it has suffered. 

 I recently discovered Macadamia hair care products. The price tag is not exactly budget, but sometimes I am a firm believer of you get what you pay for. My hair needed loving, so I was willing to splash out on their nourishing leave-in cream. This product cost £18.75 for 300ml, and is available at many outlets and hair branches around the UK. I actually think that is really good value considering cost-per-usage and the fact that it has babied my hair into soft, manageable locks. I purchased this product with my own money, which I feel is vital in getting an honest review out of something.

  After washing my tresses, I have been lovingly applying this leave in conditioner in after brushing, and doing what it says on the bottle. Simply leaving it. And it works. It's as simple as that. My hair is prone to knots, and if there have been any particular tough ones I'd just slick the cream on and the knot would come out a lot easier without stressing my poor hair too much! 

 The company has a whole range of products to suit every individual and their needs, from styling to caring. These people really know what they are talking about!

Has anyone else tried these products? What do you think? 

I am definitely a convert! 

Check out their site:

"The discovery of Macadamia and Argan oil as a powerful therapeutic combination was a revelation and provided the ideal foundation on which a totally new hair care concept could be based. The oils delivered on every conceivable level; hair benefited from unparalleled rejuvenation, anti-frizz control, manageability and shine. And above all else the oils, known for their health-giving properties over many centuries, actively improved the structure, strength and health of hair both inside and out! This transformation led to the creation of a collection with the oil combination at its heart, which has now become internationally renowned. Formulated with natural ingredients and rich botanicals, and with a distinctive boutique style and signature fragrance, the formulations are opulent and lavish. To present this new discovery, a potent combination of brand design, prestige packaging and merchandising have resulted in a new and exciting brand environment that has resonated with the world´s hairdressers´ and their clients.

And herein lies the secret to its success. The styling collection and introduction of Flawless and StraightWear are testimony to a brand in pursuit of its own dreams.

A clutch of highly coveted Launchpad awards for Best Oil and Curl Enhancer are among the gongs accumulating in Macadamia´s trophy cabinet!"
