Harry Potter and the Cursed Child #keepthesecrets

Last week was finally time for me to see Harry Potter and the Cursed Child. This is the eighth story set in the Wizarding World and was created by JK Rowling for the stage especially.

Harry Potter studio tour – Part 3

We’re back in Hogwarts today, for the last part of the Harry Potter studio tour photo diaries.

This deserved a post to itself, hope you enjoy the photos… Embora tenham feito algumas alterações à visita aos…

I’m splitting the photo diary into three parts, following the tour order – hope you like it!  O…

Birthday Plans I’m not huge on birthday parties, and normally spend my birthday just hanging out with my parents and closest family back in Portugal. This year, however, I am staying in London, and having…
