Harry Potter Studio Tour

Move out of the way, children! True Harry Potter fan coming through!
I was lucky enough to be bought tickets to the Harry Potter Studio Tour which I visited last month.
The day brought out the child in me as I spotted scenes and props from one of my all time favourite movie series. 
Here are the best of my photographs. Don't look if you have tickets of your own!

Last month I visited London and indulged in a tourist day.
I live in Manchester so taking the trip South is always exciting, London is such a beautiful city and each time is never long enough.
We ran around Kensington in the glorious sunshine, munching on omelettes and peeking through Estate Agent windows at the properties available; should you have a cool 12 mil to spend.
How lucky that we caught the only warm weekend this year!   

The Natural History Museum

 The obligatory T-Rex skeleton photo.


Chocolate Festival at Waterloo

Teasing temptation when you've given up chocolate for Lent.

The London Eye
I had my first ever London Eye experience.
We chose the VIP pod; less people and champagne. Perfect!

The most enjoyable weekend taking in the sights.
The only thing I was missing is a bumbag.

Lucile London

Every girl needs exquisite, slightly naughty lingerie.
Lucile London uses the finest silk, chiffon and lace to create the most gorgeous designs. The brand's British heritage is held in high esteem as all their garments are designed and hand sewn in Great Britain.
The Northern Press Day was held at Epernay Champagne Bar in Manchester, which showcased the new range.
Rails of sumptuous hangers displayed delicate pieces from the Duchess of Warwick & The Queen of Spain. There were also adorable gift boxes with silk underwear inside.
I grabbed a few photos on my iPhone and altered them with Instagram.
