Final year is stressful. As a result I seem to have developed a serious case of worrying. 

I find myself worrying about everything. Will my grades be good enough for a first, am I good enough to get a job after uni, even worrying about how I write emails. That's just to name a few.

It's ridiculous and I've decided it's down to lack of sleep. I cant sleep as I'm too busy thinking about everything in life, which causes me to be over tired and I worry even more! 

Therefore I'm implementing the motto to my life of 'Worry Less, Sleep More'.

How does everyone else cope with the stress of final year and the worry that comes with it?

Braid Envy

I sat down this week to watch The Great British Bake Off for Sport Relief and found myself with braid envy.

It all started with Bonnie Wright's double braid.

So simple yet so pretty!

However, the bar was then raised by Victoria Pendleton's slightly more intricate style.

I can manage a french and dutch braid, yet never really venture outside of my comfort zone. I'm very much a hair down person, yet I'm definitely considering delving into the braid hype.

I think it's time to get practicing...

Hogwarts in the Snow

This week I went to the Warner Brothers Studio Tour - The Making of Harry Potter.

I've been before, however Mum and I felt the need to go again to see Hogwarts in the Snow.
I managed to take over 250 photos, so thought I'd share a few of my favourites with you.

The tour begins in a comfy cinema room where you watch a short film about the making of the Harry Potter films, really getting you in the mood for the tour.

Before you know it Dumbledore is greeting you in The Great Hall, surrounded by cauldrons of fire and taking in all of the little details you never really noticed in the films.

Upon leaving The Great Hall, even more excitement awaits you.

A Yule Ball

Ron's marvellous dress robes

and a chocolate feast!

You then get to delve into the fascinating world of hair, make up and costumes. 

Oh how I wish I could wear the Beauxbaton uniform.

We had a quick snoop around the Boys Dormitory.

Before relaxing in the Gryffindor Common Room.

I then realised I was running late for my meeting with Dumbledore.

So quickly hop-footed it over to his office with a bountiful supply of sherbet lemons. 

Where Dumbledore awarded me with my trophy.

It was then time for a visit to potions class, where I spent most of my time admiring the many jars that lined the walls.

A trip to the Weasley's was a must.

I particularly like the look of those Cheeri-owls.

Now this is my favourite part of the entire tour. I'll try not to bombard you with pictures.

Just look at all the detail!

And my personal favourite, U-No-Poo, the constipation sensation that's gripping the nation!

After all that excitement it was time for a Butterbeer.

It then absolutely tipped it down, so there was time for a quick snap of Privet Drive before rushing inside.

I always feel everyone looks a little worse for wear in this section.

I mean poor Bathilda. 

Although how cute is this baby thestral?

My second favourite part was just around the corner.

Welcome, to Diagon Alley.

It was time to admire the true effort and dedication it takes to create the World of Harry Potter.

Before the real showstopper, Hogwarts in the snow.
