Harry Potter Hogwarts Crest Light

Like many families we are big fans of the Harry Potter books and films, but there is also some great spin off merchandise available for people who just cannot get enough of the Harry Potter phenomenon!

The Harry Potter Hogwarts Crest Light from Paladone (RRP £19.99)* is a brilliant buy for anyone who is mad on the schoolboy wizard and it is suitable for young and old fans alike. The light features the symbols of all four houses of Hogwarts; Gryffindor, Hufflepuff, Ravenclaw, and Slytherin, and the crest also includes the famous school motto in Latin across the bottom – ‘Draco Dormiens Nunquam Titillandus’, which translates as ‘Never Tickle a Sleeping Dragon’. Made from acrylic the lamp is not easily broken and it looks lovely, even when not lit. Once lit it however it looks even more fabulous.

Lush Boxing Day Haul 2015 – Part One

This year’s Lush Boxing Day sale proved to be even more stressful than last year, as the website was completely swamped by Lush fanatics, eager to get their hands on bargainous bath bombs and limited edition favourites before they sold out – with a massive 50% saving on all their Christmas stock who could blame them?! In fact for a lot of customers it proved impossible to make a purchase and Lush took the brave step of pulling the site and, a first for them, extended the sale beyond the usual one day.

Luckily I was prepared to have a battle on my hands and with my finger poised on the refresh button and a lot of persistence I managed to make an order on Boxing Day and I’m so excited to share my haul with you today!
