Fashion: Accessorize A/W Lingerie

In the week I always think it's good to set aside an evening for some downtime and relaxation. I like to get home from work, run a bubble bath, zone out of social media and pick up a good book or magazine. This evening's choice of read is going to be Porter magazine, a girl can wish huh? I hate to hear the decline of print magazines, although the internet is fantastic isn't it nice to sometimes pick up a physical copy and have a flick through? The Porter subscription is currently 40% off at the moment just in case you're looking for a good excuse...

So I've got to talk about the gorgeous lingerie set that is nonchalantly placed alongside my magazine, isn't it gorgeous? The perfect combination of lace and burgundy for the upcoming winter season. I adore the bralet style and can't wait to wear it underneath a white shirt with a subtle peek of the eyelash lace.

Outfit: Forever21 Oversized Blanket Scarf

As much as I'm missing the Florida heat I'm so excited to get stuck into Autumn! I love this time of year, not only for for fashion but the excitement of halloween, bonfire night, Christmas and just general festive mischief. It's definitely my favourite season and I'm more than happy to snuggle up in a big blanket scarf, plus I can eat as many minstrels as I want because...layers. 

I picked up a few of these items whilst I was in the States. We visited one of their infamous outlet malls and the reductions were just insane. I definitely underestimated how good the shopping would be and wished I'd left more room in my suitcase! I did come back with some great little gems though including this Kate Spade bag and Forever21 scarf. I couldn't find it on the UK site but if it comes in stock I will link it up for ya'll. 

As it's Sunday I'm off to chill with Netflix (no really), more from me soon!

Travel: The Wizarding World Of Harry Potter

One of the main reasons I was only too happy to return to Florida for a summer holiday was to visit the Wizarding World of Harry Potter. Growing up I was part of the Harry Potter generation, reading the books, awaiting the arrival of the next in the series and almost passing out with excitement at the production of a film series. I was (and still am) a big fan of Harry Potter. Albeit I'm slightly less obsessed than my former 12 year old self but I still love to watch the films at Christmas and I always feel a sense of nostalgia and happiness.

Although we went at the very end of September and into October, it was still SO busy. Universal Studios & Islands of Adventure (where Harry Potter is split into two) weren't too bad in terms of queues but the Wizarding World was full on. That didn't stop us from having an amazing time visiting Hogsmeade, Diagon Alley and to my surprise, Knockturn Alley (set in a dark hidden walkway)! The Escape From Gringotts ride was truly amazing but trumped by Harry Potter And The Forbidden Journey. This ride was insane. Using groundbreaking technology the ride makes you truly feel like you're flying over the Quidditch pitch, around Hogwarts and into the Forbidden Forest. I've never experienced anything like it but I was blown away.

As the ride is split into two parks you have to have a ticket for Universal Studios & Islands of Adventure but most people buy a combo ticket anyway. You can also catch the Hogwarts Express to take you from one side of the park to the other which I thought was really cool! Everything is so thought through with an immense amount of detail, I really felt like I was strolling through Hogsmeade. Aside from the actors rather questionable 'British' accents but hey.

I can't even imagine how busy this place is in the peak of summer but for any Harry Potter fan I would truly recommend trying to take a visit here. It's a once in a lifetime experience and one that I'm really glad I've done.

Be Right Back!

Posting will be a little non existent for the next week or so as I'm finally heading off to the USA! I didn't want the added stress of trying to schedule posts or spend any time on Macbook whilst I'm out there but I can't wait to share my adventures on here when I'm back! I'm absolutely buzzing to go back to Universal Studios AND this time The Wizarding World of Harry Potter will be there! AHH! I'll still be on Instagram (naturally) so find me @tillyjayne_ to keep up with my American adventures! Back soon!
