Fourteen years of obsessively living in an alternate reality, buying my first edition aged six, queuing at midnight year upon year, and ten books of fantasy have come down to tonight. I can't even begin to believe the final installment in the Harry Potter film series is released tomorrow/tonight. It was only too easy to say, "We still have the films," when the final book was published in 2007, and I sat reading it for a solid 14 hours. And if you haven't immersed yourself in the magical goodness that Jo Rowling and Hogwarts has to offer yet, it's never too late!

Wore my favourite playsuit today with some super-opaque tights. I went through a very long phase of favouring low denier tights, but I think my heart truly lies with fully black tights! I customised a white T-shirt from Topshop for the cinema tonight, I'm really happy with how it came out, despite dithering for ages over which quotes to use. I think I'll wear my chambray buttonthrough skirt or a pair of high-waisted shorts with it tonight though, was far too uncomfortable wearing a playsuit underneath, the materials just wouldn't sit properly together!

Today I ran errands with the Mamabear and we went for lunch at Harvester. I even found a wishbone in my meal, so I made a sneaky wish on that after breaking off the larger part with my brother. I also paid my first bill installment on the new house after being paid last week. Life, why are you so expensive?! Planning to chill and play a lot of Maplestory for the remainder of my day, although I just know Mum will force me into helping her clear out the spare room downstairs! Oh, and of course I'm going to watch the Deathly Hallows Pt.1 over dinner too!

  6. I also can't wait to see the film, it's going to be amazing like they all are! I'm super excited to watch it sometime in the next few weeks. I just can't believe it's the last one, it's sad.

    And your t-shirt is wonderful, you've done a great job of customizing the plain t-shirt!

  11. The film came out yesterday in France and I was at the midnight showing too, but we didn't get cool 3D glasses like these. Just regular ones. I also wore a Harry Potter t-shirt that I got on a Harry Potter pub crawl at uni. I love yours though, it is so much nicer! Also, you're gonna love the film! It is simply amazing! I already went to see it twice! It is thaaat good!

  21. Aww I'm really excited too, my sister's seeing it at midnight, but I'll be waiting til the weekend I think :)
    I never realised how much of a fan I was until now - getting rather emotional that it's all over, we've grown up with it haven't we?! Have heard amazing reviews already though, so whilst it's bittersweet, I really can't wait to watch it. Excited to hear what you think- have a fab time!

  38. I'm so, SO sad that Harry Potter is ending, I'm not seeing the film until Tuesday, I know I'm going to cry so much! I know we have Pottermore, but it won't be the same! I was 7 when the first book came out, it's been almost my entire childhood. Waaahh :(
    On a happier note, I LOVE your customised top :) xxx
