How are y’all doing? Honestly. Hope you’re all happy or at least smiling and enjoying a nice cuppa right now while swimming through the blogosphere.
While I’m certain you loyal readers are familiar with my feelings about pink and nude nails on me, I really enjoyed this combo I’m sharing today – I think muddy olive nail polishes are just simply my cup of tea. The muddier the better.
China Glaze Kalahari Kiss (my first ever, and only China Glaze bottle) and OPI Uh Oh Roll Down the Window.
I found this in Mah Vault (that place deep in the memory spaces of my tablet where older manis go to hide and wait their turn – mostly trying to scream loud enough to be heard over the roar of my procrastination) – it’s OLD. Just look at my nails. The shape, the length. From the olden days around the 50th anniversary of Doctor Who. Which, if you’re a decent human being (aka Whovian), you know the date of.
Alright. In other news, my birthday came and went – on the 7th of Jan, Christmas is long gone and back to uni is on.
I asked for the most amazing birthday gift and my lovely Dad took me to Making of Harry Potter Studios in London – OH LORDY.
I’m not a huge obsessive Harry Potter fan (I mostly ADORED the books) – but being able to see how the movies were created was truly, truly MAGICAL. My Dad enjoyed it too, although he hasn’t even seen most of the films – proof that the tour is FASCINATING. He was so patient while I ran around throwing my eyeballs at ALL THINGS.
The visitors were, surprisingly, mostly teenagers and adults, not children. Made us cackle.
If I were less blue and in a better mood I’d tell you ALL about how this is the actual set in Leavesden where they made the movies, and lived and studied and had fun for 10 years – the crew and actors. The actual space and stages – not a museum at all. I’d also probably flood you with all the photos I took – so it’s way better for your pupils that I’m in a crappy mind state.
But I’m leaving you with:
I saw Hogwarts in the Snow!
Also, my highlight: I had a chance to walk down Diagon Alley and I couldn’t. leave. – pure magic.
Hope you’re all doing well and sending you frozen muahs,
