Birthday week! (And yes still more Harry Potter!)

My sister's birthday was yesterday July 22nd, so these are just a few photos from the week we've had so far!

The cupcakes I made for her. This photo was taken on my phone so the colors aren't coming out at all!

Her stack of gifts. . .it ended up being a pink theme without even trying to!

As you all know we have a huge Harry Potter obsession. A few days ago Alana (my sister) decided she wanted to go to Universal Citywalk to get some Harry Potter candy and some other stuff. We did go to Citywalk, but we ended up going into the park, Islands of Adventure also. The beauty of living in Central Florida. . .this is my backyard!
Alana by the Hogwarts Express

Me in front of Zonko's shop and the Puking Pastilles. This was deemed the best photo of the night!

my OOTD: crop top is Lucie Rose, shorts are Abercrombie and Fitch

Alana with her Peppermint Toads outside of Honeydukes.

Alana's OOTD: all Gilly Hicks tank, crochet crop, and shorts

Us in our Slytherin robes. Alana has always liked Slytherin just because she likes Draco Malfoy, but I kept telling her you can't choose which house you're in. So I found a sorter and we both actually did get Slytherin. Alana is holding Voldemort's wand, I have Hermione's.

Another gem of a photo. It's sad that I'm better at taking weird photos than normal ones.

Our photo shoot before we found the nice Universal shop keeper to take our picture together.

I bought Pumpkin Juice and Peppermint Toads. The Pumpkin Juice is amazing, sort of Apple Cider with pumpkin pie spice in it or something. Tastes like fall. The Peppermint Toads are just mint chocolate which is always good! We've tried a lot of the other candy as well, the chocolate frogs are really good, The Bertie Botts Beans are gross, and the frozen Butterbeer is one of the best things I've ever had. I did have it in December when it was freezing out though, so it would probably be even better now!

And the Fizzing Whizbees were our favorite so we don't have anything left but the tag! We've been to Harry Potter World a few times now and this was the first time we've seen these. They're bee shaped chocolates with pop rocks in them. They were delicious!


  1. Sounds like such a fun time! And that's awesome how close you live to Universal/Disney area!

  2. I can't believe I didn't even know this place existed! I nominated you:
