Wizarding World of Harry Potter Haul!

First of all, I'm sorry I haven't posted in forever - I was really busy the past few weeks and I just got back from Orlando, Florida :)

I come to you with my haul from America, where I was planning on getting a few things and ended up just getting some random items that I'm quite pleased with. The first is actually something I got before I went and I LOVE it. It's this faux-leather jacket from Garage. Considering the fact that it is a jacket, it's really well made, and I've gotten so much use out of it already, it was a bit of a steal ($60). It's a deep chocolate brown colour with a grey lining, detachable hood and a few pockets here and there.


Getting into the US stuff, I first visited a surf shop that was inside Universal Orlando, along the main street (City Walk, if you know what I'm talking about). I went there a total of about three times and got three different things.


First I got these earrings, which I was really excited to pick up since I honestly don't have a lot of earrings that aren't studs. They are a teardrop shape with cream, brown and teal coloured thread wound around them. 


On my second trip, I got this shirt, which I also love. It's a Quicksilver shirt, and it's long enough to wear leggings underneath. It has short sleeves with buttons on the sides, and is navy and white striped, which is a look I really love. It also has the sort of bottom that is shorter in the sides than in the front and back, which I know has a name but I honestly can't remember it. 


Lastly, on my final trip, I got this button-down shirt. The sleeves came rolled up, and it is almost a gradient type of shirt with different cream and pink stripes. I love this shirt because it fits well, and isn't anything too bold - it's soft and feminine and super comfortable.


Getting into some more of the fun stuff, I went to the M&M world in the Florida Mall, and I got about a pound of premium M&Ms. In case you were wondering, I got some of the peanut butter, the coconut, the baby blue regular ones, and the mini ones. And I have eaten some (I couldn't help it).


This is actually the design on one of the coconut M&Ms. So cute!


I also went to Sephora and I was planning on picking this up - it was on my list. I got the Naked 2 palette! I'm not going to get into it too much here - I'll do a post with swatches and my initial thoughts later. Oh, and by the way - I am still on project pan. I was actually planning on also getting a concealer when I was down in the states just because these are things I have a harder time getting in Canada, but I never got around to it. I got the Naked 2 now, while I'm on project pan, because it was $10 cheaper in the US and I'm not planning on going down there again anytime soon :) but I'm still not buying any makeup in Canada.



Getting into the Harry Potter stuff now. I got two Chocolate Frogs and a package of Bertie Bott's Every Flavour Beans, because of the packaging. Plus, the frogs come with cards inside.



I also got a little keychain to put on my car keys that is the Deathly Hallows symbol. This was probably one of my favorite things I got.

One last thing I got from the giftshop was this mug - I thought it was absolutely gorgeous and I know what I'm going to be drinking my tea out of from now on!


Last but not least, I got a pumpkin juice to try (I love the bottle. Definitely keeping this and washing it out when I finish the drink) and I also got a butterbeer. I decided to get one in the plastic mug instead of the cup that you throw away just because I could reuse the mug this way. By the way, I decided to try the iced butterbeer - and it was really good. If you are going to the WWOHP anytime soon, I definitely recommend it.



In all, I had an amazing time. I tried all of the rides and went around Universal Orlando quite a bit. It was a great vacation but I'm glad to be back :)

For those reading, have you ever been to a theme park like Universal? What did you think of it?
