Fall Out Boy || October 6th VIP.

I love going to gigs, and concerts. There's something really magical about being able to feel the music vibrating your sternum and the rasp left in your voice for days after singing along at the top of your lungs. It's no secret, my favourite band is Fall Out Boy, and there's nothing better than listening to them live.

So of course, I was online and checked out with tickets within minutes of the release for this tour. But it got better... VIP packages were released for the UK dates too. Luckily, my brother was on hand to snag them for me while I was at work. Well, lucky for him, he'd have been in a world of trouble if he missed out. ;)

But, that's when the fear set in. There's an old saying that goes 'never meet your heroes.' We'd probably get two seconds with them, I was going to hate my photo and be an awkward mess or not be able to get my words out, and they wouldn't like me.

System Reset || My Apple Customer Service Experience.

Oh! Hello there. Hmm? Where have I been? Well, my beloved laptop has been on the fritz for a few months now, and it became difficult to write posts while it wasn't performing how it should. I had hoped that all the performance issues would go away with a new battery, so I booked an appointment at my local Apple Store Genius Bar.

Now they must have been busy bees lately, as every time I checked for at least a few months, I could never find an appointment! I suppose it must have been a busy time of year for them, with the Back to School/Uni crowd getting their tech in order for the new term.

I had called Customer Care before to get a quote for how much it would cost and how long it would take. The answer was a lot, and it could be a while. Eek! So when I finally got my appointment booked, I backed up my files and prepped to be without my right hand m'book for a few days.

The Making of Harry Potter Mini Haul.

Hi everyone! Today i'm going to show you the bits and bobs I bought at the Warner Brothers Studio Tour - The Making of Harry Potter. I posted about the tour yesterday, if you haven't seen it already you can read that here. Having just come back from Disneyland two days before my visit, I was pretty well behaved with my money. There was so much great stuff on offer, and there are a couple of things I really regret not picking up at the time. If anyone else is thinking of going and you want to bring me back a cauldron mug and a keyring, feel free!

When it comes to wizarding confectionery, I'd say the Chocolate Frog, is the most iconic. While not magical, you can pick up your very own from the gift shop for £7.95. It's a whopping 150g piece of chocolate in a pretty replica box, complete with a 3D famous wizard card. My friend and I both got Salazar Slytherin cards. The chocolate frog itself was pretty solid. I had to give it to my dad to break up, as I could not split it into smaller chunks at all. I have a pretty big gob, and I think even I would have had a hard time getting my teeth into it. Plus, there's something a little strange about trying to bite into one of these...

Warner Brothers Studio Tour - The Making of Harry Potter.

A few months ago, we went to the Warner Brothers Studio Tour - The Making of Harry Potter for my birthday! It seems like forever ago now, so it's really about time I told you all about it! We travelled down by train, and actually found that for some trips, First Class tickets were cheaper! We had the entire carriage to ourselves on the way home, which gave us a perfect window for some Bertie Bott's tasting... More on that later!

[Review] Imperial Leather Marshmallow & Fruit Salad.

Hello everyone!

I've got a bit of a bargain buy to share with you today, the Imperial Leather Sweets collection shower cremes. I've bought one of this style shower creme before, and I wasn't a huge fan. It was really runny and thin, and I didn't really like the smell either. I assumed these would be the same consistency, so really I only bought them because to A) see what they smelt like and B) because they were on offer.

[Review] Sims 4 for Mac.

So, just where have I been? Well... I thought it was a good idea to finally buy The Sims 4. Although it was released for Mac back in February, since then i've been telling myself i'd clean up my hard drive of all the clutter before getting the game. I still haven't, but I couldn't resist the lure anymore! I am just now emerging from that state of 'must build all the houses, must make all the sims.' You know, that period of time where you just can't turn the thing off?

[Foodie] Ham Holy Burger.

Hello everyone! 

I'm back again with another foodie post!

I was wandering up and down Oxford Street a few weeks ago doing a little shopping, when tummies began grumbling a little. As we were already in John Lewis, we thought we'd check out their restaurants on the third floor before making a decision where to go. On offer was italian food at Rossopomodoro or burgers and fries at Ham. Now, you know me, I'm not one to turn down the chance to try a new veggie burger, and i'd never seen a Ham restaurant before so we decided to give it a try.
