Hello hello
This is definitely a bittersweet post for me to write as we bid adieu to Harry Potter.


No story lives unless someone listens.
-J.K. Rowling-

So I know it sounds cliche, it was like yesterday I watched my first Harry Potter movie yada, yada yada.
but jokes aside, it does bring back so much memories.
I remember in 2001, that was the first year I moved into my new school, I was 11.
and the final part of the movie will officially premiere in a few days marking the end of basically a decade, and this year, I'll be 21.
It's kinda crazy how it has been so long since the beginning but as we all know, every wonderful story inevitably has a conclusion.
I had the privilege of watching the LIVE premiere on youtube, exactly as it happened! I think they are showing reruns of the premiere so if you missed it, definitely head on over to the video and check it out, it was definitely a tearful event as the cast said their goodbyes but rest assured, it was filled with passion and emotion as everyone watched with mixed emotions.
It was amazing and such a pleasure to see how humbled they were as they stood there in awe of how many people camped out for this moment.
It was just such a surreal moment and all of a sudden it hits you that this is it, this is the end.
Daniel Radcliffe, Rupert Grint, and Emma Watson were just incredible, and it has definitely been such a pleasure technically "growing up" with them.
I'm not an insane fanatic but I would be lying if I said my childhood would have been the same without Harry Potter.
If i may quote, Thank you J.K. Rowling for making glasses/spectacles and red hair cool. :)

Without further adooooo.
Check out some of the photos from the premiere!

A good number of people have been criticizing this dress worn by J.K. Rowling but you know what, I think it holds quite a symbolic statement. To each its own.

I absolutely love this dress, Emma Watson is so classy and effortlessly beautiful.
The dress she's wearing is by Oscar De La Renta from the F/W 2011 collection.




This was definitely the breaking point for me when J.K. Rowling made her speech, I totally lost it.

'Whether it's by page or screen, Hogwarts will always welcome you home.'
-J.K. Rowling-

Thank you for the magic you've brought into our lives.
Hogwarts will always be part of me
It was definitely a bittersweet moment as J.K Rowling finished her farewell speech.
I'm proud to say I am part of the Harry Potter generation.
I'll definitely be catching the Harry Potter movie, I hope you do too! and definitely tweet me and tell me what you thought about it:)

I won't say goodbye, I'll leave you with this though, toodles till later Hogwarts.
It's been quite a decade:)
