I started January at Hogwarts which consisted of watching all the Harry Potter films and attending the Warner Bros. Studio Tour. It was fun and I wanted to buy the Gryffindor House uniform but thought better of it.
I saw the band Daughter when they played the Oxford O2 and made sure I caught up with as many friends as possible. The cascade of celebrity deaths was really sad and it motivated me to donate a couple of bags to Cancer Research and offer to do some voluntary work. I’m really looking forward to helping others and I’m certain the experience will inspire me creatively.
I hope you had a wonderful January and February is bubbling along nicely. If you’d like to catch my onward journey I’ll see you over on Instagram. Have a fabulously gorgeous day!
