“When I’m 80 years old and sitting in my rocking chair, I’ll be reading Harry Potter. And my family will say to me, “After all this time?” And I will say, “Always.” - Alan Rickman.
a Harry Potter obsession
“Anything compared to Harry Potter is probably going to be quite shocking, I suppose. Because we’ve grown up (on screen), because we started when we were 11, people think we’re still 11-year-olds. But it’ll be something that’ll always be with me. I’ll always be the ginger one from Harry Potter, but I’m quite OK with that. I’m proud to be a part of it, really.” - Rupert Grint <3
Blake Lively [On not having a stylist: “When I’m going to an event, I’ll send Christian (Louboutin) a picture of my outfit and say, ‘What shoes do you think I should wear with this?’”]
my mom used to say this all the time to me when i was little "you can do hard things" i felt confident!
My before and after picture. From the time I was 13 years old and 169 pounds to now...aged 19 years old and 110-114 lbs.

Recipe for Mexican Vegetable Soup - This is my go-to soup recipe. My family has been making it for years and it instantly makes me feel like I’m living back in Mexico City. Hope all of you enjoy it as much as I do!
Remembering all of my happy and sad moments in life, I truly want to rewrite my history and make more everlasting memories that we can both share and be fond of through the many years to come. I want to take a picture like this and carry it with me. Show it to the world and relive it time after time. (NC)
Must haves for the Harry Potter lover's home. i want the quote in the bottom left as a pillow for my reading room when i get my own place.
Julian Craster: One day when I’m old, I want some lovely young girl to say to me, “Tell me, where in your long life, Mr. Caster, were you most happy?” And I shall say, ‘Well, my dear, I never knew the exact place. It was somewhere on the Mediterranean. I was with Victoria Page.” “What?” she will say. “Do you mean the famous dancer?” I will nod. “Yes, my dear, I do. Then she was quite young, comparatively unspoiled. We were, I remember, very much in love.”
Alegra Shami, 84, with the only photo she has of her father. She was 16 when she arrived at Auschwitz. “They ordered us to stand in a line,” she said. “A young woman grabbed me and shouted: ‘Reach out your left arm. I’m going to put a number on it. And you will remember it for the rest of your life — if you survive at all — just for as long as you manage to survive’. I’m 84 years old. My number: 76914.”
An old picture of a Beatles jam session contains a man who looks almost exactly like Matt Smith’s Doctor. It makes perfect sense when you think about it. If I had a box that gave me access to all of time and space, chilling with the Beatles would be pretty high up on my list of things to do. I’m surprised it took The Doctor until his eleventh generation to get around to it. Steven Moffat is pretty excited about the photo too. “Bloody hell!!!” He tweeted, “Clearly we’re going to make that
Harry Potter Onesie PROTECTED BY LOVE Black by waycooltshirts, $16.00. Does it say something about me that I want my baby to dress like a nerd from birth?!?
All my young cousins ask me why I read for fun. They tell me they HATE reading. I just look at 'em and say... You guys must have such boring little lives
solution: go to the bathroom rite before the set starts and hide in the stall, just sitting or crying. Then when you come out after missing a 200, say you were stuck in your suit, or if it's a girl, say it's "my time."
LOVE this chair!!! Now if only I could get my two year old to sit on it and stay there! for when you need a time out
Say this all the time. When my kids were younger....they would reply "YES!" then I would say "with soap?" The answer would always be obvious when they would turn around and walk back to the bathroom! LOL!
something to talk about
Back in our old quarters in the Training Center, I’m the one who suggests the public marriage proposal. Peeta agrees to do it but then disappears to his room for a long time. Haymitch tells me to leave him alone. “I thought he wanted it, anyway,” I say. “Not like this,” Haymitch says. “He wanted it to be real.”
"But I'm an old Lady." This is a response I hear all the time, when I approach people and ask if I can take their photograph. I always reassure them that they look wonderful and are exactly what I'm looking for. It saddens me to think that these gorgeous,vital, and creative women are made to feel less important and less beautiful as they age. The woman above started off by questioning why I would want to photograph her. After I was finished she thanked me with a big smile on her face....
People always ask what I will do with my tattoos when I'm old...well, here ya go! This is me in 50 years! :) I can only hope I'm this Bad A!
My grandma taught me this many years ago. Refreshing towels I use this trick all the time since I noticed my towels smelling funky. It
DIY t-shirt quilt!!! I thought of this same idea years ago, when I was trying to clean out all of my old junk. Too many t-shirts and not

The Serendipity Books! Ever since I found these when I was young, Serendipity has been my favority word of all time. Even after I learned
Purple Makes Me Happy
“Mom, listen, I haven’t been together with Topanga for 22 years, but we have been together for 16. That’s a lot longer than most couples have been together. I mean, when we were born, you told me that we used to take walks in our strollers together around the block. When we were two, we were best friends. I mean, I knew everything about this girl. I knew her favorite color, her favorite food. Then we became six, Eric made fun of me because it wasn’t cool to have a best friend that was a girl or even know a girl. So for the next seven years I threw dirt at her. I like to call those “the lost years”. Then when I was thirteen, mom, she put me up against my locker and she kissed me. I mean, she gave me my first kiss. She taught me how to dance. She always was talking about these crazy things and I never understood a word she said. All I understood was that she was the girl I sat up every night thinking about, and when I’m with her, I feel happy to be alive. Like I can do anything. Even talk to you like this. So that’s, that’s what I think is love, mom. When I’m better because she’s here.” - Cory Matthews, Boy Meets World <3
Proof Of Time Travel? Legit or total scam? Let's review this extraordinary story: In 2008, a Chinese tomb was opened after 400 years of sitting there untouched. When the coffin was being unwrapped from cloth, something metallic hit the ground. They disovered a mud and rock encrusted watch ring stuck at 10:06 time reading with "Swiss" carved in the back.

It will no longer burn or hurt. ~ The Quibbler is back to publishing articles about the lunatic fringe & is appreciated for its unintentional humour. ~Members of the DA still have their coins, as they are like badges of honor. ~Neville Longbottom worked as an Auror before moving on as the Herbology professor at Hogwarts. ~The remaining Death Eaters were killed or imprisoned in Azkaban for their crimes, with the exception of the Malfoys. ~Luna Lovegood married the grandson of the Newt Scamander, author of ‘Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them’ ~Firenze survived his wounds and was welcomed back into the Centaur herd. ~Harry will never become Headmaster of Hogwarts since an academic career just isn’t him. ~Hagrid was still working at Hogwarts by 2017, at 88 years old. ~Draco Malfoy really cares about his son, Scorpius Malfoy.

In Shamanic understanding, all words are spells. Everything we think or say cascades into reality. When I repeat to myself the thought that I’m not that smart, or beautiful, or deserving, I’m literally cursing myself. Those thoughts go out into the world and bring me situations and outcomes that prove the thoughts. Let’s watch our words today and become aware of how words affect our bodies and our lives.. -Mia Genis Art by Ama Busia

The Beatles are one of my all time favourite bands. I was named after one, they're the reason I first picked up a guitar. This idea came to me when I was thinking about moving the apostrophes round, Sgt Pepper's can quite easily become Sgt's Peppers! It's Sergeant Peppers Fiery Chipotle Salsa Band! $35.00
