2020 Magical Readathon O.W.L.’s: Completion!

After spending April studying for my O.W.L.’s (aka completing the coolest reading challenge, according to my biased inner Harry-Potter-loving fangirl), I am happy to announce I have read all the books and passed the Readathon! *Cue Weasleys’ Wizard Wheezes Fireworks!*

Jade Goes To Comic Con in 2019!

Last year, the best friend and I crossed something significant off our bucket lists: Attend New York Comic Con. This year, I crossed off another thing: Cosplay! Cosplay, or costume play, is the act of dressing up as a fictional character.

Since this was my first time cosplaying, I knew I had to bring the Harry Potter love, and so, unsurprisingly to anyone, I chose a Ravenclaw student as my first cosplay. What do you guys think?Read More »
