Croatia Day 2 Part 1 | 5 Islanding Hopping | Blue Cave, Stiniva Cove & Green Cave


Our second day in Croatia, we booked a 5 island hopping tour on a speedboat. Our destinations, the Blue Cave, Stiniva Cove, the Green Cave, Palmižana Bay and Hvar! It’s amazing what you deem important by how early you’re willing to actually wake up; I lie in and miss struggle to wake up for my 9am lectures, but I’ll happily jump out of bed at 6am for a speedboat adventure! We packed some watermelon slices as some snacks for the journey popped into the local shop to pick up some lunch. We met our tour guide on The Riva, along with the other group members of this exciting tour, and walked along the bank to our very own speedboat. Read More »

House of MinaLima: Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them Midnight Book Signing


Photo taken by Naïké Kaboré

As you walk around the corner from the Palace Theatre – home of the new, coveted play, Harry Potter and the Cursed Child – onto Greek Street, you may notice a building that seems to be out of place. It’s a narrow and rickety building that you’d expect to find, on Diagon Alley. That is of course, if you’re a “Potterhead” such as myself. However, even if you’re not, it’s a building filled with four floors of beautiful design, artwork and of course, magic. House of MinaLima is a new pop up store, showcasing 15 years of the graphic art from the Harry Potter films as well as unique works by MinaLima Design.Read More »
