So there I was laid in bed on my iPod doing my usual hunt on eBay for anything Harry Potter related. From soft toys to stamps to the monster book of monsters – the online auction heaven has everything you could ever want.

But this girlie already has the robe, the stationary set and the lunchbox and wanted something a bit more glamorous.

I kept on trawling through when there it was the absolute perfect item I could ever wish for – a Harry Potter charm bracelet!

I ADORE charm bracelets as they fascinate with me and I often can spend a whole lesson going through the various charms on one of my many bracelets rather than attempting 80 words per minute in shorthand.

This bracelet in particular had every Harry Potter-esque charm on it that I could ever wish for – from Scabbers to a Hungarian Horntail to a Firebolt to a golden snitch and even Colin Creevey’s infamous camera plus a million more.

I immediately bought if and paid for it straight way then persuaded my boyfriend to buy me it for our five year anniversary ;).

The price for this all kinds of amazing Harry Potter charm bracelet? – £9.99!

Get yourself onto the eBayers shop and buy one for yourself – tell them I sent you.

Will I be going too far if I team it up with my timeturner, Gryffindor robe and elder wand? – No, didn’t think so.

eBay buys.

12 Mar

Long time no blog! Sorry about the hiatus but i’ve been busy eating Pizza Hut, sleeping and watching Crufts but now I’m back and I’ve got helluva lot of stuff to blog about.

I’ve been a bit lazy as of late and instead of going around town looking for what I wanted I went to the worlds biggest auction website that is eBay.

I will admit it, I am a bit TOO addicted and often spend the last 10 minutes before I drift off too sleepy land looking for anything to do with my favourite wrestlers, as evident in this picture:

I soon gave up on trying to find Beth Phoenix’s ring worn attire after trying for 3 weeks non-stop and instead I started to search for a pair of leather pants. Continue reading

No not shoes or diamonds (well I would like diamonds) but in this case its fur coats and quirky bags.

Yes bizatches I’ve done it again, I Chantal Jade Taylor-Lauper-Phoenix have managed to hunt out and buy two wonderful vintage fantasy fur coats.

The first find was a beautiful sleek black coat and whenever I wear it I like to pretend I am either A) Padfoot (aka Sirius Black as a dog) or B) Moony (aka Professor Lupin as a werewolf) – either way I am a canine from Harry Potter. Continue reading

A Harry Halloween.

1 Nov

Why is it that on Halloween girls suddenly throw all their dignity out of the window and wear the most sluttiest of ‘costumes’ – no matter if they are a curvy size 10 or a obese size 20. It totally boggles my mind – the same girls will slag off everyone on Snog, Marry, Avoid throughout the year but then on the 31st of October they are even worse.

Anyways rant OVER, I hope everyone had a great Halloween – I had loads of fun trick n treating with my BFF and her family – it was really lovely plus I got to eat hotdogs (not octopus :-P) and loads of sweets!

I decided to dress as Harry(iet) Potter – complete with Hedwig and a Nimbus 2000.

Glasses: £1 -Primark.
Scarf: free – found it in my house.

Charity Chic #4.

1 Oct

Things I missed about England while I was on holiday:

1. Gypsy-Lady

2. Benny

3. Facebook/Twitter

4. Wrestling

5. Charity Shops!!!

So as soon as I got home after I kissed and cuddled both Gypsy and Benny, went through two weeks worth of Facebook and Twitter and caught up on all my wrestling I headed out to the charity shops.

It seems that because I was away lots of great items built up and there they appeared all sat waiting nice and patiently in the various shops waiting for Chantal to come along and give them a brand new home.
