Buzz Bags Review: Sherlocked

IMG_0834

Buzz Bags strikes again with another killer bag from one of my favorite fandoms, BBC’s Sherlock. It comes at a very apropos time as well. For those of you not in the crazed Sherlock fandom know, like myself, the very popular Sherlocked Convention that is held in the UK yearly is making the move to the US. Unfortunately, that’s still too far for me as I have my West Coast visit already planned for next year being SDCC 2017, but it’s pretty excellent for all the US fans.

But I digress! This bag was full of some fun accessories, and possibly my most favorite ever. Living in Miami, going to the beach is {nearly} everyone’s favorite past time. That means anklets are a style staple, and I actually got my first fandom anklet ever! If you follow me on Instagram, then you already saw me post a story squealing over it. I wish I could have added a picture of me wearing it, but it broke after getting stuck in my pants. Sad face! Buzz Bags are so awesome that they are going to send me a replacement anklet though, so hurrah! Crisis averted.

Aside from the adorable Sherlock-themed anklet, we got 2 beautiful necklaces: one sporting the fan favorite line “I am Sherlocked” and the other a key to Apartment 221b. The package was rounded out by two quotable pins and a magnet, and some amazing nail decals that I can’t wait to sport once I find the time to paint my nails again! Overall, it was an awesome little package as per usual. If you are interested in grabbing one of your own, head on over to their site. They have some pretty amazing bags coming up for the rest of the year as well!

iRead: Harry Potter + The Cursed Child

Image-1 (1)

I have been hearing so many opinions about Harry’s newest adventures in the script for The Cursed Child, and here is mine.

I was beyond excited to have more Harry in my life, so I devoured this easy read in two evenings (quite the feat when you are a new mom). It is so important to remember the format of this “book.” It is a script, it is meant to be acted out on stage, so sometimes it may read flat. It also doesn’t flesh out the world the way we are used to reading with JK. That is because it is meant to be fleshed out on stage, and I’m sure is mindblowing and gorgeous. These are things to keep in mind before reading this “book,” and things that I have seen that are popping up in reviews as strikes against it, which isn’t fair.

With that said, lets get into the SPOILER FILLED review. You have been warned. Do not continue if you have not read the script or do not to be spoiled.
