Harry Potter Play & Cocktails

well first off we'll #keepthesecrets
because J.K. is totes our no.1 gal
but we were filled to the brim with as much harry p excitement
as when we were queuing up to buy the books at midnight

we were lucky enough to go to the previews, the day before the official launch -
we mean we haven't stopped obsessing over it since!

the play literally is the best most magical thing we've ever seen
EVER
(yay for irl magic)
