Vans is Releasing a Harry Potter Collection Based on the Hogwarts Houses

If you've been following my blog for a while now, you probably already know that I don't leave the house without at least a little bit of geekery in my OOTDs. As such, I have quite a cute collection of geeky footwear so far. And as such, you'll understand why I am completely going crazy over the announcement that Vans will soon be releasing a Harry Potter collection based on the Hogwarts houses of the Wizarding World.

The best part? They all look so good, I don't even know if I can just stick to buying the pair of my house (Ravenclaw, for those who are curious).


Those Gryffindor high-tops look particularly cool. I'm already telling myself that maybe I can pass them off as Lannister sneakers? :p The leather Slytherin ones look so bad-ass, too, and I'm absolutely loving the basic design of the Hufflepuff ones, which are closest to the classic Vans that I'm used to.

Of course, the plaid blue and grey Ravenclaw ones are on top of my to-buy list but which ones do you like best? Will you be buying any based on your Hogwarts house or just for the aesthetics?

This isn't even the whole collection yet. That's right. Vans will be releasing even more footwear styles, as well as clothes and accessories for both men and women. I. Cannot. Wait.

These Limited Edition Toblerone Sleeves are Perfect for Moms

Whether you already have a gift for your mom this Mother's Day or not, it doesn't hurt to get a little extra something to supplement it. I already ordered flowers way in advance for my momma, but I also decided to get her some chocolate because, well, she loves the stuff.

When it came to the question: what kind of chocolate should I get her to make her happy? I decided to go for Toblerone. Why? Aside from having sentimental value (we practically lived on Toblerone when we lived in Germany!); Toblerone's smooth chocolate, chewey nougat, and crunchy almonds make for a special and heartwarming gift.

The cherry on top? Toblerone has released special limited edition Mother's Day sleeves perfect for the occasion:

This Mothers’ Day, Toblerone teamed up with Filipina It-Moms Isabelle Daza and Georgina Wilson, fashionable and gorgeous moms who are currently enjoying the journey of motherhood.

Apparently, their Toblerone sleeve designs reflect their personal views on motherhood. According to Georgina, she designed the pack to celebrate Mother's Day everyday in every little thing we do for our little ones." As for Isabelle, "I wanted something meaningful to give and to receive that would look aesthetic, too. I also made sure the design reminds me and other moms and kids that time with family is always the sweetest."

In addition to these fun artworks, you can also choose from sleeves designed by June Digan, who is known for bold artworks combined with calligraphy; Louise Dimagmaliw, whose artwork is beloved for their whimsical quality; Anina Rubio, who is well-known for her fun and colorful creations; and Raxenne Maniquiz, who works on lovely, multi-colored patterns. There are many design options that will help express how you feel about your mom.

Song Joong-Ki Stars in New Korean Epic Fantasy Drama 'Arthdal Chronicles'

There's a new Korean drama coming to Netflix in June - and it's not just any Korean drama; it's going to be an epic fantasy drama - and the cast is one to get excited for!

Song Joong-ki, Jang Dong-gun, Kim Ji-won, and Kim Ok-bin will all be part of 'Arthdal Chronicles', which will depict the birth of civilization and nations in ancient times. It is a story of mythical heroes and their struggle, unity, and love of people living in the virtual land called Arth.




'Arthdal Chronicles' centers around the ancient city of Arthdal. Eunseom, played by Song Joong-ki, is an innocent-looking character who relentlessly fights to protect his own tribe. Jang Dong-gun, on the other hand, plays Tagon, the charismatic and talented yet overwhelmingly dangerous son of the leader of the Saenyeok Tribe.


Alongside Eunseom and Tagon are Tanya and Taealha, each played by Kim Ji-won and Kim Ok-bin. Watch the teaser trailer here:


'Arthdal Chronicles' is directed by Kim Won-seok ('Sungkyunkwan Scandal', 'Misaeng'), and written by Kim Young-hyun and Park Sang-yeon, the two award-winning screenwriters of the popular Korean historical period dramas 'Deep Rooted Tree' and 'Queen Seondeok'.
