As some of you may or may not know, I love Harry Potter and have done since I was about six years old. I still read the books religiously and also look after my almost six year old Harry Potter RPG forum, Hogwarts Realm. Once upon a time it was one of the most active Harry Potter RPGs on the net but unfortunately a few years back I got a life and everything went down hill, so I was hoping to try and get it back on track again! If anyone can lend a helping hand by maybe posting a link or an advertisement banner, or even just mentioning it to some Harry Potter loving friends I'd be so happy! I may even give those that help a little promotion here on my blog as a thank you!

If you're interested in joining then here's some information about the plot and some useful links! I've also written a how-to manual here on my tumblr and also theres another one on HR here.

Hogwarts Realm
Its the year 2027, Harry Potter and his friends are all in their forties. Professor Dumbledore passed away at the ripe age of 176 and now Lavender Finnegan has been appointed Headmistress of Hogwarts for her loving and caring ways, which may be needed in the times to come
A strange concoction, said to subdue Manticores and other dangerous magical creatures was being created for use in court rooms for the Department of Regulation and Control of Magical Creatures, however, something went wrong. The wizards and witches who created to potion breathed in fumes from the potion and unbelievably lost their magic. This would be an ok thing to get over in the Wizarding World if it was only those few potioners, but now the malady is spreading, to what is supposedly the entire magical world. Some are immune but many aren't and those that aren't are losing their magic left right and center. The Ministry is doing what it can but nothing seems to be working, how will we find the cure?!
What will happen to the witches and wizards of the world now they are infected with The Curse of the Squib?

hogwarts realm is a 5 year old traditional harry potter roleplay with 200,000+ posts!

we're trying to keep the old type of hogwarts roleplay alive.
canon and original characters are welcome and we have other hidden boards available to registered members including the ministry and hogwarts village!
im new ! what do i do to start off ?!

Thank you to anyone who helps make HR more active again! <3

Also, I thought I'd let you all know I've been taking some photos for ebay today! Not that I've uploaded anything yet but I should be doing so soon!

I think I should make my fringe permanent?

The top photo is me with my natural hair and no makeup, oh dear. I thought you might like to see my morning transformation haha. I don't really like my hair in the first photo but I also don't know if I should cut a fringe in. At the moment I'm just clipping it under, and I really like the way it looks, but I'm scared that if I cut it, it wont look the same, but I hate having to spend so much time trying to get my fringe right.. and then sometimes it falls out during the day, but then some days I feel like having a middle parting, even though I don't think it suits me. Oh the confusion. Also, I bleached my roots the other day with live xxl, I'm going for a more all over striking colour rather than highlights, I love it, my mom wasn't too happy though :'(

They have arrived! I am so happy I adore them! I'm currently in wales, the land of amazing charity shops, but I'm going home soon, I've been here all week! I'll do an update tomorrow or Tuesday of all the stuff I've acquired! In these photos I'm wearing a blouse which is from a charity shop, the shorts I've had since I was 10, originally they were light blue skinny jeans but then I dyed them black when I was about 13, and then when I was 15 I cut them into shorts, they were from Tammy originally. My tights are from the birmingham rag market, I now have two pairs of these! I've also dyed the roots of my hair blonde, its a bit yellow but nothing a bit of toning shampoo can't fix! I think it went ok considering it was my first time bleaching my hair.. despite the fact that the underneath of my hair is still partly brown, really I want an all over colour but I know thats difficult to achieve since I have highlights so I'm just going to leave it and keep touching up my roots every few months

I'm sorry I haven't posted anything for so long, I just didn't feel like it, but I've been on my tumblr lots. I'm trying to figure out a way to merge the two, well, not merge, but have them running side by side on one page, I think it would motivate me to update this blog more often.

I have finally purchased some creepers! I didn't want to get normal black ones so I thought I'd go all out and buy the weirdest ones I could find that weren't too much money, so I got these, they have a 3" sole! Finally I will be tall, I can't wait for them to arrive.

I bought a new blouse today, it had a giant collar, I saw it in the window in Oxfam and just had to get it, despite the fact that it was £4 which to me is a lot haha. I got the shorts from a charity shop in Plymoth in Devon last week, originally they were long baggy flared trousers but I cut off the legs. The brooch was another one which my grandma gave me and I've had that cardigan since I was about 15, I think its from Primark. My hair is what I would like to call the Twiggy Ramirez hair style. I love Twiggy he is fabulous.

I'm quite bored, so ask me some things on formspring? http://www.formspring.me/kaylahadlington
