I was reminded how much I love the Harry Potter fandom. The world premiere of J.K. Rowling's Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them was held in New York City. While I wasn't invited to the premiere this time around, I went anyway to help MuggleNet with their social media. It was a cold evening and I spent a couple hours with my arm held up in the air recording the fans waiting for actors to arrive. When J.K. Rowling and Eddie Redmayne made there way over madness ensued. I was even interviewed by Warwick Davis for an upcoming documentary he's doing! I'm not used to being the interviewee so that was an interesting experience!
Flash forward to Saturday and a perfect New York day. My friend and I had a lazy morning and then he and I headed out to lunch at Pure Thai Cookhouse. We arrived 5 minutes after they opened and it was already almost full. The food was delicious, I had some vegetable spring rolls and chicken pad thai. YUMMM. After that we headed to Bibble & Sip to see if they had any fun desserts left, sadly they just had their famous cream puffs (which I'm not a fan of.) We ended up at another bakery where I got a french macaron and hazelnut and chocolate mousse sphere.
After that we met up with a few other friends and then took a walk through Central Park before heading to Carnegie Hall to see the movie! It. Was. FANTASTIC. I wrote a spoiler free review for my Harry Potter site. Don’t forget to get your tickets to see Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them ahead of it’s release on November 18th - or tonight in some areas!!
I didn't take any outfit photos but here are some pictures from the weekend.

|This is the THIRD time I've been this close to Eddie Redmayne without meeting him. I've been a fan since he modeled for Burberry YEARS ago. One day I'll be able to say Hi! Ha ha.|
