5 Things All Harry Potter Fans Need To Do To Have The Ultimate Movie Marathon

Spend a day in the Wizarding world!

Some might say having a Harry Potter marathon is crazy, those people are obviously not dedicated fans. Who wouldn't want to spend a whole day watching one of the greatest series ever? So in order to have the most magical marathon possible, here are a few things you might need!

1. Set aside a whole day

Yep, a WHOLE day! Each of the Harry Potter movies are between two and half and three hour. Because of this it will take close to 20 hours, give or take with breaks, to watch every movie!

2. Get your comfiest clothes

If you're going to be spending a whole day watching movies you might want to break out the pj's and the sweats for this. I would suggest wearing any Harry Potter themed comfy clothes you have, like Harry Potter themed pj pants or your favorite house's logo on a shirt or sweatshirt.

3. Make some magical snacks

You could definitely go all out with this one! Pinterest is filled with tons of recipes for some of the best Harry Potter themed snacks such as, butterbeer, deathly hallows cookies, and chocolate dipped pretzel wands. Although, you can never go wrong with pizza and soda.

4. Find Potter themed activities

If watching with a group of friends you could look up quizzes that sort you all into houses. Maybe during breaks you could do competitions on quotes or facts about the movies or series and award points to different houses. If you were watching alone you could also take quizzes to see what house you're in, what character you're most like, or what your patronus would be.

5. Wizarding world crafts are always an option

For large groups, coming up with some sort of craft to do could be a great idea! Doing crafts while you watch the movie by yourself is also fun too. The most fun crafts do do in both situations would be making your own wand or Harry Potter themed ornaments. Pinterest is always a good place to look for crafting ideas!

Once you get all the supplies you need you're ready to start your magical marathon. So grab some friends or settle in by yourself and start your magical movie journey!

6 Places in New York City Every "Friends" Fan Needs to Visit

Grab a cup of coffee at Central Park.

As a Friends fanatic myself, I often wonder about the places in New York City featured in the various episodes and whether I could actually visit them. Most of them are fictional or no longer exist, but there are a few places you can go to reminisce about your favorite Friends moments. So, here are 6 places in New York City you definitely need to visit as a Friends fan.

1. The Apartment Building, Obviously

The building used for the exterior shot of the apartments in Friends is real, and is located at 90 Bedford Street at the corner of Grove Street in Greenwich Village. It's an obvious must-see.

2. The Pullitzer Fountain

This is the fountain that the friends danced around in for the iconic theme song, and it's located right in Central Park.

3. Bloomingdale's

This is the department where Rachel worked before she moved on to Ralph Lauren, where she met Joshua, and where she started her career in fashion.

4. The Plaza Hotel

This is where Monica and Chandler celebrated their engagement in The One WIth Monica's Thunder, and is actually really gorgeous.

5. The Central Perk Replica

While Central Perk isn't a real coffee shop, a pop-up replica opened up in 2014 on Lafayette Street and it's definitely a must-visit.

6. Chandler's Office

The fictional Chandler works in the real Solow Building, located on West 57th street.

Hannah B. Named The Next Bachelorette: Get Excited!!

Roll Tide.


On the season finale of the hit reality TV show 'The Bachelor' Chris Harrison announced the new Bachelorette to be Hannah Brown, affectionately referred to as "Hannah Beast." Hannah made it far in Colton's season of the Bachelor, but hit some bumps along the way. She was involved in serious drama with costar and fellow pageant competitor Caelynn. Not only is Hannah B. known for drama and tears, she is also known for her awkward and often uncomfortable behavior around the cameras. And let's not forget the most awkward first date and toast of all time...Roll Tide!

Despite her awkward and quirky personality, I think the Alabama native is truly a sweetheart. She cannot be judged based on the controversy that took place between her and Caelynn because no one knows the full truth of the story. In my opinion, no one was completely innocent in their "cat fight" but the way in which each girl handled themselves in the resolution of this drama was mature and, quite frankly, impressive. I think Hannah B's season will be full of more tears and could potentially be very uncomfortable to watch at some moments, but at the end of the say, Hannah B. deserves to find love just like any other 'Bachelor' hopeful. It will definitely be an interesting season to watch, so get excited!!
