JK Rowling released Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone back in 1997, and it blew all of our minds with magical creatures, spells and characters which will live on forever. 

The book series and film franchise are showing no signs of losing popularity, with young and old fans alike re-watching the movies, re-reading the books and visiting The Wizarding World of Harry Potter as often as they can.

If this isn't enough magic for you, Aldi have just released their Harry Potter range, and it's truly amazing as well as offering products which won't break the Gringotts bank.

From Harry Potter notebooks and pencil cases with Hogwarts crest designs for €2.99 each, Top Trumps cards at €3.99 each and crochet kits for just €4.99; The range has something for everyone.

Knit your very own Hogwarts house scarf or hat with Aldi's Harry Potter knit kit, including needles and yarn, for just €4.99.

Imagine strutting into school sporting one of these Hogwarts bags? We absolutely adore these designs, and can't believe how low the prices are.

Children's character shorty pyjamas are only €4.99 with four gorgeous designs are also available, as well as drinks assortments, lunch bags at €5.99 and buckle bags for €12.99 each.

Just look at those colourful duvet sets, we're in love with each one and they're only €14.99 for the single sets (including pillowcase) and €16.99 for the double version. 

The light painting wand, collector-quality replicas, are based on the original film props and are the perfect way to cast your Expecto Patronum spells. With an ultra-bright LED tip, we can't believe they're just €14.99. Choose between the Elder Wand, Hermione or Harry Potter.

While ASOS does in fact stock homewear products from brands like Sass & Belle, Chickidee, Typo and Paperchase, it's the first time that the company is launching it's own designs.

All of the prints in the collection are created exclusively by ASOS’ in-house design team, and were made to suit all types of living spaces.

Our personal fave items are definitely the elephant hook and eye patterned cushion cover with matching bedding. Iconic, how can we resist adding the entire collection to our baskets?

Buying a gift for your friends or family can be difficult enough when they don't possess 'notions.'

What are notions, you ask? Well, it's essentially when a person has grandiose elements of extravagance; whether in terms of fashion, style, food & drink, décor or just in their everyday life.

They drink non-fat, no-foam, five-shot half-caffeine pumpkin spice latte in a special cup at a certain temperature and will refuse to do most activities due to footwear, except yogalates.

You'd never catch them drinking cans, especially not Tesco lager; they're most likely only drinking a craft beer that no one has heard of or a slimline tonic with lime cordial and a shot of vodka on the side.

Plebs such as us probably would take a taxi or public transport to a club, whereas someone with 'notions' might take a large limousine with white doves as their accessories.

According to the Urban Dictionary definition:

…You get the idea. It's luxurious hipster-ism.

Sprucing up your space for winter conjures up images of rich fluffy throws, scented candles and fresh, comfy new bedding – all elements of a hygge look.

Hygge was huge last year, as the Scandi trend dominated our living spaces, and it's back by popular demand.

There are more than a few ways to spruce up a small living space without spending an absolute fortune.

With homeware trends constantly changing, there are a few cheap, temporary home decor methods to ensure your home looks beautiful whatever the season.

Here are a few tips on adding character to a room without breaking the bank.

Fierce frames

Pictures make such a difference to your home – giving each space bags of personality and a homely feel.

You can get a set of cheap picture frames from Dealz, Penneys or your local charity shop, and add in your own personal photos for a touch of nostalgia. 

Window-lust

We all long for floor-to-ceiling windows flooding our little apartments with light, but unfortunately that's not always the case. 

Provide yourself with your own preferred view with a large-scale canvas picture of some gorge scenery. It will brighten up your home while providing a gorgeous view. 

Plant life

Plants make any home look a little more lively, plus they look amazing in the background of Instagram photos. 

Try some low maintenance cacti on your windowsill or go all out with a potted corner plant. 

Just don't forget to water them!

Upgrade with trim

Adding a trim will liven up otherwise ordinary upholstery around your home, especially if you're in a rental where permanent interior edits are frowned upon. 

Go for pom poms on lampshades or even add velvet ribbons to your decorative mason jars. 

You can also try creating your own coasters from fabric if you're feeling crafty. 

Pull it together

Pull your room together with affordable accessories you pick up along the way, as there is no need to buy new things if you already have home accessories to work with. 

Charity shops and car boot sales are great places for bargains, or add bits and bobs from your travels. 

Got a burned out candle? Re-purpose the jar as a jewellry holder or vase. 

Jazz up a shower curtain

Ever stepped into the shower of your rental accommodation and wondered 'what the hell is that on the shower curtain?'

Rather than living in fear that your shower curtain is slowing moulding away, pick up a cheap and cheerful printed curtain to add new life to a tired bathroom .

Spruce up your artwork

Spruce up a humble piece of art with oversize matting and framing.

Consider investing in original artwork by local up-and-comers and find out when art colleges are having student showings of original works at affordable prices.

Look around

Take the time to see what's out there. Refinish pieces you find in second hand shops, adding your own creative ideas to them.

If you're handy with the power tools, acquire a piece of marble, glass or granite, cut it down to size and put it on top of a dresser or end table. 

The piece you buy will become an original all over again.
