The Lighthouse Cinema have just announced a Harry Potter sleepover which will feature all eight films back-to-back, with a magical Hogwarts-themed menu to feed the hungry wizards all night.

For Harry Potter fans, this may just be the greatest night of their lives. The cinema created the event as part of their Wonder Years series, which celebrates the movies we all grew up with.

Fancy dress is, of course, encouraged for this ultimate movie marathon. The first film kicks off at 2pm on July 27, and there will be a short break after each screening.

The event ends at midday on July 28, and you are welcome to bring your own blankets or cushions. The franchise remains one of the nation's favourite ever stories about growing up in a magical and exhilarating world.

A young wizard and his friends and enemies alike go on a journey of evil Dark Magic, hilarious adventures and thrilling magical experiences and we LIVED for it.

Harry, Ron and Hermione grew into powerful young men and women, and even had little kids themselves after the Great War ended. It's time to re-imagine Hogwarts and bring JK Rowling's series back to life.

The eight movies add up to almost 24 hours so you'll have to prepare yourself for this immersive experience. The event page list the duration as 1,365 minutes (22.75 hours, to be exact).

More information about the Harry Potter sleepover can be found here or via the Facebook event page. Tickets are €45 so make sure you're committed before grabbing your wand and robe.

Many of us are obsessed with the Harry Potter franchise, and would do almost anything to have the most immersive wizarding world experience possible.

Amazingly for Hagrid fans, you can now rent a holiday cottage which is inspired by the fictional home of Rubeus himself, Keeper of Keys and Grounds at Hogwarts.

The Groundkeeper’s Cottage has recently opened at North Shire near Saltburn on the edge of the North York Moors National Park, and is almost exactly a replica of Hagrid's Hut in the magical series.

With International Harry Potter Day just around the corner, on May 2, the cottage couldn't have arrived at a better time.

The cottage has three interlocking circular slate-roofed buildings featuring stained glass windows, an open plan living room, seating in front of a feature fireplace, wood beams with Hagrid paraphernalia and a lantern-lit wooden door.

The owner Carol Cavendish has loved Harry Potter since her early 20s, and has incorporated small Potter-themed touches such as an ink bottle and quill and bespoke copper basin in the bathroom.

The cottage itself took £195,000 to build, and the holiday rental can sleep up to six people. If you've got a dog, or your very own Fang, you're also welcome to bring one well-behaved pet for an extra cost.

She's made a comfortable retreat for any wizards or witches to adore, for just £195 (€225) per night.

We all have had a bad experience with heating tools and haircare: whether it's burning your scalp or just creating supremely dodgy curls for a night out, it's happened to us all.

Some gals even resort to teaching their boyfriends how to use hair tools to stop themselves from constantly getting burnt, and other gals just give up altogether.

Taming the mane can be tedious, frustrating and just downright PAINFUL. This Christmas, we're hoping to get a gift from Santa which will ultimately stop the problem of tangled brushes and applying aloe vera to our burns.

We have scoured the lands trying to find a tool that allows us to move our heads and hands around without the heat danger, and creates the perfect looks for day and night.

HALLELUIJAH: a new and improved version of the Instyler has just been released, and it just might save your life.

You might remember the original Instyler; in case you've been living under a haircare rock, it's become a huge name by transforming hair into big bouncy waves and straight, sleek locks.

The Instyler Max now comes in three glam colours: purple, black and pink, and we can't decide which one we want more.

Praise the Lord, no more burns. The Instyler Max has a rotating barrel addition which straightens, curls, and adds twice the amount of body to our hair. It works super fast so you won't be spending hours with aches in your neck staring at the mirror. 

Trying to get picture-perfect hair can be tricky at best, re-creating glamorous curls or straight sleek looks from our favourite catwalk shows seems unfairly difficult considering we don't have a personal hairstylist on hand.

We are hoping (nay, praying) that this tool will be the answer to our hair prayers. Think of it like a mini-hairstylist that you can carry around in your bag.

Treat yourself, we are definitely nabbing this in time for our Christmas party.

Grab your new guardian angel of hair at www.instyler.ie for just €99.99, not bad considering it essentially gives you red carpet glamour.
