This news makes us want to buy a round of Butterbeer in celebration!

Universal Studios Florida had an AH-Mazing announcement yesterday, as Mark Woodbury, President of Universal Creative, along with the V.P. of Universal Creative, Dale Mason, and the set designer for the Harry Potter series, Stuart Craig, revealed that there would be a Leaky Cauldron restaurant as part of the Wizarding World of Harry Potter expansion!

1,000 points to Griffindor!

Our favorite wizard pub will be a fixture of Universal's Diagon Alley addition, and according to Stuart will be completely immersive:

"It’s another great opportunity to walk from one space to another to experience the whole thing. We were able to put detail into the ceiling, encouraging people to look up. It’s a 360 degree experience.”

We wish could use the time-turner and fast forward to when the London expansion to the WW opens, but we don't want to rupture the whole time-space continuum, or spin too many times and run into Voldemort!

Until then we will have constant vigilance for updates!

Ch-ch-check out the entire magical announcement…AFTER THE JUMP!!!

It looks like David Beckham's dreams of bringing an MLS team to Miami are getting a lot closer to becoming a reality!

Earlier this year, we were hearing rumblings that the former soccer stud was interested in starting up a team in the Sunshine State, and it sounds like he's put in a lot of work since then!

According to sources, Becks is ready to drop $25 million to

Phase Two Of Orlando's Wizarding World Of Harry Potter Is Coming Much SOONER Than Expected!

Filed under: Harry Potter

harry potter world

Yes! YES YES YES!

We'd been so head over heels about the developments for The Wizarding Worlds of Harry Potter coming to El Lay and Japan that we had forgotten about all of the changes in the works at the original, in Orlando, Florida!

But as we've reported, Universal is busy expanding the franchise from its Islands of Adventure location all the way to where the Jaws ride used to be, which will allegedly become a new and improved Diagon Alley and London set…and will even house a fully functional Hogwarts Express train that will transport visitors to the original 'Hogsmeade' location!

Hold on to your sorting hat, however, because apparently, this could all be happening much sooner than anyone had anticipated!

Like NEXT-YEAR sooner, you guys!

In an announcement made this morning by Buddy Dyer, the mayor of Orlando:

Taylor Swift STILL Buying Property! Find Out Where She May Be Moving Next HERE!

taylor swift looking to buy property in london

Well, well, well! Somebody is acquiring quite the collection of homes, isn't she?!

While some may have taken Taylor Swift's decision to buy a house in Hyannis near her ex-boyfriend, Conor Kennedy, to be a little, ahem, 'impulsive,' the country cutie could, in fact, just be attempting to build up a portfolio of property!

Which would certainly make sense, now that she's also apparently looking to pick up a place in London, too!

You know, to go along with her mansions in Nashville AND Beverly Hills!

Nicole Richie Planning Kids Shoe Collection For House Of Harlow

nicole-richie-kids-shoe-line-ramey.jpg

As we mentioned before, Fashion Star's Nicole Richie is expanding her empire by jumping into the celebrity fragrance arena.

Now we hear that fashionista also has plans to eventually branch her House of Harlow line into other areas, including a possible children's shoe collection!

Here’s what Nicole had to say about what up next for her brand:

"I eventually want to branch out into home furnishings and other areas. Ultimately, [House of Harlow] will be a lifestyle brand. I have also thought about [designing shoes for] kids, and it is something that I would absolutely love to do, but I’m not there right now. We are not expanding right now. It’s important for me to focus on every [existing] collection and make it the best version of itself."

We're not surprised, as it seems that a kids collection would be a natural progression for one of Hollywood's most stylish mommies.

Speaking of shoes, why isn't Harlow wearing any in the picture (above)?!!!

Kim Kardashian's ShoeDazzle Ends Subscription Service, Expands To Clothing

kim-kardashian-shoedazzle.jpg

Remember when we told you about ShoeDazzle.com shutting down its UK site?

Well now we know why!

The company co-founded by Kim Kardashian, is ditching their $39.95 monthly subscription model that will allow their 10 million+ members to have a complete boutique experience.

As part of the revamp, ShoeDazzle will offer unrestricted purchasing ability, a request that came directly from the customers.

CEO Bill Strauss explains:

"Some people liked the [monthly subscription] model, but a lot of customers told us they'd like [the additional purchasing ability] to buy two or three times in one month and then maybe not for a few more months."

Strauss also announced they will start carrying lingerie and dresses, a decision that was inspired by members who demanded to be dressed "from head to toe"!

We’re excited for the changes but can’t help but wonder, now that they're carrying clothes, will they also get a name change?!!

Thoughts???
