Wizards, unite!

We're big fans of Harry Potter here, so we're super excited for Wizards Unite to finally launch worldwide. And since it's launching on the start of summer, it's a great way to get out and have some fun while meeting other Harry Potter fans!

If you're looking for recommendations, we have a few. The Harry Potter Interchangeable Backpack/Messenger Bag is nice, because it has enough room for all of your essentials and then some. Plus, having the option of changing between a backpack or messenger bag is always a bonus.

We also like the Vans x Harry Potter collection, because there are a ton of different styles and designs to choose from. I personally like their low-top and slid-in styles, because they're easy to get on. Plus, the new Harry Potter styles are sure to turn some heads.

And since summer can hit full force, we highly recommend always having a water bottle handy, like the Apothecary Water Bottle from Boxlunch. The design is cool and the bright blue color makes it easy to spot. And we always love a bottle with a screw top lid and flip-open spout!
