Top 5 Harry Potter Spells I Wish Were Real


A couple of days ago I was chatting to my mum about what our favourite Harry Potter spells were, and I thought that it would make a cool blog post, so here we are! I've thought a lot about what HP spells I wish were real, have done ever since I was a kid. Come on, we've all done it: picked up a remote control or hairbrush or fork and shot a 'spell' at someone. At least, I know I have. Many times. More often than I'd like to admit. The habit has escalated some-what since my boyfriend bought me the Hermione wand for Christmas.

B. Lipsticks in Orangeboom & Doll's House



When making my first-ever vegan beauty order, two things were at the very top of my list: a mascara and a new lipstick. Of course, I bought more than just those two things (haul here) but I've been using all of it almost daily, so I now have good, all-round thoughts on all of the products. In the haul post, I mentioned that I would like to talk about the lipsticks in more detail and I was greeted with a resounding YES in the comments and on social media so here we are! The two B. lipsticks I bought were in shades that I felt were most important: orange and a dusty, nude pink.

Flat Chested & Fabulous

So today, I'm going to talk about boobs. Or should I say lack-of boobs. Yep, you read that right: todays post is all about us flat chested ladies.

* this review contains mild spoilers*
 
A Court of Thorns and Roses is a book that's been in my peripheral book vision for quite a long time. I've always stumbled across it on Goodreads or when watching some BookTube, so when I saw it in Tesco (?!) I grabbed it without giving it a thought. I'm not going to lie and say I devoured it in one sitting - it actually took me about a week to read, which is unusual for me. But I'll get to that in a minute.

Happy Birthday Luna!



I can't even believe I'm typing this.. LUNA IS ONE YEAR OLD. Actually, I take that back - I can believe it. Have you seen her recently? She's like a black, furry army tank. She's definitely not little and cute anymore. Now she's massive and beautiful! A real lady.

Lush Yuzu & Cocoa Bubbleroon

Something very exciting happened a few weeks ago... I went into Lush and bought two products I'd never tried before! I am the sort of person who, once they find what they like, will never branch out or try anything new. I have a few products from Lush that I repurchase as soon as it's run out, and I rarely stray from my favourites. But when I went in to buy my Dad & Step-Dad a bath bomb each for Fathers Day, I decided to try something new. One of them being the Yuzu & Cocoa Bubbleroon.

My Nose Piercing Experience | The First Week


Well, this is a post I never thought I'd be writing. That's mostly because I never thought I would actually ever be sitting here with a piece of metal stuck in my nose, but there you go. Yes - if you follow me on any social media (literally any, I didn't shut up about it) you will know that on the 10th of June I got my nose pierced! *cue confetti and streamers* I thought it might be helpful/interesting to document and share what happened within the first week of having it done - both the good, the bad and the downright disgusting. I will just point out now: some details of this post are gonna be pretty gross, and I'm going to be talking about blood and needles and snot. So if you're a little sensitive (I know I am, and I lived through it blehhh) then feel free to click off of this post. Also just a little note: I'm typing this up pretty much exactly as I wrote it in my phone, so I'm going to be talking in present tense even though it happened ages ago.. I hope that's not too confusing.

My New Blogging Business Cards



I was contacted a few weeks ago by the lovely team over at StressFreePrint, who wondered if I'd like to review a set of business cards. Obviously I jumped at the chance - I'm going to a few events this summer & think they'll come in so handy, especially for people who ask me 'but what's a blog?' when I'm talking to them. Now I can just be like "Here, take my card." like some American business man from a movie. 
 

3 Booktubers To Watch Today

I love reading and writing blog posts about books, but sometimes there's nothing better than watching someone talk about books that has that certain book-lover look in their eyes. I am actually really fussy about the BookTubers (Book-YouTubers) that I watch, although that may just be fussiness over YouTube in general, so today I thought I'd share my 3 current favourite BookTubers!

The Purrfect Box | June 2015


Myself and Luna received another purrfect delivery a few weeks ago! (Hahaha see what I did there?... okay I'll leave.) On the 24th of June, bang in the middle of the expected delivery dates, we were excited to open another Purrfect Box.

June Favourites



June was a month of loves for me. I think this is because I opened myself up to consider new and exciting things, where-as normally I would stick to my old favourites. I discovered two new TV shows, a bunch of new vegan beauty bits and even started reading two new books. I haven't finished the new books yet which is why they're not featured in this post!

Book Rainbow | #LoveWins 2015


Unless you were hiding under a rock on June 26th, you'll have heard the wonderful news that same-sex marriage has been legalised in all 50 states in America! I'm not gay personally, but I wholeheartedly love and support the LGBT community in everything they do and stand for, and was so pleased to hear this news. As a little celebration and show of support, being the book nerd that I am, I decided to throw together a little book rainbow, took a pic and shared it on social media. In case any of you guys don't follow me on social media, I thought I'd write up a little blog post to show you!
