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.

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.

Title: A Court of Thorns and Roses
Author: Sarah J. Maas
Genre: New Adult Fantasy
Length: 416 pages
Published: 5th May 2015
Series: First book in a trilogy
* 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.

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.

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.

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.

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!

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 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!

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!
