 Okay, so here's the thing.. I have started reading through the Harry Potter books again which lead me to start watching HP related youtube videos. I have been watching a lot of people doing the HP tag. I was 99% sure I did this tag but according to my published posts...I haven't. So, that's what I'm gonna do today.

Favourite book?
This is such a hard question as I love all of the books but I think The Chamber Of Secrets is the one I enjoyed reading the most.

Favourite movie?
 The Philosophers Stone is my favourite movie. I love how Hagrid breaks down the door to make sure Harry got his letter & gives Dudley a pigs tail for eating the cake.

Parts of the books/movies that made you cry?
I cried when Sirus, Dumbledore, Snape, Hedwig, Fred & Dobby died.  

Favourite quote? 
Happiness can be found, even in the darkest of times, if one only remembers to turn on the light. - Albus Dumbledore

If you could hook up with any HP character who would it be?
...

Favourite characters?
Bellatrix Lestrange, Luna Lovegood & Fred & George Weasley are my favourite characters.

What would your Patronus be?
 According to Buzzfeed, it would be a cat.

If you could have the Resurrection Stone, Invisibility Cloak or the Elder Wand which one would you choose?
Who wouldn't choose the invisibility cloak? The brother who picked the wand become mad with power & then was murdered for it & the brother who chose the stone brought back a loved one only for them to be so sad that he committed suicide. I'll just be invisible until my time has come to an end thanks. 

What House would you be in?
According to Buzzfeed,, I would be in Gryffindor.

If you could meet any member of the cast who would it be?
That's such a hard question! I would love to meet Emma Watson, Alan Rickman, Helena Bonham Carter etc.

Have you played any of the video games?
I played HP & The Order Of The Phoenix on my DS. I didn't like it.

If you were on the Quiddich team which position would you play?
I would probably be a beater.

Were you happy with the ending?
Yeah, the good side won. Who doesn't like happy endings?

How much does Harry Potter mean to you?

I pretty much grew up with Harry Potter, so it means quite a bit. I have always loved getting lost in a good book & this series is one I can just pick up like it's the first time I'm reading it all over again. 

 Are you a Harry Potter fan? Have you done this tag?

Current Favourite Nail Polishes

Friday, 23 October 2015


I adore dark nail polish shades & I wear them all year round but most brands only bring out new shades when the colder months come around. I recently picked up two gorgeous shades from Barry M that have quickly become a part of my most reached for stash. I thought I would share what polishes I'm currently loving with you all.

 Barry M Pit Stop - Light grey.
Essie Mind Your Mittens - Dark almost black teal.
Barry M Sprint Finish - Pomegranate / Deep berry.
OPI Black Cherry Chutney - Deep purple with fine red shimmer.
Maybelline Black Magic - Clear base with various sizes of black & silver glitter.

What are your favourite nail polishes at the moment?

Seventeen Skin Wow Liquid Highlighter

Thursday, 15 October 2015


For quite a while I have been mixing the L'Oreal lumi magique primer with my foundation / bb cream of choice as it gives my skin an incredible glow but as that's coming to an end, I thought I would try to find a cheaper alternative. After reading quite a few reviews, I decided to pick up the Seventeen skin wow liquid highlighter. I've been using it for a little while now, so I thought it was about time I shared my thoughts.

The highlighter is marketed as a multi use product - it can be used as a primer, mixed into foundation or as a typical highlighter. I have applied it in all three ways & I found that mixing it with my foundation / bb cream works the best for me. When I used it as a primer, it didn't prolong the wear of my makeup or disguise my pores & if it's used as a typical highlighter, it tends to move around any product that is underneath. The highlighter is a pearlescent pink shade that has some pretty obvious shimmer particles running through it, so it's best to take the 'less is more' approach with this. When mixed with a foundation or bb cream, the shimmer particles aren't as noticeable - it just leaves the skin with a healthy radiant glow. On days where I haven't slept very well & my skin is looking pretty dull, I have been applying the lumi magique over my primer & then mixing this with my foundation as it gives my skin an extra boost without it being over the top.

So, I didn't manage to find a cheaper liquid highlighter that is just as good as the L'Oreal offering but it's a pretty good alternative. I know this review has been pretty mixed but even though it didn't become my new holy grail glow giving product, I do really like it & will continue to use it. I definitely recommend trying it out, you never know.. you may absolutley adore it.

What is your favourite glow giving product? Are you a fan of the Seventeen liquid highlighter?
