Draco Malfoy | The Boy Who Didn't Have A Choice

A few days ago I wrote a post about how I hate Dumbledore and now I'm sticking up for Draco. Most of you are probably thinking I'm insane or that I read a different series. But let me tell you how I view Draco and maybe you'll understand why I love him and feel so sorry for him.

Spoiler Warning.

5 Disappointing Lip Products

My soul hurts just writing that title. I am a lip product addict. Lippies are my favorite product of them all. Finding lippies that were disappointing makes me so sad. But it is inevitable as I have so many lippies and I can't leave Ulta without at least 1 lippie product.

Getting a lippie that just doesn't perform or meet expectations is the most disappointing for me when it comes to disappointing products. I love lip products and I've always looking for the new best lippie. Getting one that doesn't live up to hype or doesn't perform as promised always makes me sad.

 I'm just happy there are only 5 lip products on this list today.

My Pottermore Results | My Wand, My House, My Patronus

So in honor of the 20th anniversary and Harry's birth month I've finally caved in a joined Pottermore to be sorted. I kept putting it off because like any wizard kid going to Hogwarts I was worried about my house.

I will not lie as I was taking the test I kept saying "Anything but Hufflepuff." There isn't anything wrong with Hufflepuff I just feel that I really don't fit in that house.

I took the quizzes in order of how you would be present them had you really been going to Hogwarts. Get your Wand from Ollivander's, then be sorted into your house, then learn to cast a Patronus.

Why I'm Happy Being Single

I see so many people complaining about being single. Or complaining about dating. I have never being in a relationship or felt like I had to be in one. I never really understood why people were so upset with the idea of being single. So I asked you all on Twitter if you'd be interested in this post and it was met with a pretty welcoming yes.

Monthly Favorites | June 2017

How is June almost over? This year isn't even happening. It was December yesterday, right? Maybe it feels so fast because 2016 dragged on.

I didn't try much this month in the way of makeup. Using some old favorites. I did discover a bunch of movies and TV shows this month.

25 Little Things

Life moves by so fast and sometime we don't stop to enjoy all the little parts of our lives. So inspired by Columbus's Rule #32 in Zombieland I've recently decided to enjoying the little things.

I decided to make a list of the little things that make me happy. And enjoy them more. Take time to let them make me happy.
