My Favorite Autumn Lips

Fall is the best time of year! The weather is colder, the leaves are changing and lippies are berry! Now I wear berries all year around and not all the lippies in today's post are berry but the Berries are the best! 


Hello October, Hello Autumn

October 3, 2017


Today it finally started to feel like Autumn. The air was much colder and it was a bit chilly in the house all day. Which I happen to love by the way. ! It made me so happy to finally feel Autumny. It made me think off all my favorite things about fall. And that is when I started to write a list of all the things I'm delighted to say Hello to and the things I am overjoyed to say goodbye too.

I was instantly interested in trying it and doing a Product VS.

My Beauty Product Wish List 2 | ft Too Faced, Tarte, NYX, ABH, MAC, Nars, Kat Von D, & More!

September 9, 2017


Back in February of this year I posted My Beauty Product wish list. That post was my 100th post! I can't believe this is my 210th blog post and my 126th post of 2017!

In that post I shared with you all some of the products I was dying to get my hands on. I only crossed off one of the products on that list. Real Techniques 6 piece sponge set. 

I also made a list of Lippies I am drying to try! This was a huge list of lippies I don't need but I desperately want. I haven't crossed anything off of that one yet. 

Even though I only crossed off one item of one list that doesn't stop my list from growing. I've nearly doubled it since the last post. So I thought I'd post a part 2 with all the new products I'm lusting after before the list gets too big.


My Back To School Must Haves | Favorite School/Office Supplies

September 7, 2017



Around this time in 2015 I did a post about What's in My School Makeup Bag. This year I thought it would be fun to do a post about all my favorite, most used school/office supplies. I'm not in school at the moment but I still use notebooks and other office supplies more than I ever used when I was in school. 

I really love going through the aisles of school supplies on sale this time of year. I go through so many notebooks and pens and pencil lead, these sales are the best! I love buying things on sale and in large quantities when I know I'm going to use it. Back to school sales are a dream! 

So now that those sales are in full swing I thought it would be great for me to make a Back to School Essentials.

I Love Well Written Villains

September 5, 2017

My Unpopular Opinions About Harry Potter

August 24, 2017


Every fandom comes with unpopular opinions. People who love something like Harry Potter or Supernatural form strong opinions about their fandoms. A lot of people tend to hold the same opinions and if you hold the opposite opinion it can be hard to argue for your side.

35 Before 35

August 21, 2017

I Hate Summer

August 16, 2017


It's hot, it's muggy, it's humid as hell. I hate it. So today since there is about 2 months left in Summer and I'm dreading it I thought it'd be the perfect time to go on a little rant about why I hate summer.

Taking A Step Back

August 2, 2017


Until the last week of July I uploaded a post every other day in 2017. I loved it but I became to much. I really love creating the content that I've made so far this year but the pressure to upload every other day was too much. 

The Harry Potter TAG

July 31, 2017



I'm a HUGE Harry Potter fan! I watch the films at least 3 times a year and I have so many HP shirts and jumpers. I am dying to go to the Wizarding World! I need to go!

Anyway as a lover of Harry Potter I thought it would be fun to do the Harry Potter Tag today! As it is Harry Potter's 37th Birthday today. And this year marks the 20th anniversary of Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone book's release!


Monthly Favorites | July 2017

July 29, 2017



I legitimately have no idea where July when. I'm writing this on the 27th and when I realized yesterday was the 26th I thought my laptop and phone were broken. I honestly have know idea what happened and I'm pretty sure I'm going to wake up on Christmas morning tomorrow.

Anyway I've fallen through a wormhole and this month has disappeared but I still had a few favorites this month. So let's get into it.


Thoughts I Had While Re-Watching Harry Potter & the Philosopher's Stone

July 27, 2017


Since this year marks 20 years since the first book's release and this is Harry's birth month I have been watching the movies a ton this month. I realized I had a lot of unanswered questions so I decided to watch the whole series over and jot down everything.

That ended up being way way to0 long so I'm going to just be going Philosopher's stone today. It is still a long one so grab a nice cup of tea and settle in.

Warning Spoilers. Obviously.

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

July 22, 2017


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.


Why I Hate Dumbledore

I hate Dumbledore... So hear me out. 

5 Disappointing Lip Products

July 15, 2017


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

July 11, 2017


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.

Things I Wish I Knew When I Started Blogging

July 7, 2017


I think every blogger writes a post like this at some point. We look back at when we started and wish someone had given us some words of wisdom. So today I want to tell you the things I wish I knew when I started blogging.


Why I'm Happy Being Single

July 5, 2017


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

June 29, 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

June 25, 2017


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.


Product VS - Bronzers

June 23, 2017


Last week I told you about my favorite bronzers. Today I thought I'd put all the bronzers I own head to head to see which one is the best. I currently own 5 bronzers but only put 4 in the favorites post.

I love the bronzers from my favorites post but there has to be one that is better than the best right? So which bronzer is the best? Urban Decay Beached Bronzer, Benefit Hoola Bronzer, Lorac Matte Bronzer, NYX Matte Bronzer or Rimmel London Natural Bronzer?


Why Harry Potter Should Have Been A TV Show

June 21, 2017


When books get turned into movies so much is lost. I really wish they would do TV shows honestly. So much import but little things get cut when the book hit the big screen. So many details could be saved if they make the books TV shows instead.

This only applies to series but series are pretty much the only books that get so much dumped during production. If they were TV shows instead 1-3 chapters could make up an episode and each book could be a season. It would be so much better that way. 

So here is why I think Harry Potter should have been a TV show.

A Blog Without a Niche | Why I Blog About Anything & Everything

June 17, 2017


When I started this blog I really only wrote about beauty. I wanted to do DIYs and lifestyle too. I decided early on that I wanted this blog to be about everything I loved. I wanted to be about my life and my loves. So that's what I decided to do this year.


My Favorite Bronzers

June 15, 2017


Summer is almost upon us! That means everyone is about to go bronzer crazy! I really love bronzers! I'm a huge fan of matte, warm bronzers. So that will be a common theme in this post.

I fell in love with bronzer so much over the last year! I think it may partially the fact that I'm super pale so everything looks orange and partially the fact that it was only recently that I learnt how to truly use bronzer.


My Summer Bucket List

June 13, 2017


How is the first day of summer a week from today? This year has flown by so far! When you're a kid they don't tell you how fast time goes the older you get. Time feels like trudging through sludge as a kid. And as an adult it feels like it's going to fast you haven't even lived it.

So I've decided to start making seasonal bucket lists to help me slow down and enjoy things. I have a 35 Before 35 List but I want to make season lists. So today I have for you a list of 40 things I want to do this Summer from June 21st to September 22nd.
