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.

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.
