MY YOUTUBE UPLOADS UPDATE.

Hello everyone - I hope you're well! Today is a rainy Saturday, and I've spent part of it like a drowned rat - so I'm HEAVILY missing the sunshine! Anyway, I keep forgetting about updating my blog, and I've been focusing on my YouTube.

Ever since my love for Harry Potter has gained speed, I wanted to revamp my YouTube channel, talking about different aspects of it. So I thought it'd be nice to update you all with what I've been uploading, and I'll remember to also post it here too. So without further adieu...



2019 Channel Trailer


I thought it'd be best to upload this one first onto this post, because it kind of explains everything down to a 't'. This was a spur of the moment idea to film and post this, hence the bad lighting and the crappy editing lols.





My New Love For Harry Potter


I was really excited to upload this (& I'm aware how fangirly I sound - don't worry!) But somehow, I fell down the rabbit hole and also decided, "why not film a video?" The video pretty much explains itself, tbh.





Gryffindor Makeup Look FAIL.


I was so excited to film this one and was proper G U T T E D that it failed. I'm not an expert on makeup and would never claim to be. So just enjoy me absolutely failing.






GeekGear June Unboxing


This was my first subscription box I've ever had and my first unboxing video. It was so stressful because my camera kept dying and whilst editing, I realised the whole bloody video was blurry. So annoyed. 






&&&&&that's pretty much it for now. I'll be attempting regular uploads from now. Every Sunday at 4pm UK time, there will be a brand new video on my channel. See you there :)

My Skincare Routine

Hello everyone and welcome back! Today I wanted to do an update on my skincare routine. I've definitely done one before, but not too sure if it's just on my blog or on my YouTube. I didn't want to too much writing, as the video explains itself. However, I apologise for the vlog-style video and also the shakiness.





Products mentioned in the video:

  • Beauty Bay EYN 9 Shade Eyeshadow Palette
  • L'Oreal Paris Fine Flowers Cleansing Milk
  • L'Oreal Paris Gel Cream Face Wash
  • L'Oreal Paris Cleansing Toner

My New Love For Harry Potter!

Wow, hello. It’s definitely been a while since I last posted on my blog. I’ve been really busy finishing my book - well I guess finishing the first draft. Having to focus on both my book and my blog, was way too much pressure for me. So I’ve spent the entirety of May, putting a month’s worth of blog posts together.

So let’s get on with it! Enough apologies and all that shite! This first blog post is all about my new found love of Harry Potter. Which sounds like a weird statement to me, as every few months for a few years, I get the urge to watch the films from start to finish. But finding them online can be a hassle. However, when I’m ill - which to be fair, is a rarity - it’s the only thing I want to do. Secret? I never actually read the books growing up (I know - shocker!) My brother read them when we were kids, and I remember him giving me one at random. However, the first page was so confusing, I just stuffed it in the back of my wardrobe. And now after reading the books, I realised I’m pretty sure he gave me Goblet Of Fire. So no wonder I was lost!

I decided to do this post as both a video and a blog post, because I wanted to have a proper geeky talk about my love for Harry Potter. And this post would’ve been too long! So please enjoy the video below!




(Side note: I’ll be doing plenty of Harry Potter related posts/videos this month. So keep an eye on my blog! I’m uploading Monday, Wednesday and Friday!)

ORGANISING MY BOOKCASE!

Hello everyone! Hope you're all doing well! Today wasn't supposed to be an organising style video, however I was working this weekend, so I haven't had chance to edit the skincare routine (coming Friday). But I filmed and edited this on Thursday, on my day off, so I've got a post for today!

I hope this isn't too boring for you, however I really enjoyed these kinds of video. Let me know in the comments, what you think of my new and organised bookcase.

Bedroom tour!

Hello lovelies and happy Monday! Today is a brand new week which is amazing, and it’s also my big brother’s birthday! Anyhoo... I wanted to do a post all about my room. This is definitely a different style of post for me, however I love watching people showing interior designs; such as Anna Saccone-Joly, who shows updates on Instagram stories.

 Because this used to be my - ironically - brother’s bedroom and then he moved to Ireland. So it’s now mine. For years, we spent time moving me in and out of this room, because he and his now wife, couldn’t decide where they wanted to live. (Annoying? Yes).

I’ve wanted to decorate my bedroom, ever since I moved in to be honest. It was very masculine and more of my brother’s taste. No offence to him, but I didn’t like it very much. So I started with bedding and then kept hinting to my dad. When I went away to Spain last year, he finally changed it, and I LOVED IT!
I’m so gutted I don’t have a before picture, but oh well! I love the grey walls and the grey carpet. I have an obsessed with grey at the minute, and it’s quite a neutral colour. I feel as if any bright colour could go with it. I also have an obsession - as do most people these days - with marble as well. Just something about it. 
As you will have seen in a really old blog post, I did move my desk into my room. Although annoyingly, the internet has decided it no longer wants to reach my laptop up there, so working is quite difficult sometimes. Especially blogging. I’m trying to clean it up more, as admittedly, my desk has turned into my dumping ground. (Tracy Beaker reference there)

Where the wardrobe and draws are, is where my bed used to bed. And I hated it. Being too close to both the radiator and the window, isn’t something I like. I asked my dad if I could switch the entire furniture, and I’m glad I did. Because it looks so much better now! I also have the boiler in my room. Which is not fun, but ah well. 
For my birthday last month, my dad bought me a bookcase. I realise this might seem like an odd gift, however I wanted somewhere to put my books and to organise it. (I love organising, I’m weird that way). So I was delighted when it arrived on my birthday, and that’s still a bit of a mess. I seem to start projects and then forget about them. Oops?
The room still isn’t 100% complete. Some of the walls are still bare, however it’s a work in progress. I still need to add more personal touches to it, so I’ll be sure to update you, most likely on Instagram stories, so you can see the updates there. Thanks for reading and see you Friday!

Birthday weekend in Leceister!

Hola! Hope you’re all well! It feels so good to be back blogging!!! I hope my first post wasn’t too boring, but I wanted to do a quick catchup, before I get back into different posts.

So as I slightly mentioned in my previous post, I travelled down to Leicester on 22nd February, to celebrate our birthday weekend with my twin/best friend Phoebe. (Just for the record, we’re not actually twins. Just have the same birthday. We’re a year apart!) And the reason why we chose Leicester, is because it was the halfway point for us both, which made the trip for us fair.
Phoebe and I decided we didn’t want to stay in just a regular old hotel room, with just a bed and bathroom. We wanted a little place for us to be able to chill out and watch tv, etc. So we decided to take a look on air bnb. I’d never actually used it before, but I always loved the concept. (This is obviously not a spon, but yeah) We finally found a really nice one; it fit both of our personalities and aesthetics in one apartment and it was perfect. So we booked it and hey ho! The trip was happening! [if you want to see the apartment we stayed in, click here].
It took me just under 2 hours to get there. I soon realised, after parking up - horrendously - that it was a student area. This most definitely wasn’t a problem at all; but it was something I noticed. Phoebe still had around a 20 minute drive, and then after a quick phone call, realised it would probably be best to meet somewhere to do some shopping. So we met in a shopping centre, had food, did some shopping; and then met one of the co-owners at the apartment. We. Were. In. Love. It was so much better than the pictures, and we couldn’t believe our luck for the price! 

Whilst we were there we went to see Leicester Abbey, we went for a lovely meal at Prezzo for a birthday meal, and then spent Sunday hungover (just me), due to Phoebe hating prosseco and us having 2 bottles of it. We watched A LOT of Gilmore Girls, and I am officially obsessed with it!
Didn't want to babble on for too long, however it was the perfect weekend, and I really enjoyed it. A weekend of reconnecting and catching up!

Oh, hi 2019! How are ya?!


Well… hi there! It’s 2019 and I’m finally blogging on here! I’ve missed this little space of mine! I wanted to do a little catchup post, letting you know what you’ve missed, and then I’m going to try and post regularly.

So here's what you've missed...

I went to Northern Ireland to visit the famalam in November, and to celebrate my nephew's 2nd birthday. (He hasn't grown to love taking pictures with me, like this one has). It was so much fun, and he can even say my name. So this makes me very happy! 

Family time for me is everything. I'm such a family-orientated person, and whenever I'm surrounded the Irish lot, everything feels whole. I also love how chill it is when we go over. As you can see, we did go out as well and it was delish!



Celebrated Christmas and the New Year. I felt very Christmassy once all my shopping was done. Before then - not so much. Christmas has been bittersweet for me, since I was 15 years old. Just because I spend time separately with both parents, and sometimes it gets a little tough. However, every year as a tradition, my dad and I will go visit my nana ans grandad. We say hello for an hour or so, and then all the men go with my grandad to his club and have a few. 

For the past two years, I go from my nana's and go to my mum's local pub. We have a bottle of prosecco and cheers to Christmas. A nice, new tradition, now that I'm an adult.

The New Year was standard. I didn't actually stay awake for the countdown, and my first memory of 2019 was my dad shouting me awake. I said, "what?", saw the fireworks, said "happy new year" and then went to bed. Classic.





Another thing that's happened is... I finished my book. It was emotional for me, and it still feels weird knowing there's nothing else to write. My little world I've created in words, is now complete. Nothing left to add. Now it's time to try my hardest to get it out there. Fingers crossed.




On the last weekend of February, I travelled all the way down to Leicester, to see Phoebe and to also celebrate our birthday together. Some of you may or may not know, but Phoebe and I share the same birthday. Yep. Best friends and twins. (Not literally lolz) And it was so lovely to spend the morning together for the first time in the (nearly) six years we've been friends! 

Not going to say too much on this one, as I have a full blog post planned.



And finally... I turned 24. Probs guessed that from the Leicester section. Yep. I'm 24 now and life is good again. I have a thing about even numbers, so it makes me happy knowing I'm finally an even number and not an odd. Weirdo, I know.





Aaaaaaand that's all folks! I'll be back on Friday with a post all about Leicester!
