Harry Potter Challenge Day 3 and 4!

Oops! Messed up already, I worked all day yesterday and was so tired when i got home that i just wanted to go to bed, so here is days 3 and 4 together in one post.

Favourite Hogwarts student during Harry’s time

I don’t really have a favourite, I like different characters for different reasons,

Neville Longbottom-Its great to see the transformation that Neville goes through in each part the story, he starts off with no confidence at all, and by the final part of the story he is leading the other students to rebel against the carrows.

The Weasley twins-I love the Weasley twins simply for everything that they do, and when they left Hogwarts to open their joke shop, the swamps and fireworks were an amazing way to go.

Favourite Order of the phoenix member

Nymphadora Tonks is my favourite member, she can change her appearance whenever she wants(who wouldn’t want to do that!),she is a great character in the books and films.

 

Harry Potter Challenge-Day 2

Favourite character

My favourite character would have to be Hermione, there is nothing that she doesn’t know and without her Harry and Ron would not get through any of the situations they have been in and their homework would just never get done.

She stays loyal to both Harry and Ron throughout the films even in the deathly hallows when Ron is being a complete ass and goes off on his own she leaves things behind for him to follow them if he decided to come back.

Throughout each book and film you see her grow so much, in the philosophers stone she isn’t really bothered about having friends and is more interested in her schoolwork, but you see her change to value the friendships that she has and as the books/films progress she becomes a lot more rebellious with everything that she does, and by the last book/film she isn’t bothered about breaking rules to help Harry with the task that he was set to finish.

Harry Potter Challenge-Day 1

Favourite Book

I have said before that my favourite book is the deathly hallows, because of all that happens in that book and that you get to see some characters in ways you haven’t seen them before.

Thinking about it more i would say that my favourite book is the goblet of fire,i love the idea of the triwizard tournament and the challenges that Harry and the others had to face with it. The yule ball was great as it was a sort of prom for the students which they don’t get when finishing Hogwarts. Obviously this is where the books take a different turn with Voldemort returning to life and even though the books are for children it adds something to the books after this one that make them more adult(i would read the books either way to be honest).

 

It’s been so long!

Hi everyone

So I’ve just realised that it has been 2 weeks since i last wrote a blog post, I need to get back into it, i spent this morning catching up on a weeks worth of blog posts from everyone because i haven’t been able to keep up to date with them.

I have been working loads and last week worked over 57 hours, so i was feeling pretty exhausted from that. The other thing which is probably the main thing that has stopped me from writing posts was me and my boyfriend of 8+ years splitting up, it effected me quite badly for a few weeks now and it was only a few days ago that i started feeling better about everything and realised i don’t need him to be happy. I’ve been getting intro my fitness, going out running regularly and doing workouts at home, this has improved my mood a lot.

I really want to get back to blogging more regularly as i enjoy it so much so thought i would start a blogging challenge so i can get back into writing posts that way, I’ve done the 30 day blogging challenge already so thought i would do the Harry Potter challenge this time. Posts for that will be starting tomorrow.

I look forward to getting back into blogging more and coming up with more blog post ideas.

 

Shopping haul

So yesterday I decided to go shopping as I wanted to get some new trainers,I had no intention of buying anything else but I got the trainers that I wanted and then ended up spending more money after that.

Because of this I decided to do a haul to show what I got.

Sports Direct

Nike Flex 2016 running trainers-£30

This was the reason I went shopping in the first place and like i said this was going to be the only thing that i bought. There were so many trainers to choose from but i seen these and wanted them instantly,i love the colours,and i went for a run using them and they are so  comfortable to wear.

TK Maxx

iPhone 7 sports sleeve-£5.99

IMG_0389

I have one of these sleeves but can no longer use it as it was for the iPhone 5,so I needed a new one. I only went in TK Maxx to have a look what they had, I seen this and had to get it at such a good price and its pink.

HMV

Audio mixx play 1 wireless Bluetooth earphones-£12.99

I got these more for when I go running as i hate having wires flying around getting in my way, so these are perfect, and again there pink. I used them when i went running yesterday and they are brilliant, the sound quality is great and they connect up to my phone really quickly.

Superdrug

Rimmel make up was on 3 for 2 offer so i got the following as I’m getting low anyway

IMG_0391

Rimmel wake me up foundation-303 true nude-£8.99

Rimmel clear complexion setting powder-£3.99

Rimmel camouflage collection extra 3D lash mascara-£4.99

Well that’s all that I bought on my little shopping trip spent so much more money than i was planning on spending but i bought stuff that i needed/will use so can’t tell myself off too much for it.

 

 

May Favourites 

I have just realised it has been over a week since I wrote a new blog post, my head hasn’t been in the game at all recently.

I’m not having a great time at the moment i may do a post about it but at this time i cant bring myself to write about it, but i still want to get my usual posts up as much as i can.

It’s the 1st June so here is my May favourites!

Bullet Journal

I have been really enjoying using my bullet journal to stay organised, and i have found so much inspiration from other bloggers on how to set mine up the way i want it. I wrote a post on my May set up here if you didn’t see the post. l will be writing a post on my June set up also that should be up at the weekend i am hoping.

Zoella bath latte

Zoella_Beauty_Bath_Latte_400ml_1464094821

I decided to buy this as i hadn’t tried it before and wanted a new bubble bath and i love it. The packaging says it is enriched with almond cacao and honey, and once in the water you can really smell the almond. It leaves my skin feeling really soft as well which I love.

Sushi

As I have said before i love seafood, and i hadn’t tried sushi until recently, and i really enjoy it, I’ve been buying it for my lunch at work as i find it really filling for me and I’m not really eating a lot, and its a lot better than other things that i have for my lunch normally.

Converse

chucks-1427322_1920

I have been wearing my converse a lot the last month they are so comfy to wear when I’m just walking around, shopping and i use them for work as well.

 

Looking back on the past year!

A few days ago I was thinking back to this time last year and at that time I didn’t think I was going to be where I am today.

As I said before last year was a bad time for me mentally. I was suffering with depression and anxiety all due to stress at work. I nearly left my old job this time last year but I didn’t because I didn’t see what the job was actually doing to me. Everyone around me was telling me I needed to do something to help myself.

There was a few months that I felt better and more myself,but then in October the same feeling in my head came back again. I didn’t want to do anything,my moods were quite low most of the time and if I was feeling good it wouldn’t take long for that to change again, I didn’t want to be around people and if I went into a low mood I had to be by myself. It was when all this started again that I did do something and I applied for another job.

I started my new job in January and since then I have never felt better. I occasionally have moments of anxiety still but not at all like I did before.

I then decided to start this blog and I am so happy that I did because this has been the other thing that I needed to help me. I never really done anything for myself before and when I thought about blogging I couldn’t do it,but I have been doing it since January and I’m so glad I did as I have had something to concentrate my time on when I’m not at work and not doing other things. 

I have now got 226 followers on this blog and want to thank everyone for the support that they give,as it just gives me more encouragement to carry on blogging.
