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

IMG_0388

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.

 

Favourite apps to use for blogging

A lot of the time I am not at home to be on my laptop so I have to use my phone for blogging stuff,I thought I would share my favourite apps that I use for blogging.

WordPress
I use the WordPress app everyday,you can use it to catch up on latest blog posts from the blogs that you follow,check your blogs stats etc.You can even use it to write a blog post and schedule/publish it when it is ready which is a feature I have use quite a lot as I’m not at home very often.


Twitter
I use this to share my blog posts when they are published.So many people are on twitter and I use it to follow people who’s blogs I follow as it’s a great way to keep up/in touch with them other than on their blog.


Instagram
Again same as twitter really I use it to share blog posts that I have written and follow so many other accounts as well.


Bloglovin’
This is a great way to share your blog posts and keep up to date with blogs you follow,and what I like is I can follow other blogs that aren’t on WordPress as well so as I’m able to see latest blog posts from them also.


Pinterest 
Their is so much to see on Pinterest,you can search for something and will instantly find it.If you are stuck for inspiration you will definitely find it on Pinterest,I also share my blog on there also.

Buffer
I started using buffer a few weeks ago,you can link it to social media accounts and post from the app,I use it to schedule posts for while I’m at work or doing something where I may not be able to check social media.


Canva
I use canva on my laptop to make my blog post headers,when I seen that they had an app also I had to get it,as it is great if I am writing a blog post whilst away from home using my phone I can still make a header as I would if I was at home.
