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).

 

May Bullet Journal set-up

I had a lot of fun setting up my bullet journal for this month, so thought I would write a post to show you all how I set up for the month of May. Its not exactly how I want it right now but I’m working on it and will get it how I want it with time.

I’m using the Moleskine classic squared notebook.

I started with making a key for my bullet journal that I can follow, and then moved on to my index pages.

IMG_0324IMG_0325

For the first actual page I done a year overview for 2017.

IMG_0326

I had to make a books to read page as I have so many books that I want to read, and once I have read each one I will colour the books in.

Next is my May title page

IMG_0328I then have my monthly overview and habit tracker.

IMG_0329IMG_0330

I am keeping track of when I drink plenty of water each day, eat well, check Instagram, twitter and WordPress, publish a new blog post, and when I have read my book and eat breakfast as I very rarely eat in the morning but want to try and eat breakfast more.

I then made a page for my blog this includes blog post ideas that I have had during the month and then a blog stats tracker in the corner to track at the beginning of each month.

This is followed by a page with goals that I have set myself.

And then the weekly spreads which aren’t perfect and I’ve got to add things to the weeks ahead as I have done each week of May already, and I can just add bits that I want when I want to.

IMG_0333IMG_0334IMG_0336IMG_0337IMG_0338

There is so much more that I want to gradually add into my bullet journal as there is other things that I know I want to keep track of, but that’s the best thing with a bullet journal you can add and take away things as much as you want, you only need to add what you need.

My weekend 6th and 7th May 2017!

I had the weekend off from work so I stayed with my boyfriend for the weekend.

Saturday

On Saturday we spent the day fishing,it was a really nice sunny day and it was so peaceful and relaxing to be sat outside for the day not having to worry about anything else.Even had sausage sandwiches for lunch and then burgers for dinner whilst fishing with endless cups of tea throughout the day.We packed up at about 8:30pm and went home,and just spent the rest of the night relaxing and watching TV.


Sunday

Sunday was more of a chilled relaxed day, I hadn’t had much sleep on Saturday night so I was really tired and not really up for doing anything.

We went to a local café for breakfast, which was delicious.

We then went to our friends house as it had been his birthday on Saturday but  due to us fishing we hadn’t been able to go and see him so went round Sunday as we had a present for him, we stayed there for the afternoon, then went down to where we had been fishing on Saturday as a friend was fishing there, and stayed there for about an hour before going home, then we just relaxed for the rest of the evening watching TV.

Bullet Journal

Ever since I first seen a blog post on this I have been really intrigued by them,even more the past few days.I have spent the past few days reading blog posts and watching YouTube videos on bullet journals and starting one etc. I watched and read so much that it made me want to start one myself so much.

I went out to Waterstones and bought the Moleskine hard cover squared notebook, this was £13.99.

I also bought some papermate ink joy pens in different colours so as I will be able to add some colour to my bullet journal, these were £1.50 in Tesco. I also got some washi tape from WHSmith for £2.79.

The bullet journal was originally created by Ryder Carroll, to find out more about bullet journal I recommend going over to the website bulletjournal.com. There is also so many blog posts and YouTube videos that you can read and watch so definitely check some of those out as well. There is also loads on Pinterest as well.

I’m going to make a start on my bullet journal now and I will be doing more posts on this to show how I set mine up etc.

I would also like to know if anyone else uses a bullet journal and where you get inspiration from for different spreads.

 

April Favourites!

Today is the 1st May, where is the year going??

But 1st day of the month means it’s time for a monthly favourites post…so here are my April favourites.

Ed Sheeran-Divide

Divide_coverI have been absolutely loving this album and listening to it non-stop, even in my boyfriends car, so he now knows all the songs just as well as me haha, but he does like Ed Sheeran so I can get away with playing his music in the car.

Fast and Furious 8

fast-and-furious-8

I went to the cinema for work to watch this film, I love all the films in the series so really wanted to see this anyway. The film was so good with a good storyline, but was definitely missing something with no Paul Walker this time(RIP).

Lee Stafford chopstick styler

chopstick stylerI have wanted these for a while but have never got them, my boyfriend bought them as an Easter present, and I love them. The styler produces really tight curls which look incredible.

Lindt Bunny

14789_XXX_v1

Lindt is my favourite chocolate and I love when the gold bunnys go into the shops, my boyfriend bought me one of these for Easter and then I somehow ended up with another two as well haha, all of these have very sadly been eaten and I haven’t got any left.

Nivea express hydration primer

IMG_0294I have already mentioned this in a post recently, but I have really been loving this during April as my skin had been felling really dry, after using this for a few weeks my skin has returned back to normal and doesn’t feel dry at all, so I have been using this everyday under my makeup.
