Unboxing : Owl Crate September 2018

Image
My problem is if I see the words Harry Potter then I buy the box.

Welcome back to ANOTHER Owl Crate unboxing. I really hope you're not getting bored of these unboxing blogs because I have at least one more coming up  The theme for the September box was Masters of Disguise (Oooo). As soon as I read that the box will include items from Harry Potter and Six of Crows I knew I had to get it.
Before I comment on the actual items in this box, I want to take a moment to appreciate the illustration on the Spoiler card, and pin. I think it is so beautiful in the simplest form. The setting of the masked ball is so appropriate to the theme.  I mean, how many times have we seen films where a simple mask suddenly makes everyone not realise who the person is? Too many times.

The disguises used in Harry Potter are actually a tad more complicated than that. As we know (unless you've never watched Harry Potter) , the Marauders are the masters of disguise in Harry Potter due to their Animagus f…

Unboxing : Owl Crate May 2018

I am going to be very honest with you - I was not totally impressed with this box.


In May of 2018, Owl Crate released a crate themed Fight Like A girl. Items in this crate were included in order to show that you have to be careful when you say "You fight like a girl" because you may end up battling Inej Ghafa and trust me when I say that that isn't going to end well.

Speaking of Inej, a print of her is included in this box. The illustration of her is near perfect (I never imagined Inej with a crooked nose). However, from the dark clouds behind her, that represent Ketterdam to the crouched position that symbolises that she is Kaz's Spider that is an excellent spy, all the elements in this print are perfect.

Out of Print have teamed up with Owl Crate to bring to life an enamel pin inspired by Hermione Granger. The pin is only small but I think that it will stand out amongst other pins due to its gold outline and detail. This item is one of those things that I get scar…

Niall Horan Concert & Lalalab review (inc. discount)

Image
This was by far my favourite trip to the United Kingdom.
Hello my lovelies. I am so happy that you have taken the time to look at my blog and that you are actually reading this right now.
Today is going to be a mixed blog, as in I am going to narrate my experience of going to a Niall Horan concert. I am also going to review a product by Lalalab.



If you have seen one of my earlier posts on this blog (A-Z of me), you would know that I am a huge One Direction fan. What I may have never spoken of is that Niall Horan is my favourite member of that band. In the earlier days of One Direction he was very insecure, and as an insecure girl myself I related to him and declared his cute face my favourite.
As any other One Direction fan I was heartbroken with the news that they will be going on an 18 month hiatus. 3 years later they are still on hiatus; however, I am grateful for it. If it wasn't for the band to be on break, I would have never gotten the chance to meet my favourite.
This trip…

Unboxing : April 2018 Owlcrate

Hello there, my lovelies!
It has been such a long time since I had posted on this blog. I had announced my break from my blog back in December/January, and I honestly really needed the break from it all. A lot of people come into blogging thinking that it is an easy job; however, anyone who takes it seriously knows all the hard work that goes into every post. I am not going to sit here and say that I take blogging as seriously as other bloggers, but the amount of effort that I do put into it just becomes too much sometimes.
With that said, the summer holidays are here so I have some more extra time to write and put myself into blogging. That is why I am back today with a post. Today's post is all about Owl Crate. I have shared my love for Owl Crate before and at one point I had decided that I wouldn't be doing a review of every box that I get. However, in the past few months I had gotten two boxes that I just have to share. If you have read past posts on this blog then you would…

Book Review : What's a girl gotta do? by Holly Bourne

Image
This book is both entertaining and educational.


Before I get into this review I want to warn all of you that this blog post is not for people who turn their noses up at Feminism. And I do not mean that Extremist, men-hating feminism. This post is going to talk about the equality of both males and females. If you’re not into that, then click the ‘X’, or you could be a better person by reading this review, then reading the book and educating yourself.

About the TrilogyThe Spinster Club trilogy is a set of books that brings together the drama of teenage years, the reality of society, and fiction. Each book follows Evie, Amber and Lottie on their individual adventures, but highlights the support given by friends. The first book Am I Normal Yet? follows Evie on her journey of controlling her OCD, whilst How Hard Can Love Be? Is a story about how Amber found love for the first time. 

 What’s A Girl Gotta Do?  book is the third book in the Spinster Club trilogy. This time it is Lottie’s journey…

Lush Review : 2017 Christmas Exclusives

I Have concluded that some of my bath bombs are on strike and have decided to not work properly.



 Golden Slumbers Bath Bomb

Golden Slumbers is exactly what its name says that it is. It is a gold coloured bath bomb, full of lavender oil, lavender absolute, chamomile oil and neroli. This concoction will life your mood right before making you want to doze off in your nice, warm bath. The Golden Slumbers bath bomb smells amazingly natural, and the scent persists throughout the dissolving and throughout your bath. It even stays on your skin after you exit your bath. Although the lavender is quite strong, the chamomile oil adds a hint of sweetness.

When this bath bomb first hits, it starts to begin to dissolve immediately. Although Golden Slumbers is meant to spread foam across the surface, my bath bomb sank to the bath and started fizzing out at the bottom of the bath. This did not affect the consistency of it dissolving. Meaning, it dissolved properly but, instead on the surface of the wat…
