On My Bedside Table

I know, I know, I kind of went missing again. But I'm back with another post, if any of you still remember me! I always love getting a little peek into other people's routines, so I thought that I'd give you a little peek into mine today. So, without further ado, here's what I keep on my bedside table!
I've been reading before I go to bed lately, and though I have about five books on the go, this is the one I've been reaching for lately. It's perfect for this spooky season, and I'm always trying to read more classics.
Burt's Bees Lemon Butter Cuticle Creme
I've been using this for quite a few months now, and I think that it's helping my nails to grow faster. It keeps my cuticles moisturized and has an amazing lemon scent. It also lasts for a very long time!
The Body Shop Born Lippy Raspberry Lip Balm
This isn't quite as moisturizing as the other lip balm in the post, but it still works quite well. I generally use this one when I wake up, and the other when I go to bed. This one has a very nice smell, and is quite long lasting.

The Harry Potter Tag

I'm finally back! I know that I said that I'd try to blog more, but my life has been really crazy lately.
I usually don't do tags, but when I was tagged by Salha to do the Harry Potter tag, I just had to! I'm completely obsessed with Harry Potter, especially lately, and I thought that this would be a great way to show my love for it.
1. What is your favorite book? and 2. What is your favourite film?
I'm putting these two together because my answer is the same for both of them: I can't pick just one! But my top three would probably be the Chamber of Secrets, the Prisoner of Azkaban, and the Goblet of Fire.

3. What is your least favourite book? and 4. What is your least favourite film?
I'm squishing these two together again, because my answer is the same for them: The Order of the Phoenix. I haven't read the books or watched the movies in quite a while, but I remember the book to be quite boring in some parts. Though I enjoyed the movie, if I had to choose one it would be my least favourite.

5. Parts of the books/ films that make you cry.

Honestly, I don't cry from books or movies! But one part that really got to me was when Luna painted all of her friends on her walls, I thought it was so sweet.

Let's Chat #2

If any of you follow my blog avidly (which I doubt you do!) you'll have noticed that I kind of went missing for a good part of September. Now, I don't know about you, but I had a very lazy summer. I didn't do much, didn't go out much, and took some much-needed time off. But with the beginning of September came lots and lots of things to do. I'm not going to go into detail about all the stuff I'm doing, as I'm sure it would bore you, but let me tell you it's a lot. So, my blog was kind of pushed aside for a while. I'm back now (at least for a week!), and I thought I'd let you know what's going on here.

September Favourites

I know, I know, I kind of went missing this month. I'm planning for my next post to be about my plans and schedule for this blog, but the short story is, I've been insanely busy and haven't had ANY time to blog until now. On my blog, I strongly value quality over quantity, and I noticed that some of my recent posts haven't been, in my opinion, very good quality. So I took a little "break" (I don't really consider it a break because I was so busy I barely had time to even listen to my own thoughts) and waited until I had the time to make better quality posts.
As I said, I'll talk about this more in my next post, so let's get into the favourites!

Some of my favourite posts from my blog this month were Recent Reads Part 24 Nail Polishes For AutumnYoutube Channels That Inspire Me, and My Everyday Makeup.

 Cake Beauty Lemon & Cream Dry Shampoo and Body Powder
I wanted to try a new, cruelty-free dry shampoo, so I picked this one up, and I love it! It does a good job of making my hair feel fresher, and adds a tiny bit of volume. It also smells delicious, and keeps my hair smelling good all day.
NYX Honey Dew Me Up Primer
I have quite dry skin, so I always like to use a moisturizing primer. This one helps to make sure that my foundation doesn't look too cakey, and adds a slight glow to my skin. I love the way it makes my skin feel!
