Harry Potter Geek Gear Haul βš‘

Hi guys πŸ‘‹πŸ»

So, late last year I got an awesome glass cabinet for all of my Harry Potter Merch!

If you’ve been around here before (or you know me) you’ll know that I’m a massive Harry Potter fan.. ⚑

So this is very exciting!! Any Potterheads on here!?!

I will be doing a post on here, of my HP Cabinet once it’s as I want it, so keep your eyes peeled for that πŸ‘€

Let’s get into the haul…

There was a sale on Geek Gear and I just couldn’t resist buying a few new bits that I didn’t have.

Mini Skele-Gro Bottle πŸ’€
Umbridge Cat Plate πŸ’
Yule Ball Invite 🏰
Neville’s Remembrall 🌟
Hogwarts Crest Print β€πŸ’šπŸ’›πŸ’™

I love that the items came packed in (what I assume is intentional) Weasley Wizard Wheezes coloured packaging πŸ‘ŒπŸ»

I can’t wait to add these to the cabinet.

The print is going up in our room, with our other ones.

And I’m going to keep my eyes peeled for more cool HP merch, because now I have a cabinet I can never have too much haha 🀣🀣


Have you guys got any cool HP Merch recommendations?

Or personal favourite pieces?

Until Next Time,

Roseanne πŸ™‚

Blogmas 2019 Day Eighteen: Affordable Christmas decorations πŸŽ…πŸ»

If you want to do Christmas on a budget, because let’s be honest, although we love the frills it’s all about the quality time, kindness and love that we share with our friends and family. Those are the things we remember.

But, that being said, I bloody love the decs! So heres a way to go full Christmas without breaking the bank, and we have Wilko to thank for it with their beautiful but incredibly reasonable Christmas decoration ranges.

I literally couldn’t choose between the cute tree decorations in this range (as it fits our Red, Gold & Green).

They would also make lovely gifts.


Alpine range


Polar Bear, Β£3

Wooden star tree, Β£3

Green metal tree, Β£2

Packs of 3 baubles, Β£4

Gingerbread biscuit car decoration, Β£1

Tree star topper, Β£2

Packs of plain coloured baubles, from Β£1

They have loads of different ones in different variety packs and sizes.

Sacks, Β£6 Stockings, Β£4

Pom Pom Garland, Β£1

Pom Pom Garland with bells, Β£6

Large bells silver and red, Β£1


I love this collection and it is one of a few that they have.

This one fits in perfectly with our red/gold/green theme.

They also have a icy collection that is lots of whites, silvers and blues, as well as a gold collection and a rose gold collection.

I have bought a few things from the alpine collection (I couldn’t resist!!) I also picked up a couple of the polar bears as I thought these were super cute and would be quite generic for any tree.

I’ve personalised these, with the year, to go into a few hampers that I’ve put together for family members.


ONE WEEK UNTIL CHRISTMAS!!

OOTD: Night out casual πŸ’‹

I had drinks with my work friends last night so I thought I would do a blog post of my outfit and make up look.

We started off at a casual bar so I went for a casual night out look. We did actually end up in town (& I was very thankful for my flats!)

We’ll start with the outfit…

I went for a black and white combo with this outfit.

The jumper is a black and white mix from H & M. 

The black ankle grazer skinny jeans are from Primark.

The black choker comes from a set of three, again from Primark.

I pinned a little badge to my jumper to add a bit detail.

Red goes really well with black and the little rose is really cool. I matched my lipstick with this too and they both added a pop of colour to the look⚘🌷

My bag is from Primark too! It’s black with a suede effect flap on the front with gold detailing. 

The black faux suede shoes with gold detailing are also from Primark.
I love how well these accessories go with the outfit and with each other. 

On to make up…

A Christmas party make up look: Blogmas day 21 πŸ’‹

Since I had my work Christmas party last night I thought I would do a Christmas party make up look for you guys. I loved this look with a red lip and bronze eyeshadow. 

The products that I used were:

  • The body shop bb cream in Shade no 2 mixed with Bourjois healthy mix radiance reveal foundation in the Shade light beige, 1 pump of each.
  • Collection lasting perfection Concealor in Cool medium & Bourjois radiance reveal Concealor in Ivory.
  • Clinique face primer creme
  • Revoltuion blusher ‘love’
  • Make up obsession highlighter in the shade ‘bronze’ 
  • Revolution make up eye primer 
  • Make up obsession eyeshadow in the shade ‘rich’ & Maybelline Nudes palette.
  • Diorshow mascara in black 
  • Tanya Burrs perfect brows palette
  • Rimmel lip Liner in the shade 004 ‘Indian pink’
  • Tanya Burrs lipstick in the shade ‘Big kiss’

Brushes

  • Real techniques beauty blender; I used this for foundation & concealor.
  • Real techniques buffing brush; I use this brush to apply blusher.
  • Real techniques base eyeshadow brush; I used this to apply the base colour of my eyeshadow & the darker colour into the outer corner.
  • Real Technique multi-task brush; I use this brush to just wipe away any excess and clean up the look.
  • Primark fan brush for highlighing; this Brush applies highlighter flawlessly. I only recently got this after wanting one for ages and I would 100% recommend getting one of these.
  • Revolution, Limited edition angled brush; I used this brush for my eyebrows.

    I used a mixture of two face products in order to give more coverage all night without being too heavy. I love the mix of my bb cream and the healthy mix foundation, it works really well. I used a pump of each on my beauty blender to apply it to my face.

    I used the Collection concealor for my face and any blemishes or spots and the Bourjois concealor under my eyes which is why I go for a lighter shade to make under my eyes brighter.

    I bought a few of the products listed above expecially for this make up look, these were…

    I love the colours that you can get by ‘Make up obsession’ and I went for a glowy bronze look with the highlighter and eyeshadow as I thought this would work really well with the red lip. The eye primer I used (from my beauty advent calender) was also fab and my eyeshadow stayed perfect all night.

    Tanya Burrs lipsticks from her Autumn collection are AMAZING. people kept asking me all night what lipstick I was wearing and commenting on how well it had stayed on even whilst I was eating the meal. I love the slightly darker shade of red in this lipstick, it’s party perfect.

    Here’s the finished look!

    I was really please with this make up look & it went perfectly with my outfit but would be so versatile for so many party looks! 

    I hope you liked the look too πŸ’‹

    In my beauty advent calender today…

    Today I got a baked blusher! This is one of my favorites items from the advent calender so far!! I love pink blushers and this one is beautiful 😍

    OOTD: A Night Out look πŸΉ

    Last night we had pre drinks at mine & Tim’s and then headed to town to celebrate my brother in law Dan’s 27th Birthday. 

    I really liked this outfit as it was a nice going out outfit but it was actually really comfy too, great for dancing πŸ’ƒ

    I’ve also included the make up look that I went for, I’ll include as much information about the products I used & the clothes as I can!

    We’ll start with the outfit first as I based the make up look on what I was wearing (Once I had decided!!)

    Blouse: Primark Β£8-11 (sorry I can’t remember exactly)

    Jeans, high waisted super skinny: Primark Β£8 reduced from Β£9

    Shoes: Black patent moccasins, Primark Β£8

    Choker:  with rose gold tips, Ebay Β£2.50 for a set of 2

    I love these jeans for this look as they are really skinny and quite a dark denim so they look really smart with this outfit & are perfect for a night out. I don’t usually wear trouser for a night out but it was nice for a change. 

    The choker finished off this outfit really well, my sister got it for me from Ebay and it’s really cool. It comes as a set of two with a plain black velvet one. 

    I really liked how my make up turned out last night, I went a bit extra with the eyes as I think this is what sets a night out look apart from a everyday look.

    Base/Foundation: Body shop bb cream shade 2, Β£12 & Bourjois Radiance reveal healthy mix foundation (1 pump) Β£9.99

    Concealor: Collection lasting perfection in ‘Cool medium’ for the face, Superdrug Β£4.19 & Bourjois Radiance reveal in ‘Ivory’ for under the eyes, Superdrug Β£8.99

    Blush: Revolution ‘Blush goddess’ blush palette, Superdrug Β£6 

    Highlighter: Sleek MakeUp Highlighter palette ‘Precious metals’ SuperdrugΒ£9.99

    Lipstick: Mac Velvet teddy Β£15 

    Eyes: Revolution ‘Fortune favours the brave’ palette, Superdrug Β£9.99

    Charlotte Tilbury ‘Legendary lashes’ mascara Β£25 

    Make up brushes: Real techniques brushes

    I really liked this look and I think my eyeshadow skills are defiantly improving.

    This maroon, brown eye look went really well with my outfit, the revolution palette has some gorgeous colours.

    The lipstick is a browny nude which I usually don’t like at all but I think this one is growing on me, I may need to add this to my Christmas list!! 

    I hope you enjoyed this going out look πŸ’‹

    What are your make up favs for a great night out or an everyday look?

    The top swatch is shade no 9, the middle swatch is shade no 10 & the bottom swatch is Shade no 11.

    • Bourjois radiance reveal concealor in the shade ‘Ivory’ Β£7.99

    I chose this shade because I watched one of Zoella’s blogs where she recommended this for brightening  under the eyes and suggested getting a lighter shade than you would usually use on other areas of your face.

    MAYBELLINE 

    • Maybelline colour tattoo 24 he creme eyeshadow in the shade 65 ‘Pink gold’ Β£4.99

    • Maybelline brow satin in the shade ‘Medium brown’ Β£5.99

    This is the best brow product that I have found so far 👌 The pencil is great for shaping & the sponged end fills in really well.

    MAC

    • MAC matte lipstick in the shades ‘Pink Plaid’ (top) & ‘Please Me’ (bottom) Both retail at Β£15 although I got my Pink Plaid from duty free so it cost me Β£12.50

    Here is a swatch of the colours! The top swatch is Pink plaid & the bottom swatch is Please Me. 

    CHARLOTTE TILBURY

    • Colour chameleon eyeshadow pencil in the shade ‘Champagne diamonds’ Β£19

    I chose this shade as it is designed for people with blue eyes, to make them stand out. This is great for applying all over the lid & crease of the eye.

    Here is a swatch of the colour ‘Champagne diamonds 

    • Charlotte Tilbury legendary lashes Β£25

    This was actually a free sample when I brought the Colour chameleon, I thought if include it though as it’s a nice size bottle. I’ve included the price you would pay for a full size bottle online.

    This is from Zoellas original collection and smells so lovely.  

    • Zoella make up bag Β£8

    This is also from Zoellas original collection & is really cute. It says ‘these are a few of my favourite things’ on the front & different things that Zoella likes on the back it’s a lovely dark peachy coral colour. 

    BARRY M

    • Barry M lip oils ‘Coco Loco’ & ‘ Berry Good’ Β£4.99 each 

    I actually got these after watching one of Zoella’s videos. She was talking about the Claines lip oils that she uses & that these were a good dupe for that brand.

    SLEEK

    • Sleek Make up creme contour kit in shade ‘Light’ Β£10.99

    This kit comes highly recommended (which is why I bought it) and is a really high quality. I havnt really tried contouring much but this set comes with six different shades & a little leaflet to help you apply the appropriate colour the each area of the face.

    COLLECTION 

    • Collection lasting perfection concealor Β£4.19

    This also comes highly recommended and is a very good high street product. It’s affordable and brilliant quality.

    • Urban decay travel brush set Β£11.99

    These are great for carrying around in your make up bag & for avoiding filling it to the brim 👍

    Right, that’s all of it! The total cost of this haul ( not including lashes that were a sample) is *drum roll*  Β£179.58 🙈🙊💷
