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!

My Everyday Makeup

I  don't know about you, but I love getting a little peek into other people's routines. There are also lots of products that I use on a daily basis, but never make it onto my blog. With both of these in mind, I decided that I'd give you guys a little peek into my everyday makeup. 
Though I didn't think that I wore a lot of makeup, this post made me think otherwise! So grab a cup of tea, because this is quite a long post (at least for me!).
I love using a primer before my base to make sure that my foundation of choice doesn't look cakey and cling to my dry patches. I haven't been using this for long enough to give a full review, but it leaves my skin feeling glowy and moisturized.
NYX HD Photogenic Concealer Wand in Fair
I've been using this concealer for a quite a few months, and I really like it. Thought it isn't incredibly high coverage, it doesn't make my skin look dry and does a fairly good job of coving blemishes.
I love the way that this makes my skin look, it's fairly high coverage for a BB creme. I'm not a fan of matte foundations on my skin, so I'm very happy that this isn't one. It leaves my skin looking more dewy and glowy than other foundations, and I love the way it feels.

YouTube Channels That Inspire Me

Since I spend all of my time on YouTube, I thought that it was time to make a post about some of my favourite people on it. I had such a hard time narrowing this list down. It's still very long, but I did my best. I may have to do a part two, if you guys liked this post.
I'm sure that most of you have probably heard of most of the YouTubers on this list, as they are all very popular. If you haven't heard of them already, though, I hope that you check out their channels! These creator's videos are always guaranteed to put a smile on my face. 
I could never summarize a channel in a few short sentences, but I'll try to give you a feel of what it has to offer. Because I couldn't think of an order to put them in, this list is alphabetical. Their order has nothing to do with who I like better! 

Marzia's videos are always guaranteed to put me in a better mood. They're almost always cheerful and upbeat,  and so pretty to watch. You can tell that she works really hard on her videos, and it makes them so enjoyable to watch!

Danisnotonfire & AmazingPhil
For the sake of not making this post too long, I stuck these two together, but they both have their own channels that are so creative and unique, along with a joint gaming channel. Their videos are always creative, entertaining, engaging, and never boring. Whenever I watch any of their videos, I get an instant mood boost.
