Harry Potter Obsessed & Blog Links

I have been a Harry Potter fan since I can remember.
I was about 7 years old when the franchise started.
It's truly been a magical experience witnessing all the success the Harry Potter series has achieved. I'm going to miss looking forward to the movies every year. :(

But here are some really cute and EXTREMELY FUNNY pictures!
Some were snapshots from movies, others are from photoshoots, and there are also some really cute candid ones.



Are you a Harry Potter fan? How old were you when the first movie came out?

Lush: Candy Fluff Review

Lush is a store that makes fresh handmade cosmetics.
Most of their products are all-natural.
I love walking into a LUSH store. The moment you step foot in their store, the smell is just amazing.


Candy Fluff Dusting Powder

Dusting powder with iridescent and golden sparkles and a tantalising fluffy fragrance. Shake it all over your body for smooth, twinkling, perfumed skin.

I can't really remember how much this was. Probably around $11.


You have 2 choices on the way you want the powder to come out.
I guess it would be the nozzle? but not really. (I hope that made sense.)

The one above is the small holes. You can use it if you only want to use a small amount.


This one is the big hole. I never really used this one. Just because I never needed a big amount of powder. :D


I wanted to show you guys how the powder looked like.
It's color white.
It smells like cotton candy with a dash of vanilla undertone.
It is similar to Snow Fairy so if you've tried that one, you'd definitely like this.

This product is very versatile.
You can apply it to your whole body and use it as dry perfume.
You can also pour it over your pillows and sheets to leave it sweet smelling.
The smell is very long-lasting.


It has glitters when you apply it. I LIKE it because it adds a feminine touch.
And for those of you who have been reading my blog for a while now knows that I LOVE GLITTERS!

I feel very young and fresh everytime I use Candy Fluff.
It has been discontinued though. :(
But I thought that you guys should know about it.
Like I mentioned above, Candy Fluff is similar to Snow Fairy, so you can get that one if you'd like to try this product.


I would give this product an 8/10!
I would definitely repurchase. If only they hadn't discontinued it!

Have you ever tried Candy Fluff? How did you like it? What have you recently bought from LUSH?

The kids are just wild about the Cotton Candy.

Shopping Wishlist: Sephora

Lately, I have been window shopping online. I've visited so many store websites, it's crazy. I think it's fun to see what new things I can spend my "moolah" on when I'm in the ACTUAL store.

I like planning out what to buy, just so I don't go over my budget for the day. Though when I see something I REALLY REALLY like, I can't help but buy it which gets me waaaay over my budget. (and trust me, that happens ALL THE TIME!)


Sephora is one of my favorite makeup stores. You can find almost everything there. From all kinds of skincare products to every color of the rainbow nail polishes.
I get lost in Sephora every time I walk in. I have to allow myself at least an hour in there. ;)

Here are a few of their new arrivals. Thought I'd share it with you guys!


GHD Boho Chic

This set contains:
- ghd Gold Professional 1" Styler
- Protective Plate Guard
- 2 Sectioning Clips
- Get-the-Look Book
- Boho Inspired Heat-resistant Bag

The "Boho" look is the definitely a trend this season. Almost everyone is rocking it. And I, personally, love this look. The beachy waves with braided headbands wrapped around your head. TO DIE FOR. Love it :D


Amika Triple Barrel Pro-curler Set

My curling iron right now is the one with the clip.
I've been wanting to try the clipless wand just because it gives you a more natural looking wave. And a lot of people has been saying that it's waaay easier to use than the clip ones.


Urban Decay 15 Year Anniversary Eye Shadow Collection

LOVE the colors.


Allure Beauty Editor Palette by Sephora

It includes:

- Five fashionable color palettes
- Portable compact.
- The compact is interchangeable, so choose any palette, snap it in, and go!

Each palette contains:
- Six eye shadows
- One blush or bronzer
- One doe foot lipgloss.

Interchangeable Color Palettes:
- All Fun No Sun: coppers, bronzes and browns
- Color Theory: sharp jewel tones like violet and green
- Beauty 101: soft nudes and taupes
- Sparkles Fly: black, bold gold and orange
- Where There's Smoke: smoky charcoal and grays

Isn't this cool?!


Benefit One Prime Day

I have used the "That Gal" primer and it works great.
Now I'd really love to try the "Pore-fessional" and the "Stay don't stray" ones.
It's really good to apply primer before anything else because it helps the makeup last longer. It also makes the makeup more vibrant.


Laura Mercier Moisture Supreme Foundation

I've been hearing really good things about this product.
I want to see for myself. ;]


The Garden of Good & Evil Nail Mini Collection

This set contains the colors:

- Completely Fern-ished (dark green)
- Eve-y On the Eyes (grape)
- Tempted by Teal (metallic teal)
- Frankly I Don't Give A-Dam (gray)


Spark-tacular top coat

Enough said :D


Someday by Justin Bieber

It smells good but nothing special.


DKNY Be Delicious Juice Gift Set

I love the Be Delicious Apple perfume. It smells soooooo good!
So I would love to have this.


And finally, Vera Wang Princess Gift Set!

I have been wanting this ever since I can remember. I just never get the chance to try it. (I always end up spending my money on clothes.)

Have you been to Sephora lately? What's your latest purchase?

People: How much BEAUTY SLEEP do you get?

I LOVE sleep! I mean, who doesn't right? I think my most favorite thing to do in life is to sleep. (Okay, maybe ONE of my most favorite things.)

Being in high school, I have had to endure MANY all-nighters finishing essays and term papers, studying for upcoming exams, and all those crazy high school dilemmas. It's a good thing I don't work. Imagine having to work till late night on top of all of the school work that you get?! That would drive me insane!

Here is an article from People magazine, How much beauty sleep do you get?, where celebrities share approximately how many hours of sleep they are able to get every night


"Science says more rest makes you more attractive."
Every one has to get at least 8 hours of sleep every night!

Heidi Klum - 10 hours


Katie Holmes - 6 hours

Matthew McConaughey - 8 1/2 hours

Drew Barrymore - 3 hours

Jessica Biel - Insomnia (That sucks. I never want to have insomnia.)


Halle Berry - 9 hours

Jon Hamm - 12 hours (Daaaamn, I wish I can sleep 12 hours every night.)

Ellen Degeneres - 8 1/2 hours

Zac Efron - 6 hours

Christina Aguilera - 8 hours

Jessica Alba - 8 hours

Jennifer Lawrence - 8 hours

Hugh Jackman - 7 hours

Jennifer Hudson - 8 hours


Beyonce - Sleeps when she's sleepy. (I like that!)

Ryan Reynolds - indefinite (He adds up how many times he blinks in one day?! That's crazy. I guess he means that he doesn't really get that much sleep.)

Ginnifer Goodwin - 8 hours

Amanda Seyfried - 10 hours

Jada Pinkett Smith - 6 hours

Eva Longoria - 8 hours

Patrick Dempsey - 6 hours

I try to get at least 5-6 hours of sleep every night when school is in session. But I try to make up for it during the summer. Although I LOVE to stay up really late. Hey, it's summer! :D

How many hours of sleep do you get?!

Sleep is the best meditation.
