Mischief Managed

Happy OMG-it's-the-final-Harry-Potter-film-released-in-Australia-today day!  Although I'm a rather recent Harry Potter fan, I'm still so excited to see the movie with my friends!!  So I figured I'd make a hair thing and a scarf to go with it.  (Plus do my nails, but I'll get to that in a few days lol)

I used my trusty (yet very much under-appreciated) hot glue gun, Gryffindor themed ribbons, a hair comb and, of course, a giant cup of instant coffee.

I'm actually really excited as to how it turned out, it looks pretty much exactly how I had planned it!  It wasn't that hard either, a little bit of hot glue and half an hour was all it took.

No in-hair shots of the bow, I'm yet to try that out!  Tomorrow I'll be making a matching Gryffindor scarf, and at some point in time I'll be baking snacks - does anyone know any good Harry Potter - related recipes?  I'm thinking about tackling the cauldron cupcakes, yum.

Until next time,

23 before 23: 6 month update!

Back in August I posted about 23 things that I wanted to achieve before I hit 23 next year (read about it here). Since we're at the 6 month mark, I thought an update was in store!

Writing this post and reading over my list I'm realising how much I've got to achieve - school holidays now, time to get busy! So far I've achieved...

12. Spend a day at the beach
Check! Was a gorgeous day and both myself and my boyfriend came back without being completely roasted. Considering how pale we both are, that was a surprise.

19. Find a signature makeup look
It only occurred to me the other day that I'd done this - I <3 my winged liner and bright lip.

20. Read 2 "classic" novels
Done and done!
Clearly I've gotten lazy with my book reviewing, haha. I've since read The Great Gatsby, Little Women and am currently marathoning my way through Anna Karenina.

I've noticed it just seems like I'm not a Jane Austen fan but have enjoyed all of the others that I've re…
