Meeting Zoella & Sprinkle of Glitter!

Recently my friend Abi (@abiyoutube on youtube & twitter) won a competition to visit the Harry Potter studios and meet Zoella and Sprinkle of Glitter. She invited me to go along with her and I honestly had an amazing time. 

Truth being is that I have seen the first 3 Harry Potter films and never read the books.. but walking around the studio tour where they were filmed was one of the best experiences of my life. We got around 2 hours to look around the sets and look at the props before going to meet Louise and Zoe. We didn't get much time to chat to them but they were so lovely. We took some selfies and then left to get food. 

At the studio, they served all competition winners dinner and drinks before going into a huge cinema room to watch Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows part 2. They gave us ice cream, popcorn and sweets to watch the movie with. After the film finished, it was about 10pm and the girls thanked us for coming and went on their way. We all left with the biggest smiles on our faces after getting the privilege to meet 2 of the best youtubers on the Internet!

I'm so grateful and will definitely not forget my day to the Harry Potter Studios!

Garnier Micellar Cleansing Water | Review


I am constantly battling between the lack of effort to remove my makeup properly using products that are kind to my skin and the roughness of makeup wipes. 

I don't necessarily have sensitive skin but when it comes to makeup wipes, they always seem to leave my skin feeling tight, sore and irritated no matter what brand I use. Although they are convenient and quick, I'm starting to see that they have no benefits to my skin whatsoever! 

Everyone raved about the Bioderma Micellar water for such a long time however, Garnier soon brought this little saviour out with a price tag at a fraction of the cost. I have had this bottle for months and it just seems to last for ever (no complaints here!) 

Its gentle on the skin due to natural ingredients, non perfumed and works super fast. Its great for those nights when you are collapse on your bed before taking your makeup off and can't  bear the idea of sleeping with mascara on your lashes and foundation clogging your pores. Just grab a cotton pad, poor some of the product on and sweep it over your face.. no vigorous rubbish required. The fact it doesn't need rinsing after is also a huge bonus!

It leaves my skin feeling fresh and clean before bed and I don't have to worry about leaving traces of dirt and makeup behind because this stuff really picks it all up!
