As many of you know, I love both Harry Potter and Lush. I heard about the Prince of Darkness face mask before I went to the UK, and immediately saw the connection between HP and Lush. So I made it my job to get my hands on it!
I love candles, Fangirls. I really do. So much so, that we have a cupboard that has candles that have not yet been used yet in it. I love candles so much because they make thins smell nice; I’m not a fan of the house smelling like turkey bacon because it makes me feel sick, but apply pie is a scent I don’t mind masking the bacon with. That being said, I’m a big fan of FromThePage. It’s an etsy store devoted to making cute, nerd themed candles. So when they released a limited run of a Weasley Box, I had to grab it! In the box were 4 mini candles (Skiving Snackboxes, Ton Tongue Toffee, Peruvian Instant Darkness Powder, and Wildfire Wiz-Bangs), and two surprise Weasley themed gifts! Lets get right into it.
As you may imagine, I received many nerdy presents for Christmas this year. I love getting nerdy things, I love that my friends and family understand my nerdyness. And this year was no exception to the fun nerdy gifts I’m used to. Below are some of my favorite ones.
I went into this movie with very specific expectations. I wanted a movie about magical animals, and Newt Scamander finding them in New York City. That isn’t quite what I got, but I still really enjoyed myself.
Money saving powers, activate! The other day I read about something that many folks participate in, called No-Spend November. Much like No-Shave and No-Pants November, this is a way to spend the entire month of November not doing something. This time around, it’s spending money.
Alright friends, family, and Fangirls.I absolutely adore these muffins, and it’s definitely not just because they’re from a Harry Potter cookbook. Not only are they beyond tasty, the recipe makes a ton (Who needs 2 dozen blueberry muffins? Me.) and it’s a simple recipe to follow. So lets get to it!
If you’re like me, Fangirls, you grew up in Hogwarts with Harry, Ron, and Hermione. You attended magical classes, you fought the Dark Lord, and you loved every moment of it (ok, almost every moment…seriously J.K. were the giant spiders necessary?). And when it was all over, you cried as your characters went on with their lives but you wouldn’t see it. You wouldn’t be joining this magical world again to see new creatures and learn new spells. Until now, that is. The first trailer for the new series in the magical world, Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them, was released this past weekend. And again, if you’re like me, you watched with wide eyes and fond memories.
