The Book Blogger Test

Janah nominated me for this book tag! I don’t do book tags often since I don’t read that much, but this one looked like fun, so thanks Janah!!


  • Thank the person who nominated you and add a link to their blog.
  • Answer the ten questions asked on this post.
  • Nominate at least five people to do the tag.
  • Let your nominees know you nominated them.


  • What are your top 3 book pet peeves?

When a book starts off good, but then ends weird. When a book I want to borrow from the library has a really long wait list. When my kindle runs out of battery. That’s all I can think of actually.

  • Describe your favorite reading spot.

Either in bed, or in my armchair. Both places I like to be wrapped up in blankets. As long as I’m comfy and there’s a blanket nearby, it’s a favourite reading spot.


  • Tell us 3 book confessions.

I don’t think I have any book confessions. Oh wait, I used to do that thing where you dog ear books! Until I realized that I should just use a bookmark.

  • When was the last time you cried during reading a book?

I can’t really remember. Not for a long time. I think it might be when I read The Fault in Our Stars back in 2013. That’s the last time I can clearly recall crying while reading.


  • How many books are on your bedside table?

None. Oh, but my kindle is on my bedside table technically actually. So like 20 books I guess.

  • What’s your favorite snack to eat while you’re reading?

I don’t have a particular favourite snack while reading. I just have my regular snacks.

  • Name 3 books you would recommend to anyone.

Out of recent books, I’ll go with: The Subtle Art of Not Giving a Fuck by Mark Manson. Yes Please by Amy Poehler. The Martian by Andy Weir.

  • Show us a picture of your favorite book on your bookshelf.

I literally only have Harry Potter on my shelf. The rest of the books I own are all electronic.

  • Describe how much books mean to you in just 3 words.

Stories. Imagination. Dreams.

  • What is your biggest reading secret?

That I hate long books. If it’s longer than like 600 pages, then I probably won’t want to read it.


I’m going to leave this tag open to anyone who wants to do it!


Beauty Haul & Mini Review

Hi! So, yesterday, I posted my weekend review. I talked about buying some beauty products. I wanted to make a little haul post, cause I don’t do those much, and they look like fun! So, here we go.

Here’s what I got from Mecca Maxima.


Urban Decay Long Lasting Make Up Setting Spray – All Nighter

I have never had makeup setting spray before, but I’ve been curious about it. Emily suggested this one. I’ve heard good things about it, and it was available, so I decided to buy the travel size to give it a shot. I’ve used it a few times, and I have noticed that I don’t need to do touchups at all ever. Even with concealer, so yay!

Bumble and Bumble Thickening Hairspray


I’ve been wanting to get some volumizing or texturizing hair spray, so I had a look around at some online. I really liked this one, and it came highly rated. Also, I love the brand name. I bought the travel size again, so I can see how it goes. It smells really nice which I always love in hair products. My hair always feels nice after I put it through, I can’t really tell if my hair is ‘thicker’ though, but I’ve only been using it for a few days.

Bare Minerals bareSkin Complete Coverage Serum Concealer

I hadn’t heard of this brand till Bella mentioned it in a recent post. I still prefer using my BB cream for now, but since I was out of concealer, I thought I would give this one a go. It was recommended by the girl helping me in the store, and when I tried it, it looked nice. It also wasn’t too pricey which I liked. I may return later to try the original foundation.

Here’s what I got from the Pharmacy.


Maybelline The Nudes Eyeshadow Palette

I’ve been interested in getting some eyeshadow palettes for a while. I saw on Abigail‘s recent post that she had gotten the Blushed Nude palette from this collection. I found it in the store, and saw the other palettes in the collection. I really liked this one! I’ve mentioned before that nude is my preferred go-to for eyeshadow.

Simply Essential Blending Sponge

This is basically a rip off of those beauty blenders. But it does the same thing. I also just wanted one, cause it’s a purple teardrop shaped sponge. It’s fun to use this along with my brushes.

Mita Hair Brushes


I have no idea how these will go, it was a bit of a impulse buy. But I’ve only had one hairbrush since 2011, so I was due an upgrade.

Have you guys tried any of these? What have you bought recently?
