The Harry Potter Tag

So I wasn't actually tagged in this and I haven't read it on anyone else's blog recently either, but I can remember reading this before I started blogging and being desperate to do it! So here is my Harry Potter tag!
What is your favourite book?
The Order of the Pheonix. I'm not sure if it was the rebellion, the comedy of Harry and Ron discovering girls or because Fred and George were so heavily featured but I absolutely loved this book! I can remember so clearly reading it in the day it came out when I was 13 and just getting completely lost in the story.
What is your favourite movie?
I'm definitely part of the 'books over the movies' team, but I'd have to say the Goblet of Fire. There were just so many cinematic moments which were beautiful to watch, such as Hermione at the Youle Ball and the entire underwater part of the second task! It also didn't stray too far from the books, well compared to the Deathly Hallows films it didn't!

Daisy Dream and a Benefit Haul

Lets face it, very few people have the willpower necessary to spend 20 minutes trying the samples at the benefit counter and not buy anything. And given my inability to ever leave a Boots store without buying at least one piece of probably not needed make up I evidently do not have the willpower needed! But despite once again spending too much money I'm actually seriously impressed by the Benefit items I bought so thought I'd do a few mini reviews on them as well as dropping in just how much I'm adoring the new perfume I also bought. If there was ever a time for the "I've bought too much" hiding monkey emoticon this would be it!
Dream by Marc Jacobs (X). I'll admit the prettiness of the bottle probably did influence this purchase, look how gorgeous the gold and white flowers are! But I also really love the scent, which is a beautiful mix of jasmine, grapefruit, coconut water, white woods and blue wisteria among other gorgeous ingredients. The result is a floral but fruity scent which instantly feels summery, light and subtle, and for me is the perfect mix.

Current Beauty Favourites

Here are 8 somewhat recent purchases that I am loving at the moment! 
The Body Shop blush and highlighter. This is the first blusher I've bought in a really long time as I didn't used to wear blusher on a daily basis. However this gorgeous pink Body Shop one has managed to rapidly convert me to the point of wearing it everyday! The addition of a highlighter makes such a good mix and the colour is so pretty and subtle. 
Topshop Necklace. I'm loving gold jewellery at the moment and this necklace is so bold and detailed, but also versatile enough to be added to most outfits.
