Book Review - Harry Potter & The Cursed Child

Good morning loves!

I love reading and always have and I don't share that with many people. I've decided to incorporate book reviews into my blog because  it's something I've always loved and I don't have enough people in my personal life to share it with. 

I will start off by saying I think a lot of die hard HP fans went into this thinking it was going to be like the original series which I also think is where the negative reviews of this are stemming. This is a play and is formatted to be read as such.

The story itself was excellent, I felt like I was pulled back into that old magical world with Harry, Ron, Hermione & Draco. It was like being with old friends again and seeing what had changed since their last year at Hogwarts. I like many others though do not like the play format, I truly wish this had been a full size book like the original series as I think this story could have gone on so much further. 
I don't want to give too much away but of course it follows the story of one of Harry's children. Which one, you ask? Well you'll have to read it to find out.

Any other HP Fans, what did you think of this?

a trip to british columbia

Hello everyone.

Well, I'm back at work after a wonderful albeit short weekend away. 
The company my boyfriend works for has an annual golf tournament in Quesnel, BC and this year they offered to reimburse the expenses for the trip so of course we jumped at the opportunity.

The weather wasn't near as nice as we hoped. Originally we had booked a tenting site but the lady at the resort was lovely enough to upgrade us to a cabin for two nights for the price of one. They were these tiny little triangular shaped cabins with lofts in the top. I was so excited about the loft bed! (see photo above) They were just large enough for sleeping which was really all we needed them for.
It's a ten hour drive there so our legs were pretty sore by the time we finally got to settle in.
For the couple of hours we had the first night we sat ad relaxed by the fire with a little wobbly pops.

Saturday morning we were up bright and early! 
I don't golf whatsoever, so I dropped him off and headed back to the cabin which I was mostly stuck in as it was cold and rainy most of the day. By the time the sun popped out I headed back for the dinner which was wonderful. The whole weekend was very relaxing. Whatever time we had where the rain settled for a bit we had a walk around the park and the town.The town is very industrial so there wasn't much but being in British Columbia the areas around it are gorgeous. Then Sunday came and we had to rise early to start our long commute back home.

Despite not wanting to leave it's nice to come home to your own bed and my dog, who I thought was going to have a panic attack from not seeing me for two days. She knocked me off my feet with her love!

What did you get up to this weekend?

Weekend in the Mountains



Hello loves.

Well this past weekend was a busy one for me. I had my moms, step dads and best friends birthday's all in two days! 
So my best friend and I planned a surprise lake day for her sister which if I'm honest did not turn out at all as planned....
First of all the weather was not our friend it ended up being cold and windy as hell so the beautiful day we had planned ended up being us shivering in the water for a good half hour. We were proud we even made it that far. They invited another friend whom I hadn't seen in a good two years who happened to me one of my earliest elementary school friends so it was great to reminisce with everyone about out childhood. These are some of my closest friends as you can see from the above photos and although we hardly see each other anymore it's as if nothings changed and I will love them forever.
 Sunday, I spent the morning helping my man landscape (I hated every second of it, there is no green thumb in this body). Afterwards we headed to my mom's for dinner to celebrate their birthdays. She of course made a lovely dinner and desert as she always does for any family occasion. The next birthday I have to celebrate this month is mine and I'm turning 25 this year, I feel old you guys, real old.

What did you get up to on the weekend?

Top Three - Summer Nail Shades

Good morning loves!

Summer's here and the bright colors are out!
I wanted to share my top three favorite summer polish shades with you. I love white nails year round. They're classy, simple and work with everything.

Essie's Blanc is my current one but I'll be keeping my eyes peeled for a different brand as I find Essie far too overpriced. You can read my full thoughts here.

Sephora's Polish in "Keep Me Posted." I thought I had a review of this up but I guess I don't, maybe I'll put one up! This shade reminds me of mermaids and the ocean. It's a stunning teal and I can't get enough of it.

Elf's Polish in I believe it's called Mango Madness. This is such a bright fun coral color. It screams summer time to me. I find it looks better on darker skin tones but that won't keep me from wearing it.

What are your favorite summer shades?
