How good does it feel when your make up is all organised and nicely presented? A-MAZ-ING, am I right? How do you organise your make up? Leave me a comment below and let me know. I dream of having a dressing table in my future house…please-please-please! I can’t right now because I am flittering between houses because I am living the student life right now.
So, for now I organise my make up like this. (well some of my make up, like my lipsticks and eyeshadow- the others are in my MASSIVE make-up bag.
I love this little storage thing, isn’t it preeeetttyyyy.
So, I thought I would update you guys on what I have read in 2017 so far. I haven’t read as much as I wanted so far because I have been busy working on my dissertation.
I am doing my dissertation on the representation of trauma within Gillian Flynn’s novels, so I have been reading a lot about crime fiction. Oh yeah…that means I get to write 10,000 words on my love for Gillian Flynn and look at her novels: Sharp Objects, Dark Places and Gone Girl.

“Or yet in wise old Ravenclaw,If you’ve a ready mind,
Where those of wit and learning,

With these traits in mind, I thought I would recommend some books for fellow Ravenclaws.
