Back to Hogwarts Tag (+ tags)

Heather at Just Geeking By recently tagged me in this amazing Harry Potter tag that was originally created by Michelle at A Geek Girl’s Guide. Thanks so much Heather! You can check out her answers and tags here! Let’s get to the questions, shall we?



Have to go shopping in Diagon Alley! What store do you go to first? Ollivanders would absolutely be my first stop! On our honeymoon, Alec and I went straight to Ollivanders (after getting breakfast, of course) to get our interactive wands! We picked out our own, but it would be amazing to see them picked out for us like in the movies.

You’re on the train! What are you getting from the trolley? Most definitely a Chocolate Frog! We brought a couple back from Harry Potter World, and they were really good! also, can I just say the train ride at Harry Potter World was so cool? Loved it!

It’s time for the welcome feast! Which house table are you at? I’m a Ravenclaw, so I’m definitely going to be sitting with my housemates! Hopefully there’s a few INFJ‘s who are down to eat together.

You get an elective this year! What will it be? It’s gotta be Care of Magical Creatures. Hagrid would easily be one of my favorite teachers, and I adore animals. Would I be any good at it? Maybe the textbook part. I can see myself struggling with the hands on aspect though, especially if there’s any creepy crawlies that need care.

You’ve got a break between classes! What will you be doing? Cracking open a well worn copy of my favorite book… or if electronics are allowed, checking on my Animal Crossing town! Electronics like consoles, computers, and cellphones would definitely make the world of Harry Potter really interesting.

You get to go to Hogsmeade this year! Where do you go first? Madam Puddifoot’s Tea Shop with Alec. I love small, romantic locations, and being there with Alec would be the icing on the cake… I honestly can’t wait for us to go back to Ireland because everything there felt incredibly cozy and romantic.

You’re meeting up with friends to hang out! Where in the castle are you all going to chill? Most likely the girls’ dorms in Ravenclaw! The artwork of the dorm rooms is positively dreamy. What a cool place to hang out and talk! And, you know, study.

The end of year exams are coming up. What test will you do the best at? Charms and History of Magic would definitely be my strong suits! I retain information easily so those classes I would most likely breeze through. Anything hands-on, like flying, I’d be barely passable at!

My Nominations:

Jaycee @ Thinking Moon

Meagan @ Quibbles & Scribbles

Princess Deia

Amanda @ Imaginating Life

Special thank you to Suzi at My Colourful Life! She nominated me last week for the Sunshine Blogger Award. Suzi is a fantastic writer for her lifestyle blog that has a little bit of everything for everyone. You should head over and check her out! Thanks again for the nomination Suzi! On to the questions…


The Rules:

  • Thank the blogger who nominated you and link back to their blog.
  • Answer the 11 questions the blogger asked you.
  • Nominate 11 new blogs to receive the award and write them 11 new questions.
  • List the rules and display the Sunshine Blogger Award logo in your post and/or on your blog.


Where is the best place you have visited? Hands down, it has to be Ireland. It was my first time on an airplane and my first time outside of the US. It was two beautiful weeks of firsts for me while I was visiting my then long distance boyfriend. We stayed in a cute little hotel in Dublin for part of my visit and toured Dublin. His uncle took us all over in his car to sight see and take photos in the republic of Ireland. I got engaged to my now wonderful husband at A. CASTLE. Talk about a dream proposal. Maybe I’m still looking at my trip with nostalgia glasses but the country truly is beautiful, and I can’t wait to go back in August 2020.

If you could re-live any age, what age would you pick and why? That’s a good question, but I’m afraid I don’t have a good answer. I love my life right now. A lot of my past was painful and aren’t full of moments I necessarily want to relive. I think in 10 years, this will be the time in my life that I want to relive.

What was your favourite subject in school? English!  I really enjoyed writing and researching for book reports. I know it’s not something everyone enjoy, but I really liked being able to be creative and home my skills as a writer.

If you had to choose one outfit to wear for the rest of your life what would it be? High-waisted black skinny jeans, anime tee, and converse.

What is the best piece of advice you could give to younger you? The best thing I could tell my younger self would be “you are worth so much more.” There were more time than I can count that I forgot my worth, and I will never forget my worth now.

What is your favourite colour? Black!

What pets have you had? I had a few pets when I was little, but now I have Padme, the best long haired chihuahua ever. She has quite the attitude and personality. I wouldn’t trade her for anything; she’s my best friend.

How would you spend a perfect summer day? The perfect summer day would be about 80 degrees with a light breeze. Alec and I would take Padme on a lake picnic that included a bit of a walk or hike to a beautiful, secluded location with the perfect spot to dip in for a swim. After swimming and playing, we’d spread out our towels and have cold lemonade, chicken salad sandwiches and chips for lunch and ice-cream for dessert.

What is your favourite film? I have so many! My favorite film when I was little was Balto. Right now, I like to re-watch Zootopia and Sing! to put myself in a happy mood.

Do you have a skincare routine?  What are your favourite products? Yes! I like to use the Neutrogena makeup remover wipes to remove all of my makeup. Next, I clean my face with a gentle facial cleanser from Cerave. Then, I use Thayers alcohol-free toner (fave!) all over my face and neck. Finally, before I apply my Cerave moisturizer, I use an off brand spot treatment on any pimples that might have popped up.

Would you take part in my “Saturday Shout Out“? (Sorry, shameless self-promotion there) Sure!

My Questions:

  • What song do you think makes people remember you?
  • What character would you choose to be your best friend?
