Blogmas 2018, Day 18: Crackers, Makeup and Hagrid

Blogmas title withthe image of handmade crackers lined up behindOne of our family traditions is to make our own crackers, though they look a bit different as they use party poppers for the bang and are quite a bit bigger than your standard cracker. We often end up rushing to make them a couple of days before Christmas, but this year we actually got them done a week before so I’m feeling very organised. I also watched Bed-knobs and Broomsticks because I realised I don’t think I’ve seen it since I was small and couldn’t really remember what it was about, apart from the magic bed bit. After watching it I realised why we haven’t seen it since! Do you ever see a movie you thought was good and realise that actually it was better not to rewatch it after all?

I also have a bit of a weakness for sheet masks, so when I saw this set of three face masks with two of my favourite villains I had to try them. The three sheet masks are Cruella (coconut), Maleficent (green tea) and Ursula (cucumber). MAD beauty do also do Disney Princess ones but they didn’t sell them in Boots and I think I prefer the villains anyway!
