Today in the advent calendars I got a miniature of one of the full sized Funko Pops I own. Maybe it’s just me but I always like mini things and seeing a mini version of a figure I like is always interesting to compare them. The Holland and Barrett beauty advent calendar has a moisturiser from a brand I’ve heard of and been interested in but never actually bought anything from. I’ve been leaving my moisturiser to run out as I always get so much skin care in these things and today it’s moisturiser day, just in time as well.

The house smells of Christmas cooking today. I love making Christmas food and yesterday I made some mincemeat slices, like mince pies but with oats and wholemeal flour rather than standard pastry, and they are so nice but slightly healthier (only slightly). Today we may have ended up going shopping and buying more Christmas cakes. We’ve never really got them before but we got some mini Stollen and Lebkuchen, I think the lebkuchen are some of my favourite Christmas sweet foods. I’m the only one in the family who likes them so we don’t normally get them, but it was a small pack at a good price and they’re being kept till Christmas so I’ll try and be good and not sneak any before then! Do you guys have any favourite Christmas foods?

Review: Funko Pop Dumbledore Figure

There are two versions of Dumbledore available, at least that I have found on Amazon, but this is the one that was released in the original wave of Funko Pop figures. I wanted some of these since I first saw they were releasing them and then this year I decided to get two of them, I reviewed the Snape one earlier this year.

These Funko Pop figures are vinyl figures based on a large range of different franchises, most of them are the same size as this figure but there are some that are larger, for example Hagrid in the Harry Potter series, and some are smaller or there are rides and bobbleheads in some ranges. This Dumbledore figure does seem to vary in price but it’s normally between £8 – £12, when I got them they were around £9, at the moment it’s £8.68 on Amazon but that might change by tomorrow, the prices seem to go up and down a lot.
