Everything about makeup artist Lisa Eldridge's YouTube channel is perfection. I could watch her videos over and over. Her acne covering makeup tutorial is mind blowing.

Random beverages I've come across in the past few days - Did you know Jolly Rancher soda exists? I don't drink soda so I never have to go down that aisle so this may be common knowledge. // Like I said I don't drink soda but I might be tempted to try Red Bull Cola. // My friend Chantel showed me 20 Alcoholic Beverages Inspired By The Harry Potter Series. The one I want to try the most is the Avada Kedavra shot:

Ingredients:
1 part Goldschläger
1 part Schnapps, sour apple pucker
1 part tequila, gold
1 part whiskey, scotch
1 splash lemon juice
2 dashes Tabasco sauce  

Instructions:
'Mix all ingredients. Serve in a shot glass.'

Speaking of Harry Potter, my favorite internet foodies Working Class Foodies posted their recipe for Butterbeer.

These Harry Potter baby dolls are pretty creepy but I wouldn't mind having the Snape one. It's the closest thing I'll get to having his kid. Did I say that publicly? ::slowly backs away and hides::
