My Favourite...Zoella Videos

Embarrassingly, I only really 'discovered' Zoella this year!! But I am now subscribed to both her channels and watch her videos religiously! I thought I'd share with you my favourite videos she's done!
I actually really loved this video, I think her hair and make up looks great and I have tried it out too!
Thought it was hilarious when she started copying the person doing yoga haha!
I love seeing what homeware she has!
It's so sweet when she introduces her Guinea Pigs!
I like her hauls especially her Primark ones as it proves you don't need to shop anywhere too fancy to get great clothes and look good in them too!

What are your favourite Zoella videos?

Harry Potter TAG

Image source
Genevieve created this and I thought I'd give it a go!

  1. First experiences of Harry Potter? Probably when the first two films used to be on TV
  2. Which film have you watched the most? Probably The Chamber Of Secrets as they ALWAYS seem to show that one on ITV!
  3. What was your favourite Harry Potter film? Probably the fifth one, the Order of the Phoenix because it's where everything seems to get quite a bit darker
  4. Favourite moment out of all Harry Potter films? Probably in the last film where you really see what Professor Snape is really like: a lovely character!
  5. If you could be any character from Harry Potter who would you be and why? Hmm Luna Lovegood I thing as she always seems dreamy, happy and quirky and I thought she was very pretty too!
  6. If you could learn one thing at Hogwarts what would it be? Either how to be invisible or how to travel in time...probably the last one!
  7. Favourite teacher at hogwarts? Professor McGonagall, she was like a Mother to Harry and all the students really and I love Maggie Smith!
I tag anyone reading this!

How To: Add Related Pages

Okay, so some of you may have noticed that my blog has recently undergone some changes one of which is that under each post there is now a 'You may also like' section. The most popular related pages widget is 'LinkWithin,' however after doing a bit of research I found out that it actually redirects traffic from your blog through their website and then links it back to your blog meaning that all the traffic you get they get too.

Instead of using LinkWithin I've used nRelate which I like as you can format how you'd like the pages to show up and it doesn't steal your 'internal link juice' like LinkWithin!
Here's how I did it!
Go onto their website which I'll link HERE, and click on 'LOG IN' if you have an account, I assume you already have your widget but if not then click Register and complete the details needed
You'll then come to this page where you'll need to click the blog type which is relevant to you, and then type in your websites URL
After that, decide where you want the related pages to be on your blog and you'll be directed to your blog so that you can add the widget
After this, you will be presented with your layout page, it doesn't really matter where it is on the page, but make sure you SAVE it!! After this go back to the page before it redirected you where it asked you where on your blog you'd like the widget, and underneath it has a little bit about editing the widget, click that and this page will come up:
You can then go ahead editing and formatting the widget so it's personal to you and your blog, you can even change how the photos are presented too!
Don't forget to click update and then you will have yourself some related pages!

Hope this helped some people, I know a lot of people already have this widget but as a fairly new blogger it was still on my to do list!
