Wild Wednesday- learning German With babbel

Hallo soapies! (bit of german there),

I have decided too learn german and it is so simple with babbel. I have heard of this site for a long time and thought nooooo I do not want to spend that much money however I have discovered they are doing an offer for 6 months free so it will be £30 for a year!

So far it is going quite well they teach you how too speak the language and how too write it. You can also go back through each lesson and you can do it at your own pace. I think it is so easy too learn and I honestly am learning something so fast. They also have an app. What languages did you learn and how did you learn?

lots of love,

My super easy and cheap kitchen accessories

Hey Soapies ,

A little bit boring but here’s my blog today on my kitchen and the items I have . So I have a knife block which I always wanted one but they are normally so expensive I just stuck too random colourful knives in one of my draws which was like a finger trap every time I went in there . This block was from Asda and only cost £4 after Christmas ! So it was a bargain !

The next up is my stag container without the stag lid which contains straws and was £3 I believe in matalan . Followed by my super cheap containers from wilkos which can be used for anything and a brilliant for flour etc but cost from £3 so not bad and they look cute and they have a blackboard top … what more do you want ?

The sweet jars were from my mum but they can from Sainsburys and the spice rack was £9.99 in bandm and is practically all the spices and herbs you need ! What’s your bargain kitchen accessories and tell me what you want me too blog about x love Soap xx

Sleepy Sunday – trying new cheap make up

Hey soapies ,

So I went into home bargains which is amazing ! If you have not been in it it’s worth a look ( don’t grab a basket you will leave with a bag full ! ) . They also have an online website which does not have everything but some of their products on there .

Now I did a bit of a bad thing for me I bought some cheap 99p make up and the reason why it’s bad is because those of you who remember know the last time I used cheap 99p make up ( mascara – w7) it caused me too become allergic too mascara haha ! But I did try again this time with lipstick and foundation.

Now I used the Olivia hale make up and I bought a lipstick which I thought would wow . A rich purple ! ( lush colour !) . The packaging is not much different too maybeline however the product you can tell is cheap. The lipstick is hard too apply as the top is tiny . Probably best too use a lip brush but it’s still annoying and the product easily smudges … huge problem when all you had was a drink but it looks like you’ve kissed about 20 times ! Soo sadly what I thought would be my next make up sensation isn’t .

But …

I bought the Olivia Hale foundation and oh too the m g it’s great . It’s just like my mac make up , very similar colour and texture and is great for all over coverage . The top is in fact easier than most foundations as it’s a tube top . I really recommend this foundation and is the best cheap foundation . It out does my Poundland foundation .

What’s your cheap products your amazed with ? Let me know xo love Soap x

Making enhiliadas with the Old El Paso kit 

Hey soapies ,

So tonight’s meal was enchiladas . I used a kit which cost £1.50 on offer in co op . It has 15 wraps in it so you can use any spares for other wraps/ meals so it’s a bargain really . I used a tiny bit of vegetable oil in a pan and pan fried some chicken and pork which I got reduced for £1 for both in Asda !! I used a pepper and some sweet corn which cost pence as it was in a multi packet and fried it all till done . 

Then I put the wraps in the microwave for 50 seconds . I have baked them before but I find they crumble soooo I was not taking that chance . 

I put foil around each enchilada wrap and placed all the pan fried bits in the enchilada . 

I don’t like spicy food at all … like for me there’s nothing worse than my eyes crying over a bit of spice . So I had French’s Kansas City classic bbq which is my fav bbq as it has a bit of a kick .

For George I gave him the enchilada mix which was pretty easy too make but I would say wasn’t mild like the box says more hot than mild . 

This was a super easy meal and it didn’t cost much in total probably £2.50 but it filled us up and tasted great . For me it was a 10/10 !! 

Lots of love ,

Sleepy Sunday : is Poundland make up worth that pound ? 

Hey soapies ,

I’m back with a new product . I bought a wide variety of foundations from Poundland . This is my personal view so no hate … we all have our opinions! 

The make up gallery make up has stared at me so many times and said “buy me !” But I was resistant until a few days ago when I purchased foundations from Poundland .

Okay yes it was a pound and I’m not looking for an amazing foundation that would cost double that dirt cheap but I really wanted to see what makes this a little ( a lot !!!!) cheaper than my Mac and Rimmel foundations .

1. The bottle size is smaller than most foundations

2. No fancy packaging 

3. No fancy name 

4. The colours don’t Range that much 

5. The thickness 

6. How long it lasts

However the shade ivory 1 looks amazing on me and I honestly think I may use this as a base later to my Mac ! 

It makes me glow and I really think you should take a look in Poundland . What’s your thoughts ? Let me know lots of love soap xoxo ps what you doing this Sunday? 

Saturday – best razors for may ! 

Hey soapies ,

You may know I get each month the pink parcel box which is amazing ! You should soo check them out !! This month I had a razor in it .. it’s the bic miss soleil razor and I thought I’d give it a try and omg ! My legs are super smooth ! Highly recommended it. 

If you buy from Morrisons they are only £2 for a pack of 4 and are truly worth every penny . What do you think of these ? Lots of love soap xx

Fab Fridays  – wardrobe ideas ☺️

Hey soapies ,

You may be a little bit of a clothe a holic or just like too have a nice wardrobe then you have met your blog to read .

Here’s my top guide on getting a good wardrobe and the right one for you .

1. Space – always think about the space you need and the space you have . Get a wardrobe that is adaptable – what I mean by that is one you can take to new homes or place in new places easily . 

2.matching – will your wardrobe match your other furniture and will it simply suit the room .

3. What do you want ?- do you want a mirror ? Enough space for long dresses or more space for underwear ? Decide what you want .

4. Price – sometimes the price can shock you but you have too think can you really afford that and do you need that extra bit or it in that colour or next day delivery ? 

My wardrobe was £200 from a online store on eBay from London who delivered and built the wardrobe within half an hour in my home . The delivery was £30 but it was worth it . 

This is my wardrobe . It’s white and has a old fashioned look too it ! It has a mirror which is lovely too have and it has lots of room . The colour makes the room look brighter and bigger too . Hope this helps you and also helps you decide furniture in general . Speak to you soon love soap Xoxox
