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 ,

The skyrim candle 

Hey soapies ,

I am a candle addict ! Yep I think anyone who has seen my home kinda has gathered that . 

The other day my partner came home from work and said “look what I got “ I was praying inside it wasn’t either some weird item of food or more likely a super expensive game that really isn’t worth the £55 they charge . Too my shock it was a candle but not just any candle a skyrim candle that cost £8?! 

Now I thought £8 ! £8 for that? But surprisingly it smells quite nice and lasts upto 30 hours . So for anyone doubting those gaming candles at Game , go buy one ! They are brilliant . 

Lots of love ,

I am not really british?!

Hello soapies,

so as I told you yesterday I did the ancestry DNA test. I knew I was going too be British I mean I have british family and somewhere my swiss and German side would come up but I did not realise how much I would be.

I am 73 percent western European- mainly Luxemburg, France, Germany and Switzerland and only 16 percent united kingdom!!!!- I was super shocked at that. I am also many small amounts of other countries too.

I always felt a connection with Switzerland something I can not really say the feelings. It feels almost like you belong there. When I last went too Switzerland people thought I was Swiss and tried too speak too me in German.

The DNA test if you opt for it will tell you who your related too and whether there’s any matches on our trees. I had 40 4th-6th cousins!! I couldn’t believe it and even though right now I can not tell how were related once I have put the full family tree on ancestry I will know.

I would like too tell you that honestly it makes you feel more like you know yourself and you can find people who are all around the world and are actually related too you. If your sceptical I would honestly tell you too just go for it. who knows what you will discover.

lots of love, soap xox

Biore deep pore cleanser review 

Hey soapies , Here’s my little review today on the biore deep pore cleanser.
1. Does it smell? – yes , it smells sweet- very hard too explain the smell .

2. Is it long lasting ? – in terms of the bottle size it’s lasted me a year and really helps my skin 

3. Is it cheap / on offer?- sadly it is normally a set £4 but it does help with your skin especially as a young adult and you will feel it working and that’s something you don’t always find in products these days .

4. Do I know anyone who recommends it ?- me haha ! Apart from me no one else I know uses it.

5. Have I used it before ? – I have used biore tabs that rip the blackheads out but I wasn’t too impressed with it but I still gave this ago and I honestly love this product . 

6. How much is in the bottle ?- the bottle which has a squeezy pump had 200ml in it which doesn’t sound much but you literally need this smallest amount and it will cover your face.

7.How long does it last once opened?- 12 months

8.What’s the packaging like ?- it’s plain but bold enough – nothing fancy 

9. Is it easy to use ? – very easy , just put it on your face and then rub it in before washing off and I do that twice a day . Makes me also stay awake lol ! 

10. Is it a 10/10 and would I recommend- yes definitely 10/10 and I would definitely tell you too buy it !! Let me know if you have used it or a product similar and let me know if you love or loath this product – love soap xx
