Today’s blog is on upcycling but still keeping a look that matches the times . This cabinet I kept the original colour however added a different colour too the draw and a rope handle .
It’s a cheap and easy thing to upcycle . What was your quickest and easiest upcycle ? Let me know below x see you on Wednesday for a blog on learning German x lots of love ,
Todays review is on my mac highlighter in the shade double gleam. Mac is obviously a popular brand that does sadly test on animals ( something I do not like) However I know their products look good and last for ages.
The packaging is sleek and looks expensive. Its easy to fit in your bag and even has mac inprinted in the makeup. The make up itself is one in a million. I have never ever ever found a highlighter that is close too it!
You can use it for highlighting your cheeks , lips and I often use a bit on my eye lids. It is relatively expensive however it will last long and looks fab in my eyes. What is your fav highlighter? let me know xox soapso xx
Who had snow today as well?
Hey soapies ,
So today my order came from new look ( ordered two days ago ) it was a signed for delivery but I only paid £3 so I was pretty impressed especially as I didn’t want my beautiful jeans lost .. Imagine that ? Actually don’t it’s heartbreaking not just too me but my bank account . So today I’m going too talk through my top 5 jeans that I bought from new looks website .
I am a uk size 10 in jeans tops is a different subject recently I fitted in size 10 kids .. yes that’s age 10!! I like new look jeans because I feel their jeans last and are super comfortable. I mean my mum bought me my skinny’s three years ago and they still haven’t lost their shape and my work black trousers never go out of shape ( all 6 of them are pretty good … there was a deal .. please don’t judge ! ) .
So anyway ( back too the topic Soap please ) my top jeans for me was the Jenna skinny ankle grazer . It has embroiled flowers on it and it’s super warm and comfortable . They are kinda perfect for those days you wanna grab your vans and just go too the beach ( if you didn’t know I’m also a vans fan ! ) these jeans fit perfect and were £30 but honestly it is £30 not waisted ! I got my student discount so all the jeans went down from £101 too £81 and that works out £16 a pair .
The second fav for me is the Hallie high waisted super skinny jeans . Now I love the feel of these jeans they are cosy and they feel like proper jeans not the normal trashy stuff you buy in cheap places . Unfortunately I made a small error by ordering tall when I’m a 5 ft 2 kinda girl ( yes I got basket happy and ended up not looking up the info .. I always go by the looks of the product AND forget too check the details . Anyone else suffer from this ?) . So anyway they are perfect for a tall girl otherwise you ended up with these like lumps of jeans at the bottom of your leg . I’m keeping mine for comfort reasons . They would of cost £22.99 and In terms of material and the way they fit they are sooooo worth it !
Next up is the Jenna skinny in black . Now these are ankle grazer style and have the cut bottoms which I kinda thought from the online pic but it was hard too gather . I love these ones they are just perfectomoi ( no idea if that’s a word .. do apologise if it’s a bad one too! ) . Now these are for more summer I’d suggest as the materials lighter and they feel all together more lighter .. put it this way if you wore these in Iceland you would have hypothermia in 5 seconds . They would of been £15.99 and I can see why there is less detailing in them and they are much cheaper fabric but on the hand better than rival companies like Matalan’s materials for similar products .
Next up is the super skinny India in blue jeans . They are from new look petite and they do fit perfectly for a small girl . I initially picked them up and said outload no they are not gonna fit . The reason I thought that is because the hips look like a size 4 so do not go into melt down like I did as you try them on you find they fit you and kinda stretch to your shape . The material is nice and they fit nice on the bum so pretty good pair I’d say for £22.99
Last but not least is the Hallie highwaisted super skinny in black now these jeans are a nice material and are nice once you have done the dance too get them on. The bottoms for me are a nightmare too get your feet through and the top button digs in however they have got a wow factor once you are wearing them . Just be prepared for the two minute dance too get them on . These were £19.99 .
So overall I am still a major new look jeans fan and would highly recommend them . Have a look online and try something new . You can have collection from a local store or collection from a new look store or delivery too your house . Make a new you and grab some bargains . Tell me your jeans and new look experiences below ❤️lots of love Soap xoxox 😘
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
Hey soapies ,
If you know me well you will know I am a huge fan of Tanya burr . She is an inspiration and also makes some amazing cosmetics !
My choice on this sleepy Sunday was to talk about the Tanya burr cosmetics beautifully designed collection . As you may be aware this was available at Christmas and was gifted to me !
The packaging looks lush ! It is very much “Tanya” if you know of Tanya burr . The box is a perfect size and has lots of sparkly bits on it . As you open the box you can marvel over the array of colours in the box .
The products themselves are eye shadows , highlight , bronzer and liquid highlighter . With a little tips and how to section on the back within no time you will know how to use these beautiful beauty products correctly .
An added bonus to this is a little mirror inside . Here’s a little soap tip – use the silk pyjamas eye shadow as a base and then put over it the last in the palette colour from the L’Oréal rose palette ( I did a review on that a while back !!!) it will look stunning .
What do you think of this box ? Of Tanya burr and her cosmetics …. let me know ! Ps thank you for reading see you tomorrow lots of love soap ⭐️ Xoxox
