Autumn Hauls – Superdrug Haul – September 18 mini haul on a tight budget

When you’re on a tight budget of £25 which means you have to prioritise which certain things you really need at the time. There’s me when I need a lot of things to get but on a really tight budget because the wage you have isn’t enough to cover you for a month nor the things you need. If you’re going back to uni (university) soon or right now this might help you out; if you’re not but here to find out what I got, along with how I budget for it that’s also great too. 

Being a typical person as it was raining at the time I went to go and get these items I was pretty much not in the mood of walking 45 minutes in the rain. I can tell you that now because my hair was already wavy and frizzy before I left.  

I wanted to try ultra face base primer by Revolution because E.L.F primers are good but I just find that they run out quite quickly and enough product inside. I do have to say from just walking around my house to the car and from the car to somewhere when it’s been raining my make up hasn’t run off my face nor when I’ve had been getting really hot and sweaty or my make up has literally coming off. This product has been really great so far. I’ve only used it once but I personally feel like it’s good thing to have. Not saying E.L.F primers are bad or anything I do prefer to have my make up staying on my face. 

Revolution primer cost me £5.00 and I brought 2 of them because I wasn’t so sure how long it was going to last or how long I will need to wait to get another one so my best bet was to get two. All together for both at £5.00 each came to £10.00. 

Revolution Concealer and define C5 which is a Rose sort of colour. I thought I’ll give this ago as I asked my sisters advice of what’s a better concealer than Collection Concealer which costs £4.19 something like that. I was running out of Concealer at the time; I tend to find that I was replacing Collection Concealer a lot more than anything as it was pretty much hardly anything in it I found, so my sister recommended me this one by revolution as she uses it and she had told me that she found it quite easy to use and it seems to last longer than she has used others in the past. By the way my sister also said that the primer that I just talked about is pretty good too.  My sister works in a make up store so she pretty good at knowing her stuff.  

Again I just liked the feel of revolution and the amount that covers my face than collection does; I have been with collection for a number of years now, I do find mixing it up and trying knew things really good because you never know what’s actually good for you and get the make up that you in away you want it to be. I prefer to get the cheapest first to see how it goes; if it works out better than I think then I may consider getting the next one that costs a bit more than the one I’ve got at the moment in which is okay. 

Revolution Concealer and define for a small one cost me £4.00 it’s pretty neat little thing where you can even put it into your small hang bag on your night out or your weekend away too.  

Imperial Leather bubble bath has to be one of my favourite brands when I need bubble bath but like when I have the money and on offer at the time. I do have one current favourite which is marshmallow bubble bath; just the smell of marshmallows in the bath is so nice and scented, especially when it comes to  this time of year when you just need some chilling out and having relaxing bath with the warmth of the bath. 

Currently Imperial Leather has brought out a limited addition of cosmic unicorn. I thought it be quite cool and intriguing what it would be like because to me it doesn’t smell like anything to me but it could smell really nice. Yet I wouldn’t know without trying so I thought I’ll give it ago to see and find out. 

Both were on a deal for any 2 for £2 on the whole imperial leather bubble bath stuff. So I decided to choose these two because one is unique and different the other one is just my favourite at the end of the day. 

Please remember that I am not being sponsored by Superdrug or any of the brands I’m just sharing my interest, what I like and what’s the best things to try out that’s different. 

Daily Comedy Kittens – Kittens Saturdays – Nicked R Us

One way cheer me this morning bubba 1 nicked my pop sock that disappears when wearing canvas or dolly shoes. She seems to only like those socks from me and no other socks what so ever. I couldn’t be bothered to go after her this morning to get it back; I was like you can have it if you like I’m not bothered, and I know you have fettish for feet. Best start of you’re morning of a Saturday (22.9.18) to have a sock being nicked. Not the first time she did it so it won’t be the last. 

Also earlier today one of them had nicked my sisters jumper/hoodie to begin with I thought they nicked my work fleece at the time. One of them looked at me like what did I do? Even with the evidence on the floor around them which was funny. 

Since we’ve had the kittens they are starting to come out more and more of themselves; we only found out that she started to nick shoes and socks was when she fooled everyone to making us believe that they both running about playing. Until  we heard a load thump at the end of the stairs; one of my parents said to my sister that bubba 2 was behind the living room door, so my sister went to investigate what bubba 1 had got and she found her underneath the table with one of her shoes. 

It was so funny. From then on it became frequent that bubba 1 would play with shoes left in the living room, wearing them and walking around in them on her head. Let alone attacking the shoes when they are on you’re feet especially with shoe laces. 

Bubba 2 is less bothered about nicking clothing and shoes except this morning with my sisters hoodie. She normally just goes for the shoe laces and the tassels of clothing or on shoes. Generally she wants to smell other peoples food to see what they having for that day; tried to nick some chicken off one my parents plate last night (21.9.18) because we all know that she likes chicken and so does her sister. She has done a few times put her face in peoples glasses of water, coffee, and etc you’re like really. Sometimes you don’t realise she’s going to do it before it’s too later she’s done it. 

She’s licked out the rest of my parents breakfast bowl one time when they had finished it, she stuck her head in one of my parents porridge when they went out of the living room and leaving it unattended. Then complained that she was licking her porridge and we were like why did you leave it unattended then? 

Oh she tried ginger nut biscuits apparently they thought she was just licking the wrapper but she wasn’t she was actually licking a biscuit. Why would leave it unattended with kitten who likes to be adventurous? That’s just asking for trouble haha. 

You just need to be quick off the mark before anything than just sitting there willing nearly think that everything going to be fine. Unless you know what’s good and what’s not good for them.

Daily Comedy Kittens – Kittens Fridays – Tiny Tempers

In the last couple days we’ve seen them both get upset about something. When I say “we” I mean me and my sister because we do tend to spend quite a lot with them. I spend monjority of my time during the day with them between my job as soon as my sister comes home and through the back door at 6:45pm my sister takes over. 

Yeah they come to me now and then for reassurance and etc. They do get excited when they see her through the windows and run/bounce to the window; as soon as the kitchen door opens they run straight to her, to say “hello” sometimes meow loudly to say “food” as they know it’s close to their dinner time too. 

We know that they have tried to stop both of us a few times from leaving to go to work because we’re their safety net. So we know that they do get a bit upset about that but don’t show it as they know they’ve got another soul protector in the house to protect them. 

Bubba 1 showed a few signs of upset and a bit of temper because she’s not use to the whole strong winds and rain lashing about onto the windows. Wind gushing down the fire place that you can’t cover up or block it from making so much noise. Trust me I’ve asked and you can’t. That’s probably explains why they were pretty much tired all day today as the wind kept them up. 

I literally had to calm her down a bit on Wednesday (19.9.18) and yesterday (20.9.18) because she didn’t know what to do or where I was so she could relax. Until she did find me and had a few strokes and cuddles she managed to calm down and fall asleep. Not even sure why they were asleep in the dining room on Wednesday but they learnt their lesson and yesterday they slept in the living room and they both were perfectly fine. 

Bubba 2 you may think being a confident little kitten being adventurous and cause mischief more than the other one. Oh boy when she doesn’t get in a room she wants or the person not giving her attention or thinking that they are leaving her. She throws her little tampturm and meows like she upset. 

She did that on Wednesday night (19.9.18) my sister locked the bathroom door after bubba 2 left; she meowed, picking the carpet by the door trying to get in, she was besides herself didn’t know what to do. She laid on the washing basket lid completely upset even when looking at me as I came to her. 

I picked her up carried her to my room. She laid on my bed; I laid next to her wrapped my arms around her to make her feel safe, making her feel better until she fell asleep for awhile. Once my sister had finished in the bathroom as soon as she heard the lock go from the door and she was up happy again because she knew she could be in the bathroom again along with seeing my sister again. You could say she’s an anxious kitten when she wants to be under all of the adventures and mischievous that she is. 

Even first thing yesterday morning (20.9.18) when my sister was going into the shower but bubba 2 missed her chance to have her good morning strokes and cuddles from my sister. She came back downstairs to me with her meows of upsets; so I stroked her and give her cuddles to make everything alright again, I messaged my sister to say that bubba 2 came running up the stairs to see her but missed her chance. 

My sister came out after she had her shower and what not. She meowed called bubba 2 and she sprinted her little legs could carry her up the stairs to have her morning routine cuddles and strokes. 

Didn’t realise how cute they can be when they have their little tantrums. Bubba 2 did the exact same thing today trying to get in because she wanted my sister. Luckily my sister was quick enough to stop her from going any further with the carpet as she heard her going for the door and the carpet again.

Star Light Categories – Throwbackthursday – Relationships Advice

Relationship advice…Relationship advice….I’m pretty much not good at theses things to be honest. It’s all down to common sense to perfectly honest with you; well from the outside of someone’s else’s relationship going down the pain but sometimes it is hard to see ones own problems, and get defensive about other people sticking their noises in. 

We are all human at the end of the day. Well depends on what the relationship type is; from abuse, trafficking and etc that’s not right or human way to act in my opinion.  Each to their own ways of dealing with arguments, love, happiness and etc at the end of the day you may of met you’re true love. Arguments are pretty normal if you ask me in any situation of a relationship; you both work together on the problems, get through them and be there for each other. 

Sometimes relationships don’t work out and that’s fine. Move on and learn from it. Yes it hurts. Yes it takes time to heal. Yes you think it’s you and that there’s generally something wrong with you. I have those quite a lot when I have an argument with someone that I love or something along those lines. 

I pretty much believe that there is something is wrong with me at the best of the times no matter what people say to me. It takes me awhile to get my head around the fact that it isn’t me and I should literally let go off it all and the pain.  

It does help if you have a good friendship with someone who can just be there for like no one else would. Know your pain and suffering. Also to help you get yourself back up again. Just remember you are you and there’s literally nothing wrong with you. 

 

Daily Comedy Kittens – Kittens Thursdays – We have a foot fetish kitten!

That’s right…you read the title correctly we have a foot fetish kitten in the family. Our sweet chilled, shy, quiet kitten Bubba 1 has fixation of feet. To the point we think it sweet and funny because to us it’s weird and funny; to the point of bubba 1 she likes feet, and wants to play with them so all in all we dance about whilst we try and walk or sit down as she plays with them. 

When we first got them both we didn’t know that one of them liked feet, socks, shoes and shoe laces. Until the first day we got them I was laying on my sisters floor to be their height; so they can smell me, working out who I am and etc. I fell asleep on floor stupidly for some reason; I woke up to bubba 1 nibbling my toes and smelling my feet, I was like really bubba 1. 

Ever since then she’s gone for my feet, my sisters feet, my parents, my bothers feet and few other peoples feet mostly us four as they see us everyday. Bubba 1 has recently started to nick my socks, all of our shoes and even wearing it most of them on their head. Even attacking the shoes especially of my parents flip flops. 

I think we’ve got to the point of all well it happens it happens. You know when they start to nick things. Just literally went down to figure out which kitten I just picked up and was laying on my bed got confused by the white markings one of them is starting to get their white markings underneath. To find out as I got downstairs that one of them had nicked my insole out of my shoe again not sure how but they did. I know part of it was coming out but I didn’t expect them to manage to get the whole thing out. 

I might just get them one pair of shoes and socks so they can have one shoe each and a sock each to play with as they both seem to like playing with shoes now. Trust me bubba 2 is coping the other bubba 1 but with style by having her favourite ball to play with.

Star Light Categories – Mid-Week Post – Autumn has started to arrive!

As autumn has officially started to arrive; leaves have started to turn to different colours, conquers will come and fall around the 28th September the only reason that I remember that is because it’s my cousin’s birthday around then and his sister named him conquer because that’s when he was going to be born. 

Today’s been a strange one guys to may of noticed that I’ve published quite a few blogs today; the only reason was that I had another day off from work, and I managed to get things done off my list whilst having hyperactive kittens going on in the back ground. 

(19.9.18) Todays weather had been wild strong winds, rain and sunny then rain again briefly. You know when autumn and end of summer are at each other’s throats because no one wants the change. I do find that it feels like we only just had snow and skipped the heat wave and everything then back to autumn and winter again. Does anyone else feel like this?

Daily Comedy Kittens – Kittens Wednesday – Fussy eaters!

Fussy eaters for two kittens. We got them two different types of food to see which one they would prefer but to be fair we were trying to see the best cheaper options as well but as soon as we gave them the cheapest which initials the same as the Felix kitten food in it. 

Trust me they didn’t even like that one single bit they have a bit of it; however the would refuse to eat all afternoon, like they would have a stand off with us who would feed them and then you know that they prefer Felix food than a company made food that we got it from. 

So we now know that we aren’t getting the ones that they don’t like even though they are the same food. We knew they don’t like beef, cod and few other things so we know what to go for now we know what they like and won’t give it to them again. 

They are so funny. They even get hyperactive with their own milk when we give it to them luckily we only give it to them twice a week. Oh boy they go bombers even more than normal; does take them a long time to calm down however I wouldn’t have it any other way, brings life into the house and etc. 

We are still learning from them and they are learning from us we can’t always guess what they like and don’t like without giving it ago. No one is perfect at the end of the day but we’ve got to tell them that things that they aren’t allowed to do and what they are allowed to do. Sometimes we are like all well it happens it happens at the end of the day. Try again tomorrow and so on. Doesn’t really happen over night but it does take time to do things and that’s the whole point of training.

Everyday Daily Stories – Mental Health Issues – “People should be locked up and play about with meds”

“Sadly, not much help out there for the mentally ill. Lock them up for a month  and ply them with tablets ☹” – Facebook comment on my local radio/newspaper article about someone who was in a venerable place. 

I was pretty reading the article I did feel sorry the person quite a lot. As I understand a lot more through my own problems but what upsets me is that people comment or say things that they don’t actually understand themselves but saying “I should be able to walk here” or “if they are going to jump…jump already” which to my opinion is quite selfish of them to say that because they are just thinking about themselves and not helping others. 

I was reading some of the comments through this one case that got me really upset and cross. I’m not naming the person or calling them out because I’m not that sort of a person. The comment that I put up in my opening statement to me personally makes me think that they are one of those posh sobs in my hometown its my opinion as I don’t know the person but the comment led me to think they are. 

Yes there’s not much help out there for mentally ill people but why is it all coming out now making people know it’s there. Making the change and making the difference. To say people should be locked up for a month and ply them with tablets. 

That’s not right at all. Firstly people years ago in our history were locked up for that reason because they didn’t know how to deal with it along with learning disabilities and etc. Second of all being locked up and been given tablets won’t solve anything because the problems are still there. Locked up is just for another way of keeping them safe but tablets don’t actually make the pain and thoughts go away. It just numbs it to reduce the much of the thoughts. 

I should know as I’m on medication I have my highs and lows trust me it’s not a pretty sight when I have my lows. Yet I always find away out of it in the end. All I ask be considerate about other people wellbeing who are struggling even if we don’t know what is wrong. Saying lock them up and give them tablets would fix the problem; that really doesn’t solve the problem in the first place, yes people need help but at the end of the day if people make comments like that the one I just shared. 

Is that helping the person or other people who may need the help in the first place? To me it seems that comment really not helpful what so ever because it makes me angry that people think like that. Second of all police have to deal with this sort of thing day to day and they are protecting us as civilians if they do jump and don’t want us to get some sort of trauma from it. Third of all the police are helping the person by talking them out of it and get the right help through the right channel of experience that they don’t have. Fourth point the police, fire services, ambulance services and etc see a lot of traumatic things when they are on the front line; they get effected by it all too, but they don’t get support from what’s just happened or anything. All they do is get the cuts from the system because the home sectary and money bags budget person think it’s better to cut it from there than their own pay packet. 

So the next time you hear about someone becoming unsafe or see someone thinking about committing suicide; talk to them, talk them out of it be that person who saved their lives and most importantly be the good Samaritan help them to seek help. They know someone is listening to them and someone is there to lend a hand. Just don’t ignore them because you don’t want to know or you’re on a mission to be somewhere.

Daily Comedy Kittens – Kittens Tuesday – The most battered box I’ve seen!

Since having the kittens for a month still love them very much indeed. They are two peas in a pod; love each other, hate other, protective over each other, play with each other and most importantly get jealous of one another. Let alone coping without each other to say the least. 

Both bubbas like different things bubba 1 likes soft toys and bubba 2 likes round balls to play with. However when it comes to shiny sparkly Pom Pom balls it’s different because they both want to play with it; we worked out that we had two different colours and different sizes, so it didn’t matter in the end. 

However we’ve had this one box since they have arrived at my house they got it from my aunt and uncle since then; the kittens battered it, jumped it, played in it chewed it, curled in it and running around with it on their heads when we put the box over their heads. 

They literally enjoy this one box so much that I’m surprised it’s still standing to be perfectly with you because most of their toys haven’t last a week or so because they love them. The box on the other hand if you put the box on one kitten the other kitten will try to find her sister and play fight with them if they can see their tale sticking out or their paw sticking out. One would get overly excited and pushes the box all around the room, knocking it over, jumping into it and so on. 

Trying to teach them to joint share things but sometimes that doesn’t work but something they do like is the box, no matter what they do or how they do it. You think what are you on? Whatever it is I want it? Even the impossible things that we think we can’t do or they won’t do but they manage to do it.

Star Light Categories – Teen Lifestyle: “Growing up watching people get lairy” – Story Based

Sitting in a back of class thinking I wish I wasn’t in school as I watch people getting lairy; to be quite honest it’s not very pretty sight I can tell you that, as I’m now whole lot older walking through town at night is quite scary but it’s not very sensible either by you’re self.

I got told by a friend or a friend that he got beaten all because he looked the wrong way by a group of youths. Yet it wouldn’t of happened if he hadn’t been there at all. I  could tell you know that I could predict a riot any day now.

I tried to get into my taxi the other day and a man in a tracksuit attacks me stating the fact that he saw it first. Yet it was a gang that had set him up completely so he could impress them and have a bit of glory. 

I start to see who I think it is who had everything going for them scrabbling around with no clothes on just earn money. If it wasn’t for the chippy down the road they would of been frozen by now. They aren’t sensible anymore than I remember. 

Is there anybody left out there that doesn’t want that life? Who really doesn’t want to be out there in the streets thinking that this is the only option for them. You can change your life around now if you know where to go and who can challenge you the most and not get into these types of things.
