Daily Routines – Daily Beauty – Kittens vs Hair Dryer

Today of all days (28.8.18) I had to have a shower and needed to wash my hair otherwise I would left it greasy and looking rough. I then thought no I need to get it done because I hate looking rough and everything. So I did my normal routine as per normal; well try to anyway because I was drying my hair and the kittens were like what is it that loud sound, so I did my normal turn it on and off again for them to get use to it. 

However they didn’t like it very much even though they have heard my hair dryer and two other peoples hair dryers in the house hold. They still haven’t got use to it; in the end I turned it off because I didn’t want to get them become distressed or anything, and I left my hair to dry itself. 

I carried on doing what I do in my normal routine; put my hair extensions in whilst my hair was still wet part dried, and my make up on as per normal whilst my hair was still drying. Completely forgot that my hair go completely fizzy and curly as bad as it can go. But luckily my hair extensions were in because it would of been a lot worse that it is right now. 

I don’t mind it going fizzy and curly but would be nice to be able dry monjority of it. When it’s just you and the kittens no one else was in incase they went nuts. They haven’t done it for awhile for something that they didn’t know what’s going on. Yet sometimes they are alright but it’s funny that one of them doesn’t like my hair brush because they don’t know what it is. What’s even more funny is that sometimes they want to get into my make up when the box is open because they are so intrigued by what’s inside then again they know to sit away near me and not go near it. 

Daily Routines – Sisters forever – Kittens changed my life

Since having the kittens for nearly over a month now; I’ve been at peace with myself, always cheering me up because they are so cute and cheeky together. They are so lively and hyperactive when they are playing together; along with when they have finished playing and chasing after each other they fall asleep next to each other. 

Both bubbas know when one another is upset, scared, in trouble and etc because they protect each other and comfort each other. They even know when someone else is sad, upset, tired and scared they either sit near by or sit and lay next to you like they are protecting you and your protecting them. 

Either one or the other or both follow me around or come into my room just because they love having me in their presences. Along with having lots of cuddles and kisses when they can as well as having the confidence and comfort to come to me for them when it’s needed. 

I call them bubbas because they are my babies when my sister isn’t around as they are hers but they are always be my babies no matter what. I’m quite protective over them; I don’t know what I would do without them to be quite honest with you, at the the end of the day I know they are my sisters kittens and they go where ever she goes. 

Both of them remind me of me and my sister in so many ways from being protective and teaching one another things to having some sort of bounding together. Even once my sister fell asleep in my room when she was little which was funny. The fun thing is that seeing the kittens like being together always reminds me when me and my sister were together. 

Daily Routine – Daily Beauty: E.L.F Primer goes wrong

Going inside with my Superdrug Haul August 2018 post the other day (20.8.18) I wanted to share the E.L.F Primer gone wrong because it literally did go wrong for me; well not for me but for the company that makes it, I literally picked up my usual E.L.F Primer from the company that Superdrug sells it. I didn’t think much of it especially having it’s product inside the bottle. So I did my usual thing by putting things in my basket as one do whilst finishing of doing my shopping in there. You may think why do you need four things to put in a basket. To be quite frankly my hands can’t hold so many things especially if they are different shaped packages. That is the reason why.

By the time I got home I normally would wait until a bit later to put things away but due to the fact of the kittens I had to put everything away so it would be out of their little paws reaching them or their little mouth eating it. I was still not aware that there wasn’t anything in it at the time; 24 hours later past since purchasing the item I had started doing my normal make up routine, I had reached to my primer from E.L.F and I started to press the button of the bottle. 

I heard the whole thing trying to bring something up but there wasn’t anything coming out it was just air coming out; I opened up the bottle lid up to see what was wrong with it and there was literally nothing in it, no product or anything. I picked up the other E.L.F product to see what the weight of it was between the two; continued to figure it out why, and how this could be possible work. Have people been taken out of the packet and using it over time? I looked at the bottom of it and it’s still down. I only know this because of the other one was down it would of gone up if I was being used. 

I soon realised that the manufacturers sent a empty one because of the machine product either broke down or didn’t sense that there wasn’t one there. I told my mum what was wrong and she was like that is very weird and we both weren’t expecting to go back into town that day to exchange it for a new one.

So we went into the store; I went up to a sales assistant to explained that there was nothing inside it when I went to go and use it, I didn’t have the packaging due the fact that my sister has kittens and I had to throw them away quickly before they got to them. 

They literally asked the team leaders and etc. They came to find me and my mum to say that they can do part exchange it for a new one; also let me have a look if there was product in the pot to which there was and I exchanged the one that I previously purchased and to the full product that had it. 

All in all when it’s not you’re fault but the actual manufacturers of these sorts of things; you realise that you have better leg stand on, plus sale assistants who know their make up brands and also other assistants know that it’s been used or not they will know. So don’t use the trick of “I haven’t used it but can do exchange” when clearly you have used it no matter how much you try and clean it. 

Daily Stories – Daily Beauty – Maintaining my make up in this heat

The worst bit when you’re wearing make up in the “Uk heat” is that you need guttering for your sweat or for your make up; due to the fact that it’s like a river flowing straight off my face like nobody knows by lunch time, it’s like what’s the point in putting any on when it comes straight off your face. 

I’ve literally tried everything well not everything but you know what I mean; using some of the stuff that you already got to try out things to make it better, for me I’ve tried to do foundation, concealer, loose powder and compressed powder which is my normal routine. I have tried doing it with foundation, loose powder, compressed powder, concealer, loose powder and compressed powder.

To which it actually works because it has so many layers on it to the point of I have to sweat more if I needed to. I forget when I do my make up and stick to my normal routine because I don’t do the whole system because I look outside and think yeah it be fine. Then by lunch time I just forget about how hot it can get then all of the sudden bam sweat start pouring and I’m like you plank. 

You forgotten haven’t you like you’ve been slapped around with a wet fish on your face. Anyone else have the same problem with that they sweat so much that their make up comes off their face? Could you guys let me know how you deal with it and what products you use to stop your face leaking from sweat and ruining your make up? Please let me know because I don’t know how long we are going to have this awesome wether for.

Wednesday Online Diary Entries: “Throw those curtains wide” – Story Based

Drinking in the morning sun as I lay out in the garden blinking in the warm morning sun; shaking off all the heavy cold cobwebs that we all had from a very long winter like it was a heavy loaded gun, what made me behave that way? Using the words that I thought I would never say because I can only think it must be live but anyway it looks like a beautiful day.
Someone tell me how I feel by just looking at me but you’re answer is so silly because it’s wrong yet vividly right at the same time; kiss me like it was our final meal tonight as if we were going to die tonight, holy cow I just love your eyes that can only help me to see the light and you’re just laying there with you half awake but look it’s a beautiful day.
When my face is chamois creased you may think I winked at you because I did where you laughed politely as it repeats like you kiss me when my lips are thin. Throw those curtains wide because one day like this a year would honestly see me right; baby just throw those curtains wide as a day like this a year would see me right for life.
Just holy cow I just love your eyes now that I can see the light with you as you thrown the curtains wide like today I could spend my day with you like no one else could. Just throw those curtains wide like today we see the sun beaming down on us.

Sunday Special- Our Cases, Our Stories, Our Voices – Can’t afford School Fees

(The fact that I haven't made my good morning Sunday Special Post for this week I've decided to use Sentebaleblogs post just help me out a bit. Just to cover my arse really. Haha not literally guys; just been a paperwork weekend, and I have s new system for Sentebaleblogs I thought hey why not try it out with the lizzysweeklyblogs. Well we all know how that went didn't we? As you have worked out what I'm like on here. Yep compete utter mayhem. Anyways I'll let the kids do the talking now not me. Chow for now)

"Young lives who’s family has no money to send their children to school." – Sentebaleblogs
“I'm Jackson age 7 on the right looking rather cool and really? Really do I have to have my photo taken? Question face along with Ekure really? I rather hide away”
“I'm Tobe I'm 6 years old I will be 7 in December. If my parents didn't come to the home for help I'll just be looking at the pictures and no idea where places are. Fortunately for me I got that chance to change my life. Oh I'm the one next to Jackson reading supposed to be”
“I'm Theresa who's sitting next to Tobe and my annoying funny twin brother Tony who's invading my space as normal. I'm 5 years old I'll be turn 6 in November yet I'll be sharing it with Tony’
“I'm Tony. I'm also 5 and be turning 6 in November along with my twin Theresa; I'm the most outgoing out of the two of us, as you can see in the picture and I am the most cheesiest but I have this special connection if there's something wrong with Theresa I would feel it too. But also she has that special super power too.”
To the start every parent worst nightmare is not being able to provide, support, or even give their children the best start in life. That's what happened to these lovely children; there parents couldn't afford the school fees as it was too expensive for them to pay for the material, uniform and many more. Yet for these awesome guys they are going to school because their parents came to us for help; we've given them the life time of having the best start, achieve the goals that they want to achieve.
Their parents quick thinking and no who to come to for help. We worked with their parents to proved their school fees; to which now they are going to school everyday to be able to learn, and to succeed in life that they want to be when they grow up. There are so many families like our four stars that need our help to get their children into schools to achieve what their parents couldn't achieve.

“See…we need help just to go to school otherwise we end up not being able to read or write or even achieve our dreams of what we want to do in life.” – Promise

The Summer Top Up Sale

Just as July about to start; I start running out of cream, where best to get nice moisture cream. None other than The Body Shop think I have found me go to store guys; even when it’s a bargain bucket going on there guys, if you work out the best deals when you go in. 

After a series of researching of how much of my fine luxury items that I had brought in The Body Shop summer sale; I had to do a bit of maths to know what the percentage was of each product, I do have to point out that I did have to use a calculator to workout. Never got on with maths in the first place; plus the receipt didn’t really have much of the original price to it, so I had to look it up for starters. 

I do have to confess my dear sweet readers; I don’t even have Maths GCSE, not because I didn’t want to learn. It was because I didn’t like it and it didn’t like it; so I gave up even trying to get on with it, that’s what calculators are for in my book. Along with I prefer the whole writing side of things than maths calculations; that’s why I wouldn’t want to work in a store again, however is a maths question for you. I want to see if you can work it out; by the time you get to the end of the bottom of this blog, which one will last the longest and more cheapest way of doing it. 

Okay. I walked into The Body Shop with one of my closest friends Megan Ann; to begin I started picked up three different types of body cream Shea, Strawberry and Almond & milk. Each product had 200ml with the costing of each pot of £15 a time; with one pot it may take me a month and few days to use up, if I had three of those it would cost me £45 for three months.

As I went round the table I had seen a sale on the table. Once I had got round to the other side; to my amazement I could get more in a big pot of moisturising cream, in each one pot came with 400ml. The original price of the product was £30 each; however with the sale on using the 10% which came down to £20 a pot. From the original price of £30 I would get 60 days worth of money from having two products that big; using the sale of 10% which comes to £20, I would get 40 days out of the two products. 60 days is roughly 12 weeks in total use of both products; with the summer sales of £20, the number of weeks of 40 days are roughly 12 weeks. It looks more likely the 400ml is more worth it than the 200ml moisturiser that I had originally. 

When it comes to the shower gel if I went for the 250ml strawberry shower gel costing me £5 a time. Compare it to the big strawberry shower gel at 750ml at the original price of £15.00 to the sale price of 5% which came to £10.00. This big bottle can last me about 3-5months; as I had brought this on my birthday at the start of the year, yep that’s a lot of showers and baths in that time. 

All in all my little goodies came to £50 just for three items that I use daily; what’s more is that if I brought three pots of 200ml and the shower gel, it would be £55 all together. So the best option for me to get the three goodies for £50 than four goodies for £55.

Apologies if my maths isn’t correct it’s just an average estimate thing than the full thing. Love my little hauls that I love getting that I use daily. I will have another haul coming soon keep an eye out for it in the next couple of days; something that you may think, hang on this is completely different to than any other haul she has done

When your best friend tries to do a surprise/how to create new friendships.


The day that you best friend gives your email address to their grandmother; even if it was a massive surprise, your immediate reaction is to want to punch them. Of course I wouldn’t do that but as a friend/friendly punch that I do to my friends.

The most awkward thing can ever happen is when your best friend trying to do a surprise for you; you know when you hate surprises but they still trying to do something nice for you, it was still a surprise when you know who it is. 

Yep my friend had just done that number on me; thanks Caspian now I’ve got to get use to that one as well, not like it’s awkward enough. To be fair good call on the whole front of introducing me to the family slowly; than quickly throw me into the deep end of everything, but really I’ve just got use to you haha. All well. 

I don’t mind with the whole family affair of people talking to me; but I do love Caspian grandmother, the way he talks about her and that we have similar characteristics. On which reminds him that I’m like her in so many ways; to which point Missy his grandmother, I do have to say is one incredible woman being determined to talk to me even on a late hour. 

My grandparents wouldn’t even know what half of the social media is; even when one of them has it, but still doesn’t understand how to use it but wants to look at what his grandchildren are doing. 

However creating new friendships through people is the best way forward; otherwise you will never get very far in life, if your going down the same road with the same friends etc. It’s hard that once you got use to your friends that you made; then when you make new ones somewhere else, you don’t know what to do or what to say. Here are some useful tips on getting passed that initial fear of meeting new people.

  1. Realising that your fear of meeting new people is most probably all inside your head – Each time you move around wether it’s from moving house, jobs, schools or even just want to meet new people to get out of your comfort zone. You start to think no one will like me, they will look into my past and judge me, judge me for who I am and etc. Which isn’t true; unless they are a bad egg then ignore them; they are worthless people, who need to change.
  2. Start out with a group of people who you are already friends with – No matter don’t forget your other friends when you move on; the best part is that they’ve always got your back no matter what, also you can expand on meeting new people through them as well. 
  3. Get yourself out there – Most people like me are quite shy and etc but at times you have to push yourself, keep showing up, do something that’s strong and that will help you get noticed.
  4. Take the first step – realising of taking the first step is the hardest thing ever; look for something that’s more interesting to you, than that doesn’t interest in you. Stimulating your mind helps you focus and explore more to help open more in your brain to connect with each other. 
  5. Be open minded – be open minded because if you don’t you will never know; embrace the unknown, don’t knock it before you try it, say “yes” than say “no” otherwise people may think your lazy or something, think 3 positives and one negative and etc
  6. Get to know the person – Get to know the person you could either play games like would you rather, get to know someone knew by learning how they think, instate the conversion, show your best self, be friendly, be patient, respect other people’s interest, pay close attention to the person, stay independent, spend time together, let there be positives and negatives, let the person know your interests are, share information and feelings, invite them to gatherings, spend more time together.
  7. Connect with genuine person – Always try to understand what people really mean when they speak, Always let the speaker be the star, The Barrier. This is going to back fire on me is so many ways; as you will see the next value point, in this moment in time. You may have your own thoughts and feelings about things; but you have the right to have opinions, so does the other person if you don’t agree with them. Nevertheless they may become over powering but let them; as long as you know that your true to yourself, what’s more you know your rights. 
  8. Be yourself – Get in touch with your inner child, Become more aware of your thoughts. As I said in the last point I’m going back fire on myself here but it all ties in together; just be yourself and stay true to yourself no matter what people say or do, you have your own mind. 
  9. Be there for them – Reach out – a conversation, text or call goes a long way, Listen, don’t judge, Do something together. Good friends are always there to reach out to their friends in need; no matter how far away they are, they will always be there by a phone call away. 
  10. Make the effort to stay in touch – Social Media: A Blessing and a Curse, Why Don’t You Just Call Them?, Coping With Guilt, Overcoming Awkwardness. No matter if a friend has moved away or moved on; always make an effort to stay in touch no matter how busy you are, or what’s gone on just get in touch every so often.

When your bored! 


Introduction 

Well did have a plan for today’s blogs but in the end had an idea and it was a new exciting one if that. Nothing like creating something new when you bored let me explain down below. 

When your bored!

So this morning it took me awhile to get ready and etc; doesn’t really matter as it’s a Saturday, means now work and etc. Me and my best friend decided to snap chat each other like everyone else does these days; it occurred to me that I can save them, the ones that I made and do a video. That’s what I did. I think I’ve just unleashed the whole new social media side of blogging as well but still carrying on writing blogs and etc on here. 

The link is here to check it out apologies if some of them are repeat I put them on Instagram and didn’t realise until it was too late to change it. https://youtu.be/_6HySoVkO6s

Something we are not


Introduction 

There’s two types of people that I have come across. The one where you’ve got people who talk about themselves a lot and manipulate people and you have people just keep things to themselves to themselves. 

Something we are not

Not too sure what or where I got this title from but I think it was from a song that gave me an idea; anything can give me an idea without thinking sometimes that’s how I work, that’s what makes me me.

To my readers this is not at aimed anyone just an observation of myself and people around me. I have noticed and have become more aware that people around me talk more about themselves than think of anyone else around them. People that I have observed throughout life so far; can be so manipulative, brag about themselves and complain about anything under the sun. 

Then you have someone like me who don’t complain, moan, tell my whole life story (unless something that I can relate to like now I can relate to this in a blog but this is like work for me) keep everything to myself bottled up until something happens. Sometimes you guys will know if something has happened that I haven’t blogged for a few days or a day. 

People really are not the same as each other; they really aren’t, I get to the point of when someone has annoyed me to the point that I would most likely to loose it with someone. Don’t rarely loose it with people but when they know that they have peeved me off they know not to say anything else. My friends know when to back off when I need space to calm down then come round and then I’ll talk. They know it might take all day or few hours to calm down or even sometimes to the point of they know when to step in if I haven’t calm down. They know it’s not me and I know it’s not them when they have a rough day.
