box de lux. first box. first impressions

so finally finally after super long wait i recieved my box de lux. it is a beauty themed subscription box all in coming together to 18.95 pounds. i checked out their web page and looked at previous boxes and it seemed ok price for what they are offering in the boxes as most of the times there is full size products as well as new and unexpected items.  in other words must have.
the box it self. i thought the box it self have really nice sturdy feel to it. kept very simplistic black with their logo on the top. which i think makes this box very reusable. it arived in another brown box. and they where using royal mail to post it.  when i opened the box it did seemed like it have been a bit kicked around in the post office making the tissue paper to tear and things being upside down etc.  but luckaly notting was riped or opened or anything like that.  i was suprized that there is no leaflet about the products or anything so it seemed a bit strange but in same time less paper to get rid of later. trought the box they used shreded paper to keep things in place. all together there is 5 full size products. 
1. felicitys chocolate. i recieved a small box of these chocolates. there is 8 in the pack and they are quite good sized. on the lable it says that they have the graphic print called sarah2 wich must say is quite nice and interesting and could make a good gift to someone, must say a leaflet would be handy now stating the prices of the items. from the top the chocolates look really nice but when taken out they do seem a bit rushed to make.  do taste really nice. i personaly would have prefared dark chocolate but this makes a good change. 
2. anatomicals, snog me senseless minty tingly lip balm. i never had a lip balm like this before.  its quite tick lip balm which i always love about things like this cos it makes it easier to apply a good layer of it.  when its put on lips at start you just feel like its a normal lip balm but in couple seconds it starts to give this minty feel.  like the tingling that is talked about on the packageing. this made me thing of feeling i get after brushing my teeth with a really strong flavour tooth paste.  only on my lips.  its hard to explain but must say i love it.  it smells really fresh and minty too but does not taste it haha. really looking forward to using this in my every day rutine. 
3. heyland & whittle soap. this is like a set of 3 different kind of soaps.  the 1st seem to have like a rose flavour the second is quite orangey and the last must say makes me think of like when i was little little like 2 3 my gran used to use these soap for washing clothes this is what it makes me think of, which is not the nicest smell.  recently i been quite into using normal soap again rather than the shower gels as for pure fact my dad got me some from london and i been loving it since. these soap do give me this weird organic feel and makes me think that they are natural with no chemicals etc meaning it will work good with my dry skin.
4. sweets in the city candy in sherbert lemon flavour. mini cube. so obvious the first thing that i noticed is the masive sticker saying sugar free treats meaning the sweeties are full with sweeteners but they do taste really nice.  a settle leamon flavour not that very strong sour taste that most people dont like. one thing i m not too keen on is the size of the sweets as it just seems that ur eating the thing for million years but a good thing if u wana slim down and keep your mouth bussy lol. over all quite a nice little treat.  think be great to leave as a little present for someone.
5. marilou bio. organic hand cream. oh this cream seems like tottal heaven in a tube lol.  when first put on it does seem bit on the oily side but is very very quickly absorbed and leaves instant soft feel to the hands. and it also smells reallly rally good. i do look forward to trying it out properly as all these kind of crams can only do good to mh dry skin. specially would like to find one that i dont need use it every minute of the day to do the job. so i must say this is what i was most exited about and it comes full size in 75ml tube. wich i think is good size fir hand cream. 

over all i think this was a good box.  i do sugest to try it.  just like i said would have been good if there be a leavlet of any kind to say more about the products

angry bird sweeties!

Oh oh oh sweeties of the year . Lol I feel like a child . My bf sent me these angry birds sweets and must say it felt like going back to when was tiny kidy lol they literary are the bestest sweeties ever. I feel so so bad that we can’t get these in uk and they need be ordered but god they tasted so so soo good.

vanilla cake recipe. easy bake

This is reason why 1 becomes lots more sizes biger lol . But here is what u need :
200g plain flour
200g caster sugar
1 tea spoon baking powder
1/2 tea spoon biocarbonate of soda
175g unsalted butter
3 large/medium eggs
2 tea spoons vanilla extract
Some raisins and chocolate chips
600ml double cream

So all u need to do is
1. Take everything out of the fridge so it warms to room temperature
2.Preheat owen to 150c line and butter 2 30cm round trays
3. Mix sugar with butter then mix in the flour , baking powder, biocarbonate, and then add 3 eggs and vanilla extract. Mix all till get to a creamy mix .
4. I made the cake with 2 add ins so devide the mixture in half and in one add some chocolate chips and mix and in other some raisins and mix .
5. Place the mixtures each in 1 tray and bake for about 40 mins start check if ready from 35 mins.
6. Remove the cakes the trays and leave them to cool.
7. Wile waiting . Whip the douple cream with some sugar to make it sweet.
8. When the cakes are cooled place one on a plate and put a thick layer of cream on it and cover it then place the second cake and cover with cream again and if there’s some cream left just cover the sides . I sprinkled some chocolate sprinkles on top just to mix it up and done

Its super easy to make and know it doesn’t look mind blowing but it tastes like heaven and good thing is that u can’t eat lots of it as it quickly fills you up so great for sunday lunch or well thurstday in this case haha

Still being stressed out about the swim suit wearing later on this month when will be in latvia and will hav chance to go to the beach. When was in scotland I decided that when get back ill exersise everyday etc etc which well clearly isn’t happening cos its to warm and I just dnt want to move pure and simple so I thought of better way I cud be losing weight but still doing and eating most things I like . So its pure and simple no more sweeties . It is bit hard specialy if ur sweety lover like my self where at some points it just seems it candy I eat all day so I thought if I dich the sweets and let the pounds drop. Been going sweet free for just over a week and must say 2 cms off my waist and I’m back to magical 66cms but my legs still need lots work so no sweeties for me do sugest try this if u want to lose bit weight without actualy trying 🙂
