My Lush Haul

Hellooo

Love lush? Of course you bloody well do. I’m that person who can’t walk past the Lush Shop without buying anything, it’s like the smell hypnotises me to go in… I am a huge fan of their products that most of the time leaves you soft and smelling good enough to eat!

I decided to do a post to share my favourite products with you from www.Lush.co.uk

Here’s my ultimate favourite

CINDERS – Bath Bomb

Cinders bath bomb

Now this smells amazing! If your a fan of fruit smells

and a hint of cinnamon you will love this. I have been buying cinders for years now but unfortunately it is only available at christmas (Sad Face) Hint Lush you need to sort this!. The bath bomb is a small Orange ball with cinnamon leafs and fizzes in your bath to leave a warm scent that the ultimate relaxer. Note that this bath bomb has been known to stain my bath a yellow colour but soon comes off!

Available here – Cinders Bath Bomb

PHOENIX RISING – Bath Bomb

Phoenix Rising

This just looks so cool and has a great sent to go along with it as well, another cinnamon scent! This fizzes in your bath turning it a lovely deep purple colour and it left my skin feeling really moisturised after a good soak in the bath, most likely because it is packed with Shea and Cocoa butter! There was also a lovely gold shimmer too that didn’t stick to my skin making me look like an oscar statue. Love It.

GOLDEN EGG – Bath Bomb

Golden Egg

Now This is a new find of mine, the new easter collection has come into store and as soon as I picked it up I was sold. IT SMELLS AMAZING (as does most of the lush stuff but…HEY) Now this is literally a golden egg covered in a gold glitter, so theres my warning (yes this a messy one)  you will be covered in glitter afterwards. This is a bath melt at the start so it makes the bath extremely creamy that adds to the moisturising effect. It then turns into a bath bomb that fizzes and releases a GORGEOUS Honey/Toffee/ Sweet Orange scent. My skin was left glittery and moisturised from the columbian cocoa butter, even though the amazing scent didn’t linger for very long.

Available here – Golden Egg

KARMA BUBBLE BAR – Bubble Bar

Karma Bubble Bar

Now who isn’t a fan of bubbles? Bubble bars are a favourite of mine and this produces LOADS of them! The Karma bubble bar smells very exotic and orangey, the fragrance used is also a perfume so you know it will be good! You crumble this product under the running water and the goodness is released to make fragrant bubbles. This smell lingers on your skin for ages, I always feel like a hippy when I use this. Long live Sweet orange oil, which is soon becoming my favourite.

Available here – Karma Bubble Bar

YUZU AND COCOA – Bubble Bar

YUZU and COCOA

This was the first bubble bar I had ever tried and I have never regretted this purchase.  This is another AMAZING Smell, DO you love jaffa cakes? then this is for you. This jam is packed with cocoa butter and Shea butter and even my beauty fav (coconut oil) which creates a creamy chocolate scent and it is also mixed with citrus oil to reveal a lovely orange scent in the mix and VOILA  you got jaffa cake. This is unbelievably moisturising and gives your skin an instant lift.

Available here – Yuzu and Cocoa bubble bar

WONDER WOOHOO – Bubble Bar

Wonder Woohoo

Another new easter find for me, I do seem to be drawn to a bit of glitter (Guilty) . There seems to be a theme going around this Easter of orange and this is no exception. Packed with mimosa absolute, sandalwood oil and Brazillian orange oil this is what I would like to think Florida would be like if it was well… a bubble bar. It smells exotic and very summery, You do get covered in glitter but the smell makes up for it. I do feel some cocoa butter wouldn’t of gone a miss here though as I was missing the moisturising element after using this,

YOU’VE BEEN MANGOED –  Luxury bath melt

You'v been mangoed

If your looking for something extra moisturing and smells delicious this is for you. Packed with an exotic fragrance combined with citrus, cocoa butter and mango oils, just smelling this in the store made my mouth water. Once in the bath the water is transformed into a creamy fruity heaven and your skin feels extremely brightened and refreshed, Wish this product was bigger though!

Available here – You’ve been Mangoed

 

SOFT COEUR – Massage bar

Soft Coeur

Another sweet orange oil product and packed with cocoa and shea butters! Amazingly moisturising great for people who have dry skin like me, I used this after a bath using the golden egg as a bath bomb and was left smelling like a jaffa cake from all the sweet orange oil and cocoa butter. My skin was left feeling moist and hydrated. I would avoid using the middle brown bit as it smudges on your skin.

Available here – Soft Coeur

 

LET THE GOOD TIMES ROLL – Cleanser

let the good times roll

I was given a sample of this by the lovely people of lush and immediately fell in love with it, it smells like toffee popcorn and even contains popcorn! It’s a gentle cleanser that softens and exfoliates your skin. My face was left super soft with a smell lingering of Golden syrup porridge. I only use a bit of this as I mix it with water to make it more creamy, since I’ve started using this my skin has become clearer and my completion has improved tremendously. Lovely.

Available here – Let the Good Times Roll

 

What a load of slime – Snail Facials

So for £50 are you prepared to let snails slime their way over your face for 20 minutes for an instant glow?… Definitely Not. I had to turn up my nose at the article  in ‘The Mirror’ explaining that ‘The trail of mucus which is said to contain highly beneficial proteins, anti-oxidants, and anti-bacteria’… but it also forgets to mention that it most likely contains shit too. I mean Come on…  I for one will not be putting my name down for the treatment.

Yes Mr Snail, I feel the same way.

The Life of Job Hunting begins

I am now a graduate of The University Of Lincoln ( for those Inbetweeners fans ‘Goodbye first rate education, Hello University Of Lincoln’) or goodbye in my case! It has been an emotional roller coaster filled with laughter, red bull and supernoodles. I am now opening my eyes to real world in where looking for jobs is the first thing I do in the morning to the last ( apart form checking one directions twitter of course). It difficult to decide what i want to do, as I just keep hoping the perfect job will jump out at me ( Cough Cough Sugarscape or One Directions PA) but reality has hit me and tossing burgers seems a more likely choice.  I have gone from wanting a job in journalism,Theatre, scriptwriting, photography, Filmmaking, social media and becoming a Youtuber. So From today I have given myself tasks until October to keep my head in the game.

1. Write to EVERY one i can in regards to internships and start networking

2. Start writing a sitcom (Ive gathering ideas for a while now)

3. Do a blog post everyday!

4. REMAIN POSITIVE – You never know miracles do happen!

Starbucks and Costa festive drinks

The past couple of years, i have turned into a hot drink lover, i seem to never turn down a cup of tea or coffee. Recently myself and friends have taken it upon ourselves to have coffee dates in the town. I don’t know whether this a sign of we’re ‘trying’ to grow up and act sophisticated, I more see it as central Perk from friends. A gathering of girlfriends going to gossip and enjoy a hot beverage.

 

 

The start of our ‘dates’ soon came to the debate of where to go. We were soon faced with the dilemma of Starbucks or Costa?. We first tried Costa as one of my friends love the place and often visits. I was soon greeted with strong smell of coffee and cakes that soon had my mouth-watering. Being the season of winter and christmas fast approaching, we were also greeted with winter themed drinks such as slated caramel latte, praline and cream latte, creme brulee latte, black forest hot chocolate and honeycomb hot chocolate. I have to admit i was disappointed with my choice as I tried the creme brûlée latte, as I felt it tasted of a regular latte.

 

 

 

 

Having a craving walking home from the coffee date, i walked past a Starbucks and couldn’t resist myself popping in and grabbing a drink to go. I was also greeted by the option of festive drinks and couldn’t help bought order a praline mocha frappuccino. I often struggle with the choice of hot drinks or afrappuccino as I find them both refreshing even in this cold weather!.

I have to admit I was very satisfied with my drink, as i believe it or not tasted like pralines. I let my friend try the drink and she also agreed that it was very tasty, way better than the ones we had  at costa, even though we do remain fan’s of their strawberry lemonade!

 The decision to take regular trips to Starbucks has become apparent, I am slowly but surely making my way through their drinks menu and enjoying every second of it. So my winner of festive drinks has to go to Starbucks, but costa is down but not out.
