Lush Products Review ♡

Hey Everyone,

If you are anything like me then  you love Lush. Who doesn’t right? And it seems recently I have collected a number of amazing new products to try and I have just instantly fell in love with all of them and of course as it was recently Christmas, treating myself to some old favourites.

Obviously as it is that time of year, I have to talk about ‘Snow Fairy’. This is one of my all-time favourite Lush products, the smell is utterly addictive and so sweet and I always find it perks me up in the mornings. I love how fresh and clean it makes me feel and I love how the smell stays with you even out of the bath. I also love how it makes me feel extra festive with the hint of sparkle.

$RI2RSMPLeading on from ‘Snow Fairy’, I now have to talk to you about ‘Candy Mountain’. This bubble bar is just amazing. I’m obsessed with the sweet candy smell and how soft it makes my skin feel after the bath. It’s also feels so luxurious when you crumble it up under running water and it turns your bath into a bubbly, comforting, creamy candy scented heaven. It makes the perfect gift for friends.

Now onto one of my new recent purchases, the ‘Rub Rub Rub’ scrub. I don’t know why it has taken me this long to try this scrub because it is just incredible. My skin always feels so luxurious after exfoliating with this; it makes my skin feel extremely soft and revived due to the sea-salt in it. This scrub smells so refreshing with mimosa blossom scent, and I was reading up on it and it also refreshes you because it contains lemon juice (also because it is bright blue)! You can also use a small amount of this as a shower gel.

I have also been using ‘Grease Lightning’ a lot recently, and I have fallen $RWZNJ33back in love with it. I think this is an amazing product because it not onlyworks, but it shows results so fast and this is because it has tea tree in it which works wonders on annoying spots. However, this product works so much better for spots which are under the skin, but does works for spots you were not able to prevent. I highly recommend this product to anyone looking for something like this.

$RKQY4Y5Now onto a classic ‘Space Girl’, this bath bomb smells so fresh and girly, just like sweets! I always look forward to using this bath bomb because it contains popping candy and turns your bath in some sort of exploding faraway galaxy. It really does make your whole bathroom smell amazing as well as making my skin feel really silky and smooth. Because it has grapefruit oil in it, it’s so refreshing and uplifts the mood, whilst clarifying and toning the skin.

Now for one of my all time favourtie bath bombs ‘Dragons Egg’. This bath bomb is amazing, it smells stunning, just like sherbert but it has a under lying smell of flowers which is such a classic smell. Yet it still surprises me when I drop it into the water and it explodes with different colours which always makes me feel so fresh and invigorated and you must try it!

Another all-time favourite of mine, is the ‘Honey I Washed the Kids’ soap, $RDLV9K6I love the caramel scent of this soap it always lifts my mood yet seems to relax me at the same time. After using this soap my skin feels so soft and clean. This soap also contains wild orange and bergamot oils which have the soothing properties of honey and aloe vera gel, which works wonders on my skin especially in the winter when the weather is more drying.

 

$RZP0541Finally for something completely out of my normal comfort zone, it is the ‘Cinders’ bath bomb. I never thought that I would, but I love the slightly spicy scent, it made me feel so warm and cosy and I will definitely try it again. It is the perfect Christmas scent for people who might not like the sweeter scents. It also really put me into the Christmas mood.

My Relaxing Night in Routine ♡

Hey Everyone,

I am the person that throughout the week I cannot wait to just sit down and relax. So every now and then I love to just relax, pamper myself and do nothing. That is why today I thought I would share with you my night time routine.

The very first thing I will do is either make myself a big cup of tea or hot chocolate (and of course with some whipped cream on top), then I will take it upstairs and run a bath. Whilst the bath is running I will light some candles just to relax myself even more and add to the mood, and once the bath is ready and being Lush obsessed I add a bath bomb, my favourite is the ‘Butterball’ because it makes my skin feel so soft and luxurious. I will also add part of a bubble bar and for this I like to use an array of options but I tend to stick with ‘Candy Mountain’.

Then when everything is done i will get into the bath and even just relax or I will go on my phone, check social media and watch some Youtube or Netfilx. After about half an hour of that I will use a body scrub- I always gravitate towards the soap and glory ‘The Scrub of your Life’ or the ‘Rub Rub Rub’ scrub from Lush to make my skin feel even more luxurious. Once I have finished I will just use some shower gel, for this I have no preference whatsoever but last time I used ‘Snow Fairy’ because it was Christmas Eve and  I wanted to get all excited for Christmas and this scent always does.

Realising, that I have spent way to long in the bath I will get out and get dressed into my cosiest pyjamas. Feeling all warm and cosy I will cleanse my skin with my Garnier Micellar Water and apply my go to Simple replenishing moisturizer. After cleansing my skin, I will make myself another hot drink and snuggle into bed with my laptop and phone and watch either a few episodes my current show on netflix (right now I am on Season 5 of Gossip Girl) or a movie (comment down below if you want me to do a my top movies post). When I am feeling ready to go to sleep I will pick up the book I am currently reading, (which currently is ‘The Red Queen’ by Victoria Aveyard) and read for a little bit, and then finally go to bed

So I hope you all enjoy this post and are inspired to treat yourself and have a relaxing night in.

Happy New Year! ♡

Happy New Year

Hey Everyone,

Happy New Year! I cannot believe that it’s 2016 already, and as it is now the New Year I would share with you my New Years resolutions.

2015 has been a tough year for me and my family and we are all looking forward to a fresh start, however this year has shown me that I get through anything (with the support of my friends). So I am looking forward for the fresh start, but this year has been amazing and has given me so many amazing memories! And I want 2016 to be even better, so here aresome of my New Years resolutions:

 1.) Live life with less worries and do what makes me happy. I have chosen to go with this resolution because I know that I worry too much about what people will think of me, how I act and dress and I know that this needs to come to an end, and do what makes me happy and what will make me a happier person and in general a better person.

2.) Get fit and be healthier. This one needs no explanation, I am always looking to improve my fitness and eat different healthier food and I always feel better when I do.

3.) Take more pictures and appreciate each moment more. I feel that I have this resolution every year, but I think that this is a really important resolution and that everyone should try it.

4.) Continue this blog for as long as possible and do not give up no matter what people say about it, or who finds it.

So what are your New Years resolutions? Tell me in the comments below, best wishes for the year ahead and I hope you all have an amazing 2016!

A Fresh Start ♡

Hey Everyone,

This is my new blog. I have already said this once, but it didn’t turn out how I planned. I began writing a blog this time last year, but all my friends found out and I gave up…

I was to afraid to continue writing because of what other people will think of me (which should not stop you doing anything), and I now realise now that this will boost my confidence on so many levels and perhaps I could inspire you all to increase your confidence and achieve your goals – and new years resolutions because it is that time of year again!

Throughout my life I have always loved reading and writing ( I actually started to write a book when I was younger and is on my old computer), but now I’m getting older I realise that I should find ways to share my love for the things I do and want to do. So what I hope to achieve with this blog is that I may become a successful blogger and hopefully move into YouTube as well.

But I have been inspired and be given the confidence by Zoe Sugg’s books and have realised that this is a place where I can share with you my thoughts and not care about getting judged or being afraid. The book has also shown me not to be worried and focus on the negatives of blogging and putting yourself online, but that are so many more positives, which links to one of my new years resolutions and something that will just improve my life and that is to live life with less worries and do what makes me happy.

I have zero clue what I will write about, but they will probably be girly topics such as beauty or fashion (which all the things I love), but I would also like to write about baking and my favourite recipes. So I hope you all enjoy this blog and enjoy reading it as much as I enjoy writing it!
