Hey hey!!! *WAVES*… Hope you have all been VERY WELL and had a lovely start to the week! I know mine has been VERY busy as usual.. AND I have some VERY exciting things happening soon!… I will have a MASSIVE catch up with you all in my next post… I am just SO excited for the next few posts guys! Make sure to stay tuned.. I have a DIY post which I CANNOT wait to put up.. AND my first giveaway on my blog!! All coming VERY soon lovelies.. woop!

So….. guess what this post is all about guys…. LUSH LUSH LUSH!β™₯

Now… Lets get onto this post ey? I don’t think I know a SINGLE blogger who doesn’t LOVE Lush products… probably because:

  • They are SO Instagrammable
  • They make amazing props
  • A bath without Lush products cannot even be classed as a bath
  • They make your room smell YUMMY
  • Your skin always feels AMAZING after using Lush products
  • ALL the products are natural and eco-friendly!

So… when the AMAZING Hannah at Lush offered to send me some products* from their Spring range.. I literally COULD NOT BE MORE EXCITED! I have been the biggest Lush fan for SO many years… the bubble bars/bath bombs are an ESSENTIAL for a pamper night for me.. and as I am sure you know, Movis soap has been my go to face soap for years! I was SO giddy when I got a bright pink and yellow box in the post.. the postman even complimented the scent of the box hehe!

Lush are absolutely AMAZING at releasing new products at different times of the year.. I am so sure EVERYONE knows about their amazing Christmas range… and they do exactly the same thing for Spring/Easter time… YAY!! It is SO worth checking out your local Lush store to see the YUMMY SMELLING new products they have.

Right angels.. if you want a sneak peek of Lush’s spring range*.. have a look below!!β™₯

HOW PRETTY DOES IT ALL LOOK!! Like I mentioned… Lush products honestly take the BEST pictures πŸ˜€

Rose BombshellΒ – Bath Bombβ™₯

SAM_4013

Ahhh I LOVE this bath bomb so much.. the scent is SO SO YUMMY.. If you like sweet, floral scents, you will absolutely LOVE this so much! I also love that it has real rose petals in it.. this is SUCH an adorable touch! I know that this will make my bath a GORGEOUS pinky colour… it is definitely an essential in every Lushie’s spring collection! I think this bath bomb and the Rose Jam Bubbleroon will be PERFECT for spring time baths!

Bunch of CarrotsΒ – Reusable Bubble Barβ™₯

SAM_4016

Ahhhh these carrots are SO cute.. I cannot even get over how adorable they are! I love the fact that there are 3 separate carrots, meaning you get SO much use out of this bubble bar. The carrots have a lovely sweet, citrus scent.. and are all SUCH bright colours so you can use them all together or one at a time! I am the type of girl that HAS to have an INSANE amount of bubbles in her bath.. and I am sure we all know how AMAZING Lush bubble bars are!

Flowering Tea – Bubble Barβ™₯

SAM_4020

SAM_4021

The idea behind this bubble bar is GENIUS…I personally think it was MADE for us Yorkshire girlies… as Lush knows how much we love our cuppas ey? You literally just put this teabag bubble bar under running water and it makes bubbles YAY! I think this Lush product has the most RELAXING scent out of the whole bunch! I literally cannot WAIT to use this.. as I know it will make me feel as calm as I do when I have a cuppa! It has a lovely floral scent… AND I know it has some petals in the middle.. which would be SUCH an adorable surprise!

Bouncy Bunny – Shower Jellyβ™₯

SAM_4030

I think this is my FAVOURITE product… guys.. IT IS A BUNNY!!! A SHOWER JELLY IN THE SHAPE OF A BUNNY! If that doesn’t get you in the mood for spring and make you smile.. I have NO idea what will! I absolutely LOVE the scent of this too.. it smells like chocolate oranges, YUMMY! I love shower jellies SO much.. they are so much fun to use in the shower.. and they are also cooling on the skin… Lush actually suggest that you can keep the shower jelly in the fridge and then use it… how AMAZING would that be in the summer?

Somewhere Over The Rainbow – Soapβ™₯

Now.. soaps from Lush are something that I absolutely LOVE.. my FAVES being Honey I washed the kids, Rockstar and Yog Nog (Christmas limited edition!).. so seeing a soap in my box was exciting!! I think the scent of this is quite subtle and not as strong as other soaps by Lush – it has quite a fresh, citrussy scent. Nonetheless.. the colours are absolutely GORGEOUS and it is going to look SO beautiful displayed in my shower! Not to mention it is going to get me SO excited for Spring time! All Lush soaps have so many essential oils so make your skin feel amazing after use.. and I know this will be exactly the same! It is SUCH a shame about the scent.. I think I was expecting more of a citrussy/orange scent and for it to be a lot stronger! Still… it will make my skin feel fab so YAY!

SAM_4032

Ahhhhh and there we have it.. the end of my Lush Spring product overview… I love the fact that most of the products I received were floral scented.. this is so perfect for Spring.. and a nice change to all the sweet/fruity scents I normally am driven towards (The Comforter.. I am talking about you!). I have discovered SO many more amazing products WOOHOO… it can be quite overwhelming when you go into a Lush store.. so I hope this post helps you in having an idea of what you want before going! This is another reason that I Β LOVE Lush posts.. they recommend the BEST products for you to try!

I would LOVE to know what your favourite products from Lush are ..and also if you have tried anything from this post! I will forever be a Lushie.. so the fact that they release new products every few months is AMAZING! There is ALWAYS SOMETHING NEW!

So angels.. that is my post for today.. I really hope you enjoyed this…. COME ON darlings.. tell me someone who doesn’t like a Lush post! I cannot wait to see you in my next one!

Β Lots of Love,

January Favouritesβ™₯

Hi darlings!!β™₯

Happy SATURDAY!! I cannot EVEN TELL YOU how excited I am that it is the weekend! I have felt SO tired this whole week.. and just wanted a few days to relax and do NOTHING.. (well … besides blogging :P). I went to bed SO early yesterday (for me anyway).. and woke up this morning feeling SO MUCH BETTER!! I had nothing planned for today .. so I just did some laundry, cleaned my car.. and now I AM BLOGGING WOOP! ALSO … we have had quite a bit of snow where I am! You guys know how much I LOVE winter.. but I really want it to be spring ASAP!

So loves…my week has consisted of working.. and also ATTENDING MY FIRST EVER BLOGGING EVENT! I was invited to the Neal’s Yard store in Leeds Victoria Quarter (the VERY FANCY shopping side of Leeds)… and I cannot even tell you how excited I was!!! Let me tell you .. as soon as I walked into the store.. it smelt ABSOLUTELY DIVINE (I found that this was thanks to the steam diffuser.. as the girl there explained to me .. I am SO sorry I never got her name!!). Anyway … It was such a lovely experience for my first event as there were not many bloggers there, so I didn’t feel overwhelmed. Sunayah (the girl that invited me) was SO friendly and really knew her stuff! I had a browse of the store, a chat with the bloggers, AND A FABULOUS HAND MASSAGE AFTER! The girls then gifted us with a goody bag containing lots of organic goodies.. AND a sample of their white tea mask (which I have tried and absolutely LOVED!).

Let me give you a little bit of information on Neal’s Yard products – they specialize in completely natural, organic skincare products and have a range of products for every single skin type out there! They also have a range of supplements AND herbal remedies… as well as a special range of items for mummy and baby!! I never really looked much into organic products before, but after having a good look around the Neal’s Yard store, I have a few items I desperately want to pick up, includingΒ THIS orange facial wash, the full size version of the White Tea mask, as well as the Honey and Orange scrub!!

So angels… I would HIGHLY recommend checking Neal’s Yard out … they are definitely a more luxury brand, but if you are looking to invest a little more into your skin (like me!!), then you will LOVE THEM!!

Check their site out HEREβ™₯

Anyways …. lets get on with this post!! First things first.. CAN YOU BELIEVE IT IS THE END OF JANUARY! I don’t think my brain can quite register that it is February next week. I hope you have all had an amazing month though darlings?

Lets see what I have been loving this month ey?

January Faves.jpg

Lushβ™₯

Ohhh what a surprise.. it’s Lush! I think Lush is a favourite of mine every month to be fair .. I am yet to buy anything from their Valentines range.. but it is definitely high on my list!! The bath bomb above is The Experimenter, and it is a FAVE of mine as I just ADORE looking at it, and it makes my room smell AMAZING (JUST LOOK AT ALL THE COLOURS!!).. It definitely would cheer me up when the weather was dull outside… OK HOW SAD DO I SOUND THAT A BATH BOMB MAKES ME HAPPY?!

Nivea Lip Butter in Macadamia & Vanillaβ™₯

This little angel of a product is what has stopped me from having chapped lips in January .. BECAUSE NOBODY WANTS THAT RIGHT GIRLIES? This has definitely been my go to lip product.. I have stopped using Vaseline as it is SO much greasier (ew I hate that word!) than the Nivea lip balm! I absolutely LOVE the scent of this one too!!!

Make Up Revolution’s Highlighter in Golden Lightsβ™₯

OH MY WORD LOVELIES… This highlighter is just SO GORGEOUS. I have been such a huge lover of MUR’s products.. and as soon as I saw the highlighter.. I knew I HAD TO HAVE IT. Not to mention… its 3 POUNDS! It gives your cheeks the most gorgeous sheen EVER!! I recommend it highly for those who are just starting to use highlighter.. it is SO easy to use (I am still a newbie and cannot get enough of it!!).

My Diaryβ™₯

This diary from Paperchase has been an absolute LIFE SAVER this month .. it has helped keep me organized AND is the perfect size for my handbag!! My lovely bloggers… if you don’t already, GET YOURSELF A DIARY NOW!!

SAM_3378.JPG

Rimmel’s Wake Me Up Concealerβ™₯

THIS baby has helped me look SO awake in the mornings this month! I cannot believe I have gone without it for SO long… it is just SO easy to apply, lasts all day, and is SUPER cheap. You can actually see my full review HERE!

Maybelline Super Stay 24H Setting Sprayβ™₯

THIS. Oh my… it has been the BEST product I have used this whole month. I am such a massive lover of setting sprays … and this Maybelline one is SO AMAZING. Although my Estee Lauder foundation has fabulousΒ staying power.. I still have an oily T-Zone when I come home :(. Since I have been using this setting spray.. I have noticed that my makeup looks ALMOST as good as when I left in the morning (let’s be honest, I have my make-up on from 7AM to 6PM – NO product will keep it looking EXACTLY the same for that long!). This product has become a MUST for me every morning.. it definitely has helped my make up stay put AS MUCH AS POSSIBLE.. I don’t have the awful shininess I used to get! My make up also just feels “in place”, and not tacky, if that makes sense?? Quick Tip – I have read quite a few reviews from people saying this left white spots over their face.. I have NEVER experienced this .. I give it a good shake before I put it on.. maybe this has helped?

Pom Pom Key-ring from LYDC*β™₯

I ADORE this pom pom … whichever bag I am using for the day .. I ALWAYS swap my little pom pom key-ring onto it! My bags feel BARE without it! It is SUCH a adorable accessory to have!!

SAM_3389

Doll White Teeth Whitening Strips*β™₯

I was lucky enough to receive these from Doll White.. and can honestly say THEY ARE AMAZING!! Having white teeth is SO important to me.. so when I received these I was SO excited to try them!! I have almost used them for the full seven days .. and have noticed a definite difference in my teeth! I also LOVE the fact that they are peroxide free.. so I didn’t notice that awful, sensitive feeling in my teeth after using them! They also left my mouth feeling so minty afterwards (YAY!!). I highly recommend them lovelies.. and know these will definitely be my choice of whitening strips in future!

LYDC Iridescent Purse*β™₯

I have had SO many compliments from people when I pull this little purse out.. and I can see why! It is the perfect size to fit in all my bags, and has become my little life saver (as I now store all my everyday make-up essentials/girly products in there!!).

MAC’s Creme Cupβ™₯

I recently re-discovered this lipstick in my collection – I know I will have to put my dark lipsticks away soon *cries* (Ok.. I probably will STILL wear dark lipsticks ha!.. but I think lighter colours are suitable for the coming spring months!). I forgot how much I LOVE Mac lipsticks .. Creme Cup is a gorgeous, pinky nude colour, and is also a creamsheen formula. I have LOVED it this month.. and also know I will wear it SO much in the next few months!

SAM_3392.JPG

Magnitone BareFaced Face Brush*β™₯

I had to feature this in my January favourites.. I may have only been using it for a week.. but OH MY GOSH GUYS.. I have noticed SUCH a difference straight away! It is SO easy and quick to use, makes me skin feel SO soft AND polished. No joke loves.. I literally feel like I have had a facial every time I use it. In fact.. I love it THAT MUCH .. I will be doing a WHOLE post on it (Yayy!!!)… so make sure you stay tuned for that lovelies!!

Magnitone Bix

SAM_3441

WOW.. Now that was A LOT of favourites this month!! It has definitely been a BUSY month.. both blogging wise and in my life! I got my marriage registered, went to my first blogger event, worked with some amazing brands/people…. I honestly CANNOT wait for February. I am actually going to ANOTHER blogging event in February .. this one is in LONDON (eeeeeek!!!).. I am LITERALLY SO EXCITED! I also have some time off work.. so am excited for that!!Β 

Right loves… hope you have a fabulous Saturday evening… I think I am just having a chilled one at home, catching up on blogs and emails (as you do :P). Are you getting up to anything fun? Let me know how your week has been!Β I will see you in my next post loves!

LOTS OF LOVE AND HUGS TO YOU ALL!
