♥Blogger Easter Essentials♥

Hiya lovelies!♥

IT IS THE LONG EASTER WEEKEND WOOP! Now… I would be EVEN more excited for this if I had not already been off for the whole week (haha!). Do you have any plans for the long weekend? All I know is that the weather is going to be poopy where I am (grr!).. So we will just have to see how the weekend pans out! ALSO… YES to the clocks changing… this means MORE DAYLIGHT WOOP! Which for us bloggers is THE DREAM. However.. for the lazy people (i.e. me).. it means we lose an hour in bed (no no no!).

Anyways darlings… I know you have probably seen SO many Easter themed posts.. SO I wanted to mix it up slightly…. so I decided to post what MY EASTER ESSENTIALS ARE! Now.. by this I mean little things that I feel EVERYBODY associates with Easter time!! This includes Easter treats & beauty bits too! So angels.. let’s have a quick look!!!!

Cornflake Nests♥

SAM_4246

I think almost every single person must have made these AT LEAST ONCE!! They are literally the EASIEST thing to make and look SO SO CUTE!! How nostalgic do these make you feel?! They would ALWAYS be in every baking fair/sale at school AND I am sure you and your mum/older siblings would always make them around Easter time!

All you need for these:

  • 200g Cornflakes
  • 75g Butter
  • 200g Milk Chocolate
  • 4 tbsp Golden Syrup
  • Mini Eggs

Method:

Melt all the ingredients. Mix in with the cornflakes and put into cupcake cases. Top with 2 (or more!) mini eggs. Leave to set.. and enjoy!!

Bright/Pastel Nails♥

There is just something ABOUT pastels that just MEANS Spring time is near!!! I absolutely LOVE this pastel pink colour from Barry M for spring/Easter inspired nails! Also.. nothing like a pop of orange to show you are well and truly ready for the warmer months! This beautiful colour is by Ciate London Olivia Palermo range in the colour “My Haute Vacation Coral” It would look SO beautiful on your toes too! So.. if you are lucky enough to get some sun on the Bank Holiday… pull out your sandals from the back of your wardrobe, give yourself a well deserved (and needed!) pedicure.. and rock bright nails! Yay!!

Lush Easter Products♥

SAM_4255SAM_4253

I have been so so impressed with the Lush Easter range this year.. HOW ADORABLE ARE THE BUNCH OF CARROTS!!!! I was lucky enough to be invited to a Lush event (full post will be coming soon!).. and just looking at the range they have.. I LOVED EVERY SINGLE THING!!! I have already mentioned how much I LOVE the Bouncy Bunny shower jelly too…. IT IS THE BEST!!!

All Types Of Eggs♥

SAM_4265

Right guys.. the two types of eggs I am talking about are: Chocolate Eggs and Lush Bath Bomb Eggs. Firstly… it would not even be Easter time if you didn’t demolish at least 1 bag of mini eggs (all by yourself may I add – no sharing required). AND… all of you are allowed to have ONE GIANT EASTER EGG!  ALSO… for all us Lush/bath lovers… you have a LOVELY selection of easter egg bath bombs to choose from! From the GLITTERY AS ANYTHING Golden Egg (which is an absolute BEAUTY.. AND it smells like toffee… YUM)… to the beautiful hot pink Fluffy Egg (which smells JUST like snow fairy!!)… AND the HUGE bath bombs Humpty Dumpty and Which Came First?

Quick Review of Golden Egg♥

I used this beauty in the bath recently.. so thought I would give you a SUPER QUICK REVIEW! Firstly.. if you do not like glittery baths.. you are best avoiding this as it is SO GLITTERY! I LOVE THEM THOUGH.. so was so excited to use this!! Once it is in the bath.. the water is FILLED with glitter.. and it starts to fizz away slowly. The scent is probably my FAVOURITE thing about it.. it smells like toffee/caramel/chocolate.. SO YUMMY!! Once the Golden Egg has finished melting.. you are left with the the most glittery, beautiful smelling, silkiest bath water EVER! I DID not want to leave my bath! The scent lasts on your skin for so long after you get out too.. which is FAB! I also did not need to moisturize after.. which is always a plus!

Cute Bunny Props♥

SAM_4247

Guys.. HOW CUTE are these little bunnies? As soon as I saw them.. I knew I HAD TO HAVE THEM!! They are going to make SUCH cute props for my Spring inspired posts.. AND just add a cute touch to your room… these will be dotted around my makeup storage area too!!

So lovelies… I really hope you liked this post!! I am SO excited for Spring time! If you have done any spring time inspired posts.. let me know .. I would LOVE to check them out!!! I REALLY hope you all enjoy the long weekend… and also the extra daytime hours we get!!! I also am working on something VERY exciting which I will reveal in my next post.. I just want to make sure everything is done beforehand!! So stay tuned for that lovelies!!

I will see you in my next post loves!

Lots of Love,

Spring Time – Lush Edition♥

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!♥

SAM_4012

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!!♥

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

Rose Bombshell – Bath Bomb♥

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 Carrots – Reusable Bubble Bar♥

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 Bar♥

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 Jelly♥

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 – Soap♥

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  LOVE Lush posts.. they recommend the BEST products for you to try!

SAM_4038

SAM_4028

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!

 Lots of Love,

Saira
