Little bit of Lush

Ok, so I moved into my flat about 3 months ago, and until now I have only been able to have a shower so had no need for anything bath related.

All that has changed - thank you Landlord, and we now have a working bath. So it called for a little Lush shopping!!!

Everyone always says how nice the Lush girls are, and true to form, the ones in the shop near me were great! As well as that, it was all kitted out, ready for Christmas ( is it just me or is this the best time of of year for shopping!)

I got a couple of things:

Comforter - this is a gorgeous blackcurrant bubble bar - look how much you get! You just break this up and crumble it underneath a running tap and you get loads and loads of bubbles and a pink bath. I loved this, I felt so relaxed after I had a bath with this.

Snow Fairy - As soon as I tried this shower gel, I knew it was good as the OH told me I smelt like bubblegum!
A gorgeous shower gel, that smells divine, and a little bit goes a really long way! A must have, I may go back and stock up as it is only available at Christmas!

Finally, I got a Boog - a really interesting bath bomb. The Boog is based on a Swedish christmas tradition, where every year, a snowmans head is filled with fireworks and then placed on a Bonfire until all the fireworks have exploded! This is supposed to do just that it the bath, explode into lots of colours! You can see all of the different colour bombs that are inside it! I can't wait to try it!

I can't wait to re-visit Lush, and try out even more of their products - are their any that I really need?

Random Sunday Haul

In classic work avoidance mode, and without the OH to keep me on the straight and narrow, I headed into town, not really looking for anything, and I left with 4 bags :S
I got a real mix of stuff that was obviously all needed - I just needed another bottle of nail polish and another eye liner and another mascara!!!

So, just a quick haul!

Boots - got to love the 3 for 2 offer!
I've needed a new mascara for a while, and saw the Rimmel Volume Flash, Max Bold Curves Mascara. I thought I would try it out and see what it was like. I also tried the 17 Starry Eyes Glitter liner in moonrock - a gorgeous purple sparkle!

I'm not overly keen on the mascara - I expected it to give me bolder lashes and it wasn't as thick as I liked, however I think it will be ok for work. The liner is gorgeous (you can just see it) I love the sparkle, and I wore it all day at school and people commented on it!

The two bottles of polish I got are Models Own in Grace Green, and Seche Vite top coat. I've only just started to use the top coat, so will report back on that soon, however I have tested out the Grace Green and I love it!
Its a real greyish green, in certain lights it looks more grey, in others the base seems almost blue. It applied really well, this was two coats in about 2 minutes so dried really quickly with no flaws!

I think this is going to be a fun colour to play with - will let you know what else I come up with, and I will report back on the Seche Vite top coat as soon as!

A touch of sparkle!

As its getting darker outside, I find myself turning more towards the darker shades of nail polish within my collection, however the up keep of dark nails is intense, and I wanted to to brighten up my life a little without reaching for the glitter!!

Step up - Models Own in Champagne! 

It comes out darker in the picture, but two coats of this is enough and I love it - it feels like a little touch of Xmas before the main even actually kicks off!

I can't seem to find this on the Models Own website for whatever reason, but I think there will be a lot of dupes coming up - need to reassess me nail polish collection to see if I have any! 

Great for those early Xmas celebrations, or just to brighten up these early winter days!!!!
