Mini Lush Haul

Do you guys remember the Valentine’s Day inspired Lush Haul that I posted just before Valentine’s? Well I’ve exercised inhuman self restraint, and actually haven’t been into Lush since then. I know, that’s insane, what the heck?

Well recently I decided that it had been too long since I’d been into Lush and shared with you guys what I’d bought, so that’s what I’m doing today!

I didn’t pick up very much because I do have a lot of bath products around at the moment, so I didn’t want to go overboard.IMG_2431Ceridwens Cauldron Bath Melt | After briefly talking to the assistant in Lush, we’d established that I like baths to be relaxing and moisturising, and I wanted to try out some products that had been newly introduced since my last visit. The assistant recommended this bath melt to me because it consists mainly of oats and cocoa butter, it’s perfect for sensitive skin. This bath melt is also reusable because it’s in a cloth bag, so you can just bob it around the top of your bath, lightly infusing it with the oats and cocoa butter, and use it directly onto your skin to lightly exfoliate and moisturise, all in one go!

Twilight Bath Bomb | Even the name of this bath bomb inspires the idea of relaxation and sleep. And that’s the entire purpose of this product. The fragrance itself is another element that has been designed to help you sleep, as lavender is a soothing and relaxing fragrance, used in aromatherapy to treat insomnia and aid restful sleep. I decided to pick this one up because, although it’s not new, I haven’t used it before, so I thought I’d try it out! I’m a big fan of a lavender scent, because I do find it to be insanely relaxing, and a perfect scent for just before bed.IMG_2435Sakura Bath Bomb | It’s not secret that I love Japan and cherry blossoms, to this bat bomb was another no brainer for me to pick up. At first I thought that this bath bomb was just really pretty, but then when I smelt it, I realised that the scent was unusually uplifting and strong. Lush describes it as “Calming mimosa and jasmine oils are complemented by lemon oil and orange flower to bring to mind the smell of this colourful season.” and I think that perfectly embodies how this bath bomb smells, it’s incredibly fresh and uplifting, perfect for a bath first thing in the morning.

Yoga Bomb Bath Bomb | This is another bath bomb that I hadn’t tried before, but had been tempted by. The sales assistant told me that this bath bomb is perfect for detoxing and after working out, hence the name. And as this bath bomb is so usually overlooked, I’m going to share a little secret with you. It isn’t just an orange bath bomb. Once it begins fizzing, it actually turns your bath into an array of orange, turquoise and purple shades, so give it a go!


That’s everything I picked up in Lush, I know, you can applaud at how much self restraint I showed, ha! I hope you enjoyed this post and I convinced you to try out some products that you’ve overlooked or have been meaning to try for a long time.

What is your favourite Lush product of all time?

Valentine’s Day: Lush “Lot’s Of Love” Gift Set

It’s Valentine’s Day in 4 days now, so today I’m showing you guys one of the best Valentine’s Day ultimate hacks; A Lush gift set! It’s perfect if your other half is obsessed with Lush, and it’s perfect if you really don’t know what to get them!IMG_1038In the “Lot’s Of Love” gift set, you get 6 of some of the cutest love-themed products that Lush have to offer, and I’m going to talk you through them all, alongside one bonus product!IMG_1053

Tisty Tosty | This bath bomb is based on a medieval love potion. It contains seven real rosebuds and has a gorgeous scent of geranium, jasmine and rose, said to be toning and balancing, and floral and seductive. It also makes for a really pretty and relaxing bath.

Oral Pleasure | Now this product is not included in the “Lot’s Of Love” gift set, but fortunately this was gifted to me, and I had never heard of it before so I thought I’d share it with you guys! In this pot you have ‘toothy tabs’, which can be used as a toothpaste substitute. I know it seems confusing, but when used properly it is like their shampoo bars, that foams up incredibly. All you have to do is chew this tablet and then start brushing your teeth! It creates a white foam, so don’t let the colour (or name!) put you off!IMG_1055Rose Jam | One of my favourite products from Lush, a bubbleroon! This products smells so relaxing, and the fact that it also contains rose oil means that it’s balancing, softening and moisturising for the skin. I also really love that it can be used more than once as you can break it in half. That’s twice the amount of relaxation, in one product!

A French Kiss | I had always been drawn to this bubble bar every time I’ve been in Lush, but I’ve never actually picked it up, so I was so excited when I saw that it was included in this gift set! It smells so lovely, and I really love the way Lush describes it, “Crumble under running water for a paradisaical bath full of the lavender and rosemary scents of Southern France.” Definitely one of the most romantic products, perfect for this time of year!IMG_1058Lover Lamp | Do you want a romantic bath that smells like chocolate orange, moisturises your skin with the most delicate cocoa butter, and leaves tiny red hearts floating a top a billion bubbles? Look no further; this is the bath bomb for you. It’s perfect for a girly night in, or first thing in the morning to keep your skin super soft and smelling gorgeous all day long.

Unicorn Horn | I don’t really need to go in to much detail with this product do I? We’ve all seen it, heard of it or tried it. This bath bomb has been proven to increase serotonin levels (they make you feel happy and cheery!), and it’s just super cute. And if Lush opens their description for this product with “Unicorns are probably real. But, even if they’re not (don’t worry they definitely are) you won’t mind!” you know this bubble bar is a must buy.

Sex Bomb | This bath bomb is geared towards soothing your worries, and relieving anxiety. It’s main ingredient is Jasmine, which obviously is super relaxing, but it also said to be an ancient aphrodisiac, so again, it’s perfect for Valentine’s Day!


That’s it for the “Lot’s Of Love” gift set from Lush, perfect for if you still haven’t quite figured out what you want to give to that special someone this Sunday!

Please share this post if you enjoyed it, and help out your friends who might not know what to get for Valentine’s yet!

What is your favourite love-themed product from Lush?

2015 Highlights

Hello everyone! It’s the start of a new year, so that of course means I’m going to talk about my favourites from the last year!

I’ve included random favourites as well as beauty favourites, but I have limited myself, because if I was going to talk about everything I loved from this past year, we’d be here until Halloween.

So here we go with my 2015 (almagamated) favourites!IMG_0496BEAUTY

Urban Decay’s Naked 3 Palette | Yes, as this past year was the year I started my blog, I thus opened my eyes to the world of Urban Decay, and naturally, the famous Naked 3. I am so glad I invested in this palette because it has everything you could need in a palette, whether you’re new to makeup, or much more confident in it. These rose-gold hues really do live up to the hype, and the lasting power (when used in conjunction with Urban Decay’s primer) is unreal.

Estée Lauder All Over Face Compact | This compact is another great all-occasions-product. The bronzer is my favourite bronzer to use for contouriing and adding some dimension and colour to a base, and the variations of blusher colour are great to adapt to different looks.

Maybelline’s Lash Sensational Mascara | I tried this mascara out reasonably early in the year, and I haven’t bought another one since. It creates a false-lash look, without the mess/hassle of applying falsies!

Collection’s 24 Hour Extreme Felt Liner | As if I haven’t already spoken enough about this eyeliner. It’s my lifetime favourite, not just from 2015. You can hear plenty more about it HERE, HERE and HERE.

Rimmel Lipstick in #700 ‘Naughty Nude’ | I’ve always been after a nude colour to suit my skin tone, and holy heck have Rimmel found it. So if you are also looking for the perfect nude, and we have similar colouring, definitely check out the ‘Only 1’ range.

Maybelline Baby Lips | The best chapstick on the market. I also really like that they are available in different colours, so you can have a slight tint to your lips without having to use a lipstick as well as a chapstick.

Makeup Revolution Highlighter in ‘Pink Lights’ | This is one of the prettiest and most affordable drugstore highlighters. It looks beautiful, and you only need a light swipe of it for it to really shine.

IMG_0498TREATS

Dead Sea Mud Masks | I picked these up one day because they are really cheap, and you get 2 masks in a pack, so I thought I’d try them out. In fact, you can generously get 4 masks out of these 2 packs, so it’s even better value for money! These masks are perfect for a pamper night while you’re in the bath, or just a quick mask before bed. They’re very refreshing and cooling, so also suitable for all skin types.

Lush’s ‘Shoot For The Stars’ Bath Bomb | Again, perfect for a pamper night. I think my love for the sea means I have a deeper love for blue bath bombs, because it turns your bath into a gorgeous clear-blue sea colour. An the added sparkle just makes the whole thing a dream, come on.

Bluetooth Speaker | These speakers are amazing. I know they’re nothing new, but I am now old enough to be fascinated by the fact that the music is being transported through the air from my phone/laptop to this speaker. It’s also surprisingly loud in comparison to it’s size!

Nivea Sensitive Day Moisturiser | Once I’d realised the error of my ways with using Nivea’s ordinary moisturiser in my regular skincare routine (clogged pores, greasiness, makeup sliding!) I wanted to find a much lighter and gentler moisturiser to use daily. And this moisturiser is the ideal one! It’s light enough to be used regularly, and not clog your pores.

IMG_0500LIFE

Sparkly Shoes | 2015 was the year I widened my shoe-horizon and discovered a world outside of dolly shoes and heels, and by far, these sparkly flats are my new favourite type of shoes. They are insanely comfortable, and look fabulous, let’s not deny that.

Makeup Brushes | What with starting my blog, I saw the taboo of using the makeup sponges that come with almost every eyeshadow palette, and discovered the world of makeup brushes. This set came with 15 brushes, everything you’d need to start out with makeup, from Amazon!IMG_0707Scarf | This scarf is amazing. It keeps you ridiculously warm when you need it, but also doubles as a blanket during lectures. So that’s all very good, and much more than you expect from a scarf, for sure.

Backpack | My little backpack is definitely my favourite bag from 2015. It’s practical and cute. All of the compartments and pockets means that even the contents of my bag are sorted into categories, how exciting!

Space Flask | Again, perfect for when you’ve got 10am lectures and your brain likes to come through at roughly 11am. I really like this design from Paperchase, and it’s available in multiple products, I’ve actually got a matching poster because I like to rep space, it’s pretty cool after all.


THAT’S IT! Phew, well done everyone for making it through that, it was certainly a recount of an entire year if ever there was one. Again, I’m going to soppily thank you all for reading this lil site, it means a lot to me. At the end of this month, Organicbynerve is going to be turning 1, and I can’t wait to celebrate that with every one of you!

BLOGMAS Day 7 // Winter & Christmas Lush Haul

Hey guys! As we all know that Lush have brought out their Christmas and Winter collections, featuring many old favourites, and some new exciting products, I thought today I’d take you through some of my favourite Winter and Christmas products from this year! This is the biggest Lush haul I have ever done, so let’s jump right into the products!

Winter & Christmas Lush Haul Winter & Christmas Lush HaulWinter

Big Shampoo | This shampoo will transform your hair. During these colder months, I find that my hair tends to go rather limp, and it becomes very difficult to style. But this sea salt shampoo massages and invigorates your scalp when you use it, causing the root of the hair to lift and have more hold. I absolutely love it.

Big Bang Bubble Bar | With the scent of grapefruit oil, and added avocado butter to nourish and moisturise the skin (not to mention a space theme!) I love everything about this bubble bar. As always, just crumble as much of the product that you desire under running water, and enjoy your bubble bath! 

Shoot For The Stars Bath Bomb | Brace yourselves, but this may just be my favourite Lush product of all time. (I still love you Karma & Rose Jam!) Again, it’s space themed so that’s a major plus for me, but this bath bomb holds within it something that I adore, the night sky. The tagline for this bath bomb is “Paint the night sky” and it really lives up to that, turning your bath into a gorgeous pool of lavender, blues and pinks.

Candy Mountain Bubble Bar | This bubble bar is adorable and comforting, so very often just what we could do with at the end of a very long working week. It’s also quite a safe bet to be a widely popular product, because it’s vanilla scented, so it’s not overly powerful or harsh to smell.

Magic Wand Bubble Bar | This magic wand really is magic. Just swirl it around in your bath, and it’ll create a gorgeous, cotton candy scented pink bubble bath! I’d also recommend these wands because they are incredibly long lasting. If like me, you all too often end up using a bubble bar in one bath, instead of breaking it into two or three baths, these wands really stand the test of time, because you’re not breaking it up, you’re just swirling it around.

Winter & Christmas Lush HaulChristmas

5 Gold Rings Bubble Bar | Just like the wands, I really like this bubble bar because it lasts much longer than an ordinary bubble bar, as it’s already split into five very handy sections. This bubble bar is also vanilla scented, so it’s also a perfect Christmas gift for anyone who loves bubble baths, but might find many Lush products a bit too strong scent-wise.

Peeping Santa Bubble Bar | His eyes are chocolate. Need I say more? Now I know you won’t be eating it, but there’s definitely something so extravagant and fabulous as knowing that you’re bathing in dairy free chocolate and hand-churned Shea butter, this bubble bar is not only extremely Christmassy and adorable, but the very definition of Treat. Yo. Self.

Snow Angel Bath Melt | This product is a little different. As it’s not a bath bomb or a bubble bar, you don’t have to crumble it up or pop it in your bath and watch the fizzing and swirling ensue. No, this is a bath melt, which means it assists in melting away all of your tension and stress, and that’s before you’re even in the bath! This bath melt quite literally floats atop the water, slowly melting and producing the most glistening and glimmering layer of snow on the surface of the water. It also contains cocoa butter, which is incredibly moisturising for the skin, with a scent of marzipan and rose. This bath melt is a Christmas miracle.

Father Christmas Bath Bomb | Once you’ve looked at this bath bomb, you might have pictured what you’d expect from it. Well all I can say is, throw those preconceptions away, because it’s almost 100% guaranteed that you are entirely wrong about it. This peach and white bath bomb, is actually, the deepest, most vibrant green you could ever imagine bathing in. I adore it when Lush surprise us with a bath bomb like this, because it’s like being let in on a little secret. Again, another very sweet candy floss scented bath bomb, this is definitely one of my Christmas favourites.

Luxury Lush Pud Bath Bomb | A magnificent burst of colour in an otherwise very dull and lifeless winter evening. This bath bomb is just what you need to lift your spirits, while relaxing you with a calming lavender scent at the same time. I think this bath bomb would actually make a great gift for a first time Lush user, as it’s fun and bright, but not strong or complicated, just pop it in the bath and you’re a Lush pro!

Magic Of Christmas Wand Bubble Bar | With cinnamon and almond scents, this bubble wand smells like the epitome of Christmas baking. Again, I’d recommend these bubble wands because they are so long lasting, and let’s be honest, super fun to use.


That’s it for my Winter & Christmas Lush Haul, let me know if you’ve got any recommendations of anything I haven’t mentioned in the comments. You can see my previous Lush haul HERE. As always, I have linked all of the products I’ve mentioned to Lush’s site, if you’d like to treat yourself to some of the goodies I have featured!

//YESTERDAYS POST//

September Favourites

It’s the end of another month, so that can only mean another favourites post! I’ve got a lot of new things to talk about this month, along with some good old favourites, so let’s jump right into my September Favourites!qwertyuiopNivea Soft Moisturiser | I’ve dabbled with this moisturiser before, but I very quickly stuck to my Nivea Day & Night moisturisers. So this month I decided to dedicate myself to trying this moisturiser out properly, and I love it. It’s so light and delicate on the skin, but really leaves your face feeling hydrated and unbelievably soft. It’s also one of the rarer moisturisers that smells amazing too.

Azure Woven Facial Mask | As I’ve been having a little bit of skin trouble lately, I’ve been trying a lot of new products out to give my skin a break and a little treat. These facial masks are astounding. They’re super easy to use, but perfect for a girly night in. It’s a cloth-mask, meaning all you do is open it, and place it on your face!

Dead Sea Mineral Mud Mask | As I’ve already said, I’ve been enjoying girly nights in with face masks, and nothing leaves your skin feeling more nourished than a mud mask. These are really affordable and ready to use at any time!

Planet Spa Lavender Pillow Mist | You would not recall a life before trying a lavender pillow mist. I know I certainly don’t. The lavender helps you drift off to sleep naturally, without being too overpowering.

Colour Changing Light Up Heart | I picked this up in Tiger a little while ago, and I’ve loved it ever since. This cute little heart slowly fades through a rainbow of colours, again, perfect for having on while you’re relaxing, perhaps with a face mask and spritz of lavender on your pillows?DSCN2322Collection Lip Liner | I picked up this lip-liner because it’s the corresponding lip-liner to the lipstick that I fell in love with from Collection. As it’s a very deep burgundy colour, I feel that it stays put and looks even more gorgeous when I’ve lined my lips first. It’s also great for using all over your lips if you’d rather have a slight tint of this colour, before fully committing to the depth of the lipstick.

Collection Lipstick in #3 Aubergine Kiss | This lipstick, is gorgeous. I can’t even fully express it to you guys. It’s so perfect for autumn, day to evening wear, I just love it. It’s the deepest burgundy colour you can imagine, has a good staying power for a drugstore lipstick, and it doesn’t break the bank! An autumn must-have for me.

Baby Lips Chapstick | I’ve ranted to you guys about how much I adore Baby Lips chapsticks since I first picked one up earlier this year. I really like the Dr Rescue range because it’s slightly more intense, perfect for the colder weather, and if you regularly suffer with dry lips. But this one in particular is tinted pink, it’s almost like a lipstick!DSCN2324 Lush Creamy Candy Bubble Bar | I know I know. More about Lush’s Creamy Candy Corinne? I can’t help it, this product is perfect for any night, any time of year. As I’ve said before when I’ve talked about it, it smells just like candy, leaves your skin feeling silky and moisturised, and it gives you a bath full of bubbles to enjoy. It doesn’t get much better than that.

Zoella Beauty Candy Cream Body Lotion | I’ve been obsessed with this smell since it first came out. It’s deliciously fruity, with bursting beads and acai berries, this body lotion really gives your skin a treat. Making you feel fresh and delicious.DSCN2327 VO5 Heat Defence Spray | I know I’ve only just spoken about the VO5 hair care range, but my hair has never felt better ever since I tried these products out. The heat defence spray is an ultimate staple for me, and I know I always stress it, but it should be a staple for everyone. If you’re blow drying and styling your hair with heat, you need to be protecting it first. And even after re-bleaching the ends of my hair, it’s silky and soft thanks to these products.

VO5 Frizz Free Creme | This creme is perfect for use in tandem with the heat defence spray, as it moisturises the ends of your hair, leaving them feeling just a soft as after having a trim.DSCN2333Zombuster Game | And finally, this game. It’s as addictive as Flappy Bird, with a similar format; you’re just consumed with a mighty need to keep trying. Just bust the zombies, and avoid the civilians, it really is as (seemingly) easy as that. Let me know if you beat my high score of 100, because I will be jealous and it’ll give me all the more reason to keep playing. This app is free to download on ios and android, with an in-game ad banner.


That’s it for my September favourites, what have you guys been loving this month? I always like to hear about new products to try out!

DIY Lush-Inspired Sugar Lip Scrub

Fotor0906220935Lately I’ve really been looking for a good and affordable lip scrub. But I quickly discovered how quick and easy it is to make one yourself, so I thought I’d share this DIY with you guys! It’s super quick, and you’re almost 100% guaranteed to have all of these ingredients in your house!

DIY Lush Sugar Lip ScrubYou will need:

A small bowl or container to mix in

Olive Oil

Sugar

Honey

Vanilla Essence (Optional)

DSCN2179Start out by covering the bottom of your container or bowl with the olive oil, then obviously the sugar is the exfoliant, so you’ll need to add this next. The honey next, as that just helps all of the ingredients sticking together. Finally the vanilla essence, or any other flavouring of your choice.

You should mix everything together until it is all stuck together, you’ll know you’re done mixing when the scrub is easily transferable in its entirety to another container.

And it’s as simple as that! I think the best thing about this lip scrub is that you can choose to make as much as you want, and for it to taste like whatever you want!

After applying to your lips, I’d recommend using a chapstick or lip butter.

DSCN2186 (2)


And you’re all done! You can thank me for your cushiony soft lips whenever, it’s cool. Let me know if you’d like to see more DIY’s!

New Lush Products | The Summer Collection Reveal

Fotor0817114725new lush products haulRecently Lush have just brought out their summer collection! So, keen to have a look, I grabbed some from the new collection, alongside some of my trusty regular favourites, to talk about for you guys today.new lush products first impressionsFrozen bath bomb lushFrozen Bath Bomb | “Do you want to have a bath bomb? Do you want to splash and play?” This bath bomb, much like the movie it’s based on, is utterly mesmerising. With the uplifting scent of grapefruit oil, combined with the inside packed with silver glitter, when having a bath with this bath bomb; you really will let everything go. (I think this would be a favourite for Evie and Ruby, my cousins!)Intergalactic bath bomb lush Intergalactic Bath Bomb | This bath bomb is very quietly creeping into my favourite bath bomb spot. With it’s name, and a description of “Ever wondered what bathing in deep space would be like? Invite the cosmos into your bathroom with this sexy, interstellar bomb and become the guardian of your own galaxy.” This bath bomb caters to many of my greatest loves. It’s colourful, galaxy-themed and smells like peppermint.rose jam bubble bar lushRose Jam Bubbleroon | Do you want to feel as though you’ve just been moisturised from the heavens and given a bunch of flowers? Then this is the bubbleroon for you. Essentially a bubble bar, but shaped like a macaroon, these bubbleroons are absolutely adorable and pampering. With rose oil and cocoa butter, this bubble bar is a real self-indulgent treat.

Jason and the argan oil shampoo bar lushJason & The Argan Oil Shampoo Bar | I’ve loved this shampoo bar since I was first recommended it by a friend. This product might just solve all of your dry hair problems. Replacing shampoo, it foams up when you’re in the shower, and you simply apply like a regular shampoo. The argan oil (one of my favourite ingredients for anything hair-related) is insanely good for hair that needs a touch of moisture. Although I wouldn’t recommend it for anyone with fine hair as it can tend to weigh it down a little.

creamy candy bubble bar lushCreamy Candy Bubble Bar | Another one of my previous favourites. Unfortunately this one has lost it’s signature flower, but that doesn’t mean it’s lost any of it’s softening powers. With vanilla, cocoa butter and almond oil it really is a treat for your skin. And of course I’m going to mention how it smells like the sweetest candy, don’t worry, I didn’t forget.


So there are some of the new products from Lush’s summer collection, along with some of my trusty favourites! I hope you guys enjoyed this post, let me know if you’re going to try any products from the new www.lush.co.uk range!

May Favourites

mayfaves

Over the past two months I’ve been trying out some new products, and returning to some of my previous favourites, so I’ve gathered them all together to share with you today!DSCN0206Fairy Lights | I’ve been searching for new fairy lights ever since I encountered a bit of a problem with my last ones… (heated up… melted things…) and I’ve been without any for quite a while, so this month after finding these at a very good price, I grabbed them, and can confidently say they are much safer and a perfect addition to my room.
DSCN0205 Rimmel London Scandaleyes Eyeliner | I recently ran out of my trusty Rimmel London Professional Liquid Liner, and when I went shopping for a new one, I thought I’d try out something new, and I absolutely fell in love. I can get along just fine with a liquid liner, but this felt tip makes everything so much quicker. I adore it.

Lush Karma Bubble Bar | I have previously mentioned all of the reasons I love this bubble bar in my Lush Haul, and I have been continuing to repurchase and love it this month. I’m so glad I was enticed by the gorgeous orange colour, because it really is a relaxing and luxurious addition to my bath.

Yankee Candle ‘Soft Cotton’ | This one needs even less explanation. It’s my favourite scent, in a trusty little candle. Perfect to have in any place, in any room.

DSCN0195DSCN0203 Moon Necklace | A few weeks ago, while at the All Things Vintage & Lovely event in Plymouth, I saw this gorgeous necklace at one of the stalls. At first I resisted, but I knew when I revisited the stall that it was meant for me, and was assured that it was “very you”, so I grabbed it before someone else saw it.DSCN0198 Rimmel London ‘Lose Your Lingerie’ #203 | I prefer lighter colours on my nails, so in order to change it up from plain white all of the time, I occasionally go for a very light hint of pink, and this shade is just perfect.

Baby Lips Dr. Rescue | This month I gave into the hype and picked up a Baby Lips lip balm, I admit I just chose a plain one to give it a go, but it turns out a chose one with menthol in it, so it is even better for your lips! I’ve been addicted to it ever since buying it.DSCN0197

Nivea 3 in 1 Micellar Cleansing Water | A little while ago I had a bad reaction to makeup removal wipes, so I’ve had to be extra careful with how I remove my makeup, simply sticking to water and a face wash. But this month I was determined to find something good for my skin that I could use. After finally discovering this product, I cannot sing its praises enough. It’s unscented and contains absolutely no alcohol, so it’s perfect for those of us with sensitive skin. And as it’s 3 in 1, if you don’t have the time or energy in the evening for a full blown skincare routine, this is the perfect product as it removes makeup, cleanses and moisturises – something which no other products do. 

Beyonce Heat | And finally, this month I wanted to change up my perfume, so I went back to my trusty Beyonce ‘Heat’. It always reminds me of summer and you instantly get a Beyonce vibe when you use it, so what more reason do you need to love this scent?!


There are all of the things I’ve been loving these past months, have you rediscovered a product you used to love? Let me know in the comments below!

March Favourites

It’s that time again and I know everyone says it, but I cannot believe how quickly this year is going already. So without further ado, here are some of the things that I have been thoroughly loving this month!


bath and hairspray

Lush’s Dragon’s EggThis is hands down, one of my favourite products that Lush do. It’s one of my favourites on account of many reasons, firstly, just to look at it, you’d assume it looks quite simple and maybe even a bit boring. But when it meets your bath; that’s when the true magic unveils itself. This bath bomb actually turns your bath water gold, and on top of all of that magic, it smells amazing, and if you don’t want to put the whole thing in your bath, you can split it and get two amazing baths out of it!

Radox’s Unwind Bath SoakAs you may be able to tell, I’ve really been enjoying a good bath recently, and nothing makes a bath more relaxing than bubbles. This product is almost always on some kind of deal, so I’d really recommend picking up some and giving it a try. They come in various types of ‘soak’ and you can select whichever one you feel that you’re craving, for example, ‘Muscle Therapy’, ‘Moisture Soak’ and ‘Nourish’. I’ve been loving ‘Unwind’ because it has a really deep, relaxing smell and it turns your bath water into a pure blue. Perfect for at the end of a long day or whenever you’re feeling a bit tense.

Salon Professional’s Extra Hold Hairspray | I have actually been loving this product for months. It does exactly what it says on the tin, providing extra hold for any style that you may choose. It prevents fly aways, and keeps your style in place all day. It’s not sticky, and something that never seems to come into the game of hairspray; it smells amazing. It doesn’t leave you choking on any fumes and it actually leaves your hair smelling amazing.


headphones

Frends Layla HeadphonesI’ve been after these headphones for a couple of months, and this month, I found them on offer by Urban Outfitters, so I grabbed them. I absolutely adore these headphones because they aren’t huge, like most headphones, instead they are really small (perfect for people with small heads and ears such as myself). They have a really beautiful design, and are quite cute and girly, the perfect overhead headphones for me. Frends actually designed these with jewellery in mind, not only keeping the design pretty, while still delivery outstanding quality music, they are small enough to not press down on your ears if you are wearing earrings. They also come with this very handy case that makes them even easier to slip into your bag, and prevents the cables from tangling.

This one is a little bit of fun, because he is really handsome and special. Here is Puss in Boots, entirely hand knitted by grandmother for me! If you, like me, think he’s handsome, let me know in the comments below and I’ll let my grandmother know!

New Look’s Floral SocksSince Spring has sprung, I’ve been slowly fading out all of the dark block colours, and bring in lighter colours and florals. These socks are a perfect in between because they can work at any time of year, but right now they’re perfect for wearing with heels or shoes with cut outs in them, so you can show off the daisies. And on top of all of that, they have an adorable frilled edge.

Oz Botanic’s Major Moisture Deep ConditionerI mentioned this product in my Ombre Hair Care Routine, and it really is amazing. It has revived the ends of my hair, and leaves my hair soft, shiny and manageable! And as I’m sure I mentioned before, it smells good too, unlike most other deep conditioners that are more expensive, they do the trick but they don’t smell as lovely.

Nivea Creme | This moisturiser is such a staple for me, I always have it on me and it really is a miracle in a pot. There are no added colours or scents, so it’s amazing on sensitive skin, and it’s quite thick so it lasts you all day, and you don’t need to apply a lot; in this case, a little really goes a long way. They are also available in handy tiny pots that would fit right in your handbag or make-up bag, perfect for on the go.


Those are some of the things that I’ve been loving this month, let me know what you’ve been loving, whether it’s something you’ve always loved and used or if it’s something that you’ve newly discovered, I’d love to know!
