LUSH Easter Collection Haul!

Hello beautiful people!
Hopefully you all had exciting weekends and Monday isn’t treating you too badly!

The other day I was wandering through the mall and noticed that LUSH has their Easter collection out! Now I know I don’t need to justify the fact that I just absolutely had to pick up some of the cute stuff they have available right now!

First up I grabbed the Fluffy egg bath ballistic ($5.95) because it smells like marshmallows and cotton candy! Super sweet, bright pink and girly!

Next is the immaculate eggception in yellow ($12.95), they have a pink one as well but I preferred the scent of the yellow one; It smells like vanilla and grapefruit, very fresh but also comforting. Since this one is so big, you can crack it in half and get 2 baths out of it, but it also has a secret surprise inside!

I absolutely had to get the bunch of carrots ($12.95) because they look so real! Each one is a bubble bar, so you crumble it under running water and you’ll have yourself an orange bubble bath.
These smell like lemon and bergamot, very fruity and fresh, each one should give you at least one bath, or more if you don’t like a lot of bubbles!

Finally I picked up hoppity poppity ($4.95) which is a little bunny bath bomb that smells very earthy. It has lavender, lime and violet which isn’t something I would typically go for, but I really liked it in the store so I’m eager to give this one a go in the tub!

They had a few more cute products for Easter, but these four were my favourite!
Let me know if you’ve picked up any of the new LUSH collection and what your favourites are!
Until next time loves!

Blogmas day 19! – A cookie decorating party & A bath with santa

Hello beautiful people & happy Friday!
Last night was so much fun, it was so nice to see all my friends and decorate some delicious cookies.
I sort of dropped the ball and got too excited once people started to arrive, that I forget to take pictures, but I did manage to take some of my décor!

There were 6 of us, which was the perfect number to sit and chat and enjoy some food.
A couple of the girls stayed over, which was great because we got to go for breakfast this morning and continue catching up.

Once I got home I opened my advent calendars

Then I proceeded to clean up the mess from last night, which did not take as long as I expected.

Tonight Carmen, my sister Jen and I, are heading over to my sister Kate and her husband Wes’ house for some festive fun. I think we’re going to have some dinner and watch a Christmas movie which I will let you guys know about tomorrow.

As for the rest of the afternoon, I am going to take a nice relaxing bath with my Santa bath bomb from LUSH, and catch up on some YouTube videos.

I hope you all have a wonderful Friday night!
Until tomorrow,

Blogmas day 7! – A lazy Sunday!

Hello beautiful people!
Last night was so much fun, my mom really enjoyed her birthday dinner and the Christmas party Carmen and I went to after was a blast. Lots of games, gifts, food and good people which is my favourite kind of party.

Today has been quite a lazy day because we were up very late, so I got up and had some breakfast and then opened my calendars.

I’m so excited to try out this pale yellow polish, I have nothing like this in my collection and really love pastels for spring and summer!

I decided to have a nice relaxing afternoon, so of course I filled up the tub and threw in my melted snowman bath melt from LUSH. This little guy is part of their holiday collection and smells like gingerbread, it doesn’t make bubbles but it makes the water feel silky and you come out with the softest skin and smelling like a gingerbread man, what’s more festive than that?

Sometimes I take a book with me into the bath, but I was in the mood to watch some Gilmore girls so I took my laptop in and set it on a stool outside the tub, it’s quite an awesome set up if I do say so myself. I also never take a bath without my bath pillow which makes it more comfortable to be in there for a while!

Recently my skin has been breaking out, I don’t know if it’s just due to the change in weather or what but it’s really been bumming me out so, I decided to use my favourite detoxifying face mask to try and help remedy my situation. I’ve raved about the Origins clear improvements charcoal mask a bunch so I won’t go into too much of a ramble, this stuff just pulls impurities out of your skin helping to clear it up and leave it looking radiant and gorgeous, if you haven’t tried it I would suggest giving it a shot!

Sorry this is a short one but as I said today’s a bit of a lazy day. As soon as I’m finished with this I’ll be watching the Christmas movie of the day which is going to be The Grinch (The Jim Carrey version).

Tomorrow’s post is going to be another one with some sweet treats so don’t forget to come back and check that out! (Especially if you love peanut butter)
You guys are the best!
Until tomorrow

Little LUSH haul!

Hello beautiful people!
Sorry it’s been a while since I’ve posted, I’ve just been quite a busy lady!
A small life update for you: I’ve officially completed my contract as a gardener for the season which means I’ll have the winter to relax and enjoy the holidays. I’m also heading to San Antonio Texas with my mom next Sunday (the 19th of October) for a week for a little mother daughter get away, which I am super pumped about! If you’re from Texas or know any good places we should check out please feel free to leave me a comment – I’d love to hear your recommendations!

Since the weather is really starting to get cold here in Toronto I’ve been taking a lot of baths! This of course warranted a trip to LUSH, since I ran out of all my other goodies, and I wanted to pick up some of my favourites and some things I’ve never tried before.

The first thing I had to pick up was my all-time favourite bath bomb called butterball ($4.95). This is not an exceptional bath bomb in terms of colour or excitement but it honestly leaves your skin feeling so soft and nourished as it’s enriched with cocoa butter. It has a very relaxing and soft smell with a tiny hint of vanilla and flowers, I love popping this in the bath when I’ve had a really long day and just want to relax and read a book for half an hour or so, if you’ve never tried this you absolutely should because your skin will thank you especially going into winter!

I also picked up two bath bombs I’d never tried before the first one is called honey bee ($6.45) which is quite a large bath bomb and its yellow and brown so I’m curious to see what the bath water is going to look like! This smells quite sweet with a little hint of honey. It’s supposed to be soothing and cleansing which will be nice since it has honey, aloe and rhassoul mud in it. If you’ve tried this let me know how it is!

The next bath bomb I picked up is super cute! This little baby blue robot ($3.95) is meant to be for children to help sooth them before bed but I just couldn’t leave it there because it’s adorable and it smells divine! It’s got lavender and chamomile so it’s super relaxing and will help you let go of the day’s tension before bed, it’s also just amazing because it’s a robot!

Last I picked up this MASSIVE bubble bar called the comforter ($10.95) which smells super fruity and amazing. It’s a magenta colour and smells like black currants, very rich and sweet which will make my bathroom smell lovely. Since you don’t need to use a whole bubble bar at a time I think this one is going to last me quite a few baths because it’s so large!

That’s my little lush haul! I hope you enjoyed it & please let me know if you’ve tried any of these or you have any bath products I should try out!
Until next time my loves,
xoxo
