Lush Comforter Bubble Bar!

I'm a huge lush junkie honestly if i could live in one of their shops i would but because its summer and i've been away from uni and therefore the city i haven't been inside one of the shops in months, cry. But knowing me well for my birthday one of my friends bought me the bunty gift box and so i have four new lush products to satisfy my cravings! 

This one is actually the mini comforter bar at 100g where as usually they come in less of a ball shape at a flatter 200g which is much easier to break up for several bath uses but because this was in the ball i decided just to treat myself and use it all in one go. 

Bubble bars are Lush's answer to bubble bath without the plastic bottle, you crumble the bar under running water and let it fizzle away leaving you with a mountain of bubbles and brightly coloured water. This particular one lush describe it to "wrap you in a fluffly pink blanket of blackberry bubbles to keep you safe and warm" The scent is gorgeous i'm not sure if i would pin point it as blackberry or blackcurrant but it was certainly sweet smelling and left me comforted as intended! 

The bubbles lasted the whole time i was in the bath without fizzling away and when i got out my skin felt soft and smooth which is always a bonus!  Also the bright pink water doesn't leave your bath stained or marked which i know might be some peoples concerns!

My Instagram from this bath while watching youtube on my laptop, as you do, best way to relax!

You can buy the comforter from Lush for 4.50 each (here) which might seem a bit expensive for a bubble bar but i guarantee you will get multiple uses out of it if you break it up and it smells heavenly!

Have you tried any of Lush's Bubble Bars? Let me know your favourites!

August Wishlist

August Wishlist

I feel like i haven't made a post in forever! I spent all of this week in England staying with my boyfriend's family and had an amazing time especially visiting London for the first time!! But anyway to get back into the swing of things here is whats on my wishlist this month! There seems to be a recurring blue theme and i think i'm over Summer because everything catching my eye is warm and cosy.

1) ASOS Skater Skirt In Sketchy Pug Print
Link Here
If you know me you would know i'm obsessed with Pugs and anything pug related i need in my life so this skirt was immediately added to my mental wishlist i love it!

2) Topshop Hooded Lightweight Jacket
Link Here
I've had my eye on this jacket for ages it also comes in blue and black but i think i like the khaki best. I love that its lightweight because it would be good on days when its slightly hotter but also jumpers and cardigans can be layered under it in the winter!

3) River Island Messanger Bag
Link Here
These bags have been around for a while in riv and i know why! I've owned two of these in brown and burgandy and would happily had another to my collection. They are such a good size for everyday or i even use them for uni because you can fit so much into them!

4) Barry M Gel Nail Polishes£3.99
Link Here
I recently jumped on the bandwagon with these and i'm in love! I own the shade satsuma but i'm desperate to add more to my collection they are so long lasting and give such a pretty glossy finish.

5) River Island Spike Statement Necklace
Link Here
I can't believe this necklace is only a fiver i think that's such a good price for river island. I love statement necklaces and seem to be loving blue right now so this necklace is perfect to me!

6) Topshop Lace Up Brogue Boots
Link Here
I have been looking around for a pair of black boots for Winter recently and i think these are my favourite that I've seen. Last year i loved military boots and at first glance these are similar but i think the brogue like detailing on them makes them so cute and a little bit different to any others I've seen. They are a little pricey but i imagine they are really good quality and would be long wearing!

If you have made any wishlists recently i would love to see them link them below and let me know what you think of mine!
Much Love xx

July Favourites!

Nip + Fab Coconut Lattte Body Butter
First up is this body butter from Nip and fab which i actually got in a glossybox a while back but you can pick up in boots for £8.49 (here). As far as body butters and moisturisers go as much as i love them i suck at remembering to apply them but for some reason I've been slopping this on religiously lately! The smell is absolutely amazing and hands down my favourite thing about this product if you like the smell of coffee and coconut then you will love this and well if you don't then maybe stay clear and try one of the other scents: Pistachio Sundae or Mango Smoothie. Its a great body butter that goes on smooth and drys straight away leaving you soft and not sticky which i have found with some other body butters and hate!

Rimmel Kate Moss Lasting Finish Matte Lipstick in 110
I didn't include a great picture of the actual colour of this lipstick but i think i'm going to do a full review of it soon with swatches so eyes pealed! This has been my go to lipstick lately its the perfect summer neon coraly red colour that goes on creamy (strange for a matte) and lasts hours! They are £5.49 from boots (here).

Benefit Brow Zings Palette
I really love bold eyebrows and the colour (I have the light one) fits perfectly with my brow colour! I'm surprised i haven't included this in a favourites post before because i probably use this most days i much prefer it over using a pencil and it lasts all day. It's a wee bit pricey but i have used mine most days since May and i'm not even close to pan so well worth the investment! £23.50 from Boots (here)

Naked Basics Palette
The much raved about Basics Palette but rightly so. This month, maybe just because of the hot weather, i have been reaching for this probably every day to create a simple fast look. I have mainly been wearing w.o.s with naked 2 in my crease and occasionally faint to darken my outer corners a bit. I have also been loving using the matte black (crave) to line my eyes as it gives a much softer look than eyeliner.

Alterna Bamboo Style Boho Waves
Without a doubt my favourite of the favourites! I already raved about this in my glossybox post after only one use but now that i've had time to use it more i'm even more in love with it and will definitely be repurchasing it when i finish it despite the price tag which is around about 18 pounds but varies on different websites. I'm 100% going to do a full review of this because everyone should have it in their lives!

If you have done a favourites post recently i would love to read them so link them below and let me know if you have tried any of my favourites!
Much Love,
