It’s Been a While Lush

Guess who made a sneaky Lush purchase online and then got super excited when it finally arrived after stalking the postman for about a week…….If you guessed me then you would be absolutely correct! *smiles excitedly bc new smellies & Lush goodness*

After quite a while browsing their huge range, I picked out 4 products that I thought I would really like and so far I’m not disappointed! I got a “Unicorn Horn” which is from their Valentine’s Day collection, a “Dragon’s Egg” bath bomb, their “Celestial facial” moisturiser and also “Tangled” which is a hot oil hair treatment specifically for knotted, frizzy hair which admittedly I have been struggling with lately.

Unicorn Horn (£4.25) – As you can see from the picture this is a very colourful one, attractive to the eyes but also to the nose with its sweet lavender smell. According to the website this bubble bar has Neroli oil in it which is known to increase serotonin levels in the brain leaving us feeling much more relaxed and cheery after a long soak 🙂

Dragon’s Egg (£3.50) – Being honest, I picked this bath bomb purely because of the name. It sounded pretty awesome and after using it today I can say I loved it! It has quite a sweet lemon-y smell which reminded me of those hard boiled lemon sweets you can get and was pleasantly surprised to find out that this somewhat bland looking bath bomb had an orange centre, much like a real egg, leaving my bath a golden orange colour with lots of bubbles!

Tangled (£6.50) – I really can’t wait to try this one out. This product stood out to me when browsing online because I have very tangled hair at the moment and I just can’t seem to get rid of it! I can imagine it will be hard to get this oil out of my hair afterwards but I am excited to try it.

Celestial (£12.95) – Pictured below is my favourite of the products I bought, the Celestial moisturiser. It smells heavenly and feels so smooth and silky on my face without being oily. I love it!

I hope you have enjoyed this little Lush post as much as I have enjoyed receiving these products! What would you personally recommend from their collection? Let me know what you think 🙂

Trying Something New

To my wonderful followers,

Lately I haven’t been feeling the best which is why my posts have been less frequent. I’ve been extremely tired and sluggish, have had back pains and weird itchy hive-type things covering my legs. I thought it was time for a detox, or a”teatox”, something I had honestly never tried before so I wasn’t sure what to expect. I had however heard that they were really good for giving energy and removing that bloated feeling, as well as getting rid of sugar cravings (that I wanted to see!). As a follower of fellow Irish blogger FacesByGrace on snapchat, I knew the risks associated a lot of those skinny teas out there, mostly those containing Senna leaves and other laxatives as it stops the absorption of the contraceptive pill – a big no no for many of us women. Following Grace’s recommendations I decided to try Miss Fit Skinny Tea, an Irish company that prides itself in the results it delivers but also in the fact that it contains no laxatives, making it possibly the safest option on the market regarding skinny detox teas. The company’s founder and creator Ruth was quite a pleasure to do business with. She was very sweet and helpful when I messaged her on Facebook to talk about her tea and you can tell that she really cares about her customers and the quality of the product they receive.

So anyway I decided I would start with the 14 day package which was 24.99 and also bought the adorable little strawberry tea infuser which was 5. Postage was fast which is always a plus to buying things online. I ordered it on a Sunday and it arrived the Thursday to my delight.

Here’s what I received in an adorable pink envelope with white polka dots ^.^

I’ve really only started drinking the tea today so I can’t give much of an opinion on if I feel different or anything yet but it does have a nice flavour. Kinda reminds me of green tea which I love! Ruth recommends drinking 3-4 cups a day but I have definitely drank at least 5 so far…and may have another one before I finish typing this. I really hope it does make me feel better soon. Onwards and upwards as they say!

All my love,
