I want to lay you down in a BATH of roses: Titsy Totsy Lush Bath Bomb Review!

30 September 2015

Hello!

Yes that title was a Bon Jovi lyric. I'm well cool.

A couple of weeks ago I managed to win a competition hosted by the lovely Reneé over on Lose The Road and one of the products in my package was the gorgeous Titsy Totsy bath bomb from Lush.

I'm a bit of a noob when it comes to Lush so I've been trying to "educate" myself by buying a few bath bombs from their collection and when I found out I was going to get some new Lush product, being excited was an understatement.

Like I said above, I was so excited to try this out so as soon as my parcel arrived, I ran myself a bath to test it out! Lush describe the Titsy Totsy bath bomb as the medieval love potion with an enticing combination of floral orris root powder, rose, and lemon. As suggested I really did fall in love with the scent and it was so relaxing to sit and soak yourself in for a an hour ... or three.

Overall I really loved this bath bomb and I really noticed my skin feeling a lot softer when I came out. I've also never bathed in a bath full of dried flowers but this bath bomb is definitely the way to go. Why don't we do this for every bathtime!? You can check it out here on the Lush website for £3.35 per bomb!

Things I'm Loving | September

Hello!

August is over and it feels that before I know it, all the Christmas songs and Halloween costumes will be hitting the shops. We're just wishing our years away! My last "things I'm loving" post was back in June and between then and now, I have a lot more new things that I'm currently in love with! Of course I thought I would write an updated post!


1. Pretty Little Liars

PLL

When the finale was finally released and everyone was going slightly crazy about it, I was like "What IS this show?" so I thought I would check it out for myself on Netflix. Needless to say after sitting and watching 10 episodes in one go, I am now addicted! I've actually finished upto season 6 now and although I'm majorly loving it, I have no idea how they can keep this going for a whole 6 seasons! Is that it that difficult to find out who A is!?


2. Autumn is coming!

Let's be honest - our Summer in the UK is pretty much done and over! It was sweet while it lasted but the colder months are coming and that is coming is really exciting to me! I love Autumn as I personally think it's the prettiest season for all the gorgeous colours from the fallen leaves. I cannot wait!


3. Being Alcohol-free!
dryathlon

I'm not sure if this is a sarcastic "love" or not but I thought I would include it anyway! Bascially to challenge myself, I signed up for the Dryathlon in aid of Cancer Research. So far I'm going strong although on a recent night out I was very tempted to order myself a cocktail. But I stayed strong and sipped at my Diet Coke instead! You can check out my page here if you're interested!


4. Lush

I'm a bit of a newbie when it comes to Lush and it was my first time going in and actually buying a bath bomb! I was a little overwhelmed but I eventually settled on two, the Rose Jam bubbleroon and the Frozen bathbomb. I am now a convert and finding it hard to not go back and buy the entire store!


5. Kate Moss Nude Collection Lipstick

I'm in love. End of. 
I brought this lipstick at the beginning of July and I think I have worn it everyday since! I love the way it makes my lips look and since it's a gorgeous nude but slightly shimmery, it can be worn for ANY event! I'm running low and I will definitely need to get back up Superdrug to buy another!

6. My New Car!

It was only a year ago that I brought my (now) old car but after giving me probably the year from hell with the cost of repairing it, I have now decided it was time to say goodbye! I have now welcomed my new Golf GT baby into the family and I am super in love with it *enter heart eye emoji*

Insta Natural Superior Hydration Argan Oil Hair Mask Review!*

29 September 2015

Hello!

Feeling rough is a complete understatement this past weekend. Not only have I had a few things going on in my personal life but I also came down with a cold. Urgh! I know that a runny nose and irritating men are nothing compared to other people's problems but some days, the little problems just build up and really bring you down. This was me this weekend.

To cheer myself up I thought I would pour a nice hot bubble bath, light a few candles and even treat myself with my new Argan Oil hair mask from the lovely Insta Natural. I'm really starting to love this brand and I've reviewed multiple products from them by now so I knew my hair was in good hands when I slathered it all over my hair.

The instructions actually suggest applying to damp, towel dried hair but since I was in the bath and didn't want to have to mess about getting back in the shower again, I just shampooed my hair and then applied the mask. A few chapters of my book after (yes, I read quick) I washed the product off and went off to dry my hair.

Apart from the gorgeous coconut and almond scent that it left my hair with, I was really surprised with how much softer my hair felt. I've been trying so many different products recently to help revive my dead ends but only a small few have actually made a difference to my hair. This is definitely one of them. Even hours after washing my hair, I kept running my fingers through my ends because I couldn't believe how soft it was!

The price for me is probably a little steep but for £17.95 you do get a big 240ml tube and since I only needed a few scoops to cover my hair, I can see this size lasting me quite a long time. It's definitely going to be one of products that I'll go to when I need a bit of TLC. If you fancy treating yourself too with this hair mask, you can check it out here on Insta Natural's Amazon page.

*I was sent this to trial but my opinions are honest and my own.

L'Oreal Volume Million Lashes Extra Black Review

28 September 2015

Hello!

As I've said before in previous posts, I much prefer to try different brands and products instead of just sticking to one product and re-buying over and over. I like to have a bit of variety in my make-up bag!

The one product I've always a bit of a soft spot for is the L'Oreal Volume Million Lashes. Anyone remember the old advertisement for it with Cheryl then Cole? Well I loved that mascara! I don't think any other mascara has made my lashes look just as full and volumised as this mascara.

Well on one of my recent trips to Superdrug I was desperately in need of some new foundation which I actually picked up from the L'Oreal counter (review will be soon!) and since they had an 3 for 2 offer I decided to pick up another tube of the mascara! Perfect!

The pictures above really don't do the mascara justice as it volumises my lashes so much that I can actually feel them brushing against my glasses when I blink. That never happens!

Normally when I buy mascara, I tend to stick to big, thick bristle brushes as opposed to the smaller comb brushes. I think the comb actually makes my lashes stick together and give that horrible "spider legs" look. Ew! The Million Lashes brush has a multitude of small fine bristles which is meant to help achieve that fanned-out effect without any clumps. And I honestly can't agree more with that. I feel like I'm wearing fake lashes when I look in mirror!

Although £9.99 is probably on the higher end of what I'd like to spend on my make-up, I really think this mascara is worth paying that little extra for. I loved it about 5 years ago and I still love it now! It is definitely that perfect mascara if you want to fake big lashes without the drama. If you fancy giving them a go, you can check it out here on the Superdrug website!

Everything But The Memories Goodies Bag!*

27 September 2015

Hello!

If you're following me on Instagram (link here incase you're not!), you probably would have seen my picture showing off my new blogging stationary from Everything But The Memories! I had fell in love with a few of their products a while back so when they kindly offered to send me some goodies to review, I jumped at the chance! 

A few days after agreeing, a cute little polka dot package was posted through my door with all my cute and personalised gifts inside. As you can see, everything was beautifully wrapped and opening them all felt like little presents. It was my birthday all over again!

Inside my package was this adorable "Blog idea" notepad with "I believe in Unicorns" pencil. These have now taken pride of place next to my computer and has even come with me in my handbag when I had ideas on the go!

As well as the notepad, I also got sent the super cute "You better check yourself" keyring which now is attached to my new car keys! This is probably my favourite goody as it always makes me smile whenever I go out driving. 

Overall I really love my goodies from EBTM and I can easily see myself ordering more things from them in the future. If you're ever in the look out for a cute personalised gift for a friend or family member, then I would definitely recommend EBTM as they have so much good products and choice to choose from!
