Herts/Beds Meet - Final Information!

After months of talks, planning and arranging, the meet up is now less than 2 weeks away! (10 days the day this goes live!) 

My self and a few of the other girls have received massive interest in the meet up, and between me, Shona, Bex and Hannah, we've now managed to finalize the details and bring them to you! 

Orignally we planned to go to Space NK to see if we could receive a make-over, however, this will not be possible! So instead here's the plan;

  1. Meet Outside Lush at 11am for a meet/greet/get to know each other. 
  2. Mooch around the shops, I.e Lush, Benefit, TK Maxx, Topshop ect. 
  3. No meet up would be complete without a trip to Superdrug and Boots! 
  4. Go into Space Nk, Swatch, Try and Maybe buy some products, maybe into Champneys too!
  5. Waterend Barn - For a bite to eat, cocktails/mocktails and seeing as it's my birthday, maybe even CAKE! 
I am under the impression that the meet up will end at the barn, after we've eaten and had a good time! :) 

Hannah messaged Lush to see if there were any events going on during the day of the meet up, although there were no events, Lush did reply with this; 
Whilst we are not planning any events for that particular sunday we are one of many LUSH shops around the world taking part in an Official Attempt for GUINNESS WORLD RECORDS TM at collecting kiss prints!
We will be using our beautiful Emotional Brilliance Cruelty Free Make Up range to make the kiss prints and collecting them on T-shirts so would love for you all to come down and be a part of something truly inspirational!

Otherwise we can offer you a Hello Gorgeous Workshop on the sunday at our Bloggers rate of £7.50 per person, this will last for just under an hour and include a shop tour and mini-facial masterclass, plus a lovely pot of our CupCake Fresh Face Mask made by YOU to take home!

So this is a possibility, for this I do need definate numbers, so if you are interested please Email me ASAP;

Thank you! :) 

Hope you all like the sound of this! I hope to see alot of you there, I know it sounds vague, but that's the idea, it's open for people to do as they feel! :) 10 days and counting! :)

Beauty; Tea Tree Anti-Spot Stick - Review


Some time ago I was out and about with a few friends when I was looking for a good value/not over priced treatment for spots. I was in Wilkinson when I spotted this beauty for just £1. Now I wasn't expecting miracles by any stretch of the imagination but for £1 I was willing to give it a go. The results? Not bad! 


After A Couple Of Days;

The images aren't great and you can't really tell, but the redness and the size of the spots had reduced dramatically! Like I said I wasn't expecting it to be perfect but I literally can't fault this. It even smells amazing (if you like tea tree that is!) I've even had people asking what it is that I'm using as I never have had good skin. I'd deffo give this a go :) 

Have you ever tried this? Do you like tea tree products?

Fashion; Birthday Dress Wishlist

It's near and it's coming fast! In 2 weeks and 3 days it's my 19th birthday. It feels almost like yesterday, that I was excited about turning 18 and legally being able to drink, go out and buy things in the shop that I couldn't before! And now I'm sat here thinking, this time next year I'll be about to be ending my teen years. I'm excited, scared and nervous, the usual things. 

So obviously, I've been thinking about what I would like for my birthday and what I would like to wear! I've been searching for what dress I want to wear for my birthday out! I'm thinking this year is going to be low key compared to last year, just a small meal with family and friends. 

I've narrowed it down to just 4 dresses and still in the process of deciding which one to buy! I wish I could buy all 4 but sadly I don't think that'll be possible! 

They're all from New Look and so far, the bottom right one is my fave! Which one do you think is best? 
What do you usually do for you birthday?

Beauty; May Empties/Favorites

May was a hectic and busy month for me. I was on holiday from work, planning this party, that party, going to dress fittings and all sorts. This is the month when I really started to get into hair care and skincare, and through the process I've found some gems! 

I've found that the Lush Tea Tree water (Review To Come) is one of the most refreshing sprays I've ever come across.I have an obsession with the tea tree smell at the moment, not sure why, but I'm loving it and can't get enough! Another product that I'm using alot is the Clearasil daily clear scrub. This had a fresh smell, almost like the smell of spring time and fresh cut grass! It's really good on my skin and I will also be reviewing this at a later date. In all, I didn't really have any make-up empties faves as my face went bare most of the time, due to my massively improved skin! But with weddings/parties/events coming up, I can assure you there will be some in the June Empties! I've already been thinking of some! 

What are you May Empties/Favorites? Have you tried any of these products?

Lifestyle; Living Life In The Fast Lane...


Over the past few weeks my life seems to be moving forward very quickly. It's hard to believe that this time last year I was planning my 18th party, and now I'm nearly 19, moving out and making grown up decisions that will change mine and my boyfriends lives for the better. 

I do sometimes need to take time and think about my life and the choices I've made (Look at me sounding like I'm 80!) so far, and the choices I have to still make. I was looking through old pictures and thought it'd be a nice post to look back on in later years and see all my best/fave photos in one place :)

I have so many more, but these are just a snip-it  These photo's aren't professional or done with an amazing camera, they're personal, they're memories that have been captured and I love them more than anything. I plan on getting these printed with Photobox, who are offering 60 free prints when you sign up, which I thought was a good deal! 

Do you like photos? Are you crazy about them like me?

Beauty; My Top 5 - Lush Products

Recently I've been using up all my lush products before I step back inside to a lush shop (It's been nearly 4 months since my last trip...) and blow my entire bank balance. I found myself trying products that I'd picked up yet never actually used, or even remembered. So whilst using them, I decided I'd write up and show you my top 5 best picks from my collection! 

The Comforter. 
One of the more expensive bubble bars in the lush range, but totally worth the money. I absolutely love the smell of this! It leaves me skin so smooth and it lasts longer. With most lush bars, I find the bubbles just disappear quite quickly, where as with this one, I find they last so much longer.  

Rating; 5/5 I don't think I could change a single thing.

Think Pink;
I adore this. It's so freaking cute, with the little flowers that fizz away and the confetti that springs into the bath. It's adorable, the only thing I can't stand with this bathbomb is the way the confetti stains my bath. I has to scrub it away! 

Rating; 3/5 - The confetti stains the bath and it doesn't have a strong smell, which is something that I like in my baths. 

Space Girl;
The glitter, the whizz! This bath bomb, is plain, glittery and no hassle! I like it because it has a beautiful smell and leaves no mess. Plus, it's one of the cheaper and a bargain! 

Rating; 4/5 the only thing I'd change it, I'd hope the glitter would be more noticeable. 

Magic Wand;
I am actually gutted that this is only a limited edition around Christmas time. I stocked up and brought around 3 of these! I love the smell and the pinky colour it turns my bath. Feels very magical indeed! It's the little touch on this wand that makes it one of my best products, like the bell. As lush say, it wouldn't be a magic wand with out a little bell!

Rating; 4/5 - I wish it would last longer. 

The Bubble Beard;
I first wanted to try this after seeing so many bloggers rave about it! It produces tons of bubbles with such little product and I kid you not this lasted me around 8 weeks! (Ok so I did use others now and again, but that's still alot of bathtime!) I used this one alot when I first was able to bath again rather than shower after my operation! It's so silky and leaves me feeling refreshed. 

Rating; 5/5 (I can't fault this!) 

What are your favorite lush products?
