Lushies I LOVE U

Oh yes oh yes :) Another lush haul. Lately I've been wearing really simple eye make up and a bright lip because i just don't have time in the morning to do much more .. also I feel starting out a new course with new people Subtle make up is more suitable. Oh and .. i like sleeping in my bed rather than getting up 20 mins before i have to , to do more make up.
Instead I've been treating myself to Lush baths , hair masks and smells :P

Top left is H'suan Wen Hua , its a hair moisturising mask and you put it on dry hair for 20 mins before you shampoo and condition as normal. As I have said in other posts .. I actually have quite oily hair but there is no harm in giving your hair a treat as long as you rinse thoroughly. This left my hair Soft and shiny I was very pleased, and my hair smelt amazing even for 2days after using the product. Apparently this product contains Bay leaves , bananas and avocado but I find the most obvious scent in my nose and hair was Cinnamon. Truly lovely , I would purchase again but not use regularly due to having oily hair. This cost £7.60 for 225g

Bottom left is my fave soap from lush , The godmother. Sorry the picture doesn't show the soap but I already have one open and this is my back up for when it runs out, check out a pic Here. If your a fan of lush .. or maybe someone has bought you a Christmas box set one year , you will know they do a shower gel called "Snow fairy" This is the soap version. I actually bought this about a year and a half ago but forgot about it , then a friend bought me Snow fairy xmas past and I was gutted to find out it is limited to xmas and re-discovered The godmother :)
My only Teeeeny Tiny gripe about this is it takes a bit of scrubbing to get a good lather on your skin. Obviously these come in different sizes so different prices :)

Along the top is Tuca Tuca , my new Love! I got a sample of this perfume I wrote about it in this Post. All I can say is I've been wearing nothing else , its a great sweet perfume, This is my 2nd purchase of the 11ml bottle and that's not because the first ran out its just because i Love it :) It IS available in a bigger size but i like that i can pop this in my make up bag or handbag easily. :)

And lastly two bubble bars/bomb The Comforter and Amandopondo. The comforter is big enough for two baths .. i usually split my bathos bubble bars in two anyway , so the comforter could easily be used for 3. I only used a 3rd of the bar for my bath below :) Piink , Smells of blackcurrants covered in cream and .. really is comforting lol , I love how its almost like a smoothie.
As for Amandopondo I got bought one of these for Xmas and I haven't bought it since , not because i didn't like it , I kind of just forgot about it. Its rose and lemon Mmmm , I will give you a better description and pic when I use this :)

Hope this helps XXX

N.O.T.D Back to School/ College / Uni

I know alot of the american bloggers and YouTuber's done back to school stuff ages ago , but I only went back yesterday Sooo I thought i do a little nail of the day. A while ago I saw JulieG doing back to school nails , with a little school bus , an apple , ruler etc etc .. I changed it up a bit but stole her apple idea as it was pretty simple to do and very very cute :) Please click to see the picture better.
So I used Barry M Mushroom as my background and only placed an apple on my ring finger's. I used a kind of shimmer red from rimmel and Barry M Spring green for the leaf, I used a cuticle stick to draw/paint. I was really really pleased with the result ... what do you think? XXX

HELP With Contouring PLEASEE

Hi there folks , I'm asking as a favour a question to all that read my blog ..... I have never ever contoured my face before , but i really really want to try it out ..... here is the thing though. I have NO matte bronzers or highlighters etc , all shimmer shimmer and I'd like it to look natural.

For a contouring "kit" or two separate products which would i be best going for ? for my first time? (ohhh sounds naughty)
Even if no one can tell me the best things to try , can anyone maybe tell me who is best to ask ? like which make up counters actually help ....... I usually love the mac ladies ... HATE the benefit ones lol (no offence i used to work at benefit I know you are told to jump down ppls throat upon arrival at a store or counter lol)

Any tips , hints , help will be very very much appreciated.
Thanks Guys xxxx
