Spring Lookbook


I had so much fun making this video, I've never filmed a video like this so it took me quite a while and I wanted to show you outfits I actually wore in everyday life so I filmed it throughout the month. I'm pretty happy with how it turned out so I hope you guys like it too and if you do make sure to go over to my channel  here and subscribe.

Lush Kitchen | The Ex Factor

The Ex Factor



So my obsession with the Lush Kitchen doesn't seem to be going anywhere fast and at the end of February I made a little order as they had my absolute favourite soap Holy Cacao in the Kitchen and I couldn't resist adding this adorable little bomb to my order as well.
The Ex Factor was a Valentine's Day special bomb back in 2011, shaped like a little blue ginger bread man with a pink heart but he was far from romantic, The Ex Factor is supposed to represent an ex so you just pop him in the bath and let him fizzle away. I think this is such a cute idea for a bath bomb and it certainly looks adorable but I wasn't overly impressed by the scent. The Ex Factor is scented with synthetic musk and ylang ylang which is the same fragrance as their Butterball bath bomb which I know is a favourite for a lot of Lush fans. Personally whilst I like the scent of Butterball I can't stand how oily it makes my skin feel so in theory this should have been perfect for me but without all of the cocoa butter that Butterball has The Ex Factor lacked the creaminess in it's fragrance and I just felt that it was a bit lack lustre. 
It was a nice bomb to use and it made the water a pleasant blue colour but it just wasn't overly exciting in terms of scent and so I don't think I'd buy this again if Lush decided to bring it back.

Nails | Vintage Purple Patterns With The MoYou London Fashionista Plate


Over the past three months I've really been loving my MoYou stamping plates, I seem to have amassed quite a few plates and after some trial and error I think I've gotten the hang of using them. For this look I used a base of Barry M's Gelly Nail Paint in Coconut and then used the Moyou stamping polish in Purple Punch with the Fashionista Plate 08 and sticky stamper. The only thing that slightly bothers me is that as I have quite small nails I only manage to get parts of the designs onto my nails instead of the full image.

5 Looks With The Urban Decay Vice 4 Palette



I haven't done a post like this in absolutely ages but I got this palette for Christmas and I've been using it so much over the past couple of months I thought I'd do a little post and show you some of the ways I've been using it. Urban Decay palettes are undoubtedly my favourite eyeshadows and I love my Naked 1 and Naked 3 but I don't think I would have actually picked this palette up for myself as the shades are all quite bright and in your face which isn't what I'm used to. However since getting the Vice 4 I've loved trying out the brighter shades and I've rekindled my old love of bright blue eyeshadow. There are still some shades I haven't properly tried yet like Crowbar (the sparkly gold) and Beatdown (a sort of bluey purple) but I've found a new favourite in Flame which is the most beautiful shimmery peachy orange and Framed which is perfect for blending out harsh edges. So here are 5 looks I've been wearing using the Vice 4 palette and if you'd like to see this palette in action you check out my video using it over on my YouTube channel here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ce5SZsBwbTM

Lush Easter 2016 | Bunch Of Carrots Reusable Bubble Bar

Bunch Of Carrots- £6.25


This is my absolute favourite product from Lush's Easter range, adorable carrot shaped bubble bars tied together with paper leaves, they are pretty pricey at £6,25 but when compared to the huge Easter bombs Humpty Dumpty and Which Came First? they're actually much better value. I've managed to get two baths out of each carrot which I was pretty impressed with and as you can see half a carrot made a huge amount of bubbles and turned the water a pleasant sugary pink colour so you should be able to get baout six baths for your £6.25. 
The scent used in Bunch Of Carrots is an all time favourite of mine, I love any products with Bergamot oil in them and the scent works fabulously in Bunch Of Carrots, it also contains Buchu oil and Sicilian lemon oil which combine to give it a tropical fruity scent perfect for spring. It's also the same scent as they're Snowman shower jelly from the Christmas range although ironically Snowman contains carrot oil and Bunch Of Carrots doesn't which seems pretty strange to me but I'm sure Lush have their reasons.
I really wish Lush would add this scent to their permanent range perhaps in a Comforter style bubble bar but for now I suppose I will have to content myself with savouring my little Bunch Of Carrots.
