Lush Party Exclusives Mini Haul

Back in the Summer Lush released some brand-new party exclusive products; these were available for a limited time online for a tester period before being made store exclusive and only available if you booked a party.

Seeing how cute the designs were I was keen to try the products ASAP and put in a little online order with the intention of blogging about them. However, me being me I let time pass me by and completely forgot. For today’s Blogtober I thought I’d finally share a little haul and review with you – if you would like to try these products for yourself you can buy them exclusively when you book a party with Lush!

Huge Lush Cosmetics Christmas/Boxing Day Haul 2018

If you know me you’ll know I spend all year eagerly anticipating the one sale that Lush holds each and every Boxing day. It has become a tradition of sorts now for my family and I to get up super early, catch the bus to Lakeside and queue for about an hour or so just so I can get my hands on all the amazing reduced Lush. Maybe it sounds a bit sad, but when Lush only hold one sale a year it makes sense for me to be there for it and save some cash in the process. My brother and I even talked tactics over the cold tea on Christmas day this year – that’s how big of an event it is for me! This year I had a list of wants and, although I didn’t quite get everything on that list I think I did rather well! Today I thought I’d share my Boxing day scores as well as some of the Lush I was gifted this year!

Lush Cosmetics Christmas 2018 Haul Part One

Whilst most of us are still firmly in the Autumn mindset, planning for the spooky-season ahead and all the fun Halloween parties and events we’ll be attending, Lush is, as always, thinking ahead to Christmas. The full Christmas 2018 range dropped just a week or so after the Halloween range which I must admit does feel a little early!

The range this year is absolutely huge with loads of new and innovative products just crying out to be added to Christmas wish-lists. Despite all the newness I was really sad to see my old favourite, Magic of Christmas bubble bar wand knocked off the line-up. At this point in time I’ve tried quite a few of the new products but as the range is so extensive there’s still so many more baths to be had!

Here’s what I’ve picked up so far…

Bath And Body Works Fall 2018 Haul (UK)

As a self-confessed bath bomb addict and bubble-bath dweller, I’m always on the look out for new bath-time treats. Living in the UK I’m lucky enough to have access to my all-time favourite store – Lush. Lush has amazing products and for that reason all of my bath bombs, shower gels, scrubs and shampoos come almost exclusively from there and I feel quite content with that. But there’s one store I have always desperately wanted to buy and try products from, and it’s one we definitely don’t have here in the UK – Bath and Body Works.

Up until very recently I have only been able to browse the Bath and Body Works website longingly, adding products to a basket I can never check out with before exiting the site and buying a consolation bath bomb from Lush. That was until a fellow blogger on Instagram pointed me in the direction of a very special Facebook group…

Lush Halloween 2018 Haul

Every year as September rolls around I begin to eagerly anticipate the Lush Halloween range; the glittery pumpkin-shaped bubble bars and ghoulish bath bombs that appear in stores as the spooky season descends upon us.

This year I didn’t have long to wait, with the range dropping much earlier than previous years. Naturally I was in my local Lush, scooping up all the bath-time treats on the day of their release. And truth be told, what better way to kick start the season than with a big ole Lush haul?

Lush Kitchen Shower Gel Exclusives Haul

When the Lush Kitchen closed its doors back in October I was a little bit heartbroken – better off financially yes, but heartbroken all the same.

You see, the Friday menu releases and the ensuing packages in the post that followed were oftentimes the highlights of my week, and without them my life has felt a teeny bit less exciting (and less gorgeously scented).

Lush Labs is in full swing now but I have to say, for me it has been a slow start; I haven’t yet purchased any of the exclusives simply because none of them have appealed to me in the way Lush Kitchen products did. That’s why, when the Lush Kitchen announced it would be releasing seven (one-off) exclusive shower gels I was probably more excited than is generally considered acceptable.

I was lucky enough to grab four of these exclusive shower gels so today I thought it would be fun (and a bit throw-back) to share my haul with you!

Lush Cosmetics Valentines Day 2018 Haul

Nothing gets me more excited for the season ahead than a new Lush release, and the Valentines range is one I always highly anticipate because I never fail to fall in love with the products.

When Lush dropped its’ 2018 Valentines range as pre-release online I knew I had to grab some goodies straight away! So whilst the range isn’t officially in store until the 12th of this month, I already have a selection of bath bombs and bubble bars to share with you today – how exciting! (more…)

Lush Cosmetics Christmas Haul 2017

I have been eagerly awaiting the release of the Lush Christmas line since last year. Not only are the products super fun and festive but they are among some of my all time favourites. During the December months I take the opportunity to stock up on (and stash away) as many of my faves as possible to see me through the remainder of the year.

Today I thought it would be fun to share with you my small(ish) Lush Christmas haul and talk you through some of the must-haves this year!

My Perfect Pamper Evening

I lead a busy life and, as such, tend to become prone to bouts of stress. Combine that with my anxiety and you have a recipe for disaster. Because of this it’s really important for me to take time out at least once a week to focus on my mental health and have a nice pamper evening. Winding down and treating myself helps to calm me and lift my spirits so it’s something I always make time for.

On Saturday we finally completed our move. Although this has been an exciting time, it obviously hasn’t been without stress; we have found ourselves incredibly busy packing, moving, unpacking, setting up the house etc. In fact we’ve been so busy that I have barely had time to sit down for five minutes. Finally, on Sunday night (tonight!) I found a couple of hours to relax and have some “me time”.  Here I am sharing my perfect pamper evening…
