LUSH Christmas 2014 #LUSHCoventry

At the beginning of October I was invited over to the Lush Coventry store to have a preview of the newly released Christmas stock. The Christmas releases are always my favourite and it's the time of year when you're most likely to find me in a Lush store. Autumn/ Winter just symbolises cozy nights in with long baths that aren't complete without a Lush product or two.

I love how usually you can smell a Lush store before you can see it. I hadn't visited Coventry town centre before so I had to work out where I was going but I made perfect time. We got the chance to look around freely and to talk to the staff about the new ranges.


Bubble bars are usually top of my list and this year the Halloween and Christmas range's haven't failed to impress. I'm a sucker for appearances and like nothing more than displaying my Lush goodies. I picked up a Wizard bubble bar to befriend The Christmas Penguin. The Butterbear bath bomb is adorable and the Star Light Star Bright bath melt is too pretty to resist. I think I need to remind you that Lush products are good for your skin too before I get carried away on looks!




The stand out product for me this year is definitely 'Northern Lights'. A cross between a bubble bar and a bath bomb, it does the best of both. We had a demonstration of this in use and the array of colours and bubbles are lovely. I couldn't resist picking one up.




The return of Snow Fairy is enough to excite some but there are more shower gels to the Christmas range with So White, Hot Toddy and Rose Jam. I'll always be a Snow Fairy lover but So White would be my next pick with it's crisp apple scent.






I love how strong the scents are with Lush soaps. Yog Nog is my favourite with a honeycomb scent and a melt in your hands feel as it is made from soya yoghurt. Reindeer Rock and Fairy Ring Soap are also new this year.





As usual, there are some amazing sets this year which would make perfect gifts including a bumper set by the name of White Christmas containing 17 of their most popular products.


Not to forget, FUN - a multipurpose product almost like playdough that you can make shapes with and wash your hair and body. The gold bar is back this year along with a black, white and orange one designed so that you can make your own snowman!


Thank you so much to Lush Coventry for having me. The staff were all lovely and I had a great evening catching up with and meeting new bloggers.

What's your favourite release?

My Roaccutane Journey

This post is more audience specific than usual but I hope it may be of help to anyone going through a similar situation. I want to give you an insight into my Roaccutane journey as I know I often turned to searching Google for answers. Never did I think i’d be posting this on the internet but here goes...
Onto the back story, I had oily/ combination skin as a teenager and suffered with the usual teenage spots that cleared up as I approached my 20’s. Later, I was on the combined contraceptive pill and decided to take a break from it when I was around 23. I stopped it for 6 months and was hit with a backlash. Stopping the pill and a change in hormones is the only explanation I can put my breakout down to.
My skin broke out significantly. I had courses of Lymecycline prescribed and Zineryt (Zinc & Erythromycin) Topical Lotion. With minimal success from these, I was referred to a dermatologist.

Before all of this, I could probably count the number of times I had left the house without ma…

Top Nail Varnish Picks For Autumn/ Winter

Autumn/ Winter to me means wearing a lot of grey and black with bursts of khaki and burgundy for colour. Literally, if I see anything khaki coloured, i'm in love and now that's transitioned into my nail varnish thanks to last month's Glossybox. 
Here are my current go to nail varnishes, although I did place a Boots order on Cyber Monday for some of the Revlon Gel Envy polishes so there could be some additions to this soon!

Nails Inc Gel Effect Polish in 'Kensington High Street' Sally Hansen Complete Salon Manicure in 'Plums the Word' Color Club Nail Lacquer in 'Barely There' Color Club Nail Lacquer in 'Glossy Seal' Nails Inc London Polish in 'Battersea Park' Color Club Nail Varnishes have a great opaque consistency and you can easily get away with one coat. I actually prefer the regular Nails Inc varnishes over the gel effect ones but I love this burgundy shade. Sally Hansen varnishes have a great brush and this plum colour is perfe…

Statement Necklaces - NEXT

I have been searching for the perfect statement necklaces for so long without success. I'm a bit too fussy you see. The majority of statement necklaces in the shops are gold and it's rare for me to wear gold jewellery; I much prefer silver!

In all the shops i've looked in, there has always been something not quite right: too big, too spiky or the wrong colour. I'd actually given up hunting for one but this morning, I ventured into NEXT.

Next isn't somewhere that I usually go into but I was surprised at how many nice things they have and there were definitely a few that I wanted!

I couldn't choose between the following two necklaces so treated myself to both! They were quite hard to photograph but i've linked the items so you can check out the stock photos on the NEXT website.

Mix Plate And Crystal Effect Statement Necklace £18


Short Crystal Effect Necklace £14



Other items I considered buying:

This grey jewelled clutch bag caught my eye and was £20.
I was reall…
