LUSH Bath Bombs | Christmas


FROZEN Bath Bomb
The FROZEN Bath Bomb to me Is a rather Christmasy Bath Bomb for me because of it's name it makes me think of (1) The movie ( which had snow ) (2) Being FROZEN cold in the snow in like old days. In the photo you can see ( Top One ) the light blue bath bomb is just a basic design compared to the other LUSH Bath Bombs that's one of the many things I love about this bath bomb. The FROZEN Bath Bomb has more of a sweet smell which to some can be rather Sicily after a while but to others it smells Amazing no matter what. I'm a bit of both so the smell can get to me after a while butI still enjoy it a lot ad especially when it's placed into the bath. When it's placed into the bath the bomb fizzs out a white colour with a hint of blue and the smells manifesting from the bath are Incredible which is why I would recommend this product. I forgot to take a photo so I found a video on YouTube of someone using it and I thought it was rather cool so I will link it ( HERE ) if you're interested.

The INTERGALACTIC Bath Bomb is not really a Christmas Bath Bomb but I just love it so much I had to include it simply because it's amazing AND you could use it as a Christmas Present so strictly speaking it does count. The INTERGALACTIC Bath Bomb has a very unique smell compared to the others. I personally think it's a rather masculine smell so it's a really good present for a boy and they can't complain and say it's " girly " because stereotypically they apparently are but this one is masculine and it smells so good I absolutely love it but the scent does get really really REALLY strong after a while which gives me a sore head but when you add it to your bath the smell changes and becomes less powerful and that's when the scent is at its best. I did take a photo ages ago but I deleted it so now I dint have one but I will find a YouTube video and link it ( HERE ) Again if you're interested.

The BUTTER BEAR Bath Bomb s a really cute and basic Bath Bomb that's why it's probably so popular. I think this is rather Christmasy because I only see this in shops around Christmas so it probably is. When you apply this to the bath it doesn't create any fizzy noises or anything because it isn't like that. It might turn your bath a bit of a milky colour but it's not that noticeable. My two favourite things about this Bath Bomb is how it is a weak subtle smell and when you get in the bath it feels like you have oil on you and it makes your skin amazingly soft. I don't have a photo ( Surprise ) so I will link a video of I find one ( HERE ) if you're interested.

Favourite Things About Christmas

๐ŸŽ…๐ŸฝChristmas ๐ŸŽ…๐Ÿฝ

  • Spending Time With Family - My all time favourites thing about Christmas is when my nan and grandad come over and they spend Christmas with us. They're both really old and they never see much of their family so we make sure they aren't alone on Christmas or any other time and we all celebrate Christmas together and it just makes Christmas more exciting I think personally. 
  •  Putting Up The Christmas Tree - I'm not a Christmas fan to be honest my favourite event is Halloween but the things I personally enjoy about Christmas is Decorating the Christmas tree. I'm sort of a Monica Geller when it comes to things like this and it's my way or no way so when it comes to decorating I just love designing things and it's great to do it with your family and it puts you in a Christmastime mood and it makes the place look so much cooler in my opinion.
  •  Christmas Movies - Christmas Movies is another favourite thing I like to do at Christmas. I hate watching Christmas Movies at the start of December I like to watch them the day before Christmas and that's the only time I truly appreciate Christmas Movies as I find them annoying anytime sooner. ( Christmas Movies post coming soon ) 
  •  Christmas Jumpers - How could I forget about Christmas jumpers as I LOVE jumpers !!! I don't own any Christmas jumpers YET but I have always loved seeing these Tumblr cosy Christmas style look which is another all time favourite thing about Christmas and where I love it will come in handy as it's so cold all the time and it would be socially acceptable to wear jumpers 24/7.  
  •  Christmas Day - I think everyone loves Christmas day to be honest. This is the one time a year my family don't fight over small things and we all get along. Its a stressful day for my mum but even she enjoys the atmosphere in the day and just everyone spending quality time giving each other presents. It's a family tradition to stay in our pjs ALL day and just try relax so this is another thing I personally love about Christmas.
So these are all my Favourite Things About Christmas and I'm sure these are some of your favourite things about Christmas time and if you have anything different you can comment them down below. Sorry I haven't posted in a while I have been so caught up in my School work as I have Prelims after  the Christmas holidays so I'm trying to get all my nabs out the way but I will try to do more Christmas posts. Like always thanks for reading and hope you enjoyed.

Halloween Makeup | Skeleton

So for today's post it's going to be on how to get this look. This is is just a simple half normal half skeleton face. Through the whole look I used a simple cheap £1 Tesco face paint things. If you want to know how to do this simple half skeleton go watch Jasmine Cloughs YouTube video. I found her not that long ago and I'm literally obsessed with her videos they're amazing. Sorry this post is rather short as there isn't much to say without explain what to do which would spoil the video. Thanks for reading and I hope you enjoyed. Happy Halloween ๐Ÿ‘ป !

Halloween Makeup | Cat

๐Ÿ‘ป Halloween ๐Ÿ‘ป
So today's post is going to bea rather small post on my Halloween Makeup I did about a week ago. I got bored one night and decided to take all my make up palettes down and do something festive. this is just a very simple cat/ anything cat like make up look. Truth be told I don't really know what it is meant to be but I found this look on a make up instagram page called Kamilabravo. Obviously herself was a lot better as she I think is some make up artist. To find out how to do the full look I would suggest watch her video but you don't necessarily have to copy all the look and you can make it you own. this post was a lot smaller than I indented due to the fact I broke my tablet by accident ( I don't even know how ) so I have to type and design my posts on my phone and it Is even harder than before so there might not be as many posts and my grammar will most likely be really bad as I type fast and my phone changed words to something completely different. It once changed brb to Nebraska. Thanks for readying and I hope you enjoyed. I did another Halloween Makeup up look that night so I might decide to write another post but on the other look I did.

Favourite scary story? -  A group of young girls were having a slumber party one night and began to exchange ghost stories. One girl claimed that the old man who had been buried earlier that week in the graveyard down the street had been buried alive. She claimed that if you tried, you could hear him still scratching at the lid of his coffin. The other girls called her bluff and told her that she wouldn’t do it. They said she was too afraid to go down there to the grave that very night. They continued to challenge her and eventually she gave into the peer pressure and accepted their challenge. Since she was going to go alone, she needed to prove to the others that she actually followed through with the task. She was supposed to take a stake with her and drive it into the ground so the next day the girls would know that she had been to the grave.
She headed off to the gravesite, stake in hand, and never returned. The other girls assumed she had "chickened out" and had just gone home instead.
The next morning as they passed the graveyard they saw her there at the old man's grave. She had accidentally staked her nightshirt to the ground and when she tried to run from the grave, she couldn’t... she died of fright right on the grave! ( Googled this and found it HERE  )

Make Up Tag

 Make Up  
How old were you when you started wearing makeup?
I think I was roughly when I started S2 which means I was 13 which now that I think of it is a really young age to wear make up but I only wore like Concealer and Mascara

Who taught you to apply makeup?

I thought myself but obviously I had a few tips here and then from my friends and my mum 

What's your favorite eye makeup look to wear?

Hmm, probably a simple neutral eye make up look is my favourite

Have you ever worn false eyelashes?
No I have never worn false lashes simply due to the fact I don't have enough patients or skill's

What makeup do you wear everyday?
Concealer, powder, eye-shadow and Mascara

Do you prefer high end brands or drugstore?
I prefer both. I have both high end and drugstore and to me they both work amazingly

What color are your eyes?
I have blue eyes 

What color of eyeshadows make your eyes pop?
I would say gold eye-shadows and anything with a neutral pink or brown pigment 

Do you use makeup brushes? What brand?
I use aa combination of So Eco, Eco tools, real technique and other random ones

Do you prefer lipstick, lipgloss, or neither?
Hmm. This depends, I am the type of person who can't pull of Lipstick and I really wish I could but I'm just not blessed enough to so I would say both 

What's 1 makeup product you cant live without?
Anything to sort my eyebrows out or Concealer 

Why do you wear makeup? 
I wear make up because I have acne and I need to hide the blemishes but that's not an excuse. I wear make up because truth be told I'm not confident about the way I look naturally and I still don't even when I wear make up so I wear make up to try boost my confidence. 

Glitter or no glitter? 
No glitter. I'm a plain person 

Sponge or brush for applying foundation?

I like to use both but I also like to use my hands 

Pencil, gel or liquid eyeliner?

None :( my eyes are so round I look stoned 24/7 to which I don't suit obviously

Favorite era of makeup?
I would have to say now. People can express themselves a lot more and less people are judged for wearing loads of make up and they're a lot more chilled out about it.

Halloween Ideas

Today's post is going to be on Halloween Ideas. Halloween is my all time favourite holiday. I don't know why I love Halloween but I just do, I always have ever since I was little but all I do is eat Halloween sweets and watch movies like HOCUS Pocus and Halloween town. Things to do on Halloween ; 
  • Have a Halloween Party - This is something I really want to do at some point in my life, dress up and go to a Halloween party. In movies that are based in America they always have a school Halloween ball or something fun but where I live no one really does it anymore which is another thing why I love America is they always go over the top with festive holidays. 
  • Halloween Movie Night - I do this every single year. I buy specifically Halloween sweets and crisps, II get into comfortable clothes and I grabbed my covers and I godownstairs to our blue room and get comfortable then I just watch Halloween movies. I love watching horrors but I'm the type of person who can't watch them in their own and my horror movie friend lives across the country so I can't exactly watch them with her so I stick to the best type of Halloween movies... Disney! Disney do the best Halloween movies and Halloween specials.
  • Dress up and go out - Why not dress up and go out? Or even take your younger sibling out and dress up. My little sister says she is too old to go out so I can't do that anymore but if you have a younger sibling, family member or even friends siblings then you could dress up and take them out. I mean you get free sweets and you get to dress up which is cool.
  • Answer the door - This might sound rather lame but dressing up and answering the door is actually a really fun thing to do as you get to see all these cute little kids dress up in adorable outfits and hear their jokes that you probably already heard or even told like five years ago. 
  • Halloween tricks - This one I was contemplating whether to add in because this one can be very misleading. When I said Halloween Tricks I don't mean smashing pumpkins, egging or TPing peoples houses I simply mean scarying people and stuff like that. 
  • Carving the pumpkins - My mum every year complains that I'm getting to old to carve these pumpkins but I always still do it. This is a really fun activity and the after results can turn out really cool and they just make the place look nicer. 
So here is a list of things you could do on Halloween Night. I hope these are useful and they make people just as excited as I am for Halloween. What's your favourite thing about Halloween? Thanks for reading and I hope you enjoyed.

Ickle Baby Bot | LUSH

So today's post is going to be about the Lush Baby Bot Bath Bomb. I quite recently bought this product and I absolutely love it because it is so easy yet affective. I personally love the smell of this bath product as it isn't really strong and over powering but it isn't weak you can't smell anything. When I first bought it I wasn't too fond on it as I generally couldn't smell a thing but now as I have had it for a bit longer I can definitely smell the Lush Baby Bot scent. The scent of this bath product is quite weird to describe. I have a weird dรฉjร  Vu moment when I smell it just like the Creamy Candy one which is quite strange but nevertheless I like it. I couldn't get a good photo of the Ickle Baby Bot Bath Bomb when I out it in so I had to use a photo of Google but I choice the closest one to what mine looked like. I personally would recommend buying this product as it is incredibly cheap, probably the cheapest one they have and probably one of the best for its price. Comment down below which is your Favourite LUSH product. Thanks for reading and I hope you enjoyed this.

Sweater Weather | Autumn

It is officially Autumn which means soon the leaves will turn red and brown and others will fall off. The nights become longer and the days becomes shorter and the days become just as cold as the nights. Autumn is the time for cool jumpers with hats, scarf's, boot's with fluffy socks, lovely coats and stores bring out all these cosy food and drinks. Autumn just reminds me of one BIG Tumblr post which makes this season just as cosy. Halloween and Bonfire Night both takes place during the Autumn season which makes me just as excited. I am the type of person who wears jumpers 24/7 no matter the season but now that this is Sweater Weather it will be socially acceptable to wear jumpers all the time. This will most likely end up being a small post with plently of Autumn photos so thanks for reading. What's your Favourite thing about Autumn?

Autumn Lipstick | Astor

Tomorrow is officially Autumn so I decided to do a post on Autumn Lipsticks as this just reminded me of autumn so much. This is the Astor Lipstick 75002 Paris ( the bottom of it is ripped of so I can't tell you the name ) which is a very dark Red colour which is very autumnal I thought so I had to add it in. This isnt a Matte lipstick and you can tell but it is sort of in the middle of one but then it looks glossy at the same time. If you look carefully at the lipstick you can see little small specks of glitter but when you apply it to your lips you can't see it. I never normally wear Lipsticks but I really want to try pull this off but when I was wearing this around the house I noticed it had lasted up to eight hours and it left my lips feeling soft ans it didn't even dry mu my lipout. It doesn't feather/bleed into find lines and it provides full coverage. The one thing I don't like about this Lipstick is the fact it takes ages to get off and it has that Lipstick taste that I'm not find on.

My Top Three | Nail Varnish

Today's post is going to be my top three nail polishes that I have been loving recently. I never paint my nails because they're really short but yesterday I applied fake ones and I really loved these colours so I thought I will do a post on them. Since it is autumn I felt like these matched perfectly, especially the middle Barry M one which is more of a purple red colour. It reminded me of Bonfire Night and the fallen leafs. The other Barry M which is the Vanilla Matte shade that I absolutely love. I'm not going to say too much as I did include it in one of my last montly favourites and it does appear in this months favourites again. The last colour is Essie and it doesn't have a name on it but this is a beautiful metallic Blue/grey colour which is a really unique colour that is why it is one of my Favourites. I would recommend buying these as they look beautiful and as I said they match this season incredibly well. This is quite a short post. Comment down below what your favourite nail varnish is and thanks for reading and I hope you enjoyed.

LUSH | Haul

So today I went with my mum and my little sister to Inverness randomly and I knew I would end up going here. We don't have a lush in the area I live so I was obligated to buy bath bombs but this time I didn't buy much as I was limited this time with money but I am still pleased with what I got as I have never had any of these lush bath products. I got two bombs and one bubble bath. 
On the left you can see a typical bath bomb. As I said I have never owned any of these products to I am intreged to see what this turns out like. The Butterball smells exactly like the Lush BB Seaweed Facial I used to own. I'm not too fond on the smell but the look of this bath bomb makes up for it. The bath bomb is all white but it has random specks of colours such as blue, red and yellow. 
Ickle Baby Bot
In the middle you can see this adorable little blue robot. This doesn't look like a typical bath bomb which is probably why I bought it as well as hearing great reviews. The Ickle Baby Bot has a really suttle smell to the point it is almost invisible but I personally think it smells like the Lush shop mainly because it has been left in the Lush shop it has developed the smell of all these different products mashed into one. £1.95
Creamy Candy 
The Creamy Candy is a bubble bar and truth be told I haven't got a clue what a bubble bar is as I have never had one before so I am definitely looking forward to try it out. The smell of this bubble bar is outstanding. It smells really creamy and the smell is quite strong and over powering but in a nice way. Every time I try to sniff it and try identifying the scent I can't. I swear I have smelt this before but I don't recall when or where. I personally love this product the most out of the three things I bought. £2.75

I will probably write a review on these products either together all in one post or in separate posts much later on in the month or maybe next. As I said at least three times now I haven't used any of these so I am quite excited to see how these turn out and if these really are worth buying. Thanks for reading and I hope you enjoyed. What's your Favourite thing from Lush?

Having Acne

So I decided im going to do a post that isn't beauty related because a friend of mine doesn't find them interesting so I decided to write one that he might find interesting. 
I first went to the docoters roughly around January 2015 because people were mocking the condition of my skin which made me a hundred times more self conscious than I already was they my doctor helped me and it took a while until I found the right medication. They first out me on this cream called Acncide 5% which worked for a while but I suddenly started to feel my face burn and my face would swell up to the point I would have to take a day or two off. One time it got so bad I had to stay of for a while and go to the docoters and he said and I quote " bloody hell. It looks as if someone smacked you haha what happened to your face " and as I explained it we found out that the Acncide cream was to strong for my face that I was actually burning my face. This cream removed half my eyebrows and stained a lot of my tops. I went back and he decided to put me on Oct tetracycline as you can see it is in the photo above and he also gave me skinoren cream to use. It started to work immediately after I got it, to the point he took me off it after three months I had FLAWLESS skin. Fair enough I still had a few scars but it wasn't much and my skin didn't look like lumpy sick and I even layed of the junk food and drank more water but obviously things didn't last. My skin towards the summer holiday devolved into some weird mutation. My skin was literally like the surface of the moon it was that bad and because I was traveling to England I didn't have time to go to the docoters so I waited until I got back and I had my appointment on the 9th of this month and he was so disappointed at the fact my acne came back. 
He gave me the same prescriptions and since I have got my stuff I have noticed my skin is clearing up again but as you can see in the photos I took my skin was pretty bad. The forehead view was before the summer but it doesn't really show the full extent of how bad my acne really was.  The two photos of my right cheek and my chin ( they aren't loading so I will have to add them later) is what I took about 20 minutes ago and as you can tell my skin still isn't too good but I know it will take time so I thought I would just write a post on my acne because I know plently of people have acne and it is actually a normal thing. If you or anyone you know has acne I would suggest going to the docoters if you already havent so * cough * TYLER * cough *. 
SKINOREN - you can get this cream of you ask your doctors to prescribe this for you and I'm sure they easily will. 
EPADERM - you can buy this from your local super market maybe or in boots but mine is prescribed but I wouldn't recommend getting the tub version as it makes you're skin feel really gross I would recommend getting the bottle one ( HERE )
OXYTETRACYCLINE - You can ask your docotera to maybe prescribe you this but you would most likely need to book an appointment to see if you really need these.

Sex Bomb | Lush

"When you’ve got that feeling - tired, stressed out and anxious - you need some sensual healing. The fragrant blend of jasmine, ylang ylang and clary sage will soon have you relaxed and feeling in the mood... ."-Lush
I LOVE LOVE LOVE this bath bomb from lush. It smells so good. This is an old photo from when I first got it at like Christmas time from my friend as a present but I used it ages ago but I really wanted to write about it so here I am, writing about it. In the photo you can see in the middle it has pink flower petals. When you put your bath bomb in the bath watching it all fizz and unravel with new and exciting colours you will notice these petals slowly branch off. These petals smell amazing and I love how they just float around the bath. I didn't have my own photo of this bath bomb so I had to use a random one I found on Google images and I found this one which stood out the most because it was more realistic and identical to what my bath looked like after I used this bath bomb. I absolutely adore this bath bomb and I would highly recommend buying one of these as they are AMAZING!

Wake Me Up Foundation

The wake me up foundation is a really good foundation because it is so light yet it had a medium coverage. Because I have dry skin when I don't use moisturiser my skin looks really dry and horrible with this on. I hardily ever wear foundation but since buying this not that long ago I absolutely love it and I used it at least ones a week or if my skin is really bad and impossible to cover. I love the colour scheme with the packaging because it is so bright and in your face but in a subtle way that you don't realise how bright it is. My wakw me up foundation is in the colour 100 ivory because I have really pale skin. The one thing I don't like about this is how after a while it will be your colour then like a week or two it will somehow be darker. I don't know if its just me or just this foundation but it happened a few times which is extremely annoying. On the bottle it says it has " skin brightening vitamin C " with an SPF of 15 which is really good for when the sun is out. The smell of the Wake Me Up Foundation smells REALLY fresh ( It smells like the Rimmel London Match Perfection one ) and absolutely amazing. I don't normally have foundation and I stated but when I used to wear foundation I used the MAYBELLINE FIT me anti -  Shine stick and the Rimmel LLondon match perfection foundation and I absolutely loved these foundation. The Rimmel London match perfection is my all time favourite but I would say tThe Wake Me Up one is my second favourite one. 
In the photo underneath you see The Wake Me Up Foundation and another product I tent to like using with my foundation. This is the New Cid Perfection Colour Adjust Foundation. It just makes your foundation less orange by absorbing it all. The New Cid packaging is really cool. Its pretty mich just a silver tube with a little window strip to see what ia inside it. I love using this for when I docwear foundation and I would recommend buy both of these product's because they're both simple amazing and they work well. Thank you for reading and hope you enjoyed my post on The Wake !e Up Foundation ft New Cid Cosmetics. Comment down below what you think about the Wake Me Up Foundation. Thanks for reading and I hope you enjoyed.

Summer | 2015

Even though summer is nearly now over or it is over for some people ( depending when I post this ) I decided I am going to write a post about my summer or at least just upload photos so I can always look back on this and remember ft corny quote.
