Thre most ‘Lushest’ morning at LUSH


Every girl deserves a bit of luxury, right?

So last Friday me and my sister went shopping to have a little bit of retail therapy. We needed to pick up a few things for our mum for Mothers Day, as well as a good old nose around at the bargains.

We arrived in town quite early, about 9:30am so we could enjoy shopping when it’s not too busy and chaotic. – It’s the best time to go!

Our first port of call was ofcourse LUSH

I think every girl knows how beautiful the smell is in there and at 9:30 in the morning, it was a great way to start out day!

It was lovely and quiet and we couldn’t wait for a good look around at all the new scents and different spring products lining the shelves. The LUSH staff always make you feel so welcome and are so passionate about providing amazing customer service.

We were greeted by Elen who kindly asked if we needed help, which we did! ….Mother’s Day gifts!

We were shown some amazing products that Elen thought would suit our lovely mum (who only takes showers) and tested out the MANY scents and styles.

Drum roll please….

 We chose a limited edition shower gel called ‘Yummy Mummy‘ and an exfoliating soap called ‘Buffy‘ – They were perfect for her and both smell beautiful.

Now, we couldn’t go in to LUSH and not look around ourselves could we? 

Kindly, Elen was so happy to help find some products specifically for us and show us the ones suited to our skin and hair types. 

It was honestly like having a personal shopper, she was so kind and explained all the benefits of the many many products we saw. And here’s the best bit.. 

We sat down around a beautiful table filled with face masks, body scrubs, toners, cleansers and moisturisers ready to test them all!

Every time im here, I just find the presentation of the products outstanding. It creates such an amazing atmosphere for the customer and instantly makes me feel like I’m in a spa!

My sister has combination skin, (I have dry skin) so this face mask is perfect for her. It is filled with blueberries, calamine, chamomile, rose and almond oils. It softens and soothes the skin and is great for soothing red patches whilst hydrating the skin and smelling good enough to eat!

I can honestly say, to be polished and pampered for about an hour in LUSH had to be one of the most relaxing experiences, as well as learning so much beauty-ful information for our skin types from Elen.

Our basket was filled with our gorgeous goodies, we were feeling so relaxed and ofcourse smelling scrumptious. It really set the mood for the rest of our day. I cannot thank the staff enough for there amazing help and knowledge! (Especially Elen)

I left with my delights and could not wait to bring them home to show you beauties as well as giving them a try!

In the Spring and Easter spirit, I bought this cute little guy for £2.50, it’s called ‘Hoppity Poppity‘ and has popping candy inside to fill your bath with beautiful bubbles!

No these are not edible.. Tempting I know! 

I picked up ‘A bunch of carrots’ bubble bars. We were shown how the work and they create so many bubbles for your bath and smells heavenly of lemon, bergamot and Buchu.  You swish them in your bath water and are reusable so they will last ast such a long time!

Shampoo bars!

How amazing are these? I picked up this delicate coconutty slab that was recommended as I have dry hair and a dry scalp. This will nourish and moisturise as well as leaving me smelling like a piña colada!

And lastly, When looking at the face masks for dry skin, Elen recommended this rose scented delight. I tested it out and it left my skin feeling so soft and moisturised. It has seaweed, honey, aloe Vera and rose in the mix and is so soothing and smells so sweet and delicate – perfect for my sensitive skin!

Our morning was perfect! It was actually really lovely to spend this time with my sister and have a bit of a pamper before heading off for some more delights!

So thank you to LUSH Cardiff for our beautiful morning! I’m sure I will be in again very soon! (Maybe tomorrow…..)

What do you think guys? What are your faves from LUSH?

Christmas sale haul!


New year means Christmas sales!!!

I love the Christmas sales… So many amazing bargains!!
Today I went shopping for the first time in ages and I was mesmerised by all of the gorgeous sale and bargain items!

I first went to Primark….. I should say that I am a little bit in love with Primark because their stuff is so cheap with such a wide variety!

And of course there were sale items to be bought so I ran (not literally) straight in and grabbed a shopping basket!

I managed to pick up a gorgeous mustard/ green colour playsuit reduced from £14 to £5…… WINNER!

There were also a lovely pair of dark wash denim jeans with rips in the knees that I just had to buy and they were only £13.

From the home section I picked up a super soft and snuggle brown throw for my bed which was reduced from £7 to £2.50!
I cannot contain my excitement!

I then dragged myself away to the next shop which was paperchase and of course to another sale! I bought a floral letter organiser for £2.50, some new makeup brush and lipstick pots for £2.45 each and the most amazing hand stitched journal for £10 so I can write up all my beauty hints, tips and tricks.



It was only a small haul but nonetheless, AMAZING!

Keep posted for an exciting change.. Coming later…..
