Lush bath bombs

If you know me, you will know I work a very stressful 2 days a week…not stressful in the slightest but I have just had jaw surgery, so let me off. I work in a the type of coffee shop with those coffee shop smells (if you know, you know)! It’s also a cyclists hot-spot, so when I leave I tend to smell like sweaty 70yr old men… not the nicest smell on the planet. (They also wear lycra which sort of burns your eyes, but that’s beside the point)

As a creature of habit, I always have a lush bath bomb on a Sunday evening, just for lols. As I don’t have dreads, I’m not cool enough to work for them, but I have tried the majority of bath bombs they sell. Some are great, some I regret the decision to throw the full thing in. Saying that you should always look at the positives soooo….

Here are my favourite Lush bombs:

  1. The Experimenter (bath bomb) it’s pink and blue and has popping candy. 10/10 insta-ble. oh and it smells incredible!
  2. Intergalactic (bath bomb) Basically you just turn all your lights off then pretend to be Tim Peake. if you are not familiar with real astronauts you can pretend to be buzz lightyear. This one also has glitter so win-win for all.
  3. lava lamp (bath bomb). I can’t find it online but its orange and purple and is the bestest.
  4. karma (bubble bar) simply crumble a little bit under running water (don’t do a me and burn your fingers trying to get gentle crumble video) and sit back and let it send you off into a relaxed place.
  5. the comforter (bubble bar). Bubbles, bubbles, bubbles.
  6. candy mountain– (bubble bar) The best bubble bath ever. simplessss.
  7. razzle dazzle– (bath oil.) If you are not in the mood for anything too extra, try a bath oil. It will leave your skin as soft as a babies bum

We all love a bath bomb video, i’ll refuse to be friends with someone if they don’t put a  classic bath bomb insta-story. One to Four on my list are the fun coloured ones. y’no the ones you shout your family members in to see. yes ellie very impressive, please put a towel on.  Five and six are bubble.. lots of bubbles. For the days you want the film-like bath with the bubbles over flowing and a LARGE glass of wine.

Just remember to rinse the bath afterwards… nobody needs to see that bath bomb grime!


Top 5 favourite beauty products in 2017

The change of the year is a time for reflection; not of what you have achieved but how much money you have spent on beauty products.

Here are what we think are the best beauty products we bought in 2017.

1.BITE BEAUTY. Fruit scrub- whipped cherry.

Remember the smell of Harribo Tangfastics??? Well…this smells just like it! Everything about this products is 10 out of 10. The texture is thick, yet light and whipped. This exfoliator manages to moisturise and remove all that dead skin, yum, in one go. Leaving your lips silky smooth and 100% kissable..form an orderly queue boyyyss.

The scrub came in our bespoke lipstick pack (BITE BEAUTY- Lip Lab)

2.BITE BEAUTY Amuse Bouche lipstick

2017 was the year of liquified lip products. We tried so many.. MAC, Kylie… which cracked on our lips –truly gross. As we are not crackheads, these products were placed to one side and the ultimate liquified product came into view! The Amuse Bouche is incredible! It’s highly pigmented and moisturising, which drys as a satin finish, for us everything you need in a liquid lip! It also smells ammmmaaazzzing, better than mums lasagne! Also, the packaging should be admired, simplicity at its best!

3.NYX neon ultimate

How did we ever created an eye look without this palette??! The build-able shadows add a pop of colour to any look. We adore the pinks and oranges in this palette, we tend to whack a colour through the crease and strut out the door. The best thing about the palette is that it is so wearable…you know… to Waitrose, Wagamamas, Waikiki..wherever you go, you’ll be best in show.

4.KAT VON D ‘everlasting’ liquid lip

I think this product is still on mads’ lip…. its been 4 weeks. The swatch is definitely still on her hand! This doesn’t move, crack or change in colour. It is amazing for a nightout- no matter how many toffee vodka shots you have, it won’t budge..kind of like that guy that bought you the drink.  seriously bbz back off. I don’t want you, just wanted a drink x. Great value for money- thanks Bex!!!

5.Eylure X Fleur de Force lashes

Eylure have a massive range of lashes, ranging from garden party to ‘I’m a stripper’. Girls Aloud brought out a range; a collaboration which lasted longer than their careers. But the BEST eylure lashes are the Fleur de Force collaboration. She’s the best and so are these! The glue can be a bit hit-and-miss so buy some Duo and you’ll be fine!! Our favourites from the range are the ‘green’ and the ‘purple’. The Green ones are 3/4 length, lightweight, great for enhancing the cat-eye. The purple ones are for the party girls. i.e. Maddey, still lightweight but these have the WOW factor! although she has recently upgraded and uses HUDA’re welcome mads. xox

So, we can all raise our glasses and toast to spending waaaay too much in 2018. Remember if you feel good, you look good!
