Lush Haul

Lush is one of my obsessions. I find their bath products such a relaxing treat, so whenever I can get my hands on more, I do. Here are some things I recently picked up.

I think I've tried (& loved) pretty much every bath bomb that Lush has to offer. So to mix things up a bit, I steered away from most of my sturdy favourites, (Twilight, Blackberry, Dragon's Egg) and decided to try some bath bombs (and a body butter), that were new to me. I went with Avobath, Phoenix Rising, Honeybee, Butterball (actually an old favourite), and a body butter- King of Skin.

10 Skincare Essentials

10 Skincare Essentials

Once I find a skincare routine, and products, that work well for me, I don't tend to experiment too much. This is mainly due to having very sensitive skin. Therefore, I have tried and tested most of these products for years, and can safely say that I think they are all great. These are the products that I take with me on any trips, and cause me to go into panic mode meltdown if I'm ever without them.

Literature: Beautiful Books

In a digital age where almost everything seems to be online, and efficiency and speed are in high demand, it is sometimes easy to overlook the benefits of buying the physical copy of a book. Why do this when you can download and have it ready to read at the click of a button? (I'm looking at you, Kindle and iPad). I think books are beautiful objects. And sometimes, the exterior of a book can be almost as beautiful as the art within. Here are four books from my collection that I think are aesthetically wonderful. 

The Body Shop: My Favourite Face Masks

The Body Shop | Face Mask Collection

I love love love The Body Shop skincare. In general, the Seaweed and Aloe Vera range work really well with my skin, which is sensitive and combination. But when I want to use a face mask (which is one of my favourite aspects of skin care) I ALWAYS reach for one these.

Holiday Reads: The Miniaturist and Wide Sargasso Sea

I have just got back from a week in gorgeous and sunny Majorca, where I devoured two great books: The Miniaturist by Jessie Burton and Wide Sargasso Sea by Jean Rhys.

The Miniaturist 

It's been a long time since I've come across a book like The Miniaturist; a book that you can't put down and that you can't wait to pick back up again.
