Vaseline Spray & Go Body Moisturiser Review

Hello Everybody,
It's another review again, but that is because if you are reading this right now I am actually helping my Dad at a cub camp. I will either be outside in the cold or telling cubs to be quiet right this very moment *oh, the power of scheduling*. Although, I absolutely love it. It's great because when I was a little cub scout I remember looking up to the young leaders, and thinking that they were such fun to be around, and I like to think that they look at me in the same way. So, through the moans and annoyances of the cubs I love it really.
Anyway, back to the review. I was always very excited about the whole concept of Vaseline's Spray & Go moisturiser, but I kept forgetting to go out and buy some. Finally, *almost a month ago* I bought some. Firstly, I should tell you that I got mine in cocoa radiant flavour. This moisturiser smells amazing, and as much as it pains me to say it, it smells even nicer than The Bodyshop's cocoa butter body butter. I would compare the smell to milk chocolate, galaxy to be exact. Of course, it is cocoa so it is sort of meant to smell of chocolate, but it isn't so strong that it gives you a headache, so the scent of this moisturiser is definitely just right for me.
The idea of the Spray & Go design is that you spray the moisturiser on, about 10cm away from you body, and then very quickly rub it in. Of course, because you have already sprayed on the product it doesn't need to be rubbed in that much.
The great thing about this moisturiser is that it moisturises and absorbs in seconds; instantly leaves the skin soft and not sticky or greasy; dispenses evenly with one all over spray. I love using this product on my elbows and other places that get considerable dry in the winter months, apart from the face because it is not designed for that. But, I am also thoroughly looking forward to testing this moisturiser out in the summer because I think that it'll be very cooling and good for the skin after being out in intense sunlight and heat all day.

Lush Review- Catastrophe Cosmetic

Hello Everybody,
At last I have my laptop back after a bit of a blip, although on my twitter you may have heard a few grumbles. Basically, although all of my pictures have been backed up, they haven't been put back onto my my laptop at this point in time. Unfortunately, this means that some of the posts that I have had planned have to be on a bit of a delay. The reason why some of my pictures have not been put back onto my laptop is because of the amount of time they were going to take to put back on, but my Dad has promised me that because he has next week off work, he will get them back onto my computer. This is also great because that means everything will be back in working order ready for my Birthday next week.
I cannot actually believe it, a week on Sunday I will be turning sixteen. Is it just me, or does sixteen sound so much older than fifteen? Of course, my birthday will have no relevance to you guys whatsoever, but this is more of me warning you that I do get very excited. Also, with that being said Christmas is only just around the corner, and I am going shopping for my presents on Wednesday night. Although, I've already bought my Secret Santa present, and I cannot wait for them to see what they have got (I cannot reveal anything because a few of my friends may be reading this). Also, I feel very obliged to wish any American readers a Happy Thanksgiving, and because I do not celebrate it, I was be thinking of you in full envy whilst I am eating my usual dinner, and you are all enjoying Turkey, massive teas and family festivities.
After what I believe has been one of my longest introductions ever *could you tell I've been inside all day and not had any sociable interaction?* I will get on with my review... Today I am going to be reviewing one of Lush's fresh face masks called Catastrophe Cosmetic.
Now, I am going to try and type this up as fast as possible because this face mask is actually meant to be kept in the fridge, but because the fridge is miles *I exaggerate, before anyone starts thinking I live in an old haunted mansion* from my bedroom it is quite rapidly melting on my bedside table.
In fact, so I can quickly run this amazing little product back to the fridge, I am going to tell you what the pot says, 'When disaster looms,Catastrophe Cosmetic calms and cleanses the skin. Blueberries rich in beneficial anti-oxidants, soothing chamomile, Irish moss and the gentle cleansing action of calamine to save the day.'  *Quickly runs to the fridge with a dripping pot of blueberry sludge*. I am going to be honest with you and say that I has never actually used a face mask before I bought this, but I am so glad I have tried one now.
Catastrophe Cosmetic genuinely is a saviour for my skin. All you have to do is leave it on for five to ten minutes and instantly your skin feels smoother and ultimately nicer. Not only that, but I do not break out after using this, and I actually believe it gets rid of my blemishes. My favourite part of the product is the feeling of my face once the mask is removed, my face feels tight, and healthy, but you'll have to try it yourself to fully understand what I mean. Not to mention the smell of Catastrophe Cosmetic, if you are a lover of blueberries and fruity things, you will love this product.
You can buy this Catastrophe Cosmetic at Lush for £5.95 which although this does seem like a lot of money for a face mask, I reckon you could probably get about 5 face mask sessions from it. Also, as I am going shopping next week, I am definitely thinking about picking up another one, although, I'm not sure I'll be picking up Cosmetic Warrior in a hurry, I undoubtedly do not want my face to stink of garlic.

NOTD and a HUGE apology

Hello Everybody,
Basically my laptop is currently sitting on its death bed, with my dad trying his ultimate best to save it *imagine a man in his mid forties giving a laptop CPR*. No, but in all seriousness, hopefully it'll be all reformatted and as good as new by tomorrow so I can keep my school work up and be less bored after school. 

I hope you can all understand why this post is going to be hurried and have pictures of poor quality, because let's face it, phone cameras were never designed for us bloggers. My rant about broken laptops and poor quality posts aside I thought I would do a quick and easy NOTD post. 
Currently, in Glamour Magazine's December edition, costing £2 they have the full sized nail polishes as their freebee. But, the nail polish isn't any ordinary one, it is a Nails inc one from the Kate Spade collection, normally retailing at £11. Me being me and wanting to snap up a bargain decided to buy two magazines as both colours that in chose really tickled my fancy.
The first colour is Soho silver, which is a beautiful shimmery metallic silver colour, and perfectly on trend this autumn. The next colour (which I am using as an accent colour) is called uptown glamour. This is a gorgeous gold colour and really reminds me of Christmas. Overall, these polishes are of great quality, and really do dry fast, thus perfect for applying in a hurry before a party. 
Again I am massively sorry for the bad quality of this post, and hopefully I will get my laptop back as soon as possible, so everything will go back to normal.

L'oreal Paris Nude Magique Eau De Teint review.

Hello Everybody,
Now, I've actually had this L'oreal foundation in my possession for a while now, but me being me took a while to decide what I really thought about it. Obviously, I couldn't do a review on a product that I had only tried once, and I had to have a proper opinion on the product first.
Firstly, can we just take a moment to admire how beautiful the packaging is? The cuboid frosted glass shape makes the bottle look so elegant and classy. Not only that, but it makes that foundation look a whole lot more expensive. The only issue with the packaging is the screw top lid. I know so many people have moaned about the hygiene issues with this style of lid, but personally, that isn't my issue with it. I do not see why it is unhygienic as long as you wash your hands before application. My issue with the screw top lid is that I can now only put the foundation onto my index finger, when I used to put one pump of foundation onto that back of my hand, and believe me, I tried that and made a bit of a mess.
The next thing I want to talk about is coverage, the coverage is quite light, and therfore doesn't hide blemishes, but used with a good concealer it isn't bad at all. Also, the semi-matte finish leaves my skin feeling silky smooth and means that there is no need to put on powder if I'm in a bit of a hurry *yes, I did have to have a shower, hair wash and get ready for a party in twenty minutes today*. Another wonderful thing about the Eau de teint is the lighter than water technology. Evidently this means that the foundation doesn't clog your pores and leaves a no makeup feel. I thought the foundation felt so weird when I was blending it in for the first time, because it felt like it had disappeared on my face although, you could still see the foundation was on there.
All in all, I really like the L'oreal Paris Nude Magique Eau De Teint, and it was definitely justifiable getting it for the introductory price of £6.99, but I'm not overly sure I will repurchase it again for £9.99, and I may go back to my trusty Rimmel London Match Perfection foundation, or try something else.
Enjoy the rest of your weekend,

#2014BloggerChallenge

Hello Everybody,
The other day I decided that I wanted to try something new and exciting for my blog next year, and I know I am planning some exciting things *exciting for me* for my blog. Basically, I was searching twitter late at night the other day when I came across the #2014bloggerchallenge. The whole concept of this challenge thoroughly thrilled me, and I thought to myself, why not get involved Emily?
I went to look at the original post of the blogger whose brains are behind this formidable idea. Her name is Gaby, and the original post is here if you want to see what it's all about, but I will try and explain it the best I can myself.
The basic idea of the #2014bloggerchallenge is that the bloggers involved will be challenged to write a post, twice a month about a chosen and given subject. The posts will go live every 1st and 3rd week of the month and anybody that signs up will be emailed with the given subject.
I think the thought process behind this fantastic idea is incredible, because it is basically designed to increase blog traffic, help you discover new blogs and potentially make new friends with bloggers you never knew existed.
As you can tell I am so excited about this challenge, and cannot wait for what 2014 has to bring. If you want to get involved and sign up for this challenge send your blog URL, email address and name to Gaby's email in order to get involved. I hope as many of you as possible get involved with this, and are as excited as I am.
Also I would like to add, if there is anything any of you are desperate to see from my blog in the new year, I am open to recommendations because I love to hear what my readers want to see from me.
Finally, don't forget to check out Gaby's blog www.anothergirlyblg.blogspot.co.uk

Just chill!!

Hello Everybody,
Have you every wondered what it's like to relax? How to feel calm? And what life would be like with out the chocka lifestyles we're living now? Me too, it didn't occur to me until quite recently that school, friendships and everything in between was really stressing me out. But, now if you see me you're probably thinking, "How did she suddenly become so much calmer?".
I'm definitely not saying I'm the most chilled out person on the block because believe me, I get butterflies like nobodies business before exams, but I'm certainly better then I was. I honestly think what made me notice that I was the nervous and unchilled type was others around me making me feel the need to snap, or not being able to cope with other peoples problems.
One way I find it easier to be calmer is to breathe. Obviously, we all breathe because otherwise we would be blue and collapsed in a heap on the floor, but when we are stressed our heart rate goes up, and we either find ourselves panting for breath, or even holding it. Sometimes, when we feel that burning fire of uneasiness we just need to take a long deep breath *sigh*. This can suddenly make things so much easier, bring us down to reality, and often in my case remind myself that I'm not the only one going through a busy and sometimes fast paced lifestyle.
Meditation also seems to work for me. I sit on the floor with my legs tucked up and my feet flat on the floor. I take a deep breath in, and as I am breathing out, I will say to myself "I feel at peace". I know this sounds like the weirdest thing ever to do, but some how it leaves me feeling relaxed, calm and focused on doing well, and not even feeling that slightest bit of tension in my body. I do this for a couple of minutes each morning and evening and it is something that I have only recently started doing but I can already notice a difference in my mindset.
The next thing I am going to talk about is listening to music. So many people say that listening to music really chills them out, but to be honest, they can only be correct in some circumstances. Often, especially when we are nervous, our heart rate will try and match the beat of the music. That's why if you are feeling on edge for whatever reason listening to something at 100bpm is probably not going to keep your heart rate down, and therefore not keep yourself calm. You need to listen to music with a beat of 60-80 per minute, because this matches the average resting heart rate, and therefore leaves us feeling more chilled. I often listen to something like, Mirrors by Justin Timberlake, because that is 80bpm and I find it makes me feel prepared yet chilled for a hockey game or something similar.
I am going to be honest with you now and say that sometimes things won't be easy, and I'm not going to lie and say that things haven't got on top of me recently, because it was only a month ago that I made a fool of myself and cried on a hockey pitch. Yes, I did cry because I was stressed and people were having a go at me. But, today I realise that I needed that, to make me realise that I did look like a fool, but also that it is okay to express ourselves sometimes, although maybe not wear our hearts on our sleeves so much.
You should feel like it's okay to talk to people, because it will help. If you've got a problem at school, tell a teacher. If you just want a hug, hug your bestfriend or closest family member, because sure thing everyone have felt overloaded at some point in their lives too. But don't forget, sometimes you have to step back and, "Just chill". At the end of the day stress is just an emotion, but learning how to cope with it is important.
I hope I helped some of you realise today, that stepping back to relax sometimes is just as important as getting things done. Talk to you on Thursday.

Bodyshop Hand Cleanse Gel

Hello Everybody,
I'm doing another Bodyshop review believe it or not. This review I am so excited to do because it is a product that I have repurchased and will again, and again, and again. Also, I cannot even think of a single negative about this product, so this review may become a bit biased and one sided, but honestly, I love this that much.
For some reason the camera wanted to focus on the bag and not the hand gel.
This product is the Bodyshop hand cleanse gel, with has been a staple item in my school bag, and I guess I am a little bit obsessed with it. Lets just say, schools are probably the most dirty and germy places ever, especially now that it is cold and flu season. To me sanitising my hands before eating is important because I hate getting ill, and I'm sure so does everyone else. If you are as observant as me then you will notice that in a day we probably touch a handrail at least four times a day at school, and door handles even more so. Then we share equipment, etc and the amount of people that have also been to these places before us means, that yucky stuff is probably on our hands by lunchtime.
I'm not like a massive germophobe, I'm just hygienic, I guess.
Also, in the toilets, I don't know whether it is just my school but there is so many people standing at the sink fixing their hair, and reapplying their makeup (FYI girls, you are beautiful enough, you don't need to put on any more). For this reason, people that have actually gone to the toilet can't get to the sinks for their true use, and therefore it's a lot less hassle getting my hand gel out of my bag. Also, the hand dryers at school let out less air than me after I've ran five miles.
The Bodyshop hand cleanse gel is in the coconut flavour, and I literally get so many comments about it. Or if someone walks into the loo after I've used it people often say, "It smells nice in here." And I'm pretty sure that's because of my hand sanitiser. I also recommend the pink grapefruit one. They retail at £2 .50, and I know that is a little more expensive than an ordinary hand gel, but for a nice smell rather than an alcoholic smell, it is definitely worth it.

Mittens on strings and matching scarves

Hello Everybody,
 It's been quite a long time since I have done a fashion post, and I am hoping to do some more outfit of the days in the near future, but for today I am going to be doing a post about mittens on string and matching scarves. I really love mittens and scarfs but I've been hanging it out for as long as possible before I wore any because I wanted to feel the benefit when it actually got cold. Actually, that's a lie, I wear scarves all year round, but my mittens have only just made it out of my wardrobe this year, as where I live it's starting to become a little bit frosty.
Mittens always look super cute anyway, and they keep your hands super warm. Apart from the inconveniences of only having a usable thumb, with the rest of your fingers restricted, mittens to me always look a little bit more fashionable. I like to look quite girlie, so fairisle patterned mittens are definitely more me then a pair of plain black gloves, but I will give it to you, magic gloves are pretty clever.
Last year, or maybe the year before I bought some blue and off white fairisle mittens on string, on a whim. In fact, I thought the string would be really annoying and look totally childish. The string actually makes the mittens look awfully cute when they are dangling out of your coat. Also, if you need to take them off to text somebody you don't need to hold then in your mouth (don't pretend you don't do it) because the string means that they don't need holding.
With my mittens I have a matching scarf with cute little tassles on the end. Together the mittens and scarf look super duper festive and really finish off an outdoorsy outfit. Not only that, but they make me feel slightly nostalgic, reminding me of my toddler years, and my dad tugging me around on the sledge and pushing me down the hill, just because mittens on strings and matching scarves are something nearly all of us had when we were three, and making snowmen in my garden (I'm not saying that I don't do that now).
What do you think of mittens on strings and matching scarves?

Late night post and a rant about trees...

Hello Everybody,
If you follow me on twitter you would have seen me apologise and say that I am doing my blog post tomorrow as I am far to busy tonight, but I felt so bad that I have decided to do a late night rant instead whilst sitting here with my smelly hockey gear on. As you may or may not know I am currently in year 11 which is my final GCSE year and my mocks are coming up really soon. With that in mind I kind of forgot to write a post tonight, but I love blogging so much, and it gives my brain a break, so I will continue posting Tuesday's, Thursday's and Saturday's, and will try my best not to forget.
Today I had a bit of catering work to do, which seems to be absolutely taking over my life right now, and I'm pretty sure my deadlines on Monday (shoot me now) so that has occupied a lot of my time. Also tonight I had to finish off a French essay, yes, in French, and do a bit of geography research. Although, I also seemed to take a lot of time planning my Nan's 70th birthday cake, which I really can't wait to make and definitely will do a post on once completed.
Sorry about the glare on the picture, is was taken through a window.
Anyway, a rather strange and philosophical thought has been whizzing around my mind today, and it is about trees. They're such beautiful and unique things, not one tree is the same, every leaf is in a different place and they all have slightly different colours. Trees are sort of like humans, it's their differences that make them beautiful, and their imperfections that make them more interesting and captivating.
Trees bring enjoyment to lives, from providing us with clean air, to giving a little bird a home. But, it's the lonely trees that interest me the most. I'm not crazy, because I know trees don't have feelings but when a tree is on it's own it reminds me that some people are like that also. Yet some how something about the lonely tree seems more emotional than a tree in a forest, they have that pull that makes you want to go and sit under it, just for a moment because it's so peaceful. Why don't we feel this way for lonely humans? Why don't we approach the lonely girl sitting in the school canteen? It's just a food for thought, don't be afraid to approach someone on their own in the lunch hall, the worst they can do is tell you to go away. The likelihood is though, that the lonely person is the most caring and wonderful person you will ever meet, maybe shy, but there is probably a reason. You wouldn't ignore the lonely tree (or at least I wouldn't) so don't ignore the lonely person.
Another thing is that hopefully one day I will teach myself to paint trees because they have the most wonderful stories behind them, and are the most captivating things that I can thinks of. I could talk for hours about trees, but I'm not because that will probably bore you all to death, I know my friends already think I've lost the plot (sorry guys, if you are reading this).

Lush- Popcorn Lip Scrub review

Hello Everybody,
I guess a lot of you have already read a lot of the Popcorn Lip Scrub reviews but the other day I bought one for myself to see what all of the hype was about, and all I can see is WOW! I really love this little lush product and it certainly does its job.
I think I will start off with the negative first and that is the price, it is £5.25, which I suppose is quite a lot for a bit of fancy flavoured sugar in a pot. Other than that though the price doesn't bother me too much because the pot is pretty big and I can imagine it lasting me a while. If money grew on trees I would definitely go out and buy the Santa one, which is cola flavoured, but over £10 on lip scrubs is a bit excessive.
The reason why I got this one instead of the Bubblegum one is obviously because it was Popcorn flavoured and I love popcorn, as some of you may as well know. The great thing about this flavour is that it really does taste like popcorn.
The way the Popcorn lip scrub works is that you have to scrub and buff it onto your lips and then when you are fully satisfied you just lick it off and apply your favourite lip balm afterwards. This leaves your lips feeling smooth and silky and gets rid of all of that rubbish dead chapped stuff that comes to haunt us in these chillier months. Not only that, but it leaves your lips tasting really yummy afterwards.
Overall, I am really loving this product because it has definitely made lips seems so much nicer this cold November. Paired with my Nivea lip butter my lips feel totally smooth and wonderful. I am certainly happy with this product and it is worth every penny, especially the fact that it is quite a large pot.

Sweater Weather Tag

Hello Everybody,
I know, I know, this tag is going to be very similar to my I Love Autumn Tag, but I promise you it's not. Now technically I haven't actually been tagged to do this, but I saw it and thought it was pretty cool. I am tagging everyone that reads this, so if you what to get involved don't be afraid to stick your links in my comments.
1. Favourite candle scent?
My favourite Candle scent is the Christmas Cupcake Yankee candle. I know that it isn't actually Christmas yet, but the smell makes me think of warm bakeries. Also, this candle smells quite autumnal, so it isn't too festive yet.
2. Coffee, tea, or hot chocolate?
I am a big fan of mocha, especially Starbucks Salted Caramel mocha, but to be fair I am going to answer this question straight. I prefer hot chocolate, and my favourite has to be my Milka hot chocolate. The other day I put a teaspoon of peppermint essence in my hot chocolate to make it taste a bit more festive, it tasted amazing.
3. What's the best fall memory you have?
Firstly, I call it Autumn and not fall, but hey ho! Anyway, I don't really have any specific autumn memories, but I guess having friends round and watching the fireworks we did from my bedroom window. I never went outside because I found them quite scary, but I vividly remember being totally cosy and watching the colourful explosions. Also, I always remember eating yummy hot dogs whilst watching the fireworks too.
4. Which makeup trend do you prefer: dark lips or winged eyeliner?
I prefer dark lipstick, but I think that colour just be because I'm not very good at applying eyeliner, because I have a really twitchy eyelid.
5. Best fragrance for fall?
My favourite fragrance for autumn has got to be Victoria Secret's vanilla and blackcurrant body spray. Obviously it has a nice warming wintery scent to it, but the blackcurrant keeps it feeling quite warm and yummy.
6. Favourite Thanksgiving food?
Urmm... Considering I live in England I don't actually celebrate thanksgiving, but the thought of it makes me fancy some Red Velvet Cupcakes.
7. What is autumn weather like where you live?
The autumn weather where I live is fairly cold, always cloudy, often raining and leaves are blanketed absolutely everywhere.
8. Most worn sweater?
My most worn sweater is a cream one with pastel coloured speckles in it from H&M, I literally live in it!
9. Must-have nail polish this fall?
I don't really have one yet, but I am dying to buy a nice burgundy colour soon, because that seems to be very on trend at the moment.
10. Football games or jumping in leaf piles?
Ew, football games! I suppose I'd have to choose jumping in leaf piles.
11. Skinny jeans or leggings?
Skinny jean because leggings either go see through, and you have to be careful the you can't see your knickers through the leggings. The only time I wear leggings is if I am wearing something that is covering my bum.
12. Combat boots or Uggs?
Combat boots, because I find Uggs to weird, especially as they are designed to be worn without socks, could you imagine the pong after wearing furry boots without socks all day?
13. Is pumpkin spice worth the hype?
Probably not, because I have never heard of it. Is it an American thing?
14. Favourite fall TV show?
I don't watch tonnes of TV, but 'I'm a Celebrity Get Me Out of Here' is on soon and I reckon that will become a favourite. At the moment I'm not loving anything since Great British Bake Off finished.
15. What song really gets you into the fall spirit?
Definitely Chocolate by The 1975, listen to it here.

Always look on the bright side of life (8)

Hello Everybody,
Today has been a rather eye opening day for me, so for this reason I am more in the mood to chat to my readers rather than do anything beauty related. I know that my beauty posts seem to get looked at more than my lifestyle posts, but today I am just in the mood to let things spill out of my brain. So many emotions have been felt all in one day, but some how I seem to be enjoying it. I've felt scared, anxious, apprehensive, empathetic, proud, excited, confused and last but not least, happy.
There are so many things in life that we can be miserable about, whether it be friends being unhappy, exams or even just that teenage mood swing. Although, today I have also realised that there are so many good things to be happy about.
The main thing that has made me smile today is you guys. As I went onto my  blog just a moment ago thinking that not much would have happened on it today, considering I hadn't uploaded a new post yet, I realised so many people had looked at it. To be honest, the amount of followers I get and the amount of pageviews I get never bothers me because I enjoy blogging no matter how many people look at it. But, when I see that people are looking at my blog and supporting it of course it makes me smile. I'm still a small blog,  but even that small amount of support excites me. Looking back on it, when I started my blog in May I'd never even thought that I'd be posting three times a week, having so many pageviews and even having at least one follower.
I also think what has made me smile today is knowing that I was able to help out a friend. When I see my friend unhappy I can't leave them without a word, I took the time to go to her house, talk it through and at the end make her smile again. Not only that, but the sweet texts you can get from them after can really turn your day around.
Obviously, this is less than half of what happened today, but I felt like it would be boring to share the rest. Although, the point of this post was for me to tell you guys that no matter how awful a day is, there is bound to be part of it that was great. So remember, always look on the bright side of life, no matter how bad your day was.

Lush, Boots, Bodyshop and Miss Selfridge Haul

Hello Everybody,
The other day me and a couple of my bestfriends (Emily and Katie) went shopping, as I mentioned on Thursday's post. Clearly, I thought it would be unfair telling you that without showing you what I bought, so here is a little haul for you. I didn't manage to get a jumper that I had loved the look of, but all in all I think I had a pretty successful shopping trip and had a really good day.
The places I bought things from were, Miss Selfridge, Boots, Bodyshop and Lush. Of course, I also had a good old McDonalds whilst there too, but I'm sure you really aren't that bothered about the junk food that landed in my stomach on my day out.
The first place I went was Boots and I bought Vaseline Spray&Go moisturizer in cocoa butter, because I want to see what all the hype is about. I also bought another Maybelline New York Colour Tattoo in the colour Metallic Pomegranate because I thought it was a pretty autumnal colour for the crease. Also, I thought I could add to the haul something I bought a few weeks before which is L'oréal Paris Nude Magique Eau De Teint, which I've heard mixed reviews about, but I couldn't miss the introductory offer, and so far I really like it.
Next I went to Bodyshop to get a new Hand Cleanse Gel because the Pink Grapefruit one I take to school needs replacing. This time I decided to go for cocnut, I could've got a cheaper ordinary hand sanitizer but I am willing to pay £2.50 for a hand sanitizer that doesn't smell of alcohol.
After that I went to Miss Selfridge and bought a mustard cable knit snood. I bought this because it looks warm and I think the colour goes with a lot of item in my wardrobe.
Finally I went into Lush and bought a few bits as I haven't treated myself to anything from there in ages. First of all I got the Catastophe Cosmetic face mask, because it's meant to be really good for blemishes, as my chin is causing me a little bit of trouble lately. I then bought the Popcorn lip scrub, and it is literally amazing. The idea is that you buff your lips with the scrub and then lick off the excess, and apply a lip balm. What sold this product to me was that it tastes of popcorn, and I love popcorn. The last thing I bought from Lush was the Luxury Lush Pud, which is super cure because it looks like a Christmas Pudding, and according to the shop assisstant it looks really pretty in the bath. Also, the Luxury Lush Pud, smells really sweet but also has a nice hint of lavender in it.
