So I know I had said that I would post this last week but I never got the chance! So I have a triple haul for you. I have some homewares, some beauty related items, and some of my favourites, LUSH items (yay!).
So I think I'd like to start with ,my homewares. I went to Sur La Table with my Mum because she wanted some new placemats and napkins, she was growing tired of the ones we have. But, while wandering about I found a few things of my own, and before I new it I was at the register paying for it all.
So the first thing I bought was this super cute porcelain kitchen utensil container (holder, pot, jar?). I don't really know why I decided to buy it since I won't be living on my own anytime soon.... But it was just so cute. I thought in the mean time I can use it as a vase, or like to hold my hair brushes, and such.
I also bought four egg cups. I bought two with red and two with blue. And now I'm wondering if I should've gotten them all in red or all in blue.... Hmmmmm. Oh we'll they're super cute and I love toast and dippy egg and I was definitely looking for some new egg cups :)
I also found this really cute new coffee or tea or cocoa mug that I just thought was adorable. Besides, you can never have too many mugs.
On to the beauty department!
I went to the body shop and purchased their cleansing balm. I had used a friend's and fell in LOVE with it! I can't believe I had never bought or used it before!!! It smells so nice and it just works so well.
I also bought two born lippys in watermelon, and strawberry. These. Smell. So. Good. I just want to eat them. The watermelon, which is the one on the top, smells just like watermelon jolly ranchers. And the strawberry smells just like the hard boiled jam filled strawberry sweets I used to get when I was little. Absolutely obsessed with these. The strawberry give a really nice light pink tint to your lips with the watermelon goes on sheer.
My favourite bit!! LUSH.
So I was pretty much empty on my stash, and decided to do a bit of restocking of some basics.
I got three bath bombs, the Dragon's Egg, Blackberry, and Ickle Baby Bot. They all smell so lovely and nice.
I also got two limited edition bubble bars.
I purchased the Wonder Woman bubble bar, with their new and improved glitter, that is biodegradable and seaweed based so it no longer kills fish. :) I also got the rose bubble bar that I can't remember the name of now and that really bugs me, but it smells like you've walked straight into a rose garden. It's so nice.
So it has been a very stressful week so far and I really needed to relax. So I decided to have a bit of a pamper evening. I have run a bath, and I'm using the very last of my White Christmas Bath Box from LUSH. I know, I can't believe I lasted this long either. I've saved my favourite Christmas bath bomb until now which is the Luxary Lush Christmas Pud, and it makes your bath look like Ribena. It's so pretty!! And I've used my fairy wand bubble bar as well, because I just feel as though a pamper evening isn't complete with out some bubbles. :) I've also put a scoop of Epsom salts in to relax all my muscles. Ahhhhhhh, so relaxing.
I'm just going to lay in my bath with some Grey's Anatomy, my favourite candle, and use some grapefruit body butter from the body shop to make my skin extra soft after.
I hope this has inspired you to have a nice little de-stresser, or a pamper evening of your own. :)
Oh my goodness. Three months, give or take a few days, has literally flown by.
Since the last time you all heard from me, I have committed to the University of Arizona, gone through my school musical, taken my finals, graduated from high school, gone to orientation, registered for classes, and gone on holiday. Whew.
And I just feel awful. I have neglected this blog for three months. I also never did half of the things promised in my last post. :( I promise, I have got a post saved in my drafts on three super easy braided hair styles. I'm going to try and get that posted within the week. If I don't it will get posted by next week when I'm home from holiday.
I've also got a homeware/kitchenware haul soon. I went to Sur La Table, and found some absolutely perfect things.
So long for now,
Much love & Glitter,
Ps. I'm thinking of changing the way I sign off from my blogs.... Might be trying some new things in e coming posts.
PPs. So've just looked over that drafted post, and there is no way I can post it this week. I don't have all the things I need due to me being on holiday. :( I'll try to do a haul this week.
