Experimenting in Lush!

I've been to Lush! Not all this time... but a good portion of it...
It seems I was on a mission to try some new products on this particular shopping trip. I have always wanted to try Lush's dry shampoo and at first inspection it smells pretty good so I can't wait to start using that! I've also heard great reviews about the Angels on Bare Skin cleanser, it's supposed to be great for sensitive skin and I've got the most sensitive skin around so I'll be the judge of that!
I've also always eyed up the toothpaste tabs, they seem like such a good way of saving plastic waste, I'll let you know how I get on with them...
I've linked all the products below the pictures if you want to find out more, let me know if you've tried any of these bits and what you thought :)

P.s. I haven't tried any of these products yet, but it seems my boyfriends helped himself to some of the strawberry shaving cream...

Lush Christmas

Although he's lost his little nose, he's still very cute! This is a bath melt so it is packed full of essential oils and if it's anything like the other lush bath melts I've used, will leave skin so soft and smelling lovely! It is made of almond oil and cocoa butter and has a lovely Christmassy smell which is made up of cinnamon leaf oil, clove leaf oil and sweet orange oil. I'm saving this one to use nearer to Christmas! 

This is a bath bomb containing popping candy and cinnamon leaf oil to recreate the warmth of an open fire (according to the lush website...) This smells really similar to the melting snowman, Christmassy and lovely!

Bubble bars are my favourite lush bath product because you can crumble a little bit off and spread it out between at least 3 baths! This looks amazing but the glitter transfers on the everything, so if you're not a fan of glittery hands, clothes and face you may prefer another one! This contains Patchouli oil, persian lime oil, clove oil and sweet orange oil, so as you can imagine, it smells pretty damn good. 

This is one of my favourites! I love anything apple scented, although I'm not sure what apples have to do with Christmas but I love it anyway. It's pink inside and lets off a lovely rose scent as its fizzing away. FAVE.

This has a very sweet scent made up of mandarin and bergamot oil. It smells a bit like refreshers! Definitely a little treat for Christmas eve!

This is a Christmassy bear shaped version of the Butterball bath bomb. Containing cocoa butter, cocoa powder and ylang ylang oil its really nourishing leaving skin feeling so soft.

You Beauty Box | November

I don't know about you but I absolutely love getting post. I'm really enjoying this beauty subscription box because I forget all about it and then I get a surprise delivery! (And I'm not worrying about the surprise direct debit because it's only £6!) I always make sure the first thing I do on the first of the month is log in to my You beauty Discovery account and choose my two items before the best ones run out! This month I chose a Skin & Tonic London Steam Clean and Magnifibres brush on false lashes! So as you can imagine I was very excited to open it up and play with my new toys! But not before I took blog photos...

I've never heard of Skin & Tonic so I had a google and was very impressed with their organic ingredients and sustainable ways so I was really excited to have this feature in my November box! It's thistle, eucalyptus and spearmint so as you can imagine it smells really fresh and light. It can be used as a nourishing balm or a cleanser. You're meant to rub it in to your face and neck and then place a hot cloth over your skin to cleanse using the steam. I can't wait to give it a try! 

I've been meaning to try this for ages, false lashes without the glue and fuss, so as soon as I saw this was a choice this month I snapped it up! It looks kind of odd at first glance but I've heard good things so I'm very excited to give it a try, I'll keep you posted! (Check my instagram for the results!)

                                  Merumaya Skincare Samples
I'm always a bit dubious about trying new skincare because my skin is so sensitive! One wrong move and I could be suffering for weeks with blotchy skin. What I've read about this brand puts me at ease slightly, natural ingredients like sweet almond oil sounds lovely and gentle. 

This is a fruit powder designed to be added to smoothies, sprinkled on top of cereal or mixed in with your yoghurt to give you an added boost of essential vitamins. Sounds like just what I need during a cold November!

What did you choose for your box this month?

The Rectory Hotel | Upgrades, cocktails and exploring the Cotswolds

A few weeks ago me and Craig had a couple of days off work together so we took a little look a Mr and Mrs Smith and booked up a spontaneous getaway. We went to the Cotswolds and stayed in The Rectory Hotel which was THE most beautiful place I've ever stayed! 
We got an upgrade to the Cleeve room which was amazing. (I have added window seat to my list of what I want in a house...) 
I took lots of photographs so I could share the beauty of it all...

Booking through Mr and Mrs Smith gets you two free cocktails too!
