A Lush Christmas – Blogmas Day 22

I am a massive fan of Lush. I love the smell of their products and the way it makes my skin and hair feel after use. I have quite sensitive skin so when I use their shampoo and conditioners, it never irritates my scalp.

I popped in to the Bath store recently to pick up a couple of gifts for Christmas. This is what I chose:


Christmas Angel Bath Bomb
With some of my favourite scents including cocoa butter, almond oil and spearmint this pretty pink angel looks and smells delicious. I am not a huge fan of baths but I think something frothy and luxurious like this may possibly convert me!

Snow Fairy
This snow fairy set contains the shower gel, which is one of my most-loved skin care products. It also has a ‘make your own snow fairy’ bar which has multiple uses as a sort of dough that can be used as bubble bath, shampoo, soap or just to create little figures.

The Magic of Christmas
How cute is this reusable bath bar? It is a wand with a cinnamon stick to hold. It is glittery with cloves, a dinky little bell in the shape of star. I think it is ideal as a little stocking filler or part of a set of bath and beauty gifts.

Lastly, I chose two Santa products, one body butter bar and the other a Peeping Santa Bubble Bar just to give a cute extra gift.

Do you have any favourite Christmas products from Lush? Bx

What a Load of Baubles! – Blogmas Day 7

Forget Santa. Forget Rudolf and definitely forget those pesky Elves. 2016 is the year of the baubles! The bigger the better. And no, before you lot out there with dirty minds think I am being rude, I am talking about Christmas baubles that adorn the tree.


The picture above is of the gigantic bauble in town (Bath, UK). Over the last few Christmases, the tree has always been there and now it finally has a buddy. From the moment the children and I saw it, we were pretty excited. It makes town seem so much more Christmassy than in previous years and it is a lot of fun for the kids.

I also have a baubles Christmas jumper from the FMLY store. I haven’t taken a picture of myself wearing it, but I do have a screenshot from one of my more recent vlogs and you can watch my OOTD below (it starts about 5 minutes in to the vlog).


Even Annabelle is talking about them because our neighbour has the coolest cat baubles – does anyone say cool these days or am I stuck in the 90s?

We have a few different baubles on our tree in various shades of glitter, some patterned and others that are metallic. Well, I say on the tree but between Heath taking them off from the moment he gets downstairs to Annabelle and Andy moving them around every two seconds, I will be surprised if we have any left by the 25th. The glittery ones will probably look a bit patchy by then too!

Is anyone in your house/family obsessed with baubles or are we just one of those weird families? Bx
