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

Gifts for my 2 Year Old – Blogmas Day 20

Christmas this year should be a lot more fun now that Heath is old enough to open his presents. Last year it was great for Annabelle as she could help with the unwrapping but I’m sure she will be excited to see what he has been given and hopefully share their gifts with each other. As he is two years old, I thought he would like this selection of toys.


We wanted to buy Heath a Micro Scooter for his second birthday but I saw some toys on offer in Sainsbury’s and thought I would get those first while they were discounted. Annabelle has the pink Mini Micro Scooter and Heath enjoys riding around on hers while she is at school so it is the perfect gift for his age.

He also needs a helmet so I chose this orange one, also by Micro Scooter. I haven’t purchased this yet as I am debating getting the blue option in case Annabelle can wear it to. I might need to measure their heads to see if they can both wear the same size.

If you have read my Blogmas Day 1 post you will know that Heath is a train enthusiast. I think he would be ecstatic about the Thomas Take ‘n’ Play set with 10 die cast characters. He has Thomas and Percy already but I know he will love Captain and Diesel too.

Andy found this cute Mickey Mouse Duplo Train for Heath in Boots. He received Thomas the Tank engine Lego for Christmas last year so I am planning on combining the two to make a huge set. The great thing about this Mickey parade is that it will appeal to Annabelle too.

Last but not least, whenever Annabelle draws, Heath likes to copy. He will be able to colour in this Crayola Finding Dory book happily without marking our dining table in the process with this Mess Free Colour Wonder. Like the last gift I mentioned, it is also suitable for Annabelle and they can swap packs to their hearts content.

If you missed it, yesterday’s Blogmas post was about my Gift Ideas for Annabelle, my 5 year old daughter. I hope you like it and are enjoying my posts in this run up to Christmas. See you tomorrow for Day 21! Bx
