Lush Experience

Hi guys, so some time last week I walked into a Lush store after ages. I literally haven't purchased anything from there in about a year or two and back then I only used to buy the Cupcake Face Mask. I hear all about the bath bombs all the time, they are raved about hugely in the beauty community, but I have never tried them. Since I really wanted to buy the Bubblegum Lip Scrub, I also decided to look at some of the bath bombs and finally chose the one below. (Just for the heads up, quality of pictures isn't great since I used my mobile because I don't currently have my digital camera on me)

So this is the bath bomb, Dragon's Egg. It has a very fresh lemon type of smell. I'm not too keen on extremely sweet smells so this one was perfect for me. Now if you look at it, it does look kind of plain and I'm not going to lie, don't expect anything too extravagant. However, the specks of colour you see, do dissolve in the water and become this sort of gel like consistency which was also still soapy so no idea what was up there but meh I still liked it nonetheless. Ooooh and the smell, damn does this have lasting power or what?! I still smelt lemony after 2-3 of using it, so impressed!

 Now this photo isn't the clearest but you can kind of see that it is fizzing. It basically just turned the water and nice frothy white colour until later when I was shocked. I never got a snap of it, I wish I had, but the bomb started fizzing and oozing out this burnt orange looking stuff. No clue what it was but it smelt nice so it made me happy.
     So yeah that's basically my first official experience with Lush after a good year or so. I am for sure going back and I'm going to try some of the "most raved" bath bombs etc.

Before I round up, I just want to use this time to promote a campaign that one of my friends is doing. Her name is Dominika and she has beautiful long hair which she is going to cut off to give to Little Princess Trust but she is trying to raise money too so her granddad can have a prosthetic leg made. There are more details on the website, link below, but I would really appreciate it if you at least read what is on the website and pass it on to people you know can donate, if you are unable to!


So that is all for now and I shall talk to you guys real sooooon :) xoxo

Mission Monologue Complete...

Hey guys I'm baaaaack!

I've had a really good day and I'm having a well deserved rest today instead of doing college work. So if any of you remember in the early hours of Thursday, when I couldn't sleep, I wrote a post and mentioned that today I had to perform a monologue, kind of like a character's long speech

Update on 08/03/14 @21:47
Terribly sorry, I think I was watching Gossip Girl and had this open in another tab, must have fallen asleep. But basically I was saying a monologue is a character's long speech in a play and I had an examination for that yesterday. And so like I was really stressed out! I was honestly a bag of nerves. But all the hard graft I put into it for months was good because when it was my turn to go up and perform suddenly all the nerves vanished and I think/hope I did pretty good.

But yes I just wanted to tell you guys that I had that exam and that well I'm hoping I did well enough. I feel I will know my lines for this for years since it took me so long to perfect them. If you ever see me in the streets, just shout to me "Emily, Our Town, Monologue, GOOOO!!" hahaha.

Anyways that is all for now, so talk to you guys real soon :) xoxo

I haven't died, don't stress!!

Hi guys, just some late night blogging since I'm having terrible insomnia right now. I'm so sorry for my disappearance but I'm still alive, don't fret!

I've literally been so stressed. The 'school year' in a sense, has already gone well ahead and so many stressful events. Re-takes of exams and I've got a monologue performance for drama tomorrow, eep scared much!

So yeah it has basically been hectic. There's not really any structure to this post considering its going to be 2am in about 15mins or so but just thought I'd kill some time by letting you all know I haven't died and that I'm still going to blog soon, hopefully.

Unfortunately I can't record videos at the moment since my aunty borrowed my camera so YouTube is at a stand-still too. But hopefully, everything will be back on track soon hopefully.
So erm that's all really. Hope to talk to you guys real soon :) xoxo
