LUSH Halloween

A few weeks ago I visited Lush and picked up some bath bombs, I bought both new ones from the Halloween and Christmas collections as well as some old classics. Today I will be showing you two bath bombs from the Halloween collection.

I wish that every bath I take would be with a bath bomb from lush, but sometimes I have to go for a bubble bath too (it would be too expensive otherwise).

This little monster of a bomb is a mash-up of lime and neroli oils, and it smells lovely. It goes from white to pink and purple and blue and looks so pretty in the bath. I’m not gonna lie though, this one stains really bad. I was pink after the bath, not to mention my bath tub…

This lil’ jack-o’-lantern has a spicy, sweet perfume full of exotic pimento, sweet vanilla and warming cinnamon. This one was not as exciting as the Monster’s ball, it just left the water orange (and of course nicely scented).

*I realize that I didn’t take any pictures of them before they went in to the bath, so I borrowed pictures of them from Lush’s website.

Lush Lemony flutter

I bought this cuticle butter on a trip to London earlier this year, I went in to Lush to buy some bath bombs and got this one too. I love anything nail and nail care related and when I saw that it was lemon scented I just had to get it, because I love citrus so so much.

Like it says on the container “a little goes a long way” and it’s so true. I can already tell that it will last for a really long time, and you can’t really see that I have been using it. The product is rather thick and is therefore perfect for dry skin or cuticles.

Once you apply it to the skin it kind of melts so you don’t really need that much product. It has a lovely lemon-y scent, but I feel that the scent changes once it’s been on the skin for a while, and I’m not sure how I feel about that.

I’ve been using it really much lately since my nails, cuticles and skin around the nails are in such a bad shape after using Seche Vive.

London shopping part 2

This weekend I was in London (again) with my boyfriend. It’s like the third time in six months… oops. We went to see The Last Shadow Puppets, but of course we had time for some shopping too. I actually found a lot of things (mostly polish), much more than I was planning on. I’m guessing you want to see what I bought!?

Of course we went to Lush to buy some more bath bombs and bubble bars! I love taking baths, so they will be used up pretty quick I think. I even got my boyfriend to pick out some stuff! The hotel room smelled like a mini Lush after our shopping there.

I found some really cheap China Glaze polishes, six full size bottles for £15 and six minis bottles for £5.

I think I went in to every Boots we passed to look for Starry starry night from Essie, but it was sold out everywhere. So when I found a mini pack with four of the polishes from the Retro revival collection (including Starry starry night) I knew I had to have it! I also found a mini pack with four of the Virgin snow winter collection polishes that I bought. They were both £10 each. I bought a duo pack with Bikini so teeny and the Gel setter top coat for £10 too. I have been wanting to try this top coat for a while, so I thought I’d give it a try now when I found it at such a good price. At the airport, right before we were going to our gate we walked by a Boots, so I went in one last time too look for Starry starry night. And I found it! Just this one bottle! They had ‘buy one, get one half price’ so I bought Haute tub from the winter collection as well. Total for these two polishes were £12, pretty ok.

I bought five OPI polishes for my mom. Polka.com, Baroque… but still shopping!, OPI with a nice Finn-ish, Primarily yellow  and Glitter off base coat. They were all £3 each.

I found most of the polishes at TK Maxx (OPI, China Glaze and Essie) and a few at Boots (Essie).

I almost forgot, but I went to Kiko where bought three polishes. 533, 261 and 271. And they were only £2,5 each.

I did not just buy polish, I found a Ciaté x Olivia Palermo Smoked out eyeliner for only £5. And I bought 2XU compression tights at Runners need. They were expensive though, but still cheaper than if I would have bought them in Sweden.

Then I got something for a friend, but she hasn’t got it yet. And I think she reads my blog so I’m not going to tell you what it is to ruin the surprise!

Ps. I also bought something that I’m planning on doing a giveaway with! I’m not gonna tell you what it is yet, but keep your eyes open on my Instagram page for a chance to win this amazing giveaway!

London shopping

This weekend my boyfriend and I went to London to see Hozier, and when you’re in London you have to go shopping! I was looking for beauty stuff and my boyfriend was looking for vinyl. This is what I came home with.

At Lush I bought Lemony flutter cuticle butter and bath bombs. Finally I have some pretty bath bombs that smell lovely! The bath bombs I have used before have been useless (they were not from Lush) so I look forward take baths with these.

From Boots I bought some things from Essie. Essie spa hand scrub and hand creme and leave no trace glitter nail polish remover. I got a sample of the glitter remover from Kicks and I really liked it, it makes it so much easier to take of glitter polishes! I haven’t found the hand creme and scrub in Sweden before so I’m looking forward to try them. Of course I had to try them at the hotel, and so far I can say that they smell really nice!

At The Body shop I bought five body butters for only £25, so now I’m set for a while.

A friend on insagram let me know I could find cheap OPI’s at TK Maxx. If I hadn’t know what I could find in the store I don’t think I would have gone in, because it didn’t look promising from the outside. It was a very messy store, but I managed to find a few goodies. A duo pack with the latest Coca Cola polishes from OPI, a mini pack with mini nail envy, rapid dry top coat and avoplex cuticle oil. And then two OPI polishes for my mum that I know (think?) she doesn’t already have. From China Glaze I got a mini 6-pack and Orange cuticle oil. The polishes were £3,99 and the sets were £9,99.
