2018's New Years Resolutions!

Welcome to a new year! I usually get quite excited with a new year starting, but for some reason I felt quite daunted this year. I'm not too sure why but I do hope that this year will be one to remember! Everyone knows that with a new year comes new years resolutions; and although most of them don't make it through the first month, here are my new years resolutions for 2018!

Product Empties #4

There is nothing better than getting rid of clutter and (finally) being able to write an empties post, especially with the new year giving a fresh start to things! Some of these have been waiting for a while to be in a post, but here are my most recent empties and what I thought of them.

What I got for Christmas | 2017

Merry Belated Christmas everybody! I hope you all had a lovely Christmas and spent it with the people you love. I want to get back into my blog, but I think I'm going to take it easy for now so please stay with me! I always love reading these Chirstmas present posts and I really wanted to do one myself. With a similar disclaimer to almost all other people that do these kinds of posts, I am NOT bragging about what I got for Christmas, I appreciate everything I have and I know that a lot of others aren't as lucky as me, but as I've already mentioned, I just really enjoy seeing other peoples' posts.

Tips on Moving Out!

Even though I have only moved twice myself, I know how stressful it can be moving house. My dad was a removal driver for years and I used to go out with him on jobs, so I have picked up a few tricks of the trade to make moving (slightly) less stressful and a bit smoother. Here are my top tips to help you move house!

Lush Halloween Mini-Haul!

Everyone gets excited for the seasonal Lush products, but I think that there is a certain buzz around the Halloween collection that they release! Autumn and Halloween brings something out in people, it makes people feel cosy and they love the warm scents that get released around this time. Me however, I'm a weird one, because I have to be really careful with what I buy around autumn, because I thoroughly HATE the smell of spices and certain 'cosy' scents.

I went to Lush to try some of their Halloween products and here are the ones I picked up!

Bewitched: This is the main reason I wanted to go to Lush. I adore kitties and this was just too good to pass up on. Luckily the scent is not spicy and is really pleasant and fruity (supposedly smelling like blackberry). This bubble bar is like all others and creates a gorgeous lather that explodes in your bath! The scent is great and it turns your water a grey colour, that is surprisingly not nasty looking! The only problem I have is chopping this little cat up to put in my bath *sad face*.

Pumpkin: This one does what it says on the tin... well... bag? This bath bomb shaped into a Halloween classic does have a slightly spicy smell but the sweetness definitely overpowers it! It smells slightly orangey/citrus  but the spice subtly comes through. The vanilla is what causes it not to be overpowering but doesn't mask it enough to wipe it out completely. I'd definitely recommend it for when you want a cosy night in but also want a bit of fun!

There were quite a few others in the collection that I really like the look of but these were the ones that won me over. I really hate the look of the jelly bombs, I tested one in store and it literally creates a layer of 'jelly' on the top of the bath, which honestly just looks like slime. I can't even imagine having to get out of the bath after a jelly bomb because I think you would just need to have another shower afterwards! The jelly bombs really don't float my boat, but let me know what you think of them if you have tried them!

Have you picked anything up from the Halloween collection? What are your favourites? Let me know!

Speak to you soon!
