LUSH Sparkly Pumpkin review

uk lush beauty blog review sparkly pumpkin halloween 2014

I'm all about the novelty of Halloween, if I can get it in a Halloween theme - I'm having it! Like I said in my Devil dress-up post I'm not really decorating this Halloween (I have a few lanterns and a banner up with some cobwebs) as it falls on a Friday and I'm off to a party this year so I won't be making mess with my own pumpkins! Be sure to check out my Instagram and Twitter for updates on my Halloween costume on Friday - It's not the Devil costume either ;) 

This year LUSH have bought out the Sparkly Pumpkin, it's very different to last years LUSH pumkin' bubble bar it's more sophisticated and I'd say so is the smell. This year the smell is more refreshing than Autumnal with Grapefruit, Lime and Juniper Berries. The bubble bar is also bigger so you can easily get two baths from this (but I like to crumble the whole bar) and the glitter is very subtle and doesn't get everywhere like some other bubble bars.

As you can see it's an opaque orange colour with little flecks of gold glitter and super bubbly!

Have you tried any of the new Autumn/Winter Lush ranges yet?

Today I discovered my camera has a video function so was thinking of diving into the world of Vlogging, any tips?

The Body Shop Wild Argan Oil Range - review.

The Body Shop Argan Oil Range review

Today I want to share with you the new Wild Argan Oil range from The Body Shop. 

I was really excited to try this range as usually whenever I use Argan oil products I feel them leaving me shiny and don't soak into the skin for agess which is really annoying and gross, so I wanted to test out The Body Shop who have a high standard of great products to NOT do this. 

I am a huge Body Shop fan, when I was a kid I used to love going in and smelling and picking up the animal-shaped soaps (remember them?) and was always intrigued by their ethics for using their money to help endangered animals and working with human rights. The Argan range is no different, the Argan nuts are ethically hand-picked and then extracted using old Moroccan methods.

Body Shop Argan Body Butter review Argan Oil review
The Body Shop Argan Oil Body Butter* - £13
Wild Argan Oil Radiant Oil for Hair and Body* - £14

The body butter is really thick, it does take a while to absorb but it does leave your skin feeling really soft and smooth for a long time. Worth the wait if you have a while after a bath or something. 

The oil is what I was worried about it doesn't actually take long to absorb in the skin and leaves it smelling amazing! As for my hair I was scared I'd be left with greasy looking ends but not at all! It's so fine and leaves my hair feeling soft and fluffy. But bear in mind you only need a tiny bit!

Body Shop Argan Lip butter review argan shower gel review
The Body Shop Argan Shower Gel* - £4
The Body Shop Argan Oil Lip Balm* - £4

The shower gel doesn't have an overpowering scent but does make your whole bathroom smell amazing after use. A little goes a long way here again it's froths up well and gives a great refreshing wash.

The lip balm is my favourite product. I'ts been a life-saver in these cold weeks! It is very solid but once on it stays on for such a long time I'm left with soft lips all day.

What are your fave Argan Oil based products? I love the smell so much I really want to try a shampoo/conditioner set!

Halloween Costume for You and Your Pet: Devils.

matching halloween devil costume for cats dogs pets humans


I now have my laptop back and I am so happy!
I have a couple Halloween themed posts coming up and I'm kicking off with this awesome costume post where me and Prince dressed up in matching outfits (kinda like Lucille and Buster on Arrested Development, maybe we will win an award?).

If you want to dress up and get your pet involved too then ASDA have awesome dog and cat Halloween costumes (I got Prince an XS dog and it fits him great) that you can also find in their adult halloween costume section too!

You may remember last year when I dressed Prince up as a Skeleton and the year before he was a tiny baby so wore a little cape. I chose the theme Devils for us this year, let me show you my costume first :

Halloween Glitter Cape* - £6
Devil Horn Wig* - £4

As my cape had a Green glitter effect to it I thought I'd do Green make-up too (which also goes well with the Red hair)
I used the new Atomic lipstick from MakeUp Revolution in 'Serpent'* - £1
And a Green shadow from the I Heart MakeUp Palette 'I Heart Passion'* - £7.99

Now for Prince's Devil costume:

Pet Devil Halloween Costume* - £4

Cat devil costume

As you can see Prince was thrilled to be dressed up haha!
I actually haven't got as excited about Halloween this year, I think it's because I've fallen out of love with my flat and don't want to be here anymore so can't be bothered to decorate it, I will put up a few on the weekend to get the feel and maybe I'll get into it a bit more!

What are you dressing up as for Halloween? And will you dress up your pet?

BLEACH London - Blullini Review.

Oh Hi!

Still laptopless but working on my sloowww Mac desktop. 

I got bored with my hair being blonde again...yep again and decided to go blue!

This time I was trying Bleach London's Blullini which in the hair-swatch on their site looks like my perf shade of blue. However I just knew that after the Parma Violets incident it wasn't going to be as straight forward as having lush-coloured blue hair. So I opted for just doing my ends instead of my whole swede.

This THIS was the colour I wanted! But I didn't do enough hair/put enough on so when I re-did it to add more it went turquoise like I KNEW it would - like the Parma Violets and it's going to stay in my hair for so so long :(

Sorry for the gross pic just throwin some shade.

So I was kinda disappointed in this one, if you use too much/leave it on too long then it goes turquoise and lasts forever in your hair. I much prefer pink/lilac shades in my hair so I think I'll stick to them from now on!
Don't forget to check out my Bleach London Awkward Peach review to compare!
