8 Gifts for the Mermaid Lover in Your Life

Mermaids are currently quite the trend at the moments. From fashion, beauty and even homeware, the mythical sea creature is widely popular. Whether it’s a child’s fantasy or the throwback for an adult’s childhood, this trend is almost as big as the mystical trend of unicorns. I’ve seen so many adorable mermaid gifts lately that I thought I would share with you if you’re looking for something for the mermaid lover in your life.

The Launch of LUSH Spa Cardiff

As I write this, I’ve just got in from my first ever blogger’s event and though I’ve always wanted to go to one for some time, I think this one being my first made it all the more special. I’ve been a fan of LUSH (AKA Lushie) for some time now and it’s my favourite beauty brand.  I’d known about the spa for some time, so I had been eager to see it for maybe even a year, so when I received an invite to the launch of the LUSH Spa Cardiff, I was ecstatic.

I was the third person to enter the spa and was greeted with a name tag and a free drink which is from The Comforter? treatment that’s available in the spa. It was a pink fizzy drink that had candyfloss in it, which tasted amazing.

In my small group of three, the lovely Molly was the one to take us around the store on a special tour of the new building and, of course, the new spa. The first thing we witnessed was a demonstration of the brand new Yellow Submarine bath bomb, which we were informed is exclusive to the LUSH Spa Cardiff! As you can see in the video below, it looks incredible.

Molly showed us some of the bath bombs and melts which all looked gorgeous. If it were possible, I would have bought one of each. Maybe when I’m a billionaire I’ll buy a LUSH shop all for myself and it will be open to special friends and family… I guess it’s time I started playing the lottery, then!

LUSH produces product in support to free Andy Tsege

Andy Tsege is a British citizen and father of three, who is being illegally held on Ethiopia’s death row. On 20th March 2017, he will have been held for 1,000 days. The democracy campaigner was kidnapped and taken to Ethiopia to face torture and execution for his political views. The UK government has power to be able to negotiate Andy’s return home, but have failed to do so.  This is where ethnical bath and beauty company, LUSH supports Andy Tsege.

The company are known for their Fresh and cruelty free cosmetics but also the advocacy in human and animal rights. LUSH have joined forces with human rights organisation, Reprieve, on the campaign #FreeAndyTsege and have created a new bath bomb called ‘Buy One, Set One Free’, to raise awareness of the horrific incident.

Free beauty products

Three Ways to Score Free LUSH products

It’s always great to get some freebies on your side. Any regular reader of mine will know about my love for LUSH and with the brand growing in popularity every year, you may be intrigued to find out how you can get your hands on free LUSH products. There are three very easy ways to get some freebies from LUSH and I’m going to explain how you can nab them.

Recycle old pots, get a new one free!

If you are a regular user of LUSH products, in particular ones that come in pots – never throw away the packaging! If you read the labels carefully and you’ll see that they state if you bring back five finished pots, you get a fresh face mask for free. So, keep your old LUSH pots stashed and every time you reach five, be sure to take them back to LUSH to claim a freebie.

January Monthly Favourites 2017

One month down of 2017, 11 more to go. Despite being ill for half of January (again), I did have a few favourites that I’ve decided to share with you from the month. So, without further ado…

MAC Whirl Lipstick

I bought this quite a few months ago and loved it then, but it somehow went missing and miraculously was discovered New Years Eve, where I decided to wear it and I fell in love all over again, so it’s been my go to lipstick of the month. This matte rosy brown shade is a nod to the 90s lip trend but with slight pink tones to prevent it from being a full on brown if you feel that may be a little too daring for your taste. It’s of quite a soft and smooth consistency and not too drying. It also holds up pretty well when eating and drinking (and I did drink on NYE, despite usually being a teetotal.) I actually bought this after seeing a Tanya Burr tutorial, but apparently this is a staple product for the one and only Kylie Jenner.

Available from MAC for £15.50 

Better Than Sex Mascara


I was given this for Christmas. I’d heard a lot about it from a Make Up Facebook group I’m involved in and then when I saw Rena Lovelis apply it in a little Snapchat tutorial, her eyelashes were killing it. It was the deciding factor of jumping on the bandwagon and I am so glad I did. This really amplifies my lashes and that’s a look I’m really quite fond of. It does take a little while to dry, but if you’re patient, then this is really ideal. Once set, there is no smudging or flaking and it’s also buildable in volume and length. It’s pretty water resistant and does a fab job in curling lashes. Definitely a winner right here. Is it better than sex? Well, I’ll leave that to your own decision…

Available from Selfridges for £19.00

Treat yourself this Valentine’s Day with the LUSH Valentine’s range

Valentine’s Day is just around the corner and whether you celebrate it or not, there’s always some great products on sale. The best ones? They can be found in the LUSH Valentine’s Day range, if you ask me.

LUSH are back soon after Christmas with their brand new Valentine’s Day range for 2017. With the return of some much loved products and a few new ones making their debut, there’s much to choose from this year, be it for your partner or even yourself. I’ve picked out some of the best bits from the 2017 range for you to have a gander at…

LUSH Valentine's Day 2017 LUSH Valentine's Day 2017 LUSH Valentine's Day 2017 LUSH Valentine's Day 2017 LUSH Valentine's Day 2017 LUSH Valentine's Day 2017 LUSH Valentine's Day 2017 LUSH Valentine's Day 2017 LUSH Valentine's Day 2017 LUSH Valentine's Day 2017 LUSH Valentine's Day 2017 LUSH Valentine's Day 2017

Out of the above, I’d really recommend the Unicorn Horn, which is a classic favourite amongst Lushies along with the Lover Lamp. Both make for a gorgeous bath with luscious lavender oil in the Unicorn Horn and Brazilian orange oil with organic cocoa butter in the Lover Lamp.

If you’re looking for pampering perfection this Valentine’s Day, then I definitely recommend getting to your local LUSH store or ordering online.

Review: Shadow Switch Dry Brush Cleaner

I’m lazy. Fact. I’m not afraid to admit it, either. I’m always on the lookout for things that can minimize any kind of chore. So, when I found the Shadow Switch Dry Brush Cleaner by Beauty Essentials online which was being raved about by beauty gurus, I felt like I had found what I’ve been looking for. If you’re like me and find cleaning your make-up brushes a pain in the arse (but still do it because you do not want that bacteria build up. Ugh.), then we can rejoice with this little beauty…

To sit at a sink for ages to clean your brushes, then wait for them to try and all that nonsense, is really time consuming and I could be doing other things (like writing a blog post, or binging on some sort of show or YouTube series… important stuff) but this is where all our troubles are washed (or dried?) away.

The Shadow Switch Dry Brush Cleaner is a little sponge which comes in a tin to use. The instructions on the back state:

ONE SIMPLE STEP. After using one colour, simply glide your eyeshadow brush around in the black sponge in a clockwise motion to remove the colour and continue applying your eye makeup using the same brush.

6 Luscious Matte Lipsticks To Pick Up From Superdrug Under £9

Matte lips were certainly a big trend in 2016 and it looks like they’re still going to be much loved this year, too. While there are some gorgeous matte lip products from some high end brands, there’s definitely a wide selection at a more affordable price to choose from. There are some amazing matte lipsticks from Superdrug that won’t break the bank and I’ve picked out some of the best for you to browse on your next beauty haul.

Tanya Burr Cosmetics Matte Lip – £5.99

This is definitely a product I am heart-eyed emoji over. It’s a great matte product without having a consistency which dries your lips. It’s also fairly long lasting, making it kiss-proof and causing a lack of concern of eating it off. My favourite shade is ‘Martha Moo’ as it’s a deep 90s nude, which is a look I’m in love with at the moment and works well with numerous of different eye looks.

 MUA Matte Lipstick – £1.00

MAJOR BARGAIN ALERT! The MUA matte lipsticks are perfect for a babe on a budget. With great pigmentation and light consistency, this product is a handbag essential. I particularly like the shade ‘Scarlett Siren’, a sexy red with cool undertones which are perfect for your night look.

Products I want to try in 2017

2016 saw a fair bit of venturing out for me with regards to products. I bought my first high end foundation, fell in love with various lipsticks and picked up a few eyeshadow palettes. In 2017, I want to venture out even further. They don’t necessarily need to be make up related, though there are a fair few I’d really like to try. I see so many bloggers and vloggers using some gorgeous products, some quite old since they first hit the shelves, but have never ended up in my possession.

Here are some products I’d love to try throughout 2017.

Estée Lauder Double Wear Stay-in-Place Foundation SPF 10

I have heard endless praise from beauty babes everywhere about this foundation. While I find the Urban Decay All Nighter Foundation lasts a long time, I’d love to be able to compare the two to see what the similarities and differences are.

Too Faced Melted Matte Liquefied Lipsticks

I’ve seen these in a lot of Instagram flat lay pictures and Oh My God, they look amazing. I’m really into matte lip products at the moment and would really love to try one of these. I haven’t set my heart on a particular shade, though I must admit, this one in Miso Pretty looks really cute.

 

GlitterEyes PressedGlitter Romance Trio

There has been a major hype of these on Facebook and after seeing some gorgeous swatches, I absolutely need them. I’m kind of sad I didn’t discover these in time for Christmas and New Year’s Eve, but I’d really like to try a glitter eye look a few times throughout 2017.
