Creamy Candy Bubble Bar Review 

I love baths and after a stressful day having a bath is the perfect day to relax.

On my way home from work after a very busy day I headed into lush, it really is one of my favourite shops and the staff are always so nice.


Now I knew I wanted a bubble bar as I love bubbles in my bath . I was drawn to this bright pink bubble bar with a pretty blue flower in the middle.


As I was running my bath that night I held the bubble bar under the tap and watched the water turn pink and of course the bubbles started

Than you get the sweet smell but not to over powering filling up the bathroom


This bubble bar is one my new favourites it was relaxing and I loved the bubbles, it was so relaxing and will be repurchasing.

Lots of love

Life update

I’ve become so lazy with my blog lately, as I am loving instagram and the stories. I never got into snapchat but I still do use it, I think because I seem to have a lot of men following me on their. Which is strange and I get a lot of message from them informing me I shop way to much lol.

So gonna also use my life update as my bits and bobs shopping that I haven’t shown you yet, this weeks bit and bobs, is PJ’s and Slippers. I picked up a few weeks ago from you guessed it Penneys/Primark. I’m just loving the rabbit ear slipper, I even picked up a secound pair.img_5968-1

 I have been living in the bath latly after I paid a visit to lush, I just love bath bombs and they are so relaxing.

The first one I used was you’ve been mangoed bath oil, I have never used a bath oil from Lush before, first thing you notice is it is very small compared to the bath bombs and it smells amazing very citrus which maked me think of holidays. Now their is no bubbles with this one but the smell makes up for it, also left my skin feeling very soft only thing is it left the bath with a green making where the water was, I kinda thaught I was that dirty turned out it wasn’t me lol.

Up next was Karma Bubble bar, I love bubbles so this was perfect again its citrus smell which I love and the glitter which I like. The day I used this Karma, I was wrecked and had the bath just before bed to help me relax and it worked a treat.

Next up is Sakura bath bomb  which is disapointing the smell isn’t that strong and didn’t change the bath water that much just to a pinkish colour so was very disapointed.

So last week in Ireland and again this week is a bus strike on Thursday and Friday, so I have been on the 6.15am train in the morning that explains my tiredness. On Friday I ended up going to work with no make up on, don’t worry it was still dark out and I done my make up when I arrived in so because I was so early I had loads of time to do it and take my time.

I’m loving No7 lipstick I’m going to do a proper review on it.

Also I finally wore my new shirt from Penney/Primark and sleevless Camel jacket from River Island which I love and is perfect in this weather.

On Sunday I headed out to Howth for a walk.

I ended up in the market, hich is held every weekend in Howth where I picked up these amaing mini cupcakes which are €1.70 each they wore yum

Hope everyone had a great week

Lush Lip Scrub

I have always had horrible dry lips from the  Irish weather and central heating and have always kept a toothbrush to lightly brush them, but over Christmas I was in lush and picked up a lip scrub for €6.95/£5.50 .
I went for the seasonal Santa’s Lip Scrub its a cola flavered lip scrub and comes in a glass jar.

Take a small amount using your fingers and apply to your lips, you can than use your fingers to gentle scrub or just rub your lips together. Oh and its also ediable so when finished you can either wipe away or lick it off, I went with wipe as its full off dead skin and just couldn’t do it.

The main thing did I notice a diffeance?
Yes I did a big one my lips wore soft and just perfect to apply my lipstick for a big night out.

I have started doing this twice a week to my lips before bed and just applying a bit of vasline afterwords or if I’m going out on a night out and want my lips looking kissable this is perfect to do before you clense and tone your skin.

Lots of Love

I was in town on Friday and everywhere seemed to have lovely underwear in for Valentine’s day I wasn’t even going to waste my money and then I spotted these two underwear sets in Primark/Penneys and just thought to myself buy why not most of the time a girl buy under wear for herself not a man.

First up is this Neon lace bra priced at €10 and matching knickers €4 to me this is perfect for Valentine’s Day.

006
Next up is fuschia vintage bra €8 and matching knickers €5 all this for 13 shocking it really is perfect for Valentine’s Day.

013

 

Then I ended up in Lush and seen the red heart bubble bar called heart throb and I wanted it, it really is so cute and its priced at €4.50/ £3.65 you just break this into you bath but there wasn’t as many bubbles as I thought there would be and the smell wasn’t that strong the bath was a lovely red colour but it wouldn’t be one of my favorites but if someone got me this for Valentine’s day I would be a happy lady.

Lush Holly Golightly Bubble Bar Review.

I went into Lush last week I have not been in there in years and decided to treat myself they have there Christmas stock in and I decided to give it a try and went for Holly Golightly bubble bar priced at £4.75/€5.95.

image

When you pick it up you are covered in glitter which I loved but your are not covered in glitter when you get out get out of the bath and it’s only on the outside of the bar and inside is Christmas green

image

You break this bubble bar in two and crumble under running water it is kinda hard to break but I managed it and straight away you can smell Christmas the good thing about breaking the bar you can use it again but I did use the whole bar in the bath it’s so relaxing I have to say it was one of the nicest baths I had in a long time.

image

I used this yesterday and can still smell it on my skin I will be getting this in for Christmas Eve.

I know it’s November and I am talking about Christmas already so I am so sorry but I love Christmas.

Love

Carol
