LUSH 2017 EASTER RANGE

I hope you all put a Spring in your step this Easter with my Lush Easter Beauty Haul over Instagram. YES, these Lush treats should’ve had you bouncing about, so ears to hoping you had a superbly hoppy Easter. Today I will be going through my thoughts on these beauty bombs, so prepare yourself for a few funny yolks along the way, and make sure you look out for next years 2018 Easter range.

A few weeks ago, I was invited to attend the LUSH bloggers event at my local LUSH store, which was a complete honour! Right up until the last moment where I couldn’t make it because PREGNANCY got in the way. You know, some days are superb and others not so much. As you can imagine, I totally wanted to risk it, but you never know what to expect when there’s a little chick waiting to hatch. I had to unfortunately give the event a skip, but I still managed to get my hands on the new fun Easter range from LUSH.

First up, we have a BUNCH OF CARROTS BUBBLE BAR. These are SO CUTESY for some magic in the bathtub! What’s even better is that these carrots are reusable and can last for 30 baths in total between the collection – that’s 10 baths per carrot and a whole lot of bubbles. These are also fun for kids to use. Simply hold a carrot under the running tap, watch the bubbles pop and the water change colour! These also aren’t your average vitamic C carrots, just by the way. These bubble bars are rich with lemon, bergamot, and buchu oils to fill your tub with citrusy bubbles and scents.

Next, we have the GOLDEN EGG BATH BOMB. With explosions (literally) of glitter and cocoa butter, you’re guaranteed to come out looking all sparkly and feeling moisturised. This bomb melts in the bath and turns the water bright yellow – almost as if you’ve cracked an egg! This is a slow melting bath bomb and spins about dissolving in the water like a baked potato!

This next one is one of my favourites. It involves a bunny, and a squeaky clean face. Yip, it’s time to meet FLOPSY! This is a face cleanser or if we want to get technical, Flopsy is actually a face wash cleanser. How does it work, you may be wondering? Well that’s an easy one! Flopsy lives in a tub. Everytime you want to use your little jelly, all you need to do unsquish him out the tub, stroke over your face, or rub between your paws to get it frothy and create a lather. This is also the best smelling bunny in Town. Bergamot oils and zesty lemon will leave you feeling jolly with this jelly!

If you’re looking for a bigger bomb, then the CHICK ‘N MIX is perfect for you. This little (or rather large, actually) bomb is basically is 2 bombs in one – winning! Chick n mix is a fun mixture of half yellow and half blue with a little orange egg. They can be used together or for 2 separate baths, to make your bomb go further. This bomb is the perfect excuse to get chicky with it, with bergamot oils, tonke absolute and a few surprises in the bath.

My final bomb of the day is the “Which came first” egg. Plop this bomb into the bath to see whether the chicken or the egg surfaces first. It’s petty egg-straordinary if you ask me and smells just like Spring. If you’re looking for relaxation, then look no further. Scents of refreshing lemon and grapefruit oils are sure to make the water super soft and creamy.

Which came first?

I hope that you all had a wonderful Easter and that your Sunday was at the very least, a good hare day.

Until next time,

NOVEMBER RAIN LIFESTYLE FASHION PONCHO

Today we are stepping away from all things make up, beauty and recipe related and making a splash in the world of fashion when it comes to the Wintery weather.

These ponchos come in a super cutesy pouch bag – how fabulous!

Although born into scorching hot weather of sunshine and beaches, I am secretly (and totally proud to be) a Winter baby!

Since living in the UK, we tend to find ourselves frolicking about in more raindrops than rays of sunshine, and if there’s one thing that I have learnt from the Brits’, it’s that the rain never stops you from doing what you’ve  gotta do!

If you’re anything like me and always forget to pack your umbrella into your bag, then my November Rain Lifestyle secret is totally for you!

This is a super stylish poncho raincoat that keeps you dry during those unexpected showers. My favourite part is that it fits all snuggly into its own pouchy bag that can be kept in the car, in  your handbag or even in your backpack. There’s no reason to not be a prepared Petra with this darling little raincoat at hand.

Super spacious for tons of movement!

These ponchos are so incredibly comfortable and warm and allow lots of room for movement with its sophisticated and practical design. They’re super easy to slip over your outfit or even your jacket. One thing that I am absolutely LOVING about this poncho is the fact that it allows PLENTY of room for my 5 month growing baby bump. This totally tickles my pickle, because we all know how often our wardrobes need replacing when we’re expecting.

This design is the Oriental Bird design – my favourite!

These ponchos come in different patterns and trendy colours too which give them that extra bit of sass, not to mention the flattering design that has a longer stretch at the back to cover your bottom. The hood is also detachable and super spacious, which doesn’t leave you with hair being tugged from behind – bonus! If you’re worried about squishing your head through the poncho, fear not! There’s a super “easy to use” full length heavy duty zipper for easy access, which totally makes life easier, doesn’t it?

What a spacious little hood we have here!

November Rain Ponchos are made from a superb quality Satin Polyester and have a waterproof backing to avoid all wetness and the possibility of looking like a drowned rat – which is never a good look to be sporting around.

Not only do these ponchos flaunt style and dryness of course, but they also fund their own Giving Back project, which means that 10% of all revenue is donated each quarter to various water related projects. These include the Water culture project in Northern Thailand which has allowed the company to feed 100 children continuously every year due to the growing of crops. What a fabulous project, if you ask me! Find out more here.

HOT FASHION TIP: Pair your poncho with a bright pair of wellies for a funky daytime look or show off your waterproof style at your weekend festival, sporting events, theme parks or pretty much wherever the rain drops take you.

If you fancy putting one of these to the test, be sure to order yours for £49 here .

Style: Longer back & shorter front. Love it!

Until next time,

Mycaila – Jade
