Valentine’s Day: Lush “Lot’s Of Love” Gift Set

It’s Valentine’s Day in 4 days now, so today I’m showing you guys one of the best Valentine’s Day ultimate hacks; A Lush gift set! It’s perfect if your other half is obsessed with Lush, and it’s perfect if you really don’t know what to get them!IMG_1038In the “Lot’s Of Love” gift set, you get 6 of some of the cutest love-themed products that Lush have to offer, and I’m going to talk you through them all, alongside one bonus product!IMG_1053

Tisty Tosty | This bath bomb is based on a medieval love potion. It contains seven real rosebuds and has a gorgeous scent of geranium, jasmine and rose, said to be toning and balancing, and floral and seductive. It also makes for a really pretty and relaxing bath.

Oral Pleasure | Now this product is not included in the “Lot’s Of Love” gift set, but fortunately this was gifted to me, and I had never heard of it before so I thought I’d share it with you guys! In this pot you have ‘toothy tabs’, which can be used as a toothpaste substitute. I know it seems confusing, but when used properly it is like their shampoo bars, that foams up incredibly. All you have to do is chew this tablet and then start brushing your teeth! It creates a white foam, so don’t let the colour (or name!) put you off!IMG_1055Rose Jam | One of my favourite products from Lush, a bubbleroon! This products smells so relaxing, and the fact that it also contains rose oil means that it’s balancing, softening and moisturising for the skin. I also really love that it can be used more than once as you can break it in half. That’s twice the amount of relaxation, in one product!

A French Kiss | I had always been drawn to this bubble bar every time I’ve been in Lush, but I’ve never actually picked it up, so I was so excited when I saw that it was included in this gift set! It smells so lovely, and I really love the way Lush describes it, “Crumble under running water for a paradisaical bath full of the lavender and rosemary scents of Southern France.” Definitely one of the most romantic products, perfect for this time of year!IMG_1058Lover Lamp | Do you want a romantic bath that smells like chocolate orange, moisturises your skin with the most delicate cocoa butter, and leaves tiny red hearts floating a top a billion bubbles? Look no further; this is the bath bomb for you. It’s perfect for a girly night in, or first thing in the morning to keep your skin super soft and smelling gorgeous all day long.

Unicorn Horn | I don’t really need to go in to much detail with this product do I? We’ve all seen it, heard of it or tried it. This bath bomb has been proven to increase serotonin levels (they make you feel happy and cheery!), and it’s just super cute. And if Lush opens their description for this product with “Unicorns are probably real. But, even if they’re not (don’t worry they definitely are) you won’t mind!” you know this bubble bar is a must buy.

Sex Bomb | This bath bomb is geared towards soothing your worries, and relieving anxiety. It’s main ingredient is Jasmine, which obviously is super relaxing, but it also said to be an ancient aphrodisiac, so again, it’s perfect for Valentine’s Day!


That’s it for the “Lot’s Of Love” gift set from Lush, perfect for if you still haven’t quite figured out what you want to give to that special someone this Sunday!

Please share this post if you enjoyed it, and help out your friends who might not know what to get for Valentine’s yet!

Pancake Day Topping Inspiration

Hey guys, as pancake day is tomorrow, I thought I’d collect and share some of my favourite topping ideas for you guys to try out!

backgrounder (9)IMG_1107I love a classic lemon and sugar combo, but for this post I wanted to share some classic and newer ideas for topping your pancakes tomorrow!IMG_1127

A stack with maple syrup and sugar | This is definitely a good old fashioned topping idea. If you really want to go all out on pancake day, a hearty stack of pancakes, drizzled in maple syrup and sprinkled with sugar, is absolutely perfect for celebrating in a classic way.

Nutella and strawberries (and icing sugar) | Two beautiful foods, coming together for a beautiful day. Here I spread Nutella completely over one half of the pancake, and then folded it over to make a pancake sandwich. I’ve put the strawberries beside the pancake so you can truly appreciate the flavour of everything here, which you should, because everything here is just too delicious. I also decided to dust over the strawberries and pancakes with icing sugar, because it’s just as sweet, but a lot more ‘Instagram-able’ with icing sugar.

Whipped cream and strawberries | Again, delicious foods both individually, and together, so put them atop a pancake and you’re guaranteed to enjoy pancake day on a whole new level. Plus you know, you’ve got spare whipped cream and strawberries ready for Valentines Day, just saying.

Banana and pecan nuts | I know this isn’t your ordinary pancake topping, but it really is a tasty combo. Plus it’s really healthy! So if you don’t want to go overboard with chocolate spread or sugar, this is quite a healthy alternative.

Chocolate sauce and pecan nuts | This is obviously similar to the banana and pecan combo, but with a little naughty treat, because dude, pancake day is only once a year.


I hope you guys enjoyed this post, and got some inspo for your pancakes tomorrow! Check out my entire Food section of my blog HERE for more recipes!

BLOGMAS Day 23 // Christmas Day Outfit Inspiration

IT’S CHRISTMAS EVE EVE!!! Can you guys believe it? Of course you can, it’s practically been Christmas on my blog for 23 days now.

Since we’re only 2 sleeps away, today I wanted show you guys what I’ll be wearing for Christmas this year!

Obviously we start out with PJs, so I’ll be rocking these rather festive joggers with an ordinary t-shirt. (Don’t want to overdo the Christmas cheer first thing in the morning do we?)morning xmas outfitNext we’re onto the epitome of Christmas day. Well, maybe not the epitome, but it’s certainly a massive part of it, the Christmas jumper! I’ve thrown mine on with one of my wardrobe staples, a black skater skirt, some thick black tights (it is still Winter after all!) my antler headband and black brogues. day xmas outfitNow for many of us, the outfits stop there, hell, for some of us the outfits more realistically stop at the PJs, but I wanted to put together a ‘dressier’ option, for those of us that are attending any parties, just going out for the evening, or even if you just want to dress up for dinner with your family.

So for this look, I’ve kept my skater skirt, but added a sparkly halter neck crop top and swapped my tights and brogues, for the most sparkly heeled boots imaginable.evening xmas outfitWouldn’t you agree? I adore these shoes but they are truly made for the festive season, and to be shown off at parties.xmas outfit shoes


Those are my 3 outfits for Christmas day, let me know in the comments below what you’re up to on the big day, and if you’ll be dressing up or if you’ll be staying in your PJs all day long!

Current Mood/Inspirations

Today I thought I’d try something completely different and out of the ordinary for me and this blog, so I took some time to create a mood-board. This mood-board is to me, a representation of me, things I love, stuff I like, and things I stand for.


Fotor0622151245


Obviously most of this is self-explanatory, but I did want to lightly touch on the message “When it rains look for rainbows When it’s dark look for stars.” 

As soon as I saw this quote, it instantly resonated with me. All too often I feel like we’re all looking for something, but we’re either not in the right place for it, it’s not the right time, etc. Once I saw this quote a lot of things made sense. Of course we’re all looking for things, things that we can never seem to attain; but what if we simply changed our perspective? That’s what this quote says to me, adjust your goals and mindset, based on your perspective. That way you’ll always find what you’re looking for.

I may make these mood-boards a monthly feature, but also, I may not. We’ll see where the wind takes us people.


I hope you enjoyed this mood-board post! If you did be sure to let me know!
