An Autumn Staple | The Tartan Scarf

Already half way through October, I decided to buy a new scarf for this autumn and winter. Last year, nearly everyone I knew had a tartan scarf, so I knew I had to get one this year when I saw them coming back into fashion! I went for a vibrant, classic red tartan scarf which I found in Newlook, for around £10.00. This scarf can easily be paired with a coat and boots for the colder months, or simply just worn with a regular autumn outfit to make it look a little more special!

Small Lush Haul

Hello! First of all, I apologise for uploading two consecutive Lush posts- I had a fashion post planned for this week however that somehow never ended up happening! On a side note, you can never have too many Lush products so, here I am for the second week in a row, showing you what I was lucky enough to pick up yesterday when I went shopping in Brighton.

Sea Vegetable
I'm nearly 100% certain that all of you guys would agree with me when I say that the soaps in Lush are beyond impressive! In every Lush store which I have been in, the large circles of colour always appeal to me the most. I decided to try out Sea Vegetable, a seaweed soap which is rich in minerals and smells divine. I purchased a 100 grams cube which was £3.10. You can buy Sea Vegetable here.

Snow Angel
Lush bath melts are never a no-goer, especially when it comes to the winter months and their Christmas products have been released! Out of what seemed like hundreds of bath melts, I eventually decided on getting Snow Angel, purely because it was covered in gold and silver glitter- what could be better?! The shape of this melt is literally a snow angel (hence the name) and I cannot wait to use this in the bath to make my skin feel soft and golden! This is £3.95 and can be purchased here.

Luxury Lush Pud
I'm never too sure on whether this bath bomb is intended to be part of Lush's Christmas range or not, considering I see it pretty much all year round. However, this is an old favourite of mine and I love getting into a bright, fizzing bath with a strong lavendery smell. You can buy Luxury Lush Pud here for £3.50.

Lord Of Misrule
In the Brighton Lush, I found this bath bomb which I had surprisingly never tried before. The bright green colour appealed massively to me as I don't really have any green bath bombs, and as you look closer you can see tiny speckles of colour shining through from the inside. Anyway, as you've probably gathered this bath bomb intrigued me so I took the plunge and gave it a try. Unlike many other Lush products, this fizzer has a very unique smell of of a spicy herbal blend; consisting of black pepper and patchouli oil. In my opinion, this product is very suited to the Autumn season and I definitely recommend it if you want a different smell in your bath! You can buy this here for £3.50.

A little disclaimer- all of my opinions above were honest and my own and this post was not sponsored, I brought all these products myself!

Thanks :)

Fresh Faced Sunday | Lush Masks

Lush is one of those shops that I can never just walk past without having to go in and buy something! One of my all time favourite products from Lush are there face masks, and I'm not ashamed to say that I've tried out a few more than I've probably needed to! Today, I have picked three masks, for a selection of skin types, to ensure that there is a mask for everybody in this post! All masks cost £6.50 each, and have an expiry date for around three weeks. I have linked all the masks with their direct website URL, so once you have read through them all, you can choose a mask to possibly buy!

Love Lettuce
The first ever face mask I purchased from Lush was Love Lettuce; an effective, exfoliating mask for people with normal to oily skin. First of all, this mask has an extremely fresh and almost minty scent, this is definitely one to make anyone feel much better about them self. If you consider your skin to be a little sensitive, then this mask is the one for you! To buy Love Lettuce, click here.

Catastrophe Cosmetic
One of my most recent purchases is Catastrophe Cosmetic. This mask is for a wider range of skin types and it gently soothes, cleanses and moisturises the skin. In my opinion, this is one of the best masks to fight spots/ blemishes considering it contains blueberries, calamine powder, chamomile blue oil and Irish moss gel- all of which help to make your skin clearer and smoother! You can buy Catastrophe Cosmetic here.

A couple of months ago, I was really into Ayehsa; a fresh and natural face mask, which really brightened up my skin. This mask contains fresh asparagus and kiwis and is mixed with honey and witch hazel, to create a flawless finish. On top of this, this mask has a generous amount of elder flower in, which really helps to balance out your skin tone, and overall, leave it looking healthier and brighter. Personally, I would say this mask is aimed at older skin and is probably not the best option for teenage skin, but this definitely works a treat if anyone wants to brighten their complexion.
