Hey everyone! Hope you're all very well.
So, this weekend, as it's very close to Halloween (Oct 31st) I thought I'd write my first-time Halloween themed post and share with you all what I purchased recently from Lush.
I am a massive lover of bath bombs, without a doubt, so I was very excited to try out their Halloween collection to review. I'm very pleased with their Halloween collection as a first time buyer, however, I literally expected there would be loads to choose from; like way more! But that certainly hasn't spoiled it for me though.
Without further ado, let me show you the goodies I bought and tell you how amazing they truly are:
BUBBLE BAR | SPARKLY PUMPKIN: £3.29
So, let's start with the best, easily my absolutely favourite one for looks-wise. with juniper-berry, grapefruit, and lime oil.
This sparkly pumpkin-shaped bubble bar will make your bath water super shimmery and golden. Simply crumble under hot running water; this bubble bar smells absolutely amazing and good for at least two baths (or one crazy bubbly one).
This one is a little more delicately fragranced than the rest. My skin after was left with a real gentle shimmer and so soft after use.
BATH MELT | BOO: £3.50
This tiny little white ghost is half bath melt and half bubble bar mix. I really love this bath melt, It's super cute. I've never tried a bath melt before so this is my first time using one.
Scent-wise this Boo bath melt was a lot more subtle that I was expecting. Containing warming ginger, calming mimosa and sweet mandarin oil. This isn't a very strong scent but I still really like it as it's so small and perfect.
I was pleased to find the ginger was not at all over powering as I'm not that keen when it comes to ginger although the delicate mix of ingredients created a floral, fruity scent which was both relaxing yet warming.
Boo bath melt is a bath melt and bubble bar mix. In order to get the most out of this product it is best to hold it under running water. As the water runs over the ghost, it creates soft white bubbles. The warm water also melts the cocoa butter creating soft luxurious moisturising water.
BATH BOMB | LORD OF MISRULE: £3.95
Lord of Misrule is a sage green shade but once it dissolves, it reveals a deep green centre which leaves the bath water an indulgent Merlot colour. As it slowly bubbles away, it ends up looking like body parts which may not be the best of bath bombs but at least it's Halloween-suitable and it's allowed!
The fragrance is a gorgeous musky blend of black pepper oil, patchouli and vanilla which leaves a subtly spicy scent on the skin for hours after bathing. Perfectly warming for cool winter evenings.
BATH BOMB | MONSTER BALL: £4.25
I think this one is probably one of my favourites. It's so creative and looks amazing. Too good to not want to use it.
Featuring lime oil and neroli oil the Monsters’ ball bath bomb is a zesty, sweet and fruity scent. The scent is very uplifting and is great for getting you going when you feeling a little like a monster yourself. The scent of this product will also help you feel refreshed and ready to brush away all those cobwebs that are keeping you from feeling your best.
If the scent of the product isn’t enough once popped in the water you are in for a real treat, It's so colourful and a piece of art.
Monsters' Ball also creates an extra moisturising bath. The Monsters’ Ball bath bomb has a little eye made out of organic cocoa butter. Once the bath bomb has fizzed away this little eye floats on the water slowly melting and releasing its moisturising goodness into the water.
BATH BOMB | PUMPKIN: £3.95
This little bath bomb is super cool. I love the simplicity of this and the mischievous grin which captures the true essence of Halloween spirit.
Sweet vanilla and spicy cinnamon come together to create a delicious, biscuit scent, making this the perfect bath bomb to satisfy any Halloween excitement! It's enough to put you into the Halloween spirit. Pimento berry oil also works as an antioxidant, making it easy to chill and you can leave all your troubles at the door when relaxing in this spectacular pool of pumpkin pie.
This is probably one of my favourite scents of any range because it's so simple and smells almost of Halloween treats and orange lolly-pops.
I hope you've all enjoyed reading this post as much as I did writing this! I hope to be doing more Lush reviews in the future so please let me know what you think of this review in the comments below. Make sure you check out your local stores and the website for the full range of seasonal products.

Hey everyone! I hope you're all enjoying your weekend.
You will be glad to know that I have got another review for you all this weekend, how exciting?!
I was very excited about receiving my parcel from a lovely company called Caketoppers last week when they got in touch and generously sent me some personalised cupcakes to review for them.
Caketoppers are the home of personalised cakes and produces, everything from full size celebration cakes to individual personalised cupcakes, anything you could ever imagine.
I was sent a set of two cupcakes to taste and they tasted super yummy. Not only are they just normal cupcakes; they were also personalised to exactly how I wanted them. So, I though what better way than have my blog's official logo on top. Something that is very special to me.
You can literally have pretty much anything you want on top, including: personalised for weddings, birthdays or simply just a photo on top. They would also work really well as gifts for Christmas presents or special occasions,
My cupcakes were sent very well packed and perfectly presentable, Not at all moved or damaged. You wouldn't want a cupcake that's slightly melted or ruined would you? They came perfectly as they should.
I expected my photo to be a little blury or pixelated but they weren't at all. I was pretty impressive because the were extremely clear and perfectly positioned right on top.
You have a choice of cakes which come in classic sponge with white icing in a silver foil case and chocolate sponge with chocolate icing in a gold foil case. I received one of each flavour so I could enjoy both varieties. I love that you have a choice to suit any preference.
I really found that the icing in top was really thick and tasted nice and creamy, everything icing should taste like. The bun was extremely soft, probably one of the best buns I have ever tasted. It had perfect maximum flavour to it.
I will definitely be buying cakes from Caketoppers again for any special occasions I have coming up and it was a fantastic service. Couldn't fault it at all. Delivery was super quick for next day delivery.
Please go check out their website and see what they have to offer:

Disclosure: I was sent these products free of charge for the purpose of this review, However all thoughts and opinions are my own.
Good afternoon folks! Hope you're all having a fun-filled Sunday whatever you are doing today.
I thought I'd try something much more different today and write a little skincare post. As somebody like myself who enjoys having a good ol' pamper session now and again (Boys can too!), I thought I'd give you an insight to how I like to take care of my skin and show you what I do on a lazy sunday afternoon.
Last week, I came across this face mask set after browsing the internet for some half-decent face mask kits to try out. I thought I'd go the extra mile and invest in something which looks like it's really going to benefit my skin very well and make it extra clearer.
I found FaceTox, I heard some really great reviews on them from other bloggers and celebrities who have tried it out. So, I thought why not give it a try myself and see if it actually works...
Inside the box you will find 7 sachets of rose water and 7 sachets of their mixed blend of clay powder, including a small mixing bowl and spoon. Supposedly the face mask will likely be the most powerful clay mask you'll ever try with it's Aztec healing abilities and 100% organic blend.
It aims to prevent and draw out blackheads, reduce the appearance of scars, even skin tone, draw on external toxins, heal and regenerate skin tissue, and unclog and shrink pores.
I really like the fact that it's all natural ingredients and you're not putting any harsh chemicals on your skin. I've never ever had a face mask where I mix myself which is a fun thing to do and it literally takes seconds to whip into a paste. It's very simple and quick to do.
After applying the clay mask to my skin using the mini plastic spoon, my first impression was that it glides on effortlessly as it's a really smooth but thick paste. There were still plenty of the mask left over although you couldn't use it else it will harden after so I added a quick extra layer on top so I get the full use out of it.
You can certainly feel it working on your skin. I've heard some people say that you may feel a slight tingle but I didn't feel that at all. If anything, your skin feels fresher the second you apply it. Quite literally!
After the first few minutes, I felt the mask pulling and tightening so you know it's doing the job it's supposed to do . After the 30 minutes is up and it's time to take it off, It's a challenge to wipe it off your face. This doesn't ruin it for me however it is very messy and hard to clean the sink out after use.
I have very sensitive skin as well, after I managed to wipe away the product, my skin became very red however, It only lasts for up to an hour. It's best to give the redness time to fade before maybe you head off out. I've read that this is normal for this to do as it's clearing out the unwanted toxins.
Overall, I really like this mask, It does exactly what it's supposed to do and my skin feels extremely soft and smooth after. I wouldn't recommend leaving it on for more than 30 minutes as it may tighten your skin too much and leaving it unbearable to breathe.
For better effect, they recommend you use it everyday for a week but frankly that may be difficult for those who lead busy lives. It's still great to use it once or twice a week though and it still does the job you want it to do.
If you're interested in giving this a try. Head over to their official website to order yours now:
JUST TO CLARIFY I WASN'T SENT THIS PRODUCT FOR FREE TO REVIEW. I SPECIFICALLY PURCHASED THIS MYSELF.
I'm always keen to try out new products and test them for myself to see whether I like them.
Teeth whitening products are something I don't always use often which I thought I'd give it a try!
I'm never usually one for showing off my teeth as I'm very conscious of them. I'm getting braces very soon which I'm looking forward to so you may see me smile more as then I'll be more confident.
A brand named GreatWhites UK very generously sent me their teeth whitening product to try from their range. The products are small sachets of whitening paste which you swirl around inside your mouth for 15-20 minutes.
Am I impressed? Yes! Very impressed. I used the 14-day course to try for 2 weeks and I can really notice the difference in how fresh my mouth feels and whiter my teeth look.
I like them because they are 100 per cent organic and it's good to know you aren't putting anything bad in your mouth that isn't natural ingredients. I always make sure I use organic ingredients whenever I can as I like to know I'ts all natural and nothing harsh with chemicals.
These doesn't taste horrible at all, I thought they might taste too minty and overpowering but it's not that bad at all. It's literally just like using mouthwash for a longer period of time.
As you can tell, there is a huge difference! That's only in 14 days. I was amazed at how much it works and really brightens my teeth.
Before, my teeth were a little stained, hence why I'm never confident with showing my teeth but now they are almost beaming, I can feel much more confident in showing off my smile.
Thanks to GreatWhites UK, I have my smile back. I really look forward to ordering my next pack as it's very impressive as you can tell by my results.

Skincare has always been so important to me. I'm a huge fan of using body scrubs in my skincare routine. I always use a body scrub 2/3 times a week so I get that extra smooth, soft skin when you get out of the shower. There's nothing better than the feeling of freshness and being super clean.
Seeing as I've probably used every body scrub across the market, I've now come across Scrub Love. They're 100% organic and made from coffee beans. They have additional scents with extra oils in them including Almond, Coconut and Orange oils.
I was super excited when my box arrived and very happy that I was very generously sent all three to try! The packaging is really simple but pretty. Very well presented.
They very kindly sent me all three from their range - Original Lovin, Mint Temptation and Coconut Affair.
The reason I love these scrubs is that not only they just scrub my skin and get rid of dean skin cells, it makes my body feel moisturised, which they include loads of oils and natural ingredients.
They're so simple to use. Just peel off the strip at the top of the packet and grab a small amount onto your hands and scrub into your skin using circular motions. I like the fact, you don't need too much. Just very little will do the job. Other scrubs I've used before in the past, you need a lot to cover your body but this is literally perfect. It's nice because it's very thick as I've noticed others can be a little stingy on the amount of grains they put in. So you certainly get your money's worth!
I never really tend to use organic ingredient in my bath and body cosmetics so It's nice to be able to try something different, something that's natural. I feel it makes me feel body confident within my skin.
You can use it on your face as well. You can definitely see the results in how clear your skin looks with a shine-free face. I'm very impressed.
Of course, I'm going to keep using these scrubs as I feel they work for me. I'm sure if they work for me, they can work for anyone!
