Lush Mint Julips Lip Scrub


Lush Lip Scrub - £5.25

As the weather has been getting colder by the day, this yummy Lip scrub has been a saviour for my dry chapped lips.

Lush Mint Julips lip scrub uses Castor sugar as a gentle exfoliator along with jojoba oil which moisturises and leaves lips feeling lovely and soft.

It's so easy to exfoliate your lips by rubbing a small amount of this sugar scrub over your lips gently buffing away any dry skin, then you simply lick/wipe it off! 

I use this every night before I put on one of my favourite lip balms which together, have really helped my lips to stay smooth and hydrated.

Lush lip scrubs come in a few different flavours, I picked up Mint Julips as it was my favourite smell but Popcorn, their Christmas Lip Scrub version also smelled so good!

Which is your favourite Lush lip scrub?

Get Ready With Me ❤ Christmas Day

Hope you guys all had a wonderful Merry Christmas yesterday!! Since I'm moving away to NYC in less than two weeks, presents were light (since I can't take much up with me) but family time was still heavy. I won't go into too much detail since I'm planning on doing a Christmas post so I'll just jump right into my Christmas Day look.

I was originally planning on wearing a bright red cherry sweater, leggings, and scarf (as seen in the video). However, since this IS Florida, after wearing this outfit for no more than 20 minutes, I started sweating unbearably and had to change into something a little more breathable. Hence, the second outfit.

Either way, I knew I wanted to wear red to match my bold red lips. I originally wanted to wear my MAC "Ruby Woo" Matte Lipstick but couldn't find it (I still have lots of unpacking to do from Tallahassee) so I went with my Kate Moss Rimmel Lipstick instead (paired with my Revlon "Candy Apple" Lip Butter which I LOVE). Since I decided to go for such dramatic lips, I downplayed everything else. Very neutral eyes and I passed on bronzer and instead used MAC's "Soft & Gentle" Mineralize Skinfinish to give my super pale skin a touch of warmth.

Oh, and for my hair, I was feeling my natural waves so I literally didn't do anything to my hair but spritz it with some leave-in conditioner.

Ta-da! What do you guys think??

What did you all do for Christmas??

HAUL: Dior, Chanel, and MAC

Merry Christmas Eve, you guys!!

So this haul is a LONG time coming!! It feels like I bought these products AGES ago and I just haven't had time to film a proper haul video. Believe me, this is something I've been wanting to do, but I knew with this many products (and how much I love to talk), I needed at least a good hour to film alone..and I was right! I filmed over 40 minutes of footage...yikes! Sometimes I amaze myself with how much I can ramble on and on about makeup. Luckily, I was able to slim it down to 17 minutes which is still longer than both of my previous hauls combined. Props to anyone who actually watches the whole thing haha.

You'll notice a trend starting to happen in a couple of battery dying mid filming. It's so frustrating especially since I have to use natural light and the sun seems to be going down earlier and earlier each day so by the time I had charged it a little (I think I literally had it charging for only 15 minutes) the lighting had significantly grown darker.

I also wanted to point out that I had one more MAC Lipstick - "Jubilee" - but it seems my cat, Zuko, who loves to jump on my dresser, knocked it underneath the dresser and I did not find it until after filming :(

Have you tried any of these products?

Outfit of the Night ❤ Saturday

I wasn't quite sure what my plans for the evening were so I wanted something simple but versatile that would work wherever the night took me. I kept it casual with my favorite pair of Topshop jeans, but dressed it up with a sequin tank from Express over a black bandeau. I accessorized with a mixture of gold and silver jewelry,  my Candie's wedges, and of course my oxblood Rebecca Minkoff bag. Finally, I loved how my bright blue nail polish popped against everything.

- Express top
- Charlotte Russe bandeau
- Topshop jeans
- Candie's wedges
- Forever21 bracelet and earrings
- Henri Girl Boutique bracelet
- Rebecca Minkoff Mini MAC bag
- butter LONDON "Blagger" nail polish

Haha, my toe is trying to escape my shoe straps XD What did you guys wear this weekend?

Lush Christmas - Golden Wonder


Lush Golden Wonder bath ballistic - £3.25 

This has to be one of the cutest things from the Lush Christmas Collection. It's meant to smell like a light fizzy champagne cocktail, it definitely smells fruity to me, but not really at all christmassy. 

The best thing about this bath ballistic was watching it fizzy away in a swirl of golds, blues and greens, spitting out little stars as it went. Although it left a pretty slight golden shimmer to my skin when I got out, it also left the bath covered in gold which wasn't great to scrub away afterwards!

This is one of the biggest bath ballistics that I've seen from lush and so it does feel like you're getting your value for money. If you like fizzy, fruity scents then I would definitely recommend trying this ballistic, if not only for the oooh's and ahhh's watching it fizz away!
