You've Got To Love Lush

Ahh, Lush! Lush products just make the perfect Christmas gift for girly girls, don't they?! Well not just Christmas - birthdays too, Valentine's day, maybe Easter, Halloween... (okay, maybe not). It'd be great if you received presents for all of them, wouldn't it? ;)

So I received the Lush "Christmas Candy Box" for Christmas and I tried to make the photo look Christmassy by chucking a bit of tinsel around the products (did it work?!) In the box, I received four items. I think most (or all) of these items are just available around Christmas time, so they may be hard to come by during the year - but they may still be available in the sale that's currently on at Lush, so get yourself there if you want to pick up any of these items for a much cheaper price.

1 Snow Fairy Shower Gel
Unfortunately, I can't link this product to the Lush website because it's only available around Christmas, but like I said before there may be some still available in the sale. This has such a sweet, candy scent (steer clear if you hate super-sweet scents!) The bright pink colour combined with the glittery bits makes the appearance really pretty and the smell reminds me of candy floss!

 2 Candy Mountain Bubble Bar
Hahaha, it made me laugh when I saw this; obviously something went wrong in the production or something seeing as it's lopsided, but it'll still work nonetheless! ;) Another sweet scent, this mainly smells of bubblegum. If you don't know how to use a bubble bar, you basically crumble it in your hand under running water and your bath then becomes filled with all these vanilla-scented, pink bubbles. I've had this before and I can't wait to use it once again. Again, it's not available through the website as it's a Christmas special, but you may be able to pick it up in the sale.

 3 Butterbear Bath Bomb
How cute is this? It's basically the ever-so popular Butterball (that's available all year round) but molded into a little bear shape. Made with cocoa butter, it's supposed to leave your skin feeling incredibly soft - it apparently also leaves a vanilla scent on your skin! I can't wait to have him in my bath hehe!

 4 Rock Star Soap
Now the "Rock Star" soap is available all year round -yay!! Again, it smells sooo sweet as it has vanilla running through it. The creamy texture persuades me into believing it'll be moisturising and quite similar to the 'Butterbear', so I'm looking forward to using this! Plus, seeing as it's a soap I'll probably get a few uses out of it.

I might update you either through my blog, Twitter or Instagram on how I got on with these products once I've used them, so look out for that if you're interested in knowing!

Are there any classic Lush products that are your all-time favourite?
Let me know in the comments :)

Ideal Accomplishments For 2015

(not my photo...obviously, have you seen it?!)

I hope everyone had a lovely Christmas with whoever they spent it with (and ate enough to see you into the new year) - I know I did! I'd also like to say a big thanks to everybody who entered my giveaway and continued to promote it through Twitter; the winner has received her prize, which included products from Elf, Lush, The Body Shop, Rimmel and of course Caprilicious Jewellery, who teamed up with me for the giveaway.

In order for me to get back into the blogging game, I've decided to kick start myself off with a typical New Year's resolutions post. I know it's not everyone's cup of tea, as the concept of failing within the first week is quite frankly, probable! But I've decided to set myself a few little goals that I'd like to have accomplished by the time we're waiting for 2016 to approach.

1Pass my driving test
2Come to a decision about what I'd like to do after college
3Start earning some money!
4Get decent A level results
5Stop procrastinating!
6Develop a unique/distinctive blogging 'style' of writing
7Blog more!
8See family more often
9Say yes more!
10Be in a happy/content place in my life :)

What are your New Year's resolutions?
