I always make little lists of what to buy after looking at the Lush website, but don’t usually make my way into the shop – there’s just too much to choose from. Jag, a lovely SA, helped me pick out the scents & textures that I was looking for.
I love the smell of blackcurrants, limes, lemons & grapefruit (all citrus.) Clean zingy scents & fruity scents are my favourites.
Happy Hippy smells like grapefruit, Ocean Salt of salty lime, & Sandstone of lemon. Sweetie Pie smells like blackcurrants, or You Snap The Whip. I got a sample of Big to try – I’m hoping for miracles. I took my friend along with me to get ‘Lushed.’ He doesn’t have the most regimented of skincare routines so he kept it simple & got Ocean Salt to scrub & Enzymion to moisturise. (Karolina at White City was so helpful & a lot of fun to talk to!)
I’ve been meaning to pick up Topshop Cream Blush in Head Over Heels for a while. I’ve heard it’s a great dupe for Something Special Cremeblend blush by MAC (I don’t love the Cremeblend formula.) At the moment it’s a tad light for me unless I pile it on, but I do love the shade & formula.
Waitrose Baby Bottom Butter smells like white chocolate. It feels whipped, silky on the skin & doesn’t leave me greasy. I’d read a few articles claiming it was better than sliced bread as an all round moisturiser, & seeing that Jessica had swapped for a tub, I had to try it out for myself. So far so good – I’m using it at night mainly but need to decant it into a smaller tub for my bag.
I couldn’t say no to the adorable hot water bottle & cover! It’s not really the weather for it right now, but it’s cold in England 95% of the time, so it’ll come in handy I’m sure. I picked up a larger Rhodia notebook because the one I’ve got is small & fiddly for anything other than lists.
I’ve never heard of Love Magazine before. It’s a fashion/photography magazine that’s released twice per year. For £6 you get 426 pages of beautifully shot fashion shoots, ads & articles. There’s a great shoot featuring Lindsey Wixson that I forgot to photograph too (I love Lindsey.) I don’t study fashion, but I love photography. For that, it’s a catalogue of inspiration.
