A long weekend away :)

I won’t be posting anything this weekend as I’m going away to Darwin Forest in Chesterfield for a family get together :) We all go every year, usually for bonfire weekend as there are fireworks and a huge bonfire. This year it’s my aunties 50th so she’s having a party on the Saturday night so no fancy dress for me :( But I think I’m going trick or treating round the cabins with my youngest cousin so that’ll be fun!
There isn’t any internet connection in the cabins nor is there any phone signal so I’ll be MIA on here, tumblr and twitter till Monday.
You can still enter my giveaway but I won’t be able to approve the comments till I get back.

I’m not going till tomorrow afternoon but today and tomorrow is going to be busy! I have to do my washing, pack/get ready to go and bake some cakes to take with us.
Hope everyone has a nice weekend!

Review: Lush The Fabulous Mrs Fox

I am only going to be reviewing the one on the left as I haven’t used the pumpkin one yet. My mum went to Lush to buy her friend a gift box and saw these two bath bombs and bought them for me :) The pumpkin is part of their limited edition Halloween collection a long with ghost shower gel, this Jacko bath bomb is so cute!
Their are a lot more Halloween goodies in the American Lush website which I really want and am really jealous.

The one on the left looks a bit odd but the orange bit is meant to be a foxes foot print like the picture below. I’ve broken it into pieces as it’s a bath melt. I only  use a little bit as the scent is so strong so I should get 4 more baths out of this. so £2.95 for 5 baths isn’t bad!
I break a chunk off and crumble it into running water in my tub, once it starts to melt really light and fluffy bubbles appear. I sometimes switch the shower on to create more bubbles but if you lucky people have a Jacuzzi jet bath you obviously don’t need this! Lush describes th…

Review: Botanics super balm

I’ve had this super balm for a few weeks now and have been using it on a regular basis.

Review: Soap and Glory Hand Food & Glam-a-lot body spray

I haven’t posted in a while and since I’m on a make-up buying ban I thought a couple of reviews would be the perfect posts to write :)

Soap and Glory Glam-a-lot body spray has become one of my favourite perfumes to use during the day. I bought this along with the two other sprays in a gift set, sationalism, for £8. This bottle is smaller than if you where to buy it on its own at only 100ml compared to 250ml for £6. I like the smaller size though, I always get bored of perfumes.
I’m really bad at describing scents so I’m not even going to try. Boots describes it as being “super sexy, warm, rich, racy and veritably voluptuous fragrant body spray with Fresh Flowers layered on a Woody, Vanilla Musk base.” That’s exactly how I would describe it if I was any good :) I love it as a day perfume but for me its not strong enough for night so I’ll use a different one depending on my mood.
The only bad thing I have to say is that the bottle leaks slightly if turned upside down or shaken so I won’t b…
