How bright and beautiful a colour yellow is, and I defy you to not be cheered up just looking at this sunny lot! 1.This gorgeous yellow nail polish from Chanel, is Giallo Napoli from last year's Spring Collection, which I blogged about when Chanel hadn't removed us from their … [Read more...]

Lush Knot Wraps

I love these Knot Wraps from Lush. I bought a few last year. They're a great idea, and you can use them again  - and that's why Lush reckon they are a great idea for National Re-Gifting Day, which is Thursday, December 15 this year. National Re-Gifting Day, more of a US than UK thing, is when you re-gift a gift. Now, we don't suggest handing on any old tat you don't like, BUT, if someone gave you a lovely gift wrapped in one of these, then … [Read more...]

Bathtime at Lush. Literally.

The Lush Spa is like no other, and their treatments can be pretty quirky. The last time I had a treatment in the Edinburgh Spa, I wasn't sure what to make of it. I've not been invited back since...! This new one, Tales of Bath, has me, again, in two minds about whether I would love it or hate it. It involves having a bath - which I am still trying to get my head around. A bath, for me, is a private, intimate time, when I like to kick back, … [Read more...]

Earth Day/Week/Month Beauty News

It's Earth Day tomorrow - April is Earth Month, and this sees the start of Earth Week. I am a wee bit confused, but the beauty companies have their hearts in the right places when it comes to this cause. Lush are celebrating Earth Day by encouraging us to strip off the excess packaging and trial a range of beautiful, handmade, naked products? They're better for the environment, while still being brilliantly effective. Did you know that  35% of … [Read more...]

Mother’s Day Lush Fun

Here's a funny - maybe a bit cheeky - little Mother's Day gift! Is there any Mother more superior than your own?! This fab little Mother Superior character Bubble Bar made me chortle. I love it! It is scented with cherry blossom, and is the perfect relaxation aid for any mums this weekend! This isn't the only lovely Mother's Day gift from Lush, of course, who have a habit (see what I did there...) of creating fun products for every … [Read more...]

Lush beauty film: The Experimenter

Got a few minutes to spare? Need to completely relax? Then Lush are here to help with an amazing film, featuring nothing but their own fresh, handmade products and ingredients - and remember nothing is tested on animals. Called 'The Experimenter' it is choreographed to an original emotive score using a 45-piece orchestra and choral ensemble, creating a mesmerising cinematic piece of art. That might sound a bit OTT  - but wait until you watch it. … [Read more...]

Lush’s Colourful Christmas

I once spent time in New York working with a woman who had an aversion to colour. She wore black all the time, and baulked at my love of all things bright and bold. I was reminded of her when I spent an evening in Lush in Edinburgh recently getting acquainted with their amazing - and colourful - Christmas collection. I can't imagine what her reaction would be if she entered a Lush store! Lush is like a sanctuary in many ways - head there this … [Read more...]

Halloween at Lush

Lush never fail to deliver, do they!? Hallowe'en at Lush for 2014 sees the arrival of a few new - and amazing- treats. Makes me want to spend the whole of Hallowe'en in the bath - and not dooking for apples in it! Their new Northern Lights bath bomb (£3.35), inspired by The Night Circus book by Erin Morgenstern, creates an illusion of a night sky during the Northern Lights! It creates an array of blue and neon green colours, with popping candy … [Read more...]

LUSH’s anti-badger cull Bath Bomb

LUSH have launched this cute as a button badger bath bomb for a very good cause. Every penny of LUSH's new badger inspired, May Day bath bomb (minus the VAT which has to go to the Government) goes towards anti-badger cull projects in the UK, including SAVE ME, the animal welfare organisation founded in 2010 by Queen guitarist Brian May. But you will have to be quick because this little badger is available for one month only! With fennel oil to … [Read more...]
