So, you may or may not know that I love Lush.

I have done a few hauls over here on my blog before and I usually do one at this time of year because of the Jan sales… and this year was no exception, which is surprising as its such a strange time.

What Lush did this year was that they sent out a list of what products were on sale and their sale price (50% off 🙌🏻) and you rang through your order, paid online and collected in store, socially distanced.

It worked really well and it meant we could still get some bargin goodies.

Me and my twin sister sarah always grab some Lush bargains in the January sales so we were delighted that we still could (and even more so now that we are again in another lockdown! What else is there to do but have a bath when you are bored!?!)


Let’s see what I picked up in the sale…

Shoot for the stars
Golden Wonder
Snow Fairy Bath Bomb & Snow Fairy Bubblebar
Snow fairy bath bomb
Buttervear
Jurassic Spark gift box
A robot and a dinosaur bath bomb!

I was super happy with my purchases! A few of these I have tried before, but I hadn’t tried anything from the Jurassic Spark Box so that’s exciting.

What are your LUSH faves?

Until Next Time,

Blogmas Day Twelve: A festive, but productive day ðŸŽ„🛍🛁


So, here we are! Day Twelve.

Today has been both festive, productive and fun.. my kind of weekend in the run up to Christmas.

Me & hubby had a little lazy start, followed by a yummy breakfast because there is no better way to start a weekend.

After that I went Christmas shopping with my sister, which was fun!

And we well and truely shopped until we dropped.

But, I managed to get the everything that I needed!! Which is awesome.. I mean, I nearly lost an arm under the weight of my bags, but its all good because the Christmas shopping is done!


When I got home from town I had a nice, relaxing, festive bath.

Gotta love a Lush Festive Bath product.

This one smells so good and is a reusable bubble bar! ‘Elfie Stick’

It was so nice to chill after a fun but hectic time in town.

Feeling refreshed, I have now spent the evening sorting out what I bought, wrapping some more presents.

Super festive!


I’m now about to start decorating our second tree… because I decided one was enough and so I grabbed another one today, in town.

What’s your idea of a fun, festive day?

Until Next Time,

Roseanne 🙂

What I got for my birthday!


As you may know from my previous post ’28 🥳’ I recently celebrated my 28th birthday.

I love reading/watching peoples ‘What I got for my birthday’ blogs/vlogs so I thought I would do it again this year.


**Disclaimer**

I’m not boasting, I really just like to show my appreciation for my presents and remember them when I look back on my posts & I know some people like these kinds of blog posts too.


Let’s get started.

My main birthday present from my husband Tim was my coffee machine.

I’ve wanted one for a little while but it’s a bit of a luxury so I haven’t bought one, my birthday seemed like a good opportunity to add it to my list and I was very lucky to get one.

Tim bought me the Nespresso Lattissima One.

I love it! Especially the milk frother as it makes delicious lattes, my favourite coffee. 😋

My sister bought me these cute glass mugs to go with it.


I love reading! So I always welcome receiving books for my birthday.

Mrs Hinch’s book was on my list as I like her, her insta is hilarious!! My older sister got me this one.

My work friend got me a little book all about Mindfulness as I really enjoyed the positivity of my ‘Mindfulness March’ challenge.

& Tim chose the book ‘The house across the street’ for me as he thought I would enjoy it 😊


I LOVE bath stuff, especially Lush bath bombs! And I got a good little haul this year. I cant wait to try these all out.

One of the most exciting bath bombs I got was ‘The Comforter’ it’s my absolute fave Lush product as the bubble bar but now it’s a bath bomb too 🙌🏻

I also picked out these lovely bubble baths when me and Tim were in Tesco just before my birthday. They smell incredible.

Fruity and honey/vanilla scents are my ultimate fave when it comes to bubble bath and these are just amazing, they almost smell good enough to eat!!

I also got lots of lovely shower gels and a super cute polka dot travel toiletries bag that can hang up in the shower, pretty & practical!


I got a couple of Harry Potter bits for my birthday too.

I got this cool book from my brother in law which has all the different character wands in it and lots of information about them which is really cool.

I also got this cute little coin purse from my Mum. This is perfect for travelling and when using a smaller bag, plus its in the shape of a golden snitch, what’s not to love!


Along the lines of Harry Potter, my lovely husband Tim bought me and Sarah a Harry Potter activity themed day out in London. We will be having Magical Harry Potter afternoon tea and attending a magical potions cocktail class in the evening. Its going to be so epic, I can’t wait!!!!!!!!!!! ⚡⚡

I’ll pop the details below incase you are interested in that kind of thing:

‘The Cauldron’ Cocktail potions class

The Potions Room Afternoon tea


I also got lots of yummy chocolatey treats…

& a great selection of new nail varnishes including some pretty pastels, summery coral and colour changing heat/cool gel nail varnishes.

& the standard birthday pyjamas.


I love my Auntie presents from my favourite little people too 🥰


I hope you enjoyed having a little look at my pressies.

Here’s to my 28th year!

Until next time,

Roseanne 🙂

What I got for Christmas 2017! ðŸŽ

Hi guys!

Let me start by saying HAPPY NEW YEAR! ITS OFFICIALLY 2018, CRAZY!

I hope that you guys had a great Christmas. I love watching and reading what people got for Christmas so I thought that I should share with you what I received.

This isn’t meant to be me bragging about what I got, I just thought that it would be fun to do!

So, lets take a look…

 

Books

IMG_20180110_211817_073

Jamie Oliver’s 5 ingredients: Quick & Easy food.

This is a cook book with lots of super easy and yummy ideas. I love the idea that there are only five ingredients for each recipe, it really puts me off when there is a massive list of ingredients, ain’t nobody got time for that!

Fantastic beasts and where to find them, by J K Rowling.

I also received the illustrated version of J K Rowling’s Fantastic beasts and where to find them. The pictures are beautiful and this book works so well with pictures, perfect! ⚡️

 

Make up

IMG_20180110_220101_808.jpg

I was very lucky this year with my make up haul. My lovely hubby bought me Tanya Burrs ‘Beauty and the feast’ make up box and it is AWESOME. It is full of great products from palettes for the eyes and face, highlighter, lipsticks and lipglosses. My  friend Demi works for Dior and gave me some cool samples to try out as well as a lovely pinky NYX lipstick. I also got another NYX lipstick this one is a liquid lipstick in the shade ‘Istanbul’.

Skincare/bath products

IMG_20180110_220231_743

I was very lucky to also receive the Zoella pamper box set. You get a brilliant selection of products in there, perfect for a pamper. I love the Snowella scent, its really fresh. I especially like the scent in the hand cream.

In the box you get…

  • The Winter Wonderhand Hand cream
  • Body puff
  • Snow silky body lotion
  • Snow polished body polish
  • Snow smooth body butter
  • X2 Sachets of a ‘splash of milk’ bath milk powder

The box is really lovely too, perfect for storage once you’ve used the products.

IMG_20180110_220150_959.jpg

The Body Shop shower gel. I really love these body shop shower gels, the seasonal scents are lovely. I really enjoyed the pumpkin and sweet vanilla scent in Autumn and in Winter they have released this one, Frosted berries. It smells so fruity and delicious.

IMG_20180110_211853_401

LUSH is one of my favourite shops and I LOVE their bath bombs. This year I got a few different things from LUSH that I havn’t had before and a few that I have.

My sister got me my favourite LUSH product off all time, ‘The Comfort.er’ bubble bar. A super fruity scent that creates the most awesome bubbles

I also got the Butterbear bath bomb which is lovely and soft on your skin, with cocoa butter.

My hubby got me one of LUSH’S new body sprays, the one he got me is called ‘Twilight’ This is supposed to help you sleep and the predominant fragrance is Lavender, it smells so soothing and makes you feel relaxed and cosy. I spray this before bed and use alongside ‘Sleepy’ the body lotion.

In the colourful set above,  the ‘Intergalactic’ bath set, you get the ‘Thundersnow’ bath bomb, The ‘Shoot for the stars’ bath bomb and the ‘Intergalactic’ bath bomb. I can’t wait to try these out!

 

Other…

IMG_20180110_211833_109.jpg

I also received some vouchers. A Primark Voucher, my favourite shop! I’m looking forward to spending that! Me and the hubby also got a Nando’s voucher, we cant wait to go on a date night and use that too, we love a cheeky Nando’s.

InkedIMG_20180110_215943_580_LI.jpg

My father In law (knowing the avid Harry Potter fan that I am) got me two tickets to the Harry Potter book night at our local museum. Me and my sister tried to get tickets for this event last year but it sold out! We can’t wait to go, the place is decorated, everyone dresses up and you have activities, food, Harry Potter themed cocktails and so on. Its going to be so much fun!

terry's2-xlarge_trans++4cHFBfxHqfroyKoKkNhhsIOb6wYDoBFLKDEGDsm5ADg

Is it even Christmas if you don’t ett a Terry’s chocolate orange!?!? These are my ultimate fave, a Christmas must have and a great stocking filler too. Mine didn’t make it past Christmas day haha.

So those are just a few of the lovely pressies that I got for Christmas this year (or technically last year!! So confusing)

I hope you enjoyed this blog post! I’m going to have to start a list of some blog posts I’d like to write in the coming weeks/months, it was so easy throughout December to create Christmassy and festive posts but now I really need to get thinking about my 2018 content, its so much harder without such a blatent theme.

Any suggestions would be greatly welcome guys!

 

Until next time,

Roseanne 🙂

New fave Lush product ðŸ›€

‘Somewhere between hot pudding, dripping in caramel, and crunchy cinder toffee, for the most luxurious of washes.’

It smells A-MAZ-ING.

I’m not usually a soap user to be honest, I see it as a bit of an old fashioned method of cleaning, it’s all about shower gel these days isn’t it really?!

However, I challenge anyone to walk past this in Lush and not stop! I didn’t even go in to buy it but, as I walked past, the scent of it filled my nostrils and I had to find out what it was. 

It has a lovely creamy, honeycomb scent that stays on your skin throughout the day! I keep getting whiffs of it as I walk around work and it’s great.

You feel lovely and clean and a bit pampered too, move over Dove!

It costs £4.25 for 100g and the pre wrapped piece I picked up was about that price, although it’s great that you can pick and choose the size of your chunk. 

This will definatly be on my stocking filler list this year. 

100% check this out next time your in Lush 👌

Happy body, happy mind! ðŸ›€ðŸ™ðŸ˜Œ

Hi! I’m back, it’s been too long (Over a week!!) I feel like I’ve had no time at the moment so I took this evening out to have a bit of ‘me time’ and to actually write a blog post. 

It’s really important to take time out to relax especially if you feel like things are getting on top of you. Do things that you enjoy but havn’t been able to do, preferably something stress free and relaxing. Life can be busy and chaotic and we often put ourselves last, I think we are all guilty of this from time to time.

So what do I like to do to chill out? I love a good pamper. I’ve really got into bath/skin/body products recently and I just love an opportunity to soak and freshen up. 

I started by running myself a lovely hot bath and getting out my products.

For my bath: 

  • Lush ‘Flamingo’ bubble bar
  • Lush ‘Butterbear’ bath bomb
  • Radox ‘Feel pampered’ bath soak with shea butter and ginger

When I’m in the bath I like to pamper myself further with some lovely skincare…

Skincare/face/body

  • Witch ‘Naturally clear bursting beads’ face wash
  • Vasanti ‘Brighten up!’ Enzymatic face rejuvinator
  • Superdrugs fruity ‘Orange and satsuma’ shower gel
  • Zoella ‘Pretty polished’ sugar scrub 
  • Nspa beauty rituals ‘Radiance boosting’ face mask 
  • Zoella ‘Creamy madly dreamy’ body lotion

After I’d scrubbed with my sugar scrub (this feels lovely rubbed into dry skin and then rinsed off) washed myself & washed my face I then applied my face mask and left this on for 15 minutes. 

I love to wash my hair when I am having a bath too for a completely clean and fresh feeling. Some of my favourite shampoos and conditioners are…

Shampoos and conditioners 

  • Superdrug Anti dandruff ‘Classic care’ shampoo
  • Aussie ‘Miracle moist’ shampoo
  • Argan oil ‘hydrating’ hair mask
  • Kebelo ‘Clarifying’ shampoo (for use once or twice a month, a nice treat!)

Going back to the products in the picture above, I love the Witch face wash and spot products and they have always worked for me going back to my mid teens. I’ve had a few breakouts recently which is why I re purchased the face wash and spot stick, I would 100% recommend their products. 

(Fingers crossed the face mask doesn’t make me break out even more!!)

Once I had washed off the mask I used my Vasanti face rejuvinator. When I’m out of the bath I always apply moisturiser to my face and today I even used my Zoella body lotion. I love the scent of her Creamy madly dreamy body lotion as it is from her original collection, my fave!

Just to mention, I also love candles and wax melts to help me relax so I popped one of my Crumble magic wax melts into my burner. Today I went for Raspberry lemonade that smells so fruity, fizzy and delicious. 

One final pamper product that I used was to give my feet a treat!  I used my foot pedi to get rid of any dry skin, then I used the foot scrub and finally I applied the foot lotion, ahhh.

Ps. A snack and a refreshing drink is always a winner too…

Last but not least, I hadn’t done my gel nails for a while so I thought this would be the perfect way to finish off my pamper evening, especially when I can do it sitting in front of the TV in my pjs! Perfection 👌

I am loving my Sensationail gel nail kit so much and I went for the raspberry/burgundy shade that came in the set, it’s called ‘Miss behave’.

Happy body, happy mind.

My sale bargains! ðŸ›

I love shopping so with our Christmas money in hand me and my sister went into town to see what we could pick up in the late December/January sales.

Here’s what I got!

First up I got this lovely fragrance set from Superdrug. 

The set is by Ghost and is their ‘Eclipse’ scent. The set came with a 30ml bottle of the fragrance and a cute rose gold compact mirror. It was only £15 and it smells amazing! I havnt had it before but me and my sister just thought it smelt so nice and great for popping in your bag!

Also from Superdrug I managed to grab a few bargains from Zoella’s Christmas range! 

I bought the ‘Best chums’ coin purses for me and my sister. These were only £2.99 in the sale. These are so cute.

I also bought her set of three make up bags, these are so pretty so I was so happy to see these in the sale. 

The large bag is clear with a coral strip across the top and Zoella written across the front in the same colour writing. The medium bag is a gorgeous pinky rose gold glitter, it’s beautiful and has Zoella written in white on the front. And finally, the small bag is a material one that says ‘Throw kindness round like confetti’ in rose gold font, I love that quote it’s so lovely.

These were £4.99 for all three. They are great to use as make up storage, to pop in your bag or for travelling.

And finally from Zoella’s range I got one of the Christmassy gift sets.

I love the design and packaging of Zoella’s Christmas range with the brown paper look background and printed on ribbon in the corners like it’s been gift wrapped.

This set is the ginger and vanilla fragrance set, pamper yourself with my brand new limited edition fragrance. It comes with a large bottle of the fragrance and a large bottle of her ginger cream body lotion. The design with the little gingerbread men is adorable.

I wasn’t sure about this scent to begin with but it’s definatly growing on me and is quite nice and sweet.

If you’ve seen my blog before you’ll know I love Lush and I missed the Boxing day sale (Gutted!) But when me and my sister went in they still had the ‘Butterbear’ bath bomb on offer. It was half price and only cost 98p!! 

I picked up two for me and two for my sister. I talked about this bath bomb in my Festive Lush Haul, it so lovely for your skin, it makes it super soft because it’s made of  cocoa butter, lovely.

From Boots I got an electric toothbrush. Sounds boring, I know! But highly useful and it was a bargin at £20, half the original price. 

Tim got one for Christmas so I thought I might as well get one too. It takes a bit of getting used to but your mouth does feel super clean 👍

And finally, from Waterstones me and my sister picked up Sam and Nic Chapman’s new book ‘Face’. 

It’s a lovely book about all things to do with your face from skincare, make up with different tips and tricks. If you don’t know them Sam and Nic are the ladies behind the ‘Real technique’ make up brushes. I love watching their make up tutorials on their YouTube channel ‘Pixiwoo’ so I can’t wait to look through it properly.

So those are my bargains! I was super happy with them 😊

What did you managed to pick up in the sales? 

Until next time,

What I got for Christmas!

I love reading and watching what people got for Christmas do I thought I would make my first blog post of 2017 just that.I’m not trying to brag about what I got, I just wanted to share the things that I kindly received. Also, I havnt included everything, just a selection and what I got in my stocking (because its one of the best bits of Christmas, you know I’m right!!)

So let’s go! 

I’ll start with my stocking as these are the first things I opened…

In my stocking I got some super cute pressies, I got some cosy reindeer slippers, cute polar bear earmuffs, a hand cream that is Vanilla frosting scented (so good!) A sausage dog ruler (that will be going to work with me!) A retro puzzle, chocolate (including my favourite, chocolate orange (yup it’s already gone.) And some yummy tea. A lovely selection, Santa did good 👌 

I was very lucky and got some lovely beauty products this year! I had asked for a few but didn’t know which I was going to end up with so it was still a nice surprise.

From Lush I got the ‘Ballistic’ bath bomb. This smells amazing and is double sided, the yellow side is the powdery texture of a bath bomb and the pink side is waxy. I can’t wait to try it out.

I also got three items from Zoella’s original beauty collection, The hand sanitizer, the ‘Creamy madly dreamy’ body lotion and the ‘Pretty polished’ body scrub. The scent of her original collection is my favourite so I was really excited when she added new items to the range.

From Soap and Glory I got the ‘Deep cleansing milk’ This melts away makeup and is a gorgeous cleanser that smells amazing. I’m using this as part of my skincare routine to remove my make up and it’s lovely.

I was also very lucky to get a few items from Tanya Burr’s Christmas collection.

The beauty holdall is so pretty and perfect for carrying toiletries or make up when travelling or as make up storage. It’s gold with little light pink lips all over it. I also got the ‘Tanya presents’ beauty box which is a lovely light blue box with little black stars and a gold trim. Inside the box you get two nail files with the star pattern, in light green and light pink as well as a ‘Smokey eye’ trio of eyeshadows that are called ‘Luna’, ‘Winter walk’ and ‘Dusk’. You also get her ‘Bambi eyes’ false lashes, a liquid highlighter, a miniature lip gloss in the colour ‘Afternoon tea’ and a mini compact mirror that’s light blue with cute little white dots. Such good value for money (especially as I found it in the sales just before Christmas for Tim) Such a lovely selection of products to try out.

This is one of the gorgeous palettes that she released this Christmas and I love it. This is a fab all round palette with everything you need to create a gorgeous make up look. Included in the palette is a blusher called ‘First kiss’ a highlighter called ‘Champagne shimmer’ four eyeshadows ‘Vanilla sugar’, ‘Toasted teacake’, ‘Hot chocolate and cream’ and ‘Cocoa dust’. The mini matte lipstick is in the shade ‘Martha moo’. I love this palette so much and I was so pleased that Martha moo was the lip shade as this is so hard to come by now. 

I love this present, it’s Sensationails gel starter kit. It comes with two gorgeous gel nail colours, all the equipment you need including a UV lamp, and a nail varnish to gel transformer so that you can  make your nail varnish into gel varnish. This is much cheaper than having gels done at a salon, more convenient and the fact that I can use my existing varnish and turn it into gel is so awesome, all my lovely colours in my collection won’t be wasted.

Some other lovely presents I got are…

These two books are amazing! As you’ll know, if you’ve seen my blog before, I love Harry Potter so I was super excited to see that they had brought out the second book in illustrated form, the pictures are beautiful. This Fantastic beasts book has loads of information on the making of the film, amazing photographs and little extra artefacts to do with the characters (see below)

I love how the book looks like Newts case and opens up on the side like his case!

I also got a VR headset from Tim. My sister got one for her husband in November and I had a go on it, it was really fun. I didn’t realise Tim had remembered me saying how much I enjoyed it but he obviously did! 

This was a lovely surprise and so much fun. I’ve downloaded lots of different apps to use, I love the horror ones even though it’s so realistic!! 😱

Me and Tim got these super cute pillowcases from his Auntie! They are ‘Mr and Mrs’ pillowcases, the ‘Mr’ one has a moustache under the word and the ‘Mrs’ one has some red lips under the word. These are so cute and a lovely present to receive for our first christmas as a married couple.

I love Cath Kidson and I really enjoy the adult colouring books so this is a perfect present for me. The patterns in this are all lovely Cath Kidson patterns. It shows you what they should look like if you want to follow the actual design or you can colour it how you like.

I got a gorgeous photograph of my newest nephew Casey. This one can join the one of Noah that is already on the wall. How cute is the fox costume?! 😍

And finally, I got this gorgeous necklace and earring set from Tim. 
It’s really special as it matches my engagement ring and is my favourite colour (it also happens to be my birthstone!) ♡

So pretty!

I hope you’ve enjoyed this snippet into what I got for Christmas and I hope that you got some lovely things too. 

Let’s make it a good one!

Until next time, 
Roseanne 🙂
