Lush boxing day haul

I've got to say, Lush done pretty well in their 50% off sale this year I mean I got four bath bombs for around £6! I never really go out on Boxing Day mainly because living in London means that all public transport is packed with other eager shoppers but I was pleasantly surprised to find that the Bakerloo line was empty. The Lush store on Oxford street was also quite empty, possibly because I was there early. The majority of the store was filled with the Christmas range which was all half price meaning I had so much choice, I didn't want to buy an extortionate amount because I've done that one too many times (teehee) so I stuck to ones I knew I'd use.

Cinders bath bomb, £1.48:
I think this smells of caramel ,which I is weirdly comforting, despite the fact the website states otherwise and says it's cinnamon and almond oil. Doesn't the name Cinders remind you of Cinderella?

Dashing santa bath bomb, £1.48:
The name of this bath bomb is quite fitting to what Santa does- one night a year. This has quite a fresh scent and from what I can see online, leaves the bath water a very bright orange so this seems fun.

Peeping santa bubble bar, £1.98:
I've only ever tried one bubble bar and that's The Comforter (which smells just like ribena) Seeing as this was half price, smells like strawberries and has cocoa butter in it I had to get it.

Shoot for the stars bath bomb, £1.83:
This bath bomb reminds me of the Intergalactic I bought and used a few months ago, and judging from the description on the website I think it does the same thing too. Anyway, it looks super colourful so I look forward to using this.

Did you buy anything from the Lush sales?

December favourites

I feel as if I'm the only person who doesn't get overly excited about December, probably because I don't celebrate the festivities that come with it- nevertheless I managed to rack up a couple favourites this month.

Nars creamy concealer:
The name says it all, a super creamy and easy to blend concealer that works amazingly well at covering dark circles and redness.

Real Techniques miracle complexion sponge:
I bought this off Amazon a few weeks ago and haven't stopped using it soon, it's a really useful tool to have- I find the pointed side is great at blending more hard-to-reach areas.

Clinique clarifying lotion:
When I first started using this I hated it as it'd sting my skin and leave it soooo irritated but I decided to use it more frequently and it's started growing on me. It gently exfoliates and smooths your skin so it's ideal to use before moisturiser.

New Balance 373:
I've been needing a pair of trainers I could wear everyday as it's too cold to wear my very loved Vans, so on Black Friday I found these on Surfdome for £50, used an extra 10% code and got them for £45! They're extremely versatile and super comfy, I've worn them lots already.

What are your December favourites?

Can someone give feedback on this photo? I've taken it with my iPhone and I'm unsure of the quality

Grey Days

Merry Christmas. I've had an ongoing argument with myself, deliberating on how I should spell 'grey'. Recently I've started to gravitate towards grey clothing as opposed to my usual blacks and navy's, I was looking through the Shein website so many items caught my eye as well as Zara- but that's nothing new. I definitely know what I'll be buying on boxing day!

What colour have you been wearing lots of lately?
