Mini Lush Haul


I recently made a trip to the Lush Store, which when you walk in you are instantly filled with nice scent fragrances. I love the fact that everything is handmade. My favorite items to get from Lush store are bath bombs and bubble bars. Here are the items that I purchase to  make this mini haul. 

Dragon's Egg - Bath Bomb 
The Dragon's Egg bath bomb is filled with a citrus scent of lemon and bergamot. To use any of the Lush bath bombs you will fill your bathtub with warm water and simply drop the bath bomb in. The bath bomb will begin to fizz and with the case of the Dragon's Egg it is described to fizz to to a glittery golden surprise. 

Sleepy - Body Lotion 
The sleepy body lotion comes is the light purple color and has calming scents such as lavender and tonka. The lotion is very moisturizing with cocoa butter, almond oil and glycerin. Since this my first time using this product I opted for the smaller 3.1 oz size just to make sure I would use it and that it works okay with my skin. I have been trying this product for over a week now and I do like it is very moisturizing, when applying it feels a little thick but nothing sticky. The scent is very calming which is perfect for night time, but I use this in  the morning as well. 

Lip Scrub - Bubblegum 
Bubblegum lip scrub consist of a fine castor sugar that gently exfoliate your lips and mixed with organic jojoba oil that helps with hydration. When using the lip scrub, the packaging states use a small amount and safe enough to eat. I use this product at nighttime and wipe away product with a wipe/towel. Afterwards I do apply a lip balm.

My Current Perfume Obessions


Lately I have been just loving some of my current perfumes this year, I am always in search of what I would describe as "my signature scent". I love love love floral scents  and when scrolling below that would be a given. If you are a floral scent lover like myself or if you are interested in exploring a new scent I would like to share my most favorites perfumes that I have been using thus far : 

1.  Giorgio Armani - Si Eau de Parfum 

This scent is described as having deep black currant nectar, airy florals and musky blond wood.  I happen to discover this scent from a perfume sampler that I purchased from sephora. This has been my staple go to scent, its not overpowering and last all day. I love floral scents and this have been favorite of my throughout the year.

2.Chanel - CoCo Mademoiselle Eau de Parfum

This classic scent has notes of bergamot, orange, jasmin, rose, patchouli, vetiver, white musks and vanilla. When wearing this scent you will definitely received compliments all day. This is another scent that last all day long, this was scent that was recommend from a friend and I have love it ever since. 

3. Elizabeth & James - Nirvana Rose

This is classic floral scent, I use it as a night time scent, it is very bold ( not in a bad way, in a I want you to know what you are wearing way) and spicy. I must admit that it's not for everyone, but I love it. A little goes a long way and as it wears throughout the day it has a great scent.  This perfume has notes of geranium, rose and vetiver.

4. Dior -Miss Dior  Blooming Bouquet 

My last favorite fragrance is of course another floral scent with notes of Sicilian orange essence, pink peony, Damascus rose and white musk. This a light everyday scent it instantly became a staple for me.

I think the box is very functional and there are multiple products included I would think everyone can use and enjoy. One product I use already is the Dephue Apple Cider Vinegar Rinse and I really like how it cleanse my hair. You will smell the Apple Cider Vinegar scent but it wasn't overpowering. I use as instructed, messaging into my scalp for 3-5 minutes, for me the product did lather up a little which I was fine with that, and once rinsed out I did feel like my scalp was refreshed. I can't get over the Private Party Gym Bag with the saying "Gym and Juice", its too cute . Also the Mer Sea & Co Scarf feels so soft and fluffy, perfect for when the much cooler air hits in my area of Chicago. Also how cute is the wire heart ceramic jewerly holder, it can be use on a desk, nightstand, bathroom counter, anywhere you want to add a bit of charm.
