Coventry Lush Meet

Last Friday I attended a Lush meet in Coventry, the lovely Emily from drainedbeauty organised the event for us all, and it was a first for Emily organising this event and she did wonderful.
Me and some other ladies joined outside Lush Coventry at around 19:00 on Friday all looking forward to get inside to view some Lush loveliness, once inside we got the chance to have a look around and have some demonstrations of some of the most popular products of the moment, a personal favourite of mine is the Northern Lights £3.50. The Lush team talked us through this years Christmas gifts and we even had the chance to create our own Cinders, I had to contain the excitement. 

I did go a little mad with the purchases, this was a result of me seeing the Christmas range for the first time this year, finally, so I had to get a few little treats...

 So I got Farther Christmas Bath Bomb £3.50, Sweetie Pie Jelly £3.50, Snow Fairy Shower Gel £3.75, Montalbano Shampoo Bar £5.75, Shampoo Bar Tin £2.50, Golden Wonder Bath Bomb £3.75, Norther Lights Bath Bomb £3.50, Star Light Star Bright Bath Me £3.50 and a Cinders Bath Bomb £2.50 that I created myself.

 All items are available from Lush Online, we also got given some little gifts from Lush including Bûche de Noël £6.50 and Baked Alaska Snowball Soap £3.25.

 Some treats got given to us curtesy of Emily, included in our #dbbloggermeetup bags we had some Propercorn Sweet & Salty popcorn, Nail HQ Ridge Filler, Yu! Fruit Strawberry Mini Chews, Crabtree & Evelyn ultra-moisturising hand therapy in Iced Rose, Skinetica anti-blemish super toner and a marsh mellow created by boomf.

 I'm off to Birmingham on Friday for a meet which I can't wait for, I'll have to keep you up to date on how that goes, I hope you have enjoyed this little read, I'm so glad that more meets are happening closer to home, we have a lot more going on in Birmingham and Coventry which is really great.

America Haul

I'm finally getting around to doing my American haul...
Since I returned home from the States I haven't rested, I had another holiday to Futerventura which was great although I got home and it was Winter, and although its my favourite season I still hate the weather, nevertheless it just means I'm allowed to get a little excited for Christmas.

Anyway on with the haul, first of all I just want to point out that I had of course been looking forward to visiting Bath & Body Works oh please come to the U.K and Sephora least I can purchase online, however I was really restrained and just purchased the things that I really liked and that I thought I would us...
