Lush Bubble Bars: Brightside & Amandopondo

Description of Photo Description of Photo Description of PhotoWhen it comes to Lush, their bubble bars are my absolute favourite. There is nothing better than having a nice, warm bath with a mound full of bubbles and amazing fragrances. Whenever I get chance to go in, I always find myself drifting towards the bubble bar section. What I like about the bubble bars is that you can chop them into smaller pieces without loosing any of their properties: they still smell amazing, produce the same amount of bubbles and make them last so much longer!

When I popped into Lush a few weeks ago I picked up Brightside and Amandopondo to try out as I haven't had them before. Both of them have "citrusy" scents which I love as I find it really refreshing and really wakes you up if you're having a morning bath. Brightside is almost the same as The Comforter however it has a much stronger scent. Huge notes of orange and bergamot break out the moment you crush it amongst your bath water. It also tints the bath water to a bright orange colour which looks amazing! 

Amandopondo on the other hand has a lot more of a relaxed scent. Hints of rose and lemon combine to give you a sweet uplifting fragrance that's relaxing and satisfying. To top it off, it has a cute purple rosebud inserted in the top I'm not really too sure what you supposed to do with it  which I just use in the bath and throw it away! Amandopondo turns your bathwater a slightly milky colour and produces loads of foamy, moisturising bubbles!

Honey, honey!

For me when it comes to buying bronzer, with my extremely fair skin, it's difficult to find something that doesn't appear orange or dirty when I wear it. A while back there was quite a rave about the Honey Bronze Bronzing Powder by The Body Shop by lots of fellow bloggers. Eventually, I had to cave in and buy it!

What I like about this product is that it has a matte finish. Nothing glitzy just a few specks of shimmer to make your cheekbones look better than ever before! Also, because it has a matte finish, you can use it as an all over bronzer on your face, not just to emphasise your cheekbones. 

Honey Bronze Bronzing powder also comes in 4 different shades which I really like. It comes in: Light Matte, Fair Matte, Medium Matte and Dark Matte which is so useful as there is one to suit everyone! Before I discovered this product I didn't tend to wear bronzer as it can appear orange or just look dirty. However, this bronzer is a god-send for pale girls like me. Priced at £13.00 a pot,  it is a little bit expensive but my goodness is it worth it!

PROM 2014

You may have wondered where I had gone for a while as I haven't posted for a few weeks, but I'm back in action now and ready than ever! Last night was my Year 11 Leaver's Prom and I thought you might want to know what I was wearing etc. (I know I love looking at others' prom pictures!)

I was so nervous about the night and was constantly worried that I was going to fall flat on my face in my 4 inch heels (bearing in mind this was the second time I'd actually worn heels in my life) or the wind could catch the chiffon in my dress and flaunt my underwear! Luckily, everything went to plan and I was just left with throbbing feet at the end, but there are no surprises there!

I ordered my dress from Dylan Queen as they offered custom fit dresses and a huge selection to choose from. I know it's not the greatest of ideas to order expensive dresses online without trying them on and I was a little bit skeptical to start with. However, after reading tonnes, and tonnes of reviews I decided to go for it! When it arrived it fitted like a glove and looked absolutely stunning! 

My shoes were from John Lewis, with my dress being such a hard colour to match anything with, I thought silver shoes would be the way forward! Despite the heels constantly sinking into the grass during photos meaning I had to balance myself on the balls of my feet which was actually quite painful! I also had a mirrored silver clutch bag from eBay which isn't shown in this photo, in fact I'm not sure where it got too! 

Finally, I got my hair done by the lovely people at P-Kai in Peterborough, it looked so good when it was finished and backcombed and the curls are still in my hair now! I then topped everything off with a sterling silver circle pendant necklace from Accessorize.

I hope you all had/have lovely proms if you have one this year!
