As promised, here is the second part of my Lush haul from Liverpool Street station. If you haven’t had the chance to read part one yet, go take a look at it here. For everyone else, here is the bath and body edition!
So put yourself in my position, you’ve been working all day, it’s hot, and you’ve already had to endure one overcrowded tube journey, you’re on the final stretch home only to find out your train has been delayed… Great! Then you look up and right above your train platform is a Lush store calling out for you – And you can bet your fizz banger bath ballistic I answered. So here is another haul, of things that I probably don’t need, but in my head are fully justified!
A little late to the party, as usual, but I couldn’t put this purchase off any longer. I finally bit the bullet and purchased some signature pieces from the Charlotte Tilbury Red Carpet Ready Set. I have been meaning to get some bits for a while now, but they are extremely hard to get hold of, selling only with a select few stockists – but hey ho, who ever complained about a little exclusivity. So this will be a little bit of a haul, and a little bit of a first impressions because I haven’t had time to give a full review.
I feel like I have managed to trick the world in to thinking that I am naturally quite a tan person, but in reality, only a small number of people know the truth – my skin is literally the colour of fresh snow. Now I am all about people embracing what they are born with, but for me, I don’t carry pale well, I don’t catch the sun, and I need a quick fix that I can use daily… Enter fake tan. Ah fake tan, we’ve had a love hate relationship for many years now, but I think I have finally cracked the perfect 3 step routine, for a flawless tan every time. So if you’re an avid tanner like me, this one is for you!
When I was around 13, I took the plunge and signed up to a Boots advantage card, I took such pride in having a card that had my name on it, even though it just never got used. My mum and Sister both had them and swore by them, but I never saw the appeal (maybe because I was 13 and had no money!) But for the past few years I have been going along to the Christmas points evenings at Boots in Brookfield, and couldn’t believe the amazing offer, basically every time you spent £60, you got £12 worth of points back. So I knew I would be going back this year to top up my make up, and buy some presents for others.
Now, I don’t know the first thing about make up, I slap some foundation on at roughly 6am every weekday and pray it lasts me the dreaded commute into work enough that I look half presentable. But I do however get caught up in beauty trends, and it is something I am genuinely interested in, but it wasn’t until a recent trip to Westfield in Stratford that I discovered three things:
1. I wear the wrong colour foundation (I’m sure this is a pretty common problem)
2. I actually have combination skin rather than oily
3. You get what you pay for
