intergalactic, golden egg lush products | courtneyleighblogs

My recent visit to Lush
 I feel like whenever I take a visit to my local Lush store I always have to come and share what I bought even if it's like one thing. This time I bought two things and I'm so super excited about them that I had to share them.

Intergalactic bath bomb and Golden Egg bath bomb melt.
 So the two things I purchased this time where of course more bath bombs. One I've already bought before and loved so much and a new one that I've seen all over Instagram / Facebook so much recently that I just HAD to try it. So the bath bomb I repurchased was the Intergalactic bomb. I bought this one not long ago and absolutely loved it so obviously I had to repurchase it. The second bath bomb that I purchased which I was SO excited about was the Golden Egg bomb. I have seen this everywhere just lately and it looked amazing so I needed it!

I think the Intergalactic bath bomb might be my favourite bath bomb from Lush that I've tried. I just love the way it leaves my bath looking and LOVE the smell of peppermint that floats around the bathroom once it's in the bath. Honestly I think I loved it so much purely for the glitter, however if you haven't tried this one I would totally recommend it!

So this is my show stopper, the one I've been most excited about trying and it's this gorgeous Golden Egg smothered in gold glitter flakes. There's so much glitter on this bath bomb that the second you touch it, everything on you and around you is covered in glitter, which I'm not going to complain about because I love glitter. However, I can see how that turns people away. I tried this bath bomb the night I got it because I couldn't wait and it's amazing! I think the lady in Lush said that the bomb contained cocoa butter which fits the easter thing amazingly but most importantly it left my skin feeling AMAZING. I'd shaved my legs in the bath because I feel like you can't really appreciate how soft your legs are unless they're freshly shaved. So when I got out, they felt amazing!! I'm pretty sure I sat there and just felt my legs for a good 10 minutes, I think I even got my boyfriend to feel them at one point because they felt so good. The only downside is the amount of glitter that gets stuck at the bottom of your bath but once again I'm not going to complain because I love it!


What are your favourite bath bombs or your favourite products from Lush? I'd love to know!

barry m nails ; spring edition design | courtneyleighblogs

  

Hiya lovelies, 

having freshly painted nails is something I appreciate so much, so when I actually sit down and make the effort to make them look pretty I feel like it needs to be shared. I'm no nail artist so my nails never look amazing but I do like to try and make them look pretty or at least some what cute, so I thought I'd show you how I've done my nails and what shades I used.


 

My nails have never ever been long and I don't think they ever will. They grow to a certain length, go flimsy and then break. However, they're doing well at the moment (I say well like they're really long), and I thought I'd paint them cute pastel colours as we're coming up to spring / easter. So for my thumb, 3rd finger and pinky I used the Barry M Gelly nail varnish in the shade Prickly Pear. I love these shade and is usually my go - to shade whenever I want something quick and cute. It's such a beautiful pastel-ish shade of purple and super cute for spring. On my 2nd finger I used the same Gelly nail varnish but in the shade Rose Hip. In the bottle this colour looks like a gorgeous very pale pink, almost the colour of a strawberry milkshake, however when applied it's pretty much white. I mean it's not blinding white, but it's definitely not the shade of pink in the bottle which is annoying but it's still cute nevertheless. Finally, for my 4th finger I used the Coconut Infusion nail polish from Barry M in the shade Laguna. I think this was my first ever Barry M nail polish I bought and I fell in love with it. I love the coconut infused polishes because they care for your nails as well as make them look cute, win win. 

As a top coat to make sure they don't chip I used the Barry M Plumpy Topcoat. This just makes the nails look extra shiny and look more like a gel than just a basic nail polish.

This was just a little post to share my nails with you because I take pride in when they look cute. Have any of you tried the Barry M polishes? What are your favourites, let me know!
