Lush | My Favourites

Lush is one of my all time favourite brands you can get on the high street, cheap prices for brilliant organic products, and products for everything you could want! Before I start, I should let you know that I have oily/combination spot prone skin, so a lot of the facial products are aimed to control this.

Popcorn Lip Scrub
Okay so you could probably make this yourself, but for £5.50, I would rather just go for this popcorn scented delight for my lips. It helps buff away any dead or flaky skin on your lips, leaving a perfect base for a balm and then colour.

Enzymion Moisturiser
My everyday moisturiser, helps keep my oily skin at bay without drying out my dryish patches. It does have a smell, but it doesn't irritate my skin - however if you think this might be a problem for you, might be best to ask for a sample first!

Cupcake Facemask
Cupcake is a great face mask for unclogging pores and keeping your skin clear. It smells amazing, a mixture of chocolate and peppermint, which makes in a top choice to smear all over my face. It absorbs excess oil, and claims to keep breakouts at a minimum. I got about 3/4 uses of this mask, so for just under £6, I thought it was a bargain for the results.

Ayesha Facemask
Another great face mask, clay based this time, which helps leave skin radiant and refreshed by deep cleaning all your pores, leaving everything fresh and clean. Again at only £5.95 you can't go wrong, and you get a good 3 to 4 uses of this mask depending on how generously you apply it.

Big Sea Salt Shampoo
When I felt this product, I've got to say I was surprised at how big the segments of sea salt were and I thought it would make my hair dry and broken. However mixed with water, it in fact makes for the softest texture I've felt in an organic shampoo! It leaves my hair feeling nourished, with amazing volume, not to mention the incredible fresh smell! A new discovery, but already a favourite.

Tea Tree Toner Water
This product leaves my skin feeling clean, and tea tree has always been one of my favourite scents, and its antibacterial properties help keep spots at bay, which is big must for me! I use it whenever I feel like my skin needs refreshing, and my skin quite literally drinks this product up!

Grease Lightning Spot Treatment
This is a miracle product, the best spot treatment I've ever used, and one that actually works! The concept is, you put it on an active breakout, and it works to calm the spot, reducing the swelling and softening any redness.  It works slowly but effectively, and if you're willing to wait, it will not only reduce the spot itself, but any scarring as well.

So these are my favourite products from Lush! However I most definitely not done trying the whole shop. What are your favourites?

Next on my list: Skin Drink, R and B, Brazened Honey & Sea Spray.

On Wednesdays We Wear Pink | OOTD

Coat: Topshop | Dress: eBay | Heels: New Look
Just so you know, my foot hasn't made a miraculous recovery (waaa). These photos were taken prior to my little accident, but at least luckily I still have some blog posts to put up!

I fell in love with the ASOS smock dress in this print, but it sold out so quickly I didn't have a chance to order it! Then I found this gorgeous dress whilst searching through eBay, and although the shape isn't as lovely as the ASOS one, it was a good £20 cheaper and the print is very similar, if not the same! It goes really nicely with my Topshop coat, that I am using every excuse to wear at the moment, hence it's second feature on the blog already! All in all, this is a very simple & comfortable outfit, that I loved wearing.

I have one outfit post left to put up that I took before breaking my foot, so definitely expect more beauty posts over the next couple of weeks!

The Urban Decay Naked Three Palette | Review

The Naked 3 Palette has been on my wish list since it came out, and so when I unwrapped it on my birthday, its safe to say my mum instantly received the honour of the 'best present' award. Although it has received a few mixed views, I love it, and have been wearing it non stop since I got it.  If you're considering getting it, it is a lot of money to part with, but for the quality of the shadows, you're getting good quality for money. 

Strange - A beautiful matte peachy shade, perfect for an under the brow or inner-corner highlight. 
Dust - Certainly lives up to its name, the only shade that worries me slightly, as fall down is almost unavoidable! However it's a gorgeous light pink shimmery shade, beautifully nude and perfect for spring.
Burnout - A perfect pastel pink, matte shade that would be lovely for a very simple nude crease colour.
Limit - Another matte pink shade, lovely for an every day, natural look. A perfect shade to warm up your crease for a simple, everyday look. 
Buzz - A slightly darker pink, with a gorgeous shimmer running through it. This shade is definitely up my street, I love shimmer and I love nudes. Perfect combo. 
Trick - A gorgeous pinky-copper shade, perfect for a night out or a dressy makeup look. A hint of bronze shimmer running through it, making it a gorgeous shade for green eyed gals.
Nooner - A matte browny-pink shade, which I know I'll be getting a lot of use out of! One sweep of the beauty, and you've got yourself a fuss-free defined eye look. 
Liar - The first metallic shade, with a hint of both mauve and browns. I would definitely sport this shade on a night out.
Factory - A very similar shade to Liar, however slightly darker with a pinky undertone.
Mugshot - A mixture of Liar & Factory, a taupe/silver metallic shade. 
Darkside - A very deep dark purple, highly pigmented, and perfect for a smoky eye. Very matte, and a brilliant crease colour. 
Blackheart - My favourite from this palette. A matte black colour, perfect for a smoky eye. It has a gorgeous 'rosy red micro-sparkle' running through it, which makes this colour completely unique to my eye-shadow collection. 

All in all, Naked 3 is definitely my favourite palette I own, with colours to suit every day to nights out! Look out for a post coming soon of the looks I've created using this palette! Have you jumped on this pink, shimmery bandwagon yet?

The Long Bob | Short Hair Inspiration

All images saved from my Pinterest - link.
I am writing this cuddled up on the sofa after having a very traumatic day. I am now bed bound, with crutches as my only mode of transportation and a broken foot. Ow.  To cheer myself up, I though I would share my inspiration for cutting my hair short - or at least shorter!

My hair feels so much healthier after cutting off all the nasty dry split ends, and it's so much nicer to wash and dry! I'm still experimenting with how to style it differently, but so far, I am absolutely loving my new 'above the shoulder' length.

You can follow my Hair & Beauty board on Pinterest, and see loads of different styles I like, whether it would be for long or short hair! -see link.

I'm going to need lots of good blog posts to read to take my mind off the pain, so if you're a blog writer, please leave your links below!

Every Night We'll Watch The Stars | OOTD

Yellow Checked Coat: Zara | Cream Jumper: H&M | Jeans: New Look | Shoes: New Look
This post features two major sale bargains. The bigger of the two being this gorgeous checked coat from Zara. I ummed and ahh'd about whether to buy this coat, and then of course it sold out and I decided I needed it. Typical. However I was doing some serious Zara shopping with Toby's mum Jo when I went to Lisbon in July, and found it, in my size, for €40 (roughly £33!) Amazing. However, because I bought it late summer, it soon became far too cold to wear back in the UK, so I am eagerly awaiting Spring to whack out this beauty.

Second bargain are these beautiful cream heels from New Look. Super comfy, with a nice thick heel, making me look taller, but not costing me any comfort. Win. New Look is so good for good quality, well priced fashion, definitely a favourite of mine.

Are you looking forward to spring?!

Can I Get Your Lips To Speak My Name? | OOTD

Coat: Topshop | T-Shirt: New Look | High-Waisted Black Jeans: Primark | Brown Brogues: New Look (sold out, but similar here)
First of all, big apologies for the lack of posts - I can't believe how long it's been since I sat down and wrote a post! It's been a hectic couple of weeks, and what with the weather & everything, finding a good day to go out and shoot some outfits has been impossible! And yes, everyone with eyes will see half of my hair is gone! I decided to bite the bullet and go for it, long bob it is. (post to follow soon!)
Anyway, onto the outfit....

I bought this coat in the Topshop sale for £45. Yes, £45! I was so excited to find ways to style it, so keep your eyes pealed for many more outfits featuring this pink beauty. It is also fair to say stripes are one of my current obsessions. I keep buying stripes, forgetting I have millions of stripy tops/dresses/jumpers already in my wardrobe! Forgetting that, I love the way it looks with my pink coat and I feel very Paris-chic in it.

How would you style this coat?

Lots of Love,

Cosy Jumper Day | OOTD

Jumper: Apricot | Jeans: Primark | Boots: New Look | Necklace: H&M
Toby and I braved the January sales the other day, and what better to wear than a cosy knit and comfy boots?!
My parents bought me this beautiful jumper from Apricot, I love the wintery print, but not only this, it is the nicest feeling material, making it super warm & cosy. Yes, I'm wearing those Primark jeans again. Considering they cost me £11, they're high waisted and very comfortable, I will continue to wear them over and over! In fact I'm considering giving them a blog post all to themselves...
And finally, is it just me who is in love with these boots? I picked them up in a cheeky New Look sale before Christmas, and they haven't been off my feet. I love the cowboy-esque vibes they give, but they really do go with so much!

Love, Rozzi xxx
