Hello beauties,

Hope you all had a fab weekend! I had a lovely time seeing my family with Chloe, before returning to Uni Sunday afternoon!

As I have such lovely friends, they purchased me some Lush goodies as a belated birthday present as well as a couple of bits I picked up myself! So here we go - I will link the products for you lovely ladies!

  • Rub Rub Rub Shower Scrub - £7.95 - This was one of the products I purchased for myself as I had heard a lot of good things about it. The scrub contains very small sea salt crystals and smells of lemons. The woman in the store demoed this on me and it left my skin feeling so so soft! She also said that she uses it in her hair to give texture and volume which I thought was interesting, but she had amazing hair so I'm looking forward to trying it out for myself!
  • Brazened Honey Face Mask - £5.95 - Firstly this face mask smells wonderful if you are a honey lover like myself! This face mask is apparently perfect for stress relief and tired skin, which I will most definitely be needing over the next couple of weeks during exam time! 
  • Dream Cream - £10.95 - Now I did not actually purchase this product, the lovely sales assistant in the Canterbury store gave me two sample pots of this to try out. As this is Lush's number one product I have been meaning to try it for the longest time, it is meant to be fantastic for eczema sufferers and those with sensitive skin. Plus it smells great (oats, cocoa butter and rose oil!) 
  • FUN Green - £5.00 - Fun is one of Lush's latest products, and was given to me as a gift! The green one has a citrusy smell that reminds me of starburst!! Even though I haven't used it for all of it's uses yet (shower gel, bubble bath, shampoo, hand wash) me and my flatmates have had a fab time using it as playdoh! 
  • Each Peach Massage Bar - £5.50 - An old favourite that I reviewed maybe just over a year ago! I love to used this in the summer as it smells very fruity, and was told by a member of staff that it is great for keeping mosquito's away!! 
  • Think Pink Bath Bomb - £2.50 - I'm sure loads of you have already tried this bath bomb, it's such a girly scent! I cannot wait to use this when I return home for summer and actually have a bath in the house haha! I love the vanilla scent and the hearts that come out when put in the water!
  • Phoenix Rising Bath Bomb - £3.20 - First things first, I think this bath bomb looks gorgeous. It's actually one of the few that I haven't tried, so was pleasantly surprised when I received it! This has a cinnamon scent, which I personally love and contains cocoa butter.
  • Ro's Argan Body Conditioner - £15.50 - I actually got this as part of a set so I have a slightly smaller tub, but oh my this may be one of my favourite Lush scents ever - it contains almond, rose, lemon and brazil nut oil, vanilla, shea butter, argan oil and cocoa butter. You are supposed to used this product in the same way you use conditioner in your hair, but on your body, it leaves the skin feeling so soft and wonderful!
  • Buffy Body Butter - £5.95 - I have been meaning to try a solid body butter for quite some time, and buffy seemed like a good choice! It contains lots of lovely ingredients and I was told that it is good for toning you skin as well!

I hope you enjoyed this post! Let me know what your favourite Lush products are and if there are any I should try out!

Stay Beautiful,

Girly Candle Haul - Lily Flame

Hello Sweeties,

As I'm sure a lot of you are, I am a huge fan of candles! Now much to my dismay Slatkin and Co. candles are not available here in the UK, but one brand that I am absolutely obsessed with is Lily Flame, which I'm sure many of you have heard of, especially since the names of the scents are so cute!

Living in student accommodation, it is a big no no to burn candles in our rooms - a hair dryer even set off the fire alarms once - much to the security guards annoyance!!! So, in celebration of the end of the academic year, and a new house next term, I asked for some Lily Flame candles for my birthday! They are all £8.50 each, and are available online or in John Lewis / Waitrose I believe!

This is my favourite scent of the three, I actually got this one as one of my Mum's Mothers Days gifts a few months back and decided I needed one for myself! It has a very feminine and powdery smell, that is also very relaxing. 

Once again an extremely girly scent with an even girlier name to match! This candle is stronger than fairy dust, but still has a powdery smell to it and I think also some floral notes in there. I cannot wait for my bedroom to smell like this!

Finally is the lovely Blush! The tin says - The first kiss - of the night! It's definitely a stronger scent, that is once again incredibly feminine, with a more fruity and perfume like smell than the others. I'm in love!

I hope you enjoyed this post! Let me know if there are any candles you think I should try!

Stay Beautiful, 

Hannah xx

Guess Who's Back?! - Catch Up Time

Hello lovely bloggers!

So I think I owe you all an explanation as I have most definitely been MIA for the past 10 months. As some of you may know if you follow me on twitter you will know that A LOT had changed in my life since the last time we spoke. The biggest change being that I have moved from Essex to the lovely city of Canterbury to go to university!

I currently live with seven girls who are all wonderful, five of whom I am going to live with for the next two years! I thought I'd do some updates in picture form!

(Left to Right)
1. Some of my flatmates - with mustaches and attractive faces. 2. Myself and my twin Chloe on Christmas day 2012! 3.Last Friday my Mum, her friend and I went to see BBC 3 show Sweat the Small Stuff be filmed in London, we met the very friendly comedian Sean Walsh! 4. This Easter my Mum and I went to Portugal, this was the gorgeous beach. 5. My bedroom door at uni, we all have Disney princesses on our doors :) 6. About two weeks after we began uni we had our first flat inspection. We failed. Moral of the story - do not have a party the night before!! 7. Planet Hollywood with my lovely mum, sister and family friends. 8. The drawing round of our pub quiz, our team chose to draw Nicki Minaj and we won no points! Robbed? I think so. 9. Night out with my lovely friends!

(Left to Right)
1 + 4. Being the mature 19 year old I am, I went to the zoo with my friend Shannon instead of revising, I met a Zebra and a Cheetah! 2. Last week my flatmates and I played Articulate, needless to say my team lost! 3. Wearing a wristband for a week can only result in ridiculous tan burn lines. 5. Chloe thought it would be funny to request Domino's to draw a cat on our box. Much to our amusement they did. 6. Our journey home from uni took a detour through Brentwood when there was an accident on the M25. This resulted in meeting Harry from TOWIE in his shop!! 7. My lovely flatmate Amy and I sitting front row at Take Me Out last December. 8. The chalkboard in our kitchen with Charlotte's wonderful sea monkeys drawing "They are not toys or pets, they're family". 9. Winter Wonderland with some of my besties!

So I hope you have enjoyed this little update! I hope to be posting more regularly from now on. I'll be doing a mixture of posts from beauty, to life updates, and even advice posts if you're interested!

If you are reading this thank you for sticking with me through my rather long absence! Speak to you all soon!

Stay Beautiful,

Hannah xx
