Hello my Loves!
Now like most of us I’m a huge candle addict, if I go into a shop that sells candles and I can’t help but have a wee sniff. My friends constantly make fun of me for being unable to leave Primark without coming out with a packet of tea lights, who can blame me, they’re a total bargain.
However as much as they mock me for it, whenever they give me gift’s for whatever reason you can guarantee that there is at least one candle in the mix, so really they’re only aiding the addiction.
Which leads me to receiving the lovely Cherry Bakewell from Bomb Cosmetics. Normally I can be a bit fussy with cherry scents as I often find they can be a tad synthetic and overly sweet for my taste so I was really surprised how much I enjoyed this scent. Cherry Bakewell’s were a huge part of my childhood, my birthday parties weren’t complete without them being part of the menu which is why my friend Becky chose it for me. The sweet scent of the cherry and marzipan really create an uplifting scent that left me feeling nostalgic.
I felt the scent really managed to fill the room well and I could still smell it in the air the next morning which is always a nice bonus.
I will definitely be checking out some of the other scents that bomb cosmetics has to offer.
What candles are you loving at the moment?
Hello my Loves
Lush seasonal collections have to be my favourite time of the year to pick up some bath goodies. They’re always fun and colourful and vibrant collections with plenty of amazing products I can’t wait to get my hands on and I was most excited for the Humpty Dumpty bath bomb. Now at £6.95 he is a pricey fellow but it should be used for 3 bath’s so I think it balances out (plus with the price of chocolate eggs these days I think its pretty reasonable) The egg “shell” should crack down the middle leaving you 2 halves and contain a mini fried egg inside that can be used for your third bath. I will admit that I found cracking the egg open a bit of a struggle and had to use a knife to get it to split which felt slightly cruel to Humpty.
Humpty has a really nice citrus scent – Brazilian Orange Oil and Bergamot Oil – which creates a lovely uplifting bath-time experience. The bath-bomb turns your water a beautiful vibrant blue and yellow that really creates the prettiest bath.
I loved this bath bomb I promise Humty Dumpty wont leave you hanging. 😉
Have you tried any of Lush’s Easter range?
Running. A dreadful, awful thing. A rewarding, amazing sport. This is what running is to me. There are good days, bad days, and any type of day in between. My worst day can turn into my best just by putting on my trainers and forgetting everything except what lies directly ahead of me.
It isn’t about the times, the number of miles, or the most expensive shoes. It’s just about me. About pushing myself, my mentality, my limits of what I can do–mentally and physically. At the end of the day, your biggest competition is yourself. Look in the mirror and that’s who is going to be your worst enemy.
Why do I love it? For as many reasons. I love that running makes me appreciate my surroundings, growing up I always hated being in the countryside, longing for the city. I love that when I go for a run I never fail to take a picture of part of my route, somehow it opens up my eyes and I see just how pretty the natural rural landscape is. Sure it means I have a 30 minute drive to the closest cinema but then I wouldn’t have the freedom to choose any direction when I leave the house for a peaceful run without the busy city traffic.
I love the clear-headed exhaustion that follows a hard run – body spent but mind miraculously clearer than the foggy-headed state I started in. I especially love the cake that follows an especially harder journey . I love that running as much as I do means I can eat whatever I want – but that I don’t, because I won’t run as well if I eat nothing but cake. Basically I love cake.
Do you enjoy running? If so why?
