Bathtime is Lush.

Bathtime was annoying as a kid unless i could get those mermaid shaped foam cremes or bring my barbie in with me but now bathtime is cherished! i love relaxing in a warm tub and so over Christmas
I was lucky enough to be gifted lots of Lush products and also purchased a few of my own so thought i would share these delightful goodies with you! (all marked * are xmas edition only)

Soft Coeur
Clever play on words given that this little massage bar has a chocolate core and  'coeur' is french for heart. This smells like chocoloate made with shea and cocoa butter, honey and cocoa powder plus other essential oils it will lock in the moisture during a bath or shower.

Tender is the Night
this melts so quick, made with murumuru butter (which us naturals love for hair) and shea butter it has a soft relaxing scent thanks to the ylang ylang and jasmine oil. Another massage bar to soften the skin.

Candy Mountain *
HOLLA ALL MY SWEET TOOTHS this smells like a candy store dream, very sweet. Unfortunately the top of mine crumbled off but this bath bomb will leave you sugary and everyone will want to lick you.

A bubble bar to create a cascade of gold foam, super glittery and a good pick me up on dreary days. Has a mild citrus scent.

The Comforter
Not to be confused with the comforter? another lush product this is a super fruity sweet bubble bar. Smells like raspberry and citrus fruits and will create big blackcurrant bubbles, you can split this bar for more than one use.

Golden Wonder *
OMG i cannot praise this one enough, i had two in my gift box and it creates a magical experience so it no wonder its shaped like a present. A citrus scent. There will be little stars in your bathtub- be aware to wash tub corners after use though the glitter tends to stick.

Lord of Misrule *
Looks plain but it has popping candy for an exciting bath experience. A bath bomb with a very soapy smell but not in an off putting way a more relaxing way.

Father Christmas *
I reallllyy should have used this one by now but i haven't haha. Its a bath bomb with not only a friendly face but a marshmallowy edible chalk stick type scent.

Christmas Eve*
A nice and simple bubble bar with calming ylang ylang and irish moss powder.
Cinders *
Apologies for my shoddy photography skills as i didnt capture the ball of popping candy on the other side! i thought it was a plain little bath bomb, but the candy has a striking gingery citrus smell that reminds me of an expensive candle. Its made with almond oil, sea salt  and cinnamon
(thats the peppery striking smell i got) I'm yet to use this either but i'm sure it'll be a treat!

Lush is a great place if you love spoiling yourself with bathtime treats. They also do skin, hair and other body products like toothpaste and perfume. What's great is their products are fresh, handmade, ethically sourced and they don't ever accept products tested on animals (alot of veggie and vegan products too) so you get all the natural goodness and will feel good about it too.

Who wants a bath now? Hope you enjoyed this post x

Like jumping from one stone to another we have made it to a new year. Classically so, we all try and make resolutions and we must remember to try and make changes to our lives but not try and change ourselves completely because we are who we are and we all contribute- any time you try and change yourself it never works. Here's to bettering what we already know and have, to improve our mind, body and soul. Resolution means a firm decision to do or not do something, and the quality of being determined or resolute. I have made my decisions:

1. Continue To Love and Appreciate Myself. i have grown drastically in confidence since cutting my hair off, i suddenly see my beauty and want to tackle life with the belief i actually can. I still have a little ways to go though trusting in my ability, thinking i'm pretty and knowing i'm good enough. This in no way means i think I'm above anyone it's simply knowing MY worth and value on this planet (the hippy is back) as there will be only one of me so lets make my time fantastic.

2. Do not Let negative thoughts In/Think everyone thinks badly of you. I have a TERRIBLE habit of thinking people don't like me for whatever weird reason and generally thinking badly about myself, it has lessened as my confidence improves but i really need to stop going over and over bad things in my mind (especially before bed, am i right?) first of all i'm going with the age old phrase 'what people think of me is none of my business' its very true, if they aren't worried about you, why are you worried about them- this is not to confuse that 'cut people out of my life' thing people do i'm not into that i believe i can get on with everyone, some closer than others. Some i don't talk to, but if i don't, i'm not talking about them either. Positive thoughts and less self doubt will always put a smile on your face.

3. Save Money. I always have enough to pay for whatever it is that needs paying for i seldom miss out on big events however i do sometimes miss out on the little ones. I'm 23 this year and i really need to have a couple different savings accounts; one for rainy day problems (like my washing machine that broke down) one that allows me to go out to dinner/pub/club with friends because i love sitting down to coffee with my loved ones and having a chat; i cherish quality time but cant always do it and one for the future future (house anyone?)

3 Eat Better. This is like an every month thing let alone every year! seriously though its important to take care of yourself and i'll also be doing the 30 day yoga challenge at some point this year. Socrates said it right:“No man has the right to be an amateur in the matter of physical training. It is a shame for a man to grow old without seeing the beauty and strength of which his body is capable.” i want to look back at all the amazing things i did.

4 Read More. fiction/non fiction. the odd encyclopedia and hopefully this Christmas i'll win all the quiz games.

5 Make Steps Towards My Life and What I Actually Want To Do With It/Be More Organised. This really should be number 1. I haven't fully pushed myself into the career i truly enjoy (acting and play writing) so i need to focus on jobs in my field and taking more risks, I had many opportunities last year that i didn't go for because i was scared. That is no longer good enough. I would like to get to 30 and feel i can openly call myself an actor and writer. I will be more organised in taking directed steps forward, be determined and take risks, as although you never know whats written out for you, you can always change the text.

I look forward to using my Daily Greatness Journal as a guide to creativity and positivity.

Happy New Year!
