No longer a LUSH virgin

So i finally went into Lush originally looking for Snow Fairy but finding out it's only available from fall for christmas.
I decided to purchase a few things anyway.
Firstly i asked for anything that smelt close to snow fairy.
I was told that a few soap bars has similar sweet scents but i went with The Godmother.

It's basically the soap form of snow fairy and smells really girly and sweet, it's really pretty and has iridescent glitter inbedded in the plummy coloured bar. I was happy with it until i rinsed, it has that horrible rubbery feeling that non moisturising soaps tend to have which is why i prefer shower gels.
I also purchased a shower jelly, mainly for the fact that it was something quite different and exciting.

I chose the mildest one which was the Joy of Jelly, it feels really calming and relaxing so i love using it before bedtime. It actually builds up a good lather which was surprising, but i would purchase it again.

I wanted some bath bombs so i picked up Ickle baby bot for my daughter as she loves baths like crazy, she was initially scared of the blue fizzing robot in her beloved bath but as she got used to it she seemed to like it and the lovely turquoise the water turned to. It claims to help sleep aswell which is great news for parents! The other bath bomb was Tisty Tosty which is heart shaped with 7 rose buds inside,  but i have not had a chance to use this yet.

The Lush ladies were really helpful and friendly despite me needing products that didn't contain nuts but i am really happy with most of the products i bought and can't wait to go again.

New Fragrances

I recently purchased Vivienne Westwood's Naughty Alice.

It's exactly as i imagined it to be, girly, sexy and sophisticated. Notes include black rose, violet, ylang-ylang and musk.

The bottle is adorned with a charm bracelet for you to remove and keep.

I also bought a Marc Jacobs Daisy solid perfume ring on my little trip to Harrods.
It's a very large ring and features a twist top to access the perfume, there are gorgeous white daisies scattered over the shiny black dome lid.

This playful, floral and fruity fragrance has top notes of wild strawberries complemented with a base note of white woods accord, which gives this sweet scent a vintage twist.
I will definitely be purchasing the bottle.
