July Wishlist

Hi lovelies, I hope you've all had a fantastic day! I spent mine having a very long lie in after not being able to sleep until 7am! It was incredibly annoying! For the rest of the day, I've just been watching TV and planning posts for next month, plus I received some lovely things in the post that I will blogging all about very soon. Anyhow, it's time for another monthly wishlist. Enjoy!

July Wishlist
 1. Sweetheart 2-in-1 Dress I just love the pretty floral design on this dress! As someone who feels most happy in black clothes, it can be difficult to find something that has summery vibes so as soon as I spotted this dress, I wanted it. I really like the sweetheart neckline of the dress too and I think it would be perfect to wear both during the day and for nights out. 

2. Bronze Coloured Fox Ornament As most of my regular readers will know by now, I absolutely love foxes! As soon as I see anything fox related (or bunny related, or alpaca related, or lizard related.. the list is endless! I just seriously love animals), I need it. DuneIm has some really lovely home deco, and this fox is just one of the many items I want. Just look how cute it is, with it's little sleepy face! Who else adores foxes?

3. Dose of Color Liquid Lipstick in 'Kiss of Fire' This collection of gorgeous matte liquid lipsticks have recently been taking the blogging world by storm and it's no surprise with the stunning shades available. I have been lusting over them since I saw this post by the lovely Beth over at Mermaid In Disguise. I instantly fell in love with the frosted glass packaging and the vibrant colours, and although 'Kiss of Fire' wasn't original my favourite shade, it's really grown on me the more I've seen of it all over instagram. 

4. Dose of Color in 'Chocolate Wasted' Another shade of this wonderful collection that I adore. I've been looking for the perfect true brown lipstick to experiment with for ages now, and this colour looks fabulous! There's literally so many pretty lipsticks by Dose of Color that I would love to get my hands on! 

5. Portico Zodiac A6 Notebook It's so hard to narrow it down to one notebook per wishlist because I honestly want about ten new notebooks each month! This notebook appealed to me because of the gorgeous papercut art on the cover. I have always loved papercut art, it is so pretty and intricate, and I admire the artists so much. I would love to have a go myself but I'm so bad with anything that requires tiny, intricate precision :) Nevermind, I can just buy lovely notebooks like this instead! There are twelve of these notebooks available, one with each sign of the zodiac on the cover. Being born at the start of October, I am a Libra and I've always been jealous of the awesome designs of all of the other Zodiac signs. This is the loveliest Libra design I've ever seen so of course, I need it in my life. 

6. Whimsical Woodland Makeup Bag After managing to ruin the inside of my other make-up when I got liquid eyeliner all over it, I am now in need of a new one. This one is perfect for me as it's covered in woodland animals. Forests and Woods are my favourite places and I love anything with a woodlands design. Plus, I love how colourful this make-up bag is and that the zip is my favourite shade of blue.

7. Cinnamon Donut Bath Bomb I have been following the instagram of Oh Deer Sugar for a while now and have been fascinated by how gorgeous their bathbombs look! They remind me so much of Lush and I would love to try them out for myself! I love the cake and donut designs they make and how bright they are. This Cinnamon bathbomb is my favourite because the colours it makes in the bath remind me of Intergalactic, my favourite Lush bathbomb. If you love bathbombs and haven't heard of Oh Deer Sugar, go check them out :) 

8. Heart Wooden Shelf Unit I've been searching for a heart-shaped shelf ever since I saw someone displaying their tsum tsum collection in one as it looked so awesome! My collection of now 63 tsum tsums are currently sitting on top of a some plastic drawers that I brought home from university and I constantly keep knocking them off when I walk past, thus scattering tsum tsums all over the floor. It's getting more annoying the more tsum tsums I get, and I'm so addicted to the adorable little plushies that I just can't stop adding to my collection. My mum went shopping with my sister the other day and when they popped into The Range, they found these lovely wooden shelves in an off-white colour, however I couldn't find those ones on the website and if I can't get the off-white ones, I will just get these and paint them. If anyone knows where I can find some white heart shelves, please let me know in the comments. 

Thankyou for reading!

Lush The Comforter Bubble Bar | Review

Happy Monday everyone! Today, I thought I'd share with you all a little review about a Lush Cosmetics product I tried recently. I'd heard so many good things about The Comforter bubble bar, and I'd seen so many pretty photographs of it on instagram that I couldn't resist finally trying it out for myself. Seriously, this bubble bar is so photogenic and smells great! I hope you all enjoy reading. 

Lush The Comforter Bubble Bar Review

How pretty does this bubble bar look!? When I first saw it, it reminded me of something from Outer Space, of the Milky Way, of a bright pink nebula. When I looked at it again when I got home, it made me think of strawberry milkshake too! The bubble bar was so big, you get such a huge chunk for only £4.95. It's definitely great value for money. I decided to chop it up into quarters, so I could test what the bath would look like when using just one quarter as I know lots of people do this to make the most of their bubble bars. 

Lush The Comforter Bubble Bar Review

This bubble bar smelt so amazing! I'm a big fan of sweet scents so The Comforter has now been added to my list of top 10 Lush products. The ingredients include a mix of cassis fruit (black currants), bergamot oil and cypress tree oil. I love citrus scents so it's no wonder that I couldn't stop smelling this bubble bar. I really like the slogan on the Lush website for this product, 'Berry yourself under a fruity blanket'. It just perfectly describes how refreshing and lovely your bath with The Comforter will be. Lush bubble bars are fantastic! They create a bubble bath whilst also making the water change colour. The pink shade that The Comforter made my bath did not disappoint, it felt like I was getting into a bath fit for a fairy princess or something :)  I decided to use both a quarter of the bubble bar and also a half so I could get the best review of the product, to compare any differences there may have been when larger chunks of the bar were used.

Lush The Comforter Bubble Bar Review

I found The Comforter very easy to crumble up under the running tap as opposed to some of the other Lush bubble bars I've used. I preferred using a full half of the bubble bar VS a quarter as there were more bubbles that way, although I found that the pink colour of the water was just as bold no matter which size chunk I crumbled into the water. One thing that I've found about using all Lush bubble bars is that lots of pieces of the bar settle on the bottom of the bath and don't really dissolve, but it's not really a big problem as I just scoop these pieces up and crumble them until they disappear into the water. The pink colouration remained in the water throughout the entire duration of my bath, which I loved but the bubbles didn't. The smell of the water as soon as I got into the bath was so awesome, but this doesn't last too long either. 

Overall, I really enjoyed this bubble bar and I will definitely be buying it again. I hope you all enjoyed reading this review and if you have any other questions about what The Comforter was like, let me know in the comments.

Thankyou for reading!
