Lush Christmas Event

Heya Everyone!

Ahh don't you just love Christmas?.... Well I do! And it was made even better when I was invited to the lush Christmas bloggers event

This years theme for lush is Cruelty Free Christmas,the beautiful lady's at lush told us about some of the new things happening at lush in the coming new year and they also told us about there charity's that they are helping.

Lush helps out a lot of different charity's, the ones that can't get a lot of help because they don't have big advertisement, the ones that arnt really known, which I think is an amazing idea! Because there is so many things we don't know about going on, that a great company like Lush finds them and helps.

Now onto the Christmas products! Lush has made a HUGE range of Christmas goodies this year, everything to cater for every person you have to buy presents for! If you want to see the big list of products they have, Click Here

The cutest family on the block at Lush at the moment are The Frosty Family! 

Soooo adorable! There is Mr Frosty, Mrs Frosty and Baby Frosty an adorable happy family and a great addition to yours! 

On the night we got to learn how to make the cupcake face mask from scratch and also how to tie different things with head scarves, they can be used to wrap presents as cute baskets and used as just the cutest head scarves with flowers (I'm still working on the one!) I did get one wrap that they showed us pretty proud haha usually can't do these things!

The scarves are available at lush stores to buy for $5.50 each! Christmas and other patterns are available. 

Lush were soo generous in giving us a goodie bag, letting us try different things from their Christmas collection, in the bag we got: 

* The cute head scarf (with instructions on how to fold different things) 
* Santa Lip Scrub ( tastes like cola..Yum!!)
* Santa Baby lip tint
* Skkim Girls body lotion 
* Cupcake face mask
* Lord of Misrule 
* The Christmas Penguin 
* Golden Wonder Bath Bolistic
* Snow Fairy (shower gel)
* Rose Jam (shower gel)
* Ponche (shower gel)
* Snow Fairy Sparkle Massage Bar

My favorite product Lush has ever come out with is SNOW FAIRY EVERYTHING!!!
It's the most amazing smell ever, hehe I have back ups I have bought because I never want to run out!!

Thank you soo much to Babs for organizing this event, and thank you to all the ladies of Swanson street Lush for having me and informing me about all the different products, and causes your are fighting for :)

Beautiful Brunettes

Hey Everyone
I was having a conversation with some beautiful brunettes Jasmine Sweetaholic Beauty, Kat Kitch Snitch and Claire Ms This N That Blog the other day and it gave me the idea on a post of the most beautiful Bombshell brunettes. We hear about all the Beautiful Blondes, how they have more fun, but I thought I would talk about the Sexiness and Boldness of Brunettes. Being a brunette my self, i know brunettes have more fun! Don't get me wrong i love all my blonde, redhead, and bright colored hair friends and we have sooo much fun together, but this post is about my Brunette Sistas!

Audrey Hepburn
Over the years there have been some very famous Brunettes popping up in the movie/ music world, but one of the iconic films "Breakfast at Tiffinys" had Audrey Hepburn, a brunette a lot of us can relate to. I have always wanted to go to Tiffany's that she was at just to have breakfast, a lot of people would want to, who else wants to have breakfest at Tiffany's? Even just to go and see the jewlery would be fun!

Jennifer Lopez
In the singing world Jlo has been one of my favorites, with her beautiful long hair and gorgeous curves. She is just my idol till this day! She is a very strong, confadent, independent woman. I'd like to think that's the brunette in her hehe. The makeup looks on these two woman over the years are amazing, having the dark features lets them get away with almost any look. Brunetts have an advantage sometimes, by being able to pull of an angelic makeup look to the most evilst person and still look amazing! 

So id like to shout out to all my brunette sistas " We are awsome!" And we can rock any look, don't be scared to try something different with your makeup looks or clothes looks because with our features, chances are we will look great! 

If you need some inspiration from the famous brunettes then take a leaf out of there book, you already know it looks great or it would not have been photographed (apart from the worst dressed photos) but I don't think there is any worst dressed, just the wrong stylist hehe. 

At the end of the day, if your Brunette, Blonde, Red, Orange, Black, Silver, Purple, Blue or Green, you are all beautiful! And we are so lucky that we get to experiment with our hair colours. But it dosnt matter what colour your hair is, the person you are underneith that hair is who counts! 

So Make It Count!

Sally Hansen Spring Racing Collection Quick Review

Hey Everyone

On today's nail menu, there is a lovely range of Sally Hansen Spring Racing Collection!! Omgsh I love love this collection, the colours are so pretty for spring and they have come out with a great range.

Colours from Left to Right:
Rosy Outlook, Peach Of Cake, Sheer Bliss, Tickle Me Pink,Gray -t Escape,Good to Grape & Barracuda
Picture by Coty inc

I was fortunate to try 2 colours of the range, Tickle Me Pink and Gray-T Escape, two colours i have loved and can use for a very long time. The polish its self has lasted me a good 2 weeks (which using my hands everyday cleaning, and stocking takes a toll on my nails) but with this complete salon manicure it lasted that long and i was surprised!

My Nails in Tickle Me Pink
This nail colour reminded me a bit like having, beautiful Redy Pinky just picked from the farm cherrys on my nails, the shine of the polish is amazing, as you can see in the pictures and they stayed that shiny for the whole time. They didn't dull or peel, the polished just stayed like i had just had my manicure freshly done.

My Nails in Gray-T Escape 
I think out of the two colours my favorite would have to be Grey-T Escape, because you can wear it at any occasion and it matches everything in my wardrobe, it also makes your hands seem tanned (which is a bonus!)

If you would like to see more of this range or different ranges Sally Hansen has please Click Here 

Id like to thank Coty Inc for sending me these nail polishes review, I really like them  :)
