A Day at the Shops….


Hello Lovelies 🙂

What better way to celebrate pay day than with a bit of a shopping spree! Plus it’s June/EOFY sale time so lots of bargains are about.  Too be honest, my budget is not huge so I did have to restrain myself a little (ok a lot).

My first stop was Lush because I had run out of cleanser and moisturizer. I repurchased Angels on Bare Skin which is my all time favourite cleanser and you can hear me rave all about it here. I also bought Charity Pot Hand and Body Lotion and The Sakura Bath Bomb.


The great thing about the Charity Pot is that 100% (minus 10% GST) of the money goes to the charity on the lid. It smells so nice. Like Chocolate or Turkish Delight. The Charity on my lid is Pedalling for Papua.

The Sakura Bath Bomb is a new one for me, though the girl in the store told me it was a re-release (?) of an older bath bomb. I had never seen it in store before but I am relatively new to Lush. It smells like the Rub Rub Rub Shower Scrub and is inspired by the Japanese Cherry Blossoms that bloom once a year. It is speckled with pink and blue to represent the soft cherry blossoms blooming against the sky. Fragrance is Jasmine, mimosa and orange blossom. It is quite strong smelling, but relaxing and I can’t wait to try it out.

After chatting to the lovely girl who served me (she really was sweet), I walked out with a few samples as well.  Which were the Turkish Delight Shower Smoothie and Enzymion face mosituriser. I loved Lush’s Vanishing Cream, but I want to try out some of the others before I decide.


I seem to be going through face wipes and cotton pads like crazy at the moment! I need to go to Costco and stock up again I think! I’ve been wanting to try the Burt’s Bees Facial Cleansing Towelettes – Sensitive  for ages. We shall see how we go. I am also super tired of Cotton Make up pads that fall apart as I pull them out of the packet, so I’m going back to the Johnson’s Pure Cotton ones.


There are very few things better than a new book!  We Are All Completely Beside Ourselves by Karen Joy Fowler. After hearing the review of this on ABC’s The Book Club, I thought it sounded really interesting.

And of course I need some relaxing reads for the weekend….


If you haven’t checked out Renegade Collective I highly recommend you do. It’s not beauty related, but it is a really smart, inspiring read with great interviews as well. It is also an Australian publication, but they are available in heaps of other countries as well.

I needed some clothes for work and found these dress on sale.


I got this top on sale at Sportsgirl. I was a bit unsure at first, but it has really grown on me.



Anyway that’s it from me! I’m off to try out my new bath bomb, have a glass of wine and read my book. Hope you are having an amazing weekend  as well!
