So! A couple of days ago I decided it was a real treat day. Armed and ready, I headed into Manchester City Centre and spent pretty much every penny I have! I purchased the following items, and although I haven't numbered the images I'm sure you'll be able to follow!:

Lush Fresh Handmade Cosmetics Popcorn Lip Scrub, £5.25 for 25g I had seen so many posts about this and so many people talking about it on their blogs, instagram, Facebooks... you name it! So I decided it was about time I got my hands on some. After some uuhming and aahing, I decided on the Popcorn flavour (it is also available in Bubblegum which is the more popular one and Mint Julips, a sort of mint chocolate flavour) and it is divine!

Miss Sporty Dr Balm in shade 01 and 03, £1.99 each or 3 for £5 @ Superdrug I sort of bought these on a whim, seeing the 3 for £5 deal in Superdrug I couldn't resist! They do perfect summery shades, for when lipstick is just too heavy! Softing lip balm with royal jelly with the right amount of colour tint.

Miss Sporty Sparkle Touch Nail Varnish in shade 3004, £1.99 or 3 for £5 I bought this alongside the two lip colours mentioned above. This is really pretty and looks great over another colour and on its own. Glitter nail varnish is something I've only recently gotten into but my collection is slowly growing!

Lush Fresh Handmade Cosmetics Mask of Magnaminty, £4.95 for 125g I will honestly hold my hands up and say that I do have the odd breakout in spots and sometimes, like right now, it gets worth than others, so when I saw and read about this I had to have it. It's a peppermint mask but also has gritty bits in it so also acts as a scrub. Leaves the skin feels SO refreshed!

Bumble & Bumble Gentle Shampoo, £18.50 for 250ml, Super Rich Conditioner, £20.00 for 250ml I searched high and low all over Manchester for a sample of B&B's Deeep Treatment as my hair is slightly frazzled at the minute and wanted to give it a try, but failed miserably. However, I did manage to get my hands on these two samples!

Lush Fresh Handmade Cosmetics Honeybee Bath Ballistic, £3.20 each As you have probably noticed, I am a complete Lush nut. I perhaps need to start expanding my horizons a little bit, but the reasonably priced products (for the most part) keep me coming back. I bought myself my favourite bath bomb as an end of exam treat. Cannot wait to use it later on!

I also picked up some free reads as you can see, a benefit brochure and Manchester's Loud and Quiet paper (ins and outs of up and coming music, fashion, all of that).

Full reviews of all products will be coming up, keep your eyes peeled! Is there a particular one you'd like reviewed first or sooner than the others? Let me know!


  1. I think everyone in the whole world has a lush lip scrub, except me :(! I feel so left out. Really going to have to just give in and buy one! I could do with that face mask too by the sounds of it! The foundation I'm using at the moment is making my skin so congested :( erghh
    & I love anything minty so bonus there :p xx

  2. Try the Mint Julips scrub then if you're serious about getting one! I did try it and it was gorgeous, just preferred the popcorn one :) it's that minty it even acts as a bit of a breath freshener ahah! I did feel they were a bit pricey but if it does the right job then who's complaining? You only need the tiniest bit too, I've used mine once/twice a day since I bought it and have barely made a dint.
    Have you considered changing foundation?! I think that's what mine might be too, whether they've changed the formula or something I don't know but it just isn't feeling all that great on my skin right now :( xx
