Lush Solid Shampoo Bar

   Since LUSH is pretty far away from where I live, I tend to not visit often. But when I do i end up wanting to buy the whole store. One of the new products I purchased was their solid shampoo bars. All the employees were raving about it so I thought, why not give it a go? Let me just tell you that it did not disappoint. It created a lot of shine and volume. From the heavenly scent to the incredible feeling of cleanliness after my hair dried I was impressed every step of the way :)    

 Any recommendations for my next visit to Lush?

Falling for Autumn

      Fall is coming, and with it the time for warm knit sweaters, cozy blankets, tea and candles. I was feeling in a pretty festive mood so I decided to try to spread some fall cheer to those of you who aren't as exited about the cold (As for the people on the other side of the world who are wearing tank tops and shorts right now, lucky you :)

       One of my favourite things to wear are baggy sweaters. Sadly, I'm not much of a sweatpants person but you can never go wrong with knit sweaters. They are the most cozy thing in the world and they look amazing too... most of the time. Speaking of incredibly cozy things, don't forget about fuzzy socks to keep your feet warm on the cold nights, especially if your heating sucks.

       Another huge favourite for me is candles. I have a bunch of them. I know there are people in the world right now with a room stacked full of candles but I really don't need as much as I have. Unfortunately, my will power is very weak so every time I go into Bath and Body Works I'm like, "I must have everything".

       Surely, I can't forget about the beverages. Coffee, tea and hot chocolate are all spectacular but recently I have been enjoying Strawberry Rhubarb Parfait by Davids Tea. It's a fruity, herbal, caffeine-free tea and it's very yummy.

      So enjoy your autumn (Or at least make the best of it) and comment bellow what your least/most favourite thing about fall is <3

Top three mascaras

  Mascara is essential whether you are just starting out with makeup and want to go for a natural look or are a makeup guru and want big, bold looking lashes. Over time I have experimented with a few different brands and formulas. It's really hard to find mascara for me because for some reason I always end up looking like a racoon at the end of the day with tonnes of smudged mascara under my eyes. These three mascaras seem to work best for me though:

    The Maybelline Mega Push mascara is the most natural looking of the three. It adds lots of volume but not much length, it barely clumps and stays on for an average amount of time (for me it's about 4 hours). The Dior Blackout Waterproof is definitely a bit more on the pricy side, but it is amazing. The mascara goes on without any clumps, it lasts me all day and it makes my lashes look so much more voluminous and a bit longer. Lastly, the Maybelline The Rocket Volume Express mascara is the most bold of the three. It gives you the appearance of extremely long lashes (well at least for me) and can pull together a whole make up look. But beware the waterproof formula is exptrmely hard to wash off even with makeup wipes.

Keep in mind some of the mascaras that work for me might not work for you and if you have tried one of these, what is your opinion on it?

Top four lip products

      Over the course of the past few months I have become obsessed with lip products. Since I can relate to all the broke people of the world, these are my drugstore favourites:

-Revlon Colorburst lip butter in 080 Strawberry Shortcake
Out of all four lip products this one is definitely the most hydrating. It's really great for people who want something to give their lips some life without attracting too much attention.
-Revlon Colorburst balm stain in 035 Charm 
Unlike the lasting finish lip stick this one has a bit more shine. Its a lovely sheer peachy nude colour that you can build it up.
-Lasting Finish Matte by Kate Moss in the shade 101 
In my opinion this is the perfect matte lip stick. It is a pretty natural tone so it is easy to apply on-the-go and it has a great lasting power.
-Rimmle Apocalips lip lacquer in 101 celestial 
It's definitely the most bright and pigmented. Sadly, it may make your lips look a bit wrinkly so make sure to apply lots of lip balm beforehand. 

 What are your favourites?
