Liverpool shopping haul

Recently I went shopping to Liverpool and as i'm extremely lazy, I still haven't put everything I bought away haha! I spent all my money which makes me sad as i'm awful at saving and it didn't seem like I bought much anyway :(
As you can see, the trip was pretty successful.. 

The first thing I bought was this long sleeved crop top from Topshop (really bad picture, I know!)
Although the sleeves are reallllly long on me, i'll be wearing it under jackets and coats until Summer so it'll be fine. I love it because it will go with so much such as skater skirts, shorts, leggings, jeans etc and it was quite reasonable for Topshop as it was £10 and will fit me for ages.

I also got these light denim jeggings from Topshop and i've wanted them for ages because I saw them on the website a few weeks back.
These are super comfy and fit really well. They're quite long on me though because i'm really small :( They go with lots too which is really good as I can never find jeans that fit me and these will be good instead of paying lots for jeans that I wont wear! They were £22 which I think was pretty good as the quality of these are wonderful!

Next, I got a few lovely things from Primark as their collections at the moment are actually really nice.

First I got these pyjama bottoms, after seeing many people on Instagram with them, i've just really wanted a pair! I love the print, texture and the price as they were only £6 haha! I think they look really cute and girlie and i'll probably just wear them around the house with a vest top.

The other two things I got were these really cute, pink frilly socks and earrings. I have an unhealthy obsession with socks... especially frilly ones and I just think these will be so cute for summer! Also, they were only £1.50 which is so good.
 As for the earrings.. well, I LOVE them! £2.50 is such a bargain and I really do think that Primark has a very good jewellery selection. The earrings definitely look like the Topshop/River Island type in my opinion so I really do recommend these as the price is amazing and they're all so nice.

(By the way, can anyone please tell me how to rotate pictures?! I have no idea, ooops)

The next shop I went to was Urban Outfitters and lets just say that the home decor things in there are PERFECT! I really could've bought everything :( 
I bought this mini shelf/stand for when I decorate my bedroom because it will hopefully fit in really well. It was £12 which I think is a little overpriced and it isn't the best quality but however, I do think it's just so cute and girlie and aw I loveeee it!

So now onto one of my favourite shops, Lush! Like I said in my last post, I bought two things from there which were:

The one on the left is Fluffy Egg and it has the nicest scent ever! It is so, so nice. I haven't used it yet as i'm trying to save it but I think it's going to be amazing. Now onto the one on the right, the Washing Up Fairy. As I said in the last post, I am very stupid and didn't realise that this was supposed to be used for washing up dishes... It smells of lemon/lime and I didn't want it to go to waste so yep, I used it in my bath haha! It didn't really do much other than turn the water a green-ish colour and a few bubbles appeared.
Note to self: Always read the labels ;)

Okay so the final shop that I bought something from was WHSmiths and on Instagram i've noticed how everyone raves about how 'amazing' John Green's The Fault in Our Stars is and so it was half price and I decided to go a head and buy it, yayy! The other thing I bought was the latest company magazine as it's my favourite and this months looks especially pretty and cute!

(Again, I need help rotating, haha)

I know this dragged, sorry!

Lush reviews

So, as this is my first ever blog post (eeek) I really wasn't sure what to write about..

As i am completely obsessed with Instagram and on it 24/7, i've noticed that a lot of people use Lush cosmetic products and everyone seems to love them! Only recently since about December I have started using the products and I love them all so much.

Lush are a company that make fresh, handmade products that are amazing for your skin and are suitable for vegetarians and vegans too! They make lots of different products that range from bath bombs, shampoos, soaps, make up, face-masks and more. All the staff are extremely kind and always happy to help you, it's so cute, awh.

Here are some of the products i've bought and a what I think them..

  • Creamy Candy bubble bar.

I was really disappointed with this bubble bar as it was one of the first things I purchased from Lush. It smells amazing though, a lot like candy floss. It's one of the cheaper bubble bars at £2.50 but when I used it in the bath it didn't do much other than make the room smell lovely and turn the bath a weird orangey colour.

  • Bubblegum Lip scrub.

If people have been to Lush i know most people will have purchased this product. I was really excited about trying it as everyone i know who has it adores it and says it's amazing. I really don't agree though. I think it's overpriced as it was £5.25 and it doesn't keep my lips smooth for very long. I might be using it wrong, i'm really not sure? On the other hand though, it smells a lot like bubblegum which i love and it tastes like it too.

  • Popcorn Lip scrub.

When I purchased the two products above, I also purchased this. I really LOVE this so, so, so much! I was so happy with this when I bought it as it was half price so I got it for about £2.60. It smells more like toffee popcorn but it tastes divine (I usually end up licking most of it off my lips before i've used it properly, shh) I probably wouldn't buy this or the bubblegum one again though because it really doesn't do much!

  • Iccle Baby Bot.

This bath bomb is so adorable I really couldn't resist! I think it's the cheapest bath bomb too at £1.90, wooooo. It smells like lavender and turns your bath a pale blue colour. It makes you smell so nice too and it's meant to make you fall asleep quickly and it surprisingly it did for me. Definitely will be purchasing this again :-)

  • Twilight bath bomb.

I was so pleased with this bath bomb, ah seriously it's amazing! It was £3.20 but it's actually really big in reality. I think it draws your attention because of the colour and it smells like lavender (again) and when you put it in the bath it slowly releases a bright pink layer and a creamy, bubbly layer too. After a while when it's gotten much smaller, a blue layer starts coming out as well and it's just so pretty and is so relaxing.

I've recently been out over the past few days to Liverpool and bought a mothers day limited edition bath bomb and an Easter limited edition one too.

I got The Washing Up Fairy (£3.25) which is actually for the washing up and I didn't even realise... haha, oh well i'm still going to see if it works in the bath! The other bath bomb i got was the Easter special, Fluffy Egg (£2.95) which smells absolutely AMAZING! Really excited to use them both even though i'm not sure that the mothers day one will go too well... oops :(
