I went to London!!!

With the university I recently had a little trip down to London for a few days and we had to basically take photo's and collect paraphernalia for an alternative tour that we would come up with a concept for. Anyway besides the boring work, I went to a few places in London that I hadn't been to before such as Camden markets. It was really nice to see the culture and how lively the place was.
I really love this picture showing all the different coloured roofs of the shops, there was lots of nice things and hand crafted items that where really artistic. Some of the stalls had some pretty objects and I wish I had more time to browse and buy.
There was a lot of street art around Camden and one bit that I really liked, it kind of reminds me of Santoro London, its a really cute brand I will link the post Here.
I also went to Hamleys toy store, it's a huge toys store and has some amazing things and I felt like a big kid.There is everything there, from the queen made out of Lego to harry potter wands. The amount of cool items I wanted to buy from there was unreal. It was a great trip to London and I hope that I go again soon.

Mini trip to Lush

On my trip to lush I noticed that there are a lot of new things in at the moment, for Christmas, Halloween and bonfire night. The shop it just so inviting so I had to pick up a few things. I did restrain myself from going over board and only picked up three things.
The first was Northern lights this is the purple long cilindrical bath bomb for bomb fire night, its supposed to create lots of bubbles in your bath and has a neon colour centre to make your bath bright and colourful. Thus has things like Ylang Ylang oil in to help with acne or any other skin irritant as it has antiseptic properties, it is also for calming and relaxing the body as it helps relieve muscle tension.  
 The next one is a Christmas themed bath bomb it is the Luxury Lush Pud the main ingredients are lavender for calming and neutralising properties, Tonka absolute to add scent and is also believed to help with joint pain and again Ylang Ylang oil.This is a really nice bath bomb to use after a hard day at work to calm and soothe sore feet and relax the body. I have used this one and it was really nice and made my skin feel so silky and soft afterwards.
 The last one I picked out was the  Sparkly Pumpkin bubble bar, obviously it was Halloween not long ago so I got this plus I undaunted resist it was just so pretty. One thing I will say is that the colour your bath goes doesn't look that nice. It creates loads of nice bubbles for a nice relaxing bath. One of the main ingredients is juniper berry oil which is really great for oily or acne prone skin because of it's antiseptic properties. It has quite a fresh citrus scent but it'a not to over powering, like most lush products it leaves your skin feeling really smooth.
 I hope you enjoyed this post and remember to leave me a comment telling me what your favourite lush product is.
