Pinch Punch... First Day Of The Month

So here we are, December 1st... This year seems to be absolutely flying by. A bit too quickly for my liking to be honest, before we know it we will all be celebrating the start of 2012!!

I've been a busy bee recently (lots of essays and research for Uni) so when I have had some time to chill out and relax I've found myself either having a lovely hot bath or tucked up in bed reading a good book (currently reading: 'One Day' by David Nicholls).

When having a relaxing bath I often have some kind of Lush product in there. So I popped into Lush recently to pick up a few bits, which if you haven't heard of is a shop that sells 'fresh handmade cosmetics'. These include soaps, bath bombs, shower gels etc. You can't really miss walking past one of their shops as it smells gorgeous. Anyway, when in Lush I bought a few bits for when I am able to find some time for a lovely, relaxing bath. Below is what I purchased. 
'The Rocketeer' - This one is a Christmas special, or at least I think it is! It's a bath ballistic and I haven't used it before so I can't comment on the outcome. This looks great but I must admit its been crumbling.  £2.75

'The Comforter' - This smells lovely, it smells like love heart sweets to me. Gives your bath lots of bubbles and turns your bath water pink. You can get a few baths out of this one. To use it you normally break a bit off and crumble it under running water. This is one I always repurchase.  £3.99

'Abominaball' - This one is a Christmas special. It's a bath bomb and smells like toffee and vanilla. This is my first purchase of this one so I'm not sure what it's like in the bath.  £2.95

If you have yet to try Lush products I strongly recommend it. Especially if you're a fan of baths as they have such a variety of bubble bars and bath bombs! The great thing is that they have a variety of scents to suit different people, so if you aren't a fan of sweet scents then there are other minty or citrus scents in other products.  Lush Website - UK

  Until next time... Happy December!

A Slow Starter - Current Favourites

Since first creating this little space of mine I've noticed how I never seem to have any time to actually write on here. I'm always so busy (I'm in my final year at University - this doesn't help) I barely even have time to just chill out and have some time for myself to be honest. But that's life sometimes I suppose.

But anyway, here I am. A quick post just to list a few of my favourite things so far in this month of November. Random I know!

  • Despite it being absolutely freezing, I must say there is nothing better than being tucked up in a warm bed listening to the rain and wind outside. Kind of relaxing I think.
  • Shopping. Okay who doesn't. But... It's not all for me. I'm trying to be super organised and get some Christmas presents sorted nice and early. This is actually very rare for me. But I really have enjoyed walking around the shops seeing all the Christmas lights and decorations. And all the cute little gifts that are floating around at this time of year.
  • Spending what time I do have with my family. So despite being quite busy I have had the chance to spend some time with my brother who I don't often see. Which of course was lovely. 
  • Music... I think this one will always be a favourite of mine. So I do a fair bit of driving around and I often have my iPhone plugged in to my stereo so I'm usually always getting new music and playing around with my playlists. I've been listening to Katy Perry - The One That Got Away pretty much all  of the time. I've also just purchased Rihanna's - Talk That Talk album which will probably soon become a favourite of mine. I've had Farewell and We Found Love on repeat.
  • That AMAZING feeling when you've completed a piece of work/assignment. Something that literally takes over for a few days or weeks. There is nothing better than that feeling when you've completed it and handed it in.
  • Lush products, popped in here the other week to get some presents for friends, and I thought I'd treat myself to a Cinder's bath bomb and The Comforter. Lovely.
  • Probably one of the greatest things ever - Cosy Pyjamas.

New Album - New Love

Hello again, I thought I'd blog about one of my recent album purchases which is Ed Sheeran's debut album. The albums titled '+'. To be honest I wasn't sure what I was expecting. I've obviously heard a few of his releases on the radio such as, 'The City' and 'The A Team'. I liked the sound of him so thought I'd purchase his album and I've got to say I absolutely love it! He has some really beautiful, thoughtful, acoustic tracks on there which are quite different to the style that you may expect. He's clearly put a lot of emotion and thought into his records. And I do find listening to his album really chills me out so it's been on repeat more or less. I'm not the greatest at descriptions but it's honestly worth a listen. Just thought I'd share my love of him and his new album with you guys :) 

Fav Tracks: 'Give Me Love', 'You Need Me I Don't Need You' and 'Lego House'. Although, to be honest this is one of those albums in which I genuinely enjoy pretty much every track. What are your favourites? And what do you think of the album?

My First Blog Post!

So here I am after having just created this blog wondering quite what to put in my first blog post! I suppose I should start by saying hello... if there is anyone reading this. I guess I felt compelled to start a blog for a variety of reasons. But I think one of the biggest reasons is I'm quite a creative person and I do enjoy reading blogs myself so I thought why not?

This blog will eventually become a sort of reflection of the things I'm passionate about and enjoy so I suppose a reflection of myself. So topics that you can expect to see on this blog will range from beauty and fashion reviews, rambles, book reviews and discussions, and just other general topics such as travelling and life overall really. I'm not claiming to be an expert on any of these things, I'm just an average 21 year old girl with a passion for writing and all of the above :) So if you do happen to stumble across this blog I do apologise for its current appearance. Bear with me, I'm getting there. I'm off now... but I'll be back soon.
