Mini Lush Haul | AlexRocksXO

I'm not the kind of person that can walk into Lush and purchase 15 bath bombs, 11 bubble bars and 3 bars of soap in one hit, in my brain that doesn't justify.. But I can do that on several different hits. I've visited Lush 3 times in the past couple of weeks and thought I'd share what I've bought with you all.


I picked up 2 bath bombs, one of which I have used. The first is CindersThis smells just like Christmas, totally smelling of cinnamon. It's a really strong smell but it's not overpowering, it smells gorgeous and I cannot wait to use it. It even has popping candy on the top of it which I'm really excited to experience.. I think it will be really cool (or really weird..).
The second is Shoot for the Stars. This really reminds me of Honey I Washed the Kids soap, with notes of vanilla, caramel and honey it's definitely a sweet scent, but not at sweet as something like Snow Fairy. The bath bomb itself is stunning. It turns your water a stunning violet colour with silver shimmer running through it. A definite winner in my books.



I also picked up two bubble bars. The first Rose Jam. Probably my favourite bubble bar from Lush. It smells just like rose Turkish Delight with coconut running through it. This is so moisturising and I always come out of the bath feeling super soft after using this. I can get two or three uses out of this, and for £3.50 it's not too bad.
The last one is something I've never tried before and its The Green Bubbleroon. This really reminds me of grass, and I really love that. Freshly cut grass in the summer is the most amazing smell and this bubble bar is pretty close to the smell. I'm hoping it will turn my water green and will make my whole bathroom smell of grass!

Instagram #2 | AlexRocksXO


1 | Red cups are at Starbucks, which means Christmas is almost here. These little things get me so excited!

2| I got locked in my classroom at college.. It was a pretty hilarious thing to happen, luckily the caretaker came to my rescue and unlocked the door for me my hero.

3| I had the most amazing bath. The Golden Wonder bath bomb from Lush is definitely a new favourite of mine.

4| I love Halloween, and this year I carved a cat into my pumpkin, I think next year I'm going to try some harder designs.



5 | I bought a new scarf and I love it. The whole scarf is covered in different patterns and autumnal colours and I think its so cool.

6| I have a new found love with The Body Shop Seaweed range. I wrote a post about it all here.

7| I went to Paris with my college for a few days and successfully ordered a Starbucks in French. I was very proud of myself.

8| On the topic of Paris on the last night the whole group went to a bar up the road for a few cheeky cocktails. They were very strong and very cheap (my favourite kind ;-) ).



9| I went to the Louvre and saw the Mona Lisa. It took us half an hour to find it in the huge art gallery. A lot of running, steps and deep breaths.

10| I walked to the top of the Eiffel Tower (as high as you can walk) but it was an amazing experience. I went in the lift before but this time I definitely wanted to walk it and I am so glad I did. When we got back to the bottom we all looked up and realised how high we had just been, it was crazy!

11| Back to England now. I went to see Ellie Goulding and she was amazing! Such an electric atmosphere and we were so close to the front, such a great gig.

12| We had a week at work where we could wear what we wanted to show off our "sense of style", one of the days that I worked I loved what I was wearing, hence the picture.



I wrote a post similar to this a few months ago (you can read it here) and when I stumbled across it I knew I wanted to write another one. I might make this into a full series every now and then. What do you think?

The Body Shop Soapstone Oil Burner & Cranberry Joy Home Oil | AlexRocksXO





I started to work at The Body Shop recently and I am absolutely loving it. One thing I love about the store is that it always smells gorgeous; I always wondered why it smelled so good and whilst I was at work they asked me to put the oil burner on, it was this that infused the shop with delicious smells. The oil we are burning at the moment is the Cranberry Joy and it smells amazing. The smell has spread all around my house and is amazing.
The Soapstone burners are really special. They are made with natural soapstone and not one pattern is the same. Every burner is a one of a kind piece for your home, and I love that; it's only £10 which I think is great value, and the oils are only £4 each. You can find them here, and the oils here.

Yellow Wool Coat / Combination Scarf / Checkered Soft Scarf / Coat With Contrasting Collar
Crackle Effect Bag / Trousers With Faux Leather / Checkered Trousers / Combination Felt Blucher 

Sitting at home on a Wednesday evening after scoffing a beautiful coconut rice stir fry I thought I might as well do some online window shopping because I had nothing else to do. (Apart a huge pile of college work..) I started to add more and more things into my online basket and then realised I had quite a few items in there and thought I would share them with you. I love to look at wishlist posts so I hope you get some inspiration from this.

I'd love to know what you think of these items and what you have in your online baskets or anything you have your eyes on at the moment. I hope you're all having a lovely week.
