Lush Valentine's and Other New Bits

After using up all of my Christmas Lush bits there was a huge Lush shaped hole in my life, my baths just weren't the same so the ever so pretty Valentine's collection was the perfect opportunity to stock up. I didn't feel like I needed anything other than bubble bars/bath bombs (there is also a soap, lip scrub, lip gloss and shower gel in the collection as well as another bubble bar, Lonely Heart, which I skipped because it's a little too glitter-tastic for me). The Unicorn Horn bubble bar is definitely the prettiest in every aspect with it's gorgeous colours and the lovely lavender, neroli and ylang ylang essential oils creating a relaxing scent. Heart Throb is a bubble bar (or bubbleroon) which has a gold glitter filled center and claims to turn the water bright red. It contains moisturising shea butter, vanilla, frangipani and geranium oil. Bath bomb wise, Floating Flower promises a rainbow of colours, created with jasmine, ylang ylang and cypress oil. For some reason, Love Locket doesn't seem to currently appear online, however, it is a huge bath bomb big enough for three baths with a hidden bath bomb inside filled with paper hearts and shiny red agar seaweed hearts, cute! The scent is similar to the others with vanilla, jasmine and neroli essential oils, I can safely say there isn't a scent I don't like and I'm so excited to have some Lush goodness back in my life.

I know Lush hauls have been everywhere recently so I thought I'd mix it up and throw in some other recently purchased bits and bobs. The boots were a steal at £25, reduced from £50 in the New Look sale, I was in desperate need of some new boots after my other ones bit the dust and these fitted the bill quite nicely, although they did rip the back of my right foot to shreds on the first wear. In the same sale I found this gem of a grey roll cowl neck jumper (apparently that neck is a thing) for £10, a perfect basic piece which fits rather nicely. I also picked up the REN glycolactic radiance renewal face mask from ASOS after hearing so much about it for the bargain price of £24 (now £25.50), reduced from £30 and I'm hoping it will do my skin some good. Lastly, I've been loving more simlple, dainty jewellery so this hamsa hand necklace from Topshop was a must buy and I've barely taken it off since.

What have you been buying lately?
