Each cocktail within this section is comprised of limited edition products, falling within a seasonal theme such as, Christmas Panto. The predominant umbrella themes … More Seasonal Lush Cocktails:

FairyLoot: February’s Emperors and Fugitives Box [Subscription Box Review]

Introduction:    Following my cancellation of OwlCrate due to financial limitations and the demise of the Nerdy Bookworm Box, I decided to give the book subscription box, FairyLoot, a chance. As I had been creeping it for a while on social media and kept wavering despite the fact that the service was clearly very popular … More FairyLoot: February’s Emperors and Fugitives Box [Subscription Box Review]

Spooky Box Club: Dead Cute Box [Subscription Box Review]

Introduction: Advertised as ‘A box filled with creepy cute treats for pastel goths everywhere’ the Dead Cute box from Spooky Box Club did not disappoint!

However, as … More Spooky Box Club: Dead Cute Box [Subscription Box Review]

Spooky Box Club: Spirits and Spells [Subscription Box Review]

Introduction: Following on from the Urban Gothic box is the Spirits and Spells box, featured in this post.

Spooky Box Club: Urban Gothic [Subscription Box Review]

Lord of the Baths: The Fellowship of the Tub [Lush Cosmetics Bath Cocktail Recipe]

   One night (during yet another bout of insomnia) I was curled up on the sofa, surrounded by lots of fluffy cushions whilst watching ‘The Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring’ (LOTR) for the umpteenth time when the idea of LOTR themed Lush bath cocktails came to me.

Seasonal Lush Mash-Up: Luxury Lush Pud, Golden Egg and Modfather Bubble Bar [Lush Cosmetics Bath Cocktail]

Plus, it is the perfect way for me to reduce … More Seasonal Lush Mash-Up: Luxury Lush Pud, Golden Egg and Modfather Bubble Bar [Lush Cosmetics Bath Cocktail]

Spooky Box Club: Blood Moon Box[Subscription Box Review]

Introduction: Okies, I am seriously starting to struggle to find words that adequately express how much I love the Spooky Box Club. Even when the box as a whole has not been a favourite of mine, such as the Voodoo box, the fact that there are always one or two items that I absolutely adore … More Spooky Box Club: Blood Moon Box[Subscription Box Review]

My Little Pony Box: November/December 2016 [Subscription Box Review]

Introduction: I have put November/December in the title of this review, as I received two boxes a couple of days apart and I cannot decipher whether they were sent as a single month or two separate months. As both of the boxes seem to have been posted on the same day. This postage would suggest … More My Little Pony Box: November/December 2016 [Subscription Box Review]
