REVIEW: Lush Think Pink Bathbomb

Another one of my many Lush reviews for you chums!
This is one of the smaller Lush bath bombs I've tried and I loved it! As soon as I put it in the bath it was literally like an explosion, I think it's the most excited bath bomb I've ever had it coloured the water straight away!
It's definitely one of Lush's more vibrant bath bombs too and the bath water stayed a beautiful hot pink throughout my bath!

I also love the beautiful flower decorations on the bath bomb, it's such a pretty bath bomb and the colour is so stunning!
The only thing I'd say about this is the unexpected confetti typed things which came out of it - I'm not a fan of paper in water so personally this was a negative (but the only negative!) for me.
Have you tried this?

My Bucket List

Since my Europe road trip I've got a 'thing' about travelling and suddenly want to go everywhere all at once! Although I want to experience the world now, I also want to experience the world when I'm married and have a family so it's hard to choose what to do now and what to leave until later! I thought I'd share with you a few things on my bucket list!
  • Norway - Northern Lights
  • Australia - Great Barrier Reef
  • New York at Christmastime
  • Los Angles
  • Greece
  • Spain
  • France - Disneyland at Christmas
  • Switzerland - Mountains
  • Morocco
  • Iceland - Blue Lagoon
  • Caribbean
  • Mexico 

Do you have a bucket list?

REVIEW: Strawberry Buttercream Yankee Candle

Not sure I've ever done a candle review before so bare with!
I got this as a birthday present and it just so happened to be my first Yankee Candle in a jar that I've ever had!

At first I was a bit unsure about the smell, it's very sweet (although, I do usually like sweet) but sickly sweet so I wasn't too fond of it.

However, the other evening I thought I'd light it and I love it! When burning, the candle scent is actually quite subtle, it's a more pleasant sweet smell - a bearable one! It does smell of Strawberry Buttercream too, this is something I always admire: that Yankee Candle are always able to replicate the real and not artificial smell of something.

Have you tried any Yankee Candles?

REVIEW: Pitch Perfect 2

Hi chums!

It's been a while since I've been to the cinema to watch a musical, so this was a long awaited film for me - as in, it's been in my calendar since about March!
It's no secret that I love musicals and since Pitch Perfect I also have a new found love for acappella! This film was fairly different from the first, it was still mainly focused around Beca but Fat Amy has a bit more screen time too which is always  good! 

Much to my enjoyment the 'rift off' was back but in a different form, and there are several familiar faces back too - not just the ones that are on the film poster - so look out for those!

As seen in the trailer there is a more cultural feel to this film and the German singers are INCREDIBLE, the first song they sing which can be heard in the trailer is almost haunting it's so good!

The only things I didn't like about this film as much was the occasional sexual and racist comments made - no harm is meant by them, but I feel like a few too many are made.

Overall, I really enjoyed this film and it was so nice to have old and new characters joining together and creating so many cool songs!

Have you seen this film yet?

A Spontaneous Adventure

Funnily enough since my Europe road trip I've had a THING for adventures and driving around finding cool places to visit! The other day my boyfriend and I decided to go on a spontaneous trip to Cerne Abbas so I thought I'd take some photos to share with you!
So much green!

An Evening At Stourhead

Not so much a spontaneous trip this time, my boyfriend and I went to Stourhead to get some footage for a future job he's working on. As you know I like to take photos on trips like these so again thought I'd share with you some of them!

Just a short post to wish anyone doing exams good luck! And also remember that a grade doesn't define who you are, you're so much more than a letter or number on a sheet of paper!

REVIEW: Lush Honey Bee Bath Bomb

The other day I was feeling pretty down - we all have those days! And my Mum gave me this bath bomb to try and cheer me up and make me more relaxed, I'm pleased to say it worked!
This isn't a bath bomb I would usually go for, I'm not really a 'yellow' person (I know, not getting a bath bomb based on colour is silly) but I ADORED the smell of this one! It was almost like a sweet-citrus smell probably due to the orange and honey in it which is an unusual but gorgeous combination.
Once plonked in the bath (I'm not an elegant female, I may as well make that clear) it fizzed very quickly and didn't last that long which made me a bit sad as it's so fun to watch something fizzing around in your bath!
The bath turned quite a nice shade of yellow which was a new thing for me, and as usual the Lush effect (where your skin feels silky soft after using a Lush product) was present again!
I think I will buy this the next time I get some Lush products as I loved the smell SO much and who wouldn't love a yellow bath?!
