New Lush Products

Saturday, 9 December 2017

A few weeks ago I bought some new Lush products as I have recently decided that I want a natural skincare routine. I have struggled with my skin for a long time...I don't have a specific skin type, instead I have a combination of quite a few. Usually, my skin is oily and acne prone. However, sometimes it can be combination as well as sensitive. As you can tell, this makes it extremely difficult to find an effective skincare routine.
Therefore, I decided that having a more 'natural' skincare routine might be the best next step. I transitioned to cruelty-free makeup at the beginning of the year and I planned to use cruelty-free skincare as well. Most of my skincare is from The Body Shop, so the majority of my products were already cruelty-free. However, Lush products have always appealed to me due to the products being handmade with natural ingredients (also all the products I bought are also vegan). The products I recently picked up were Angels on Bare Skin, Tea Tree Toner Water and Cupcake.

Missing my home by the sea

Sunday, 5 November 2017


When I first started university in Bath I didn't feel overly homesick. The campus is surrounded by farms and animals which actually made it feel quite homely. However, I really started to feel homesick after Christmas, when the weather started to improve and it started to actually get quite warm. Living in Cornwall, when it's hot you simply go to the beach. It's a no-brainer! Therefore, living more than half an hour away from the nearest beach proved quite the challenge. When the temperatures were reaching 20+ degrees I had no idea what to do with myself. It seemed so strange that going to the beach just wasn't an option.

Therefore, in the summer I went to the beach as much as possible and really enjoyed it. Being far away made me realise how lucky I am to live in such a beautiful place, and that I should appreciate it more when I'm home. Now that I've been back at university for about a month and a half, I'm starting to miss it again. So I decided to make this post, kind of as a homage to Cornwall!
