Lush Boxing Day Haul

I do love to splurge on Lush goodies throughout the year, and I definitely took advantage of the Boxing Day sale at Lush. My favourite shower gel, Rose Jam, is a limited edition product during the holidays, and last year I only picked up a 250g bottle (which I used sparingly and it lasted the whole year!). This time, I got the 500g bottle which means I can use it without being stingy. In my opinion it is much better than the well known Snow Fairy shower gel, but I think it's higher price point (thanks to Argan oil and Rose Absolute) has meant it's not as popular.

I also bought the Little Snow Fairy and the Winter Garden gift sets (for myself of course). At half price, I could justify buying both, and am considering going back to Lush during the week to see if they have any left (which I highly doubt). The Little Snow Fairy set contains 100g Snow Fairy shower gel and 100g Pink Fun. I am a fan of the bubble bars (not too keen on bath bombs) so I know I'll enjoy making my own creations with the bar of Fun. The Winter Garden set includes 100g Rose Jam shower gel (you can never have too much!), 45g Ro's Argan Body Conditioner, 100g Sultana of Soap and 10g sample of Helping Hands hand cream (and a large bauble to store it all in).

I think I have enough Lush products now, including the few that I got as presents. I'm looking forward to using them over the year and hopefully I'll have a few new favourites for next year =)


No rest for the wicked (a.k.a. trainee teachers!)

I knew that as the PGCE commenced, there would be a lot of work involved and I suppose my previous work in school did prepare me for the long hours, dedication and energy that is needed to teach. What I didn't really account for, was all the paperwork that is included! Observations, monitoring, assessments and not to forget the assignments! My first M-Level assignment is due at the end of the Christmas holidays, so while many prople are enjoying the festive season, I'll be stuck in books and on my laptop, trying to churn out 4500 words.

I will be going to the Boxing day sales tomorrow so there is a little break planned. I'm going to be one of those crazy people that gets up early for the Next sale (and then waits for the rest of the stores to open). Personally, I'm looking forward to sales at Lush, Dorothy Perkins and Boots. I've already started my sale shopping with some craft goodies from Hobby Craft.

Happy Holidays everyone!
