I typically go away a few times a year but I save my big vacation for the Summer. This year, I decided I wanted to do a bigger vacation in the Fall versus one in the Summer so I’ve had a ton of smaller trips this Summer but not a big two week or more getaway.
Some of of my Summer getaways were road trips, others were by plane, and one was even by train!
If you’re anything like me and either decided to do a Fall vacation, just haven’t had the time in your schedule for a Summer vacation, or perhaps you had a really busy Summer and need a break this would be a great time plan a weekend Staycation. Just pick one day, maybe a lazy Saturday, where you stay at home, binge watch your fav show, read a book, watch a movie, spend a few hours wasting away playing Batman Arkham Knight, just do something you and you alone enjoy doing! Make it an indulgence, spoil yourself, and don’t forget some of these Staycation Beauty and Makeup Picks.
Lush Life’s a Beach Body Scrub ($6.95) is a new body scrub creation that will benefit the waterways from microbead pollution! 100% of the purchase price is donated to organizations committed to protecting our waterways.
So what’s Life’s a Beach? Every go to the beach, walk or lay in the sand, and come home and feel like your skin is so damn smooth? So yeah, sand is a natural exfoliant and Lush harvests that in this new scrub!
So Summer seems to be on the way finally and I’ll have to combat oily Summer skin soon! Well actually, I already am! I’m typically pretty dry in the Winter but Summer arrives and suddenly my forehead is oily, my cheeks are kinda dry, yet my nose and chin are producing a ton of oil. It’s a combination of crazy. But mostly, I’m pretty shiny.
I do blame the weather! My skin hits warm weather and suddenly it starts producing a lot more oily but also I blame my SPF at times. I feel quite shiny sometimes after applying my sunscreen! Whatever it is, I know my skin is far from dry in the Summer!
How do I combat oily Summer skin? By switching up my skincare routine!
If you’re struggling with mildly oily skin or combination skin Lush Imperialis Moisturizer and Lush Eau Roma Water is the perfect power couple to beat your Summer oily skin issues!
Gorilla perfume fan? Well, Lush has listed 7 new Gorilla fragrances in a new permanent collection.
Lush has always dabbled in perfume particularly with their other company (that unfortunately closed shopped), B Never. Around 2009-2010 Lush introduced their new line of fragrances titled simply Gorilla. The Gorilla line included several new fragrances and later on Lush rebranded old favorites like Karma and included them in the Gorilla Collection. Soon, much to my delight, they started to also include B Never fragrances in the Gorilla permanent collection (although I still have hopes at some point they will bring back B Never’s Keep it Fluffy perfume!).
Gorilla is exciting for me because I truly believe Lush knows how to create incredible fragrances. Simon, son of Mark Constantine, one of Lush’s co-founders, is responsible for some of the greatest Lush perfumes I own (and likely the creator of the fragrances of some of your favorite bath products too!). Like his dad, he has an incredible nose for fragrance and creates some truly unique scents.
If you’re a lover of niche fragrances I’m sure you’ll be as excited as I am about these new fragrances.
Take a look!
I’m having one of those week’s where my mom seems like the only person in the world that can make it all better! It’s a funny thing with mothers because no matter how old you get they still treat you like you’re their baby. When I’m out and about with my mom she literally grabs my hand when we walk across the street. It’s sweet, cute, and it’s just in her nature to be maternal.
So of course, when Mother’s Day arrives we should treat her to some extra special loving and why not do that with a few pretty little gifts from Lush?
