Lush Recycling Programme

The Lush recycling programme is one of my favourites because not only are you doing your little bit but you get a free face mask out of it too. Over the weekend, after I'd used up my second pot of Dream Cream I gave them all a good scrub and went in to Lush Southampton to return them. The Lush recycling programme has been going for a number of years. They're made from polypropylene plastic and every pot you recycle gets cleaned, melted and re-moulded to make more black pots for your favourite products. If you go onto the Lush website you can read more about their recycling programme and watch the video which I found really interesting. 

I picked up BB Seaweed as my free face mask as I'd been given two samples of it last month and really liked it. BB Seaweed is a calming facemask with fresh seaweed, ground almonds, rose absolute and aloe vera which all helps to sooth and soften the skin. I'll give it a proper review once I've used it a bit more but so far I'm really liking the effects on my skin. Don't forget to save and clean your pots so you can pick up a free face treat too!

Harvester Windhover Manor

Everyone has been to Harvester right?! Well up until last week I'd never stepped foot in one so when I was asked to visit my local Harvester and try their menu I thought it was better late than never. I took along some friends who were big Harvester fans. We ate light during the day as we were determined to pig out that evening and have the full Harvester experience.

Cocoa Brown Gentle Bronze

I'm a huge fan of Cocoa Brown tan and have raved about it since I first tried it last year and I always have a can of it in my bathroom ready to use. I've tried a couple of their other products from the Chocolate Whip moisturiser to the Tough Stuff scrub and the one I've been using recently is the Gentle Bronzer, a gradual tanner. The Gentle Bronzer is their latest innovative tanning product which gives you beautifully tanned skin every day.

NARS Velvet Matte Lip in Cruella

Nars Velvet Lip Pencil in Cruella has been on my wish list for a very long time. I've gone to purchase this twice before and both times I've had an email from House of Fraser saying I was just that little too late and I've been re-credited my money instead so on a recent trip to Brighton I decided I wasn't leaving without it. Arriving in Brighton on a very wet morning I practically ran to Space NK and was served by a some what rude sales assistant. You know the kind I mean, the ones that look down their nose at you because they feel you shouldn't be in there, which was such a shame because I've always had really great service in there on previous visits. Anyway...

Rodial Super Fit Bodycare

The Rodial Super Fit range has a cult following and rightly so! From their much loved Tummy Tuck to their Boob Job and Arm Sculpt which are also in the range, Super Fit is a targeted body care range which promises to firm, tone and smooth the body. Aimed to help our wobbly bits, it's definitely body care I can get on with. I've seen a lot about the Super Fit Turbo Shots in magazines and newspapers and there's also rave reviews on the Arm Sculpt, a product I'll definitely be buying for myself next.

Photo Strips with Cheerz

After a very lengthy Pinterest session I went on the search to find a company I could print off my Instagram pictures as Polaroids with and came across Cheerz, previously known as Polabox. I did a post on Cheerz back in April after buying a couple of their polaroid boxes of 30 which I still haven't managed to get up on my wall with some yarn and little pegs.

The July Birchbag!

After last months very disappointing June Birchbox with French Sole I had all my fingers and toes crossed that July's would be better and with a sneak peak of this months Birchbag shared on their Instagram I had a glimmer of hope. This week a padded envelope arrived with my July Birchbox* enclosed or in this month's case, the Birchbag! This years holiday essential.

Making a Little Memory with Solopress

When Solopress recently got in touch with me about their new campaign Making Memories, it didn't take me long to say yes. They have partnered up with Little Havens Care, a children's hospice in Essex which specialise in making special memories for children with life threatening conditions. Memories are something that we all cherish and I have many that I hold very closely to my heart. I'm quite old school when it comes to photos, I like to print them out, filling photo albums and frames with them.

Lush Haul

More often than not you will find me browsing in Lush Southampton and buying as many of their products as I can carry, so after yet another trip the weekend to top up the basket, I thought I'd post a haul up on Annie Writes Beauty. I stuck to bath bombs this time as I'm all stocked up on Dream Cream and their shower gels for the moment. Some of the bombs I've picked up I've never used before whereas a couple are old favourites and ones I always make sure I have at home.
