The Lush Cosmetics Father's Day 2021 Picks

(Features press samples & affiliate links - see disclaimer)

With the Lush Cosmetics Easter Collection firmly behind us, it's time to celebrate the men in our life with the oh-so-cool Father's Day collection - it's a good'un this year. 

Father's Day is 20th June in the UK and so you have one week to fill your baskets and pick up something special. I find with Father's Day it can be very sport or beer-focused, kinda bland to be honest so with the new range hitting stores it was as good a time as any to check it out. 

The collection features fresh shower gels, funky bath bombs and some fab gift sets so I'm gonna talk you through what was in our latest Lush drop.

The All NEW Solid Shampoo Bars from L'Occitane

(Features press samples & affiliate links - see disclaimer)

I've dabbled in shampoo bars over the last six years and now more and more brands have released their own, most recently L'Occitane. I'm a die-hard fan of the French skincare brand and use a lot of their products in my day-to-day life so I was really excited to see their own take on shampoo bars for the first time. 

Having already been awarded Best Sustainable Hair Care Brand in the 2021 Woman & Home Awards and been eco-approved, the collection of three shampoo bars have been whizzing in and out of stock all month.

What I Read in May + Mini Reviews

Books, books books! This year is flying by - I feel like I say that all the time but a new month means a quick refresh on what I've been reading over the last month. I read five books this month and a couple were big ol' duds but three stole my heart, especially one that was written by one of my favourite authors, Taylor Jenkins Read. 

My TBR pile is never-ending and I'm a nightmare for continually adding to it so I've placed a ban on myself until I've worked through what I have at home - not including 99p Kindle offers, oops!

I have five mini-reviews for you today and if you want to keep up with what I'm reading then you can follow me on Goodreads too - Alice Spake // Goodreads.

Stepping into Summer // Dr. Martens

(Features press samples & affiliate links - see disclaimer)

The sun is shining, the temperature is warming up and we've gone quite a few days without any rain which means Summer should be right around the corner, and what better way to celebrate the next season than with a little something-something to freshen up your wardrobe! 

I don't know about you but I like to get my feet Summer ready each year so the first thing I do is make an appointment for a pedicure, have my nails painted and choose some fabulous footwear so my feet can breathe - this year my choice has been Dr.Martens and I am beyond excited because I've wanted a pair for so long, I just wasn't sure they were very me. 

Well... to hell with that, I'm wearing what I want this Summer and I can't wait!
