5 Reasons I love Lush; a guest post from my little brother.

Wednesday, 29 May 2013

Well hi there my name is Finlay and I am Iona's ten year old little brother, Iona is letting me guest post to improve my writing and tell you all why I love Lush so much! My mum, sister, brother and dad all love Lush too, today I will show you my top five favourite Lush things.

This is me riding my scooter.

1. Rocketeer- this is my number 1 because it zooms round the bath.

*Sadly this bath ballistic is not available at the moment*

2. Ickle Baby Bot- this is a great bath ballistic because it was the first bath bomb I tried and I love the baby blue colour that it turns my bath water.

£1.90 each
3. Bubblegum lip scrub- I like this because of the flavour and the way it leaves my lips soft.

£5.25 25g
4.Dragons Egg- is a fun bath ballistic because not only does it leaves the bath water like a rainbow, it releases popping candy and a cool stream of confetti and it smells nice too!

£3.20 each
5. Catastrophe cosmetic (Fresh face mask) - I love this face mask because it leaves my skin super smooth and helps stop me getting spots. (Sometimes my family uses this face mask on nights in.)

£5.95 75g
I hope you have enjoyed reading my first guest post on my big sisters blog, hopefully she'll let me post again soon.

Over and out,

Well hello there,

It's been a while blogosphere and for that I am truly sorry, to be quite honest as I said in my last brief post things lately have been rather hectic! I'll be filling you all in properly on it all in posts to come over the next few weeks but for now a much needed nail art post!

My lovely friend Marge who is simply fabulous and works at Pinky's (in Stirling) did these lovely Cath Kidston inspired nails for me yesterday. I'm so happy to finally have my pretty nails back as my nail art has been a little neglected over the past few weeks...

Polishes Models Own and Revlon.

I love the subtle pastle colours Marge used, they are so pretty! :)

This week is the first week of my summer freedom from college, and a fairly busy one too, working, a work night and a time travel themed Birthday night out, in comparison to the last few weeks fairly quiet one though. My main aims for this week though is to get back into blogging, finish unpacking my room and very exciting get my invitations sorted for my Birthday party!

My next post is a rather exciting one as I attended the Scottish Hair and Beauty Awards on Sunday, watch this space lovelies.

Till next time,

P.S the lovely Marge of Pinky's is on twitter @marge_at_pinkys and is also on instagram @breakhearts_not_nails (as am I @ionabb)

Hello there strangers...

Well hello there,

Firstly I must apologise for my extended and unintended absence life of late has been a little hectic to say the least. What with an unplanned moving house, coursework deadlines, exams and blogger events I've barely had time to study and sadly my little ol' blog has suffered as a consequence.

Anyways I'm halfway through my exams now, just my journalism practical exam and then my marketing exam next week, phew! And we've fully moved into our new flat though not quite fully unpacked yet, I'm looking forward to doing a room tour post over summer once my room is finished :) we had our last ever 'march out' earlier today from our last ever Army quarter, it's crazy as apart from Australia and boarding school I've only ever lived in army-houses (that I can remember anyway.)

I thought I'd pop up a few wee pictures to fill you in a little on what I've been up to;

Sadly we had to say goodbye to our little bunnies, as we don't have room for them at the new flat :(  I miss fluffy cuddles with Fily and Kily, they are now settled in with a lovely family with a big garden.

:( sad goodbyes

Meet Gladys the hamster, the newest addition to our family, Finlay's hamster.

Finally tried Pinto and boy it was good!

Gave out copies of The Reader for World Book Day which also happened to be the day everything got rather hectic and we discovered we were moving, hence sadly I have few copies left... Any #scottishbloggers who I might see at any events soon let me know and I can bring a copy for you!

Learnt a valuable life skill from my Granny; wallpapering! Behold my new bedroom feature wall!

Studied... not as much as I hoped to fit in though :/
A brief snippet of my latest goings on; I've purposefully not included any recent blog events as they'll be blogged about over the next few days :)

Till next time lovelies,

The joys of being busy!
