Lush 50% Off Sale HAUL

I haven't gone shopping to Lush when the Christmas products arrived earlier this year because I knew there was going to be a huge sale after Christmas and I would be able to get my hand on bubble baths, bath bombs and of course, the best, Snow Fairy.
So the sale has just begun. And yes, I went to the nearest Lush store and bought a few of their limited edition products. Plus, for half the price, you can purchase things that were made before October. Nice, eh?

Magic Wand

I wanted to try this out last year, but I found it too expensive. I wasn't very sure if I really wanted to buy this, but then I was like why the heck not, so I gave it a go, and it came back home with me.
If you haven't already know, it smells exactly like Snow Fairy. Plus, I really like that little bell on it.

Angel's Delight

I love its colours and smell. It literally smells as sweet as gummy bears!

Shine So Bright

These hair treatments were made before October so I could get them for half the original price. To be honest, I don't know anything about it, only that it's good for dry hair and split ends. The girl in the store recommended this after she took a look at my hair. The ends of my hair are very dry and split easily, so I hope it's going to be as good as she said.

Snow Fairy

I don't think I should say anything about it. It smells the same but it's got a new look. Adorable in every way. It's their best Christmas product and I can't wait to use it :)

Did you purchase their limited edition Christmas products? I'm sure there's some kind of sale wherever you live, so go and get some of them while they're avalaible!

Christmas Shopping & Presents For My Sister

This year I decided to order some presents online. I've never done it before so I was a little bit nervous about it, but almost everything went well. I got an e-mail from UPS that my apartment number was missing but I knew the address was good, so I had to call them and two days after, the package finally arrived.
I also recieved my package from this week.
Here are the products I ordered for my sister:

- Crabtree & Evelyn India Hicks Island Living Spider Lily Hand Cream
- Burt's Bees Hand Repair Cream

I've never heard of Crabtree and Evelyn but the packaging looked lovely and the description of the smell sounded good too so I thought I'd give it a try. In real life, the packaging is more beautiful than it looked on the website and the cream really smells amazing.

On the other hand, I've heard lots and lots and lots of good things about Burt's Bees hand creams and when I opened and smelled it I was like 'Oh my God this stinks!'. I really don't like the smell of the cream and I haven't tried it yet but I hope it's going to be as good as it's supposed to be. 

From Forever 21 I ordered a grey pullover with a pink sequined heart on it. It's cute and the quality is very good. I'm pretty sure my sister will love it!

What did you get for your sister(s)/brother(s) ?

      Crabtree & Evelyn India Hicks Island Living Spider Lily Ultra-Moisturising Hand Therapy 50g    £ 8.00
      Burt's Bees Shea Butter Hand Repair Cream 50g       £ 6.80

      Sequined Heart Pullover   € 19.75
      Lacquered Rhinestone Ring Set    € 5.90

Have you finished Christmas shopping? What did you buy for your loved ones?

Summer Favourites | Nail Polishes

Autumn is coming, and this fact makes me sad. The first days of summer was incredible, in a positive way, then my immune system broke down a bit that resulted in a ridiculous skin problem. Now I can't go outside because it looks disgusting, and I should avoid being sweaty. I can't take my favourite bubble baths and hot showers, only two-three minute long showers with luke-warm water, as the spots on my body get irritated. I can't use fragranced shower gels, soaps, or body lotions either, only non-fragranced products.
So, since I spend the majority of my time indoors, I have lots of spare time that I spend with watching Youtube videos. And this is where the idea of this post came from. It's a tag on the video sharing site, the summer favourites.

I only write about nail polishes in this post, because I purchased a fair few ones this past weeks, and I enjoyed wearing them.
This summer I chose intense colours, as I wear basic clothes mostly, for example, a pair of shorts with a plain tank top, and a pair of loafers. I am not a huge jewellery fan either, so I try to make my outfits a bit more interesting by using violent colours on my nails.

Favourite summer nail polishes:

I used this colour a lot in late spring, early summer and as you can see it's almost empty now. It's a beautiful shade of coral, a mixture of orange and pink. I wore this almost every day, and used it for water marbling as well. It's a mini bottle, and the price was reasonable, tho' I don't remember how much was this. The only disadvantage is that it chips very quickly.

 If you live in the East or Middle East Europe it's easy for you to find these brands. In Hungary the CATRICE ones can be purchased in every Rossmann, and the ADEN one in different stores where they are sold at very low prices, or at underpasses.
I really wanted an orange nail varnish but firstly I wasn't brave enough to wear a neon one, so I chose a darker one, but everyone said it was red. When I bought the darker orange, I also picked up the blue one and I'm still in love with that colour. It's simply beautiful. They don't chip very quickly, especially if you wear a base coat underneath the first coat. Plus, it's got a huge brush so it's very easy to work with.
The neon orange is the another one I really love. It's also long lasting, but sometimes, I found it difficult to work with, because the polish has a tiny, round shaped brush.

 Similar ones to the blue nail polish that you can purchase:
 Topshop | Awol
 ASOS | Nails Inc. Jubilee Crystal cap
 ASOS | Nails Inc. SS12
 Models Own | Dream Stream - Kaleidoscope

Neon orange:
Models Own | Beach Party - Hed Kandi
Models Own | Neon Brights

My favourite nail polish:

      Manhattan colour meets fashion nail polish

I don't know how to describe this colour but it's beautiful, maybe a shade of brown and beige, it has teeny tiny golden glitters in it and gives a beautiful shine to your nails. Perfect for autumn.

The worst nail varnish I've ever tried:

      Oriflame Pearly Beige

The joy of ordering beauty products. In the catalogue it looked like a gorgeous champagne colour (that I've been obsessed with recently). My jaw dropped when I saw it for the first time. It looks nothing like the one in the catalogue. It's a very light pink colour with golden shimmers in it. Like I said, it doesn't even similar to the one that I'd expected, and it would not be a problem BUT it's useless. Literally. The brush is tiny and it leaves the nail streaky even if you use a good amount of polish. Don't buy it.

What are your (summer) favourite nail polishes? What's the worst you've ever used?

A successful experience

Let me tell you, I'm not a professional when it comes to cooking.
When I was much younger I wanted to surprise my parents and cook something for them, but suddenly the oil went up on flames and I was home alone, so I poured water on it (which is the worst idea), but I managed to extinguish it. Since then I haven't really done anything in the kitchen. I'm afraid of fire and I just can't bring myself to light the oven and the burners.
However, I'm now 23 so I need to overcome my fear.

I have only made croissants a couple of times, and american pies twice in my life. I also tried to cook some pasta but they weren't too good, unfortunately.

BUT today I found an easy-peasy blackberry cobbler on a website. The website itself is genious. The writer takes gorgeous photos of the meals she makes and has a pretty great sense of humour!
If you like making special, unique, yet delicious and beautiful meals, I suggest you to take a look at her recipes here.

I bought raspberries instead of blackberries (Mum doesn't like blackberries). I think my cobbler looked beautiful and it was delicious as well!
She used self-rising flour, but I didn't have it so I should have added baking powder in it. I forgot to do it. Of course. Plus I added too much fruit so it became a bit juicy.
Never mind, it will be better next time!

You can find the recipe here
