As always I am still at work, sometimes working with the public can be quite trying and reopening with strict safety guidelines has been especially trying. Please everyone, if there are entry requirements, don’t argue with the person enforcing them at the door; if they are the ones on the front line they did not have anything to do with making the rules.
So I hope everyone is staying safe and staying sane 😋
Plastic Free July
While I am not going the full slog of removing all of my plastic use, I have made a few changes and am trying to cut down on how much plastic I use. These changes have seen me start to use a shampoo bar which means I have not purchased any new shampoo bottles. I now have a bamboo toothbrush that after I have used it can recycle. I have also started to use a solid moisturiser.
All of these things have been surprising as I am enjoying them so much. The shampoo bar has done amazing things to my hair and I no longer have greasy hair two days after washing!

Things have been a bit crazy this month, what with the pandemic and everything. In this time my work place has shut its doors to the public, if I weren’t holed up in bed, I would be at work doing a lot of busy work and manning the phones. Here are some of the things I have been enjoying while in self-isolation.
Animal Crossing: New Horizons
The newest Animal Crossing game came out on March 20 and I have been in Animal Crossing heaven since then! It hasn’t been the best of times for me as I have the sniffles so have stayed in bed pretty much each day since March 20, however I have had enough time and wits about me to enjoy the game immensely!
I was so incredibly excited for this game that I not only did an Anticipated Arrivals post about it but I also pre-ordered the very expensive Animal Crossing Switch Console… No regrets!

Happy end of February everyone! I’ve decided to step away from the Small Snippet format and try something different for my month wrap up post. Below you’ll see some of my favourites from February from a whole range of different mediums.
So welcome to my favourites of February and enjoy!
The Good Place Final Season
Omgosh you guys! The final season was so perfect and amazing. I was watching this show on the edge of my seat as I had absolutely no idea where the story would go. From season one The Good Place has been such a wild ride! I feel in love with the characters and was constantly surprised by the directions taken by the narrative!
The last episode was a doozy and despite my many emotions, I was so happy to see it through. The Good Place has cemented itself as one of my favourite shows out there!

Cupcake & Dino: General Services
After renewing my Netflix subscription after a hefty amount of time on Stan, the first thing that I watched was the second season of Cupcake & Dino: General Services. I am a big fan of cartoons but this really takes the (cup)cake 😉🧁I love the humour, the characters, the out there storylines but most of all, I love that catchy opening theme song!
If you can, I would really recommenced watching this show! Or at the very least, watch the first episode – you won’t regret it.

For a sweet, sweet bath there is a sweet, sweet treat and in this sweet, sweet bath take a sweet, sweet seat.
Let your troubles mmm…elt away, as skin is softened and soothed by shea butter, almond oil and calamine. And, if its bright yellow and pink sandwich of colours doesn’t bring to mind dolly mixtures, its candy floss scent surely will.Taken from the Lush AU website.
Slowly my opinion of bath oils is changing for the better and it is all thanks to Lush. I first tried one in Polyamorous and Mmmelting Marshmallow Moments is just as mind changing as the first. Lush’s bath oils make my skin so soft, how could you not love that?

Wash away your woes with sweet rose. This richly romantic Turkish rose and lemon love story will have you falling head over heels for bathing all over again. A kiss of conditioning Fair Trade cocoa butter hydrates, while balancing geranium leaves your skin looking blooming beautiful. Taken from the Lush AU website.
Black Rose is intense! The scent of the bath is strong and aromatic with my bathroom smelling of roses for days after using the bath bomb. The bath water is also so amazing to look at – black but with silver glitter shimmering in the among the water.

Fill your bathtub with peace, love and positivity – melting into rings of rainbow colour, Groovy Kind Of Love is built with trippy hippies in mind. Flower children will fall for this combination of rosewood, bergamot and ylang ylang oil, which will lift spirits and leave your skin toned, balanced and refreshed. Taken from the Lush AU website.
Okay so I may chosen this bath bomb solely because it is rainbow. Groovy Kind of Love has the added bonus of not just looking great but it is such a nice experience. The scent of the bath bomb is Rosewood Oil, Bergamot Oil, and Ylang Ylang – which combines to make this smooth and fun smell which was oddly exhilarating.
Oh who am I kidding, Groovy Kind of Love is like bathing in lolly scented water and it is amazing!

What could be better than bathing in a big bath full of strawberries and cream? Use whole, or twist in half to share with a loved one. Fruity strawberry powder freshens and tones, while the creamy filling in this sandwiched bath bomb melts, leaving behind deeply softening water. A touch of black pepper oil gives this bath bomb an edge and brings out its sweet berry scent. Taken from the Lush AU website.
Strawberries and Cream by Lush is such a fun time. The colours of the bath are a nice soothing pink and the scent is so smooth and lovely. Part of Lush’s #WetheBathers promotion which has seen 50(!) new bath bombs be added to their shop, Strawberries and Cream is one that I had to try.

A soothing, cleansing soak is anyone’s cup of tea. Lay back and steep to your heart’s content as an Earl Grey tea bag emerges from the bright pink fizzing teapot that releases a feel-good bergamot and neroli fragrance and a spattering of blue cornflowers. With green tea to clarify and cleanse the skin, there’s plenty of reason to treat yourself or a loved one to a much-deserved cuppa. Taken from the Lush AU website.
Okay so I just want to start off by saying that this bath bomb is a teapot. With an actual teabag inside 😲Not only is it themed to the max with a lovely scent but after the bath bomb has dissolved, you continue to steep because it has an Early Grey teabag inside 🥰
Be still my beating heart!

Goddess by Lush
Heavenly scent, jasmine absolute seduces you into lilac and silver waters, while the darkness of oudh and the richness of sandalwood keep you there, lingering a little longer. Precious ingredients for a true goddess, lifting your mind to a higher plane.
As each layer unfolds and sodium bicarbonate sends colours swirling, something divine happens to your body. Feel your muscles warming, feel your blood pumping, feel your strength.
Legend says Cleopatra bathed in milk, but a true goddess bathes in butters. Fair Trade Colombian cocoa butter and shea butter melt into creamy waters, then a skin-softening slick of liquid gold argan oil, a holy trinity of moisturisation. Behind the shea and argan, are stories of empowered women’s groups in Ghana and Morocco. Not age-old legends of celestial beings, but real stories from Planet Earth of building communities and defending the natural world.
Do you believe God is a woman? Taken from the Lush Australia site.
If you only ever buy one Lush bath bomb, make it this one!
Goddess by Lush is such a beautiful and luxurious experience. The water was an amazing and rich purple colour with a surprising depth – Submerging my hand only a tiny bit, I could no longer see my hand beneath the colour and glitter.
