Self Care Saturday: Groovy Kind of Love by Lush

Groovy Kind of Love by Lush

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.

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!

Self Care Saturday: Strawberries and Cream by Lush

Strawberries and Cream by Lush

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.

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.

Self Care Saturday: More Tea and Sympathy by Lush

More Tea and Sympathy by Lush

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!

Self Care Saturday: Goddess by Lush

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?

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.

Self Care Saturday: Polyamorous by Lush

New Year, new blog feature! I’ve decided to try and write one Self Care Orientated post a month. Most of the time this will mean a post about a fancy bath bomb but others may include reviews or discussions on other things that help me deal with stress.

I think Self Care is important and I hope you enjoy the new feature ❤

Polyamorous by Lush

A little extra lovin’ goes a long way. Pop this melting amulet of amour into your bath and feel waves of skin-softening Fair Trade organic cocoa and organic shea butter cherish your skin.


Plumes of soft pink magic will unfurl across the water, as brightening Brazilian orange oil, alluring violet leaf absolute and grounding sandalwood notes put you in the mood.

Oh my goodness, Polyamorous by Lush was beautiful. I don’t usually enjoy bath oils or melts but this was absolutely amazing. Watching as Polyamorous melted was an enjoyable experience, seeing the pink hearts slowly dissolve and tinge the water was really lovely.

Quick Picks: Xmas Presents!

QUICK Picks

Prepare yourself for an incredibly self indulgent post about all the things I want for Xmas!

Candy Mountain Yule Log

by Lush

Quick  run down: Every year I try and buy a few of these limited release bubble bars. The bars smell amazing and are so easy to use. You simply crumble them under a running tap and bam – you have a bubble bath.

It appears that this year instead of being little pyramids, Lush has made them into a bit more manageable shape. I usually try and grab as many as I can in the online boxing day sales but I never turn them down as a present!

Quick reasons why I love it:

  • The Smell: They are amazing – a soft and sweet vanilla.
  • The Luxury: Bubble baths are a large part of my self care routine and these beauties make them all the more luxurious.

Tropico 6

by Kalypso

Quick run down: I have sunk so many hours into the Tropico games. Tropico 6 is a simulation game where you play as El Presidente, a ‘legally’ elected leader of a Caribbean/Cubanesque island.

Pretty much this is Sims City but on a island with a catchy soundtrack.

Quick reasons why I love it:

  • The Soundtrack: the Latin jazz sounds that play throughout each of the Tropico games.
  • The Humour: the humour of the game is really tongue in check. The reoccurring characters of the game are also really fun.

Lunar Chronicles

The Lunar Chronicles Box-set

by Melissa Meyer

Quick run down: Okay so stay with me on this one, I own Cinder and Winter. However, I do not have the other books. I also love box sets so…

If you don’t know the series, I would really recommend you check out it out! The books are retellings of classic fairy tale and they are all interconnected and amazing. I tend to recommend the series to young adults at the library and I haven’t had any complaints yet.

Quick reasons why I love the series:

  • The larger story: The five books all interconnect to tell a larger story. I’m just going to let you in on a secret, the ‘Winter‘ book is about ‘Snow White’ and the other characters from the book all join together and there are ‘seven’ of them… Yep details like that make me so happy!
  • The covers: I know a lot of people give Cinder a tough time about the cover – what with the whole weird looking foot in a shoe but I love it and I love them all!.
