LUSH DIY: Mod-Podge Box

Is the rainy Spring weather getting you down? Are you tired of sitting around watching Netflix and eating ice cream? Well… here is a great solution for LUSHies out there: a LUSH craft! Over the past few months I have been working onĀ an awesome LUSH mod-podge box that I want to share!

First, I needed to cut out a ton of LUSH pictures for my mod-podge. I decided to go with the Christmas LUSH Times and the Fall 2013 LUSH Times. After a few days of cutting up the newspaper catalogs, I was left with all of these pictures:

That is a lot of LUSH pictures right…I wanted to cut out everything from the LUSH catalogs that was either a product I have used or pictures that made me smile (aka – everything in the LUSH catalog)! After I had everything cut out, I searched my room for a box that I was not to crazy about! P.S. – you can use basically any box.. like a shoe box, packaging box, etc. Here is the box I picked:

So from there I mod-podged the box! I did not do the insides because that would be impractical if I wanted to store stuff in the box (which I do). So I started with the white bottom and did the edges and bottom. I then let that piece dry and moved to the top lid where I covered the top and the edges. It took a long time to dry… and since I am not a mod-podge pro, I was left with a few bumps. But overall, I think the box turned out great! Here is the top and bottom with all of the edges:

Oh wow… that was a lot of pictures! Sorry y’all for all of the scrolling! So that box turned out pretty well! What do you think?! Share in the comments! Also, what do you think I store in this box? To find out, you will have to be on the lookout for my second phase of the LUSH DIY box!

 

LUSH Bath Product Storage + Bubble Bar Reviews

Hello all! It is a gloomy day here in New York… I am excited though because I will be going to Houston, TX for a week on Saturday! I am excited to be in the 70 degree weather with unlimited sunshine! Today, I wanted to show y’all how I store my LUSH bath products and do two reviews over some of my latest bubble bar purchases. Here is my bath box:

I got this container from Target. I like how it is sealed so the products can stay fresh. I also normally just leave them in their normal LUSH bags. But, I do put the large bubble bars like the Comforter in a plastic bag. I am surprised at how much can fit in this container… I think I use bath products so much since I take baths about every other day! I really love this set up and the box fits perfectly on a shelf in my bathroom. How do you organize your bath products?

For the first bubble bar review, I want to talk about A French Kiss:

This is actually a half of this bubble bar! I like to split this one up and use it in my baths to add a bit of lavender. Yes, LAVENDER! That is what this LUSH product smells like! Lavender goodness. The ingredients in this product are – rosemary oil, cream of tartar, extra virgin coconut oil, and of course, lavender oil! This bath bomb also creates lots of bubbles! I would suggest this product for anyone who loves to take baths in the evening or someone who takes baths for relaxation purposes.

The next bubble bar I have to review is the Creamy Candy Bubble Bar:

This is a really fun bubble bar because it is super sweet! Honestly, it smells like candy! I really enjoy taking a bath with this bubble bar when I need an uplifting! The products in this bubble bar that make it super sweet are – vanilla absolute, cream of tartar, almond oil and a cute, different colored candy flower on top! I suggest this bath for anyone who loves sweet aromas and also loves to relax in bubbles!

Have you tried any of these bubble bars yet?! Both of these are available year round in LUSH stores and online!
