New Favorite LUSHie + City!

I went to Washington D.C. for the first time! I’ve been to almost every major city in the U.S. except for D.C. and fell in LOVE! The cherry blossoms were starting to bloom, the monuments were gorgeous, and the tourists were definitely coming out from hibernation! I even got to see Bill Belichick, the Patriots coach, and Obama’s barricade. Even though it was a very short trip, it completely changed my life for the better! As a college student, I appreciated the monuments, museums, and historical architecture.

My friends and I went to Georgetown on our last day for a bite to eat and shop! We went to Vineyard Vines for the Kentucky Derby party, Madewell to look at the latest collection, and Alex and Ani for some positive motivation! We were walking to get cupcakes from Baked and Wired (which was absolutely AMAZING) and I smelled LUSH… I did not see the store, but I definitely smelled it! We then looked back and saw it hidden in the alleyway of 8th Street.

The sales lady, Leslie, was an absolute sweetheart – very welcoming and super bubbly! She was the first LUSH employee to help me pick out products for my irritated skin on my arms (there is some medical name for it). I ended up going with the Buffy, Aqua Mirabilis, and an Oatfix mask! Plus, she was actually headed to London for the first time in May, like me! We want to meet up and experience the new LUSH Oxford St. store together!

Have you been to the Georgetown LUSH and have met Leslie? What products do you use for irritated, dry skin???

A Woodlands, TX LUSH Haul

How was everyones Easter?! I wanted to start off the week with a haul!!! This has been a long awaited post since I went to this store in March. I was visiting all of my friends and boyfriend in Houston for Spring Break! A LUSH just opened in the past year in Market Street which is in The Woodlands (one of the many suburbs of Houston). I went with my friend Allie to explore this new store!

Ever since I started this blog, my objective has been to review every LUSH product that is around yearly (everything that you can get in the store). I have tried almost all of the products… but some I have not! So this haul consists of repurchases and new purchases! I will specify below:

 

  • Turkish Delight Shower Smoothie: this is actually a new purchase for me. I have always wanted to try this product but I end of giving up when I see the price ($34.95). I did not do that this time though! I just could not pass up the rose smell and my addiction for Shower Smoothies from LUSH has grown significantly!
  • Lip Service Lip Balm: this is also a new purchase. I recently finished my Honey Trap lip balm and needed another balm for my desk! I decided to go with this one since it is the LUSH original lip product!
  • Karma Bubble Bar: this is also a new purchase. Over my time of blogging about LUSH, I have become more and more obsessed with the Karma aroma. They make Karma lotion, soap, perfume, and this bubble bar!
  • Sex Bomb Bath Bomb: this is a repurchase, of course! I decided to get this bath bomb again since I have not yet reviewed it and have not taken a bath with this product in a long time!
  • Mask of Magnaminty Face Mask: this is also a repurchase. My first Mask of Magnaminty was the larger pot (which took me quite a while to use up). One bummer about this product is that it only lasts about three months. So this time, I decided to go for the smaller pot! This is a classic face mask!
  • Avobath Bath Bomb: this is actually a new purchase. I have heard so much about this bath bomb from other LUSH bloggers. So, I decided it was time for me to try it and review!
  • You Snap The Whip Body Butter: this is a repurchase. I am in LOVE with this LUSH body butter. It smells exactly like the Sweetie Pie shower jelly and exfoliates very well. I will be reviewing this product ASAP!
  • Vanilla Delite Body Lotion: this is a new purchase. I heard a lot about this body lotion over the holidays. So, I decided I should check it out! I also have become more and more obsessed with body lotions from LUSH because they work wonders for your skin!
  • Cynthia Sylvia Stout Shampoo: this is a new purchase. I have tried every other LUSH liquid shampoo and this was the only one left! I like it so far… I have been using it quite much in the shower! I really enjoy getting LUSH products in the smallest size so I can try a bunch at once! It is perfect for product reviews!

This was a pretty fantastic haul if you ask me! I really enjoyed meeting that sales associates in this store. They were very very sweet! Also on this shopping excursion, I stopped in one of my favorite clothing stores called Madewell. I learned in this store that LUSH and Madewell were partnering up for an evening to party! I wish I could have attended that night! Check out the Facebook post I found about this event:
