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???

LUSH Mother’s Day Haul + Gift Ideas

The Mother’s Day collection from LUSH Cosmetics was not a surprise because it debuted a month ago in the UK. Therefore, I knew what products were going to be on my wish list!

  • Yummy Mummy Shower Gel – a lavender shade that smells even better! I have been waiting to try the Yummy Yummy Yummy Shower Gel for ages… this is the closest to it! Hints of berries and silver luster illuminate your skin, making it a great spring shower essential!
  • Yummy Mummy Body Conditioner – a complimentary hydro-boost to its twin! With the same aroma of the shower gel, this product is a fruity moisturizer for extra hydration. I cannot wait to try this duo! Have you?
  • Secret Garden Bath Bomb – A repeat from last year’s collection! This bath is beautiful! One of my favorite floral bath products because it is not too strong and turns your bath a foamy sea green.
  • Rose Bubble Bar – Another repeat from last year! LUSH must think Mother’s love roses… I am not complaining because I sure love them! This bubble bar is a beautiful mixture of citrus and rose to calm and relax the skin.
  • Rose Bombshell Bath Bomb – A new invention from LUSH with red rose petals and soy milk – a new level of bath bombs! I am excited to try this luxurious bath… I am sure my mom is even more excited!
  • Mother Superior Bubble Bar – The odd looking bubble bar! I have no idea why this product looks so weird… I guess it has something to do with an English tradition? Anyways, I decided to get Mother Superior because the reviews were excellent… we will see! 

MOTHER’S DAY GIFT IDEAS

What to get for Mother’s Day? My mom sure loves flowers, books, FOOD, natural beauty, and Lilly Pulitzer! Here are some of my picks for vibrant Mother’s:

  • Lilly Pulitzer – Anything from Lilly is a phenomenal gift for Mother’s who adore bright colors and summer! My mom particularly likes the Lilly skirts and tops. P.S. – Did you see my #LillyforTarget post?
  • Dior Rosy Glow Blush – One of my favorite blushes! This blush matches most skin tones and creates a natural, youthful rosy flush! Exactly what every women needs to achieve a summer glow!
  • Alex and Ani – Have you seen the new and romantic collection of bracelets?? My mom would adore the Persephone Collection with all of the pastel shades and flower outlines. She also likes the Crystal earrings – the perfect sparkle to pair with a Lilly!
