Following my recent blog post all about my addiction to Lush Cosmetics which you can read here. I thought I'd follow up with reviews on each item and so I will begin with one of my all time favourite Lush bath bombs, the Honey Bee. Every time I visit Lush the Honey Bee bath bomb is the very first item I place in the cute wicker basket provided. I can not resist the sweet honey scent and amazing properties of this bath bomb.
Honey Bee bath bomb is described by Lush as 'Sweet, soothing and cleansing'. I totally agree with the statement made by Lush however I would also describe it as indulging and yummy! Honey Bee onced placed in the bath immediately fizzes up and creates a lemon yellow burst of colour and a white milky foam. The bath water becomes silky and creamy to touch.
Honey Bee is made up of 13 natural ingredients, the six stand out ingredients include;
Rhassould Mud - Cleanses and removes grease from the hair and body. It can be found in the mountains in Morocco and makes up the grey portion of the Honey Bee bath bomb.
Honey- Is a natural antiseptic and encourages the body to retain moisture, it also smells Delicious!
Sweet Wild Orange Oil- Smells absolutely mouthwatering and according to Lush it contains antiseptic and toning qualities and the scent can also lift your mood.
Bergamot Oil- Is uplifting and aromatic and it is believed that adding Bergamot oil to your washing and cleansing routine can treat disorders such as Seasonal Affective Disorder (SAD) which I am a victim of come the rainy seasons!
Gardenia Oil- Lush use Gardenia Oil to colour their products naturally, however it is believed that Gardenia Oil to treat UTI's, headaches and tension.
Lush have listings on their website for every single ingredient used in their products, so if there is anything you are unsure of in any of their products, it is simple and easy to look them up. The information Lush provide is super informative and interesting.
Honey Bee is honestly one of my favourite bath bombs from Lush and never fails to impress me, time and time again! You can purchase Honey Bee for £3.25 online at Lush Cosmetics or in your local Lush store!

I have recently been having a major sort out ready for when I move house later this week and I have realised that come Winter or Summer my wardrobe usually consists of black, white and grey attire, I do own the odd colourful clothing item however it is very rare that I add these to my daily outfits. I do often add the odd splash of colour through the use of handbags, my mint green converse or one of my many sparkly gemmed necklaces. As much as I am a sucker for anything in a grey marl fabric, to my surprise I am currently loving loudly printed items. After scouring many a clothing store online I came across an eclectic mix of printed clothing items on Miss Selfridge. Here are my top 8 printed items from Miss Selfridge, I can't wait to go out and purchase a few of these must haves!!
I've got a sneaky feeling that I am now officially a Lush Cosmetics addict. I have of course secretly known this for quite some time now, however I have tried my best to not admit this, for my bank balance sake and my own! I often come up with excuses for my extreme shopping sprees at Lush. I can now admit that I do not need to justify the ludicrous amounts of my hard earned pennies that I spend on Lush products.
I shop there frequently and excessively, simply because Lush Cosmetics are the best brand for a beautifully hand made bath bomb, a dreamy bath melt or a sumptuous hair mask! Admitting to this has lifted a huge weight off my shoulders and I will never experience the feeling of guilt after a long and tricky day at Lush, deciding which of the 10 bath bombs in my basket that I actually really do need.
On my most recent trip to Lush I spent £94.55 (I wasn't lying when I said it was excessive).
A few of the products I purchased I class as treats and a few are absolute essentials, I would even go as far as saying that they are a few of my holy grail items. I do not smoke and I very rarely drink, so spending this much money at Lush does not seem too much to me once every few months, there I go justifying myself again, oooops!
Even though I spent a total of £94.55 on 13 products, you can pop to your local Lush Store or shop Lush Online and pick up a treat for as little as £1.00, however I dare you to visit Lush and spend less than £10. With the deliciously tempting scents, the gorgeously displayed products lying around and the ever so helpful and charming staff members on hand ready to advise you, it's nearly impossible to leave empty handed!
I will be reviewing each product that I purchased in my next few posts, so stay tuned for them.
I warned you, it is officially a love affair that I am experiencing with ZARA Home. I can not get enough of their beautifully selected and eclectic mix of furniture and home accessories. I believe that there is an item on their website for every ones taste. I personally have become the ultimate ZARA Home hoarder since the ZARA Home website was launched. You can shop it all here online.
Here are my favourite cushion, blanket and home accessory pieces.
Have you purchased anything from ZARA Home, show me!?
