Hi everyone!  Today I will be reviewing a gift box my niece got me from LUSH.  I always wanted to give LUSH a try but never did because I have such sensitive skin and was just too scared to try them.  Not to mention there isn't a store near me, otherwise I would have tried them since their stores can basically make a sample for you out of almost any of their items, which I think is pretty great.  I mean who doesn't love samples!  LUSH offers great handmade items, and if you have not had a chance to check out their website I really recommend doing so, they have a great story.  Not only are they cruelty free but they are also fighting against animal testing which I think is just fabulous!  They also give back with a hand a body lotion called charity pot where 100% of the purchase price goes towards supporting humanitarian, environmental and animal rights causes locally and around the world.  Needless to say I will be purchasing from them again.  I love companies that are natural, cruelty free, and give back.  We need more companies like them.  Not all of the items that came in my gift box are on their website since it was a seasonal gift so I will just review the items that I did find on their website. 
One of the items was a soap bar that smelled amazing, I seriously wanted to eat it!!!!!!!  It was very smooth and moisturizing and most importantly it didn't irritate my skin, which is a bonus because almost everything irritates my skin.  This soap lathered up very well and I was able to use it all over my skin, neck to toes!  The scent wasn't too strong and didn't linger on my skin, but my bathroom really smelled nice after.  I tend to get headaches if a product scent is too strong and non of my LUSH products caused me a headache, they were all a great.  Here is a link to the soap
The second item was a bubble bar which I actually just used this past weekend.  Like all the LUSH products this bubble bar smelled so good, my whole box actually made my bedroom smell like a fairy garden.  I would buy this box again just to have it in my bedroom.  The bubble bar made so many bubbles, at first it crumbled up pretty fast once I put it under running water and I didn't think there was going to be a lot of bubbles but I was completely wrong, it was bubble central!  The soak was great and my skin was very nice and moisturized after wards.  Once again no skin irritations, and no headaches!
The last item I will review is their lip scrub.  Can I just say this smelled great and was delicious, how I have managed not to eat it all is beyond me.  All you do is dip your finger in and grab some of this great tasting scrub and rub it on your lips.  After wards your lips with be super smooth, moisturized, pretty darn yummy and totally kissable!
Well I hope these reviews will help you decided if you want to give LUSH products a try.  If you live in an area where there is a LUSH store near you I HIGHLY recommend visiting them and getting some samples, you wont be disappointed!

BLACK FAUX SUEDE BOOTS FROM AEROSOLES

Hello again! So I found the most comfy faux suede boots that use to cost 120.00 and now they are on 39.99 at http://www.aerosoles.com/eng/product/wonderling/wonderlin

I wear Dr.Scholes cushiony soles so instead of buying my usual 7.5 size I bought these in size 8. I love them so far! They are comfortable and look great with dresses or skinny pants and are great for snow and cold weather because they are not slippery at all! If you don't like wearing soles get your usual size in boots. These boots do have a little bit of cushion at the soles, but I always need extra cushion at the ball of my feet so I always end up wearing cushiony soles.

Here are some pics of the boots. I got them in black, but they do have other colors.

More Bra Reviews!

Hello everyone! I got two T-Shirt bras from Parfait by Affinitas in light nude and in black.They give you a good lift and are pretty seamless. However it is good to just make sure you read the reviews about sizing. For example, someone mentioned in the reviews that Parfait by Affinitas in the Jeanie Plunge Tshirt bras, the cups run larger than Panache Tshirt Bras and a band size smaller. So for example, if you buy a 28E in Panache Tshirt Cleo bras, I suggest getting a 30D in the Parfait by Affinitas Jeanie plunge T-shirt bra.  I sized down a cup size in the Parfait by Affinitas bra and bought a 30 band size since they start at 30 not 28 but run smaller in the band than Panache, I got a 30D in Parfait by Affinitas, instead of my usual size 28E. and it fits the same as my Panache in 28E. Here are pictures of the bras: In UK cup sizes a 28DD is the same as 30D in cup sizes but a band size smaller, and 28E is the same as 30DD in cup sizes but a band size smaller.

Signature Minerals makeup

Hello everyone! Today I want to tell you about Signature Minerals: http://www.signatureminerals.com/
Their make up has great prices and they give you free samples! They give you 6 little jars so if you don't know your skin tone you can pick a few and try them out! Once you know your color you can order it. The two day shipping is 7 dollars which is not bad! I mean for 6 free tiny jars of make up which equals to like two regular jars of make up and pay 5 or 7 bucks for shipping is a great deal. Their biggest jar is a little bigger than the Bare Minerals jar and it is only $14.95 instead of $28 bucks like Bare Minerals. Signature Minerals does not test on animals and it is perfect for sensitive skin that is prone to breakouts. My favorite Signature Mineral make up is their translucent powder, bronzer, powder foundation, and blush. I have not tried their eye shadows yet since I like pressed powder eye shadow not loose because it is easier to put on. I tend to get loose powder eye shadow under my under eye circles and it is hard to remove the eye shadow stains from under my eyes.
I love their powder foundation because when it is on my face it does not look caked on and it looks like I am not wearing any powdered foundation. It goes on thin and smooth and covers tiny blemishes at the same time! I highly recommend Signature Minerals!
