One of my favourite celebrations of year is fast-approaching and with that, I couldn't help having a little splurge on the Lush website.  I absolutely love Valentine's Day; I love all of the red & pink shades in the shops, the flowers, the iced cookies/donuts/cupcakes, the novelty cards, the slushy romantic films (another excuse to crack out The Holiday and Love Actually after Christmas has been and gone) and cute heart-shaped homewares.  Of course, in addition, I love a good Lush bath.

Lush has now released their Valentine's Day range, and although some of the products are more aimed at gift-giving, I just had to get my hands on a few bits as a treat to myself.  And I'm pretty certain they will make for a great Instagrammable bath.  C'mon, I'm not the only person who thinks this when picking out their bath bombs.

So a little while ago, I put out a tweet that I was desperately trying to resist splurging and buying this little beauty, but things happened, it was NYE and I was online shopping with a glass of Rose in hand, and here we are.  My greatly-loved Mary-Lou Manizer highlighter by The Balm had hit pan so long ago, and I had been using the very last bits of it for some time.

I have seen lots of bloggers raving about the Becca Shimmering Skin Perfector (I'm now abbreviating this to SSP as it's pretty wordy) and I also saw it featured in many videos and blog posts by Alix of I Covet Thee.  I'm naturally very pale-skinned and so I went for 'Champagne Pop', having seen this colour worn on Alix in her videos.  I also decided to go for the pressed formula as I prefer my highlighters in a powder form and find them far easier to gently sweep across my face.

As much as I hate to admit it, Christmas is now over, but I couldn't let it pass without posting my 'What I got for Christmas' feature.  In fact, this post is going up as our Christmas tree and decorations are coming down, boo.  I absolutely love reading these types of posts, and it gives me present ideas for upcoming birthdays.  Let's face it, I think we're all pretty nosey too.

Too Faced 'Love' Palette

First thing's first, Happy New Year to all of you! I hope that you all had a wonderful Christmas and New Year's Eve too, whatever you got up to.  I had a rather relaxed period of festivities this year and have finally managed to nurse my cold away (I'm much more of a duvet and Netflix girl these days anyway, who needs a hangover?).
And now, what better way to start the year than with a blog post, particularly when it features an item that makes me as excited as this one does.

I had been lusting over the Too Faced Love palette for so long but couldn't find it available anywhere in the UK until around Christmas time, when I spotted it on the Debenhams website.  Before this, I just could not justify forking out £14.00 for postage from the US.  I was very kindly given this palette by my boyfriend and I had all of the heart-eye emojis happening when I opened this.
