Finally living in a place where Lush is on your doorstop is both fantastic and dangerous all at once.

I had a wonderful afternoon yesterday with my lovely bestie Charlee, and we felt that a Lush splurge was in order. Plenty of time was spent deliberating, but I finally opted for the above. I normally only get bath goodies, but decided on some raved-about hair products too in the Big Sea Salt Shampoo and No Drought Dry Shampoo. I'm forever on a quest to discover big hair products, so these two should do the job perfectly.

Bath bombs, of course, made their way into my basket too. I opted for a firm favourite of mine - Blackberry - along with two new ones in Rose Queen and Lord of Misrule, which is a discontinued Christmas creation. 

Are there any Lush products you particularly recommend?

I have so much to do and so much on my mind, that I've gone a tad crazy. 

Most of this evening has been manic, like many others from the past couple of weeks, but I made sure to have a long soak and enjoy some of my favourite stress busters: say hello to a, erm, big red candle, Radox Stress Relief bubble bath, the Lush comforter, a soppy novel, and a glass of Sauvignon Blanc. Bliss.

This little one is a constant source of happiness, too, so if it all gets a bit much, I have a much-needed kitty cuddle...

grey tee: H&M
high-waisted denim shorts: New Look
long cream cardi: Forever 21
cross stitch pendant: Urban Outfitters sale (old)
silver bracelet: a gift from Daniel's mum
brown ankle boots: Topshop sale (old)

I love finding clothes and accessories you forgot you had. These boots practically stumbled out of my shoe storage yesterday, begging to be worn, and the denim shorts haven't seen the light of day in months, and I can't quite work out why.

It's inspired me to make the most of my wardrobe, instead of moaning about not owning enough clothes. Though a carefree shopping trip wouldn't go amiss, of course.

I'm experiencing a very productive weekend - how's yours going?
