Four Treats For Me

I popped into Manchester on Friday to meet my lovely friend for lunch, as she has just gotten Engaged. So excited to get crafty & do lots of wedding related gossiping, shopping and planning! So whilst I was in the City I did a little shopping. There were so many Christmas displays and offers on, Manchester felt very festive. I didn’t buy any Christmas presents, everything I bought was for myself (terrible). I managed to restrain myself from buying everything & treated myself to four things.

Four Treats

I initially went into LUSH to look at their Christmas releases but I made the mistake of going in on a Friday afternoon during half term and it was beyond busy, I couldn’t get near anything Festive. So I picked up a couple of bath products from the regular range & called it a day in there. I will go back in mid week now the schools are back.

I bought Creamy Candy – this is one of my favourites. Its smells so nice & leaves my skin soft. I also bought Pop in The Bath, I haven’t tried this one before but it smells lovely. So I’m looking forward to using these.

I have wanted to try the Clinique Chubby Sticks since they were released & I missed out on their Christmas Set last year (it sold out so fast) so when I saw this Whole Lotta Candy mini trio for £20 in Boots I had to have them. You get 3 mini chubby sticks in the shades Voluptuous Violet, Pudgy Peony and Two Ton Tomato.

I have a couple of polishes from Sinful Colors and when I’m in Boots I have to buy one. The stand in the Manchester store is always so well stocked and for £1.99 they’re a bargain. I picked a really pretty blue called Love Nails 282. You will need two coats of this & give it time to dry otherwise you’ll get bubbles.

      I don’t ever buy too much from LUSH, I treat myself every so often. The Chubby Sticks are amazing – everything I hoped they’d be x

  15. Christmas Lush range has to be my favourite thing about this time of year…I read through their catalogue several times, so sad! Hope you enjoy your treats x
