There's nothing better than coming home after a long day at the office and running yourself a bubble bath. I was recently sent some products from the Lush Cosmetics Halloween Collection and I couldn't wait to start using them. I am a huge lover of all things Lush; from their face masks to their body lotions, it is hard for me to leave the store without a couple of "necessary" purchases. The product I will be reviewing today is the Sparkly Pumpkin Bubble Bar, which not only smells good and creates a nice frothy bubble bath but also makes the water sparkle without leaving sparkles on your skin. Made with Lime, Grapefruit, and Juniperberry Oils, Cinnamon Sticks, and Gold Glimmer Lustre Golden Glitter amongst other ingredients. The bar honestly left my skin feeling smoother and more hydrated than before. During my bath the water almost felt creamy and lotion like. It was like no other bath product I have used and to know that it was handmade with fresh ingredients just added to the experience.
1) Unwrap the Sparkly Pumpkin Bubble Bar from the packaging and start running your bath. Try not to expose the bar to too many different surfaces, as the glitter rubs off extremely easily. As you can see I placed it on the Lush packaging until I was ready to use it. 2) Put the Bubble Bar under the running water and allow it to crumble into the water. You can use your hands to speed this process up or let the pressure of the running water take care of it.
3) As the bar is dissolving you'll notice the water starting to get orangey, start swishing around the water to mix the bubbles throughout. Also, any crumbles that fell into the tub and didn't completely dissolve can be broken down more with your hands. 4) Once you have filled up the tub enough and you have tested the water temperature, de-robe and enjoy. It is time to relax and enjoy the subtle scents of the bar.

Nail Polish is one of those products that I simply cannot resist. Like lipstick, you can never have TOO MANY colours, and one is never like the other. As my collection keeps on growing and growing I had to find more and more space and storage solutions. Currently I am using this hanging jewellery storage, that has clear plastic slots making it easy to browse and find whatever colour I am looking to. However, with that being full I have been having to use my vanity drawer to house whatever new polishes I buy, which is causing clutter and not to mention the amount of space it is taking up.
After searching for the perfect storage solution I think I have FINALLY found something that is not only a space saver but extremely cute. Introducing The Color Clutch a nail polish storage/display box that holds 18 polishes of any brand. The foam technology forms to any brand's bottle shape whether big or small. Also, like my hanging jewellery storage, the lid of the box is clear to make choosing your polish quick and simple, as long as you aren't too indecisive with what colour you want. The best part though is that it only takes up 2.5 inches of space, whether you keep it hidden in your vanity drawer or put it out on display on a shelf. Visit their website to learn more about Color Clutch and also be able to purchase your very own.
