Recently I visited the Lush flagship store on Oxford street with my best friend Jemma who is also a ‘lushie ‘ our trips to lush Oxford street are a whole lot of excitement and friendship bonding time. it’s been a while since I’ve posted ( almost a year ) so I thought it was due to post a blog on some recent purchases from the store!
Although I visited a day after Valentines day there was still a plentiful amount of valentines day products available to purchase including the famous bath bomb ” Roller ” upon entering we were greeted by the always lovely and helpful staff who were demoing the comforter bath bomb in the demonstration sinks.
We went upstairs to see the bath bombs and noticed that all of the oxford street products had been put into an ‘ exclusives section’ this was soo helpful as I only wanted to buy exclusives products.
Valentines product display
When we noticed that Metamorphosis was in store we were shocked and jumping for joy as we didn’t know that this has been released in the flagship store. Obviously when we saw Roller was in stock almost 1/4 of the stock went into our basket.

Kinky boots has been my favourite show since I first saw it in its previews in London. The feeling of joy and pride is like no other. I’ve seen many musicals as a musical fanatic and this is the Singular musical that makes me feel so happy to be a part of a strong community and witness the stellar cast strut their stuff.
All good things must change however- I write this blog two days after Matt Henry’s departure as Lola Paul Ayres playing Harry both who have been there since the beginning on the Kinky boots UK journey.
Other cast members leaving include, Ben Sell , Elena Skye ,Jason Winter,Emma Crossley, and Phil Town.
I was so lucky to be able to win Front row lottery tickets from Today Tix ( an app where you can purchase tickets or enter a lottery for front row tickets for shows such as kinky boots and dream girls or rush tickets) for the “muck up matinee ”
Fate had bought me to this moment as I was in London for London pride parade and I thought I would chance entering the lottery and luck would have that I won!
It was an emotional performance and I really felt like the crowd wanted to honour the cast that were leaving that day.
After the show I was able to meet some of the angels from the show Adam Lake and George Grayson. I felt so grateful to be able to personally thank them both for their special performances. .
Simon Anthony Rhoden has sparkly Red boots to fill following his predecessor Matt Henry. I am excited to begin a new journey with the new cast members!
Love and light
A month ago I went for my first ever float at the floating point Pangbourne. I was excited but nervous at the same time as I wasn’t sure what to expect. The lovely Tina and Micheal talked me through the process and how best to benefit from the float. Which was for the float pod lid to be closed and complete darkness
The experience was very relaxing after you get use to the sensation of zero gravity and just floating.
It’s important to have a clear mind when floating as having a busy mind can be difficult to switch off. Floating is beneficial for anyone from people with muscular injuries or just needing time to relax there are so many benefits that come with floating.
I can’t wait to book my second float when the term finishes!
It’s Friday April 21st 2017 1pm the doors to the new lush Reading are opened. Greeted by friendly cheers and claps from the staff members- making their customers feel valued and appreciated during their shopping experience.
Lush reading is not just a store they are a family. Anyone who visited the smaller reading store will know how small the store was and will feel so relieved that there is a big and better store!
Everyone who works at lush really up hold the ‘lush life values’ and show this in many ways as possible. The staff as lush Reading always go above and beyond what is expected of a retail worker. When I asked one of the workers what makes you so want to achieve so much there responce was ” it’s because I’m passionate. I’m passionate about excellent customer service and passionate about the company. I love my job” in a nut shell this comment really shows the determination the staff have to provide unique and memorable experiences to their customers.
The new and sparkly store has been designed so well by the interior designers and visual merchandisers. The new airy and spacious store provides lots of room for instore demonstrations and allows for customers to get a more hands on experience.
The new demo sinks are a favourite of mine providing a more realistic show of the bath product.
The store is sectioned into areas one being Skin care – this was my favourite part of the store as there is now the opportunity to have a sit down skin care consultation.
I was lucky enough to spend a good twenty minutes with a Staff member who worked at lush oxford street and was visiting especially for the store opening. She went through each product used and explained the benefits and ingredients inside.
Next I went over to the hair lab and was given a small hair treatment/styling by the lovely Shaun. He showed me how to get a straight hair style using lush hair products. This part of the experience was really relaxing
Overall I really enjoyed the whole experience of the Lush Reading Opening and am already planning my next visit !

This week I will be reviewing two kitchen products the first one will be Luverly bath ballistic .
The scent presents a very strong aroma of floralness from the Ylang Ylang oil and jasmine absolute.first of all when Smelling this I could smell a old fashion talc powder.
The bomb is quite large in size but does not weigh anymore than a regular bath bomb . A pastel pink in colour with rosebuds that float in the water . A very fast fizz the bomb does not produce a spectacle in the bath but instead a simple flower bud bath with a light pink shade .
I would rate this product a three out of five . I liked the scent but would have liked the scent to last longer in the bath . Overall this is a luverly bath bomb if you like heady floral scents
Pink custard shower jelly ? How can there be a jelly like custard two very different consistency ? Tubby custard ? Real custard ?
These were some questions I had when the release of pink custard was first rumoured. I hope this blog clears up a few of these questions in the form of a Review
Wibbly wobbly Custard or jelly ?
Some people have described this as Twilight shower Jellys younger cousin. Personally I think this is incorrect more so a shower Jelly of the popular bath bomb ‘Think Pink ‘ with notes of lavender , tonka , and neroli to lift the spirits through the winter months . On the contrast ingredients such as golden syrup and coconut milk are present which give the product a sweet smell .
Personally I really like this products however I would recommend to those who want to purchase is to smell the product in the demo bowls it smells much different with contact of water .
Metamorphosis bath bomb
This product was first revealed at the Lush Showcase back in September at the Tobacco docks as an exclusive limited edition bath bomb only available to those who attended the showcase.
The bath bomb has recently been released as an Oxford street exclusive. The bomb outer shell is metallic grey in colour and streams grey almost immediately when in contact with the water seconds after colours of yellow , pink and green are revealed leaving the bath water a lighter shade of grey.
With ingredients black pepper , myrrh and cinnamon it creates a smoky’musky scent . Sharing a similar scent to the ever popular Lord of Misrule but being described as Lord Misrules ‘Sexy sister ‘
The scent stayed on my skin for at least two hours after I got out the bath. I found my skin was very soft even though there are not any conditioning or mosturising properties in the bath bomb .
Pricing at £3.95
