There Might Be Coffee – 2016 Review

Now this is something I have never done before because I never thought anything special had ever happened to my blog before for me to warrant writing this type of post. However 2016 was the best my blog has been to date and I am so fucking proud of that.

I also saw that The Mini Mermaid had written something like this so she inspired me to do this too.

From having a look at my stats I discovered that the views of my blog in 2016 more than doubled in comparison to 2015! WOW!

2015:
Views – 18,683
Visitors – 12,608

2016:
Views – 39,951
Visitors – 30,987

Top 5 posts of 2016:

Lush Halloween 2016 – 2,560

Give Me Glow Cosmetics Liquid Lipstick in Bad Gal Review – 2,012

Lancome Juicy Shaker Lip Gloss in Berry In Love Review – 1,866

Lush Intergalactic Bath Bomb Review – 1,649

Lush Christmas 2016 – 1,351

I’m not going to lie when I say I am a tad disappointed that not more of my varied posts weren’t on here… But meh I can’t complain! To be honest I am known for my lip product reviews, as well as Lush reviews as well so these seem apt to be fair.

Since me starting There Might Be Coffee in 2011 my blog has grown and here is how much.

I have written 597 posts.

I have had 91,224 views.

I have had 64,427 visitors.

Finally my best views ever were on the 13th September 2016 with an amazing 597 views on my blog! The post that was live on my blog that day was Big Beauty haul.

So what would I change about my blog in 2017?

I would love to attend more events to be honest! I loved attending all the events that I did in 2016 and it was lovely to meet some amazing bloggers along the way.

I would also love to write more reviews and start doing my look book posts again as I really miss doing those.

To be honest towards the end of 2016 my blog wasn’t as active and posts weren’t being written and published as often as I wanted them to be. Why? Well I work in retail/hospitality and with that comes working all over Christmas and dealing with people getting ready for “the most wonderful time of the year” (didn’t just sing that as I typed it…) so as soon as I came home from work I would be shattered and just want to eat, order presents online, wrap presents, read, play games and chill out.

I have noticed since moving into the house that when I lived at home the first thing I would do other than get changed into my pajamas was turn my laptop on. I don’t do that when I get home from work in my house. I still get changed into my pajamas but more often than not I’ll start doing some housework. My laptop gets put on a back shelf and it’s because I have better things to do now and as boring as I sound, more adult matters.

However I am going to try my hardest in 2017 to keep my blog updated and posts published as often as I can because I genuinely missed writing throughout November and December.

I now have a daily journal I use to write down blog ideas and when I’ll be writing them up etc. I also intend to use a notebook to write blog posts in whenever I don’t get the chance to get on my laptop to type up ideas etc.

What kind of posts would you like me to write in the future? Once a month I might pop a little voting panel up on my Twitter so you can go and vote.

Until next time all take care and I hope you’re having a lovely week so far.

Post Christmas Natter (Plus What I received…)

It’s almost a week since Christmas Day was here and I can’t quite believe how quickly it’s flown by! I had a lovely Christmas even though I was working both Christmas Eve and Boxing Day (WAH FML!) but it’s come and gone now. Plus I have New Years Eve and Day off, woohoo!

So I decided to do a little catch up post about my Christmas and share what lovely gifts I received from Dane, my parents and everyone else. 🙂

Christmas Eve I didn’t finish work until late (6pm to be exact) and due to being tired and lazy we decided to get a takeaway and spend the evening watching movies. One movie we watching in particular was Sausage Party, which came out this year. Not exactly a Christmas movie, but one we both enjoyed watching, although at the end it got very weird and we sat in shock with hands over mouths, awkwardly laughing.

We got an early night as we were both shattered! This being said I had an awful nights sleep. I kept waking up throughout the night as the wind was waking me up. So we both woke up early Christmas Day and popped on a Christmas movie whilst we opened our presents. I spoilt Dane rotten this year and he loved all of his gifts. He spoilt me just as much too and every gift he gave me I loved. We both asked each other what our favourite gifts were out of the bunch. Dane’s was Vol. 1-9 of One Punch Man and mine was a tough one. I’ll show off what gifts he gave me before I tell you which were my favourites… I can’t pick one!

We decided to do stockings this year, as a new tradition and we filled them both full of yummy treats, well Dane filled mine full of Japanese sweets, mostly Kit Kats! My friend Sophi (heyyy!) picked up some of these stockings for us which was lovely of her! She of course got an N for me and a D for Dane.

As you can see Dane bought me LOADS of Kit Kats, Japanese ones to be exact! As well as a few other Japanese treats, which are mostly matcha flavoured… My favourite. 😛 He bought me a little geisha pouch full of different flavoured Kit Kats, which I loved as it looked adorable! It came with a piece of paper inside telling you about all the flavours which I was pleased about, as you never know what you could be trying. For example there is a wasabi flavoured Kit Kat in there!

Onto the main gifts from Dane and I was well and truly spoilt this year… But so was he. 😛 All of my gifts from him were thoughtful and I can’t really say I prefer one to the other, but I will of course say my favourite 3 or something. 😛

One of my favourite gifts from what Dane bought me were these two sleeping Pokemon plushies from the Pokemon Centre in Japan. As you can see he gave me a Pikachu and Jolteon which I love, especially Jolteon’s cute little bum and feet. 😛 I knew I was going to get one of these but I didn’t have a clue which and these were both a lovely surprise to get. They’re now in my Pokemon cabinet in the living room.

Another one of my favourite presents from Dane was these South Park figures from the new game coming out in 2017, The Fracture But Whole. I already have a couple of the figures from the first game (Princess Kenny and Cartman as a wizard) and I love them so much, but not as much as these. I have Butters, Kenny and Cartman all as their super villain and hero alter egos. They’re now in my cupboard and look amazing. It’s a shame they didn’t bring anymore of the characters out, but I guess these three are the main ones.

I keep saying this is my favourite present from Dane even though I knew I was having it, but it’s my new jacket… A Pokemon jacket! This is by a brand I have grown to love since August when I bought my first pieces by her, the brand being Ohayou! Clothing. She’s a designer in Bristol and most of her designs are Pokemon related and anything Japanese and kawaii. As you can see from the pictures it’s a varsity style jacket with an adorable picture of Eevee on the back! I love it and since Christmas Day I’ve pretty much lived in it! I can’t wait to write a post about Ohayou! Clothing in the new year!

Everyone who knows me knows that I LOVE foxes and I think every Christmas we have shared since being together, Dane has always bought me a fox related present. This year he of course had to keep up the tradition and bought me this beautiful tote bag with a fox and wolf on it. I’ve viewed this seller on Etsy before and if you love foxes then you will love her work! He also bought one of her illustrated books about foxes, which I really enjoyed reading in bed on Christmas Day morning.

Yay for manga! I’m in need of some new books to read after finally finishing Nana (and my heart broke!) and of course Dane knew I wanted some new material to read including Nichijou. As of yet I haven’t started to read it but I intend to start very soon. It’s like Azumanga Daioh so it is based around a school and the lives of the students there. I can’t wait to read it!

MORE KIT KATS! I told you he bought me loads! These are sake flavoured and we tried one on Christmas Day. I LOVE them! They’re very strong smelling and tasting of sake, which I thought I would hate but really enjoyed. I would definitely buy these again… But I have a feeling they aren’t cheap.

Finally we have a few little stocking fillers Dane gifted me, one not being in this picture as I forgot to take it! That item is the Bee & Puppycat cooking book. I thought it would be all jokey cooking recipes but they’re actually legit and ones that both the workers of the comic have submitted, as well as fans of the comic book too. Both me and Dane had a flick through it on Christmas Day and have already decided on some recipes that we want to bake and cook very soon.

Speaking of food he also got me a Pikachu sushi mold which I am SO EXCITED to use! I love making Japanese food and the next thing I want to learn how to make is sushi. I’ve already discussed with Dane that we make onigiri (rice ball with fish, chicken, veg inside… Basically like a sandwich to us but with rice instead of bread) with the mold. I can’t wait!

I knew I was getting these for Christmas (even though when it came to opening them I FORGOT ALL ABOUT THEM!) but Dane bought me some Victoria’s Secret body sprays. One is a minty scent and the other more vanilla and sugary. I love things like this and the VS body sprays are the best I’ve ever tried.

The final thing Dane bought me was a new calendar which as you can see is Pusheen.

This was meant to be one of my Christmas presents but Dane gave it to me about a week before Christmas and I love it so much! It’s a little glass bottle with a little soot sprite inside from the film Spirited Away. That’s one of my favourite films so I love anything to do with it. He’s now in my cabinet in the living room.

We spent Christmas at my parents house and then Boxing Day at Dane’s parents. We both had a lovely time at both houses and I wouldn’t change anything! Sadly my mom was working but me and Dane played games and watched movies with my dad and my brother, which was really fun! We practically did the same with Dane’s family too and we had a right laugh. We played Joking Hazard with my family and The Game of Life with Dane’s. We had lots of laughs and giggles!

I’m not showing off all my presents in  this post, mostly just Dane’s to be honest but I thought I would show off my favourite gifts from my family and Dane’s.

This was one of my favourite presents this year and it’s from my parents. It’s a Thomas Sabo charm bracelet with a martini glass charm. She kind of hinting to me getting something like this but I wasn’t 100% sure what it would be. I love it though, so much more than my Pandora bracelet and I’ve already eyed up what other additions I can add to it. I’ve found so far that it’s just so much lighter than Pandora to wear and therefore easier to wear.

My mom bought me and Dane a couple of other things too, some of which are on the way apparently in the post. But one of my other favourite items from her is this giraffe dressing gown (which I have on at the moment!). The hood on it is huge and had a giraffe face on which I think is cute. It’s also a great length too which is ideal as one of my old ones would drag on the ground as I walk up the stairs and trip me up. I’ve pretty much lived in this since Christmas Day!

Like the presents my parents bought me I won’t talk about everything, but more so my favourites. Dane’s parents bought me these lovely pajamas which I knew I was going to get due to asking for them, but they were still a lovely surprise and as soon as we got home Boxing Day I put them on. They’re burgundy with woodland animal print on. Right up my street! They also bought me a Lush gift set (Snow Fairy one!) and some stuff for the house.

Finally we have one of the gifts that Dane’s brother and girlfriend bought for us. They bought us a huge box full of Japanese candy but sadly I never managed to get a picture of it. However I did manage to get a picture of the candle they bought us. It’s a WoodWick candle, a brand we both love just as much as Yankee Candle. This one is in the scent Black Cherry and it’s HUGE! When you burn these it makes a crackling sound like a fire and when we lit this for the first time it was nice to see the flame move over from the right to the left side of the wick. It’s a lovely present, especially for the house.

So those were my presents from Christmas this year. As well as these presents I did of course get more from work friends, my friends, family and more. I just wanted to show some that I had managed to snap pictures of.

I had a lovely Christmas this year even though it did come and go in the blink of an eye! I don’t have a clue when to take my Christmas tree down. Probably tomorrow after work as it’ll soon be 2017 and our tree wont need to be up anymore, sadly. I’ll miss our cute little tree. 😦

What lovely presents did you get for Christmas and did you have a lovely time over the Christmas period? Make sure to let me know in the comments down below.

Until next time, take care all and I hope you’re having a great week so far!

Christmas ’16 Wish List

Ahh Christmas is just 20 something days away and it’ll be here before we know it! I pretty much have most of my Christmas present shopping done now which is great BUT what do I want for Christmas? Let me just add that this list was pretty damn hard to do as this year I found that I didn’t want all that much… I wanted a lot of make up if anything (Jeffree Star, Kat Von D and Korean beauty mostly!) so I didn’t want my list to be full of those things. Check out my wish list to find out what I decided to put on my list to Father Christmas. 😉

  • South Park: The Fractured But Whole The Coon Figurine – £11.99 (link)

If regular and old readers haven’t realised by now how much of a South Park fan both myself and Dane are then what the hell have you NOT been reading? We love South Park and I especially love the video games. I have 100% completed The Stick Of Truth and I’m eagerly awaiting the next game, The Fractured But Whole. I’m currently collecting the figures from the first game and of course I couldn’t NOT collect the ones from the second. Not only that but for Halloween in 2015 me and Dane both dressed as South Park characters, Dane as Mysterion and me as The Coon. So getting this would mean an awful lot to me. Although me and Dane have discussed about getting the bundle of these figures, which you can check out here.

  • Pokemon Pikachu Molded Mug – £15.00 (link)

Dane actually showed me this mug about a month ago when he was looking for some Christmas and birthday present ideas for me and I shrugged it off and said, “Meh we don’t need anymore mugs in the house.” BUT after a lot of thought I changed my mind and said how it would make a lovely edition, due to how unique it is. That and it reminded me of a Pikachu mug I made in art/pottery class well over 10 years ago when I was at school. It was awful but I loved that mug and used it as a pencil pot instead. So it would be lovely to use this in the cold mornings before work.

  • Pokemon Center Mew MokoMoko Plush – £28.99 (link)

Another Pokemon item! This time it’s Mew. I love Mew just as much as I love the Eeveelutions and sadly although my Eevee plushie collection is building up nicely, my Mew one remains small with me only owning one plush… Sad times. I’m hoping to change this next year however and what better way to start that than with this beautiful and soft looking Mew plushie! Of course from the Pokemon Center in Japan. It looks so soft and fluffy but sadly it isn’t cheap and I would have to wonder how big this must be to be at such a high price.

  • ColourPop x Hello Kitty Lippie Stix in shade Let’s Play – $5.00 (link)

Ew I said I wouldn’t add make up to this Christmas wish list but urgh I have to add something! One item won’t hurt, surely??? When I found out that ColourPop were going to have a Hello Kitty collection I went a little bit ape shit but said I wouldn’t buy anything due to the expensive shipping prices. However thanks to sellers on eBay it doesn’t cost as much as it would do to order from over the pond. I really love Let’s Play as it’s a gorgeous cranberry red with pink shimmer throughout. Perfect for the Christmas and winter season to wear to parties, at work and for shopping trips. I might end up treating myself to this on payday next week instead though. 😛

  • CraftyFoxCollective Iridescent Metal Effect Purple Quartz Crystal Pendant Black Leather Cord Necklace – £5.25 (link)

I’m not much of a jewellery wearer for many reasons, my main one due to work but I would love to start wearing necklaces I have always wanted to. I wear my one choker quite a lot and bought a thick velvet choker a few months back to wear (even though I hate it…) so I want to start buying more. This is a necklace I really like the look of and it doesn’t even cost that much! I saw some like this when I went down to London last month and I regret not buying it! Rainbow crystals like this one just make me happy to look at, so I would love something like this to wear all the time. They’re pretty easy to find on Etsy, but this was my favourite of the bunch.

  • Yankee Candle Cherries On Show Large Jar – £21.99 (link)

OMG when I saw this in a couple of Yankee Candle shops I was so damn happy! Sadly it isn’t on the official UK website… Why? I don’t have a clue! This was a permanent scent for Christmas years and years ago but after two years it was discontinued so when I saw it was back I got super excited and have told loads of people that I want it. QVC have them on a special offer at the moment, so I may try and persuade someone to get one or two for me whilst they’re around. 😛 This is one of my favourite Yankee Candle scents so I would love to have it back in my life again. 😛

  • Black Milk Clothing For Fox Sake Grey Toasties – $80.00 AUD (link) and For Fox Sake Cap Sleeve Skater Dress – $90.00 AUD (link)

I LOVE Black Milk Clothing and I search at least two or three times a week for items I can pick up second hand on eBay, so when I watched their latest YouTube revealing their Christmas collection this year I got super excited. They have not just one but TWO fox themed pieces this year which look adorable! Of course there are the pictures above of the two pieces of clothing, leggings and a dress. The leggings are my favourite of the two at the moment due to them being toasties, which means they’ll keep your legs lovely and warm when it’s cold outside. Could definitely do with those for Christmas! I’d wear them for New Years as well as my birthday. The dress is Dane’s favourite of the two and I do get why. It would be lovely to team up with a burgundy cardigan, some tights, boots and a big coat for Christmas parties, as well as for Christmas day. I doubt I will get either of these for Christmas as they are hella expensive, but I’ll keep hopeful for them… Or at least one of them. 😛

So that is my Christmas wish list for this year! What items do you have on your lists?

Throughout the Christmas period I will be writing a couple of gift idea posts including Final Fantasy for definite, possibly Christmas jumpers, as well as many many more!

What posts would you like to see though throughout December? Make sure to let me  know in the comments down below! I know I’ve been really quiet recently due to me being super busy with work and the house, but I’ll be trying to write plenty of posts throughout December.

I hope all my readers are well and until next time, take care all!

Lush Bubbly Shower Gel – Review

I want to start off this review by saying that I haven’t loved a Christmas product by Lush since I discovered Snow Fairy about 7 years ago! As well as the Yog Nog scent a couple of years ago when it first emerged. I was gutted when Lush decided not to bring back the Yog Nog soap and bath bomb but I am so glad they replaced the scent with something just as yummy, Bubbly shower gel.

Lush describe this as:

A bucks fizz breakfast boost packed full of sweet orange oil and fresh grape juice to help your morning go off with a bang, or should that be pop?

To be honest I can’t make the connection with it being like bucks fizz… I can understand why it would be great for in the morning as it is so refreshing and one I use when I do really early shifts for work in the morning to wake me up! It contains both orange and lime oils so it’s a lovely citrus smelling shower gel. It reminds me of something you would pick up and use in the summer months or during a summer holiday, but this is perfect to use to perk you up on dull mornings and days in general really!

I picked this shower gel up last month when I attended the Coventry bbloggers event and I wish I had been really naughty now and picked up a bigger bottle! I nearly bought a 1kg bottle in London from Oxford Street but I was good! I picked up the little 100g bottle for £4.95 but online (and in most stores I’m sure) you can pick up the medium 250g bottle for £9.95 or the large 500g bottle for £16.50. I’m not sure how much the 1kg bottle costs.

The first thing I heard about Bubbly is how it reminds people of the Celebrate scent with its gorgeous oranges and lemon smell. It’s a lovely orange colour too. I personally think it shares its scent with Golden Wonder bath bomb which is one of my favourites! It’s has quite a thick consistency to it which I rather like as it means a little bit goes a long way and the bubbles and lather it creates are wonderful.

I teamed this up with my Golden Wonder in the bath recently and it was amazing! I used Bubbly as both a bubble bath and as a shower gel and I felt so refreshed and clean afterwards.

It leaves your skin feeling lovely and soft and lightly scented with its orange and lemon smell. I love using it when I’m going out for the day as people always comment that they can smell it lingering. LOVE IT! Due to this I especially love to use it before bed. It’s great getting under the duvet and getting a gentle waft of Bubbly.

I would say if Snow Fairy is too sweet for you and Rose Jam is too floral, then you will LOVE Bubbly! I don’t think I’ve met anyone yet who has said they’re not a fan of this new Christmas edition… If Lush don’t bring it back next year I will be gobsmacked as it is amazing! It’s a shame there isn’t any gold shimmer/glitter in it really as it would be perfect.

I definitely have the largest bottles of this on my wish list (alongside Snow Fairy of course!) and I plan to pick up loads in the sale as I will use this alllllll over the summer.

I don’t really have much more to say about Bubbly apart from that is is a perfect staple, especially if you need a pick me up on the cold mornings that are looming.

What do you think of Bubbly shower gel? Make sure to let me know in the comments down below!

Until next time take care all and I hope you have a wonderful weekend.

October ’16 Favourites

Wow October blitzed through this year and now Halloween is over it’s time for annoying people to shoot off fireworks at stupid times (and stupidly at each other…) and then onto alllllll the Christmas stuff!

But for now lets try and not get too excited for Christmas yet seeing as we have all of December to do that… Which will be here before we know it too! My favourites this month aren’t anything special sadly and I actually found it really hard trying to think of what I loved this month. Eventually I soon came up with some ideas. 😛

  • Lush Snow Fairy Shower Gel

As many of my old readers will know I LOVE Lush and I especially love Christmas time when Snow Fairy their Christmas classic comes out. This sells out fairly quickly when it first comes out, both online and in store. I still have my bottles from last year to use up before I buy anymore this year. Dane bought me the huge 1kg bottle last year for my birthday in January and we recently started to use it. We both love the smell so whenever either of us use it we can smell it on each other right up until the end of the day when we get into bed. It’s a great shower gel not just for the smell, but it leaves you feeling lovely and clean, as well as soft and smooth. Oh by the way the label isn’t on the bottle anymore because the label kept peeling and making a mess so pulling it off was just easier.

  • L’Occitane Shea Butter Hand Cream

My mom recently gave me a large tube of this hand cream because she got it for free when she ordered some goodies for herself. I have LOADS of L’Occitane hand cream to use up but meh I needed something at the time as my hands were really dry and I ended up keeping it. Now it lives in my handbag as my daily hand cream that I use before, during and after work. My eczema is starting to flare up again due to the cold so this hand cream has really helped to calm it down when it’s really bad. You can never go wrong with their shea butter hand cream, it’s definitely the best one I’ve ever used to date!

  • Jeffree Star Velour Liquid Lipstick in Androgyny

I LOVE Jeffree Star’s liquid lipsticks and I’m forever eyeing up a new shade to buy, or even new shades that are being released. Recently Beauty Bay a UK beauty brand online brought his brand out to the UK and along with that LOADS of shades! I hadn’t been fussed about picking up Androgyny until my friend Rhi from work picked it up and it looked so lovely on her, so she swayed me to pick one up myself. Since then I love it so damn much and wear it a couple of times a week. I’ll be reviewing this very soon.

  • Holika Holika Smoothie Peeling Jam (Grape Expectation)

This was a face scrub I picked up from Homesense when I was in Chichester for work. It’s a gel style scrub you apply to dry skin, with dry hands and the more you rub the more dead skin begins to form on the skin. It literally peels away all your old dead skin cells on the skin. I would love something like this for my whole body to be honest! I bought two jars of this as I loved it so much after the first use. A little bit of this goes a long way which is great. It’ll definitely last me ages!

  • Soap & Glory Sugar Crush Body Scrub

I’ve used this body scrub on and off for a couple of years now and make sure to use it weekly so ensure my skin stays lovely and soft. The best thing about it though is how lovely and sweet it smells, like a key lime pie. It works great not just for scrubbing the dead skin off of your body but also as it has some form of oil it leaves your skin feeling soft and as if you’ve used a body lotion or conditioner.

So those were my favourites from last month! I’ve found it was mostly items that help keep my body lovely and soft. You can tell the weather has got colder and harsher on the skin.

What did you love using last month? Make sure to let me know in the comments down below.

Until next time take care all and I hope November is an exciting month for you all!

Lush Coventry Halloween & Christmas BBlogger Event (WARNING! Picture Heavy!)*

 photo Photo 12-10-2016 6 15 21 pm_zps62mm0y0x.jpg

Oh my God I have never been so excited to write a post for quite a long time. As regular readers will know I LOVE Lush and I especially love when they come out with their new Halloween and Christmas products every year.

SO when the Coventry store called out for bloggers to go to their store for an event last week I jumped at the chance! I have been to the Coventry store various times in the past and it’s a lovely little store.

The event itself to date has been one of my favourites that I have attended and I really hope to attend more like it in the future. The staff were friendly and chatty and the fellow bloggers who were there were all lovely.

Apart from having a nose and sniff of all the new goodies the staff also talked us through all the new products which was great! When you visit Lush over Christmas it is constantly busy so you’re forever wanting to get shown how to use things but never being able to properly. So this was a great chance to see all the products properly and even try them ourselves.

The first thing we were shown were the body and face products which I was excited to look at. Buche De Noel an old Christmas favourite was the first thing to be shown to us. I’ve never tried it before but it’s said to be a creamy and softening face cleanser. You can get it in the normal version and alcohol free. If you like this old favourite then this year they have a special gift called Festive Fresh which contains Buche De Noel and Let The Good Times Roll.

A face product that they didn’t have in store (nor show us due to that I imagine) was the Papa Noel face wash jelly. When you take it out of the packaging it’s in the shape of a white Father Christmas beard. It’s the first time Lush have made anything like this and it looks like fun to use. I hope I get chance to look at it in a store soon!

The second item they showed us is a new one for Halloween this year which is Goth Fairy. This is part of the massage bar range but it contains shimmer so when it’s rubbed onto the skin it leaves behind a bit of shimmer. Well I say a bit, but it’s quite a generous amount! I stepped forward to have this demoed on me and it really does feel lovely. I was tempted to buy one of these to use on me and Dane as a massage bar for our backs, but due to the shimmer I left it. The scent of this reminded me The Comforter a little bit with its blackcurrant scent. This will be a great product to apply before a night out, especially over the Christmas period! As this is part of the Halloween range you need to make sure you pick one up before they fly away.

As a fan of the Twilight scent and family I KNEW I would love the Sleepy body lotion, which is new this year. I hope Lush bring this out in the Lush Kitchen often to keep us lot happy! This isn’t a super thick body lotion and when you first open the pot it has some silver shimmer on the top which makes it look too good to use! I tried this on my hands during the event and it made them feel really nice and soft. As regular readers of my blog will know I suffer with eczema and so I’m always trying out different hand creams to try and help it. This one seems like a winner and one I’ll definitely be picking up before Christmas is over! It smells just like the shower gel too, but not as intense which I really liked. It’ll be a nice one to use before bed.

There was more products that the staff showed us, but sadly I didn’t get pictures. One being the Fairy Dust dusting powder, which is a returning favourite from last year. It smells just like Snow Fairy and I was given one last year by a friend. It smells gorgeous and due to it containing shimmer it’s lovely to use before nights out.

For Christmas Lush have also introduced a new dusting powder called Mr Sandman, which shares its scent with the Twilight family! It smells lovely, but not as good as the shower gel and body lotion in my opinion. If I had to choose one of the two new items that are out this year, the body lotion would be mine. This is a white dusting powder so it doesn’t leave behind any colour after use, just plenty of shimmer!

After looking at those items we were moved onto shower and there are a couple of new pieces for Christmas. The first one we looked at was Salt And Peppermint Bark body scrub which Lush brought out last year. I’m so glad they’ve brought it back as I never got the chance to try it last year! This smells like peppermint chocolate bark, which is obviously where this gets its name from.

Sadly this year there aren’t any new shower jellies, but Lush have brought back Santa’s Belly which was a new one last year. It is said to share its scent with So White bath bomb, but I don’t think so at all! So White is crisp apple smelling, whilst this one has a different scent in my eyes. It’s red with red stars inside of it. Nice to use in the mornings to wake you up! The Coventry store has a huge version of it on display, which I played with for a bit.

Lush have also brought back Snowman shower jelly which has been around for as long as I can remember! The store has a big version of this too like Santa’s Belly, but sadly my picture turned out blurry of it. 😦  It comes in the shape of a snowman, which looks really cute when you take it out of the tub. It smells of gentle citrus and like Santa’s Belly will be lovely to use in the morning before work to wake you up.

Another product from last year that I was super excited about has come back again this year! YAY, and something that makes it better is that it is now available in two sizes instead of just the large size. This is Christingle body conditioner. It’s like a body lotion that you use in the shower. You apply this to the skin after using a shower gel and rinse it off to be left with beautiful smooth and yummy smelling skin. Due to the mint and menthol in this one it leaves your skin feeling tingly and cool. Probably not what you want in winter, but it smells amazing AND look at that gorgeous blue colour!

Alongside Christingle Lush have brought another body conditioner out this year, however this one is new and one everyone has already fallen in love with. Of course it is Snow Fairy body conditioner and oh my God it smells beautiful! I know I already want to pick one of these up and hopefully quite a few in the Boxing Day sales. Like the shower gel the conditioner is pink, but when you open up your new tub it will have some shimmer on the top just like the Sleepy body lotion. Oh Lush why do you do this to my bank account?

 photo Photo 12-10-2016 6 59 43 pm_zpsictftods.jpg

Of course it wouldn’t be a Lush Christmas without Snow Fairy! I’ve recently opened my 1kg bottle that Dane bought me for my birthday. There isn’t much I can say about this. It smells beautiful, it looks beautiful, so go buy it. 😛

 photo Photo 12-10-2016 6 59 36 pm_zpsxhmfhd75.jpg

Rose Jam shower gel has been around for a couple of years now and I don’t actually remember it ever coming out. I do however remember everyone obsessing about it last year! I personally don’t see what all the fuss is about this shower gel, but that’s just me. It does have a floral yet sweet smell behind it. I was gifted the bubbleroon version of this last Christmas and I absolutely loved it! I’ve got a Rose Jam to use so I’ll make sure to review it soon! 😀

 photo Photo 12-10-2016 7 02 01 pm_zpsaqax3yia.jpg

This isn’t for Christmas and is actually for Halloween, however Lord Of Misrule shower cream is available all year in the Oxford Street store, so this is just a goody for anyone who can’t make it to that store. I still want to give this a go as I really do like the scent of it.

 photo Photo 12-10-2016 6 59 27 pm_zpsw1qfulwb.jpg

The newest member of the Christmas shower gel family this year is Bubbly and oh boy this is probably my favourite new thing this year that Lush has brought out. I ended up buying one of these after the event as I loved it that much. It shares its scent with Golden Wonder bath bomb, so an uplifting and citrus scent thanks to ingredients such as grapefruit, lemon and grapes. I already know I’ll be buying a huge bottle of this as it’s just such a beautiful scent.

 photo Photo 12-10-2016 6 59 46 pm_zps83xbg4u7.jpg

The last shower item we were shown were Candy Cane and Yog Log shower roulade. Now I’m not a huuuuge fan of these as I find they’re quite expensive for what they do to my skin. However when I heard that Lush weren’t bringing back Yog Nog as either the soap or the bath bomb I was GUTTED! I did get to try this in store however and it felt really lovely when applied to the skin. So it is something I will be trying at some point! I doubt that I’ll fall in love with it mind. I mean come on Lush!? I want Yog Nog back! 😛 I was actually expecting them to bring out a shower cream to be honest, but alas it didn’t happen. I may have to make my own with the two Yog Nog bath bombs I have left.

 photo Photo 12-10-2016 7 13 18 pm_zpsjw9bynxl.jpg

Next we moved onto the soaps. I’m not a huge fan of Lush soaps (apart from Yog Nog and Rock Star) as I’m allergic to quite a lot of them so I often more than not steer clear of them. At Christmas though I always give the new and existing ones a sniff and this year I discovered quite a few I liked the smell of.

 photo Photo 12-10-2016 7 32 23 pm_zpstilmp1b3.jpg

This is Igloo soap and it reminds me of a mixture of Turkish Delight and fruit pastilles. That being said this soap does infact smell of Turkish Delight which in turn reminded me of Angels Delight soap that Lush had out for various years until last year. I didn’t like that soap sadly due to it giving me an awful allergic reaction. The smell is lovely mind. This will make a lovely gift for someone to open on Christmas Day who loves fruit pastilles.

This is one of my least favourite products this year and it isn’t due to the appearance or scent. I LOVED Reindeer Rock last year and the year before. Before the change it was purple, with silver reindeer on and it smelt just like The Comforter. I LOVED it! Now it is blue, looks like a pebble with a gold reindeer on and smells NOTHING LIKE IT DID BEFORE! WHAT?! It smells more floral now and whilst it doesn’t smell horrible, it just isn’t the same. I would have expected Lush to change the name of it to be honest. Either way it does look pretty, just a shame about the scent change…

 photo Photo 12-10-2016 7 33 32 pm_zpsmmsb2otg.jpg

These two are definitely my favourite soaps this year and I can actually see me buying a chunk of them both to try.

 photo Photo 12-10-2016 7 33 37 pm_zpsab42mcol.jpg

My favourite of the two and out of all the soaps is definitely Baked Alaska. It’s been around for a couple of years now from memory and I never really recall it smelling like this beforehand but it is gorgeous. It reminds me of Bubbly with its citrus scents, such as grapefruit. It is definitely one that would wake you up in the morning to use. Sadly due to the type of soap this is (gel look) I have a feeling I’ll be allergic to it. Sad times. 😦

 photo Photo 12-10-2016 7 33 35 pm_zpsbsu4cphp.jpg

This was definitely an eye catching soap and one I really love the look of. If I got a decent chunk I would end up wanting to just have it for show over Christmas on a soap dish instead of using it! No I joke. This is Snowcastle soap and like Baked Alaska it has been around for a while from memory. This smells of creamy marzipan and is one for people with a sweet tooth! It isn’t too sweet scent wise though. This is a creamy soap and I have a feeling my skin will like this one, especially my hands.

 photo Photo 12-10-2016 7 33 40 pm_zpsip53gsci.jpg

This is a new soap this year and one that I’ve seen quite a few people go crazy for. When I first saw and heard about Shooting Stars soap I immediately assumed it would smell the same as Shoot For The Stars bath bomb due to the appearance. Alas it is nothing like it and actually smells of lemon and lime which smells delicious! This soap is very pretty to look at but it’s also a little bit special. When put in the dark or at least a dark room the UV in the stars makes the stars glow. Magical or what?!

 photo Photo 12-10-2016 7 33 49 pm_zpszyvajamp.jpg

I didn’t get a very good picture of this soap sadly, which I was pretty gutted about! But this is Santa’s Postbox soap and it is gorgeous to look at! It’s in an English red postbox shape and it just looks amazing. It also smells great too and shares its scent with Satsuma bath bomb due to the orange and satsuma scent. I got given  chunk of this from the store to take home but sadly due to the gel style consistency of this soap I’m worried that I may end up having an allergic reaction… We will have to see how I get on! I’ll be reviewing this for sure.

Alongside all those soaps there were two I sadly didn’t manage to get pictures of such as them being Halloween soaps and I was kinda too excited for the Christmas ones. I did smell these of course and they are really lovely. Fireside soap reminds me of bonfire night due to the smokey yet soothing scent of it. I would love to buy this but I don’t know if I would use it enough. It’s a very manly scent. There was also Magic Wand soap which is full of yummy fruity scents and one that will definitely wake you up on a cold autumn morning.

These are just two of the many new Christmas products I was excited to see at the event and I ended up buying the Sugar Plum Fairy lip tint after the event finished. YAY! I haven’t yet used it though but I intend to after today and review it as soon as possible.

As well as the Sugar Plum Fairy range Lush have brought back the red cola smelling lip products Santa Baby lip scrub and lip tint. I tried the new lip tint in the tube (I’ve only ever owned the one in the tin) and it really does tint, if not stains your lips! I would love to pick one of these up before Christmas is over. I’ve owned both in the past and they really are lovely lip products so I was excited to try the new ones which have a yummy blackcurrant taste and scent, just like The Comforter… Which in turn is one of my favourite scents by Lush.

I’m surprised I didn’t pick up the Sugar Plum Fairy lip scrub after the event as it smelt delicious, just like Ribena so I can only imagine it would taste just as amazing as well! I love the Lush lip scrubs as they’re great value for money and really are good to use before applying liquid lipsticks. However I always forget to use them and they end up being a waste of money… If someone gifts me this this Christmas I won’t complain but due to the above fact I can’t see me buying it myself. 😦

 photo Photo 12-10-2016 7 24 53 pm_zpsmxsejj12.jpg

This is the Sugar Plum Fairy lip tint. LOOK HOW DAMN PIGMENTED THAT IS! Oh and the colour is gorgeous too of course! I didn’t expect it to be as bright as it came out. It looks like a dark purple in the tube but comes out as a raspberry pink with some pink and purple shimmer, which is only slight. This reminds me of Rebel lipstick by MAC. I honestly cannot wait to wear this to work and review it.

 photo Photo 12-10-2016 6 53 22 pm_zps1pmmc10g.jpg

Onto the part of this post that I’m sure everyone is excited for, the bath bombs and bubble bars! I have loads to talk about here, both old and new products.

Candy Mountain bubble bar is an oldie that has changed shape over the years, but a few years back it finally found it’s form and is the beautiful mini mountain we all know and love today. It smells exactly the same as Creamy Candy bubble bar and Rock Star soap. If you like Snow Fairy you’ll love these as it smells like a sweet creamy vanilla scent.

 photo Photo 12-10-2016 7 20 31 pm_zpsrxou1dtt.jpg

These are the two new reuseable bubble bar by Lush and they’re both amazing!

 photo Photo 12-10-2016 7 20 34 pm_zpsw1h8pcs9.jpg

The first one is Jester, a cute little guy who will appeal to children a lot. It is a citrus scented bubble bar which will be lovely to use after a long day when you need to be perked up a little bit. I know I’ll be picking one of these cuties up! I love how colourful it is and I bet it makes the bath water a lovely orange colour to match its scent. This teamed up with Bubble shower gel will work perfectly.

 photo Photo 12-10-2016 6 57 13 pm_zpsc6alijes.jpg

This is another one of my favourite bubble bars this year! It’s Santasaurus and it smells just like Honey I Washed The Kids soap, so of yummy toffee and sweet treats. Plus look how cute it is?! It’s a little dinosaur with a Christmas hat on! Yes you wouldn’t expect to see it at Christmas but this is why Lush are so great when it comes to Christmas. They come out with different things and not always traditional, which I love. I bet this turns the bath water a beautiful turquoise shade. I’m so excited to try it.

 photo Photo 12-10-2016 6 56 57 pm_zpsc3wwzdpe.jpg

Magic Wand is a returning favourite to Lush and I still have a couple of these left in my Lush box. These share their scent with Snow Fairy and create some amazing bubbles when put under a running tap.

 photo Photo 12-10-2016 6 57 00 pm_zpswosaigke.jpg

This is a returning reuseable bubble bar from last year and is one that whilst I’m not a fan of the scent, it’s definitely one of the best looking of the four! It’s The Magic Of Christmas and is a gold star bubble bar on a cinnamon stick. It smells warm and delicious of cinnamon and clove. If you love scents like this then you will love this one!

 photo Photo 12-10-2016 6 55 32 pm_zps3cm1irhl.jpg

Peeping Santa bubble bar is another returner from last year and one I’m excited to see again! I got one of these for Christmas and I didn’t think I would like it, but I loved using it in one of the first baths I had in our house. It’s a soft strawberry scent and is very conditioning for the skin. I want to pick up quite a few of these in the Boxing Day sales!

 photo Photo 12-10-2016 6 53 26 pm_zps0kkl4uaj.jpg

I am so damn happy to see this little cutie back, The Christmas Penguin! Lush didn’t bring him back last Christmas and myself and lots of other Lushies were really sad about it. Finally he has returned and I can’t wait to pick one up. He has a lovely soft scent which reminds me of Johnson’s baby bath. If I remember right this is a bubble bar aimed at children but sod it, adults love this cutie just as much.

 photo Photo 12-10-2016 6 56 55 pm_zps5kthtnjk.jpg

This bubble bar is called Snowie and is clearly inspired by David Bowie. The legend died at the start of this year, which was a terrible shame. 😦 So from what I can gather, Lush decided to show their love for him in this way. This bubble bar reminds me of something that I can’t quite put my finger on. It’s said to have grapefruit in but I can’t really smelly it to be honest. It reminds me a little of Tramp shower gel and Supertramp bubble bar, but a softer smelling version. I’ll definitely be buying one.

 photo Photo 12-10-2016 6 57 16 pm_zpsi735darf.jpg width=

Finally we have Ruby Red Slippers bubble bar this year which is a returner after seven years. Yes you read that correctly 7 YEARS! This is also the bubble bar we got the chance to make ourselves, which was so much fun! This smells heavily of cinnamon and is a very warming bubble bar. It’s bright red and have red glitter all over it too. I’m not a massive fan of the scent as it gives me a bit of a headache. It is clearly inspired by the shoes that Dorothy wears in The Wizard of Oz and a lot of people probably wouldn’t relate the film to Christmas, but I sure do. From the age of 5 I remember year after year attempting to watch this movie before bed on Christmas Eve and always falling to sleep around the time she meets the Scarecrow. When I was 9 my dad bought it for me for Christmas so I could finally watch it without worrying about falling to sleep. I was so happy!

Now it’s time to talk about bath bombs! There are quite a few new ones out which is awesome. My favourite things to buy from Lush are always the bubble bars, bath bombs and shower gels/creams. 😀

 photo Photo 12-10-2016 6 57 49 pm_zpsu1dhqwnw.jpg

This is one of the new bath bombs for this year which is called Mistletoe and I really don’t like it! Which is a shame as it looks so damn pretty. It’s a very strong floral scented bath bomb and I’m not a fan of that at all sadly. If you love ylang ylang then you will love this bath bomb!

 photo Photo 12-10-2016 6 57 47 pm_zpshhutn60m.jpg

This cutie is a new version of Shoot For The Stars and I don’t know if I prefer it or not, I think I do however. It’s blue with gold star melts inside. It shares its scent with Honey I Washed The Kids which has a yummy toffee scent. I was given one of these in my goody bag after the event and it smells just like the previous versions. This is one of my favourite bath bombs so I can’t wait to see what it’ll be like with its new design.

 photo Photo 12-10-2016 6 57 31 pm_zpsyfs683pf.jpg

This is another new bath bomb this year which everyone has gone crazy over due to Roller bath bomb. Never Mind The Ballistics is a yellow bath bomb with a pink bath melt on the top. It’s said to smell really citrusy due to the orange and lime oils but personally I couldn’t smell anything at the time of giving it a sniff. Maybe it was due to smelling so many products. I was really excited to smell this too, so when I did I was left disappointed. It looks very pretty though and I know the colours are inspired after the Sex Pistols album cover, but it doesn’t really remind me of Christmas sadly.

 photo Photo 12-10-2016 6 57 08 pm_zpsph290ara.jpg

This is by far my favourite bath bomb and especially my favourite for Christmas. I remember when So White first came out back when I was either 19 or 20 and it was a tiny little bath bomb. Well it has come a long way since then! It’s become a larger bath bomb, has had bubble bar added inside and has had colours added inside. Now it has been transformed again and has a green leaf on the top and from what I’ve heard is now green inside instead of red. I cannot wait to get my hands on one this year!

 photo Photo 12-10-2016 6 57 24 pm_zpsbc7o49b3.jpg

Another returner from last year and one that Lush has updated for the better this year. I know I found myself dealing with broken Star Dust bath bombs in the post and it really pissed me off. Now Lush have created a stronger bath bomb so that this same issue doesn’t happen again. It’s exactly the same as last year though and is so damn pretty! I can’t wait to pick some up again as I miss their creamy vanilla scent.

 photo Photo 12-10-2016 6 57 34 pm_zps0rsmo8ms.jpg

An old favourite among children and adults alike, it’s Butterbear bath bomb which shares its scent with Butterball bath bomb. It smells of chocolate and contains chunks of cocoa butter. Great for moisturising the skin after a long day.

 photo Photo 12-10-2016 7 21 03 pm_zpsx7v3hooe.jpg

This is one of my favourite Christmas bath bombs and is called Golden Wonder. It’s been around for as long as I can remember! I still have one from last year in my Lush box that I still need to use. It smells of citrus so lemon, lime and oranges. It shares its scent with Bubbly shower gel so I can’t wait to team the two up together!

 photo Photo 12-10-2016 7 27 54 pm_zpshe1lfoi6.jpg

Father Christmas is a bath bomb that Snow Fairy lovers need in their lives. Due to sharing its scent with the best Fairy around and when it fizzes away in the bath the red outside reveals a bright green center.

This is an oldie bath bomb from a couple of years ago and is called Luxury Lush Pud. It doesn’t just share its scent with Twilight bath bomb, but it also looks beautiful! Christmas pudding doesn’t usually look like this which is what I like the most about this bath bomb. As it dissolves in the bath the coloured circles move from around it to form beautiful colours in the bath, as you can see from the picture above.

This is a bath bomb I thought Lush has discontinue for good after it not making a return last year. I loved the smell of this one and so did Dane but it wasn’t meant to be as we never bought one two years ago and couldn’t last year. However the bath bomb has now been changed and is better than ever! When placed into the water is is probably one of the prettiest bath bombs Lush has brought out. I am of course talking about Northern Lights. It’s a floral bath bomb which I find is really light smelling in comparison to a lot of Lush’s floral bath bombs and products. When placed into water it doesn’t just show it’s purple colours, but also yellow and blue. It’s so pretty and really does look like the northern lights.

 photo Photo 12-10-2016 7 20 42 pm_zpsn3kc4p67.jpg

Alongside Lush’s bubble bars and bath bombs we also have the bath melts and FUN bars to pick up too. Snow Angel is the only bath melt out this Christmas which is a shame as I love them! I’ve got one of these in my Lush box from last year and I’ve never used Snow Angel before. I hear it smells of marzipan which sounds delicious. I can’t wait to use this one cold evening to warm me up a little inside.

 photo Photo 12-10-2016 7 20 47 pm_zpss9pdkz2w.jpg

Of course since Lush creating FUN they always bring some out every Christmas. Lush have done the unthinkable and brought out a Snow Fairy FUN! I’m so damn excited for this and can’t wait to pick it up soon! They also have Reindeer And Robin which smells of cola and alongside Snow Fairy I’m really excited for it. Elf On The Shelf smells of refreshing grapefruit and Santa smells floral. FUN is amazing as you can use it for various things! To wash your body in the shower, run under the bath to create some yummy bubbles, make little people out of it and also used on your hair as shampoo.

I left the Halloween bath products until last to talk about!

 photo Photo 12-10-2016 6 57 19 pm_zpsfs97mgwm.jpg

Boo bath melt is new this year for Halloween and one I really wanted to love due to how adorable it looks, but sadly it isn’t for me. It smells of ginger and ick that really isn’t a scent for me. Why couldn’t it smell of marshmallow? It would have smelt amazing!

 photo Photo 12-10-2016 7 20 57 pm_zpsssipeshl.jpg

I’ve never really smelt this bath bomb until now and it smells really yummy and fresh with lime and grapefruit. It’s Sparkly Pumpkin I wouldn’t mind giving it a go to be honest but the gold glitter puts me off… We shall see for sure.

 photo Photo 12-10-2016 6 57 51 pm_zps9l4isdhl.jpg

Pumpkin bath bomb is new this year and one I knew I wouldn’t like. I’m not a fan of pumpkin both in taste and scent and this just reminds me of the scent of a pumpkin pie. ICK! It does look beautiful though and it is perfect for Halloween, especially over the pond in America.

 photo Photo 12-10-2016 6 57 57 pm_zpsc9akak5p.jpg

This is by far one of my favourite items that Lush has brought out for Halloween! It smells of lime and reminds me of lime sweeties. Monsters Ball reminds me of something from Monsters Inc and I love it so damn much! I’ll be picking up a couple before Halloween is over.

 photo Photo 12-10-2016 7 28 01 pm_zpsnxbows0c.jpg

Autumn Leaf is a new bath bomb for Halloween this year and of course it’s for the autumn season. I was sad that I didn’t like the scent of this one mind as it was very grass and floral heavy. It looks beautiful though!

So that is all the products! I know this post is really damn long as it is but I have a little bit more to write about and then I will be done! FINALLY! After going around the store we got the chance to make our own Red Ruby Slippers bubble bar, which was so much fun to make! I got the chance to mix the colouring and flavours into the mix which was harder than it looked at the time.

Finally it was time to buy any goodies we wanted, grab a goodie bag and head home but not before a picture of us all, which I have popped here of course, alongside a picture I nabbed from the Lush Coventry Instagram page.

Overall I loved the event that the Lush Coventry store put on for us beauty bloggers and I felt so happy being there! I was shattered after work and just wanted to have some fun at the event and meet some fellow bloggers, which is exactly what I did. I had an amazing time and from what I said at the start of the post it’s so far the best event I have been to to date!

I want to thank the store for letting me come to the event and I hope that I can attend more in the future.

What do you guys think of the Lush Halloween and Christmas range this year? Make sure to let me know what you think in the comments down below.

Until next time, take care all and I hope you’re having a lovely week.
