Firstly, apologies for being slightly MIA of late on the blog / social front – I’ve been snowed under work wise and am currently redesigning all of my sites (including my blog, yay) which is taking up a lot of my free time – In a couple of weeks I’ll be back to normal posting and my little blog will have had a much needed face lift. Thanks for bearing with me!

I also appreciate it’s been a bit of a Lush-fest here and on my IG … I would attribute this to the fact that it’s been so hectic, the bath is a place I can relax so I’ve been indulging in that treat even more than usual (I will admit to taking my iPad with me so I can catch up on beauty vlogs & watch episodes of Friends). I’ve got a load of other beauty posts lined up but I’m afraid in the meantime, it’s yet another Lush-centric post.

When news of the Lush Winter 2015 collection dropped, I will admit to being slightly (ok very) disappointed the Northern Lights bath bomb wasn’t making an appearance, so when Lush Kitchen announced they would be selling it, I knew I had to get it. That next morning I ditched coffee & reading emails at 8am for frantically refreshing the Lush Kitchen site – even getting Aaron to help (two refreshers are better than one, right?).

It arrived a week later and even through the outer packaging I could smell the strong citrus scent – I had a soap making kit as a child I can vividly remember smelling just like this, it made me feel really nostalgic.

The gift set was packaged using a Snow & Ice knot wrap. I haven’t had any of the Lush knot wraps before but it’s great for tying hair out the way when in the bath or around the house.

The gift set contained four items: Northern Lights bath bomb, Star Light Star Bright bath melt, Abombinaball bath bomb and Snow Showers shower jelly.

The strong citrus scent was coming from the Star Light Star Bright bath melt, which also caked everything in silver glitter. I couldn’t wait to try that and my old favourite, Northern Lights bath bomb, but the other two products also smelled amazing.

Have you tried any of these old favourites?
