I was excited to try out the blackberry bath bomb since I had been eyeballing it for a while, but it ended up being a huge let down. The first con was the smell while using it. Blackerry smells like blackberries, bergamot, and frankinsence but when dropped in bath water the aroma completely disappears. Being able to smell my bath bombs while I'm in the tub is a big deal to me. It's what makes the whole experience so much more relaxing. It wasn't fun to watch while fizzing either. Watching the fizzing process gets me so much more excited to bathe! Overall, this was not a great bath bomb for the price. Basically the only thing that happened was the water turned a shimmery purple and had a little "fortune" inside. Space girl does that same exact thing, minus the paper, and you can smell that while bathing. Plus space girl is cheaper! I'd advise you try that one because they're pretty similar.

I randomly came across Nosaj Thing's latest album Home while I was in a record shop a few weeks ago. I decided to buy it without even giving it a listen first because I had been tipped off to it by a fellow blogger who called this the best album so far of 2013. I trust their taste so I figured why not. Having a physical copy of albums always makes it more special. I had no idea what to expect, which made listening to this so much more exciting. After hearing the entire album once, I listened to it five more times. Yeah. Only two of the tracks have any lyrics or vocals, but that's something I really enjoyed. The electronic sounds are open to the listener's own interpretation. "Eclipse/Blue" is slightly eerie and the vocals sound very longing to me. Check it out and tell me your thoughts!

For some reason I decided to gather up all of my Lush items and photograph my collection. Now that I see it all in one place, I don't know whether I should be impressed or questioning whether I need to tone it down a bit! In my defense I got a lot of these products buy one get one free and I just had to stock up on the limited edition Christmas items! Clearly I'm stocked up for quite some time. And there's also some more stuff in the shower...

I think Lush is one of the best things that's ever happened to me. I had always seen it in passing while at the mall and I knew it as the store that has Goth Juice and soap that looks like wedges of cheese. After seeing photos and blog posts online about the Lush bath bombs, I knew I had to check it out since bath bombs had always made bath time so much more fun when I was a kid. After I tried one bath bomb I knew I had to scope out their other products. I quickly went on to trying the fresh face masks, soaps, and many more bath bombs. It eventually got to the point where I was (and still am, of course) using multiple Lush products daily. I've never found a store that stands so similarly with what I stand for. Basically every product is vegan, absolutely no animal testing, natural products, and recyclable/reusable packaging. And I can't forget to mention how helpful and kind everyone who works there is. I know that anytime I walk into a store, someone is going to be pleasant about helping me out, willing to answer my questions, and eager to provide samples or demonstrate how to use a product. 

Besides providing great products to improve my hair and skin and get me clean, Lush has done a tremendous job at making me a happier person overall. I never realized how much the little things could ever have such a long-term effect on my well-being. After every bath I take, I'm calm, rejuvenated, and so happy. And it isn't just the bath products that make me feel that way. Any time I use any of theirs, I feel good about what I'm using. Knowing that nothing from Lush is chemical ridden and harming to animals or the environment is really refreshing. Lush has changed the way I view body products and in all seriousness, has been life-changing. 

Here's a list of all that is shown in the photo: 8 melting snowmen bath melts, 2 avobath bath bombs, enchanter bath bomb, fox in the flowers bath bomb, the ex-factor bath bomb, 3 godiva shampoo bars, seanik shampoo bar, magic mushroom bubble bar, demon in the dark soap, 2 snowcake soaps, eau roma water toner, ultrablast toothy tabs, vanillary hard perfume, translucent face powder, shine so bright split end treatment, fantasy eyeliner, motivation eyeliner, focus cream eyeshadow, willow pattern soap, herbalism face cleanser, dark angels face cleanser, aromaco deodorant, cosmetic warrior fresh face mask, from dusk till dawn massage bar, 2 snow fairy shower gels, imperialis moisturizer, and two pink FUNs.
