Taking a bath is honestly one of the most relaxing things ever. Take a new magazine, a candle, some sort of bubbles, and it's like you're at your own in-home spa. So to further my in-home spa experience, I visited LUSH and picked up their Floating Island bath melt. At first I was a little skeptical on their bath melts, cause some of them are quite small for about seven dollars, and a one time bath use. But after using floating Island I will probably buy them again. If you're looking for more of the bubble route, theses aren't for you. I had to cut mine in half with a knife because I didn't want to take that long of a bath, and I didn't want it to go to waste. After cutting it in half I put it in my hot bath and just let it float and fizz in their while I enjoyed my bath. It gave off really nice smells of vanilla, and almost lemon but not too strong. It's a really nice smell. I you're going to buy a bath melt I say buy this one. It's big enough to cut in half and it smells divine!
Have you tried bath melts? Which one is your favorite?

Lately I have been getting into NARS more, and while I was shopping my life away at their counter in Sephora I ran across this! Its a mini shadow pencil, and it was only ten dollars! I got it on my way to the checkout where they have all of the mini stuff. I really like this blue color. Blue is really a good summer color for me, and as soon as I put this on I felt that I was on a boat, or in Greece, or somewhere very blue. It's a really great color. I also like it because it's a good way to wear a bright color. It's bright but it can also be seen as not bright, so if you're not that into brights, or you want to start getting into brights try this out.You can use it as an all over eye shadow, or you can use it as a liner, which is what I prefer. When I run out of this I will most definitely be buying it in the normal size, that's how much I love it!
Will you guys try this color out?

Lush, lush, lush. I can't get enough of them. I'm broadening my horizons on their soap, and the other day I picked up their Sea Vegetable soap. On the packaging it says that it cost $12.65, but that's because I had another small one for my mother, so together both of them were $12.65. So this soap smells, very fresh, almost citrus like, and very much like the ocean, but in a good way. I was told it was going to be exfoliating but I felt like it was just kind of a trick. The top of it is where there is sea salt, and seaweed. I was really excited about this but when I got in the shower it kind of just broke off, instead of exfoliating, and the second con is that it didn't lather very well, or at all really. Compared to my porridge one(which I rate a 9), I give this one a sad 5. Only because the smell was okay, and it didn't lather, and it didn't exfoliate, so for me it earns a 5.
Have you tried this soap?
So I lost the box to this because I was so excited to wear it without taking pictures first, but this is my new favorite lipstick. I have been wearing this non-stop. It goes on so nicely and it is perfect for the summer. To put this on and make it stay without creasing I've been putting a tiny bit of concealer on my lips and then this over. I used to use MAC lip primer but I returned it because it sucked so bad, do not buy their lip primer! Putting concealer on works way better and it brings out the color of this lipstick really well. I wore it out all day on Saturday and I got lots of compliments! So if you don't have a purple lipstick yet, go and get this one!
Are any of you gonna try purple lipstick this Spring/Summer?

Today I also have these two nail polishes from Butter London, if you're not familiar with Butter London they're a 3 free nail company, and they make great shades! They cost about 14 dollars a bottle, but I feel it's worth it because some of their colors, are truly amazing. I don't have any of these right now that are MUST haves, but I do like these two. The one on the left is called Trout Pout, and the on on the right is called Henley Regatta. Trout Pout is my favorite, because it is a really salmony pink which is really nice when you don't want a very bright pink, and you don't want a light pink. Henley Regatta is a glitter polish, and I like it as an accent nail with a blue-green color as the base nail. These go on really smooth, and they don't leave any streaks behind!
This is from LUSH and it's one of their bubble bars. If you've never had a bubble bar before they are bars and you break them off and put them in the bathtub and they create bubbles. I love these, you will be seeing more reviews of these because they're definitely worth it. The comforter cost $9.95 and it was totally worth it. I put it in the bath and it bubbles and smells really nice, and it turns the water pink! It makes your bath feel extra special, and its natural which is a bonus for me!
Have you tried any of their bubble bars?

Nude, sheer, and sparkles. Best combo ever. I was a little bit skeptical about buying these so I decided to buy the petites. And I'm super glad that I did. It came with four colors. The white one is called Don't Touch My Tutu, the purple is called Care to Danse? they grey is called My Pointe Exactly and the sparkle is called Pirouette My Whistle. These colors look awesome and pale, and pastel in the bottle which I loved. But when you put them on you have to put a ton of coats on to bring out just a hint of color. As you can see in the swatches they all kind of look the same. And those swatches are with four coats. If you're gonna buy any of these I would say buy Pirouette My Whistle. It shows up well because it sparkles and I just feel like the others are nice, interview appropriate colors, but just not exciting enough for me.
What do you think of these colors?

FINALLY! I feel like I have literally been waiting forever to get my box! And I actually like my box! Even though I thought I wouldn't. This month is earth month, so they were trying to go green basically(except taylor swift.)For those of you who don't know birchbox is a subscription and you receive 4-5 samples products for $10 a month. Sign up here! So in my box I received
1. J.R. Watkins Hand&Cuticle Salve- I really like this, you just rub your finger in it and apply it to your cuticles, it makes them super soft, and you only have to apply it like once every two days.
2. Taylor Swift Wonderstruck- I know everyone thinks, wow another perfume sample as a real sample. I thought that too, but I actually didn't mind getting this one because it smells quite good.
3. Alima Pure Nourishing Lip Balm- I'm not particularly fond of this lip balm. Its pigmented, a sort of nudey-pink. And I always like nude and pink but this is just sort of a grandma color. It also went on a bit harder than you would expect. But it did have a minty feel to it, and I enjoyed that.
4. Jurlique Day Cream- I really like this cream. And it's a nice sized sample, and you really only need a little bit. The only thing I didn't like about this cream was that it made my skin very oily for about 30 minutes, but I suppose that was just it setting in because after that my skin was very soft.
5. Dropps Natural Laundry detergent- They said this is a lifestyle extra, and honestly...I don't know. I was so upset when I saw this. It's a good idea, going with the natural, but I signed up for cosmetics. But what can you do?
Over all it was a good month, I'm happier than I thought I would be.
