City Date + Lush Overload

Helllloooo beautiful!

The weekend is hereeeeeeeeee! Woohooooo! Yesterday I had an early start to my day since Noel had an am dentist appointment. (He got his first teeth cleaning!!! AND he didn't throw up on the dentist this time, I was so proud)

I decided to take advantage of having an early start and head into the city to spend a nice calm shopping day with my little guy. Our first and main stop was Lush on 34th street. Boy did I go crazy! I try not too go to Lush too often, once every few months, but when I do go I like to stock up for the months ahead. I especially love love love their bath bombs, bubble bars and fresh face masks. Those products are what made me a Lushie to begin with but now I'm actually starting to branch out and try some of their other products as well.

Below is my blog haul of what I picked up as well as my OOTD. Enjoy my loves!

 Thank you to my 4 year old for the great OOTD pic he took of me! He may become my new photographer lol.
Outfit details: boots - steve madden, colored skinny jeans - gap, top - old navy, sweater - NY&Co

My big bag of gooodddiiess!!

 Of course I had to pick up my favorite everrrrrr face mask - "oatifix" from the fresh face mask line at Lush. This time around I also picked up "the sacred truth" to give it a try. I used it last night and it left my face feeling very fresh but it didn't give me a deep down cleaning. I also got "ocean salt" which is a face and body scrub (exfoliant) that came highly recommended by a good friend of mine. I can't get over the delicious smell and it's infused with real vodka - hello happy hour!
In the plastic tube is the "dark angels" cleanser. It's targeted for oily skin which I do not have but sometimes I get carried away in Lush. It was cool and pretty and I wanted black stuff on my face so I asked for about $7 worth of product and they measure the amount for you. At least I didn't buy a full size of a product that isn't really for my skin type. =0]

I picked up another pack of "fun" for Noel. He has the green one but wanted a different color. Basically this works as clay in the sense that you can mold and make whatever you want. Then you crumble it into the bathtub under running water and get tons and tons of bubbles. Noel adores this stuff!! And it makes him excited to take a bath - a mommy's dream come true!

Below are two newbies that I'm trying out. The green one is called "sugar scrub" and the name explains exactly what it is. Dry winter skin - I'm ready for you!!! The white heart like shape is called "shimmy shimmy" and it acts as a solid lotion almost (You rub it on your body) but it leaves behind the most gorgeous shimmer!!! Perfect to use before a night out, I'm so excited to try that out!!! Now I just need some plans.

Below we have my weakness: Bath Bombs. In my defense two of these are for Noel! Three are a repurchased of bombs I've tried before and one is a new one for me! Clockwise starting from the blue robot: "ickle baby bot" (for Noel), "Twilight" (loveee the colors and the scent is so soothing and calming for night time baths), "sex bomb" (probably one of the most popular and best sellers, love it), "pink" (my new purchase), "space girl" (for Noel, and I told him it's called space boy if not he wouldn't have wanted it, but I know he will love this one), and finally "Pheonix rising" (again I adore the smell and colors of this one as well!)

 Finally the bubble bars!!!!!! These little guys seriously make the bath sooo much fun, even for an adult. I especially love how this fills up the tub with so many bubbles. I'm totally guilty of making bubble beards in the tub! The best part is the these last you a few uses. You can just break off a piece and save rest and you still get bubble overload. Below I have (left - right) "french kiss" (a fav of mine), "sunnyside" (my absolute favorite bubble bar, it literally feels like you're taking a bath in liquid gold and it's super glittery also), and "dorothy" (my first time trying this one)

Let me know if you guys have ever been to Lush before and what's your favorite product? Or what would you love to try? Below I'm leaving you guys with the video of my fall makeup tutorial that I posted earlier this week. I've been obsessed with this makeup look lately. I hope you like it too!

Love you guys, have a great weekend!!!!
