The Best Easter Egg

It’s almost that wonderful time of the year when eating chocolate is not frowned upon!

But if you’re still feeling a little guilty about tucking into a giant chocolate egg, or want to gift somebody an alternative egg this year, the Which Came First? bath bomb from Lush is a perfect little treat.

An indulgent and rather large egg, this bath bomb is infused with lemon and grapefruit — two of my favourite fragrances — so I knew that this would be a hit! Naturally, I was attracted to its beautiful appearance first. Which Came First? is a different shape to the usual spherical bath bomb, but an obvious choice for this time of year. It’s covered in a vibrant, sunshine yellow to make you smile instantly. Who doesn’t love the sun?! As I mentioned earlier, this bath bomb is rather large in size which I found intriguing — imagine the bubbles!

Until the lovely store assistant told me that there was a second bath bomb inside the egg, I had no idea! That’s three bath bombs in one, all for £6.95: one for the sunny side of the egg, one for the pink side, and one for the sweet little chick inside. I don’t think this could get any better.

The combination of lemon and grapefruit has to be one of my favourite fragrances. Perfectly sweet, but not too citrusy or overpowering. There’s also a hint of vanilla to blend everything together, making this a truly indulgent spring treat!

I mean, how cute is this little hatchling? The perfect Easter egg, if you ask me!

Have you found a nice alternative egg this year? I’d love to hear about it! 🙂

Liquid Chrome

For this week’s post I was once again swayed by a little marketing email from Barry M!

With Christmas just around the corner, I wanted to invest in a new festive gold nail polish. As if they’d read my mind, I received an email from Barry M about their new liquid chrome nail varnish. I knew immediately that this was the one!

I absolutely love the packaging of Barry M’s nail polish. Being square, they fit perfectly in my nail polish storage, neatly lined up and in colour order. But gold was a colour I was missing. Being Barry M, I had no doubts that this would be a good, strong nail polish, and so didn’t hesitate to buy Bright Lights!

I can’t begin to explain how reflective this product is. The end product is the closest I’ve seen to a chrome powder effect in a polish. Naturally, this features the same amazing brush that comes with all Barry M polish. It’s slightly curved and tapered at the end to create the perfect shape for painting the bottom of the nail bed. This little brush makes painting your nails at home so, so easy! (Even with your other hand!)

While I was there, I also picked up the rose version of Liquid Chrome, Razzle Dazzle. It’s a gorgeous rose gold with the same chrome-effect finish as Bright Lights, and is perfect for any season. I’ve found that when painting my nails, this formula does dry slightly matte, showing any bumps on your natural nails. I recommend a little buff out first, followed by a top coat to ensure a smooth, reflective finish.

I still can’t stop looking at the polish itself! It’s so satisfying!
