Lush 2021 Advent Calendar

 This year Lush has two advent calendars, you have:

The Whopper - The Lush Advent Calendar retailing at £185 (currently sold out)

and 

12 Days Of Christmas which retails at £75lush advent calendar

I have this in my hands and my study smells blooming incredible. Have a read of my review and unboxing of this delicious smelling advent. 

So unlike The Lush Advent Calendar, this focuses on 12 days of Christmas. Stop reading now if you want to be surprised you can purchase here.

True to Lush the box and ribbon are made from 100% recycled material and so pretty you will use again. 

There are no small samples in this box its more or less full size all the way.

Contents: 
Day 1Yog Nog Shower Gel 100g -  a little sparkle and who doesn't want to smell like Christmas every single morning. 
Day 2Orange Pop Bath Bomb - Instead of putting cloves in an orange just fill your bath with citrus vibes.
Day 3Baked Alaska Soap 100g - One of my fave desserts and the lemon and grapefruit scents will be just as good. 
Day 4: Jolly Shower Gel 100g - you literally cant have enough shower gel, and with cinnamon, cloves and orange.
Day 5: Golden Pineapple Lip Scrub - a great stocking filler.
Day 6: The Golden Pudding Bath Bomb - OMG its a Christmas Pudding bath bomb
Day 7: Candy Cane Reusable Bubble Bar - I think my son is going to love this just as much as me and the bath will be pink. 
Day 8: Lime Bounty Body Butter 45g - Okay so this one might not be full size...but great for travelling.
Day 9: Mini Cinnamon Roll Bubble Bar - I want to know who thought of this bubble bar, a cinnamon roll, genius.
Day 10: The North Pole Bubble Bar - so many bubbles and a cute north pole sign 
Day 11: Golden Pear Body Scrub - a body scrub bar, don't mind if I do, never used one of these before, be warned your hands will be covered in glitter! 
Day 12: Snowman Dreaming Bath Bomb - a white snowman, NO a very subtle rainbow I think this needs to be the first one I use!

Toys "R" Us back in the UK, what we know so far!

If you drive around the UK you will probs still spot an old Toys "R" Us - is was a sad day when they announced their closure.
toys r us
But they are BACK...now we do not know too much but WHP Global, the parent company for Toys "R" Us and Babies "R" Us are coming back to the UK online and in physical retail units.

They have been successful in launching in Australia and I believe they are also planning to hit the US partnering with Macy's.

Well done WHP Global I for one cant wait for you to be back and wonder if it can compete with Smyths the only similar large scale toy shop around. 

The launch is already underway, looking to launch online in 2022 and physical retail stores in 2022 / 2023.

I hope the new stores will have some focus on smaller businesses from the UK.

Three Artists to invest in for Christmas

These are not pocket change prints but art that you need to spend your hard earned pennies on usually more than a months pay check but in the hopes that you not only have a beautiful piece of art for home but something that is going up in value and not just stuck in a bank.

These are three artists I would love to invest in.



                                          DOUG HYDE

Doug or the man behind 'the smile' was one of the first artists I really fell in love with, I remember spotting it at a  house when I was at university and thinking one day I will buy one of those. Doug has recently launched his new collection and each print just makes me smile.

If you are based in Lincoln you can meet the artist at Trent Galleries on 16th October.

ERIN ROTHSTEIN

This hyperrealister Canadian painter grabbed my attention last year with her pieces centred around food and fashion. With fun 'art' treasure hunts and mystery boxes I cant wait to get my hands on one of these for my kitchen.
