As a change from all the reviews, I wanted to share all the lovely autumn things I’ve been getting through my letterbox. I love this time of year, all things pumpkin and spooky.
I stocked up on the new Lush Halloween range. The monster, pumpkin and pumpkin bubble bar I’ve had before and are old favourites. The cat is new. It’s called Bewitched and smells amazing (like blackberries), lots and lots of bubbles and makes your bath a kind of murky grey/black. I will say murky black is views with great suspicion by my youngest who has autism and thinks all things Lush are tools of the devil because they contain “bits”. I haven’t tried the pink pumpkin but as it looks, it’s quite a sweet and girly fragrance, with lots of glitter to annoy the boys. It also doesn’t have grapefruit oil for those who missed out on the original pumpkin bubble bar due allergies.
I tried out the “Ectoplasm”, one of the new jelly bombs. It’s a lovely, fruity and happy scent. I wasn’t sure how I’d feel about my bath being jellified. It is how I imagine bathing in frog spawn feels but in a good way (!). It creates a layer on the bath that feels smooth and soft on your skin (I’m trying not to say slimy). I liked it. I did not like the cleaning of the bloody jelly out of my bath afterwards.
Oooh the soap is called hedgewitch, which is like my user name for so many things I needed it. I haven’t tried it yet, but it’s a fruit, autumn scent. What isn’t in the picture is the Black Rose lip tint (because my husband threw it in the bin and we had to fish it out later). It’s a fruity black lip tint until you out it on it’s a bright pink. It’s very nice indeed.
Other things that make me smile. My lovely husband bought me this Bettlejuice inspired notebook and a pen that’s black like my soul, to keep my blogging notes in, from Little Booteek.
For extra brownie points, he also bought me an Evil Scarecrow T.Shirt. Evil Scarecrow . If you haven’t heard of this band, and like your metal with humour then give them a try. I saw them for the first time in January and even though they have now been on the festival circuit they still do small venues. The audience participation is so much fun and if a band who sing about their running makeup and robots don’t deserve a listen I think you’re on the wrong blog.
I’m not being paid for any of these reviews (sadly), just sharing the love. So embrace the love of all things pumpkins and on that note, goodbye with pumpkin pie.
