Last Minute Easter Gift Ideas from LUSH!

Press Sample
So Easter is TOMORROW and I still have Rylan's basket, goodies & candy in the Target bag. Whoops! If you're looking for some last minute Easter gift ideas, LUSH has you covered! These goodies are available in all LUSH stores now, so hop to it! ;)

Golden Egg - The most luxurious bath bomb ever! Combining a bath bomb & a bath melt, it's a first class treat! The exterior is a moisturizing cocoa butter and has a fizzy bath bomb center. The entire egg is dusted in delicate golden luster (Which got all over my carpet haha)

Brightside Bubble Bar - This bubble bar makes me SO happy! When you crumble it into your tub, the water turns a beautiful fire orange color that is sure to make you smile! It has a divine citrus scent.

Carrot Soap - No this does NOT smell like a carrot! It has a tropical blend of sicilian lemon oil & fruity buchu oil that smells incredible. VERY moisturizing and lasts a really long time!

Immaculate Eggception Egg - THREE bath products in one! Once you crack this open, inside is another smaller bath bomb. Pretty awesome! And the scent? Grapefruit & vanilla! Yum! 


Next up we have the Funny Bunny Gift Set!  I actually have some of these goodies put away for Rylan's basket. He's going to have a blast with the moldable soap!




Included : 

Fluffy Egg Bath Bomb
Bunny Bubble Bar (2)
Bunch Of Carrots Reusable Bubble Bar
Green Fun
Honey I Washed The Kids Soap


These would make AMAZING gifts for Easter for any age! This is probably my favorite launch to date!

Vanda - Exclusive shade to the BeautySoFly shop. This polish is a light medium orchid purple when cold and transitions to a gorgeous light sky blue when warm. I noticed when this was transitioning, there was a glimpse of pink in the mid line & shimmer. These two shades are PERFECT for each other. Photos below show three coats. 




Color Me Purple - Semi tri-color purple thermal. When cold the polish is a rich royal purple shade and when warm it transforms into a beautiful shimmery lavender. Photos below show three coats.

Tanya Burr by eye CANDY Lip Gloss Swatches & Review

Press Sample
Beauty blogger & vlogger, Tanya Burr, has taken the beauty world by storm and has released her very own makeup line called 'Tanya Burr Lips & Nails'. Tanya was one of the very first people I subscribed to on YouTube and she has been a huge inspiration of mine. When word got out that she was coming out with her own polish & lipgloss, I knew I had to get my hands on a few to test them out.


Tanya's line can only be found in the UK right now, but if you shop at Pom Shop LTD, they ship to the US! And I may add, their shipping is VERY quick!  There are 12 lip glosses & 10 polishes in this line. Unfortunately, I don't have the polishes to share with you but I do have 4 glosses!

I love that the back is personalized with a little note & signature from Tanya!


The packaging on these glosses is very sleek & chic. They contain a flat doe foot applicator and smell absolutely AMAZING.  They have a really delicious fruity scent to them.  From what I read online, all of the glosses & polishes were named after some of Tanya's favorite things!

Top to bottom : 

Afternoon Tea
Exotic Island
Just Peachy
Vampire Kiss


L-R - Afternoon Tea, Exotic Island, Just Peachy & Vampire Kiss


These glosses are INCREDIBLY pigmented and creamy. Just one swipe and it's full opacity. They have a 3-4 hour wear time on me (Without eating or drinking) 

If you can get your hands on these, I would absolutely recommend trying a few shades out! I definitely have a few other colors in mind that I want to grab! 

What are your thoughts on the Tanya Burr glosses?

Price : $6.99 GBP

Zahra Beauty - Quad Diamond Plus Review

Press Sample
I'll be honest. I'm a makeup hoarder. I'm pretty sure you guys already know that. When Zahra Beauty asked if I wanted to review a beauty box, at first I chose the smaller version and then I woke up and realized 'Um hello!? You need SPACE' so I went with the Quad Diamond Plus. This is not your average acrylic beauty box ladies! This thing is MASSIVE!  I don't even have it all the way filled to the brim & I could probably fit the entire Sephora franchise in it.

Measuring 14" L x 12" W x 17" H, this will cure all of your storage needs!  I have this placed on the corner of my Ikea Alex desk and couldn't lift it to fit it in my lightbox (Nor do I think it would even fit) So my photos are going to look a little crazy. My apologies.. but you'll get the drift!

The Quad Diamond Plus has 4 drawers plus a top lidded compartment. When you order from Zahra beauty, you also get the option of what colored crystal knobs you'd like (I of course chose pink)


Bottom Drawer - This is where I have all of my smaller palettes. I left the dividers in because they all fit perfectly! You also have the option to take the dividers out and customize them however you choose! 


Drawer #2  - Lips, lips lips! (And the occasional eye products). I wanted to put my most used drugstore items in here so I would remember to reach for them. 


Drawer #3 - PALETTES!!! (This isn't even HALF my palette collection, but definitely the ones I gravitate towards the most) I chose to remove the dividers out of this drawer.


Drawer #5 - This one isn't filled up as much as the others, so I definitely have room to grow! 


Top Lid Compartment - I'm not sure what I'm going to put in this top area. I'm thinking my MAC blush collection so it's easy access! I don't have anything sitting on top of this at the moment. 


Pink Crystal Knobs 


How EPIC is this organizer!? Seriously! I love that it's clear, comes with dividers that you can customize and is so LARGE! If you're in the market for something to hold your ENTIRE collection, I would definitely recommend investing in an organizer from Zahra Beauty. They have a ton of different sizes as well! 

The quality & customer service is up to par and gets a stamp of approval from me!

{Lifestyle Post} Juice In The Box Review

Disclosure: I got this product as part of an advertorial.

Being a mom of a toddler, you ALWAYS have to be prepared. When I was contacted by the company Juice In The Box to share my thoughts on their new product, I was hesitant at first because I wasn't sure if this was something I absolutely needed in my life, but now I shall eat my words! Plus, I thought it would be fun to get my son involved in 'Mommy's work' on her blog!

 My son absolutely LOVES his juice boxes but I hate spending money on them because they are all so full of sugar and they aren't exactly convenient to tote around with me when we're out and about places.  Plus, he tends to squeeze them and then liquid gets everywhere. Totally not fun to clean up. 

Juice In The Box is 100% spill proof, made from indestructible Eastman Tritan and gives YOU the option of what goes inside it. 

It comes in 2 pieces which are both dishwasher safe.  I will say, if you don't have a dishwasher to put this in, it can be a little difficult to clean properly. 


You can fill up to 8oz of liquids and there is an angled polypropylene straw for easy drinking. 


The lid snaps shut completely and there is a push button when your child wants to access his or her beverage. My son had a tough time pushing the button to open it back up, so I wish this was a little easier for his fingers. 


The Juice In The Box comes in 5 bright fun colors and retails for $11.99 USD. 

I think this is going to be absolutely perfect for on the go, vacations, road trips and trips to the park during the Spring & Summer! 

Is this something you would use for your child? 




I received one or more of the products mentioned above for free using Tomoson.com. Regardless, I only recommend products or services I use personally and believe will be good for my readers.
