Mini Lush Haul

Went to Lush this past Sunday set on four things I wanted to purchase. My favorite cleanser of all time Let the Good Times Roll, No Drought dry shampoo, and two bath bombs. I'm happy to report I got just what I wanted! Isn't it great when you go to a specific store with certain things you want to buy and you are able to buy everything without a hassle?

Dragon's Egg (Top Bath Bomb)
Fizzbanger (Bottom Bath Bomb)

I've reviewed Let the Good Times Roll here, by the way. It's my all-time favorite cleanser. I absolutely hate cleansers that smell soapy and chemical-y and when I ran out of this cleanser back in February, I wanted to purchase it again then found out it hadn't been brought back as a permanent item (it was announced it was going to, but for whatever reason it didn't). Now it IS back for good and I'm so happy.
I bought No Drought because I've been wanting a dry shampoo. I've tried it once but wasn't too sure on the results so I will try it again another day.
Bath bombs! These are my first bath bombs ever! Well, one of them is for me. I got Dragon's Egg for me and Fizzbanger for my mom's birthday bag. She loves baths so I hope she will  like this. The Dragon's Egg bath bomb smells SO good and citrus-y. The Fizzbanger smells like crisp green apples, cinnamon, and a hint of lime. My mom does like those scents so I hope she'll like this bath bomb (like me, she's never tried one).

I will make sure to review No Drought and Dragon's Egg once I use them!

Friday Favorites: Etsy Finds!

'Frozen Banana' Arrested Development Bag - kateslittlestore
Sterling Silver Blue Topaz Ring - fifthheaven
'Damn Fine Coffee' Twin Peaks Brooch - kateslittlestore

Haven't posted in ages! Mostly due to laziness. I've also been getting lots of clothes, which I find difficult to photograph since lighting is terrible in my house. I'll try to compile a large post of clothes and accessories I've gotten recently and make a separate post on vinyls/novelties and a separate post on beauty/makeup products I've purchased. Anyway, onto the Etsy finds!

Isn't that canvas tote cute? I really want a canvas tote for when I want to carry simple things like a book, my phone, keys, and other small things! This one would be perfect, I think! The ring (and that Etsy store in general) is something I've been drooling over lately! I love simple rings. Well, I love MOST rings, but the rings from this Etsy store are so beautiful I may have to splurge and buy one for myself! The pin is one of my favorite quotes from Twin Peaks from my favorite character from the show!

I'll make sure to get right onto photographing all of my recent purchases and making the posts ASAP!

The Body Shop | x - x
(review coming for these as well)

Long Winter Soap Co. | Both no longer available, but the shop updates regularly

Just a little review for the Long Winter Farm items~ The Honeyed Mango lip balm is very moisturizing and leaves my lips so soft. I'm not crazy about the scent, but I don't hate it. It's more Honey than it is Mango (I wish it was vice versa). The Almond Oat bar of soap is just... amazing. It's all I've been using lately! I've abandoned all of my Lush products and only been using this. It leaves my skin squeaky clean but still so soft! My skin has been improving so much after using this and using one of my Fortune Cookie Soap body butters after. I can't recommend this enough! And it's a big bar that lathers like a DREAM!
