I was thrilled when I received the invitation from Lush to attend their Leicester Christmas Event, and the night itself didn’t disappoint! It was my first proper blogger event, and it was wonderful to finally meet the people behind the blogs I’d been reading for months. Before the event I met up with the lovely Izzy from A Dose of Chatter and Jess from Cakes Crumbs and Pages and we went to Turtle Bay to make the most of the food (and the cocktails). We walked up to LUSH after a good old catch up, and were greeted with personalised lanyards at the door, mine ‘Blogger – Kezia’ made me feel very official!
The downstairs part of the LUSH store was chock-a-block full of their new Christmas and Halloween products, and with a lovely assistant demonstrating bath bomb upon bath bomb, it really was a feast for the eyes!
After perusing all the new products, we headed upstairs to the party room to make our own LUSH goodies. There was a huge selfie wall (which we 100% made the most of) and some delicious cupcakes to munch on. We could either make a blue, fresh smelling bath bomb or a pink, sweet bubble bar. I made the bubble bar as -cry- I don’t have a bath, and I shaped it into a very questionable heart!
I made the most of being able to smell and test all of the Christmassy goodness on offer, and made a list of my top 3 that I’ll definitely be getting nearer the festive season.
- The Magic of Christmas – Reusable Bubble Bar
This is my absolute favourite thing from the entire new collection, it smells exactly like Christmas, all cinnamony and warming. It’s also so glittery and I was smelling it so much I kept getting it on my nose! At least I was embracing the festive spirit right?
One of the lovely LUSH staff introduced me to the Sugar Plum Fairy lip scrub and oh my goodness, it smells incredible. It reminds me of hot Ribena, which is one of my favourite drinks to have when it starts to get colder. I actually bought this on the night for my brother’s girlfriend for her birthday as she loves LUSH lip scrubs! I’ll definitely be heading back to get one of my own.
I didn’t get a photo of this one (as I was probably too busy testing it out), but I got a tester of this in my goodie bag and it’s incredible. It’s so thick and luxurious, and foams up really well. The smell is also very very orangey, which means that it manages to properly wake me up in the morning!
I really did have such a lovely evening, and I would definitely recommend heading down to the Leicester store as all the staff were so welcoming and friendly. It was a great first bloggers event and I can’t wait for the next!
