Lush Cosmetics Ickle Baby Bot Bath Bomb Review with Video

Happy Tuesday!

Today I am reviewing Lush's Ickle Baby Bot bath bomb. 
You can purchase it here for only $3.95.
I can't really pin point what I thought the smell was but on Lush's website it is described as:
"Ickle Baby Bot has been designed to mesmerize the senses with ray guns of lavender, chamomile, and sandalwood."

I don't have anything really exciting to say about this particular bath bomb. I've been wanting to try it for quite some time now so I finally just bought it. I'm happy I did but probably wouldn't repurchase it. I thought it smelt good but didn't make my skin super soft like the rest of the bath bomb's I've tried. 
When we were in Philly for the Philadelphia Eagles game I also picked up two more items which I haven't used yet. But when I do I will review them. 

The video below is of Lush Cosmetic's Ickle Baby Bot Bath Bomb.

Have a great night!

Weekend Recap: Lorac Mega Pro Palette 2, Pumpkin Pie, Fall Decor

Happy Monday!

I don't know how truly happy I am about this week but I am trying to keep a smile on my face. It's a busy time for me at work. :(
Friday was date night for Hubby & I. We went to Red Lobster for their endless shrimp and then off to the movies. We saw Scorch Trails since we both like the Maze so much. Scorch Trails was really good except I thought it was kind of long. Other than that, I highly recommend it. 
Last week was also another bad week for me, so when I saw this picture below it made me smile.

Unfortunately, I didn't do much Saturday because I had to work. So I have nothing to share. 

Sunday I woke up to an e-mail from Ulta stating that the Lorac Mega Pro Palette was on pre-launch for Platinum members for one day only. I wanted to share on my blog but didn't have a chance, it sold out within a couple of hours. 
This was truly the highlight of my day! I cannot wait to get it!!  

Philadelphia Eagles played on Sunday so I made Hubby & I some pumpkin cheesecake pie. First one of the season!

After the game (We won!), I deep cleaned our kitchen. I mopped the floors, I emptied out the cabinets and cleaned them. I got rid of a bunch of stuff. Plus I brought out our new Keurig!
This thing is pretty impressive, it's touchscreen! Who would have thought?! Even though I don't drink coffee, I drink a ton of hot chocolate in the winter time - has anyone tried Keurig's Swiss hot chocolate?!

I also brought out more of my fall decor. I dusted the top shelf and added the two owls my mom bought me. On the left, in the clear vase, I replaced the cupcake liners with a bunch of small pumpkins and fake leaves. It's the small things that can really transform a place from summer to fall. 
Have a great night!

Fall Nails - Zoya Giovanna

Happy Thursday!

Happy 2nd day of Fall!
I can't believe it's already fall, I can't believe it's already the end of September, 2015 is almost over!

Today I am sharing and reviewing my first fall nail look. It's very basic and plan but I am loving this color. 

I actually received this color in an Ipsy bag. It's a color I would have never picked up myself but I found when I put it on, I actually really love the color. That's why I like being subscribed to the Ipsy bag every month, it's products I typically wouldn't pick up myself. It gives me the opportunity to try new and different products.

The color is Giovanna by Zoya.
You can't see it with this iPhone picture but it actually had a sparkle to it. 
I wore this color to an Eagles game I went to recently and it really matches the color of the Philadelphia Eagles!

Only down side - the color stains your nails!
Now my nails have a ugly green tint to them. But that's ok nothing a little baking soda and peroxide can't fix. 

Have a great and cozy evening!

Wedding Wednesday: Honeymoon Day 5 in Negril Jamaica, Couples Resort

Happy Wedding Wednesday!

Today I am sharing highlights from Day 5 of our honeymoon in Negril, Jamaica at the Couples Resort. 
Click on the following days to view:

Sporting my cheap straw fedora from Charlotte Russe, Marshalls cover up, Victoria Secrets bikini. 
Guys! I sported an itsy bitsy bikini bottom. I was so nervous wearing it, Hubby didn't seem to mind! Definitely something I don't typically do but you only go on your honeymoon once!

Believe it or not, I have never made a tie-dye shirt. So when they offered a tie dye class I decided to go! What do you guys think? Did I do a good job? Haha.

Our shirts on the line as we ate lunch. 

The resort also offered a free jewelry making class so I went and met some really nice people. This is how my bracelet turned out. What do you guys think?

Afterwards we just lounged around on the chairs, had a couple of drinks and just watched the water. It was SO relaxing. 

They had real lime tree's there! No one else seems to find this amazing but me. haha. 

We booked the glass bottom boat ride for that afternoon, we were the only ones to go on it, so we had our own private tour which was pretty cool! We saw all kinds of stuff, stingrays, coral reefs, etc. 

These look so good don't they?! Well they were as hard as a brick. Yuck.

We watched the sunset as we waited for our night time snorkeling adventure. (Which by the way, was the most amazing experience of my life!)

After night time snorkeling we quickly showered and got dressed because that night their was lobster being served at all the restaurants. 

We were expecting small lobster tails because it's included in the price of your stay, but they were actually really big!

Shortly after we ate we went to bed. It was a long day.

Weekend Recap: Ipsy, Philadelphia, Lush, Eagles Game, Nails

Happy Tuesday!

Today I am recapping my fun-filled weekend. 

On Friday I received my September Ipsy bag. I'm looking forward to testing out these products! Looks like a good bag!


Saturday was a relaxing day for hubby & I. We didn't have much planned for the day. 
I wore a sweater hubby got me for Christmas from Charlotte Russe, black tank top, Forever 21 shorts, Michael Kors watch and Kohls flip flops. Easy and comfortable enough to walk around the city.  

Painted my nail green for the Eagles game. 

Our view from the Sheraton in center city Philadelphia. 

We did walk to Lush because they just released the sparkly pumpkin and lord of misrule bath bomb. 

I also picked up some cupcakes from Philly Cupcakes. (Best cupcakes in my opinion!)

We were all bored so we decided to take a trip to King of Prussia. Surprisingly I didn't purchase much. 


Sunday was game day!!!! 

Hubby & I tailgating for the Philadelphia Eagles game. 

We were front row in the end zone!!! 

We also met Swoop!!!!
Such a fun weekend!

Have a great night
