Style | Last drops of Summer

Thursday, 20 October 2016 | No comments


Autumn is definitely my most favourite season of all. I love the changing colours of the trees, cooler mornings and the anticipation of Christmas! However, there is still a small part of me clinging onto Summer. I'm still going bared legged, forever forgetting to bring a jacket to work and basically still dressing like its July/August.
One new addition to my wardrobe to help me transition slowly from Summer to Autumn are these culottes.

As soon as I saw these I knew I wanted them, they reminded me of a pair I had when I was a child. The youthful me had bright red ones which were worn at every opportunity I could. A vivid memory is of me pairing them with a blue spotty shirt and navy blue knee high socks, I'll leave you to picture that in your heads!

These are from ASOS, I got them about a month ago along with a few other items. I'm wearing a size 24 here but wish I had gone for a 22. The jersey material starts to stretch after a couple of wears, making them slightly baggy around the waist and thighs. This hasn't stopped me wearing them though, more for casual wear rather than work. I am on the hunt for a smarter pair for work so if you have tried any please let me know!

Today's post is about the second part of the intuMK challenge. Lush has become so well known in the past few years, but if you haven't heard much about them and you want to know more just take a look at their website.
Lush produce various products such as creams, shower gels, hair care and of course their infamous bath bombs. 100% vegetarian, cruelty free, affordable and handmade, not only good for your skin but also your bank balance!

I'm a huge fan of their hair masks, solid shampoos and foot scrub but, I am yet to try a bath bomb. I know, a bit late to the party. However, I was lucky enough to receive a Creamy Candy bubble bar and a Melting Marshmallow Moment bath oil in my goody bag. I can't wait to try these out one weekend, leave the housework in Mr Cs capable hands and have an extra long pamper session!
Once I had a quick break after doing task one, I headed into the Lush store. I had to find the perfect berry lip colour and a hair mask to combat the cold weather. As soon as I saw the task I knew straight away that I would be able to rave about my favourite Lush product.

I started using this hair mask last year and it has become a firm favourite of mine. If you have dry, frizzy, uncooperative hair like mine, you really need this in your life. I use this every two weeks in the summer and then once a week in the winter, leaving it for the recommended amount of time (20mins) with a shower cap on to really let it warm up and nourish my hair. I then use the solid shampoo bar, Jason and the Argan Oil, another favourite of mine and I'm left with soft, frizz free hair.

I chose this lip tint, It started with a kiss. I've never tried the lip tints from Lush before but this colour really stood out for me. To be honest, its only recently that I've started wearing a red lip. One swipe gives a subtle wash of colour and a couple of extra swipes give the perfect winter red berry colour.


It feels very different from your normal lip balm/tint. The texture is slightly thick, crumbly and solid, almost like their body butter bars. One of the main ingredients is Shea butter along with extra virgin coconut oil, so not only are you getting a nice pop of colour but your lips are also getting a treatment and protection from the cold weather.


One other thing I tried was using this under a matte red lipstick, no more dry lips and that extra bit of staying power!

These lip scrubs are next on my list to try, got to keep my lips smooth for date night!

Thank you to intu Milton Keynes for a fantastic evening! You can read the first part of my task here and don't forget to follow intuMK on twitter and #intuMKBloggers.
