Beauty Special: Lush Christmas

Hi guys,

Im so happy to present you the Lush Christmas collection! As you know already, I love their products and Im able to show you their special collections from time to time. As always, I bought some of the products with my own money and got some from Lush directly to test them.


Last year they only had the normal body conditioners, but this year they decided to do all of them in a solid form without any packaging too! I loved the idea, less waste and more fun in the shower. It`s used the same way as the normal ones, just rub it on your body and shower it off to moisturize your body. Every time one of mine runs out I`m kinda sad, I always forget to use body lotion when I get out of the shower so this is perfect for me and it`s by far my favorite Lush product. This one especially smells like a sweet mint sugar cane, it feels extremly refreshing on your skin and I was suprised how long the smell stayed on.




This one turned the water into the most beautiful blue shade I`ve ever seen! All topped with a shit ton of glitter, it looked like the sky filled with stars and smelled like heaven. It probably turned into one of my favorite Lush bath bombs I have ever tried, first I wanted to leave it at the store but decided to try it anyway and oh it was worth it. Definately a secret favorite!



When I got the press flyer, this was the first item that caught my eye. I mean we all know Im obsessed with soaps and this one is freaking pear shaped, smells like pie and got glitter in it, sure Im in. Sadly it was sold out online and in store when I tried, you can imagine how happy I was when I had it in my package from Lush. 


Snow Fairy Solid Shower Gel

Ok so if you don`t like Snow Fairy, you can skip the next items cause I went slightly crazy. This is the best smell ever and I got so many items so I can use it all year around until it is released again. But let`s start with the solid shower gel, it feels a bit squishy which I actually like, same goes with it bottle like shape. It smells exactly like the normal shower gel, you just rub it on your skin and wash it off. I really like the package lesse products, for me the smell stays on your skin for a longer period and you can use the full amount, while with the bottles there is always a bit that stayes at the bottom.




I love Snow Fairy, I love Jelly Bombs and I love glitter. I mean what more could you wish for? No words needed, just go and get it! The slime is the same as with the Halloween one and your whole flat will smell like candy cotton heaven afterwards.



The same product as above, but this is the packed version. I got the small version, so will use it while travelling, their minis are perfect for this purpose by the way, I`ve used nothing else while on the road for years!



Some people break their bath bombs in two halfs to get more out of them, I don`t. It alread takes a lot for me to use this twice, but you defiantely can! Just strike through the water a few times with the wand and you will get amazing pink water and tons of foam to play with. I used it while baby boy was with us and he loved it too.



The normal version of the Body Conditioner, awesome as always. I did a Review of it last year, you can find it here.



This soap smells like a pine tree, like a ski weekend in the mountains, like an evening in front of a fire place with a glas of wine. I mean, it does have a great unique smell and looks really pretty too, what else could you wish for?!



Also a bomb that suprised me entirely. Such a strong, Christmas smell that stays for hours and bathing water that changes its Color from orange to red. I have to confess this already my second one, I loved it so much that I had to get another one for the time when Im more in the Christmas mood, with some cookies and mulled wine it`s heaven on earth.


Santa`s Belly Shower Jelly

I was so sure that I reviewed this before but can`t find anything. The shower jellys are so much fun, they keep the smell really well. I always got Problems showering with them cause I`m clumsy and the slip off my hands but my boyfriend for example loves them so much. The glitter on top disappears after a few uses, so you won`t be left with a golden body ( probably the reason he likes it that much haha).



Hope you liked this small Lush Christmas overview, 

Kisses,

I wanna live lost in the moment

Hi guys,

How have you all been? I thought last year was a lot of change, a lot going on and challenging, but this one tops it all. Hopefully soon some of it will get cleared and a really power sucking time will be over, and I have to admit Im so tired right now.

What lays before me keeps me going, what I`m doing it for pushs me through the darkest episodes I have ever been through in my whole life, and my dream is what keeps me sane during this mess of insanity and hate.

Beauty Special: Lush Halloween 2017

Hi guys,

It`s that time of the year again: Halloween! 
The only month of the year when people don`t look at me like I`m a total weirdo cause they think I`m dressed up as a witch haha. 
So like every year, Lush has a special collection for this occasion and it`s fantastic as always. I got the chance to test some soaps and bathboms for you, so here is my review, I added the things i bought on my own too:


This one was so pleasing for my dark soul! It turns the water into a dark, black color and has a very subtile but nice smell, it didn`t produce the crazy amount of foam some other Lush bombs do but it was definately enough. I let my boyfriends son try it and he absolutely loved it too, white foam over black water and it crumbled very easily. Not sure if they changed the formula, but I had some bombs before that took way longer to fully emerge into the water so this was really satisfing too.



This bathbomb is the most halloweeny out of this years collection. I love the look of it, it turns the water into an orange Color as predicted but what I liked most was the fact that the smell stayed in the air for a long time. The smell is described as american candy, but for me for that I missed the famous pumpkin spice note. It does smell like fall though and in a really Relaxing way, so if you`re looking for that definately go with the pumkin bomb!



A classic! And I was devasted that I never tried it before, so I had to get this one. It spreads really slowly, which I liked in this cause so you can fully enjoy the color change in the water. The first ten minutes it`s a strong green, but when the shell is fully gone, it turns into a dark bloody red. The smell was as gorgeous as everyon described it, definately a candidate to be bought as a shower gel too! They now have a solid shower creme for almost all of the once they have as a gel too, I`m so looking forward to try them, definately keep an eye out!



My very first Jelly Bomb, hell I was excited to try this! There are so many new, special products at Lush that it will probably take forever for me to try them all. Despite seeing Videos on YouTube were people had problems with the shell, it disappeared quite fast and left a nice, thin slimy surface. I heard that some other Jelly Bombs produce thicker slimes, so I`m definately trying this soon too but for the beginning I really liked it. Quite a strong smell that stayed, which is always a plus point. I just wouldn`t recommend to stay in the bathtube forever cause the slime gets dry on your skin and hair which is quite weird feeling.



Im such a sucker for solid soaps. It got the usual block size from Lush, but with a gorgeous color transformation from green to red, slightly like Lord of Misrule. Nice smell, you can use it forever
( one Piece of Lush soap takes over 3 months to be used at mine and I use it around 10 times a day at least! ) and looks great on your soap display too.


Hope you liked my little review, check out there christmas collection and there new stuff which is quite awesome too! So many products without packaging which is absolutely great and many new, crazy types of products are availalbe now worldwide.

Kisses,

Doomsday

Hi guys,

I love These photos. If you follow me for some time, you know Im no lover of colorful Outfits, and this is really, really red for my taste. As much as I still dressed it down with black, I adore the edgy vibes These shoot has and how strong some of them are. We really killed it on this day, how you feel in your clothes makes such a huge difference on how a photo turns out. As always, a huge thank you to my dear friend Selina, who takes most of my photos, for making my visions possible as much as I hope I can help you realise yours.

Thoughts: We grow and we change

Hi guys,

I already told you that my life went a bit crazy the past half year, so I thought it was time for another "thoughts" post.

We change.
We all do, it`s what makes life interesting and what gives us the power to continue, to follow our dreams. Im a big representer of doing whatever you want, to be who you are and to listen to yourself to do what feels good. It`s my personal state of freedom, I want to travel, to study, to be independent and to be able to put all I want, into one life.
But what happens if you change. Not what you stand for or how you want to live your life, but if you start to be willing to adjust your future in a way, you never thought you could or would want to? If you feel like you betray your younger self, like you`re now lying to your friends when you say what you used to say. When it`s hard to describe that your still exactly the same person, with the same view of life and the same plans, dreams, but just wouldn`t mind them a bit different. But that you still would never give up what you always wanted, or betray what you stand for. That it`s not giving up something, but to add something else, to all you already had and wanted. It`s hard and fucks with my mind, and it`s a lot to deal with, even without other people being involved in it. And it especially makes it hard when people you open up to, tell you that you wouldn`t be who you were a year ago, just because you`re changing but in a complete other part of yourself, that doesnt in the slightest affect the one that was and will always be there. The one you will always live and fight for, just in a bigger range and sharing it. Change is beautiful and it doesnt make someone less who they are, it just makes them a bit wiser.
We change. We add and adjust. 
We still are who we are.
Ourselves.

Travel: Roadtrip Portugal

Hi guys,

God I feel so bad. This trip was already two months ago and I haven`t posted anything about it yet, life was just crazy. If you follow me on Instagram you may saw that I did not only scored myself my soulmate, but with him a beautiful little boy. We moved together a month ago like I mentioned before and it was all really on short terms but I woulnd`t want it any other way cause its
just absolutely perfect. But enough cheesy talk, let`s talk about how we explored the beautiful country of Portugal!

First of all, we flew from Zurich to Lisbon. We stayed in town for two nights, wandered through the city and ate these amazing pastries called Pastel de Nata. For the night we chose the Sunset Destination Hostel which is placed inside of a train station and right next to the river, it was literally the most beautiful hostel I have ever seen! Like all european cities, Lisbon is also crowded with tourists but cause we travelled during high season in june, we expected nothing else. What surprised us a bit more, was the fact that we got offered drugs of all kinds every few minutes. No clue if it was because Michael is tattoed and I was dressed a bit alternative in comparsion to all the tourists but it seriously was crazy. 












The next day we picked up our rental camper van, which was an old VW Transporter that looked as fucked up as we wanted it to, and started our surfing roadtrip. The van itself was perfect, it seriously wasn`t in best condition and I won`t name the rental agency cause in the end some things went terribly wrong with them, but this car was beautiful and actually how we imagined our roadtrip van to be. For us, a perfect nice new van wouldn`t have fitted our lifestyle so we completly fell in love with this old shitty home on wheels. I marked our route on the map below, we started in Lisbon and found our first wild camping spot a bit south of Sines. Wild camping is actually not really allowed at the Algarve, but if you hide your car, take your trash and dont be too loud nobody will say anything. In the end we actually found an extra wildcamping camping spot near Praia Ingrina. After a very cold night, never sleep with the heck of your car pointed to the sea, we headed south to the Little surfer village called Sagres. You may recognize that name, cause the famour beer the brew there is called the same. It was obvious that surfer Season here is in winter, the village looked quite deserted but it wasn`t less pretty even if extremly windy. The beaches here had no waves at that time, so if you want to surf in summer make sure to stay at test west coast of Portugal and maybe even head to the area above Lisbon. There are some beautiful beaches east of Sagres, hidden treasures you can only access on sandy roads. We made the mistake to start driving more east, which lead us to the nightmare of every backpacker. No nature left, only tourists and hotels everywhere east of Lagos so that we decided to skip the famous caves and head back east, which was the best decision in comparsion on this trip. So we spent our last days surfing, relaxing and just enjoying life in our van before we had to go back to Lisbon to bring our car back. 

So if you like to go Surfing, Portugal is a must see! Make sure to go off high Season casue the waves will be better and avoid the south coast except its winter. Get yourself a van and enjoy that hippie life to the fullest. We loved our little van so much that we are now thinking about getting one of our own, there is no better feeling than complete freedom and if you got your home with you at all times, what on earth could beat that.
















Kisses,

Faye
