Yeah I am a Lush fan

Yeah I am a Lush.

Lush Fan that it is.

I first fell in love with Lush when my friend Gina showed my glitterbug a massage bar that has the most amazing sparkles!  They stay on to the skin for quite a while.  After that I was hooked!

I got the above as a present to myself for my birthday.  I have had a chance to try all of the products and the samples too. It was quite a bit of stuff but I really do enjoy Lush products.  I know that there are a lot of websites that sell bath products at cheaper prices but there is nothing like going into a store and smelling them there.  Scent is such a personal preference that it keeps me to the brick and mortar stores.

New Eco Brushes

I picked up some of the new brushes out from ELF.  These are made with recycled metal and bamboo.  The hairs are synthetic and super soft.

This kit originally sells for $15.  I got it for half off in one of their many sales.  So for $7.50 not bad.  It totally feeds my brush habit! 
As you can see below the case that it comes in is very generously sized.  I hate when the brush packs barely hold the brushes much less shoving something else inside.
This one not so.  I could easily put some eyeliner, lipstick and possibly face makeup up too. 
I recommend picking one up.  I only buy from ELF now when they are having a half off sale.  Its kinda silly cause it is already so greatly reduced but why not.  If you sign up for the newsletters they are always having a sale of some sort.
I might even pick up some more for Xmas presents for friends. 

Take care and happy trails,

NOTD Midnight Mission

I picked this up from my favorite beauty supply store, Image Beauty in Blackwood.
This one is from the Vintage collection and they still have plenty of bottles.  At first I really wasn't loving this collection when I first saw promo pictures online.  I am so glad that Image Beauty picked it up. They have so many great fall colors with a bit of a kick.
So pretty.  Its navy blue with a sliver shine to them.

With flash shows the blue.
Pretty cool huh.

Take care and lots of love your way!

My Friends are so great!

Yeah, I have been AWOL for awhile.

I had surgery about two weeks ago so I am just now feeling back to normal.

Thank you so much to my friends and family.  They have been there for me so much it brings tears to my eyes.  My beautiful Mom came up from VA and stayed with me for a week to take care of me.  She was my nurse, housekeeper, gardener, driver, cook and advocate at the hospital.  I know she doesn't read this blog, but I am so proud that she is my Mom and was willing to do so much for me. :o)

My beautiful friends were so great to me.  I got home and flowers were waiting outside for me and then I got another beautiful arrangement that still is alive now.  I have to say a big thank you to you wonderful ladies.  I never thought that I would meet such great women at work!  I got a balloon and stuff animal too!  It made my day!  If I was more tech savvy then I would be able to upload the pictures!  I was so happy I got up and made my Mom take a picture so that I could send it to them (on the phone).  I tied my Get Well balloon (if you haven't already guessed I love balloons) to me and still have it tied to my computer table!  :o)

My friend Staci not only helped me out big time and picked up my Mom from the airport when I couldn't.  Also she came by and hung out with us when we had gotten a bit of cabin fever, but brought over my favorite flowers and some lovely soaps.  Staci always finds the most thoughtful things.  She knows that I love different smelling soaps and she got me two great ones.  Here they are below.
They smell so great and I can't wait to use them!

I am going to start posting regularly again.  I have tons of pictures and have still been using makeup so get ready!

Thank you again to all of my beautiful friends and family for being there for me.  Your kind words mean the world to me. 
Lots of  Love your way.  My cup runs over!
