The brand new Weavers’ House offers top of the range facilities, boasting a luxurious relaxation area with six treatment rooms and two relaxation suites. It also contains a…

LUSH REVIEW | Sikkim Girls Perfume

“A warm and exotic floral with the veiled allure of jasmine. We capture the exotic heat of Darjeeling, India in clouds of tuberose and frangipani. The overt sensuality of jasmine is demurely covered in this perfume, creating a subtly seductive fragrance with a hint of ‘come hither’. A contrast to the up-front and overtly sexual…

REVIEW | Lush Bubbleroons. Heart Throb and Yuzu

I love that word – BUBBLEROOOOOON! I can’t help but say it in a high pitched voice. Anyway… Designed around those tasty morsels called macaroons, these are filled with crumbly, bubbly, goodness. But you can’t eat them, obviously. Originally I was going to tell you about the wonderful Yuzu and Cocoa Bubbleroon. However, since this new discovery,…

BEAUTY | Cleanse with Charcoal

Charcoal is becoming more of a popular super ingredient in cleansing! However, don’t just grab it from the roaring BBQ and slap it on your face OK?   Who’s it for? It can work for anyone, but it is especially good for if you have oily/spot prone skin or live in an urban area where the…

LUSH Review | Northern Lights Bath Bomb

It’s a crackling firework in a bathtub – even stars fly out of it! I strongly suggest you stock up on this limited edition bath bomb before it disappears. This is indeed an October/November spectacular that surrounds you with comforting scents and moisturising ingredients. So, the question is, does it spin? The answer is no.…

LUSH Review | Snow Angel Bath Melt

So I walked into the Lush store in Ipswich this week to find the Christmas stock displayed right in the centre, ready for me to leap right into it! (I obviously didn’t because that would destroy their display and probably result in being kicked out of the shop covered in glitter.) Therefore the excitement was…

REVIEW – LUSH COSMETICS – Big Shampoo

Oh yes. This stuff. Is AWESOME! My hair is ultra limp so this stuff saved it’s life. BIG Sea Salt Shampoo is “A volumising shampoo made with seaweed and sea salt. While the salt lifts the hair and adds body, it also manages and softens the hair alongside extra virgin coconut oil and protein-rich toothed…

REVIEW – Lush Cosmetics – Tea Tree Toner Water

“Keep skin clear and refreshed. Tea tree is antibacterial, antifungal and antimicrobial, so can help keep away the bacteria that can cause spots. Grapefruit is rich in vitamins and is also lightly astringent on the skin, whilst juniper berry is antiseptic and helps keep skin clean and clear. Use any time of day to keep…

REVIEW: Lush Cosmetics – African Paradise

Being half South African, I was intrigued by this new product called African Paradise. Anything South African takes me back to whenever we visited my Mother’s family in Johannesburg. My sense of smell can fill me with nostalgia, therefore I was hoping this product would create an African tropical storm in the shower. I was right.…

Latitude Review: Circa Waves

Liverpool quartet and hotly tipped band Circa Waves released an energetic indie-pop feel with the similarities of The Strokes and The Libertines. Their clever lyrics were wrapped around loud distorted guitar riffs, hard-hitting drum solos and lively vocals – reliving the sound from the early noughties indie scene. Their melodic yet propulsive rock sound was well-received by…
