Lush Godiva Shampoo bar

     During my trip to Seattle last month I made my first ever purchase at Lush.  Lush is a company that makes cruelty free bath products and has a niche following among long term travelers. One reason being their line of shampoo bars. A shampoo bar is similar to a bar of soap but since it is a solid, it doesn't need to go in the liquids bag in your carry on. This is a big plus for us beauty junkies who need all the extra space we can get! I don't like to skimp on my beauty routine when I'm traveling nor do I enjoy the hassle of bringing a checked bag. Anything I can use that multi-tasks or doesn't need to go in my liquids bag is essential. I've always wanted to try solid shampoo so when I spotted the Lush store, I had to check it out.

Mini E.L.F. Haul and DIY Travel Eye Shadow Palette

       Before I begin my post, I wanted to give you guys an update on the blog. Recently I've found that trying to stay on top of writing, editing and sharing blog posts has been very difficult. I like to spend as much time with my family during the holidays as possible and between that, a full-time job and various other priorities, it doesn't leave much time for quality posts. I don't want to abandon my readers but I also think you deserve to read something good, not something I threw together and typed up at the last minute. I was trying to maintain a schedule of two to three posts per week, but as you may have noticed, that hasn't happened. Until things quiet down, I may only be able to post once a week, or every other week. Even though I have so many ideas and things I want to share with you, I want to make sure I am being respectful of the time you give me when you read my posts. I'm still learning how this whole thing works and trying to find my style which is why I feel for now it is more important to practice producing meaningful material that you will appreciate than how many posts I can throw together every week. Thanks you guys!!!

     A while back, E.L.F. had a free shipping promo that I couldn't wait to take advantage of. I had been wanting to pick up a few things that weren't available locally but I can't bear paying $7 in shipping for $15 dollars of products. While I could have easily spent more, for the sake of my bank account, I refrained. Here are a few favorites I picked up plus some new ones AND l'm going to show you a cute and easy DIY eye shadow palette! So read on!!
