i can't believe it's been nine days since my last post. i feel really bad especially as none have been outfit posts or anything either but the past couple of days have picked up my mood and i'm feeling back to normal. i'm off work for a week come monday too so i have a fair amount of time to catch up on my many many posts i have to do. the only negative of having a couple of weeks off means i'm really behind. not to worry, it's nothing a couple of days dedication can't fix. providing i can get my laptop back on as the charger is currently messing up... luck is definitely not on my side right now.
last sunday i was lucky enough to be invited to visit my local lush store and find out about the new emotional brilliance range. i was welcomed by lol who was the sweetest thing and you could tell she really did love working there which is always what you want when you visit a store. she took me on a tour of the store explaining all the types of products available; massage bars, moisturisers, cleansers, face masks, perfume, shampoos you name it. the best thing about lush products are they will never add any extra ingredients if they don't need to. meaning its as natural and great for your skin. i've always been a huge fan of lush products anyway but i was totally oblivious to the fact they had a make up range. the emotional brilliance range links colours to moods based on a study where 9 out of 10 people would link the same mood to the associating colour. with the colour wheel i was asked to close my eyes and imagine a white canvas and then when i opened them again and chose the first three colours i was drawn to. my picks were (how i feel at present) fantasy meaning i'd be daydreaming a lot, (my subconscious) confident as i've been lacking confidence recently and finally drive, which told me i always push myself when it comes to things whether that's with my blog or in my personal life. the best thing about the readings is that you will never get the same reading twice, as you will always be feeling different. it was pretty spooky though. lol was kind enough to gift me three of my own products from the range that she had personally chosen by looking at my blog and she definitely didn't disappoint. happiness is a gorgeous metallic gold which is a gorgeous eyeshadow, power the perfect red lip colour and dynamic a lovely pearlescent that can be used as a highlight or even an eyeliner. overall i had a great time and can't wait to start using these products more.
