Hey Guys!
So today I'm writing a VERY exciting post for you, if you love Lush you're going to want to read on! Just over a week ago, I was invited to an exclusive launch of the new Lush store and spa in Cardiff! I can honestly say it was one of the best evenings of my life, I was so overwhelmed by everything, it was just incredible! I went with the lovely Bethan Horton, and I was also able to meet loads of bloggers and Youtubers and share the amazingness together!! I mainly vlogged the evening, which is currently up on my YouTube channel here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SKqLfzrH9Ts&t=36s (or just go to the bottom of this post) I thought though I would share some photos on here and give you an overview on the night, so I hope you enjoy!





When we went in we were given a lanyard with our names and twitter handles on, which was such a great idea as that's a great way to become friends with people. Then we were given drinks, which OMG I have never had anything like it, they were candyfloss drinks with ACTUAL candyfloss in!

They also had their own 'Lush Spa Cardiff' snapchat filter for the evening, how cool is that?!



I feel really bad because I can't remember the name of the lady that showed us around, but she was so lovely and so helpful. Much like all the people who work at Lush, I would just like to say a MASSIVE thank you to all of you because you're just A-M-A-Z-I-N-G.




We were shown around the store and could see all the new Easter products that are available. As well as all the exclusive products to the Cardiff store, which is so exciting and makes the store feel more special. If you have heard of the store on Oxford Street you will know that they have the same thing. I've always wanted to visit that store, but don't think I need to as we pretty much have it all in Cardiff now!!


Obviously one of the main reasons for them moving was because of the Lush spa. I was so so excited when I found out that this was happening, as I've heard so many amazing things about it. At the event, we were able to have a tour of the entire spa, which is located upstairs in the store. All I can say is, WOW. Literally wow haha!! It's really unlike any other spa in the world! Unfortunately, I didn't take any photos, as we were having live demonstrations of the treatments and I felt a bit weird taking photos or vlogging if you get me!!
There are quite a few treatments available, all of which are completely different and unique. All of them have a different room, setting, soundtrack and lights. There is also a relaxation room where you can have a drink and relax! I wouldn't be doing it justice if I ramble on about the spa, so if you want any more information then I'm sure you can find it online or even better pop into the store and have a look for yourself! I can't wait to try it, I've been eyeing up the treatment called 'The Comforter' for ages now!!


The store itself is probably one of the nicest stores I have ever seen, it's set out so beautifully and everything is so accessible and easy to see. I love that they have this sign up, with lots of sinks so that they can show how different products work.





There is also a MASSIVE makeup section, and a hair section too. I couldn't believe how much more makeup there is, one of my favourites is the lipsticks which OMG stay on for sooo long!! Also just look how pretty they all are!

I got to make my own bath bomb, which I was a bit nervous about but it was so easy haha! I thought it was a great idea, to get people involved and making things themselves.


The one I made, I think is called 'Golden Slumbers' which I have to say smells so so nice! Unfortunately, a bit of the side fell off mine, but I'm still impressed by it! I have actually already used it in the bath, and I have to say it made my skin feel amazing. It also has A LOT of glitter in it which made it feel even more special. You can buy these for £4.25 each.

Golden Egg Bath Melt 
£3.95
I managed to limit myself to just buying one product on the evening, as I knew I would be making several trips there soon. The only thing that I got was the 'Golden Egg' bath bomb, which if you watched my Lush spring haul last year, you will know how much I love this! I just had to get it, and I'm so glad they brought it back this year. Some of you may be thinking that it looks a bit like a glittery potato. Which I'm not gonna lie, it kind of does but I can tell you that once in your bath it is just INCREDIBLE. It makes your bath so so glittery, but also makes your skin feel and smell amazing with scents of orange and cocoa butter.


We were all given some little goodies to go away with, which I think was such a lovely touch and I would like to say a massive thank you to Lush for.
As it was for the opening of the spa, we got some spa related thing to create a spa at home. They all came in a gorgeous, blue, red and white wrap which you can use as a scarf, or head scarf. The first thing that I got was a soundtrack from the treatment called, 'The Comforter?' which I have listened to and is so peaceful and relaxing. You can buy these in the Lush Cardiff store if you want to. I also got some herbal tea which I am yet to try, I'm saving it for when I can have a really relaxing evening!
Finally, we got two massage bars, which are:

Full of Grace - small £8.25
This is a deeply moisturising facial serum in solid form that will litearlly leave your skin feeling so soft and renewed. To use these just warm on your fingertips or glide it across the skin like a massage bar. I have to say this is one of my favourite products ever, my skin has never felt so good!

Wiccy Magic Muscles: £6.50
This one contains a blend of cinnamon and peppermint essential oils that are said to stimulate the circulation to warm and loosen up stiff, achy muscles. It contains cocoa butter and shea butter as well as organic jojoba oil and extra virgin coconut oil to sink into the skin. This one is more likely to get rid of a lot of those knots!!

I hope you have enjoyed reading a bit about the evening. I would like to say one last thank you to Lush for inviting me as it was a truly amazing evening. Let me know if you have visited this Lush or you want to. Or if you have been to the spa yet! I have already been back in and bought a couple more things haha!
I hope you are all well,
Lots of love
See you in my next post
