✨Shopaholic Tries The Lush Life ✨

Ok I know 🙄what you are thinking ..really Nida❓ Where’s the no pun intended disclaimer 😋❓

Haha! I couldn’t resist 😋. Hey if you can’t actually have the Lush life ✨hint.. Zara Larsson 😉. Might as well try the next best thing 😋ok that’s my last lame joke I promise 😁.

But seriously incase you are wondering if I had been living under a rock all this time I probably was. It wasn’t until last year that I really got into actively using natural 🍃,organic products. 

Since I’ve been hearing so much about  Lush by bloggers I figured I had to try them out. Which is easier said then done as the only Lush store here is in Dubai Mall 🙄.

So anyway I made it a point to hunt down the Lush store which is located in a corner btw which was why I never noticed it before 😖.

When I was in California I had been to the  Lush store several times with my bff who is an avid fan but I never bought anything. What can I say I was living in the age of ignorance. 😶

Since I was out of body and hand cream I decided to try those out first. After much sniffing and sampling and wearing out two of the sales associates who eventually gave up and left me to it. I picked out the Dream Cream and the Handy Gurugu.   

  First off I love the packaging it’s very minimalist just a black, plastic pot with chalk like font. On the side of the pot is a caricature 💁🏽and name of the person who made and packaged your cream as well as the expiration date ( thank you!).

The Dream Cream 💕came in a 240 gram pot and despite my initial skepticism at it being able to moisturize well ( it has a very light consistency). It actually keeps my skin soft for a good 7-8 hours without it being greasy and a little goes a long way 😱.   In general Lush products don’t have strong fragrances since they mostly use essential oils instead of artificial fragrances, so Body shop and Bath and Body Works fans who are used to being hit in the face 👊🏻with a strong whiff 🌪the moment they open the jars or tubes might be disappointed .

Personally I didn’t mind it at all, I’d rather the product does what it claims i.e long lasting moisture with all natural ingredients🍃. The most discernible scent was that of their patchouli cream which I will try once I run out of the Dream Cream. My rating 5/5 ✨  The Hand Gurugu is a buttery hand cream which moisturizes without overly greasing your hands. It’s not so much a cuticle cream which is what I was looking for but I like it as a hand cream not stellar though. It is also concentrated so you need a tiny amount. Comes in a 100 gram jar. My rating 4/5✨  All in all I am happy with my Lush experience and am definately looks forward to try their other products.

Are you a Lush fan? What products do you recommend I try from them next? Do let me know in the comments 💕

🤓Shopaholic’s Bespectacled SOTD 🤓✨

💕Hello Loves!💕

✨Most of you probably don’t know that I wear contacts and glasses,when I’m feeling extra nerdy🤓. As it happens today was the day for my annual eye 👁exam and my optometrist cautioned me not to wear my contacts before I came in😣. 

✨I have to be honest, I don’t like wearing glasses, they are forever sliding down my nose regardless of how many times I get the frame adjusted. Plus I find driving really difficult with them seeing as I cannot wear my sunnies😎 and the glare off the windshield makes it hard to see😖.

✨However half a day without glasses didn’t seem so bad plus I didn’t have a choice the earliest appointment was at midday. Once I showered and got dressed I reached for my contacts on auto pilot only to realize I couldn’t wear them 😡. 

✨Trying to apply any makeup was futile since my bathroom mirror is too far away from the sink and without my contacts I had a better chance of poking myself in the eye with the brush or pencil 😐.

✨I swear I’m so used to putting in my contacts the moment I wake up I forgot  without them I’m as blind as a bat🙈😐.

✨Anyway after smearing mascara all over my lid I was aiming for my lashes but kept missing 😫. I gave up and opted for my blue eyeliner which I applied haphazardly using my handheld compact. 

✨So here is the final look sans contacts 😋. Hope I don’t scare the optometrist too much 😉.  ✨Outfit & Makeup;

💕Top : Loft Petites

💕Jewelry : Gift from Mom💖

💕Glasses: Coach

Shopaholic’s Casual Weekend 🔆OOTD Featuring Toms🍃

Hello Loves!💟

🍃Welcome to an early edition of the OOTD post 💫 This week’s OOTD is special🎉 because of two reasons 😇, one we have a three day weekend🎉 yay! And second because it features one of my favorite brands Toms⚜.

🍃You can check out my review of Tom’s here, meanwhile lets get started on today’s OOTD. Weekend dressing for me has to be totally casual and comfortable  esp when it’s hot and humid I prefer cool fabrics like cotton and linen. The cotton top with its bright embroidery pairs perfectly with the linen pants and the stripes lend a slimming effect 😍 to the overall silhouette. The clutch bag is perfect for storing all my essentials I even use it as a cosmetics case to stow in my tote. The shoes are my go to pair when I’m out and about and the lace texture makes them just feminine enough 😇.

🍃Outfit Details:

🍃Top and pants : Old Navy

🍃 Shoes : Toms

🍃Handbag : Joyn @ Toms Marketplace

🍃Jewerly : Pandora

   

  

  

  

  

 ⚜Hope you guys enjoyed this OOTD post 🍃. Have a great weekend ✨! 

🍃Do check out the Toms website if you haven’t already 😇!
