Sometimes I go overboard in Lush

Hello lovebugs!!

I think the title of this post is pretty self explanatory!!! If you watch my videos ( you really, REALLY, should) you saw where I popped into the slice of Heaven on Earth that is Lush. I need to point out that I ONLY went in for THREE of the Halloween bath dealies before they were gone for the season. ONLY THREE!! Welllll much to my mother's dismay and with the help of the lovely lady who works there, AnyƩ, I... well... went overboard.

Yes, I know that Halloween season is now over and some of theses beauts are no longer in stock, but I just had to share! Who knows, this might be helpful for next year!! 

Granny Takes A Dip- $6.95

Now this one isn't a halloween bath bomb but because my store was out of Northern lights, I was led to Granny Takes a dip which gives a similar effect with the coloring and whatnot. I've used this one and I find the lemon oil, spicy black pepper and fresh ginger oil scent is is quite relaxing! And it's so psychedelically pretty!

Wizard - $7.95
This little dude reminds me of the Disney Fantasia hat! He's a bubble bar so just just crush him under the warm running water and fill your bathroom with the scent of tangerine, juniperberry and fennel essential oils. Sounds pretty magical to me!!

Another Bubble bar!! Also, a one of the things I actually went in there for!! I would suggest breaking this bad boy in half and getting two baths out of it!! First of all, can we talk about the shimmering gold... ness of this. All I keep thinking is *sings* Shining Shimmering Splendid. Second, to quote directly from the website , "juniperberry, grapefruit and lime oils will fill the room with an enticing, cocktail-like punch" YES PLEASE!! I am quite the fan of a good cocktail!!

Taking a quick break from all things Halloween-y.  This is a massage bar. It's made with avocado,mango kernel ,Fair Trade cocoa , and shea butters making it EXTRA moisturizing!! If I'm being honest, this is my mom's but I have every intention of using it for myself! HA! 

Lustre- $15.95
Also a regular at Lush but... I did say I went overboard didn't I?? The website calls this a "

Shimmery, seductive golden Dusting Powder" enough said, yes??

I believe this is actually a Christmas item but... oh well. I'm quite excited to use this one! It's a bath melt that's made with organic shea butter and extra virgin coconut oil to soften your skin.It's made with zesty ginger, lavender and lime oil because why not?!?  Also, also, ALSOOOOO... Apparently, when you crush it under the running water, it TURNS THE WATER TURQUOISE!! YESSSSSS!!!

Another Christmas product! oops! I sometimes suffer with a bad case of the chaps ( chapped lips) especially during colder weather, so an exfoliating lip scrub that you can simply lick off is a MUST. And it's Cola flavored you say? Double check!!

Sparkler- $6.95
This is one of the bath bombs I was most excited for! It is filled with glitter and popping candies AND it's rose jam scented!! The one I bought had broken in half by the time I got home so I popped a piece in the tub and WOW! Even just half of it is GORGEOUS!! It's like a fireworks display in the bathtub! I'm OBSESSED!!

Northern Lights is what I wanted most when I walked into Lush! I'd seen so many videos and heard so many good things! But alas, my store was OUT! However, I discovered that many of the gift boxes have it inside! Poptastic being one of them ! The other bath bomb in Poptastic is Sparkler so... WIN! Let's discuss the fact that when you place Northern Lights in your bath water, popping candies crack and fizzle as your water turns blue and green and you could very well be in jasmine and ylang ylang-scented Alaska watching the Aurora Borealis! I'm saving this for last! SWEET GOODNESS GRACIOUS !

WHEW! I'm winded!! I'm torn between wanting to take a bath RIGHT NOW and wanting to run out to Lush ASAP!! 
If you want to get your hands on some of these before they're gone, head on over to NOW NOW NOWWWWW!!!!

Halloween 2014

Friday was the day I've been waiting for since I got home from our excursion's last year!! HALLOWEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEENNNNNN!!!!!
I was especially stoked for this year because I made my costume myself.... well, mostly (my mom did the top) I decided to fulfill my life long dream and for a day I was Princess Tiger Lily of Neverland! I love Peter Pan, maybe a little too much. And I loooooove Tiger Lily! I like to tell myself that I'm a descendant (yes, I'm aware that she is a fictional character) According to Disney, Tiger Lily is of the Blackfoot tribe and my family has Blackfoot in our blood!
My mother and I kept our newly formed tradition and headed into the city. We made a quick trip to Lush, where I did a bit of damage (more on that soon), and headed to South Street. I may or may not have been holding out hope that I would run into a cute guy dressed as Peter Pan... no such luck. To my utter dismay, maybe 3 people aside from us were dressed in costume. So we moseyed our way on over to the Spirits of' 76 ghost tour. We wanted to do a different one than last year. While the stops on the tour were basically the same, our tour guide (Alex) was really cute! 
I can't wait until next year!! Maybe I'll be brave enough to tackle ESP or stay overnight at Fort Mifflin !

My mom as a Once Upon a Time-esque Pirate!!

Yeah, Yeah, Ya Boy

So, on August 15th, I got to go see Paradise Fears on their headlining tour… The Live Forever Tour. If you have never seen PF live, you are SERIOUSLY missing out! These guys are beyond talented and I swear every time I see them, they are better than the last time. The only word I can think of to describe this last show is INTENSE! It was truly an experience. I got goosebumps so many times. I actually don’t think that’s ever happened before… and I go to a lot of shows. 
There is absolutely nothing like that moment when the artists are giving absolutely EVERYTHING on that stage and the crowd is giving everything right back. You can literally feel the energy flowing between you! It’s like Sam said, “ I feel really in it right now”. I feel so alive.  Being in the middle of a crowd where there’s this unity… everyone is screaming the Sanctuary speech at the top of their lungs… there’s nothing like it! 

That’s when it usually happens for me, during Sanctuary, when I just feel it. Like I’m in the middle of something truly POWERFUL. Like if I don’t scream the lyrics, I might burst. And I think everyone must feel that way because it’s like in that moment everyone is on the same wavelength, the same energy is being shared. It’s coursing through all of us. It’s like a tangible moment. There are tears and Sam has this look on his face like he just knows… He knows he’s a part of something truly special. Paradise Fears is truly special!

Halloween 2013

I've been wanting to post about this for a while... Simply because I was very happy with how everything turned out and I kinda wanted to show my costume off.

This past Halloween was the first Halloween in YEARS where I actually dressed up! For the past two years I had been planning my costume, I just never had anywhere to go. I read a lot of books about fallen angels so that’s what I was this year !  I was so excited when my mom agreed to go out with me! Not only did she go with me, but she went in costume! She went as Johnny Depp’s version of the Mad Hatter (I thought she was Elton John). The original plan was for us to head to Eastern State Penitentiary for Terror Behind the Walls. Wellllllllll, needless to say, I chickened out! We ended up going on a ghost tour in Olde City! It was so much fun but creepy at the same time! I hope this is a new tradition because even though I could feel the hairs on the back of my neck at end the whole time, I’d do it again and again and again!! 

Side Note: The only time guys find me attractive is when I have dark makeup and clothes on and wings

what has been your favorite costume??


Fourth And Weekend

Earlier this month, I got to spend the weekend with some of my favorite people ever! My buds James and Stephen aka Fourth and Coast were finally back on the East Coast (they’re from San Diego) on their house party tour. I’m so glad that I got to see them two days in a row, I had a blast! 

Friday we were at Jackie’s house! Give me a fire pit , sparklers, and good music and I am like a puppy who got a pile of bones for Christmas! 

Saturday was my turn! I had a daytime party at the Embassy Suites in Center City! (We had the best view!!) It was so chill and there were unicorn horns sooooooooo……

There are vlogs from both days if you want to see more of what went down!
ALSO: Check out Fourth and Coast!! You won't regret it!!
