DIY: Lush Lip Scrub

A few weeks ago I went into Lush and was standing there completely unsure on what I should buy. Until I came across the Bubblegum Lip Scrub. Seeing as I had seen it everywhere on people's beauty blogs, I thought that I should try it out to see what the fuss was all about. I paid $13.00 for a teeny jar of pretty much just sugar, some oil, flavouring and food colouring, and realized that I could make it myself for so much cheaper, plus I have endless possibilities for flavouring choices. So I came up with a simple and cheap recipe to make your own lip scrub.


4 heaped tablespoons castor sugar
2 teaspoons olive oil
Flavouring of your choice
Food colouring

To make this, add your 4 tablespoons of castor sugar into a bowl, along with your 2 teaspoons of olive oil. Add your preferred flavouring. Add as much as you want depending on how strong you want. Then if you want, add some food colouring. I suggest to use pink food colouring because if it stains, it will stain your lips pink which isn't as bad if it was blue or green. Below I have listed the combinations that I have tried.


What's In My Handbag

I recently emptied the contents of my handbag and thought what better than to do a whats in my handbag post. It is only up until recently that I have been using a handbag as I had never felt the need for one. But seeing as now I have my own vehicle and always seem to want to buy something when i'm out and about, I thought it was about time to do something about it. 

 I bought this handbag off Urban Outfitters online around Christmas time for $49.00. Out of all the handbags I only liked this one. I love its colour and the amount of zips on it. It was the perfect one for me. After 3 months of not cleaning it out. I was surprised as to what I found in it. I have the necessities, my wallet, iPad charger, sun glasses, impulse, lip balm, camera and my scooter keys. I also found a few plastic spoons, usb sticks paw paw ointment and jewelry boxes and a whole lot of pens. I have come to the conclusion that I have a whole lot of rubbish in my handbag that do not need to be there. So I will defiantly be cleaning it out more often.
