lush bath

i just had the most amazing hour long bath. I went upstairs with my pile of bathing stuff including one of my favourite bath bombs by lush. it is called Tisty Tosty, I think I mentioned it last night...Anyways this bath bomb has just become my most favourite bath bomb of all time. I smells amazing, like vanilla and roses, and it actually has mini rosebuds floating around, which I think is a really sweet idea, and I love playing with them. Rose is supposed to make you feel more relaxed and calm and also make you feel happier. Which is exactly how I felt when I got out of the bath. The lush website states:
'Tisty Tosty was inspired by the beautiful writings of a literary critic. It was based on a spell used to stir the passions and bring love to you, depending on the state of mind of the caster. With seven roses, if you start positively, it will end positively'
 I actually counted my rosebuds and there were indeed 7 rosebuds, just to let you know;)

ins and outs

I'm trying to go to sleep at the moment and that just isn't working, I've been lying here for like 40 minutes waiting for sleep to come...its super annoying. usually I just drop off after ten minutes or so, but not tonight.
so I thought I would do a blog, I haven't blogged on here for ages, because I kind of got a bit over it, but I have been sick for the last week and have been reading other peoples blogs and it reminded me that I used to enjoy it so I thought I'd give it another go.
INS:
*my overseas trip! super excited about that. here is the link so you can be super jealous of me. can't wait! 
*finally having my room perfectly clean! I was home, sick from work today and I got a bit restless, so I literally cleaned my whole room, including under my bed and sorted everything out, changed my linen and did a bunch of washing. And I did some cooking and filled up my fridge with healthy meals to just grab on the go.
*my new tone it up gear. they have the cutest stuff, i love it! I got a new jumper, t-shirt and a lunchbox. I made a rule for myself that I was only healthy foods were allowed in that lunchbox and it seems to be working, cos I am losing weight!!:) I will link the tone it up website here
*pretty smelling candles. Since I spent the whole day cleaning my room, I wanted it to smell really pretty as well as look really pretty so I lighted up my favourite candle which I think I have mentioned in a previous post, its the Christopher Vine candle. It smell amazing, and my room smelt beautiful.
*My LUSH stash. My stash had been getting pretty low, so I went into Lush the other day to get a couple of things, including a shower gel for my mum, its called happy hippy. it smells amazing, its so zesty and great for waking you up in the morning. I got myself a 'its raining men' shower gel, (its smells soo good! (I use it after the gym) a 'tisty tosty' which is making my bathroom smell amazing at the moment, like roses and vanilla, I love the scent, I wish they made a shower gel with that scent. I also got a bunch of other ones, but maybe I will do a separate blog on that.
OUTS
*having a cold. I was soo sick for literally a week, I haven't been to work in a week. which has kind of been nice, because I haven't necessarily been enjoying work at the moment, and my body was starting to feel a bit weary and run down.
*the huge frickin pimple on my chin at the moment. little bugger. I'm killing it at the moment with Ella Bache's creme intense #2 I think it is called. I literally scraped it out of the container and then threw it out, so I can't remember what its called. It smells terrible, but it does a good job. I discovered recently that my skin is a bitch and I can't really use typical pimple gels or even good old tea tree oil because my face becomes all inflamed and red...not a good look.
*being poor. I'm trying to save as much money as possible for my trip, but it is super hard to save especially since I just want to go out and shop til I drop. And my trip is coming up really soon, it is literally four and a half months away!! eep! really have to get onto that saving thing.
*not being able to sleep. that sucks. maybe I'll go have a glass of milk now and see if that works.
