Lush 2015 Christmas Haul


After much delay, and with a little over a week left until Christmas Day, I thought it was about time I shifted my backside and posted the partial Lush haul that I've managed to collect over the last month or two. It has taken time, as it is quite a stash and isn't exactly cheap, but I've managed to get the ones that I wanted to try this year. So, let me dive straight into it and show you some of the collection that's available to buy until the end of December. I apologise for the bad set-up for these photos - I didn't have anywhere suitable to take them so I just took photos of the products in their boxes!

My Apologies.

I know this isn't the first post of this kind from me, but you can already guess what it is about from the title. I posted a little while ago saying that I was sorry that I hadn't posted much, and that I was planning my next couple of posts. Yet, I still haven't posted anything. I did mean every word that I posted last time, and I had every intention to blog more. But life being what it is, more shit hit the fan to be honest. Thought I'd hit a rock-bottom phase, but I actually had further to fall than that. This isn't a post for sympathy, I just feel like my readers (or occasional visitors, hello!) deserve an explanation. Basically, I'm not entirely happy with my home situation but it's personal and to do with other people so I won't go into detail with that. But when I'm at home I just have no motivation to do anything whatsoever, which hinders my blogging as I would do this when I'm at home. Then my long-term relationship ended which has obviously taken it's toll on me. Again, this is more complicated than it just ended, there's a lot more to it than that but I won't dive into that as I don't really want to write it in black and white. Then to top everything off, my car died. So that was fun. Buying a new car immediately when you haven't been paid by work is a little bit of a struggle and extremely stressful. Especially when you need said car to get to work in order to earn more money, aha. I've had a couple of health issues as well, and my mental health hasn't really been the best either.

So there you have it, cutting an extremely draining and long story short, that's my explanation as to why I haven't posted in something like two months. But as you can tell, I needed the break and I think if I had posted anything whilst all of this was happening, my writing would have reflected that. And that's not the kind of vibe I want to pass on to other people. I have missed blogging, and even though I have a small audience, I am grateful for everyone who's still been reading and checking in on the blog whilst I've been absent. I will try my best to make it up to you all one day, perhaps with a giveaway in the future? What do you think? I won't make any solid promises to post extremely regularly (I know this is a pain and makes my image look bad) because some of the aforementioned problems and situations are still going on and/or are still their effects on me, so some days are good and others are really bad and I just don't want to communicate with anybody.

But my aims to myself and to you guys is to try to blog more now that I'm trying to get myself back up, as it will be a welcome distraction and I do enjoy writing. I'm also going to try and throw myself into work a little bit more, as I haven't really had my head in the game there either recently. This will hopefully lift my mood, as I love the people that I work with and I'm around animals all the time, so it's a win-win situation. I've also been hanging out with my friends a lot more too, as I've missed them phenomenal amounts as over the years I've been committed to other things and I hate myself for neglecting them so much. So there may be some more personal posts coming up from our little adventures - if they'll allow it and I remember to take pictures! I'm also aiming to go to America around the April-May time slot for about a month, so that should be really fun and will be interesting to document.

Again, thank you guys so much for reading - or even glimpsing - at my blog whilst I've been a ghost, it does really mean a lot to me. Thank you, thank you, thank you.
