kikki.K 2015 Leather Time Planner in Lilac Medium - Review and See What's Inside!

If you've seen my previous kikki.K haul, then you know that I purchased a medium size leather planner from the store. I already have a big size planner from Erin Condren, but I wanted a smaller planner to carry around in my handbag where ever I go. I equally love both planners, they have their own strengths and weaknesses. I found both of  my planners very functional for my every day activities, and I'm happy to have two of them instead of one.

I'm so happy that I came across kikki.K because they have a ton of elegant stationery and planner goodies which I'm always a huge fan of. They have everything you need to organize your home, office, school, etc. They include items for your bedroom, kitchen, homeware, lifestyle, birthdays, weddings, parties, and many more. kikki.K has the Swedish design principles of form and function to bring you seasonal collections of delicious stationery, gorgeous gifts and organisation solutions. Organise your everyday with this stylish 2015 Weekly Planner. In lilac leather with gold foil detailing, this unique Medium Leather Time Planner includes monthly and weekly planners, notes pages, pen loop, elastic closure and more.

Lush Cosmetics : Therapy Massage Bar

I've never heard of a massage bar before so I was intrigued when I found one from the gift box I purchased from Lush Cosmetics a month ago. Any one loves massages, it's such a great way to relax the body and release all the tension and stress from a busy day. The Therapy Massage Bar is one of many massage bars you can find from Lush, and they smell absolutely amazing!

The Therapy Massage Bar is 100% organic and made with a solid cocoa butter base that melts at body temperature. Lush make all of their massage bars solid so they don’t require packaging or the use of any preservatives. You can rub Therapy directly onto your (lucky) partner and massage away- without the waste! Lush pack each stress-relieving bar with lavender, neroli and sweet orange oils to calm a weary body and uplift your spirits. Neroli is known for its ability to improve the skin’s elasticity, so Therapy is perfect for growing pregnant tummies too.

Lush Cosmetics Valentine's Day Collection 2015

Valentine's Day was last week, and I picked up a couple of items from Lush Cosmetics Valentine's Day Collection. I've been waiting for Lush Valentine's Day collection since the beginning of the year. I'm so glad that I got the chance to pick up most of the items in my wishlist before they ran out of stock since I got them a day before Valentine's Day. My sister and I went to the Lush store at Broadway Street, New Market for the first time to see if the store offers more varieties than the city branch. The Lush store in New Market is definitely more spacious and the items are presented in a more exciting manner since they have a bigger store. I already know what I'm getting before I enter the store. I was gutted when the Unicorn Horn Bubble Bar and the "In Your Dreams" gift box which contains the Unicorn Horn was both out of stock! I knew I shouldn't have waited last minute to purchased it since the Unicorn Horn was newly introduced to Lush Valentine's Day collection this year. Lush usually release their Valentine's Day collection at the beginning of February. The sales associates at Lush New Market told me that it was nearly out of stock during the first week when it was released. I was really devastated that I didn't get the chance to try the Unicorn Horn Bubble Bar this year, and hopefully they'll release it again next year!

I picked up most of the bath bombs, bath melts, shower gel, and bubble bars available in the collection. I didn't really want to try the soaps, massage bars, and lip scrubs. I was hoping that Lush will release a gift box next year that contains all the bath goodies, it would be really awesome and a incredible gift for bath lovers.

I will do a separate review of each of the items in this shopping haul in my future blogposts. This post is just a shopping haul, not a review. Stay tuned if you're interested to know more about these goodies, and watch out for my future blogposts!

PS: The HEART SHAPE BOX in the photos is NOT FROM LUSH
I purchased it myself from a different store.

Lush Cosmetics : Dream Cream Hand and Body Lotion Review

Lotions, moisturisers, and creams are my most favorite type of skincare products. I don't think I can go through the whole day without putting them on my body and hands. I'm always on a venture to find the best hand and body moisturiser in the market, it feels like that I'm so hard to please and I always looking for something better. I've never thought of trying out the moisturisers or creams from Lush Cosmetics before, even though I'm such a huge fan of the brand. I only got the chance to try their ever so famous Dream Cream Body Lotion since it came with the gift boxes I purchased from the (Jolly Holidays and You're A Start gift boxes). I was really excited to try it because I've heard so many amazing feedbacks from customers about the lotion, and it's one of Lush's holy grail products.

"Lush's most gentle cream for troubled, sensitive skin"

What makes Dream Cream so effective? It contains every ingredient nature makes for soothing sore skin! One of Lush proudest product achievements ever, they love this body lotion because it makes people happy. The calming blend of oat milk, lavender and chamomile goes to work soothing sensitive skin. Olive oil and cocoa butter are perfectly suited and incredibly effective for dry or chapped skin, and are especially gentle for even the most sensitive types. Do your skin a favor, treat it right with Dream Cream.

Lush Cosmetics : Think Pink Bath Bomb Demo and Review

I tried one of the incredible bath bombs from the Christmas Bathtime Favourites gift box that I purchased a month ago from Lush Cosmetics. The bath bomb is called Think Pink, and it's absolutely gorgeous inside and out! I was first drawn to it because of the beautiful pink color and there are flowers on top of it. I was really surprised when I toss it on a bath full of water because I didn't expect that there's something incredible inside of the bath bomb. It's so small in size compare to the other bath bombs but it can still fill up a tub full of water. The water turns from baby pink first then to a lovely sweet red color once the bath bomb is completed dissolved.

A relaxing pink bath bomb with a sweet vanilla and tonka fragrance. As it dissolves, you’ll feel as though you’re getting a big hug - you’ll find yourself surrounded by rice paper confetti hearts that slowly melt away. Its sweet scent comes from Fair Trade vanilla absolute, while tonka adds a caramel undertone. Neroli gives it a sunny citrus top note, while lavender clears your mind and makes you feel that life is sweet.

Erin Condren 2015 Foil Life Planner Gold Edition in Spearmint : Overview and What's Inside

It took me awhile on deciding what type of planner to get this year. This year is actually the first time I'm ever using a planner, and I'm so excited about it. I've decided to get a planner this year because I noticed that I'm doing so much more things every single day and  it's getting hard to keep on track. After so much comparison, research and reading reviews online, I've decided that the Erin Condren Life Planner is the best option for my lifestyle.

When I first saw the Foil Gold Edition of the Erin Condren Life Planner, I was instantly sold because it's such a stunning design and looks so elegant! It's definitely more fun organizing your day when you get to write it on a planner that looks absolutely divine. I was also impressed with the layout of the Erin Condren Life Planners, and I find every single dividers/segments so useful. It's not like other planners that has a segment or two that are completely useless. It's such a stunning planner inside and out. Even though their international shipping was so expensive during the time I purchased it, it was more than half of the price of the planner itself; but it's still definitely worth it because of the high quality craftsmanship and beautiful designs. You'll also be happy to know that Erin Condren recently cut their international shipping in half which is a huge discount since their international customers are highly escalating. If you haven't tried Erin Condren, then you should definitely get on the band wagon and own one of the most amazing planners in the market!

Lush Cosmetics : Ceridwen's Cauldron Bath Melt Demo and Review

One of the favorite luxury bath melts from Lush Cosmetics is the Ceridwen's Cauldron. I actually got it from the gift box I purchased last month called You're A Star. It's such an incredible bath melt filled with moisturising ingredients for a glowing skin, and it looks so cool too! Bath Melts are one of the most moisturising products from Lush because majority of the ingredients are natural oils and they're made to target dry skin, especially during cold and harsh weathers.

"Magical, relaxing bath melt for softer skin"

Slip into Lush's enchanting potion of oats, lavender and sandalwood to calm and soothe your irritated, sensitive skin. If you’re wishing for relief, we can guarantee that this bath melt it will make your skin dreams come true. Rich, nutritious cocoa butter and walnut oil melt into the bath water to quench and soften your dehydrated skin, frothing ever so slightly, leaving you with a muslin bag of whole oats to give your skin a soothing and gently scented scrub for instant relief from redness and itch.
