As a massive fan of Lush natural cosmetics, I was over the moon to get a prize for the best frog jokes on the Lush Westfield page. After many weeks of procrastinating I finally manage to go and pick it up at Westfield.
My prize was made up of two lovely Lush soaps and two fragrances, Karma and Lady Boy.
Lady Boy is crazy, the first funky banana top notes hit you in the face, when the boy stops screaming and the fragrance calms, down you get seaweed, violet, chamomile, labdanum, oak moss middle and base notes.
A great fragrance for summer as you stroll along those Brazilian beaches, well more like Jeddah in my case inshallah.
The treatment I had was called The Spell…oooh spooky…not really it was more like counseling therapy with a great foot massage, reflexology thrown in. I had hot stones with aromatherapy oils on my temples and a head massage, all designed to de- tox me inside and out.
I threw my worries away for an hour at least and afterwards felt like I could face anything, including Friday lunchtime Kensington traffic on the way home.
We all need to treat ourselves pamper ourselves a bit more and what better way than a trip to Lush,
