Last week the Bloggers and YouTubers of Milton Keynes were invited to LUSH in the Centre MK to take a peek at the new autumn/winter collection. I’ve been to a number of the LUSH events over the past couple of years and they’re always amazingly coordinated, though without a doubt last week’s seasonal get together has been my ultimate favourite so far. Put me in a room with people who share my love for the festive season and throw a tonne of glitter, fizz and bubbles my way, and I’m sold. Yes, it might be early October, but there’s something about new cosy jumpers, warm boots, crunchy leaves, candles, colder weather and the scent of oranges, cloves, peppermint and cinnamon that send me into Halloween, Bonfire Night and Christmas overdrive.
So, what did LUSH unveil this year? Among some true classics, there were plenty of squeaky clean, shiny new products, which more than lived up to my expectations. After playing a game of ‘find the knot wrap’ where we each unveiled a mystery bath or shower product, we got to feel them, smell them and watch them in action, so needless to say by the end of the evening I looked like the victim of a glitter bomb and smelt as though I’d rolled in the countless mounds of bath bombs. Never a bad thing.
I could write for a life time about all of their incredible products, both old and new, but I’ll let the photos speak for themselves. In the meantime you can check out the new Halloween collection here, and the new Christmas collection here. That said, I can’t end the post without sharing a few favourites, which I am planning on purchasing asap now payday has finally blessed me with its presence.

Give me all of those alongside a marshmallow-y hot chocolate, steaming hot bath, fresh set of pyjamas and clean bed sheets, and I’ll love you forever. That’s all a girl really needs throughout the colder months, with a lot of food, love and attention too, of course. Thank you to the lovely LUSH ladies for another successful event, but I also fully blame you for the rate at which my bank balance is going to drop… there’s something LUSH Cosmetics that is just too damn addictive!
