Lush Avobath Bath Bomb Review. Avobath Bath Bomb Is Made With Bergamot, Lemongrass, Avocado & Olive Oil.

Whilst browsing in Lush over the weekend it was the smell of the Avobath bath bomb that caught my attention. It was dreamily refreshing in an aromatherapy sort of way. The look of the Avobath bath bomb is very simple compared to the other bath bombs available at Lush Cosmetics, it was that smell that I knew I had to take home with me. To try one yourself click here – you won’t regret it!

I saved my bath bomb for one of my 5am baths. Achey and half asleep I stepped in to my lovely warm bath. Ready, steady, go! I launched the pistachio green bath bomb in the water. FIZZZZZZZZZ. It whirred round the tub releasing the gorgeously relaxing scent I had first been attracted to. The water felt softer too and turned green!

After my bath I noticed my skin was super soft. This is due to the olive oil and avocado in the bath bomb. The smells of bergamot and lemongrass gently woke me up. What a treat! At £3.35 per Avobath bath bomb, it really is worth trying one. I think you’re going to like it!

Wake Up & Smell The Coffee! Lush Cup O’Coffee Exfoliating Face Mask

I find it impossible to walk past a Lush shop without going in, so on a recent visit to Westfield in Shepherd’s Bush I slipped in to Lush and treated myself to a pot of Lush’s Cup O’Coffee exfoliating face mask. It contains roasted cocoa extract, vetivert and coriander oil to create an addictive fragrance and leave your skin gorgeously soft. Coffee ice cream, coffee cake, a mug of coffee, iced coffee – I love them all, so when seeing this little pot of fresh coffee smelling goop I knew I had to try it.

How To Use

 Wash your face with warm water, making sure it’s make-up free. Apply a 50p size blob to each side of your face and circulate with your fingers, allowing the grittiness to exfoliate your skin.

Apply to the lower and upper areas of your face to, avoiding the eye area. Then apply to the upper neck, chin and jaw area and exfoliate here too.

Let the face mask sit for 15 minutes. I recommend wearing a fantastically sparkly bath hat in this time firstly to keep the face mask out of your hair and secondly for extra awesomeness.

Another excellent thing to do in this 15 minutes is listen to Bob Marley’s record “One Cup Of Coffee.” Very relative, don’t you think? Whilst wearing the sparkly hat is the perfect combination.

After 15 mins wash the face mask off with warm water and a flannel, then stand back and admire your stunningly soft and supple skin.

Thank you Wojtek for making my lovely face mask!

Markus Lupfer SS16 Spring Summer 2016 Catwalk Report Runway Show Collection Fashion Blogger Review Lulu Williams Horse Guards Avenue

The emperor of attention to detail, Markus Lupfer did not disappoint when it came to venue, props and decoration at his spring / summer 2016 collection show at London Fashion Week. Inspired by a Mexican desert, Lupfer filled the room with lone standing flowers. Simple, yet hugely effective. The collection was compiled of beautiful shift dresses, bomber jackets and stunning separates; with dominant monochrome colour-ways. Floral designs on the textiles complimented the room’s temporary design. I throughly enjoyed the lucha libre – mexican wrestlers embellished on the clothes. There is always something unusual in Markus Lupfer’s collections that makes me smile.

J. JS Lee SS16 Spring Summer 2016 Collection at London Fashion Week 2016. Brewer Street Car Park. Lulu Williams Friday Favourite.

There is no surprise that this is the most beautiful pattern cutting I’ve seen at London Fashion Week 2016 so far, as J. JS Lee worked as a senior pattern cutter for 7 years prior to launching her own label. Jackie Lee’s SS16 collection was a true delight to observe and a beautiful way to start London Fashion Week 2016. As a “blogger” I enjoy writing more about style than what’s hot, and true to my word J . JS Lee’s 2016 Spring Summer collection was immensely stylish. High-fashion drapery, free-flowing textiles and beautiful cuts complimented dresses, pinafores and contemporary feminine light-weight suits. The colour palette was candy striped pastels and then bold contrasting monochrome with an echoing theme of beautiful printed birds; creating the ethos of “the bird’s flight to freedom”. This collection was timeless and filled with rejuvenated energy. This collection is absolutely my favourite so far.

Susnyara “Kardia” Spring Summer 2016 SS16 “Creating New Urban Legends” at New York Fashion Week. Designed by Nina Susnjara. Lulu Williams favourite collection of NYFW.

Susnyara’s SS16 collection “Kardia” blew me away at New York Fashion Week. The collection itself is a romantic palette of pastel shades with a whisper of bronze. Unpredictable cuts and stunning drapery lends the feminine collection a hint of delightful chaos. Just enough to understand the inspiration of urban streets and modern day street fashion that play as ingredients behind these dreamy designs.  Nina Susnjara designs with the contemporary woman’s figure in mind, making her collection wearable but at the same incredibly special.

Susnyara is definitely one to watch.

Broad Bean & Pea Soup Recipe. This is seriously easy, vegan, vegetarian and very delicious. A great way to use frozen vegetables.

Frozen vegetables are a must for anyone who doesn’t have the patience or time to prepare and make delicious home cooked meals daily. I make soup every day for lunch and it takes me about 15 mins. This soup is deliciously flavoursome and full of nutrients. The almonds create a creamy taste and the sumac adds a touch of sweetness. Eat it at lunch or dinner with a hot portion of garlic bread. broad bean pea easy soup frozen vegetables nutrients autumn warming healthy vegan vegetarian almonds lulu williams yummy quick

First of all heat a frying pan with two tablespoons of olive oil. Add the chopped red onion and fry till soft. Once soft, add the four chopped garlic cloves and the sumac.

Once soft add the four chopped garlic cloves and the sumac.

Put the frozen vegetables all in one saucepan and boil on a high heat for 6 minutes.

Once the frozen vegetables have boiled put them on the side to cool. Add the almonds to the garlic and fried onions and continue to fry till the onions are crispy.

Once the veg have cooled put them in your Nutribullet or smoothie maker, add half the onion mixture and one cup of the water used to boil the frozen vegetables in, blend till roughly smooth. Put the soup in to a saucepan and add salt and black pepper to your taste. I like lots of black pepper!

Stir till hot, ladle in to a bowl and sprinkle the remaining onion mixture on the top. Serve with buttery toast or garlic bread.

Fashion Flashback: 1970s inspiration for my A/W 2015 wardrobe

As well as being a record collector I am a collector of vintage clothing; starting at the 1940s up to 1980s. I am not a huge fan of the 90s as it screams Topshop/student at me. It seems like yesterday that I was going to New Look in Hammersmith to buy cargo trousers, butterfly hair clips, belly chains and a crop top emblazoned with “Bad Attitude”. It’s too soon to bring it back in a stylish way.

I don’t care about your Moschino belt and no I don’t want to buy this season’s ironic combat trousers. Maybe in 20 years I will embrace the 90s but for now I am thrilled that the 1970s is back.

So I am finally better. Although my hands are still filled with ouchy pain and my arms are very stiff. I haven’t posted on www.LuluWilliams.com in a while due to not being able to use my hands at all. Apart from clicking – which has been useful when shopping online. Wink wink.

I treated myself to the ASOS denim pussybow blouse. Being a great lover of double denim it’s a fab wardrobe essential for me. This shirt is great for wearing with this season’s hottest textile – suede. It’s great with leather or PU and fab for dressing down pencil skirts. I love matching it with my high-waisted boyfriend jeans and vintage printed heels.
