Lush Bath Bomb: Dragon's Egg

Hey guys,
I'm a huge lover of Lush, and more importantly they're bath bombs. I love the colours, the smells, the names. I just love them. So today I thought I would talk about my favourite bath bomb. The Dragon's Egg.

I love pretty much everything about this egg. It smells exactly like lemon sherbet and I don't know about you but I love the sugary scent of sherbet, although it does make me hungry. The outside of the bath bomb is white but as it fizzes and crackles it reveals an orange inside and it turnes your water a pretty shade of orange which I assume is meant to mimic a dragon's fire-y breath? Or is that just my Literature side coming out and I'm reading to far into this, oh well. It's a really pretty colour and I like that I don't have to worry about it staining my skin, which is always a fear when using bath bombs with a colouring.

Sorry about the quality of the photos, I didn't exactly want to take my camera in the bath with me so I took them on my phone instead. My camera didn't capture just how pretty the colour was and how bright it was but it was the best I can do, just trust me, the colour is super pretty!

This bath bomb makes my skin feel really smooth so it's the one I always go for if I'm just in the mood to relax, what's your favourite bath bomb?

Tips and Tricks Tuesday #12

How To Find Out What Your Undertone Is

Hey guys,
I only found out what my undertone was a few months ago and it's been really helpful when I'm picking out colours for makeup, jewellery and clothing as I know what colours will suit me best. I always thought it would be difficult to find out what your undertone is but it turns out it's really easy, and there's a few different ways for you to figure it out.

Check Your Veins
Cool - They look more blue.
Neutral - They may appear both or in-between blue and green.
Warm - They look more green.

Eye and Hair Colour
Cool - Eyes: Blue, Grey, Green.
           Hair: Blond, Brown, Black.
Warm - Eyes: Brown, Amber, Hazel.
             Hair: Strawberry Blonde, Red, Brown, Black.

Cool - Silver looks best on you.
Warm - Gold looks best on you.

The Sun
Cool - More likely to burn.
Warm - Tan easily.

I hope this helped!

I Cut My Hair!

Hey guys,
So many people have been cutting their hair shorter at the minute! Estee, ViviannaDoesMakeup and Emma Stone, to name a few, and every time I see pictures of any of them I just wanted to grab a pair of scissors and cut my hair. I didn't though!

I got my hair cut into a bob when I was in Year 8, and along with getting some blonde highlights, it scarred me for life. I didn't know how to curl or straighten my hair back then so it always looked terrible. However, I figured now that I know how to do all of that I would actually be able to manage short hair this time around.

I went to the hairdressers during the weekend and asked for her to cut about 2 inches off, but I think she got a bit confused hen  I told her how I was thinking of going for a bob and I think she may have thought that, that was what I wanted instead. Anyway, I came out with hair shorter than I had originally planned, but don't worry, I'm in love with it! She cut it to the length I would have gone to if I was going for a bob and I think it looks great, can I say that about my own hair? Oh well!

This is the length it was before:

(Not the best pictures but they're all I have at the minute)

I wish I'd gotten my hair cut earlier! It's so much easier to manage now! If you're thinking of going short just do it! I definitely don't regret it!

Would you guys be interested in some videos on how to style short hair?
