Lavender Cupcake Recipe

I made some cupcakes for work this week, below is the recipe I used, it makes one dozen. I used regular icing from the grocery store, I used a ziplock bag as a pastry bag to decorate the cupcakes. I also had four cute orange floral toothpicks to decorate a few of them too.

Lush Haul for the Summer

I decided to treat myself with a Lush shopping trip. I decided to get some new items for my bath.

Bath Bomb: Sakura

The scents of mimosa and jasmine with the feeling of spring. I haven't used it yet, but I love the scent! It smells relaxing and it's not overpowering. Click here to buy this bath balm. I will do a review after I've tried it out. 

Face And Body Cleanser: Angels on Bare Skin

The kaolin clay base deep-cleanses while finely ground almonds and lavender gently exfoliates dry skin. I really like this on my skin, it's great for face and body. Previously, I've used the Mask of Magnaminty, however it dries my skin every time I've used it. For another good cleanser you can try the charcoal based Dark Angels. To purchase Angels on Bare Skin cleanser, click here

Bubble Bar: Milky Bath

Moisturizing cocoa butter, skimmed milk and olive oil for supremely soft skin, with the scent of orange oil. his was very nice, I enjoyed the relaxing bubbles and foam that came out of just using a piece of this bar. Though, I did have to break up some of the pieces while I was in the bath. You can purchase this cute milk bottle shaped bar here.
