LUSH Mint Julips Lip Scrub: An Essential

The other day I purchased the Mint Julips Lip Scrub from LUSH. It was $9.95, and worth every penny. It expires in a years time, and I've deemed it an essential for not only cold weather, but the entire year. It's safe to say that I love this product! I'm a fan of LUSH products, and I will have another post for some other purchased products coming up. I like that everything they use is fresh, natural, is not tested on animals, and mostly everything is vegan. Their products are not toxic and you're really putting your money into good health for yourself. The scrub does exactly what you think it does. It takes off all those nasty chapped pieces and white bits of dry lips. You take a little bit and rub it over your lips. You move it around until all those nasty bits are gone, and you can lick it up! Mint Julips is a nice minty and sugary flavour that slightly pumps up your lips and leaves you with a nice minty taste in your mouth. There are other flavours as well, like Popcorn, and I can't wait to try them. I am completely satisfied with this product, and I can't believe I did without it before!

This lip scrub is a must have for cold weather, and will make the world of a difference to you (well, your lips)! If you have it, let me know what you think about it. If you have other LUSH products, let me know which ones you love because I'd like to try them!

Happy Autumn!

Autumn is definitely my favourite season and all around time of year! The crispness of the air, the colours of the leaves, thanksgiving, and my birthday all add up to a lovely time for me. This is just a general post for the seasonal things that I've prepared so far. I used a rainy saturday morning to pickle some veggies. I pickled radishes, cabbage, carrots, and red onions. For a general pickle, you use 2 cups of vinegar, 1 cup of water, 1 tablespoon of sugar and 1 tablespoon of salt. I added coriander seeds as well. You can boil the water before you make the mixture for food safety.

I made my own pumpkin spice latte from scratch, and I have to admit it was pretty delicious! Make coffee or espresso. In a pot combine 3 tablespoons of pumpkin purée (just the canned stuff) with about 3/4 cup of milk, brown sugar, and a pinch of pumpkin pie spice. Let it heat up and add it to a mug with your coffee! I topped it with more pumpkin pie spice to make it the ultimate latte!

I have multiple pretty pumpkins around my condo now, and they just add such a wonderful sparkle and piece of autumn. IMG_2193.JPG

 

This best shows my autumn mornings: Bingley, sleeping on my bed, being cute and cuddly. I'm so lucky to have this little guy! IMG_2189.JPG
