How to get a Lush black bath bomb cocktail

I'm more of a shower girl than a bath-taker so bath bombs aren't normally at the top of my beauty wishlist. That said, if there's a suitably sniffable treat from Lush on offer, you won't find me saying no.

In the last few weeks I've been lucky to attend a VIP event and a bloggers' night at Lush in Swansea. The girls there are so much fun to be around, and always have tons of hints and tips on offer. This time round it was all about bath cocktails.

Brewing up a black cocktail...
So if you don't know, serious Lush lovers are all about trying new products, mixing scents and colours, and getting some creativity into bathtime. This means dropping bombs and melts in together, crumbling up bubble bars, adding sparkles...basically whatever you want to create the best bath.

Black bath bombs have been seriously trending the last few months, though Lush don't currently stock one of their own. But rather than leave us wanting, one of the in-store teams has come up with a cocktail that creates an aromatic, sparkly, and most importantly black as the night bath.

The lighting's not great but the black sparkly goodness is all there!
The lovely Ellie at Swansea Lush shared this brilliant little recipe from one of the other stores, and let me tell you it not only looks incredible but smells amazing too. All you have to do is combine one Lord of Misrule bomb with a sparkly pumkin bar and let them bubble up into something that looks like the night sky. It'll not only satisfy your inner emo but smells like a glass of mulled wine too - just what we need now autumn is here!

Returning to an old friend

It's been nearly a year since I posted here. I'm not sure why it's taken me so long - I've had ideas, drafts, and have jotted down plenty of other blog notes, but the impetus to hit publish just never came.

As you would probably expect, things have changed a heck of a lot in he last 12 months: I've got a fantastic new job, have bought a house of my very own and, last but definitely not least, have become engaged to my best friend and love of my life.

So I think it's safe to say I've been a little bit busy.

But I miss this little space. Over the years it's been a source of new friends and adventures and I hope that you'll join me again as I pick my virtual pen back up and start scribbling again.
