The Cat Craze

I was shopping in Macy's yesterday and every other garment had a cat face or a cat print on it. What is with cats being all over everything!? Now, don't get me wrong I like cats, they're okay, but I don't want them all over my clothes! What are your thoughts on the cat craze?

The Cat Craze

My opinion: there are some cats you can't resist (see: kitten in red glasses above), but then there is cat overload. I'm not saying I will never own a cat print item, but so far everything I have seen has been a bit much.
Thought of the day: It is possible to become a cat lady without actually owning a cat? With this recent trend, the waters will definitely be tested.

Lush Goodies

A few weeks ago, I altered my morning and evening face routine. It has been awhile since I changed up my facial products, and I was a bit hesitant at first, but my skin has never been more healthy and glowing! And it's all thanks to Lush!

Everything I use is from Lush and I cannot believe the results! I cleanse my face using the amazing Fresh Farmacy bar. This little bar lathers like no other! I just break off a little piece and it lasts me about a week and a half! There is a little bit of grit to it for exfoliating, but it's very minimal so it's not overkill for my skin.

After cleansing comes my favorite part- the toner water- Breath of Fresh Air. This stuff is a skin saver! It hydrates and tones my skin, making it feel so fresh and rejuvenated. Sometimes I just spray it on throughout the day for a fresh little wake up shot.

The last and final step of my routine in applying a bit of facial moisturizer. It took me some convincing to splurge on this product. Enzymion is about $40 per container, but I swear by it. I took home a sample to test out and I didn't think I would end up spending that kind of money. After three weeks of using the smallest sample, I knew I had to go back and buy it. I apply this while my skin is still a bit damp from the toner water. Moisturizers and lotions work best when skin is wet because the product absorbs better into the skin (Thank you Lush consultant!). I use just a dab of this twice a day and my skin has never looked better!

If you have never tried Lush or are looking to refresh your beauty routine, I cannot say enough wonderful things about Lush!
