I Chopped off all my Hair!! - Life lately

Hello everybody, welcome back to my blog. I hope that wherever you are in the world you have been having a great week. Mine has been a little stressful, since I made a rather spontaneous decision to cut my hair to my collarbones (My hair was almost down to my waist before I got the chop!).

I have to admit, I was super nervous walking in to the hairdresser, and even more nervous when she got out her scissors. The only other time I've cut my hair short was when I was 10, I cut it to my shoulders and HATED it with a passion. I so desperately wanted my hair to be long again, and it didn't help that all my friends at school had lovely, long, flowing hair. 
I think the reason I hated it was because I didn't find it girly enough. I was and still am a very girly person, and I felt like my hair didn't portray the right 'image'.
Before /// After

However this time around, almost exactly 5 years later, I've really love it. I don't find it says anything bad about me, it looks healthy, and its a lot easier to maintain, i also love how bouncy it is now, I feel like that shows my bubbly, and energetic character.
I'm not going to lie though, I have had a few mini freak outs throughout the week as I realize what I've done, I almost died when I found out I couldn't do a bun, but I'm going to make the most of short hair, and embrace it before I grow it out again.

In other news, we went stationary shopping today, and it was not a happy reminder that school starts in a week. I can't believe how quickly these holidays have gone, it feels like the last day of school was just yesterday! It will be nice to see all my school friends again, but I am so not ready for all the exams and projects that are sure to come my way this year. I've never been all that good at getting organized and doing homework, and there'll be so much more pressure this year, I don't know how I'm going to handle it. I'm sure there will be plenty of posts about that for you in the next couple of months.
My younger siblings go back to school two days before me, so It'll just be me, Mum, and my older sister who is going to uni this year. It'll be nice to have a catch up with them, because although we live in the same house, I hardly get to have a proper chat with them in between entertaining my crazy siblings and entertaining myself via social media, you know what I mean? I'm hoping for a couple of coffee dates just to talk.

What was meant to be a wee recap of the past week turned into a massive essay, but I hope you enjoyed this post, see you next time.

Lush Review: Intergalactic Bath Bomb

Its been so long since I have done a lush review, in fact I think my last review was back in October. So this post is long overdue.

I actually bought this bath bomb on boxing day, when everything was half price. This particular bath bomb could only be bought in a gift box, as it is from the Oxford St range, which can normally only be bought from the Oxford St shop.

I was extremely excited to try it once I saw the bright colours, and was not disappointed when I dropped it into the bath. This is by far the most beautiful bath bomb I have ever used. As you can imagine it fizzes away blue, pink and yellow, and it leaves the bath a lovely deep blue. It really does make you feel like you're in space!
I interested in the smell of the bath bomb as well, because instead of your classic sweet or floral lush product, this bomb had an incredibly strong minty scent. This scent was so strong, I think it could clear up someones sinus in minutes! Before i popped it in the bath i swore i would hate the smell, it was just too strong, but I actually really like it. I wouldn't be able to use it everyday, but every now and again this would be a lovely and refreshing treat.

While I do love this bath bomb and the beautiful colours it makes in the bath, I wouldn't recommend to just anyone because of its strong scent, it would have to be someone I know can handle stuff like this.
I'm now really keen to try out some other Oxford St products, and see if they are as different  and amazing as the intergalactic bomb. Who knows when I'll be able to get my hands on something, but I'll let you know when I do!

Have you tried any of the Oxford St products? Let me know what you think in the comments!
