Good Morning everyone, happy Sunday! I hope you’ve all had a wonderful week and weekend?
It was my sister’s birthday last week and as her gift from George and I, I went to visit her and stay the night. I went Thursday just gone, I went on the train and it was a great journey.
She lives near Lincoln so we met there for a little retail therapy and some delicious lunch. I’m still trying to being low/zero waste when it comes to shopping and I decided to pop into Lush to get some zero waste beauty products.
I had just finished my usual Shampoo and face cleanser and decided that I wanted to purchase new ones that were sustainable and didn’t come in plastic. The ladies in Lush were just wonderful, they helped me select a couple of products that I was looking for and even sister got a new cleanser.
I got a cleanser called ‘Jade Roller’ which takes off my makeup and another makeup remover that was designed like a cotton pad — it was so cool and you can use it to remove makeup by getting in wet and rubbing it between your hands and it will form a balm type consistency, which will remove your makeup.
The shampoo bar is also a conditioning one too and I’ve used it once already and love it! It smells delicious and makes my hair super soft! It’s so funny how you use it too, you basically get it wet and rub it all over your head until it forms a lather and then you massage the lather into your hair (like you would with any other shampoo).
What I love about these products is that they will last me a long time and it’s my first step to zero waste beauty 🙂
I also purchased this gorgeous cloth bag that is made out of pieces of material designed to help the environment. The best thing about it is that you can use it multiple ways and get a little guide on how to make different wraps and bags.
I didn’t need anything else during our shopping trip so we headed for some lunch in this beautiful vintage inspired tearoom called ‘Bunty’s’ You get to it as if you’re walking to Lincoln cathedral up the steepest hill I think I’ve ever seen! I definitely found it a struggle, but the determination side of me wanted to get there and achieve it and we did!
We had a delicious lunch and cake at Bunty’s tearoom and then continued up the hill to look at the cathedral — it was such a gorgeous building.
In the evening we had a lovely pamper session where we used our new Lush products and did a face mask 🙂 it was so lovely spending time with my little sis.
On Saturday I was quite tired and resting in the morning and then I got a phone call from my pops who was surprising me by bringing my Nana to see George and I! George has just received a new job offer at work that he’s wanted so badly and he works so hard so when they accepted him, we were all so happy and proud that my pops also said he was treating us to lunch.
We went to this lovely garden centre where we had some good food and a look around. I love garden centres because I always find them relaxing and peaceful — I was also finally allowed a Bonsai tree!! 😀 George said that I was allowed on if I looked after it, so we chose one and it came with a booklet and now it has pride of place in our living room.
We had a truly wonderful day with dad and nana and loved every moment of it 🙂
I’ve put some photos below of the lovely times I’ve had over the last couple of days.
I hope you all have a wonderful week and I’ll see you next Sunday 🙂
Lots of Love
