Lush Oxford Street Haul #1

One of my top places to visit this year, was Lush Oxford Street. After reading up online about some of the Oxford Street exclusives, and hearing about the ever popular Frozen bath bomb, myself & my sister headed up there and filled baskets full of goodies.
Bath bombs to try - The Experimenter, Intergalactic, Frozen & Guardians of the Galaxy. I also purchased Skydancer to try after seeing many Instagram videos of it in action.
The Prince of Darkness & Cup O Coffee Face Mask - The coffee face mask is a big tub, and smells gorgeous ... I don't like coffee to drink, but absolutely love the smell!
A new body spray scent named after one of my favourite songs; Uptown Funk - pricey at £25, but one spritz is more than enough.
& I brought a new lipstick to try out 'Passionate' - I am a lover of red lipsticks, but decided to try a hot pink, and the shade is long lasting, and fabulous. What have been your Oxford Street buys?

24 Things You Should Know

I collection of 24 random facts about yours truly...
1. My lucky number is (unsurprisingly!) 24.
2. I've had hair in a range of colours, and the best was red on top with pink underneath, and it was accidental.
3. My first pets were goldfish called Vic and Bob.
4. My middle name is Lillian & that is spelt wrong (should be Lilian) but I spelt it wrong for the first sixteen years of my life, and I prefer it with two l's.
5. I'm 5'2"; I used to be the tallest person in my class when I was 11, but I stopped growing and in the end, ended up being the shortest!
6. I have lots of pets, and many are named after tv characters/celebrities/songs. Cece was named after Cece in 'New Girl', and my hedgehog Kate was named after Kate Moss.
7. A few years ago, I travelled around different countries in Europe in a week.
8. & the day before I left for Europe, I skydived.
9. I've tried countless times to learn how to play Minesweeper... and I just cannot get my head around it...
10. ... however try me at Sims, Crash Bandicoot, Just Dance or Super Mario and I'll easily beat you!
11. Deciding on the name 'Dear Wildflower' originated from a love of writing combined with the seeds sent through when my family dog, Tash died a few years back... it was instantaneously decided in my head that wildflower needed to be a part of my writing.
12. Roald Dahl is my favourite author, Matilda being my favourite book... Miss Honey is my inspiration for sure.
13. My biggest fear is frogs/toads... so much so that this one time I saw one on the TV and dropped my iPhone into the pint glass of water I was holding, because my body turned to jelly.
14. I tend to say 'this one time' and my parents often point out that I am basically the ginger one from American Pie.
15. I have quite a long list of "embarrassing" crushes... these range from Max Branning to Phillip Schofield!
16. I also have a list of desserts that should never ever have been invented and trifle is top of the darned list!
17. I have odd ways of eating food, especially cheeseburgers.
18. I discovered hummus for the first time this year, and it was a complete game changer!
19. I'm a lover of accents, and secretly wish I could pull off an irish accent!
20. I rarely get out of my face drunk, one time I was in Soho, and 'drank' a shot of salt which I thought was tequila and then began frothing at the mouth.  It was a tragic yet hilarious moment of my life.
21. I wear the same jewellery every day and each piece has significant meaning to me.
22. I believe everything happens for a reason, and in fate but I also believe in creating your own fate.
23. I love being organised but for the life of me, I really struggle to keep my personal space tidy.
24. A genuine life goal is to play and win a game of Chardee Macdennis a'la 'It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia'.
