I’ve always been impressed with Lush’s charity work, where I’m informed that globally in the last financial year they’ve raised over £3,000,000 supporting small charities, campaigns and organisations working in the areas on environment, animal protection and human rights. I love that you can go into any Lush store and the staff are so passionate about the products and what they’re supporting; always full of facts and information about where the profits are going.

Last week a new campaign kicked off for the sensationally scented company with their #GayIsOK campaign which aims to raise £250,000. When the press release first dropped on my desk at work it raised a few eyebrows amongst colleagues who were quick to question what the motive of the campaign was, but far from being an excuse to sell delightfully camp golden soaps, it aims to spread awareness of LGBT rights across the world as human rights, where shops will be aksing their customers “what if your love was illegal?” and encouraging them to post selfies with the campaign’s fundraising product – the aforementioned glittery gold soap.

Lush Easter Collection 2015

Since my festive tour of Lush at the end of last year, I have become something of a Lush mega-fan. I now look forwards to nothing more than a hot bath with a bomb or melt – with a g&t in hand, and The Good Wife on Netflix propped precariously on the tub too of course! I love that Lush brings out a new range of goodies each time a seasonal celebration comes around, and the the cutest excuse of all… roll on Easter.

December beauty favourites

Happy New Year beauty fans! For me 2014 felt so fast. It was a great year for progressing personally at work, having so much fun with my friends, visiting different countries, and doing some serious partying. But 2014 was also a great year for beauty! It’s almost been two years now since Charlotte and I started writing beauty features for Cambridge Edition Magazine, and we’ve learnt so much. I feel good about leaving 2014 behind with a last favourites post for December before getting stuck right into 2015, and all the fabulous discoveries yet to make.

Still stuck for festive beauty gift ideas? One of our favourite last-minute-present-solvers is Lush, which for us can be found in Cambridge’s Lion Yard (as with all Lush stores, simply follow your nose to track it down). We were recently invited for a late-night tour of the store’s range of Christmas goodies, and the friendly and enthusiastic staff kept us talking for almost two hours – there really was a huge amount to talk about.
