Having not posted for more than 3 weeks now I felt like the time had come to do something! With the stresses of starting university again (especially in final year :/) blogging has definitely taken a back seat, whilst work and getting back into the norm of life here has taken over.
But that doesn't mean I've given up, in fact I've decided to dedicate a couple of hours every few days so I can get back into the groove...yes groove, of writing frequently again. I'd love to know since I've been away from the 'blogosphere' for a while how you guys have been getting on, any news? Any new note worthy blogs to read?
But ok, I know, let's get to the good stuff. Halloween is a mere two days away! And of course there is a myriad of products that have been released for this spooky occasion. I loved having a look at some of these new ranges, like the detailed nail wrap designs by a few different brands and Lush's original take, but something that really caught my eye was Philosophy.
They really have gone all out, and I've struggled to find another brand who have captured not only the 'scary side' of this month, but also the warmth and sweetness that fall offers. Everything is so incredibly enticing, to the point where my thought process seemed to consist of "Om nom nom nom".
The Trick or Treat Halloween gift is lovely and so original, with such creative packaging...and the
flavours ahem, scents of the all-in-one bubble bath, shampoo and showers gels above really may have you drooling.
The 'caramel apple' and 'fresh baked apple pie' particularly caught my eye, causing me to stop, pause and contemplate withdrawing my credit card...
Philosophy not only offer skincare, the range also incorporates lip glosses that are described as 'high gloss' and 'high-flavour'. Hmm a lip gloss that tastes of caramel apple, yes please! Not only is this a stunning shade, but Philosophy also promises that it hydrates, soothes and softens lips.
These last two products are really all I could fit in without going too crazy, but there are definitely still many worthy products to look at and ponder over in the range. The Candy Corn and Pumpkin Spice Muffin though are really products I had to share! The Pumpkin Spice Muffin is a product chosen by Philosophy's Facebook fans and is currently a limited addition, whilst the 'I Love Candy Corn' shampoo, shower gel and bubble bath has made a special re-appearance for this month. Again both win top marks in my book for originality. The sound of these amazing scents is making me want the next two days to go a bit quicker just so I can have a justified reason to gorge on caramel apples and candy corn :p
You can find this range and more at Philosophy's website here.
I'd love to know if you've tried out any of these products and your thoughts, or your favourite Halloween product.
