Make Believe

Make Believe floral Accessories

Make Believe is a simply stunning short-run site that I just stumbled upon whilst keeping an eye out for bridesmaids accessories while I write my Christmas Wishlist.

Very small amount of stock atm (their MEN section has items from the womens section in them that I’m not ENTIRELY sure pull off unisex) but what they have there are CERTAINLY statement pieces of emblematic gorgeous.

DO WANT! *catches glimpses of pie-shaped clouds*

It’s a nice day to… Staaart AAGAAIIIIN..!

VERY short and sweet this time, as I actually don’t have THAT much to say… You don’t believe me, I know, but that’s okay too. xD

Last Friday evening I decided to indulge in a bath in order to actually be able to sit up in the lounge with my flatmates instead of having to go to bed and being unable to pass Go. I ALWAYS ENJOY RECEIVING $200!

At random I pulled Lush’s White Wedding from the super pretty hand picked box of treats Greg’s Mum had given me for my birthday and toddled off to the bath with a REALLY SERIOUSLY CRAP HOLY GAWDS chick flick in hand. Hey, the film was bath ballistic theme appropriate, okay?

I dropped the ball in, delighted as I always do that it fizzed like the crazy volcanoes I used to make with friends as a kid, and wondered if it really smelled of anything. Okay so my olfactory function like … A non-functioning thing, but I’ve since read that apparently it pretty much doesn’t. Dysfunctional olfactory: 1, Lush bath ballistic: 0.

I clambered into the now-VERY-reminiscent-of-milk steaming water only to discover it felt JUST like water, and nothing else – DISAPPOINTMENT. Consoled that the water didn’t feel dry on my skin, I turned on the movie and around 20 minutes in commenced cringing. But the VERY weird thing is around then I also had to top the hot water up as the bath’s temperature had dropped through the floor at a rate I’d never experienced to date.

I’m not sure what kind of message Lush is trying to convey, maybe someone on staff had been viciously jilted at the altar? But is “Your White Wedding will turn cold on you” really the fairytale every girl wants to buy into?

Fragrance: 5/10 – I couldn’t smell much, but it didn’t smell bad…
WoSE (Water on Skin Experience): 5/10 – just felt like water, which I assume is the control. xD
Visual Aesthetic: 5/10 – the milky white water conjures the luxury of Cleopatra, the weird coloured confetti hearts though conjure a toddler dumping masticated cake in with you. UNFORTUNATE!
Leaves your skin feeling: exactly the same as it did before the bath
Clean up: None – even those masticated hearts go straight down the plug hole, no wating.

In conclusion, Lush advise if you’re getting married? Wear ANY colour but white…
