Lush Lemony Flutter Cuticle Butter

Standard

Hi it’s Lush Granny again!
Today I must tell you about a great Lush product that I have used a lot. (As you can see from the picture) The product is Lemony Flutter Cuticle Butter.

Perfect for softening our hardest bits: knees, elbows, heels, brittle nails and cuticles finally get the attention they deserve. Lemony Flutter revives a traditional method of cream-making that even the Romans would recognise. A little goes a long way, and within just a few applications, those neglected areas will be rejuvenated and smelling delicious, just like lemon curd.

The above blurb is from the Lush Cometics web site but describes it perfectly. I like the bit about “The Romans” It is quite a thick cream but soon soaks in to the cuticles etc. I bought mine from Lush Chester and use it all the time.
Give it a go for gorgeousness!

Christmas Wrapping

I am am a self confessed fan of Lush Handmade Cosmetics http://www.lush.co.uk

Following a random poll of my friends it seems it’s a “Marmite” reaction to Lush shops, you either love it or hate it! Well I love it!

This Christmas they are offering a gift wrapping service using scarfs to wrap the chosen gift. This is “Knot-Wrap By Lush” a reusable fabric package in a Japanese style. Lush suggests wearing the fabric as a scarf or a belt, or do the traditional Japanese thing and kindly hand it back to be used again. The ultimate recycling . Personally I think that the scarves are too gorgeous to give back I will treasure mine!

I called into the Chester Lush shop to take these pictures. I also love their “Lemony Flutter Cuticle Butter” a real treat for softening hard bits around nails. No wonder I have fabulous nails Ha! Ha!

Enjoy your Christmas wrapping wherever you are this year!

Nails and Puffs

For a few days my sister and I have taken our Mum for a short holiday to Blackpool. Mum loves to shop till we drop! We are staying on a lovely hotel with good food and bad weather! The weather is awful but we can seek sanctuary from the storms in shops and coffee houses. Today we have had a pampering day. We all had our nails manicured and had a Shellac varnish. This was a first for all of us as we were all nail bar virgins! I adore this photograph as for me it symbolises the love and connection between Mother and Daughters.

I have spent some time perfecting the art of knitting these hexigan puffs. They are knit using sock yarn which is a three ply quality. Once you know how, they are simple to make and I am now taking forty minutes to complete each one. They will eventually be made into a cosy quilt. The pattern is from Tiny Owl Knits on Ravelry and is known as “The Beekeepers Quilt”
