Lush Day

Yesterday I spent an amazing day with two of my best girlfriends in Atlanta. Our day began with a delicious lunch where I consumed a fresh lemonade+ginger+vodka concoction that was out of this world. We then perused the Da Vinci exhibition at the High Museum of Art and finally we went on a little shopping spree at Lush. I had never been to Lush nor tried any of their products but one of the aforementioned friends raved about the eco-friendly, handmade, cruelty free, often vegan beauty products. Needless to say, I left with a sea salt scrub shampoo, a dry bar heavenly smelling shampoo, a garlic face mask, a little pot of solid perfume, and a plethora of free gifts. With my purchase, I was even able to donate a small amount to Dr's Without Borders.

Sugar Scrub $4.95
Big $21.35
Godiva Dry Shampoo $9.25
Karma Solid Perfume $7.95

I just used the garlic face mask and my face feels amazing (fresh face masks are only available in stores)! All of the products come in recycled containers with a little picture of the person who made them. If you return 5 of the black containers to a store, you even get a free face mask. I may have just my new beauty product go-to brand. If you're in the market for eco-friendly or fair trade body products or if you are simply looking to indulge a little, I definitely recommend Lush. I also recommend spending a day with friends at an art museum, nothing is more inspiring.

I love Lush soooo much! That is one major thing I miss (I just moved from Cleveland to a tiny town in MN). I'm allergic to everything, so I use their soap, solid shampoo, condition, hair treatment, face cleanser, massage bars, scrub and lotion... it can be expensive, but is totally worth it.

The High Museum is amazing.
