The year is almost over so I’ve put together a round up of my 2016 favorites! I’ve loved so many things this year and I’ve split them up into Beauty, Entertainment, and Lifestyle!
After making my own Lush-inspired bubble bars, I wanted to try out making other Lush products. I found a bunch of Pinterest pins on how to make DIY bath bombs, so I tried it out and it turned out great! It was super easy and really cool to customize the colors and scents with different essential oils.
I made a few batches of these bath bombs and I think I’ve found the best recipe out of all the different ones out there & I have some tips to help your bath bombs turn out great the first time!

If this year is like years past, Sephora will be having their 15% off Spring Sale for VIB Rouge in the next few weeks. — UPDATE: VIB Rouge 15% off event is April 7th through 13th (online promo code: ROUGENOTE). I’ve gone to the in-store events for the last few years and they’ve each been really cool. Check out my experience at the Spring Social event or the Beauty Before Brunch event from the past couple years.
This year, I already have my cart filled and ready to go so I thought I’d share what’s on my wishlist!
I absolutely love the Comforter Bubble Bar – hands down, number 1 favorite. I’m super sad they keep raising the prices, but I really love the smell, the pink, the bubbles — pretty much everything. Last time I was at LUSH, they gave me a sample of the Comforter Shower Cream but when I smelled it in store, I didn’t really care for it. Boy, was I wrong!!
On Cyber Monday, I bought a new bottle of Purity Made Simple facial Cleanser by Philosophy from Sephora. It was their $15 for 12oz. bottle; a pretty good value (although $5 more than it was in previous years).
In the checkout, I saw some super great holiday “rewards” from the Rewards Boutique for 250 points and 500 points. I know the rewards are limited quantities (did someone say Epic Rewards/ Epic Fail?), so decided to use my 3000+ points to redeem a few things.
