LUSH haul of 2019!

This year’s haul: Charity Pot (rm50), BB Seaweed face mask (rm77), Butterbear soap (rm35), Sleepy soap (rm46) and Aurora Borealis body scrub (rm30).

Sounds like a grand title, doesn’t it? Yet truthfully, this is the one and only time I ever bought anything from LUSH Malaysia store this year. I did attempt to drop by Pavilion a couple of times earlier this year but time and the KL city traffic just hate me. So just like last year, I finally made it to the Pavilion store, in the last month of 2019! It was Monday afternoon in December; where every mall possible is filled with Christmas decorations.

One thing I noticed upon entering the store is, it wasn’t as heavenly scented as it was back in December 2018. I personally love the overwhelming scent; it’s what makes a LUSH store distinctive. However I guess they take customers’ feedback seriously thus the toning-down of the store scent? My theory. 🤷‍♀️

No bath bombs nor bars in this year’s shopping cart.

Next I moved on to the racks and rows of lovely LUSH products. I actually had a screenshot in my hand of four items I planned to buy, but with my six-year-old butting in plus pretty products everywhere, I ditched the ‘shopping list’ and followed my intuition instead. Haha!

No regrets. It’s December; my birthday month and God knows when will I ever have the chance to visit the store again. (Nope, I tried their newly-launched local website but they sucks) The result; I walked home with a brown LUSH shopping bag filled with 5 items worth RM238. A woman’s gotta splurge once a year. 😎

EDITED: Few days after this shopping trip, LUSH Malaysia announced they’re opening another store in Sunway Pyramid in late December.  YASS!

Check out how thick Sleepy is. It actually weighs a little over 130g.

Did you get anything from LUSH this holiday season? Let me know in the comments section. 😉

December, baby

Here comes my favourite month of the year! What’s not to love about December? It’s a month of holiday seasons, be it Christmas or for us Muslim folks in Malaysia, it means month-long school holiday! It’s also the month when sales are everywhere so if you feel like some tropical vacation to end the year, please come over to this country, shop ’till you drop and help boost our economy. *ha!* 

Most importantly, December is the month I a turn a year older. Being a December baby does have its perks; you are eternally a lot younger than your peers. And because December is the end of the year, a birthday in December doubles as a time to recap the year and prepare us for the following year to come in January (translation: New Year resolutions). 

Have a blast in this final month of 2016!
